About ready to give up looking for a decent value 55" 4K set given all the light bleed/DSE/contrast ratio/IPS/HDR input lag/motion judder nonsense going on with every set. Might just opt for something like this until next year.

lol... i'm also in the same boat!
4k seems still early... like when is Eastenders going to be in native 4k?
I've seen adverts for 8K already, which seems strange as you can't get much in 4K right now.
Best to hold out for 16k.

Got my son the 40" for Christmas as he was giving off that the PS4 graphics on his supermarket special look a lot worse than mine. Maybe would have went to this though it's almost £100 more expensive than the Amazon warehouse deal I got. Image quality looked great for the price on limited testing.

Bought this recently, great tv for sport and gaming, X Reality makes things even more distinguishable, lots of options to edit picture settings to suit, 2x HDMI only downside I've found in 5+ months.

Bought from Argos in June just before the Euros for same price

Quidco says 10% for TVs over £299 for home delivery or fast track, so that would bring this down to about £315 if it goes through ... so tempted.

Anyone bought via Quidco and can confirm it tracked at 10%?

4K TVs generally have some built in upscaling. 48" is actually pretty big for 1080p, as in big enough that the difference with a 4K upscaling TV would be noticeable. This is still a good deal though, these have a nice interface (if you like that sort of thing).

I had full hd 42 panny plasma until it died on me and that had a good sd / hd picture so this is only slighly bigger.

To get a good 4k tv means paying at least 550 / 600 (with at least acceptable scaling) then of course you really want Ultra HDR 10 bit. So for me I would much rather buy now and then buy in 3 years time when HDR will be a common standard and maybe there will be allot of material around for it then.

I take your point, but a 48" tv is actually quite a decent amount bigger than a 42" to my eyes at least. Except in the case of an old plasma where, including bezels, they might be about the same size ;)

True, trying to find a true 10bit panel for under £1500 is a stretch aswell. I am waiting for prices to come down in the next couple of years and who knows maybe by then general broadcasting will be in HD instead of SD.. lol. 4K content is great if you have some but we are not ready. Just makes regular content look worse.

If you've got a .ac student email account you can do it on the Amazon website. If not and you have a valid NUS card you can email them a photo of the card. I did it yesterday and it was applied to my account within 4 hours. You get it free for 6 months then its about £37/annum which gives you a maximum of £1000 discount /annum, Amazon music, Amazon TV and next day delivery Etc.

Hope this helps

Add my vote to that. I have looked at so many reviews the last year and my conclusion is for those like me who still like to watch some standard def material, all 4K tv's no matter the cost do not upscale well from standard as opposed to Full HD TVs. Add to that the build quality e.g. Samsung ks7000 with many owners complaining of the backs comming away and the popularity of edge lit and subsequent light bleed, which all seems a step back and for what- there's still hardly any 4K content around not to mention HRD!

The student discount is for amazon warehouse, not new stuff..
http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/amazon-student-members-get-a-20-discount-off-selected-products-from-amazon-warehouse-2510310
It says "20% off" by the delivery info on the screen you get after you click e.g. "32 used" and see the list of sellers.
