This sounds like a perfect excuse to upgrade your Samsung 4K TV

Buying a new 4K and 8K TV from Samsung just got even more tempting. That’s because the South Korean firm is currently offering customers who buy one of its new televisions the chance to take delivery of a shiny new HW-T400 soundbar without paying a penny extra.

This free speaker promotion is available now when purchasing any QLED TV model over 55 inches. The deal, which means you’ll be able to upgrade the sound system in your home as well as the visuals, runs until August 11, 2020.

Samsung’s HW-T400 is a solid soundbar, but you can also upgrade to something more powerful at a discounted price if you want to seriously upgrade movie nights at home while we’re all being encouraged to stay inside.

As part of this promotion, TV customers can get a Q Series soundbar from just £200 – a pretty big saving off these premium audio devices, which can cost as much as £799 when bought from the Samsung online store.

If you are thinking of buying a new TV, Samsung has recently released some advice that’s definitely worth taking note of. More and more of us are switching over to much bigger televisions but it’s vital that you get a sense of size before rushing to the shops to pick up you cinema-style telly.

If you’re unsure how a big-screen TV would look in your home, Samsung is now recommending customers make a dummy version before heading to their local tech superstore. And don’t panic – you won’t need a giant lump of plastic to check out how things are going to look in your living room.

The easiest way to check size is via painter’s (masking) tape with this household item making it simple and cheap to create an outline of the TV you’re thinking of buying on your wall for reference.

It’s important to make sure that the display you choose will offer you the most immersive experience possible. But if it’s too big for the size of the room then watching the screen could actually end up being uncomfortable.

While it all boils down to personal preference, Samsung has provided a simple formula that provides a good starting point: Viewing distance (in inches)/2 = recommended TV size.

For example, if you sit 10 feet from your current television – that equates to 120 inches. Divide that by two – as per the formula you get 60-inches (120/2 = 60).

So, in this scenario, the maximum screen size that Samsung would recommend for your living room would be 60 inches (and remember, that’s the diagonal measurement of the screen). Most modern TVs are expected to last from between 5 to 10 years, so ensuring you buy the right model is important as you could be stuck watching it for a long time.
