My experience of John Lewis and TVs has been going on since beginning of December sent me a used 55nu8000 that was supposed to be new, a used 4K player the day before as well... I’ve ordered another 55nu8000 but I’m worried that it’s going to be another customer return! I think stocks are getting low of 2018 TVs to make way for 2019

That's bad clearly service levels have gone down the pan. If you politely express your dissatisfaction with them they normally compensate you well.

Yes a good will offer of £50 if I return the £170 bundled 4K player
i took the used tv back to store within a hour of getting it, it had finger print marks all over Screen and wasn’t factory sealed.

I just worry that there sending out customer returns now boxed as new as have low stock, as no local stores have stock of the nu8000 as was just going to buy one in the store save the hassle... you shouldn’t have to have that worry when buying a NEW tv from a reputable company specially for that kind of money

I predict this TV will drop price further, i checked the same model sold in Sony official store in China for about ¥6800 which is about £770. so i’m holding off for now...

It won’t, most things in China sell cheaper just look at new iPhones over there for instance, it’s a different exchange rate as well as economy to ours UK is always expensive!
The 2018 TVs are actually going up in price and stock is diminishing by time you finish waiting 2019 TVs be here in couple of months and then huge prices until October time when they drop back again to prices we are seeing now

The OS on this is utter trash and kills the experience of what is a very good LCD panel..

Hardly makes you nostradamus, all last year's tech will drop in price if you wait long enough. Seems to be a balancing act with them running out of stock on this.

Isn't all their stuff cheaper in their China store though?

As an owner of this set, I struggle to see how people find it 'painful'. Sure, it's not lightning fast, but it's still easy enough to get around and far from unbearable.

It's a great set, this is a great price, and fingers crossed JL will price match (ordered a week or two ago from them). Thanks OP.
At this kind of price should we not be looking at LG OLED panels ?

Not really. There are videos on YouTube that tell you what to turn off to make the os faster. Far from an issue.

That’s the choice I made, too close in price

It depends on needs . OLED panels cannot get the peak brightness to achieve stunning HDR but murders any TV for contrast and blacks.

Swings and roundabouts at the minute.

Won't be long until a TV is produced with oled blacks and qled peak HDR brightness.
How's the input lag for people who use it gaming on full HD?
4k is ok but the scaling engine is a bit slow according to a few reviews.
I went for the 65" version of this from Co-op. It's 1399 three atm using a coffee.

i agree the the os on this tv can be slow and some times freezes for a second thats why took mine back for a Samsung tv which is much faster and smother.

I fear you may have missed the best deals already as they usually happen in November. This
may get reduced a little bit in March, if you can find stock.

Once you factor VAT, the price in China is roughly the same as here, and the small difference will be due to logistics and local economics, so £999 is not bad in comparison.

I might be wrong but I think £999 was the best price for this TV during BF but you are right its probably not going to come down much more and with time there is the risk of becoming out of stock - after much deliberation I am close to pulling the trigger on this one although waiting for JL to confirm price match - all things considered one of the best TVs in this price bracket and for me personally screen-burn on OLEDs is far too big a risk and for alot of users it's probably inevitable if they want to enjoy their TV for 5+ years without babysitting it - as a Plasma owner I know what it takes to be careful but OLED is a whole different problem
This or samsung q8dn

Of course it can, the only time it might not is in the peak of the summer daytime watching.

Agreed, I don’t want to babysit a Oled a lot of people will say “it’s never happened to me” but the possibility is very much there at ANY time I rather not worry about watching tv takes away from the enjoyment, il wait for microled to become the standard in good few years as that has all the pluses of Oled and non of the risks, Oled will be old news when that goes mainstream

I think best deal was before black Friday on Co-Op, bundled with the soundbar for little over 1k and possibly some cashback.

I got last year's model on a similar deal and worked out at about £900 for the TV after selling sound bar and It never got cheaper afterwards, afaik. Very happy with it, so you should do well with this too

It could be worth waiting on the off chance you could save £100, but you might no be able to get it. Just depends on how much you want it really and if you're picky with retailers as the main ones will sell out first.
JL have confirmed they will price match
Still overpriced...should be sub £900 for this screen size...
As mentioned above....The OS is fine. I've been using mine for 4-5 months and it does the job. Again as mentioned above stock always gets quite low on these ..or at least they do for the 49inch as was trying to hang on for last years model to be reduced when new one was announced but couldn't get hold of one. If you want one then just get it.
