Leaders of flat screen TV technology, Samsung, have created yet another TV that's set to go straight to the top of the class.

As you'd expect from Samsung, the LE32a457 looks stunning. The thin frame, gloss black finish and smooth curves create a signature Samsung look that makes rivals look crude and industrial.

Yet it's not just the sculptural good looks that set the LE32a457 apart. Boasting the latest generation LCD screen the Freeview 32" Samsung offers a superb contrast resolution of 10, 000:1. Combined with an above average brightness figure of 550cd/m2, the LE32a457 offers an unrivalled viewing experience. Blacks are deeper and colours more vivid than you'd expect from a TV of this price.

Twin rear-mounted HDMI (and one side-mounted) sockets allow for the connection of 3 High Definition sources, such as an HD-TV box and Blu-ray. In addition to this the LE32a457 boasts two SCART sockets, and component and S-Video connections. Furthermore, the PC input makes this attractive TV the perfect compliment to your home computer - especially when used in conjunction with the Samsung's special Game Mode.

Although no match for a home cinema system, the built-in SRS Tru-Surround system gives a useful boost to audio performance.

For a 32" LCD TV that matches style with a superb picture and sound performance, the Samsung LE32a457 is the new class leader and, thanks to your friends at Richer Sounds, it comes at a competition-busting price, too!

it may handle 1080p sources, but maybe it only displays it at 720p or 1080i?

my 32" hyundai a321 can handle skyhd - which i am assuming is 1080p.

maybe i am wrong, i obviously aint got a clue. i just cant see a tv which is at max 720p displaying 1080p

Just means it will accept a 1080p signal and then downscale to 720. You don't gain anything, but can be helpful that it accepts and downscales....
Although description seems to state it can't accept 1080p signal. Maybe that is trying to state it's not a 1080p set. Bit confusing without looking at official specs.

Sky actually broadcast at 1080i, so again image will be downscaled to 720 (1080i is still 1920*1080 resolution)

Most sets will accept 1080p and downscale.....(but not all, although all HD ready sets must accept 1080i signal and downscale if necessary)

found some websites / sellers that do claim it handles 1080p i can certainly select 1080p on xbox360 on my bravia 50" the option is greyed out

There's always discrepency on websites for specs. It looks like this will accept 1080p signal, and downscale.

They are actually required to only accept 720p/1080i (and downscale) but as stated some (maybe most) will accept 1080p.

is this TV as good as the sony 32V4000 ?

No, Samsungs have inferior processing. Simply take a look at any Sony along side a Sammy and you see a far more natural, detailed life like picture from the Sony.

Samsung's lack shadow detail too and take a look at static and moving text on a Samsung TV and see for yourself. Samsung make good cheap TV's but the little extra money buys you so much more if it's spent on a Sony or Panasonic etc.

I posted this for 349 with 5 year JL warranty - it is avaible online again (with free delivery!)

good luck!
