  Amazing

| | See all mooghead's reviews (7)

An outstanding looking piece of kit. Looks amazing with the matching upscaling Samsung dvd player cosmetic wise and picture wise (not sure if the dvd player is available on Play.com) 360 in hi def looks outstanding and tv through the sky box is great. The one thing that could be improved is the sound quality - sounds better without the audio enhancements but does have a graphic equaliser for you to create a custom setting. 5 stars, no hesitation.

  Nice

  Awesome Set For The Price

| | See all stud95's reviews (15)

I have recently purchased one of these beauties and i must say i dont regret it... first of all the looks and style to me are perfect, its stood on a glossy black glass stand and it looks the bee`s knees, secondly performance so far has been outstanding, freeview picture is very good ( but i did have a new aerial fitted when i moved in), I dont have a blu-ray or HD DVD player yet but using an upscaling dvd player just blew me apart... i have yet to rig up my xbox 360 but i have had my laptop hooked up and ive been watching some HD tv on it through the laptop. Theres a very good selection of connections around the side and back with 3 HDMI inputs for future proofing the set. My only very slight niggle is the sound quality, having come from a toshiba lcd to this one i have noticed a drop in sound quality, but that still hasnt put me off... Im loving my 37" samsung and at this price it puts the competition to shame.

  Perfect

This tv is absolutely spot on. I had many people say to go for a Sony before I bought it; but I've owned a Sony LCD in the past and I can honestly say that in my opinion the Samsungs are a lot brighter and better generally.

This tv is absolutely huge and more than enough for most people's needs. The images are bright and clear and high definition picture is simply amazing.

I have this in my bedroom and it pretty much takes up my entire window! All worth it though ;-]

Definitely buy this, you won't regret it!

For the price as well, its an absolute bargain. :]]

  Huge LCD bargain!

| | See all lucasisking's reviews (26)

After deciding to invest in a plat panel tv I spent nearly two weeks doing exhaustive research and shopping around- and finally settled on this model.

I was originally going for a 42" screen or higher, but let me tell you- this 37" screen is absolutely HUGE! When mounted on a flashy LCD stand, it dominates you lounge. First impressions are: wow. That's even before you turn it on.

Negative points- the user manual isn't that helpful. It took me ages to find out how to set up the freeview channels (which is actually dead easy by the way). The freeview image is fine (depending on the broadcast quality), but be warned: Analogue tv picture is absolutely atrocious so don't even bother with it. The remote is also beautifully designed but the buttons aren't very responsive so press hard!

DVDs (via upscaling player) look sensational. Particularly digital movies like the Pixar or new Star wars movies. Revenge of the Sith looks practically HD quality- I kid you not. DTV quality is also good but beware a little judder in fast moving scenes (typical for LCD screens). The picture in picture feature is brilliant too.

The game mode is useful in that it reduces the backlight to a softer level, which is good particularly if you have a less powerful console such as my Wii.

All in all, lots of features (most of which I haven't explored yet), great picture, sound & connectivity and a stunning looking unit. DVD performance is where it really shines.

Competitive price should seal the deal.
