It didn't claim it was.

This is the best I've seen this model. Amazon had it for a while at £309, then it went up to £325 and then £320. It gets excellent reviews from all quarters, and is a Which Best Buy too. Hot.

Hot, very tempted to get one for my Xbox.

It is NOT a Which best buy. Quite far from it... Apologies for the cut and paste, Which. You can remove this if you like.

"Based on last year’s sales figures, it’s a good bet that the Samsung LE32B450C4W, a series 4 Samsung LCD TV, will be one of the bestselling TVs in the UK. But we don’t think it’s as good as the best on offer from Sony, Panasonic, or indeed from, Samsung itself. If you’re desperate for a Samsung, opt for the step-up series 5 instead (LE32B554).

Our experts thought that the picture on this 32-inch TV was aggressively stark, thanks to a mixture of edgy detail and harsh, bold colour. A snooker clip revealed smeary colour bleed, and the picture faded when viewed from an angle. HD pictures had excellent resolution and vibrant rich colours, but they spotted an odd yellow colour tint when watching off centre.

Like most Samsung TVs, audio performance is mediocre, but it doesn’t suffer from any major flaws. Nevertheless, our experts found that some lower frequencies were absent and though that the sound lacked warmth.

At just 63 watts, power consumption is astonishingly low – in fact it’s the lowest we’ve seen to date. If you’re determined to get it lower and don’t mind losing some picture brightness, another 20 watts can be shaved off by switching the energy-saving option to ‘high’.

It is fairly straightforward to use and set up, with some useful extras such as a picture-in-picture option on the EPG and good-sized buttons on the remote. However, the instruction manual lacks detail, which may be a problem if you’re not technically minded.

Extras are a little thin on the ground – but that shouldn’t be a shock at this price. It lacks a headphone input and USB port, and has only one Scart socket. However, a selection of digital and analogue sockets let you connect the TV to stereo or surround-sound amplifiers, or to a PC. It also supports audio description (additional narrative for visually impaired people), but we found that the AD logo can appear on programmes that don’t use the service.

Pros: Incredibly low power consumption, affordable price tag

Cons: Picture quality is not a patch on the step-up series 5 model"

I have this TV and it is used with Sky SD, connected up to my PS3 for gaming and Blu-ray and my laptop for steaming content to the TV.

I can confirm to those worried that there is motion lag on games that at least on my set there is no noticable motion lag and games play silky smooth. Blu-rays look great on the set and me nor my friend can notice the difference between this and his 42" Toshiba that is 1080p, probably due to the fact this is a 32" tv so 720p is ample.

Handles Sky SD well and picture quality is really good comapred to some other HD TV's that i have seen with an SD input.

As for the sound, it can get a little tinny if turned up load but at normal volumes i fine the sound to be good (Obviously if you want best sound then connect this up to a home cinema setup which can be done easily).

Streaming movies and videos from my laptop to this TV works well via a DVI to HDMI cable and i can view HD content direct from my laptop. The picture quality is good and have had no problems with this at all.

I bought mine for £318 from Comet online back in September so this is a decent price.
I would recommend this set as its brilliant value for money. :thumbsup:

*One word of warning which i read before buying the set was that apparently (i have not confirmed this, it is just what i read) there are a few different panels used by this model of TV that can have an effect on the quality.So it might be the case that you get unlucky or unlucky depend on the panel in your TV . I've included the link below that has a detailed review of the set and the panels are mentioned in the forum part at the bottom:

Might see if they will price match (JL) if its in stock at tesco near me.

If a TV is HD Ready, it means the resolution it displays is 720 which is what Sky HD currently provides.

Full HD means the resolution it displays is 1080 which PS3, Xbox 360's and BluRay DVD Players output providing very high quality images.

Apologies if the terminology is not quite 100% correct, but thats the general gist of it.

John Lewis in Bristol had/have this for £300, I pricematched at Richer Sounds and got it for £290 with 5 year warranty.

It is HD as in it displays at 720p (1280x720 pixels) however it is not full HD which is 1080p (1920x1080 pixels).

However if you read most reviews and info it will tell you that for most TV's you will not really notice the difference between 720p and 1080p on TV's that are 32" or smaller in size.

I already have one in our bedroom and its ace, hung directly onto plasterbord and its solid as a rock. Been waiting for the price to come down under the £300 as I need another 3 for sons and guest bedrooms. Thanks OP
#23
I bought a very similar Samsung TV a couple of years ago and have been very happy with it. Yes it only goes up to 720p, but since I use it almost exclusively for my Xbox 360 that is ideal.

The built in Freeview has great reception, and gets better picture quality than a couple of other freeview boxes I had tried with a previous TV. It also notifies you when software updates are available and very easy to install with a couple of button presses.
#24
I have this tv for about 3-4 months now. Brilliant, I thoroughly recommend it if you don't specifically need Blu-ray. Films look fantastic, the xbox 360 I have hooked up works flawlessly, never had a single problem.

Sky HD is 1080i as is all broadcast HD in Europe. The Sky HD box will however convert this to a 720p output if required, but the TV will probably accept 1080i also and scale and deinterlace this this tofit the 1366x768 panel. Full HD TV's have a 1080 x1920 panel and therefore no scaling is required only de-interlacing.

Here's a review from a good site http://www.hdtvorg.co.uk/reviews/lcd/Samsung_LE32B450.htm
It's probs the best value 32" tv you can get

Scroll to the bottom and you can compare the prices. 299 seems the lowest price at the mo
#28
I bought this TV 3 weeks ago at Additions Direct (£20 more but I don't have to pay until Feb next year) and it's great. In retrospect I might have gone for a bigger TV, but if you definitely want 32" then I can highly recommend this.

It looks fantastic with the PS3, I was amazed at how much better it looked than the 30" CRT it replaced.

A couple of minor gripes...the Freeview doesn't tell what you program is currently on if you flick through the channels. Also, the settings could be a simpler to use when getting the right picture settings for gaming. Had to go through lots of options to find a High Contrast mode...I believe some TVs have a simple 'gaming mode' which does the settings for you.

Like I said though, minor gripes, it's a great TV.
#29
anyone knw if there are there any Tesco direct codes floating about aswell like 500 / 750 / 1000 pointers considering your spending £300
#30
I got the 5 series version for £323 from VERY with a discount code and final cost to me could be as low as £285 if QUIDCO payment clears....top notch tv...dont know about the 4 series though esp since its not that much cheaper

Thanks for this. Wasn't aware Sky HD was only 720. Two questions: Do Sky intend to broadcast true HD at anytime soon and, if so, will this render the current Sky HD boxes obselete??

I tried one of these and took it straight back. The picture quality on SD material was awful. Faces didnt look at all natural and the whole picture was dissapointing to say the least. As it was to be a bedroom tv I didnt try any HD material on it as that wasnt what it was purchased for, so cant comment on that. Then paid a bit more money and bought the panasonic X range tv. What a difference, fantastic picture.

Did you have the right settings? In reviews, the SD picture quality is one of it's main strengths apparently.

From hdtvtest.co.uk: http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/samsung-le32b450-le32b450c-20090625155.htm

"Standard Definition

Herein lies the greatest strength of the Samsung LE32B450: it dealt with standard-def content better than any other 32-inch LCD televisions we’ve tested thus far. Scaling/ upconversion quality was good, capturing sufficiently sharp detail either off-air or from DVDs. Jagged edges in video-based material were cleaned up effectively, and digital noise was adequately suppressed at baseline."

The description on the Tesco site says that it has a USB socket - can anyone (who has this) clarify? BTW, if it does, then does that mean you can record onto a USB stick... or am I missing the point! Thanks....

I cant remeber what i changed but it was one setting on the TV its self and one on my SD Sky box and then the picture was 10x better, will have to have a look when i get home and post up what i changed for anybody thinking of getting this TV.
