Samsung 22" smart wifi Tv with freeview HD tuner £169 at Richer Sounds and John Lewis, over £200 elsewhere

Found 6th Jan
I was looking for a small digital smart tv for our kitchen and found this one so I thought I'd share it with rest of you. It ticks all the boxes I want with wifi, freeview Hd, smart features etc. The reviews for it are very good from what I can see. It also appears to be around £40 cheaper than elsewhere (Amazon, Tesco etc) in both richer sounds and John Lewis.

Thanks

John Lewis one comes with a free 5 year guarantee

been this price for a few weeks now, tempted myself, would like to know if there is anything any better in a similar size

can't go wrong buying from Richer Sounds. heat added

I've got two of these. Very good TVs

They still make TVs at 22 inches? Lol

1080p at 22niches is totally unnecessary. SD resolution would be absolutely fine or at most 720p.

It happens, John Lewis one comes with a free 5 year guarantee. You may want to add that to the title. Makes a good deal even better.

​I have to disagree with you based on experience. I still have one of the first Sharp Aquos 22" flat panel TVs that were made and this is Standard Defenition quality. On programs where there is small writing on the screen, it's impossible to read it no matter what distance you are from the TV. So my counter argument is, that 1080p does make a dramatic difference even on a smaller screen.

You could get a 21"/24" monitor and a Roku stick for much less than this. You'd miss out on Freeview, but iPlayer, All4 etc give you live channels. My experience with "smart TVs", is that they have a narrower app range than Roku, Fire Stick, Apple TV so for example, you get no NowTV with this. After a year or so, the manufacturer abandons the platform meaning you need to replace the TV to stay up to date with new services. You'd be much better buying a dumb TV and a cheap external box that can be replaced every few years with a faster and more capable one

I was going to post the exact same thing.

well almost every single engineer - including myself and those that understand the below formula - would disagree with you. There is almost no value, none, in having a 1080p display on a 22inch tv if you are sitting more than 3 feet from the tv screen.

Viewing Distances Based on Visual Acuity
7.5 Feet Maximum Viewing Distance for NTSC/PAL(720x480/720x576)
3 Feet Maximum Viewing Distance for HDTV(Fully resolved 1080i; 1920 x 1080)

-Viewing Distances based on Visual Acuity: These distances are calculated based on the resolving power of the human eye (reference), or visual acuity. The human eye with 20/20 vision can detect or resolve details as small as 1/60th of a degree of arc. These distances represent the point beyond which some of the detail in the picture is no longer able to be resolved and "blends" with adjacent detail.

I'd say you want 720p on a 22" screen. 5' is a perfectly reasonable viewing distance in a small kitchen at which point SD falls apart, as GurneyFlap said. 1080p is not unreasonable, since you might want to connect a small compute stick to it and come in to 3' occasionally.

Also, remember that 20/20 is normal, not perfect vision. Following my LASIK, I have 20/16 vision in one eye and 20/12 in the other. Some people can resolve detail at a greater distance than others.

sure, if you are going to use it as a monitor then by all means get a 1080p screen as you'll be sitting 2 feet from it, equally if you aren't paying a premium that is great. Otherwise, its a waste of money if you have to pay for it.

£199.00 both places/ Expired?

Many kitchens are too small for a 50" model.

managed to get one from J Lewis last weekend. Everybody went out of stock previous week. Got email from JL last saturday and I ordered immediately. By monday when I collected, the shelf price was 199. Richer sounds even dearer and no stock.

Just buy a 4k monitor or 4k TV at this price . This one is too expensive due to poor resolution at this price point.

The smart features on the Samsung are good. If I remember correctly it has iPlayer, ITV player, C4 player, My5, netflix, youtube, I think AmazonTv as well.

No code required. I posted this nearly two weeks ago when it was £169. It must have just gone 'hot' today with rather unfortunate timing as it's now up to £199. Apologies to anyone who missed out.

These are decent TVs but a very old model (circa 2012) curry's have 24" Samsung smart TVs for less.

bought a smart lg 28 inch from amazon for 139.99 last week. still available for 180 odd

​No worries, I was just browsing on my phone, saw the deal, got a little excited and went straight to the deal website. Thanks for sharing/posting though.

How nice to see people actually being nice on here today - I love this site but never understood why so much pedantry and general trolling in so many thread ......

Lot of money for screen size unless you *really* need your TV to be smart - as others have said, cheaper ways to upgrade a "dumb TV". Last TV was a Samsung and wasn't at all impressed with quality or longevity though some seem better than others.

I have the 720 version of this. Awesome TV.
