A 51" TV under £450 is pretty damn good! This TV was £549, then couple of days ago went down to £469 now £429!!!

Can't argue with the price (unless the whole plasma/LED/LCD thing rears it's head.... and it's too early for that guys, and it's almost the weekend.)


Product Description:

If you like sport or films, documentaries or soaps, this Samsung PS51E530 51" Full HD 1080p Plasma TV is an excellent entry into the world of high definition TV.
The Real Black on this TV reduces the on-screen glare caused by ambient light, so blacks and shadow details are as crisp and defined as possible. So with minimal reflection caused by the light conditions, images are clean, crisp and distraction-free.
Using the latest in subfield motion technology, Samsung Plasma TV flashes a single image up to 600 times a second. The result is smoother images with unprecedented picture quality, no matter how fast the images are moving. In short, if you love sport, you'll love this plasma TV.

Heat added although I'm not sure this has a Freeview HD tuner even though it says so on the Sainsburys website. Still looks a very good deal to me though.
I've just tried, and it seems ok:

It is a bug on their website, I had the same in FF and IE, - screen goes white and nothing happens.
Just place the cursor in the Qty field and press Enter instead, it will add it to the basket.
HTH

Why am I considering ordering one for my spare room?! oO
I just ordered one - the site is broken in firefox, I used chrome

You must have a large spare room to house a 50" TV

You only need 2 meters viewing distance for HDTV of this size.
Good price just no freeview HD!
Says on the site under Product Features, Built-in Freeview HD = Check. Is this not the case?

I think it's a mistake on their website.
Need new TV...moving 37" into extension...not ready for 2 more months...will something better come along?

(Probably!)

Spare room is a decent enough size for this, was thinking for moving my xbox and PS3 away from the living room and have it as a bit of a games room...

I ordered it but now I'm wondering whether I should have X)
Am I greedy to want this for £350?
Managed to load it by refreshing my page on safari , but after some ooohing and aahing I decided to opt for the panasonic 50 inch Viera @ £499 from John Lewis with a free 5 year guarantee/warrantee , it is A+ energy efficient ( half the price to run ) and they are delivering it on my late mothers birthday ,

I think Samsung 51" HD Ready Plasma TV for £350 deal has reached 1K+ heat a few weeks ago. Same deal for full HD will likely sell out in seconds if that even happens. The ones that bargaincrazy had were probably ex-displays.

Couldn't agree more, but I suspect you got carried away and ended up saying exactly the opposite of what you MEANT
was tempted by this, but it has some shocking reviews - issues with reliability and auto brightness sensor
I think ashmac, just wanted to spice this thread up a little.
Virtually every plasma tv thread descends into the LCD vs Plasma argument.
He probably just wanted to to kick off the argument from the very start.

£429 is certainly a great price for a 51" 1080p TV set.

HD ready in 2013? I think smart tv's/3D should be around this price, A regular 1080p should be below the £370 mark, At the moment am I looking to replace my 42 hd ready, up sizing 9 inches is not worth £430
Great price

Thanks
Seems like a good deal but the TV is dog ****, the auto brightness correction is so offensive its unwatchable - there is a reason this is discounted so heavily. Avoid.

It's been said on avforums you could switch off the eco features to get rid of it if it bothers you. Also it is not that heavily discounted, people were buying it for just £100 extra more than a year ago (Jun 2012).
I can confirm that this does NOT have FreeviewHD......... But it's a fab tv, great blacks, fantastic picture.

I don't have any auto brightness problems with mine, but then it's set up properly and calibrated correctly...... No idea why our how you have had problems.

If 'calibrated correctly' means turning off half the features, then yeah, … If 'calibrated correctly' means turning off half the features, then yeah, knock yourself out. Idiot.


No, it means using the calibration video from the AVforums to set the TV up correctly for my viewing room.......and if by "half the features" you mean the pointless eco-power saving that was apparently causing that problem then you honestly haven't got a clue, as with or without that "feature" this TV has a fantastic picture - perhaps you need to remove your head from your rectum and stop being so abusive!

Turn it off then????

So tempted, but chunky frame is putting me off - i already live with a similar looking 58" sammy, but new edge to edge looks soo much more appealing - can get the 15% too!!!
just noticed thickness too...58mm

You do realise this is a budget set? Actually, the width of the frame and thickness of the screen are surprisingly small considering where this fits into Samsung range. One bonus with plasma is that you don't need many of the features that LCD screens boast because plasma doesn't suffer from the problems inherant with LCD ie motion blur and bad blacks, and therefore a low range plasma tends to give a picture that would be considered relatively high end by LCD standards.
