Great tv I have the 32inch version in the bedroom, think you can get the smart version for around £50 more

Good price

Nice! Must resist

I'd avoid, had the D model a couple of years ago, broke after 13 months. tried to get it repaired but the panel LEDs were faulty, would have needed a whole new screen. the worst thing is, this is common on Samsung's.

Unfortunately this model hasn't changed much in the last few years, they just stick a new letter on, give it updated software and call it this years model. Avoid.

i've had the D series UE55D8000 for 3 years and it's been fantastic and hasn't been any problem at all, no good judging every samsung TV on one experience, samsung is the worlds largest display manufacturer, bound to get a few failures.

also the panels are distinctly different, they don't just swap the mainboard at all, as i've tried installing the ES model (UE55ES8000) mainboard in my TV and the image doesn't display properly, despite the TV looking almost identical to mine......proving your theory incorrect

Yeah, and buy smart price shopping, drive a skoda, and buy your clothes from sports direct.

You get what you pay for at the end of the day.

I agree with the pot head Pokemon, great tvs for the price. May not have all the fancy features but unrivalled picture quality at this price point.

I had the next model up from this, the smart version (F5300) and sent it back after less than one month. There was a huge blur all the way down the centre of the screen, it was only visible under certain light but still, not good enough, didn't bother getting a replacement just took a refund.

maybe it was damon albarn abseiling for a PR stunt for the commonwealth games?

I disagree, I have had a D 5 series Samsung for nearly 3 years and its been great. Lovely picture and never had any issues. The YouTube app is a bit clunky but that's about it.

My mother has just got this one from John Lewis on my recommendation, gets delivered tomorrow. £349 there but comes with a 5year warrantee.

no ethernet port?

Unlikely, as this TV doesn't have any smart features. Firmware updates can be applied via USB.

Although this photo seems to suggest it does have one
