Seems a pretty good deal. Decent brand and has a cool gimmick, sub 400 for a 49inch 4k...heat from me!
Code doesn't work
if I've got this correct annoyingly the 43" is more expensive, 49" too big for us. heat for the deal.

Hope it's better than the Sony android equivalent
Code?
I have the 55" version and love it. The recent update stabilises everything and adds HDR to Netflix. Once you go ambilight you won't go back. Rastafari is the almighty.
Removing heat as code doesn't work

All 4K HRD TV's are not the same, basically there's HDR 'premium' with a set of standards they abide by and non premium that can take a HDR signal but not necessarily display it as a true HDR image, this TV is the latter.

​yeah iv been reading a few bits on here when a TV deal gets posted and no matter how much I read it's a confusing thing This hdr business haha thanks though buddy.
I've got this TV, this is a great deal.
Cheap TV is cheap. Yay for the cheap TV
Hmm i'm quite tempted here...
Bought this when it was £399 18 days ago and used code TV10 to get 10% off (code expired) It's a great TV and works brilliantly with PS Plus/4K Netflix

The 6401 is 100hz compared to the 6501 which is 200hz

The 6401 has 8gb storage compared to the 6501 which has 16gb storage

Quite abit of difference on the specs, watching sport on a 100hz wouldn't produce the best quality smooth picture im guessing
Has anyone got the code to work? It shows the discount until I log into paypal...
This is an amazing TV and I bit the bullet after seeing it on here from Argos a couple of weeks ago! it replaced an 11 year old panny plasma and it exceeded my expectations for a budget set. I experimented with the settings but couldn't improve on the "out of the box" set up. To my eye the picture was equal to that of the double the price sets claiming the latest 10 bit bla bla ultra stuff!! I just watch standard TV in Old fashion HD. get one if you can.
At this price get a quality sound bar with your change as the speakers aren't great. The one posted a couple of weeks ago here for a refurbished Panasonic was perfect. Incidentally the Ambilight feature on the TV is really good.
Heat for the deal great price , how ever be very careful with Argos they have been well known to repack send cusmtomer/faulty returns as new alwayd check packaging on delivery some one posted a pic they had delivered with missing screws i thimk on s tv, oO , i havent had a Tv like this but i had a pressure cooker that was delivered that was used and re packed it even had mouister inside they had usesd an outside box to hide it too

And if you leave them negative feedback they block you from buying again on their ebay store.
The set I had off them wasn't from an eBay site it was from the local store Merry Hill and was new/unopened. So can't comment on their eBay stuff. The Panasonic sound bar off their site did say refurbished and came in repackaged plain box with about a mile of bubble wrap and all accessories and manuals and was unmarked. luck of the draw when buying anything refurbished but what a saving in price!!

There is a lot of misconceptions about like 8-bit vs. 10-bit (doesn't matter for panels) and HDR Premium being 'true' HDR.

If you want to understand the HDR Technologies then I found this link to be pretty good:
http://www.lightillusion.com/uhdtv.html

Basically HDR is a new and expensive thing made up of half a dozen different technologies that every TV implements to a different extent. A current top of the range TV will implement some of them fully and some partially and as you go down the range support gets degraded.

It's not like 4K where a TV either has it or doesn't

The most expensive technologies like backlight dimming are the first to get simplified and then removed. When you come to a £400 TV like this all you've got left is the ability to read HDR content with no hardware difference from a non-HDR TV.

If you want something that looks like an HDR demo then you need to add another grand to your budget. The refurbished DX902 at £1200 is an excellent deal. If that's too much then Samsung's KS7000 is often considered a decent entry level model for HDR at £800.

If you want good HDR you either need to wait a few years or buy a high end TV. Spending £400 if you're buying a new TV because of HDR is a waste of time.
just tried the code and it was not accepted .... but I used the code yesterday on another purchase... perhaps it is a one time only code
Great deal!
Not as cheap as it was on the last Argos TV deal a month ago, it was £359 back then, but right now £386 is the best anywhere.
Here was the last deal

For me 49" is a bit too big for the room, I'm hoping a deal will come up on the 43" model for around £300 ! Then I can sync it with my hue lights

Same here! hoping a deal around £300 mark will come up soon for the 43" model !
Decent TV for the price, can tell the legs were an afterthought. Why not have them in the middle?!

This TV also can't display HDR properly as it only has an 8 bit panel, it's physically impossible for it to do it properly.

That's what people have said to be about the wife, unfortunately after the divorce I won't have enough money to get this TV.
I bought this a few days ago when the RRP was £499 but used the Code to buy online at £449

Are Argos likely to give me a refund now this has dropped within a couple of days?

You're forgetting that many people, especially on here, only care about being able to tell their neighbours that they have a "4k HDR" TV. Whether they can see it isn't so important. Like having a high megapixel camera, kinda pointless when the lens is crap.

You can return the TV to get a refund then buy it again, that's perfectly legal.
