Right, if you do purchase this TV. Let us know if you feel heavy input lag. Though HDTVTest states 16ms slower than CRT, it's not necessarily the same for the 40" model. Gamers with high sensitivity would recommend a Panasonic NeoPDP TV but lately new LED screens have been achieving low latencies as well as keeping power consumption to a minimum.
This is a good purchase if the input lag is low.
At the moment, the best purchase is still the Panasonic P42S30 from Amazon (£400).
Damn. Paid £500 for this 5 months ago. Good TV.
Nice price for a basic 40inch LED Samsung.

I personally would go for one with freesat HD + Freeview HD with DLNA for networking, but these features will add £££

I have this TV and it has uPnP (DNLA) so long as you plug it into your network via Ethernet. Happily streams from my PC using PS3 Media Server or WMP, and even from the wifes Galaxy S2. I have Sky HD anyway, so Freeview HD is of little interest personally

The only real criticism I have on this is the 100Hz mode is rubbish. No noticeable effect other than it darkens the screen.
What is this TV's gaming performance like? Im in the market for a 40-42" TV and at the moment THIS is top of my shopping list for an extra £10 (most probably be told its a no-brainer to buy the panasonic for an extra £10 :D)

Its probably been asked before but what are the electric savings like with an LED screen against an lcd or plasma screen?
Bought this tv last summer for £450 and love it. Boyfriends sis also really liked it so she picked one up for £ 420 last month. This price is really good and I might buy one for my parents aswell!!!
Also does anybody know about john lewis price matching to get the 5 year warranty for free?

Probably comparable with the D5520...

"We measured the Samsung UE-40D5520′s input lag in [Game Mode] and over VGA (or HDMI renamed to “PC”) to be 32ms. Whilst not the lowest we’ve recorded, this is a perfectly acceptable figure: all but the most lag-sensitive of hardcore gamers should not find it wanting."

With a £400 budget, I would choose the TXP42S30.

JL don't list the D5000 on their website.

Average UK viewing is 4 hours a day. The annual energy savings are too small to be worth calculating, or to be a decisive factor in choosing a TV.
Which! review:

The 40-inch Samsung UE40D5000 LED TV is one of the brand's lower end models. It doesn't have many features, but could it fit the bill if you're looking for a basic 40-inch television? Find out when we publish our full test results in January.

Although Samsung describes the UE40D5000 as 'feature packed', there isn't much here for tech fans. There's no 3D, internet features or Freeview HD tuner. However, this is reflected in the price - the TV costs less than £500.

We tested the 32-inch version of the D5000 earlier in the year and were very impressed with its picture quality. We can't guarantee that the same will apply to the 40-inch version, but we would be surprised if there was a huge difference.

There are four HDMI inputs for high-definition sources such as Blu Ray players, as well as one Scart input for standard-definition sources such as DVD. There are also two USB inputs for playing digital media on the TV.

Pros: Well priced for a 40-inch LED

Cons: Not a great choice for those who want the latest features

Okay thanks. There goes my excuse for replacing my LCD

Agreed! Voted cold for me considering the extra features in the 6000 series and up are worth the extra £'s, especially DLNA streaming from a NAS and the fact it supports MKV files.

it certainly a few more quid but I picked up the UE4E6510 and its blown me away the quality and features.

Thanks dooper
I bought this TV a while back and it is a fantastic buy....

As all LED Tv's it takes a few seconds to boot up and the picture quality is perfect for me and i use it at 720p due to gaming on the xbox...
I have an external hard drive attached and it does read MKV files..The only snag is while watching anything from my hard drive it will lose sound for 2 seconds half way through like it's catching up..Also pausing for anything over five minutes causes the sound to be delayed..
Not many features but pointless if you don't use them..
Love my 6100, if your just looking for a decent basic TV and/or gaming display, BUY IT!

I think plasma uses the most electric.

Damn. Paid £500 for this 5 months ago. Good TV.



lol you expected it to still be £500 5 months later?

I remember when my parents bought me a 133MHZ PC for £1,500 about 13 years ago, if only they would have waited too.. Can get it almost free now (_;)

Think JL only price match "equivalent" offers ... so they will only price match against TV + 5 year warranty.
thanks
Why does nearly every tv being advertised say "HD ready" when it's clearly 1080p? Have I missed something?
Does this TV have the ability to play DiVX and MKV files through DLNA or USB attached Hard drives? It would be handy if it did like the Samsung LE40C650.

How do you mean? HD Ready doesn't mean anything too specific. The term usually refers to any display that is capable of accepting and displaying a high-definition signal at either 720p, 1080i or 1080p using a component video or digital input, but does not have a built-in HD-capable tuner.

But it's a given that a 1080p screen can display 720p isn't it? Does the tuner display in HD?
42 inch LED for 399 at Richer sounds or 430 with 5yr warranty
Now expired by the look of it and up to £429. Typical I held off buying to go and look at one in the local comet first - come home to order and missed it!
