I was just looking at this yesterday at JL when it was 999, so good spot. Tempting...

I wonder if it's been price matched somewhere.

It's the same price at Richer Sounds which is where we bought ours.

Still hoping to get the ue55KS8000 for £1.1k or less, but this is on my list too if it gets back down to £850.

Note, the 2017 televisions are starting to be released imminently so another drop is possible.

Good tv as long as your watching straight on and in a bright room

I watch my in a room with a lamp with no problems and set my TV up with the settings on the internet.

Yeeeah my TV love it

Some of the recent reviews are not good at all. Great price though considering what you get.

Cracking bit of kit. Wish my current TV would hurry up and die:D

Bought this last week for £950, I've been playing horizon on ps4 pro with HDR and the visuals are absolutely breathtaking. I've been stopping every few minutes just to take it in.
Found it for £850 here... I wish I'd waited..: dcdigitaltv.co.uk/pro…-2/

Those are graded though aren't they?

Is this 10bit?

Tempting. Voted hot.

No

I have the KS9000 and it's a great tv, no problem with viewing angles at all, these prices are good now in view of the new models coming out this year

Says it has support for it on DC website!

It's a 10 bit panel. We got one it's great and fine in bright or dark room. Well worth this price. I paid 950 and was more than happy.

Excellent gaming mode with quick input response

what a stupid comment, it's one of the brightest tvs available. It's hdr1000. The brightness blows the oleds out of the park. Obviously oled has other advantages but brightness is not one of them. Can't say I've had any issues with viewing angles but I spend most of my time in front of it so wouldn't notice. And yes horizon on a pro does look magnificent on it. The remote is pretty cool too, and I don't think the back has fallen off of my tv yet lol, not looked though it's wall mounted.

It's more of a tongue in cheek remark because it always invokes so much discussion and disagreement. Welcome aboard.

I have the 60" and i rang Samsung about the back panel and a repair came out and just replaced the little bit of tape that was on the back with a new stronger tape that goes all the way round. Make sure you turn off auto motion to get best judder free results.

Go to recent reviews on website. A good few 1 star for blurring in 4K/1080i. Far outweighed with good reviews but still puts a doubt in your head.

Does anyone know if the 2017 range of Samsung TVs will have a model that replaces this? I know there is the QLED TVs, but they seem to be going up against the OLED TVs from the competition, and so the price is considerably more. What I'm basically asking is, should I just buy this, or wait a few months. I don't really want to spend over £1500.

Actually that's the one thing OH doesn't like about the tv is the remote X)

I don't know whether it's just him or not but he always seems to knock it on the floor when he puts it down,he blames the shape of it,it doesn't lie flat X)

The European KS7000 is 100% a 10 bit, HDR panel, 1000 nit panel.

I think a lot of the confusion comes from the U.S. KS7000 model which isn't 10 bit.

There to get the equivalent model, you have to buy ou have to get the KS8000.

I'll have half a dozen

You and me both!!

Probably referring to the viewing angles. If the screen is shiny as well wouldn't help.

A brighter room would make the picture darker. Unless the TV is set to adjust brightness automatically to suit the room and dims with light off. Sounds like a user error.

Where did Sniffer77 mention OLED?

As you have mentioned it, whilst the peak brightness is higher on these LCD's erm.... sorry i mean LED, erm i mean LED backlit LCD... erm i mean EDGE lit LED LCD

The brightness range is more or less the same if not higher on the OLED, since although it won't reach the peak brightness of an LCD it goes a lot deeper into the black range

Peak brightness is a non selling point, (someone tell samsung) in fact i have to turn down the brightness on my OLED, its eye piercing otherwise. (if i wanted a burnt retina, i would stare at the sun thanks)

What's more important is the number of dimming zones, OLED has hundreds, and this tv has hardly any at all - and it shows

And a bright room affecting the image is mostly down to the reflective coating on the screen above anything else.

Anyway, had this TV once upon a time, and sent it back. wasn't happy with it, It is not at all comparable to an OLED, so not point mentioning them really

There is no North American KS7000 model as far as I know, I think you're getting it mixed up with the KU7000.

10-bit vs. 8-bit+FRC is a silly distinction because it makes such a tiny difference. There are far bigger differences in HDR hardware like local dimming ability.

Don't expect the new model to be a similar price in a few months though, it's November before the prices have dropped all the way.
