Cheapest I can find this tv which is universally well reviewed as mid/low price tv.

No 5 year guarantee, if you want that you'll need to pay £699 at John Lewis.

Also not "true" HDR, 10 bit etc but then what do you expect for this price? I have bought it to go in our family room and as a second set it is fantastic.

Still a cracking TV and I would say far better than the 55"4K LG everyone is snapping up from Curry's for £599. Just read the Which? review on that and they really aren't impressed.

How does this compare to the Hisense H55M3300 which can be had for £476? Is this really worth the extra £140?

I have the 55 inch lg there's nothing wrong with it yep it needs fiddling with but that's it

​This has better sound and picture by far. Frankly if you believe the Which? reviews (and I do because I have been to their testing lab) then Hi-Sense is one to avoid

​Which? were critical of the washed out picture and the sound quality. There are also loads of people who have lip sync issues with it, thankfully it sounds like you don't. I have an LG as my main TV so have nothing against the brand at all.

Do the freeview HD channels look good in this ?

Neighbour has which magazine and yes this is a best buy

The 6400 version can be had for 699 better spec and will probably come down again in the next few weeks, it was as low as 669 last week.

No lip sync issues here I I admit the the sound ain't all that....did they say to avoid this set ? I'm sure there's lots worse out there

considering 50KU6000 was £450 with code at Argos (search on HUKD) a month ago and I said i'll hold out for better deal.. I don't think this is close to a better deal in comparison to the 50inch!

So i'll wait again for a better deal.

Agree that was a great deal but hard to compare this since it is for different size tv and the deal you refer to is no longer available. Is this the best deal ever? No. But is there a better deal out there right now on a TV this size? Until Black Friday I would say no, there isn't.

youll need a soundbar with this

I had both intact I first ordered hisense then I replaced it for Samsung; it's a big step up trust me it's worth it. But if you can get the new version because to me this model is lagging a bit.

super TV and in my opion much better thn the hsense mentioned in this thread. We paid £680 a month ago and are very please. It has a version of HDR which does make a difference - forza on xbox one for example - but has an excellent sdr picture. Very pleased. nearly bought a ks7000 for £1000 as far superior HDR but decided against it as this TV is so good

Cold not 10 bit.

you have over £600+ then just go with 55KS7000

​its about a grand? and has massive judder issues

Tempted to replace my ageing Panasonic G20 for this

Cold not 10 bit.



It DOES have a 10-bit panel but doesn't have a wide colour gamut and can't get bright enough for proper HDR like the KS7000 and above.

If all reviews on here were based on "is there a better deal right now" policy, there would be much more heat given to other posts. Cold if its been lower priced recently.

Why?

Does it not have speakers?

Had to return this TV due to awful lip sync issues and lots of screen judder. Took a video and sent it to Samsung. Even they admitted it wasn't right and endorsed my refund.
