     Great TV and an excellent price

    | | See all neilinoxford's reviews (1)

    I've had one of these pieces of kit since January 2006 and I've been extremely happy with it. I've had no problems with it at all and the picture is very impressive. The sound is also perfectly acceptable for general viewing.

    When I got this TV, it cost £640 and it was retailing at £800 in most places. I was happy with the price then so the current price is amazing (even with the new model including 2 HDMI ports is coming soon).

    The only 2 (minor) complaints I have about this system are:
    1) It only has one HDMI port (more of an issue now than when I bought it)
    2) Switch between inputs could be nicer as you have to step through each external input to get to HDMI rather than having AV1, AV2, AV3, VGA, HDMI buttons. It is however clever enough that if you have it on HDMI from watching a DVD (for example) but put on a scart source, it automatically shows the scart source. When you turn the HDMI device on, it automatically switches back to it as well.

    Overall, a very nice TV and exceptional value for money. If I was looking for a second TV (I prefer 40" + for a main TV) then I would happily buy or recommend one of these TV's, or any other of the TV's in the Samsung range.

     Be careful if using for gaming

    If buying a Samsung LE model, make sure that you first are aware that the tv set is only 50 hertz and not 60 hertz. The pc mode will run at 60 hertz using the vga lead with the xbox 360 and there is no problems, a good quality cheap lcd with good graphical output. I am not an engineer so you may need to research further, but with some games being 60 hertz if you are using component for your 360 ie 1080i you may find bleeding of colours etc if you buy the vga lead which is only 20 quid the 360 will upscale dvd to 720p so i have been informed on the web, and the picture quality is a much cleaner refined quality. The sound quality on my LE 23 although not bad isn't brilliant but I am using a samsung home cinema system with optical cable and 5.1 digital surround sound so this doesn't matter. Don't let me put you off the set, it is good value for money, just make sure you planned to or don't mind using the vga lead with the 360 because it looks much better than with the component leads. Good gaming see you on xbox live

     Great TV all round

    26" isn't massive but more cosy living spaces will look neat in any room. I have mine wall mounted in the master bedroom and it sounds and looks very cool. The in built freeview features are a bonus and the display when gaming using a PS3 or Xbox 360 is impressive indeed.

    If your looking for an entry level HD LCD TV that does not break the bank then this is well worth a look. Sure you might be able to get a larger size screen with a lesser brand but at the end of the day the quality of this and other Samsung products speak for themselves.

    Well worth a purchase.

     Great all round performer

    Great TV, rivals the best on the market. Brillient picture and sound, menus make it easy to navigate. Only reason its this cheap is they have just released new models but, at this price you shouldnt care.
    I paid a shed load more for this TV a year ago and i cant fault it. Expect it is a bit of a dust magnet.

     Excelent product

    As always a great quality product from Samsung, however i would be cautious if you are a HD enthusiast I am sure this Tv only supports 720p so if you want the full 1080p i would buy a bigger version of this TV which supports that as its native resolution. Great TV with a large amount of versitillity, im using it as a gaming TV/Sky/PC monitor and it is excelent in all features. I love the picture in picture feature which allows me to watch a program whilst working on my pc at the same time; the dedicated pc button on the romote is very usefull indeed.
