I didn't even know Game sold televisions! Will this compliment the Ps4 Pro's capabilities?

Yes... it has good response times for gaming and obviously supports 2160p.
The major downside with this screen (particularly for HDR content) is the lack of local dimming zones. Though you usually get that feature on higher end models.

Seems decent for the price though.
Do Game let you use your Game Wallet for marketplace sellers?

Edit: to answer my own question: yes.
Might be time to trade a few things in @ Game

I own this set, paid £490 almost 6 months ago. I love it but it's not without faults.

- Motion judder makes the set unwatchable at default settings. You'll have to adjust this to your own preference. It's never absolutely perfect but I rarely ever notice it now.
- Viewing angles aren't great. Depends on your room set up if this will affect you but you really want to be sat directly at the TV, if you have extra chairs or whatever at an angle to the TV they're gonna struggle to see anything.

Those are my only gripes, i'd recommend it at this price. Picture quality is fantastic. I don't think you can get better without paying double the price.
Got one of these and an xbox one s. Xbox does not recognise this as a hdr tele. But lovely screen though

That's because it's 8bit
If only the flat equivalent from currys would come down in price. Still above the 49" price!!
I'd have considered it if it wasn't curved..price is right and the picture quality is decent, but curved screen is a big no no for me.

it may be down to your settings on xbox, had a bit of issue with mine yesterday after xbox update.
You have to select auto detect for resolution and then select allow hdr and allow 4k, rather than select 4k resolution
Although my tv is a Philips, it was coming up errors when I was testing the tv, until I changed to auto detect
I'll give that a go. Thank you

Technically they don't, the company that's selling the TV is Hughes but is paying Game to sell their tv's through their site to gain more sales.
This was the one I wanted! Great price and I ordered it today. Thank you to the OP.

Got tired of being messed around by Very. Anyone using the Very site should be beware. Read the small print and create a cash account instead of a credit account if you wish to pay in full.

Any luck with this? I am wanting one for my ps4pro but wonder if at this price point, it is a waste of money 4k/hdr wise?
Do you really need a new TV? New model out every month.

Active crystal colour lol what next ?

​Yeah worked. But tele does not support latest hdr 10 format as tele came out in 2015.

I've got the 49" version and it's great. The viewing angle isn't bad. It's sunlight thats the big problem in my opinion. The curve makes it much worse

HDR 10 - is that 10 bit or something else entirely?

viewing angel,style and the fact that they are already being fased out..curved tv is almost dead in 2017..so in a couple of years you are left with "one if those things that were once the trend but now outdated and silly"..(and for a good reason).

This explains it a bit:

I was looking at this one in Curry's with a 4K feed and it looked great 10bits (8bits + FRC)

That is very helpful - thank you. I was looking at the Sony 49" on Game website for £699 - because researching it last night I believed it was true 10bit but looking on the website you've shown me, it's listed as 8bit+FRC(frame rate control for those who know even less than me) but I need to double check I have right model number - can't do that until the Game website is back up n running -they're offline at mo' ...

I have a lot of credit too and I was tempted by this but my concern now is that it is already obsolete in the sense that it is not 10bit or even 8bit+FRC (it is 8bit) and from the bit of research I have done the quality of the apparent colours will be lower with this TV and therefore so may be the 'experience'. I only want one to make full use of my ps4pro's ability - deciding how much I need to spend is becoming a chore...

What of the fact it is 'only' 8bit please?

Depending on the size, I think you would have to spend double the price. This site gives better detail uk.rtings.com/tv/…500

I learned a new word here on hukd - obsolesence.
curved Tvs are already obsolete..don't waste money on something that in 2 years time you will feel ashamed of owning.
but flat screen.
curved was just a short lived gimmick just like 3D TV.

it is only for stylish people with stylish houses and the problem is that beggars did not buy enough 3D films, that is why was not convenient to produce
