    Hi All,

    Ive had my Sammy LE32R41BDX for nearly 2 weeks now and i cant praise it enough. This is my bedroom Tele and i use it for freeview, DVDs - look amazing, PC and soon to be Xbox 360 and PS3 (whenever it arrives) :D

    Ive finally gotten used to the PC being so large and in widescreen and wanted to post some pics of Half Life 2: Lost Coast. Now my graphics card is not all that good (256mb Radeon 9700) but this game looks amazing in widescreen, i cant beleive i used to play on a 17'' Monitor.

    Please view at actual size for better pic

    James

    PS all i use is a VGA to VGA cable, in my opinion the Sammy has got better when 'worn in' if u know what i mean

    Errrrrr, those are just screen grabs. Therefore not showing the quality of your screen at all!

    You're either a bit simple or this is a wind up?

    I was wondering the same thing myself. What's the point being made here?

    And you should see Lost Coast running with full HDR. That church scene is incredible.

    EErrrrm all i said is that the pics are showing Half-Life in widescreen not the quality of my screen... either you cant read or ur simple

    The pics where just taken ingame screen shots and resolution 1360x768

    Also my mate has a Nvidea 7800 GTX and yes those church scenes are quality - i NEED an upgrade, but cant afford one :(

    could of went for the 26" option and put the extra £200 towards a new gfx card :D

    hindsight is a wonderful thing however.
