I was already nearing the boundary of becoming a Samsung TV fanboy considering we have mostly this brand for all of our home's TVs, however this TV put me over the edge. I love it!
We have this TV currently set up in our kitchen where my Mom watches it whilst ironing. Both her and I have watched this TV and love the picture quality of the built-in freeview we get from it. she is not exactly a technology user and she doesn't really see much difference between any display but she did say she preferred this display over even the 42" TV we have in the lounge.
In my more technical minded opinion, I had the same reaction. The images wer4e sharp and the colours particularly vibrant over many other TVs I have watched. The user interface, lives up to the high Samsung standards and is very easy for anybody to use.
I have connected this TV up to my PS3 where I games in both HD and was very impressed with it - I saw no issues whatsoever.
The design of the TV is lovely too. Amongst the top I tend to see.
I bought this TV basically just to play my PS3 to start with but after seeing the quality of the picture when I was playing the games which were a better quality then the TV I was using before and that was a Samsung TV which cost much more. I started watching Freeview which is built in on this TV and it is also HD ready and this picture quality was very good and to show how good it is for a TV of its size most people that come over to watch a rugby match or something like that commented on how good the picture was on this TV.
The set-up of this TV is very easy is you are afraid of setting up electrical items like this you will not go wrong with this TV all you need to do is connect the cables to the back i.e. the aerial and if you will connect a games console of Blue-ray player connect a HDMI cable and you're on your way.
When set-up the remote control is very easy to use as well all that needs dong to start watching is use the menu section to select the setup and use the automatic channel search and it will to all the work for you in a few minutes and all the channels will be there ready to watch. Within the TV there is a TV-guide that will go 7 days in advanced and also a channel list to choose from with no programme details.
This TV is also a modern looking and fits in well to a room and also a good size if you don't want a huge size TV. I think that it is a good price for the quality as well and if you want a good quality picture on your TV and only use a TV to watch programmes at night and watch DVD's or play a games console and not wanting the technical TV with the Internet or something like that this is the TV for you.
When i took this TV out of the box i actually thought to myself what a good looking piece of equipment it actually was and couldnt wait to get it all set up. Set up was easy and fast, and a one man/woman job. The first thing that hit me was the variety of ports, having had an oldish TV before upgrading i hadnt thought about all the things my new TV could do. You can plug in a PC, HDMI or a USB stick. The USB function is good for playing back storage of family videos, which i have found plays a variety of formats. It has wall mounting capabilities, which is always a plus when buying a TV, because of how superb it can look. I find this TV has a fantastic picture quality, giving you a real sence of the picture being in the room with you. As for sound quality i think personally it is about the best I have heard on a TV of only 22", none of the funny echo noise that can sometimes be heard from a small TV. There is an easy guide on the TV which allows you to choose from a variety of options on the TV for a better viewing experience, including an equalizer to fine tune the sound, and numeous options to get the best graphics on your screen.It also has a timer built in which is handy. I did spend a lot of time doing some research before I came across this tv and i am glad in the end that i choose this specific one. I would highly recommend this TV, it gives out a good performance and it looks amazing. I have only 3 problems, which are all minor. The first problem is that there is no 'off' button, the TV will constantly be left on standby or just turn it off at the plug. I dont find this very good for preserving electrical consumption but like i said at the start, im just highlighting minor problems. The remote control is also another problem, as it is a fair size. The final thing i would say is when wall mounted you can see its dimensions are a bit of a problem as it doesnt fit as flush against the wall as i would like. On the whole i would say that this Samsung TV is superb for the price, and worth a gamble if you are comparing similar from the Likes of LG and Sony.
I have 2 Samsung TV's ... this one for the spare room (22 inch, which I am told is the current version of the 21 inch) & my main livingroom TV.
I actually bought this at the same time as I bought my pc. I fancied having a monitor that allowed me to either use it for the PC or to use as a TV. The reason behind this is simple ... my spare room is tiny, so if I could avoid the need for multiple pieces of kit taking up space then all the better.
So I upgraded the monitor to get this TV which also double as a computer monitor.
SET UP: It was so easy to set up the TV ... literally just had to connect the cables, turn it on & follow the on screen commands. It even had a feature which lets you chose between 'air' (ariel) or 'cable' or 'both'. Seeing as I usually end up picking the wrong one, the 'both' feature sounded like a plan. In a few minutes it had detected all the chanels & I was good to go.
QUALITY: The picture quality is excellent on this tv. The salesman recommended it as he was telling me all the jargon about how all the lines in the tv interract to provide HD quality pictures ad that basically you get various different lvels of quality based on which tv you pick. I was baffled, but he seemed to be telling the truth as it's got a sharp clean picture with lots of settings to let you personalise the look or sound.
EASE OF USE: No problems here either. The remote lets you either enter in the chanel through the number pad or you can use chanel up or down. Should you want to go for surround sound (which I did), the TV uses a built in programme to let you dispose of one of the remote controls and you can operat the tv and dvd player with the one remote (pretty sure this is only applicable if you go for the samsung dvd though!)
FEATURES: I decided to cancel my virgin media package & just get a freeview box to save some pennies. Imagine my surprise when the salesman at the shop told me that because my tv was quite new that it would no doubt have built in freeview. Off I trotted home, did a bit of jiggery pokery and low & behold ... it DID have built in freeview chanels. Other features include a side hdmi connection so that you can watch movies from either your laptop or android phone on the TV screen. I love this tv :)
VALUE FOR MONEY: A quality reliable product, not too steep a price and with freeview built in ... and can also double as a PC monitor ... BARGAIN!!!
What are you waiting for? Go get one ... x
The Samsung LE-22D450 will not let you down if like me you have stick to the brand for years or you just wish to buy a new LCD TV. Ideal for a small room and it does not take too much space and with a design that is compliment to the eyes, the LE-22D450 does what it says on the tin.
With built-in Freeview and compatible with your XBOX360 or PS3 you will soon find yourself enjoying your films and games in High Quality and if you have bluray player, the bluray movies will play up to 1080p with clear cut image full of colours and details. What I like more is when watching football matches, your eyes are not strained that much. You also have a port to connect with your PC and laptop and there is no time-lags or delays and the image transfers are always perfect quality if you have a fast processor.
Samsung TVs may not be the most glamourous brands outside but still if you want a low-key and simple viewings and is not interested in waking up your whole neighbourhoods, then you should absolutely go for this.
The only drawbacks you may find is that you need a powerful antennae for good freeview reception and also the image quality can sometimes be darker if you move from a different perspective.
