Just took the plunge. Thanks OP.
No issues with this TV and the HDR looks good. Only thing I dislike is the game mode isn't as good as older models.

How do I get there? I'll give you a fiver.
ah you missed the deal for the Currys time machine? had a lifetime warranty.... if you can return it to the time & date of purchase.
Mr_Mister
Great price.
I'm looking for a Sony TV mainly for the in built Android OS but I have heard it can be laggy.
Any feed back on the Sony TVs please?


Can confirm the OS can be laggy (I have the very similar 49" XD83 model), however for the most part works well enough. This is my main gripe with the set, followed closely by the light bleed (it's a lottery, my friend has same model with no bleed). However, for the price, build and picture quality it's hard to beat. I've kept mine for this reason despite the above issues and knowing full well the "HDR" presented is a poor representation of what can be achieved.

I don't have a PS4 Pro (yet) but the standard PS4 looks amazing on it.
Bad TV with terrible light bleed. Returned 2.

Was hoping they might have put a car charger in the deal
I'm looking for one too.
I'll be travelling to a hot country for holiday, so is there any good car chargers that's recommended?

Someone posted one recently that's quite compact and sits flush in the cigarette socket and has two charging ports but some reviews say it sits too snug and can be hard to remove if you need to take it out.
Will see if I can find it and post it on here for you

It curves the wrong way. What's the point of a monitor that I can't see from the side? cold

You point the monitor towards you rather than having it face away LOL.

thomasedenbrow
Thank you very much OP, I've been after a curved Ultra wide ever since I broke my 29 inch LG ultra wide but never seen one for less then 350. Personally, 21:9 is one of the best innovations to come to PC gaming in a long time, i just wish more developers would support it.

Its good to know it was worthwhile posting! The worst thing about these monitors is that they make other 16:9 screens look square/4:3 haha! The curve is very subtle on the LG model I have (I did get it cheaper than the flat one so I'm not too bothered) but on the Samsung it is a greater curve, it is probably in the sweet spot of improving the view without being distracting.
Scottc123
1080p vertical resolution looks awful at that size, but might be OK for gaming if you are OK with a maximum refresh rate of 60 Hz (many are not).

Height wise, 21:9 29 inch is close to a 24 inch 16:9. So a vertical of 1080 may be more acceptable.

The LG version of the monitor is a 75Hz monitor and has FreeSync. For a higher res and refresh rate you are going to be paying a lot to get it in combo with ultrawide + curved. :(
zizzles
It's good because it's expensive.
It's typical for any monitor other than than the most basic 16:9 flat panel to be voted cold.

£120 discount over normal and £50 cheaper than ever...it would be a lot better if people who don't have a clue didn't vote so anyone that wants the deal could see it.

Got this delivered yesterday, paid £14.05!!!! , phoned customer service , and asked to refund deference, told me to reorder at £8.00 and return the previous one for a refund, I said won't it be easier , just too refund the deference , saves everyone the messing about, driver , fuel , etc, wouldn't do it , any way reordered it, for £8, and put the reason for return was " not intended for the purpose", which was £0.00, otherwaise I would have had to pay return postage .

Been using Evergreen for years- however bought this Proctors feed, weed and moss killer and applied it a month ago and lawn now looks best it has for years.https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B009G020XU/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Very expensive compared to the treatment in this deal though.
The Evergreen is £8 for 7kg, that other one is £30 for 20kg. That's £1.14/kg vs £1.5/kg, so yes it's more expensive but not horrifyingly so!
Its now £8 at amazon too.

i bought mine a few months back in Sainsburys for 12 and I thought that was expensive. I assume it's the cheapest ATM?
Lakeland also do them at 12 every few months. Over 17 quid is way too much (sorry Op).
£20.99 from them at the moment though

True, and if you really need one now, I guess it's the best price out there.
yeah this is ridiculously overpriced. I'm holding out for when they drop to £10. i'm sure they will by summer time. they will be very unseasonal by then

Seen this for £8 in sainsburys
All around me are familiar faces, worn out places, worn out faces,
Bright and early for their daily races, going nowhere, going nowhere.

Great film. Average price.

How does this edition compare with the regular Blu-ray?
Yes quite right. I forgot that such things exist and people can actually buy 4K disks! Corrected.
4k restoration but not the 4k version it's still just the Blu-ray Disk not UHD disk. But good deal none the less.

I went looking and found the needrom entries which you were referencing too.
With respect to official firmware, the malware and advertising seems to pop up
much later through wacky apps installed despite whatever setting in Security to disallow
external apps to be installed.
I looked in AmazonUK and saw other deals for this model at £68 if anyone else wants
to try to try themorgatron route. Sorry if I put anyone off but this would require some
technical ability.

Hows LineageOS on it?

There's a guide to install TWRP and root here.

Then lot's of custom roms can be found here or here.

It's not perfect - the stock camera app crashes occasionally, and so far I can't seem to get the flashlight to work. Otherwise it run's very quickly, with no dodgy ads or malware.

I don't know whats wrong with these cold voting dingleberries

It may be that they value phones with decent multi touch. This has issues, as does the last Doogee I owned. Great phones except for patchy multitouch. It made GPS software almost unusable.

Wasn't that impressed with this film, I didn't find it that amusing nor that compelling.
Not sure why you would not want to watch a DVD on a modern TV nowadays when the Bluray experience is so much better. I guess great price for a DVD for those that are willing to accept the quality (or lack of it) but I will pass thank you.
For the genre, it's definitely a good film but I preferred the out and out comedy of what we do in the shadows.
Top film!

I've always fancied one and purchased one from argos a few weeks ago. It was surprisingly good although felt like a child's watch, so I returned it and went for the pebble time steel. I absolutely love it. I've owned various smart watches in the past (though not the iwatch) and the best one was my Sony smart watch 3, with the longest (at least 3 day) battery life. I changed the strap to seel one from ebay for only £7 and must confess that, in my opinion, this is the best smart watch around. It works just like any other smart watch, alerting you to notifications, including WhatsApp allows use of navigation, has voice recognition to reply to messages, etc. However the best bit is the battery like - a solid*(minimum) 7 days (I don't seem to get the 10 days that they advertise. I hope this help anyone that is considering one of these.
this post got me looking at the pebble 2 as well... does anyone know whether the pebble 2 is backwards compatible with classic apps?

Founded in 1994 by Jeff Bezos, Amazon was, at first, simply an online bookseller, but in the late 1990s, the company began to expand its product range beyond books alone, and also began to offer various other services, such as Amazon Marketplace, launched in 2000. It was a service that let customers sell second-hand books, DVDs, music and other products.
