Samsung UE55MU7000 can be had for £699 from JL with a price match. For £100 more you get 4 HDMI ports 4K. This only has 2. 1000nit peak brightness (true HDR) and 120hz screen instead of 60hz. You should spend the extra £100 imo

edit (560 peak brightness. Still decent HDR imo. Anything above 500 will be okay

Tv boffs come out PLEASE
this deal seems tempting..
HEAT ADDED
Good for normal and HD viewing. Apparently, lacks high brightness (nits) so 4K HDR will be poor.

ULED just mean 4k i think, not to be confused with OLED and QLED
only one thing missing .... Freesat
Great TV for the price a solid mid range TV
Very good price, ULED uses quantum dot technology and wide colour gamut. For a 55inch TV at this price that's very good.
Unless you are watching this TV straight on, I wouldn't recommend it. The viewing angles are dreadful.

It’s the same as any TV with a VA panel, the benefit being that you get much better black levels than a TV with an IPS panel.

Samsung still has an 8 bit panel + FRC so technically can't display true HDR.
This has got 4 HDMI

QLED should not be confused with OLED either.

(I would imagine ULED and QLED have similarities, could be wrong)

It can’t do 1000 nits. Peak brightness is 560 on it. If it was 1000 it’d be UHD premium certified.

The Hisense also has 4 HDMI connectors not 2. It has 2 v2.0 and 2 v1.4.

Good point about peak brightness. I said it only had 2 4K HDMI ports. 1.4 isn't 4K.
Bottom line you're MUCH better off spending £100 more

Not according to display specifications it's not >

displayspecifications.com/en/…b04

10 bit (8bit + FRC) so definitely not a 10 bit panel. It's an 8 bit panel and using dithering to approximate the colours it can't really display.

Input processing is 10 bit but the panel is 8 bit plus dithering.

displayspecifications.com/en/…b04

Input processing is 10 bit but the panel is 8 bit plus dithering. So it doesn't do HDR properly, an approximation or attempting to trick the brain is not the same as it actually being able to display the full colour gamut.

I guess I'm being picky, the real HDR experience is more than just the panel bit depth. A proper HDR experienced is achieved by a TV using FALD (full-array local dimming). Without a decent amount of dimming zones it amounts to not much. Excuse me been drinking whiskey again. Happy New Year! Oh that's tomorrow, ah well that's my excuse

I’d trust Samsung’s website over that. They said one of LG’s TVs recently, some 800 model, was a 10 bit one. It wasn’t.

That’s not the same TV. you’re using an American review. Their MU7000 isn’t the same as ours. Just like last year our KS7000 was their KS8000.

Look at the difference in the stand. Their MU7000 is our MU6400.

Sorry you misunderstand me I posted rtings.com not for you to go and look for the TV model but because it explicity states in terms of importance the factors for picture quality. So you should ascertain from reading that site that just having a 10 bit panel is not the be all and end of of getting a decent HDR picture, far from it, it's just one component, you have to consider back lighting, zonal local dimming and with regard to peak brightness, there's more factors to consider than just the panel bit depth.

I agree on that completely, but that wasn’t the original point. MU7000 in 55” and above is a 10 bit panel. That’s all.

Don't talk nonsense, it's not the same for all LED, LCD, QLED TVs and you don't have to spend £1400 on a OLED for better viewing angles. As @Miles mentioned above here VA has deeper blacks. IPS has better viewing angles. It all depends what your requirements are. If you want better viewing angles look elsewhere. The panel and the picture processing on this Hisense TV is average at best.

It's not the worst TV on the market by any mean. For £600 you can't complain.

Here are its positives: decent blacks, 4K looks good, HD looks decent, SD channels looks adequate. TV is well constructed and the quality of remote is nice to hold and use. Hisense's VIDAA U smart interface runs well and the menus are simple to navigate.

The negatives: narrow viewing angles: it will lose some of its quality when viewed at an angle. Forget about watching HDR content on this TV, it doesn't have the capability. Poor motion processing and handling.

Thanks! How narrow is narrow? I know what you mean about viewing angles - but is it so bad that if you sit on ‘the other sofa’ then it will be unwatchable? Or just a bit faded? It’s all so subjective to what is acceptable isn’t it. All that said - I hate screen blur and tearing so probably not for me either way then. Shame! Like you say - £600 quite reasonable!

I don't know about the 55", I have the 50" and it is still watchable. I would say if you go off 30 degrees it starts to lose quality, the colour fades, it looks washed out.

I believe the OP was stating that the Samsung can be fed a 4K signal for all HDMI ports, whereas with the Hisense you have only two which can handle 4K.

The Hisense can take 4K through all its ports, it's just two of them are limited to 60Hz. The other two are 30Hz for 4K.
