About two months ago my father's trusty old TV set went to meet its maker and is no more. It was one of the old style sets with the huge backs a 32 inch leviathan sat in the corner of the room.
Me and my brother got our heads to together and came up with a list of suitable replacements for him to buy. So he went and bought his own choice TV set instead!! (oh dear) or so we thought.
The TV set he bought is a LCD flat screen , Samsung LE-37B550 37 inch. OK so far, I am even starting to be a little impressed with his choice.
After we had plugged the set in we used the auto installation facility, we then sat back and watched the set tune its self in. After a bit of fine tuning with the sound and picture we got it to our liking . Overall we found the picture and sound to be of a very high stranded.
It comes with a free view tuner, full HD 1080p, 4 HDMI sockets, 1 Scart socket ,pc input socket , optical connection , 1 USB port, 1DVI socket and some more sockets that we have no idea what they are for and probably will never use.
It has Nicam stereo with 2 x 20 watts RMS power out put. It as an E P guide and a what's on now and next button.
The price of the TV set was reasonable at £399.99 from ARGOS . They said it had been reduced by £150 originally costing £549.99. I have also seen the set priced at £426.92 on Amazon Who also have used sets priced at £380.21.
My Father made an excellent choice (sigh of relief) in buying this TV set. We are all real pleased with the TV set, it was easy to set up. The picture and sound or spot on. The only small snag is that it only as one Scart socket which meant we had to go out and buy a Scart adapter to fit some of the other equipment to the TV. Overall an excellent TV set.
Having bought this tv to replace the main one in the living room, it has lived up to all expectations over the past month. The sound and picture quality is excellent for the price and works perfectly with sky + HD. It is easy to use with the remote control supplied and is fully compatable with the sky remote so only one is necessary.
There are several irritations when first set up however this can be ocercome, namely the television playing a tune every time it is turned on and off but this can be disabled on the menu as it quickly becomes irritating. The only other problem is the source is not set to a digital box and therefore must be turned on in a certain way when used each time to remember the last setting.
Overall, I would wholly recommend this television to anyone who wished to purchase a reasonably large tv that has a modern and stylish feel to it.
The 1080p series 5 takes the Samsung LCD Full HDTV experience one step further. It also has a clean design with touch-sensitive manual controls that eliminate the side buttons. Connectivity is a snap with three HDMI inputs, including one that is side mounted with an available USB 2.0 port.
DNle+, an upgraded technology of DNle (Digital Natural Image engine) which has been recognized as Samsung Electronics' leading picture technology, was also added to the product. Samsung Electronics' proprietary DNle+ improves noise, contrast, color and motion.
Wide Color Enhancer 2 technology boosts color detail and luminance by creating a wider range of colors and makes traditionally weak greens and blues deeper and more vivid and enhances the red colors
To further enhance the viewing experience the series 5 also comes with movie plus feature that ensures greater clarity in motion pictures. In addition, the three entertainment modes (sports/movie/game) for optimal viewing and 2.2-channel sound with two woofers generate the best entertainment environment by providing vivid images and rich sound at the same time.
