I believe this is the cheapest price for this TV, ends Sunday. I've ordered to be delivered on Sunday. Use code TV10 to get 10% off £849 = £764.10 free delivery, with 5 years warranty. Tesco £844.5 Richer sound £849 (6 years warranty) Others £889 or more I wonder if there's any other TV that's better than this one and cheaper? If there is please let me know. I can still cancel my order :)

any idea what TVs this code works on? tried it on a £850 LG and it didn't work. Annoying that Curry's make you fill in everything before you can try a code...

This is definitely the cheapest 4k HDR tv in the "good" range, but at this point you are a week away from the biggest electronics sale of the year. I wager you will get a 10 bit panel for a price very close to this on BF, which would be a much better deal.

Go via quidco too for a further 10% cashback. I'm not sure if it will work when using a voucher code, but worth a try.

but it works even better on a good 10 bit; it all depends on how quickly you need a Tv. I would personally prefer to wait for a decent 10 bit (given that I keep Tvs for at least 5 years) and also for more HDR content to be available...

Yeah 10 bit would work much better that's for sure. I have done some testing on gears of war 4 and even though my 4k tv is only a 8 bit panel the difference is stunning with HDR enabled. I'm just pointing out that all is not lost if you go for a cheaper 4k 8 bit :)

The daily struggle continues. I had just convinced myself to wait until CES and make do with a cheaper 1080p set for another year or so. Then this rocks up.

And just to stir the pot, Rtings also thought this was an 8bit panel but then corrected themselves.

Heat added. Mind befuddled. Patience diminished.

Tried that earlier but code wasn't valid. Did it work for you?

This TV has no local dimming whatsoever. HDR is close to pointless with such TVs. I will explain in more detail if someone disagrees or wants an explanation.

I'm not saying there is anything wrong with the TV. I'm just saying if you are all hyped up about getting into the HDR experience...this TV is not for you.

TV manufacturers have no qualms about selling something that says it does something...but from a technical perspective is really not capable.

4k and HDR aren't the same thing, you can have one without the other. Unless you have a HDR source (4K blu ray player, Ps4 Pro or X Box One S) then you're watching 4K but not HDR.

In simple terms, HDR is basically the capability for brighter brights. Both on the display side, and on grading/master/delivery side.

However the intent is for only small portions of the frame to be intensely bright. You don't actually want the entire screen to be beaming 1000 nits at you because that would be very uncomfortable. The intent is for small areas - maybe the sun, maybe a flame, maybe the glint on a sword etc - to be very bright. But the overall average brightness of the entire frame should not be much different to SDR.

The problem as this pertains to standard LCD sets (with a single uniform backlight) is that if you crank up the backlight to 1000 nits in order to make one object on screen very bright, you make everything else washed out. It's unavoidable due to the transmissive nature of LCD sets. The dynamic range is not increased, you are simply moving it so your bright and dark tones are both much higher than before.

The solution is a local dimming display with many dimming zones. This TV is not one of those. It has a single uniform backlight. Being honest, even mid-range local dimming displays with 100 odd zones are not enough. You need something crazy high-end with thousands of zones to do justice to HDR. Or preferably and OLED panel where every pixel supplies it's own illumination.

I believe it's the US name for this version. If not, can you pick out the US name from the Rtings site? Would be good to see what they have to say about it.

not true as an 8 bit panel cannot process a HDR signal it will take the signal and try to match as close as it can minus a few million less colours using some clever dimming and other effects but it wont be displaying a HDR signal it will accept the HDR signal and play it as SDR with those clever tweaks and effects to improve the colours slightly
