Afternoon!

Looking at investing in a good smart 4K HDR TV this week, aiming for a 60''.

I understand the 8 bit/10 bit argument, so obviously a 10 bit would be more 'future-proof'. Difficult to find recommended sets apart from the Samsung UE60KS7000 which breaks the £1k barrier. Are there any good equivalents around?

Would appreciate any advice!

The 8bit/10bit dr debate is valid to some degree but not what some would have you think, a quality 8bit panel using dithering produce results that will blow you away just as much as a 10bit panel, a bigger issue for me would be making sure you get a screen with great uniformity and no serious flaws more so than avoiding 8bit, im telling you this from a viewpoint of owning both types, if you're looking to spend under a grand make sure you do consider the Panasonic dx750 in 58 inch https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Dx750+58&sa=X&biw=396&bih=595&tbs=vw:l&tbm=shop&prmd=svni&srpd=6202467904795490387&prds=epd:17921857720114058997,paur:ClkAsKraXxNgwInFHZ59WP3OcRpALquS9VUG8HbgO4byUJRY1R9A3b0NPjjHs1Ps9pdFNL9eSEabz-cQx4RgIdXDbX93Rl7sMMsjxaXyieXbUVHz9O2pwGiahxIZAFPVH71VaTvAfOgSjV6uWeKHaQpzGaW3mA,cdl:1,cid:995165873228441772&ved=0ahUKEwiJm5uR7r7QAhVrIcAKHaY8ACEQgTYI1AE Just my advice after owning a 800/ series Samsung with dreadful backlight issues and bow owning a 65 inch dx750 which impresses just as much.

Many thanks, it's an absolute minefield trying to spot a recommended one!

I know its not 60" but for the quality you get out of it whats 5 inches and its true 10bit, also has dolby vision

currently £899 but you can get them to go lower also if you take the after care for £3 they tend to knock on money and you can cancel that after the first month, I have the 49" one and my mate has this model. The quality is outstanding.

Is the LG one definitely 10 bit

I think you can safely assume anything advertised as HDR will take a 10-bit signal and as Wild said whether it's a 10-bit panel or not is a tiny difference that'll get lost in the much bigger differences.

For example the 850v has just four backlight zones, is lit from one edge and only has a peak brightness of 550cd/m². You're far more likely to notice that next to a top of the range HDR TV than you are whether the panel is 8-bit or 10-bit.

A KS8000 or an older one?

Stick with sets that have Premium UHD certification it at least ensures the set meets the minimum requirements that make HDR effective most of the major manufacturers have signed into this agreement to be honest entry level is what you mentioned the Samsung KS range.

here is a good break down of 4k tvs for this year based on price
http://www.whathifi.com/best-buys/tvs/best-4k-tvs

but if your going to break the bank and go over £1K I would suggestthe ks8000

and yes the LG is 10bit and is also quantum dot display
