Hisense H49M3000 49" Smart 4K Ultra HD TV - Black - Here - £341.10
Hisense H43M3000 43" Smart 4K Ultra HD TV - Black Here - £296.10 (I think the cheapest it's ever been now)

Brill specs on these two models. Very similar all round apart from the obvious screen size differences there is just the slight difference in speaker output. The 49" has 16 Watt speakers whereas the 43" carries 14 Watt speakers. I'm guessing most folks here won't be overly fussed about that and many will probably use their own speaker set up.

Hisense are really churning out some decent sets lately, it's pretty hard to turn them down after looking at reviews as well. I used to have one back in 2008ish and at that point you very rarely saw them around. It lasted for ages, we only upgraded because we wanted a bigger screen. Comes with 2 Year Manufacturers warranty to boot, again... another plus point for sure.

Does anybody know if the 49" is on demo anywhere? Just want to have a look and play considering sending it back if it's garbage looks like a no go.

John Lewis sell a limited HiSense range, but I took a punt on it when it was £354 the other day with a code, it gets delivered monday. It seems to get decent enough reviews on the AVForums

Cheers. Just phoned my local one and they only have the 65" in store.

I have a 40" Hisense as my main monitor. It's bloody huge!!

4K @ 60Hz. The only downside is there is a very slight, I am now used to it, delay with the mouse. I upgraded the firmware, use Game mode, bought a cheapish multi dpi mouse and played around with the settings in Windows until I found a setting I could live with. Didn't take long.

I don't play games on it so I have no idea how they play, but for general day to day use it is brilliant. Deadpool 4k was pretty spectaclar.
#13
Check what is chroma 4:2:2, because m3300 currently supports only this (red text is pain to read). Btw 50" is way to big to use as main monitor, imho. Maybe curved would be a bit better, but still not sure.. 40" must be perfect ;)

I will stick a quick review up on Monday when I get mine. Which I paid £352 for.

It's for the man cave and was the best price to spec ration I could find.

Mainly for Xbox one, Kodi and plex media consumption. But will like it to my PC for a second screen.
#15
Ordered the 49" at £341, thanks op

I swore I wasn't going to buy from Ao due to their silly returns policy of up to 50% restocking fee if you open the box ! But surely this is illegal, i have ordered with my credit card so hope they cans help if I have issues.

1.5% quidco too.

You can only use one voucher on the order. Which is worth more than £20

I've been keeping my eye on the Hisense h50m3300 but is there much difference between that and the 49" here? all I can see is the refresh rates of 800 vs 60. Which should I pull the trigger on?

Entirely pointless, the HDR update if it existed would not conform to Ultra HD Premium standard anyway, no way it would, or this would be bargain of the decade. Consumers are starting to be aware of HDR and think this acronym means something if it's printed on the box, it means nothing unless it conforms to an accepted standard.

HDR10 is out of date. Dolby vision FTW. Oh wait, punters getting caught in a format war.....betamax/vhs, bluray/hd-dvd anyone. I would wait to see which format prevails, or if you want a bit of assurance - go with dolby as the higher spec.

Just a note of caution, a different one, re the HDR. If you look through the various threads the "firmware update" has been about a month away for about three months. I mean, it's just a computer program. That's all it is. Why is it taking this amount of time to come out?!

Does anyone have these sets with BT UHD? Read some posts that they lose the secure connection and box and TV have to be rebooted - truth or nonsense?!

Prob would have gone for the 49" however not too fond of AO return policy, can't be dealing with the hassle.

When I ordered mine at around 6pm today, the earliest delivery date was saying Sunday 11th.

So ordered and noticed I could change the date on the tracking page ( after you pay), it let me choose tomorrow (10th) and it's been loaded in the van already

Just thought I'd point this out Incase it helps anyone else.

Got the 55" version last week, very impressed so far. Only gripe is the viewing angles are not great, look washed out even if you are at a slight angle. My 10 year old plasma had excellent viewing angles.

I have no such issue with mine, and definately no worse than any other VA Panel the wider you go.

If I get a chance over the weekend I will try to post what settings I have so you can compare somewhat, though I do appreciate everyone has different needs in this respect.

On the spec sheet the only difference is that the m3300's have their version of AirPlay/equivalent built in to the semi-smart features. IIRC! But you wouldn't ever buy a TV to use smart features due to limitations anyway, you would stick a smart device into it :)

Watch out for clouding on this TV. Reviews from amazon-

"Purchased this tv when it was first introduced. It is 4K and great specs, everything seems to work fine.

However, it has horrible backlight clouding. (I have tried two, and both had the same issue) noticible on dark scene and at night, enough so that it really bothered me to send it back. Also it does have some issues with upscaling some content and can become very noisy."

"Ordered the 49" version, first one arrived with a cracked screen which was disappointing, Amazon, to their credit, were able to organise the courier to uplift the damaged set and drop off a replacement. Unfortunately i'm now requesting a refund on the 2nd tv for these reasons:

1). The backlight clouding on darker images is pretty horrendous tbh, if you're a horror movie aficionado then steer clear.
2). One of the hdmi ports doesn't function correctly.
3). Dark blemish under the screen near the centre of the tv, very noticeable when watching the footy.

It's a shame, the actual quality of picture through SkyHD is excellent but the backlight clouding alone kills it for me. Guess i'll be forking out a bit more and going back to Samsung - you get what you pay for.

Edit - just to add, Amazon's customer service was fantastic during the process even if the product wasn't."

Thanks, could you pm me your settings please. I still think it's a great TV for the money. 4k samples I downloaded look fantastic. Planning to get a nvidia shield too.

Plex is already installed in the APP's of this TV, takes 30 seconds to activate!

Yes will do, don't know at what time but I will do it when I get the chance.

4K on the 55" looks absolutely brilliant and I don't have any screen issues as described above, not seen any clouding at all and the footy looks fab, even if it is just skyhd..

Also it does have some issues with upscaling some content and can become very noisy
Upscaling is always going to be an issue with 4K TV's, some channels look fine upscaled and some others look truely awful*, then again the same channels looked bad on my old Sammy..

* - UK Gold, W,Tru TV, etc..

The firmware updates are scheduled for Q4, so anytime soon or before the end of the year.

I believe that the US equivalent sets already have the updates, so probably not far away.

Thanks... Good news re: US sets... If you look back through forums you will see when the set was launched Hisense were telling customers it was Q3, then "September" and now Q4... You see my point! :) but hopefully it will come.

Would you recommend this over the samsung KU6400 40", or should I pay that extra 80£ and stick with decent panel, will only use in bedroom for streaming mainly?
#40
Ordered the 49" last night at 6pm, arrived today at 7am! Can't fault the service.

Tv is great, manufactured in July 2016 (sticker on back) , HDR via usb is stunning

I also have a nvidia shield and YouTube 4K is great too, using hdmi 3 for this.

Will be using it for kodi and Amazon mainly.

All settings are default. Would be good to see some decent settings from owners? Thanks!
