Been to Currys tonight looking at LCD TVs. Was very impressed with the Samsung range and especially the 40" Samsung LE40M86BD - unfortunately at £1099.99 it was way out of our range.

Came home and of course looked on the Net and found it much cheaper at most places. However, was chuffed to find Currys were doing it for only £860.17 online and Google ads was showing a code AW60TVSEPT for an additional £60 off - so £800.17 delivered for a TV we had been drooling over for £1099.99.

Billy Bargain!

Bubba.

£733.55 deilvered with Quidco must be a good deal unless this is a poor TV!!!

Which it is not.

Make no mistake, the Samsung LE40M86BD is easily among the best in its class, certainly miles better than its predecessor LE40F71BX (if only by virtue of being able to turn off DNIe in its entirety). Unless you're a videophile who demands the absolute best in shadow detail and colour accuracy, I don't think you can go wrong with this LCD TV.

Hmm, tough choice - I measured up the area where I want the TV to go (currently there's a 32 inch there) but decided a 40 inch was just too big. So I ordered the slightly smaller 37 inch one for 747 pounds delivered from Dabs however they're still not showing any stock. I'm very tempted to cancel and go for this one, I did find the codes here already but the cost was 850 after applying both vouchers.

great deal (plus chucked on a wine cooler as well) Now I just have to figure out how to swap my current 32 inch Samsung for the 40 without the wife noticing ;)
#8
jus ordered me one!!... reviews have gotten me hyped up!!!
used both vouchers.. briniging price to £760.16

Cheers Bubba!

Cracking TV, my bro has it, he rented it (big mistake, rip off prices in most places) and is paying £1.7k over 4 years, which is a appauling price but its a hella nice tv and i highly reccomend it from my limited experience, i will be getting my own HDTV soon but it will be the 720p R78 because im a poor guy on a student budget :(
#10
This is a cracking tv and highly recommended. However, there are a number of issues. Slow response on channel changes and menus. No quick switch between inputs on the remote, you have to cycle through them all, its quicker to go through the menu. Xbox360 1080p over vga is fickle. Some of these tvs work and some don't, I was one of the lucky ones. Needs proper calibration as the review states its set up to make the blacks blacker than black. There is banding on SCART input, this is a problem with all versions of the TV, replacemetn PCBs have not resolved the issue. Having said that, its an exceptionally good picture. I have PS3 over HDMI, Xbox360 over VGA @ 1080p, Dell Laptop via DVI->HDMI input, HDMI2 input has analogue audio connectors for this purpose!, Xbox via SCART.

One issue I have found is that the TV doesn't like PAL60 via SCART one, it does an autocalibration which messes up the picture. Its fine via SCART two however that isn't RGB.

There is a small thread for this TV at AVForums

Nice spot! Didn't realise you could use more than one voucher. If anyone can confirm this I'll add it to my OP.

I keep wanting to dip my toe into this particular pond but the speed at which this technology is moving is frightening :-(

For example, this tv already seems to have been superseded by

http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/Samsung-LE40F86BD/

which means you're paying £800 for a discontinued line?

I'm not knocking the deal or the tv, they both seem cracking but why can't technology stand still for five minutes :x
#13
I got the LE40M86BD from Pixmania several months ago for around £900. It's a great TV. You should get it at that price :thumbsup:
#14
i paid £900 using codes a few months ago, its a great piece of kit, and if you have a 360 elite and sky hd and and ps3 like i have its a bonus also that it has 3 HDMI plugs.

looks great in piano black and even better wall mounted:thumbsup:

Personally id go for a Plasma for a screen that size - id only go LCD for a screen size up to 32".

Hi,

Don't want to be a wet blanket here but having looked at this model very seriously a couple of months ago I was ultimately put off by all the defects discussed in depth over at [url]www.avforums.com[/url].

Here's the thread:

http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=511377

It currently has 8,891 posts and 673,940 views :)

As someone who makes their living in software testing I understand the inevitability of bugs, but this model seems to have been particularly troublesome and Samsuing UK has been shown to offer highly erratic levels of customer service.

I've made a note to review the feedback on the subsequent model.

i'd wait for the new samsung or toshiba that have 100hz instead, reduces motion blur!

Guarantee with Currys is one year plus optional extra.

However given the choice between Samsung and Sony and the difference in price i would definetly say Samsung as the Sony's use the samsung panel.....however at that screen size lcd is excellent for gaming but not that good for tv viewing IMO i have a 42 plasma (panasonic) for the excellent tv pictures and good gaming screen
#20
Ok.. Bought the telly...

Any suggestions on where i could buy a glass stand/table for it for around £50?


thanks in advance

Wow, nice deal! I had ordered one of these screens a while back but the credit company the retailer used (Able2Buy) apparantly went into administration before issuing the funds to the retailer...

So I realised the new model was out (LE40F86BD) which is the one with 100hz, 25000:1 contrast and 6ms response for £1109 which is probably an excessive amount to pay for the extras... but I'm weak and I like getting the best I can get.

Great set now the fireware bugs have been sorted out.

For more information check out the thread over on avforums, where this set has most possible been the most discussed ever (593 pages). I have posted on thier many times.

http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=511377

I originally had 3 repacements of this set from Dixons/Currys with fireware issues and even the black contrast turning blue, but this last set is spot on. These SHOULD be the some of the last manufactured so SHOULD have all the bugs fixed with the latest fireware.

I have mine linked up to Sky HD, Xbox 360 at 1080p and upscaling DVD/HDD recorder and quality on high def signals is fantastic.

I paid £890 in July so for this price its excellent.

Go get them

The 42px60 last years with the curved stand.......

excellent picture quality with sky hd feed, component dvd feed and ps3 hdmi feed so no complaints

A very tasty looking screen indeed. Still, while it is a good deal, still a fair amount. Also a lack of HD content unfortunately. If my current TV died, I could probably convince myself though :thumbsup:

And of course if you do dip your toe in at the moment the amount of content actually availably in HD is very low, and what there is you end up paying a large premium for. Unless you are a gamer with a HD console like a 360 then I'd wait a few years yet until there's more HD TV channels and HD DVD and Blueray movies are cheaper.

:shock:

Very low??

OK granted, it isn't exactly cheap. But I've got Sky HD and 2 HD movie channels (and the joke of Anytime, but there is still a fair amount of HD movies and other stuff on there!) 2 HD sports channels. Sky One HD History channel HD, Discovery HD and National Geographic HD. BBC HD is free and becomes a genuine channel (not a trial channel) very soon and also ITV HD ad Ch4 HD on their way before the end of the year. Five soon to be making an announcement too. Also Eurosport HD and MTV HD in the near future too.

I've had sjky for years and I the £150 I paid for the box, I thought it was a bargain. The £10 for the HD content isn't a bad deal when you consider how many films and football matches you can see in HD. :thumbsup:

Has the deal now gone?? I can only find SAMSUNG LE40R88BD , the link only goes to the home page.
Does anyone know if this model is as good/better also web price is only £748 before codes/quidco.

Found it I had reserve and collect in my filter so was not showing up, delivery only. Link goes to home page though. So which is the better set the 86 or the 88?

Depends on what you're into. For me HD is a big thing, and even if people can't get SkyHD they can still experience a lot from HD-DVD players which are quite cheap now. If they can't be bothered to shell out on anything they can always hook up their pc to the tv as there is a fair amount of content online. The difference in quality really is wow.
