Seen the le40c530 40" at richer sounds and was gonna get that but this is one model up at the same price!

I think richer sound do this at £400 and theyre price match states that you have to buy with a 5 year warantee.....so for me pcrdirect it is

The Samsung LE40C550 40 inch LCD TV gives you a top spec for less than you might expect.

With full 1080p HD Ready technology, the LE40C550 is 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 2 engine. This unique Samsung system uses colour stretching technology to saturate each pixel until it achieves a natural colour and luminescence. Added to this is Samsung's Ultra Clear Panel. As the name suggests, this enhances contrast by reducing haze and reflection. Finally, a high contrast ratio also gives the LE40C550 excellent depth of image with subtle shading.

Although we'd always recommend a separate home cinema system, the Samsung's Dolby Digital Plus and SRS TruSurround HD 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 four HDMI sockets give class-leading connectivity. With one of the HDMI sockets mounted at the side you can easily connect occasionally used items, such as an HD camcorder or games console. In addition to this, the LE40C550 boasts two SCART sockets 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 "Platinum Black". This high gloss finish gives the LE40C550 an expensive appearance and is perfectly complimented by the stand. For added convenience the stand also swivels for the best viewing angle.

For a TV that's stylish, well connected and, above all, great to watch, the Samsung LE40C550 leads its class.

Might want to change the title - it's PRCDirect not PCR

Sounds good.
Most sale deals seem to have dissapeared. Was slow to get the LG 42LD450 which has gone up by £100 everywhere - How does it happen that all shops raise the price by roughly the same amount at the same time? oO)

Have some heat.

I bough the Samsung 40C580 from RS a couple of days ago. Cannot fault it and can see why everyone raves about them on AV Forums. Although I think the panel for the 530 and 550 are not quite as good and made in a different location to the 580.

i got a tv from prc direct not so long ago - that sony one - rated hot!
#8
Good dea, but anyone got any links to a decent 50" tv?
#9
Good price. Had my eye on the UE40C5800 LED model but the prices on Amazon have gone from £520 before Xmas to £595 in the sale!!

Best price I can find is BestBuy for £549 - 15% Quidco.....very tempted for this deal instead now!

I got this http://www.comet.co.uk/p/LED-TVs/buy-SAMSUNG-UE40C6540-LED-TV/628980 boxing day but it was at £599 but has gone out of stock and price gone to £899 oO budget was £400-£500 but the Sony at £399 just did not look as nice and as it has to sit on the lounge wall for the next 5 years (touch wood). But have to say god is it light.

I've ordered this one also and am waiting for delivery, can you confirm if this TV has the flat stand or crows foot type (TV is pictured with both on the Comet site)

What's your opinion of this set?

It has crows feet which to be honest think look quite nice but it is on a wall so not being used. My opinion is I like it think picture is very nice and we like the fact I can plug my portable hard drive in and access it from the tv remote makes blaying my backed up films a lot easier than running them through the laptop. Only thing is no scart so you have a adapter that I need to sort the wires out on the wall as it hangs below the tv slightly oO but could not be bothered last week.

I wouldn't say that LED is worth the £500 premium over the non-led version. If its not on a wall you can't tell the difference and the picture is better on the non-led as the LED suffers from clouding on dark images. Some people also prefer the 50hz picture over the 100hz.

I actually notice the difference with the 100hz and prefer it as for £500 more I would not buy it for £899 I got it for £599 so £200 more than the LCDs available but also it is a series 6 screen not a series 5As for clouding yes will agree if the picture is completly black there is very faint clouding but if I wanted to watch a tv with just a black screen I would turn it off anyway and when films etc are on I have never noticed it and I have been looking as I read the reviews on LED first.[/quote]

I'm in a bit of a dilemma. I purchases the Sam c530. Similar price with 5yr warranty. Should I have gone for this one instead?!
#24

I ordered the same TV, delivery on the 13th, so glad I did, I thought am I spending far too much, but as it turns out the price has shot up!

Just a note of caution...I tried to order one of these TVs from PCRDirect. Their website didn't behave its self very well but finally I entered my card details and confirmed that I wished to purchase. Nothing happened, in that I did not get confirmation that the purchase had been made or that it hadn't. I didn't get an e-mail from them. Neither was I able to get through to them by phone to clarify the position. This was all hassle and delay. After many attempts I did get through by telephone two days later and was told that I had not been charged. Personally I won't be dealing with these guys.

I'm a bit confused by this, as some sites say it's full HD with Freeview HD and others say it's HD ready with regular Freeview???
