    Product Overview

    Are you a movie buff or a boxset binger? Whatever your preference, this 50-inch Samsung smart TV has loads of great tech to make the latest releases look amazing. It’ll bring out every little detail and fill your screen with lifelike colour thanks the combo of a 4K resolution and HDR10. From the biggest blockbusters to cosy nature docs, you won’t believe your eyes. And it sounds good too. OTS Lite and Q-Symphony don’t just surround you in crystal-clear 3D audio, they also follow the action across the screen so it all sounds exactly like it should. How’s that for immersive? But if it does get a bit too loud, just hook up your Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa and ask it to turn the volume down for you. Who needs a remote anyway?

    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 – pull it out of the box using the edges so that you don’t damage the screen. 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.

    Great picture

    4/5
    Picture is really good, the only frustration is the number of set up screens. The tv is well packaged and easy to set up physically.

    excellent product and service

    5/5
    Very pleased with the product and the overall service from AO. The picture quality is amazing and puts our old TV to shame. Can't fault it.

    5/5

    Lauren

    Excellent quality picture for the price

    5/5
    Great picture, a much needed upgrade to our old TV of 12 years. The features and ease of use were impressive, it practically set itself up! This is our second Samsung TV, as our son has a smart gaming monitor with similar features. Highly recommended for a well priced product.

      We can collect your old TV and take it away for recycling. Our experts will recycle it safely and responsibly in our state-of-the-art facility.

      The cost of our Remove & Recycle service goes towards safely transporting the product to our recycling plant. Under the WEEE regulations, recycling costs are primarily covered by the product manufacturer.

      Also, while we’re picking up your appliance, if you’ve got any smaller kitchen electricals that need recycling – such as kettles, toasters or blenders – we’ll happily take those away too at no extra charge. Just pass them to your driver when we’re picking up your larger appliance.

      TVs come with quite a bit of bulky packaging. We’ll unpack your item, let you inspect it then take away all of the plastic wrap and foam packaging.
