Looks quite nice. It says it's sold by Amazon but have you read the question and answers? Those answers aren't written by Amazon staff! :-)

I don't doubt it's sold directly from them but their description page is definitely lacking. I've emailed some clean-up changes that Amazon could apply to the page. :)

This seems to be an overlooked model as there aren't many online sellers or reviews of this TV from what I can see. The other models from this range (LB630V) are also not really sold anywhere so this might be aimed more at the European market.

The (LB650V) range looks to be more heavily promoted and stocked. Spec-wise the only difference I can see is that this TV lacks 3D and has the different stand design (2 legs).

EDIT: Should also mention that this TV dropped £30 in price since December 2 when it was £439.99 at Amazon.

Just a question not really to do with this deal but tv related. How do we have quad core smartphones but only dual core tv's? Menu response time on a tv is a huge deal for me when buying new ones but even the 2014 models slow down sometimes. Surely Samsung, making their own phone chips as they do, could chuck one in from the mobile department?

Good question. Samsung does do TVs with quad core processors for smoother UI browsing and processing. Probably also helps with higher Hz displays and 3D.
E.g. http://www.samsung.com/uk/consumer/tv-audio-video/televisions/flat-tvs/UE48H6400AKXXU which is currently on a deal here http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/samsung-ue48h6400-smart-active-3d-48-led-tv-inc-2x-glasses-549-99-was-699-currys-2052344

ah ok thanks for that. This particular tv does seem to be the second best hd tv for 2014. First being the Sony KDL-W829. But seeing as that's closer to 1k this is roughly half with exactly the same picture quality and superior smart features.

Hmmm IPS display. Not great for viewing angles. Also the prevalent light bleed issues

What.? I thought IPS meant to improve viewing angle, no? At least my IPS monitor has far better viewing angle then my old TN.

No your thinking of VA panels, that's what your want for good angles and blacks.

@jeff I would highly recommend going to view this in a currys 1st before you buy. The picture quality is not great.

i may try and apply your logic next time i am shopping.

i will buy my weekly shop and pay what i expect rather than what the actual price is.

so can you show us where we can get the same spec tv with 3d for the above price

Lost all confidence in LG since my expensive 32" went down a couple a weeks back
The panels are good but the electronics on the MB's are s**te and they suffer from powerpack issues aswell

Staying away from the branded TV's from now on, had too many go down!

More cores do not equal smoother experience by default. More cores = oppertunity to do more things at the same time but you have to be really clever. Especially when it comes to ui, you could be running code on one core to handle the left side and another the right but its bloody difficult to do. Then on top of this cores are for processing power but you talking about ui which is the graphics part and is seperate

Actually, IPS panels have wider viewing angles than VA (definitely wider than TN panels), but yes VA will probably have superior black levels. Not many 47" VA TVs from what I can see except for some Panasonic screens. Found a few 42" VA TVs for around £399.

What is the actual framerate of the screen? Is it the stated 100Hz or a 50Hz screen which says 100Hz?

Please enlighten me why VA has better viewing angle than IPS (yes VA has better black).

Taken from tftcentral: (http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/panel_technologies.htm)

"VA technology was first developed by Fujitsu in 1996. However the limited viewing angles were its main disadvantage, and so further investment focused on addressing this problem. It was eventually solved by dividing each pixel into domains which worked synchronously. This lead the birth of the following technologies: ...................."

"IPS matrices differ from TN Film panels not only in the structure of the crystals, but also in the placement of the electrodes – both electrodes are on one wafer and take more space than electrodes of TN matrices. This leads to a lower contrast and brightness of the matrix. IPS was adopted for colour professional displays due to its wide viewing angles, good colour reproduction and stable image quality. However, response times were very slow originally, making IPS unsuitable for dynamic content."

The best viewing angle a VA a variant (MVA) could achieve is 178/178 ("somewhat unrealistic considering contrast shifts and off-centre contrast issue") while most IPS can achieve that (mostly realistic).

I got a similar TV from Richer Sounds a few weeks ago for £500. 47LA640v. I'm very impressed with it, and I reckon I got that for a good price, considering the 5 yr warranty.

The difference to this TV - as far as I can tell - is this has the newer Smart platform (webOS) but no 3D. So in my opinion the price at some £90 cheaper has got to be HOT.

I've struggled to find whether the 100Hz is the actual refresh rate or the manufacturers nonsense http://www.rtings.com/info/fake-refresh-rates-samsung-clear-motion-rate-vs-sony-motionflow-vs-lg-trumotion

In that case I think the true refresh rate is 50Hz.

I have the 42" 3d version and the web os suffers from massive slow down if the tv isn't interacted with for more than half an hour... you often have to turn it off and back on just to change the volume level...

Im looking to get a new tv and will be doing a lot of gaming on it. Will there be a real difference between 50hz and 100hz refresh rates?

I've seen reports of this but it looks to be the minority of owners are affected and can be model dependent.

Was it like this out of the box, or did a software update do this?

The input lag i.e. response time (measured in milliseconds) is what you want to be looking at for a gaming TV. There is a database of all TV's here http://www.displaylag.com/display-database/ . Sony's are typically the best for gaming. I can't find the response time for the LB630V though the 47LB6300 has a 28ms response time which is excellent.

I don't know of any cheap 'true' 100Hz TV's in this price bracket and size (sub £450), and it's not a killer (or must have) feature compared to something such as Full HD or maybe 3D. If you need it then check this link from earlier: http://www.rtings.com/info/fake-refresh-rates-samsung-clear-motion-rate-vs-sony-motionflow-vs-lg-trumotion and then buy one of the Samsung TV's on offer that are nearer to the £500 mark as they list 200Hz CMR which comes to 100Hz true refresh rate.

My apologies I was thinking of the MVA with the 178.

Thanks for clearing that up!

Bought one from Argos 2 hours ago. Decent picture quality. Not for the picky ones. Not got the to get into the settings yet.
#32
Price went back up at Argos to £459.99 so Amazon remains the cheapest way to get the TV.
#33
Despite being on Amazon Prime, they will only give me a vague estimate that the tv will arrive some time this week, which isn't very useful when I'd need to arrange time off work to be at home to receive it. That's kind of putting me off the purchase at the moment - I'd reserved it at Argos to pick it up today when they put the price up before I collected it.

Just got my TV delivered from Amazon. A few points to be aware of:

Euro Model: Means they only supplied the Euro plug annoyingly. Had to buy a UK adapter

Display: Hi fidelity display with excellent viewing angles. No change in colour/contrast at wide angles. Definitely needs you to run through the excellent display wizard to tweak the settings though. Blindingly bright out of the box at 100 contrast.

Sound: if you are coming to this from an older LCD or Plasma (mine is 7 years old) the sound tinnier as the speakers are smaller. lacks bass. Needs a soundbar or surround system or you may be disappointed.

Updates: 800MB software update for the UI was needed as it was months out of date.

UI: Live interface is decently smooth. No slowdown after 6 hours of messing around and using all the live features and HDMI sources. Some delay when switching on and trying to switch immediately to a different source (3-4 seconds), definitely not a deal breaker for me, and didn't always happen. Very android-like, in that you may have to remember to close open apps that could cause slowdown.

Hz: Could do 50 and 60Hz without any noticeable lag/frame dropping so may not be as critical an issue as previously thought?

Very happy with this. Main smart apps are well done (Youtube, netflix, etc.)
Definitely annoyed about the plug adapter though! Be aware of this.

Bought from Argos when discounted to £419. So far very impressed with the picture quality and the ease of set up. Not so impressed with the sound quality a sound bar is definitely required.

For the price you really cannot go wrong.

Amazon said this would be delivered today, but the order tracking page currently still says it's in a depot in Belgium. The delivery date still says today though - is this normal? Can I expect it to arrive?
#39
Deal expired.

I had shipping issues where the Citylink tracking page had the previous day down as shipping even though it had only just gotten to the depot the day after. Think they've taken longer than usual to collect the stock but still eventually received mine. If unsure try calling Amazon's dedicated delivery number and either say 'No' to everything and wait, or see if it auto-forwards you:
