There was a 4k Toshiba from Costco listed last week for £330. I don't recall many cheaper than that apart from those in the asda toxic sale

Way too expensive OP, sorry.
Toshiba is now a rebadge job (Vestel I think) and you can get a bigger or maybe even 4k Vestel for this kind of price.

Just ordered it for our flat so hoping from the reviews on here it lives up to the expectations. :D
Really happy with this tv, never had a smart tv before so still discovering all the thing it can do, but was easy to set up didn't read instructions as everything came up on the tv, price was good too. Not much more I can say but would recommend. !!

Bought this for £199 7 months ago and it is GREAT.

Highly recommended!
This is my TV and I could not recommend it enough. I had a few problems with a Sharp and a Toshiba. This beats both of those hands down! Sound and visual quality are fantastic.
should i return it faulty when i get to my car with it, or wait till i get home and switch it on. :D heat added just keep your receipt.

People, please don't ask about true 4K at this budget. :D You would never get a true 10bit 4K TV at this price.It will be 8bit but will be absolutely fine for more than 90% of us anyway at this price :D
Hisense do 'real 4K' around this price.
Also, HDR and 4K are totally separate so please don't say that 4K is not possible because 10bit isn't really available at this price.

Why luxor seems like a ghost company. No website no real clue about specs. I got 40 inch one. Doing well. Yet i always try to get more information about them. They seems like a shadow company
Probably simply because its not really a company, just one of Vestel's badges (and from what I can see Vestel's customer support web pages are about as basic as they can get away with).
Luxor? Does it come in a pyramid shaped box?
Wouldnt recommend. Ive had the 50 inch and this one both were returned within 6 months. Motherboard died on 1st headphone part stop working on 2nd. Returning also takes a while as they insist on sending an engineer to confirm the damage before allowing return.

Dang! I've put myself down on the Tesco stock alert for if they bring it back in stock. I'm not surprised it's sold out to be honest.
it told me it was out of stock when I came to pay and it moved it to the saved list, I just clicked move to basket and it went back in and allowed me to pay! They will cancel the order no doubt

Returned one of these this week (albeit with ao.com), had some clouding issues and after putting up with it a couple of months returned it. Turned me off hisense a bit but maybe I just had a bad one. Heat for the price though, cheapest it's been.
I think I have the same.issue, mainly in the bottom half of the screen ? Mainly noticeable in white screened or on panning scenes (especially football)

I had some white clouding around the bottom half mainly, noticeable on dark movies/pictures mostly.
Bought a Hisense 55" and had no end of problems with it, **** build quality and really terrible customer service. Ended up having to rent a TV while they tried to fix mine and its still came back broken... never ever again.
bought this 6 months ago, fantastic product! Friend of mine bought a Sony with the same spec for £1200, but mine totally wins by image quality, response speed...

In terms of Samsung's 2017 range this sits somewhere between the MU9000 and Q8C, it's a much better TV than an MU6500.

Yes I took issue with their customer service and they are proposing to refund the £15 delivery. It's still a hassle of now having to arrange someone to wait for delivery on Friday. I do not have problems with John Lewis and they usually deliver FOC and on time (within 2 working days) even though they don't have a physical store here in Northern Ireland. I don't understand why big merchants like AO etc let the delivery service they use get away with such poor service, especially when it has an adverse effect on their reputation.


Basically....they dont care.

Poor service from AO. TV was scheduled for delivery on Monday past and only got a call from the delivery service late yesterday afternoon and they can only deliver on Friday without any explanation for the delay. First purchase from AO and probably never again especially when I have to pay £15 delivery charge and have people waiting around the house for the delivery the last 2 days
That isnt good at all
I would try and get the delivery charge refunded

Toshiba is a budget brand now?

In TVs yeah, it's a licenced name rather than a Toshiba Product so it comes off the same production line as Celcius, Polaroid, Hitatchi etc. branded products. The electronics company behind them, Vestel, have said they want to make Toshiba their premium brand but whether anything will come of that remains to be seen.

Philips too. They're no longer owned by Philips but they are unique TVs, not rebrands.

Toshiba have been a budget brand for years. Their LCD TV's have all been pretty useless. They were very good back in the day of fat CRT TVs!


Not true the last great Toshiba TV's were the 1080p X and Z series LCD's thats the last time Toshiba was the Toshiba of old and not budget TV's with the name on the front.

Nah I've the house locked down for over 18's so it's more like Minecraft, FIFA17, Rocket League...
Ordered reserved and picked up after seeing this. Set it up and compared to a Tesco one I picked up a short while ago for £189 and its great.
setup was easy / decent full stand although not heavy. Picture was great out the box bezel feels loose and rattles a bit and the remote is as pointy as a pointy thing and worry it will break in the middle but so much better first impressions than the blaupunkt. recording and pause are asking for a storage device which I expected. Freeview play looks like its just links to iplayer and hubs but will read the nice 50 page UK manual. Very impressed.

Why spend £249 on a telly when I can buy a Polaroid telly from Asda for half the price???


I am after a 32inch smart TV. Cheapest on Argos is £199.99?
Could you share the link please??
I have bought two of these tv's (one for a spare bedroom, another for a second room at my parent's). The picture and sound quality is really good. However, the processing power is not - changing channel will take a few seconds and smart features are quite slow, but work fine when you get into it. If pushing a button on the remote and waiting a few seconds for tv to action it bothers you, this won't be the tv for you!

I said check stores - it's oos online but stores may have them.

"if it's faulty..." have you ever tried ?
RoosterNo1
please read their 18th century returns policy before buying anything... :(

I keep seeing this for AO and really don't understand the issue.

If it's faulty you can return it no problems, and I have no sympathy for someone who would order an enormous boxed, big TV just to have a nosey at it and decide whether or not to keep...

If you want to peruse it first, get off your ar5e and go and look in a shop!

Can I also add, that the type of people who would moan about this, are no doubt the same who would go bananas if they ordered one and received a repackaged returned unit! Do you think AO should give you a 100% refund, and then send the TVs to be crushed??
I have a techwood and the ‘smart’ is about as good as a 1998 Nokia, false advertising unless you want all the apps in Turkish.
There are deals and there is cheap, cheap is not a deal, cheap is when you get what you pay for then realise you should have spent the extra in the 1st place to get one that wasn't cheap.
I'm not saying go spend £2,000, I'm saying £450 is where the lower middle range of 4k starts, anything less and you really are just buying cheap and nasty. want upper middle range? that's more like £750
Reviews aside, this is an awful company to deal with.... they cold call you to flog insurance, and please read their 18th century returns policy before buying anything... :(

I have to say I'm pleased with this tv. Virgin v6 box and ps4 look great! HDR 10 worked without any update with my ps4. Youtube 4k stuff looks amazing.

Hi, Does anyone know what the viewing angle is like on this model? I have an L shaped seating arrangement in my living room.

Also, those of you who returned this TV could you please let me know which 43" TV you ended up buying instead?

Thanks!
Painkiller
Bought this exact model last week. The TV stops accepting some commands from the remote when using interactive services so, for example, when trying to find nursery rhymes for my nephew on Ketchup TV, none of the arrow buttons or the ok button worked properly so we couldn't select anything to play.
HDR is on HDMI 3 & 4

Surely you will have missed up the TV if you used ketchup on it

Depends if you want new or second hand? if the Samsung has had a new screen already its not looking good for it, i bought one of these for my daughter and must say its fantastic in this price range, good blacks and viewing angles and well made, i have had 4 KS7000 tvs in the last 6 months and have had problems :( be it the back coming unstuck or dead pixels and even severe stuttering on standard tv, finally gave up on them.

I believe it is a RGBW pixel structure and therefore a faux 4khttp://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/rgbw-201510084189.htm


This is NOT one of those fake 4K tvs its uses a MVA panel and not an IPS one, it is one of the better mid range TVs out there Excellent blacks and good viewing angles.

How's the 3d on these? And yes, I realise it's dead tech now but like the option of having it.

Seriously, I'm into 3D and I've demoed many TV's in the last 5 years. Every single Active shutter 3DTV has been rubbish. If you want 3D that doesn't suffer crosstalk or give you headaches, buy the, (way more expensive,) LG OLED C6.


yep. have this tv myself and the 3d is terrible. plenty cross talk and no amount of firmware updates have made it any better

It's also worth contacting Hisense direct over the phone. They're very helpful.

hi, thanks for the reply.

judging by avforums, hisense customer support mostly ignores firmware querys, and even then, will send links to wrong firmware.

i dont wanna be a pain, but your help would be much appreciated, i await the weekend with bated breath !

Is the ch. list menu the side menu that comes up when you press ok when watching freeview?

Just tried it and it is a lot faster for looking for a channel!
Bought mine in January from Argos. Extremely happy with the quality and the additional content/apps since the recent update. Since buying the tv has frozen once, this was the day after the update and hasn't done it since. Good quality speakers compared to many 4K panels, a 'weighty' and durable remote and settings for gaming make it well worth the money. As somebody mentioned above there is lag on the freeview epg menu but there is zero lag if you use ch. list menu instead. For an entry level 4K you certainly won't get any better in my opinion.

Been checking around for comparable deals and for under £400 the options are hisense, second hand or down to 1080p. I don't understand how they're selling so cheap which is my main concern but heat added. I would buy if I wasn't holding out for Amazon prime day next month.


These are their 2016 Models AV Forums says the 2017 Models which are out now are comparable with the Big brands in some aspects better, they have an Upgraded OS -different interface ,newly designed remotes ,features etc.. guess that's why these are going cheap clearance i guess,
Ive got a Hisense compares well with the LG i have got think the picture quality is better on the Hisense just some minor back light bleeding issues audio too seems to be better ,but to be honest the LG is also a Mid range set overall slightly better than the Hisense but was more money .

as for the bigdeal person certainly has some issues , looks like he/she wants to always get the last word in might as well let it be lest tantrums be thrown XD . ignore list it is

PMSL at your lack of technical knowledge!

What Atmos content exactly are you going to be outputting direct from the TV into a receiver then?
Atmos on a BluRay/4K disc?
Broadcast Atmos from BT Sport?
Anyone with an audio setup good enough to really care about Atmos would have both of those devices connected directly to to an AV receiver...not conencted to the Tv with audio via ARC
And as for connecting to a soundbar as someone suggested....oh yeah Atmos through a soundbar...PMSL again


the new hdmi standard allows for full hd and object based audio via arc (EARC) so it's not all that crazy an idea, although I don't believe this set supports this at this time.

Technically there are quite a few improvements. A very good guide to the engineering changes can be found int he following technical review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9OvPfPd8s0

You will find that you pay a premium for this years TV's, but the LG B7 is the entry level model that sports the same screen as the wallpaper thin W7. I have compared the 2016 model and the B& and ended up buying the B7 as the improvements are worth it.

Heat for the price but just be aware:

"On the subject of brightness, it was a little surprising to learn that despite being a relatively premium 4K and HDR-ready LCD model, the EX750 is rated to deliver only around 550 nits of peak brightness. This falls way short of the 1,000-nit peaks demanded by the current Ultra HD Premium recommended specifications."

Cold for curved, hot for price.


Yawn.
I have a curved TV, bought after side by side comparison of a flat model. I must say you get image depth in a curved TV and picture look more realistic compared to flat. There can be loss of viewing angle but for me it was not much of a concern.
Cold for curved, hot for price.

freeview logoIntroducing Freeview

Freeview was the first digital TV platform in the UK, taking on the mantle from terrestrial TV and offering programming from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5. The range of channels on offer has expanded since it started in 2002, and Freeview has also added Smart TV and HD capabilities but it remains totally free. Here's what you need to know to get started.

Freeview: Digital TV at the Lowest Possible Price

TV used to be simple. You just purchased a set and hooked it up to an aerial, and you would have access to the four (or five) main UK channels, but nothing more. When satellite TV came about in the 1980s, things started to change. If you had the money, you could access a range of new channels featuring movies, sport, news, shopping, documentaries and drama.

However, it was the advent of digital TV in the mid to late 1990s that changed everything. Suddenly, UK homes could receive hundreds of channels and use small boxes to call up menus with all the information they could ever need. Programs could also be saved for later, doing away with video cassettes, which have no faded from memory.

Freeview emerged as one of the most popular ways to access digital TV. Founded in 2002, it was the product of an alliance between the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Sky and transmission companies. The idea was that Freeview would be the natural successor to old-style terrestrial television, placing a basic range of digital channels within reach of every single TV owner in the country.

The selection of channels on offer from Freeview has steadily expanded until, as of 2014, the service could offer 60 digital channels and 15 HD channels, along with 25 digital radio stations as well as text services.

Since 2008, every single new TV sold in the UK has included Freeview as part of its software, although owners of older TVs need to purchase a Freeview Box to access the service. However, not all new TVs are equipped to receive Freeview HD, which is separate from standard Freeview.

Why Would You Need to Use Freeview Anyway?

Freeview is the leading free means of accessing digital TV in the UK, so if you are keen to watch major channels but don’t want to pay for boxes from providers like Sky or BT, it’s a good option to go for. The range of channels may not include many premium channels from those other broadcasters, but it is still fairly impressive, with options including:

  • The BBC iPlayer; the BBC BBC’s online streaming service, which provides access to almost all of the corporation’s content from the past few weeks and plenty of archival shows as well, and some exclusives that can only be seen on iPlayer.
  • The ITV Hub’s Features channels like ITV, ITV2, ITV3, ITVBe, ITV4 and CITV and shows ITV programs for 30 days after their initial broadcast.
  • All 4’s; Channel 4’s video on demand service, featuring most recent content from Channel 4, Film4, E4 and More4, which is made available for 30 days after its initial broadcast.
  • Demand 5’s Channel 5’s video on demand service (also known as My5), including some high-profile US imports like House or Grey’s Anatomy. Offers Channel 5 shows for 30 days after broadcast.
  • UKTV Play’s Features programs broadcast by UKTV channels, which include Alibi, Dave, Drama, Eden, Gold, Good Food, Home, Really, W and Yesterday.

As well as these streaming services, Freeview also includes plenty of other digital channels like QVC, Ideal World, Spike, MovieMix, R&C, Quest, the Travel Channel, Challenge, True Crime, Viva, CBS Action, TBN, CBS Reality, TruTV, the Horror Channel, Talking Pictures, Blaze and the Craft Channel.

You can also access new services like Russia Today, Al Jazeera, BBC News 24, BBC Parliament, Sky News and Africa Live.

Freeview: TV the Other Way

Using Freeview Play

All of Freeview’s shows and channels can be accessed via a built-in TV guide app called Freeview Play, which also makes it easy to store and schedule recordings, set playlists, access archived TV shows and browse future schedules.

However, while all TVs made since 2008 have included Freeview as part of the package, they have not included compatibility with Freeview Play. Freeview themselves note that most 2016 TVs still lack the ability to use the service, although all TVs made by Panasonic, LG, JVC, Finlux and Humax will include it.

To access Freeview Play you need to connect your TV set to a broadband internet service at no extra cost beyond the price of broadband. You will also need to have an aerial connected to the back of your TV. If everything looks good, you should find that your TV automatically tunes into Freeview Play when it turns on.

Remember, only Freeview Play compatible TVs can access this feature, so it might be necessary to upgrade your TV if you want the free on-demand digital channels that Freeview provides.

Different Versions of Freeview

Freeview’s services come under a number of different packages, with the main options including:

  • Freeview Play: As discussed above, Freeview Play allows you to download older shows and scroll through current shows via an easy to use TV guide app, and it’s all free of charge.
  • Freeview HD: Provides access to 15 HD channels carried by the Freeview service, including BBC 1 & 2, 4 HD, 5 HD and ITV HD.

What Kinds of Boxes Are Needed to Get Freeview Up and Running?

Freeview boxes come in a variety of models, with different options for HD and standard TVs, and the added functionality of Freeview+ boxes, so it’s important to choose the right one for your needs. Here are the options you’ll have to choose from:

  • Standard Freeview Boxes: The default option for many Freeview customers (and the cheapest), basic boxes are essentially just digital TV tuners that hook you up to the channels offered by Freeview but do very little else.
  • Freeview+ Boxes: Designed to work with Freeview’s standard programming, boxes are more sophisticated than other models and enable users to rewind, pause and record shows with ease. They also allow you to carry out series link recordings, making it much easier to watch whole seasons of shows and queue up recordings so that you don’t miss a thing.
  • Freeview HD box: Specialist Freeview HD recorders are available that allow users to access the range of HD channels available from the Freeview network, so it’s basically an HD tuner. Not all HD recorders have this capability, so double check that the model you are looking at has Freeview HD compatibility.
  • Freeview+ HD Boxes: A step up from standard Freeview HD boxes, Freeview+ HD boxes allow you to record, rewind and pause shows and to queue up series for viewing at your leisure.
  • Standard Freeview+ boxes with upscaling capabilities: Some Freeview+ boxes don’t offer HD quality images but can still access Freeview’s HD channels via a technique called ‘upscaling’ which boosts the pixel resolution of images. You’ll need an HDMI cable to enjoy the advantages, but this type of box can be a cheaper alternative to buying a true HD TV.

Connecting a Freeview Box: Things to Consider

Before you can access Freeview’s channels, you will need to ensure that your TV and box can connect to the system. To do so, you will need to connect your TV to an aerial, which is best placed outdoors and has to have a functioning connection to the aerial point in your TV room.

For most people, this isn’t a huge problem, as Freeview works just fine with existing TV aerials. However, in some cases, users discover that their aerial is malfunctioning, resulting in a grainy image when they turn their Freeview box on. In those instances, the best option is to bring in a professional aerial installer to iron out the problems.

When you have an aerial connected properly, all that is needed is a Freeview compatible TV. You should be able to access free digital channels automatically. If you don’t have a compatible TV, you’ll need a Freeview or Freeview+ Box. Boxes are also needed if you intend to record shows to watch later.

If you have a satellite dish (from a previous Sky subscription, for example), unfortunately you can't use it to access Freeview's services. You'll need to install an aerial before you can get started.

Freeview Boxes: Typical Specifications

Not all Freeview boxes are alike, and there are some key specifications that buyers should keep in mind. For example, you might want to check:

  • Storage: How much video content your box can hold at any one time. At the low end of the market, you can find boxes with as little as 100GB of capacity, though 250GB or 500GB are standard. If you are a TV junkie and store a lot of series at the same time, you may want to look for something roomier, with 2TB models on the market as well. You can even find boxes that allow you to connect external hard drives, essentially making your storage capacity limitless.
  • Smart options: Some modern Freeview boxes are ‘smart’, which means they have many more ways of interacting with other devices. For instance, they may have sockets for USB flash sticks or SD cards, more web functionality to access services like Netflix, Spotify or YouTube.
  • Ports: Connectivity is another vital spec to consider. Most boxes have one or more SCART ports to hook up with TVs, it might also be handy to have USB sockets and HDMI ports for streaming digital content. Many boxes also have Bluetooth and Wi-fi connectivity, but not all of them, so look closely if you intend to connect your Freeview box up to other devices in the home.
  • Audio & Freeview boxes don’t just deal with HD and standard visuals. They also have an impact on the sound quality of the TV and movies you watch. Look for systems with Dolby Digital Plus for home cinema standard sound quality.

What to Think About Before Buying Freeview

Freeview is a great option if you want to access some of the UK’s favourite TV channels and record shows for later. It has a pretty impressive range of channels for a free service, an easy to use interface and doesn’t cost a thing, which is why millions of people choose to use it.

However, before you make a purchase, it’s worth thinking about which setup works best for you. You could go for a basic Freeview box and connect it to an existing TV if all you want is recordable content from BBC, ITV, Channel 4 etc.

Then again, Freeview HD offers the same selection of channels and the opportunity to enjoy movies, dramas and documentaries in incredibly high resolution. HD TVs are more expensive than standard sets, but you can defray some of the costs of upgrading by sourcing your TV content via Freeview instead of taking out BT or Sky subscriptions.

So think about whether you simply want to get Freeview working, or whether it’s time to upgrade your entire TV watching setup. There are plenty of deals on HD TVs at HotUKDeals, and many of them have Freeview HD included as standard.

Pros and Cons of Freeview

Freeview is free, offers plenty of entertainment and is easy to use, but it has its downsides. Most importantly, the range of channels suffers in comparison to other broadcasters like Sky and BT. If you love sport, you’ll probably be willing to pay extra to subscribe to BT Sport or Sky Sports, as Freeview offers hardly any sporting content.

The same almost applies to movies. While you can find Film4 on Freeview, you won’t find Sky Movies, which offers a massive array of films every week. Then again, with Smart Freeview boxes that can connect to wi-fi networks, you can access streaming services like Netflix, Blinkbox and Amazon Video, all of which host plenty of movies, so it’s not a total disaster. Freeview can actually work as an economical tool for movie buffs.

Freeview also only offers boxes and TV services, but when you take out Virgin or BT TV subscriptions, much more can be injected into the mix. For example, you can get deals on BT landlines and TV at the same time, which can be a good option for some households. It’s definitely something to think about, but may not be a deal breaker.

The fact is that Freeview offers a good entertainment solution for millions of households. There’s no better way to access the core British TV channels for free, and with services like Freeview HD and Freeview Play, Freeview competes well with the products on offer from other TV companies.

How and When to Make A Freeview Purchase

Customers don’t tend to buy Freeview on its own. Most of the offers you’ll find at HotUKDeals are for TVs with Freeview functionality. So, if you want access to Freeview HD, look for TVs with Freeview HD in their list of specifications. You’ll find a wide range of suitable products at retailers like Currys, Argos and John Lewis as well as eBay and Amazon sellers.

You can also head to the same retailers for Freeview and Freeview compatible boxes (like NOW TV), and there are often combo deals featuring boxes and TVs to be had as well.

The best time to check for deals is around Black Friday in November and the January Sales, when TVs are often slashed in price, but big reductions are being announced all the time. With 4K TVs being eased into the mainstream, you can often find savings on older HD TVs, with Freeview as part of the bundle.
