Awesome 32inch HD Ready CRT! Slimfit is Samsungs new product (well its been available in the US for a while now) but its a normal CRT telly but very very slim - No need to get an LCD/Plasma/Rear Projection now - you can get a Hi-Def telly at a fraction of the price and join the Hi-Def revolution.

A friend of mine went to see this in Comet last night and he couldn't beleive how thin it was.

...also a use for the £5 voucher from HotUkDeals birthday compo :)

Enjoy

A really excellent deal thanks Delerium.
#2
Read the review in one of this months what hi-fi or what video magazines. Not good. Go to your nearest newagent or wh smiths and have a read.
Poor colour bleed and the pic blurred on left and right edges of screen, only focused in the centre of screen,

A shame I fancied one of these.

Builtin freeview would have been nice to.

Some conversation about it here: http://www.avforums.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-331180.html

Personally, I'd rather pay the extra for an LCD, but this is a very good price for what you're getting delerium. Thanks for posting :)

Thanks for the further info...I wasn't considering a purchase but I'm sure the poor review will have some influence for potential purchasers.
#5
Looks nice from the front but still over 50kg so must still be very bulky!

Spooky - I went to Comet last night to have a look at this telly too - gonna get one tonight to replace my existing crappy Bush TV. I talked at length to another bloke who'd already bought one, and to the assistant at Comet...

...the bloke who'd got his said it was the best picture he'd ever had on a CRT telly, and if you don't wanna go for/spend out on an LCD or Plasma, this is clearly the best choice, and good VFM. He had a problem with colour bleed/pixels breaking up though - and it turned out he'd got his Sky box output set on the wrong setting - as this telly is 100hz, it's doing twice as much work as most tellies in 'writing' the screen picture and can be temperamental if you don't get your inputs right. He left satisfied that hte assistant had sorted it.

The assistant said that the next time Comet do a range-change, they're getting rid of CRT tellies in our local store. A smaller one near where I work hass all but done that already, and the specialist stores (eg. Richer Sounds) did this a while back... Snap one up now while you can!

Oh - with regards the picture blurring, that may be linked with the geometry of the screen - which you can change in the menus, btw...
#7
as mentioned in the avforums thread, geometry is compromised by the depth of the tube. Beam deflection of that magnitude will cause issues at the extremes of the screen. This is most simply proved when holding a toch a short distance from a wall. Angling the torch to either side shows that the light pattern elongates. In a TV this will cause adjacent pixels to become illuminated. Nothing you can change in the geometry settings will ever change this. It's a shame as this is the only CRT HD set available in the UK and the price is excellent.
#8
I found some nice big pictures, also showing the remote and other angles - just in case you're too lazy to take that long haul trip to Comet :)

It is much smaller than a normal CRT so need large (heavy!) magnets! The two Comet delivery guys were reallly struggling getting it into the house. They swore a lot because it was so heavy.

Got very slight geometry issues with my TV but really not noticeable whilst watching normal TV. Planet Earth in BBC HD looks beautiful on it.

Hi, says £385.99 on the Amazon page and not £389.55 as above :thumbsup:
#11
As above, reviews are mixed on these due to geometry issues. However some people have not had any problems.
#12
mumbojumbo
Not as good as the Amazon price, but helpful for those who prefer to deal with a real store (less hassle if things go wrong).


I would have thought it would be less hassle buying mail order. At least then they have to collect it if you are returning it rather than lugging it back to a store. Also these probably have an onsite warranty anyway.

You have the right idea but that's not quite correct. :thumbsup:

I'd recommend people to buy it online because if you don't like it (which does happen a lot if you read all the mixed reviews) then you can send it back. If you buy it from a Comet store then you cannot return (without their goodwill). People either really really love it or really really hate it.

Warranty probably by a Samsung engineer in both cases anyway.
