Been in the market for a new TV and having couple Sony/LG/Samsung TVs is past 2 months I've learned there is no perfect TV but this one proved to be the best out of the bunch so keeping it.

No banding, great angles, very little flashlight clouding - which is actually only noticable on the no signal screen - was watching fireworks in HD last night in the dark room and couldn't see any!

This TV has one of the best 3D with the least crosstalk - both due to good panel as well as very good glasses.
I watched Bolt, Monster House, Cloudy, 3 IMAX blu-rays and 3D as well as played on PS3 in 3D and it's very good, much better than 3D on Sony's and Samsung's.

1 pair of battery powered glasses (70h life) is included with the TV, more can be had for ~£70-80.

This TV has also great SD processing, non-HD programming looks much better than on the competition.

The design is really classy with the single sheet of glass - I was afraid it'll be too reflective but it isn't - it's same or less than Samsung/Sony glossy TV's.
Chrome around the edge adds a nice touch.

All the connectivity is there - DLNA, Internet TV - Wi-Fi dongle not included but can be had for ~£45.

I got mine for even less - £1687 @ Electro Centre but it's out of stock there.

Also available for £1744 @ Play.

Product Features:
55" Full 1080 HD 3D LED Screen
Freeview HD Tuner
200Hz Picture Processing
Access to YouTube & BBC iPlayer
852mm x 1283mm x 356mm

High Definition 3D - Intelligent 3D automatically compensates for the loss of brightness and varying colour perception associated with 3D glasses

IPTV - Built-in access to YouTube and BBC iPlayer allows you to watch YouTube clips and BBC programming directly on your TV when connected to your wireless network via USB dongle or Ethernet port

200Hz picture processing - four times as fast as conventional 50Hz processing. The result is seamless motion and amazingly smooth action, ideal for watching sport and other fast moving content.LED - An advanced backlighting system that guarantees new levels of picture clarity by constantly adapting to the images on the screen.

It's LCD with LED backlights - actual LED TVs are about 3mm thick, really expensive, and not available at this size yet.

the thinner LCD-LED tvs, have the LEDs at the edge, but have brightness issues.

Directly behind LED lit systems give better brightness - but they are thicker.

Amazon got something wrong, here are dimensions of the set without the stand - less than 2.9cm

Depth 28.9 mm
Height 772 mm
Width 1283 mm

I've mounted it with slim wall mount, here's photo:

Well, yeah. But when people say LED TVs, they mean LCD with LED backlighting.

The true LED type you are talking about is referred to as OLED. As you say they're not available in this size yet, but they are amazing. LED, 3D, 200Hz etc are all just cheap marketing gimmicks. OLED really does make a huge difference - the sharpness is unbelievable.

I can't wait for full size affordable OLED screens. Biggest they've got is 15" or something at the moment isn't it?

Ridiculous amount of money to spend on a TV. This technology will probably be redundant in a year or two.
#11
it will be redundant because people buy the top end stuff and then more top end stuff comes out thus relegating last years technology. in short, the reason why it's redundant is because people will always spend money on something better, the companies aren't making the TV's for the fun of it.

having said all that only came onto the thread for fun, wouldn't be able to afford that for a long time.

I've seen CRT TV's that are thinner than 356mm.....

As tcubed says, that redundancy is where the profit margins lie for the TV manufacturers. If they just stopped doing new things they wouldn't sell half as many TV's.

But £1743 isn't the sort of money I'd spend on a TV, ever. And my house certainly isn't large enough to host a 55 inch TV! I'm fairly sure my projector screen is only a few inches larger than that!

No vote from me, to me this is really poor value for what it is, but I can't judge whether this price is good for what you get.

More like a month or two with the rate tv's are going! Better to hire now so you can always stay up to date.

My god man what have you been doing eating them ????

TV's are such a fluid area when it comes to pricing - there's going to be lots of big internet & 3D ready tv's flooding the market soon - its the next big thing so everyones jumping in - like all the ipad rivals being released now - think there's going to be plenty sub 1k choice soon perhaps a lot less than that - so at this price I'd hold on - not voting either way though.
#17
55'' too... thats my limit size! If its been rated well on AV forums thewn this will be the one to get!
#18
£1743 for a telly? No thanks. Cold from me.

I've had couple LG, Sony & Samsung, all returned due to banding, poor backlight or build quality.

I personally buy something near the top end (yeah I know for some this TV isn't but I can't afford Samsung C9000) and keep it for ~8 years - hence I'm quite picky knowing it'll stay that long in my living room.

The 356mm depth on the Amazon is with the stand fitted.

As I've mentioned before the TV itself is just 28.9mm so it's very thin for that size.

So because something is too expensive for your taste you vote cold?

I thought the hotukdeals is based on a good/bad price for the particular product.

If you're not interested in the product or can't find better price please keep your comments & voting to yourself.

Ive voted cold as i tried the 47 inch suffered badly with led sptlight bleed in each corner and was on 2nd set, bad central banding, 3d glasses couldnt be worn with glasses like the samsung one, u only get 1 pair of glasses, bad contrast, go with samsung dont waste ya money believe me its not that great

Interesting, I think though you've had a different model:

1) There is no 47 inch size of this model.
2) On the avforums and reviews no one reported banding.
3) My wife and her sister watched it with glasses - I didn't hear complains.

The most interesting is... the panel in this TV is actually Samsung panel - unlike Samsung TV's where you have panel lottery and are likely to get non-Samsung, poor performing panel.

So yeah, buy Samsung TV, pay £2300 for 55" C8000 and you can't even be sure what panel you get :p

Get you. But why did you post a £327 TV as a deal then? Or did you vote your own deal cold? :|
