I'm not quite sure what unknown force it is that seems to be causing manufacturers everywhere to coat every new electrical appliance in glossy, black plastic, but I'm not complaining. Especially not about this TV. The Samsung LE-40B530 is slim, packed with features, and high definition, and there's virtually nothing to complain about. Let's start with the picture quality.
Absolutely no complaints here. The image appears crisp, without any sort of blurring or color bleeding. The only time the screen became unwatchable was when moving right round to the side. This TV is high definition, so the picture is crystal clear, and sharp to boot. Definitely a major win here.
With forty inches of screen real estate, this isn't going to disappoint anyone. The TV itself is comfortable large, and unlike some of the 50-60 inch monsters, you won't be clearing objects away from a wall to find a place to fit this TV; it sits quite nicely in a corner. The large screen should appeal to everyone, and a decent number of people can huddle round it and still remain within the comfortable 178 degree viewing area.
This TV comes with all sorts of extra little features, but the main ones are obviously the inputs for external devices. Got a laptop with HDMI-out? Grab a cheap cable and plug one end into this TV, and the other into your laptop. Voila, forty inches of desktop. The HDMI in/out also allows you to plug in other assorted device, including some specialised smart phones. The Samsung also comes with a VGA input too, just in case your computer isn't HD ready. I did notice the lack of a DVI port, though.
Clocking in at a comfortable £479.99, this television is definitely worth considering when looking for a reasonable up market, stylish TV. Everything comes together in a nice, glossy package, and there will certainly be no buyers regret after splashing out on this.
Summary: A absolutely brilliant TV, and definitely worth a purchase.
