Supposed to be an awsome TV from the 2 weeks reserch i've done! and plus i took the plunge and used this deal last night with dixons! then i've bungled it with a samsung dvd player that upscales dvd's to 1080i!

I'm calling it an early christmas present ;-)

I'd recommend any one looking for a 40 inch lcd to seriously take a look at this beast.... or dont take my word for it, take a look at all the home cinema magazines in whsmiths! 5/5

good price, here is a review, sounds like a good tv for the money!

hdtvtest.co.uk/Sam…php

This is the same tv as LE40M87 & tried to get Dixons to price match but was told they can't as dif model number & slight cosmetic differences:? according to chap strict head office orders not to match but told me he would give me it for £750 as its on offer today.

nice price, i wonder when the 46" is gonna start hovering around the 900/1000 mark

Hi Everyone,

I looked at this tv the other day in costco and although it is meant to be a great tv, i did notice the one in costco was playing SD tv and it looked absolutly terririble far worse quality then my 10 year old crc tv....now is this just because they setup the tv wrong or is this what normal SD tv looks like on an lcd HDTV? Can anyone help? as i wont be getting sky hd for a while..

Many thanks,

Normal SD on Samsungs is shocking, need a 360 media center entender, or sky HD for this set.

Anybody bought one of these and know how big it is in the box? ie will it fit in my car? :-D

It's a combination of reasons.

Firstly, Costco will have left it at the default settings, which are over-bright to appeal to those easily "wowed" by bright colours etc. They will also be feeding it with an awful signal, probably split 30 ways between lots of different TVs and if it was running from the internal tuner it was probably pretty poor reception. The ambient lighting in a warehouse won't flatter the TV, either... You will get a better picture in your home once you set it up properly.

Secondly, distance is a huge factor. Chances are you were looking right up close to the TV, right? If you step back to the actual viewing distance (over 2 meters for a 40" screen) it will look better. The flaws and "jaggies" are less prominent from a distance.

But mostly, these TVs have a much greater resolution than your CRT TV, which has a similar/identical resolution to terrestrial/digital broadcasts i.e. very low. Feed something low quality to a high resolution screen and it will look awful. It's almost ironic, really; generally the lower the resolution and size of the LCD/Plasma TV, the better the SD picture.

If you want good SD pictures along with excellent HD and DVD (upscaled) images I suggest you look at Panasonic's 37" and 42" PX70 plasma screens which can be had for a similar price on the web. The 37" looks slightly better with SD TV feeds because of the reasons I mentioned above.

you can get the PANASONIC TH42PX70 42" cheaper, which is a much better TV.

I've got the Samsung LE37R87BDX (which is currently a cracking £649 including 5yr warranty from JL). johnlewis.com/Tec…spx

I'm using a standard Sky input (Sky+) & the quality from 10 ft away is much much better than I expected from SD.

Getting the settings right makes a huge difference.

The other point I would make is that bigger aint always better - there is an optimal distance to be sitting from a given sized screen - I believe i'm probably on the edge of being too close to my 37"er.

the costco price is good tho as includes 3years warrenty the price today was £789

I was going to buy this Tv from Costco but both my local ones have sold out and are not getting any more stock in - The Oldham store told me they had three in stock and when I got there 30 minutes later they had none - not even the display model! Just ordered from Dixons - hopefully it will come monday - Good tip about the discount code ! Ps poisonjam don't think the 37" is 1080p??

I've got this one and the family love it - but to be honest for me (I'm picky)the picture from the built-in Freeview AND my external Humax PVR connected via Scart are not as good as the in-laws Panasonic TH42PX60 plasma - in fact sometimes it's pants IM(non-technical)O.

There are loads of settings which it seems I can adjust to make things better but it's a minefield when you start fiddling - the in-laws Panny, by contrast, hasn't been touched since it was installed.

That said, the picture via HDMI from a Phillips 5980 1080P DVD I'm told by the rest of the family is brilliant although haven't seen it properly yet myself.

I spotted this instore at dixons the other week as i walked past and literally stopped and stared at it for about 5 minutes. I don't know what the feed was but it was movie trailers showing and i was dumbstuck by the look of it. Maybe it's just me but i was incredibly impressed by the picture. Just wish i had somewhere big enough to put one :-( voted hot :thumbsup:

Hi,

Great TV and also if you have an egg card you can get it down to £697 using that the discount code and quidco.

I just wonder if egg will at some point up the cashback to 10% for a limited time like they have done in the past on the run up to xmas.

If that happens this would just be way to tempting for me to pass up lol.

Yes, read what I said about the Panasonics. It will be a lot better with your 360 (it will blow you away), better with DVDs and almost as good with SD. A fair trade-off in my view. Also, HD DVD and BluRay players and media prices are falling quickly. Won't be long until they're the mainstream like DVD is now.

Not to mention a lot slimmer and more attractive than any old CRT and unless you have a huge CRT (which would be taking up loads of room), a 37" or 42" would be a nice size upgrade, too.

There's a lot more to image quality than just reolsution :roll: If you want to buy a screen based purely on figures and specs go right ahead...

yes, plasmas do handle certain things better, but please dont try to claim that 1024x768 is comparable to 1080p, you can't bridge that gap in resolution with "deep blacks"

especially at 40"+

that panny isnt even 720p (1366 x 768)

the samsung is 1080p (1920 x 1080)

and don't even think about using the 720 lines line as a loss of nearly 300 horizontal pixels on something designed to display them is not good.

Did I try to claim that? I think you'll find I didn't.

My point was it's foolish to base a purchase on specs alone. If you're obsessed with specs, look at the contrast ratio of the Panasonic.

I'd rather have a high quality 720p set over a lower quality 1080p set. What difference does resolution make if the overall picture quality is lesser. I decide what's a better screen by actually viewing it, you know? Not what it says on the spec sheets. Look at Bubba Shaboo's response on the previous page. He's seen both screen and prefers the Pana (I think that's what he was saying).

Also, you can't really talk about resolutions without brining viewing distances into it.

Actually, I earned my rep by helping people with technical questions (mostly relating to PCs), not arguing or telling people that only the resolution (etc) matters.

If you look at my first post in this topic I was trying to help (and put a lot of effort into my response, actually). It was others who decided to pick at my and another poster's recommendation of the Panasonic. I'm defending that.
