If you're not fussy about it only having 2 HDMI slots and no VGA then this seems to be quite a decent set for £299. No reviews on the web though.

Enhance your home-viewing pleasure with the Samsung UE40H5030 40" HD TV. Boasting a huge LED backlit screen plus full HD support, this television brings all the magic of the cinema into your living room.

The LED backlighting on the Samsung UE40H5030 40" TV produces sharper images with fantastic colour and clarity. LED screens also consume less power and are more compact than their LCD counterparts. Samsung also uses Wide Colour Enhancer Plus to drastically improve the quality of any image and uncovers hidden details. Combine this with 1080p, crystal clear high definition and you have an experience to even rival that of your home multiplex.

Choose from an array of entertainment channels with the H5030's built-in Freeview HD tuner that gives you access to the UK's favourite TV channels in glorious detail and sumptuous colour. The Freeview tuner also offers full reign on a wide range of radio stations and features an electronic programme guide for you to plan your weeks viewing.

The UE40H5030 supports USB connectivity with ConnectShare that enables you to enjoy a wide range of multimedia content including movies, photos and music, all on the big screen. The Samsung HD TV also supports HDMI connectivity, providing the high-speed transmission of high definition digital data from multiple devices, straight to your TV.

According to the specs this has no Smart/internet or wifi functionality

5000 is the series, not the date

U = LED
E = Europe
H = 2014
5030 = Model No.

I wouldn't be at all surprised it it isn't just 50Hz x2.

Good deal anyway.

I have the EH5000, its a great tv for the price

How sure are we that this isn't some special edition made on the cheap? For some reason it's not normally available in the English speaking world.
#12
They also have the 48" version for £399 :-)
#13
Googling this turns up precious little info - whats the difference between this and the EH5000 and why is it only available in Europe? Even Samsungs site has precious little info. Apart from that sounds like a good deal.

I don't see any reason to suspect that, I think it's just because its a new model there's very little info on it.

My (stupid) theory is that it's cheap at the moment so Tesco can flog a few units and then raise the price after people leave a couple of, hopefully positive, reviews.

Mines due to arrive on Saturday (maybe tomorrow all being well) so I'll let you all know what I think.

It's been available in eastern europe for a while. I suspect it's more likely to be end of line overstock bought up from Samsung on the cheap.

I think this is Clear Motion Rate 100 (50Hz + extras) not full 100Hz.

Samsung usually class full 100 Hz as CMR 200.
#17
If you have an extra £100 to spend, this is a cracker! -

Smart, WiFi, 400Hz, passive 3D (works well, and cheap extra glasses), and looks great too.

If not, this Sammy is still rather nice for the money.

I have just compared this TV to the UE40H5000 series TV that we have in the UK, and it is exactly the same but for one thing: the DTV Tuner is DVB-TC compared to DVB-T2C. According to Wikipedia, we use DTV-T for SD content and DTV-T2 for HD content. As long as someone can confirm that this TV can handle UK HD broadcast channels, then it is an absolute bargain!

Here are the two TV's taken from the Samsung website.
The UE40H5030 is a Slovenian TV:

And the UE40H5000 is a UK TV:
http://www.samsung.com/uk/consumer/tv-audio-video/televisions/flat-tvs/UE40H5000AKXXU

You can compare the specs and check (you may need a translate tool for your internet browser :p)

Gah, looking around and it seems you're right. Disappointing, but I'm on a budget so it's not the end of the world. I've updated the description so people are aware.

Nice. It's Freeview HD, so it can definitely handle HD channels. Outside of that the only additional difference I can see is small change in the design (chopped off the small lip in the middle with the badge).

Nice deal ! If you want internet/smart features you can buy a Sony BDPS3100 or similar (I am using it for netflix, USB, DVD, Blu-Ray and works great)
#21
Does anyone know if this can loop pictures from a USB?
#22
tempted by this, is this available in store?

Collected mine today. Had a brief play around it with it - it's brilliant.

It's thin and looks fantastic, the picture quality is ace, the EPG and menus are slick, and most surprising of all is the sound which is very, very good. It's not tinny and has good bass. I couldn't be happier with it.

how is it

The quality is excellent. Played around on the HD channels, a BluRay and PS4, all looked great. It will take a lot of tinkering with he display settings to get it perfect though (I still haven't found the sweet spot). I really can't stress how good this set is.

Here are some quickly put together photos.

It's thinner than I was expecting.

Picture in Picture is nifty for the World Cup. You can choose various sizes and positions for the small window.

Standard HD channel.

The guide is nice, pretty much what you would expect. I set a reminder for the Simpsons, switched to the PS4 and it still popped up with a reminder when it was about to start. The EPG guide and software is very polished.

Another angle.

As I said before, the sound is good as well, you shouldn't be needing a sound bar.

Scroll through the picture settings until you see "PIP" and it'll display a menu with all the options. It only works when you're viewing an external source though (BluRay player, SKY, games console).

Yikes, that's quite a hike. £299 was a bargain but at £499 you could easily get a better TV.

Tempted to buy this but not seeing any reviews anywhere is really putting me off.

When setting up my UE40H5030 set I was asked to choose a network for the TV.

I chould choose from "wireless" or "no network".

When I tried to choose wireless it said that there was none available, and I could not proceed.

I assume that in order to have wireless internet through the TV I would need to buy the USB wireless LAN adaptor.

I can't seem to find any suggestions online though that this Samsung USB wireless LAN adaptor would actually work with this TV though, as it is not a smart TV.

I am thinking that the LAN adaptor might work because as I said, I was offered the option in the menu. Is this just a standrd option which Samsung have neglected to remove from the setup phase, or does anyone have grounds to think that the wireless LAN adaptor could work?

Your thoughts please!
#38
Although I haven't tested it, I think it's just an option that they didn't bother to remove from the firmware. Would it not be a bit pointless anyway? There's no apps or anything on the TV to use even if you got it connected to the internet.
#39
i was thinking that if you could connect the adaptor then the tv might appear on the local network within the house, so that you could share files wirelessly with the tv instead of first transferring movies etc to a usb and then constantly plugging and unplugging it

i have just ordered a lenovo yoga ultrabook/tablet which i intend to link up to the tv with a long hdmi cable so that you can plug it in as you sit by the sofa thus turning the tv into a kind of smart tv.

i think that this will.work nicely but it would be nocer if it was wireless.
#40
On my Samsung TV, there is an option to update the firmware of the TV over the Internet. So I assume it is just for that, and not for the smart features as that has a separate button on the remote to access all the apps
