Wow! Even with the Christmas drop in prices of 4k TVs, this is a bargain!

I'll admit that 4K tv's do look amazing... in the shops due to the looping 4K video edit they are connected to. But, with a complete lack of 4K media, there is absolutely no point in purchasing one if these TV's just yet. By the time suitable media forms and content become widely available, you will just have vastly outdated technology which you paid way over the odds for initially.

4k is available although admittedly sparse for now but if we all adopt this principle nothing will ever take off or move forward

This is a great TV. I bought one from John Lewis at this price in November with 5yr guarantee. Very pleased.

Upscaling is probably worth it at this price though. It's the reason most in the shops look good!

Upscaling is not the reason they look good, its the 4K native content feed thats connected to them. You show me ANY tv where a standard SD source looks like HD on a standard 1080P set. If you are cannot tell the difference between a hi resolution or ultra high resolution source played at the native screen resolution, you are the type of person this marketing is aimed at.

I agree to some extent about technology moving forward but I would rather not be one one guinea pigs in a market that is currently moving very rapidly with regard to standards and compliances. Just look at 3D, there were 4 competing technologies and still none has come forward as a clear leader. The 3D market is now virtually redundant before it started and is now just an "add-on gimmick". Same with OLED, who's buying into that vastly superior technology?

I'm waitng a while until the market settles and we have some 4K conent to use on these sets. You don't buy a 4K set to "upscale"!

not really true.
If Sky and Virgin and movie companies released stuff to watch then I would buy.
but I'm not watching 720p sky and 1080p bluray on a 4K TV. Seems pointless.

that's a great price!

no it wouldn't. I get a new tv every couple of years, and my 55" 4k samsung quite clearly has the finest picture of them all. netflix 4k and blurays look especially good, and sky also looks better than on my last tv, a 1080p LG 3D offering. don't justify not getting 4k by saying there's no difference to a 1080p tv, because of course, that would depend on the 4k tv.

Comparing Samsung to LG isn't exactly a level playing field though

Apart from SD everything looks much better on this. 720p is actually amazing - really.

Spent Xmas watching a 1080p TV which I thought was very good until I came home and realised how much better this one is.

regardless of your opinion about these tv's, that is just your opinion. blurays and sky do look better on my 4k than on any of my 1080 tv's. whether a large investment is worth it or not because there isn't a lot of 4k material available, is completely subjective and personal depending on a persons disposable income, willingness to splash the cash, and how much use and enjoyment they would get out of the tv.

upscaling of these (any) 4k tv do lose sharpness, I see a degraded picture as I could experience already with a Samsung, not worth for that. Netflix 4k quality is not any better than what we would get on our bluray player due to the low bitrate. The only good point would be for PC use, wondering if anyone knows if this particular tv would do 60hz at 4-4-4 croma, not 4-2-0 or 4-2-2.
Anyone knows??

If you have a pc up to the job, ,more and more games are supporting 4k resolutions so saying there is no compatible media is not true. In the same way that the last gen of consoles helped push HD tvs, pcs and steam boxes could do the same with this.

That being said you aren't going to see much of a difference on a 42" set.

The site is called hotukdeals. If you paying for an extra £200 for nothing more than a gimmick that is redundant at the moment, wouldn't you call the cheaper TV a better deal? Pick a 1080p tv and a 4k tv from the same price range and the 1080p tv would destroy the 4k tv at 1080p content.

utter nonsense

and besides, if you're comparing a 1080 tv to a 4k at the same price point, you're comparing 2 different products.

as someone has already pointed out, the only bad comments about 4k come from folk who don't have one.

But if your previous TVs are all LG's and you upgrade to a Samsung, then you're endorsing the superior brand, not the 4k, which was what you were saying was resulting in the better picture. To compare that you would need two level priceband Samsungs to compare 4k and non-4k. Yes this may be a great tv for the price, but I was responding to you saying that 4k is worth it right now.

They are both TV's, using the same basic technology, displaying the same 1080p content. The only difference is that one is 4K and much more expensive.
The statement that '4k is no better than 1080 except for on the very few 4k netflix programs available' is true. I would go as far to say that a 1080p display would be better except for on the very few 4k netflix programs available. I understand that there is slightly more content than netflix but not many people use it.

Anyone with a 4k display is just showing off at the moment, there's little/no content and all the streaming options are bunk as the bitrates are so low a decent 1080p blu-ray or rip would look better.

Scaling/pixel doubling isn't the solution and it's also utterly pointless unless you're a) getting a MASSIVE screen b) sitting under 2m away.

Your eye can just about resolve 1080p at about 3m on a 55" screen or thereabouts. 4k at 3m or more on a 55" or smaller display is a waste of time as the human eye cannot resolve the detail/doesn't have sufficient angular resolution.

Will I get a 4k display eventually? Undoubtedly as that's the way the industry is trending and I likely won't have a choice. Sadly, at the moment, it's just a gimmick that is being used by the manufacturers to drive their annual sales figures. Much like 3D was.

like i've already said, whether 4k is worth it is very subjective. all i will say, is that my own 4k tv has the best picture i've ever seen, outside of the showrooms. and everyone who visits my house is in awe at the picture, regardless of what tv they have at home. and, just for the record, i don't tell people its 4k, unless they ask.
thats why i think its utter nonsense when people tell me that '4k tvs aren't any better than 1080 tvs if only showing 1080'.
i can see it with my own eyes. so can all my friends and family.
now, if someone who actually owns this particular tv said it wasn't very good, i could accept that. but for non 4k owners to say that 4k as a product is no better than 1080 is just a huge generalisation and is just rubbish.

I sit close (within 6 foot) so would be worth it for me. The article doesn't say not to buy one, it explains how the eye sees - where you sit in terms of distance make a difference.

Combined with a upscaling 4k blue ray player my 4k tv is absolutely a class act.How many 1080p blue rays exist ? How many more cretins are to claim there is no content ?......tip. Seeing is believing.

Good price and a good Tv but I'll wait until I can get a 4k full hd set

i couldn't tell you for this particular tv. i sit about 2.8m from my tv which is 55", and at this size and distance, you can definitely see the better picture quality. i don't really care what these articles say about my eyes not being able to tell the difference. this is simply untrue. my eyes don't lie.
