Posted 23rd Nov 2018
Been looking for a TV for gaming as I play a lot of competitive. Monitor market is diabolical and prices are stupid. Rather get a TV that's better than monitor (playing lottery with panels).

Great TV for gaming! Has low input lag in 1080p, 4K modes. 120Hz in 1080p/1440p. Great picture quality.

I phoned John Lewis they will not price match with Co Op and wouldn't match that deal so you might want to think about changing your vote.

perhaps don't jump to conclusions
John Lewis price matched the RGB Direct deal for £699 for me

Take a look at this, £689 inc 6 yr warranty. As someone who’s spent the day trawling for the best prices UE55NU8000, I feel that this is it.

It seems the week long run up has all but killed off crazy fire sales... so today has been somewhat of a damp squib. Of course there’s Cyber Monday due. But Richer Sounds will honour price drops up to 7 days after purchase.

the only thing I don't like is that you have to pay £29 fee even though the interest itself is free

I tried the RTings settings for the movie mode, it wasn't to my liking the skin tones looked a bit yellowy so I put it back to factory settings. But each to their own it all really depends on the environment the telly is in.

Very true, I adjusted the backlighting higher, used a tiny bit of sharpness, and changed colour temperature from warm to standard ( I think thats where the yellow tinge comes from) hope your enjoying your TV 😁

I think you're right the yellow comes from the colour temperature when it is set to "warm 2". I don't know enough to start fiddling with settings there's that many settings you can alter I don't know what half of them do . Yeah it's a great telly and I have no regrets with it at all.

Why won’t they price match Co-op out of interest?
chrisbatts23/11/2018 23:27

They didn't explain but I assume it's because it's only Co-op's online division that sell TV's and they only price match brick and mortar stores. Second guy I spoke to wouldn't price match RGB either till I told them that people had got price matches from there already. It seems to be really random if you get a price match with JL unless it's someone big like Currys etc.

I’ve got the price match from RGB. Might as well try the Co-op too. Nice one.

I got the RGB price match but they wanted me to buy it there and then wouldn't give me a quote via email or anything. It really does depend who you bump into on the phone. I'll probably use the RGB price match tomorrow just having another go at trying to see the Sony X9005 to see what all the fuss is about all TV's looked awful in JL in High Wycombe.

Go with this Samsung TV. SONY 2018 models aren't that great. Even for input lag you would think Sony would be better hence the PlayStation division but Samsung best them to it.

thanks for reply mate

not gaming really bar the odd bit of fifa on ps4 - mostly sky/netflix

do you think the UE55NU7100 is good enough or is it worth the extra for NU8000/8070?

Both the Nu8000 and Nu7100 are great TV's. Their panels are great and good for gaming too.

HDR is better on the NU8000, better panel and has 120Hz support in 1080p/1440p for 55". Kind of future proof gaming, who knows next gen consoles might support 120Hz?

Budget wise go with NU7100. However I'd defo pick the NU8000
I got Richer Sounds to price match RGB they also beat it by £10 to bring it inline with co-op. Even though they wouldn’t price match co-op due to their one year warranty compared to RS 6 years. I called a local RS store as Tekesales wasn’t too helpful.
Nu8000 for gameing
