WTF kind of excuse is that?!?!


He sits on the floor, legs apart with TV resting on them. Just can't spread his legs wide enough.

It took you 6 months to work that out?


reading comprehension..
Looks good, 5 year warranty too.

Be warned though - HUKD has it’s very own back office of TV deal critics.

Just saying

A little annoyed that I can’t see the tv product code on the website!

I picked up one of these TVs about 6 months ago for a similar price. It's fantastic value but I unfortunately had to return it because the feet were so far apart. Thankfully the Costco return policy is great!
Is this in store too? I have my annual voucher to spend.
Is this proper HDR10? I’ve seen other TVs that say they are but turn out to be 8-Bit + whatever the other term is.

you need to measure your TV stand b4 buying a new tv cause if the legs are too wide for the unit the tv won't sit on it....I got lucky last time as mine just made it on the tv unit by a baw hair. 😰😰
LOL - it just seems to me a very silly excuse! I've not used a stand for years - wall mount FTW!

It is indeed not full 10 bit. It is 8bit +FRC.

Cheers. And back to looking for a decent, reasonable price one....
I bought the 43inch version, and took it back the next day, the picture quality is shocking! even after adjusting the picture, save up and buy a samsung.

You'll do well to find an actual 10bit HDR 4k TV for under £600-£700. Imho HDR is overrated and gives the picture an unnatural look with the colour.

Not sure there has been any 55 inch 10 bit set below ~£700, never mind £600. For example the first 10 bit LG is the 55SK8000PLB and Amazon have that at the moment for £799 - and that's the lowest price its been anywhere since release as far as I can find.
Nm the 55SK8000PLB is a 8 bit + 2 FRC not true 10 bit set, so above was incorrect, but really shows that true 10 bit sets are not cheap.

Unfortunately not

Yes
However IQ smart remote not included

Costs around £30-40

Is used for the AI aspect of the tv

You should try both 10 bit and 8+frc side by side if possible. Loads of reviewers reckon you can't tell the difference unless you really look for it.

I'm hoping to get a X1X at some point. Would a TV with 8+FRC still work on it? From what I'd read I though it had to be true HDR10's.

Not sure with the xbox1x.
Don’t bother with this: it will be an 8 bit panel, with a peak brightness too low for a decent HDR implementation.

The One X should display HDR content on an TV which supports HDR10. Note that 8 bit+ FRC panels can do this, but you shouldn’t buy them.

I had to do the same thing with a 49" lg before, the legs are to far apart to sit on a tv unit. I had to pay an extra 300 and get the higher model that had a centre stand which turned out stronger and more sturdy anyway. I find the ones like in post seem very easy for kids to push over

Aye, I would rather have a tv with the picture calibrated correctly than HDR which is too dark and has oversaturated colours.
Any reviews of this anywhere guys?
I'm thinking between this, Sharp TV on Costco or this Toshiba TV with a 6yr warranty.

Any advice would be great!

Definitely, had a few close calls with my 3 year old rocking the tv. Picked up a universal stand from Amazon for £40

Not sure about the sharp as haven’t seen/owned one however based on experience with the Toshiba 65” model , I wouldn’t recommend getting the Toshiba .
Needed repairing twice within 12 months and eventually died so we had to get our money back
