I dont understand why there are bad reviews of the Samsung LE40R88BD TV on here, perhaps its just bad luck for a few purchasers. Picture quality is outstanding even with built in Freeview or a separate box. And thats not even HD which is even better. Sound is also good but obviously not better than 5.1 surround. (read more)

Samsung LE40R88BD review - After 3 days changing picture and sound settings I lost patience and returned the set to Currys for a full refund which they did without fuss; the store was great to deal with.

A lot of people say the sound is poor but mine is fine.
The picture on the Samsung LE40R88BD tv is very pixelated when watching normal/digital tv or using a scart connection or any thing not HDMI connection. I have now managed to make the settings just right so that the pictures do not seem to boxy and pixelated.
This took very long to do. Nearly 3 hours a day for 3 day!! Almost threw the remote at it hence the 3 days as its very frustrating paying £500 to see every pixels and boxes!!... (read more)

This is really a very good value for money not only when I bought for £589.99 but also will save my electric bill as the operating cost is going to be minimal. Don't forget the recent hike in gas and electricity prices. Save your money and the environment at the same time with this TV. (read more)

I have had the Samsung LE40R88BD for about a month now, and can honestly say the picture quality and build quality are truly superb! I paid £705.00 from "Currys", and can safely say one of the best bargains I have ever bought. So if you are thinking of getting a LCD Tv, I would strongly recommend you take a look at this tv. Plus some of the deals you can get are outstanding! (read more)
