Sound Bars

With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller - choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Sound bars add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.

Very Pleased I've had this a few days and now feel I can review it. I looked around for a television for sometime before settling on this. I can't fault the picture quality at all there is no apparent loss of detail even in SD colours are rendered well. I haven't found any noticeable issue with banding or dse blacks are rendered well and there is no clouding.. I have watched motor racing and football without motion blur The stand is sturdy but can be swivelled if necessary. I found the sound reasonable but others might like to add a soundbar. The television looks good I am happy with my choice 09 May 2014
An Excellent Television I am really pleased with this TV. A great picture in HD/3D and Standard is not bad either. Concerns that you may have:- Wireless Connectivity is no problem even at 8 Metres from Router. OK the sound like most new TV's is not brilliant but if like me you have a sound system with no optical input then use a Audio Optical convertor. It works fine. Have not experienced any Lip Sync issues with I Player. HD Judder can be resolved by going into picture settings and changing Motion Plus to Clear. A Great Television and with a 5 Year Guarantee what more can you ask for. Thank you Samsung and John Lewis. 01 May 2014
Excellent TV We are extremely happy with this TV. It certainly is a unique quality of picture, looking more life like and realistic colours. Whilst not being a great fan of 3D the quality of this function is also impressive. TV was delivered on Time with a professional service from John Lewis. 15 April 2014
Great TV We're delighted with our new TV. Works really well. Well worth visiting a John Lewis shop before you buy though to compare the different models. The staff in Wycombe were very helpful in explaining the different features. We have a soundbar and it sounds fantastic with this. 28 March 2014
Great TV We've had this television for about a month and we're are really impressed by it, superb picture and all the associated facilities are amazing, very easy to set-uo, a doddle to use, couldn't be more pleased. 12 March 2014
Great picture quality We've had this about a month now, and we're really happy with it. You will need two people to assemble the stand onto the tv itself which was a little fiddly but managable. The auto setup was also very straightforward, don't think you have to be too technically minded. Our last tv was a Sony Bravia which was 5 years old, the picture quality of the Samsung is amazing in comparison. We watched our first 3D movie the othe night, we didn't expect much, but it was brilliant, and neither of us had a headache afterwards (we do when we watch 3D at a cinema). The small dowside is the sound quality, we've fiddled around with the settings, but haven't been able to adjust it so that it matches the picture quality. We'll have to get a soundbar, just like some of the other reviwers have noted. 06 February 2014
