agree compared sony panasonic lg and samsung I have decided to go for samsung ue 75000 just waiting for further price drop for it
#11
not a huge fan of the spec of the Pannys.....but waiting for the price of the large Samsungs to drop or maybe the Oled prices being a bit more sensible....would love an 85 inch one on my wall as it is big enough for one. Currently have a 60 inch Kuro which is still amazing...but cos the bezel is so big, a 75 inch isn't going to be that much bigger...so its got to be an 85

Im after the 830v as the 850v is still abit pricy but ive heard it doesnt have the webos, anyone know different?
#15
you need a large stand for this due to the placement of the feet, these are 45 inches end to end

Does this accept 4K netflix and you tube? Also does it have hdmi 2?

yes to all

Just a heads up, if you find one in stock ask for a discount. I got £25 discounted for taking out the £7.50pm extra cover (Total £781 with first month fee) but you can cancel within 14 days for a full refund of the first payment, making the price £774.99

Also reserve & collect is over £10 through Top Cashback and you can get £10 statement credit if using an Amex card.
#23
As far as I can make out it has 3x hdmi sockets. 1 is arc so if you have a sounbar ect your down to 2x hdmi, then only one of them is hdmi2.0 so you have one input that can give you 4k at 60hz
#24
If you are not bothered about 4K (considering the limited content and the fact SD channels will look really poor on a 4K resolution) then consider going for the LB731 from RGB direct I paod 699 for a 55" with Web OS and all the bells and trimmings and pretty happy with it.

If anyone's bought this TV its worth noting the Curry's website says it has webOS which it doesn't, its mentioned in the cream coloured box at top of page beside images and above price.

Not an expert but think this could be classified as product not as described under the Sale of Goods Act so maybe worth contacting Curry's customer services and make a fuss about returning it, may get something out of it, worth a punt!

Oh and make sure you have a big enough TV stand if using one as the legs on it are WIDE apart need a 1200mm wide unit.
#29
Do not like the fixed stand on these models,prefer a swivel stand,deal breaker for me.

Was in Curry yesterday and stumbled past the TV's... I was immediately drawn to the Panasonic TX55AS640B.

http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/tv-dvd-blu-ray/televisions/large-screen-tvs-32-and-over/panasonic-viera-tx-55as640b-smart-3d-55-led-tv-22096720-pdt.html

It easily looked the nicest picture of all those on display.... jaw droppingly good in my non-expert opinion, reviews seem to be excellent with some experts stating that it's likely this will yield better image quality that 4K UHD until that technology is further developed (at the moment it seems SD video looks hideous on 4K and upscalling of 1080p (especially games can cause lag). Also the reviews mention how deep and dark the blacks on the the Panasonic are thanks to the panel technology and "local dimming" of dark pixels. The same reviews did also mention slight stutter on some 50hz inputs, that can be reduced/removed with image processing, so further research suggests that it may be a hardware issue which is a great shame, it did look absolutely amazing to me and I was very very tempted.

I jumped on the 3D bandwagon quite early an still have a 50" Samsung 3D plasma... the image quality is still great in my opinion but the damn thing gets so hot and screen burn in annoys my missus. Sadly widespread 3D adoption has stalled, another shame because I really enjoy watching 3D stuff. I wont be jumping on 4K at least for a year I think, much of what we watch is still SD and if there's lag on other stuff such a Playstation games running at 1080P then that would massively annoy me.
#31
What I find truly hilarious is when people buy a 4K TV and watch 720x576 Standard Definition on their shiny new TV then proceed to moan about the picture quality being rubbish on their 4K TV.

Some people have no understanding about resolution and scaling but if you thought SD content on 1080p televisions looks shoddy then just imagine how worse SD stretched to 4K will look.

so for another 100 quid you could have got UHD.. I've got the 850v and SD does not look poor, I have no idea how you came to that conclusion it doesn't make any sense?
things like viewing camera pictures and playing Xbox are amazing. content may be limited now but that's normal while they are still getting the TV's in people's homes, next year you will see a lot more 4k blu ray and internet availability also mobiles record in 4k now. the difference really is massive and it will be standard soon enough, and you can enjoy upscaling on stuff in the mean time.

Actually it makes a lot of sense of you understand scaling and how resolution works.

If you ask any normal person how does SD compare to HD they will tell you HD is better. This is down to the resolution.

If you ask any normal person does SD look crappy on a HD set they will say yes (in comparison to HD).

SD channels upscaled to 4K will look even worse than SD upscaled to 1080p so I suggest you get your eyes tested.

In the future I will get a 4K tv when there is enough content to warrant an upgrade and by that time I wild of upgraded again anyway and no doubt be able to get an OLED 4K TV at a sensible price.

There are also plenty of gamers who notice minor resolution differences between Xbox one and PS4 so the fact you can't notice your game being upscaled 4x from its native resolution says it all really.

How does this TV compare with the http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/tv-dvd-blu-ray/televisions/large-screen-tvs-32-and-over/lg-55ec930v-smart-3d-55-curved-oled-tv-10071516-pdt.html#cat-0 ?

I am a complete TV novice.

Is OLED better than UHD 4K?

And if it is better, how much better? I'm just thinking £800 Vs £2500 is an easy decision if i dont know what im looking at.

Thanks everyone!

Lol there's nothing wrong with my eyes or the sd picture on my TV, I think you've got confused somewhere along the line. The only reason SD upscaling would be any worse on a 4k screen than a HD screen is if the 4k screen was a bigger size or a poorer quality TV. 4k screens actually give more bit depth in each pixel so colours are better and you actually see more in shadows and bright scenes. If you had one you would understand, put a blu ray on and it's like having an extra window in the room.
There no need to get narky just because you've paid nearly the same amount for an inferior TV :p

For anyone who has just or is about to buy a 4k TV, if you watch a lot of SD programmes you do need to remember they are set up ready to watch blu rays and HD channels so you really do have to adjust a bunch of picture settings to get it looking good.
#39
Researched this TV a lot a few weeks ago & it's a low end 4k set which is not very good at all.

You are best off with a high end 1080P set (Sony W8 etc). I know this is generalising some what, but I couldn't find a TV under £1400 which was good enough to invest in over the Sony W8.

Did you read that from a manufacturers website?
Actually a SD channel on a 4K tv will have to stretch over far more pixels on a 4K screen tjhan a 1080p screen.
Only on a 1:1 pixel mapping with the TV's native resolution of a 4k screen will it look better than 1080p.

lmao i have seen 4K sets and without 4K content running on them they are simply worse for watching SD content.

Whats next, you going to tell me my 64" Samsung D8000 Plasma has worse blacks than an LED TV? muwhahahaha!

You should get a job at Currys, your knowledge is on par with them and my apologies if you already work for them.

Happy New Year! :p
