Where to start, well it's has the latest LCD backlighting technology (FALD) which allows it to control 85 different zones of the screen meaning better black level and contrast.

This has everything but 3D and there just isn't a better deal. Netflix 4K is there with BBC Iplayer and Amazon is coming in Q2 2016 with some bug fixes but the real point here is the amazing picture quality at this price point for a 65" 4K TV

ENJOY!

Best price yet. For the spec. alone, I don't think you can get better for the price. However, there have been many issues and bugs reported about this set. These issues mostly (but not all) centre around getting a 4K signal into the TV and how the TV handles it. A promised firmware update may or may not fix this.
This is also the gamble of whether this set will be updated to handle HDR. Some people have indicated a firmware update will enable this but there is no guarantee.

If the new Hisense TV sets that will be along probably in the next few weeks in the UK are similar to the H7-H10 announced at CES last month, then I don't see an equivalent back lit 65" TV in that line-up except for the top end H10 ULED model which will probably be priced at well over £2K. The H7C (which is flat anyway) that was announced is definitely not backlit at all making it go for the budget end of the market. These new sets though will all support HDR.
Therefore, I don't see a successor to the K720.

For this reason, I am sorely sorely tempted to press the buy button.
These things have terrible input lag as well, so terrible for FPS gaming.
Beat me to posting it! Great deal. Could have been my first deal post on HDUK. Hot hot hot.
Cheaper still with student discount

was amazed they gave the k720 FALD really, the 4K stutter people have mentioned on avforums is something I personally didn't notice at all so lucky me. Where is al this info on the new models please? thanks

as far as HDR well I just had to sent a 920V (that's a £2249 set) back due to bad yellow staining and did a non HDR and HDR comparison of the show Mad Dogs and there was no visible difference to me. They only bit of HDR that has looked better than SDR so far is the Exodus demo and having watched that a few times it's not much better. Again, to me but I think it's just very clever marketing to keep people wanting a new tv and it will work

It probably wasn't a HDR film

I quote:

The caveat with HDR — like 4K — is video content needs to be specially formatted for HDR in order for you to effectively "see more" colors. HDR content is coming — Amazon, Netflix, Technicolor and UHD Blu-ray have all announced plans to release videos and movies with HDR support either through streaming or optical discs

it is, the tv even comes up with a 'HDR IS NOW ON' notification
Actually considered this for the kitchen, but just so many issues reported on AV Forums & a lot of people have sent them back several times.

Here is a summary of a few issues - avforums.com/thr…-41
One hell of a lot of TV for the price. I've got their 58" flat 4k set and it knocks my old £2k 55" Samsung 8000 series into a cocked hat. FALD makes a big difference and I would describe it as almost plasma like both in its colours and blacks.

The best price yet so should get scorching.

Yeah, I had read that list very carefully as well. It is important not to disregard any of his points as they were important to him. I won't go through the list in detail here but I summarise that most of the concerns should be fixed in a firmware upgrade. It may mean relying on the built apps that still need to be added but I would be buying the set as advertised on the Amazon website which states "4K Amazon Prime Instant Video & HD BBC iPlayer coming very soon". If I can't get Netflix 4K or Amazon Prime 4K in a reasonable timeframe ( I hear it may be April now), then I will be sending it back even after the 30 day period.

Don't know about this model but my My 58" set has good (low) input lag - have noticed no issues with PS4 and I'm a keen gamer.

Game mode has to be on though - input lag is terrible without it.

As said, games look... amazing on it.
How would I get the student discount?

That was a "possibly April or May", nothing definite on that front either mate.

I get that it "looks ok" & appears to play ok, not to get input lag mixed up with motion lag. I'm purely looking at tech specs in game mode (50ms input lag), which I would put in the unacceptable level for anyone into FPS gaming.

Be a student ?

Or you can get hold of an NUS card via one of the methods posted on this site & do it that way.
is this the same panel as XT910 ULED?

No I think it's an 8 bit panel but there was some speculation on here recently about the 65" version of this TV actually been natively 10 bit

(Assuming same back end hardware as 58") input lag was significantly reduced by last firmware update. Can't remember exact figure but read a review saying now in the 30's.

No issues with FPS for me.
Interesting price
any promo codes you can stack with the student discount?
http://jambuair.xyz/7/a.pngGreat deals, Looks nice with a lovely strong stand, which it needs to be as the TV is extremely heavy. The build quality appears excellent. WiFi easy to set up. 4K looks brilliant on YouTube.

For the 58"? They sell it at Crampton and Moore online for £699 (Google them), Richer Sounds for the same price (in store only so phone the shop rather than check the website and don't forget to sign up for VIP club for free so you get a 6 year warranty). I had some hassle with the guy from the local Richer Sounds so I actually got John Lewis to price match it - it meant I only got a 5 year instead of 6 year warranty but I didn't want to give Richer Sounds my custom.

it's not, only the k720 is FALD. Your next real FALD option is the XT910 or JS9500 (the cx802's fald is ineffective)

The model number listed is incorrect - there is no such thing as a 58" K321 (the listing is for multiple TV's and the K321 tops out at 55"). According to the Hisense website all of their 58" TV's have 'local dimming' (LTDN58K700XWTSEU / HE58KEC730UWTSD). The K720 is curved and only available in 55" or 65" so isn't really relevant if you want flat and 58"... both the 700 and 730 (the same TV really...) have local dimming.

Why would you buy from Amazon anyway though? With 5 or 6 year warranties available at the same price elsewhere. The lack of a proper description will make getting a price match from somewhere else difficult.
