  • Excerpt: For the price its a whole lot of telly for what you get, I liked this tv so much I purchased a slightly smaller version of itself for the bedroom, the picture quality is really good unless your watching some sports through SD as you get some dragging on the picture whereas watching through HD is a whole lot better.
  • Pros: Good clear pictures, connectivity good and easy setup
  • Cons: Bad components inside tv itself, poor service from Samsung

  • Excerpt: -------------------------- SHOPPING FOR A TV -------------------------- Ahh .. shopping for a new TV - isn't it wonderful ? The joy of walking through the shops looking at hundreds of TV's that all look the same with that bloody blu-ray cartoon feed being screened on all of them, or the thrill of shopping online reading the specifications for the latest and greatest TV's whilst your brain pretends it actually understands the technical terms that keep being shoved in your...

  • Excerpt: What a fantastic bit of kit! It looks great, there is no judder or blurring on SD, and the picture is amazing with PS3. Sky HD is being installed next week, so looking forward to that. Really easy and intuitive to use, and lots of settings to play around with to get the best possible picture. The best settings for all input sources are listed on AVforums as the factory settings DO need adjstment.

Full HD goodness

  • Excerpt: This is a fine HD tv. A beauty to behold in fact. Anyone thinking of buying a large HD tv will know its an expensive business and not one you should just jump into willy-nilly. Being sensible and prudent, I did alot of research before i spent my money. Every review I read had nothing but good things to say about this Samsung TV. I was semi-wary, as I had never had a Samsung product before and was loyal to Sony. However, the price was good.
  • Pros: beautiful glossy tv, full 1080p, lots of inputs, easy to use .
  • Cons: settings suck out of the box

LE40R87BDX Great Picture, Average Sound.

Craiglf, Ciao
9 April 2008
  • Excerpt: I really like the look of the LE40R87BDX, with its glossy black finish i think it would look great in any home, a nice feature i picked up on immediately was the swivel stand which is a very nice idea. The speakers are hidden away and i think that just adds to the looks. The picture quality is quite impressive, i only watching with freeview but the picture is very good, with HD i think it would be superb, there are various picture setting tweaks as expected and a few...

  • Excerpt: The Samsung LEXXM87BD series televisions are very popular - and for good reason too. The LCD and Plasma HD industry is booming as more and more people switch to high def - a lot of manufacturers appear to have rushed getting their products to the market as soon as possible, often quality paid the price for this The image quality of this display is excellent, I have a Playstation 3 and a computer plugged into it (both of which can output HD content) and it really is a...
  • Pros: Image quality; internal sound; lots of inputs  +  outputs, beautifull
  • Cons: slow internal digital tv tuner, slow to switch inputs, default settings not ideal

Awesome TV, fantastic value for money

  • Excerpt: This was my television of choice having spent approximately 1 month researching the best buy, given a budget of £700. I am confident that I have made the right choice. Before getting into the technical side of things, the aesthetic look of the tv would look good in any surrounding. The design is minimalist and stylish, with a sleek black finish and silver trim along the base. The unit is lightweight and the base is small enough to put on just about any cabinet / table.
  • Pros: Great picture and sound quality, design and interface
  • Cons: None

  • Excerpt: When we wanted to replace our old TV for one with a larger screen size, it was a hard decision whether to go for a LCD TV or a Plasma TV! And what is the right size? After much debate with rest of the family, we agreed on buying a LC TV. We purchased this TV from Amazon website earlier this month. This TV was not our original choice. We ordered a Sony TV, but that one never got delivered. After 6 weeks of wait, we searched and went for this one.
  • Pros: Good picture quality, 1080p, lots of ports
  • Cons: Sound quality, location of speakers

Excellent TV, a serious contender.

  • Excerpt: This is probably the best high quality affordable HDTV on the market right now, certainly one of the best. It's a Full 1080P TV with every feature you need and different modes which excel in each area. The gaming setup (with Game Mode) is spot on if you want to hook up your PS3 or Xbox 360. The movie setup is great for DVDs and Blu Ray and the Standard TV Picture is good too.
  • Pros: Great Picture, Great Features, Low Price
  • Cons: None

Stunning TV

  • Excerpt: I decided to treat myself to an HD ready TV in the january sales. This isn't the one I originally went to buy, but I am glad I did! I managed to purchase this TV for £699! with Freeview. Its well worth shopping around before you buy. If this means anything to you the screen has a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, which I really don't understand but the picture is fantastic its very clear, I haven't experienced any shuddering or jerkiness even when playing the xbox.
  • Pros: Ease of use, great picture
  • Cons: none so far !
