riiiiighttttt. so if it was £499 and LED you would have voted it hot just for it being LED?

Someone doesn't know as much about the tech as they think they do...

Excellent deal! I got the Samsung LE46C650 46" LCD Full HD 1080p TV for £599 minus £40 quidco cashback and although it has a few specs that are better than this one not £160 worth and I definately don't need to pay that extra for the few extra channels HD Freeview offer me. I should have done more research on other models. Never mind. Love my overpriced TV anyway!

Cheers. Hot Hot Hot!

Not really a valid reason. Guess you were one of those who voted cold on that £30 PS2 deal yesterday?

2011 and they still don't do delivery,why even bother having a website?

they do deliver, but they don't on limited stocks - this is limited stocks so therefore exclusive for those who are will to collect...

There's no need for that. Just because your deals always get so hot...

very nice price!

and to be clear - there are >no< retailer sold LED TVs in existence over 22". larger flat panels are either Plasma or LCD.

and LCD has to be backlit, either with blinding white x-ray viewing style CCFL behind them, or LEDs behind them.

and the backlit LEDs can be either white, rgb, and/or always on, or locally controlled (eg turned off behind bits of the image where the LCD is 'on' to block the backlight.)

edit: But the LEDs are always massive in comparison to the LCD pixels, so there is always brightness haloing, eg where the LED is on but some of the LCDs pixels are blacked in front of it, so that black is not like the other bigger areas of black where the LEDs are off.

Good old Horace

Bought on of these in Comet for 369.99 last week. Don't know if it was nationwide of store specific (don't think comet do store specific deals). Anyway don't use port 1 of the HDMI interface, use port 2. Otherwise you won't get deep colour.

Just looking at the site, I want to get this TV but thinking do I pay the extra £150 and go 3D?

richersounds.com/pro…900

I'm looking to get a TV in the next month or so, but would like some kind of bar to compare things to, I know this is active (better than passive) but it's 1080p as well, albeit smaller, what do people think?

C530 thread here avforums.com/for…tml may be useful to purchasers.

The 46" is almost certain to have an A-MVA Panel rather than S-PVA:

S-PVA: deeper blacks & slightly slower pixel response than A-MVA
A-MVA: slightly less deep blacks & slightly faster pixel response than S-PVA

Surely all this is irrelevant if your watching the sh!te they show on TV?

If you notice a slower pixel response whilst watching a film.....the film isn't very good.

Any Idea what the 37" version of this would likely have as its panel ?

I agree, unless its 3D, LED, Smart TV and costs at least £1500 then its old technology so therefore its cold!

The LE37C530 has an A-MVA Panel. Samsung don't make 37" S-PVA panels.

Note that the majority of CCFL based 37" models from Samsung, Sony, Toshiba, etc suffer from buzzing noises (most likely due to the panel inverter or the PSU). This does not mean that every 37" TV will buzz, just a minority of the production run. Annoying if you're unlucky enough to get one.

Dunno how they compare mate, but if you do fancy the LG it's £50 cheaper on amazon.

We have a Panasonic LED TV with IPS technology and the picture is fantastic, in fact much better than our LCD Panasonic. Add to that a lot less power required means that I know where you're coming from.

horace is just a troll so don't listen to him. your LED TV may have a better picture but what size and price was it. this is a good deal for the price.

thats a good price for the TV but what people don't like about horace is that he is saying not LED so old technology.but for £399.95 you cant expect to get a 46" 1080p LED TV so therefore this is a good deal and not cold as he suggests. horace votes on the item itself and not the price in relation to the product. this is a good deal and whatever horace says is usually wrong.

hmmmmm ... you sir are a doofus

Just because a TV has an LED Backlight unit doesn't automatically mean it will have a better picture than a TV with a CCFL backlight, after all both are still LCDs. It's known that last years CCFL TVs were actually better than the LED edge lit comparable models (ie Samsung LExxC650 vs UExxC6530, Sony xxEX503 vs xxEX703) and suffer from less backlight bleed/ banding/ light distribution issues.

As for power comsumption, once calibrated there isn't a huge difference; at the most it's 10% while in some of the reviews you'll find the CCFLs actually consuming less power the their LED models. Typically edgelit TV's aren't as bright, most normal people turn the backlight down anyway which reduces the power consumption. CCFL's are energy saving bulbs and are what most people have in the home, the only issue you have is they dimmer after around 5 years use and the colour temperature may change with that.

LED backlit sets with Local Dimming are great but typically are expensive. Unless you are wall mounting a TV and will so benefit from the extra slimless, an LED edgelit Tv isn't worth the premium. Manufactures want you to by LED edgelit sets because they make more money from them.

If you're a brand snob, I hope you realise that IPS panel you seem fond of is an LG panel and not a Panasonic panel.

REALLY!?

I purchased one of these around 6 months ago from Amazon Warehouse for around £290. When it arrived the set was in good condition however the problems began once i turned it on.

The picture is terrible, tonnes of motion blur poor viewing angles and no matter how hard i tried the picture was far too soft.

Id urge people to look at a better television.
