This 5 years, free soundbar, deal was on powerdirect.co.uk for £1099 until earlier today - it changed to £1199 minutes before I walked into RicherSounds to price check!

@mobily having the set now for almost a week, would you say its money well spent?

@mobily Sounds good! Theres lots of stuff around about the Youview stuff and disabling it either on here or via Google. Sounds like your loving it! Im certainly leaning more towards this as my first 4k set now. Does standard HD freeview look good on it?

Had a couple of hours tweaking and have the following views:

- Picture quality is very good when you can get the settings right. I'm still not convinced I have the best settings but it's getting there.
- The picture does degrade quite considerably at an angle of 30 degrees. The image looks washed out, even the wife noticed it! Could be an issue if you watch it at an angle regularly.
- YouView. What the hell is this rubbish? It's slow, randomly disappears and generally annoying. Currently trying to figure out how to disable it and just use Freeview.
- 4k videos on YouTube are excellent (no HDR though). I haven't tried Netflix yet which apparently does have HDR.
- The TV can be sluggish I.e press the action menu and it can be a couple of seconds before the menu appears.
- Haven't noticed any DSE or dark corners. It seems very uniform.
- Motion is good but I'm still unsure of the right settings.

The main thing to impress is the picture quality and let's face it that is what you want in a TV.

I'm interesting in this one as seems to be a good middle ground for a 4k set, but wondering if it's worth waiting to 2018 models?

I settled on the BT3 in the end. Better than what soundbars can do, and plus it's then an amazing Bluetooth speaker for spotify in the living room. I have since added a second hand BK subwoofer (xls200 mk2) to it and it's now heaven. I think quite a few people have this combo and some people have commented on this set up on av forums over the last few years.

I was interested in this model but unfortunately it's just a little wide to fit on my TV stand...

I've got one and it's amazing it sounds like 9.1 because there are small speakers in the top of the tall speakers, they are all wired separately from the amp. It works well with sky q. It's got good inputs and outputs and is good quality all round. I was happy paying £699.

Hi, just thought i'd comment on this.

I've had 2 of these in the last 6 months, twice the blu-ray/amp box has gone dead.
The second time I had to talk to LG who informed me it was beyond economical repair and had to be sent back to retailer. (its a 17kg box 1m long, not cheap)

Luckily both times I've had it refunded, it is a brilliant alternative to separates but just worth bearing in mind.

There is also a review on amazon stating this happened to them too.

This is also the cheapest price new.
Edited by: "Coolio103" 16th Jan

Somehow seems overpriced even though it's cheapest currently

They've got some gall calling it a 9.1 system. More like 5.1 plus virtual channels.

You would not want uhd bluray for this kind of money?

Ordered the UE49KS7000 from Curry's online yesterday. £849 and if you enter code 50LSTV at checkout price drops to £799 with free delivery and 5yr warranty. Not as good as OP but worth checking if u work for a relatively large company you may well have an employee benefits site. They usually give a bit of a further discount for most the big retailers via instant vouchers. I got a further 8% off for Curry's, so total cost £735 in the end. Good luck.

Ahhh ok. I have been looking for a while tbh. Getting a soundbar was a must - the tv's audio is pretty pants and I wanted to stick to Samsung as the Tv will play nice with the soundbar. It had to be multi-room wireless capable too and once you buy into one wireless multiroom system you can't really chop and change.

Up until a few weeks/ month ago the lowest priced soundbar that could do that was the HW-H750 which sells for about 400ish and has a humongous sub.

will definitely take a look at avforums what speakers did you end up getting?

boulder_boy

W829 is a better panel imho.


As a recent purchaser of the 55 inch version, I am very impressed.

I checked out several 50+ inch sets and Sony was by far the best within my price budget.

If I was going to buy a 4k set tomorrow, it would likely be a Panny AX. Good choice.

Interestingly enough, they included it in a group test of high end TV's run by HDTV test. All sets calibrated. All using reference content. Surprsingly, it didn't get a single vote for best TV overall (although it did win best 4k set by a landslide). Reason? It's still LCD at the end of the day. Can't match plasma or OLED. No matter how hard they try.

http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/result-201406013793.htm

(The doon't have one of mine in the group. Mine is a calibrated VT65. But they did have a ZT65 - which is very close to mine. And it still beat the OLED sets to best TV.)

But as I say, the AX's are very nice TV's. If I wanted 4k, I'd get one.

But, like many others on here, I don't plan on upgrading until there is something other than LCD stuff to make it worth my while...

Very good, I agree.
Informed AV tech buyers will always argue back and forth about which screen tech and features are best. Go to John Lewis or wherever, ask them to put a Sky HD signal into your set and take a good look. Put SD in too (because you will have to suffer SD too) if you like it, buy it.
I am waiting for cheap 4k oled (quantum dot or whatever will be nice) or even 8k (they will be on the market within 18 months)
I have a 60 inch LG 1080p from John Lewis. Three dead pixels on it out of the box that annoyed me for about 20 minutes, until I realised that I can't even see them from 10 feet away

sancheez

More to PQ than pixel count. The fact that set if 4k does not … More to PQ than pixel count. The fact that set if 4k does not automatically mean better PQ. I'd be willing to wager that if you put this TV and mine side by side, and played moving images from the same source (lets say - Baraka or Samsara on bluray, they're my benchmark), at approx. 3 - 4 metres viewing distance, the quality on my panel would be better. Despite being "only" 1080p. I looked at 4k sets when I bought my TV. None of them were as good as the 1080p one I ended up buying.This is still a good TV, don't get me wrong. But there are still quite a few 1080p sets out there that will still render better PQ than it ....



My own 4K set is the Panasonic 55" AX802 which I can say with all confidence will look superior put next to any 1080p screen.

I watch a lot of films and TV series and do a fair bit of console gaming so demand a superb picture.

For people that want to dip their toe in the world of 4K this set will suffice but it's all horses for courses. You get what you pay for.
