​why the Samsung's produce a cracking picture with qled, which are brighter than oled. oled just gave deeper blacks?

QLED is just a marketing name for Samsung's high end range of LCDs. OLED is an entirely different technology.

​i know that it wasn't the question though. the guy said it's a lot to pay for non oled tech?

Looked at this TV and the picture in store looked better than the ks7/8000 also a 10 bit panel. Don't know which to buy.

All the instore pictures are faked, go back and ask them to set each machine to "Expert bright room", this is the setting you will use at home and will let you compare the true picture.
I have this set, got on black friday, and I am well pleased. Take time to set it up right and it is great but you only get out what you put into the set up.

What's the difference between this and the 55UH850V?

I've spent weeks trying to figure this out, even asking LG, with the only difference being a slightly better processor performance.. originally the 850 was claimed to be 8bit/FRC but LG themselves told me they were both 10 bit and that wasn't customer service, that was the tech guys... the 950 is a lot sexier tho!

It isn't 'just' deeper blacks. Contrast makes a big difference to perceived picture quality. A FALD or OLED screen with an effective >10,000:1 contrast just looks better than a 1200:1 contrast screen like this. There are very other improvements too of course, like less reflective surfaces and so on.

​the new Samsung qled's will produce 100% colour volume at 2000 nits , that's got to rival oled's for picture quality?

Yes but with a poor backlight unless its FALD so for dark scenes OLED / FALD would still be far better. For brighter scenes will be fine.

Well.... I'm getting a bonus this year for the first time in a long time, so what with the price reduction, the £75 off code and the other half getting 8% off through work thought sod it, you only live once! Thanks for replying though.

​there you go then 50 50 for and against so it does rival oled's

Just a note for anyone looking to pick up one of the last 3D TV's. I've demoed the 3D on a few of these LCD/LED's and for some reason, they are too sensitive with respect to there viewing angle. The result of this being a ton of crosstalk on a portion of the screen irrespective of where you view it from. The OLED's on the other hand are perfect and don't suffer this issue. Its almost like LG have purposely fitted the 3D filter incorrectly to make you pay the extra for the OLED. The OLED is worth it though.

Be very careful with chasing nit levels when considering buying a TV. Just remember that by viewing something very bright is effectively shining a bright light into your eyes. It looks great for half an hour until your eyes become tired and you end up having to turn this bright light down. LCD/LED's get there contrast by going brighter, OLED's get there contrast by being able to go darker. If your viewing TV's in the bright lights of a shop, LCD/LED's can look great. In your own home however, OLED's deliver as much contrast without trashing your eyes.

​possibly, there is an argument to and for everything. everybody at the moment is championing the ks7000 great TV but if your watching it in SD it's awful. you should choose a TV depending on what source you are going to use on it. people go on about HDR but there is hardly any content out there so it doesn't matter at the moment. this is all just people's opinion like oled's some people will prefere a brighter picture.

Pretty sure this is £1099 at selfridges. I guess £20 extra after voucher might be worthwhile for a more reliable guarantee...?

I agree, that's pretty much what I was saying; don't believe the marketing hype regarding nit levels and HDR. Goto a store, get them to load up lots of sources including SD, (4 Music is a great test,) turn off all the processing settings and spend a good hour. I find when testing that the difference in TVs when viewing high quality is very small. Put some SD on and the differences can be huge.
