Samsung UE55KS7000 55 Inch 4k 10 Bit HDR Tv £929.99 @ Powerdirect

First post, be gentle. I've been looking for weeks and this is currently cheaper than currys, if you ignore the 5 year warranty, which IMO is worthless from such a useless retailer. Lets hope

Powerdirect are horrendous. I never rant on the internet about poor companies, but I would highly recommend you avoid these clowns.

Ive been lucky in life with purchases and retailers being swift in the event of any problems, but Powerdirect more than made up for any suffering I had avoided in my lifetime. Bought an over off them, broke not long after purchase, took close to a year and a half and legal action for them to replace the oven. They would pretend to send engineers and parts and were impossible to get answers out of. If I ever had to get in touch with someone for answers, they would tell me the single person in charge was not available and would call me back, weeks at a time id wait, with me calling back hoping they were available.

I'm looking at purchasing 65KS8000 is there much difference between the KS7000 & 8000?
ks7000 is a 8bit panel, the stand is on both ends of the set and it has common issues with the back plastic getting hot and coming away.
the ks8000 is a 10bit panel with a centred stand, also has a more premium finish with no faults.
im waiting for a good price on the 55KS8000 this week
​it's a 10 bit panel. this has been discussed several times already and it's been confirmed by samsung. I don't understand why this misinformation keeps popping up. also the plastic and case issues is also seen on the ks8000. What I would say is what's the big deal. If you have warranty and it happens it will get replaced. hence why I bought from RS 6 year warranty
It won't get "replaced" the plastic case will be merely glued back on.


​there you go it's sorted. does it really matter if it's glued in a samsung factory or in your home. :D

Give that child a gold star for his maths

I'd have thought someone calling themselves goonerfan would have a great sense of humour but it would appear no to be so (_;)
tempted with this tv would just like it nearer 1k . its getting there

a great deal not sure why the cold votes.. some people just vote without even knowing about the item unfortunately. this is a 1200-1300 tv people! i am personally after the 55" KS8000 so im waiting for a sub £1000 price on that
Hey, for interest what's your personal choice with the ks8000 over the ks7000? Considering the price difference ...
I've personally been interest in LG Oled 4k tv's, waiting my opportunity to catch a deal. Preferably i would want the better to best model. Though i'm not paying 4 grand for a tv that will be half or less the price in 9 months to a year. Twenty second google search OLED55B6V £2250. Though i would prefer a better model E or G ...
been doing a lot of research this week as im in the hunt for a nice new 4k tv to compliment the ps4 pro next month.. the KS7000 and KS8000 are near enough identical performance wise except the KS8000's screen is able to get brighter, which in return provides slightly better HDR.
im also very interested in the LG OLED tvs.. the more i research the more i seem to be willing to spend haha i wouldnt go for the B6 model as the EG9600 (last years OLED) is still a great tv at HALF the price of the new B,C,E models (all the same except C6 is curved, E6 has built in soundbar)
im personally hoping for a EG9600 bargain on black friday.. otherwise it will be the KS7000 or KS8000
Playstation 4 Pro and a 4k tv ... That's why im in it at the moment as you. Black Friday it is then :)
forgot to state another big reason i would rather the KS8000 is because the stand and design are FAR superior. the KS7000 has a lot of issues where the back plastic starts coming away as the glue gets hot and the feet are either end which sucks to me. the KS8000 has a different back panel and has a much better centred stand!
seriously think the tv im gonna get now is the KS8000.. OLED can wait 5 years it will be something even better by then lol looking forward to the PS4 pro coming so i can play a few weeks on my 1080p tv then switch to the 4K and be amazed :) feel free to add my PSN by the way: Chelseapaul

Okay you'll be my first add when I'm up and running, see you on the ps4 network :)

I have done plenty of research into buying a new 4K TV, specifically for the ps4 pro but also to be fairly future-proof and a solid performer for watching TV and films, and this is the TV model to get if you're after best performance for the best value.
This TV is the unks8000 in the US, which gets incredible reviews. For some odd reason, over here and in Europe, all of samsungs models are 1000 less?!? Therefore the ks8000 over here is actually the ks9000 in the US. Ikr!
Anyway, this is definitely a bonfide 10 bit panel regardless of screen size, and come Black Friday I'll defo be in the lookout for the 55". The rule is bigger the better when it comes to 4K, especially utilising HDR for gaming, but 60" is just too damn big for my living room.
And if anybody is interested in an incredibly helpful and knowledgeable review (along with the multiple model numbers for the doubters, towards the bottom of the review) give this a read...http://uk.rtings.com/tv/reviews/samsung/ks8000

ive spent far too much time on that website these past few days hehe
TV seems to be really good.
was looking at 55inch telly's and from.reviews and spec alone the 7000 series in the UK seem to be a good choice. was also looking at hisense 55m7000 as well.

10 bit display
where did you get that information from?

I just checked online and it states its a 8 bit display panel?
???


AVForums said this "​As with all the SUHD TVs from Samsung this year, the KS7500 uses a 10-bit VA panel, along with quantum dot for a wider colour gamut and it supports HDR 10 with a peak brightness of 1,000nits" ... Haha not sure if they are wrong though..
Isn't this UHD Premium? And has HDR? I Thought that meant it was a 10-bit panel...

Too big for my bedroom. :(
I bought this model recently (via John Lewis price match). I've upgraded the software but there are still a few occasional bugs (which a restart sorts out). Overall, I'm generally impressed and I'm fairly confident future updates will resolve some of the remaining bugs.

I'm planning to purchase a 4K tv at some point so will see how I get on with Android an make my decision probably around this time next year when today's newest models are at rock bottom prices.

​I will not recommend buying it . it's very heavy and few of these tv's have wireless adapter issue so wifi connectivity doesn't work and you can get better brand good picture quality in this price.

This is the cheapest I can find for this TV, so I'll give some heat. This is £1099 at a lot of places, which have not started their sales yet, so maybe thats why people are voting cold????

This should be expired, nowhere near this price now. £679.97 and the OP said it was £622.32 (although price updated to £649.97)

That's a big washing line to dry 9kg!


​Tumble Dryer.
Got to laugh at all the people making out that Bosch are the highest quality...What a load of exaggerated rubbish the Logixx range (the most expensive and only ones still made in Germany iirc) will last a few years but they are NOT Miele.

I bought my current Bosch Logixx WAS32462GB two years ago for £649 (discounted from £699 at JL) and the basic warranty is just about up - 1600RPM, 9KG, A+ Rated. I honestly don't know if I should pay for the extra 3 years or just let this give up. I've had constant electronics problems with it (I have been told to power off and hard rese it three times and now know how to do it by haert) and it frequently decides it won't spin dry properly. Service man changed the electrics circuit board and it's the same. It is quite quiet though - just not a reliable as my old trouble free AEG...another brand which has, apparently, let standards drop.

Bosch are a decent brand but they are not elite or anything.

I hope you are right on all thisYour text here with the tv....have just taken the plunge into the (dying) world of plasma in hope the experience is worth the 'upgrade' over plumping for LED backlit LCD, whilst awaiting in 5 years or so the arrival of decent pricing with the inevitable plasma beating OLED tvs.
I'm sure you will be very happy. If you want me to share picture settings, let me know.
That's very kind of you thanks..John Lewis are set to deliver next thursday.
I have been doing quite a bit of reading over on avforums and in a way wished I had not!
The set suffers from poor black levels of which some users are potentiometer tweaking to improve. Talk of black levels MLL rising in plasmas after burn in having to set the hdmi inputs to pc mode to access 'enhanced' settings..being carefuI during burn in of image retention, possibilty of sets having a 'pink' luminance around white arrears of the screen. I am seriously wondering if I would have been better off with getting an LED backlit LCD instead....
Seems there is a lot of defence of plasma in comparison to LCD than reports of its problems of which now I have bought one and have a vested interest to know more I have discovered.
Hmm, thanks for pointing out the potentiometers, I wouldn't have thought to check because, well, LCDs don't have anything analog to tweak really. Forgot that plasmas are in fact some pretty old tech and therefore have tuneables. As soon as I get a mate to help out by being my eyes I'll dive in.
Firstly back screws out and the front is loose, stand the unit upright and you have yourself a £400 insurance claim at worst (glass and gravity do no mix!), or an olympic gold medal in dexterous catching at best. Duct tape or reinserting screws to hold the front frame are preventable measures!
Although it is not really recommended to tune via that method anyway. A digital meter to measure the voltage at each of the points to match with recommended settings in the factory service manual and tune with that.
Are the black levels really noticeably bad on this tv?
Hence the second person, seems generally useful during the process. Black levels aren't bad, they're noticeably lighter than black with most images unless there's some major contrast on screen but at the same time they beat my 27" IPS display which uses the same panel as the 2560x1440 apple cinema displays.
Here's a small album comparing the two, IPS is set to minimum brightness, also I can't get rid of that brown tint with colour adjustment, though I've also never noticed it before. Small comparison album
Certainly deeper blacks than your IPS...I still would not recommend doing pot tweaking by eye, match voltage against LGs factory levels (of which sets seem to be deviating from)...some people are just cranking levels and I would hazard any warranty claims would be unconvincing against LG not even being aware that you have took the back off your tv with correct factory levels.
One thing I notice from your pictures (although I am only viewing on a tablet) is quite a blue tone to whites...have you set colour temperature to cool?

Mmm, quite tricky to do without an oscilloscope, but it looks like you can get one that'll do the job (1MHz sampling so 1 microsecond resolution) for about £50. I'll put in the order once payday comes around. The ISF preset sets colour temperature to "Warm2" so no, not at all. I quite prefer the blue whites, makes them look crisp and clean while the IPS looks dirty in my opinion.

*edit* Reading through the avsforum thread, we don't have any service manuals for 2014 models right? Just have to hope the voltages haven't changed... eep.

Wetherby not too far from me, really tempted :|

"I ordered my today and it's been the same price since Black Friday!"

As it's in store only, are we to assume that (like your lack of basic grammar) you'll not be receiving all the, "You still get..." add-ons?!

The picture cracks me up. It's angle makes it appear massive.:p


@encaser ... bit bored today were you?

guarantee, 4k movies and sub says in store only...

@mr_mojo_risin I called up to check and completed my order over the phone and it is being delivered tomorrow (thank you powerdirect.co.uk). Again check Sony's website, every seller is offering the sub (ends 07/12) and movies (ends 24/12) you have to be sure which you select with other seller's as some offer either or both, all for the same price.
