Just looked up @ JL, it seems they don't sell this TV.

Is this TV any good? Anyone has one?

I bought this one from Richer Sounds three days ago. I could not find any reviews about this to save my life but I can give you enough info to inform your decision.

This is not 100hz but only 50hz. 100hz is only a new way to market 50hz tv using 'calculations' after digital processing. The real refresh rate is 50hz. Saying that, most would suggest you not to buy this tv because 50hz would be terrible for a tv of this size. But that is not entirely true as the tv handles motion really well. Yes, there is a good amount of jittering when camera is moving from one side to another but it is not extreme. I am a movie fanatic and this is only a minor problem with this tv.

Now to the good part. This tv produces perfect images! The colours are spot on and the black levels beat the the crap out of most tvs double the price (excluding plasmas of course). Despite the us of edge LEDs, there is no clouding, no flashlights, nothing. In other words, this is truly a bargain which I do not understand why people don't care about much. If you are looking to buy a huge tv and not break the bank, this is perfect and pure value for money. The guys at richer sounds told me that none of them actually tried out the tv but still went on and told me not to expect much from it based on the price alone. Of course I understand that as they judged it only by its price. Calibrating is not reaaaaaally needed as when you switch to Film mode the colours are not far off. And I am one who cannot sit and watch a movie without pausing it to fix his projectors brightness and contrast...

In other words, I would def buy it again and would not spend 300 pounds more on the Sharp one just for higher motion rates. Of course this tv is not smart but I don't care. And btw, I have forgot to mention that this thing can play dual audio MKV file with subs from a portable hard drive plugged in the USB.. 0.0

If you need more info about the panel itself, you can take a look at reviews on UE32H5000 which is a veeeeery similar panel. I hope this was helpful.

Ps. Be careful when you try to set it up as these panels are very fragile. Don't put it face down or anything in when you try to screw the base as this can cause clouding problems when pressure is put on the panel and frame. Happened to me and managed to remove it using by wiping the screen with a soft cloth.


Update: For all those who did buy it, you can find the update file for the TV in the support -> Downloads pages of samsung UK site. Just unzip the exe file and copy the whole folder in a USB, plug it in the tv and update

Thanks for that styjp, seriously considering this. if you could confirm what connections this TV has, it varies from site to site. particularity interested in whether this has either scart or component and a headphone or analogue audio out.

No worries.Glad to be of help! One scart, 2 hdmi, 1 optical out (PCM, Dolby Digital, DTS, DTS Neo 2:5), 1 USB, 1 common interface and antenna.

edit: forgot the 3.5 headphone jack :P

Thanks again, it was the headphone jack I was more bothered about.

Surprised this isn't more popular given the price for the size. I'm still on the fence for now until I see one in the flesh. Its very tempting though.

im waiting for any Christmas deals for 55"+ around £1000 budget to replace my Panasonic Plasma.

5 series Samsung TV's are basic that's why your getting a 58" TV for that price.

Just shared this, it's £569.05 on eBay new delivered via hughesdirect:

hotukdeals.com/dea…616

Also for 95p more like others have said buy at Richer Sounds for a 5 year guarantee.

Only 2 HDMI? So you plug your sky/freesat recorder in and your bluray player or chromecast or whatever you fancy, and that's it!

58" - really?

nah, not really. You got us. It's a 32". there's no tricking you is there? Sharp as a tack.

PLEASE do NOT buy anything from Currys. Their after sales service is disgusting and their pushy tactics for people to buy their
Whatever Happens policy is appalling, especially when its not worth the paper it's written on. They always try to find a way out of repair, refund or replacement of your item with their carefully thought out terms and conditions.

Their policy should be called:

'' WE DON'T GIVE A TOSS AT WHAT EVER HAPPENS TO YOU AFTER WE TAKE YOUR MONEY''

Editor

Anybody know if this 'deal' is exclusive to Currys?

hahahahahahahah well, you certainly showed me. I will take this and learn from it and, I think, you've made me a better person

95p more at richer sounds.. you would also benefit from 5 year warranty with them

My recommendation would be not to wait for christmas, that's when they are at their highest price. August, September and February are the cheapest months to buy a tv. August because they clear out space for new models arriving in September and February because New models are announced in January and they have to get rid of excessive christmas stock.

Well to be fair it's only 600 pounds and it's a fantastic tv regarding picture quality. Personally I use an AV amp because of my system but an HDMI switch costs less than a meal

What type of screen it has?? Is that glossy or semi-matte or matte. It is really important to me because I want it for sunny room.

It's my pleasure, I'm sure you will love it!

Ok. So I dont care too much for 100hz. I'm happy if this can do 60hz gaming. Can anyone confirm this for me pleases?

It's advertised as 100hz, it is probably 50-60hz. I've set the ps3 on 60hz 1080p and it plays great. Don't worry, you won't be able to tell really.

no, it's basic. just an excellent movie player to play your usb files

I just do understand why people are so concerned about smart functions whey u can buy Fire Tv for just 79 pounds and have million times better smart functions than any TV or go eBay and buy "AMAZON FIRE TV-UK SETUP-UNLOCKED & LOADED-XBMC-FIREFOX-LIVE TV-MOVIES-SPORT-XXX " which is truly amazing media center for that price. Just do not get it.

Cinavia is a very recent adoption in the tv market so I would be surprised if this tv had it as it is not mandatory with tvs. I had no problems with mine so far. Everything played perfectly, even the dual language ones.
