    Hi,

    I'd appreciate some input on my TV choice.

    I'm looking for a 75" TV. Dropping down in size isn't an option.

    The main function will be to show sports - football, NFL and golf. So lots of quick movements in the first 2, but also looking to capture as many of the undulations and colour changes on the greens when watching the golf. I'll also watch my fair share of films and may hook up a Nintendo in the fullness of time.

    The TV will be on the wall, main seating will be about 4.5m away, fairly straight on. It'll be hooked up to my standard LG soundbar.

    At the moment I'm stalling, hoping either the Samsung UE75NU8000 or the Sony KD75XF8596 can get close to that £2k mark. I know they're close but my starting budget was £1500!

    I'd be happy to look at an earlier model but I'm keen to get a good guarantee.

    Am I on the right track, is there anything I'm missing? Are my price targets realistic and when could the next big price drop be?

    Many thanks

    Kenneth

    There has just been a similar thread on this here: Help with recomendations for size..

    XE85/XF85 are using IPS panels at 75" so I'd avoid.
    NU8000 is a better option. Its priced okay but may drop black Friday or in clearance sales next year by 100-200.

    Do you need to spend more? No, not really for good motion. You would want to spend more on say the Sony 75XF9005 though if you wanted good HDR.

    I did too Zep and even added it to the best buy list until I realised it wasn't.

    Funny because the new XF85/87 series are VA at 49 and 82" apparently. Makes for more confusion.

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    I've just seen that both Currys and Richer Sounds are doing £250 off the Samsung UE75NU8000 for the bank holiday weekend, bringing it down to £2,250.

    At that price do you reckon it's time to go for it, and that it would represent the best buy for what I'm looking for?

    The only nagging doubt - the UE75NU7100 is widely available for £1,850, possibly a bit less.

    Is the NU8000 worth another £400?

    Thanks

    Try and get a price match with one of these?
    Samsung UE75NU8000 (TVs)

    Or wait for a better time to buy, possibly black friday where you may find it £100 cheaper.

    If you don't want to bother trying to get price matches then you really should wait, not sure I would like spending an extra £250 over the price it will be in clearance close to this time next year but that is up to you.

    There are perhaps a couple of discounts I could use to get it a bit lower.

    Is it worth a few hundred more than the UE75NU7100 though? Do you know what the main difference is?

    From what I can see it's refresh rate - is that a big deal?

    thanks

    NU8000 is brighter too, and has local dimming. The 120hz panel will allow you to use more motion enhancements if you don’t like how it’s handled normally.

    No idea what panel the 75NU7100 will be using.

    This is a decent deal too: Panasonic 75" Ultra HD 4K Pro HDR LED Television - TX-75EX750B

    There's a 75MU8000 at reliant direct too at a good price but I'm not sure about their reputation.

    All these models will be as good as the NU8000.

    It's a shame the Hisense 75N6800 sold out at £1500 as that would be a good cheaper option.

    ...I wish it wasn't so hard to find panel info on Samsung TV's, you'd like to think they would use va but you can't be sure.
