Customer Questions and Answers

30/12/2008 Kevin: can you rotate this screen when on the stand

sajidH: you can move it left/right only.

26/12/2008 Colin: Can you purchase insurance after the first years warranty has expired?

jeremy: up to the end of the standard warranty

25/12/2008 marc: was woundering how long delivery would take when your first opening day after xmas thanks marc

jeremy: Delivery would now be sometime in the first week of Jan. It is a pr booked slot with yourself so will all depend on when you want it for

20/11/2008 Paul: Hi again just another quick question, i have been searching the net for a new t.v and would like to know why other tv's i have found under this model number have 30,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio but this only has 20,000:1? Sorry for all the questions just bwant to make sure i get the best tv.

jeremy: conflicting info from Samsung. According to their website its 30,000 but the info sheets, we've had from Samsung say 20,000... We've set our specs up based on the info we have had directly from Samsung... either way, if you were to look at a TV with 20,000 along side a set that is 30,000:1 you wouldn't be able to see any differences with your eyeee

19/11/2008 dog man: do you have to pay to watch freeview channals

sajidH: You don’t have to pay. As its clear by its name freeview. All channels are free.

19/11/2008 Paul: Does this tv have the sports mode?

sajidH: Yes it has.

16/11/2008 mike crumley: can this tv be wall mounted?

sajidH: Yes it is wall mountable.

09/11/2008 marie: hi we are getting sky hd would this tv be ok to watch it on....or would we be better with a full hd tv

jeremy: you will get a better picture, naturally, with a full HD set. a standard 42" plasma has a resolution of 1024x768, where as a 1080p panel is 1920x1080, so nearly twice the number of pixels

27/10/2008 marius: Can this tv be used as a PC monitor ?

Jeremy: yes it can

19/10/2008 ieuan: what is this tv like with such things like football are there any shadows or pauses

Easycom: this is an entry level plasma so will not be the greatest for fast moving images, unless you have Sky HD

10/10/2008 Ronnie: What is the safest stand to place TV on, what do you recommend.

Easycom: All stands will take the weight, it all depends on what you like the look of. Obviously you need to look at the stands that are suited for TVs 40 inch and over.

04/09/2008 sims: what is the sound qualitylike when watching movies & playing computer games

Easycom: It features SRS Trusurround XT which delivers enhanced dialogue clarity, trubass which gives a deeper bass performance and WOW Surround for a fuller, richer and wider sound.

01/09/2008 Podge: Will you deliver to Ireland?

Easycom: Yes we deliver to ireland. Please call our sales team for delivery options. 08702642125

25/05/2008 Har: Will watching 2.35:1 ratio DVD movies (ie with black bars) cause image retention ?

Easycom: If these 2.35:1 movies are all that are played on this TV, and for an extended amount of time (eg. always on), then this is likely (as with all TVs). For general movie viewing, you will have no problems.

16/05/2008 Anon: How does this TV compare in terms of picture quality to the Panasonic THPX80B ?

Easycom: There's nothing between these two in terms of picture quality.
