Buying a curved screen TV these days is akin to purchasing a HD-DVD player or an Amstrad e-mailer phone.
Why is that?
curved Tvs are becoming obsolete.less cured models are being made now and specially most of top of the range sets are no longer curved.
it was a short marketing "trend".
Perhaps if you're the sort who needs to have other people tell you whats "cool" or not
not really,I immediately disliked curved Tvs as soon as they were launched.never fell for that.
pointless, useless gimmick.and I'm so pleased they are obsolete already.
Except they aren't obsolete. Plenty of curved TV's available in 2017 ranges.
if you do a little research you will realise they are becoming less and less common.they were the trend 2 years ago, they were just a marketing gimmick to boost falling TV sales of that era, but things changed quickly, people realised curved TVs offer no benefit, just a styling option really, if anything they have awful viewing angel.
with rise of HDR and UHD 4K and also OLED TVs soon the TV sales began to hike again so no real point to trick customers into buying "curved" TV since they suddenly had real reasons to upgrade..hence why less and less curved TVs are being made now.
it's like 3D TV but much more short lived.
understandably some folks who fell for this gimmick become angry and defensive when they read these comments, but it's true. (_;)
Sorry, I didn't understand a word of that. Viewing angels?
maybe you can understand this?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNPvd0HE7Kk
Classy. It only took you a day and 3 edits to come up with that, well done you!
it was well worth it tho.(_;)
As the saying goes... Simple things please simple minds.
you need to re-watch that video.
I rest my case.
whatever, job's done (_;)

If your spending 2K+ I would have to say it would be worth going OLED.. but I totally get why you would consider top end LCD.
Nice Price for size and model..
I thought long and hard but you can't get an oled at this size for a sensible price and the ghosting issues on the cheaper B/C sets put me off.

I was waiting on OLED as well but after getting terrible screen burn on my OLED tablet I'm just gonna get an LED one.

Well my tv arrived this afternoon, cracked my whip and got Mr P setting it up straight away ;)
Oooooh it's most fabulous indeed!!!.... just having a fiddle and trying to get all the settings right, loving the immersive sound thru the curved sound bar I got to complement it!
If anyone who's already got the tv has any tips or advice on what they found worked well or best please feel free to share :)
Just waiting now for my JL price match refund then I'll be doubly happy!
Thanks again OP for your post, me sends you thanks again (but my credit card doesn't!) X) xx

Was about to hit the buy button then noticed there also doing the ue65ks9500 for £2000 .stunnng price of kit I've had my eyes on all year in currys but cost £3800 on release . So almost 50% saving on the release rrp.. not bad for Samsungs flag ship 2016/17 model
Don't believe those release date prices from Samsung, my 9000 model was reduced by £600 within hours of it's official release date.
How do you rate it bud
Excellent and had lots of good comments from others, I personally would not touch a curved screen with a barge pole.
Is you 9000 a flat screen then bud .
Only ones I've seen are curved . Including the 9500 I'm looking at



They didn't make curved screen when I got mine, the difference is in the model number letters not in the model range, i,e, the model range is 7000,8000 and 9000.

Not 10bit, not for me, but might be for other people, just pointing that out.
The LG 55UH770V is 10 bit but gets poor reviews. Is 10 bit the be all?


In my opinion it's not worth the extra £4-600.

Minimal difference

4k 10 bit > 4k 8 bit >>> 1080p >>>>> 720p.

I can't tell the difference between a 10 and 8 bit panel. In my opinion paying the extra for 8 bit is a waste of money


Do you mean paying the extra for 10 bit?

It has freesat & freeview built in .......have not been able work out how to switch between them?
Anyone managed to do it successfully ? If so - would appreciate any pointers.
Thanks
Isn't it under 'broadcasting' options - antenna/input -> Air/cable/freesat/satellite
Thanks .....found the problem ....one of the aerial leads had failed - hence no signal on terrestrial.

Know what your saying and agree with it, but these buy now pay later deals do have their place if you like to budget month by month, like yourself I always used to pay cash for things never entertained any form of credit, but these days I use it to my advantage not only for security but as a famous investor once said anything that appreciates buy anything that depreciates lease, that's why I focused on clearing my mortgage and leasing or deferring payments on everything else within reason but obviously without paying interest as that's a big no no for me on any depreciating asset.

We are kinda saying the same thing, I have taken advantage of these deals as well. I mean who would want to pay a coupla grand up front for sofas when you can pay it over 4 years? I'm sure most of the guys on this site are the same. It's more about when and where you should use these.

It does take a certain amount of focus and fiscal responsibility to take advantage of these deals, else you can easily find yourself taking on too many of these and struggling when it comes to paying it all back. For me, just because you can get credit doesn't mean you should forget about living within your means, or that working hard and saving up to buy yourself that piece of luxury is probably far more satisfying that putting yourself into debt just to keep up with the joneses
RedmanDealer
If you are someone who already has the spare cash but would take advantage of buy now/pay later offers for financial gain then this might be something you can go for. If you haven't got £500 spare to spend on a shiny new TV then you need to learn to save for one and buy one when you can afford it (or at least set your sights lower).
It's almost guaranteed that if you can't afford it now, you won't be able to in 12 months time and you'll end up with big interest bills to go with the original sum.
I really hate these kind of finance deals, as it just encourages people to spend what they don't have. Personal Finance should be about helping people to pay for essential items (like white goods etc) when you need them now and can't wait for 2 years after you have saved for it.

£499 at Richer Sounds in Belfast and a 6 year warranty - won't be suitable for everyone, but sounds like a much better deal as paying £46 for BNPL is not "interest free"!

Yes I know its cheaper in Co-op but This deal is good for anyone who wants to Buy now pay later.


Thanks BigDaveH for the cheaper alternative which would interest more people I'm sure. If you can't afford it, don't buy it!


Not always about being able to afford it.. Some people would rather just spread the cost, how's about keep ur nose out and let people do as they please.

"Spears discovered that Samsung’s UBD-K8500 deck is using the wrong chroma resampling method for BT.2020 4:2:0 content found on 4K Blu-ray discs, resulting in a marginally softer picture."


It don't sound like this is something you would notice:-

"To be fair, this loss in chroma resolution is unlikely to be noticed by most viewers, due to the ultra-high resolution of 3840×2160 content, and the fact that our eyes are inherently less sensitive to chroma than luma information anyway".

Wouldn't it be better to buy a Xbox One S? That does 4k and its a gaming console.


I was thinking the same, apparently the one s isn't as good as a dedicated 4k Blu-ray player.

im not into the upscaling idea. if i had this TV i would watch native 1080p as im watching now with my tv, there would be no need to upscale that. question in my mind is, what would it be like if i was to watch 4k content on that TV for example i hear some netflix content is in 4k?

looks great. but checking this tv out, it looks like its not true 4k. the info on the net and website talk alot about upscaling. please feel free to correct me if im wrong, as i'm in the market for a new tv
im including the amazon link as this seems to have more reviews than anywhere elseamazon link

All modern TVs upscale older content, including 1080p "full HD" TVs, to make anything that isn't it's native res look a bit better. This is still a 4k TV. For HDR though, it seems as though this is an 8 bit panel, which isn't the full capacity of colour that HDR can produce.

Also, all new Sony TVs force you to ditch your 3D film collection :(

Hard to justify the price when you could buy Xbox one s instead
Unfortunately the Xbox player isn't in the same league and considering picture quality is the prime reason for owning one, that's fairly important. Plus, Xbox doesn't have HD sound. Another NO, NO.

If you mean picture quality (PQ), exactly the same I'd suspect. It's commonly accepted that unless the player alters the information it reads off the disc in some way, sending a modified signal to the display, the PQ of one player will the the same as the next. Anyone telling you different is trying to justify their purchase.


That's not true. They (all DVD/BD/UHD players) process information differently, so you'll find that cheaper players generally suffer when it comes to sound and picture quality. If the transfer of information was as straight forward as you believe, HD sound would be readily available on the unit too.

half a grand though lol
It's not, but thanks for participating.
It's literally the cheapest online by pence, oldrids & downtown had it at £539.00 earlier, but all their Sonos stuff keeps coming and going out of stock hourly.
I went for a Playbar and Sub bundle at Smart Home Sounds with a free playbar wall mount, then managed to grab a pair of play 1's from Oldrids when they came back in stock for £125 each....black friday is the devil.

And if you asked at richer sounds to beat the smarthome sounds deal. You would have got it even cheaper with a 6 year guarantee. £1080 + £35 saving is not much better when you add the 2 together, than the OP's post considering you don't need the wall mount, did you get the sub mount?
This board is to help people find deals not boast about your own purchases


I wasn't boasting young Tony, just simply displaying my means of creating a Sonos system cheaper than package deals currently available.

Do have to say though, Richer Sounds get a big thumbs up for the 6 year guarantee offer. Something I don't personally need, but a nice sweetener for what is an expensive outright purchase.

It's not, but thanks for participating.

In this context, 'a grand' would mean £1000, as this item is £539, it would be slightly more accurate to say that it is "a little more than half a grand", but half a grand never the less.


Does this fact make it less of a deal?

Funny how folks on this site think sometimes.

I have the 50UH635V and it's definitely not HDR10 - it will recognise an HDR source but you won't get "proper" HDR.
Just spoke to LG support through live chat and they confirm that it is HDR10.
What makes you think that it is not. interested as I'm thinking of buy this.
8 bit panelhttp://www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/28c4504
Thank you, just shows you can't trust the manufactures.
but according the the LG website HDRPro is HDR10, its all way too confusing at the moment, HD ready all over again :( 8bit, 8+2bit, 8bit+FRC WTF ???
lmao, it really is a mine field. All manufacturers, should be made to use the same terminology. HDR10 is HDR10 anything else is not full / the full HDR standard.
That's the point of the UHD Premium certification isn't it? That guarantees that all aspects of HDR specs are met.
Not really it guarantees the TV can accept the signal thats about it.
That's not my understanding based on reading articles such as http://www.whathifi.com/advice/ultra-hd-premium-what-are-specs-which-tvs-support-it
Where have you got that info from?
By quite simply seeing the large volume of TV's at this moment claiming to be S-UHD like the one on this post but in reality they can never be as they are 8 bit screens,also these regulations are arbitrary not mandatory which lets the manufacturers get away with what is tantamount to false advertising.The reality is if you want a set that is actually S-UHD and of the same size as the LG here be prepared to spend at least double the £800 it costs.
Pray tell, what does the "S" stand for?

Too many abbreviations for the same thing(10 bit HDR) it's Samsung that use S-UHD it probably stands for super but if you need clarification by all means contact them.


LG use "S-UHD" to indicate a TV featuring 4 k resolution and quantum dot technology; that's all.

UHD Premium is not the same as what LG are calling S-UHD
. This TV is not a UHD Premium TV, nor does it pretend to be. All UHD Premium certified sets conform to full range of HDR specs. Go and have a read of what the specs involved in gaining UHD Premium certification are.

Nope it means it can receive the signal. UHD premium means it can display it too. That's proper HDR

yes OLED is absolutely in a galaxy of it's own, I'm so happy that this technology is possible in my lifetime. You need to put an OLED next to an LCD (any) in a pitch black/very dark room and observe

the difference is shocking and really makes you wonder why people even buy LCD's anymore (I'm talking about enthusiasts). Great deal and the 920V has plenty of brightness at 449 nits - that's only 91 nits off UHD Premium

Ok so the 920 and 950 both support HDR via hdmi
The 960 has HDR via streaming only.
960 was a currys specific unit with 920 going to other shops like richer sounds.
So 920 curved oled HDR via hdmi with 3D
950 the same except it's flat screen
960 curved oled HDR streaming only with 3D


I have the 960 and it supports 4K HDR via hdmi as I have a May 2016 build. As long as you get a 2016 build it will.

I bought an AM07 a few months back for £145 from the Dyson Outlet. Absolutely love it. I sleep with a fan on and the fact that it's quieter and no longer blows dust in my face that was hard to clean off the blades is a big win in my eyes.
I doubt it's much cooler than others but cars aren't just judged by how fast they go.

If you want to clean the blades hidden in the dysan, then you've got to dismantle it.

I clean the dust off the blades of my desktop fan the quick, easy way..

1. Spray blades generously with pledge type furniture polish.
2. Set to max power, Switch on and stand well back for about 90 seconds.

Centripetal force throws off the polish taking all the dust with it. Obviously, should be done outside or covered by a box or some-such :) And will only be effective on fans with a decent sized motor (mine's 90w with just a 12 inch fan).

Alternatively, buy a tower fan for about 20 quid.

wow £200 for a fan...Having spent the best part of this heat wave week visiting hospital where they have lots of these fans, I really can say that my cheapo £15 fan does a better job...really think its a con...for £200 you best pick up an air conditioner


Pretty sure you'd want these in a hospital rather than normal ones!
Whole reason is due to cross infection.
