Make the Samsung LE40C530 40" Full HD LCD TV the centre of your home entertainment.
Thanks to powerful image processing from Samsung's HyperReal Engine and its 1080p resolution, the LE40C530 produces an incredible picture, rich in colour, clarity and vibrancy.
To take advantage of the Samsung LE40C530's high definition credentials is the inclusion of three HDMI ports, to hook up to Blu-ray players, games consoles and HD camcorders. There's also a USB 2.0 Connect Share Movie feature that lets you share videos, photos and even music, where sound is delivered by powerful stereo 10W down-firing speakers.
As well as an integrated Freeview digital tuner to give you access to a huge variety of TV channels and digital radio stations, the Samsung LE40C530 also provides a comprehensive selection of connectivity options. These include a 15-pin D-Sub connector, or VGA port, which allows almost universal compatibility with PC computers. You can then turn your TV into a giant computer monitor.

I'm guessing the price is with the 5% off code? Might want to state that.

Voted hot though

im not entirely sure but i would think the C series would be this years model as apposethe the B530 which is definately last years, so seems a decent price to me, there might be minimal difference on spec but this seems like a better offer, there will be more stock and they will deliver it for you
#4
ok nice one. ill read some reviews if i get chance!
#5
Don't forget quidco at 3% also :thumbsup:
#6
I assume this means that their special offer of £10 for every goal England scores in the world cup isn't working any more :-D
#7
nice find, have some heat :thumbsup:

Word of warning you can't use any of the best home brew software with this years tvs. That includes the internet browser search Samygo. They've also capped mkv files to 3gb.

I've got the B series and it is amazing. Well worth the money i paid for it. Best feature is playing mkv and divx off an external 250gb hard drive.

That's not correct... I've got this TV and it played any MKV file I've thrown at it, including a 11GB Avatar file...!!!!

Hi first time user here,
Is this TV better than the LG LD550 40" ? Dixons have the LG LD550 for £549 and you could get it for £527 if you apply a voucher code. Please tell me which one is better. Thanks.
#11
Where do you enter the codes, do you have to register?
#12
that lg is 42" so theres the obvious difference in size between the two sets, based on what i know from the older sets youll be fine with either people were picky bout the old LGs and said they haid slightly washed out blacks but no lcd is going to get that perfect in that area, the LD550 has 100Hz, from my point of view as a gamer its a complete waste as i the upscaling can be detremental to such things but if your a big sports watcher then it might well help you out, theres the 42" LG LD450 which is £480 without discount so your only really paying extra for the Hz

id be tempted by the £480 sharp set though, purely for freeview HD saves you buying a box, having one external but all that is redundant if uve got sky HD or such like, only benefit to the LD550 for me is iff your a serious HD football viewer and you might get a little less blur on the ball...

EDIT: you enter codes when checking out
#13
I understand you're point of view, though i'm confused as to how 100hz would be unsuitable for a gamer. Surely 100hz is an advantage when gaming just like when you watch football. I thought it helped reduce input lag?
IN some places i've seen the LG LD550 quoted as 120 hz.
And yes the code is inputted as checkout. You get 5% off.

What has a 100Hz refresh rate got to do with upscaling?
#15
remember tho, discount codes only work for online purchases only, not reserve and collect.
they will not be honoured instore.
we are under very strict instructions on this now

It goes into Game mode when you switch to a console, then runs at 50hz....

Re Bulldog45 what version number is it you have and when did you buy it? v 3.000 is the firmware I'm referring to which I thought the latest sets would be using.
#17
Hmmmm really tempted by this but i was determined to wait till after the world cup to see what offers are on..Must resist...must resist...

I bought it when Currys had the first sale a few weeks ago (I paid £499 :x )

I have the latest version firmware which I downloaded from the Samsung site but it also worked on the version I had before!

ah apologies wrong choice of words, i dont know the correct terminology, but i mean the frames that are made up by the set between the standard broadcasted 60-50hzs or that by a games native rate, dont know what you call the frames that are made up by the set

Ah you were referring to the extra frames. Quite correct in that this is not good for gaming since the higher refresh rates are produced by inserting extra frames that are interpolated, thus it is a cheat (for want of a better word).

indeed a ficticious frame, personally massive amounts of Hz dont do anything to make me want to buy a set

Quite, which makes one wonder how effective 600Hz TVs really are. If 100Hz TVs have a few dozen interpolated frames, how would they achieve the extra frames on 600Hz TVs? My guess would be to replicate 100s of copies of the same frame in which case the visual result is no different but the manufacturers cannot be deemed to be untruthful (deceitful, maybe). Or maybe 600Hz refers to something else as they seem to only appear on certain plasma TVs. It's commendable that you are not taken in by the nonsense. To the consumer, it is relatively large numbers which conveys an impression of a highly specified TV, even without knowledge of what the numbers represents. The manufacturers do like to misrepresent the specifications! It's a similar case with the number of megapixels on digital cameras.

The problem is that a manufacturer could produce a TV which would pass a colour chart with flying colours but not many consumers would buy (or shop assistants would sell) if the contrast ratio appears low and/or the refresh rate appears low. The number of people here put off by certain TVs not supporting 1080P resolutions is an underlining example.

haha ive just been having the exact pixel count debate in another thread, on he benefits of a 1080p 32", 600Hz is a ridiculous amount of frames its primarilly meant to be about "blur" trailing the ball isnt it? but i cant say its ever botherd me on my 15yr old CRT, id be interested to see how the budget 42" 600hz plasmas handle it

£529.00 now :(
