Found 4th Jan
I recently purchased myself for £900 and am impressed with the upgrade from my 7 year old Bravia - A 'budget' 10bit 4k TV for those who can't justify the additional £'s for OLED.

Also get 10 UHD movies - see get deal link for details

If £850 for a TV is "budget", I need a new job...
🤔 I get someone buying you but why buy yourself for £900

All This Talk about perfect blacks and 10bit hdr etc is most amusing. …All This Talk about perfect blacks and 10bit hdr etc is most amusing. People talk like humans can actually see all of these things. Humans are totally incapable of seeing a 4k image on a TV unless they are a couple of feet from the screen. Sitting any further back and 4k will look identical to 1080p. Yes it's still a great picture but humans simply don't have the capability to see 4k resolution unless up close. In addition all the HDR stuff and 10bit. We simply can't see a lot of it. The public are being conned. It doesn't matter what tech you use. Humans have limitations that absolutely can't be overcome. Corporations face massive problems in the future. They will will rely on complete ignorance, indifference and keeping up with the joneses to sell their sets in the future. Those things alone will ensure their profits are safe and secure. Yes I almost fell for the long con when I almost needlessly bought a new TV. It was only PC world incompetence that stopped me. Take a look at stores that have rows of expensive TV lined up. There's little difference between any of them regardless of price. Why? Because we can't see much of the content due to our limitations. Listen to all the snobs on here trying outdo each other on best TV sets. All these people have more of us more debt. Their TV won't be much better than this one. They have to believe that their TV is better. Humans have the infinite capacity to believe what they want regardless of reality


"I dont know what I'm looking at, therefore nobody else can see any of this stuff, either".

I'd be nicer about this, but when you're acting condescending and accusing people of being 'conned', my sympathy is going to be lessened somewhat.

First off, *of course* you can tell 4k from more than a few feet back. *Especially* when we're talking 55" screens and up. Maybe you're not sensitive to resolution detail, but I can absolutely promise you many of us are and the difference is quite noticeable. I'll give you that diminishing returns do set in the farther back you get and it doesn't take long before you're going to be incapable of distinguishing 4k and 1080p, but within 8 feet or so with a 50-55"+? It's definitely noticeable.

10-bit and HDR. "Simply cant see a lot of it". I'm guessing you dont even know what these things are in reality. HDR content displayed on a proper 10-bit, 1000 nit+(or OLED) VA display is stunning. Absolutely stunning. We're all accustomed to what 'good contrast' and 'deep blacks' look like, but HDR doesn't neglect the other side - brights. The combination of both deep blacks and super bright brights makes for a more realistic image than we've ever seen from a display before. It does require the content to be mastered to take advantage of this, though. As for the 10-bit part, this is something that enables color reproduction to a very high level. Again, maybe you cant tell the difference, but it is noticeable to others(like myself). SDR vs HDR in terms of color reproduction is akin to the difference between a TN and an IPS display. Plus 10-bit helps minimize banding greatly, which is something 6 and 8-bit displays will always struggle with somewhat. Enabling a far more cohesive image as a whole with no distracting artifacts.

So, all you've really done here is express your ignorance of the subject. Really, there's nothing wrong with 'not being able to the tell the difference'. Are you happy with your existing display and dont find these TV's to be a big upgrade? Great! Save your money and be content with you have already. Just DO NOT go around trying to spread misinformation and act like everybody else is some sheep and you're one of the enlightened ones, cuz you're not. Quite the opposite. I'm not saying there isn't ever an element of people just wanting the latest and greatest and not fully understanding what these numbers and features mean, that does exist for some people, but there also plenty of us enthusiasts who truly do know what we're looking at and take this stuff seriously for a reason, not because we're being 'conned'. This goes for many 'tech enthusiast' subjects like musical instruments and headphones/speakers, too. It's normal many people wont notice the difference between 'ok' and 'great' stuff, but lots of us can. It requires a certain level of experience(and knowledge) to become sensitive to the differences. Hell, even something like whiskey isn't any different.

Honestly, unless you're super old already, I can pretty much guarantee you will have a 4k HDR display at some point in your life. And you will look back on your 1080p SDR display and wonder what you were ever thinking saying there's no difference, much like happened with the transition to 720p from 480p. Trust me, I worked at Circuit City during those times and you wouldn't believe the amount of people that sound exactly like you trying to say that they couldn't see the difference between 480p and 'HD'(720p) and were super skeptical, just assuming we were trying to treat them like suckers when talking about the advantages. This is the same thing all over again.

wow - that's a massive reduction on this set - is it any good? how does it compare to XE90?
Edited by: "spongebob1913" 4th Jan
Can't see warranty details anywhere on the product page.

Other similar price TV's on their site showing 5 years warranty, this doesn't, so guessing it's only 1 year.

Strange.

No way I'd be buying this from Hughes without the long term warranty. Maybe worth a price match elsewhere.

It's edge lit with no local dimming, so it's going to be very poor for HDR content by comparison.
At £849 this is tempting. Although I want an OLED I have massive concerns over burn-in.


Edit:

I need to compare the Q range as there is the Q6/7/8/9

Highest rating I can find is for a Samsung Q8 (7.6) opposed to (8.0) for the Sony X900 SERIES

It's possible a Samsung Q6 might score less than both

It was only £1200 when it launched back in October so it's only the sort of price drop you'd expect from Samsung.

It's hard to tell how good it is as there aren't any reviews. The next model up is generally considered slightly worse than the XE90, so I wouldn't expect this to be comparable. I suspect it's may be a re-spin of last year's KS7000.

It's a recently released (October 2017) special edition stripped down Quantum Dot entry level TV only in 55":

You would have thought it would have been reviewed by now that said, unless people can't be arsed to review it.

Can you add something cheap and then use the £75 off £900 spend?
i bought mu7000 few weeks ago and im very happy with it, this looks slightly more expensive at 1800 price original but i dont think it was every this price and was probably a little over 1k. the fact is says q-lite... makes me think it is the most basic and half version of real qled and isnt a massive upgrade of my mu7000 if at all so im not bummed i didnt wait... good deal but without researching i couldnt say if it was crazy good or not...
I wish I purchased the 55MU7000 at £699 about a week ago. The Q6F is essentially the same panel from what I hear.

ive just been readying and samsung uses a PQI like an easy way to tell how good the picture is instead of all the other complicated data and apparently my mu700 is like 2000-2500 and this q model is 2300 so it is very similar could be the same so no loss at all, the mu7000 is probably within 10% in terms of specs and no difference could realistically be seen unless ur science checking with gadgets etc both will be great mid -high end 4k tvs not as good as 2k price tag obviously but WAAYYYY better than 300-400 cheap sets;

The Richer Sounds specs page says it has no local dimming.

richersounds.com/sam…tml

Not a definitive source, but there's so little information about this TV to be found anywhere.
ye even tho its qled rather than normal its not great as its like the lowest worst version of the range, and apparently has no local dimming and not great blacks, this is basically identical to the mu7000 slightly worse in some ways and slightly better in other " slightly brighter so.. its a toss up" the original q series had q7-8 and 9 q6 was a later budget cheap add on for those wanting top end, but didnt want to pay top end price.. so obviously not getting top end quality so doesnt make much sense haha... anyway decent deal but massive reduction only prove the point that its not the best otherwise it would hold value.

The UE55MU7000 is a much better buy and probably the best 55" TV you can buy in terms of value for money for the spec.

Was £699 recently and will be again at some point no doubt.

Tiptop price for this size & spec, going to be interesting what happens to all these late 2106 announced, 2017 sold Qled sets when Samsung announce all their new ones at CES this month
I’m steering clear of Samsung - they stop supporting their TVs after 12 months and fail to live up to promises of adding features such as HLG Broadcasting and HDR10+, now saying they have no plans to.

Speaking from experience of my 2016 set which I hugely regret buying and should have stuck with my original plan of an LG or Panasonic (who still support their 2015 sets).

HDR10+ will definitely happen for those UHD sets like the ks7000, probably delayed due to how poor Samsungs 2018 sets sold and to make them more attractive (not surprising due to their massive price increase)

Agreed with HLG broadcasting, but by the time it's useful other devices will have it so you won't need to use the inbuilt app.

Its disappointing, but you can't deny the value of those sets last year.
What does "QLED-lite" mean?

Got myself a 65" QE65Q7F which has regular QLED in the John Lewis clearance for about £1100, but it's currently being sold new for much more than this one.
Is this better than the ks7000? Was all set on buying the ks7000 before it went out of stock everywhere!!
I'd hazard a guess that these will drop further after CES next week where they often announce new models
Q-LED is a failure compared to OLED...i would not spent a single penny on Q-LED...hence why the price has dropped

Panasonic do not support their 2015 sets.I have the CX802 and they are refusing to update with HLG or HDR10+ and they also have released one update since i have owned it - to add HDR..
