Product Description

Samsung 26in LCD TV LE26R87BDX

Manufacturer's Description

HD Ready
HDTV allows you to experience television like never before with the widest range of colours and the clearest images. High Definition contains four or five times as many pixels making the image much clearer than standard definition.

Wide Colour Enhancer
This exclusive technology delivers more brilliant colours, even in bright areas of the picture where blues and greens are washed out on conventional screens. The system presents a wider colour gamut and four times as many colour gradations, showing you true colours; the fresh green of spring foliage, and the intense blue of the summer sky.

Movie Plus
Conventional LCD TVs are plagued by motion judder when showing fast moving action in movies and sporting events. The moving person or object looks shaky or blurred, like a series of still images, instead of a smooth moving picture. Samsung's exclusive Movie Plus completely eliminates this judder, presenting smooth action, no matter how fast it is going.

2 HDMI
Two High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) connections make your TV a multimedia centrepiece. Connect HD digital devices like disc players, game consoles, satellite dish boxes into the 2 rear connections. HDMI is the best performing interface for displaying an HD source on a HDTV. (23", 26" Models have 2 HDMI).

Game Mode
Samsung LCD TVs offer unparalleled picture quality that can be optimised for gaming at the touch of a button. It allows for H-sharpness and a faster response time in the games. In addition, its powerful surround sound effects produce a magical environ-ment of wonder that is filled with excitement and joy.

Fast Response Time
Exceptionally quick and sharp, with speed of up to 6ms (millisecond), users will be able to see the remarkable difference in the response time of Samsung LCD TVs. The LCD TV ensur-es that each image is just as good as the real thing.

As soon as you get this tv out of the box, you admire the quality of this product. It is a glossy black finish which is a brilliant tv to look at.
It is so fast to set up aswell, it tunes in all analogue and digital(freeview) channels automatically which is very satisfying.
The main reason why i purchased this product is foe the playstation 3, hi definition experience. And what an experience this is. Sometimes you forget that you're playing games- it looks so real!!!
It is also great for connecting other products, like DVD players or vcr's, because it has 2 hdmi and 2 scart ports.
Also the colourand contrast is amazing.
If you are looking for a tv of great caliber, then this is a must have With the slim design, and great price, I would definately recommend this tv.

For a good 3-4 months I was waiting to buy the previous model but as soon as I had the funds this upgrade came out, I had collected extensive research and concluded that I was going to get this screen, and I dont regret it one bit. When it comes to 'black levels few companies produce it as well as samsung'. The performance of the LCD is easily as good and most often better than the performance you'll get from any CRT but relative to the source (PS3 or Freeview via outdoor ariel). This particular screen is perfect for the bedroom but there are a few faults, one in particular is that as good as the sound can be, at high pitch levels there is some distortion this is simple solved by connecting speakers to it and the assumption is that if you can afford this screen you can afford speakers, I'd advise the purchase of logitech's superb Z-2300's, another problem was that PS2 games just looked horrid and this was through component cables so do not buy this if your intention is to play last generation games on it. One thing I must advise, is seeing if you can create a set up whereby you can connect your PC to the screen, the results are just outstanding, movies via DVD have never looked soo good. This being a new model of samsungs R series means that it will cost alot more initially and though the results prove its worth it the trade off in price by getting the lower model (LE-26R7 series) may be preferable to those whose requirements are little less demanding such as just needing a screen for next gen gaming. In summary this screen excels in displaying movies as it produces black and contrast levels that no other screen can at this competitive price a great investment for the future.Read more ›

After spending about a month researching into what tv i should get i went for this nice little number. I was mainly going to use this for gaming with the ps3, 360 and wii. The tv arrived before 9am the next day with express delivery so i was more than satisfied. I got it out the box and set it all up and admired its beauty. This tv looks very sexy next to my ps3.
With all my consoles hooked up and using HD i couldnt ask for more. Ok im only running my ps3 and 360 at 1080i but thats all i want seen as most of my ps3 games dont go past 720p.
Watching Blu-ray films on this is great and a new experience i am happy to be a part of.
My only argument about the tv is that i would have liked an additional component port. There is only one and my 360 and wii are using component so every time i wanna switch i have to turn the tv round and unplug the cables. To some this may not seem much of a problem but wen ur doing this a few times a day its very annoying. However with the 2 HDMI ports im considering upgrading to a 360 elite.

So all in all, the picture quality is great, amazing in fact, i have no complaints. Even Freeview looks amazing on this tv. The sound isnt perfect but find me a mid range LCD that has good speakers. This is easily sorted but plugging in some external speakers.
Ppl complaining about the time it takes to switch channels on freeview, ok it takes a few seconds but its nothing you cant deal with.
If you got the space and money the bigger sizes for this tv would be great, however i only had space for 26"

Basically buy this tv, you wont be disappointed.

Got this tv a few days ago now not had any problems with it was very easy to set up for both general tv use, the plug and play wizard found all the freeview channels, and with my pc, had to fiddle with the resolution of my display but works well with VGA to VGA cable, great for gaming.

As other people have said the sound through the built in speakers is not amazing but for watching tv it is fine and I have it hooked up to a 2.1 speaker system which is better for music and gaming

All together I think this is a great tv especially for its low price

I recently purchased this TV from Amazon and I must say it is fantastic.
It arrived within a couple of days, well packaged and completely undamaged.
The TV is great, I fully recommend it.
I currently have my PC straped up to it and the games look and sound amazing. My PS2 and Xbox are also attached and due to the amount of ports in the back and easy movement around devices I do not have to disconnect one device to use another.
The sound issue that other people complain about does not appear to be an issue.
I have had the TV on half max volume and have been shouted at to turn it down. And at this point the 'tinny' sound that other users are complaining about had not made itself present.
To make things better this tv easily attaches to a hi-fi system and creates a cheap surround sound system. Cost me only £3.99 for the correct cable.
The slow menu query is slightly apparent but I would say that it takes only a fraction of a second longer than one would expect, but this is not massively important as all movement around devices can be acitvated by buttons on the remote or on the touch button on the side of the tv, a cool feature.
Please note that this tv model is not the one with the blue mood light.
I truely recommend this TV to anyone looking for a classy looking, great performing tv, whether it be for the living room or for gaming purposes, and all for a bargain price of around £400.
I can also state that with a HDMI device attached, this tv has two ports, the output, although only 720 not 1080, looks outstanding, especially when you consider you paid only £400 for it.
Dont hesitate, buy this tv.
