I;m giving this a 5 star rating as it's easily the best TV I've owned.
My previous TV's have been 32 CRT affairs.
I've always been a fan of CTR as the picture is much sharper/brighter, response times faster, no fear of screen burn in ( which can occur with LCD and Plasma, nut just when gaming - but due to all the static logo's you get on every channel these days)
Plumped for LCD in the end, as a 40 inch CRT is well..not exactly practical due to the depth!
Choose this Samsung over others due to the high contrast ratio, sleek design, reasonable power consumption (166W) and more importantly the picture.
I had a good play in a high street store with the settings and my own DVD! and was very impressed. They even had a standard analogue source available and even with that it was a great picture.
Amazon of course had this product at the best price, and could guarantee when it would be delivered for just £7.95. Naturally it arrived within the window specified.
The sound isn't that bad, the bass is a little lacking which is expected with the built in slim line speakers, yet there is still surprising depth and surround effect.
Only problem I've had so far is none of the Samsung codes seem to work with the sky remote, and also another all in remote I have as well. Tried learning them, but it's not playing ball. so for the time being stuck to using two remotes.
Damn fine tv...
