do they exist - I've only seen the samsung 42" so far!
The built in stand usually isn't a stand - it accomodates the 3 CRTs which produce the picture in most RPTVs.
The Samsung 42" you've seen is probably their LCD RP device - the 'works' are much more compact on LCD which means it can be crammed up into the main part of the case more easily. The Sony 50" Grand Wega is similar.
Could you please tell me where you saw this Samsung.
Thank you so much.
I think if you go into Curry's and look at the Samsung 42" you will find you need to have nearly all the stand as it houses all the electronics. Nearly bought one, but got a Panny TX32PH40 coming in two days as I didn't want to replace the AV unit I already have.
Are there any other LCD RPs around? The Sony Grand Vega looks amazing but it's a 50 inch set and costs more than a 42 inch plasma!!
I just looked up the size of the samsung and it's only about 10cm shorter than most 42 inch models (1079mm compared to 1160.5mm for a TOSHIBA 42WT29B) so not really noticably different in size.
Yep! The Samsung SP43H6HD is a 43" 16:9 LCD RP tv and it has an optional stand which contains a sub-woofer. See it in on display in Comet or on Empire Direct website at:
Thanks Delta. That one looks interesting. A bit smaller than the average RP with a height of 750mm (I think that's without the stand/sub). This is the sort of thing I need as I don't have much room. Now to find some reviews...
It says on the Empire site:-
What Video & TV - Review (Mar 2002) "Great Pic & impressive DPL sound".
Yeah nice tv so long as you are sitting watching the tv at perfect viewing height. Say your in the kitchen watching from an angle. Oh dear whats that the funny black reflective surface, Whats that you say? You cant see the screen is that? Lmao. I wouldnt buy one with your money
Widescreen sucks I want my 43" Toshiba 4.3 screen now, not in 3-4 weeks
Don't all rear projections (LCD or otherwise) suffer from vertical veiwing problems? A friend of mine has a sony 41inch (don't know the model number, sorry) and you can only watch that from a seated position. If you stand up the picture goes incredibly dark and unwatchable.
I thought that if you wanted a big screen and variable viewing angles that a plasma was the only choice?
Yes, it's the same with my Tosh RP, but as I never stand up when I'm watching TV then this has never been a problem.
As this so called 'vertical viewing angle problem' is usually pointed out it magazine reviews, it tends to put people off (me included). I now look back and think 'what was all the fuss about?'. I don't even know why they still put it down as a bad point.
Can someone plese tell me where they have seen the Samsung LCD Rear projection TV (SP43H6HD). I see that some of you have seen it Currys but I've tried every Currys, Comet , Dixions and local TV shop and even the Edgware Road and have had no luck. I live in Strood so if anyone knows of anywhere that stocks it or has it on display I would be very gratefull. Also does anyone know when LG's new line of rear pro's will be released?
The Samsung referred to and the Toshiba range of RP tv's have non-reflective screens, so viewing from an angle is less of a problem. Also as the Samsung is LCD the viewing angle is far less critical.
Sorry I saw a Samsung in Dixons and presumed it was the same one, but the Toshiba I am getting does not have the problems like you said.
