    Being a big retailer, I expect an argument from them and tons of ****ing around. Guess we'll see.

    Any idea who you spoke to at HN, very handy having the name of the dickwad you spoke to? I've found HN to be the biggest douches with after sales service.

    Good luck with the refund, can't see how you wont get it. If they offer store credit tell them to get stuffed, should be at least an apology and gift voucher on top of the refund.

    The annoying thing is that I don't particularly want a refund as I know I got that at a decent price. They got them on there now on one of their bullshit 'sales' for 3.5k and I paid just over 1900 for mine.

    Won't stop me having a good old bitch at them first.

    Is it correct that the flagship Q9 model has no curved variant?

    From what I've seen on avs forums there is a non curved

    Sorry, what i mean is, there is a flat/non-curved Q9, but they haven't made a curved variant.

    If that's true, isn't it telling that there isn't a curved version of their top-of-the-line TV? Despite pyronical's earlier assertion that curved TV's were here to stay, wouldn't user-uptake determine that? I mean, surely a prudent manufacturer isn't going to keep making a product that consumers just aren't buying?

    Oh sorry misread. Yes I believe there is both.

    ^ I don't think there is - i didn't see one listed, and this seems to say the same thing;

    Definitely an unusual decision.

    The models that actually launch in NZ are undecided as of now though.

    Unfortunately no. Had my last one stolen just before Christmas so I am impressed that I had it sorted with insurance before the end of the year.
    great purchase. Mega Jelly. I was so keen to get one but just couldn't justify in the end. Not enough 4k content and my Panny plasma is great. I may have been tempted if I got paid out for my insurance claim following the EQ, but EQC aren't really as quick as private insurers...

    Can confirm that they will not.

    So I just found out Mass Effect: Andromeda will support HDR for PC, so my question is this: I know my G1 Gaming 980 is HDR compatible, so is my KS8000, do I need to buy a new fandangled HDMI 2.0a cable to make HDR work or is that just what output is required from the PC end?

    There are no HDMI 2.0a cables on trademe, so I'm not even sure that's a thing

    As far as I can tell, 2.0a cables are just called "high speed HDMI".

    At least that's what I gathered from Noel Leemings when I picked up one for my UHD player.

    If using those terms you need "Premium high speed" hdmi cables.

    Oh nice, the one I'm using probably isn't one of those: it's been the same since 2013 when I bought this Z77 mobo.

    The whole HDMI thing kind of confuses me, stoked we can play ME:A in 1080/60 with HDR: wonder if a 980 would do 4K at locked 30fps...hmm (not likely I'm thinking) - anyone able to chime in who has played BF1 perhaps in 4K with a 980/3770K combo?

    I have had cables lock me at 4k30hz in the past. I buy all my cables from Amazon.com in the Amazonbasics range. Super cheap and well reviewed.

    Managed to get hold of my KS8000 today after a lot of bullshit with HN.

    Anyway, works beautifully and looks great. Very happy with it.

    Only issue I have is that my Raspberry Pi 3 don't seem to work when I try to use it with the TV. Works fine on my other two TVs.

    Any ideas?

    You should elaborate quite a bit.

    Let me guess; you rocked up and said "I'm not waiting until 31 January, please cancel the order!" and they magicked one up from somewhere?

    Ended up buying a TV in the boxing day sales, was half looking at an LG one but decided not too.

    Then when I was down at Harvey Norman looking for a stereo amp/speakers I spied a very nice looking 49' Sony. I looked up the reviews which were decent and the 4K demo actually looked nice, it was cheap too so bought it. Been very happy with it, though I did return the first one I got due to a dead pixel.

    Been watching a bunch of 4K Hdr, 1080p and whatever garbage sky go is regurgitating and it's much better than the middle of the range Panasonic plasma I had before. Gaming on the PS4 Pro is pretty sweet too.

    Totally sold on hdr now, watching The Grand Tour is a revelation in the colour palette especially since rewatching earlier episodes.

    Good to have another member of the KS8/9000 crew on board!

    Bloody amazing TV, I think I might have lucked out with this panel too, no dead pix and minimal clouding: huzzah son, huzzah

    If we want to get super technical they need to guarantee 18gb at the minimum. This is critical over long runs, short runs you will be fine with any decent cable purchased in 2016.
