Hi Guys, was looking for a TV and came across this model, it seems good for the price and has 100 reviews on google with a 4.8/5 overall.
In order to get it for this price I had to use the code CBT60 which gives you 60 off a spend on tvs above 600.


I paid 3.99 delivery also for my slot but it seemed on the site you could get some for free?


Hope this helps somebody

When I look for TV's, I ignore the HDR wording completely. Having a 10bit screen is the most important part. That allows the TV to display enough colours to properly show HDR, so any TV that has a 10bit panel will pretty certain to have decent HDR. The other factor is brightness, but again, I don't know of any 10bit TV's which aren't bright enough for proper HDR.

Finding out if a TV has a 10bit panel can be a little tricky, some manufacturer's try to hide that information because it is so telling.

You're right to be wary of the wording, a lot of TV's have the chip in them that will process the HDR signal, but don't have a good enough panel to display it's output.

If you want a foolproof way of looking, it's very unlikely any TV that doesn't have the UltraHD Premium badge will have a 10bit screen. Sony might be the only exception, because they don't use the standard.

Probably next month and beyond is when TV's are going to be at their best price this year, if they follow the same trend as last year. So if you can hold off for a month or so, it will probably pay off.

Cue the anti-curved comments

I have the curved and was always against it, however I bought one and it looks pretty good, especially in corners

Yeah, i originally looked at the non curved model of this but it worked out curved was cheaper with the code that i was going to spend on the normal

Does "upscaling High Dynamic Range (HDR)" mean it is not fully HDR?

You appear to get another 5% discount on all samsung coop tvs if your a member if not it's a £1 to join and that takes this to under £600 and you may be able to get another 2% quidco

Absolutely don't get this if you actually care about HDR. This is no HDR TV. HDR content will look very similar to SDR because it doesn't get bright, and does not have a wide enough colour-gamut, also to mention that this is a 8-bit panel without even any dithering.

With Samsung TV's you need to be looking at the Q7 range and above this year, for TV's with a 10 bit panel and 'proper' HDR.

Great tv and don't really realise its curved anymore.

this Samsung is far superior to the unresponsive Sony HD TV I got a few months after. drives me bad with no reaction to the remote some times when you click on menu / apps etc
Wish Id just got another Samsung

Do all LED tvs suffer from DSE ?

as for ULTRA HD its all a bit of a nonsense presently

There's not many channels that are even HD so unless you want to pay £20-30 a go to watch a limited amount of issued 4k UHD movies its pretty pointless

Just moved house and my 6 year old 40 inch Samsung looks a little small in our living room, so it might get demoted to bedroom tv. Keep looking at new 4k tv's but think I'll hold off until they hit the magic £10/inch mark (£550) for a decent branded one. If that's later this year in the sales then I'll bite, but if not then I'll wait!

Ultra HD makes a lot more sense if your a gamer rather than a tv viewer.

Thanks, I am also looking for a new TV and found your comment very helpful. No rush also so will hold out a month or so and purchase a better tv (only 10bit panel) ha

Was funny in 2014

I bought a similar spec, similar price 55" LED TV on the basis that a good brand 4K would have to be better than my 10 year old faithful - WRONG! - these new TV's may be attractive and affordable but the picture and sound are truly dire.
The retailer allowed me to swap it and, with a more informed view of what to look for (don't trust the in-store demo but watch real TV) and I saw that all LED TVs struggled to achieve any kind of decent picture even in the £2,000 bracket.
In the end I bought an OLED TV, which start at £1,400 so are more expensive and I couldn't really afford it but I watch so much TV that I figured it a worthy investment... It has proved to be the best electronic thing I've ever bought. The new iPhone X from Apple uses OLED so, if you are considering getting that then don't consider getting anything less than OLED for your TV!

I don't think we'll be that lucky. Best price for that spec last year was about £899. You might get a 49" on a very good day for that budget.

I'm pleased for you, but I don't do bravias any more. After the last two died early and Sony neutered their smart functions within six months of purchasing.
