Found 4th Jun 2008
Hey everyone!

I'm about to buy a new tv and have my eye on a couple. Just wondering if anyone can help me decide which one is best.

The two I am thinking of are:

LE32A457C1DX
argos.co.uk/sta…htm

LE32R87BDX
argos.co.uk/sta…htm

Please help!

Thanks

I dont know what one to go for, but i do know dont buy them from here, they are much cheaper in dixons / currys etc, or elsewhere online.

Ive got the bottom one on your list in the 37" version, and i paid £480 from dixons using a youatwork code

Would recommend that one anyways

Thanks, I really don't have a clue! Just too many things to consider and I don't even know what they are :oops:!

I noticed in Argos you get a three year warranty free (worth about £120). Is that just a Samsung thing and get that in Dixons/Currys too?

Maybe you should concentrate on if it will be big enough. 32inch is pretty small. What have you currently got (old 32inch CRT? widescreen?)

Yes it's for on the wall of my bedroom so it should be okay, just not sure which is the best - both look practically the same to me.

I'm looking for a really good picture but not sure which one's best.

Then why not just go for a cheaper one. You can pick up a decent 32" TV for £300 these days.

for example, this has good reviews.

Apparently it has a samsung tv panel and a philips tuner.

Well I wanted to get it on my Argos card with 6 months interest free. But that one looks okay too. Do you know which one of the samsungs have the best picture, I don't know how to tell.

the reason argos offer 6 months free on their tvs is because they are massively overpriced.

I'm no expert on samsungs but 218 reviews and 4.5 stars must tell you something about the Vistron. And £210-£260 saved.

I agree it is a far better deal. Just wondering what contrast ratio means? The Viston is only 1500:1 whereas the samsung is 8000:1.

Yep - far better asking for help there than here :thumbsup:

Thanks everyone :-D

I'd go for the LE32R87BDX. Average professional review for that TV is 4.5*

Argos might not be the cheapest around but if you have any problems with it, Argos will be the best to get it repaired / replaced easily.

HTH

Anyone using Ebuyer and using their review system to make a decision please bear in mind, on certain products they actively withold bad reviews.

I've made several bad reviews in the past and they all were cancelled - I then made a test positive review and it was allowed.

Just something to keep in mind I was pretty shocked to find out as I really did kinda trust the reviews as an excellent indication of if a product was worth my £££.
