Sue, Streatham, London Film and documentary lover

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Picture's good.
Bad points:
The "Guide" is frustrating beyond belief. It has built in freeview which is great, but it obviously means there are multiple channels to navigate through. You just can't do it. If you use the Guide button, you can see what's on now and next, but you can't jump to the next "page" (as you used to be able to with the earlier version), you can only move up and down one channel at a time which is slow and laborious. By the time you've got to the end of the list, the programme you were trying to find would be finished. Why would they do they do this? It was fine in an earlier product. You can use the "channel list" button which will let you jump but it only tells you what's on at the time. Frustrating. Frustrating. Frustrating.

TV Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Featuring full 1080p HD Ready technology, the LE40b530 is more than ready for the new generation of High Definition sources such as Blu-ray. The full 1920 × 1080 resolution lets you see more detail than ever before and creates a vivid sense of realism. Also standard is Samsung’s Wide Colour Enhancer 2 engine. This unique Samsung system offers far more natural and convincing colours by strengthening the red, green and blues. A high contrast ratio also gives the LE40b530 excellent depth of image with subtle shading.

Twin rear-mounted HDMI (and one side-mounted) sockets allow for the connection of 3 High Definition sources, such as an HD-TV box, HD camcorder and Blu-ray. In addition to this, the LE40b530 boasts SCART and component connections for your older sources. Furthermore, the PC input makes this attractive TV the perfect complement to your home computer – especially when used in conjunction with the Samsung’s special Game Mode. Topping off the wide range of sockets are both analogue phono and digital optical sound outputs – ideal for connecting this Samsung 40 inch 1080p LCD TV to your hi-fi or home cinema for a useful upgrade in sound quality.

Completing this stunning 1080p Samsung is a stylish case finished in the same Crystal Rose high gloss look as their other, more expensive models. For added convenience the stand also swivels for the best viewing angle.
