No 4k and being priced at £799 it doesn't seem like a very decent deal.

These tvs are unlikely to be surplus or end of line. Not even available second hand on Amazon yet. First reviewed What Hi Fi in June 2016 so not that old. I have a similar Sony tv . Fantastic picture but takes ages to get the picture just right. Came with a 5 year warranty. Would I chance a graded set even if it was £200 cheaper. I dont think so.
The linked review is dated June 2015, so it is relatively old for this price point.

Verdict
The Sony KDL-65W855C is a tempting proposition. It’s not class-leading stuff, but we’re impressed with its blend of quality, features and price.
If you’re not fussed about the latest bells and whistles, or you’re happy to wait until the dust settles on the latest format war, this is a great way to get a 65in screen for less than you might expect

Graded Stock
"Graded" televisions are items that High Street retailers can't sell on for various reasons. This may be because the TVs are surplus stock, end of line/discontined models, 30 day customer returns, unwanted gifts, or items with damaged packaging.

When the TVs come into us at Electronic World they are technically tested, processed, repackaged and offered for sale. Before sale, all televisions undergo a comprehensive quality control process by our engineers. In the majority of cases the item will be supplied with its original packaging and will be "as new" - the items we sell are not used. If the original packaging is not supplied we will supply other secure packaging to keep the TV well protected in transit.

All TVs sold on this website carry a 12 month 'return to base' warranty provided by ourselves (unless otherwise stated). Our guarantee on all of our products demonstrates our confidence in each and every product we sell. Upon collection the TV is unwrapped and you are given a demonstration of the TV for your peace of mind. This really is an amazing way to save hundreds off "Brand New" prices without sacrificing any of the quality or performance!

I am not sure but these record only in CIF nearly all channels, so not that much 1080p?
Hardly a doomsday scenario, we've had at least two cameras on our two analogue systems fail with a short, or near short, one got extremely hot and also toasted its power supply, fortunately it was only a 1 amp supply or it might have melted the cabling too. These were crap picture quality, but by no means cheap cameras.

We've also had a thief put a crowbar through a dome.

All our cameras and dvrs are independently powered. I'd assumed that any decent POE IP system would have all its ports protected against shorts, to stop the NVR going down, but maybe I'm wrong?
Nope, just one hole slightly larger than one BNC connector. The wires of these kits are thin and four of them are probably not much thicker than two decent Ethernet cables.

As for reliability, I installed a 700TVL kit around 5 years ago. It used these 'crap unreliable cables'. Have upgraded the DVR and the cameras to Full HD 3MP Hikvisons using the same cabling. Picture is perfect. Similar story at a friend's.

Also a POE camera system would suffer the same fate you described in your doomsday scenario.
And four of those things would need a yet larger hole, so I don't get your point, plus with ethernet you have the option of using a poe switch and running fewer cables. I would probably throw a pre-wired cable like that out and use separate power and coax cables or look for some good shotgun style stuff as it would be easier to install unless you are just pining it around the wall. Besides a cable like that is quite likely to be unreliable aluminium crap.

Another issue to bare in mind when sharing a power supply with multiple cameras is if one cable or camera is shorted either by a fault or being attacked by a thief, the whole lot goes down, plus the dvr if you've wired that to it too, unless each camera is powered from a separate current limited port rather than using a crude splitter.

Gosh the drama
No I'm not confusing the ends. One type, THE ONE IN THE OP, has two plugs, BNC and 3.5mm jack, the other type, IP / rj45 has one rj45 plug. I hope no one remains confused.
Right, so one cable, not two, is about the two connectors now. And not five power bricks, just two and possibly one if you need. Glad you finally cleared that up.
Two cables. Two plugs.
Two power bricks. Confirmed by you.
Let me know if you need me to explain anything else you've said to you.
One cable. Maybe you need help to understand, some things are a touch difficult to grasp, I get that, so I'll provide a picture to help you visualise it.http://thumbs1.picclick.com/d/l400/pict/122117176568_/BNC-RCA-Audio-Video-Power-Extension-Cable-DVR.jpg
As for the power supply, well, seeing as you're failing to understand the difference between a single cable with two connectors and two cables with two connectors, it's probably pointless trying to explain voltage/amps as well.
With a cable like that, you are either going to have to drill holes big enough to accommodate the bnc plug or face a fair bit of hassle re-terminating the cable if you cut it off before the plastic splitter to fit through a neat small hole. crimping a plug on networking cables is relatively trivial and the cable is probably thinner too.

Four decent quality Ethernet cables would probably need the same size hole as these cables would need. Either way, you need to drill a hole, so it's a mute point. As for it being relatively trivial, I would suspect not for most people who are looking at these type of kits.

interested to know why cold?

Originally, this deal was posted twice
QuirkyKuboid
Ordered, thanks OP! I really don't understand why this is cold. Great spec machine for the price including the John Lewis guarantee. I would much prefer greater storage capacity over the speed advantage of an SSD, and according to the website the optical drive supports blu-ray discs which seems to be quite hard to find in a laptop (the ones I've looked at anyway).
Hope I don't offend anyone, but it's quite annoying to see the laptop deal threads littered with comments (and presumably voted cold) such as "not full hd", "no ssd" or "you can get better for the price" with no supporting information as to where one can purchase the better deal (because the deal no longer exists). The trend for prices is surely upwards with the expected rise in inflation, so I doubt the amazing deals of the past are likely to be repeated any time soon.
By all means, leave a comment if a laptop is lacking in some way, but (IMO) a deal shouldn't be voted cold if the price point doesn't warrant it. The important thing is that people know what they are buying and they can make their own decision over whether they need the extra / missing features or not.

This is a good laptop and at a good price but buying this for gaming is just plain stupid. Reduce resolution and details? I am still yet too see an lcd display that looks ok in non native res, add reduced details? Nope.
​In your opinion, what generation of game is this going to be able to handle? I'm a console gamer, so that's what I mean by generation.
If need be, could it be made more capable with different graphic cards/memory?
just my opinion, in fullhd, none bar the undemanding... and old ...and well optimised i.e.half life 2. it wont handle Just Cause 2 in fullhd and this was 2010 game, wont cope with diablo 3.This is NOT gaming laptop in the slightest.


​To be honest with you, I've played every Ps3 and Xbox 360 game that I want to, so the lack of power doesn't bother me.

I'm quite looking forward to trying games like Total War 2, X2, etc.

Should I choose to, could I add a different graphics card later on?
There is a chance this may become available again as the same company have the same item on Ebay - albeit at £370

The same laptop is for sale at PCWorld (business) for over £500. Seems a decent price. Mine is still 'pending'.

Seems the last couple of deals for this model have gone cold but I don't understand why? Problems with this model or do people think it should be down at £500 by now?
Either way it'll be a while till I replace my 50" full HD plasma that cost £450 ;D
Last couple of deals have been warm. It all depends on the price. Those deals were both below £900 and hence why this is going cold. To be fair the OP did acknowledge this in the first post.
Another problem is that you can buy some very good 4k TVs of the same size for a lot less than this. Not quite such a good picture as this one, but the 4k label is winning people over even though there is still only limited 4k content.
Biggest issue with 4k TVs though is the **** backlight.

Sharp TVs in Europe are made under license by UMC as are Blaupunkt I believe, might give you an idea of the quality to expect and to confuse matters further in the U.S Sharp is part of the Hisense brand.
So is this bad or simply an indication of the quality not being guaranteed? I had a look and older 'Sharp' TVs over the last couple of years have very good customer reviews so that is something I suppose.
Sharp's in-house manufactured TV's were quality until they sold their European TV operation to UMC in early 2015 - especially their bigger examples. They were well made, with quality components and often over engineered but they couldn't compete with the likes of LG, Samsung and even Vestel churning out budget TV's, basically there was no profit in TV manufacturing for Sharp.
UMC TV's are better than Vestel but they're basically a collection of cheap generic parts (all made in China) and will likely not last past the two year mark.
I'd be interested how you've come to the conclusion that UMC are better than Vestel, what evidence do you have to support it? Have you actually seen the Vestel factory its pretty much state of the art in Europe and even assemble their own panels. Vestel claim the lowest DOA rates in Europe. Check out AVforums just to see how good top end branded tv's do. I don't think you can simply claim Vestel are worse. Panasonic has vestel based models in their range, entry level large sets and small screen sets and remain the most reliable brand according to Which. Technika was one of the worst performers according to Which and are UMC. Don't get me wrong I'm not stating its a black and white situation but when you look on AVforums you see many top brands with lots of issues and returns. The current flagship under £1000 is the Samsung KS7000 range and seem to have major issues. I've got a Vestel made Finlux set and its brilliant, my mother has a UMC bedroom set and its basic but gets the job done. Both are fit for purchase and have shown themselves to be reliable.
This is a thread about Sharp tv's and when they made their own CRT sets in Spain they were the least reliable CRT sets you could buy according to Which many years ago they then stopped production and used Vestel for their CRT sets just before LCDs came in and there was a huge improvement in reliability. I've still got an old Vestel 21" CRT Hitachi set going strong without issues.
Nope, I've not seen the inside of a Vestel or UMC factory but I have seen and worked on the innards of the product they produce.
You only have to read the reviews on Vestel made TV's - Like the Techwoods, DigiHome and low end Panasonics to see they all have issues out of the Box. Their current 4K offerings 48-55" all buzz like mad when you lower the backlight basically because Vestel opted to use a cheap transformer. On their backlit (not the edge lit) models they now try and use as few LED's as possible so they drive the few they install harder, brighter so they fail prematurely. I've poked around a few Vestel's both working and nonworking and to me they're designed to fail and built to as cheaply as possible - Electronically, they're designed terribly using components at or very near their rated limit. UMC on the other hand use off the shelf boards which are better designed and more reliable, also easier to fix in my opinion. This is reason I rate UMC over Vestel when it comes to TV's.
I prefer to go with the real statistics of a wide range of reviews and the reliability ratings of 10s of thousands of people. If you are a service engineer how on earth can you form an opinion without working out the ratio of failed sets to working. Vestel had something like 40% of the lcd market in the UK a few years ago and the rest of it was shared by many other brands. Clearly as a service engineer you were likely to see more. Some service engineer forums have stated UMC as worse. I understand DOA is different to long term reliability.
My 4k vestel tv doesn't buzz at all and I often use it silently as a pc monitor when web browsing. It's faultless and fast in operation.
You only have to look at a page like this which is full of vestel tv's to see end users are generally very pleased with their sets.http://www.argos.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Browse?storeId=10151&langId=110&catalogId=25051&mRR=true&c_1=1%7Ccategory_root%7CTechnology%7C33006169&c_2=2%7C33006169%7CTelevisions+and+accessories%7C33008651&c_3=3%7Ccat_33008651%7CTelevisions%7C33017148&r_001=1%7CBrands%7CBush%7C1&cmpid=GG05X&_$ja=tsid:13536|cid:137130765|agid:7462990485|tid:kwd-67526741685|crid:168105500547|nw:g|rnd:5296243351471559159|dvc:c|adp:1t1&gclid=CjwKEAiAtefDBRDTnbDnvM735xISJABlvGOv_OLUaAFTZZUaWbroOksJlY8YJUYyD-uUVmJN8UWnuRoCS_fw_wcB
When you compare to Sony review ratings on the same site they are actually lower on average.http://www.argos.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Browse?s=Relevance&storeId=10151&langId=110&catalogId=25051&mRR=true&c_1=1%7Ccategory_root%7CTechnology%7C33006169&c_2=2%7C33006169%7CTelevisions%20and%20accessories%7C33008651&c_3=3%7Ccat_33008651%7CTelevisions%7C33017148&r_001=1%7CBrands%7CSony%7C1
The evidence doesn't support your view either with consumer review ratings or the which reliability survey. Many field service engineers don't even see the DOA stock because its returned directly to the supplier to be reprocessed on a larger scale.
Look, I'm not going to get into another argument - I was merely expressing my own opinion from what I've seen with my own eyes and experienced first hand. If you're happy with your Vestel, then fair enough and good luck to you.
As a side note it seems that Panasonic have stopped Vestel manufacturing their cheaper models - maybe they've finally realised that sticking a premium badge on an inferior product wasn't a good idea.

I went into a local dealership the other day and saw a Panasonic tv with horrible judder and wondered if it was a Vestel model. I remember the number included 500 so was part of the 500 series. A horrible tv and not actually Vestel now it seems. A quick look online confirms it was made in the Czech Republic and seems to have a much lower motion interpolation than the Vestel chassis likely based on a even lower performance chipset at its core.

I might add my Vestel is based on a quad core chipset but Panasonic seems to have gone with a lower performance dual core arrangement for their 4k CX400 series of last year so not comparable to some other Vestel models. How long Panasonic remains in tv's in Europe anyway is debatable. They have already withdrawn from the US market which made their showing at CES with their new OLED range using LG panels all the more weird when they aren't intended for that market. The Panasonic badge means very little nowadays certainly not premium anymore its really just a badge slap on other people's technology. They don't make or design the panels or the chipsets at the heart of their televisions. Samsung and LG are the market leaders with technology with pretty much the chinese companies in pursuit. So the point is Panasonic tv's are inferior now to many other Vestel brands either because they are lower spec'd vestel models or just lower spec in general which they screw together themselves in the Czech Republic. Hardly a premium brand for their entry level models at least.

Technika was one of the worst performers according to Which and are UMC. Don't get me wrong I'm not stating its a black and white situation but when you look on AVforums you see many top brands with lots of issues and returns. The current flagship under £1000 is the Samsung KS7000 range and seem to have major issues. I've got a Vestel made Finlux set and its brilliant, my mother has a UMC bedroom set and its basic but gets the job done. Both are fit for purchase and have shown themselves to be reliable.
This is a thread about Sharp tv's and when they made their own CRT sets in Spain they were the least reliable CRT sets you could buy according to Which many years ago they then stopped production and used Vestel for their CRT sets just before LCDs came in and there was a huge improvement in reliability. I've still got an old Vestel 21" CRT Hitachi set going strong without issues.
Nope, I've not seen the inside of a Vestel or UMC factory but I have seen and worked on the innards of the product they produce.
You only have to read the reviews on Vestel made TV's - Like the Techwoods, DigiHome and low end Panasonics to see they all have issues out of the Box. Their current 4K offerings 48-55" all buzz like mad when you lower the backlight basically because Vestel opted to use a cheap transformer. On their backlit (not the edge lit) models they now try and use as few LED's as possible so they drive the few they install harder, brighter so they fail prematurely. I've poked around a few Vestel's both working and nonworking and to me they're designed to fail and built to as cheaply as possible - Electronically, they're designed terribly using components at or very near their rated limit. UMC on the other hand use off the shelf boards which are better designed and more reliable, also easier to fix in my opinion. This is reason I rate UMC over Vestel when it comes to TV's.
I prefer to go with the real statistics of a wide range of reviews and the reliability ratings of 10s of thousands of people. If you are a service engineer how on earth can you form an opinion without working out the ratio of failed sets to working. Vestel had something like 40% of the lcd market in the UK a few years ago and the rest of it was shared by many other brands. Clearly as a service engineer you were likely to see more. Some service engineer forums have stated UMC as worse. I understand DOA is different to long term reliability.
My 4k vestel tv doesn't buzz at all and I often use it silently as a pc monitor when web browsing. It's faultless and fast in operation.

The evidence doesn't support your view either with consumer review ratings or the which reliability survey. Many field service engineers don't even see the DOA stock because its returned directly to the supplier to be reprocessed on a larger scale.

Look, I'm not going to get into another argument - I was merely expressing my own opinion from what I've seen with my own eyes and experienced first hand. If you're happy with your Vestel, then fair enough and good luck to you.

As a side note it seems that Panasonic have stopped Vestel manufacturing their cheaper models - maybe they've finally realised that sticking a premium badge on an inferior product wasn't a good idea.

Sharp TVs in Europe are made under license by UMC as are Blaupunkt I believe, might give you an idea of the quality to expect and to confuse matters further in the U.S Sharp is part of the Hisense brand.
So is this bad or simply an indication of the quality not being guaranteed? I had a look and older 'Sharp' TVs over the last couple of years have very good customer reviews so that is something I suppose.
Sharp's in-house manufactured TV's were quality until they sold their European TV operation to UMC in early 2015 - especially their bigger examples. They were well made, with quality components and often over engineered but they couldn't compete with the likes of LG, Samsung and even Vestel churning out budget TV's, basically there was no profit in TV manufacturing for Sharp.
UMC TV's are better than Vestel but they're basically a collection of cheap generic parts (all made in China) and will likely not last past the two year mark.
I'd be interested how you've come to the conclusion that UMC are better than Vestel, what evidence do you have to support it? Have you actually seen the Vestel factory its pretty much state of the art in Europe and even assemble their own panels. Vestel claim the lowest DOA rates in Europe.

thought hdmi was just for a TV output but apparently the vga connection can run a monitor in hd
it appears to have a hdmi lead for the screen
so would this be suitable to add a small ssd drive to this system say 128gb ? and is the graphics card much better than integrated graphics ?
is this considered a HD screen as I only see a vga connection no dvi?
seems like a good price for a pre built machine.

My Elephone S3 arrived the other day. It doesn't have stereo speakers and the single speaker is pretty **** tbh. Distorted playback on YouTube.
The camera and video playback is average.

I have only been playing around with it on WiFi. will setup my giffgaff account when my case arrives. Don't want to risk scratching the screen in my pocket. The screen attracts finger prints pretty badly.

Browsing is fairly brisk. Not a fan of the home page/lack of apps folder. Might have to download something suitable.

So far, I'm not particularly impressed, although I was expecting the curved glass screen to be less subtle than it appears.
Hopefully, I'll learn to like it. It is an upgrade over my current Moto G 1st gen after all...

does anyone have any experience of the Umi super? I can see that Debenhams Plus sell that for £190.

Can't comment on the phone but have a look on the Laptops Direct website, as it may be cheaper. It comes from the same supplier.

Motorola's after sales 'support' sucks. There is a known issue with 'ghost touch' with the G4 and G4 Plus and Motorola are ducking tgeir obligations under consumer legislation.

​I was considering both of those phones before buying this other day.

It hasn't arrived yet (laptops direct) but I think it will out perform and under perform in other areas.
I wanted a UK stockist, 3gb ram, octa core processor, stereo speakers and a 1080p screen, which it has.

I'm a little bit concerned by the battery and the possible lack of updates, but you're never going to get a perfect phone, unless you drop £500-700 on it.

There's very little in it between this i5-6200U and the i3-61000U:
Intel Core i5-6200U @ 2.30GHz. MT = 3,933, ST = 1,497
Intel Core i3-6100U @ 2.30GHz. MT = 3,427, ST = 1,320
In both multi-threaded and single-threaded the i5 is about 14% faster. No surprise as they both are 2C/4T and run at the same base clock, just the i3 doesn't have turbo boost.

Terrible deal for a dual core



​I disagree

From Toms Hardware

"As you've surmised, the only difference between mobile i3 and i5 U processors is the i5 has turbo boost. That's it. So whereas the i3-6100U has a max frequency of 2.3 GHz, the i5-6200U will boost up to 2.7 GHz (2 cores) or 2.8 GHz (1 core) if temperature limits permit. That's about 20% faster, which is just barely on the threshold of what I'd consider a noticeable difference. (The i5 also has an obscure additional instruction TSX-NI, which helps multi-threaded transaction code like databases.)"

From Game Debate, re the graphics card.



Razakhawaja

21:56 Jul-04-2016
 
"This is a really good card for casual gamers. It won't give you 60fps on new games, but you will hit 30 on med/low settings. For older games, this card is sweet. 45+ fps on most games from before 2012"

I think its a nice all-rounder for the money especially with the Nvidia Graphics, SSD additional to the 1TB HDD and its a fairly sizeable HD screen.

Perhaps those who are voting cold underestimate 6th Gen processors or need more cores for multitasking?

I'd take it over some of the I5 U laptops posted here recently for more money with integrated graphics!

Is this any good for PS4 pro gaming like FIFA ?

I don't know whether if it would be good for FIFA specifically, but as I understand it generally there are 2 ways to benefit from the PS4 Pro's extra power.

1) If the console detects a 4k tv is connected then for compatible games such as FIFA it would render at a resolution higher than 1080p (for some rare games, possibly even 4k) and output the 4k (using upscaling "tricks" if necessary). This would of course generate a sharper image quality than the 1080p from a standard PS4.

2) If the console only detects a 1080p connected (or if you had a 4k tv and went into the PS4 Pro settings and manually changed the output to 1080p) then PS4 Pro compatible games generally act 3 ways:
2a) it would go the same way as described in (1) but would down-sample the higher than 1080p internal rendered image to the 1080p output. This is what they usually call super-sampling and would generate a slightly better quality image than from the regular standard ps4.
2b) some would give you an option to run at a higher frame rate or maybe run with higher image quality settings (better textures or shadows etc.) similar to how PC gamers could change image quality settings (Tomb Raider is a good example)
2c) some games would decide to lock the cpu to the same speed as the standard PS4 so you would not get any benefits (e.g Ezio Collection if run at 1080p)

Unfortunately, since this TV is unable to be detected as a 4k TV by the PS4 Pro you would lose out on one of the primary reasons for getting the Pro.

probably because they prefer picture quality over hype or underused features?

Is this the best laptop, for home use, for 500 quid, anyone in the know here knows of then??? :)
It's very hard to give you a precise answer as your actual requirements will differ from another person, but I would say if you plan to spend £500, for general home use then this laptop is more than suitable for your needs. I don't think you will be disappointed....

my comments...hope they help

Item Weight 2.1 Kg - probably an average weight, not too heavy or light
Screen Size 15.6 inches - more than suitable for home use
Screen Resolution 1920 x 1080 pixels - more than suitable for home use
Processor Type Core i7 - good spec and latest generation. Probably actually overkill for home use, but if you have the budget this is a good component to spend the money on to future proof it
RAM Size 8 GB - good amount
Hard Drive Size 2000 GB - lots and lots of space, so good. Would be super fast to boot if it included an SDD (solid state hard drive), but you may be able to add one later.
Graphics Card Description NVIDIA GeForce 920MX - Deff overkill for home use, this laptop will handle almost everything you will throw at it from a graphics point of view (i.e. latest games etc)
Number of USB 3.0 Ports 1 - could have done with more usb 3 but not a deal breaker


Wrong; ​It does not have the latest generation chip; it has a skylake i7 chip NOT Kaby lake.

Just looked it up and I'm surprised to see you are also correct. I had assumed an i7 6xxx was the latest group of chips but I see this is dated July 2015, so yes not the latest but still good enough for a home PC.

Thats INCORRECT, you need something like a Nvidia GTX 950 or higher to play some of the latest games in a acceptable capacity IMHO (or atleast get Nvidia 940MX if your really struggling for a budget).
Please check the graphics card benchmarks on http://www.notebookcheck.net/ for further info.

Yup, your right - I was writing on the assumption 'he' was going to play average games but not the latest/powerful - in which case a gaming laptop 'type' would be best. So yes you are correct

Just wondering for future reference when more deals come about, have any Pioneer Kuro or late generation Panasonic Plasma owners bought one of these and if so what are your thoughts?

Also, and this question is for anyone, would I be right to assume the sound will be pretty awful and a soundbar will be needed for general viewing?


Speakers are surprisingly good I have found. Best I've had anyway. I haven't felt the need to get a sound bar.

​I don't have this TV although I bought another 65" 4k mid range set a couple of weeks ago but I looked at all the 65s in and around my budget, none of them can do live fast action sports like my 50" Panasonic G30 Plasma did, although every other aspect is as good as or better

​Yeah it was before the deal. only reason I saw it was I'd looked the day before. Just been dispatched so will have mine tomorrow
Now £188 :(
Richer sounds seems to have proper product info on this precise model if anyone is buying. The combined Amazon listing makes this TV damn confusing since there's variations in ports and whatnot across models. LG user manual PDF isn't particularly helpful on spec either.

HD ready-ness aside it sounds from reviewers like the panel they've used is relatively decent. Can't find any 'real' panel spec info apart from 8ms response time - so hopefully IPS or VA.
Does anyone recommend a 32" smart tv around or under £200?
bigpappasmurf13
Just so people are aware this is HD Ready and not full HD. In this day and age I wouldn't pay that sort of price for a TV that's not full HD but thats just my opinion. For something like a kids bedroom like you say I sure it'd suffice but I'm not voting either way


You wont notice the difference between a full HD (1080p) and 720p (HD ready) TV at this size. Bigger TV yes, but this is only 28 inches.

German keyboard. useless
http://www.notebookcheck.net/fileadmin/_processed_/csm_main_8239805f95.jpg

Looking online, I've noticed that the QWERTZ keyboard has a much shorter right shift key. This may be a problem for touch-typists.

I've just tried to cancel my order but I think Amazon are going to ship regardless.

Is this causing any problems for anyone?

Arrived today. Sweeeet.
Buttons changed (don't do this if you're ham fisted, mars bar fingered etc its on your own risk). Set keyboard and locale to UK and indeed qwerty touch type layout prevails (shft 3 = £ etc). Quiet, light & I'm happy oh and it flies.
Your choice about changing keyboards or leave as is but I'm happy typing this. I don't speak it but I figured out the initial German setup before changing it in the first 5mins.
Edit Lenovo livechat said 310 doesn't have miracast ... eh yes it does

Thanks for update looking forward to receiving mine any light bleed on screen remember curry offer that went mad some had issues.

So I take it you carefully pry off and swap Z&Y ?

its like they took nice a really nice up to date i5 w SSD and FHD but put it in an old-ish undesirable laptop model ..kinda sad really. :(

Not sure - I've ordered it as the spec is otherwise really good compared to other models.

Has anyone spotted a better alternative at this price for a comparible spec?

Please note that the TV looks nothing like the one in Currys picture. The one in the picture is a Samsung UE22K5000. I odered it before Xmas but was really dissapointed at whet I got!
Search for the TE22E310 and you will get another TV coming up with substantially bigger bezels! Actually looks LIKE THISOr check this video around the 4 Minutes in
​you must have got wrong delivery. I bought this about 3 weeks ago from currys for £110 and is same as pic on website and the display one in store
Doesn't change the fact either their model no. or picture is wrong, as they're two different tv's.
huh? I ordered the TV in the link and got the TV in the link.
​SAMSUNG - T22E310 22" LED TV product code 163883 price £ 109.99
I can't see anything wrong here? I'll gladly put pic up.https://imageshack.us/i/pmYe7Fefj
Yeah I don't know what's going on here. But the tv you posted isn't the same as the one curry's picture. Look at the bezels they're about twice as big, including a big black bezel above the silver bezel which is absent on the currys picture, which looks instead like this tv as pointed out above: http://www.argos.co.uk/product/5416084

Exactly my point. The TV in the picture is slick, has a super slim bezel and no black bezel element on the bottom at all.

I bought this from Curry's and sent it back and asked them to change the picture to the correct one. If anyone is happy with their purchase, cool... But I was merely pointing out that you will not get what you have been shown... It's slightly different as one of the linked photos above proves.

It's sad that Curry's don't give a damn about this as they have had over a month to change the picture since I reported it to them. Shame on you Curry's.

The model number on their site is correct but they have used the image for the UE22K5000 model... Which in my opinion is a far better looking TV with smaller bezels.

Bought this, plugged in, set up - just brilliant, what do you expect for £250 - a Television is... a Television. So far. am impressed, good picture and the sound quality is decent, without the aid of external soundbar. No matter what, some of the reviews for much more expensive TV sets are dire, I am no expert like some on here who profess to be. It's a thumbs up from me and voted Hot - Hot - Hot. And - the staff in-store at Sainsburys were brilliant, so helpful, even carried it out to the car for me.

Nothing wrong with this panel, actually its one of the better price v quality from the 2015 Samsung 6 range. Like already mentioned I have choosen to go with a 1080 panel due to lack of 4k content and the poor upscaling on the current 4k panels, you need to be spending £1k plus to get anywhere near proper HDR and even then I would be looking at OLED which are clearly the way to go, best advice save your money get this, sit back enjoy and over the next 18mths use the money saved to buy an OLED when its sub £1k...........

Any cheap 4 k better than this ? Really?.Have you heard the saying better for people to think your a idiot than to open your mouth and prove beyond all doubt.

experience non HD looks terrible at 1080p...so I'm assuming the majority of TV channels would look even worse in 4k.
My concern would be the curved screen. Does anyone have experience of them and are they better / worse / weird?
Heat for the deal OP
​That is not true. It is just fear of the unknown as I guess you have not used a 4k TV. Simple truth is 4k can handle everything brilliantly, while full HD cannot. I watch old movies all the time on my 4k without any problem. Full HD looks much better on 4k compared to my Full HD Plasma TV which I got rid off. Don't waste money buying this rubbish. Technology changes with time and unless reduced to clear at throw away price, no point buying Full HD at this price.

A good plasma beats all Tvs bar OLED; you must have had a poor plasma. My panny 42" plasma was excellent but after 7 years it died and was'nt worth repairing

Very expensive 4k sets will probably produce a good full HD picture but if you paying £800 -£900+ buy an OLED instead unless you are a 4k gamer in which yes go 4k.

You can buy all Samsung branded rubbish, even their exploding phones but don't tell me this nonsense. This is £449 down the drain. Maybe it may have antique value some day but this is just £449 garbage now .

Good price for the spec. But keep in mind it's technika... Not likely to last long before things start going wrong with it.

Loads of television brands are made by UMC nowadays including Sharp and Blaupunkt. They are admittedly basic sets but my mother's set is close to 2 years old and working well (e-motion) which she has in her bedroom.

If I wanted a basic set for a minor room I'd consider a UMC model whichever brand it has on it.
every single time I used this brand turned out this is so cheap

Got this for my son for Xmas. Very impressed with it. You won't find another 1080p for the same price. Used my club card points to get it for 100
Got this one (at this price) for my youngest's bedroom for Xmas. Was the best full HD 32" I could find at the time, and hasn't disappointed so far.

Utterly shocking TV, def not worth more than £200 in current market
Bought from Tesco £200 - failed next day. Can't switch on. They delivered new one. This still work but so slow on menu, options. Sometimes freeze - need unplug from mains. App market useless, dnla can't play any music or video. Only from usb read some video files. Quality even can't beat Techwood which was really better but broke down and been refunded from ao.com.

​Would JL not price match
Sadly not, I tried it but JL won't as Co-op Electrical is online only.

Tempted to go for it.


​me too... also tempted to wait for annual TV clear out around march though hmmm

would bite if it had longer warranty like JL/RS

heated in any case thanks op :)

CPE30 no longer works, but CPE20 still does. Enter the code before checkout, and then it is applied after you select a delivery method (because the item is under £300 until the £4.99 delivery is added). Total price delivered £284.98 - I can't find this TV cheaper anywhere else at the moment.
code doesn't work, it asks for membership number. do you know how to get around it?
