I'm think I'm going to get either the M3300 or M7000 in the next few days (not sure which yet) but want to get the prep done for when it arrives beforehand.

Can someone please let me know what type of power cable it uses? (I.e. 2 Pin figure of 8 or 3 pin etc)
Reason for asking is I already have one running through the wall and would love to not have to change it but if I do I can arrange before delivery of the TV so it's just a case of hanging it on the wall.

Thanks in advance.

I bought the 40" M3300 for £250 from Amazon. The power is supplied from a figure8 cable on the right hand side (may be different on larger sets).
I left a positive review on Amazon but it was based on the price (£250). I would be disappointed if I'd spent more. The set looks good and picture quality is great but mine suffers from terrible ghosting. Very noticeable when the kids are watching high saturation cartoons. Plus SD performance is poor. Not seen the M7000 but I'd recommend trying to see some in action before purchasing.

Thanks for your help. Was hoping it would be a standard figure of 8 as I can just get an adapter for the one I already have to that but when searching I came across this (https://www.amazon.com/Hisense-50H5G-Power-Cord-Plug/dp/B019ZKV1RQ) which worried me it might be a little different.


Just double checked and it's definitely the standard fig8. Same as our Sky Box. But, ours is a 40" so maybe the 50" has a proprietary connector.

Be interested in your choice as I have the same. I think the 3300 is an older model with less spec. 7000 looks a lot better but is more expensive too

Would much prefer the 7000 but not wanting to spend much as is likely to just be a TV for a year or so and then replace so not sure the extra is worth it. (Especially when it spends 90% of its life just playing Peppa Pig)

We looked at the 7000 in Richersounds, the picture quality was brilliant in terms of the HD quality which left the SD picture somewhat lacking but nonetheless good. You might need to do a bit of tweaking to get the picture just right to suit your own needs but well worth it. They might also do a price match with laptop direct, saving you around £70.

Can I ask why you've discounted the 5500 series? I was thinking between that and the 7000 but I haven't done oodles of researchoO

To be honest I'm far from an expert on them.
I need to buy whatever I get from Amazon as they've replaced my old one with a gift certificate for around £575 so need to get something in that budget (don't want to spend much more at the moment)
