    It's ok, not that great. You could do much better with a Panasonic, NEC, Pioneer or even LG.

    Actually I ordered one PS-42S4S :

    I'm supposed to get it tomorrow or friday maybe, after much tries I couldn't find any LG 42PX11 not on display-demo and some shops didn't even want to order one ?!?! so I chose something else.

    It has :
    3 scarts 2 being RGB which is almost never the case...
    2 components never seen that in this price range (and I need 1 for xbox and 1 for ps2)
    1 audio out..always good not often found
    it has a 2 real tuners for PIP not like the LG

    for this price all the others have less connectivity , the big brands like Panasonic,Sony being the worst by far ! there's a Sony in the same size and price range near me and if you buy it you'll get 1 scart and 1 component that's it !!! lol I can't even connect my SONY DV camera with it's s-video output ?!

    I wanted a HDTV plasma but I think they are seriously over-priced compared to 852x480 plasmas..I rather buy a new exhaust for my car with the price difference :laugh:

    it will mainly be used to play PS2 gran turismo 4 when it's out
    racing games and DVDs (soon with a denon 1910 DVI)
    I only watch the news and some tv-series never movies and anyway the cable quality is cr*p where I live bulding is way too old I can't even get cable-modem internet because of LQ signals.

    I'll tell you if it's good or NOT very soon ;)
    I hope it is :rolleyes: otherwise :suicide:

    edit :
    online flash manual of it..the rear panel is something other brands could learn of...
    and I don't know what the X is...I didn't see a S4SX on samsung website ?!?!

    (hope my english is not too bad I'm Swiss)

    I had a Samsung 42v4sx and it has all the features you could want.But the picture quality was so c**p that I had to send it back.And I am not the only one who did the same.
    Do a search on this forum to find out before it's too late.

    I bought the Samsung PS42V4S and the picture looks a bit clayish at times on skin tones, but apart from that, the picture is pretty good, not excellent, but for £1500, it's a good buy

    I definitely wouldn't buy a Samsung without seeing it first.

    I'm a big fan of the picture produced by some plasma TV's based on Samsung panels (Philips 42PF9946, Tiny)...the Tiny's picture - using the latest Samsung panel - is the best overall 42" SD picture I've ever seen

    However, Currys/Dixons sell a 'special' Samsung model, but it is dreadful. I frankly do not believe it can be using the same panel, as it bears not even the slightest resemblance.

    i don't know what's going on - Samsung's specs and claims cant be trusted, theyre doing something odd and/or devious. I want to see their models somewhere, as their is every chance one is a great TV, but I sure wouldn't buy blind on ANY thing for that amount of money, and especially not the Samsungs...
