It's fairly complicated to explain but I will give it a go. TV manufacturers use precessing technology to give a perceived higher screen refresh rate on standard native 50hz/60hz panels. It's generally marketing tosh and makes little difference to pictures apart from make them darker as black frames are inserted to achieve the 'motion rate' or whatever they market it as. You should be on the look out for genuine native 100hz/200hz panels if you want real 100hz/200hz processing. Such TV models are often marketed with motion rates of 200hz/240hz plus. As a general rule it is unlikely you will ever find a genuine 100hz/120hz panel in these cheap tv's or anything under at least 350 quid. This TV has a 50hz/60hz panel. Also if a TV is made in Turkey it's a vestel set, Slovakia a UMC set and China one of too many companies to list. If you are using the TV with full HD source material then these panels are good value with decent performance, as they will just relay pixel per pixel with no scaling. If using for sub hd material look at the more expensive branded sets. Hope this is of some help.

Actually this is not a Vestel made TV. Its either from UMC in Slovakia or made in China by one of many TV manufacturers.

I was looking at these but have ordered a 50" Finlux instead (http://finlux.co.uk/all-tvs/50-inch-tv-full-hd-1080p-50f6090-t/invt/50f6090-t) - bad choice? I still have time to cancel...

Could somebody explain what the 100hz motion and 50hz processor rate is? Looked online, but don't fully understand. Much appreciated.

The TV's native refresh rate is 50hz, but creates a faux 100hz with a blinking backlight. This doesn't make it as good as a native 60hz set though.

i actually posted a link to this deal on another thread when i bought the tv from currys 2 days ago. I really like it but i notice the HD can be very slightly jumpy when watching the foota ( i assume this is the in-built tuner). I liked the fact it had 3 hdmi slots and plan to use it for gaming. Personally i think its a great deal, no other tv comes close to the price and i plug in my chromcast and suddenly its a smart tv so can't complain. For the record i always have bought samsung or toshiba and had no issues with them but needed a cheap big tv. The new bendy 60" ones look fabulous but i think i will wait until they £400-£500.

The only bad tv i have ever seen was a technika, jvc seem pretty good.

Sharp lc46ld266k not bad alternative for 289 from Richer Sounds with 5 year warranty.

Yes, basic and exactly what I've been looking out for. Don't need smart function or 3D or 4K... Just a half decent HD big screen. Heat!!!

Sorry what I meant to say is check the freeview hd channels for lip syn issues, some sets use incompatible decoders. A Poloroid/Vestel made set went back as it had this issue. Weirdly I only noticed this after watching a program for a bit before the issue occured. The blaupunk umc made set doesnt have this issue. A quick google shows Vestel licensing JVC brand name for the emea market

Seems a good buy, the usual 2 HDMI sockets though, 3 is minimum.

All the discussions about reliability aside, this is very cheap for a 48" set. In the realms of Teknica, Blaupunkt money etc. Personally I wouldnt buy one. But if an old granny needed a set...

Can anyone let me know which companies actually produce their own televisions? Every deal I see on here relates to Vestel etc.

I am after a 50" LED but can live without SMART, 3D and 4K.

Any help would be appreciated.

You want the Samsung UE50H5000 for £399 from Richersounds or the LG 49LB550v same price, same vendor.

Yes, the Fiat-Chrysler group.

LG make their own panels. Smaller Panasonic panels used to be made by LG.

Samsung historically only made their own larger panels and would aquire smaller ones from other vendors.

Not sure about Sony. My information may be some years out of date though so its worth checking again..

However the sets I recommended you are the best in the size / price range in my opinion.
#35
Didn't even realise JVC were still around (or at least operating under their own name)

Last thing I remember them doing was sponsoring Arsenal in the 80s.

Don't know about their TVs, but their VHS players were top-notch back in the day.

FIAT go through phases. Some of their 2000s cars (Stilo in particular) were very much in the mould of the old badly-made rubbish they earned their reputation from.

The Panda-based cars have been very good, although the latest 500 has blotted the copybook somewhat with the well-publicised Euro-6 software faults.

Now they've merged with Chrysler I anticipate another nose-dive in quality in the next few years. It's just the way FIAT are.

Voted hot, just for the hot price and value for money factor.
If you want a high end TV, spend more money.
If you want rock bottom price (budget tv), this is as good as it gets.

I bought my son a 42" finlux, the picture quality is suprisingly good. I'd pick the Finlux over this JVC all day long.
