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.

Full HD 3D

Full HD 3D
Full HD 1080p 2D displays launched many years ago. Now, it’s difficult to find a big screen Television that does not have Full HD 1080p resolution. Why was Full HD 1080p so important on 2D displays? Full HD 1080p offered more than two times the detail than non-Full HD panels. The more detail in the image the more realistic the image looks. The benefits of Full HD 3D works on the same principle, the more detail in the image the more realistic the experience. Viewing Full HD 3D can only be achieved using Active 3D shutter glasses technology. Samsung is the global leader in 3D display sales, and is using the highest quality 3D imaging technology available today. You will be completely immersed in a new world of TV viewing reality watching 3D content on Samsung Full HD 3DTV.

This is an Amazing TV!

This is our third Samsung TV and as always has not let us down. This one is our favourite so far!!! The clarity as well as colour is amazing. The 3Disnt used as often as regular, however, when we do, its a great experience! The extra features, for online usage etc.

are great. The ports are very handy. My photo albums are absolutely beautiful on full screen!! Its so much easier to view with company etc, versus all gathering around the computor desk in the spare room. I cant think of a negative thing pertaining to this TV. I would totally recomend it to any one interested!!

Great Plasma TV

About everything on this product is good; internet connectivity, picture quality, user interface design... my ONLY little complaint is that the screen is a bit too reflective; you have to be careful with the ambient light to make sure the screen doesn't act like a mirror.

But it's a pretty minor detail. Would buy 20 of those... if I needed them! :)

Great TV

After looking at many TV's I chose a Samsung 3D Plasma for the incredible picture clarity and no blur motion. I am totally satisfied and I am sure for the money there was not a better TV on the market.

The 2D picture is excellent and the 3D is better than in the theater. I looked at LED's and LCD's and they didn't compare.
