Newer TVs out there now but if you are not bothered about 'smart' TVs, led etc, that seems a fine price for a pretty decent TV.
Edited by: "mac_d" 8th Jun 2012

Are reviews good I'm very interested

Seems good to me

For once an Argos deal that has the item in stock! Heat added, car picked up.

Not sure about reviews, those on Testfreaks just seem to be from Argos customers, and there doesn't seem to be any actual review sites with information on this TV.

Even on AVForums I can only see feedback about the 32" & 40" versions. There's always a lot of chat about how what panel you get makes a huge difference and the different sizes usually have different panels....

For what it's worth, a couple of the posts about the 40" are here, and here, plus the 32" here.

looks a pretty good deal

Does this tv receive Freeview HD TV stations?

The specification states it has "Integrated Freeview HD digital tuner".

I wasn't sure if that's what it meant.

Thanks

I'm not sure how they could make it much clearer.

Wish Dooper was here to point out what's wrong with such a decent seeming deal.

I have this TV in 37" and can say it is great. I had a Panasonic TX37E30B 37" LED before this for a fortnight, but the backlight bleed was horrendous, and it went back, and it cost twice as much as this TV cost me. This TV is well worth £299, a bargain in my opinion.
I wouldn't take too much notice of the people waffling on about panel types on new and old models. This TV is more than a match for the C series that preceeded it.

Here's a link to Samsung UK for the set:
samsung.com/uk/…XXU

Although there is an Ethernet port and 'Allshare' WiFi capability it seems that is limited to file sharing (ie the digital films/music off network devices in the household, + USB sticks) and software updates from comments - ie no "online" capability, no Apps, no Internet, no catch-up etc.

Reviews at Amazon are good - Link.

They are for most tvs though so not worth much.

The 37" hasn't been properly reviewed. The 32" has been...

which.co.uk/tec…ew/

Score 62% (4% short of 'Best Buy' status... highest scoring TV... Samsung UE55D8000... only got 76%)

Pros: Great HD pictures and good SD image quality, excellent connectivity, network streaming

Cons: Minor usability issues, less impressive sound

37" generally don't do quite as well as their 32" or 40" equivalents in tests (except for Panasonics), however, I think this 37" would get a decent review.

The LExxD580 is a little disappointing, as Samsung downgraded picture quality by using a cheaper Processor than the preceding model. The LExxC580 received better reviews, e.g...

hdtvtest.co.uk/new…htmVerdict 'Highly Recommended'

Getting back to this deal, I don't know of a better 37" deal currently available for £300. Good specification, good price, good deal.

Are there any Argos promo codes which can be applied to this deal?

Thanks Dooper

I have had this TV for about 6 months... Gaming, blu rays and sky HD all look amazing. Speaker quality not bad but would benefit from running thru an a/v set up. More than happy with and a bargain in my eyes at this price.

All in all the only downside is the lack of Internet TV... samsung.com/uk/…wer

3.03% cashback through topcashback but it ends either today or tomorrow.

3.03% cashback through topcashback (expires in one day) but only for home delivery, NOT click & collect. Delivery is currently free for this tv.

Thanks OP, and thanks Dooper also !
Great find! Hotted

Looking at getting one of these and adding on a half-price stand worth over £50. Seem to be some decent ones there.

Seems the deal is a third off stands over £50.

Picked mine up from Lancaster - now watching Holland v Denmark in glorious HD - excellent TV, can't believe the price!

How does the Freeview HD work, just bought it and set it up (watching the football on bbc hd via sky hd). Don't see anything that makes it clear I'm on a hd channel when watching freeview. Picture is still good mind..

Channel name gives it away e.g. "BBC One HD" (channel 50)
If you hit the info button, it will show the signal resolution in the bar at the top (you should see 1080i for the HD channels)

I dont have a channel 50..is freeview hd available everywhere?

Ah...just checked. Not available in my area yet, estimated 26th September. No big deal though, at least its on the way.

Ordered one hopefully with 3% cashback, thanks OP.

Who needs a subscription to Which when you've got Dooper

If anyone wants a collection reservation # for Argos in Milton Keynes valid to close Monday (none available now, were 2 earlier, though still 3 down in Blotchley), just private msg me.
Had thought it w/be good for folk's bedroom but they are adamant happy with what they have (an old Dell 26" 720p).
MKD

i have the 40 inch version of this and have been very happy with it. £299.99 is a bargain

Cheers folks, got mine today about 3pm with a 1/3 off stand. Got it all up and running in time for the Holland Denmark game.
Wow...what a telly! Cant believe the price.
Now playing around with Allshare, which is very cool too.

You can also use an android phone as a remote control with the Samsung Remote app
(Assuming you have it connected to your network)

Collected from bexleyheath this afternoon excellent tv heat added

For anyone interested, I bought mine just under 2 year ago and very pleased with my purchase. Still as good today as the day I bought it, wouldn't swap it.

Eh? I'm sooo out of touch with what tv's can do now. Much easier when they were just a box in the corner incapable of doing more than showing 4 tv channels. (showing my age here)

Someone please enlighten me in words of one syllabub please. How the hell can you go online on your tv? What apps would you want. By catch-up do you mean IPlayer? I thought you just used a tv for watching tv? How retro of me...oO
