    Hope you get it, must be a decent set judging by the number of posts relating to this model!

    please don't start another Samsung Thread!!!

    I own one but it's got tearing problems. See mammoth thread for details. There are so many posts cos so many have problems. End of story! :clap:

    In short, don't buy one if you plan on using hi def at 60hz any time soon.

    As has been said before, it's because it's got such a good price/performance ratio.

    It's not the best 32" LCD out there, but you have to spend about twice as much for something comparable, from what I saw when I demoed it.

    I'm thinking of picking one up, won't use 60Hz via hdmi/comp so should be ok.

    Anyone know if there's anything in a similar price range/spec/features as the samsung coming (or out now even) withing the next 2-3 months?

    Cheers

    Even if this was a Samsung forum there are too many faults that have been raised to make it worthwhile. Let alone the widespread deprecation and distrust of them as a company due to their apparent lack of service and half hearted customer support and tech departments.

    Max, exactly... shoddy aftersales support of a product that was average (but good for the price) to begin with.

    That's because it's available for cheap.

    I own a Samsung LE-26R41BD TV which has the infamous tearing issue but after a month of constant use is showing problems with the picture processing resulting in some odd artificial looking areas of contrast (like it's having to display fewer colours or something) and patches of dark blue/black pixels that flicker in light areas (like white or grey) where they are shadows. I've no idea what is causing this intermittent problem but it's becoming very annoying.

    I'm currently awaiting a response from TribalUK so they can pick up this TV and send me a new one but I can't help thinking that the same thing will happen with the new one or that it will have dead pixels or something. To say I'm a bit ****** off is an understatement... :(

    I'd echo the sentiments about the customer service. Truly awful.
