Fantastic price for this TV. Currently £1,199 at John Lewis but they have just agreed to price match it so you get the 5 year warranty.

Please, no need for the 10 bit, HDR, Dolby Vision, curved debates etc etc etc, this is a cracking price!!

Hope it helps someone. John Lewis agreed it within 3 hours.

It wouldn't be HotUKDeals without a debate.
Good deal but JL refused the price match when I phoned. Maybe it's something I said. If anyone get a price match, update on how you did it and what you told them... Maybe just inundated with price match requested a P'ed them off today

I just did it via the online form. In the comments be sure to mention that its free delivery or it can be collected for free in store.

I did the online thing once and by the time they answered, the other store had sold out and so they couldn't price match.

This is the cheapest available. Possibly cold because of the offer on the 55" a couple of weeks ago.
The Sony xe90 tv for £874 imo is a better TV

Samsung rate the ue55mu7000 as having a PQI (picture quality index) of 2300 and the ue49mu9000 as having a PQI of only 2100, so amazingly they are actually prepared to admit that the TV they label as being a 'rung down' is better. The PQI system is useless for comparing across brands (e.g. with LG and Sony TVs) because each brand adopts its own ratings, but for TVs from the same brand its pretty instructive.

Unfortunately you are comparing a 49" to a 55" that factors into the PQI. It would be unfair to compare the 49" mu7000 as it's a inferior panel compared to the 55" mu7000.
The 55mu9000 has a PQI of 2700 that's a fairer comparison.
The mu7000 doesn't have local dimming this does, not a very good one but it does have something that is important for HDR. So it is a better TV then the mu7000

Hi Smadmad

There's nothing unfortunate about it, that was the comparison that was asked for. The 55mu7000 is a superior TV on Samsung's own rating system to the 49mu9000 which costs considerably more and is smaller. I have no idea how Samsung formulate the nonsense that is PQI, but if you're telling size is a factor I believe you. Display specifications (not gospel I know) indicates that the 55mu7000 has some form of local dimming in any event.

That the 55mu9000 is rated higher is by-the-by given that it's current best price £1,174 at coop electrical.coop.co.uk/bra…-s/ even with a code (CPA75).

It isn't the superior TV. Regardless of pqi score because that doesn't factor in a lot of factors. It will measure brightness, resolution, etc but doesn't factor in other things like local dimming, upscaling, picture enhancements. The mu9000 and the flat mu8000 even in 49" are better tv's just because of the precision local dimming. The difference that makes to HDR is good. I have always ignored pqi
