Samsung UE46f5300 smart TV at Sainsbury's only £399.99 down from £579!

Found 27th Jun 2014
This TV was online at Sainsbury's last week for £449.99 with a special £30 off code for one day only.

I ordered it and have since returned it as saw it in Sainsbury's Sydenham store for £399.99 on a promotion that started 25/6/14, they still had a load left in store (this is no longer on their website), presume this is a national in-store deal. As far as I can remember the promotion lasted for the next 3 weeks.

It went really hot at £419.99 so surely this is a good deal especially as Argos have it with £50 off at £529??

Great heads up Joshua but always helpful to put the store name in the header. Some people will be attracted by Nectar Points

46inch screen, it's a very good price for the quality of TV!

Wow, can't go wrong at that price

Thanks - got my online one ordered for £424 arriving today but will call my local store to see if they have it in store for less!

What's the return policy at Saisnbury's - I paid £450 last Thursday? Fab TV BTW

Another 50Hz-er unfortunately though. I'm looking for one for gaming so I'm not sure whether this is the best idea. I think it's Freeview HD though - can anyone confirm?

Says 100Hz on the box Dave. Has a HD freeview tuner yes

I was thinking it was 100Hz CMR (which is 50Hz physical refresh rate I think). Can anyone clarify?

So is it an in store deal only?

Amazing price I paid same for the older ue46f5000 model only a few months back heat added

heat great deal

Doesn't seem to be online.

looks good will see if my store has any in stock

Correct, ClearMotion rate = 2x actual rate.

Would still be fine for gaming, I've got a UE32F5000 which has the same refresh and the Xbox One looks awesome plugged into it.

Possible fast moving TV like football etc. might show a bit of tearing, you can often offset this in settings - removing the digital processing etc.

Wow this is even better than the 40" posted before.

Hi,

I just called and reserved last one at my local. But have since discovered it's not got built in wifi and requires a wifi dongle (about £30?) or ethernet connection. Hmmm. Why is it called Smart then? Not sure what to do now. I want a large screen, at around £400, with internet connection. Was hoping i'd found it!

You can pick up a good set of powerline adapters that will do the job for just over £15 if it's too far from your router!

Think about all the useless nectorian points u can get?

I have £140 worth

Will any old dongle do or does it have to be a Samsung?

£400 is what it always should have been, being only a 5 series..but still, reasonable deal for a 46" Samsung set, even if its the budget version.

Good as a bedroom/second room TV if you have the space

Heat added.. my sister and I managed to grab 2 at Uxbridge Sainsbury's....the staff could not believe the price!

got me 1 today & may I say wow amazing going from a 32 hd rdy, to this reminded me of the old days of going from a 14in to a 26in so a bit of nostalga thrown in to lol, many thanks for the heads up josh.

Went to Sainsburys to have a look at one, it was £399 but can't say I was too impressed with it. The edge is pretty thick compared to some of the screens which appear to go all the way to the end and the picture quality seemed like just a slight improvement over my current LG HD TV.

Buy on of these babies!!! Works a treat!

Bagged one of these at Eastbourne (Hampden Park) Sainsburys. Great TV at a super price. Thanks to the OP for the heads up.

As a matter of interest this TV was not on display and there was no advertising in store that they had them. I just asked the sales woman and she went off to check stock and said that she thought it funny that it was such a great price and it was not out on display and not advertised online!

Just saved myself £50. Bought today at £399.99, returned previous purchase at £449.99 from 13 days ago, paper exercise using same TV. Took me 30 minutes and a quick drive between 2 stores.

Even better Sainsbury's let me keep the points from the £449.99 purchase, double result!

They did have to open the box to prove there was a TV in it, LOL.

Be interested in what others thought about this set (I've bought it). The default settings are amongst the most horrific I've ever seen on a TV (mind you I've not bought one in a while). Looks OK with plenty of adjustment. I also don't much care for the handling of SD pictures, although HD is fine - as it tends to be on most sets. Anybody got any ideas on how to improve the SD picture?

Yea I purchased this earlier aswell and would be extremely interested in improving the picture. Also very disappointed this set does not support screen mirror after the initial specifications states it does.
I did get a bargain though as my mate works at Sainsburys so an extra 10% off. £360 total

Looks like its completely sold out :(. No longer listed on the website

You don't need to buy a samsung usb dongle for it. You can use any wireless bridge, gaming adapter etc which plugs into the ethernet port. You can get these for about 15 quid but they are not as easy to set up as the usb one. I managed to get a second hand Samsung usb dongle off ebay for 20 quid including p&p.

Also a lot of people forget they have a phone socket near their tv mainly for the purposes of sky tv. Plug your router in there and you don't need an adapter.

Unless your very good with flashing firmware you need the Samsung one. It is possible to use one that has the same chipset as the Samsung but after trawling the net finding out how to do I bought a second hand one off ebay for 20 quid. To be honest it just wasn't worth the time and hassle to save myself a tenner. You can use a wireless bridge or adapter that is ethernet based and plug it into the ethernet socket of the tv. I have an old belkin gaming adapter which works fine. My son has the TP Link one.

These come in useful as you can use them with any device (tv's, blurays, talk talk Youview box, sky box, Humax box etc etc) that has an ethernet socket and make them wireless.

You will get these for less off ebay. Not that straight forward to set up though.

Or this one from Currys PC World outlet
