Full HD WITHOUT FreeViewHD is what hate in these ... may be its just me ?


According to Samsung it has a dvb-t2 tuner, so is FreeviewHD

so many tv deals lol its like 3-4 per hour

You can't argue with the price but that is one of the deepest LED tv's I've seen!

£348.99 (£339 + £9.99) great price.

Any idea what refurbished grade this tv is?
Also hows the 3D?

Confused whether to get this or SAMSUNGUE37EH5000 from Richer Sounds for £299.95

Some reviews seem to state the picture is grainy...

I'd rather pay a little more for an ES, the EH are the budget model and very thick for a current LED model

This is a very good TV with full HD, active 3D +2 pairs of glasses in the box and Freeview HD. I bought one last year for Olympics and paid £470. Worth every penny cos it was like a theatre of Olympics in my living room. It does not have a smart TV function but you can buy USB smart TV dongles at the cheap price rather than spending another £100 to get a smart TV version of this TV.

i have the 46inch eh5000 model, replaced my more expensive lg 'full array backlight' tv which broke after 6 months, and this simpler led backlighting has been effective and stable.
yes, the closed-in back panel makes it a little too thick for mounting on a wall, but it's a light weight tv, and i don't see any problems when in the tv unit.
the es series is still edge lighting i believe, but i've compared and prefer the consistent lighting from backlighting.

Any ideas on which Smart TV would be compatible with this tv?

I was researching what I think was the same model yesterday (no K on the end) and there were tons of reviews citing severe motion blur. Also a fair few people complaining about cross-talk on the 3D, though to be fair there were just as many people who didn't have any such trouble. If this is refurbished it could well be because of one those problems. I'm looking at this one as an alternative: richersounds.com/pro…400

I have the 46" and yeah i find the 3d is the tv's only weak spot . But it depends on what you watch i find the 3d has no cross talk if it's viewed from the inbuilt explore 3d app and a lot of youtube clips especially the guy with the chainsaw are great 3d .

However proper films seems to suffer from crosstalk but that could be a setting on my ps3 as 3d Games look good like motorstorm and super stardust with little crosstalk , but then crysis 3 looks terrible and not 3d at all . So it's a bit of a lottery but i suspect many tv's are like this not just this one.

Motion blur - i use the motion plus on pretty much max and this helps with blur. You can adjust dejudder and anti blur independantly between 0 - 10 so anybody can find a balance between smooth motion, blur reduction etc . I leave them both on 10 but im a freak who likes the soap opera effect

Good price and I'm sure refurbished sets will be fine - there are new sets on Tesco Direct for £398 (+ postage) and no doubt there will be cashback deals which would apply to bring the price down a bit if anyone would prefer new.

awful looking and thick as f**k

go buy a 40 lcd for half the price

You shouldn't be so hard on yourself...

My TV is on a stand in the corner of the room, therefor i cannot see the sides or back of it... so i couldnt care less if its 1cm thick of 4" thick!

Great pice for a budget 3D TV by a good manufacturer, i think this is as cheap or cheaper than the non-branded Teknica's and similar.
God knows what some of you want for < £350 but i doubt you will find a razor slim TV with this spec for the same price.

You need special glasses to make this work and it doesnt work too well with normal games, i think it works best with games that have been designed to do it... i tried with COD MW2 and i could see a ghost of the other players screen and one of the screens was overly stretched and was an odd scale...

After a little browsing... i think its called SimulView and it appears to only be available on newer 3d TV's so i would guess thats a no!

You clearly know nothing about LCD vs LED you should go and read up about it before making a foolish comment recommending people to buy an inferior alternative.

Just ordered the 46" EH5000 today myself. Will the difference between my 42" LCD 1080i/720p trusty Philips Ambilight be stunning or 'just' noticably better in your opinion?

Tempting...

Hey, did you make a decision? We're having the same dilemma... we would be happy with either size and not particularly bothered about 3D so would be interested to hear your thoughts (if you've decided already)

I think the thickness is not necessarily a flaw, as it is backlit led, not just edges like some ultra-skinny models. Also the improved sound required bigger speakers. Besides, my wife's always saying she wants something a bit thicker......I guess she means the tv??

Freeview HD seems pretty pointless given the poor channel selection. If you're going to spend money on a nice TV worth getting satellite or cable to have some decent HD content watch on it.

hmm, what the BBC HD content, thats the BBC that are widely regarded as one of the best broadcasters in the world. thanks for your wisdom.

This being sold brand new by Tesco for just £50 more and you get a shed load of clubcard points and probably a longer warranty (not sure about this but heard Samsung give 5 years?)

I went for this in the end. Hopefully it works out. Decided £50 was worth the 3D, extra screen size and the fact it's a newer model. Only thing I'm worried about is it being refurbished.

Received the TV last night and for a refurbished model I'm really impressed. All packaging seemed as good as new. Only really issue was that they sent a wrong part which connects the stand to the television, which seems to be for an smaller model. I'll be contacting them today and hopefully that issue can be resolved soon.

Back to the TV as I said it looked brand new, and all the firmware on the model I received were already up to date. The picture is great, again like people have previously stated the factory settings need a bit of tweaking to get the most out of it and the 3D is great too. I can also confirm that it does indeed come with Freeview HD for those that need it however it doesn't have Smart TV. In conclusion you're getting a lot of value in this TV especially for £350.

Will you please be able to put any settings you find that correct the picture. Many Thanks.

how much are the glasses for this, and did it defiantly come with 2 pairs as stated? thanks

Guys, this is going to be a question I'm sure I will be flamed (if that's the correct terminology) but can you watch 3D movies you've acquired from the internet on this?

If so do you do it directly with a USB stick or must you go through something like PS3 Media Server (use this currently on my tv for MKVs).

umm actually, it is Active 3D tv's that have this function only. They send two full HD pictures to each eye to simulate 3D whereas the passive technology TV does not. Therefore you are unable to watch two separate screens on a passive TV, which i believe this is. Active TV's are more expensive and require powered 3D glasses, Passive only require standard 3D glasses and is a lot cheaper.

I do not know that much about it, but i believe this is the basics of it. A quick Google will enlighten you.
