Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

1080p HD Ready
Samsung now offers 1080p HD Ready - the highest definition you can get. This is an LCD TV that takes you to new heights in picture quality. These HDTV images have riveting impact - showing you lifelike detail, clarity, and colour like you've never seen before.

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.

Super Clear Panel
This is our cutting edge technology that, combined with our 1080p Full HD, gives you the most realistic black reproduction you've ever seen. Blacks will never again appear grayish and you will see fantastic details even in dark scenes.

LED SmartLighting
Samsung’s unique technology, LED SmartLighting, allows multiple LED backlights to partially turn on/off depending on the image brightness on the screen, which results in: Dramatic levels of contrast ration (500,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio) Superior blacker blacks and much clearer picture images.

Three 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 and use the side-mounted input for cameras, camcorders and laptops. HDMI is the best performing interface for displaying an HD source on a HDTV.

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.

With the Wiselink USB connection, you can listen to mp3s or display photo/image files (jpeg only) in your digital camera USB memory stick or memory card. In addition, USB 2.0 supports high speeds of up to 480 Mbps which is 40 times faster than the speed of USB 1.1.

    I've owned an LE52F96 for a couple of weeks and I'm very impressed with it. I'll report its standard features first and then move on to it's non-standard feature (LED back-lighting).
    The machine looks marvellous. The black gloss finish is very nice to look at and doesn't get over reflective. Likewise the super-black panel over the screen. It adds a glossy look to the LCD panel but it's not an issue except in a very bright room. It also makes the set look like a huge black mirror (of sorts) when off and it's a nice artifact to have in a room.
    A basic configuration is easy but you might not want to stop there. The setup procedure begins on power-up, just follow the menu options. Most importantly be 100% sure to drop the system out of 'display' mode and into 'normal' or 'movie' mode. Display mode is for shops to use. It's massively over brightened and saturated and it makes any signal you input look awful. This display unit can go from unwatchable to perfect just by changing that option so be warned. It took me some considerable time to really tune the config options (using the menus) but it IS worth it. Be careful if you don't know what you're doing though. You can download recommended config settings from various forums if you want a clue. Again, it really does make a huge difference to the image quality if you spend some time on it.
    The system has 3 HDMI inputs (2 on the back and 1 on the left side of the unit) which is useful. The internal Freeview tuner works well enough but isn't the highest quality option. I'd recommend an external upscaling Freeview tuner (easy to get) or SKY HD. There IS an analogue tuner much to my surprise. How many people will use that?!
    Moving on to the HD qualities. Breathtaking!

    Being a person that loves films (good films that is) and playing video games both on PS3 & Xbox, for this reason I've had a number of large screen viewing options so far from rear-projection to start with (being the only affordable large screen option to start with years ago) to having a front-projection HD projector beaming a 110" HD picture on my living room wall, and finally to full 1080p LCD TV's. Finally I have the Samsung LE52F96 - 52" TV and this, I have to be honest, beats any other TV on the planet.

    The LE52F96, despite any minor flaws it may have and there isn't a TV in existence that does not have any negative points out of the multitude of technical features a TV has i.e. colour gamut, contrast ratio, black level, pixel response time, resolution, refresh modes, 24p blu-ray compatibility, just scan 1:1 capability, design, flexibility, etc, etc.; the Samsung LE52F96 however, for the price is truly stunning. I won't go into too much detail here because you could easily go on and on with this TV, but I will describe just a brief bit of the features. From the start when you first unpack and reveal the beauty that is the LE52F96 it simply looks stunning, it is by far the best looking most attractively designed TV that an manufacturer has ever produced and the quality looks like a TV that would cost about £5K I kid you not, it looks that good. Secondly the all important picture quality is overwhelmingly good and get ready for your first spookily impressive experience of seeing a picture fade to black and\or experiencing a picture where there is a lot of black level around i.e.

    hi, iv'e had this tv for nearly a week now and im amazed. i could bang on about all the features and wot-not but 'P. White' has reviewed it pretty much how i would any way. if you enjoy your movies and games and want to spoil yourself then this is perfect for all you HD needs. looks great on the wall (black mirror!) and is not too reflective. spend a little time to set up the configs and your flying. well worth investing in, money well spent in my eye. was a little cheaper when i bought it (£2,069) but its still great value. Prc Direct take over once you order, and they are v. helpful and quick (6 days from order, on the doorstep) and professional. would definatly recommend them. 5 stars!
