Good price if you can get it in your local store...

If you want 5-year warranty, then price will be £384.94 which is also a good deal!

I prefer this deal from Amazon, even though it is £6 quid more, you are guaranteed to get it! If peeps agree, will post this as a seperate deal!

The Samsung LE40C530 has all the features and the performance you'd expect from this world-class LCD TV brand.

With full 1080p HD Ready technology, the LE40C530 is more than ready for the new generation of High Definition sources such as Blu-ray. The full 1920 x 1080 resolution lets you see more detail than ever before and creates a vivid sense of realism. Also standard is Samsung's Wide Colour Enhancer engine. This unique Samsung system is driven by Samsung's HyperReal picture Engine and offers far more natural and convincing colours by strengthening the red, green and blues. A high contrast ratio also gives the LE40C530 excellent depth of image with subtle shading.

Although we'd always recommend a separate home cinema system, the Samsung's Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Pulse compatibility systems give a useful boost to audio performance. With indirect firing technology the, hidden, speakers create a spacious sound that's less boxy sounding than some.

A total of three HDMI sockets allow for the connection of all the HD sources you could need, such as an HD-TV box, HD camcorder and Blu-ray. New to this year's 530 model is Connect Share Movie via USB. The USB socket allows you to plug in media devices and watch video or photos from your camera, phone or other USB compatible device. In addition to this, the LE40C530 boasts SCART and component connections for your older sources. Furthermore, the PC input makes this attractive TV the perfect complement to your home computer - especially when used in conjunction with the Samsung's special Game Mode. Topping off the wide range of sockets is a digital optical sound output - ideal for connecting this Samsung 40 inch 1080p LCD TV to your home cinema for a useful upgrade in sound quality.

Completing this stunning 1080p Samsung is a stylish case finished in the same Crystal Rose high gloss look as their other, more expensive models. For added convenience the stand also swivels for the best viewing angle.

If it's a straight forward 40 inch TV, with all the basics covered, you're after, then the Samsung LE40C530 makes a great choice.

Tried to get this about a month ago for my friend. All shops in South didnt have any in stock so went for the M&S one instead.

Ring first to see if your local store even has them ;-)

An excellent TV. Also available for £357 delivered from Amazon, It has a Which? 'Best Buy' award.

For £400 delivered from Amazon, also consider the Samsung LE40C580. Full HD, & HD Freeview. Not tested by Which?, but here's a review http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/samsung-le40c580-le32c580-20100728791.htm . At the end of the Review, see Update 3, which includes the remark... 'C580 is greatly superior to the C530 in every regard' (better panel & processor). Also much classier style & build quality than the C530. Well worth the extra cash, if your budget allows it.

Good price but worth paying £50 extra for the c580 if you can.

Still a hot price but IMO i would always have it in my mind that i could of got something a little better for £50 including freeview HD.

Bargain

Not for sure, but this review may help http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/samsung-le40c750-le46c750-20100709761.htm

The LE4C750 is nearly £700 from Amazon. For better picture quality than the C580, I would suggest the Panasonic Viera TXP42G20. Used to be £700, but the remaining stock can be found for approx £550, until the replacement G30 model succeeds it. Review here http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/panasonic-txp42g20-txp42g20b-20100308169.htm . It's also a Which? 'Best Buy'.

cheers. but why are panasonics so ugly! the C750 can be had for £600 or there abouts (dixons have it for £617) which is a very good price and only c.£50 more than the G20. I've heard good things about the G20, but both this and the C750 are 40-50% the cost of the C580. i guess that's the standard dilemma when you want more item for less money :) the C580 seems ideal middle ground, though i suspect the C750 will continue to drop in price, assuming we don't see price rises on the back of the crisis in Japan

.

TV components tend to be manufactured in China, & the sets assembled in Europe, e.g. C580 is 'made' in Slovakia. Last Christmas until now has been incredibly price-competitive for TVs, so now is a great time to buy a TV. I think the G20 is good-looking, but I'd sooner have Penelope Cruz... :p

I all ready posted this got mine for 339.00 join the vip club and print off your voucher. They tried to blag me saying I could not use the voucher. On there web site says in store customers only. However only took a couple of mins and they caved in.

Why is it all tv stores are con-men

bought one 2 weeks ago, great telly for the price.
#13
Purchased from Amazon a few days ago after returning my C580 due to not having 24p support (I hate the 3:2 pulldown judder).

The C580 is superior in all other aspects. As with most TVs nowadays, pick your poison.

how did you find the picture quality of the C580? did it look almost 3D/popping out of the screen? (if you've never seen a C750 you wont know what i'm talking about)

A couple of friends that saw the C580 did mention that it looked like the image was almost 3D. This is probably due to the very deep black levels and high contrast. The image definitely seems to pop out though, yes. HD content looks excellent on both the C530 and the C580 and tbh I cant really tell the difference between the two, but for SD the C580 wins.

groovy, looks like i may have found my tv :)

Might be worth saving up for a model that actually has a HD tuner built in.
