This one doesn't really have the wow factor either. It's a great TV, but for more wow you would need to get the Samsung Q7.

Ah thank you, probably just saved me wasting alot of money.. Qled is the big jump up then, was quite disappointed at the lack of upscaling on my hisense 4k & the cloudy edges on a black screen. Must check out a Samsung Q7 at one of the stores.

Last years KS series had a few faults, but is technically better than this year's MU series. The Q6 is a recently introduced model and I'd maybe give it a miss unless some good reviews come up.
Nice find, i was almost bought this tv a month ago at £1,500!

John Lewis have price matched for me also, order going in today.
i got john lewis to price match yesterday coming saturday got them to price match the 75 mu7000 @ £1599 too but got the 65 in the end :-D

Wish I had a bigger living room. I would pay that amount for 75 easily
Got JL to price match and order gone in. Thanks op.
I put in a price match for the 55 inch with JL and they matched it so I've just put it in for the 65 inch now. I was gonna order the 55 inch today aswell but if this comes back in going for this I think.....cheers op
Hisense = Nonsense
I don’t get why anyone buy that stuff, this is a great post, heat!
How does this differ to the ks7000?

How does this differ to the ks7000?


This is slightly lower specced.

KS7000 was a full 10 bit panel, this is 8+FRC. KS7000 was rated as being able to achieve 1000 cd/m2, this is 600 cd/m2.
Don't these Samsung's have a remote that you have to talk to rather than real buttons? No button to change hdmi source quickly? This sort of thing potentially puts me off.
Thanks Op. Great Price. Just put in my price match with John Lewis.

It does come with a 'smart' remote, but you get one of these too: 32938623-faXEP.jpg

This tv comes with 2 remotes, the standard old skool remote with buttons and the interactive remote.

Ks7000 or 8000 are potentially better. They have premium uhd panels along with certificate which mu doesn't. Apart from that, if you go for HDR ironically KS is again better choice. Lots of people say that Samsung's Qleds are proper KS replacement and not MU models as market may suggest. I'm very very confused, looking for tv for weeks now and the more time I spend on it the bigger confusion. Unfortunately its almost impossible to get KS now so I price matched MU7000. But after all the research I would rather wait for QLED to go down to £1300

I thought this had a 10 Bit panel. Reviews and specs say it supports HDR10. Is that something else?
'certified ultra HD 4K HDR LED' (as in the title of this thread)
What exactly does that mean?
Is this a true 10 bit panel
Is it an RGBW panel?
Confusion abounds
JL wouldn't price match got declined for me.

Is 5 yr warranty from PRC worth anything? Judging by their reviews good prices but any order with problems becomes a hassle.

That's the thing though, it isn't certified ultra HD. Samsung only certify their QLED TVs as Ultra HD.

It apparently meets the standard of Ultra HD but isn't certified as such.

As you say - mega confusion in this field!!

Have you tried getting Richer Sounds to match? Their warranties are excellent.

I though that tv is ultra when it reaches 1000cd.. ks8000 is around 1500cd I think which makes it amazing comparing to this one which is only 600cd

Hi bigbun

That's frustrating.

What reason did they give?
I have a JS8500 55 inch which I got for £1069 in summer of last year.
Looking at prices now for TVs like this, I got a really good deal.

My info comes from display specifications: displayspecifications.com/en/…b02

As I understand it and I'm not saying for a minute that I do, at TV can be HDR10 without being 10 bit - it just has to reproduce a certain amount of the DCI-P3 colour space (don't ask me how much), and a achieve minimum ratio between peak brightness and black level (again not clear what this is in terms of minimum, but I understand that LED TVS that produce 400cd/m2 or more are capable of achieving this minimum).

This TV apparently complies with those. In terms of colours it does it via FRC to replicate a 10 bit panel's colour gamut. Presumably it's black level is such that a peak brightness of 600cd/m2 is enough to achieve whatever the ratio is.

UHD premium certification requires better contrast ratios with higher minimums:

Standard 1 for LED: More than 1,000 nits (essentially the same as cd/m2) peak brightness and less than 0.05 nits black level. or

Standard 2 for OLED: More than 540 nits brightness and less than 0.0005 nits black level.

A TV must also be capable of producing more than 90 per cent of the DCI P3 color standard.

So can't see this TV being capable of meeting the UHD Premium spec, whatever Samsung might have to say about.

Ah ok.

It's now showing as "in stock": prcdirect.co.uk/tv-…ale


Maybe try for the price match again now? If they are being difficult perhaps add on the £15 charge for deliver within 2 - 3 days, that's still a good price.

Ah yes I shall try again as it wasn't showing in stock yesterday.
Same price at RGB Direct @ £1099 and in stock, if you want to use those for price match.
