USB & 4 x HDMI Connections

Excellent price for an LED 100hz TV in my opinion. Price includes £100 cashback from Samsung. To top it off it also includes a 5yr warranty.

38 Comments

so bringing the price down to £474 with the £100 cashback?

Looks like the price includes the £100 off according to the link.

Oooh i got this same deal from Beyondtelevision!! £705 - topcashback = £677 - £100 = £577

Choose beyond tv cos i think PRC charge extra for creditcards & i wanted to use my tesco clubcard CC for an extra £1.70 of points. lol

Absolutely awesome tv btw. Amazing pics for both HD & even SD tbh. Iplayer gives you streamed BBC HD programmes with no buffering delay (10mbit virginmedia cable before someone asks). USB media play function works really well. Not tried recording yet...
Sound is suprisingly good for a thin tv but obviously not amazing. Good volume and clear at normal volumes but poor at high volumes.
Works well, nice build quality. Only 3 complaints.... the HDMI ports are parallel with the screen (cables stick out sideways) but too close to the back of the screen so the cables which were cheap and went really hot on HUKD last week barely fit. They do fit but with a new tv i didnt like the ways it's pulling on the socket.

2nd complaint is similar - HDMI port position means it's impossible to hide anything but the thinnest cable. Thick HDMIs like the cheap HUKD ones dont bend enough so i have 2 loops of cable sticking out the side of my tv!

3rd and final complaint is the scart adapter. OK so you cant fit a socket on this tv - fine - but the breakout adapter they provide is the worst quality piece of 10p asda smartprice tat EVER. I have an old scart cable that actually was asda smartprice and cost 50p which is less flimsy and poor than this breakout so careful if you NEED to use a scart device.

Otherwise it's amazing!!

Yep it does, just checked once I added it to basket, was going to get it if the total was £474, ah well, good price though!

That's a hot price for a 40" LED.

How much different is this than the Sony Bravia KDL-40EX603 40" Full HD LED which is £699 in Currys? I know the Sony is only 50Hz, but the reviews seem to be saying that's okay. Is there any other advantage to the Samsung?

I know the Sony is quite a bit more, but I've got a lot of other Sony kit so it would probably integrate better.

but this is still only a LCD TV with LED backlighting, yes?
its not a 'full' LED tv?

True but they are £2000+ usually so......

guess my point was that they don't actually say its 'backlighting' on their advertising

Great tv & a great Price. Check amazon its 724.99
picked mine up today - this is a good price ive been waiting to buy one for a while * with a 5yr gaurantee.

I just picked mine up yesterday evening and set-up toda, absolutely amazing picture on just standard def, havnt even tried on HD. I was going to wall mount mine and hide the cables but as someone else has mentioned the ports are very close to the edge of the TV so will probably stick out and be visible!

hope to register for the 5 yr guarantee and 100 cashback tomorrow.

ps - does anyone know what the optimal settings are for this TV?

Hi Fmiah, Hope you don't have any problems getting the 5 year warranty as it seemd there may be some: avforums.com/for…tml
Seriously looking at this TV but not sure about the wood grain. Is it really noticeable? Whats your 1st impressions??
Optimal settings seem to be that of the UE40C6530, check out the forums on the above link.

Hi,

Thanks for the link, I will be on the phone to them now to check this out.

The TV itself is stunning....at first both myself and my wife were getting eye straing from the brightness of the screen, esp moving from an old CRT to this, and thought maybe we had made the wrong decision and should have stuck to a plasma, but we played with the settings, toned brightness and color down and switched to movie mode which has made a massive difference, a lot easier on the eye.

The picture on standard TV is amazing, some channels appear so realistic its astonishing, but this can change with different channels.

Its very thin, and the wood effect looks really nice, although you have to get really close to see it! from 5 feet away, it looks black.

For the money (hopefully no problems with the £100 cahsback), it really is excellent value.

Hope this helps.

That's what all LED TV's are, there are no true ones on sale. They all are either back or edge lit, nothing more.

HOT

I believe you are referring to OLED TVs

All those complaining about the sockets being near the side, what about buying the 90 degree angle adapters? less than $3 from dealextremem and the like.

Cash back already included in the price...

I believe you are referring to OLED TVs



The biggest OLED TV is hoped to be 33" by 2011 at an expected £1600.
They are typically 20" or under.
Pretty obvious this isn't going to be OLED.

Another problem, i dont think it has a headphone jack, annoying!

@ Stave84

I bought a Panasonic Free-Angle HDMI cable to use with my TV because its head can swivel 180 degrees so that the cable doesn't have to bend too much. I bought it from here and below is a picture.

You can also buy a 90 Degree HDMI Adapter which is also great (I use them at the back of my AV Receiver). But, as they only allow the cable to go one way, you'd need to be sure which way you wanted it to go before buying one. You can buy it here and below is a picture. In fact, this item gets posted on HUKD quite regularly.

Just tio let you know, I registered the TV yesterday on samsungs website, phoned them up later just to make sure all was alright, and the lady confirmed the TV had been registered for the 5 year warranty.

For the £100 cashback, the details are here:

madabouthandling.com/pag…tml

Apparently I should receive the £100 back within 28 days.

Can anyone confim if this TV have a USB record facility as stated on the 1staudiovisual website?

Recording Capability
"UE40C6620 has the ability to record and infinite amount of TV broadcasts in both standard and high definition when you plug in an external USB stick or USB external hard drive."

Does it work well? Thanks!

Seems like a good deal.
Anyone know if this model comes in a larger screen size?

Banned

Help me out here guys I take it it's no longer £674 as wen you put in the basket it says £699

Yes it does have a USB record facility, I think this is one feature this model has extra over the almost identical specced and more expensive UE40C6530 model.

This TV also comes in a 46" version I believe.

Looks like the rpice is gone up to 599!

Expired then.

Think it was the cheaper price on RGB too - or you can go instore & get it at the 574 price if your close by. thats what i did.

This or Sony EX503 for £510? is this worth £90 more?

This has gone up and come down again at PRC!!!! Its now £649, was £699 yesterday!!

Whare can you get a EX503 for £510?? Cheers

Out of the 2, I think the Samsung is the more bang for your buck.

hmm I cant remember what I used to calculate it to get it £510 now but its £540 using the 10% off on amazon

£529 now!

The UE40C6620 is £629 not £529, PRC price includes the £100 off.
I got the 40EX503 for £508 including Saturday delivery from Amazon as the price dropped to £554 plus 10% off code today for some reason and then went back up to £599.

Oh nice, let us know of your thoughts of the TV

Will do, sat here waiting for Mr Citylink as we speak!!!

£699 now! (with cashback)
