so tempting.... looks like the best 49inch (screen quality) that you can get out there, I am not sold on the Samsung QE49Q7FAM, more expensive and the known motion issues/overdone colours put me off... Heat added! But will the price go down even more in the upcoming days?

Price must go down in coming days. Is it trusted site?. Anybody please share your experiene with this site.

'Real HDR10' isn't a very useful description. HDR ability is a range and will be for the forseeable future.

This is considered a good entry level model for HDR because it's got a local dimming system good enough to start allowing some of the larger highlights to be increased in brightness without affecting the brightness of the rest of the picture.

I got the co-op deal for the 55" version with a soundbar and sub a week or so ago. I am very impressed with it. Worth bearing in mind though is that it is at its best directly head-on. If you move too far off axis the contrast degrades somewhat...still acceptable for normal viewing in my view, but if I'm watching a movie I want to be in the sweet zone...nearer the axis. Something to do with the VA panel technology it uses...apparently...I'm no expert. Also a surprise to me is the lack of program guide for the satellite tuner...we only use freesat...it found about 700 channels which I need to make a favourites list from. I'm still using out humax freesat tuner for simplicity for the family at the moment. Pleasant surprises included dual satellite inputs and the ability to connect a hard drive to record programs from the second tuner. Can't get free view here so can't comment on that. I concentrated all my (quick...so as not no miss the deal) research on picture quality and motion handling and I'm not disappointed. Paid £1070 for the 55" version with the Sony HT-CT290 sound bar and sub....which I have only just received because it went out of stock initially. It's no Bose but it's OK, standard sound from the TV is pretty good for normal use as it has decent speakers because it's not wafer thin and can accommodate bass porting. It's not wafer thin due to the zoned back lighting requiring a bit of depth...which is more important to me. There aren't that many zones but it's fairly effective and I'm not in the market for spending the extra required for more zones.
Added note: doesn't have dolby vision....not sure how bad that is...suppose it depends on the uptake in the future.
Added note 2: havent been able to try the soundbar with a high quality audio feed yet...just from satellite broadcast...streamed audio over bluetooth which is OK.

Did you get this with the co-op deal ? Remember to check your membership points , I had £50 cash back from buying this tv

People keep posting about av forums on here saying that such and such TV is good / bad / wonderful / cr*p for gaming but so far no one has posted any direct links to specific threads or posts - usually just a general link to the forum or not even that.

Getting a bit fed up with this vagueness - just saying.

This or UE49KS9000 for £730?

So full array local dimming means the LEDs at the back are pointing right at you. When it comes to bright scenes that may make for uncomfortable viewing, especially with large screens in a dark room
Edge lit means you are never looking directly at the light source, which may make for more comfortable viewing.

I think TVs are (strangely) an emotive subject on here. People have their own preferences, brand loyalties and axes to grind and are happy to push their point of view. In my opinion it's best to Google for external reviews and youtube reviews. When I was considering one of these there was a user who was adamant you would be stupid to buy this over a Samsung (I think) OLED for £600 more. However subsequent posters who had that model had issues with it. He defended the model to the hilt suggesting you had to turn off all of the motion features to overcome it and this is how a film should be watched anyway. As the director intended. Not for me. I prefer to overcome the limitations of the limitations of the outdated format where possible.
So it's all down to personal preference. There are TVs that do everything well, but I can't afford them, so I set my own priorities and choose on that basis

Well said.

I almost bought the £399 Samsung last night but some people posted that someone on av forums said it was no good for games... so off I went looking for such a post. Couldn't find it. By the time I realised that no such post existed the deal had ended. In hindsight, that TV was ideal as it was in the price bracket I am happy to pay for a TV for a few/several years until OLED's are a realistic price.

So what you say chimes very much with me and it is good advice, I suspect, for the majority of people on hotukdeals looking for a good deal for a TV.

Richer sounds have just price matched that offer at £1049 for me, including the sound bar, so I'm extremely happy....

Neither is ultra or premium or any of the other terms the manufacturers choose to use. Tbh I don't think they even use the term real, but for reasons of laziness I did. Anyone that looks anywhere else but here for advice on what "4k hdr" tv to buy will so what a complete cluster fuck that it is.

Netflix works well...the TV menu system has speeded up a lot since the firmware upgrade...it was buggy and slow before....it seems to work just fine now, I haven't experienced any major lags. But this is subjective....There's always a delay of some sort...it just depends what you are expecting and find acceptable. If there hadn't been a firmware update that had fixed the issues I'd have considered if I should return it or if, for the money, it is good value for the display alone and continue to use external boxes to feed it pictures.
Unfortunately Virgin Media stuck a spade through my BT line the other day so streaming tests have come to a halt for the moment, so I can't do any specific testing for you...as far as I remember there was the usual initial loading delay but once you are in its fine. I did however try some 4k streaming to put it through its paces and try out some settings...pretty astounding...really happy with the motion handling in 4k too.

One point I forgot to make...BBC iPlayer...it must use a browser because launching iPlayer just gave me a welcome to BT message and hung the TV (before the firmware upgrade...don't know what would have happened after it). The fix was to change the settings on the BT Home hub to stop it from intercepting new devices' connections to the Internet and showing is own welcome/setup page instead of the page requested. I think it was called Smart Setup....just turn the feature off on the router and it's fine.

Just seen the co op deal..dammit. any chance that will get beat on black Friday? I doubt it.

Some of the TV comments on here show a bit of a lack of understanding of how an LCD works, but this one is so silly it made me laugh out loud. It's surely got to be a wind up.

But in case it's not:

Edge lit LCDs are arranged around a plate (the light guide) which reflects the light 90° so that it's also travelling directly towards the viewer. Light from both types then passes through a layer called a diffuser whose purpose it is to make the light even across the screen. At that point they're identical.

This is all before the light goes through the LCD, colour filters, polarisers etc. to actually modify it to form the picture.

A follow up to this.

I emailed Richer Sounds yesterday for a price match and they got back to me at 5.30 saying they would do £1175 including the sound bar. But when I rang up the Belfast store they quoted me £1315?

Surely they can't accept one price match and not another. They lower price is even giving an extra £20 off as per their terms and the Belfast price is adding £20 on because of a delivery charge.

Anything like this ever happen to anyone?

Did you phone a specific store? Or the central telesales? Also, any idea if the warranty is with RS direct, or with Sony? I'm trying to hold out for black Friday, but this is in line with my target price so sorely tempted just to bite the bullet!

I phoned the main telesales number ending in 0093.

There's a 5-year Sony guarantee and a 1-year extension from Richer Sounds.

The soundbar also has its own 6-year warranty.

Is it being delivered or you need to collect from store please? I think I'll call tomorrow and see what's up! Thanks!!;

I paid extra for next day delivery.

I'd rather it cheaper without the sound bar. Think I'll probably try and sell the sound bar for around £150 if I decide to get it.
