Samsung 37" Digital HD Ready LCD TV LE37R88BD £575 instead of £749 £574.99

Tried to buy a LG 37" 37LC46 for £499 but all out of stock. Went to Currys and spotted similar spec TV by Samsung but it was £749. Dixons sell the LG 37LC46 model, which is the same TV as the 37LC5…

Dixons sell the LG 37LC46 model, which is the same TV as the 37LC55, just an exclusive model number to Pixmania, Dixons & Currys (all part of the DSG Group). The minor difference is that the cabinet is completely black on 55 model.

Currys sell the Samsung LE37R88BD, which is the same TV as the LE37R87BDX, just an exclusive model number to Dixons & Currys.

If you follow the link it will take you to Dixons site where the Samsung is priced at £599.

Use the coupon "SAVE25" during checkout to reduce the price to £574.99. This includes FREE delivery to UK and N.Ireland. I ordered mine on Tuesday and received it on Saturday.

Fantastic TV!

SAVE NEARLY £200

Welcome to HUKD pom2!

Good deal.

EDIT - What am I saying welcome for! You've been here a year and a half longer than me!!! Nice first post though.
#8
good value! Blu Ray films would look amazing on this 37" !!!
[helper]#9
Don't feel you have to rush to get this tv for this price. There are 3 or 4 other sites that do this tv for around the same price - TribalUK, AJ Electronics, 247 Electrical...all under £580 and all are listed on Quidco although about 1% less than Dixons.
#10
Excellent HOT deal and excellent TV!! if only I'd have waited 3 months I'd have saved £140 on the price of mine..mind u I'd have missed 3 months of great viewing!

Can't fault this set one little bit, rep added.
#11
I ordered this TV a couple of weeks ago for my parents for 575 delivered. An excellent price for a nice TV! :-D
The standard price on Dixons website is 599 and I used the same discount code that was posted (I think it's a Quidco discount code from memory)
#12
Not that good imo, much better tv's have been posted on here.

why voted cold


Think people go around voting deals cold even if it is a fantastic deal, have seen many people vote deals cold when first posted, then later. They reach over 500 degrees.

You must have tested loads of 37" TV's from your reply I guess then?...if so, what's not that good about his set in your opinion then?...like I've stated for me this is a great TV in my opinion and made better by these prices...I've been 'through' a few large screen set's prior too (and returned them!).

I'm sure this will fall sub £500 in maybe 6 months and will be an even hotter deal but from what I've seen nothing comes close to this set (size wise) for picture quality in both freeview terms or anything I've plugged into it...PC, DVD, HDDVD, Xbox 360 etc...only slight downside to the 'new' Sammy's is an average sound stage but as most peeps (?) use external sound sources it's a non issue really...picture wise & for the price, they kick ass.

But that's only my opinion.

well dont buy the TV unless u have the cash lol :P put it on ur egg and pay it off at the end of the month .

why buy somin if ya cant afford it :P
#19
Its been around this price for a while and can be had cheaper. Not a Hot Deal IMO. Also for the extra couple hundred quid the M series is a much better buy.
#20
I've got this TV, and I think it's brilliant. Especially when I compare it to other peoples Panasonics and Phillips, I much prefer my set.

I have to agree on the sound, as the speaker is at the back on this set, as to make it look a little bit more sleek without having speakers poking out the front or sides. You really do need an external source if it's to be the main TV.
#21
right i've been trying to decide on a lcd for nearly a year now and i think this is the one for me ok i know its not 1080p but it should be fine for my 360 and my sky+ the thing is play has almost identical deal was wondering who would be the best to go with regarding quidco and return policys ect.thanks for any advice given
a few peeps have mentioned the speakers are a bit of a let down can anyone recomend a souround system posibly with an upscaling doovd player
banned#22
i have just got this from a mate that works in the factory for 517.00 nice tele!
#23
Nice find & great tv!

One problem - I had three faulty ones of these and in the end got sick of it!

Currys who I bought it from ended up sending me the 40" version FOC and gave me another £40 off!

All in it cost me around £560!

resolution 1366 x 768. not 1080p. good price tho

True - but will do 1080i
#25
These are 444 EUR (310 GBP) in Holland (MediaMarkt), so I'd expect that'll be on some kind of discount in the UK soon.

Whats SD like on it? Freeview etc?
#27
The 32" version can be bought for around £450 too after all the usual deductions.

I bought mine 14 days ago, but still not got it even though it's "in stock". Dixons haven't updated my order status since the 3rd October, and I've emailed their customer services twice, but without any response.

For now I just want to get the tv, but I'm not so sure if I'd use Dixons again.

It doesn't.

It doesn't.


1080i = 720p, which this set is capable of, as otherwise they couldn't have the HD Ready logo on the set.

It doesn't.


Rubbish, this set will do 1080i
#32
Thought I'd mention that the 87BD is the exact same screen, Dixons group just struck a deal with Samsung (or vica-versa) to have a different model number and make it look like it was a later model (by the higher number = newer principle). If you don't believe me, look at the specs!

The 87BD can be had for £568 delivered here

Personally, I'd rather have a longer warranty than 1-yea and not have to pay through the nose for it from Dixons.

No, it won't. You've got not clue about TVs if you think it does.

1080i = 720p, which this set is capable of, as otherwise they couldn't have the HD Ready logo on the set.

Put a 1080i source through it, then load up the resolution info. panel on the TV.

What resolution is the TV displaying?
#34
lol, this set won't do 1080i?? Why do you bother posting such ****? Do some research please before you post those kind of comments.

And before you say it, yes I do own this tv, and I have a feeling you have absolutely no idea what 1080i actually means and you are thinking about 1080p, which you are correct, this tv does not do
#35
I think dbailey and the others that agree with him are correct. The tv onl does 720p and will not do 1080p although it will do 1080i which as I understand it isn't alot different to 720p. I assume the only difference is that 1080i will accept a 1080 signal and downsize it to fit whereas a 720p one wouldn't? Can someone elaborate???

You answer in FULL..... http://www.cnet.com/4520-7874_1-5137915-1.html

[SIZE=3][COLOR=#333333]HDTV source resolutions[/COLOR][/SIZE][SIZE=3][COLOR=#333333]
[/COLOR][/SIZE]There are two main HD resolutions in use today by HD broadcasters and other sources: 1080i and 720p. One is not necessarily better than the other; 1080i has more lines and pixels, but 720p is a progressive-scan format that should deliver a smoother image that stays sharper during motion. Another format is also becoming better known: 1080p, which combines the superior resolution of 1080i with the progressive-scan smoothness of 720p. True 1080p content is extremely scarce, however, and none of the major networks have announced 1080p broadcasts. The term 1080p today appears mostly in reference to the displays' native resolution, not the source.

Despite the obvious difference in pixel count, 720p and 1080i both look great. In fact, unless you have a very large television and excellent source material, you'll have a hard time telling the difference between any of the HDTV resolutions. It's especially difficult to tell the difference between 1080i and 1080p sources. The difference between DVD and HDTV should be visible on most HDTVs, but especially on smaller sets, it's not nearly as drastic as the difference between standard TV and HDTV.
#37
It can display 1080i sources, but they'll be downscaled to 720. The panel's horizontal resolution isn't 1080 so you can't possibly see that resolution. With an TrueHD panel (1080P) which has the full resolution, you'll see the entire 1080i image.
#38
Just so people know (if they don't already): DSG and others have these "special models" or "exclusive models" which are blatantly the same as others, for one reason: they don't have to price match. Be careful - you might sometimes find that they will price match a regular model and it works out cheaper.

This means that when DSG offer to price match to an online retailer, they know they will never have to, as the other retailers tend to have different variations on that model.

I worked at DSG a few years ago and they did this a lot between Currys, PCW, Dixons and the Link with phones, cameras and PCs.
#39
If this is the same as the LE37R87BDX then I can vouch for it being a great telly having bought one 4 weeks ago!

I watch it from about 10ft away using a standard definition input (Sky+) & the picture looks great.

heres a review:

By the way I wangled it from John Lewis with a 5 year warranty for £599 - happy days :thumbsup:
#40
Thanks for that Herby, some great info there! Just so I can be sure this has actually got 1080i therefore 1080 vertical lines/pixels? So if running a 1080i screen as a pc what's the highest resolution you can display natively?
