Samsung LE-37 A 557


The Samsung has difficulty with cinematic 24p picture material and renders it sluggishly., The built-in loudspeakers deliver poor quality sound - an external AV-receiver is definitely required for sound improvement

The Samsung LE-37 A 557 is very convincing with superb contrast and excellent HDTV representation despite its minor foibles. The Korean manufacturer does not only prove itself in terms of optical appeal; its resourceful engineers have managed to...

Samsung LE32A558 32in LCD TV


From a hint of red to something a little more straightforward - Samsung's LE32A558 TV.

Samsung LE32A558 review


Samsung's 5-series of screens has eluded us until now, but if this 32in model is as impressive as the rest of the range, it's on to a winner

Smooth good looks ; half-decent tuner ; good with DVD, cracking Blu-ray pictures

Sound is easily flustered ; some coarseness to TV pictures

Less flashy than many in the Samsung range, but among the most worthy, the 558 is a full £500-worth

Samsung LE40A558 review


Detail levels are among the best in its class and the deep blacks impress

Detailed, sharp pictures ; impressive black levels and insight ; judder-free 24fps motion

Could do with punchier whites and more vibrant colours ; a little noise to poor Freeview broadcasts

This Samsung doesn’t quite stick out from the crowd, but it’s an undeniably good TV

Samsung LE40A558 review


Can Samsung's Series 5 40-incher still hold its own against some newer competition?

Nice looking TV ; Good price ; Plenty of features

Some severe motion smearing ; Average audio

The lack of 100Hz processing makes this screen a real disappointment by Samsung's usually lofty standards, which is a shame as it's a decent TV

Samsung LE32A558 review


Capable of miraculously subtle colours and good-looking, too

Lovely colours ; Decent black levels ; Friendly, well-featured and stylish

Conspicuously blocky motion ; So-so Freeview performance

A stylish, friendly and generally capable set, only let down by an indifferent performance with broadcasts

Samsung LE40A558


Unless, that is, you're easily seduced by a good body. For despite not enjoying the 'touch of colour' boasted by higher spec models in Samsung's range, the LE40A558 still has the glossy finish and sultry lines required to stand out on today's crowded...

Nicely designed, very cheap, decent feature count, solid pictures

Processing can glitch, doesn't sound particularly great, and there's much more motion blur than you get on Samsung's higher spec TVs

Samsung LE40A559


A compelling mid range offering with excellent all round performance ..

As a mid-range alternative to high end LCD TV's from Samsung as well as other manufacturers, the LE40A559 offers a compelling option. It does most things well and in some areas it is outstanding. Its overall performance places it above the mid range...

Samsung LE32A559


Samsung's mid range offering loses very little to the higher spec A656 series ..

The 32A559 should gain more recognition for its overall performance. Not quite as 'polished' as its higher spec sibling the 32A656 its picture performance is almost as good and being a little cheaper, deserves some serious consideration.

Samsung LE32A556


The competition is hotting up for 1080p Full-HD TVs at affordable prices, but is this 32in model really able to deliver?

Fantastic HD image quality / high quality sounds

Little benefit of 1080p on a 32in TV / scruffy standard-definition pictures

The major selling point is native support for 1080p video, with a 1920x1080 resolution that matches the top-quality HD spec used by Blu-ray discs. However, at typical viewing distances, this level of detail is more than the eye can see
