Has this got freeview hd tuner should have ? Its £269 at richer sounds so this is even cheaper !
Not certain about the hd tuner but really good price - shame its not an onkyo ;0)
I've been looking at this. Waiting to hear from John Lewis about whether they'll price match as they include 5 year warranty on all TVs.
Well DirectTVs have a shop in Huddersfield if I remember right, so they can't use the arguement of only matching online deals
If you read the review on Amazon it is most informative and says it does get the Freeview HD channels and even tells you why it is not advertised that it can.

They do have a store in Huddersfield but I wonder if John Lewis would class it as being a high street store. If anyone does get a price match please do let us know,

agree with this - I bought this TV from Amazon a couple of weeks back and there is one particulary helpful and detailed review that answers a lot of the most commonly asked questions.

Really pleased with this TV so far.
want it... waiting from John Lewis as well...
Fat, cheap build TV.
JL have price matched mine @ £269 with Richer Sounds. If they can match for £259 then even better

Donny, when did you send your request? I was yesterday morning. Not heard anything yet. Anyone know how long these requests take?

Mike, unless it's to be wall mounted, how thick it is is not important. I'm more interested in the best picture I can get for around £250.
This was £239 at currys in runcorn today!! Was tempted until i saw how thick it was. Not what i expected from a LED tv

Cos its made from cheapo components.
Which is perhaps why it isn't 100 quid more.

If so, that would be a good deal: JL's price has 5 year warranty whereas Richer needs £269.95 + £26.95 5 yr warranty = £296.90. I am surprised JL are not matching like with like; JL being generous.
Whilst the description "Freeview HD" may imply some legal conotations. I cannot see that the description of being DVB-T2 compliant (i.e. being able to receive and decode Freeview HD) has any restrictions yet I cannot find reference to this in any technical spec?

It has freeview HD, my computer is hooked up to it at too at present and it's great resolution on it as well. It is a bit fatter than other LED TV's but compare the sound on other TV's to this one, very good inbuilt speakers in this one, makes a great 2nd TV for the house, I haven't tried it on the Xbox or PS3 yet (cause I couldn't be arsed moving everything :-) ) But others have said it works well on them. The movie USB input is brilliant too, plays everything I through at it.

£289 with JL now online, I'd pay the extra £30 for a 5 year piece of mind (_;)

Unless it's somehow thicker than the stand what's the problem?

Wall Mounting!


Stevymp I am looking for a wall mounted PC monitor /TV with already installed mini surround in my study

Does this set receive the four HD channels currently free-to-air in the UK? YES. Perfectly and with no special measures (apart from the viewer selecting the correct channel numbers for the HD services, of course). So... why does the Amazon description above imply that it doesn't, and why do Samsung UK support, if you phone them, emphatically confirm that it doesn't and say you need a more expensive model for HD TV off-air? The answer is the marketing policy of the company the owns the Freeview trademark. They insist that to be labelled and sold with the "Freeview HD" designation, sets must not only receive the HD channels, but also fulfil other technical conditions, including a considerable degree of Internet connectivity (of which more in my next answer). But if you take the common-sense view that "receiving all UK HD terrestrial channels" means, er... "receiving all UK HD terrestial channels", then these sets can do that just fine, in exactly the same way that sets officially labelled "Freeview HD" do. But if Amazon, or even Samsung themselves, claimed these sets were Freeview HD compatible, Freeview's lawyers would jump on them. So we get the silly situation where in effect sellers are obliged to describe these items misleadingly to avoid legal trouble (of the major sellers, only Richer Sounds seems to put honesty before legality in this matter).
My Sister got one 2 weeks after me and has her's wall mounted it's fully VESA compliable, it really isn't that thick, just thicker than some other LED TV's I've seen, but as I've siad the sound is far better on this one, I tried quite a few tv's in several stores and found the sound tinney on most of them, my main room 40" LCD has awful sound on its own, thankfully I can run digital output to the amp.
Got this from Amazon for a similar price - thicker, but has a much thinner bezel than most TVs, so it depends if you enjoy watching TV from the front or sideways. Use it in the loft for gaming and it's great, good sound, picture and response time.
Is it worth paying extra and getting a 100 Hz model?

Many on here mention motion blur, whats this?

Not seen motion blur mentioned in this thread.
Bought this TV last week from John Lewis with a price match. I was a bit worried that they would sell out before they agreed to the price match so I took a chance and ordered anyway- sure enough they emailed me the next day to say they would price match.

In my opinion it's an excellent TV for the money plus a 5 year guarantee is a no brainer.

No, because it has full LED backlighting and is not just edge lit. And probably also because it does not cost £500++++. The tv is excellent and I have no problems with motion blur or anything, it receives freeview HD channels.
Another positive Samsung UE32EH5000 review here : trustedreviews.com/sam…iew

I saw it in the shops today, looked great demo'ed with HD source, had slight concerns with demo of pre-recorded SD source but took the plunge anyway

They price matched it at £269 for me so mI think they will probably do £259 as well. I was ready to buy the TV until I went to have a last check of it at Currys. I was put off by the average picture quality and also the very thick dimensions of the case (which was an issue as I planned to wall mount it)
currently using this as a pc monitor, little bit disappointed... , i was expecting to see much improvement over my 28 "hannspree lcd but it hasnt really been the case , when watching blu ray rips i'm seeing pixels where the blacks are in dark/night scenes, was also expecting the picture quality to match our 2yr old samsung we use the xbox360 on , the 32B6000 series it's not only more slimline but blurays look much clearer/sharper though it did cost us £480 back then.
With have the 40 inch version and the picture is superb in hd and sd you have to get the picture settings right which takes time but the best thing I bought in 2012
£280 now......
I installed this for my mother-inlaw today, a great deal from John Lewis who price matched it to Richer Sounds, it's a very cheap plastic telly, in true Samsung style ! & it feels like there is hardly anything in it! you can pick it up with one hand easy, but the picture is good, although def have to tweak it from the default settings as it's super day-glo colour when we first switched it on. It def suffers from motion blur as well but for the money it's not a bad buy, just don't expect high quality. I would def go for the 42" Panasonic plasma deal thats on UKHot deals instead as a much better quality buy, but it was just to big for the space.
hello not sure if this has been already discussed but can anyone tell me if this is full HD as it says HD ready but when I google this model its saying different things

Oh and what is the difference betwen HD ready and full HD - is the picture quality better on Full HD

thanks for your help
