Price drop 55" Samsung UE55ks9000 curved TV £1199 with free soundbar worth £379! @ John Lewis

Found 26th Apr 2017
Update...J L have now dropped this by another £200 to £1199!

Been heavily researching the best TV I could get and decided to get this bad boy before it goes out of stock (high end 2016 model - 2017 model will set you back £3k). Also comes with a free curved Samsung sound bar worth £379!
Best input lag (for games - Digital foundry found this far superior to OLEDs in tests using HDR) and personally prefer it to OLED after seeing it in action.
Also get the JL Warranty as standard etc.

Cheers me dears

Tempted to bite at this price.

I need a soundbar anyway so if you knock off the £380 value of that it puts the TV at £820 which is around the same price as the super hot UE55KS7000 deals at the beginning of the year.. for a better TV.
Great alternative if you cant find the 7000 anywhere. As someone else stated, in a different way, it's a shame its curved. Good find op!

Bite! If you're not looking at OLED this is a great TV! This years quantum dots aren't a significant improvement IMO to justify the high prices!

Heat! I just ordered the UE65KS8000 and got John Lewis to price match PRC Direct at £1499.99!! Cracking deal considering my mate paid £2200 for the same TV last year :P
soundbar is overpriced by about 100£
Do they have non curved too ?

Do they have non curved too ?



That's the 8000 I believe
Amazing deal. Heated.
Awesome and right on time for the bank holiday and payday
Curved screen is a total deal breaker - and I don't care how cheap it is.
I'd bought the UE65KS9000 at the weekend and JL have refunded the difference - brilliant stuff
Curved is obsolete.hence the price drop.

Treat yourself to the premium product, I bought my curved Samsung 16 months ago and it has proved to be a life enhancing decision, simply superb.
Have this TV it's fantastic, bought it at full price in November.
would of been ok if not bent

Holding out for a great deal on the 65 KS8000. Wonder if the £1499 including blu ray player was as good as it will ever get before disappearing!
Must resist
Incredible deal. Tempted.

What have people got against curved? Just because its not trendy any more?

Not as much as they'd have against a straight edge, that's physics for you, ruins everything.

It was only ever "trendy", it was never good. Only one person can sit directly in front of the screen and for anyone sitting off axis, the geometry of the image is totally bugg-ered up. Curved screens can't be hung on the wall and take up a huge amount of room space. I could go on but it's late.

lol curved is not premium..curved was just a aesthetic gimmick to sell some extra TVs.
it's all over now and curved is already obsolete, so the higher end,"premium" TVS are no longer curved.
sorry to burst your bubble.
A further delay on your inevitable ascent toward OLED...

From the curved ones i've seen there's no distortion at all from watching at an angle.
Had this TV for a while as bought 2nd hand from eBay but they kept sending me models with bad backlight bleed issues.. In the end gave up and bought a KS7000 brand new from Richer Sounds as couldn't find this brand new for anything less than around £600 more than I paid for the KS7000..

Much prefer this TV though, and much prefer the curve to the straight.. Would definitely buy it at this price if I hadn't bought mine..

Anyone interested in a 4 month old KS7000? :P

Yes i noticed that especially for an older model, the K551 is a better soundbar and can be had £199-£219 from retailers.
How bout they keep the soundbar and sell just the TV for £999.99?

There is distortion watching any TV from an angle but your brain is very good at sorting things out..
Put a test card on the screen, take photos of it from various viewing angles and check the level of geometric distortion by putting a straight edge along the straight lines on the photo.
On a flat TV, off axis viewing will result in horizontal lines being straight but not quite parallel but on a curved TV, they will be all over the shop.

Get an Oled you don't have that problem even if it's curved!
curved is too elegant for the non elegant common mortals.
Do not go for a 4k if you do not know how to use it, curved or not.You buy this type of tv for your pleasure only, you sit in the middle not side ways and the most important thing of all at the right distance which makes justice of the curved screen, does not matter of what type of resolution or quality. I still got my very old reliable crt screen when I got guests at home and we do enjoy viewing from any angle. I do not care if they like my curved one as that is only personal to my self and few members of my family that can appreciate good stuff, who does not I always suggest to stay away

Bundle now sold out. Didn't expect them to hang around.
Had been hunting high and low for UE55KS7000 for weeks now, everywhere out of stock. Went into local Richer Sounds showroom who said they had one in stock but when I got there they didn't have it. I was offered the new model instead MU7000 for £1200 (store price £1499) but noticed it was only labelled UHD and not SUHD nor did it have quantum dot. The salesman told me the quantum dot had been dropped from the 2017 MU model and added into the QLED range. So the way I saw it was paying a good bit more for the newer model which theoretically had a poorer screen.

Did see the UE55KS9000 on display but couldn't justify the difference in price between the flat panel and curved tbh. Seems a decent price with free soundbar OP.

Took the plunge and got them to better PRC Direct price of £1329 by £20 for the 65" KS7000. Taking delivery today.

I read a number of reviews / forums about the MU7000 and the initial consensus from the AV-nerds seemed to be that its not as good as the KS7000 (Even though Richer Sounds tried to sell me one lol). I went for the 9000 over the 7000 due to the better processor etc (4k gaming etc.). I was against curved screens initially but after some investigating happily plumped for it (Dont want to hang it on the wall).
