code ends 24th. think this TV will drop on boxing day? or after the new year?

You will often find the price of TV's drop over time. Sometimes they go up, but only if they become rare or owned by a celebrity. I bought a 2003 Sony Trinitron 32" for £10,000 last week because it was owned by David Beckham. Result!!

​it hit that price on black Friday, seems to be a lot of interest in this tv at this price as it's apparently proper 10 bit. I hope the price goes lower because I'm after one but I don't think it will.

Hope so new year get cheaper

I want this tv too but wud be gutted if price drops lower in January don't no wot to do

It's not about the bits (as the difference between 8bit and 10bit is minimal, especially at a normal viewing distance and when you factor in dithered 8bit to emulate 10bit) - it's all about the nits! Anything near 1000nits and you'll see what HDR is all about, and I think this is one of the few mid-price TV's that manages anywhere near that.

Not sure if this is the 10 bit panel (thought only the 8000 & 9000 series were)? However to say 10 bit verses 8 bit it minimal seems a bit off seeing as the difference between over 1 Billion colours verses 17 Million colours sounds like an aweful lot to me!

this TV is definitely 10 bit from what I've read

It's not about peak nits, it's about range. LED go high but OLED go low. It's why they can all be certified. TV tech will probably level out and become affordable at a reference level in a few years if you really want to wait that long.

Question is, would you rater have a K7000 or OLED 4k set if offered at the same price? Only one answer.

You are right, the difference between 1billion and 17million is quite large, but then we are effectively talking about gradiation between colours, and you'd have to sit very close to the screen to see or determine that sort of minute changes in colour - it's declining ratios of return as there's not enough pixels on the screen to show that number of colours in the first place. The benefits of HDR are mainly in extension of range and contrast, and this is mainly determined by the comparative difference between light and dark - effectively the dynamic range of light, and nits is the most effective way to measure this on an LED display.
As mentioned above, OLED are able to start at a lower black level as they effectively pass no light, whereas LED start at grey and have a range that extends upwards from that - for LED the brighter the better as long as you can maintain the bottom of the range effectively. Whilst it has been mentioned that it's not all about nits but range, it is difficult (impossible) to attain that range without the nits (at least not on LED).

worth mentioning this also gets the 5 year warranty. Added heat!

Is it true that the 7000 in Europe is actually the 8000 model in America?

I have this TV bought from Crampton & Moore with sound bar, subwoofer and 4 k player and free deliver and can say that the 1300 paid well worth every penny.... JUST MAKE SURE YOU GET AN APPROPRIATE STAND 120CM AS THE LEGS ARE THE ONLY ISSUE WITH THE TV IF USING A TV STAND. OTHERWISE GET A BRACKET TV STAND.

​Shopping, you're doing it right

Cancelled my currys order. But been reading more about this tele and not too impressed with the samsung one connect box, it makes hiding the cables in trunking nearly impossible and the lead is only 1.5 meters long (need 3-4 minimum).. A shame really.. If I can work a out a way I'll order again!

You can get longer cable runs

You can get longer cable runs



No, you can't as it's not a standard cable. There is one 3 meter length that costs £60-80, but not longer that I can see.

the salesman in curry's told me to stay clear of this tv and go for a Sony kd55xd8599 because of the back case coming unstuck and the motion problems. everything is as clear as mud mixed reviews, every opinion is different on the technical specifications, no word from Samsung about the concerns. I want to buy this but I'm not pulling the trigger yet.

10 bit panel and Samsungs HDR1000 claim - I have the TV, and although I have yet to truly push it with HDR feed, I have a PS4 Pro and Uncharted 4 outputting in HDR mode...Colours are spectacular on that for what it's worth.

I got that in Curry's as well - except my Salesman was wearing a Sony shirt - so he was hardly unbiased.
Bought the Samsung & no motion problems or unsticking cases

Very happy with it so far ,
As you'd expect a 4K signal like 'The Crown' on Netflix is excellent , but HD channels are pretty good. too.

I was worried about this as I had all my cable chased into the wall. however just used simple picture hanging velcro to stick it to the back of the tv. simple

Mines on order from sonic direct defo 10 bit as that's what I'm looking for. And got it at Black Friday price

I got John Lewis to price match this last night. Delivery on Monday. If the stuttering is an issue it will be easier to replace with JL. And if it drops in price in the sales I'll claim the difference back.

I just got the price match as well, I'm in two minds whether to pull the trigger!

The voucher code doesn't seem to work anymore
