  • Excerpt: "...I have to say that Samsung do it better. LOOKS: Black, sleek and stunning. Samsung products have always looked the part. I did tell myself not to buy another gloss black product, because of finger prints, and dust shows up easily, but this TV looked so nice, I decided to ignore me. Nice and thin for it's size, it has a stand that rotates and a red bar across the bottom, that doesn't seem to have any purpose other than to add a bit of colour. SOUND: ...
  • Pros: Looks, picture and sound quality, connectivity, small for a 40" TV
  • Cons: Only 1 SCART socket, this model doesn't support videio playback through USB

  • Excerpt: "The tv is a really good quality and the small bit of the red at the bottom of the tv really makes it work. Viewing it from different angles is really good I walked around the tv and it stayed the same until I was practically behind the tv so I couldn't see it. Really easy to use I didn't even need to use the instructions just took it out the box plugged it in and popped in the aerial and boom it was working it has got built in freeview so thats ...
  • Pros: Freeview built in
  • Cons: Gets a bit scratched easy

  • Excerpt: "...other manufacturers had accomplished before, samsung has really caught up and delivered.. 1080p, usb media support, better user interface and a much better cabinet design, even the base was sturdier, bit heavy though.. attaching the tv to the wall was pretty easy, it took us half an hour... being on the wall really improves the viewing pleasure, even, when we sat on the side we could watch the whole picture..very helpful when u got a family in the ...
  • Pros: usb media support, 1080p picture quality
  • Cons: touch sensitive on the bottom not very responsive, have 2 use the remote .  more usb ports would hlp

Stunning picture quality for the price

Tim Bisley, Amazon
30 April 2010
  • Summary: I bought this TV a couple of months ago now, primarily for Blu-Ray movie watching, and the picture quality is absolutely breathtaking. Colours are rich and life-like and the detail levels are sublime. The standard refresh rate (50Hz I think) means that some fast panning shots can become a little hard to pin down visually- 'blurry' would be far too strong a word.

Great price but crummy menus & remote

Patrick Corley, Amazon
22 March 2010
  • Summary: The most annoying thing is the TV menu for changing channels etc. Big Black box appears in top left corner with channel number (10 x 20cm), this disappears after a few seconds which is ok. However, if you select alternative input (AV, SCART, DVD), you have to select input, then press OK, to 'ok' it only then will Big black box disappear. Most other TV just take a few seconds and accept input automatically, not this TV though.

Samsung LE-40B530 LCD Flat Screen TV

Spuggydoo..., Ciao
4 February 2010
  • Excerpt: "From my experience as a Samsung TV sales person a while ago, I had the opportunity to take an ex display TV home to get a true life feel of the TV so I could explain to customers the benefits. Honestly, you can't fault the LE-40B530. I've partially owned nearly the full range, at the moment I have a Series 7. The blacks are excellent, especially watching movies. The colours are bright and vibrant and always manage to suck you into watching more ...
  • Pros: Picture quality, stylish, excellent size, best in its market
  • Cons: I liked it when they made white TV's

Good, but not great

John-Lee Langford "John-Lee", Amazon
14 January 2010
  • Summary: I've owned several Samsung products, and have never failed to be disappointed with them- great specs and poor performance tend to make them a "jack of all trades, master of none" in my opinion. I did my research, not only on this model, but on their TVs generally, and all reviewers and owners were generally positive so, with some trepidation, I purchased the LE40B530P. The setup procedure was very straightforward, and each step was very well explained onscreen.

  • Excerpt: "Fantastic product, Samsung make great LCD TV's great TV at the price. I have mounted the TV on the wall and channelled the wires into the wall and it looks fantastic, the lovely square, black lines makes it perfect. To mount the TV was really easy, just four bolts in the back using a bracket I purchased separately. Really easy to tune in, the instructions are clear and easy to follow. The picture and sound quality is great. There have ...
  • Pros: Great picture, easy set up, looks fantastic

The steps of installation are simple to folow and made easy by the smiplicity of the remote control which is also simple and efficient and ...
  • Pros: A real Looker, Efficient and great picture
