My wife and I picked up this TV a while ago as an entry-level into Widescreen TV's. We had quite a small budget and were willing to settle for just about any HD TV we could. Armed with a budget of £250 we headed to our retail park to hunt down whatever bargains we could, and were met with nothing but disappointment...
That is until we laid our eyes upon this piece to kit! What immediately caught my eye (aside from the affordable price tag) was just how clear the picture was. High contrast, vibrant colours and very easy on the eye up close and from afar. I was very shocked to realise that it was only 720p (as opposed to the 'true' 1020p HD) and yet had a far better picture quality than the higher priced, and higher pixel-count models.
Needless to say we snapped it up, and after one perilous trip home we had it quickly unboxed and were gleefully watching our favourite shows without having to squint at the TV. It was like candy for our eyes! Getting it set up took no time at all, and most of the features were intuitive enough. The remote is a little unresponsive, but it's hardly a dealbreaker, and with a little patience you hardly notice the issue.
There is a range of ports, including SCART, Antennae, 3x HDMI, 1 USB, RGB components, PC In and also audio jacks for headphones or to allow your PC to play sound on it. As an aside, it makes a fantastic monitor for a PC - due to space issues we've recently hooked one of ours up to it and it is fantastic in that function!
I have always considered Samsung to be synonymous with quality and this TV has not disappointed me once since purchase. If you're looking for an affordable entry into widescreen TV's you will not be disappointed with this model. I cannot recommend it enough.
I got this TV around Christmas in the sales from Argos. I thought it was a good buy and looked good. You can pick it up for around £299.99 from Argos which is not a bad price for a decent 32" HD ready TV.
The TV itself is a nice black 32" wide screen TV with 80cm of visible screen and has wide colour enhancers to make sure images come out to as real life as possible. It has built in free view so for anyone who does not have digital, this could be the solution to the switch over which is currently happening. The TV looks really nice, a nice shiny black colour with a stylish stand and nice and thin. It not that heavy for the average person around 9.6kg.
The picture quality is really crisp and the resolution is good quality to 1366 x 768 pixel. The TV is HD ready so you can watch even better quality programs in high definition. It has a Dolby sound system which produces 2 x 10 watt output which is pretty good but I always think that connecting it to a surround sound system is the best method.
The TV 3 HDMI sockets, 1 scart socket, Pc input, headphones, AV, UsB. It pretty much has all the connections you would need for a TV, you can connect your TV, Xbox, laptop and more.
The TV has interactive features which are pretty useful, depending on what you use it for. It has DAB radio, DVB subtitles and a great auto setup feature. The setup is really easy to follow and explains things really well. You can also get TV top up for the free view and it has auto channel search.
The remote is a good design and simple and very easy to use. It also comes with batteries which is always good. The TV itself I believe has been a great buy, it looks great, produces perfect quality images, TV and sound. It suitable for wall mounting too so if you don't want it on the stand it would look great on the wall.

I rarely watch a lot of live television programs as I hate advertisements, so why did I buy this piece of equipment I hear you ask? Two main reasons, the first of which was to use it as a computer monitor. I do a lot of heavy graphic work and I thought that having 32 inches of full colour and high contrast would make my life easier.
It does, this TV works magnificently as a monitor, working with Photoshop has never been so clear and crisp. The second main function for it was as a TV for consoles. I have a Wii, Xbox360 and PS3 all hooked up to this bad boy and BlackOps has never looked better. With an HDMI cable the graphics look amazing in high definition, I could never go back to the 26" CRT that I had before.
With the Playstation 3 I have access to a Blu-Ray player and have received a few of these as gifts. The TV shows them in outstanding quality and the thought of VHS and even DVDs have begun to fade from my mind. High definition really brings the characters to life on screen.
The sound from the TV is the only let down as I feel it can be a bit hollow at times, I have however fixed this with a surround sound kit that has the ability to shake the entire room.
The remote control can be programmed to work with other Samsung products, which is a nifty idea. Everything is self explanatory and idiot proof and the TV is ready after a few minutes set up out of the box.
I brought this LCD TV around 6- 8 months ago for the bargain price of £350 from my local supermarket. I needed a new TV as mine was old and looked a little to bulky compared the newer more modern versions. I brought the TV in black and placed in on my TV stand it looked slick and modern.
I have digital TV and it was great size for watching movies as it wasn't huge and not to small you had to stretch yourself to see it.
The quality of the picture was great, it was very clear and crisp image.
The functions on the TV were easy to use including setting it up from the begin and as a female who has had the same TV since i was 16 this was a great bonus.
Compared to other TV's on the market for the same spec i would definately recommend this as i think it is a great product overall.
Looks great, clear picture, easy to use with the bonus of a great price attached to it.
I have recently just brought this LCD flat screen television (Jan 11) and it is wonderful. I paid just under £300 which was slightly more expensive (should have done my research before!) that what you can find it for elsewhere however it was worth every penny and I would pay the same again! Due to the design of the television it looks sleek and modern but not too modern that it will not fit in to a cozy home. My lounge is approximately 4x3m and 32" seems to be the perfect size (this was my first purchase of a TV for this room so I was unsure on the correct size for the room). It is neither too small nor too big.
The initial set up was incredibly simple and the menu layouts were very user friendly. I am no technology wiz and it took me less than 5 minutes to set up and start watching television. I was more than satisfied with the screen resolution and the sharpness of the picture. The television has 3 picture modes - Dynamic which in my opinion provides the sharpest contrast, Movie- this dulls the picture to give it an old school movie look and Standard which is somewhere in between and this is the one that I prefer to use day to day.
Sound wise the TV is very clear and crisp and you can change your sound mode to suit what you are watching. This TV has 5 different sound modes. Clear voice mode is better for watching programmes that are predominately voice e.g. the news , however for me there was little difference between the other four modes Standard, Movie, Amplify and Music .
The television comes with a stand but not a wall mount. In addition to this there was no scart lead so you will need to buy this separately. The TV remote comes with 2 AAA batteries so you can get started straight away.
All in all I am extremely happy with my television. I have had no problems with it so far. With regards to value for money it is excellent especially if you compare it to other 32" televisions on the market. Happy TV hunting!
I've been searching for a new TV for ages, it needed to be 32inch or bigger, flat screen, HD ready as I'm moving out on my own and need a big screen for the living room. I've struggled to find anything in my price bracket but have now stumbled across this beauty. It was £267 from Dixons with free delivery and is beautiful to look at. It is sleek, shiny and looks much more expensive then it is.
Now for the technical stuff! It includes Samsung's 'Wide Colour enhancer', Surround sound, it's HD ready with three HDMI sockets and one scart. There are additional sockets on the side for your audio/video cables if needed and a USB port which is handy if you have anything on a USB stick that you want to watch or view. Freeview is also included, which is handy if you don't want to pay for all of the digital channels. Unfortunately I don't have Freeview in my area at the moment but will be good for when I do.
For the first few days, I did find the picture was very pixelated and a bit 'fluffy', I was worried at first that it would remain this way, but the TV has actually settled and now produces a beautiful quality picture. I have used a HDMI cable to connect my upscaling DVD player and am so impressed with the difference between this and a non-HD Tv. Next step for me is getting the HD channels. The resolution for this TV is 1366 x 768.
The TV is light-weight and can be attached to the wall but does actually come with a stand also. This needs to be attached with four screws, which are included but the relevant screwdriver is not. I purchased a crosshead from Focus for about £3.00, job done. It is also worth noting that no HDMI cables or Scart cables are included, so you will need to buy these separately, but these can be bought for a couple of quid on Amazon or the like.
Set up is very easy as this is 'plug n play'. You run through some quick set up options and the TV cleverly searches for your stored channels and updates them, connections to Sky and any games consoles are made instantly with no tuning needed.
There are different picture modes that can be selected, Dynamic, Standard or Movie. I cannot see a huge difference between the three but 'Dynamic' seems to make the picture slightly clearer and brighter then standard and 'Movie' seems to make the picture more dull. I have chosen and stuck with 'Dynamic' for all usage. Backlight, contrast, brightness, sharpness and colour can all be altered here also.
The sound settings also have different modes including Standard, Music, Movie, Clear voice and amplify, each is slightly different for each need. The equalizer and dialog clarity can be adjusted here and Virtual Surround sound turned on and off.
Last but not least, there is a 'Media Play' option on settings and this is where MP3, pictures etc, anything from the USB port can be accessed.
I feel like I have actually ripped Dixons off by not paying more for this beautiful TV, the stunning looks and multitude of options are more fitting for a very expensive HDtv.
On moving into my new flat just before Christmas 2009, I was extremely lucky to receive a Samsung LCD TV as a house-warming gift. Having moved from my parents' home, I had brought my 19" Samsung TV with me from my bedroom, and despite it being a great TV in full-working order, it looked a little lost in the lounge on a large cabinet, so I decided it would be relegated to the bedroom.
I've always been impressed by Samsung products; I've usually found them to be sleek, smart and solidly made, and the LE-32C450 is no exception. It fits very smartly in my lounge, and despite being quite large, it is slim and unobtrusive - quite impressive to look at even when its turned off! My only complaint on this front (and it is a very small one) would be with the remote control. It is quite short and stubby, and just doesn't seem to fit the expected sleek and modern Samsung design aesthetic. If it wasn't for the logo, I would assume it was from quite a cheap and simple TV. Having said that, it is again very simple to use and this is only a very minor issue.
It took me around 15-20 minutes to set the TV up, scan for freeview channels, and get it attached to all our other "home entertainment paraphernalia", which was pleasantly surprising. Be warned - it will probably take 2 people to safely attach the TV itself to the stand - although it is not too heavy, a certain amount of precision and balance is required, and I certainly did not want to take the risk of damaging it!
The TV offers a wide range of ports on the back, including 2 HDMI slots for a top quality HD picture, which now accomodate my DVD Player and Xbox 360, as well as a PC slot, which means I also use it regularly as a PC monitor. The plug-and-play compatibility with my Samsung laptop means this is a very simple process, and the novelty of surfing the web on a 32" screen has still not worn off!
One issue I have found with other LCD TVs when using multiple input devices, is that if you are fussy (like me) you often have to tweak the basic settings, such as brightness, contrast, gamma, etc. when changing between movies, games, and so on in order to get the best visual results. On the Samsung LE-32C450 this is relatively straightforward - the menus are clearly laid out and there are many pre-defined settings which optimise the TV for different input formats. I've found this saved a great deal of time and annoyance.
I've always found the picture quality to be fantastic - from regular TV channels, to HDTV, DVDs, Games, and my laptop - this is an all round top performer.
Overall this is a very good LCD TV for a family home, with all the necessary ports to connect a DVD PLayer, Games Console, Set-Top Box, and more. It's relatively simple to use, and looks great. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone!
About a year ago my 12-year-old fat television finally broke down. It started with some smoke and then a fizzling noise and I knew it was time to finally come into the 21st Century and get a up to date model so I did a little research and ended up at Curry's. I liked the concept of a flat screen model but I didn't want a television that would dominate my lounge.
After a lot of thought I finally bought this 32" Samsung model, as it was reasonably priced at £350 it looked attractive with its sleek black design. I could have taken out an optional extended warranty but decided against it as under the Sale of Goods Act I would have a year guarantee anyway.
For me the only slightly annoying thing was I had to buy a stand to put it on. As the television did not come with it and I needed to pay an additional £50 for that. Still when I put it together it did look good and I was pleased that it was able to store all DVD player, Sky Box and Video recorder.
Once I got my purchases home, I unpacked the boxes and prepared myself for the nightmare of putting the wires in the correct holes. But I was very pleasantly surprised as by following the simple instructions all the leads and cables fitted together and everything seemed to have a home. Although I put my flat screen on my new cabinet there was also the option and fittings so that you could put the screen on the wall.
The installation of the Television could not be easier as I remember on previous occasions sitting in front of them trying to find the relevant channels and tuning them in, it could take hours!! However I was pleasantly surprised that the first job was putting the batteries in the remote control. Then once I turned the television on I just needed to press and follow the quick and easy instructions and the remote did all the work for me. It was all done in a matter of minutes I just left the machine to get on with it while I cleared up all my empty boxes and made myself a cup of tea. A few minutes later it was all complete and I was so impressed all the channels where on the correct numbers and everything was in place for me to enjoy my new acquisition.
==My thoughts on the television:==
After a year of using the television I have to say I am very happy with it. The picture is very good and I have never had any reason to change or amend any of the settings. The only slightly annoying feature is I still find despite a larger screen than before is when there is writing at the sides of the screen it is not always completely visible which is frustrating especially when I turn in football and I can't see the complete score immediately, I have to wait for the commentator to bring it up again.
To operate the television you need to press the button on the side of the unit. Then you get a rather annoying little tune and you can use the remote to flick between channels, access over services such as teletext and change the volume. It is all very easy to operate via the hand held controller. But should you wish you can change the volume or channels on the unit itself should you lose you remote or the batteries run out (which in a year has not happened to me yet).
I really like the fact you can save space with your flat screen especially if you are installing it directly to the wall. For me it just looks better than that ugly back you have with the old versions of televisions. Previously I had heard that some brands of flat screen television have reliability issues but I am very pleased to say I have had no problems the only thing that very occasionally happens is the television will without warning lose the channel you were watching, but all you have to do is put the channel in again and you are back again.
Other features you can use are setting up your TV with your PC. I must admit I have never thought of doing this but the instructions advise this is possible. I use the teletext service a lot to find out all manor of things and through the controller it is easy to move between screen with a good quality of print, the only moan I have and I don't think it's the televisions fault at all is I would like to have all the screen for text rather than half of it with the rest being the picture from the channel you are on.
The flat screen is quite portable and you can change the angle the screen faces, although I have found I cannot turn it quite as far as I would like. So when you install the screen onto the stand you need to make sure you put it roughly at the angle you want it as when you install you stick it to the base to prevent you ever knocking the screen of the base.
What I really like about this model is it looks good whether it is on or off and it is not the centre point of my lounge whereas if I bought a larger version I'm sure it would have. It is also easy to flick between the television mode and either DVD or video section. You do not need to take out or put in plugs or leads just put in your choice of viewing.
When you finish watching the television you can turn it off on the unit itself or you can use your remote to do it for you. The only maybe not surprising thing is it makes the same annoying noise to tell you its closing down. What did surprise me is it remembers the channel you where last looking at it you turn it on again a few minutes or hours later, however if it is the next day it will not and you have to put in the channel you wish to go to, not a big deal at all just surprised me it did not remember.
For me this is a good quality flat screen television and although I have only had it a year, I have had not grounds to be disappointed with my investment. I particularly like the design and the fact with it being just a 32" that I do not feel it dominates the room. It was well priced and I feel it is easy to operate with a good quality picture.
Thanks for reading my review.

This TV is the perfect addition to my new home. I moved houses recently and I thought to myself, this old 5 year old TV will not look good in my new home with modern furniture etc. So I decided to have an upgrade and I found this affordable and beautiful looking Samsung TV.
The reason for my purchase was that I trust the Samsung brand with previous experiences and they make their TV's look amazing with the nice black glossy finish. I needed a larger screen that can play all the latest technology such as HD DVD's and blu ray discs.
I found the price to be very affordable and I bought it from an online shop in Australia for $799 AUD. I was very happy so I made the purchase.
The screen was also very large at 32 inches. I was on a budget during the shopping process and for the affordable price it was an offer I could not refuse. The TV is full HD ready and there three HDMI ports that are very useful for connecting multiple devices at the same time. I have my blu ray player and laptop connected to the TV which is very handy.
Picture quality is brilliant with its wide colour enhancement feature, you can really tell the difference compared to previous models. It supports Dolby digital sound and very high resolution up to 1366x768.
In summary, it's great TV for a very good price and it's very rich in neat features such as the HDMI and high resolution picture. The TV does not take up much room on my cabinet and gives the room a modern look. It's a very reliable TV and I have not had any troubles mechanically.
I recently purchased this television to replace my old fat one at 32" it is a huge 4" increase on my old TV. I know it isn't the biggest in the world but it is more that sufficient to watch TV and films on.
The thing that caught my eye about this TV is the style. It is one of the best looking TV's on the market. Its Slim and elegant look certainly make it stand out from the crowd.
The Remote is simple and even my 5 year old son can use the TV without any trouble. When I opened the box the remote even had batteries with it.
The picture quality of this TV is amazing. It puts most others to shame. The colour is bright and vibrant and watching TV makes is a much different experience. The image is crisp and sharp and since most TV's give me a migraine i was glad to find this particular one didn't.
The speakers are what you would expect, crisp and clear sounding. Overall I would give this TV 9-10
I recently owned a rather decent LCD TV that, unfortunately, became damaged when my sister threw a wii remote at it. Having seen this majestic beauty away, it was, alas, replaced by the TV company (I shalln't name who) with a TV that simply paled in comparison. I had to get rid and buy me another.
And then I came upon the Samsung LE-32C450. First of all, I'm a sucker for a well-designed machine, and the Samsung is one neat-looking device with a contemporary design and is nice and slim-line, too. I think 32" is also the best size generally for a TV in the living room, although obviously that will apply differently to everyone's individual home.
As people have previously mentioned, the remote control really is very easy to use and - more importantly - understand. My last TV remote was a logistical nightmare and seemed to be designed with neurosurgeons in mind, but the Samsung's can be used by anybody. And yes, batteries are included (it's always a delightful moment when you realise that you don't have to go out and get your own for a change).
As for the TV itself...well, Samsung rarely go wrong in terms of the way their technology looks, but this TV has the quality to go with it. The picture quality is just outstanding - for someone to go from a blurry, pixelly TV screen - like me - to this is a revelation. The picture on the screen is dazzling, both in terms of colour and in terms of sharpness and detail, and the sound is that of sharp, ear-deafening perfection. As with most TV's these days the Samsung is HD ready, too. I personally haven't moved into the world of HD yet (not too many channels or DVDs to pick from that actually take advantage of it!) but no matter: the picture quality on this TV is the best I've seen for standard, non-HD programming anyway, so if you haven't moved on from it yet either, this TV is a good way to go.
This is overall a fantastic television set and you'd be well-advised to purchase one for yourself.
My 'new' toshiba 32 inch tv conked out on me the other week, due to something wrong with a 'circuit' inside, unfortunately amazon didn't have that tv in stock anymore to replace it so I had to go on the search for a new one.
I paid £284 for my toshiba TV and to be honest I didn't want to spend much more on a new one either.
I don't know much about technology etc so the world of TV's is quite simple for me, I knew I wanted a 32 inch TV again, as well as it being black.
I searched amazon again only to come across the Samsung LE32C450 Widescreen HD Ready LCD TV with Freeview for £294.
If nosing at this tv on amazon it will provide you with quite a bit of high tech info which doesn't mean anything to me in the slightest, the main points to note are:
*Samsung HD Ready LCD TV with Freeview
*Connect your movies, photos and music easily to your TV via USB
*Anynet+ lets you one-touch control any compatible Samsung device connected via HDMI
*3 HDMI slots let you connect more devices in HD quality
*Wide Colour Enhancer brings the true colour of your picture to life
As usual amazon's delivery was prompt and early, the tv came packaged in an extra large samsung decorated cardboard box. Compact and secure packaged neatly again inside polystyrene to keep it safe and prevent any knocks so of course my tv was in pristine condition. Within the box you have your TV, phew lol, Remote control, batteries, power cable, tv cloth and instruction booklet, tv base and screws.
Despite being extra keen to switch your tv on and enjoy it's quality you do have to attach the base to the tv itself, with the screws provided and using your own screw driver you attach the base, ensuring the screws are tight so you can then place your new toy, sorry I mean TV onto your tv stand. Don't let the screws scare you are there are only 3, and there are only 3 available holes to screw them in so no confusion when attaching the base to make it a sturdy, and stylish TV. Before even switching the tv on you notice just how smart and stylish the TV is, the fact it is a flat screen tv makes it even more modern and creates a lovely look within any room. In fact I think it looks more expensive than what it is actually priced, which is brilliant. It is a shiny black colour, with a reddy hint at the very bottom which just adds to the style. Don't be put off by the 'red' though it's very discreet and creates more of a shine to the overall look of the TV rather than a different colour shade to it.
Setting up the TV was incredibly easy, placing the batteries provided into the remote, which is rather large by the way, and standing the tv itself onto my stand I plugged in the power cable and my sky plus lead and switched on the power. It took minutes to set up, just by using the remote, It had steps for me to follow so I didn't even have to read the instructions provided. You can of course adjust the picture but the picture I received instantly was amazing. It was clear, precise, large, colourful, had just the right contrast and brightness, it looks brilliant. The sound is clear, without distorting and sounding buzzy and blurry and the volume is perfect, you don't even have to turn it up that much for the sound to be pretty loud which is impressive.
Unfortunately when it comes to turning the TV on and off, you do this on the remote and it only turns it to standby, like most modern tvs for some reason. The TV makes up for the extra use of electricity though by playing you a little tune when it's switched on and off, nothing cheesy or funky, just a small noise, very similar to one a PC makes when switching on and off.
The very large remote that comes with the TV has large and clearly labelled buttons, pretty self explanatory buttons really without you having to read the instructions which is good, even the dimmest of people, like myself, can find them easy to understand lol. Not only do you have the remote to control some of the TV's functions but you also have a very snazzy 'touch screen' function on the bottom right hand side of the TV itself. They are very discreet markings on the tv allowing you to control the channels and volume, which is handy if perhaps you are in the middle of polishing and want to turn over etc and you are too lazy, like myself, to jump up and fetch the remote off the sofa lol! These are also handy when you have mislaid your remote too.
I'm not a gamer, only thing I play on is a DS but if you are like my brother and into your xbox, playstation etc you would find the 3 available HDMI ports very convenient as they will allow you to keep things plugged in whilst enjoying your gaming.
In the box, I have mentioned, you are provided with a cloth to wipe the tv screen. It wipes down very easily, even after toddlers fingers have sneakily touched it, no end of times I have switched my tv off and voila tiny finger tip marks from my darling 2 year old twins. No fear though, with a gentle wipe using the cloth provided the marks are gone and the screen is clear.
For the price of the TV I think it is fantastic, I was impressed with my previous Toshiba TV, but this is 10 times better for a few pound more. The sound is fabulous and the picture is strong and brilliant without even having to adjust it. It has a modern look to it and looks amazing in my living room as I'm pretty sure it would in many others, at what I would call a budget price really compared to some other TV's. I'd reccomend this TV to anybody looking to purchase a 32 inch TV as I feel it offers more than enough for a TV at nothing but excellent quality.
The Samsung LE-32C450 is a superb quality television, for me there`s no doubt of that! In fact, this is the first TV I`ve owned where I have absolutely nothing to complain about, which is rare, yet very welcomed! My Samsung and I have become the very best of friends, and I am a fan of it for so many reasons!
This LCD TV truly delivers an amazing screen and picture presentation, with color enhancement technology, meaning that every picture you gaze upon is crystal clear and very colorful and natural to look at! Pairing up with the amazing picture quality, comes the sound, which I have found to be excellent, A Dolby Digital Surround Sound a fact of quality, perfect for watching DVD`s and television where you want the sound to be presented as natural and detailed as possible.
For years and years, I owned a television where the remote control was a nightmare to both use and understand at all, therefore I was delighted to find the remote control following this television to be very logical and easy to use, and even better, batteries are included, a sensation in itself! With a remote control that is this easy to understand, this also opens up for children to understand how to turn on and find their channels easier, which I guess could be both a bad and a good thing... From sound to picture quality, I find this television impressive and amazing in every way, and I cannot think of a reason why I shouldn`t recommend this TV to all looking for a new, wicked good television! One thing I also must mention that I found so original and flat out cool, was that there`s a feature on the front of the television, where you can just touch the symbols and they do the work of the remote control... This I think of as brilliant and very modern, another cool feature to award this television five out of five stars! A quick mentioning also towards the design of the TV, as it`s super thin and very practical, the look it totally modern and fitting into all styles perfectly! To summarize, this is a brilliant purchase to treat yourself with, I wouldn`t hesitate for a minute! So click onto amazon and get yourself an Samsung LE-32C450 before Premier League really get`s going!
I recently moved into my own flat, and just before I moved decided I needed a new TV for my front room, as I wanted to keep the 19 inch Samsung TV in the bedroom for playing DVD's etc. I decided I wanted to stick with Samsung, as I have many products made by them and *touch wood* they have served me very well with no problems. I find Samsung to be a very well trusted, well respected brand that makes perfect quality products.
The first place I looked for a TV was on Amazon, as this is where I got a super bargain on my 19 inch Samsung TV, and once again I got the brilliant sale from Amazon. After checking the price elsewhere, Amazon has the cheapest price by far for the Samsung LE-32C450.
The LE-32C450 is a 32 inch, flat screen TV which truly is a wonderful tv.
From Samsungs Series 4, it is HD ready, with 3 HDMI cable ports, so you can connect multiple HD items. I found this very handy as I can plug in my Sky HD box and my Xbox 360 at the same time, so no having to switch wires or ports. There is also a USB connection on this TV, so you can connect multiple different devices that support USB connection.
The Samsung LE-32C450 also has wide colour enhancement technology, so you get an amazing picture with brilliant colours that are bought to life. The screen resolution is an amazing 1366 x 768 and it supports Dolby Digital Surround Sound. There is a good choice of auto functions too, including auto channel search and store and auto power off.
The LE-32C450 is a slim line TV, with a round stand and when you turn it on and off, it plays a cute little tune, like you would expect when shutting down a computer. The TV also supports 25 different languages, so you can set it to what ever language you require it to be in.
The remote control that comes with the TV (Batteries included) is very simple to use, and all the buttons are clearly labelled with what they do, so there is no confusion as to which button does what. I hate it when a TV comes with an over complicated remote! The operating system on the TV itself is just as simple to use, I find that the TV is very user friendly, and pretty much anyone can use it.
The best thing I love on this TV, is the fact that you can hover a finger over the controls on the front of the TV and they work! I had no idea it did this till I was cleaning the TV and some how turned it off!! Heat sensors on the front! Brilliant idea, although I can not find a mention of that on the Amazon listing for the TV LOL!! I know it is something simple but I was amazed by this, as I have never had it on a TV before, not even my 19 inch Samsung TV!
I love the picture quality on this TV! Even on non HD channels and movies, they picture is beautifully clear and precise, with strong colors and great details to everything, and then when you turn it onto High Definition - Wow! It really is an amazing picture that can not be done justice through words, you just have to experience it for yourself. The sound quality on the TV is just as brilliant, and you hardly have to have the TV turned up at all to get a great amount of sound from it. The volume goes up to 100, but so far, I have not had it past 20 - I fear any higher would make my ears bleed or my neighbours come ramming on my door!
Personally I think this is a brilliant TV and I could not ask for anything better, the picture is perfect, the sound is perfect, it really is perfect and if you are looking to get yourself a new TV then LE-32C450 from Samsung is the only way to go (unless of course you want a different screen size!) If you are going to get one of these, donn't bother going anywhere else, the best you will find is on Amazon, by a good £40 cheaper than the nearest price, and you also get free delivery from Amazon!
Take my word for it, there is no other TV like this one, so go get yourself a Samsung LE-32C450 today, you won't regret taking my advice.
