Smart TV recommendations - 40" region.


Established Member
Been out of the TV game for a while now, so no idea what there is around, what TVs are the best, what screens are an issue etc. so will be very grateful if anyone can give some recommendations.

I'm wanting a 40" TV, that will be connecting with a wireless NAS. Am wanting Freeview and Freesat built in, so I don't have boxes. It will be wall mounted in the bedroom.

Not sure about other features, anything else I guess would be a bonus.

- Access wireless NAS.
- Freesat, freeview built in.
- wall mountable.
- thin.

So what fits that bill?

So far the Samsung UE40ES6300 is what I'm looking at, but other recommendations preferably with a comparison to the Samsung would be appreciated.

Very few have freesat. Panasonic dt50 does but not sure if available in42". 42gt50 plasma also fits the bill

All of these are reviewed in the review section including the Samsung

Ok, freesat isn't essential. Could live without if it meant getting a better TV that the Samsung for similar/less money.

Will check out the review section.

I think the Samsung is in the £550 region. Maybe less if I hunt around. £700 is pushing it a bit too far to be honest, although it does seem pretty good from what I've just been reading. But the wife definitely won't let me spend that much on a TV!!
