Massive 75" 4K UHD TV. Having read some reviews online, it appears to be highly recommended. The offer in CostCo stores goes live Monday 29 Jan.
The TV comes with a 5 Year warranty, and given Costco's exceptional service, that should be helpful.

Although I have some knowledge about TVs and what to look for, it would be grateful to see what others with more knowledge think about this TV at sub £2k. I was also thinking of the LG 65 inch OLED but having read about screen burn, am now not sure if I should select that option.

It’s only £10 to go to the cinema! Same thing really!
I believe this 75" model is IPS, unlike the smaller sizes, so not ideal for those looking for a home cinema experience with low lighting.

I wouldn't let screen burn put you off for normal use, it's only an issue if you regularly leave the same content on the TV for hours. 75" is substantially larger than 65" though.

Oh no you didn't!!!

Silly answers deserve silly comments, it pantomime season again.
I’ve been looking at the 55” version of this for a while now. Been around £900.... anyone know if they’re any good? Thanks in advance....

Cinema has an Inferior image these days due to the advances in tv tech.

The video looks washed out compared to what you can watch at home. Cinemas run at about 48 nit brightness whereas your tv's now run at 500 up to 2000nits.

Last time I went I paid nearly £60 for family (with popcorn), youngest fell unwell (sick in toilets), watched 40 mins of adverts, only first 10 mins of film before having to leave, and the greedy cinema wouldn't offer a refund or alternate bookings for our tickets... Would much rather watch films at home. If only I could justify this expense just after Christmas.. Curry's had a 75" Samsung for £1400 over Christmas as well, hopefully big huge screens will keep dropping...

You would be crazy to buy a tv from currys, the crap I'm going through with them and my tv. Shop elsewhere!
Bought the 65” version of this a few weeks ago, brilliant TV. Spent too long reading the over complicated comments on here before I bought one.

Why would the cinema refund you for tickets? You allow your kid to each popcorn and drink fizzy drinks maybe even chocolate, then the poor kid feels ill. Why is this the responsibility of the cinema?

If theirs a problem with the showing or something in their control they will normally offer a replacement ticket or refund. The last time I went they switched the lights on and started cleaning before the end credits and clip had finished. The apologised and gave free tickets and vouchers for food and drink.

I have to disagree, the image and audio from my local IMAX is excellent.

Well the youngest didn't actually touch his sweets. But I think we'll agree to disagree on this. For me a gesture of good will due to unforseen circumstances would be good customer service and encourage repeat visits. I never asked for a refund, but if we could watch the film on another showing.

The only issue, is they can not re-sell the seats you booked. It's the same if someone doesn't show up for a film they have paid for. They can't re-sell those tickets, if they refunded everyone when it's not their fault, they would soon be closing the doors and not re-opening.

How does IPS make it not ideal for low light home cinema? I'll pretty much be just watching movies and games in the dark so this puts me off. Also I might have a Windows pc on it so I bet I'll have issues with the desktop burning in if I browse for a while.

I get what you are saying, it wasn't a full cinema, far from it but agree that is irrelevant to the argument. But if people feel ripped off or unfairly treated they will also stop going and again cinemas would soon be closing doors. I won't be going back to that cinema in a hurry.

You can usually find a £700-800 65" under various assorted brands that Vestel either own or manufacturer for (Toshiba, JVC, Hitatchi, Finlux etc.). Toshiba being somewhere in the middle, Vestel licensed the rights to use the Toshiba name after they bought Toshiba's European TV operations a few years ago.

It'll have the usual flaws of a cheap TV of course, but Vestel are so dominant in the budget market because they do a reasonable job for the price.

Contrast for a given screen brightness is determined by a combination of emitted light in darker shades and reflected light. In the dark when there's no light reflected off the screen IPS panels are poorer, giving less contrast and a less lifelike picture.

£1260 from the co-op a few weeks ago, it's so handy having the android operating system.

To be fair, I think DARRUDE's example is a much more reasonable situation to be given a refund/exchange than what you described. Are they obliged to do it if someone's ill and leaves 10 minutes into the film? Of course not, but it would be a decent and reasonable gesture.

I certainly wouldn't expect it in your situation though. Don't all cinemas put lights on once the credits roll? Should we all try and make our way out in complete darkness so you can enjoy your post-credits clip in optimum conditions? And unless the person cleaning was 10 feet tall/standing right by the screen, I can't imagine that disrupted your experience that much.

Yes, you should make your way out quietly in darkness if your leaving before the end. If you don't want to stay until the film has finished thats your choice. If I want to watch the whole of the movie, including any post credit clips, then yes I want to watch that in optimum conditions. Well, that is what I paid for as they are part of the movie. Being asked to stand and move around so they can brush up, is not something I paid for, its also something they should not have been doing.
