Samsung LE19R86 Reviews

"This is a great buy. I have been using it with my PS3 and the picture quality is impressive. Plus it was really easy to set up."

"Within 5 minutes I had it up and running, I just plugged it in and it pretty much did everything itself.
The Freeview EPG is great, it populated really quickly. I really like how the remote control is set out, it even has a button to illuminate some of the buttons in the dark.
I just can't find anything negative to say about it."

Philips 42PFP5532D Reviews

"Picture quality is brill, it actually seems to get even better the longer the plasma tv is on. The built in Freeview tuner is a real bonus as the quality is definitely much better through this rather than the analogue channels. When watching sport the picture looks great, there's no blurring at all during quick movement on the plasma screen."
