This looks like a great starting price for a large Bravia TV...

Even better if you can get a code to work on it too!

Either for new customers...

Or try LXJH4 too, I got it emailed last week might be account specific!

New accounts can get interest free for 12 months. Don't buy if you cant afford it would be sound advice

I think it's only LG doing the RGBW panels.

I hope this is sarcasm. If not, please do some research before commenting. Sony don't make RGBW buddy.

You're missing the comma in the title between certified and HDR. The certification in question is Digital Europe's UHD logo program which has nothing to do with HDR:
digitaleurope.org/Ser…FAQ

You could also drop HDR from the title, as this isn't a TV to go for if HDR is important to you. It doesn't have a local dimming system at all.

And vestel make Sony TVs now

Seriously, I'm looking for a 4k tv for ages here and every time I scroll the comments I read "don't buy this one" ! At this point I know that I have to look for one with HDR, but I there's always someone saying "this is not true hdr"! 42' is enough for me, any opinions for anything bigger than this up to 500 maximum? I'm waiting for black Friday though.

HDR is forwards looking rewrite of some of the picture standards, allowing content to use colours and brightness levels beyond what any TV can produce at the moment. If you want 'true' HDR then come back in ten or twenty years time.

Right now the further up the range you go the more of the improvements you'll see. A bottom of the range 'HDR' TV includes support for the new picture formats but only reproduces them using the same old capabilities.

At the level of this model you're starting to see the first bits of hardware that have no use in non-HDR content, in this case a wider colour gamut. It's relatively minor, but a decent value added feature to tempt people to go for this model instead of the next one down.

Anyone wanting significant HDR improvements needs to be looking further up the range though, it's currently an expensive technology on the display side.

At sub-£500 I wouldn't worry about HDR, focus on general picture quality.

No, but do you NEED 10bit? The fact that you're asking if a £630 tv has it suggests that you don't actually know what it is and as such, you may not really care? For what it's worth, I don't know if I need it either as I too don't actually know what the difference between 10bit and 8+FRC i???

it was so much easier in the CRT days!!!!

Lol... Just Ignore them... People who will spend 2000 on an oled 65" just won't understand the value in a £500 4k hdr. Just make sure it's not LG RGBW panel, and try get 8bit+FRC as 10bit just isn't gonna happen on that budget.
You will love your new TV, and realise all of the stress was for nothing..

1024 brightness steps instead of 256 in each subpixel, both over the same brightness range (i.e. smaller differences between shades).

In practice there's very little difference. 10-bit in a perfect world is better at avoiding banding (visible steps between similar colours) but there are other things that affect that as well. In reality it's just an implementation detail for the manufacturer to worry about and not something with a big enough impact that it's affect can be seen between TVs.

Plus we're dealing with smaller pixels on these 4K TVs so dithering (of which FRC is one sort) is often below the threshold of visibility, making them identical even in the perfect world. We're talking about four pixels of very similar colour in the same space where out Full HD TVs previously had 3 subpixels of completely different colours (red, green and blue).

You may have missed my point

I have been put off getting a new tv for the time being. What I find more amusing is the fact I need an eye test and probably glasses. I can't see the thing properly anyway!

I'm the same, you've got people constantly on here saying it's not this, it's not that. Best thing to do is go to Currys and have a look. If you like the quality of the picture then buy it.

Question: how does this model measure up against the Samsung UE49MU6400?
