     Samsung 559/558 over 556

    I work at a electrical shop and iv'e got one of these Tv's. This model of Samsung (558/559) you can only get on the internet and the shop version of this Samsung is the 556. Its the same TV but with a different frame, the 558/559 had buttons on the right hand edge of the TV and the 556 has touch sensors on the actual frame on the right hand side. This TV is a lot better looking then the 556 i think, also if you just brush past the sensors on the 556 it'll turn the channel, sound or mode and it gets really annoying after abit. I also bought myself a Samsung 1500 blu-ray player and because this TV is 1080p the quality is superb.

    If anyone was woundering the difference between 1080i and 720p is:

    1080i will be better quality but any fast movement will be a bit blury and 720p will not be as good quality but better on the fast movements, so 1080p is the best because it'll be good on fast movements and is also really good quality on the screen. So a 37" TV with 1080p is superb and at this price its brill.

     Great price, shame about TV quality

    Very fast delivery.
    I hooked up my XBOX 360 and it looks amazing on 1080P, However word of warning my SKY plus box picture quality doesnt look very good at all, its not sharp, cant handle lost of information on screen, even SKY HD looks good, but the other 300 channels will look just as bad.
    Also you need to upgrade your DVD player too to get full affect, oterwise your DVD's look like old VHS quality.

     Just what the Doctor ordered!!

    This is my third Samsung TV and its prefect. At this price it's a real bargin. I bought it mainly for playing xbox and the picture is perfect while playing games,because of the Game Mode Channel.As i'm using the Samsung surround sound system the sound is great but without it, the sound would just be ok. This is the only negative thing really. So to sum it up, nice TV at a nice price.Well worth buying.

     a must have tv!
