Found 6th Feb
Asda in Llandudno have three on the shelf. Steal of a price. Should be 230 odd and can't see much better than that online. Full HD with a decent brand at this price is amazing.

For balance had a couple dodgy Sony's, swapped for a lovely curved Samsung, love it and find Samsung's smart OS to have all the apps whilst being way better/faster/easier than Sony's Android TV rubbish. Big android fan too.
Any idea of it has smart features like Netflix and YouTube ?

I don't think so, you'd need to go up to the M55/M56 model to get that sort of thing.
Just the right size for the loo!

Four Samsung’s in our house in laws with 4, friends with them and no issues at all. Bet that stops tomorrow though.

Fire tv stick or a cheap android box will add smart features for not much extra.

I've had a 32 inch Samsung LCD since 2007 still going strong, a Samsung 32 inch 1080p smart LED since 2015 and a Samsung 50 inch smart 4k for the past 5 months. Samsung has never let me down. The OS on Samsung smart TVs is extremely smooth. Wifi works perfectly even better than my dads top of the range sony 55inch smart tv.

Buy 4k now. These are reduced for a good reason . £179 in the drain.

Err no, 4k at 32" is pointless unless you sit with your nose up to it.
We all fall in 4K trap ...reality ,there is still hardly any 4K mainstream content.
For the money ...cracking deal

Did you think the same when laserdisc, hi8, svhs, minidisc and 3d TVs came out.
No doubt a few years ago you would have been telling people they were the future.
Then looking like an idiot.....

I'm the last person to want to back up Surrey Samuel but I do think 4K has already gone way past the mark any of those other previous technology products/platforms you've mentioned there ever reached.

Too many global giants from content creators/distributors like say Netflix, Disney, even licence fee squandering Auntie over here to all the electronic manufacturers a la Sony, Lucky Goldstar, Samsung etc have invested way too heavily in 4K UHD for it not to be the standard platform for the rest of this decade and most likely the first half of the next one too.

And to be honest I would say 4K is already at the point where it is the present rather than the future so on this occasion he ain't going to end up looking a dinlow.

So the average person who is plugged into their local transmitter through a rooftop ariel (and happy with it) is going to get 4k at what point in the future.
How old is this or any other TV they are buying now going to be.
Just seems like telling someone to get a Europe wide travel pass to go to their local village in case they change their plans in 5-10 years time.
Remember this is 32"

No idea why you seem to be having a pop at me for pointing out what most see as the obvious when it comes to 4K currently and for the foreseeable future.

Ironic you mention Europe because I not got any access to future plans about what will happen with the UK transmitters but having lived abroad I wonder how long that method will continue to be cost effective and thus employed over here.

Like I can assure you that even 'freeview' 'terrestrial' or whatever one wishes to call the bog standard state sponsored broadcasters only come through satellite or cable because there is no old school roof aerial transmissions in many countries any more. And I'm not just talking your Austria's and Switzerland's but also ones to the east who are far less affluent and supposedly technologically inferior to us.

As for lobbing the this is only a 32" at me I don't even remember bringing its size in to it. Granted it's as good as a portable nowadays thus serves little purpose to anyone apart from perhaps a kid's bedroom telly but why pipe up about it being so small? Granted tellies that size are 4K insignificant but I don't think television sets being 32" or 320" comes in to what platform we will watch content on in the future, it's down to the industry as a whole.

Finally you're the one digging out Surrey Samuel about past technological advances that didn't quite make it yet you're coming across like someone defending black+white would have done when the relentless march of colour was very much underway about half a century ago.

Not for me to judge on what you want to resist and what you wish to embrace in the world of television content and broadcasting but I don't think you made a particularly coherent argument there.

I've reread the post and don't really see where you think I'm having a go.
Apologies if you feel that way.

That's over 7 years okay but if you shut those transmitters down making these people's roof aerials redundant like many other countries have done then they would have to shift from the said aerial to satellite cable or super fast broadband to access our state sponsored broadcaster and other free to air operators.

No need to apologise to me as I don't mind taking some seeing I dish plenty out I can't and won't speak for him but do feel we as a nation need to get in to the 21st century a bit when it comes to broadcasting so I feel everyone should be pushed forward a bit.....the broadcasters and the viewers.

Keeping in mind this is a 170 quid Samsung, I bought a 32 inch JVC last year for less than 150 and a 40inch sharp a few months ago for 170, I couldn't have got 4k for that.
I'm not saying it isn't the future, but for a lot of people in the UK buying a TV now for what they may feed into it in 5+ years time is a false economy.
Who knows where technology will be in 5 years but I wouldn't like to be banking on any TV I bought now lasting more than 5 years even if it's not obsolete.

Edit, just to add on your last point, I remember thinking we should move forward with technology when I was installing sky dishes 30 years ago, yet we still have people with just terrestrial.

If you were installing Sky dishes 30 years ago(even though as far as I can remember it was late 89 them ghastly Amstard Fidelity things started appearing above people's front doors) why are you passionate about two bob cheap n nasty television sets?

I acknowledge I'll upset many people by being so frank calling them that but cheap tut is cheap tut, that's why they're cheap tut I would suggest

Sharp have been pony for way over a decade now maybe even two and the brand name of the firm that used to sponsor the goons was bought up by the new Ottoman Empire(Beko) years ago as far as I am aware so they don't even exist, you got yourself a 32" Beko there mate

I know it's controversial but people that only have terrestial when they've been able location wise to have had satellite or cable or both yet haven't deserve to lose the option of roof aerial television anyway.

I am not saying everyone should be active subscribers to any pay TV alone let alone shell out for the premium sports and movies side of it but if you've never took the plunge to at least try one of these new television providers at some point in the 20 years plus they've been available 'mainstream' thus acquiring the dish/connection required for when those huge 200 foot high transmitters in the sticks finally get shut down you will have relinquished your right to view television in the 21st century anyway.

You buy your home for 5 years or more usually, you tend to buy brand new cars to see you through a good few years so why wouldn't you buy a telly that will see you through for the foreseeable future too?

I appreciate the argument you're making for those that ain't got a pot to pxxx in as such but the vast majority of us aren't living in Dickensian poverty nowadays so it's not feeling that relevant to me, sorry.

I tried to sell people NEC (I had the NEC with built in video recorder at the time) which were far and away better but the majority wanted amstrad. I remember at the time I bought a £800 sony tv (nicam) a few years I bought a thomson tv (surround sound) about the same price. Maybe times and priorities change I had the svhs videos recorders and cameras, I had the hi8, now I'm not so bothered paying top dollar for stuff. I guess it's horses for courses and a massive amount of people will not adopt new technology until it's forced on them.

We don't have widespread 1080p transmissions even today so the only way 4k is going to significantly spread is through IPTV (broadcast streams are already bandwidth limited vs cost). Until there's more content that can be streamed in 4k it's real potential is limited to 4k Blurays which is a tiny tiny market. Even If it all goes IPTV within a couple of years there will still be a 1080p stream as not everyone can pull down 4k at decent bit rates. Given that most broadcasts today and the next few years will likely stay the same(720p, 1080i), up scaling to 1080p will result in a better picture compared to up scaling to a 4k.

For a 50"+ screen it's a different conversation but the whole 4k in smaller panels is just a way of making Joe public think he or she's going to get a better picture when in reality they'll be watching mostly up to FHD feeds for the foreseeable future.

But isn't that why Sky are trying to get people to stream/download as much of their content as possible when it comes to 4K broadcasting?

Aren't Netflix and Amazon streaming in proper 4K too?

You don't have to tell me about diddy little tellies not doing proper 4K, that's why we got a 65 inch 10bit for the front room last year and am waiting for a bit more of a price drop on the QE55Q7 or Q8 for our bedroom
