This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Been on the hunt for either a Samsung QLED or a LG NanoCell 55 Inch all week.

The best price I've found for this TV so far was at Currys for £649.

Decided to take the risk on this a week before Black Friday. Fingers crossed it doesn't come down anymore.

Seems a good price
Any thoughts on the model?
I'm so out of the loop on TVs, but I need one. Somewhere in the 400-600 range, 55" is fine. What's the general view on the best options? There's too many choices.
Did you found any difference between 8600 and 8500 ?
How many Years warranty does amazon gives?
Had a wander around Curry's last night and they had their variant (8600) on display.Hard to say from the store viewing, of course, but it looked pretty good. Think it's decent for the price.
I've been thinking about this model along with the Samsung RU8000.
Now I've just been reading about the Panasonic GX800 which looks good too and is reduced to £599 at the moment on Amazon (49"version)

Brilliant TV. The only downside if you are very picky is that the black bars when you are watching a film in the dark are not true black. I have the SJ model which is similar to this, but from 2017. I have a ps4, not pro. I don't use game mode, instead I use the truemotion /soap opera effect and all the games are like 60fps

But surely better viewing in the average lit room compared to the advantages of oled blacks?

yes but we were talking about 55 inch not 49, you need to write that down
Amazon warranty is only 1 year. Currys will price match but they've sold out in all stores and earliest delivery is December. AO have it with a 10% code which makes it the same price as Amazon.
Anyone got any idea what the uk’s model number for the Hisense H9F?, cheers

They're actually different models in the US. I think the OS is different, so harder to compare.

Cheers,I know it’s a 2019 model and rated the best mid range tv on several sites for picture quality,I’ll email them and find out
Just got Currys to price match this, which means you get the 5 year guarantee and the Black Friday price promise - stock is coming on 28 November and 5 December, so you will have to wait a couple of weeks. Worth the 18 minute phone call!

Had to do a fair amount of digging, and I'm still not sure all the specs are completely correct, but this site gives a full spec comparison:
zkelectronics.com/com…uk/

after much deliberation I ordered this via Amazon, but pushed the delivery out till after Cyber Monday just in case a better deal comes along.
Scratch my earlier spec comparison, I'm no longer sure what spec this telly has. Amazon, Currys, AO, and LG all list different specs

E.g. it either has 4x HDMI 2.0, or 2.1 (or only 3x according to Amazon). Or 3x USB 2.0, or 3x USB 3.0. I may also have 40W speakers (20W + 20W subwoofer) or just a 20W speaker?

Just how is a consumer supposed to make a decision these days

I missed this deal and really want to get this TV. Did Currys say they would price match when they had it in stock, or did you pay on the phone call in advance? Trying to work out if I can call on 28th to order and tell them they said they would price match the Amazon price...

No sorry, they price matched based on what was available when I called. Give it time though, it should come down.
