Out of Stock currently at JL. Was going to go the same route. C6 is available at Currys but £1699 compared to the B6's £1599. Do RS pricematch discount codes?

E6v seems to remain stubbornly high - £2k. With this under £1,500 and no particular interest in 3D, is the extra £500 worth it?

the e6 has came down £200 in the last couple of weeks at £100 a time. can't see it dropping much further imo. at £1850 with code for the e6 is a very good price

Sorry, omitted code - difference is 3D, integral sound bar and picture on glass. Also different "chip". Any informed views?

informed views? I have one and it's a nice TV if your wanting to know what it's like

Exactly, I'd buy the 3D as a replacement for my 3D when it packs up at this price.

Quidco's T's & C's for Currys states: 'Cashback will not be paid in conjunction with any other offer, voucher or discount code unless listed on this page, or with any other discounts such as staff or student discounts'.

As it's not listed, I'd assume the additonal £50 wouldn't work.

The C6 is a cracking TV. Had mine about a month now and it's hands down the best TV I've ever owned.

Completely different technology. This is OLED. Hisense is Smart LED. Smart LED is basically glorified LCD just with per pixel backlighting. You're still hampered by LCD panel technology such as poor contrast ratio and viewing angles. OLED is far superior when it comes to picture quality. This is easily one of the best TVs for the money around right now. The only set in my opinion that comes close is the Samsung KS models but with that you're still going to fall foul of the trappings of LCD technology where true blacks are impossible with some dimwitted backlight response. Side by side the OLED55B6V just looks better. Blacks are actually black (because the OLEDs are actually turned off) whites are truly white (once calibrated, it does have a tendency to go towards blue spectrum on the colour temperature out of the box, but it's easily fixed).

Also 3D is dead. Fewer and fewer TVs are supporting it. It's only a matter of time before it disappears back into obscurity.

For HDR i've read that 10bit is better than 8bit. On the RS website it has this tv as " 10 bit (8 bit + FRC) " which from what I can tell is an 8bit panel which is is up-scaled? to show 10bit. Is it not best to just buy a TV that is pure 10bit HDR or doesn't it really matter?

Love it on my LG.

Watched the martian last night on my cheapo 55uh850, absolutely amazing. I'm actually annoyed that 3d was pushed 5 years too early on sh*tty 1080p screens, if it was launched now on these 4k sets it would have taken off.

Human eye won't be able to tell the difference between 8bit + FRC and 10 bit, although might be noticeable on certain shades of green depending on how well its implemented. 8bit is susceptible to banding if source material is 10bit or more, FRC helps mitigate that and on 4k streams from amazon or netflix due to compression used it won't look any worse than a true 10 bit screen.

Great TV. I bought the 65" at launch and it's been a stunning TV. I had the E6 before it (but returned it due to banding) and prefer the simple styling of the B6 if I'm honest. The under TV speaker on the E6 is OK, but not great and typically folk buying these TVs will also invest in a decent quality sound system as well. 3D is good on the E6 (if that's important), but to me it's a bit of a gimmick and wasn't really important.

The B6 has improved vastly with regard to several firmware updates (I worked with LG on the 4K HDR 24p stutter issue and that was solved a few months back) and now has low latency game modes and HDR game modes (around 24 ms).

There are still some uniformity issues on some panels (typically some minor vignetting, usually on the right - mine has some of this, but it is minor and rarely noticeable in content) and vertical banding (thankfully mine has none of this), but for less than £1500 this is a cracking TV.

uhmmm, with currys voucher and a 10% off , I can get it for a total of £145 off but ideally I prefer the c6 version at this price

I'm sure the c6 will drop to £1499 again soon. If you can sign up to perkbox just before (around £5 a month, cancel any time) as you get 8% off currys/pc world vouchers. Combined with your 10% and current voucher and you'll have practically stole it ;)

Thank you, but are we talking about a gift card / ordinary gift vouchers?? How can it be combined? currys gift vouchers are the same as a gift card. I might have confused you, I was talking about gift vouchers in denomination of £20's

I'm torn between b6 and the c6 - not because of 3 d but from reading up on both it appears the c6 with lg own soc the pq is marginally better and may get HLG update. Not that keen to be honest buying from Currys though

Also 3D is dead. Fewer and fewer TVs are supporting it. It's only a matter of time before it disappears back into obscurity.
The M7000 uses local backlight dimming which dims the LED backlight in zones. That's very different to 'per pixel dimming' which is what OLED gives you. I.e. each pixel has its own light source.
The B6V has a push towards green with an un-calibrated white balance too (ISF Expert modes), not blue.

I've had my B6V for about a month now and it is by far the best TV I've owned in terms of PQ. That's comparing calibrated displays too (Panasonic VT30 plasma & CX802b LED LCD for example). It gives the naturalness of plasma but with a much more 3D presentation to the images. The picture has so much depth because of the 'infinite contrast ratio' true black gives. That'll be the first thing you notice coming from any other display technology and they're all inferior if PQ is your primary concern.

That's a bit of a generalisation. Certain displays have issues with banding if they're fed content with a higher bit depth but, that's the same with certain native 10 bit displays too. I've not checked whether my B6v suffers from this as my sources can all be configured to output 10 bit per channel or less, so I've no need to. If it does, potential buyers will need to be careful with the choice of their source kit. Although, I believe even the 'troublesome' Panasonic UHD BD players can output at 10 bit per channel now?!
It's also worth mentioning that any display can suffer from banding if the content isn't particularly high quality or is compressed to death. There's a lot of that type of content out there.
