I've got the 6400 model (same as this but not curved). Great TV imo.

anyone know if this is good for gaming?

Input lag is mesured at 21ms (decent) when put in Game Mode

Worth £140 more than this?...

Curved seems like a useless gimmick.

got it for 599 with John Lewis a month ago almost they price matched with sonic direct at the time. unbelievable picture quality. speakers are poor though.

They 6400 / 6500 have a different panel. I tested the 6000 against the 6400 at Richer Sounds and the difference is night and day.

Definitely not.
What would you rather have, A flat woman or a curvy woman ?
The quality of my life has massively improved since I purchased my curved TV one year ago.

Lol ^

Wanted this until i saw the ks9000 55". If that falls in price to around £1200 i will jump in but don't want to miss this is the the other doesn't drop in price over next few days. Opinions on whether the ks9000 will drop?

Not in the next few days.
Most retailers are giving away the UHD BluRay player and that has kept the price higher.

Absolute Bargain, just bought one!
Have been looking at this nearly a year. Was tempted with the 49" version at £549 (Co-op with code).
But worth £100 more just for the JL 5 YEAR guarantee., and this is 55in !

Richer Sounds has same tv in Boxing Day sale for £749, reduced from £849. I was tempted at that price but now even more so at this price. £100 difference for 1 year extra warranty doesn't work for me

Im about to pull the trigger... anyone think this will go cheaper?

Cheers paperboy2. Hadn't realised the blu ready player was part of the deal, you're right can't see it dropping to £1200. Might just have to get in on this one.

Anyone advise me what is the better tv, this or the Samsung UE55KU6670 on sale for £799 at Currys.

The only difference I can see is the 6670 has a magic remote control and costs £150 more.
That's magic for Currys!

Great for non HDR gamers because of the low input lag

Beware though

The HDR performance is shockingly bad- the set lowers the actual brightness to fake HDR

Also movie buffs AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE

No 24P mode
No 48hz mode
The set plays all films at 60hz
You are going into motion blur and judder city

It's a great panel if you go into with tempered expectations

You say "Avoid like the plague, it's no 24p mode" !!!
You tight git, I don't spend £649 on a telly and expect to watch stuff for 24p !
If things are that hard get yourself down to Poundland, lots of dvds and blue rays down there and only a pound!
You experts!

Jesus Christ man!

24p blue at playback has nothing to do with resolution

It's 24 frames per second

All cinemas play at 24 frames per second

If you put a 4k blu ray in

You want to have 24 fps to get that true cinema experience

This set (also the 6000) force the screen to refresh at 60hz
Or 60 frames per second

Now 24 doesn't equally divide into 60
So you know what that means ?

All films have a slight judder

Samsung really are knobs to leave such an important feature out
If you are buying this tv to watch a few blu rays in 4k

The screen will look great until something pans and you notice a nasty judder effect

I really don't understand a lot of this, like 95% of normal people who buy televisions!

However, if your right and my life's ruined by this "nasty Judder effect" it's going back to John Lewis

Thank you for your report and I hope you have a nice Boxing Day and a happy Juddering free 2017.

I didn't say life ruining- I said it's a deal breaker for film buffs- most people wouldn't even know it has a judder - it's the same reason people wonder why their big screen tv at home doesn't feel as smooth as the cinema

At the beginning of layer cake there is a panning in the drug store scene

If you don't notice it there then you are fine

The judder there is really pronounced

It's inevitable..

Bought one last night, but got to wait till the 2nd for delivery .
5 year guarantee good, sure Currys would charge you at least £150 for that cover !
Not had a curved tv before, can't wait to receive it, and a much bigger size than my current tv.

Edited by: "drsdriver" 26th Dec 2016

tough to choose between this and £50 for the non curved model. Other than the curve feature the specs look the same

Which is why I went for the Hisense 55m7000 - much more bang for your buck.

Most people won't notice/be bothered by motion judder...I certainly do and am!

The Hisense is a fantastic tv, if you're in the market, and I highly recommend it.

The ku6400 & 6500 models are identical apart from the curve.

HI mate, Do you watch much sports on the 55M7000? Does the TV make standard def look any better?

£749 now- I think John Lewis realised they messed up the price match. The price match did seem wrong as the cheapest price elsewhere was £749!

I ordered this yesterday (actually posted it as a deal as well, didnt realise this one was already going!) So I'm hoping there's no dreaded 'price glitch, cancellation blah blah' email. If not, delivery on the 30th

That's made me feel better, bought this last night , now the price has increased. Just goes to show , you have to be quick on these deals.

If you get in quick you can still buy it for £649 if you add the hdmi cable bundle for £34.95 !!

I tried above link,price is £749.00

Can't see the hdmi bundle
