This was £999 a few weeks back, may well come down further in the next couple of weeks but at the minute this is the cheapest available price on-line with a 5 year guarantee.

Richer Sounds are offering a 6yr guarantee but in-store only.

£889 at Costco with their 5 year warranty if you are a member.

I understood, like, half of those words!
Absolute bargain
In 3 years perhaps when 4K content is here. Still very limited.
Sky 4k has been announced?
And BBC next year
£10 cheaper from Costco if your lucky enough to have membership costco.co.uk/vie…043
Can you record TV on this?
Hdr?
What is hdr and is that important and also what's the lag for gaming
DVR and series link?
I thought richer sounds guarantee was online as well?
There are a lot of comments on other websites saying that the picture on the 55ins is nowhere near as good as the 50ins (which i have just bought) due to the panel being made by a 3rd party.

​Thanks for the info, do you have a model number and link perhaps to the 50" version you mention? Thanks.
good find op, heat
Its UE50JU6800 i got mine from Curry's for £699 with 5 year guarantee and 6 months of Netflix free the guy in Curry's tells me the 5 year guarantee is done by Samsung themselves which has got to be better than the Curry's one! I have owned both Sony and LG equivalents in the last couple of months (both went wrong and had bad picture quality) and the Samsung is far superior to either of those, The upscaling on HD is amazing.
It's only a Deal if it's relevant. With extremely little 4K content. There's little point.
The JU6800 is the one with 2 different manufacturers for the panels as far as I am aware. The 50" and 60" are VA panels and the 55" is IPS.
see here >>AVFORUMS LINK<<
It was also £899.99 about a month ago as I have been looking at this set and am waiting for the 55" to drop below £899

What is actually broadcasting in 4K at the moment tho? I know Netflix is, the new amazon fire tv and some Internet sites but when realistically are channels going to be compatible with 4K? anyone up to date with this ??[

We have the 55 inch - just bought it last month and i have to say the picture is absolutely fantastic.

Of note though, Samsung give all their TVs a PQI (Picture Quality Index) rating, and both the 50 inch variant and the 55 inch variant have the same rating of 1400.

I'd go further and say the picture quality of the 55 is stunning.

It has 4K upscaling which it does extremely well, so theres every point.

We had a 48 inch Samsung HD LCD before this one and the picture difference is genuinely night and day with the 4K upscaling.

Review from that thread of the 55....

"I bought the UE55JU6800K last Thursday from John Lewis. With the £70 extra care cover. So, 5 years warranty, and 5 years extra care. Seemed like the only option. The extra cover from Currys was 250 pounds or so.

The TV looks amazing, played around with the settings and settled on the following (but they may change...)

Picture Mode - Movie
Backlight - 10
Contrast - 90
Brightness - 45
Sharpness - 0
Colour - 52
Tint - 50/50
Colour tone - Warm2
Digital Clean View - Off
MPEG Noise Filter - Off
HDMI Black level - Auto
Auto Motion Plus - Off
Colour Space – Auto

I have a NAS Drive with all my movies and TV shows on, which it picks up from DLNA. I have a Samsung sound bar, which connects wirelessly with Bluetooth.

XboxOne games look superb, playing Diablo 3, and GTA V, both look amazing, the level of detail makes it like a playing new games.

Football is great, especially in HD.

I use the Peel remote control on my Samsung S6 Edge as the remote.

Really can't fault the TV, although there was a little back light bleed in the bottom right and left hand corners. But with the adjustments made above, its virtually disappeared.

3 days after I bought it from JL for £999 it dropped by £100. I went back on Tuesday, and they refunded it straight away.

At £899 its an absolute steal."
Is this a 10bit panel, if not forget HDR.
I'm a bit surprised by the sniffy comments from some about this TV. Its ultimately Samsungs entry level range so if you really want top end features buy a top end TV and pay a top end price.

If other TVs offer more functionality with the same size for the same price or less then great, show us the links.

However for the price, i have to say i find this a VERY impressive TV.

From what I've read, not many do? Certainly not at this price point?
Don't forget that anyone with an iPhone 6S can record video in 4K so for me having a to to watch the 4K family videos on is great even if there isn't a lot of to content out there yet. Just a matter of time for that.
Anyone know if this will drop in price? And is this better than Sony KD55X8509C?

This is more akin to Sony's x80c, as both are entry level. The x85x is a step up.

Invariably, yes. It will drop in price. However it depends how long you want to wait.

This seems to be a new price drop (it was £999 last month from the major retailers when we bought ours), so I dont think there will be another drop imminently

Depends how you define "top notch". This is the entry level model at an entry level price, however it will run rings round most TVs it is likely to be replacing in any household.

I think its a fantastic TV. However there are other TVs that are fractionally better, costing more. You pays your money...
Edited by: "pgilc1" 22nd Nov 2015

Currys had this for £899 for the whole of this week so I don't see how this is any different. Hopefully they will drop, not in a rush but definitely keeping my eyes on both TV's. How are you finding your this TV?

Sorry, Ignore the last message. I manage to miss it somehow.

No probs

I think the merit in this deal is the 5 year warranty and not having to risk dealing with PC / World Currys after sales service?
Sharp have already announced they have an 8K tv so we are always behind the times lol.
I have just bought the new Panasonic VIERA TX55CX680B for £899 from Richer Sounds and it has a 6 year warranty, it's amazing!!! Better than the Samsung in my opinion.
I almost pulled the trigger on this TV when in Curry's earlier. They didn't have the stock so stuck until next weekend. The chap didnt expect it feature in the Black Friday sales - he pointed to the boxes upon boxes of older sets at the ready stacked at the back as the likely sales weekend options!

Anyway, I was blown away by the image and colour quality on this set. Really impressed - the 4K demonstration was pretty stunning to be honest. I only noticed the very occasional blur/glitch but as streaming from USB I figured it most likely to do with that (no problems when on other demonstrations).
The manufacturers certainly know how to present their tv's well in the shop don't they when they are running at their 4k usb stick. Just remember it's never going to look that good in your house when viewing sky (for now) and freeview but at least if you tootle down to Richer Sounds and their store has sky like mine does, you will be able to see properly what you are buying in SD, HD and 4k.

For the record and according to a samsung parts supplier in Holland the 55" for over there has a panel made by some company called BOE based in China. Not sure about UK and wonder if Samsung would want to answer the question.

I have to say, we're very impressed with the upscaling that this TV does. You definitely get a much sharper picture than with our previous Samsung 48 HD TV.

Is the Pana better? Genuine question. Heard great things about Tizen on the Samsung, never heard anything about Pana's software. What about upscaling? Few reviews I've read suggest Sony and Samsung are leading the way on upscaling non 4k content?

Been reading quite a bit about panels, lotteries etc etc. Nothing wrong with the BOE panels from what I have been reading. It seems that all the people on the american websites insist on having a samsung panel. It would also appear that the panel code is on the boxes on their tv's but haven't seen that here. Allegedly you can look through the vents in the back of the tv around where the serial number sticker is and they have the panel code, eg TH01, US01 etc on the inside.

Anyway if the UK version is the same as for all Europe it would appear there is no panel lottery on the JU6800 50" & 55" as there is only one manufacturer listed for both.

Whilst tests using technical equipment may state one panel manufacturer maybe better than another I find the best test is my own eyesight. A test which no doubt came in very useful for the purchase of your new tv. It is one that is very much on my shopping list.
Can it HDR??
