TV is £998 but discount code BF60 brings it down to £938.

Also don't forget to use quidco ( I forgot ☹️), could be another 2% back.

Spent a bit of time looking at 4k TVs recently and this is the best 49" TV for £1000. It's a true 10 bit panel with the best blacks I've seen on an LED panel

I agree, it's got consistently good reviews. I was waiting to drop sub 900 however at this price I couldn't resist any longer.

Not worth going for anything less than the 93 model as anything less will not be supported next year. Phony ripping people off .

....except the 93 model doesn't come in 49 inches.

So it will be worth it for that reason alone imo.

What do you mean by saying "by next year won't be supported"?

I think he is referring to Dolby vision hdr10 or hlg. Still this is the best picture quality 49er at this time. I wonder what cyber Monday will bring.

Cheers will update the description.

ahhh - i feel slightly guilty about spending so much on a tv when my current one is serviceable - but i've taken the plunge - in theory this should be excellent for a long time - might be worth going through topcashback too as it's taken an extra £46 off my purchase reducing a tv which was rated 5 stars by what hi fi this year at £1500 to under £900

i've been looking at tv reviews for a good amount of time - and have generally been torn between this and the xe80 series, which is a good amount cheaper, but not as good HDR and different backlighting

hopefully won't regret the purchase

I'm in the same boat. I have a lovely LG 40 inch atm, but still want this TV so bad.

I guess the Dolby Vision thing is annoying, but this is my price point so I doubt it makes a hell of a difference to me.

Is there a chance this TV could be obsolete if dolby vision becomes the broadcast standard? Still find this whole hdr/dolby vision debate a little confusing. I have read reviews and before the dolby vision subject got mentioned I was more than willing to take the plunge at £1000 ish. However now I think paying a premium to get a good 10 bit panel etc, I don't want to feel like I am jumping the gun to get on the 4k bandwagon before the format itself is considered mainstream ie full sky interface.

The way I understand Dolby Vision is that it's extra data in the video stream that tells the TV how to display the HDR content (Colour depth and brightness etc..).
If the TV doesn't support Dolby Vision then the TV itself works out this information.
Dolby Vision gives the content creators control on how their HDR is displayed on your TV.

Thanks for you reply, from my initial research comparisons were made to format wars between beta max and VHS etc what seems to be irrelevant now upon reading more. So basically dolby vision will provide an enhanced picture providing the panel it is viewed on has it enabled. I have a receiver and speaker set up and when I bought that dolby atmos was appearing on the market and the same questions were asked to myself, do I need it, will I be missing out without it etc. I came to the conclusion that it was OTT for a living room set up and I have never thought about it since as it did not serve my needs. I can accommodate a maximum of 49" screen so an oled is out of the question so dismissed those straight away. I guess it's a case of bang per buck, it would be great to have the dolby vision but the pricepoint does not seem to qualify. Joe public would probably be happy with a £300-£400 50" from argos. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

Free sound bar at currys

I got this previously for £1024 with the free soundbar and £50 cashbook to spend at Co op. I called them today and they refunded the difference which is only £26 so if anyone bought this from co-op previously, call them and they should be able to refund the difference. Unfortunately, they wouldn't apply the refund with the BF60 code though.

Exact same scenario for me. Essentially at this size and price point I am more than happy without Dolby Vision. Samsung and Panasonic havent even confirmed tgey are adopting that format.

Thats ridiculous. You may as well put off buying TVs altogether because 8K is coming. All TV's are a rip off on this basis.

Thanks for the post - I ordered from JL yesterday at £999 and got them to price match today, just got a confirmation for a refund. Heat added!!!

Bought today from currys WITH the soundbar for £999. Apparently the sound bar offer had expired since the price had dropped for black friday but they failed to remove the poster. Makes this a bargain in my eyes. Sell the sound bar for £120 hopefully on eBay and the TV becomes sub £900. Just about to set it up hopes it delivers like all the reviews say it does!

Quick question to any owners, how's the input lag?

I've read it's 32ms, which is high for gaming isn't it?

My current 1080 Sony is 14ms (also a VA panel).

I'll be mainly using it for gaming, PS4 & Xb1X.

Excuse my ignorance.

32 is pretty low for a 4k TV in fairness. I would be happy with that myself.

The processor on this TV will not be able to process dolby vision like the higher end models. Just a note to potential investors in this TV, out of the box HD settings are somewhat blown out and very "noisy". Once all the image processing tools are turned off it becomes a brilliant fluid colourful image. Very pleased with this set. My Xbox one s won't seem to detect that the TV is 4k, any help with this issue would be much appreciated.

my xbox1x detects it ok and ticks all the checklist boxes,i noticed i wasn't getting DD 5.1 via the netflix app i had to dig around in the proper settings to get it working
