Don't John Lewis add on the price of the other seller's 5 year warranty before doing the price match?

Good price for a non 3D TV...Specially 55" TV

. No they don't. Hence way it's always best to JL price as you receive 5 yr warranty as standard with them.

Will this work with Hollyoaks?

No, with the new Samsung S-Hite feature, Hollyoaks isn't available. It can't receive Channel 5 at all.

The Samsung UE55HU6900 is a case of you get what you pay for. Yes it’s 4K, but only when the picture on screen is mostly still. Once the camera starts panning, resolution drops away quite noticeably, and unfortunately there’s no motion-enhancing technology available on the set to reduce blurring.

from my experience when doing a price match they always asked if the other seller is offering the 5 years and it they don't they refuse it. something if they get lots of price matches they many over look thing which is rare from my experience with them. its like playing the lottery

my dad bagged a 55" lg for £899 3d 4 pairs of glasses and 2 pairs of gaming glasses, 7 sky sports passes and 3 months of sky movies. If we'd have been lucky £10 per England goal from the world cup :-)

they did reduce the TV to £799 when then world cup started.

Not the best 4k tv. Read its reviews. Not worth the money.

but lgs are passive 3d which is a complete waste of time

If they call 4k ultra hd then what are they going to call 8k and 16k after that? I think they shoot themselves in the foot by naming these without thinking ahead.

Passive wins IMO as active just gives me headaches. The glasses are much cheaper and lighter too. Can't wait for 1080p passive 3D on 4K displays.

At CES in January, some manufacturers demonstrated 3D TV without the need for glasses. It works quite well.
They expect units to ship in quantity mid 2015. So you should see these sets soon at the usual 2-3K then down to sub 1k for mid 2015.

3D is an absolute waste of time, "smart"is too...my next tv will not have either that's for sure.

No 4K netflix. One of the only thing's that shows 4K

I had a look at this but wasn't at all convinced, too many features stripped out. I think I'm going to wait for the UE55HU7500 to come down in price as that looks like a great 4k TV to me

I want smart, as long it includes the main 5 catch up features and Plex. That way I can convince the missus that if she has to have the fireplace, I have to have a smart TV (i.e. new) to get rid of 3 boxes that sit where the fireplace needs to go

So that's a big positive then!

I've had a 3D TV for the past 2 years and used the feature about 3 times, it's really not worth it tbh

passive is way better in my opinion no need for expensive glasses, more of the cinema feel about it also active tends to give me and other people I know head aches after a while where as passive I could watch all day no problem

Looks like refresh rate is the new megapixel = more equals better except that's rarely the case. I really don't understand how people can stomach the awful soap opera effect motion smoothing gives to films. As long as a set can play 24p correctly I couldn't care less about the tv adding in hundreds of made up frames.

Every time I go to a friends house and watch a film I think to myself this looks weird, it looks artificial and cheap and then I remember why. It's really a bizzare thing.

Each to their own I guess but at the end of the day I'd rather have a set that can just sync to the framerate of the signal it's receiving. Watching something where 75% of the frames are constructed by the tv just seems odd to me. I guess it's helpful for sport but otherwise I don't see the point and can't understand why the refresh rate myth is being perpetuated.

24hz footage is perfectly smooth as long as it's being displayed correctly and judder free.

I was like that, but now I'm used to it - I can't go back to "normal" 24fps.

Was watching the Wolf of Wall St round at a friends who's TV doesn't have motion interpolation and it just looked jumpy to me, almost like a flipbook effect.

Can't wait for "true" 60fps to become standard as this will get rid of the artefacts generated by the motion interpolation.

Agree, I disabled all the post processing on my Samsung as the soap opera effect was horrible.

3% Quidco too - knocks it down to £969.99 and it's FREE DELIVERY

I've seen this TV in person, and it is still a stunner if properly calibrated. It may not be up there with the top 4K TV's in terms of the fluidity of the motion but for £969 delivered for a 55" top brand 4K TV, it's a steal.

This is samsung's budget option and it shows, you would be better off spending a bit more on (or waiting for) the HU7500 or HU8500
