That's a Hull of a deal.

It is a good deal, but I think it's already been posted twice...
Sorry to dampen the flames

Whats the model number? Anyone know if they have any in Bamber Bridge, or the number to check?

Good Price.

Thanks

Great price. I'd better Hull my ass down there...

Can anyone confirm the quality of Samsung TVs. I know they are popular but they seem cheap (compared to Panasonic) and on eBay most of the HD TVs for sale are Samsungs labelled "for parts, not working" and only 12m old, which is really concerning!! oO

What resolution is Hull HD?

great price very tempted to grab one if available near me. thanks voted hot

We need model number

Didn't know Samsung were naming their TVs after British towns now.....

Any in stock in Kingston-upon-Full ??:D

I always thought Hull HD would produce cold colour pictures but apparently it's hotter than Jamaica.
(I'll grab my coat. The joke was better in my head when it first came to mind)

dont know about hull hd but is sommit about taking t'mick

"Hull HD"? You trawling for bad puns?

50hz that's just painful!

whoknew

50hz that's just painful!



For £299, well worth putting up with the pain!

Perfect for 2nd viewing room, dorm room, bedroom, conservortoy etc etc

Obviously the viewing angle and the blacks will be a bit naff compared to 400hz game playing TV, but fine for family PS / XBox / Wii fun :-)

I thought I was hullucinating when I first saw this deal..... oO

I have one myself and its been rock solid so far, its about 2 years old now, I got mine from John lewis with the 5 year warranty for piece of mind as I have heard a few horror stories, I would say Sony/Panasonic make some of the most reliable sets.

I think the issue is samsung covers all price ranges of the t.v market and obviously on the cheaper sets cheap parts have to be used.

100Hz is more painful.
In fact it is twice as many hurts.

Oh that's really very good indeed.

You can get a much better screen for another £50. 42", wifi, smart tv etc etc. There have been lots of really good tv deals around lately and the sales havent even started yet. I dont think this is that good based on price / size / quality. Havent voted.

Samsung is the only make I buy for tv's. In fact looking around the house most of my things seem to be samsung. Even my fridge freezer ha ha. I swear by them. Had my living room tv for 2 years and its just the same as when I took it out the box.
My mum has a panasonic which cost about the same as my samsung and to me my picture is much much better.
my tv isnt the one listed but samsung are quality IMO

Mine is 6 years old still going strong. Better than panasonic for sure.

Never been able to tell the difference between TV's with different hertz values.

I have one of these in the bedroom,
Really does struggle with only 50hz during any fast action / sports and gaming,
Would say avoid and get something more expensive for the lounge to avoid disappointment,
Still heat for the price

I have a ue40es5500 and I think it's great. It's 50Hz (100 CMR) and to be honest the motion blur thing is largely subjective and gimmicky. No manufacturer can claim to lessen motion blur by increasing refresh rates - it's also bound by a number of other factors like pixel colour overlap (time it takes for a pixel to change colour), none of which is controlled by refresh rate.

I do like Smart TV though - Sky won't let me have early series of Misfits or Live at the Apollo, but the Samsung apps go back a month or even longer for 4OD.

Still, hot from me because it costs less than size in inches multiplied by 8, which is good for a non-Smart, leading brand.

There was one left in Livingston just as you walked in the door, to the right, on a pallet with some Celcius branded TV`s.
Just encase it helps anyone.

Didn`t appear to be too slim in terms of depth, when I looked at the display one up the back of the shop though still a cracking buy.

i have owned 4 samsung tv's, and still have two ( only sold the others due to size upgrades) and touch wood they have been going strong since day 1, and not let me down (one is 7 years old LCD and still working perfectly)

great value, well worth getting one, especially if it has the new smart features

Two still on the shelf at Weston Super Mare earlier today at £299.

I would agree. I bought a 42inch Sony W6 for £499 at John Lewis recently with a 200mhz motion rate(or whatever Sony call their gimmick) and it isn't actually any better at handling motion than the £279 Samsung set which a friend of mine bought at Tesco last week.

Picked mine up from Morecambe last night and is up and running its a great TV

I've looked at this model in the past - I would recommend viewing it on display somewhere before you buy. Picture isn't that great and it's seriously chunky compared to more recent models.

This is an okay price, but over the next couple of weeks I'd expect that you could find a better spec 40" TV for around the same price (which is what I did last year - paid £330 for the super slim smart TV version).
