These TV's are coming down in price. Looking forward to getting one some day soon.

Pixel Resolution 3840 x 2160

Perhaps I've missed something but wasn't 4k referring to having 4000 pixels wide? Surely if it's not 7680 x 4320 it isn't a 4k tv?

4k sounds more catchy than 3.8k

waiting for the 55 inch one to drop

I was actually observing it's 2k given you measure off the width (second number)

Waiting for the LG 49UB850V to drop. Richer sounds have already agreed to do it for £1400 and are holding that price for me till Weds but hopefully cheaper elsewhere!

Width would be the larger number not the smaller and is usually quoted first on screens...

It's a great tv.Never buy any other make.Samsung seems the only one that you can remove the black bars on films without losing any of the picture from top,bottom or sides.That alone is enough for me,but there sets are top notch and attractive too.

woohoo 4k starting to drop

Any thorough reviews of the 40 inch one? Is the upscaling from normal HD sources (e.g. Freeview HD) any good?

Not a true 4K TV, 4K is a minimum of 4096 x 2160.
Edited by: "GoatzRus" 31st May 2014

Surely you'd need a 50" plus screen for the difference between 4k and 1080p to be significantly noticeable?

I stand corrected, but I still personally feel this isn't true 4K resolution. 4K=4000, 3840 isn't 4000 therefore not true 4K in my opinion.

4x the pixel density is definitely noticeable, even on a smartphone it would be. 4k is amazing.

Is there anything you can actually watch in 4K?

Some Netflix shows.

So 4K is 2160p

The black bars are perfectly normal if your souce material's aspect ratio (the ratio between the width and height) is not the same as your TV's. For widescreen TV's that ratio is normally 16:9. A lot of movies are filmed anamophically at 2.4:1, which is wider. If you're watching one of those wider aspect films, you should see the black bars at the top and bottom - it means that the picture is being shown unstretched.

Pretty much any widescreen TV will have zoom controls which will chop off part of the picture to remove some or all of the black bars, but unless you want to stretch the picture, you'll almost always be losing some of the material. (You may also be cutting off subtitles.)

As for Samsung being a decent brand, well that's down to personal preference. I've always preferred Panasonic's plasma sets.

I'm not voting either way on the deal. It's a decent price for a 4K set, but 40" is way too small for this to be a good investment imo. I doubt you'd be able to discern a difference at a normal viewing distance, even if you could find some 4K content to play on it.

With regards the 'is this 4K?' debate, it's a bit confusing, but this article helps:

en.wikipedia.org/wik…ion

Both UltraHD (for TVs) and DCI 4K (for cinemas) are classed as 4K, even when the exact number of pixels differs.

As there is very little native content do these 4k tv's upscale sd and HD content at all and with what success? Am toying with taking the plunge on w905 or holding out for 6 months and getting a 4k. Will be getting a next gen console soon too to play. On it if that helps someone answering. Thanks folks

The review on HDTVtest for the 55" version of this suggests the picture isn't all that great when things are in motion. Lack of 24p support for movies is pretty shocking too.

Yep! Well said, so that I can put the savings towards the 8k one when they are released. Feeling a bit bummed out spending a small fortune when I adopted an Plasma 10 years ago.

Thanks for this, I need to get richer sounds to beat this deal. Can you tell me the steps to finding this price because when you search on their website it comes up at £1429:

We all know the tech reasons 2.40 and 2.35 etc,but few people like black bars.The point is that most tv's except Samsung just zoom in cutting bits of picture off.Most of us that don't like black bars also don't like having bit of our movies chopped off the sides.Black bars are of course perfectly normal and perfectly annoying,however apart from buying a Samsung the only other option I know of is a 21.9 tv.

Is this TV any good, as I can't find any reviews for it?

So a Samsung can perform miracles not cutting or distorting the picture at all ! Amazing!

It cuts none of the picture off the top,bottom or sides.The amount of film viewable remains intact completely.Is that a miracle?Not sure,after all you can get DVD/Bluray rippers/encoders that turn 2.40 ratio to 1.78.All the Samsung does is keep the picture intact and looking completely normal while filling the whole screen.Unlike my Sony 905 which just zooms the picture chopping it seemingly in all directions.

So it stretches the picture vertically, Doesn't sound normal to me!

yeah ...buy a tv that has no footage to play it on ...........sky ...........nope ...........wait theres blu ray ...............nope............

Well if you like black bars that's cool.Just make sure when you watch Star Trek NGen on Sky you change your tv setting to 4.3,you wouldn't want the picture stretched.

I paid £1749 for my W905 in preperation for the PS4 launch last November and couldn't be happier with it. It has negligible input lag, much better than the usually poor performing Samsungs (time it takes for the TV to display the image from the console). You should get 4 pairs of 3D active glasses too which is a nice addition.

Suppose Samsung wasn't actually mentioned in conjunction with PS4,it's more it's much superior online,apps and ability unlike my Sony 905 to remove black bars.Horses for courses isn't it,that's why I have both makes.

Looks grate for watching the World Cup on
