Just bought this from RS courtesy of the info on the RGB direct post.
Excuse my ignorance!! Is this worth the extra over the hisense 55u7a? Any advice appreciated!

This Samsung TV was for £999 on Boxing day sales, this is the 2017 model and due to 2018 model released and fifa world cup soon approaching, this model is on sale. There have been good reviews on you tube Re: this TV. For £639 i would go for this model than Hisense, as the picture quality has the edge.
...but no Dolby Vision.
Looking for a 49-50 under 800. Any recommendations. Seems a bad time to buy in the midst of all the 4k rgbw hdr 10 etc confusion.
Hi guys I got this just over a week ago would RS reduce the price to this I paid 720

I would agree with you on that, but in the Samsung's defence the limited dimming zones would result in even more issues as it struggles to output HDR and also the black letter box bars that feature on most movies will defo take a big hit during HDR resulting in greying of the black bars to be more apparent, on the other hand the low light nits this tv produces may gain an image hike from dynamic meta data as it wouldn't need to have the backlight maxed out on every scene as long as it favours shadow detail over highlight detail in which will require a high light output that will destroy the deep blacks, Samsung announced awhile back that 2017 models will get HDR10+ which uses dynamic meta data like Dolby Vision but never the less the image of the Samsung is great for the price with a very low input lag for gaming and basic HDR.

True! Its like buying a pc, the improving technology never stops.
Called RS and after they called RGB to clarify the warranty (the product page says free 5 years but then in the basket it tries to make you pay extra), they price matched at £639! Great tv for that price!

Now is the buying window for 2017 models going EOL.

The discounts have been going on for a few week and some of the better popular sets are already sold old.

A lot of the 2018 models will be no better than the current crop and a lot more expensive.

If you have not identified where you will be getting HDR stuff and how much you will be watching then a current TV will be fine for the next 5 years and at a lower price point than your £800 a more capable HDR .set will go over £900

you get better value at 55"-58"
Is it worth paying a little more for the 8000 or not really?

The only differences I can see are:

* Local dimming Vs edge dimming
* Better judder/motion
* Better contrast and brightness
* Not sure if the 7000 comes with the additional box for the wires, but the 8000 definitely does

All depends on your budget. If you can stretch it to buy the 8000 then why not.
Personally I couldn't justify paying that amount for a TV. Technology is always changing and I found the 7000 is future proof enough without spending more.

I think if you’re going to spend more then look at the QLED or stretch a bit further and LG OLED B7. But I went for this MU7000 it’s arriving on Thursdays! Can’t wait!
@Sunny_89@zrahim

Thanks both I think you're right, my budget is about £700 so I think the 7000 should be fine for what I need, definitely better than the 7 year old TV I've got now, and with technology moving so fast it's not worth spending a fortune.

There's always one a little better for a little more which makes choosing hard, think I'll resist and stick to my budget!

@Sunny_89 how are you finding yours so far?

@zrahim Let me know what you think when it arrives, hope it's good!

I haven't ordered mine yet (will do today) but I've been keeping an eye on the price since boxing day. This is the first time it's dropped to £699 or lower since then.
Youll only see a difference between this and a QLED if you have them on side by side.
Just ordered from JL on a price match. Cannot wait. Last Samsun tv was from JL and was about 6 years ago now... how the time flies.
Technology might look like its moving fast but the reality its not.

when did 4k UHD start and how much 4k stuff is there with adequate bit rates.

HDR sets can take the input but cant do much with it unless you are spending a lot more.(cheaper sets best turned off)

streaming can be added to an existing set for a few £.

unless you are also upgrading sources and sitting close its a brighter picture and bigger set giving the perceived improvements on regular FHD stuff.

The biggest change is 55-65 are now cheap.

the cost to change needs to consider where you will be getting the UHD and HDR stuff to view and if you need to buy equipment or pay for services that adds to the upgrade costs from a more basic set.
Got mine today at richer sounds they priced RGB for £649.99

The code still works for me..
Strange I've tried it again and it does seem to work.

Not sure why they have removed it from the actual listing though. It was in red bold writing and they have since removed that
It may be to stop RS price matching and taking all the sales...
Used this yesterday to get Richer Sounds to price match, picking up today. Thank you OP.
