John Lewis has got off to a fairly strong start with its first big-screen TV. Despite not being a 4K TV it establishes a high-end, uncompromising tone thanks to its gorgeously opulent metallic design, innovative audio system, peerless smart TV interface and often attractive pictures.
It's a shame the 55JL9000's dependence on an IPS-style panel means it has problems handling dark scenes. But its strengths elsewhere still make it an attractive family TV, if you can get one before the current £1300 price (possibly) goes back up to £1700.
