When i decided to decorate my bedroom i felt it was time to buy a new television as the one i had i got about 11 years ago.Okay so it still worked but it was small,very old and bulky..did i say small
**Finding the right television(for me)**
First thing i wanted something that had a flat screen-no bulky tv for me.It had to be stylish and i wanted something that was bigger than my pc monitor. (22 inches wide)
Other things i looked for-i wanted something decent enough for playing computer games on. Also a brand that i had heard off-i know brand isn't everything but i wanted something that would last as long as my previous tv.
After looking at reviews on play i finally picked Samsung Series 4 32" LE32A 436 / 456 T1DXXU HD Ready Freeview Widescreen LCD T.
I bought this on Play.com for £379.99 (Free Delivery).The recommended retail price was apparently £599.99.So as play told me i "saved"£220.00 (36%).I felt reasonably happy about this as it seemed to be about the same price as similar models.(and i got cashback :-))
**What's in the box?**
The packaging the tv came in was very sturdy - i would say that it was very well packaged. Items you receive are pretty standard ie you get a remote.The one thing you don't get which i would advise you to get is a HDMI cable.Oh and maybe a wall bracket but that depends where you would want to set it up.

lOOKS GREAT-slim,sleek,shiney,and it swivels!!
I have nothing but good things to say about this.It was really easy to set up , the picture quality is AMAZING, (really clear).It has built in freeview which is good as it cuts down on clutter since i don't need a freeview box anymore.The remote has a button that lets you switch effortlessly between games and cinema.The sound is also very good even at high volumes and it goes great with my wii/xbox/ps2. I wish i had bought it sooner!!!
