 great tv.

| | See all jimbobbys's reviews (1)

First thing i noticed from opening the box and taking out the parts to put it together, was the build quality. The stand is well build and sturdy. You will need a screwdriver to put the tv together though, but its well worth it for the stand. The t.v also looks great with the crystal clear design. The t.v was also lighter than my old 32" lg lcd tv, which i didn't expect.

Screen Quality
The screen quality is what you expect from samsung, great picture and black levels. I didn't even notice any jagies(pixelated) edges on the freeview from distance. I am about 2.3/3 metres away from screen. I would say that u would prob would have to set the picture to your own settings, to one's own tastes. The power setting seem useless though, as it makes the picture too dark, in my opinion, even in the 1st option. For fast moving pictures like sports and gaming(fps's, racing) etc.. I didn't see any lag or ghosting, In all modes 1080p, 480p, 480i, 720p etc.. Tested them on old games with the required resolutions. The blue ray resolution is excellant too.

There is enough inputs on this t.v to make any one happy, 4x hdmi's, optical, headphone out, scart, vga. usb for listening to music or viewing pictures, though no moives, which is a shame, but we have our ps3's, blue ray player's etc.. for that.

The t.vs speakers are fine and do the job, I've read reviews with them sighted as a problem, though i thought they were fine. If your not happy with them you can always hook it to a reciever through the optical. Though the speaks are fine for general viewing of tv and tv films. Havent tried it with a dvd moive, don't see it as being a problem though, as all t.v speaks are known to be only usefull for general viewing, in my opinion.

The t.v is great value for money as it looks like it costs more than it does, which is a plus. It has full hd and all the inputs for this T.v to last for years. This is unless you want to upgrade to 42" or the new 3D screens coming out in the future.

 Awesome Telly

I spent a fair while trying to figure out which TV to go for to replace my old 32" CRT. I didn't want to spend a fortune, but also wanted something half decent. After a fair bit of research, I went for the Samsung Series 5 37" LE37B550, and I was not disappointed.

Delivered the day after ordering, out of the box and working within minutes. Connected up aerial for Freeview, Xbox360, Wii and upscaling DVD player and the picture on all of them is brilliant. Particularly pleased with the optical out for sound - only one cable to my amp, and managed to ditch my scart switch and my freeview box in the process, simplifying my setup.

The picture really is very good, can't comment on sound as I use my surround sound system, but for just over 500 notes you really can't go wrong. Highly recommended!

 Sublime Blacks

Had this TV for 1 month now and I'm blown away. The black levels are fantastic. I use mine mainly for PS3 / Xbox 360, Blu Ray and DVD's and the picture quality is amazing. Far better than I'd anticipated in fact. Build quality is also good. The only minus point is the weak sound however I have some good PC speakers plugged into the rear headphone socket so it isnt an issue for me.
This TV was recently awarded 5 stars by 'What Hi-Fi Sound and Vision' magazine. Buy with confidence.

 Top Quality

Great TV and thought I should point out that it does have freeview so ignore the comments that say it doesnt! Sound like most flat screens is poor, make sure you order a surround system and you then that problem is alleviated.

The Samsung Series 5 is a very nice looking TV, it has crystal effect glass case around the out edges of the TV which sets it off nice. Picture quality is from Sky (SD) is good, picture quality from PS3 at 1080p is excellent. I've read a lot of reviews for this TV and some mention poor sound quality, however I've found the sound is pretty good from the down firing speakers. All in all this is an excellent mid-range TV and great value for money, it would be hard to find better for less money.

For bigger items play.com use a courier company called 'Home Delivery network' (www hdnl.co.uk) who were ok, they call you to make sure you are home when they plan to delivery. I just wish play.com had told me about this process instead of me having to ring them a couple of times and ask to find out who the courier is and the package number so I could track it on Home Delivery Network's website.
