    Product Overview

    This 43-inch Samsung LED smart TV brings the cinema experience to your living room, just without that annoying couple talking in the back. Its super vibrant 4K LED screen with HDR10 gives dazzling, crystal clear images and colours, breathing lifelike detail into every mystical forest or rain-soaked city street. Finished work and fancy binging some feel-good boxsets? Say no more. Thanks to the ever-growing Smart TV catalogue, you can kick back and enjoy access to all your favourite streaming apps and more. Plus, the clever combo of OTS lite and Q-Symphony sound puts an end to sound syncing issues for good. All that tech and it’s even compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google voice assistants – movie marathons just got even easier.

    To use smart features (including streaming services) on this TV, you’ll need to create or sign into a Samsung Account. Without signing in, you’ll only have access to standard channels and external devices, like consoles or blu ray players.

    We want you to fully enjoy your new TV, so please be careful when unpacking it to avoid putting any pressure on the screen.  There are a few different ways to get it out safely, so look for the instructions on the box.  If you need to return your TV for any reason, we just ask that you don't pack the plug in front of the screen as it could damage the TV in transit.

    Very good television

    5/5
    Everyone I know owns a Samsung tv so I bought one I could afford at the lower end of the range. It was simple to set up and is fantastic. I have no idea what a £2000 tv is like but I can’t see how it could be worth it. The picture on mine is almost too good - I can see the pores in the actors’ skin! It just needs to work like this for 5 or so years to be a bargain.

    No Timeshift

    1/5
    This model doesn't have timeshift enabled on it so you can't pause or record live tv even with a Hdd 3.0 5400rpm. Everything else is great about it though.
