First post so go easy on me!

Goto deal and it'll be £799. uncheck scart lead and add tv to basket.

Add price match code: 951546TVG

Then add code: yaw690 for a further 5% off.

Delivery is free and the final price ends up at £693.49 WITHOUT quidco so don't forget to add it.

I'm no expert but this seems a brilliant deal to me for a 40" with freeview, brand name too.. I'm very tempted to use my flexible friend and go for it!

First post again so go easy on me!

its the cheapest ive seen



Yup! Great price.

I paid £899.99 for this TV on Boxing Day and thought that was cheap. Wish I'd waited now.

HOT HOT HOT!

bought this tv from currys for £712 2 weeks ago, absolutely brilliant, always have friends round and everyone thinks its great mostly 'damn wish i'd bought that one' proof is in the pudding, great value TV froma premium brand,

oh one failing, the sound aint that great due to the ultra clean design, but most people I guess would plug it through a surround set up anyway, for everyday it sounds fine, but movies and games it is lacking somewhat

Thats one thing i'm wondering about. I'd be pushing the boat out to buy it, even at this price. Then i'd have to fork out for a sound system. Anyone got any idea's of a good cheap sound system to go with this tv?

I was looking at this deal but maybe its just me, i don't like dealing with empire.

I cleared off my empire account and won't be touching them again.

3 year warrenty is great though, it did tempt me.

I agree. got that exact one.

sound is very poor.

great set... 1080p and 3xHDMI is rare in a brand name at this price.

Great find - voted hot..

One word of caution...As mentioned by other members, if you are not planning to hook up some sort of surround sound, id definatley pop down to your local retailers to check it out..
I had the same set but returned it to costco because the sound was so low..For normal viewing i had it turned up approx 80% (i don't have surround sound)..I think they compromised the sound/speakers for stylish looks/quality..
Otherwise an excellent choice with an excellent picture!

BTW they are £740 in costco with a 3 year warranty (which is the best in the business)

I would hope anyone who was gonna splash out this much for a telly of this kind would care enough to also buy a decent sound system anyway.

we don't have any costco stores in northern ireland i don't think. Do they deal online?

The R74BDX, or R73BDX which is exclusive to Currys/Dixons online is well worth the cash for picture quality for 32 - 40 inch. It is only 720p/1080i though.

Would like a few other posts recommend a home cinema system (£50 +) with audio leads for TV, and optical cable for gaming (+ £10). The Samsung HTQX100 will blow your house down, or you flat neighbours out, and suits the set very nicely. :thumbsup:

Try Tribal UK, they usually do price match for online deals and are normally cheap anyway.

Grimmie

And the HTQX100 won best surround system in this months what hifi mag...

Sorry, HTXQ100 - the 5.1 is very crisp!

Mikey, it should do too.

I've had it up to the max of 50, on custom settings for the bass and fronts - no distortion at all - apart from the bannisters and downstairs light humming!

Only once mind!

:-D

great price

Worthwhile bearing in mind that the newer samsung R8 models have recently been released. Link to the 40" version below.

Bought this tv from dixons online for 750 ish using a £30 off dixons voucher, best looking tv out there and mouth watering when u link up ur xbox 360 through the HD. Again sound isnt great but i use my seperate surround sound so not an issue. Only one HDMI socket too. HOT HOT HOT :thumbsup:

The sound it produces is fantastic.

1080p???

1366x768 = 720p

Says it comes with a stand also. Is this correct or a misprint?

its not a misprint
its the little stand you see in the photo

I think that offer has ended...just tried it and price match code isn't working:oops:

I looked at this the other day, and it looks very cool.....but...

I have a wall bracket fixed from my recently died Philips P42" plasma, which has been returned for a refund.

I therefore would prefer a TV that my bracket would fit. I think its VESA 800x400 baracket but is adjustable.

If the Samsung can be wall mounted using my existing bracket, I will get one, otherwise it's the Philips 37"LCD from Currys for £700 (less 5% NHS code and 3% Quidco)

Anyone any thoughts?
