Seems like a really good deal. Edge-lit 2012 model, minus bells and whistles. I.e. no SMART TV, only 2 HDMI ports etc.

I haven't seen a cheaper 46 inch from a major brand outside of ebay.

Free delivery as far as I can tell.

*EDIT*

This model DOES have Freeview HD. No recorder function though.

1% cashback with Quidco brings it down to £370.26

If you DO buy this TV, get the latest firmware for it here, update it via putting this file on a USB, as it includes all the latest screen/dnla and other samsung goodies that are on the later models!

I'd take quality over quantity any day.

I bought one of the Argos Bush 46" TV's a few days ago and I'm quite pleased with it.... the default brightness / contrast need some serious adjustment but once this is done the pciture quality is great and there is only a little bit of backlight bleed on the vertical edges.

According to online reviews e.g.:

..the Bush really can't hold a candle even to the low-end Samsung models. I don't think they compare personally.

try this philips 46" at tesco for 499 - it is full HD, freeview HD, smart tv, nice design - i know its more money but you get a lot for something you use everyday! tesco.com/dir…132

Tesco had these at £50, couldn't find one anywhere.

Why do they only have 2 Hdmi connections? Cant understand that. My 3 year Sony had four and I use all of them.

It seems to be a new trend by Samsung in particular to reduce costs on their lower end sets. It does seem odd that sets in 2012/13 have half of those in 2010/11 models.

I can see where they're coming from though. You have to remember that a signifcant proportion of people won't use ANY HDMI ports at all, relying on the inbuilt freeview alone. A set top box will use up one of the ports. Add a game console and you've used two. The amount of people needing more than two ports is fairly small I'd bet.

In any case, you can pick up a HDMI switcher for about a tenner if it's an issue. Admittedly, it's not exactly an elegant solution, but personally I don't see the presence of only two HDMIs as a major downside. That's just me though.

As mentioned above this is not Freeview HD therefore description requires amending

The EH5000 DOES have Freeview HD

I'd say you were spot. This issue is like SMART on TV's, everyone who you talk to now seems to say that they want/need SMART but many don't actually know what it is. My Sony is a Smart TV, and I NEVER use the internet capability mainly because its slow and cumbersome, not saying its not a good feature, I just think its not essential, bit a of marketing win from the industry perhaps??

Info added to OP above

Standard delivery seems to be £25
Total now is £394...I'll pass.

Deedie

Tesco had these at £50, couldn't find one anywhere.



I remember the Xmas TV offer prices that Tesco had. They were while stocks last but they never got any stock in in the first place. So they never HAD them at £50 at all. Just another Tesco ploy to get you into their stores in the hope you'll stop anyway to buy some groceries.

What is the difference between Samsung F series tvs and these these E series tvs?

Definitely has freeview HD. See link below. It does not have ANYNET+ though (HDMi-CEC) which means you will NOT be able to operate any dvd / blu ray from the tv remote. This actually put me off buying a Samsung 5000 series and bought an LG instead.

this can be bought at laptops direct using the which code (1 quid signup offer) for 370 delivered rather than this 394 delivered

Down to £370 now. Just ordered one for my parents, they dont need the smart tv tech or 3d.
