Still can't decide if the SAMSUNG UE55KS7000 is worth the extra money.... But the LG at this price seems very tempting!!

The Samsung is definitely worth the extra but finding stock is hard.. The LG TV's seem to suffer from bad back lighting (Unless you go OLED) You can see the lights turning on and off in the background and it is distracting as hell.

I've seen the 49" for £740, so you'd say size for size, its worth the extra £150?

it's showing £629 for me, is there a code to enter at checkout?

You could also look at the 49XD8077 - recently sold for the same price?

The Samsung is around £300 more so it should be better, Although you might want to get a extended warranty if you go for the Sammy as alot of people have reported the back of the tv coming off and light leaking out the sides and eventually the tv refusing to turn on.

XD80 has no local dimming so as far as HDR is concerned it's a non runner.

Ks7000 would be a step up Or £649 for a Hisense 55m7000 would also be better

I'm sure my 43" xd80 has.

If you have a Richer Sounds store nearby, call up the local store and ask if they have the Hisense 50M3300 (50" 4K) in stock, £419 with 6 year warranty.

How does that compare to the h55m6600 for £470? From what I can gather this or the Hisense 50M5500 seem to be 10 bit panels

Comparison here of the LG, Samsung and Hisense.

http://www.displayspecifications.com/en/comparison/8058a469

Samsung looks pretty much the best set as expected. Hisense looks pretty awful with its slow pixel response time of 8ms meaning a maximum 480 interpolation rate which compares very badly. Must be quite a low spec panel. Likely to have juddering and be less smooth.

Wouldn't buy this LG because for me the main reason to consider a LG is passive 3D and this set doesn't have it. Wouldn't buy the Hisense because it looks pretty low spec. The Samsung is the easy winner here. There may be better comparisons that can be made even alternative Hisense models which would compare more favourably.

No joke there is no local dimming on any set in the XD80 range as far as Sony sets it's the XD93 range where HDR is effective.The Samsung KS range is still the cheapest entry into functional HDR.

Not sure the Hisense 5500/6600 (or any brand) uses a true 10bit panel at this price (they cost £1K+), probably what they call a 8+2 (FRC) bit panel, also check out the Samsung KU6400 sets which IMO looks better than the LG sets I've seen at £350-£600 price range.
The new Samsung QLED TVs for 2017 is expected this March if you can wait that long.

Meh just looked online, think your right about it not having local dimming but according to rtings.com the ks8000 has local dimming score of 3 out of 10. That tv is more than twice the price of mine so not bothered.

The only local dimming tvs that seem to be any good are the oled tvs but that's 3x as much as my tv.

Think I can live without it.

I have a ks8000 and it's a beast, blows any of these sets away. It's 9/10 reviews everywhere. Or did you mean ks7000 . Local dimming best I have seen on a Samsung and best blacks and sound. I compared to the oled in the shop and I couldn't tell the difference. I preferred the picture on the ks8000 to the oled so bought it. Price wasn't a factor in the choice. It might have been samsungs demo is far better than lg's space one but in that shop the Samsung looked better.

Us ks8000 = uk ks7000

All Samsung rated poorly bar the JS9500 for local dimming.

OLED seem to blow it away in that respect.

Just read the reviews for the OLED on RTINGS and they are rated 10 as they say OLED don't need local dimming so that's why they are rated the best.

They obviously still don't think highly about the KS9000 and KS8000 for some reason.

Personally i have never liked the rtings site and find avforums and hdtvtest to be of a far higher standard they both contradict rtings and for even the entry level KS7000 give it very good reviews,it is unfortunate that manufacturers are putting HDR onto sets that have no real capability i suppose it's up to the consumer to do a bit of digging before jumping into a purchase and with the 49 inch KS7000 retailing at £850 it is exceptional value considering similar specced sets from it's rivals.

When playing Forza horizen 3 on my xbox one s the HDR on my xd80 is fantastic, outstanding even. Turn hdr off and it's a massive drop it quality. Same goes for ultra hd movies as well.

To say tvs like mine dont really have HDR capabilities is so far from the truth. And for £500 you wouldn't find a better tv for the price imo.

The specifications don't lie the XD80 is what it is a very capable 4K set with limited HDR capability it can't match up to entry level UHD premium sets and for the price range it is in the LG this post is about has a little more to offer in terms of HDR rendering.

Saw the XD8599 in Costco last night. I've seen Christmas cards with better speakers. I mean literally. Unusable even at normal volume for speech. Out of interested I tested a 2nd Sony (7xxx - didn't pay attention to what) and again awful sound.
Currently we have a Samsung plasma (Black Friday 2011, when BF discounts were genuinely <half price). The sound on that is good enough I've never bought a sound bar.
I'd avoid the Sony 100% unless you are definitely using an external sound source.

Most modern TVs will have crappy sound due to how slim they are. Modern TVs should be used with a soundbar
