The Samsung LE23R87BDX sports a brace of HDMIs, rather than the standard issue single input, which is a fast way into anyone's affections.
The Samsung also manages to pack all the other usual AV suspects (including component video and a brace of Scarts) into that compact chassis, making it one of the better connected sets in its class.
It's also one of the prettier efforts and once you've factored in a generally impressive picture, you're pretty much sold on the LE23RB7BDX.
Blacks are probably the best in this test, colours are convincingly natural or scorchingly vibrant as required and the high-definition performance is detailed and immersive. A class-leading mid-sized set.
