We needed a new television, the standard one had bust a fuse and the family wanted something up to date and we looked in local stores for a HDTV that was cost effective and is reliable. So after much debating between this and a 32" samsung we chose this and did we see RESULTS! i installed it into our cabinet and scanned for the channels, didnt take long and we definately recognised the difference! we got Currys to deliver it and mount it and they were soo helpful at the time, it did intially overpower the room but trust me when i say you will get used to it.
*note you can search for the latest deals online which do include free DVD players, this one did so be on the lookout (:
->High defintion ready meaning you can connect a HD top box or a HD dvd player, for me i used it with my xbox 360's HD drive
->Comes with a stand so you can place it on a flat surface, distrubes the weight evenly so it wont fall forwards or backwards
->High quality viewing will show you more depth in colour, better sound and overall a better performance than standard definition
->Loads of connection ports, just about everything you need!
->On the side of the TV there are highly sensitive buttons, you can easily rub across them and another downfall is that it is not clear to read so you will have to memorise them before it fades eventually
Overall i give it (5)*****out of (5)*****stars
This was a SDpwnage review, if your serious about getting an iconic 42" then go Samsung, they are very reliable and of perfect quality........PEACE=P
I wasn't happy when my husband announced that he'd replaced our 26inch flat screen television with a 42inch flat screen television. Our sitting room is quite big but this television is still imposing and dominates the room when it's switched on. With that said the flat screen means that it's easier to ignore its presence. We've never had a problem with it and this is with two toddlers smearing jam, peanut butter, and various other nasties across the screen on an almost daily basis. It's taken the knocks that you would expect from a three-child household and has stood up to it. I haven't been able to find a way to switch it off, the off switch puts it on standby and so you have to turn it off at the plug to actually turn it off so if you're trying to save the planet it may not be the best choice. If you're very house proud you would have to dust it a few times a day as the slightest bit of dust shows up well on the black frame. If you're sat at an angle to the television the screen is still clear and the picture quality isn't affected. The HD function is very good especially when paired with surround sound, not supplied with the television. Great for watching films and memorable events.
