I posted this 40" on here last week from Costco @ £299 offer is still on. I ordered but returned it as picture quality was very poor, Costco also have 5 year guarantee included on TVs

Terrible picture quality on these. Toshiba brand licenced to a Turkish screen maker. Don't waste your money.

Like many sets, all it requires is some adjustment of settings to get a picture that is just fine.

All this continuous talk of a set being made by Vestel automatically being poor is just stupid.

If they were that bad then over time, it would have become apparent and they would no longer be purchased and have gone out of business.

This. If you buy a TV on the cheaper end of the spectrum you have to be prepared to do some background reading and spend some time to get the picture how you want it across your various sources. Not saying those above haven't done so, but the idea that the picture will be so bad you'd send it back, on a 4k screen, is baffling to me.

Yes.

With a few simple adjustments, SD looks just fine, clear and without issues on my cheap 48" 4k TV.

Also had a vestel that didn't even break sweat in 5 years, without a single problem in all that time.

TCB 7.35% possibly making this near enough only £300 and there's 3 years warranty included too via registration.

They've outsourced their budget TV models to Vestel for more than 4 years now so no great surprise and perhaps their higher end models are also Vestel now (I don't know)

As said above, it is possible to get budget TV's to give reasonable results, usually you need to turn OFF all the supposed picture enhancements (like sport mode, noise reduction, motion trickery etc) and bring down brightness, colour, contrast, backlight to sensible levels (eg not 100%)

The key to buying anything these days is to research the product and not buy purely based on brand name. Same for cars, washing machines, cookers, almost any product really.

I have this TV and when I turned it on I thought I havd made a mistake (due to the poor picture), but once I fiddled with the settings it is fine.

Could anyone let me know what settings they have as I think this would help people set up the tv and also let me know if I could improve the picture even more? cheers

I bought this TV when it was £325 a few weeks back expecting it to be rubbish - however it is fine, as good as the 49" Sony 4K TV I already owned at a fraction of the price.

There will always be those that do not like the look of the picture / the sound / the remote / the brand / or even the cardboard box it comes in!

Sigh :-( , such is life.

If you pay a Dacia price do you expect to get a Ferrari? The same is true with TVs. For the money this is simply a great TV however the back panel has a slight angle to it which makes the TV tilt backwards at the top on some mounts - I can live with this.

I picked one of these up yesterday after ordering online (Quidco made it down to £299)
was sceptical at first due to the price, but plugged it in and the picture is amazing! haven't tested the 4K yet as only used tv and a DVD, but a bargain for the price even if not 4K!!
