If i was going to buy a TV with a 40" screen id go for a Plasma..LCD only up to 32" is recommended.

needs latest firmware as suffers from loads of probs, and even after fix, still has bugs.
gd price shame tv has 2 many bugs

My only comment is 1080p is completely pointless on a 40" screen unless you're going to sit 5' away from it. At which point the SD pic will not look too good!

I have the 46" version of this TV, which I bought after a month of research. It is absolutely fantastic and basically the best TV your money can buy.

Firmware problems don't affect new TVs. I did email Samsung before buying and they said TVs produced after March 2007 do NOT need firmware updating. The firmware update is to add the option to disable Samsung's new dnie technoclogy as it, allegedly, causes problems sometimes. I've had dnie turned ON since I bought the TV and it's unbelievably fantastic, I didn't have one single situation where I needed to turn it off.

The Dynamic option in the this TV beats all the other TVs in the market hands down.

The only other brand that competes with the Samsung is the Sony, and in fact some people say it's better. I didn't buy the Samsung because it suffers from the 'clouding effect'. Have a look on YouTube to see what that is and if you can live with it buy the Sony, I couldn't ;-)

If I'm buying now I would also buy Samsung but I'll go for the 100hz one, which should be out by now.

If you're going to be sitting up close then fine. (no more than 5-6 feet if you want to be able to notice the 1080p) Otherwise buy a larger non-1080p screen (ie HD Ready) as your eyes won't be able to tell the difference in resolution.

I'd go as far as saying he M86 is good for the money, but no further. Each to their own, and if you're happy with your telly then that's all that counts.

I agree. LCD vs Plasma is no longer so simple. It depends on the individual screen and the types of viewing and it's resolution these days.

Saw this at our local RGB shop and the picture was amazing. It was showing an HD DVD however :-)

To be honest it did look better than the 37" version sitting next to it and was on par with the Sonys

Many people seem to like 'em, but I have one for a week before sending back due to slow channel switching, poor SD/Freeview, and buggy firmware (was Freeview jitter, now digitial out problems).

Panasonic is probably the best followed by pioneer - iv heard the Sony LCDs are too pixalated especially when viewing live programs.

Generalisation! Different size panels, budgets, technologies input sources and a whole host of other ingredients combined that determine performance and the results can be very different within a brand never mind lcd or plasmas as a whole.

Its this attitude that keeps Sony Panasonic and Pioneer prices over inflated.
