    Afternoon All,

    Which of this following would you say offers the best value? All are applicable to an additional 20% off very Very (although I’ll see whether RS/JL will price match).

    - UE55NU7100 £799.99.

    - UE49MU7000TXXU £649.

    - UE49MU6400UXXU £499.

    Avoid the NU7100 - it’s a bottom rung option and a 2018 model so is overpriced relative to the others. I’d avoid mu6400 as it’s an ips panel, which is best avoided unless you need wide viewing angles

    To be frank, look at the MU7xxx @ 55”. It’s a much better option than the 49” one. Look for cash back deals.

    Yeah it’s the MU7000 I’m after ideally, frustratingly I’m struggling to find any decent cashback offers.

    £699 is a very good deal for the MU7xxx @ 55”. Even the newer nu7100 with a discount is only £60 cheaper. And the MU is far superior.

    Out of curiosity, why is the MU7x better than nu 7100?? I had a HU 7500 a while back and from memory, their series numbers generally mean higher spec. Isnt the NU a replacement of the MU??

    It was £540 on Very which makes it tough to swallow (appreciate that doesn’t include 5YR warranty).

    NU is replacing MU range. However, the NU7100 is replacing mu6100 with the MU7000 being replaced by NU8000.

    Very cheeky. I was offered an NU7100 to replace a KS7500, which is why I know about it.

    Suffice to say I rejected that offer!

    Unfortunately Samsung employ trickery when it comes to model numbers now. Since probably 2015 I think.

    But to answer OPs question I really wouldn't touch any of those TVs. I'd look at getting the MU7000 at 55" as already advised. The 49" MU7000 is an overpriced TV really as it doesn't share its 55"+ brothers 120hz panel.

    The Hisense NU87000 or U7A would also be alternatives that should be as good.

    Sony's XE85xx series tend to be a bit too expensive, but with the right deal would be good.

    Same with Panasonic, the EX750 tends to be overpriced, but with the right deal pushing it closer to the Samsung MU7000 in price it would be good value.

    Debenhams offering it for £683, will look at price match.
