OMG amazing deal, what's the catch?

To be fair, it has been a bit cheaper in the past but cheapest I can find at the moment and it does seem to receive better reviews than the equivalent 2020 Samsung models (TU etc).

Listed as one of the best (if not the best) 55" tvs currently on the market for under £700 on avforums.

If I had seen this a fortnight ago I would have bought it instead of my Sony FX9005 (better tv but more expensive).
How much has the ru8000 been previously? I'm not sure I want to know!
This model gets worse and worse every year... started with the KS7000 being so amazing for the money. They then did the MU, the NU and the RU.... they keep getting worse and worse :/ You could get that Sony with the FALD for not too much more, it's worth paying the extra, and it's actually bright for HDR unlike this.

I think about £480 ish. I'd never used Very so actually did the new customer sign up for credit thing which meant it cost me £501 inc delivery. I intend to pay it off in one go anyway so was worth it for the extra 10% off.
240Hz motion rate? I did not think that they made TV's with this fast a motion rate? I thought that 120Hz was the best you could get currently.

Presumably this 240Hz is great for sports like football or F1 to eliminate judder?
This or the Panasonic gx800?

The 55" KS7000 was £1499 at launch. This was £1,099.

That's why people think the models keep getting worse. They move the goal posts. Better to judge on price - ie. what you get for the same amount of money year on year than model number.

This year's Q80T is £1,599 and the Q70T is £1,299.

Just think about it - the 7000 and 8000s used to be at the higher end, but now 7000 is their most basic model.

I have the GX800. It hs Dolby Vision and Atmos. I'm blown away with the picture quality on this.
Been looking for a new TV and am tempted by this with what people are saying on here. I am not really that knowledgeable when it comes to these. Is the lack of Dolby Vision and Atmos a big thing?

Oh , was going to buy the Samsung until you mentioned yours !
Now I’m in two minds what to get.
If Panasonic they do a 58” which is more the size I was looking for, 65” is slightly to big for our lounge .

Not interested in 4k. Not bothered about smart functions. Would like a nice big screen with terrific sound that doesn't need a sound bar. Any advice?

Samsung always double the motion rate in their promotional specs. A motion rate of 240 means 120hz, a motion rate of 120 means 60hz.

Philips do an OLED TV that comes with a highly tuned sound system. It's massively overpriced though.

Otherwise, no TV's will give you terrific sound without a soundbar or surround system.

Atmos is only required if you have an Atmos compatible surround sound system. Dolby Vision can be great, but there isn't much content available. Most HDR content is standard HDR10.

There's quite a bit of Dolby Vision programming on Netflix. I upgraded my subscription when I got my new Panny and it was well worth it..
Incredible tv for price, i have the 55Q60 qled and i couldn't tell the difference between the two.

Can you pay the first payment in full?
Is this 120hz?

Panasonic all the way!
If anyone else has this (I have the 65" version) and can notice a visible delay in backlight dimming when moving from dark to light scenes, please let me know if I'm going crazy or not..

My advice is if you get a soundbar that can be controlled with your TV remote (HDMI ARC) then you don't notice you are using it but the sound is utterly transformed.

Freeze yourself and get thawed out in the future when technology has advanced a lot. Big screen means small speakers.

Good deal on a really solid TV
My Sammy NU8000 has been fantastic to be fair. Got a deal off here back in the day. Had zero issues. 55 was the sweet spot for me (now I want 65 ). With so much programming 4K now, I wouldn't go back to my 1080 32 inch box.
