Finally a more sensible price for the 7304. Was a toss up for me between this and the LG sk9500, which superior on paper but the ambilight swing this for me - I love it!

Key features are Dolby vision and Samsung's HDR10+ support, as well as HDR10, HLG covering all the major HDR bases.

3 sided ambilight too. Has android 9 if that's you're cuppa.

Edit - Will expire as Amazon bumped price up from £777 to £885

I agree, peak brightness was the only thing that held me back on purchasing one over the last year.

If they can fix this and up it they would have a chance of closing the gap on the likes of lg, panny, sony, Sammy etc

Definitely brighter than the 7303 looking at the side by side photo which was 350, can't see an exact figure mentioned anywhere but I'd expect around 500.

I take it that it will be a VA panel like the 7303? Looks like some sizes will be IPS. 50 and 58 seem to be VA, hoping the 55 is too.

Edit, also looks like direct lit rather than FALD, 'micro dimming' is what their marketing team uses. Also 8bit + frc.

Basically if you aren't bothered about ambilight and £800 is your max budget, get the LG 55sk9500 with 5yr warranty for £739 from PRC direct - there isn't a better TV out there for under £1k imo. I'm now having second thoughts...

Ah yes the Sony is a £1 under £1000.

The LG is fald, and DV too, although the Sony implementation is a bit better. LG is IPS, so contrast won't be as good but viewing angles will be a lot better.

Plus Webos is far better than android imo. Personally I'd still choose the LG, but I'd go for the Sony over the samsung purely because no one cares about HDR 10+.

Sony will produce better HDR. It has higher peak brightness compared to the LG. Yes the interface is slow... But if you use an external source such as Sky a lot of the issues with Android can be avoided.

If you do need wide viewing angles then the LG is the best... But overall the Sony will give you better picture and better HDR.

WebOS is by far the easiest TV OS to use.

Best led tv 2018


Thats what we talked about above. Sony will give better HDR and if you sit square on and will be mainly using sky or xbox (ie, anything except the woeful android system) its the one to get. If you sit at an angle, eg a largish living room, prefer using TV based smart system and want to save £200 to put towards a sound system (which is decent on the LG - better than the sony) get the LG. In fact if watching sports Id still suggest the 9500 as its BFI is supposed to be bang on.
