Buy now or on Black Friday? Samsung 43KS7500 4K TV

Found 2nd Nov 2016
currys.co.uk/gbu…tml

Usually goes for £849-899.
Recently been lowered to £799-849 everywhere, but with a 7% discount at work I can get it for £744 through currys who do a 5yr guarantee included.

Anyone reckon it will be cheaper than £744 during black friday week? It released during April this year.
Currys do price matches but only with the 'bigger' sites like john lewis, tesco etc.

They also do a 7-day post-purchase price match, so do I either buy now to avoid missing the in-store stock (as my work's discount is only valid on in-store collection) or do I wait another 2 weeks to qualify for black friday price matching?

As far as I am aware they will not price match if the discounted price is cheaper regardless of the sell price. As for the rest off your question I have not seen any info on stores black friday prices yet.

They'd be price matching the price before discount. Basically my work discount is off a gift voucher which is used to buy the tv in-store. I can't see why they wouldn't be able to.
Yeah i'm looking for price predictions
Can see it going quite a bit lower considering the build quality is terrible on the ks range of 2016 tv's

I personally can't see it going under £700. Can you elaborate on build quality?
was going to suggest doing what I did, buy from John Lewis on a price promise on another Samsung TV and took advantage of the 28 days price policy but seen you have the Currys discount. We can get discounts through work at various places and bought a laptop from currys which was a nightmare, they did refund it but the works discounts was on vouchers so now I am stuck with vouchers I can only use at Currys. Better offers out there now at other retailers so in hind sight wish I hadn't got the currys vouchers now. something to think about. Might be more I know its £55 but with the added bonus of the JL warranty over the currys possibly Samsung one which I have seen plenty of issues, may be worth paying the £55 and taking the price promise with JL.

Ah, thanks for the info. So they refund you back in vouchers? I'll always need a tv for my ps4 so I suppose if mine broke with them I could use it against a similar price tv if and when it breaks
for me, we get to buy discounted vouchers, so the refund was back in vouchers.

Its specifically the KS7000 the rear cover seems to come of with great frequency i don't think it will affect the KS7500.Be aware reviews i have seen on the same review site says the HDR is a bit hit and miss and for the KS7000 they say it's a HDR hero can't quite understand why as i thought the spec would be the same.

Did you end up buying this TV? 10% off today through quidco and I'm considering it, was considering the 7000 series but I need it in a 43"

I did, the tv is brilliant. Well worth the money for the smaller 10bit screen form factor and perfect for what I wanted it for (ps4 pro gaming). I'd highly recommend, the HDR is also lovely
Thank you for your reply. Did you wall hang it? It looks great, some bad reviews about ghosting through and issues with greys. Always said curved TVs are a mimic but that is the only side that fits in our gap that's a 7000 series or greater

My eyes aren't tuned in enough to ghosting enough to tell you about that. There's some but that's because I play a lot of fifa with footballs zipping around everywhere (in HDR mode). The ghosting can be reduced with motion/blur/judder reduction. With movies there really isn't any.
Yep I've got it on a tilt/swivel mount, it looks gorgeous and not too out of the ordinary floating there. The curve of the tv isn't very pronounced.
Do note I followed a recommended tv setup config from a review I found. They rated it very highly once they'd calibrated it to those settings.

Personally I didn't find any reviews about the ghosting, but samsungs in game mode have some of the lowest input lag figures for 4K tvs atm.

UPDATE
I've been looking out for the ghosting and can confirm it happens in games on all modes except 'Game Mode'. However, HDR is still enabled in game mode and the picture quality is still amazing. If you follow a settings guide you can get the picture looking even better (like I did). In 'Game Mode' you get an input lag of about 21ms which results in pretty much no ghosting whatsoever.
