    Hi,
    My old TV is about to die and Im looking into getting a new HD LCD Screen. I have a Max of around £950 to spend and want something around the 32" - 40" area and it needs to have Surround Sound with it.

    Currently Im looking at this one (SAMSUNG LE32R73BD) in Currys as it seems a good deal for £929 -

    http://www.currys.co.uk/martprd/sto...m=11&sm=0&tm=0&sku=421514&category_oid=-30633

    Does anyone have this TV and recommend it? It comes with the stand and surround sound setup which is what I was wanting.

    Or does anyone have any other recommendations?

    Does anyone know the Full Detailed Specs of the SAMSUNG LE32R73BD as I can only seem to find very basic specs for it... I was mainly wanting to know if it supports that 1080i or 1080p.

    Also, is their much difference in 1080i and 1080p?? the most High Definition use the TV will be getting used for would probably only be an Xbox360 and a PS3.

    Thanks

    mate, ive done loads of research and online shopping. i was gonna buy a LE32R74BD for 588 then it went up to 599... still good, that was on directtvs - but i changed my mid and bought a 26 sharp ( from currys, picked up ).

    929 is a lot imo

    Great prices but the onyl thing is, when Im buying something for that price I like to buy from a shop (eg Currys etc) just so I know that if anything goes wrong I can bang it in the car and take it back to them.


    Ok, I have found a new deal but this time on a LG tv.. Does this seem good? -

    I would tread carefully with directtvs.co.uk,they do have good offers but don't expect to get your money back or any remorse from the manager Steven Nielsen when the product fails,stick with the reputable companys if i were you,we purchased a laptop & had nothing but problems with the warranty then like fools purchased the tv from directtvs (which are a sister company) but the Hannspree JT26ITP died within 24 hours but as it was purchased for christmas it sat wrapped for best part of a week then they were closed until 27th dec & now refuse to replace so now we are having to get it repaired,they are also now refusing to offer additional warranty as it has got a fault & we they are stating that we should have taken it out when purchased..if i was you i would avoid.

    • If a consumer chooses to request a repair or replacement, then for the first six months after purchase it will be for the retailer to prove the goods did conform to contract (e.g. were not inherently faulty)
