Say hello to the best 40in TV the world has ever seen.

Superb picture quality ; Stunning space-saving design ; Video-rich online services

Interface impenetrable in places ; Picture presets favour high contrast over natural colours ; Superfluous gesture and motion controls

Only down side so far is sound which has to be used on high volume

Samsung UE40F8000


I am deaf in one ear ,but the sound quality was noticeably better than my old set,but I decided to buy a sound bar to enhance the sound a bit more. It worked a dream after a slight problem in setting it up
