What Hifi - 5 Stars

"...contrasts are impressive: whites are bright and clean, and the Samsung produces impressively deep blacks (though they lack ultimate detail). Motion is handled confidently, too. ... ..... a well-specified flatscreen capable of great images and with a lot of aesthetic cachet, add this to your shortlist."

"Slick , elegant and crystal clear. Added advantage being USB 2.0 port that lets you connect your devices and play them directly" - Arnab Mitra (Amazon Review -Samsung LE40A656 (A1FX version)

"Almost every aspect that could be improved has been improved: black level is slightly deeper; shadow detail is more revealing; flesh tones are more realistic; standard-def video processing is better; and on-screen display navigation is a lot less sluggish."

Currently all the reviews seem to point to the Samsung LE40A656 being a significant improvement in all areas on their previous range. Although it would be fair to say that the professional reviewers seem to still slightly favour the Panazonic TZ80 and Sony Bravia TVs - but only very slightly and the stunning good looks of the Samsung LE40686 are heavily in their favour.

The prices of LCD TVs are subject to heavy discounting in many cases - many hundreds of pounds differences over tradional high street retailers.
