More like deals of several days, not the first time it's been this price.

Just a word of warning, I ordered one of these. Amazon used Hermes for my shipment. After almost two weeks of messing with deliveries allegedly having been made and the TV left at the rear of the house where no rear access was available Amazon asked me to declare the shipment stolen to the police only for them to admit a few days later it was a mistake and the TV was on Hermes depot.

Their own logistics are very good, but where they use third parties like Hermes be prepared to be disappointed. And on this occasion even Amazon customer services failed to rise to the challenge and it left a very bitter taste.

Your experience may vary.

Really wouldn't recommend this, the Android UI on the lower end TV's is sluggish, picture isn't HDR (forget their spiel) and you're much better off saving towards a Samsung KS7000 which can be had for £770ish if you intend on keeping this for a couple of years.

If you're not bothered about a proper 10-bit HDR TV, save some cash and get a Hisense, then move to a proper 10-bit in 2 years once prices and technology are commonplace.

Just my opinion, but current generation TV's are going to get heavily discounted I think leading in to spring. Not voting.

Hermes need to rebrand themselves Herpes to be honest!

I've had 3 of 4 Amazon returns fail due to that f*** up of a business (they don't bother showing up) only for DPD to have to step in and actually do a job. Then last week I had £250 of Abercrombie stuff go walkabout for 3 days after Herpes said they had delivered something when my CCTV showed they hadn't even been to my property.

Pay peanuts, get monkeys!

Our local hermes delivery guy is fine however there is certainly something up with TVs - for the last week, each morning a TV I've ordered for my father is loaded onto a van, driven around for a bit and then checked back into the depot in crewe in the evening.

I can only presume the TV is actually lost and hermes is playing a game while they try to find it.

stay away from Herpes

Trouble with Sony now is that they face very stiff competition from Hisense. My Hisense TV is half the cost of a Sony and boots up almost instantly including getting a web connection.

I know the feeling on that one. They constantly claim to have attempted delivery on the day they are supposed to deliver but then actually deliver the next day or whatever. I think its the actual courier person not being able to get all deliveries done on that day so they just claim to have made an attempt but then do it the next day instead.

That's horrendous, I've also had to report an item stolen that Amazon logistics put in my bin. The bin was on the front as it was bin collection day! So my keyboard is now in land fill somewhere!

Police were a bit reluctant to give me a crime reference number as you can imagine as it wasn't stolen by the bin collection guys persay.

I'd also like to second this- Hermes seem to think my wheelie bin is my front door, and everything just gets taken after they "deliver it". They don't even ring the bell/ walk anywhere near my front door to see if anyone's in...

I agree with all of that except £770? for a Samsung KS7000? the 49" model is about £849.99 right now and the 55" which was £849 in December is now back up to £1099

Nice to see a TV with a proper stand instead of the oil filled radiator look:

​they are 10 bit say in the blurb on John Lewis show me where u get your info.....i have the xd800 series and it's a serious price on kit and with Android it delivers an amazing experience

Avoid herpes like the plague whenever possible. Ordered some penguin shirts, after 4 days I received an email to say they had been posted through my letter box... nope. They refuse to speak to customers over the phone. After 2 weeks of backwards and forwards through Penguin (who have fantastic customer service) DPD were left picking up the pieces with a next day delivery one hour time slot. I refuse to do business with those bunch of c**ts ever again

Would like a 43inch.

You asked, so here's some info about your 8 bit, frame dimmed TV. It doesn't even have FRC that a £300 Hisense has.

Getting 4k, you need 10bit and at least local dimming with 1000nit. The peak brightness of this unit is 400, in "HDR" mode it drops to 120, that's 1/10th of the amount a KS7000 can deliver, or indeed any proper HDR TV.

Steer clear.

Curious to know if the tv fails within 6 years and you want to claim under the 6 year rule if that can be done with Amazon not being based in the uk. It has to be with the retailer not the manufacturer. I assume something like this would be UK spec and sent from within the UK with a UK address invoice? I guess you would be protected if you paid by credit card and not debit card or does that not apply in these circumstances. I don't think it applies to ebay purchases and wondered if that was true of amazon too.

​Under the consumer rights act 2015, you have 6 years to get faulty goods repaired, however once the product is more than 6 months old you have to prove it was faulty when you received it.

True 10-bit quantum dot display, 1000 nit brightness, no local dimming, but it's the best picture you'll get bang for buck right now. Plus it's a true 120hz whereas this Sony is 60hz.

There's no such thing, it's edge lit like every other TV that doesn't have local dimming.

​No idea why Amazon chose Hermes to deliver this TV. But you can't assume anything you order from Amazon is going to be delivered by a specific logistics channel. I was just highlighting to potential purchasers that I had a very bad experience because Amazon chose to use Hermes for my order. As I pointed out, your experience may vary.

Here's a direct quote from the KS7000 review on avforums " The KS7000 is LED edge-lit and includes both Precision Black local dimming and an Ultra Black anti-reflection moth eye filter." Also the link you previously left in post #27 for the UE49KS7000 clearly states it has local dimming.

Why bother with all the hassle ? They ain't going to roll over and hand your cash back after warranty ends .You have to prove TV had a manufacturing defect ..just pay the little extra with JL OR RS and relax for next 5/6 years

Sorry was posting in haste on a mobile, my reason for that link was this portion of the conclusion:

Given its edge-lit LED configuration, of course the KS7000′s HDR performance wasn’t going to be as compelling as that provided by full-array local dimming (FALD) LCDs or OLED TVs, but then again it’s considerably more affordable.

It seems to be a term, much like HDR, that's used with differing meaning. So apologies for the confusion, for my local dimming is only really achieved with FALD or OLED TV's that have a physical capability to turn off (lighting) precise portions of the screen, any edge lit configuration is a hack at achieving this, in the same way that FRC is to 10bit screens.

I'm not suggesting it makes no difference, it does, but the quality of the solution is compromised. You just end up with a blown out black with screen bleed, or having to reduce brightness of the backlight which reduces your white range.

Either way, the KS7000 will likely be a TV I consider buying in 6 months if it hits the £500-600 mark, it's a great screen.

Xd800 series are better than that and smiled price for 988
