I just bought this TV yesterday. Lets be honest here, for £299.00 you are not going to get a 50inch Smart HD TV that is going to give you the same crystal OMG clarity of say a Sony, or Panasonic..I knew that as soon as I went through the till with it!..that said, the picture quality is much better than I expected at this price, a couple of tweeks in the settings and I am getting a very good, reasonable and very watchable picture, especially in HD. Motion is very good and fluid, even with Sport. The sound though, is truly awful! However, I remebered having tooked away a Creative Labs 2.1 sound system with a SPDIFF socket, (I used to use it on my computer years ago but I moth ball'd it some time ago) I plugged that in and the sound is amazing now! Very clear with a good base. I may get a soundbar though, not decided yet (you can get a SPDIFF-Optical converter box for about £15.00). I have no problem with Lip sync. works fine. So thats the sound sorted. The initial set up was quick and easy and I didn't even have to swear once. Next, set up the WiFi, this is usualy were things generally go Tits up for me, but Surprise surprise it found my WiFi instantly, put my passcode in and I was on line in a few minutes. I then changed a few things in the advanced settings, like turning off the auto switch down and the Eco setting, and few other things.
The amount of extra's and apps available in the internet section are staggering and the option to download more. ( I just found the 'in Concert' app..fantastic!.)..Its a very smart TV indeed. It only has the BBC iPlayer for on demand services (as is the usual case) but I have a NowTv box for the others. Tip- plug in a wireless mouse for internet browser app.

Plugging in a Blu-ray player will give you as good a picture as you will get with almost any HD TV so I have no complaints there (my 'Life' Blu-ray discs looked stunning! ) the same with DVD, you will get same picture as with most TVs).
I love the Big 50 inch screen and the very thin edging gives me an almost 'being there' feeling. The remote control looks very stylish with its curved inner, but its very cheap feeling and clunky, but it works. And it comes, for a limited time, with a Five year warranty.

Look...I am not trying to sex things up and make this TV out to be something that will rival a Sony or a Panasonic, if you want that kind of quality then I suggest you pay Twice the price and buy one of those. The DigiHome is not going to win any prize's..but for the money you are going to get a much better TV with a better picture than you expected, Packed with extra features, but a terrible sound (unless you plug in an external speaker then the sound is very good) and a clunky remote. For people who want a 50 inch Smart TV but dont have Sony Money, I think this fills a gap, at £299.00 its a good adiquate buy in my opinion and with a five year warranty given ( though for a limited time only) its quite a 'Smart' buy really.

Yes but only £299 for a 50" I wouldn't expect anything else.

And at least they are honest instead of fictitious refresh rates

I agree, but for my personal standard, 60hz is an absolute minimum.

Fantastic deal for the price.

yes it does
#8
because it won't last more than the base warranty which should be an EU one but no doubt being Tesco they will wriggle out of. stick to a brand for peace of mind

What is a branded TV

Does 50hz mean much or is it just peoples preference?

I have not been into gaming for a good few years so just wondering if consoles work better on a certain refresh rate?

You can add the 5 Year protection plan for £43.99.

I have an LG 39 " smart TV already which I paid a similar price (£320) Last year. I am experiencing issues with it so I decided to buy the Digihome 50", Although my LG is 100Hz and this is only 50hz for the price/size with smart functionality I don't think you can go wrong. I have read reviews on this brand and all seem to be more positive than negative but I guess I can only wait until it arrives to find out !

All Tescos tv's larger than 32" are with 5 year warranty until 21st jan. It's on their website as general offer, you will receive an email confirming once bought.

60hz is an absolute must for a dedicated gamer.

Casual however maybe not so much.

I would buy if I hadn't just bought a 48" at Sainsbury. Very good price for a Smart TV of this size.

Don't buy TV to show off the size and get something smaller but better.

I bought one. took it back today as the sound was awful (very tinney) and the picture was poor. my advice look at the Hz at least a 100 Hz

Because a cheap TV with 100Hz refresh will obviously provide better picture quality...

My advice, care a little less about the refresh rate, and read reviews on a product before buying it.

Looks like vestel have dumped a load of this model on the market cheap, I'm voting hot for no other reason than it's £100 cheaper than it's Hitachi branded twin :) (The Hitachi is the same TV in every way apart from the badge if you compare specs etc)

The Panasonic in Curry's is also the same chassis but with a 100hz panel in it.

Depends. Only if you're plugging in a PC. The latest peasant boxes don't get 60 fps.

As this is same the same Vestel unit doing the rounds, there's a fix to make the sound better, undwr sound options enabled avl or something along those lines, it makes the sound louder.
#32
Re sound, this is 8w x 2 while most branded ones are 10w x 2.
Whenever you see anything less than 2x 10w, you have to expect sound will not be as good as what you are used to.
#33
Hoping someone may be able to help with the following (thinking about picking this up later this evening):

1. Could this be wall mounted on a universal bracket?

2. The sound doesn't appear to be great. Would buying a sound bar help?
#34
Anybody know how to get the i-Phone App for this. The Tesco description says it has one.

Sorry..but I beg to differ..I saw a 50inch Panasonic switched On in Tesco Last night, it was only showing Coronation Street but the picture was absolutly stunning, I asked an assistant if he could turn up the volume a bit, he did and the sound was bloody great!, it also looked more solid and robust, same one is £545.00! In argos .they also had the Digihome switched on near by and it wasnt in the same league! I was so impressed with it that I have decided to take back the Digihome today and get the Panasonic on my Argos card(12months interest free with that) just about to shoot up there now!. Tbh I wish I had done this in the first place, I still stand by what I said in my preveous review however so I am not now going to **** of the Digihome, but its miles away from the Panasonic now I've seen them almost side by side.
