Out of curiosity, where did you find the input lag?

Which 58" tv will be better for same price ?


UE55MU7000... It's 3" smaller but it's a real 10 bit panel. Much higher peak brightness so HDR is better. Also supports HDR 10+, voice remote, and arguably better OS amongst other things. Currently £799 @ Richer Sounds with 6 Year Guarantee. Probably get it cheaper too. It does not however have 3D hence for the select few who want that.. this is a good option.

120Hz Panel
8 Bit + FRC
Edge LED
HDR 10
MVA Display
42ms response time (Not so good for gaming but figure may be wrong)
2016 Model

I hope this helps. Much better TVs for the price imo Unless of course you are bored of seeing 3D in the real world and want it to stare at in your lounge too.

This TV put me off Panasonic. When I was looking to replace this POS (poor TV) I called a few AV shops and told them of my experience one said he had the same problems as I did. Inaccurate picture quality and blue dots on dark movies. 32970063-EH2q0.jpgThis was Netflix 4k at full bit rate.

Thanks for the information. Panasonic must be playing a panel lottery / not calibrating the screen properly.
I don't like playing the lottery when buying a TV.

Like I said a major AV retailer had the same problem. The display model was fine he got a boxed unit to take home and it looked like mine.

The MU7000 is 10bit on the 55inch version. Personally 3" on a 55" tv won't make much difference and there are few TVs @ 58". Some have paid £699 for the MU and I believe there is a deal for £729 going on at a garden centre which John Lewis would price match though- that's from memory. I'd buy the samsung over this or even go back to the 2016 Samsung 55KS7000 series if you want even more picture quality wise - reliantdirect @ £749. It's a deal for the TV as it adds 3" and 3D but for the other aspects, PQ, OS and other such areas it loses. Everyone can decide for themselves but the additions on this viera are somewhat niche from my experience.

I'd snatch the KS7000 tv all day long...its replacement M7000 is in many ways an inferior picture quality
I bought the 750 DX 58 inch for £530 on ebay but not there any more. some clouding can be seen with backlight on 60 but putting down to 58 55 its gone and very good blacks on screen.

AVforum, tech rader and 4k.com reviews say 10 bit. Display spec can be wrong and is wrong sometimes. On 55" or greater in this range it's 10-bit leaving the 49" + 40" with 8bit+frc

I stand corrected, There should be more clarity on the subject.
Bought this last week, excellent TV, very high quality.

That looks like compression artifacts and a low bitrate/low resolution source to myself. Definitely not exclusive to this TV. As you say it’s Netflix, is it possible that your internet speed is too low or that something is being downloaded on another device thereby sucking your speeds needed to stream Netflix in a decent quality?

Following on from this, last week I got a price match via John Lewis for this TV at £699 with 5 year warranty. Lower input lag for gaming, higher HRD peak. 120hz 10bit, supports HDR10+ via firmware update. 3" won't make a massive difference, so the mrs says to me. the MU7000 is probably the best tv under £1000. If you can find it on sale anywhere for £699 £729 etc you should snatch it up. Would rather have that than a worse tv 3" bigger.

In the grand scheme of things the info with regards to Hdr isn't important without good local dimming so 10bit or 8 bit +frc both the Samsung nor the panasonic will be very good. The panasonic has better black levels and that fact is more important for picture quality
BTW the code TV70 is valid on ANY TV over £700, not just this one.
The 55mu9000 is 899, much as i want 3d i think im going for this. Got it on price promise wirh JL so will go to tge shop and check it out as reviews are sparse and reviwed at £1800 tvs im sure revieeing it at 900 quid it would be better received
Samsung UE55MU7000 does this definatel yhave a 10 bit panel?

Why would you want a stand that goes in front of the screen? Ok you have to be at an acute angle to see that but just looking at the pictures it annoys me. I'd have to replace it with some other mount.

The 902 is in a different league entirely. Probably the best led of 2016.

Refurb can be had direct from Panasonic on eBay if you lucky for as little as £630

I agree.
Have the 802 downstairs ,& 902 upstairs,
NO probs.
Must be unlucky with the panel.
It's a fantastic price!
It's tempting for me as it's 120hz.

Have you seen it for £630? Very tempting. I've got a dx750 but if I could find 902 for this kind of money I wouldn't hesitate a moment.

Displayspecifications website clearly says 8 bits + FRC in 55" MU7000


The 55" is 10bits and 120hz native, and also an input lag of only 23ms.
The 49" version is 8bits+FRC, and also only 60hz.
