Can the 10 bit panel / RGBW / UHD Spanish Inquisition please happen in this thread. I have become so used to it in every tv thread that I now rely on it.

I will experience huge buyers remorse if I were to purchase this and then read the thread in a day or two to find out that I aught to experience vast amounts of shame any time I let someone into my living room.

I guess HDR would be the main difference

Took the plunge and ordered. Reviews all seem good. Here's hoping I'm not disappointed

Good price for a seemingly good TV (have not seen it in a store). I personally will go for its big brother, the 6400, for £50 more from JL.

Active crystal colour is Samsungs confusing method of telling consumers it has a wide colour gamut for HDR.

At 40" they should both be using VA type panels so apart from having better colour with HDR, will perform very similar.

Make sure you sit very close with UHD content to a UHD TV of 40". About 70cm is optimum and at 140cm you start not to notice a difference between FHD and UHD.

So do I need to sit 70 cms from the tv? Sorry I don’t really understand

What he is saying isn't actually that you need to sit within 70 cms of the TV - although that is the literal interpretation.

He is being sarcastic. What it means is that if you sit further away than 70 cms from a 40 inch tv then your human eyes are not capable of noticing a difference between full hd and ultra hd. That's not a slight on human beings. As a species our eyes are very capable.

If confused then you can run a quick demonstration - just take a piece of paper and draw two thick lines on it about 1mm apart. Then stick the paper on the wall and walk backwards looking at it. At some point you will no longer be able to see that it is two lines and it will look like 1 thick line. The point that this happens is analogous to his HD/UHD comment.

You might remember Steve Jobs talking about iPhone and iPad displays and why there was no point in any more pixels than offered by 'retina' display. His argument was the exact same - at the distance you hold your phone from your face you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Hence the name retina. Because the retina is a bit of your eye and, as I said above, you're a human being.

If you like this sort of chat then here is an article full of it. No, I'm not the author.

Not getting into an Apple vs Android thing! But I always thought when the first "marketing" around the Retina display came out, thinking "yeah that makes sense", but then how do you sell afterwards when you then bring out a "Super Retina Display", which has blah,blah,blah better/more (you forgetting the part you said before the first one was the best our eyes could see anyhow) Not getting into the techincal side of it, just thought it makes a mockery out of what actually made sense the first time around.

Voted hot BTW, adding into my mix of choices now, just spotted the deal from email after work and came to read everyones thoughts on it.

Off to look at one of these tomorrow morning. Specs said no freeview guide though as I have sky that’s not a problem for me.

Voted hot.

User Manual HERE page 54 (from Samsungs Website) and the next few all show how to work the guide/epg/recording from etc. Much like yourself though rather like to see it for real.

This or the Hisense 43N5700? Same price, similar spec. So regardless of the brand name which would more experienced AV enthusiasts go with?

Primarily for use with Netflix, iPlayer etc. and a bit of Xbox One.

Although it is worth adding that in the real world some content sources are making their 4K sources higher quality in other ways too, so getting a TV that can receive 4K videos can result in a visible improvement to picture quality.

Xbox one x all green ticks with this Tv?
