Samsung UE32J5100 LED HD 1080p TV, 32" with Freeview HD. Latest model. John Lewis have price matched.

5 YEAR WARRANTY

- It's Full HD 1080p LED with a 100Hz motion rate.
- FREE DELIVERY
- Screen resolution 1920 x 1080 pixels
- Freeview HD
- Energy rating A
- 200 PQI
- Connectivity: HDMI x 2

Obviously you can get a cheaper LED 1080p TV from a brand you've never heard of, but Samsung are one of the best brands for TV's

I've got the UE32H500 (model from last year) and the picture quality is amazing; great for gaming.

Maybe it'll be cheaper come Black Friday, but it's an awesome price for the spec and 5 year warranty

Tempted with this for the bedroom as I have a 7-8 year old 32" LCD samsung which has work faultlessly.
Good deal but not SMART or DLNA compatible if you need it
Good price been looking at this one this week as same price on Amazon (John Lewis have the added value of the 5 year guarantee though). I want to buy something similar for Christmas. Anyone remember if on Black Friday the price of TV's like this e.g. Samsung\Sony are better?
I don't want anything bigger and have a PS3 connected to the TV so don't need a smart one.

Should still suit a lot of people who don't network their TV's. Smart access is nice to have but you'd have to be looking at different price bracket. Personally I would go for a smart tv as you pointed out as media in one location is the norm but there's still a lot prefer the physical media.
If anyone wants to buy through Amazon this TV qualifies for:
'Get a NOW TV Box for £14.99 with purchase of qualifying TV'
As far as I can see that is a saving of £10 off the Now TV box.
can get it with 6 years from richer sounds

Haven't you seen the price of "Smart Sticks"?
Bought this a few months ago, great set if you don't need smart features (because you have a more versatile fire tv stick etc). Deep blacks, been great with the xbox too. Make sure you set the picture settings to movie mode so that 'dynamic contrast' gets switched completely off - otherwise it will change brightness based on what's on screen, which is distracting. You can then fine tune the individual settings in movie mode to taste. I also turn off all of the other picture 'features' like noise reduction etc etc. Only negative is number of HDMI ports, but I got a neet cables switcher which automatically switches when you turn things off/on, which is actually better as the remote can stay in the drawer.

Only selling mine as 32" is too small for me, and recently got the same TV in the 40" version!

Just plug in a Fire Stick or Chromecast. Even Samsung will probably not keep updating their Apps for the duration of the 5 year guarantee of the TV, you will have better luck with Google or Amazon in terms of app updates.
got one for the kids a month ago has a HP microserver plugged in for films etc. great TV very pleased wanted higher refresh rate wasn't bothered about smart functions light weight so will hang on plasterboard easy compared to old TV which had no chance. was suprised with the screen seems very nice and clear. sound shocked me the most people seem to moan about sound on a TV this size but it is very loud even too loud. only gripe is the plastic solver bezle at the bottom right corner does not fit snug sticks out a bit if it was my main TV it would have gone back excellent buy

Very useful. Would you mind letting us know which HDMI switch you use? There are so many out there it's difficult to make a choice.

Yes of course, I use this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B001DAHS5Q.

This and all HDMI switchers (from what i understand) require a specific signal from the source device to initiate the switch to that source, so if the source device does not send that signal, it won't auto switch when turned on (Apple TV doesn't for example). However, as long as two out of three of the connected devices do send the signal, then you can just turn off the two that do and the neet switch will go back to the source that doesn't auto switch. Failing that there's a physical button on the switcher to change sources.

95% of the time I'm only switching between the fire tv stick and xbox 360 with the switcher and the xbox 360 autoswitches no problem. The fire tv stick does a stupid thing when not in use and plays the screensaver for a bit and then switches "off" but still sends a signal to the TV with just a black screen, so it's actually impossible to turn off without pulling the power. So dumb, and means it doesn't autoswitch properly, but for me I just turn off the xbox and it goes back to the fire tv stick.

Anyway, long story short, depending on how many devices you're connecting and what they are you may or may not be better off with a switcher with an IR remote

Cold from me I paid this for an LG LED 32" over 6 years ago with Freeview HD and 200hz and with 5 year warranty and that was when 32" was relevant and was a decent size for your front room, now 32" is just a bedroom TV.
32" now should be no more than about £125 - £150

Ok, can you post a deal for a decent 32" TV for £125-£150 as I would definitely be interested.

You won't find one because numpties like you paying this sort of money for a bedroom TV, keeps the prices falsely high!

Haven't you seen the price of "Smart Sticks"?



Yep £20-30 and for £50 extra than this offer you can get everything fully integrated - http://www.johnlewis.com/samsung-ue32j5500-led-hd-1080p-smart-tv-32-with-freeview-hd-and-built-in-wi-fi/p1939972?sku=234328325&kpid=234328325&s_kenid=f7c7e619-6595-4ab0-9b93-56a744d1d0b9&s_kwcid=402x368948&tmad=c&tmcampid=73

Just saying it is a good deal but some might like an all in one solution especially when this only has 2 hdmi ports so likely more expense on an hdmi switch too!

So your theory works the same on numpties keeping house prices up and really you should be able to by a nice 5 bed detached for £50k, what a totally ridiculous statement to make!

Agreed, thats a good deal you've linked.

No external device has ITV/CH4 catch-up plus amazon instant video save for a couple of samsung blu-ray players which have their own issues.
So you end up with perhaps a Fire TV stick and a Now TV and the 3 remotes that come with it. Then if you want a games console or blu-ray player hooked up (or soundbar with HDMI ARC) then you need to start messing with HDMI switches. Along with teaching the other users in the house how to use it all! So an integrated smart solution is worth it if you ask me!

I hope Sony will bring their Android TV + Youview system to the bedroom size TVs, seems like the best system out atm (you can install Kodi right on the TV, too!).

​As op said he used previous model as monitor as do I. I use a ps4 and pc on mine it's brilliant as this is just the updated version so should be no different. This is a good price ignore silly comments saying it should be cheaper from what I see shops have loads of 32" tvs so they are popular for a reason.

apart from the fact that Sony's Android implementation is dire. I tried an X85 2015 Sony TV and took it back a fotnight later. horrible.

totally agree on buying the UE32j5500 instead of this though. Fully integrated smart apps with screen mirroring, WiFi and Ethernet. worth the extra £50. Buy form RS and get 6yr warranty as well.

Plex is available for the Samsung as well

I've heard its been getting updates which is making it a bit better, but yeah maybe waiting for next gen would be a smart move!

14 day no quibble return policy (free pick up), they even use hermes to drop and collect. Nice tv also good all round performer.
