This is a great price, thanks OP. I've just added the price and the merchant into the title, and some of the offers available on the product page - hope that helps! I've also given you some heat! Nice find
Is this an IPS display? Also, does it only come with 1 year warranty from Currys?
Voted hot
Wow...very tempting. I would def want a longer warranty though, and I dont think John Lewis have this one

8bit hdr is not real hdr. It's marketing trickery by calling it hdr, they know most consumers just think hdr=hdr. Not the case, there are true hdr capable tv's and fake hdr. This is a fake hdr tv. For true hdr, you need to buy a high end tv. This is a mid range tv with a big screen size.

Most 10 bit panels don't have *real* hdr anyway or struggle with dimming.

The obvious temptation of this TV is clearly its size.

Human eye can most certainly tell the difference. There is a massive difference in the colors. Just go to a showroom. It's easy to tell which tv is really high quality and which is just an average one.

Of course I'm talking about the difference between a 70" and would be considered a normal sized living room tv, 50-55". For 1,000 you could get a far superior 55"

Cinema picture quality is usually horrible btw, went recently for the first time in years and was shocked by how bad the black levels were and the fuzziness, and the fricking exit sign reflection. I'd rather watch it on my 5.5" smartphone.
Bargain!

People don't go to the cinema for the picture quality, they are going to see movies that can only be seen there or as a social event. Buying a home tv is a different case. Most people who buy 70"+ tv's would actually be better off with a smaller one considering how close their sofas are to the tv and would get better picture quality at the same time.

Always good advice here,
If you had £600/£700 and wanted a 55 inch, which one would you choose and why.. thanks.
Cold! Not 8K... 4K is old tech, plus it's not even OLED (I'm just kidding by the way).

What about Richer Sounds they price match and give you 6 years standard warranty. Actually scrap that Curry's always give odd codes on tellies so they don't price match so won't work in reverse. Always cheaper in richer sounds anyway to be fair.

Also there's only about 5 HD free to air channels sadly when TVs have gone 8k now. The only thing taking advantage of hd and 4k in my house are games consoles and netflix. Even hen theyre not native resolution or good bitrate

3d bluray killed by 4k craze now. They still need to work on 3d as it wasn't too great... apart from when you watch the discovery channel. Lol
Very tempting, 99% sure this will be using one of Sharps excellent VA panels with plasma like contrast ratios. Shame about the warranty.

I saw one these earlier in the year, side by side with one of Samsung’s 75” low end models. Looks nice, metal back, nicely finished and blew the Samsung away when it came to picture quality, better viewing angles and deeper blacks.

Warranty is a killer for me though.
