Sorry I probably should have said 'an effective price of £674' as £200 of it is in vouchers.

Nice 🎈
Will they let you combine the voucher discounts along with the price match refund of the difference?

Not sure what you're asking, but the price you'll pay is £999. Then when you decide to keep the TV they will issue a refund to bring the price down to £874

The rest of the "discount" is just £200 in John Lewis vouchers, which you won't be able to use on this purchase and will be sent to you some time in December.
Ah, I see. So 'effective price' not becuase of vouchers you use on this TV but instead money off future purchases 🏾

Correct.

It shouldn't really be phrased that way in the title as it's misleading, but if you're likely to buy something else at John Lewis then it's still a good deal.
It’s not £674 with vouchers though is it as you can’t use them against this purchase.
Can you use those vouchers in waitrose?
Shall i change the title then?

For clarity, I would. Should be "Samsung telly plus £200 in John Lewis vouchers, for £874"

It's a deal I'm taking advantage of myself, so I do think it's a good deal, but it's not £674

I’m just concerned that the discounts won’t stack, I wouldn’t want to miss out on the £125 and end up with the £75
Looking at the T&C it doesn’t specifically say that it can’t be used in conjunction with any other offer..... now just need to decide between this and the Sony XF9005!!!!

The stacking shouldn't be a problem. £125 is from John Lewis and £75 from a 3rd party, so shouldn't be a conflict.
This is quite tempting! I am personally looking to buy a new QLED tv, however, just read the Which? review and will copy it here the highlight of it:

Which? verdict: The worst QLED we've ever tested
The 55-inch QE55Q70R has the dubious honour of being the worst QLED we've ever tested.

Just in case you want to do a bit more research

I would usually go Sony, but I got one of the heavily discounted Samsung’s in Jan this year and although it bugged me how fake the picture looked with the blown colours, I now find that Sony’s look dull in comparison....but I do feel that the Sony is the better set overall (git both on price match, just need to decide

Which may explain why everyone’s dropped the price? Rtings.com and plenty of others say how good it is, user reviews are positive..... so annoying!! I suppose there will be a “worst” Ferrari out there, but I’d bet it’s still great, they’re saying it’s the worst QLED not the worst LCD so does that mean it’s stillgood?????

My main concern is the viewing angle on these, and apparently this is quite bad at this after reading the tests of it.
My current samsung tv viewing angle is kinda crap, so dont wont to get the same issue. Hence I thought it might be interesting to share this. Love Samsung tvs tho.
I did not know about that Which review, that does throw a spanner in the works. As @frakison says, almost every other reviewer has it as a 4/5 or 8/10.

I still havent pushed the buttton on this, not sure whether to spend the extra on the LG OLED B9 or just wait until Black Friday to see what else is out there.

It depends on what you're looking for. Out of the box the Sony is set to look very vivid by default. It has different picture setting options that you can adjust and you can customise the settings for each source individually. If you want realistic picture settings it's recommended that you change to Cinema Pro mode and set your colour to Expert 1. The image will look brown to you for a while because your eyes are comparing it to what you've already seen but your eyes will adjust over time. This gives you a pretty close match to the true colours without a professional calibration. Something to bear in mind also is that not all Sony televisions are the same and not all Samsung televisions are the same, there are better models and worse models for each. Each manufacturer has specialties and tendencies but model should be compared to model rather than manufacturer name to manufacturer name.

Samsung A may be awful.
Samsung B may be excellent.
Sony A may be top notch.
Sony B may be abysmal.

Have you used the Sony for console gaming? I'm not an avid gamer, but I play games, the input lag is supposed to be noticeable/bad, have you experienced it?

I have. I haven't. It's also only really supposed to even be a slight issue on games that don't run at 4K, which a lot of the more recent stuff does. I can't see it being an issue outside of hypercompetitive games where nanoseconds matter and, frankly, if you're into that kind of scene you're better off using a PC and high refresh monitor.

Such a bizarre comment. "Only an issue for games that don't run 4K"

So anything running on a base Xbox One or base PS4 or Nintendo Switch? Owned by millions of people.

Great.

And people who play online games that rely on quick response times should be on a PC and monitor? Try to break that news gently to the millions of people playing those games on console.

The last two games I'd played were 4K games and so naturally that's how my brain formulated the information. I realised when scanning back over that it'd probably be better phrased as not applying to 4K games rather than only applying to non-4K games but it was a distinction without difference so I didn't bother changing it. The information is the same.

It's true, though. I say that as a console peasant.
I was torn between this TV and a similar priced Sony xf90. But when I went to the store and had a look at the screens, even though the Sony was a 2018 model, the "normal" TV picture was better. This Samsung messes up the upscaling quite badly. If you are in store, ask them to put BBC or itv channels on both, and you can decide then. I went to both Curry's and John Lewis, and exactly the same result. It's difficult to explain the upscaling effect on the Samsung, it's similar to the game borderlands. Some people like it, some don't. I didn't like it. I really wanted to buy the Samsung, but after seeing that, I decided to go for the Sony.

Thanks, I only have the standard Xbox so no 4K gaming for me at the moment. I just worry that either way I’ll end up regretting my purchase. The Samsung worries me as there are lots of reports of its issues, the Sony worries me with the sluggish OS (I saw a review on YouTube where he pressed the Home button and counted to ten before the menu popped up, that would drive me nuts, why can’t there just be one TV!!!!!!

Have you even read the entire review? ... made me pay to actually see it for myself.
I think their overview title is rubbish. They even quote the wrong model: "The Q67R is a good-looking TV...." They gave it an above average score. I don't see a problem for this price.
