JL won't price match cos they haven't had any in stock for weeks and are unlikely to get more.

Got this TV from richer sounds 2 weeks ago as a replacement for a hisense 65nu8700 which went wrong after 3 weeks. It's a drop in size but a huge improvement too the hisense. Got richer sounds to price match at £829 so this is a really good price. Just wondering if I could get them to price match this after 2 weeks? Would highly recommend this TV at this price.

Normally price match stays for 28 days. Try it may worth.
I see that the MU7000 is £699, is it worth the extra £49 for the MU8000 tv?, is there much difference between the MU8000 and the MU7000?
Edited by: "Uncle_Bob" 2nd Jun
Certainly worth the premium from what I've dug up online, performance is sightly better.
And you can find the MU7000 much cheaper than £699, have a look at the very deal posted on hotukdeals or even other deals, mu7000 should be around the £600 mark.

There's almost no difference between them. The "major" selling point of the MU8000 over the MU7000 is a better anti-reflective coating on the screen. Other than that, they're essentially the same TV. Here's a comparison of the two (using the 1000-higher US model numbers):

just as a sidenote the mu7000 will not play movies without judder from a 24p 60i or 60p source like blu ray player or from apps or cable and satellite boxes.the mu8000 will play any source 24p 60i 60p and apps judder free though.also the mu 7000 has slightly less hdr performance.

Make sure your tv stand is wide enough. I would also get the 7000 but the legs are too far apart for my stand.

That isn't true though. The 55" MU7000 has a 120Hz panel just like the MU8000, so will display 24fps content without introducing any judder. The 49" models of both only have 60Hz panels and so won't.

It's also worth noting that the MU7000 has a secondary position for its feet that makes them narrower.

Thank you for the update, it is good to know that it has the secondary position for the feet and that it has a 120hz panel.
Pukka TV if I'm honest. Bought the 49" last year for around 1400 from richer sounds

I've got the 75" MU7000 and it plays everything judder free.
Main difference between mu7000 and mu8000 in terms of tech is local dimming. MU8000 has 96 'zones' of dimming, so not great compared to high end models, but the mu7000 is lit with leds along the bottom and possibly top compared with zoned leds on the 8000

For me the 8000 is better due to the central stand as opposed to the feet at each end
From what I remember when I looked at these, the 7000 has 20 watt and the 8000 has 40 watt speakers. I got the mu8000 because it does have higher specs and im over the moon with it and I paid £200 more than this.
I have the 49inch and the interface is really smooth on the mu8000, 55 inch is true 10bit but blacks are darker on the 49inch, however do get annoying banding on some backgrounds

The trouble is, nobody has ever gave any dimensions for the feet and how big/small a space it fits on at its minimum. Its as if Samsung has realised this in its later models giving it a much better stand.
anyone managed to get richersounds to price match??

Both the MU7000 and MU8000 are edge-lit, with a single row of LEDs on the bottom of the screen. The MU8000 does not have full-array local dimming, and has the exact same number of vertical column-based dimming zones as the MU7000. None of Samsung's 2017 lineup had FALD, including the flagship Q9F QLED. They were all edge-lit. They reintroduced FALD this year for the Q9FN. The Q8FN is also FALD in the US, though we get an edge-lit version in the UK, sadly.

I went for the 55 mu7000 very deal for £560 (after offer code applied), It will be a big step up from my cheap 1080p tv so I'll leave it a few more years for all the HDR tech to settle down before going for a high end premium 4k tv :-)

from very.com, they give you 20% back and its 12 months buy now pay later - think the mu7000 has sold out now though.

The main thing about the MU8000 is the superior anti glare. However it still won't do HDR well - the lack of local dimming means there's no accuracy to specular highlights.

I was between the XE8596 and MU8000 - ultimately I decided to go for the XE85 because:

-> Superior anti glare - though lower brightness, better daytime contrast.
-> 120 Hz gaming @ 1080P

I got it for £729, which is a decent price

where did you buy the sony 8596 for 729 ,cheapest i,ve seen is about 758,which is my fallback tv but i want the sony 900e,but still steep at a grand,despite how good it is IMHO

Just an FYI on the 55" MU7000, i contacted Richer Sounds about matching the Very deal @ circa 550, although they couldnt match because very's warranty is pitiful, i did get it for £639 with the 6 year guarantee which matches the previous lowest price

The 8000 wasnt worth it for me, only difference is anti glare and different stand from what ive seen (55" models anyway) i had a strict price i wanted to keep below (£650) and any more than that i decided id rather just get the Sony 900E
I wish they had this in 40" size. I would buy it but 55" is way too big.

local dimming, higher brightness, better viewing angles. those are pretty "major" points

Just bought the 49" MU7000 the other day. Didn't realise that it was only 60hz and 8bit. 😯My flat can't fit a TV larger than 50" though. Is it even a decent 4k set for the price?? Really don't have the budget to go any more expensive...

Samsung were a bit sneaky on this one, the smaller versions get poorer panels.
Within the size & budget constraints you can either go for Phillips - hotukdeals.com/dea…731
or occasionally the odd Panasonic EX750B pops up on their ebay store for £500. hotukdeals.com/dea…449


Both of them have 10 bit and 120hz.
