Don't forget the free 4k blu ray player too. Sell it on if you don't use it.

Good price I liked mine until the back started coming away from the tv and the banding on sport
What colour is the bezel? Looks black on PRC but some pics look silver?

Nearly bought the KU6400 yesterday but this seems so much better for the money
Good find OP! Around £250 cheaper than other major retailers, and you get the bluray player on top.

With the new 2017 QLED models that have just been released, I think we may see these 2016 UHD models start to drop in price.

Does anybody know if Currys will price match? I have some gift vouchers, and if they match, I might just bite.
Was about to buy this till i read all the problems that owners have with this set and Samsung refusing to deal with them.

Are you sure yours was the KS8000 , the back issues being reported are from the 7000 series from the research I did.
We have had this TV for 5 months now and it is simply stunning , the back is still firmly in place too , lol. No banding whatsoever on the sports on my set.
Paid £1665 for mine last October (without the free 4k blu ray player)
the.porter

The 4k player isn't free from here pm with jl might be better



DO JL price match PRC as I am sure I've tried this before and they told me that they are an internet based company and not a bricks and mortar store and that although they have a showroom , this was not classed as a shop and was operated by a sister company or something iirc (it was a good while ago mind)
I bought a 65ks8000 from JL about a month ago for £1799.99 with the free 4k bluray player.

found nothing to complain about, love it.

Oh yes definitely the 8000 I paid £1800 from jl and was returned due to the faults stated, banding was horrific on football ,I now have the oled 65e6 and it's perfect but double the price

Make sure you are reading reviews from the KS8000 , not the 6/7000 series as they are completely different in their build and seem to be the ones riddled with problems.
The KS8000 has great build quality , no issues whatsoever with mine and I've owned since end of October '16.

You never know with jl they change like the wind depends who the operative is and what mood she he is in
Thanks, jagriat. This is even cheaper than the Samsung 7000 - sans Blu-Ray player - at competitors' sites. And they can deliver TODAY, which is of course awesome.

To those who say this doesn't come with the free Blu-Ray player, scroll down to the package deals.

Randomly, ditto.

Second one was perfect.
Firstly, thanks OP.

Secondly..."One such program, dubbed "Weeping Angel," allowed spies to turn a regular Samsung smart TV into a listening device."

Thirdly, get an OLED tv instead.

​ha ha stupidest comment i have heard yet. TV owners giving their opinion on TVs they own. yeah let's not listen to them.
If it helps anyone, just got Richer Sounds to price match, although in store only.

I could use PRC and get 3.8% quidco as well but I like the convenience of the local store

Nice one OP! This is smoking and now at my price point which I never thought it would get to with a 4K player thrown in! Only thing stopping me is that I've seen the Samsung QE65Q7F............ My TV is wall mounted and the HDMI cables are all in the wall don't support 4K so it means a load of hassle getting a new HDMI cable in whereas the Samsung QE65Q7F comes with a separate box and a thin connection cable which looks like a thick fishing line but it's gonna be another year until this years model is at it's best prices! Arggggggggggggg

Surprised we've not anyone saying you can get a 65" TV from ASDA for like £49.99 and it's the same quality! Trolls go to town on expensive TV's on hear but you definitely get what you pay for!

Ah - excellent.

But damn, my registered card is expired and takes 24hrs to activate my newly added one. Can I wait that long lol
nice, only £50 more than I paid for my 7000, which has been a solid performer since I got it end of last year. I read all these issues but I guess I must have been lucky cos the back is fine, no bleed or judder. Just a spanking good picture, highlight was horizon on pspro. But everything looks great, well except sd at about 3m from the tv, that doesn't look so great
What are PRC Direct like as a company?, cant say I've come across them.

Did RS price match include the blu ray player?
This tv is stunning. If you are attempting to Google reviews you might as well put in KS9000 as most 8000 reviews are from non UK and referring to the 7000 series which is badged the 8000.

Yes. They have it up for £1849 and couldn't believe the PRC offer. Literally just come out of Sheffield shop from ordering.

I initially phoned their telesales but they couldn't match it but said they could instire. Spoke to the manager and he ok'd it so I rushed over to place the order.

Now stupidly realisedI bet they could have sorted payment over the phone and saved myself an hours round trip! Oh well.

Might explain the poor reviews , Uk version of the KS8000 has been perfect for me for the last 5 months and its on around 50 hours + a week with a BT 4k box.

If they still got the same 'showroom' it's sat directly behind Heavies on the Hill which is a clothes shop for fat fxxks down Hilldene, call me petty but it's just left a negative impression on me for life (_;)
In case I had a return problem think I would prefer to deal with a bigger shop like rs or Costco.
