Reviews are not good for this Sammy.

Heat because it is a good deal regardless of reviews.

There's not much content out there that can output to 4k so not worth buying really!

Cheapest I've seen. Yeah I've heard about Netflix 4k not sure if it's any good though.

This TV comes without Netflix (apparently some license issue or other that Samsung are looking to rectify...in their own good time) and there's no option to download and install it.

So you'll need something else to feed Netflix to the TV. More importantly you're going to need a PC or MAC to feed anything 4K to this TV at present.

It says on the eBay listing it comes with netflix 4k? Have samsung released an update to remove it? Click on the link and have a gander.

Samsung have Netflix right? It's iPlayer they don't at the moment.

But maybe it doesn't have Netflix 4k...

The listing seems to be quite sure it has netflix 4k. Surely they're not being misleading?

No mention of a HEVC encoder in the specs so i can't see how 4K Netflix would work.

No 3D?

I have a Samsung and it has both Netflix and iPlayer.Doesnt have Now TV

A model number and size in your post might be useful though OP.

This is my first post. I noticed shortly after I posted. Ill do better next time. Also the picture is wonky...

Netflix 4K now operational according to here.

Model number is Samsung UE40HU6900, searching for this shows that it does have HEVC encoding and HDMI 2.0. But with a 40" screen you would have be sat pretty close to appreciate the difference between fullHD and UHD. Unless you use it as a desktop monitor!

Any mac freaks on here know if this was connected to a 2014 MBP retina if you could output 4k to this screen over HDMI? If so would be a good alternative to the stupidly expensive 27" apple monitor

Screen looks a bit wonky to me...

UHD is not very useful on such a small screen unless you intend to use it as a PC monitor.

Pointless unless hdmi 2.0

I'd hold off 12months if considering Uhd TVs. Actually i'd hold off 3 or 4 years, took that long for HD channels to appear, and there naff all 3d, even the bbc have abandoned it.

The Netflix issue is irrelevant. There simply isnt enough content available.
Its better to spend your money on a a good quality 1080p TV (which displays good images), rather than a 4k TV which displays poor images.
Furthermore most human beings simply wont be able to tell the difference between 1080p and 4k at size: 40".

Personally, I'd like to see OLED TVs reduce in price.
This technology will improve image quality no matter what the resolution and will allow LCD/LED TVs to finally bridge the image quality gap to plasma, at lower power usage.

This same debate always comes up every time a Samsung '4k' TV comes on here, can someone suggest the best 55" Samsung TV I can get for around £1000? Thank you

At this price I would just hook it up to an HTPC. Some Nvidia cards (600 series and up) can do 4k over HDMI 1.4 and the 800 series will have proper 2.0 support and partial HEVC acceleration.

As has been previously mentioned on this forum, this model can really only display a static 4K resolution screen and with a moving 4K picture, the screen will lose resolution. Not worth jumping in on this model for 4K. I'll wait for prices to drop on better specced models and it's easy to wait when there's so little 4K material anyway.

I have one on a late 2013 Retina MacBook Pro 15" and it works at UHD over HDMI. The caveats are there are no graphics cards at the moment that do HDMI 2.0, so with HDMI 1.4 (including on the rMBP) it's limited to 30Hz (which I don't care much about, I don't game, I use it for CAD) and 4:2:2 chroma subsampling (which is a bit annoying). There's also a ton of picture 'improvement' options to turn off, and then all the 'smart' crapware (thankfully most of them don't work if there's no internet connection)

It's a very nice monitor and I can live with that, but I'd recommend something with DisplayPort (if you can find one) if you need the 60Hz experience. DisplayPort is a bit of a hack at 60Hz (it pretends to be two monitors), so a longer term solution is HDMI 2.0 GPUs, which are supposedly coming towards the end of the year. To be fair, it's not the monitor's fault that there's nothing to drive them properly at the moment. I don't know the 2014 rMBP - I think the Mac Pro can do a better job than the 2013 rMBP so maybe the 2014 model is better.

Not quite true. Nvidia's Kepler cards can do 60Hz 4K over HDMI 1.4 at the cost of using 4:2:0 sampling and for games and video the quality loss isn't meant to be too bad.

Thanks. On Friday set it up on a GTX780 on my Linux box - I haven't noticed a 60Hz option, but must dig deeper. That was where the chroma subsampling really bites - had a terminal which had red text on blue-almost-black background. I thought there was something wrong with the program, the text was unreadable. Turning the background to full black helped a bit. There's also a mode called UHD HDMI Color that I later realised was turned off on that port - it made a difference on my Mac when I turned it on, so it might help Linux too (which tends to use sharper text than Mac). Wouldn't be surprised if this is a switch from 4:2:0 to 4:2:2.

Will John Lewis price match?

Will John Lewis price match?



Crampton and Moore have a physical shops, so they should. Though the price on C&M's website is £599 rather than £549 in the ebay listing.

Price seems to be tumbling on this one. Was looking at it during the World Cup and it was £999 then 899. We finally bought at £729 from JL two weeks ago!

could anyone clarify if this tv does 4k at 60hz?? it should because the hdmi 2 connection. No GPU in the market can still do 2.0, is anyone been able to get 60HZ through the 1.4 hdmi connection? Or is there a way to convert the displayport in my gpu in to an hdmi 2.
I got 2x r9 290ati gpu's

for a Exta 15" so 55" same model of TV for £799.00 look below

RGB Direct SAMSUNG UE55HU6900 55" Ultra HD 4K Smart LED TV £799.00 WITH CODE "RGB150PNDOFF"
hotukdeals.com/dea…548

hdtvtest.co.uk/new…htm review is not bad but not good only 4k when there's no motion so basically when your looking at photos.

I own this set.
It has HDMI 2
A mac will output 4k over hdmi, and yes it's a fantastic monitor (why I bought it)
It had Netflix 4k
The blurring (mentioned in the review) is no worse (or better) than other cheap samsung sets
