My New 40" Full HD LCD TV

I recently purchased a Sumsung LCD TV (LA40M81BD). I've been waiting for the Full HD LCD's to drop in price down to AUD$2000. I ended up paying $2200 for this one, just a little over my limit.

Here are some specs:
  • Panel - Full HD Super Clear Panel
  • Resolution - 1920 x 1080
  • Dynamic Contrast Ratio - 15,000:1
  • Response Time - 8ms
  • Built-in HD Tuner
  • Picture in Picture
  • HDMI Inputs - 3
  • PC Input

Here are some photos:

I purchased the TV for a few reasons:
  • Full HD gaming on my PlayStation 3
  • Full HD movies on Blu-ray on my PlayStation 3
  • Digital TV (perfect reception)
  • I love shiny black things
What is Full HD?

1080 lines vertically, most LCD TV's and Plasmas have a maximum of 720 vertical lines.

Why LCD over Plasma?

Full HD Plasma TVs are very rare. Plasma TV's use more energy. Plasma TV's have a high failure rate. Take my advice, buy an LCD.

  1. I'm jealous of your TV set! It was only two years ago that I’ve been able to buy one for myself. Haha! Is it still the TV you’re using? It’s been four years, so I assume that if you probably have a new one. It also might be one of the newer HD TV models that we have today! ;)
