Samsung LE37B530 Review – A Redefined Viewing Experience
Released by Samsung in 2009, the LE37B530 model was one of its medium level LCD television sets that were aimed to provide a great viewing experience to the public without having the need to burn a hole in the pocket. It came with a plethora of goodies, consisting of innovative picture quality technology, and features in full High Definition. By no means is the Samsung LE37B530 LCD TV a basement dweller as it leads the pack in its class level.
Provided with Full HD resolution capability with an HD Freeview tuner and DNle+ technology, the LE37B530 can ensure that you get top quality high definition videos every time when connected to a high definition video source. This Samsung TV can also be used as a computer monitor and is great to use with any gaming console when used in its game mode.
At the back of this medium level LCD TV from Samsung, you will find that the LE37B530 LCD TV has a number of connection ports that can be easily connected to a home entertainment system and other players and devices. You will find three HDMI ports, one VGA, a SCART and component socket for your older devices, one composite, digital optical and analog phono sound outputs, a stereo jack, one TV aerial and PC input, the downside is that it doesn’t have a USB slot. This wide variety of connections makes the Samsung LE37B530 LCD TV a very versatile TV that can be used for most devices that are available today, such as an HD camcorder, Blu-Ray player, or an HD-TV box. It’s just a little disappointing that albeit the space available in its sides, there are no ports available for easier access, especially if the LE37B530 is to be wall mounted.
Aside from the impressive video output quality, the Samsung LE37B530 LCD TV also has an impressive audio output. Even without the aid of a home theatre, this Korean made 37 inch LCD TV can deliver crisp and distinguishable sound. Boosting its audio performance is its built-in SRS Tru-Surround HD system equipped with indirect firing technology coming from two hidden ten watts speakers. The Samsung LE37B530 LCD TV also supports a NICAM stereo tuner and is Dolby Digital Plus compatible.
For easy configuration with just a touch of a button, the Samsung LE37B530 has a variety of preset audio modes to choose from, including, standard, clear voice, cinema, music and you can even customize it. To do so, this TV has an equalizer with balance and bandwidth modes.
Other features of the Samsung LE37B530 LCD TV include teletext capability with one thousand page memory. It also has a progressive scan, automatic volume, manual or automatic channel search, custom channel search, lock and unlock channel, fine tuning, PCMCIA card reader, clear filter pro, guide TV and on screen menu.
Included in the box are the standard accessories such as the remote control, a cleaning cloth, power cable, user guide and manual, four screws to attach the stand, a base cover, and a base that allows the stand to swivel to get the optimal viewing pleasure. There is no HDMI cable though, which means you have to purchase one separately.
The Samsung LE37B530 37 inch LCD TV is a remarkable TV for the price. If you want higher resolution and contrast levels, you would be better off with the more expensive models. But on its own, the LE37B530 provides more than average quality and is worth every penny.
