Samsung LE40B651T or Toshiba 42XV635DB?


Standard Member
Hey all,

I've been looking and researching for weeks now and still need some help in buying one of these two tv's!

I did have my heart set on the Samsung but the two things that are stopping me buying it are:

a, I've read on here that the input lag on the LE40B650/651/652T isn't very good when using a ps3? Can anyone confirm this?

b, The price differences between the two is about £100 to £120

I've read a lot of good things about the Toshiba 42XV635DB and it looks a good all round lcd tv for the price. I've had a look at both in the shops and the Samsung looked a bit better, but the gaming input lag issue (if its that bad?!) is putting me off it. The missus likes the Samsung so I suppose that should be a +1 for it too!

I'll be watching a lot of football on it, a ps3 will be used on it too and possibly Sky HD in the future (have Sky+ at the mo).

Can anyone recommend which to go for?

Toshibas reportedly have less lag

Retailers e.g. Amazon offering £100 cashback on the XV too
