Panasonic TX-50DX750B 50 inch 4K Ultra HD HDR 3D Smart LED TV £779 @ Currys inc 5 year warranty

Found 30th Dec 2016
Seen this in store yesterday at Richer Sounds, after a lengthy discussion with the sales guy it was the set I kept going back to, but was above my £800 budget having originally gone in to look at the £599 700B model.
Having looked at them side by side the 750B did seem a big step from the 700B, refresh rate on this I believe is 120Hz and the 700B 60Hz.

Picture was really good - Anyhow today I see that Currys are offering £50 off any TV over £599 so it comes down to £779 and you still get a 5 year warranty included, so probably not worth asking John Lewis to price match as Currys is only 5 mins down the road and John lewis a good 30 miles away.

Use code TV50 to get this price online or instore

Could try Quidco as well @11% but unlikely to get both,

The sd on this set was ok too I took a good nose at it and had them run some sd footage. But the thing is 1 I hate the white of lcd it hurts my eyes, 2 the jittering picture does my head in, 3 anything over £350 for me then you may as well buy an oled and treat it as money off a real tv. I have reviewed so many in the flesh and to be honest its degrees of crapness you are willing to tolerate. Im back home watching sd on my panny plasma commercial screen and the picture is warm, lovely colours, no judder, deep blacks (hd is obviously great). The day lcd came out I hated them with a passion and nothing has changed all these years later. Rant over

Thanks for the post I thought this tv looked ok in the flesh. Sony close second. Sammy forget it they are failing and lg was ok. Strangley some of the 1080p screens displayed sd better than the 4k ones but all had dire juddering.

Ridiculous, panny plasmas from 3 and 4 years ago are still a better picture than most sets in 2016. Is TV tech going backwards or what

I guess it comes down to looking at the full package, Panny Plasmas are beautiful and never fail to impress me but then they have the high power draw and next to useless if they fail as pretty cost prohibitive to repair and are bloody heavy things.
My 19 year old 1.9 Diesel Peugeot would do a genuine 65mpg and would give me none of the problems of a modern day Diesel and with better MPG, but they say it was polluter and not good for the environment which is pretty much the same reason Plasmas went the same way.

There's always one.

Better off (IMO) with the Samsung KS7000 - it's an inch smaller, no 3D and 20 quid more, but the picture is pretty much unbeatable in this price bracket.

I looked at the KS7000 in Currys as Richer Sounds did not have a display model, I find all Samsungs do not give a realistic picture that it almost feels like they are trying to hard, but worse was the screen Judder, when the guy rigged up a 1080 feed it was stuttering terrible, if you read some of the recent online reviews this was not a one off and it seems a common problem across the Samsung range.
John Lewis reviews are quite damming.....

Yes, with default settings they're terrible (especially in store mode!), but its easy to calibrate.

Ironically, the fix for the juddering is to turn off all of the anti-judder settings - ridiculous i know, but it seems to work, Next time you're in currys have a play, put it in home mode and turn off the motion crap - you'll see the difference straight away.

To be honest i have looked to upgrade my 8 year old 40" sony over the last year or so and have tried 3 sets in total and all seemed to have worse (less natural in one way or another) picture quality than the old set. Far too many settings to adjust and despite spending ages tweaking and researching best settings on line still couldn't find a suitable setting. I have resigned myself to keeping it until i see an oled deal.

dont mack me off

Agreed, best off holding on for oled to come down in price a little

All I can tell you is my Panny Commercial panel as old as it is kills these in terms of picture quality. OLED is when the real jump will come in. Lets see what gets announced in the trade shows in Jan. Hopefully prices will fall.

Yip I am doing exactly that at Richer Sounds tomorrow.

I agree with the oled comments but don't think you will see a decent panel from a decent brand under £1k for a 50 plus until early, mid 2019. I was thinking to spend £700 odd now and probably not buy again until 2020 when a good oled is less than a grand, from what I have read oled is still untested over the longer term and only 2 players at the moment, until that increases prices will ramain high .

oled tv's are coming down at this rate you should get a 50" for around £900 in 12 months or black friday deal.

I agree totally, hence why choice is hard. But Im looking 1-1.2k and 5-6yrs warranty and Im in. So at the mo I can wait.
