Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

  • 40" LED SMART TV

Less frame, more to enjoy

Samsung’s One Design delivers a thin, stylish bezel for an eye-catching experience, even when the TV isn’t being used. With a small frame around the screen, the TV frame virtually disappears during viewing, creating an immersive experience. When it comes to sheer style, the narrow frame tastefully compliments any room.

Excellent TV

I got this TV through my cable provider on a 3 year contract. *Can't say no to FREE TV* Install this in my bedroom as I needed a TV anyways. Perfectsize for my bedroom, good picture quality, bright enough for night time use.

Love the DLNA feature for streaming straight from my computer. I have another Samsung TV connected to the same computer in the living room.

Great TV pictures. Works very well on Wireless and Lan. HD Internet movie playout is a problem

The issue here is the lack of memory and not enough processor power to run HD movies from the web without crashing or stuttering, even from their adapted Youtube app.

Forget their Web Browser App. It crashes all the time. Samsung has no intentions of providing memory upgrades as they have a 46" model with Dual Processors, tons of Memory and a Web Cam. Price ....3 times more then what you paid for this model. If downloading HD movies is important, the solution is to use a wide screen Laptop and connect to the TV with a HDMI cable. Don't forget to change your Audio output to HDMI. Using the Laptop as the controller, Web browsing is a cinch and YouTube HD movies play beautifully even through the wireless connection to the Laptop.. Now I'm happy

The smart features aren't quite ready for consumer use. I'm afraid Samsung isn't going to fix the software issues.

I bought this TV because we have cut the cord and we wanted the internet features. Apps like Netflix and Youtube work fine. They don't amaze me but get the job done.

The TV itself I find has a great image and is a pleasure to look at. Also, I very much enjoy that I can plug in a USB key and watch a video. My big complaint is the web browser. The advertising makes a point of mentioning the flash support but I can't find a website where it works. I always get the out of memory crash that everyone else is getting. If they could make this work then I could probably forgive it for the smart hub being a useless joke. Why can't I have a weather widget instead of the useless other tiles? Why is there no quality control of the apps in the store? I'm still not sure why they just can't make a version of android work.

I love the TV, but would love it more with some improvements.

Pros: Easy to set up. Love the Netflix and Youtube apps that are pre-loaded, I've also downloaded Daily Motion and Crunchyroll, and I am very happy with them on the TV.

The sound is surprisingly good. I have it down to 9 or 10. I'm afraid I will have noise complaints if I bring it up any louder. The remote is easy to use, with a central colorful button to get the Smart TV main screen. Most of the navigating is done with the up, down, left and right buttons. The minimal frame is nice - it's nice to upgrade to something that is all screen. The various eco functions are nice, like detecting the surrounding brightness to auto-adjust the screen brightness, and auto shut-off if you have fallen asleep in front of the TV. Cons: I am getting the same issue as a previous poster about an error message stating that the TV ran out of memory when I stream a video through the browser. This is not particularly a con of the TV, but if you are planning on surfing the web through the TV, it's definitely advisable to connect a wireless keyboard and mouse because otherwise it will take you a few minutes just to type in the url address. I would recommend the TV to a friend, but would recommend it to more people if Samsung came out soon with an update to fix the memory issue during web streaming.
