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 PS50A556 review


Samsung's 5-series 50in plasma is offered at a bargain price, but can it deliver good enough big-screen performance for the money?

Rich, vibrant colours ; good black levels ; steal of a price

Some blocking on tuner ; not the subtlety of the best

Not quite the bargain blockbuster we hoped for but still a tempting TV on a budget

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 PS50A556 review


More pixels for less pounds

Superb specs for the price ; Great build quality ; Sharp detail

Some motion artefacts and noise visible ; Black levels not best in class

A steal at half the price of Pioneer's 50in Kuro, this plasma still puts in a sterling performance

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...
