As above

Not heard of the brand ? These are quality sets at affordable prices compared to others and the warranty speaks for itself.

Upsize your TV without having to pay a fortune, with the amazing value Hisense 55M5500 - 50" 4K HDR TVs don't come cheaper!

Big screen, small price
At a price point where most 4K HDR TVs offer a screen size of around 46", this Hisense hits out with an impressive 55" screen. This makes all the difference, especially with films, where this size of screen truly immerses you in the picture. Thanks to 4K UHD resolution, you can also sit closer than a conventional FHD, 1080p TV, making a big screen a far more realistic proposition in a smaller room than ever before.

HDR - High Dynamic Range for superb contrast
Taking 4K UHD one stage further, the 55M5500 boasts HDR (High Dynamic Range) compatibility. This extends the range of colours for enhanced realism. It also delivers brighter whites and darker blacks, helping to give this TV stunning levels of contrast.

Fantastically detailed 4K UHD on the big screen
The bigger the screen the greater the difference 4K UHD makes, so on this Hisense 55 inch TV stunner, it's a big difference. With four times the resolution of Full 1080p HD, 4K (UHD) TV offers stunning detail and resolution for totally life-like realism. Even without a native 4K UHD signal, UHD upscaling means that you can scale up an ordinary HD signal to make the best of the screen. Get Netflix 4K or other 4K content and the image just keeps getting better.

Smart performer
Packing a Quad Core processor, the Hisense is a powerful performer with Smart content, too. Connect up to your home network by Ethernet or Wi-Fi and enjoy access to a wide range of apps including favourites such as Netflix, YouTube and Twitter. A built-in web browser and DLNA compatibility lets you browse and stream to your heart's content.

Share content
For seamless integration with your other devices, Anyview Cast and Anyview Stream let you share content from your smartphone, tablet or computer and show it on the big screen.

Fully connected
With four HDMI sockets, the 55M5500 easily copes with the most complex home entertainment systems. Two of these sockets are the latest HDMI 2.0 version with HDCP 2.2, making this TV compatible with the latest UHD Blu-ray (non-HDR playback) and streaming services. Other connections include no fewer than three USB sockets, one of which is the latest USB 3.0 version for a high speed link. Throw in an optical connection for a soundbar/base and you've got everything you need in a 4K TV.

PVR USB
One of the USB sockets lets you connect up a USB memory stick to use as a PVR. PVR stands for Personal Video Recorder and lets you record TV programmes via the set's Electronic Programme Guide. It can also pause live TV - just like a subscription based set-top box.

Fantastic Freeview HD
It might be some way behind 4K, but Freeview HD is still a huge step-up on regular Freeview TV. If you're not using Sky, Virgin, BT or another digital TV provider, Freeview HD is the way to go for free-to-access digital TV through your existing aerial. Compared to standard Freeview, images are far more detailed, with rich colour and enhanced realism.

looks a good set. sadly because of my poxy living room I really only need 40"... could push through to 48" or 49" but really would start to look ridiculous beyond that haha.

hoping some decent smaller sets come down in a price towards spring now

good spot nonetheless :)
#2
also bizarrely, the description you've got from their site says 50" 4K HDR TVs don't come cheaper! when it's clearly 55

Call them up (telesales: 0333 900 0093) and ask if they still have the Hisense 50M3300 in stock, excellent 50" 4K LED TV for only £419 including 6 year warranty! X)

not a bad call.
really wanted to pay under £500 as I only want a 4ktv for ps4pro and Netflix/amazon 4k, and would most likely just want to upgrade in 1 or 2 years.
I don't earn a lot and save to afford my hobby, I work on the basis of saving what I would otherwise have spent on booze after quitting drinking 4 years ago.

Sorry for laziness but are there any distinct advantages over the 55M6600? Parents are looking for a 55" set and will probably only ever watch HD content and use smart features

Yeah it's quite good. Just connect your laptop via HDMI and you can have as many dirty screens / movies as you like.

Curves are fine for singletons, or couples who spoon while watching; but for everyone else it means a slightly distorted picture.
I have a curved gaming monitor, and it is great - I wouldnt touch a curved full size TV though, you have to be exactly 90 degrees from the centre of the screen, or things get increasingly weird.

LG no. Colours are not so good.

Spend a little bit more and get the PANASONIC VIERA TX55DX700
Wonderful image quality and a superb operating system (Firefox OS)
Terrific Full HD upscaling, fantastic colours and a smooth smart TV interface gives Panasonic a huge leg-up.

5 stars ***** review here: http://www.expertreviews.co.uk/tvs-entertainment/tvs/1404075/panasonic-viera-tx-55cx700b-review

I only mentioned it because they claim it's 10bit when it's actually not TRUE 10bit.

The BT shop has the 55" 55M3300 for £478 delivered with standard Hisense warrenty. However Richer sounds has it for £499 with 6 years warrenty so for £22 extra you get 4 more years extra cover.

Anyone know the difference between the 55M3300 and the 55M5500 other than cost?.I would like to buy one but cannot see the difference in performance?

Yes you have a small gaming monitor???not really the same as a 55inch curved tv.The curve on majority is very slight and no you don't have to sit 90 degrees total rubbish.Had my oled 55 curved for a year now and would not swap for flat .Not sure if it creates a better viewing experience but it just looks a premier product not a run of the mill flat tv..

What is your room measurement for the TV if you don't mind me asking. I have a small/ medium room that I am trying to decide what TV size to put in the room. With TV getting thiner and thine this days, I think you may actually get away with slightly bigger TV in a small room with room the TV taking over the room

I have a LARGE gaming monitor; curvature of screens is given in "R", where R is the total radius of the circle of which the screen is a section of, and is not dependant on the size of the screen, currently there are two popular "R" ranges.

If you are not sat square on to any curved screen you will get a distorted image; the further from centre you are, the greater the distortion, both in width and colour/contrast/screen brightness; this is not a personal view, it is physics/maths. How far from centre you can sit before the distortion is too much of a distraction IS down to personal preference though.

The same is true of the viewing distance, ideally you want to be half the same "R" distance from the screen as the curvature; too close/too far and screen distortions start to become apparent. Too close is easier on the eye than too far IMHO, but then I currently sit a bit too close to mine, as I havent got around to fitting a wall mount yet.

No first hand knowledge but i think it is their own in house software and app selection from what i can gather seems to be a bit thin (lacking most UK catchup services)

When we bought our first 49 incher I thought it looked stupidly large in the room, but after a while you get used to it, and now it actually looks a little small; the chimney breast can take a 60 incher at a guess.

Curved is going to be a fad though, just like 3-D comes back every 20 years. If someone wants that level of "immersion", they will go the VR headset route.

If you are not sat square on to any TV you will get a distorted image... curved still work well within a viewing angle of up to 35 degrees (which is a fair bit) and they also maintain their brightness / colour better at an angle then a flat set.

That said, I don't think curved makes sense in anything less than a 60" set and even then it's not for all situations as there are other negatives, for example light reflections tend to be worse and they tend to look worse than flat sets when wall mounted.

The distortion when viewing a flat screen off axis is consistent across the width of the screen, the problem with off axis on a curved screen is that the distortion gets worse, the further from the centre line of the screen; images on one side will be stretched, and on the other side compressed.

I have watched flat screens from 60-70 degrees off axis and not been overly bothered, the same on a curved screen looks terrible - and unwatchable (IMHO).

YMMV but I would find a flat screen at 60-70 degrees really quite unpleasant and fatiguing to watch. My point was that it is often stated that unless you're sitting perfectly in the sweet spot for a curved screen then they're no good - that's nonsense, they're good to about 35 degrees after which flat is definitely better, but 35 degrees covers a lot of living room scenarios.
