good price basically £40 more than the lowest the 6120 has been and you get a satellite tuner and smart remote for the extra mony.

typically this has been £350 at its low over the last few months
So basically what you’re saying is that you can buy this tv from John Lewis for £20 more with a 5 year warranty? Surely that’s a no brainer to pay the extra £20? Or do Ao.com give you the 5 year warranty too?

lol. Follow the instructions I have typed up. This is a price match and you order on the phone not via the website.
Really good price! Managed to bag this TV for £314 from Crampton and Moore when the eBay discount code was flying around last week! Awaiting delivery today!
Can someone help me understand what the HDR is like on this set please, i want a 40" (or 43") for Xbox One X (might watch the odd movie or TV, but mainly X1X) but have read previously that this doesn't have "proper" HDR and hence i wouldn't get the full benefit. Can anyone explain?

If that is the case, how much would I have to spend to get "proper" HDR on a set this size, and would it be worth the extra spend?

Thanks
Surely an extra £30 from JL is worth it for the 5 year warranty.

It doesn't have proper HDR as the peak brightness isn't high enough to properly show off and see what HDR is capable of. You'll notice a slight difference but nothing major.

You'd have to spend at least double this amount to get into the realm of HDR but then again you'll also not be getting a 40" screen, it'll be a larger set.

I personally don't think it is worth the extra money and if you're after a smallish TV for the bedroom this looks like the best 40" Samsung make.

Ours came this morning - same deal
I got this 40" TV a few weeks ago from JL. Good TV with nice colours but has some uniformity issues due to it being edge-lit, specifically shadowing on the bottom, right and left sides of the panel. I've had two with the exact same problem, can't be bothered to return it again for another one which will likely also have the same problem. Mind you, some people might not notice the issue, it's only visible under certain circumstances.

Put me off buying a edge-lit TV again to be honest though.
Why is there no mention of using Richer Sounds to price match? They provide 6 year warranty and beat the price. Why are people obsessed with JL??
I'm a regular on here but havent been on over xmas. I asked JL to pricematch RGBdirect at £349 and they agreed on new years eve. Just ordered it today, I like the fact they include a 5yr guarantee.

Good point about richersounds to be fair, I forgot they price matched too.

This very issue has put me off this TV.

I've seen some pretty bad examples of this. You won't see it in store normally because they are so bright but majority of this model suffer backlight bleed.

You pick your poison at this price point though. Other than the above, this is a solid tv.

Oh the issue I've got isn't backlight bleed actually, it's the opposite really. The panel doesn't seem to be straight, so the edge-lighting isn't hitting the entirety of it evenly, which causes shadowy bars at the right/left side, and some shadowing at the bottom of the panel too.

Laughably my local Currys has the UE40MU6470, which seems to be mostly similar outside of a different dimming technique(seems software based, so I imagine it's the same panel). Their demo model had a video playing which didn't fit the entirety of the screen, consequently it meant it was displaying black where you'd see these issues, thus you wouldn't see them. Can't be a coincidence...

But yes, the 49" models and above do indeed suffer from terrible back-light bleed as they've an IPS panel instead of VA, also due to it being edge-lit.

It very much does seem like you pick your poison with TVs this cheap. I tried a LG 43UJ635V before, and that suffered from bad temporary image retention which rendered it useless for what I wanted to use it for (gaming). A UI element only needed to be up for a few minutes before it was retained - fortunately it would go quickly, but still it was enough for me to say no, and to try something else.

Unfortunately at this size range 40"-43", you don't really have much choice. LG have mentioned that they're planning on making a 40-49" OLED, I sure hope that's true.

It was kind of a bit back but flatpanelshd.com/new…763 mentioned them for 2020. Long way away but, one can hope they might come quicker!


CES is this month so we might hear something from that. Wouldn't get your hopes up for this year though.

Thanks, appreciate the comment. I don't really want anything bigger this as it'll be on a desk and I'll be pretty close to it, when i look at a bigger screen for the lounge or family room then I'll pay more attention. In the meantime, i'll probably pick one of these up.

Thanks again

It does.

I'd like to know how many channels you can record at once. It looks like it's just got a single tuner so I'd imagine it's just watch/record one at a time.

On their website they state that the deal must carry a comparable guarantee... Do they use this to avoid price matching, as no competing deals offer a 6 year guarantee?

Id personally avoid AO
They just refused to do anything for an item that's a weeks beyond its 12m warrantly for me
They've washed hands of a faulty soundbar.
They said if I could prove it was a manufacturing fault they'd refund me 30%
ive now got a £200 Sony sound bar thats 53 weeks old and the remote sensor doesn't work so its next to useless.
Its been fastened to a wall for 12m so no chance its been damaged by me.

In comparison I contacted Currys after 3.5 years about a faulty oven with a 12m warranty and they refunded me £85 (costs me £120) as not fit for purpose
