I'm not a big fan of the retailer but its still £50 cheaper than john lewis and still comes with the 5 year warranty. I doubt john lewis will match pcworld if a code is used but maybe worth a go.

They want to price match or I'll cancel my order and take my business elsewhere.

But PC World and Currys get my worst retailer vote.

John Lewis price matched at this price in between Christmas and new year.. But I'm sure it wasn't a voucher

John Lewis price matched this from currys for me at xmas at this price. Since then I've returned 2 tvs due to faults and currently on my third. Picture of this tv can be fantastic but it's far from a perfect to (check forums before buying). Bear this in mind before you decide which retailer you want to buy it from.

not sure if they will



We don't expect you to find a lower price at another high street competitor for the same individual product, sold with the same service conditions - but if you can, we'll match the price when you buy, or refund the difference for up to 28 days after you've purchased from us when you make a price match claim.

We have shops, call centres and a website giving you flexibility in how and when you buy from us. The level of service we offer can't therefore be equalled by online or mail-order only retailers such as Amazon or Play.com - and it's for this reason we don't match their prices. There are also some fitting and installation service conditions we take into account when we look at a price match - see below for details.

We match prices publicly available to all customers, based on those displayed in a shop, on the high street competitor's own website, or the first price quoted to us over the phone. The price has to apply to an identical individual product in terms of make, model, size or colour. We match bundles only on a case by case basis, and we don't match special prices only available to certain customers – such as negotiated prices or prices for groups like account holders or club members. We don't match prices only available via 3rd party websites, or with voucher codes

Yeah mate. just be patient and wait a couple of weeks at the most. I've bought the 55" ks9000 a couple of months back and haven't even opened it yet

Is this better or KS8000?

They did, but there was a voucher on Currys part.

I think if you tried to ask JL for a price match they will reject because of the T&C's of price match.

But like before they might just do it on the website anyway

​I've got issues with mine with motion blur and judder. I've had mine since December 27th from curry's. obviously out of 30 day money back guarantee. are you still in yours or are you on your third set through Samsung warranty?

Can I ask? There are numerous reports of micro-stutter on this set (I too am in the market for a 55 or 60) and there just as many claiming this judder can be eliminated within advanced settings related to motion and frame insertion etc. Have you exhausted all these menu options?

I have auto motion plus turned off. I turn it off an all TVs. It has been fine, not seen any judder or anything like that.

This was my understanding. Via settings judder could be eliminated.

I have Sky Q arriving on Friday & I am on the look out for a 55" - 65" with a maximum budget of £1000. Is this the TV for me? Sky Q + PS4 Pro in the near future.

I'm very tempted by this tele, can't beat the picture quality for the price (as long as you are aware of its little issues with certain inputs - I've heard of issues with certain sky channels at 1080i for example). But I've got my eye on the KS8000 and hoping to find it for 1-1.1k in the next few weeks. Unless one of the new models being released can tempt me..

Mine too. They are just interested in selling you extras that you don't want. Like extra warranties and insurance.

Beware if you buy more then 1 thing with a discount code. If you want a refund on 1 of the items they take the whole discount off your returned item, hence don't refund in full.


Edited by: "Gozer" 14th Mar

Stupid question I know but why can't top of the range TV's just work. I have bought a number over the years and am always disappointed by judder, dirty screen, or light bleed. TBH I'm getting a bit fed up of the whole thing!! I know this is not on topic but just thought I would vent my frustrations. I am in the market for a decent 55" for Xbox Scorpio at the back end of the year so hoping OLED hits the mark.

Rtings found the Q7 to be not much of an improvement, with the KS7000 being marginally better in many areas:
http://uk.rtings.com/tv/reviews/samsung/q7f
(It's a US site so KS8000 there is KS7000 here).

If other sites come up with the same review I wouldn't expect retailers to be that keen to discount them.

Bah! Bought this on Friday for £899 from Curry's on-line. Is there any point trying to phone them for a price match with themselves?

Very happy with the TV - it's a good upgrade from a 7 year old 42" Panasonic Plasma (G20). It took me a while to get the smart remote working for all my sources with sound output to my AV amp.

Bought from Curry's before Xmas, it's an excellent TV.

Returned both to JL within 30 days of receiving. They have been fantastic about it - no hassle at all. Second one had horrendous judder issues. 3rd seems better. Try turning off Auto Motion Plus completely.

As with a lot of people tried a number of sets , the KS7000 range are top quality. I paid £799 for the 49 inch version cos I couldnt fit a 55 inch in the space I had but I would recommend to anyone thinking to buy this TV. Its one of the best things I've ever bought , the colours and contrast are the best I have seen. Sorry I've turned into a fan boy for these sets but its that good.

Agree totally. Last time I buy a brand new latest tech telly. More hassle than it's worth.

Well the Q stands for Quantum and the KS7000 is Quantum Dot Tech... all Samsung did was rebrand it QLED as people see OLED as superior to LCD, so now people will say Samsung are QLED and it's the next big thing.. when it isn't.

I had 3 KS7000s(I sent it back twice), all of them sucked, I don't recommend the TV. Every single one had dead pixels, which sucks as the pixels are so large, still 4K isn't good enough, we need 8K to get that PPI up to a good level. On top of that the left bleeds light so badly, but if you walk off angle slightly, you see bleed shoot up the TV so bad because of the edge based local dimming which is worse than having no local dimming at all.

Then I had problems with the OS and it having no content.. seriously there is nothing there. So what is the point having it at all? I'd rather a dumb TV I put my own box into, than a "smart" one with no features and lag.

You cannot use it as a monitor either, I tried on all 3 of them, but for whatever reason the TV hated my PC and kept flashing black on occasion, I could never fix it..

I just went back to using my 32 inch 5K monitor, which is far superior, but I do have to sit closer.

Get a Oled, Even if its 1080p


4k is **** compared to Oled 1080p

4K is overrated, most of the time you will use 720/1080p

I've got this TV. it only seems to judder through the Sky input at 1080p. PS4, Blu-ray, inbuilt Netflix are all fine.

the judder is a microjudder though, barely noticeable.

This is not uncommon. This doesn't discount in anyway why it should work with a cheap TV and not a top-tier model, but it certainly is not specific to Samsung TV's. It is an EDID issue and is usually corrected with the use of one of these type of devices
amazon.co.uk/LIN…did

If this gets price matched at John Lewis then I'm off to buy a new tv

Just a heads up with this set, the viewing angles are pretty limited (poor imo) and is the main reason I sent mine back. Same goes for the KS8000. I'm hoping this years models will be true to their word and have better viewing angles. My 2010 full HD Samsung TV is excellent in comparison so I've gone back to that until the new Samsung models are released or I go OLED.

I got the 55inch ks7000 in December for £949 from Richer Sounds. Although it did come bundled with a blu-ray player which I sold for a £100 profit. So I guess I got it for £849 too

I should mention I did have micro-stutter and general motion issues, so I told Richer Sounds who promptly sent out a replacement. The replacement (touch wood) is fantastic so far and doesn't have the same problems. The picture really is incredible. PS4 Pro and Netflix and Amazon in 4K / HDR have blown me away. I'm quite satisfied that the TV will do me for 3 years minimum.

So, as much as this is a great price, I would be careful with the retailer as it seems a bit of a lottery whether you get a fault-free panel.

No 49inch model in the new Q7 series, glad I got my bargain KS7000 now at £699 :0)

Yes get on the phone as your within your return period of the TV, where you can ask for price difference then since it has dropped price

I think the price promise is upto 7 days after you ordered the item anyway

Have you Googled the specs and checked yourself?

I've got the 49" on Dec 30th and the TV has had no of the problems other people have had, I don't use it for PS or Xbox. I use it for the TV and internet channels with no problems and the back has not come off, I must be lucky.

Yep. I was wondering wether it's better to pay the extra money for the KS8000, but I guess around £400 more are not justified.
