low end 4k tvs don't handle fast movement well, therefore not worth buying one yet, better with a good full hd set. that was the advice of richer sounds advisor I spoke too.

Same price at John Lewis too m.johnlewis.com/mt/…993

IMHO Samsung UE40HU6900 is better, which is also £599.

been this price for at least 3 weeks

Was keen on 4k but I appreciate the comment made earlier in thread about cheap 4k vs good HD. Can anyone recommend good 40 inch TV around £400/£450 mark.

I have just ordered the the LG 47lb730v , in the rgb direct sale, cracking tv , 5 year warranty and much cheaper than richer sounds price, they have a 42 inch too. the Samsung 5500 and 6400, 6500 etc are all good too.

Thanks. I will look at the tvs mentioned. Cheers.

good deal OP

carefull with the Panasonic cause although there 4k some of the low end ones don't support streaming in 4k as they don't have the correct codec in the software so using netflix to stream 4k content all be it very few titles is not possible

Re: Request slightly over-size and over-price but I bought a Sony 42w829 this week (£499 with free soundbar) after 3 months of deciding which 42" to buy and have been super impressed with it.

Any opinions on this seems good, it has been posted without any great recognition but specs seem superb link

Been this price in Curry's online for a few weeks I think. Still a good price, but patience is a virtue, so I'll join the group that waits for more (for less) in a year or two's time. edit+++ with a 5 year guarantee..

Hi turbohat, where did you get the Sony kdl42w829 television from, please?

Can't do Netflix 4K

Ordered mine from Amazon for £499. The free soundbar promo was supposed to end at 24/12/14 but as of Boxing Day they were still doing it. John Lewis and Richer both had it at £499 but without the soundbar offer.

Could have got a Sony 49k8505 for £999 minus 10% = £900 in Boxing Day sales with a store card, decided against and now kicking myself. I am a bit of a Sony fanboy as I have a lovely Sony stand with speakers all built in...anyone recommend a good choice, refuse to spend 1k on technology, sound bar included would be nice. Come on HUKDealers...find me a steal. Oh and 5 year warranty.

Think i will keep our panasonic G20 for a little while longer but i am keeping an eye on these 4k tvs.

Is there any 4k content available now? Aren't the things shown in the showrooms demo 4k blurays? Until the content is widely available it will be like having a 3d telly. They do look great though.

Motion on this TV is just as good as the high end sets as it has frame interpolation. It's just the cheap Samsung and LG 4ks that suffer from motion blur (6900 and UB850).

Picture quality wise, this set is a lot better that the budget 4k offerings from other manufacturers. However the only drawback is that it does not support Netflix 4k. There will be loads of 4k players on the market sooner or later so this might not matter too much.

Finally 4k on a screen this small is almost impossible to tell the difference between this and full HD, unless you sit very close to the screen.

do you have opinion on this, thinking of buying as the freetime is appealing and the specs seem very good for the money link

This TV does not have the many drawbacks of the cheap 4k sets frequently posted recently. It does not support Netflix 4k on its own but does have hdmi 2.0 so fully supports 4k devices.
It has excellent motion tech and black levels. Depending on location Panasonic stores have this TV with 6year warranty for £569

Turbohat, where does it say the sound bar is still free with the Sony TV from Amazon? I can't see the offer anywhere

I intend to keep mine until it blows up or OLED models come into budget. I still love it 4 years after buying it for gaming and movies though I am being tempted by a larger lcd with a slim bezel but I'd miss the plasma. No interest in 3D either.

Tx58 the larger brother to this tv has had a Netflix 4k update so could be the same for this
