From samsung TVs that are about 10 years old unlike my trusty Toshiba 'smart tv ' which lost all its apps when it was 2 years old as they were no longer supported. I'd stick with the supplier who sells the most tvs as they will continue to be supported

Thats fair enough, but its the exception. Most of the TV deals filtering through today are nothing new
Does anyone know if this TV is any good? Been waiting for a good deal but very disappointed with the black Friday deals.
This or the Hisense B7500? I've got both on reserve, not sure which is better!

I've ordered it, there's better and there's worse with corresponding cheaper and more expensive, you can pay anywhere between £230 and £600 for a 43" TV you just need to set your budget

A pretty tough question TBH. The B7500 has Dolby Vision, which will probably win out the HDR format wars, but the Samsung's HDR10 format will certainly continue to be supported for years to come. The Samsung also has the Tizen-based OS which I find a joy to use compared to the rather clunky Vidaa OS in the Hisense; the former will definitely continue to be supported from an App viewpoint for many years over the Hisense. The Samsung also has the new Apple TV app, and compatibility with Alexa and Google smart platforms.

I think the Samsung edges out on PQ as well, based on this review.

But if its only got an 8 bit panel and no local dimming surely having Dolby Vision has zero benefit over HDR?

I'm also torn between models at this price point!

Does anyone know how the Philips 43PUS6554 would fare against the other two mentioned, for the same price? richersounds.com/phi…tml

The Phillips seems to feature both Dolby Vision & HDR10+
Think that’s biting point for me! Thanks OP 🏻
This one or Philips 43PUS6554?

Well all sets in this price range will have an 8 bit, edge lit panel. My slight concern is that other HDR formats will be phased out over the extended guarantee period, leaving TVs with Dolby Vision with a slight edge (granted, you'll never see the full benefits of DV at this price point but the picture will be slightly better over not having it, specially coupled with the Wide Colour Gamut of the Hisense). However, the Samsung has a lot going for it, including Alexa and Google smart platform compatibility, the Apple TV app, a far more robust, future proof smart OS and based on this review from TechRadar, the B7500 is bested by the Samsung.
I purchased this TV last time it was on offer with the eBay's 20% off. I'm no tech guru but the picture and TV have been great so far!

I think it may go the other way HDR+ (that this TV has) will be more popular than Dolby Vision due to Dolby's extra licensing fee's
If you're prepared to ditch 6yrs for 5yrs with Currys, you'll get a potential 15% cashback. £45 is definitely worth thinking about. If you do find it cheaper, they'll price match.

How do you cast via airplay to samsung tv?
Hey all. Any recommendations are appreciated, would you go for the above, spend a little more and get Samsung UE43RU7100 or less and go for Bush DLED40UHDHDRS. Just need something half decent for the bedroom.
and 2% quidco or tcb

They only price match if the warranties are comparable as well

They price match JL's as they offer 5 year warranties, also certain products come with 5 year manufacturer warranty ie Linsar. So they would price match those
I just ordered this from Argos...only ordered it from Argos because I had a £100 gift card for it, and because I am getting 12% cashback on the purchase. Since I got the gift card at a 20% rebate, and considering the cashback, I effectively paid £243 for this tv.

I chose this tv for 3 reasons: 1) reviewers said it was probably the best tv in its price range 2) because the Tizen OS gets such good reviews and 3) because it will be occasionally used for PC gaming and, from what I gather, the game-mode input lag is only 10ms!

For me it came down to this, the Hisense equivilant or the TCL 43" Roku. I was going to go with the TCL because it was cheaper and I have heard rave reviews of it...but then I found that some suggest the UK version is not good for gaming as it has a higher input lag. So this led me to the Samsung. And, considering I had a 100 gift-card it was really a no brainer with the added cashback.
Sure will...I get it Friday

Wont you get awful screen tearing PC gaming on a TV?

From what I gather screen tearing is caused by the gpu pumping out more frames than the screens refresh rate can handle. I’m not worried that my gtx970 is going to overwhelm the tv in 4K or even 1440.

The tv is 60hz, apparently it has a good response time, and little imput lag so I hop it will work well.

Btw I bought this primarily to work as a tv to replace the pc monitor we are using as a tv.

think its more to do with a PC not having a constant framerate so as the action on screen changes so does the FPS to the TV, the TV gets out of sync and you get the screen tearing. Using Vsync on the PC is an option but I've never had much success with it.
But isn’t that why you choose a tv with a good response time? When put into game mode the response time and input lag of this tv should put it in line with many monitors.

response time and input lag has nothing to do with screen tearing. Screen tearing is when the graphics card is out of sync with the display. To stop screen tearing on a TV you want a more powerful graphics card that can keep up with the refresh rate of the TV.

I am not saying it does. You are right, screen tearing occurs when the GPU pumps out more FPS than the screen can display throwing them out of sync. That is fine...what I am questioning is why you think this tv would be inherently worse than any given monitor? I mean, I have an Acer 27" 1080p@60hz which has a 5ms response time...when I play bf4 at +100fps there may be some tearing but nothing horrendous. Why would the TV, with similar specs vis a vis hz and response time be horrendously worse?

I'm not going to say it will be 'horrendously worse' but TV's have built in anti motion blur systems that add in extra frames or even black frames to try and stop the blurring effect from LCD's. Some TV's will be better than others and I don't think monitors have this same technology hence why a monitor is better for gaming.
