Not the biggest and best, but definitely worth the money and perfect as a computer screen or for smaller rooms. This LCD screen has great picture quality and is HD ready; it comes with a HDMI port for games consoles and other input devices. As with all Samsungs, the colours are deep, rich, etc... to sum up, it's got excellent picture quality. It's very easy to use and the instructions for first time set up are very easy to follow. I currently use this is my main computer screen which I whole-heartedly recommend. Watching videos online and even writing up documents, etc, is made 10 times better. The best thing about this model is the fine finish in my opinion. It looks great and it's a pleasure to use. If there's one gripe I have then it's that the shape of the remote is silly, it should be flat, not banana shaped; I can't tell you how many times the things fallen on the floor after I've set it down on a flat surface.
I've had this TV for a good few months now and i love it. Lets start with the styling...i've always loved Samsung's sleek, gloss matt surround and clean edges.
Useability wise its swivel base is great for adjusting the viewing angle. Set up was pretty easy, on screen instructions guide you through the set up process.
It has integrated freeview as you come to expect these days, again, this is dead easy to set up and use through the on screen menu.
The picture quality is fantastic, the clarity of colours is great. I've not hooked it up to an HD box yet so can't comment on the 1080p functionality but given the picture quality on a standard resolution i dont think i'll be dissapointed!
The sound quality isnt the best i've heard from an LCD TV but provided you're not frequently using it on full volume its more than good enough for normal day to day use.
Connectivity is pretty decent with a combination of AV, Scart and multiple HDMI connections.
an all round excellent product this elegant, black stylish lcd tv is perfect for anyone. It has excellent picture quality, excellent sound quality, and best of all it is very easy to use and put up, all the instruction are very simply put, so even if your not so good with electronics this item is so easy to use which lets you enjoy your new tv rather than stress out trying to work it, like we are with many modern day products...i must also add that the black gloss surrond of the tv is very easy to clean so your tv will always look like new, and you get a special cloth with the tv to clean the screen properly so for peace of mind you know that you are doing it right and that your not going to damage or scratch the screen of your new lcd tv. Hope this review helps.
i purchased this just before xmas this year, instread of me and hubby buying separate pressies for each other
so far .. im very please with it for a TV in the average family home
ive found the picture quality great, with no ghosting as of yet
the sleek black design is stylish, even though a bit of a dust magnet lol
hubby has the WII plugged into it and so far is one happy man
the only thing ive found that annoys me, is when you turn it on (a) it has a silly jingle it plays which i cant work out how to turn off, if you can (b) it takes a few seconds before the picture comes on screen
so .. considering the price, we're one happy family, especially with the added bonus of being able to plug in a memory stick to display photos
i can highly recommend this TV all round :-)
I recently purchased this television and it works a treat for the everyday Joe like myself however I am not convinced that it would be an ideal choice for hard-core gamers or movie lovers.
The TV generally functions without fault and the picture quality is amazing. The television certinately looks the part, with it;s sleek black exterior embossed with the ever rising 'Samsung' brand. However, it's pretty dire to watch a game of football on it without the ball 'dragging' much like on older versions of plasma televisions.
I would say that I was disapointed the most by the connections on the back coupled with the poor remote control supplied with the TV, but overall for somebody who is only going to use it to watch TV through Sky+ and play the odd occasional DVD, it's perfect.
I would warn you to stay clear however if you wanted it for something 'more', and would advise you to opt for a bigger size.
I have recently baught this Samsung LE-32B550 locally and am amazed at everything that samsung has done with this product, it has a very high picture quality that is smooth and has a high contrast. the HD ( 1080P )
is so detailed when i watch certain channels on sky HD it seems like i am there at that very place for real. The picture quality is exceptional for gaming, I have been using it with my PS3 playing various games, this TV is definantly worth buying if you want it to feel like you are part of the game and get the most out of your console.
The one thing that i thought was a bit disapointing was the sound quality, when i am watching a film or tv show it is usualy ok but watching sports with crouds of people in the background the speakers distort the sound and make that irritating vibrating whine, I now use external speakers with the to counter this problem but all in all the Samsung LE-32B550 is a good TV.
