Hi could you please specify which model you purchased I'm very intrested in the M series.

]LE40M86BD

That is the link to the TV i got today! sorry about that! Supposedly delivery is set for 30/12/07 not counting my chickens yet

I know someone who works at comet so I could get this for £630(10% off)

Would I rather get that or this m series one with the 10% dixons code + quidco?

Thank you

I'd go for the m series,or wait a while and go for the f series when a little cheaper.Also wall bracket is cheap if you buy together.I bought this set before xmas with 10% off

Very Nice!

The thing with LCD TVs if your going to buy one say for your living room spend that little extra and get a really good one. Not only will it be stylish and have that WOW factor its also going to be future proof.

According to some information on avforums, the n series is a cheaper version - I paid 760 quid for my LE40M86 delivered and been very pleased with the picture quality.

I have the M40 series of this tv which is slightly better than the N40. Con ratio is 15000 Below is the full spec for both so you can decide but imo i prefer the M40

This TV does not seem to get glowing reviews over at the AV Forums, seems to have had a lot of bugs in the past and not sure if these will be sorted out by now ?

Still it is a very good price for a Samsung 1080p model if you are lucky to get one with none of the issues, not for me on this occasion though. :thumbsup:

Here's a review for the Samsung LE40M87BD 40in LCD … Here's a review for the Samsung LE40M87BD 40in LCD TV:http://www.trustedreviews.com/tvs/review/2007/10/20/Samsung-LE40M87BD-40in-LCD-TV/p3



Just a note the review is for the "m" series model, the model sold by comet is the "n" series LE40N87BDX. the only real difference appears to be the casing, and the "m" has a super clear panel with a higher dynamic contrast ratio of 15000, compared to the "n" 10000. so tempted by this one over the 475 tosh. charlie

ps anyone know if this samsung supports 1080p/24?

how did you get this price?

You can get the N87 version from Empire Direct for 699 - 10% voucher = 630ish + another 3% quidco.
You can also get the M87 version from them for 749 - 10% voucher = 675ish + another 3% quidco

I ordered myself an M87 from them a couple of days ago.. hopefully all will go well

P.S. you can find the Empire Direct voucher code on here by searching them

don't forget the 25 quid for delivery with empire direct i don't live close to one of their stores, i got mine from dixons used their special xmas code 10% off with free delivery came to 692.5 then with quidco tracking another 20.7 quid off making my telly a bargain at 671.8. :santa:

Fortunately for me I have an Empire Direct just down the road from me
So my total came to 663.50 (£749 - 10% - 2% quidco)
Anyways the point to my post was that the Dixons offer was very limited time, so I was suggesting a current alternative, however I just verified that the 10% no longer works so it's no longer a valid point.

There may be a dodgy batch in the m87 version, anyone know how to identify them?

I know it was for the M series, i just wanted to show how good they were.

Nice find, voted HOT

Wish I had waited for this! Just bought a 37" Toshiba 1080p for not much less

Sorry, but no TV is future proof, not this one, not any. For starters, they still haven't sorted an issue with this regarding 24fps, which pushed me to the plasma side!

Decent TV, decent price, flawed though - MoviePlus is the devil's handiwork, it's horrid.

Sorry I meant generally.

yes it supports 1080p/24. after firmware update in PS3, can play 1080p/24 with the Samsung.

True but if you look at high end TVs their Contrast Ratios are between 18000 - 20000.

Amazing price. Sickening to think i bought a 40" R74 for slightly more back in March. So my advice to anyone buying one is to stop looking at prices the minute you click that purchase button.

The "M" has a shiny screen which means it suffers very badly from reflections. :x
The "N" has a matt screen. Much better on the eye. :thumbsup:

For Empire Direct you CAN'T pay online, use quidco and then pick it up from the store.

Depends on how you define future-proof IMO. No, 5 years down the line this TV won't look as good as a brand new one, but 5 years down the line it'll still look as good as it does now, which seems to be pretty flippin good. You say a TV can't be future proof, but in my front room I have one thats about 10 years old, and it still lets you watch TV. play games and watch DVDs on it, so I'd say that TVs actually are fairly future proof. Its not like the TV will become obsolete in a couple of years is it?

Yes, you may want to replace it in a few years, but I don't think you'll have to, so I'd say this set seems as future proof as any "technology" can be.

I guess what I'm saying is that maybe its not future-proof, but its definitely future-resistant.

Exactly - TV will be great but, for example, won't be able to receive Freeview HD except with external box.
