No soundbar now though Great price though! Not sure if I should wait a bit and spend a little more on the Q70, Q80 or Q85! Decisions decisions...
The Q85 sounds excellent with all the extras it is much more expensive though nearly double the price of the RU8000
Good price and voted hot. Been watching prices of this one for a while. Shame no 5 yr warranty though, if it had that I think I'd finally pull the trigger.
What are people’s thoughts on this? This is the exact price I’m after for a new 55” TV - but had a look at Which? and it’s a bit down on the picture - it even recommends cheaper LGs like the LG 55UM7660PLA ahead of it - anyone know about it?

I've got the LG and it's a really nice TV. I did a lot of research beforehand and posted on AV forums and the concensus seemed to be that this Samsung and the Hisense U8 were better options due to better blacks and 120hz refresh rate compared to 60hz on the LG. As the other post said the LG has better viewing angles as it's an IPS rather then VA panel.

In the end I went for the LG as the Samsung and Hisense were both £600+ and I wasn't willing to wait for them to drop in price. You can now get the LG for £479 with a 5 year warranty and I would expect to see it for £449 if you're willing to wait. Overall though I think all 3 are good options and the best 55" TVs at this price point.

I've got the model down from this (RU7400) and had read the same things, also that the black levels were really poor. Load of nonsense in my opinion. No issues at all with viewing angles, picture looks sharp and not washed out in the slightest, and the blacks are really dark. Only issue I have is the motion settings are terrible and create a really bad (and juddery) soap opera effect. If you turn these settings off though, there are no issues.

I bought the Samsung Q7 and my brother and his son went LG, 6 months later my nephew sold the LG and bought this Samsung because the LG aren't good for fast movement and you get burn in on screen, My brother still has his LG but has very faint lines from burn in and said he'd never buy another.
I think the black are perfect on the Samsung and just a few % behind the LG but you'd only notice if you had both side by side, as for viewing angles never been a problem.

Totally agree.
The best 2 TVs in my opinion for under or aprox £600 are the Hisense 55ub8 or the Samsung nu8000..if you can find one in stock somewhere. Both have 120htz panels, are great for gaming & have good black levels & hdr for movies. M&s are doing the Hisense for £599, but with only 2 years warranty.

Bought this 3 weeks ago with the sound bar. Cracking TV if you are not sitting at a ridiculous angle viewing is great, smart features are brilliant compared to my old Samsung ue40h6400. I did loads of research and there are arguments for lg, hisense and Sony, but opted for this for the combination of price, great features and spec.
She price at Reliant Direct still. Any chance of a pricematch using either of these retailers down the John Lewis or RS route?

They won't price match due to length of warranty. Already tried it.

All the TVs priced between £400 & £600 are about the same. The only benefit of the ru8000 is the 120 htz panel. This will make it a good gaming TV, if that's what you want. If you want good black levels & HDR, with good local dimming, you need to jump a level to the Samsung q70 or Sony 9005. If you're fussy about those things, wait until one of the above TVs is available at a better price.
I wish I could price match this with JL or RS! How is the warranty with BT and how long is it usually?
