Was £699 with 5 year warranty at RGB Direct earlier this month: hotukdeals.com/dea…110

I didn't bite then as hoping to see another £50 drop on BF.

Not sure about that to be fair.

Don’t think Argos are particularly safe and equally don’t see C&M going anywhere.

My last two TVs came from Crampton & Moore as I’m local. No issues at all.

No one is safe with Amazon around.

I'm in the "buy at sub £650, with extended warranty brigade" too!! Anyone with experience now how these usually go? I mean the fact every retailer is selling at about £730 makes me think surely somebody is going to knock 10% off at some point. Personally I would wait to 1st week of January to get a better deal on this!! Does anyone think by then the product will creep back up in price? Go out of stock everywhere? Only be available on ebay? What's the feeling? Is there anything else to consider at @ £600-£700max for a 55inch screen?
I'm excluding LG81000 series and U7A AND ANY 7XXXX series Samsungs! Although they're all not too bad all things considered!
Please 650

I am hopeful of a 10% voucher.

As you/someone posted in one of the many other threads, all the other sizes dropped except the 55”, so Samsung clearly have a winner/no need to reduce this.

My experience of years gone by is that BF prices are often mirrored by sales in January, and rarely improved/beaten.

There’s 2 sales worth checking in my annual timeline, Prime Day and Black Friday. Though the introduction of Black Friday ‘week/period’ seems to be dampening the actual ‘crazy deals’ on actual Black Friday.

I guess we will see.

Are you seriously comparing C & M with Argos? I hadn’t even heard of them until a few months ago, they are a kite flying in a hurricane.

I’m not comparing them as it’s apples and oranges. Ultimately my point is, no retailer is safe.

But just because you haven’t heard of C&M doesn’t make them risky.

C&M have been trading longer than Argos.

IMO C&M are in a better market position, as they specialise. And do what they do well. Prices are competitive. They’re a smaller scale Richer Sounds.

Argos, are box shifters. Often massively overpriced. They’re the high street version of Amazon.

Think House of Fraser, Debenhams, BHS. ‘Too many products on the shelf’.

No retailer is safe, but I don’t see either of them going anywhere in 5 years. But who knows.

It’s the minnows that are unsafe. Trading time has nothing to do with it. Woolworths and comet were around for around a century. I’d give RS a couple of more years, no way they can compete with profit margins from company’s that don’t pay tax.

I bought a 40" Samsung last BF and ended up cancelling that order as prices continued to drop on the run up to Christmas. In the end I think I saved another £75 on the same set just by continuing to watch the deals and hold my nerve. Best bet I'd say on this one would be to bite at the next sub £700 price drop (assuming BF doesnt bring the £650 everyone's hoping for) and get JL to price match. Then you have another 28 days during which they will continue to match any brick and mortar stores which discount it further.

Problem is you can hold and hold and hol, and before you know it a newer model is out.

I’m buying Friday regardless (just moved house and the wall is bare). Just hoping for a little more off.

This isn't a direct comparison to OLED as its approximately half the price. Only you can decide if its only half the quality and how important that is for your viewing.

My research suggests this is the best vfm TV for 2018 offering good picture quality, good gaming ability at a fair price.

Seems like a sensible approach.
This TV is awesome even for gaming has 120Hz panel and input lag is 15ms!

RS will probably be around longer. They are careful re: the sites they choose for stores and revenue per square foot is amongst the highest in any industry, in fact according to this article the London Bridge shop has held a Guinness record for the highest retail sales per square foot for two decades running!

Where they excel is their customer service, their sales associates know their products inside out and take the time to explain options and indeed allow you to try them out in store before you make a decision on what to buy. The 6y extended warranty they provide is only 10% of the purchase price and the fact that they refund the warranty cost if you haven't used it at the end of the period is a MASSIVE draw compared to say buying from Amazon or God forbid, Currys (care to pay £7 a month for 6 years for an extended 'Team Knowhow' Care Plan for your £600 TV??).
If anything, high street closures such as HOF will drive more customers to niche retailers such as RS. Of course Amazon will retain their loyal base, but for medium to high end audio and video, specially products over the >£1000 threshold for which customers are more technically aware and expect robust service, specialist stores will still fill an important niche.

Just wondering if anyone can help. I’m looking to upgrade my PS4 to a PS4 pro and get a 4K 65” inch tv (or larger).

Any help would be appreciated.
