    Got this from JL last week at £449, will they give me the difference?
    Yes fill in the price match form online. They still price match themselves, for 35 days after purchase I think it is.
    I know as I done the same recently, got Samsung tab s8 for £649, had promotion for £120 Samsung Cashback and also a separate promotion for an extra £200 enhanced trade in for old S5e (they gave £257 instead of £57).
    Then when £120 Cashback offer ended John Lewis dropped the price by £120. So I claimed price match and got £120 refunded too. All in all net spend of £152 (plus old s5e) for Tab S8

    I have the 43" version of this and would strongly recommend avoiding it. It has a plethora of bugs/quirks that make viewing it a very unpleasant experience.

    Switching between 50hz and 60hz on the same input enables the hideous motion smoothing settings, despite it saying it's disabled in the menu. The only workaround is to turn the TV off and on.

    External devices over HDMI are subject to extreme dimming, most evidently in dark scenes. It cannot be addressed in the menu. However, the inbuilt apps (using the same settings) are fine and look much better - but they're janky, slow and prone to very frequent buffering.

    Switching between the TV's apps can also trigger motion quirks. Going from Disney Plus to iPlayer creates a nasty judder effect that can only be fixed by switching to terrestrial TV and back.

    When everything works right, it's actually a pleasant picture - but getting it to stay that way takes a lot of work. (edited)

    The HDR on this won’t be good at all and in fact looking at the review from Rtings, it’s really not very good at all

    That said, be aware of this and expect nothing spectacular and you’ll be fine

    I got that soundbar free with my S95b. Got a fantastic deal... Sadly the soundbar doesn't work well with arc and frequently doesn't turn on when I turn on the TV and then won't even turn on when I use the soundbar remote to turn it on. I often have to pull the power cable out then plug it back in and it switches on automatically. It's not that great. However at £99 it's probably worth the hassle. Maybe just an issue with mine. The TV listed here isn't particularly good even as budget range. There's better ones available for just slightly more. I'd go for the Hisense E7HQ quantum dot which you can get for around £380 or else Samsung the Au9000 or Bu8500. ...but depends on your budget I guess. You can get some good Philips ambilight TV's for around 350-500 range too. (edited)
    Sounds like too much hassle even for £99. With the sluggish ui not sure how this is a good deal

    I've had my similar UE49MU7400 for years now and a few things to watch out for:

    Major light bleed around the edges of the panel. You won't notice this unless you are looking for it, but once you do, you won't be able to un-see it. Get a replacement if it's really bad within warranty.

    Panel flickering - normally happens when there's been a powercut or the TV has been switched off on the wall for a while. Leave it on for half hour and it eventually goes back to normal.

    Also the blacks/darks are terrible. You can't watch TV shows with dark scenes unless you turn off the lights.

    The gaming/low latency mode is a gimmick. The graphics drop so low to achieve it, it's like going from 4k to 720p. There is a trick you can do where you change the input to a custom PC mode, so it keeps latency low but you still get 4K RGB colours for playing on Xbox/Playstation.

    Was a good TV when it first released, but now I'd spend the extra and go for an OLED with 120hz or wait until they drop in price. Especially if you wish to game on an Xbox/Playstation. (edited)
    In fairness your MU and also the NU series of the 7000 series were slightly better than these AU and TU series. We now have a more recent AU7100 and it definitely feels a bit "budget". Quite of bit of value engineering with these newer models, primarily around the processor, audio and build quality.

    Ours is only in the shed, so no big issue. Personally if I was looking for a modern budget Samsung for the house, I wouldn't look at anything less than an 8000 series for marginally more cash (still awful audio, but much nicer build and design)

    Some advice would be appreciated.
    I currently have a Hisense 43A7100FTUK

    I'm in the market for a 55" TV. Not really used for gaming, just general TV, movies and netflix.

    Would this TV be much of an upgrade, in terms of picture quality, from the TV I currently have?

    Thank you
    Any samsung is an upgrade from hisense

    Do not buy ANY tv without a five year warranty.

    I don't understand why the Argos deal of the same TV with exactly the same price got so much heat? Argos only does one year warranty and you'd have to pay 106 for two years of insurance.
    However, here you get 5 years warranty for free and £50 extra for 5 years of accidental damage insurance! This is insane!!

    I did make a purchase from Argos but decided to not pick up and 5 days later decided to wait until JL had a TV sale...
    I have ordered with John Lewis with the additional warranty due to toddlers at home.
    I don't want to spend over 400 for a TV and I know OLED is better but for the next 5 years this will do the job! Thank you for posting this deal

    "I recently purchased Samsung integrated oven, induction hob, microwave, phone and tv. Thought it was a great idea/direction to go in. Been dealing with Samsung customer services for months now. Oh my life!
    You don`t state who the retailer was but that`s who you should be dealing with.

    Shamesung don't honour their warranty anyway. They have become one of the worst electronics manufacturers in recent years and hence the free fall in the price of their useless products..

    Good, albeit basic, TV (as far as Samsung TVs go), still better than a lot of other brands.

    Personally I would recommend spending a bit more on a series 8 or 9

    I heard about Samsung TV's having baked in ads, etc. Is that the case with this TV?

    Shame it's only white for the £99 sound bar tempted to still go.for the TV.

    Buy tv and sound bar for £479. Sell soundbar on eBay for c£150, so 50" tv for c£329. Sounds like a cracking deal
    Still not a good tv even at just over £300. But taken in context it really depends what it is for.

    I'm looking to buy a 55" oled TV (£1000) in the next couple of weeks to time with a home move but at this price I'm seriously thinking of going for this. This will suffice for the majority of my viewing, eg 4k Netflix.
    If you were buying an OLED this is the complete opposite end of the scale and I’m not sure why you would look at it.

    Much better out there for not a lot more

    I just got it yesterday from Argos. Any suggestions if i can return that and get from JL?
    Argos are a pain. Assuming you bought it in store, If you've opened it then I would say the odd of returning are minimal. If you switched it on, then forget it.

    If you've bought online then you have more options, so long as you have not used it beyond "reasonable inspection"

    Worth a go though. Sometimes you come across a more reasonable and flexible member of staff. (edited)

    Is this better than 55Au9000?
    Nope. Both in spec and build quality.

    We’ve had this TV for about 3 years now, and although it’s not outstanding, this is really good value! I would say the Smart TV features are slow, we use ours with an Apple TV, but the picture quality for the price is absolutely fine

    How do Samsung TVs compare to LG TVs I like the LG magic remotes like a wii remote.

    How does this compare to the LG nano 55 inch tv please?
  36. Avatar
    I originally wanted this but after reading reviews and comparisons Iv opted to wait for either the Au9000 or the Bu8000 as some features warrant the pass on this model.
    Been searching for a 65" tv for over a month and then pulled the trigger on AU9000. Big upgrade from a 6 year old 49" samsung that i had.

    Kept my eye on either AU8000 or AU9000. £550 and £600 respectively.
    Bought just before boxing day through Curry's. Kept saying 'awaiting stock' for couple of weeks and then just went with it.

    Since then still no discounts for those 2 models.

    Overall i'm happy, just not sure why Severance is a bit 'cloudy' or like washed out on apple TV+. Everything else seems to be fine.

    Not a great TV to be honest - it is very, very dark. I bought one for my parents as a secondary TV to replace the CX I took when i moved out and whilst I can appreciate it won't compare to the CX.. we all agreed they'd have been better buying the same TV that they use as their primary. It is a similar priced/spec LG that is honestly way better. Just my two cents!
