For those after a cheap TV and wanting to make as big a saving as possible, there's a simple rule of thumb; ignore smart TV. Yes, those apps for the BBC iPlayer, YouTube, Blinkbox, Netflix and Lovefilm are handy, but they generally add around £100 to the price of a TV.

But for every rule there's an exception that proves it; step forward the Samsung UE39F5300 39-inch Full HD LED TV, which is currently all yours for just £429.99 from Argos. That's down from the usual Argos price of £529.99, though Samsung's list price is as high as £579.99.

It's a small price for such a big screen, but it's the inclusion of Samsung's Smart Hub that adds value to this cheap TV. As well as the regular apps, Smart Hub is the only such platform to include ITV Player, 4OD and Demand 5 in addition to the common-as-muck BBC iPlayer.

The Samsung UE39F5300 is one of only two 39-inch TVs in the Samsung lineup for 2013, an all-new size for flat TVs that's the result of advances in how TV makers cut glass and now put less electronics on the edges. Cue slim bezels and more screen real estate, but at the same footprint as a 37-inch TV from 2012.

You can shed an extra £10 if you're prepared to forgo Smart Hub by heading for the step-down Samsung UE39F5000 from Tesco, why would you?

The Samsung UE39F5300 is a cheap TV - and an app-tastic opportunity at this discounted price.
