Not as good as the John Lewis posting. That came with 5 years warranty and a soundbar for an extra £49.99.
No she just wants me to spend time with her :) (y)
Does she watch Love Island, Towie etc? She doesn't have a leg to stand on if so.
My wife says I'm too old to be playing games and I'm only 32 :)
Im 54 lol
I am seriously considering this set and viewed it in John Lewis and Richer Sounds today. I have to say, following a demo by some very helpful staff, I found the SD picture quality to be disappointing. My current set (9 year old 37 Inch Sony) appears to be far superior. I then compared it with the Samsung Q70 and the SD on the Q70 did appear to be a little better but still not brilliant. The HD and the demos they ran on both sets are impressive. At John Lewis they suggested their ‘shared aerial feed’ may be responsible.
The "lag" was definitely there at the start but seems to reduce the more it gets used. I love the operating system. SD telly is still pants on it, I don't care what anyone says. HD & 4K pic more than makes up for it. Unbelievable at times
Barely use it to be honest as everything I run almost everything through a virgin V6 box. Seems fine to me though
Now £739 with HiFi Confidential
That's exactly what I did earlier this week, quick phone call and they sorted it straight away, and it turned up the following morning, very happy so far!
A pity it has such a horrific stand. Makes it a no go for me.
I notice the Samsung QE55Q70R is down to £799 at John Lewis. Slightly better according to Rtings https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/samsung/q70-q70r-qled
Does anyone have any experience with Richer Sounds price matching? They claim to match any price, then beat it by up to £100...
I thought Sony do not give a 5 year guarantee but will sell you one. John Lewis and Richer Sounds provide their own extended warranty which is not from Sony. Might be worth a google.
Whats the difference between XG9005BU and XF9005BU. I have been looking at the KD55XF9005 on very at £799 but a little put off that which only give it 65% and say whilst it's 4k image is good programmes watched in SD and HD don't fare too well. Private reviews say the Android system is problematic and slow. Also viewing off centre isnt as good which am not sure if they are being picky as my current TV has a VA panel and viewing off centre is fine for me.
That's probably just to do with having to use multiple remotes, the guy at Richer Sounds said the same thing to me. Not a problem anyway, my LG OLED turns on my Sony soundbar and has control over the volume (through the TV remote).
It's fine with LG tvs
It will work but different manufacturers implement it differently
Does this soundbar pair well with an LG OLED TV? I assumed it would but was advised by a richer sound employee that these should be paired with a Samsung TV
Anyone with any experience with oled will tell you they suffer from screen burn the same as oled phones suffer from screen burn the older.oled tv suffer worse than the new ones theres actually a program your supposed to run to help with it I wouldnt toutch a OLED without a 5 year gurauntee oled is differnt technology to plasma which they eventually perfected
OLEd is basically analogous to arrays of CRTs miniaturized to replace pixels....Screen burn wasn't a big problem with CRTs so why should out be with an OLED?
When is b9 coming out?
Why? If it isn't permanent it doesn't matter does it?
Flaw implies something that's a deviation from the norm or an inherent error. It's not really a flaw, really given burn ins more common than not in screen technology it's more that things where it doesn't happen it is a feature.
Voted hot for the price, you can choose in between this one and the Philips deal for £10. AKAI and Philips used to be top brands, can't believe where they are now. Anyway, safe to buy considering the price, if in doubts, try my deal:) https://www.digitalsave.co.uk/huawei-swan-bluetooth-speaker-am08-white.html
What happened to Akai - they were at the pinnacle of music production making samplers in the 90s when sampling in EDM was taking off, was the IP bought out by sports direct or something? :/
I mean you cant go wrong for £10 but it's probably the same volume as an iPhone 8/X speaker, its lasted me 4 years of occasional use (once a month at most)
Is it worth buying?
I bought this from home bargains 4 years ago for £6.99! No way RRP is £49.90
Ahh ok. Yeah, pretty bad
Wow, yeah those reviews are not flattering!
Could be the merchant, voting is not always based on price. https://www.trustpilot.com/review/www.powerdirect.co.uk
Most people are sheep, if the first one votes cold it just builds momentum. This is a better TV and cheaper.
Struggling to see why this is cold. Cheaper than the 65" C8 on here at the moment.
I posted an awesome deal on the newer model with bigger screen & the new Dolby Vision upgrade! (y) hotukdeals.com/deals/panasonic-tx58gx800b-new-2019-model-58-inch-4k-ultra-hd-hdr-smart-led-tv-freeview-play-3230706
(skeptical) what you want receipts (confused)
JL will price match Powerdirect
Repost it mate ;)
This tv has always been at the £1000 mark, £1299 was for the oled or the 65"? This is a fantastic set. Heat mate (y)
For me, the Sony, Samsung and Panasonic have better pictures than the LG or Hisense models. I saw this TV up against a Samsung Q6 and a Sony FX 80 both in 55inch. The quality of the standard definition, high definition and 4k was outstanding on the Panasonic. I had a budget of £750 and the extra £50 seemed well worth it, this exact TV was selling for £1299 at the end of Feb.
Just starting to scope out new TVs, forgive my ignorance but what is extra for the £370 over this? https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/lg-55uk6400plf-led-hdr-4k-ultra-hd-smart-tv-55-with-freeview-playfreesat-hd-5-year-guarantee-john-lewis-partners-429-3217915
Rather get it from JL for £499 and get the five year guarantee. https://www.johnlewis.com/samsung-ue55nu7400-hdr-4k-ultra-hd-smart-tv-55-inch-with-tvplus-freesat-hd-dynamic-crystal-colour-360-design-ultra-hd-certified-black/p3547440?s_afcid=af_47868&tmad=c&awc=1203_1554411183_ebf5a9491663cb402b943e5998d76994&tmcampid=48
Only £472.80 at Amazon ..which is a sealed box?
Be warned: the photo shows the 43" version. The 55" version has a base that is virtually as wide as the TV and takes up more room than you'd think. Check the dimensions before ordering.
Crampton and Moore are the worst company I've ever dealt with. I wouldn't buy from them if this was a fiver. They argue and quibble more than Curry's, and are very rude if you have a fault. Run a mile from them would be my advice
If it costs £20 more I wouldn't call the blu-ray player free :), but that sounds like a better value deal alright.
I can’t help but think they should change their name to something a little more..... professional? Sounds like a market stall (lol)
Which Magazine didn’t recommend “... let down by the fridge being slow at its basic task of chilling food to safe temperatures. We tested this model several years ago and, while it’s still available, we’ve uncovered plenty of better Samsung fridge freezers since then that you should consider ahead of this one.“
Spacemax technology (lol)
Hey I watched the gadget show this week. They looked at three oled TVs and looked at motion amongst other things. Turns out many take all motion smoothing effects off to get the best pic. Tom cruise has even gone on video asking people to turn motion smoothing on their TVs to Off. Maybe this would help you?
Ok thank you. That is really disappointing news.
Not a fan!! I still prefer our old LG 42" that was sold to buy this. When images are moving is like the TV just can't keep up and still suffers from stuttering/ blur. Slow moving images, like someone talking is amazing and clear. But movement is shite. Really unhappy and £739 poorer. ...ohh and motion settings just create random white ghosting all over the screen.
So what do you think of the bigger higher hz 55nu8000?
JL stopped selling the bundle a few weeks ago so that doesnt surprise me...I wouldnt worry about the "free gift", most important thing is that you happy with the TV.....its a great tv and fully recommend!;)
What a thicko!
A good price for this model with the built in sound bar. Great picture, good HD upscaling. Heat
As far as I know All OLED screens which ever manufacture are sourced from LG for every brand
Maybe should put OLED in the title
OLED TV screens are all sourced from LG
Because Oled and Qled sound better and cooler than FALD led (popcorn)
Qled is still LED. Don’t fall for marketing. I have an Oled and whilst amazing for movies id be weary about the technology.
Got this as a replacement for my twice broken down Sony 55xd9305 and it better very happy with it
Because for that price I'd be going for Oled/Qled
That's a new discount, shame they only open 10-5 Monday to Saturday, or I'd be there today XD
TPS are selling it for £825 if you collect in store (Manchester area) and you also get a free wall bracket and a 7 year warranty (standard Sony one is 5 years)
I'm considering it, can't go larger due to space and I'll have to swap out the 'legs' for a stand whatever. I take it you avoid light bleed issues with it having FALD? Also, does the minor blooming I've read about only occur on HDR content? Ta.
How much better is a QLED set over this?
I was looking at 55's then measured my stand and alas I can only go as big as a 49 ;(
I insulted this TV because it has a IPS panel, which are renowned for poor blacks compared to OLED and VA LCD. The point I was making is the better the blacks the less peak brightness you need. One 9f the most important parts of picture quality it contrast ratio, which IPS is bad for.
Ok resort to insults. You quite clearly posted the peak brightness of the oled. Which are fantastic sets, but they ain't known for their brightness, yet you insult other tv's and people you disagree with. Go away now
For a TV to be classed as HDR premium then it needs to fulfil the following criteria OPTION 1: More than 1,000 nits peak brightness and less than 0.05nits black level OPTION 2: More than 540 nits brightness and less than 0.0005 nits black level Option 1 would be the criteria for LED Tv's as they cant hit the Black levels of a OLED. Option 2 is for OLEDs as it hits the necessary black levels so doesn't need the higher peak brightness. That's the UHD alliance, who's opinion I value more then a no nothing mo##n on here
It has a low peak brightness end of, doesn't matter how black the black is. If brightness matters as you say, you wouldn't buy oled either.
Yes I do but because of Oled's true blacks, their peak brightness doesn't need to be as high.
Looks like it's gone back up to 2299. That makes me feel SLIGHTLY better about the price I paid for it... Ha ha
I have this model. It's brilliant! (I find no problems with the brightness levels) I just wish I'd got it at this price! I paid 2449! I went off LG when my 1 year old 4k LED started to go wonky. Fingers crossed the Sony stands the test of time!
12.5% off the full price is not bad at all. Can your friend buy two tv's???
Thats what I'm hoping. Friend can get 12.5% off at john lewis, if the TV drops to £1099 then I'll bite. I need to now I've just bought an X ;)
LG B8 for £1k is good price. If not around xmas time, definitely January sale!!!
