Has anyone managed to get staff discount on top of the above price, When I tried they couldn't apply TV10 code in store for either pickup or delivery, and I have been told TV10 is old valid online only, is it correct??

Gosh, this is expensive for a TV! I bought a perfetly good secondhand Panasonic Viera set for £50 the other day, it should be good for at least another decade (I know, I'm a tightwad - and I this post if probably good if one is into that sort of thing).

If buying second hand TVs are your thing, then I don't think OLED TVs are your thing.....

Not much point in this comment! Anyway back to the post - Heat best price with sound bar so far I think


Edited by: "Jaybeam" 10th Mar

I had my heart set on the Samsung UE55KS8000 but this is very tempting since it's not much more to get OLED. I prefer the OneConnect box with the Samsung for connectivity, but could overlook it.

Does anyone know if this soundbar can work with rear speakers?

Anyone know what the warranty period is with Argos?

Bit of digging and found this: "...I have looked into this and this comes with a standard 1 year LG warranty" from Q&A here.

Yes that's the only problem and because it's a voucher code I don't think JL will price match. I must admit I would rather have it cheaper without the sound bar

This is a stunning TV have had the C version for several months and love the picture quality

I wouldn't touch an OLED set that wasn't backed up by a decent warranty, i'd rather pay more and buy from the likes of Richer or John Lewis.

I wouldn't buy any TV for that money tbh, every single one always has dead pixels or uniformity issues. I tried 4 KS7000's and they all had dead pixels and massive light bleed from the bottom left side especially. They all have such high latency and stupid processing and software that slows everything down.

TVs are plain bad, but for some reason people don't care.

I can remember seeing the first plasma 42" screens which cost upwards of £10 000 ! Within a few short years the price when I bought my first one had fallen to £1000, continued improvements of Full HD etc the price still fell to south of £500.
When LCD came out it was expensive, soon trumped by LED which was even more expensive, but the price fell quickly and today the latest & greatest thing to have is OLED which is following that same path, with silly prices in the beginning which are quickly falling as the manufacturing technology matures.
Within a couple of years expect the cheaper OLEDs to be sub £1000 for this size but possibly some new technology in the wings just waiting to make your nice new set obsolete, all at a price of course.

The big question is when to pull the trigger and my feeling is that if you can hold on then it's going to be much better two years down the track.

I must admit, dead/stuck pixels annoy me but I've not found them to be much of a problem on a 4K screen. I had a 65" Hisense TV last year with a couple dead centre and they couldn't be seen at a round 2ft from the screen. The TV I had before the Hisense was a 60" sharp 1080p and that had three dead Pixels and they were basically invisible at around 5 feet. Stuck Pixels are the worst, especially green. Luckily all my LCD based TV's have had reasonable screen uniformity, minimal banding/DSE and manageable clouding so the dead pixels are the lesser of many evils in my opinion.

You're not likely to suffer the majority of these defects with OLED due to the way the pixels are illuminated.

What would this be like for gaming though I wonder

That's the thing people want the latest and greatest , first. In 2 years time there will be a lot of oled sets already in people's homes so it won't be as desirable, there will be another tech advancement which will be expensive until it's mass produced and cheaper again. So on and so forth, for 3 years the base oled sets have been starting around £2500 due to lg being the only manufacture to pump out panels, Samsung are determined to stick with LCD/led for now as it can't be beaten for production costs, Sony are buying from lg until the market swings in favour of oled. I'd say it'll be at least 3-4 years before they come down to the same Ish price as an lcd panel, if they perfect the panel making technology and all the major manufacturers get involved

Would have probably jumped at this price if they hadn't dropped the 3D from this model (and all 2017 models)

C6 is close to this and E6 has 3d

I know it must get said all the time but how much better can sets get.? 4k OLED must be hard to beat? anything above 4k and unless you are right up close is going to be hard to spot any difference, at least going from 576 > 720 > 1080 > 4k is noticeable.

And now that each pixel illuminates itself, how can this be improved? (Or at least improved in a way which makes a noticeable difference to the consumer

Expecting to get shot sown as im sure the same me 10 years ago could have said the same thing,

I agree that the perfect TV doesn't exist. My C6 however, is nice and uniform, no issues with lightbleed, dead pixels etc. I have all the crap processing settings turned off and therefore the latency is pretty good. Maybe I got lucky but this TV is the closest to perfection in my experience.

No dead pixels on my OLED, no light bleed either. My previous led Samsung however had awful light bleed in corners. Latency was not an issue when I tried my xbox one, although I prefer to game on a smaller monitor tbh so I can see all the action in one go! This OLED does look stunning with uhd discs... night scenes are total blackout due to the pixels turning off individually. This tech is totally different to led sets.

possibly worth waiting, the prices are bound to drop as the new OLEDs are out soon

The specs on the new gen looks Mega, Dolby Atmos sound etc.

if you just want the tv one could always sell the soundbar on ebay and get a few quid back i suppose.

My problem with the current OLEDs is their latency, even in game mode it was 70ms and over 100 if you wanted colour accuracy... wtf? My Monitor is DCI-P3 100% and only has 8ms total (combining two figures for the monitor so the TV would be even higher than what I stated) and so why can't TVs do this? My only conclusion is they cheap out on that side like they cheap out on scalers, because most people do not game on them. I would use it as a monitor too and even with 32ms on the Samsung... it was really noticeable.

Then you have the fact OLEDs have burn in, which is fine for normal viewing, but when you're using it as a monitor... not good.

I don't think OLED is the future, there is always something better around the corner and I'll be waiting for that as they have too many flaws like Plasma did. My phone has an amazing LCD display, so I'm hoping eventually we get to the point where either FSA is improved or an alternative comes out.


I don't want any smart features either, just keep it out, all these TVs do s judder and then they have tons of processing to try and eliminate it... again why? My Monitors do not judder.

Why are they all HDMI? That's the worst connection you can use, the audio through it sucks for one, but it's so slow and does all these security checks. I want the return of ports that just work like my monitors, you plug it in and it's instantly on, HDMI is so annoying. especially when using splinters because you only ever have like 4 HDMI ports... no give me 12.

Take the built in speakers out too, no one uses them, they add size and cost and suck.

That's exactly why everything uses HDMI - because of HDCP. The handshakes that cause those of us with very complex setups issues (Sky Q boxes are a pain for handshake failures) are there by design - companies aren't going to stream 4K content without it

Just received mine from John Lewis, first impressions aren't good, starting to think I wasted my money oO

How so?

benjammin316

How so?



Pixilated on supposed 4K etc, playing with the settings and calibration now based on AVForums suggestions but unsure if I'll send it back at this point. Netflix stream via lan and supposedly ultra HD which I appreciate will not be as good as blu ray but how often is one to watch blu ray? It's unrealistic.

Edit; I have 80mb BT fibre so not a bandwidth problem!

The 55B6V is similar spec to the UE55KS7000, and that's almost half the price at £899.99! OLED is so ridiculously expensive that I reckon they will all drop it in a couple of years if they can't get the cost down.
I'm the fun one at parties.

What's the guarantee on this with Argos?
