    Funny you say that. I gave my 51" plasma to my mother in law when I upgraded last year. Two months after the extended warranty expired and it started giving problems. I think it wouldnt come on. Samsung charged R2k to fix it. I can't remember the fault.

    I would've been pleasantly surprised if they could show you any HDR content. That Gears of War 4 split screen feature will be nice if they have an X in the store. Though if it's a sub par tv you wont see a difference, just an annoying line down the middle of the screen.

    "The first trademark filing is for ‘Direct Full Array Elite’, which is noteworthy for a number of reasons. None of Samsung so-called “QLED” LCD TVs this year use a full array local dimming system like the one in Sony Z9D or Panasonic DX900. Instead, Samsung is using edge LED, which cannot faithfully reproduce HDR video due to limited control over luminance levels. Switching back to FALD would make the LCD TVs thicker but at the same time markedly improve picture quality."

    Decided to give the MU6400 a closer look this morning, I see it's a direct lit panel, not edge lit - so if the S.A. MU7000l is thicker than its edge-lit counterparts that should be a dead giveaway. That's actually something of a bonus as it means it's not going to display the same patchy brightening effect.

    I found a Samsung page with all 2017 uhd and suhd model variants (not by region though) and I noticed that the MU6300 range looks identical to our MU7000 range (cannot see the thickness like you mentioned above from the product photos) and also it is the only model that is released internationally in the exact same sizes as our MU7000 range.

    The sizes could be an indication that we’re getting the MU6300 because it is the only tv in the entire Samsung range that comes in 50” and our MU7000 comes in 50” (whereas the UN and UE MU7000 range does not).

    So right now I suspect the MU6300 is what is branded as the MU7000 in SA. Now I’m intrigued by the direct lit feature you found on this model..

    Thanks,

    Interesting read that, I wonder why they are so hell bent on LCD tech still instead of making the switch to OLED.

    Probably feel they're too far behind in the tech to compete with LG.

    If only LG would make OLEDs cheaper.

    I reckon they should repackage the OLED B6,C6,E6 in cheaper frames and make super profit. They are still the second best OLED panels to this years "7" series LG OLED panels

    I wouldn't go so far as to call it a feature, cheaper LCDs are often backlit. It's easier and cheaper to do, even though edge lighting often means poorer screen uniformity, consumers prefer the slim profile.

    Because there's no way in hell they'll buy panels from rival LG.

    Making their own OLEDs isn't feasible, they sunk a lot of money into trying to produce RGB OLEDs but couldn't get it right, it's only LG with their WRGB approach that were able to produce commercially feasible OLEDs.

    Actually relative to other premium TVs, their OLEDs are very competitive, same price bracket as the better FALDs and what the better plasmas used to cost.

    The MU6100 also comes in 50" and according to the specs is exactly the same as our MU7000

    I see the actual 55MU7000 is R20k at Dion Wired today

    This is the one I am looking at for Black Friday but even R20k seems like too much.
