is there a shop in dublin where we can watch these tvs live with 4k and non 4k content for comparison? i am worried if sky non hd channels will look awful on these.
It is definitely saorview approved, can't think of any main brand or even generic TV I've seen in last few years that hasn't been.
Of course, every TV sold here has to be
Ill never buy another samsung tv, always bought them but had two fail this year both under two years old
I do like the look of this, im well past buying expensive sets, too many stories of breakdowns with new TV`s no wonder you rarely get more than 12 months warranty these days.
How does 1080 content display or upscale on 4k?
Warranty is in addition to your consumer rights and in this country they are better than a warranty.
That's not actually true, and technically that tv is not Saorview approved. It is not part of the database of TV models on the site: https://www.saorview.ie/en/get/products
That being said, just because it has not been explicitly tested/reviewed against/by Saorview, that is not to say that it does not support all the standards atop which Saorview runs, and I'm sure this TV at least falls into that category. For example, I have a Samsung 32" TV from a number of years ago (>7 at least) that was not technically Saorview certified, but still works with it perfectly.
It would make it easy to return if bought from a bricks and mortar shop and you don't like it
Just tried on the curry’s website - looks like that 55’ for 699 is sold out ... anyone got a code for it or may look at the Samsung as next best option to replace the 12 year old warrior sharp aquos 42’
I won't buy a tv off anyone other than richersounds.
6 year guarantee is pretty much standard with them or you can haggle for it.
And when you need the guarantee there is no messing.
Any good deals with them?
Loads, basically they are better value than the majority of resellers in the UK & Ireland for TV & HiFi. They also have the most experience with the equipment too.
Just have a look at their site for deals
They also have a Talk To forum here on Boards
I'm half thinking of upgrading my current 48" Samsung Smart TV for a 55" but would ideally prefer something with Freesat UK compatibility, multiple HDMI ports and future-proofing, as well as support for apps like Netflix and Plex
Would the LG referred to above do the job do ye think?
Did have a look but looks more expensive than the listed bargains.
I'm open to someone posing bargins from them in the 49, 50, 55, 58, 65 inch models.
Someone else posted a link to the same TV in DID further down the thread and in the link, it says the TV does have HDR. Is that incorrect information? https://www.did.ie/samsung-6-series-58-4k-ultra-hd-flat-led-smart-tv-black-ue58mu6120kxx-ue58mu6120kxx-prd?cmp=cel&trigger=ac
this one is now 699 with HDR, i think this is a better deal than both the OP and LG
