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.

Q & As

Fantastic TV and service all round. What a superb TV. Image quality is superb, with vibrant colours and crisp definition on both normal and HD sources. There is NO backlight bleeding or clouding whatsoever. Thanks to the local dimming black levels are nice and deep; even deeper than on my parent's plasma. The Smart Hub is very useful with a web browser, ITV Player, BBC iPlayer etc. The Active 3D looks great and you can even convert 2D broadcasts into 3D! My TV was delivered late, so JL kindly sent me some gift vouchers as compensation. After my dad and I installed the TV, I noticed a scratch on the screen. I contacted JL and they immediately arranged an exchange without any fuss. The helpline has been kind and helpful. My replacement TV is absolutely perfect. Thank you JL! 14 May 2014
excellent product great picture and sound worth every penny spent,3d also very good and the service from johns first class 22 April 2014
Not technical but am getting there I am not technically minded but love this new TV. I have managed to watch it with free view, with sky and have even managed to show my holiday photos on it to my friends too. If I can master the internet connection with it I will be well pleased. The picture quality is superb, so crisp and so vibrant, it has changed the whole use of my summer room, before it was a quiet space, now it is an enjoyable comfy room where I watch all my favourite programmes and even better 3 d nature programmes. It felt like I had a huge fish tank on the wall last night. Thankyou Samsung and John Lewis. 15 April 2014
Very happy I am extremely happy with this TV. I did lots of research including on Which - and found this to be the best by far for the money. We wanted a big TV for a small dedicated 'media room' mostly to watch films. This TV in the '6' Samsung series was the best of the bunch with 600hz (which means extra clarity and minimal blur) as opposed to much lower hz available even in the higher series bracket from Samsung. The 3D is amazing and I wasn't even bothered about that. Like our own little cinema! (But be sure to turn off the 'motion plus' effect when watching films - it's there to smooth out the action but it ends up looking like a cheap soap opera - really threw us at first, but then after a quick internet search it seems this is a fairly common reaction.) 02 April 2014
Samsung UE55F6740 LED HD 1080p 3D Smart TV, 55" with Freeview/Freesat HD and Voice Control with 2x 3D Glasses After lots of research on and off the internet we found this TV to be the best deal with prompt and friendly free delivery and a 5 year guarantee. It is brilliant and that's not just the contrast button. LOL 11 March 2014
Fantastic, mid level TV After searching on the internet for hours and researching all the latest models until my head hurt, I found this. Sitting near the top of the 6 series this has better aesthetics (I my opinion) and better specs than the 6800 model. It produces a breathtaking HD picture and the SD content looks as good as it can on a panel of this size. The 3D is excellent and watching Avatar on it felt like seeing it for the first time at the movies again, mesmerising. The panel I received was very uniform with no obvious clouding or DSE. It can handle motion easily and the contrast is very good. All in all a big step up from last years models. 10 March 2014
Great TV After much deliberation I went for the Samsung brand and have not been disappointed. Simple to set up, picture perfect. I have not checked out all the specifications yet (3D and voice control) but aside from all the bells and whistles the TV looks good with minimum width around the screen and a firm gun metal finish to the base. 23 February 2014
Beautifully crafted TV This TV is stunning, the picture quality and even the finish to the physical tv is worth every penny. The only annoy thing I would say is the voice activator, it really is very naff and hardly recognises a word I say of the preset commands. Apart from that it is still a very good product. I bought this with the Samsung sound bar and they combine very well with each other, great visuals and clear sounds. Would I recommend this TV? Very simply put, yes. 05 September 2013
