Do i get this! Or wait for black friday! Such a hard decision!

DD+ and 10-bit support... Nice! This may well be a good one to grab for a low-mid range TV choice. Heat added

It supports 10 bit but it can't display 10 bit so not really that great

It's 8bit+frc as I have been deliberating over the 49mu6400 at 549 vs the 50mu6120 which is 8bit but £449. Yes the former has other extras such as BT, sat hd tuner and smart remote but still wondering if I will actually notice the difference lol

Samsung website states 10-bit support, but to be fair doesn’t detail by what method lol

The 10-bit range in HDR10 data corresponds to brightness values to 10,000cd/m² and the full extent of the Rec. 2020 colour space.

I guess someone in a laboratory somewhere may have such a display, but the film and television industries don't, and there certainly aren't any TVs that get remotely close.

The MU6100 et al. does support dithering. As far as I'm aware all TVs with HDR support do.

The MU6400 adds a wide colour gamut which should be noticeable in HDR content (it's not used outside that). Whether it's enough to be worth the extra when you won't be comparing them side by side I'm not sure. It's definitely too early to get excited about HDR at this price point though.

I believe the 49" MU6400 in the UK is using an IPS panel this year instead of Samsung's usual VA panel as the MU6100 et al. use which will likely be the biggest difference (lower contrast, better viewing angles).

HDR10 is mastered to 1000 nits..... plenty of TV;s that can achieve this.

it's Dolby Vision which is 10,000 'theoretical' nits.

Regardless, HDR isn't just about how bright a screen can get...

if I wanted a 55" Samsung tv with 10 bit HDR display, how do I know which model number to look out for? is there a way of interpreting the model numbers
thanks
Edited by: "matty2767" 5th Nov

Got the 65 inch from John Lewis a few months ago during the Samsung cashback promotion, in fact only paid few quid more than this price!

Tv is brilliant, no faults at all. 4K Sky Q is awesome. Only issue would be sound but I have Sonos systems, so no probs.

My understanding is tentative but as far as I'm aware mastering to a lower brightness in HDR10 just means leaving the higher brightnesses unused, there's no provision for scaling the PQ curve. So content mastered in 1000 nits only uses 75% of the 10-bit range with the brightest spot being shade 769 instead of shade 1024.

I believe the limitation on mastering is a lack of available displays to check that the content looks ok rather than anything in the standards. The 4000 figure that HDR10 and Dolby Vision content is mastered to is that of the most capable monitor.

I fully agree that it's not all about brightness, I'm just explaining what the 10-bit depth in HDR is actually used for and while it can't be equated with just a 10-bit LCD panel.

If you equipped this TV with a 10,000cd/m² backlight it would look terrible. Without a local dimming system it would only be able to display 10,000cd/m² on screen if the blacks were at 2-10cd/m²! In reality the software would just dim the brightest spots down to 500cd/m² or less so the rest of the screen could stay at the correct brightness.

That depends on what you mean by a '10-bit HDR display',

Basically the more you spend the higher the dynamic range the TV can display. The Q8 and Q9 aren't much of an improvement over the Q7 so that's probably the one to go for. Maybe the 55"-only Q6 if this is the size you want, but I haven't seen any reviews on that yet.

This or a Sony XE 7073? I did like the picture quality on that, at 699 too it's a hard choice!

Is the code valid for buying in store as well?

Buying a 4k TV is a minefield and I consider myself a tech geek! So much terminology/specs to get your head around, not helped by BS marketing by manufacturers and retailers. I'm considering the Samsung MU7000/7070 which is 10bit panel but barely capable of just over half the touted 1000 nits brightness for a proper HDR experience.

I think you need to demo with what you'll be using it for and make a decision using your eyes, rather than get bogged down by specs that, whilst making a visual difference, are being used to flog us more expensive sets. If you're happy with the performance to price ratio buy it. They have all saturated the market with so many blooming models across the range, you can always have an extra feature for a little more...

It was simpler when most manufacturers had a low end, midrange and high end model. Now you seem to have lower, middle and upper tiers of each price point and then some. It's madness, they're putting people off buying TVs!

I was originally planning to buy the 55MU6040 but having gone to look at it in Currys I've decided to go for the 55MU7000 or 7070 as I thought the picture was much better. Just waiting for black Friday in the hope there's a decent deal on one.

It's a good option. The review I read seemed to conclude that it's the best image quality you're getting below £1k at 55" and you need to spend a good bit more really. If you're a gamer it also has one of the lowest input lag figures, important to me.

The rest is just my personal interpretation of the market I have been studying for a while but feel ready to jump into now there's good reason to. I briefly bought a high-end Panasonic over a year ago that was damaged i transit by Yodel, which I returned and didn't replace as it was the last one at a sub £1k price.

Just wondering if you saw the Sony xe9005 coop deal yesterday and considered it for a little bit more? They're out of stock now but wondering if they come back in to go for that.

Does anyone know if you can buy a Samsung connect invisible cable to go with this or the m7000

I know they sell it separately at £200 but it's not clear if it only works with qled or frame tv

I didn't see the deal but that was the only Sony that interested me. I opted for the UE55MU7070 with UHD player for £949 in the end. Loving it! I'll just avoid Black Friday TV deals now in case I regret jumping in this week...

Nice! Given its a 7070 i assume its the Currys deal you went for? Its now jumped to £1049. I'm really tempted. John Lewis and Richer Sounds both have it for £949 with UHD player. I dont need the UHD player so would probably sell it as i have the Xbox One x. If i can get £100 that takes the TV down to £849 including at least 5yr warranty..i wouldnt think black friday will be cheaper than that? Im talking myself into it now.....
