Managed to get JL to price match Reliant direct at £450. So got 5 years guarantee.

It's an edge lit IPS-type panel, which is a combo very unlikely to be totally free of light bleed, though some will obviously be much worse than others. Also 8-bit+FRC, whereas the 55" model is true 10-bit I believe. But of course costs more too.
eBuyer's got it at 449 too
Just be aware that you might need to turn off the SEC_Linkshare wireless on the TV as it can interfere with the Broadband routers WiFi

Thanks for that bit of info @Aretak

Do you know which of the Samsung 49 / 50" models (at a sub £500 price range) have non edge-lit panels? Or are least prone to light bleed issues?
I would strongly advise not to buy this TV, had it exchanged twice over Christmas all had terrible light bleed, now waiting on John Lewis to replace it with an LG. Save yourself the trouble I’ve been through and don’t buy.

The UE49MU6120 would be your best bet if you want to stick with Samsung. It's actually down the product stack from this one, but uses a VA panel and those are typically much less prone to light bleed problems, despite the fact that it's still edge lit (as is pretty much everything at this price point). There's also the UE49MU6220, which is basically the same but with a curved panel.

Otherwise you'd have to consider a different manufacturer (though avoid LG, or at least have a good read up on what an 'RGBW' panel is before you buy).

How did you find the returns process with John Lewis? Only I bought a tv from them over xmas and its got bad vertical banding so it'll have to go back...wondering whether to prepare for a nightmare or relatively hassle free?

John Lewis has excellent customer service. Should be no problem at all. I don't deal with anyone else and haven't for a good few years now.

Thanks for the reply, first tv I've bought from them you see. I know they had a great reputation before but heard its gone down hill these last couple of years? I probably shouldn't have looked at the shocking trustpilot reviews either haha

Thanks for the info again guys. I have a UE55KS9000TX in the living room and it has serious bleed issues like that image - although it's only really noticeable sometimes and mostly if the room is also dark (which it rarely is). The 2nd TV is for our bedroom so definitely want to avoid anything too prone to similar issues. I'll most likely go for the 6120 then.
@Aretak All sizes are 8 bit FRC but only 40" has got VA panel. In my opinion light bleed in Samsungs is intolerable.

Is this the TV shown in the listing because I just got one and I have no light bleed. Does that mean my one is fine or will it happen later on

I bought the 40” version at the weekend end have no light bleed problems whatsoever.

Yes this is the same one. Doubt you’ll get it later on. My one had the issues out the box. I guess it’s a bit of a lottery with these panels.

You may want try a movie in the dark with the borders, that’ll give a better indication of the light bleed issues.
There's a .of of talk about light bleed. What is the likely hood of having light bleed repaired under a 5 year warranty? I have a SONY KDL55 which is starting to exhibit light bleed similar to the images. It's from JL with 2 years remaining. Is light bleed classed as a fault?
I have this TV. I love it. Yes it has some minor light bleed if in the dark watching a very dark scene.

However, this situation accounts for about 1% of my viewing.

When watching normal TV or a normal film with the light on I can't see any bleed.

I have a Panasonic in 50" DX700 which was the same price as the Samsung (£600) and bought at the samee time. Both have great picture, but the Samsung user experience is way better than the Panasonic, which feels dated.

At this price is say the Samsung is a no brainer.

BUY BUY BUY!!
