Model 40FME242B-T
Full HD TV with Web Browsing, Netflix, Freeview HD & PVR
WiFi Dongle included

This is direct from Finlux website.
Free delivery, 14 Days No Fuss Returns and 12 month Warranty.

Similar to the Hitachi sold at Argos but this has 3 x HDMIs albeit 40".

Other models available in 42". Spec seems to be same as above but the 40" version I've linked in this deal is most energy efficient.

42F8075-T £249.99
42FME242S-T £279.99

not bad, but I think for the same price I'd rather Argos eBay Hitachi

I've seen Samsung's of roughly equivocal spec >= this.
#3
how does this compare to the hitachi oh HUKD tv gods?
I feel this is a better deal due to included wifi dongle but can anyone comment on menu interface etc? I feel Hitachi would offer better...

I'd rather get the Finlux, even if it is slightly smaller. Not sure whose panels they use, but picture quality is usual very good on them. Certainly better than the Vestel crap they stick the Hitachi name on these days...

Is this an original Finlux?

A few Finlux TV's have been reviewed on the Gadget show in the past and seem to be pretty good for the money.

3 HDMI good, oddly this is £45-£50 cheaper direct from Finlux than from Amazon for example. I guess also an external HDD can be used as a PVR.

Finlux are always rated good on the gadget show, close to the quality of top end panels, and a bargain for the price. Cheaper branded models are not as good as these.

Heat added :)

I bought a 42" 3D finlux for £279 late 2013 for my sons room and the picture quality is suprisingly good, very good infact.

The only gripe we have with it is that the TV itself has NO buttons, not even to power it on. So if you can't find/loose the remote, it's quite frustrating. Not sure if there are buttons on the newer sets though, you would have to look into that if it could be a problem for you.

Hmmm ... this or the Blaupunkt 40" from Tesco [ http://www.tesco.com/direct/blaupunkt-40148-40-inch-full-hd-1080p-led-tv-with-freeview-hd/372-5799.prd ] for £30 less. Sure, the Blaupunkt doesn't have Smart functionality but does come with 5 year warranty (which would put the Finlux up to over £300)

Bought a Finlux TV just before Christmas - arrived damaged. Customer services were brilliant - replacement in a few days, despite the Christmas rush. Staright swap, rather than having to send one back then wait for authorisation, as well. I know other people have had different experiences but I couldn't fault them.

They do a 50" 1080p set for just shy of £300 without any of the unnecessary smart-feature guff.

Anyone got this set?

Got to say that with the extras it's the Blaupunkt for me.

I've got the 3d 32 inch model, can't fault the tv or make for the money paid.
#19
among the vestel made TVs which one is the best please? ?
#20
It only accepts fat32 formatted devices to record on.
No NTFS. No good for large usb sticks and drives.
#21
I thought EU laws say minimum two years warranty...

i purchased the 39 "@ the end of november and mine got lost or stolen by courier company,it took about 10 days for them to confirm this even after I had reported non delivery the next day they had no P O D either.by the time they were going to send out a replacement they were out of stock and no alternative offered.this was meant to be an Xmas pressie for my daughter.eventually got a refund about 3 weeks later.not good I felt that I was held to ransom and was being treated like a criminal.....

I have a 500GB HD which I re-formatted from NTFS to fat 32 no probs, works great.

It does, as a directive. the UK Sale of Goods Act allows for up to 6 years.
After the first 6 months (or possibly 12 months) the onus is on the consumer to prove that there was a pre-existing fault or bad design. So that could involve you paying an for an independent engineers report. Quite extreme but that's what the law allows for.

I'm sure if you were marginally over 12 months and you were good with your words then you could get them to repair/replace/refund.

This is a Vestel.
So it is, in fact it's not simply a re-badge, Finlux is a part of Vestel. Maybe they use the better quality components for their own sets, as - unlike Toshiba and other re-badges - Finlux sets almost always get very good reviews, and always seem to have very good picture quality.

But they already got the money for the second warranty year from most customers... It is a bit unfair, and lots of EU countries do offer 2 years from the start, but I guess that could be a higher starting price in those cases.

Does anyone know the difference between the 42F8075-T £249.99 and the 42FME242S-T £279.99?

The ME24 is the new model and the specifications look exactly the same but can't find reviews from the same reviewers to properly compare.

Ive got the older 8073 in my bedroom by way and it is absolutely fine a year on.

FYI Vestel actually own Finlux.

These units are made by Vestel in Turkey.

I also believe the wifi is built in and not a dongle.
