4.2% tcb as well

Wow

This is amazing - over £500 off!!

Specs mention 3D converting, but this TV isn't 3D?

Has this tv not been discussed before as not being proper 4k?

Amazing TV. Saw one in Currys showing 4k content and I was blown away by the detail. Currys had this for £2699.
At this price, it's a Steal!

eaxlns

Currys don't sell this model.....



My bad, the one i saw had curved screen.

Still a great price

eaxlns

Currys don't sell this model.....

Currys DO sell this model, it's in store now at £1599

They sell the 50 inch for £1599. Do you have a link to the 55?

Just a note it's European model and No Freeview HD

Still nothing being made in 4 and the frame rates are shocking , hang fire is the advice

i like currys, they allow me to physically view my goods . . . . . . . . then i buy them elsewhere!

same here lol

after tcb its coming out to just £945!

was going to say bargain . . . . . but . . . .

i havent seen any reviews of this product be it good, bad or other - not on cnet, or trusted reviews or youtube clips or anything

almost £1000 for a tv, coming from holland, without a review let alone a detailled review. no local stores stock it not john lewis or currys.

im sorry as good as it it this is an impulse purchase with a bit of a risk!

It has the HEVC codec so will be able to stream 4K via the Netflix app. But yeah, that's about it...

....And Currys will go the way of blockbuster!

If this is new and is also a UK model then this is going to get mighty hot in here...

dayum hot.

currys is a boring store, they have been around for ages yet they haven't developed any customer loyalties or taken advantage of economies of scale.

a newcomer comes along like appliances online and is eating into there customer base

survival of the fittest

ibood hardly ever sell uk models.

Added to that this does not have DVB-T2 and only Digital television (DVB): DVB-T/C/S2 indicates it's not a UK model.

But still an amazing price.

No camera in spec at this price ?

No Freeview 7 day episode guide on this either as it's a euro import.

May well be the exact same as the HU7500 but without 3D.

Recently purchases asus ft700t. Estimated delivery date 30/04. Still didn't receive it. But great price for this tv

Dam, Dam dam..... Why did buy a tv. In January, Oh well just have to wait for 8k

Well this sets a new level of pricing for a branded 4K bearing in mind that Samsung's equivalent 1080p panel is actually quite a bit more expensive than this:

appliancesdirect.co.uk/p/u…AaA

draw backs are that it is coming from mainland Europe so it might not be too easy to return it in the event of it being faulty (I believe you are covered for 30 days from ibood) plus of course it doesn't have a Freeview HD tuner - a quality PVR would soon put that right though or Sky/Virgin.

Voted hot and I am actually tempted to sell my 55" VT50 plasma for this one ...

True, I'd still rather be able to buy from a shop given the choice though, but the way it's going now, online retailers are shutting down all of the high street competition (especially electricals)

I'd still rather be able to view the TV in person than just buying online. Also being able to take an electrical back to the shop is most certainly usually better and in some ways I'd rather shop on the high street, companies from america come over here like amazon and don't even pay any taxes, making people lose their damn jobs.

But I'm not disagreeing with you, currys are pretty dated and need something to get back in the game.

4k TV under £1k from a big name brand, didn't see that one coming this early.

I'm still going to wait a year or two for content.

apologies, got confused with all the 55s surrounding this basic model.

I think this price point may be telling on how the industry thinks the take up on UltraHD is going.

Wish it was 3D

Cold, 2d is a gimmick.

Dabs has UK model below £1300 dabs.com/pro…c=2

Looks liek a lot of TV for the money, but it's a grey import, bit of a gamble tbh
should you need to claim on the warranty it might gert intersting.
I'd check with samsung first before purchasing tbh

Yep, it appears a bargain price at first, but unless they're selling a UK model or you only use Sky I think the lack of a Freeview EPG would be pretty annoying using it on a day to day basis. I would rather pay the extra money to Dabs and have a UK model and UK warranty. I have bought from iBood once and had no problems but it was nothing of this value!
Edited by: "pabosotf123" 13th May 2014

Am I right in saying that if you already have Sky HD it would be worth getting over the UK model as it's around £300 cheaper? Other than the lack of Freeview HD all the other features are the same right?

Huge gamble I'd say, unless a grand is just loose change. After 6 months, you're expected to pay to return the TV, and that's the best part of £150+ with UPS. Granted there's probably cheaper alternatives, but not sure I'd be skimping on transport if they decide to reject it because it's been damaged in transit. So essentially it's a 6-month warranty, then 18-months "discounted repairs" oO Just looking at their FAQ page now and it mentions the products sold are A-Grade, so basically all Manufacturer's Refurbished products? :\

Experience has taught me for things like TVs, is just to buy it from somewhere you can physically visit at minimal expense. Then again I wouldn't even contemplate handing over £1000 to a website that looks like it was made in an hour and tells you almost nothing about the company you're dealing with. A lot of potential hassle just to save a few hundred quid which is reflected in the inferior spec/condition anyway.
