Rated 4 out of 5 by Jim W from Great picture, however. TV is great however, with the cost of Virgin’s services going through the roof, not having access to Freeview as an app is very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andy Vee from Great All Round TV at reasonable price Purchased 3 weeks ago to replace an old TV that my Daughter took to her new flat ! This screen is a definite upgrade on all fronts. Connects to my existing Tuner and can manage the volume via the integrated remote using the correct HDMI Chanel, better picture, great Smart TV integration and Apps, faster response and deeper colours and blacks. Great advice from the staff at Romford who listened to my requirements and suggested buying a 2021 model rather than a 2022 model as was half the price and had all the features I needed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dude61 from Why can't they make the range all the same specs ! I recently got a PS5 and wanted to take advantage of 120 fps and VRR. Liked the look of this one and 50" is a nice size for my room. After setting it up i couldn't get what i was after. Spending hours surfing the internet i discovered that the 50" model is capped at 60fps and doesn't support VRR. It is a good tv but not what i was after.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MJ42 from Product and Service simply excellent Finally decided to swap my old Samsung TV which is still going strong although the OS is too old now and the smart features don’t work anymore. Needed a bigger screen and this was on offer. What a difference. The clarity is superb and it’s so easy to use. I now know why the the chap from Richer Sounds (who was also brilliant) said it was a good choice. It was delivered next day, bang on time and up and running in under half an hour. Really happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rottweiler from 48" v 55" Bought this as an upgrade for existing 48" tv with Freesat. After getting one or two very minor problems sorted we are extremely happy with the overall improvement, better picture, vastly improved sound from the extra speakers, and more importantly for us at our age(s) easier on the eyes in the constantly changing light conditions. If you want a good allround TV then you cannot really do better than Samsung.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joe Boy from Fabulous picture and sound. We needed a tv upgrade, so decided to seek advice from Richer Sounds, from where we’d bought our previous 2 tvs. Not only was there lots of choice, the value for money was unequalled. The 50” Samsung fulfills all our criteria, so we look forward to many years of enjoyment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by D Rose from Great when it's 4K It's brilliant when the programme is in 4K, but other programmes tend to look washed out and faces look a bit computerised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pajbills from Worth the extra cost I’ve always looked around for the best and cheapest deal based on screen size required between LG and Samsung. Experience has taught me you get what you pay for. Although these tvs were always great, the performance of the menus and navigation was always sub-par… not with this TV. We paid the extra £200 for the same size tv q80a instead of q60a, and wow, what a difference. Such an amazing piece of kit and picture quality is just astounding. Highly recommended

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kitbags from Alexa - does it work? Voice Sync poor Was excited to be able to control TV with Alexa. Guys that delivered TV said they were not happy to set it up Alexa as it was very complicated. They were right - still not working. Voice sink works on some channels but not on others - it a mini sec out - very irritating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by drewstew from Samsung TV QE50Q80A Purchased 10 March, delivered next day. Easy set up. 6yr guarantee gives peace of mind. Worth the extra step up from the 60 series to get 120mhz. Great picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zashta from Great TV I was told that Samsung’s customer service wasn’t great & this really put me off upgrading my 14 year old ‘Etcha-Sketcha’ Sony Bravia 32” basic TV to a 50” QLED Samsung Smart, all singing, all dancing, TV. However, on comparing quality of picture & sound, as well as, variety of features and because Richer Sounds’ offer a 6 year warranty, I decided it was worth the risk. Samsung really are top quality. I’m now loving my new TV & discovering something new it can do every day. I’m really please with my choice & with the peace of mind Richer Sounds gives ‘just in case’ anything goes wrong. Great value for money too. Excellent RS’s customer service, advice & support. Highly recommend both Richer Sounds and QE50Q80A Samsung TV.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stigwaethewig from Love it. Judder a bit of a downside. We bought this with and also the Q900A Soundbar. Picture and sound is outstanding. Perhaps the only downside it the judder with the image of using intelligent picture. The judder can be rather off putting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by VS123 from Local Dimming a nightmare Picture quality beyond 10degess from straight on is dire. Colors wash out. doesn't look like IPS screen that other screen sizes have, suspect its a cheap VA job Local dimming which simply ruins the iimage (50” Q80A QLED 4K HDR Smart TV
