I am looking for a 65” and really wanted the Sony xe9005 but it’s at least £300 more at the moment. My next choice is the samy and got it price matched at JL

I have the 55" version of this and its a great tv.
The only small problem with it is when watching Sky tv (not the new Q box) if i rewind or pause sky and fast forward, once I press play there is no sound ?
I then have to rewind for a second and press the large Sky button to get the sound back ?
Samsung reckon its the sky box but it didn't do it with the old LG tv and i use the rf out to watch tv up stairs and when the sound goes its still ok up stairs.
Also the next tv i buy will be oled which are coming down in price every day.
I know it will be a long time before i can get a 65" oled for this price tho

Yeah OLED would be great at £1000 which is where I am drawing a line for a new TV. This is as close as it gets for me and I think it ll keep me happy for the next 5yrs. And there is a free footy T-shirt with it
How did you get it price matched? When I enter the store name, it says it's online only, so won't match it. Also it doesn't look like there's any warranty?
Would also like to know how to price match this. Also just to note this only includes 1 year warranty
You can get it at Richer Sounds for £1,125 with 6 years warranty with a price match request from Hills Radio. Smashing TV.

I did nothing more than fill in the form claim price match. The warranty was only 1 year but still got the email confirmation with a case number...
I'm sure the TV will be great but just a heads up I got the ks7000 (the year previous to this ones model) and the screen went the other day after having it 16 months. It's from John Lewis so they are sorting it but there's no way I'd be happy with a 1 year warranty.

That being said the engineer they sent out said it's not something he sees often. Lovely TV the ks though so I'm sure the mu is good although I have seen a few things saying it's not quite as good as the ks. Forget the reason but Google it.
bestnewestlatest.com/sam…17/ here the article. Favours the ks. Sure its excellent though and I'm tempted to go for it if John Lewis refund me rather than fix it.
I actually have both the 55KS7000 (Main TV) and 55MU7000 (mainly for PS4 PRO) and they are fantastic TVs. I was all set this year to get the 55xe9005 but side by side the MU7000 looked brighter with more pop and was 400e dearer so went with samsung again! You cant go wrong with MU7000 55" and above.

Do you want to share the details, if I can get JL to price match I will be ordering.

38" apparently so perfect for me, sent the price match request and let's see.

Richer sounds have a price beat policy, so they would shave off £20 on purchases over £1,000. Hills Radio are an authorised distributor and offer 5 yrs warranty so they qualify for the price beat. That's what I did.

To get them to price match you need to convince them they are a retail store with shops rather than just online. I did this by spelling the name of the company wrong on the form but adding a link to their 'visit our showroom' page. JL then get an actual person to look at the form rather than a robot and they generally approve it

Thank you! Looks like it'll just about fit :-)

I've been trying to work out the best 65" TV around 1k and this seems to be the one!

I simply wouldn't touch a large tv these days without a 5 year warranty (or 6 from RS).

agreed. My 49KS7000 screen started to bleed a little after a couple of months last year, and Samsung refused to change the panel (because the bleeding was within the 1% tolerance according to them!!). I got Currys to give me a full refund. I swore not to buy another Samsung, ended up buying the Sony 49ex9005 from JL, but when the TV turned up my wife wasn't impressed with the quality of the screen (she thought it was not bright enough and the Android interface was rubbish, and she had a point), so the TV went straight back to JL. In the end I bought the Samsung 49MU7000 (only because my wife loves the style and interface), and guess what, the screen died on me within 2 months!!!! JL got it replace within a week, but still, to come back to the original comment, I would certainly NOT buy an TV without a 5/6 year warranty.
I just can't wait to move out and have enough space for a 55inch, OLED is what I really want and can't be found in 49inch.
This or the Samsung qled 6f?? Or go big and get the oled b7??? Just worried about the brightness on the oled

Definitely the OLED. QLED is just a marketing gimmick.
I went with this model but the next size up
excellent tv
the blacks and brightness is spot on
sky q and 4K movies look outstanding
low input lag so gaming is also excellent
would definitely recommend especially at this price
heat
I have got the price matched by JL.

Now I am confused between this or Sony 65XE9005. Sony is about 450 dearer. Is Sony worth that difference?

That sound thing also happens on my Sammy 27 INCH curved desktop monitor & happens to Amazon prime video.. So no it is not your doodads.

Different faults but similar issues for me on a number of TVs over the years. JL have been fantastic every single time, and that's all I need to keep going back there
Price is still £1099 at RGB Direct with 5 yr warranty, got JL to price match mine yesterday.still not too late to ask for a price match.

Looks like o just got in there. Popped in-store to have a look at the TV action and it looks glorious. Too bad they couldn't do the price match there and then but I've ordered it online as instructed by the price match confirmation email. You have to claim the cash back after delivery.

I second this, they fixed my last TV as quickly as humanly possible with no fuss at all. They come out to you, no sending a giant TV through the post to some warehouse in the vague hope they'll agree to fix it.
I should add richer sounds also have a good rep on that regard but in sticking with JL.
Finally pulled the trigger on this but the 55inch. Was gonna spend 1400 on the LG oled but I just couldn't justify that much money when I have a kid the Risk of damage and the Risk of burn in etc. Half the price and decent TV..
What’s the viewing angles like on this? I’m really tempted 😬
was sitting on the fence till now but after seeing all the prices go up at most retailers , have now gone for it with John Lewis after they price matched.
SO this model better than the Samsung qled 6f?? It's not alpt more

I went and looked at this in store, to be honest I didn't notice much difference to the picture at any angle but then it was showing super saturdated images in a brightly lit showroom.
My parents have the smaller model and its certainly no issue for them.
