Samsung’s slick looking SAMSUNG 50" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV doesn’t just offer a lot of picture for the price, it’s also one of the smartest TVs you can buy for under £450 right now.

The TV is currently on sale in Currys PC World’s end of season sale, down from £379 to a very affordable £349.

Why we love it

The brand’s easy to use Tizen smart platform borders on brilliant. It comes with all the mainstream catch-up TV services – that’s BBC iPlayer, My5, All4 and ITV Hub – as well as a huge selection of streaming apps, including Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+, Apple TV, Now TV and TV Plus, Samsung's own channel collection.

Long story short: you won’t be short of telly to binge.

There’s also AirPlay 2 support, great news for Apple users that want to stream and share content from their iPhones and iPads, while Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant offer simple voice control. It’ll even work with smart home devices sold under Samsung’s SmartThings banner.

Being a Samsung, the smart TV is an impressive picture performer. It’s 4K HDR enabled, ensuring sharp, vibrant images come movie night.

There’s a bunch of image modes (in our experience of Samsung TVs, Natural offers the punchiest pictures for general viewing), as well as a brilliant Game enhancement mode, which when selected minimises processing delay to ensure you won’t be slow on the draw when the console action hots up.

If you’re looking for a low cost, high performance 4K TV, we reckon this is a very smart deal.

What the reviews say

And it seems like owners agree, earning the set an impressive 9 out of 10 rating from Currys buyers, and hundreds of enthusiastic reviews, which have racked up to over 1,175 comments.

Here’s what the reviews say:

  • “Picture and sound are really good for the price”
