Reboxed unit with only 12 month warranty
Original Poster
I’ve already ordered one and box had been opened but the TV was brand new and I’m more than happy with it at this price. Brilliant 4K picture with 1000 nit HDR.
If I could get it with a 5 year warranty then I would give it a shoot, but 12 months is just too short a time.
Cracking TV but the moth eye filter would give me nightmares with a 2 year old roaming free...
I don’t think 12 months warranty is a big problem. The item was reboxed but had been tested before resell
so its second hand?

Wise choice. Bought mine 11 months ago from JL for £850 inc. price match with 5 year warranty. First one Hdmi ports failed after 3 weeks and second one arrived with the back becoming unstuck (common on these). I put up with the back thing as the panel was ok but now will have to get the panel changed for reasons shown and am not the only one. Other than that its a good set for the money but not if it won't last you long just after 12 month.

Its a good set, my parents have one so I know how good they can be but as you said agent003 its a set that can go very wrong with. 5 year warranty is a must imo, I swear that when this was posted in the past that someone managed to get a 5 year out of them for buying it. Might give them a call tomorrow.
I got KS9000 from JL a few month ago and the light bleed was so horrendous it went back. This is quite common on these.

I’d be careful specially as they are reboxed I.e. returned probably for the same reason.
12 short months warranty and a second hand tv..... You can buy it. I'll wait for 6 months.

Thats worse than a brand new TV with just a years warranty though. I would never buy a brand new TV with a single years warranty anyway.
There's a bit of EU legislation somewhere that says products must have a two year warranty. Don't ask me to find it but it does exist and I have used it when pushed to get my money back. In Spain they actually use it as a selling point on products. In the UK most companies do their damndest to get out of honouring or dealing with a year's warranty. Anyway, by-the-by, as if you bought it now you wouldn't get to take advantage of much of the second year anyway.

Good TV and does reach over 1000 nits but not a good HDR TV. I have owned this, X800D and the X900E and prefer the X900E out of all of them easily, and produces the best HDR.

Didn’t enjoy the colours on the KS7000 and the edge lit local dimming made it terrible for HDR. if you don’t have a good number of local dimming zones you’ll end up with a blanket of brightness that’ll burn your eyes.

Is it worth £400 or so more for the X900E over this price? I would say perhaps, but others would strongly disagree.

My summary point is don’t expect an amazing HDR picture from this TV.

I think for the money you can’t get a better TV than this. I know the X900E is a superb TV but a lot more money. Anyone know of a better TV under £700?

Im afraid you've answered your own question there....Im sure there are excellent tvs out there for about £500 and under that are also very good for the money....
And just be aware that this TV won't play 4k broadcasted from BBC iPlayer..... I have the 7500 and was quite disappointed that Samsung have not enabled it. Loads of post in the Samsung forums. Lovely TV though apart from the that. Apps are fast, PS4 plays beautifully and 4k playbacks are exceptional. Just a shame that Samsung haven't supported a 2016 set into 2018.

Yeah its under £700, but if it lasts 12 months before the bleeding issues occur then it costs £700 per year, so you may as well get a decent more expensive TV on finance for a lot cheaper (per year) if you can't afford one outright.


1000 nits or not, it's a budget 4k TV with some major manufacturing issues

...So what causes all that bleeding to appear after several months - I have this tv and have noticed its really bright but possibly starting to bleed at the bottom although not quite as bad as the pictures above?
my ks7000 is faultless. no problems whatsoever. purchased November 2016

I also have a friend who has had one for over a year without fault. It’s classed as a midrange TV not a budget set. I wouldn’t really call £1500 RRP as cheap

There are probably a handful of returns based on the contents of a thread about BBC iPlayer HLG on the Samsung forum.

That said, apart from not being able to enjoy Blue Planet 2 on iPlayer in 4k HDR, I think it's a great set and I've had no issues. Would easily recommend it. HD broadcast looks good, PS4 blu ray and games look fantastic and Nintendo Switch games look fantastic too (very colourful).

I paid less than that for the 65" KS8000

The rrp is from the end of 2016 when £1300 was a good price for one. Not saying it’s worth that now but I don’t think you’d be getting a better 55 inch TV for under £700.

Well indeed, but no one really pays the RRP here do they? I bought the 65" KS8000 in Jan 17 for £1495

You might not be able to get cheaper for these 'specs', but that doesn't alone make this a good deal, more to a deal than just the price, you have to consider everything such as the product quality itself, the warrranty, and customer service etc.

Especially when there are some clear build quality issues, the back panel falls off and the light bleed worsens over time.

Samsung as always very helpful by suggesting you use some tape to fix the back panel

Just a little caution for people who are considering this, that's all

If it lasts 12 months I think you're in the clear.
I bought this same TV last year (the non-curved version) and I gotta tell you, it's absolutely fantastic for both regular TV and gaming! With game mode on, it has very low latency, and the colors look mindblowing when playing HDR enabled content such as Horizon Zero Dawn etc

Edit: for those looking at this primarily for a gaming TV (like I was), if it helps Digital Foundry themselves referred to this TV as their No.1 mid-budget 4K HDR TV for gaming in 2016, based on several performance criteria. It has since been updated with 2017 models, but hey that's evolution for ya. At this price, you're getting a cracking TV.

Please note this is the flat panel not the curved as in the picture. Uploaded the wrong picture using my iPhone and can’t seem to change it 😜
Ah ok, my bad. I just saw the picture and assumed this was curved so I felt the need to state mine is non-curved all good my man
I have this tv in the living room, never missed a beat so far bought it from Richer last January for £900 iirc. Been a brilliant set, and 4k films look brilliant on it. I bought a 49KS9000 for my gaming room to pair with the One X. I had a lot of light bleed with the first set and returned it to reliant who replaced it straight away. Took the second one as it was much better (although not perfect). It definitely seems that the curved sets seem to suffer from light bleed more than the flat ones. It has small amounts of bleed, but it seems to be based very much around the viewing angle on the curved sets.

That's a good point. It should be mentioned that you will get a small amount of color/light bleed if not viewing the TV head on even with a flat panel (i.e. directly in front of the TV, not to the side). For this reason, it's not quite ideal for a living room situation where you might have multiple family members viewing the TV from different angles. Not a problem for me as this is my gaming TV so it's just me, but yeah, something to keep in mind.

The screen type is VA, which is much better than TN as it has better viewing angles and color reproduction but not quite at the level of IPS which reigns as king in terms of viewing angles and color, but VA has a few advantages over even IPS such as refresh rate and contrast (essential for hdr gaming!). VA is a happy medium between TN and IPS, having the response levels of TN and the visual advantages of IPS, a jack of all trades if you will.
