This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

For those of you that have access to Employee Discount Schemes or Student Discount, this TV is an absolute steal - RRP is £899.00 in many stores but with the discount here at Samsung, the price is £764.15.
Student Discount can be obtained through UNiDAYS.
Many of the TVs were out of stock but last night I received a stock alert on this - I bit the bullet and went ahead.
12 months standard warranty which isn’t the best but the TV does qualify for Samsung’s 10 year screen burn warranty (register within 90 days).
Apparently the 2020 version of the TV is exactly the same but is substantially more in terms of price!

Hope this helps someone!

Much rather buy the q85 with the one connect box. It's a lifesaver for cable management.

Our previous QLED had this but we are wall mounting above a fireplace so for us, it’s difficult to place the one connect behind the TV to the mount as it’s too thick....

Do they not have it on the Samsung website?

I was waiting for this model until I came across the horrendous reviews when it's put into game mode which is primarily what I wanted it for 😞

Yeah, but better than the one with feet at each end - which are a nightmare as you have to get exactly the right size TV stand underneath.

Not when you use the corporate discount.

Whoa, I didn't know that!
Great price! Only £100 more than I paid for the q60 and def worth that.
Note the q80 in the UK is not the same as the USA. The q85 in the UKis the same as the q80 in USA. Take note of this if reading reviews as it can be misleading.
Q90r is a way better all round TV. Just need it to hit that £1000 mark

It comes with a 5 metre One Connect cable and you can buy 20 metre cables.

What we wanted to do was mount the tv but because the fireplace is flush to the wall, we couldn’t put the one connect box anywhere. There are mounts for sale where you can put it behind the tv, there’s a slot for it. But the one connect box was too big - it didn’t fit.

Just got the Q90R, bearing in minds it's not being replaced in the 2020 range then I would get it before stock runs out.

I own one and it's great. If you're referring to the inverse ghosting issue I've never seen it and 99% of people wont so to say its shocking isn't really fair

I have the Q90R and there is no blooming. It has 100's of dimming zones compared to the Q80R which only has 50 so the Q80 has lots more blooming.

Only in the game Mode was this noticeable, the local Dimming is different on game mods than when using TV settings.

Most people said it was a lottery as to whether you would get this or not.

Well yes it is way better than an OLED:

That was fixed on a firmware update early last year. Zero blooming in gaming mode on a Q90R.

Clearly had the same image on the screen for hours on end.
I've got a Q60 coming Monday. It's all I can afford but does come with a 5 year warranty. It's been a long time since I've bought a tv.

People on Reddit reporting severe blooming during game mode as recently as Feb 2020. You've obviously been one of the lucky ones but the risk has put me off it

Then they just need to update from the RTM firmware.

I know that. You can put it where you like...
As much as I like this deal and have voted hot....I can also use my employee portal to get 8% off Curry's online. This model is currently £899 minus 8% equals £827.08.....yes it's more expensive but I'd rather pay an extra £62.93 for 4 years extra warranty
What is the warranty like for companies such as Domestic and General? They have quoted me £3.60 per month - that includes accidental damage....
