Just like house prices, many HDTV prices are falling as well. For example the 40-inch Samsung LE40A558 LCD HDTV we have here was once priced at over £1000, and can now be found for just over £600. Not a bad deal at all, considering it’s a fairly large LCD HDTV at 40-inches from a respectable brand, and features a 1080p / Full HD LCD panel.
For it’s price the Samsung LE40A558 offers some nice specifications, such as a 30,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, DNIe+ image processing and 24p support. DNIe+ enhances the image quality, while 24p ensures the best quality playback of blu-ray content, allowing 24 frames per second play without judder or motion blur.
The Samsung LE40A558 has a highend looking, stylish design with a glossy bezel and built in invisiable speakers. The speakers feature SRS Trusurround technology for improved sound quality. There are three HDMI 1.3 inputs on the LE40A558, all which feature Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC) control allowing the HDTV to communicate with your other home theater devices.
Review Quest has two reviews of the Samsung LE40A558, receiving 4 out of 5, and say the sharp image is immediately impressive. The picture is where it’s at, and the Samsung LE40A558 will win many fans here, with detailed, sharp image. If you’re interested in raw screen size for your buck economics than the last word in AV quality, the 4LE0A558 has far more going for it than the vast majority of its cheap and cheerful rivals.
