Oliver......... Google is your friend..... 100

What's the MHz ???



It's a high frequency normally used for radio & TV transmissions, but that's not important right now.

Purchased last week JL priced matched with tj Hughes. , good tv and with JS 5 year warranty

I got the 5300 model, which is basically this, without wifi. I love it.

seems a good deal, especially since john lewis is giving you a free 5 year warranty, as the other one is an extra £89.

standard def is garbage on this telly, HD is good, If you can put up with bad SD get the tv it is cheap, it just annoys the hell out of me

I got the ES5500 with no built-in wifi. It uses LAN connection for £449 from JL a year ago... I guess this one is better since it got built-in wifi and cheaper

That's the answer to a different question....

Do the Samsungs need a piece of equipment to have the wifi working?

looks good tv

fancy this vut does it have a built in tv guide ?

Some older Samsung models required you buy a dongle [ which varied in price from a tenner up to £40 ], but this model doesn't need any extras and works straight out of box. Just plug in your cables and away you go.

I see one of the features is DNLA...so, with this I can renew my road tax rather than writing to Swansea or queuing at the Post Office?

I got this in 32" and only got good things to say about it.. The smart features are impressive! The only downside is in 720p the picture looks crap! The TV is only HD with full 1080p content..

I want this set!!!

nice find

That would be 0.0001 MHz.

Good price for a budget set - I would probably pay the extra £40 for the 6 series if I was working to that kind of budget, but still, not bad at all so have some heat

Lg 42ln575v or this???

Any idea what the difference is between the Samsung models?

Please help!!
I have Sky HD box but no outside/indoor ariel connected to my TV so can only watch the TV through Sky.
Would I be able to use the smart features on this TV through the Sky box or would I need to get an ariel installed??

Yes - as long as you have WiFi in your house or can connect the TV to your internet router with a LAN cable. The SMART functions need an internet connection not an aerial.

Got to agree that the SD channels are horrific. 720p doesn't look too bad but I have a lot of 1080p movies on my media centre and they look and sound great!

Yes it does have a TV Guide, has recording/pause/rewind features if you attach a USB powered hard drive or a big enough memory stick

All in all great TV, I purchased mine after the last deal when it was price matched with TJ Hughes, very happy with it, although it is a significant upgrade from my tiny 22" I think I would be happy with anything bigger than that to watch downstairs!

Do John lewis take long to respond to a price match?

My price match request for this TV was answered the same day within a few hours. Some times it can take up to a couple of days.

great price for this TV with the 5yr guarantee... not sure it's worth upgrading my tosh RL958B though

This would be funny if he'd asked "What's a MHz?" - but use of the word "the" clearly makes it specific to this particular item.

Oh dear...I will be sure get a solicitor's letter before making a quip next time!

At best the question showed a lack of grasp of what was being asked.... my young lad (who hasn't quite grasped 'quantity of time' yet)...asks me "How long until dinner?" ...so I tell him "Twenty minutes son"...he then says "Is that long?"

As someone rightly answered, the Mhz in this case (assuming he's referring to the refresh rate & not the CPU's crystal oscillator on the motherboard!) is 0.0001 MHz ....or to put in a more readable 'street' format ......100Hz.

LG 42LN575V or the Samsung people?
