Been looking around for some 55 inch tellys and have been told getting a 10-bit screen (8 bit upscaled) is important for future proofing and use of true HDR.

Looks like a decent deal to me, 949 quid but with the LSTV30 code at checkout you can get the thirty quid off making it £919!

If anyone has any experience of this TV would be great to hear what you think. I've still not bitten, just thought it was a good deal to share.

I'd be intrigued as well. Especially in regard to PS4 pro. Sony seems to suggest a 60" tell upwards but is 55" upwards ok? or should I be aiming for 60"

I suppose it would depend on how big your room is/how far away you'll be away from the screen. I'd have thought 55 inch would be more than enough to take advantage of a 4k screen resolution though!

ive also had my eye on this model, waiting for it to drop below the 850 mark though.. im sure it will on black friday soon!
#4
Is this or the SAMSUNG UE60KS7000 better both in my tv budget and will be used for my ps4 pro when arrives.

super, ultra, mega hdr.
what will it be next?
#6
its actually 8-bit panel that can upscale to make it look like a 10-bit.
http://www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/75d0423

its like watching BBC Eastenders on the 4k hdr tv but its not filled in 4k or hdr..
Eastenders is filled at 1080p max! but all your tv doing is upscaling to 4k...

I have been looking at these tv for long time now, i will only bite sub £750... nothing more at this time!

Came here to post this. Great work

I would pay the extra and get a tv with a 10bit panel like the Samsung KS8000 series

the KS7000 series are also 8bit panels and won't display the full colour range for hdr pay the extra and future proof with a KS8000

The ks7000 has a 10 bit panel from all of my research and from the Samsung website.

I hope so as I bought the 55 inch version last night for £1180 using the 10% off at Currys

I have checked numerous sources and the 7000 does have a 10-bit panel

Anyone buying a TV now is nuts, wait a few weeks & grab the Black Friday/Xmas run in bargains.....

spend the bit extra for the KS7000, its UHD Premium certified.

Also going to cost an extra £199 for the equivalent JL or RS warranty.
#13
Not sure why they keep saying you need 60 inch to be able to view it see the difference of a 4K tV , monitors of 1440p and 4K at 27" you can see the difference all be it you are sitting close. I have a 49" 4K and see the difference from normal sitting distance.

A lot comes down to the persons vision too , if you have good eye sight e,g 20/20 you will notice things people with diminished vision will not.

Onto the tv , it's not bad for the price but if you want real good 4K HDR get a 10 bit panel , Samsung k7000 upwards or a oled if you can stretch to that extra money then you get HDR hdr10 and if you go LG oled you get Dolby vision too.

http://www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/02f2431 it has to have 10bit processing not a 10bit panel to be UHD premium. the 7000 series are 8bit panels which use 8+2 dither to emulate 10bit output. Fact.

Sorry bud but the 7000 series can process 10bit signals (it has the internals) but the screen panel is 8bit with 2 bit dithering which only emulates 10bit output. I have read the same sites but they are wrong, it is not a 10 bit panel, even the Samsung website does not say it is a 10bit panel. What it says is 10bit support. The set is UHD premium certified but that only requires the tv process 10bit not that it has a 10bit panel (Google uhd premium and read the article on 'what is uhd premium'). Bottom line is that the 7000 series is surely a good tv but it is not true HDR10 because it can only emulate 10bit (Google 8bit dithering to see an example of what dithering is in the images). If you want to future proof buy a 10bit panel at least. KS8000 series and above or equivalent such as the Sony XD9305.

It is UHD premium certified and it is hdr1000 (which for the uninitiated means that it can produce 1000 nits of brightness) but it is not a 10bit panel. See my previous reply.

The ks7000 in U.K. Is the ks8000 in USA, and they are 10bit panels. All suhd panels are. The panel in the ks7000 and ks8000 are the same, just backlighting differences. I think where you google things, you get USA ks8000 info, which in fact relates to ks7000 U.K. The 7000 model in USA is assume relates to 6000 models in U.K.

I've been looking to get one of the KS series TV's (decided to wait for black friday just in case) but all the reviews of the euro ks7000 indicate that it's the same as the US ks8000, and indeed does have a 10 bit panel. You claim all these reviews are wrong, but only provide one source to say it's an 8-bit display.

The point claiming the Samsung site indicates 10-bit support is true, but the same applies to the KS8000 spec on the Samsung site. I don't take that to mean the KS8000 emulates 10-bit either.

I too am happy to be proven wrong, because it's better to be informed than ignorant. I just don't understand why all reviews for the euro KS7000 state 10 bit panel when the spec sheet you point out suggests 8-bit.

Looking at them (ks7000 and ks8000) side by side in store I guess it's difficult to justify the ~£250 price difference on what is already a relatively expensive tv.

I have had this TV for a few months now. Wouldn't recommend it I'm afraid as my particular set suffers from terrible dirty screen effect when watching any sport with a uniform background. Watching in HD or 4K makes no difference and this would seem to be a common fault with this particular model.

The ks7000 has a 10 bit panel from all of my research and from the Samsung website.
I hope so as I bought the 55 inch version last night for £1180 using the 10% off at Currys
I have checked numerous sources and the 7000 does have a 10-bit panel
http://www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/02f2431 it has to have 10bit processing not a 10bit panel to be UHD premium. the 7000 series are 8bit panels which use 8+2 dither to emulate 10bit output. Fact.
Some sites say 10 bit some say 8 bit i might message the samsung facebook page and ask i did this with a older tv i brought and they reply quickly.
Sorry bud but the 7000 series can process 10bit signals (it has the internals) but the screen panel is 8bit with 2 bit dithering which only emulates 10bit output. I have read the same sites but they are wrong, it is not a 10 bit panel, even the Samsung website does not say it is a 10bit panel. What it says is 10bit support. The set is UHD premium certified but that only requires the tv process 10bit not that it has a 10bit panel (Google uhd premium and read the article on 'what is uhd premium'). Bottom line is that the 7000 series is surely a good tv but it is not true HDR10 because it can only emulate 10bit (Google 8bit dithering to see an example of what dithering is in the images). If you want to future proof buy a 10bit panel at least. KS8000 series and above or equivalent such as the Sony XD9305.
Ok thanks for the reply at least i know now.

The ks7000 in U.K. Is the ks8000 in USA, and they are 10bit panels. All suhd panels are. The panel in the ks7000 and ks8000 are the same, just backlighting differences. I think where you google things, you get USA ks8000 info, which in fact relates to ks7000 U.K. The 7000 model in USA is assume relates to 6000 models in U.K.
I am happy to be proven wrong. Please provide evidence/links that a) the UK KS7000 is in fact the us KS8000 and b) that it 100% has a 10bit panel not 8bit + frc. All the links I have posted above to displayspecificatios show that the KS7000 is a 220-240volt 8bit panel tv that can display a billion colours only by emulation. Cheers
Had a message back from samsung and they can confirm its a 10 bit panel.


Same bud. I have had them confirm that the KS7000 in the UK is 10bit and it is the KS8000 in the USA. It is the KS6000 that has an 8bit panel.


agreed, my own research also supports this.
this may not mean much to the aficionados .. but it may help someone out there.

Panic over for all ks7000 owners.

Seems like ks7000 is the best bet for a reasonably priced 10 bit panel then!
