I've been flirting with the idea of upgrading from my trusty 55" Samsung Smart TV to a 65" QLED for months and months but always seem to resist taking the plunge.

However, my resolve is currently being sorely tested as a mid-range model is now available for under a grand!

Aaaaaargh!!!  :-\

Tempted by an LG oled 55", if only there was something decent to watch on tv.

Picked up a Sony KD75XH9005BU 75" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV with Google Assistant with a SONY - UBP-X800M2 Smart 4K Ultra HD 3D Blu-ray Player and a SONY - HT-ZF9 3.1 Wireless Cinematic Sound Bar with Dolby Atmos.....it's the first tv I've bought in over 10 years...and it will probably be another 10 before I think about buying another....providing I'm still drawing breath by then.

I saved about £500 and I'm hoping I'll also get back a few more through "Topcashback"....if it tracks.

You're so right on that last point!  That's why I like renting films on blu-ray. :)  I must admit I've been looking at the LG's CX and BX range OLEDs as well; the Samsung QLEDs are a tad more keenly priced however.

In any case, I think I've overcome my latest urge, mainly because small children have the temerity to expect Xmas presents.

A handy price checker site :-

Also if using Amazon you can often get a decent deal on their "Warehouse" platform which are basically nearly new or damaged box products.

Bumping the share price in my own small way, you're welcome!

I'm looking for two new TVs at the moment. I fancy a 49" Samsung QLED (QE49Q80T) for home and a 43" Panasonic LED (43HX600BZ) for my mum. At the moment the Samsung is around £999 (John Lewis, Currys) although a couple if online retailers are offering it for around £800. I don't really want to take the chance with a little known retailer, although Currys say they will price match with online sellers.

The Panasonic is just over £500 at most places. I will probably wait until the New Year to see if the prices come down before I commit. Anyone have any thoughts, especially on the Samsung?

Don't forget topcashback for a few quid back as well.
