Saw this deal... Seems a good one except it curved. I bought it for £969 from JL and liked it - both TV and service from JL

I'm trying to think why those boffins at Samsung would have gone to the trouble of making a whole raft of curved tvs and never realised they were only good for the bin?


The manfacturer's of technology products need to "Titillate" the market constantly to keep you in the loop as revenue fodder or sheep, if you prefer.
They come up with the next supposedly big thing, and then its the marketing and advertising machines job to keep you wanting, wanting, wanting.
It is the same game with most High end tech purchases.
Apple phones are exceptional at making people loyal by social modelling and psy-ops, (Sheeple's phone), they will have a compunction to rant at will about the benefits of a closed, greedy ecosystem that entraps them into Tech slavery, they even call the sales staff Geniuses, so you feel intimidated ...lol
So lets see if you can see a path emerging?
HD TV...That actually only means 720p...sounded like scam...and it was.
next big thing is 6 to 12 months...
True HD...1080i
next big thing in 6 to 12 months
Real HD 1080P....improved picture for the consumer?....erm no.
Curved TV
3D tv....will revolutionise how you watch TV?...did it?
next big thing in 6 to 12 months
4k tv....which wasn't exactly 4k tv
Then proper certified 4k, then shortly after
4k UHD....confused yet
4K HDR,,,,i know that your thinking whats the difference right?...So 8 bit, or 10 bit SIr?
Dolby Atmos enabled
HDR10?
Do you think after all that you are confident of getting the right product at Curry's, Richer sounds or John Lewis Today?
Good luck with that my friend.
Did i mention that if you want to be future proofed to a certain degree, you also need to buy a TV today that will be HLG (High Log Gamma) compliant in order to receive future content from many suppliers including Youtube, BBC, Netflix.
Yes it may come as a software upgrade download, but can they be trusted?

So the answer to your question is that YES, the suppliers would release a product that was a pile of old **** for suckers to buy, it has been happening for as least 40 years that i know of?
KIrby cleaners anyone?
Lancia Cars anyone?
Projection TV?
Amstrad computer?
Laserdisc, Minidisc?

I've got the 49 inch, lovely tv. Massive step up in the smart tv UI from a sony. Picture is great with tweaks
How are these versus the 9000 series
Sound output is more in 9000 but compare for the extra price can you get a sound bar. I thought of getting sound bar from the savings
One thing i know is sound output is more in 9000 but compare for the extra price can you get a sound bar. I thought of getting sound bar from the savings
Saw this today- been waiting for this to come down from John Lewis as you get the 5 year guarantee- ordered
Heat added, not sure if I should get this considering its curved.

Question: the legs do they finish right at the end? I have a TV unit which is 121.5cm and the TV itself is 122.5cm so 1cm short but I am hoping the legs finish before?

Your help would be appreciated!

I've got this since last Oct and must say its absolutely stunning and breathtaking. The best in this range unless you willing to spend double for little bit xtra quality. Worth every single penny.
If only it was flat
"Samsung UE55KS7500 Curved SUHD HDR 1,000 4K Ultra HD Quantum Dot Smart TV"

that's quite a mouthful..... i still want one though, but i just got a 4k samsung so it wont be anytime soon!
Great deal
Curved TV's are for suckers.
It looks like the retailers are trying to bin them all.
Seems as though this TV is available in FLAT at £899.00 now, then for me this makes this TV worth at least £100 less.

I've considered trying to iron one. Or perhaps spray water on the front in the hope that it'll uncurl.
is this 8bit or 10 bit panel on this model

The condition is "as New"
Excellent tv, I got the 43 inch version for the bedroom. It was the only 10bit panel around that size which is ideal for a bedroom. There is a settings setup via AV forums I think, Which will improve the picture setup overall as well.
Not sure about curved but this could be the last chance to grab a 55 inch KS series. Thinking about it. Voted hot anyway

It's annoyed me no end that the 2017 replacement series (MUXXXX) is both inferior quality and more expensive.
Really very tempted, might be buying this weekend. Need to persuade myself and wifey that curved screens are OK. Heat for a good price.

If you're going to hang your TV on the wall, then the only applicable word is "stupid". Reflections are annoying as they move around more as you move your head than with a flat screen. They are a solution looking for a problem, and are marketed to show-offs who use them to prove that they have a more modern TV than their neighbours. Like any fashion, the downside of that is that they will rapidly date.
got to wait till price will be like 399. but i really nees that tv!

​i like to know too. same situation.
thanks in advance..
came across below information on internet.

 The panel sits on two chrome feet, that Samsung calls a ‘branch’ stand. These slot into place at either end without the need for screws, in case you're wondering why there are none in the box. The feet are 110cm apart, which means you’ll need a fairly wide surface to position the KS7500 on and obviously it can’t be swivelled. However you do have the option to wall mount the KS7500 using standard 400 x 400 VESA mounts and included spacers.
means feet are in fixed position.

/\ So true !

I'm still using a Panasonic 1080p plasma, but I'm reluctant to upgrade to a 4k OLED until things settle a little (much as they did once 1080p became established as the norm).

Excellent posting, snipped. Just one thing: 1080i is not better than 720p, for several reasons. You have to limit vertical resolution with interlacing, or you will get flickering on sharp horizontal edges on cathode ray tubes. It is harder to compress interlaced than progressive signals, so for a given bit rate you will have more artifacts (a worse picture). And it causes problems with moving pictures when shown on progressive displays (in practice, everything except cathode ray tubes). Interlacing is a clever 1930s technology to overcome a problem with low frame rates on cathode ray tubes (large area flicker). It has no place in the digital world, but certain commercial interests forced its death to be postponed. A bigger number must be better, right? Marketing again!

Wait for a TV that can truly display high dynamic range pictures, i.e. one that is capable of extremely high brightnesses, extremely dark blacks, and has enough bits of processing to be able to display those and everything in between.

Well I was not looking for a curved TV but wanted a KS series so went to have a look. I now own one. I think I can live with the curve. Thanks for the deal. Also I was told there are 400 in stock at the moment. The York store also had 2 new 55 KS8000 but they were £1300.

The legs are quite annoying honestly. They finish about 8cm before the corner and are about 92cm between them. That's on the 49 inch
