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.

Excellet Top End TV

I purchased this TV for my new home sometime April 2012. Having owned this now for almost 2 years, I can say i'm in love. I get compliments from people whenever they come over.

The picture quality of the display is amazing, they make regular television pop out unlike any other TV. When I watch bluray, makes it even mind blowing! I rarely use the 3D feature on it though, but nice to have. I love the DLNA feature where I can connect wireless to my computer on the same network. I'm able to stream movies or TV shows off from my computer. The connection needs to be improved though, as I sometimes get disconnected or long time loading intermittently. Overall, this is a great TV, but for the price when I purchased it, could of been better, but price you pay for top of the line product.

this product and like all yours products have great features but too many,

dear samsung; this product and all other products made by samsung like TVs and home thathers are excellent value, good design (but who cares about design of tv , it's not a car).

but features are to complicated to that level that I have electronic trade and I have trouble to learn yours features on tv or home thather.I don't have time to read and remember evrything out of your 500 page ovner manual and remote with 500 butons wich when you start presing lead you to another 500 useless features. and on the end the most important is quality wich is very very poor, last samsung tv that I had (about 4years ago) broke down 4 days after 1 year warranty ( I fixed my self- 4 burned capacitors of 10 volt in circuit where is 10 volt power supply , capacitors spouse to be atleest 15 volt), my samsung home thather broke down after year and half. so overall is fair and economical but very poor quality.

Beautiful screen, but still clouding issues

We were planning on buying a 52" tv for our family room, but back in the days the frame were huge and we were limited to the 52". We ended up not buying a tv, and saw the changes made to the ES series especially with such a small bezel we decided to upgrade to a larger tv, hence this 60 inch.

The colours and viewing angles are great, and the 3D works charms (always great to see the kids reach out to touch air). It was also very light and thin for the size of the tv and am very happy to have waited. Like other LED's this too had clouding issues along all four corners of the screen and became an annoyance during transitions in the movie where the screen is black. The other issue is 3D wasn't always perfect, there are some movies such as the Avengers and some games that still showed a lot of cross talk and irritated the eye from time to time. Turning on the 3D also darkened the screen, so settings would require to turn up the brightness a bit. The bezel when compared to the 55" of the same model is actually thicker which we found a bit disappointing but not a deal breaker. It was great to finally get a large screen tv in the family room and becomes an instant eye catcher to guests. The evolution kits may be something I'll definitely look forward to as the Smart Hub gets upgraded annually.

Converting to Samsung

In 2010 I purchased an 8000 series TV. I liked it so much I added a Samsung Blu-ray player. Since then I have remodeled my kitchen, and you guessed it I put in Samsung appliances.

My next purchase will be a Galaxy tablet and then I will replace my i phone with a Samsung model. Does it sound like I'm impressed with Samsung products?.........you bet I am.
