Yes it is in store only

Would i be able to get John Lewis to price match this? Only a few days ago i bought the same package from them for £949

I’m looking fir this exact TV at the moment and saw this in my local store yesterday. This price is instore only and the price includes a 1 year guarantee - the £949 online price comes with a 5 year guarantee. I queried it and if you want the extended guarantee then it’s £949. Either price comes with a 10 year screen burn warranty so decent deal imo.

I read that last year model is better? Apparently this had screen issues where it was not hitting high nits?

From reviews i've looked at viewing angles is a major issue with this TV.

Last years (pre QLED) model is better, but price has gone up as close to zero stock left in the UK. hotukdeals.com/dea…812

May go for the 6400 which is hovering around £650 and use as a stop gap till HDR reduces in price.

Alternatively looking at whathifi.com/lg/…iew @ £1500. Significant increase in price but also significant increase in quality.

Comes down to how quickly '10 bit HDR' is going to depreciate.

There wasn't a last year's model, the U series stopped at KU6670. Compared with the KS7000 in the next series up this is worse as you'd expect. It's also cheaper. This time last year the 55" KS7000 + Blu-ray player ran to around £1,100 IIRC.

Co-op have this TV for 825 if anyone is interested... only today though and only the tv not blu-ray player

Purchased the TV from my local John Lewis store, they had a customer return (had been delivered by their delivery team, unpacked and put straight back in the box as it was too big for the room). Mint condition - as new. £749 with 5 year guarantee

I'm going to try.. now sure how it would work as they don't have the blu-ray player on their site so couldn't include this on any deal

Let me know how it goes!

Picked up one of these, so thanks for the post! The TVs i had narrowed it down to was an LG SJ950 (cheapest option), MU7000 (mid option) or Sony X900 (only if it dropped from 1300 to sub-1000).

Very happy with this TV. Vieweing angles were a point of contention in reviews, but the angles i watch it makes it a non-issue. And when looking from the side (read: making a brew in my kitchen) there is only a slight difference. It's also a little more responsive than the TV i was previously using and i feel like i can tell when playing games. Might even be tempted into an X1X for some additional 4k content!

I went to see the 6400 in currys as that was what I was originally planning to buy but ended up changing my mind and have gone for the 7000 as I thought the picture was much better. This was of course in showroom conditions but I felt a lot happier spending a bit of extra money and going for the 7000 over 6400.

I have got it since fee days. Perfect tv for the price. I got the 4k 8500 player as well. It's for sale if someone wants to buy it (still sealed in the box)

Cracking tv for the money guys, I too had read some viewing angle issues but it’s minimal at most! The picture is stunning for the money, Xbox works great on it too....I am now very tempted to purchase the 4K Xbox! Anyone tempted by this tv - I’d suggest you go for it, you won’t be disappointed!

My mu7000 arrived yesterday from John Lewis - wow! What a great picture on both 4k Blu-ray's and Xbox one games. The integration with you view box is really good as well. Moved on a lot in the last few years. Good buy.
