Good price for the model. Currys is selling it for £949 (but it's always worthy to ask for price match based on their price promise).

I'm suggesting to use price match from Currys, as they're selling it with 5 years warranty, while AO only 1 year.

Is this better or worse than last years LG 55ks8500??
Edited by: "fame" 3rd Aug 2019
1. Samsung is curved - extremely big NO for me personally
2. LG does Airplay2 AND home hub. Samsung promised airplay2 only in some models only.

Samsung Quantum dot appears to be equivalent to LG Nanocell, so picture quality should be comparable.
And this particular Samsung model doesn't appear to be oficially avalaible on UK market

I’ve been looking at these - you can can get the LG 55SM8600PLA from richer sounds the same price but 6yr guarantee & possible £125 gift card - I can’t decide to bite or not (as I’m thinking do I just wait til OLED becomes a bit cheaper)

The 8500 is a much better tv, hdmi 2.1 plus is full array rather than edge lit. Interestingly the 8500 was £799 at ao last week so wouldn’t be surprised if it dropped again soon.

Did you mean 8600 ?
"Making the most of its Nano Cell tech, the 55SM8600PLA features Local Dimming"
So what's Nanocell. A slightly worse version of OLED?

Nope. It's still LCD, but every pixel (or every small group of pixels) has it's own backlight, so you can expect better black levels. Also there should be no burn-in involved.

No I meant the 8500 which is notably better than the 8600. Local Edge Lit Dimming is different to Full Array, see link below:
Local Dimming vs Full Array
