Trusted Reviews say: "Right from the off the price/quality equation just doesn’t seem to make sense. The TV’s sumptuous high gloss finish, minimal fascia and subtle but telling curves all belong on a premium TV, not one priced at the ‘bargain basement’ level."...""an all-round package that represents truly outstanding value for money"

We say: Big Brand, even bigger on features, small on price. Just landed at Direct TVs and at this price wont be around long.

13-Jan-2008 Nathan: Which of these 3 tv's would you recommend for price and performance? Samsung LE32R87BDX, Phillips 32PFL5522D or the Panasonic TX-32LXD69A

buyitdirect: I would go for the Philips as it is at a special purchase price. Itwould normally be around £100 more

16-Jan-2008 mahdi: What is the difference between 32R88 and 32R81? and Which of these 2 tv's would you recommend for price and performance? (Samsung 32R88 - LG 32LB9) Thanks

buyitdirect: theres no such model as R81. the differnce between R88 & R87 is the position of the power button. Thr R88 has been made specifically for the DSG group Have you been looking on AVFORUMS?

22-Jan-2008 Mahdi: Thanks for your attentions. What would you think about Samsung 32 R series and Sony 32 V series (Price and Performance)? I think finally Samsung is the best choise. Is that right?

buyitdirect: Sony Don't do a 32V. if you could afford, go for the KDL32D3000U, 100hz excellent quality otherwise I would go for the Philips 32PFL5522D. these have been bought on a special deal & would normally be about £70 dearer. The only problem with the Samsung is that they do have a tendancy to suffer from faulty Freeview digital tuners, but they do have the best connectivity

12-Feb-2008 Vince: Is the LE32R87BDX the same as the LE32R87BD as I have seen on other sites? If they are different, what is the difference?

7-Mar-2008 Miles Gibson: Hi What are the main differences between the Samsung LE32R87BDX and the LE32R83BX And what one is better ? thanks

buyitdirect: the 83BX is a european model with no freeview, watch out what you're buying. Thr R87 is UK model obviously the one to buy

25-Mar-2008 Miles Gibson: What is the difference bettween this and the 37 inch 1080p Finlux it says above the picture quality on the Finlux is better but what one would you buy

buyitdirect: the samsung is a standard resolution set the finlux is full 1080p. value for money, go for the Finlux

9-Apr-2008 wardy: Would you recommend this TV over the 37" Teco? I am not very knowlegable re TV's and am buying this for my nephew at his new house. Would like to know which is a better purchase?

buyitdirect: If you want to impress, go for the Samsung although the new Teco does look very similar and comes with a 3 year warranty

10-Apr-2008 alfiescruff: Bought and received this tv yesterday and connected up. Currently only using analogue signal until I get Sky fitted. Not expecting any improved picture quality until then. However really concerned about the sound quality. The unit has to be set to such a low volume level that it is inaudible otherwwise there is vibration and distortion. Is this a fault? or a setting issue?

buyitdirect: I think it is a setting issue. It could also be due to the strength of your analogue signal. Samsung are not renowned for the quality of their speakers, any issues are usually with them beiong underpowered and have to be turned up quite high

13-Apr-2008 Pete: Has this model got PIP and/or PAP ? Thanks

buyitdirect: This TV features Picture-in-Picture.

1-Nov-2007 ron: does this model come with a swivel base?

buyitdirect: Yes it does have a swivel base.

20-Dec-2007 Mark: Hi, I'm looking for a decent 32" LCD TV. I just want to watch telly (no gaming or things like that) but want to be as future proof as possible (HD, HDMI, dig tuner). The Samsung LE32R87BDX looks good, but I've heard positive things about the Finlux 32FLD760 and various Sony models. Considering picture and sound quality, reliability, looks etc etc which would you recommend? Any advice gratefully received. Thanks.

buyitdirect: The samung television was awarded 5 stars in what hi-fi magazine and is a very good television. The finlux is also a very good television and offers a higher contrast ratio than the samsung. Both televisions have digital tuners and so are ready for the digital switchover, they all have lots of various connections for connecting other devices.
