My bad... I've edited the post. Thanks

I was checking out this TV earlier on Amazon.
Looks like HotUKDealers have made the delivery time slip to "Usually dispatched within 8 to 9 days" (as it was available for next day an hour ago)

that is one fat ass samsung LED set... how come? does it need all that room for the smart features? i mean wireless will add barely any bulk..

With most brands the screen size is in the model number e.g. UE40EH5300

Great price, but I must not buy! Trying to save

It's because it has full screen backlighting for better contrast

Be careful as its not wifi built in but wifi ready meaning you have to buy a seperate dongle(£40-£70)

It doesnt have wifi built in. You need to buy a wireless adapter to use wifi.

Its fat because the new 2012 Eh series TV's use Full Array LED's which are directly behind the screen, (ie not edge lit)

I assume that this is a 50 hertz screen ? Does it suffer from blur?

I bought this TV last week its really good. The dongle is £35 in PC World/Currys and I have seen it on amazon for that price. The only thing is the remote isnt great for web browsing...but download the free iphone app and you are ready to go

This deal reached 923° 11 days ago when the price was £479.99

It's a shame John Lewis don't stock the 5300 as a 5-year warranty price-match would be ace

Thanks OP, just got one. Was after a TV for a while now.

100 Clear Motion Rate .. would that suggest it is 100hz

oOo

thats quite interesting... a full backlit set at this price, did not expect that, hence my original post.. never see na full backlit anywehre near this price.. will probably weigh quite a bit but the contrasts in it should be pretty sweet

nice price!

You don't need to spend £40-£70 on the official Samsung one, amazon.co.uk/gp/…i00 works perfectly fine with these. Or I'm sure with some more research you could find a much cheaper one.

It's still edge lit LED -- NOT Full Array LED !!! Don't know why people speculate, nowhere on samsung/amazon mention it's full backlit LED

Great price. Presumably the dongles are quite small are they? (and don't inhibit wall mounting)

Samsung '100 Clear Motion rate' means high refresh rate 100hz. The screen adapts to how fast the pictures are moving as opposed to just sticking to a single refresh rate so no it's not a 50hz screen as it can go up to 100hz. It also does not suffer from blur,

Well this has no local dimming, so it's basically just like a normal LCD TV, except the backlight is LED rather than CCFL. I'm not sure if that actually makes the TV PQ any better, but it is cheaper to run I assume.

I don't think 100 Clear Motion Rate is really 100Hz, but it's better than nothing.

The EH series IS BACKLIT. Does the Samsung website say it's SIDELIT? No. So the same silly argument applies. People in the know know that it is backlit. It doesn't matter what the Samsung website says. The Samsung website doesn't mention that the EH5000 has Freeview HD, yet it does.

The moral of the story is this: don't trust the Samsung website.
The second moral of the story is that being backlit is not some incredible new idea/technology, and therefore you shouldn't be surprised if a budget model uses backlighting. ALL old, non-LED LCD TVs used backlighting. Do some research when Jeremy Kyle finishes!



Dongles aren't particularly small, but the USB port is on the side of the TV, recessed by about 2 inches.

Been looking out for a great price on a Samsung TV and this fits the bill - next best price I could find was £530. Ordered and heat added.

And it's 100hz according to Sainsbury's



There are plenty of reviews on Amazon showing that these don't work with the 2012 TVs.

hmm.. so its full backlit LED, but not full array (doesnt have the local dimming?) is that correct?

still it does suprise me they are down to this price, full backlit with someone liek sony started at £2,500 last year for a 46"

i appreciate the pannels are still LCD's but i find the contrasts/brightness/vivacity of full backlit sets to be pretty impressive

is pretty impressive to hear how good the blacks are in this set too

Yea, I mean if it had local dimming AND was fully backlit, there is no way it would be cheaper than the more expensive models with sidelighting and local dimming, is there? I wouldn't put my life on this not having local dimming, but I read it somewhere and it just makes sense when you consider the price.

Either way, let's hope that manufacturers stop trying to produce ultra-thin sets and start using backlighting in all TVs. It pretty much eliminates screen uniformity issues and spotlighting.

Bargain, only £15 more than last years 32". I've gone for it, finally upgrading my C550 Samsung, non LED Backlit. Apparently this has LAN/Ethernet/Wired port (whatever you call it) so I can use my Netgear universal wifi device

It might be fatter to house bigger/better speakers as I heard last years models had complaints about sound quality(?)

Shame no 3D. And too bulky, too. Otherwise a good deal

3D at this price? Too bulky? Next patient, please.

heat added, good find.

Any reviews for this? Cant seem to find any.

does it have a web browser?
