Summary: As other people have said this is an excellent product, unfortunatly it its let down by poor backup from Samsung. I have been waiting for 2 months for a replacement board for my set and Samsung can give no expected date for delivery of this part. I am not alone in having this problem as my local dealer tells me he has had this problem before with similar models. A 2-3 month wait for spare parts.

Excerpt: "...with a great name like samsung behind it and their warranty its got to be the right choice. Only dissapointment is its not 1080p but its big brother is but at a cost. Using for Gaming and PC screen is great. Remote Control is excellent and full of features. Easy to setup and use. ...
Pros: Price, Quality, Features
Cons: Not 1080p but for this price what do you expect
Excerpt: "...best I have ever purchased. Samsung are by far the best retailers in most electronics, and there new LE 40 R LCD Tv model is no exception. I was in two minds whether to go for this Tv, or another popular brand, after much deliberation I decided to go with the Samsung, and I am exstatic that I did. The picture quality on this Tv is phenomenal. Vibrant colours, no displacement of pixels, and more importantly, no fuzziness which some LCD Tvs can give. ...
Pros: Fantastic Picture Quality, and sound
Cons: The box in which this product comes in is far too big
Excerpt: "...after a Samsung. I do like Samsung products, for the very simple reason, i have severail items around the house made by samsung that are reasonably priced and do tend to last such as a video camera and a microwave to name just a couple. I have the set mounted on the wall on a specially designed bracket. These brackets are anything from £60.00 to over £100.00 depending on where you purchase it. I think they are probably cheaper off the internet. The ...
Excerpt: "...and the look of this Samsung TV set is excellent and would look good in almost all rooms. The build quality is also first rate and it is a sturdy and solid product. The stand that comes with the set is good, however it looks even better ob the wall. I bought this from www.dixons.co.uk ...
Summary: the previous reviewer is incorrect - HD specs: 720i = 1280*720 interlaced (ie 50 fields (half a full screen) per second) 720p = 1280*720 progressive (ie 50 full screens per second) 1080i = 1920*1080 interlaced (50 fields per second) 1080p = 1920*720 progressive (50 full screens per second) only a screen with the full 1920*1080 pixels can natively display either of the 1080 formats without downscaling
Excerpt: "this T.V was purchased as a result of my CRT 28" Goodmans finally starting to die. the image on the screen of my crappy Goodmans went all pink, which is awful for watching football or snooker especially. I am now looking back and feeling glad of the situation as now i own one of the best T.Vs i will ever own. Granted the picture quality can't compete with Sony BRAVIA but they are only affordable to the wealthy and I'm certainly not. the contrast ratio ...
Pros: superb image sharpness and quality
Cons: my suuround sound system wont work effectivly with it

Summary: Ok just to put people in the picture (excuse the pun) 1080i is 1366x768 and 1080P or otherwise classed as True HD is 1920x1080 the screen resolutions are greatly different but If you want to be forward compatible look for the 1080P TV's as far as i am aware there aren't many broadcasts at this spec but blue ray dvd and hd dvd are at this impressive resolution rate. But if you have plans to hook your PC up as well I would definitely go for the 1080P Spec.
