Summary: Ok, let me preface this by saying that I didn't buy this television, it was handed down to me by my brother. Nevertheless, I do own it and as such I am in a position to give a quick run-down on it. At 720p the screen won't be setting many hearts racing - however if you don't need your TV to be at the cutting edge, 720p isn't a bad place to be at. It's perfectly clear for my needs and many other peoples too, I would guess.
Pros: Well priced, especially 2nd hand
Cons: In-built Freeview tuner not the most capable.
4 year old tv that still holds up by today's standards
16 June 2010
Excerpt: Bought this tv for £830 (!!!!) in 2006. Samsung had this new range of tv's that offered top quality pictures at "low" prices - at the time. Now this tv has been moved to the bedroom to make room for a new 50" plasma in the lounge but 4 years on, its still going strong and the quality is still evident. Its not 1080p but it does have an HDMI connection. I have a media player that I connect to it and some of the HD stuff looks amazing.
Summary: I checked out dozens on TVs in different shops. Reviewed them on line. Asked people in the stores. This model kept coming up. I toyed with the idea of getting a larger screen, but 32-inch seems the maximum limit before grainyness creeps back in to the image. I haven't been so excited about a TV since I saw my first colour one all those years ago.
Pros: Excellent picture image and sound, black surround, great controls
If you're looking for quality, performance and value-for-money - get the Samsung LE32R41B.

Excerpt: If you are looking for a cheap, feature filled TV - This one has it all! This stunning LCD screen is definately one of the best TV's this year. It's low, low price (£874 from 247electrical.co.uk) thrashes other competitors producing similar High-Def 32" LCD's. I'll begin with the CON's: No major Cons, however there are a couple of minor points I thought I'd mention: - The TV never "turns off" completely, however stays on standby until unplugged at the wall, this is...
Summary: I would recomend the Samsung LE32R41BD whole heartedly, I think the picture quality, sound, finish, and design are outstanding for the price, I believe that even if you paid a couple of thousand pounds for a LCD TV, you still would not get one a lot better than this Samsung.
Pros: Very good picture, both on digital and analogue, (even though in our rented flat the aerial is poor reception). Sound is good through built in speakers
Cons: I can not think of anything I don't like about it, even though others criticize the remote, I quite like it.
An excellent TV and well worth a look in the showroom
7 December 2005
Excerpt: This TV is superb! The build quality is fantastic, from the box that it came in through to the remote control, and everything in between. I was going to go for the 26" version but after seeing the 2 together at a showroom I opted for the 32" version, and I am soooo pleased that I did. Installation was dead simple. The main unit slides down onto a base, very secure and positioned perfectly.
