Samsung LE40M86BD Review

Hope you guys had a great Easter holiday this weekend just past. Shame it had to end, so it’s time to get back to serious work. Colin has put up his Toshiba 32C3030D review, and I’ve also uploaded the first 4 pages of the Samsung LE40M86BD review.

New HDTVtest Forum

You may have noticed the link to our new forum appended to the bottom of the new reviews. Our old comment system was becoming too bloated: check out the Sharp LC42XD1E review and you’ll see what I mean – there are 50+ comments added to each page without an easy way to sift through them to find the information you require.

So we think that a forum is the best way forward… feel free to register (no confirmation needed) and discuss the reviews and HDTV-related stuff.
