My husband is crazy about anything LED- lights, screens....but I was shocked when he bought Samsung 46 inch LED TV for £1300 last year i.e Feb 2010. When you could buy same sized plasma TVs for around £800, I didn't find the necessity of buying such expensive one. But once the TV was turned ON, I never blamed him again.
It was black, sleek to look at with a very thin flat screen. The base was a big rectangle made of hard tempered black glass. It looked more like a huge photo frame. It really went well with our living room furniture.
The screen can be swivelled on its base.
The picture is very clear, especially with the digitalised programmes, it's even better. It is a 1080 HDTV- which means it would upgrade any lower resolution picture to full 1080 p quality. The images appear crystal clear.
The LED technology means that the TV uses LED backlighting. This in turns means that we use less electricity, get ultra slim screen and better images. The lighting in this model is around the rim of the screen which gives the rim a bit of reddish tinge. When the television in ON, there is a meter which says how much less energy we are using with this TV.
It has 4 HDMI ports, USB ports and 2 speakers with woofer.
The audio component is fabulous. Its HD surround makes the movies come alive. For best results, you need to connect this to good blu-ray players and watch. You will almost forget going to cinemas.
I even connect my camera to watch photos and videos and they look amazing on the huge 46 inch screen.
The features and the menus are easily accessible. It was easy to set it up.
It was definitely worth the money. You can buy this TV today for around £1000 and if you can afford one, then definitely buy this- it will not disappoint you
