What's to say - the 65" Hisense curved TV from a few other popular threads but with a price drop... I think this is the lowest it's been.

A lot of TV for the money :0) and I'm very impressed with Hisense kit so far. I believe this set has FALD but I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong.

Make sure you choose 65" K720 to get this price.

Blurb:

4K Ultra High Definition & 4K Upscaling engine
Curved TV - an incredibly immersive viewing experience
Freeview HD - get the UK’s favourite TV channels in high definition
Smart Apps - enjoy 4K streaming on Netflix. 4K YouTube also available. 4K Amazon Prime Instant Video & HD BBC iPlayer coming very soon
HDMI 2.0, HDCP 2.2, HEVC & USB 3.0

Firmware fix / update allegedly imminent (I have no reason not to believe this but years of owning mobile phones has eroded my trust that promised updates always arrive!). I have a TV in the range that has the same electronics but a smaller panel - I've not experienced any issues myself.

Very impressed with those blacks though - best I've seen since my old plasma.

For gamers, input lag has not been an issue for me on PS4 - the last update improved game mode to bring it down to the 30's (some reviews have it at 50ms+ but they were pre-update).

Side by side it blows away my old Samsung 55" which cost £2k+ a few years ago.

Despite them being massive in other countries, I had never heard of Hisense until a few weeks ago. I wouldn't hesitate to buy Hisense again.
I did consider this but now thinking of skipping UHD and going straight to HDR TV instead.
Do they do a 3D version?

I dont think they do anymore. It was always £100 higher than the normal tv.

Hisense over LG every day of the week for me. Not at all impressed with LG TV's at the moment - they seem to have gone very budget. I don't like the 'magic' remote and for some reason almost all LG TV's seem to suffer from horrible input lag. It's also not great for watching football if that's important to you. No FALD, poor sound (although most would use a sound bar) and lots of complaints about reliability. The place where the LG will win out is with its apps - personally I use an Amazon Fire TV so apps don't make a difference to me.

I would really encourage you to try and see both of these TV's "in the flesh" (John Lewis is probably your best bet if you have one nearby) as I think most would prefer the Hisense.

LG model available at JL for £949, with £100 trade in for your old tv, bringing it down to £849 with a 5 year warranty, I'm really tempted by both these tv's.

LG still offer premium models, 850, 860 and 950's are the higher end LCD's, top end units are all OLED now.

I will. Direct to HDR. I won't be skipping 4K images. I'll just have a better experience of them.

4K and UHD aren't really the same anyway. UHD is consumer standard whereas 4K is cinematic standard. Much higher bitrate and colour depth in true 4K.

Hmmmmm, not everything will be broadcast/streamed in HDR so you won't be getting a better experience all the time - HDR to 4k is like 3D is to HD, optional not a standard.

UHD and 4k are EXACTLY the same standard when it comes to consumer products! Cinematic standards are nothing to do with consumer products!

I remember 3D. In fact working at TV Centre back in 2000 and seeing TC0 (3D studio there). I think HDR has better future prospects.

10 bit panel/HDR support with HDMI 2.0a. If you're going to buy an expensive 4k HDTV then make sure it has these.

It's not the best time to buy a 4k TV IMO another year would be worth the wait so these specs are more common, but needs must for some people.

HDR isn't a fad like maybe 3D was/is, because HDR fundamentally and objectively will improve the picture quality of anything that is encoded for it you throw at the panel. So it'll spread throughout every model and most content sooner rather than later and it won't go away. It's not a matter of preference like 3D. It's just better all the time it's used.

All this is combined under a 'UHD premium' moniker, so you know it has 4k and meets agreed HDR spec.
As Vulcan said, I think (and have read) it's better to wait for UHD Premium. This is why 4K TVs are coming down in price as retailers are realising a lot of people are waiting.

Sadly,couldn't justify dropping the kind of money required for a big, 4k OLED set and needed a new TV now. I don't think anything LG have in the same price range will touch the Hisense for picture / gaming.

Whats the bargain price you're offering?
Edited by: "Kevvo77" 1st Mar 2016
I bought this to off amazon for £970 when I called them to explain about some 4K content they did a partial refund of £195.50 so made it a very cheap tv
ive had 2 x k700 and 2 x k720, all have had really bad issues, bands on either side of the screen turning the martian film green, really bad light bleed, the longest ive had one last is 4 months.

Sure you get good and bad examples of evert tv but hisense quality control is rubbish, loads of people on avforums with bad ones and Hisense saying its fine but AO.com are usually good with returns.

im sure someone will say its Full Array Local Dimming and a bargain but if its badly made then its junk.

All the new 4K tvs out this month, save your money.
Just to add the Amazon instant video and youtube 4k update has been pushed back by months every month, now looking at May, if they ever do the update.
HEAT-TASTIC!

Nice find Lee.. was good at £999 with £700 off last month, so this makes it even better value
for money and it STILL blows all the others out of the water!
