The Hisense N6800 at £100 cheaper is probably the best value for this sort of TV in 65" at the moment.

The hisense imo. But if the 65" is a must then the Sony ex70 is a little bit more expensive but a better Tv. The other option is spending the money on a better 55"

3 of the HDMI ports support HDMI 2.0b standard then a additional one port that doesn't. At least 2.0a is required for connected ps4 pro or uhd players outputting hdr

Thank you for that. Can't think why they do that. Surely the 2.0b is backward compatible with the lesser standard? So why not all the same? Is it really manufacturing cost-saving?
I'm a Poundland HDMI cable sort of guy so it's all a mystery to me.

They would be backward compatible, so the only reason I would imagine is cost saving.

They have the wrong pictures listed on their site...That's a 750V the 701 has a thicker bezel and depth....

Fake 4k panel on 65" Tv... nice. Yep, Hisense will be better choice

I'm not sure about LG but a lot of TVs at this price use third party chipsets so the port protocol support is tied into a lot of other features and considerations and not something decided independently.

But yes, it will come down to cost saving at some point in the parts chain.

The XE70 lacks a wide gamut backlight, so it's can't display as much of the HDR data. On the other hand Sony's tone mapping is better, so it may be more watchable for PQ-based HDR (HDR10 as opposed to HLG) even though it can't display the same colour range.

Or do you mean the Panasonic EX700?

Which is better... Panny ex700 or the Sony ex70? I'm torn right now.....!

Sorry the xe70. Whilst I agree for the price, the Hisense is a good Tv I just found it over saturated colours a little. I think the Sony certainly does a better job of upscaling SD and HD.
If I couldn't afford the Sony I would definitely have the Hisense

Ah, my mistake. I was going by the Pricespy listing but clicking through it appears to be a mistake and it's using the N5750 prices for Amazon/Very:
pricespy.co.uk/pro…665

This is typical of Currys marketing. Firstly the product is only available from two sellers Currys and PC World - one and the same shop. Secondly it was only at £1500 "from 06/07/2017 to 15/08/2017" the minimum amount of time needed to claim a price reduction, and it might not even have been for sale at every branch, just three will suffice.

This is the way they operate, change the model number and make it impossible to compare prices, that coupled with terrible customer service it's a real reason to buy elsewhere.

... I recall back in the day your tv decision was made by an off chance visit to your local highstreet electrical store, bought with cash or cheque, put in the boot of your car all in the same afternoon with little/no research required!

The title here ticks all the boxes and so does the “specifications” and the price is within my budget, but wait... this 4K tv could actually be fake 4K oh dear lord confused.com

He's referring to the RGBW panel...I wouldn't worry about that as not really noticeable in real world TV watching. Pavel76, whilst a despiser of RGBW panels, recently posted a deal for an LG with an RGBW panel himself. Go figure! Perhaps Pavel76 could explain why RGBW panels might be a concern, rather than just calling it fake!

:hotukdeals.com/dea…330

I think this TV has a great Web OS though. Go have a look at it next to other TVS and see if you like it. It's very subjective!

How would the LG compare to the Samsung 6100? I see that can be bought for £999 now

OOS
I should've bought at this price instead of waiting to see if it would drop again on Friday. It's now showing as £1,199.
