    What is the best 4K Full HDR TV for under £500

    Right Guys,

    There seems to be a lot of talk regarding 4K TV's at the moment with a lot of people talking about the 8-bit Panels, not full HDR, Faux-K bla bla bla...

    So my question is, what is the best one with true 4K resolution, a 'good panel' and 'full HDR' for around the £500 mark?

    Im going to be buying one in the black Friday events so at this point a little knowledge from you good people on this site would be appreciated.

    So... Discuss.

    Thank you.

    I do actually yes.. Why?

    Full HDR at this price is not possible not even close to this price.

    Would you care to explain more? Perhaps give me an indication on how much I would have to spend minimum with an example TV?

    First it needs to be said that the manufacturers have not helped with this whole HDR scenario with some clever but ambiguous marketing,to get the full HDR experience you need one that has Premium UHD certification this means it will be 10 bit have the peak brightness and the colour pallete necessary for it to work,the cheapest example I can find is the Samsung KS7500 43 inch curved it retails for £799 at Richer sounds at the moment.To put this in context the Sony above is a decent TV but it is what it is a 4K set with HDR compatibility the problem with sets like these is they are 8 bit so fall well short in terms of colour pallete also it's peak brightness is 5 times less than the minimum required for Premium UHD.

    There's 20% off warehouse tv's with student prime at the moment. There's been some cracking deals over on the main warehouse thread. Just got myself a 55" 4K hdr Hisense for £370 (said damaged box and it turned up in mint condition)
    Some people have had Sony's less than 200!
