was getting a UE40C6000.......

I thought I had it sorted. I’m looking for a flat screen 40 inch and saw the UE40c5800 Samsung in
Tesco and the picture looked great. Spent the last few weeks researching the internet, could not
find anything wrong with it but then saw the Samsung UE40c6000 was slightly smaller (961 x 585
compared to 1107 x 671). Great, I thought. That will do. Then a last check around the internet I
found people were suffering from clouding with the 6000, I guess the 5800 will not be much
different so I find myself back to square one and I need to start trawling through all the TV’s
out there from scratch again. I can’t remember half of what I read and as for the model numbers,
I’m not sure the TV manufacturers could make things much more complicated. So, I wondered if anyone
has an suggestions, couple of 'can't go far wrong with's...' to help me narrow down the field? The
thought of going back to where I was 3 weeks back is depressing to say the least.

Budget, 800.00GBP. Size 40inch, DLNA compliant, wireless capable, mainly used with Freeview
(built in Freeview HD preferable), occasionally blue ray player and Wii games console. Not
interested in 3D. The smaller overall look the better and of course a great picture!

Really appreciate any suggestions.

In the same boat to a degree, I have been looking for a 40 or 42 inch Samsung or LG. Had a look around a bigger Currys today and really liked 2, the LE40C652 and UE40C6000, both at £699.
I had my usb with me with a DIVX movie and both played well.
I have seen a good deal at Pixmania for the 652, with the C6000 being slightly more, however from what I have seen the full RRP of the C6000 is much higher, in some places around £1200.
The clouding comments on here have put me off a bit though.

Having said that the one on display in Currys looked great, so.....?

My Samsung LE40C530 had clouding, but it went after a day or two.

I'd buy the tv from somewhere like Amazon, because i've heard they have a very good, no quible return policy. I wonder what they'd say if you emailed them with your concerns?
Or you could tell a local store you're interested in buying a tv, but you want to check it for clouding, before parting with your cash.
