There's the Sony KDL42EX443, which is £410 at Richer Sounds - John Lewis have price matched. No 3D or smart features but it has decent picture quality. But if you want a 100Hz or higher panel you'll have to pay more and put up with (ignore?) some smart features!
I cant find much info on this model when googling - just one purchase on Amazon? Does this TV go under a different model number then the one mentioned ????
The dogs dangly bits, apparently being superseded by one that has speech recognition??

I want this tv, my daughter-in-law has one and it is brilliant.

They have had it for over a year and have never used the 3d, smart or wireless features. But the picture is phenominal.

... here's one for you at AVForums .
Extract from review under comments - ".. We won’t beat around the bush, the Samsung UE46ES6540 came as something of a disappointment after what has come before from the Koreans and serious uniformity problems, in particular, prevent it gaining our recommendation."

Cheap price but you pay for what you get. Had the top of the range samsung 2 years ago - biggest pile of rubbsih. Returned to shop for full refund.

Hmm, Looks exactly like the UE40ES6800 that I've had my eye on for a while at Amazon. But that's £100 more. God knows what the differences are?
This seems to be a rebadged UE40ES6300, which can be bought for around the £549 mark elsewhere. You are basically paying £50 extra for a 5 year warranty (which isn't all that bad I suppose).

Edit: Actually feature-wise this seems to be the same as an ES6710.

There's no link; I got JL to price match the Richer Sounds offer, which is here:
richersounds.com/pro…443
Got a relative that really wants the 40es6710, currently 599 at amazon. Only difference, as far as i can tell, is that the 6710 has a white bezel frame, this which has black (& 5yr guarantee at JL). Saw the 6710 at PC world, picture is a beauty but so is the set it self
it is 400 Hz and details are available (in French) at samsung.com/be_…pec

I went from a Sony to a Samsung and absolutely love the Samsung. Smart/3D bought it a while back so paid more than this deal. HOT HOT !

Thanks for the input. I wasn't at all impressed by the UE40ES5500 so have been put off a bit by the Samsung low-mid range TVs, whereas the Sony HX753 looked a class apart in terms of pic quality
I have the 6750 which looks identical to this. When I bought it I found it very dofficult to find any info on it apart from a French website.
I've also been looking at this the last day or so, mainly as it comes with Freeview HD AND Freesat HD built in. Trouble I now have
is do I
- pay an extra £50 for the 6710 at JL for the microdimming (supposed to improve pic quality) and 400Hz
- get the 6710 from beyondtelevision.co.uk for the price of the JL 6540 but without the 5y warranty.
beyondtelevision.co.uk/HOM…=pr
- or get the 6800 for £650 for same price as 6710 at JL from PCRDirect.co.uk without the 5y - really like the thought of dual core for running those/future apps.
prcdirect.co.uk/pro…=aw

Decisions, Decisions. Think the 6710 and 5yr warranty is just winning.
The 6710 has the same featureset as the 6540. The only difference I can see is bezel colour (black vs white).

Also one major positives of the 6540 vs the 6300 however is how the connections are along the sides, as opposed to jutting out depth-wise (a nightmare for potential wall mounting)

I was looking at TV's this afternoon, and I saw the Sony SONY KDL46HX753BU 46 inch LED in Costco in Glasgow. They were playing an ad for the new S[iderman movie over and over again, using a Panasonic Blu Ray player.
I admit I'm no expert on these things, but it was the best picture quality I've ever seen.

That is the exact thing id like to know...
Kept my eye out for an offer on the Samsung range, but they all seem to be the same spec wise and the decisions tough as your stuck with it for 3+ years...
For now will mostly be used for SD viewing but hopefully soon upgrade plus i have blu-rays and games ill us in the mean time.
Am I being dense by not seeing what this TV has that the £390 odd LG that's been on recently, doesn't? That was 42" so a marginally bigger screen. LED, Full HD, Same Passive 3D. What makes this one worth £599?

Smart tv, better reviews, 5 year warranty, better quality.

thanks Slick. I think I'll go for the HX753, even though the Samsung is more wallet friendly and connected.
