“ Samsung LE40A616 - 40" LCD TV - 100Hz - widescreen - 1080p (FullHD) - HD ready 1080p - crystal black „
I wouldn't touch this with a barge pole!...I've had this TV for just 18 months, and I'm not a big 'watcher', it will have literally been turned on about 50 times and I've had to take it in for the sound to be repaired!.
Even when turned up fully the sound is low, and gets worse when playing DVDs (or if, like me you play things through a 'PC Sender' you can barely hear anything at all). The repair shop informed that this is a common problem with LCD TVs!
On the plus side the picture quality is clear, no problems with installation and it's fairly easy to use. Also if you don't want to attah it to a wall it does look good in a corner of a room particularly on a glass or chrome stand, the 'swivel' function is handy if you tend to move around betweena c ouple of sofas, for example.
Overall though judging by the amount of Samsung LCDs that were at the repair shop I would give this one a miss!
