I'd still go for a good 1080p rather than a poor 4K. @ 55" and a 7' viewing distance, you wouldn't tell the difference

So according to that chart..... with a 10 foot viewing distance in my home, and room only really for a 43" I should only need to go for a 720p TV?

No thanks

Anyone unable to perceive the difference should book an eye test.

Good price this, parents recently bought the 668 for £649!

Almost bought the 49" version of this on very with their 10% off. Read some reviews which says backlighting is poor in a dark room few videos on YouTube showing, not sure if this has been fixed since with an update although people were saying if you turn backlight off this fixed it. Ended up paying an extra £100 for the sake of a 50" Samsung 10 bit panel instead.

Which Samsung model did you get?

I bought the 49" model for £900 last year when it was initially released. The local dimming/backlight issues makes me regret that decision.

Meanwhile in the real world, manufacturers have stopped producing £700 Full HD TVs so that's no longer an option.

I own the 49', paid £609 at John Lewis with 5 years warranty, and so far it's a solid experience. I am not really noticing the dimming/backlight issues (depends on the movie tbh) and while the 1080p content looks a little soft, the 4K is great (this is a true 10bit panel that also has Dolby Vision). PS4 and XBox HDR works a treat after TV software update.

HDR makes the biggest difference, something that only 1 or 2 1080p sets in existence are capable of, but most £600+ TVs do a decent job of. Just so happens they come with 4k screens.

I want to punch people when I see this graph. Do some research and stop spreading misinformation. It assumes you only have average 20/20 vision (you can see from 20 foot what the average person can see from 20 foot).

Like someone else said, if you can't see the difference, go get your eyes tested.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B06X3WNZ9B/ref=pd_sbs_504_3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=9T80JK48XARTE9ZXF265Sure about that?



Yes.

That WE6 is a 2017 model so it's got the usual 50% new model price premium. The version contemporary with this UH770 is the WD6 which is a £400-420 TV:

Even with the downsides of 4K a £700 TV is still going to be better in a lot of areas than a £400 one. Or £1500 and £700 if you prefer 2017 model pricing (SJ80 vs. WE6).

As far as I know the only £700+ Full HD TV left with decent availability is LG's EG910 OLED which is around £1k. Most of the others seem to be out of stock at popular sizes.

Bottom line 4k demos on youtube look stunning on this tv even at 2ft away. I can vouch for that having the LG 950V.

Sitting 2' away from a 55" TV is rather unusual though, most people sit at least three or four times further away.

Plus what are you comparing it to? The graph is assuming everything else is the same, so if you're comparing it to normal youtube content then much of the improvement you're seeing is nothing to do with the resolution.

We just bought this and it updated right away when it was on.
Sky q hd channels look great and ive yet to notice this grey / light bleed issue. Havent watched in a completely dark room yet so maybe thats when it may be noticeable. Good tv if you have hd to feed it.

Think they emailed me a 10% off code as I'm a co-op member if anyone wants to try stacking it

Which Samsung model did you get?



Sorry just seen this, it's not here yet but the Samsung 50" MU6100....turns out it's not a 10 bit it was the same price but no reviews as it's a 2017 model. Unsure kinda wanted this one. Read some other bits and if you turn local dimming off the LG seems fine apparently and the remote is cool.

Thanks.

Think I'm going with the Hisense M7000 or the LG one. I wanted to get one with HDR.

Almost all of them have HDR these days, I'm tempted to get the LG and cancel the Samsung as it's 8 bit panel. The LG is 8 bit too but uses Frame rate control to offer 10 bit experience, also supports dolby digital vision which is another type of hdr10....bit like the Blu Ray/ HD DVD battle, some brands supporting HDR10 some supporting DDV, LG supports both.
