Have been waiting for a deal on this TV for a while now and it's finally dropped. Just can't convince myself to take the plunge! Can anyone who bought one of these previously enlighten me in anyway.

N.B. It's not the 3D version (which I wouldn't use anyway)

3% Quidco also available.

Cheers, Anthony.

pixmania is a big no no, it's just a bad company with pi$$ poor customer service. and I've never heard of the make CHANGHONG ! my advise would be Avoid and buy from a good company with a 5 year guarantee and a tv main brand .

Changhong is the second biggest manufacturer of TVs in China and this set apparently rivals some of the £2000 sets available from better known brands. Hence why I asked the opinion of people who actually own the set as opposed to people going off a name. Cheers.

Sichuan Changhong Electric Co., Ltd. (Changhong), is a consumer electronics company based in Mianyang, China and founded in 1958. they are also the second-largest manufacturer of televisions in China and In 2004, 90% of the television sets exported from China to the United States were made by Changhong.[3]

In 2010, they made a household 3D TV which is both sold locally and exported

So hardly an unknown company really

mostly sell to usa, check reviews on newegg.com for similar tv, will show which of the specs you need to check before buying.
#7
And to get a 55" tv with the spec this has for £534.77 is just astonishing imo and of course the whole emphasis of HUKD is unless it can be bought elsewhere for cheaper then it is indeed a "hukd" so HOT from me op ;)

its still unknown to most people who look in their local john lewis,pc world, ect. so yes its unknown. most people know and trust sony, samsung,lg, and pixmania is a terrible company. thats why this is sub zero !

I agree on the comment about Pixmania but nevertheless this is still a very cheap price for a tv of this spec, even if people over here haven't heard of the company they have sufficient sales to justify their status.

I don't trust Sony any more; overpriced and average. Samsung, yes. LG, not so much. "Unknown to those who shop in John Lewis" is not a valid complaint. HUKD is all about people who look outside the big retailers and "safe" brands.

Just 4k, not 3d, as mentioned in the OP.

that's one part of the logic for a hot deal... i'd suggest the ease of replacement or repair and the reliability of the after service is just as important... from the general hubub regarding the seller on this site, unless there's some kind of service contract in the uk, you're expecting... what?

I would imagine some would be put off, its the same as some people using main dealers and others using respectable local garages when their vehicles need attention.. You will find that parts are as easy to source as any other brand due to the fact they are a mass manufacturer. most tv engineers know how to compare serviceable parts and their respectable part numbers.

This thread has, in no way, made the decision any easier for myself! Haha.

Avoid Pixmania.........Not doubting tv just if there are any problems you would be better off taking it
Back to China yourself. Pixmania are the pitts. Branding generally is a con and most people
Like a deal........but no body wants to be left with a brick or a money pit especially within the first
year of buying something. My experience with Pixmania was the worst I have come across in
Over 40 years plus of consumerism. Their error cost me dearly in my time - phone calls.....and frustration.........if you want over 6 months of grief .......as was my experience AVOID PIXMANIA

If you just want someone to blame for your choice if it turns out bad, I'll take the hit (but no financial responsibility).

all true, except 99% of people have never had a tv repaired by in independent tv engineer or would trust one... plus, as you can get 5 year warranties at tescos, john lewis and the occasional richer sounds. sometimes the herd mentality is just better.(and if anyone thinks about replying with the word 'sheeple' then just get back to housepricecrash ans awaiting armageddon in your mamma's back bedroom...)

I wouldn't agree with your 99% figure but I do agree that most would go to a shop and of course pay their fees.. The richer sounds john lewis thing is of course linked with the paying 3 x times the price initially so it comes down to individual decisions really but as said before, it is still the cheapest tv of this spec around at the moment..

Is this hdmi 2?

Changhong is household brand in China, definitely not unknown. But this importer seems bad, and this particular TV is of previous generation. The latest should be uhd55c6000 ish. But anyway, the price is reasonable around 500 mark as it priced inside China, consider the import cost, I would say heat.
#25
I would have bought this TV if it was sold by Tesco or ASDA. Sorry Pixmania.
