£200 knocked off. Looks decent. Will add reviews to the post.
Still around £700 at John Lewis, Amazon and Richer Sounds, I think...

No 3D.

£530? (Is this not just the Currys version so they don't have to price match?)
what i find telling is that currys pcworld, tesco, asda, etc, have so little confidence in the lines they sell that they will not offer a five year guarantee. these retailers are more knowledgeable than us and they don't trust the product to last five years. if they did they would offer it

Yup, this is an old Dixons Group trick that still carries on around the various spin off chains - they have the electrical product specifically labelled and given a model number exclusive to the group or chain, and they then claim it is a different model and not subject to price match.
Looking for a decent 4k telly, is there anything better than this on offer at the moment?
Or will OLEDs come down in price soon?

I have the U 6450 which is a Currys specific model. The price was £689 when I bought it in December.
It's ok but there are problems of motion judder (soap effect ) on Eastenders and Coronation St especially which no amount of motion setting adjustment seems to improve.
Also viewing angles are very poor resulting in loss of picture colour when viewed from even the slightest angle from the side.
Took me around 2 weeks fiddling with the settings to get the colour decent.
Ended up setting it up on dynamic colour and reducing the preset colour by 5.

Different model.
According to the review here s21.com/sam…htm the only difference between this and the 6400 is that the 6445 has a pqi of 1000 compared to that of 900 for the 6400.
Just wondering whether the £599 price tag is justified when I can get the 6400 with extended warranty from RS for the same price...

not sure if you're making a joke re soap effect, but cant you just turn off motion interpolation? should solve the problem...just a setting.

they likely will...CES 2016 started bringing a lot of affordable oled options in PCs...I would guess you'll see oled price drops in TV soonish, but not 100% sure.

​It's not that at all! they WANT the product to fail so that you need a new one. My friend used to be a divisional manager and he said that they have considered this several time but thought it would affect sales.

Google the term ' soap effect' and you'll come up with many posts regarding this problem on the latest tv"s.
I'm no expert but apparently it's because soaps are filmed using film at 24 frames per second rater than video which is 30 frames per second hence the lower frame rate causes judder.
Turning off the motion enhancing settings does help slightly as with it on there is a weird blurred smoothing effect.

​yeah did check. its just motion interpolation. just turn it off.
The 6445 has something called MicroDimming which the 6400 doesn't, this is what gives the 6445 a PQI of 1000 (vs the 6400's rating of 900).

I have the 48JU6445 and have no complaints, a lot of the complaints of judging during games etc seem to have been fixed with firmware updates.
