Bought the 49" yesterday and wanted the 55" but my chimney breast isn't big enough

Sold!

Got a model number?

The 49 in this model with 3D is £999, so just need them to stick a few inches on the end and bend it a little bit.

Or you can get the same specs above, but in a Smasung (not Sony) but with the benefit of the curve - same price

Thats actually surprisingly insightful.

Ive only ever sat in the 4K Room at John Lewis and watched Curved.

Perhaps if I watched a 'standard' 4K I would not notice the difference too.

The TV I want in 55 is £1900 and 65 is £2900. My current is 60" so I think Ill really notice losing 5 inches off the total viewing.

If those prices come down massively if I go for the non-curved option, then I think the 65 might be back on the table.

Cheers Dark Souls.

Won't buy anything from currys. All overpriced and had poor customer service.wouldn't price match so got from tesco cheaper in 30 minutes.tv too expensive. Cold

Chimney breast? you're not another one of these people who wall mount TV's high up the wall are you?

Ideally wall mounted TV's should still be at eye level when sitting, i've seen a lot of people mount their TV like it's a painting

Agreed, but I'm out of space. If I'm honest I dont really watch TV that often - it's really for family and friends when they're over and I'm sure they can survive a few hours of neck ache

Well done! Tried to haggle a couple of years ago and you'd think I was asking the staff to end world poverty. They kindly offered me a TV stand for an additional £50...oddly enough it was the same advertised deal in the store. Theres no thinking outside the box in Currys...

Think they are using a priority moments code for £50 off as they told me a few weeks back they could apply that for me to a purchase. Not sure they have any other movement unless they can be seen to price match and even that is a tough gig because they will only match a few stores like AO.com and John Lewis.

Very interesting read.

I have the 55" Samsung curved tv mentioned in this thread, and must admit to noticing a greater immersiveness in the picture, BUT, I'm only comparing it to my 42" LG 1080p tv that i had in the room before the samsung, so I don't really know whether what I'm noticing is down to the curve, or just the better quality of the tv in general. Either way, I'm very happy with my purchase, although a little miffed that the price has dropped by £300 since i bought it about 4 months ago

Would be better if it was a Plasma

£999 Richer Sounds I think

Uses ips panel if anyone interested.

Not sure how comfartable it would. Be sitting in front of this for a long time. I.e eyestrain especially on bright scenes

Old technology, wait for better.

Having just 200hz processing and only one HDMI 2.0 socket ruins TV's like this as it means they're not quite future proof IMO. The price is decent for the spec though considering some of the high end model prices.

I'm of the avoid Currys generation, not bad price, but doubt I'll be changing from my Samsung PSF8500 for many years, these panels can not touch it for image quality.

Definition of a first world problem right here

Bought this tv a few days ago. Great product, Great price.

This one or a KDL60W855BBU ?

Rich peoples also like a bargain...

stuff the screen burn and electric bill

Comment

Really worth the extra £200 over the LG 55UB830V? which has 3D and being by all Euronics stores/

euronics.co.uk/tv-…521

Look at the side by side and judge, I like FPS on my Xbox so the Sony has lower lag so I would opt for this.

chimney breast too small...just and a bit of timber and plasterboard.for effect.
