Damn, that's nice.
Would have snapped that up if I'd not recently purchased a TV!!

Am I right in thinking that all "LED" means is that the backlight is powered by a few high power LEDs, rather than the normal cold-cathode tubes?
If so is there *any* change to the picture quality - or is it just destined to be the next marketing fad, meant to make us think they'd got some radical new features.

Great find - they also have the 7 Series (UE40B7020) for £868.90 (after the £150 Samsung cashback):

beyondtelevision.co.uk/sam…tml

I think the main differences are that this one has Picture-in-Picture, Wireless connectivity, Smart Content Management and an extra USB port (2 in total). But not sure if that's worth the extra money??

Hot, hot, hot either way! :thumbsup:

These TVs have LEDs around the edge, which is why some people knock them for not being "LED TVs", but as I understand it what they have is a really fancy glass technology that disperses the light across the screen so that you get really vivid and intense colours. It's also why they are INCREDIBLY thin - if you get to have a look at one you WILL want one!

The latest LED backlight technology allows the television to individually control backlight segments. This technology allows for contrast ratios similar to those produced by plasma television panels. However, edge-lit LED televisions — usually available in an ultra-slim form factor — will have lower dynamic contrast ratios than the backlit LED models so be sure to check this detail before you purchase.

Agreed that testing shows that LED local dimming produces the best results, but the LED edge-lit TVs are cheaper, thinner and more power efficient - and do produce really vivid and intense colours (just not as intense as local dimming - if that's what you want to pay for! :-D)

Yes this is not true LED, Samsung recently got their hand smacked for advertising them as LED when they are only backlit LED!

Still the LED tech means the picture is better than that on a standard LCD.

If I had the room in my house this would be getting bought.

When the 50s hit this price i'll be gettin one

Have some heat for a gr8 deal though

Anyone buying an LCD or Plasma TV would have to be a mug now that LED backlight has come down this cheap

IMHO Give it 12 months and 50" LED will be about 600quids

Any good prices for the 46 ones?

Damm ive been looking for this now since last week and want it , but shame paypal have kept hold of £1000 and they claim they are going to keep it for 21 days :x ahh wished i never used ebay now considering a proper auction house wouldnt be entitled to keep my money grrr

Also, is this the one that doesn't have a proper RGB Scart connector?

shame, i bought the bravia on here a while back... gutted now.

More trolling, if I remember you correctly.

Nothing LED is going to beat a Panasonic or Pioneer plasma. Thanks for trying, though.

Why? Having seen a side-by-side comparison of a Plasma and an LED TV the LED won hands-down. For the record they were both Samsungs, so I guess you'll say they aren't as good as Panasonic or Pioneer, but that's probably a matter of opinion.

I don't think that's real LEDTV.

Scart is a very common connection, and anything a bit older (like a PS2, Wii, Sky Plus, DVD player etc) use it - I could be wrong, but I don't think this has a proper connector for that.

Regarding the above debate; they both have their strengths surely? The Panasonic plasmas have a ridiculously awesome refresh rate, colour reproduction and contrast ratio which are arguably the three most important things in a TV to a lot of people. Of course the Samsung TVs look amazing, are very energy efficient and have awesome brightness/crispness - so it depends what you like. For me personally, I love the LEDs, but the critics seem to go for the plasma every time, just because technically the picture is a lot better.

Shouldn't this be described as LED LCD, not just LED? Guess they're just trying to pull the wool over the eyes of the average bod who wanders in to the local electrical superstore. Still, the slimness of it is a great selling point, particularly for those trying to convince their other half that getting a big telly won't look naff.

Ha, ha... that's me! I had exactly that conversation with the wife this afternoon "sure it's big, but it's so thin it'll be easy to move around... honest..." :whistling:

you still on about the tv??? :-)

Superb find. Had been looking at maybe just getting the LE40B650, but the extra cash for one of these could be worth it after seeing both in action. Also good spot with the cash back

Good review of both the 6000 & 7000 models here ]http//ww…htm

Also, can we stop the whole 'these are not true LED' debates in the middle of these thread. These are terrific TVs and, whilst not full LED are superior to LCD alone TVs.

Heat and Rep added.

Any good prices for 46" Samsung LCDs please? :X Regular LCD or LED...

Correct,

These are backlit by LED's, Samsung now make this clear, due to a recent complaint made against their ad.
Which they lost, I'll try and put the link to this once I get home.

And they still don't come close to a Panasonic/Pioneer plasma.

And more importantly it's 100Hz compared to 50.

Sometimes people have to jump on these TV's because they believe they are getting next gen technology - when obviously they are not, don't get me wrong they are nice TV's but the LED backlit technology still needs a fair bit of tweaking and this Samsung has some rather serious flaws:
avforums.com/for…tml

Personally I would be plumping for the tried and trusted Plasma and even LCD until this technology matures a bit ... though LG have some cracking new models out and the LG 42SL800 makes a better fist of it than samsung:
trustedreviews.com/tvs…/p1
techradar.com/rev…iew
reviews.cnet.co.uk/tel…htm

knowing LG the prices will probably tumble over the coming months on this model.:thumbsup:

SuperMassiveWill;6918485

And more importantly it's 100Hz compared to 50.



According to the Samsung web site the 6 Series is also 100Mhz:

samsung.com/uk/…c=F

Hmm, I'm sure I read otherwise. Makes this all the more a bargain in that case.

I have to admit that I thought it was too - and I also thought that the 7 Series didn't have wireless, which is why I had been hoping for prices on the 8 series to drop, but that's what the official feature lists say, so I'm wondering if Samsung may have upped the specs on these? Seems unusual, but...

Either way there are definitely some good deals to be had on both the 6 and 7 series.

There should be a lot more cheap DVB-T telly's being offloaded to make room for DVB-T2 (FreeviewHD) over then next six months or so.
