Vestel, you'll be better off going for the 65UK6300PLB if you want 65 inches for £699 or there's the 60" 60UK6200PLA for £599 with five year warranty at John Lewis.

I didn't realise Panasonic used Vestel. Are the two models you mentioned different?

The two models I suggested are both LG, their cheaper ranges but their build quality, menu and reliability will be far better than anything Vestel churn out.
Except the 65UK6300PLB is a RGBW panel.

The TX-65FX560B could also be RGBW, Vestel have been using a lot of LG Panels recently, especially in their bigger models.
I bought the 55 inch version of this but haven’t opened it yet. Am I better off exchanging for this?

Did you know when you bought it that it wasn't actaully made by Panasonic?

No I didn’t and I was told by the Richer Sounds staff to go for the Panasonic when I went to buy the Samsung. It was a rash purchase. I wonder why they recommend it...

So you bought it thinking you were buying a quality Panasonic product. Pretty disgraceful imho, Panasonic slapping their (former) good name on a generic Vestel chassis, Richer should also be ashamed of themselves, very surprising they're pushing these considering the high volume of returns they see with Vestel made models. The Samsung UE55NU7100 will be better in every respect.

How do you work out about this RGBW? Im after a Samsung 65" nu8000 a think its called and not sure if that's an RGBW, roughly £1100 at RicherSounds with blu-ray player

It isn't a RGBW panel. I'd rather not have a TV then buy either the LGs of the Vestel based Panasonic. The 600 above models ain't Vestels

Samsung use VA panels, they don't use IPS so no risk of RGBW - RGBW is red, green, blue and an extra white pixel which means they're not true 4K panels.

Yeah when I read up people said it was a good TV, I don't want the player so hopefully get £100 for that as I stream pretty much everything through my Plex.
I was tempted on OLED but they're still price for what I want, see the 8000 and thought yeah that'll do me lol

The fact a panel is a VA or IPS has nothing to do with it's RGBW pixel structure.

There has been a LG OLED TV posted on here for 1K. Which would work out the same price, once you sound the Blu ray player. Unfortunately it would mean losing 10" as it's a 55". I have a Panasonic OLED and love it.

Technically correct, but only LG manufacture large RGBW panels in both OLED and IPS LCD format.

To date, I've not seen a VA RGBW panel used in a large screen consumer display/TV.

Samsung only use VA Panels so it's safe to assume their LCD TV range won't be RGBW which was the point I was trying to make.

I've got a 55" TV now and find it a bit to small, its in my bedroom but have a really big room. Got a 100" project screen on the wall that looks good, plenty room for more but over 100" is just mental in a bedroom
I just want to dive into the world of 4k been saying it for ages and just never have, even my 60 year old man has 4k lol

I have seen a VA RGBW panel in none retail consumer products, in China. They are actually worst then the IPS versions
A OLED WRGB structure is completely different to a LCD RGBW.

I have a 65" and a projector so I know what you mean. The NU8000 for the money is decent. The local dimming isn't very good as it's edge lit. Next up for full array dimming would be the sony XF90 or Samsung QF8 but not sure what deals are currently available.

I seen the Sony one and just wasn't to sure to pay the extra or what! Can't bloody keep up with tech lol. The 50" Samsung I got my mam for Christmas is a bargain for £400 with the 6 yr warranty and 4k, I remember paying £1000 for a CRT 28" Sony Vega lol
I bought a sony 65” xf9005 and im really pleased with it. My son has just bought the lg 75” 6500pla and that looks very good for the money, but the sony is a fair bit better as it should be for the extra cost

Picture wise the Sony will be better, especially with HDR content. It has a higher peak brightness and more dimming zones. On the negative side the operating system is very laggy. The Samsung is good but not as good as the Sony. If most of your content is TV and gaming the Samsung will be ok. If you watch a lot of movies the Sony is better
