If you are thinking of buying this set buy from John Lewis as there are a lot of faulty panels out there!

Is that just the 55 or all 6800?

Not a Samsung panel in this model so looks as though Samsung have given some 'nano crystal' technology away. The panel is made by BOE. Or at least the ones available in Holland are....

After reading the Av forums page for this the 55 is not the one to get. but the 50 and 60 have a different panel.

The 50 and 60 inch are va panels the 55 ips, all big tv have some issues so depends how picky you are, I had two of these and couldn't live with the light bleed and pressure points

there are other retailers than John Lewis. If your referring to their 5 year Free Guarantee. That's just a Marketing stunt. Given if unit is faulty your protected under consumer UK law anyway up 6 years ( sale or goods act purchases prior to 1/10/2916 and new consumer rights act for purchases after 1/10/16)

I wasn't I was referring to their no quibble replacement if I'm honest, Most large tvs suffer from issues, a lot of companies are reluctant/make it very difficult to swap tvs that suffer from back light bleed, DSE etc as is an issue with technology more than anything.

Also the 6 year thing is still hard to argue as is still open to interpretation, also if faulty John Lewis will refund the full price up to 5 years, most companies would negotiate usage/age reductions etc

Did you also read the t&cs for this business, really poor!

Marketing stunt or not John Lewis and Richer Sounds are giving you what your rights deserve with being open about warranty and that is repair or compensation up to 6 years. It is such a shame that CURRYS and other retailers cannot do the same. By JL and RS offering you a warranty whether this is their own or by the laws of this country they are making the process of a claim so much easier, hence increasing their sales no doubt.

My son had a recent issue with Currys on a tv that was just under three years old and because he has a law degree he wrote his email of 'complaint' to Currys stating the correct wording of our consumer and limitations acts which were applicable at the time. He got his tv repaired for free. When Currys rang him they were very careful in what they said.

A colleague at work only last week rang Currys about his two and a half year old LG that had yellow vertical lines on the screen which points to a panel fault. Currys told him that as he didn't take their own warranty out at the point of sale or within 12 months after purchasing same he had no claim with them. So are Currys committing an illegal act by stating this in the hope that the customer goes away and buys another tv, probably from them. When our government thought it necessary to introduce these laws they could have forced retailers to ensure that customers were well aware of what their rights were should anything happen after the 12 months manufacturers warranty.

Not forgetting also that Currys appear to be 'oblivious' of not only our UK laws but also EU law which gives 2 years warranty on electrical products. Last time I checked we were still a member of the EU and it's nice to see that some manufacturers play ball with this by stating 2 years on the warranty information.

I can provide detailing of the correct wording to send to Currys, Argos or any other high street retailer to ensure what you state is correct. It is quite simple. You tell them the issue and state you wish to make a claim under our Consumer Act and Limitation Act they cannot fob you off as to do so will be illegal.

What Currys will do is state they will collect the tv for £95.00. If they find it to be a manufacture fault they will either repair it, replace it (depending on the age, value etc) or give you some compensation agains another tv. Don't expect for them to give you a new tv when yours fails at 5 years old. It doesn't quite work like that. The main thing is they have to do something about it. Most people don't bother. I gave my colleague at work the correct wording for him to email Currys but he didn't really want to part with the £95.00 and was looking at purchasing another instead. This is what Currys want you to do. They hope you don't want the hassle and to part with good money after bad. This is not the case. The £95.00 covers them in case someone has tampered with the tv, spilt something on it, altered the calibration setting etc etc.

Make your claim. The more people who claim using our laws the bigger message will go back to the manufacturers stating that the uk will not accept cheap parts anymore and if that puts the price up by 20 or 30 quid wouldn't you rather have that and a tv which will last 7, 8, 9 or 10 years compared to one that needs replacing in 3 years time.

Possibly not if you was expecting a Samsung panel or a Sharp panel which are rumoured to be best in a Samsung. I think it's about time manufacturers should be forced to state on their tv's who the panel is made by as there are a lot of people out there who buy LG, Samsung and Sony thinking it's the manufacturer's own panel in the tv and a lot of the time it isn't especially on the lower price range. Some models have totally the manufacturer's panel, e.g the Samsung UE48H6400 was only a Samsung panel. The curved Samsung are their own. Not sure about others but I can check. My son has a UE40EH5000. It has a sharp panel in it and two other manufacturers of panel are listed. My living room LG has an AU Optronics VA panel in it when it was advertised as having an LG IPS panel. The panel lottery goes on and on.

Just going back to your original question a lot of the American forums criticise the use of this panel. I have an IPS Che Mei panel in one of our LG's. It's fine. A bit blocky on fast moving but that's probably more to do with the processing than the panel. The picture is bright and sharp.
