Sound quality of my sharp 32 is very poor. I would avoid this and spend a bit more.
Does it claim to have Harman Kardon sound technology like this model? One review says sound is great, another says soundbar would be needed.

4k on a 43" screen offers no real resolution benefit compared to 1080 unless used as a monitor or laptov, the latter being kinda impractical. That said, seems reasonable price for a UMC.
There is a 49" for £299 after the code - arguably a better deal?
Certainly beneficial if watching 4k from reasonable viewing distance.

I had to return Samsung UE55KS7000 due to the black frame becoming lose, poor build quality
but wonder if John Lewis or Richer Sounds will price match Amazon
Why cold....heat from me added.

This or the £1200 curved samsung?

This 100%. Bought the curved Samsung during Black Friday and returned it the next day. Build quality on the Samsung is absolutely terrible, the panel is GLUED to the frame and there's plenty of people that have had an issue of it coming apart.

After I returned I bought this Hisense for £1080 from AO and it's worth every single penny. Image quality is beautiful, 4K HDR via NVIDIA Shield TV looks amazing, and Uncharted 4 in HDR on PS4 was an amazing experience.

Bought this yesterday for 1200 :( .. Any other owners on here? My TV came today but there are no screws for the TV stand so it's not usable at the moment can anyone confirm these are suppose to be supplied with the TV or do I have to purchase separately?


Have another look in the packing that came with it.They are in the packing that is like the wrapping for the stand.I got mine today and thought the same but going through the packaging again they were in their.They are tiny screws.

Hot for a curved tv.Pleased it isn't the bring flat version.Wouldnt go back to a bog standard flat tv.


May suit your needs, but doesn't the curve affect viewing angles? My room is open plan and I want to be able to view the tv if I am in the kitchen/diner area of the room.

They should definitely be in the box, double check the packaging as some times they tape the screws to the polystyrene "/ i have been caught out with that

Been waiting long enough now for the ue65ks9500 to drop some more but doesn't seem to be happening . So ordered it from John Lewis .. put price match request in for the currys price ... also took screen shots .. hadcot in my basket on Tuesday with. Other code but it was when price dropped from £1799 to £1299 and gutbsaid good news amour price is now the same but was trying to get it for £1199 then . So hAve proof anyway . So hopefully all goes smooth
FrugalFergal
Just my luck by Currys decided to perform a random security check on my payment so it was held in suspense for two days. Finally just got an email to confirm mine will be here tomorrow. CANNOT WAIT!
One more thing, if there are enough of us buyers, I think we should create a KS9000 buyers group so we can share our knowledge on calibration, file formats and ways of getting the best out of this TV.

There possibly is a forum group on av forums for this tv . Normally has one for all makes and models of TVs . Quick and easy to register . Great site for all av stuff ....

Thanks for that, same time as me then. Still nothing through, not sure whether to bite the bullet then reclaim the £100 when, hopefully, the price match comes through or wait. Knowing my luck they will be sold out before then if I wait.
You'd better be quick - Currys were already oos for home delivery but you can still buy and reserve if there's one in a branch near you. As soon as that option goes I would expect JL to hike their price back up.

Try calling john lewis and ask them to reserve one for you until price match comes through

Took delivery of mine today, has anyone tried to peel off what I thought might be screen protection only to think the actual screen is being pulled away really quite upset I may have done some damage or just go ahead and pull it off, any knowledge would be appreciated.
There's a plastic cover over some of mine, but there's also a motheye filter on the actual screen (do not remove the filter).

It was the Sony Bravia KD65S8505 Curved LED 4K Ultra HD from John Lewis. The TV we have now is the Samsung UE65KS8000 65" 4K HDR S-Ultra-HD (Quantum Dot).
The differences are simply amazing. Even when streaming old films that have been re-done in HD never mind on blu-ray (like Matilda on Netflix) and when streaming from Google Play; the picture is simply amazing. The depth and colours is like nothing I've ever seen.
On the Sony they look pixelated, and were ruined by lots of dots everywhere (obviously the technique they use to make an old film into HD) but with the Samsung the images is as sharp, crisp and clear as if they were film in HD yesterday. We haven't even tried anything in 4K yet
I believe the Samsung is now discontinued (it was £1,499 from Sonic Direct - I didn't expect to have to buy another TV so soon after buying the Sony - I simply wanted the same features for the same money as John Lewis did us over a little bit [the Sony was £2,199, they price matched - great - and had a £250 TV Trade in offer, in the end we were a 37" TV down and only got £1,499 refund - so we essentially gave away our old tv) but when we come to upgrade it will be Samsung for us all the way.
hmm... looks like you're comparing a LED with an OLED-esq technology. You should be in fact comparing a Sony KD-65A1 and Samsung QE65Q8CAMTXXU
and for 4K Get a UHD BLURAY player for ~£300 OR get a PS4/XBOX for same price and double benefits :D
These tellys are no where close to the £2199 which you've mentioned for Sony.
P.S.: Where and how did you get a trade-in offer?

The Sony was £2,199 - The Samsung was £1,499 (not to mentioned we got a free Samsung 4K player with it ([UBD-K8500]). There was 12 Months between purchases. I cant believe that the differences in sheer quality reflect the £700 and 12 Months difference. If this is the case now, I suspect it was still the case a year ago, and will continue to be so unless Sony begins to live up to its reputation and catches up, because in my opinion you can get a whole lot more for your money rather than just buying Sony because you believe they're best (as we mistakenly did).

We got a free Samsung 4K player with the new TV (UBD-K8500) which we are currently selling on ebay, as we dont have any 4k blu-rays yet. I just can't bear to spend more money on 4K blu-rays (after being stung with Sony having 3D glasses and 3D blu-rays to now get rid of - and they're not cheap) - the hubby does have a PS4 though which we use for our normal blu-rays

As for comparing the models above, I simply can't in fairness becuase they are at a price point I could not consider paying. My opinion here is based on the £700 price difference and 12 months between purchases as mentioned. I wouldn't feel as strong if the Samsung was the one that was £700 more expensive as I now would expect for the image quality, not the other way around. I know tech moves along quickly, but I firmly do believe that for the comparable price point Sony's do lack and their current success is based on their name alone. I just wanted people to think and consider other brands as I wish we did.

The trade in offer was a promotion John Lewis has running at the time where they gave you £250 off any TV if you trade in any TV.

I have this panel.

Some criticise the OS (Android) as being slow and clunky - I don't agree, I think for a lowish end spec 4K, this is pretty decent. Add to that the fact you can sideload apps onto this and have Movie HD streaming direct from this TV...

Don't get me wrong, the picture took a while to get right, and it isn't perfect - typical LCD tech with clouding in the corners, but it's still impressive for this price bracket.

Meant to mention lol have you tried altering the dynamic control in the picture menu to help with that clouding.

I'm sure at this price point and size it's a perfectly adequate TV. Sony don't help themselves with menu settings etc but you can almost always get a lovely natural sharp picture with great motion and very decent input lag with Sony tvs. I've done alot of research over the last few years owning some high priced sony tvs. Trying to understand the terminology of the settings etc . and Changed alot of batteries in the remotes. :D worth it though. If you gonna own this stuff may as well try and get the best out of it. Started on the beer early today basically topping up from last night in prep for the game tonight. That I'll be watching on a projector incidentally X) So sry for the rant!

I need some lights to illuminate some Oak trees in my garden if i can sort out how to mount them on the ground. I was thinking about spotlights but does anyone think these would be a good alternative?

If you're after a good specced 20w then the Osram at CPC are £13.50 inc VAT with a 30% higher output per watt.
Got a link?
I was 30p out http://cpc.farnell.com/ledvance/4058075001084/floodlight-led-20w-3000k-white/dp/LA06034?

The 20w is 2000lm, compared to the 30w 2100 lumen screwfix effort it is a no brainer :)

I put 2 up and replaced 1 300w light, it is a lot brighter.
Also 3 year warranty.

This seems a good deal too 5 "cool white" for £7.99.
Heat by the way OP - thanks for the find
This is a reflector bulb.
The LAP and Philips units are good. I've got some LAP units on dimmers, they all seem fine. Very nice light like the Halogens not at all line the cheap LED GU10s or CFLGU10 really nice. As has been said keep the receipt. If you have trouble with your dimmer not working, I had this only on one set of lights at home as the total load was under 40W after moving to LED and I had to switch to a newer dimmer I got this one http://www.screwfix.com/p/varilight-1-gang-1-2-w-jet-black-push-dimmer-1-x-400w/44256 its programmable so you can set the minimum brightness onces (this is the level just above when the lamps start to flicker) then the whole phyical rotationof dimmer is avaiable for dimming and you no longer have to hunt around for the minimum. Interestingly the LAP and Philips units worked fine with my existing dimmers. Thanks OP


You need a Varilight VPro, not the one you linked. It specifically says in the manual it's not suitable for LEDs.

While I wait delivery can anyone answer this.
If I set the bulb to a soft dim glow. Ideal for our babies nursery at night and was to switch off at the traditional wall switch. What happens when we come in at night to tend to him if he wakes and flick the switch? Does it remember its setting and come on dim. Or is this when a safety feature come into place and it comes on full brightness?
At 3am we don't want to be faffing with phone or taking to siri etc waking everyone else up to turn the lights on (i.e. having not switching the light off at the wall).
I'm not clear if the safety, full brightness feature is only invoked when the bulb was switched off in the app and then on at the wall, or if its when the wall switch is toggled twice.
Can anyone clear this up?

It comes on at full brightness when turned off/on at the switch.

You probably want the £20 dimmer (or £30 in a kit with extra bulb).

You can then also use the Timed Off application under Hue Labs in Hue app which allows you to turn on your selected light at whatever brightness you want then turn off after a set time.

Another option is to use an Android phone with Nfc buy some cheap NFC stickers and use the app HueSwitch NFC

Or get the motion sensor.

I haven't picked my set up yet but, from what I've read, if you switch the lights off with the app, then the wall switch will still be 'on' so in order to turn the lights back on with the switch and not the app, you'll have to turn the switch off and then on again and they'll default to full brightness.

One possible way to overcome this situation would be to buy a Hue motion sensor, which turns the light back on at a pre-programmed setting when it senses movement, without needing to touch the wall switch. They also do a tap switch and dimmer switch, both off which would allow you to control the lights without your phone.

Bargain price and I heated this deal BUT.
It's beyond me why anyone will get this and not the Xiaomi Yeelight, which has 65 million colours and doesn't require a hub. Perhaps it's a brand and marketing thing.
Well, horses for courses I guess but I have the Yeelight and I'm quite happy with them.
In most cases the Yeelight is the better value option. When I bought my hue set up a few months ago I wasn't aware of Yeelight. As far as I can see the only reasons for hue instead would be:
Apple HomeKit compatible
Google Home compatible (Yeelight however is Amazon Alexa compatible)
Remote control accessories for the Hue. I'm not sure if Yeelight have their own official hardware remotes, or is it App only?
Hue lights sync with Ambilight TVs
I'm not sure how well the Geofencing and control of your lights works when you are away from home with a yeelight? Although it supports IFTTT so I guess it could all be set up easily.
Thanks for the information - much appreciated.
The Yeelight is app only as far as I know. You can turn it off using the switch though and it retains wifi login information and connects when you turn it back on.
The app is a bit lacking but as you rightly said IFTTT support is a game changer and opens the door to a lot of possibilities.
On another note, I have Hive heating at home and I'm struggling to understand how location-based triggers can be useful. If I'm away from home, it knows that and it can turn heating off (if I choose to); however, that will leave the wife and kids freezing because it doesn't know they're still there :-) I haven't seen a system smart enough to trigger "away from home" mode when we're all outside, not just when one person is.
Can u set the Yeelight to come on at a time and then go off ?
Yes you can.
There are also different modes like romance, sun-rise and sun-set emulation,...etc.
I tried mine with IFTTT today and it adds another level of automation. The Yeelight is also compatible with Amazon Alexa.
At £12-£13, they're not much more expensive than a bog-standard branded LED light.
I have my home office lit with Yeelight and I will gradually use more for the rest of the house. You can group them too, so you can have a few in the bedroom, put then in a group called "Bedroom" then get the app to treat the group as one unit so they all do the same thing at the same time.
Sounds good any discount codes for gearbest.com
Can u get a adaptor for these

Latest deal can be found here.

Adapters are available on eBay for nearly £1. I'm assuming you mean adapters from E27 to E14 or similar.

They have had this range for about a year in some home bargains, I've replaced 20 odd with only 2 failures so far.
"Only"? 10% failing to last even a year doesn't sound encouraging!
I've had three on the twelve Philips bulbs I got from Amazon less than 10 months ago fail, and had to get them replaced, except they were over £4 each, not £1.59!

The Philips ones are a nightmare. We've been through many of them now. Not an issue when from Amazon, but we had a bunch from Tesco when they were on clearance there.

Googling the part number stamped on it brings up others with the same issue. The Philips ones were by far the best I've found for light, but too unreliable.
I've also had two of these and both have failed in under a year. Cheap yes, but for the convenience and reliabiltiy i'd rather pay the extra at ikea and get reliable ones.

I've fitted quite a few of these and they are of good quality and the only issue for me is only having a 3000k light color which is very yellow, 6000k would a day white and clearer light.

Also be careful when removing the mounts for fitting as there are a few washers which drop out easily.

They also come in different wattages.

The eagle eye posted earlier does not include the battery 18650 you need to make it work. These batteries are expensive here in the likes of Maplin. It is better to buy a torch with say 3 AAA rechargeables.
I would be interested if anyone has a link for cheap 18650 batteries.

A single 18650 is probably the same price as 3 AAA rechargeables but holds 12.6KWhr of power vs 3KWhr for 3xAAA.

Just look on gearbest, I usually pull old laptop batteries apart and salvage the cells. You can get NCR18650B pretty cheap.

Have this exact Torch form when Aldi had it on sale previously, about 6 months ago. I use it daily and it has given me good service, highly recommended. I have lightly greased the threads of the battery cap and lens cap and have used it when it is raining and not had any issues myself. YMMV of course.
Hi, do you mean with vaseline (for water proof?)?
Don't use vaseline as it can eat some types of orings.
Usually you lube threads and the orings for waterproofness, better movement of the threads and if it has anodised threads it helps with wear and the lockout functionality.
thanks for much for the tips, I read most of the hot uk threads as I could always learn great tips from wonderful people like you.

Ditto I love this place for getting the inside track.

thanks for the heads up. I think i'll get a couple at that price for the hallway, even though it doesn't need smart lighting
i think deal price is one per person , unless you have multiple accounts ;)

oh i see. i've just ordered one at the moment. i usually only order £15 of stuff at a time so it's not sent together and i get hit by customs. i've got 4 bulbs already and now this and after another one. having the hall lights a shade of red or purple or blue during a party will make things seem less harsh than white spots

regarding the brightness, i found them pretty decent, but that was compared to those low power energy bulbs or 40/60 watt spots. personally i didn't want them to be too bright, i wanted more of a calming mood feel, but when turned up max i get a brighter light than my old bulbs

jeeeeeez
bike lights are essential but this design is SO much less effective than the silicone ones that were on here last week.

£4.79 for three front and three back lights. http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/3-pack-silicone-bike-lights-super-bright-3-mode-led-bicycle-lights-front-rear-set-2689664


Less effective at what? Those are good as "see me" lights, but poor for lighting the road ahead (as confirmed by actual users on the thread you link to) and the front light here should be SO much more effective for that.

I have a similar set to this with the rear light on constant mode, then I have the Knogg version of those silicone ones on my helmet and bike in various places on flashing mode.

Since these take AAAs, many will find this set more convenient to use with own rechargeables.

P.s it's the same OP in both desks and I've given heat to both.

led light bulbIntroducing LEDs

LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) have been around for over 50 years, but they are really coming into their own these days. For years, LEDs were only suitable for industrial applications, but recent models are much more powerful, offering an efficient, long-lasting, environmentally friendly alternative to traditional lightbulbs.

LEDs Through the Years

The first LED was switched on back in 1962 when Texas Instruments technicians James R. Biard and Gary Pittman filed a patent for a light emitting diode. At first, LEDs struggled to emit enough light to act as sources of illumination, but their performance steadily improved throughout the 60s and 70s. By the late 1970s, they were regularly being incorporated into computers and machinery in the form of LED displays.

However, as far as domestic lighting is concerned, the really big breakthrough in LED technology came in the early 2000s, when blue and then white LED illumination was achieved (red and yellow had been the previous standard). Over the past ten years, the efficiency of white LEDs has sky-rocketed, placing the most efficient far beyond the most advanced incandescent bulbs, with a fraction of the energy costs and heat generation.

How do LEDs Work, and What Kinds of Things are They Used For?

But how do LEDs actually work, and what sets them apart from ordinary filament bulbs?

While lightbulbs rely on a superheated metal filament to generate light, LEDs take a completely different approach. They generate illumination by using current to stimulate the electrons in a semiconductor (generally aluminium-gallium-arsenide).

Light is produced when electrons move from one portion of the semiconductor that has been artificially doped to contain more electrons, to another that contains a greater quantity of holes, or lacks electrons. This movement is stimulated by the application of a gentle electric current, and it produces what are known as photons, rendering the LED visible to the naked eye. The technical challenge of the past fifty years has been to increase the frequency of photons released. The higher the frequency, the brighter the light (hence the improvement from dull red LEDs to today’s ultra-bright outdoor lights).

The way that LEDs work gives them some very handy properties where illumination is concerned. Longevity is probably the most important. While incandescent bulbs last only as long as their filament, LEDs can shine for much longer before burning out. Because they are housed in robust little plastic bulbs (even in the large LED arrays that you find on outdoor lights), LEDs are also less fragile and physically outlast incandescent bulbs.

LEDs are also much more energy efficient. This is because the filaments in incandescent bulbs don’t just give off light. They also produce large amounts of heat. LEDs don’t have the same limitations, turning a greater proportion of the energy they consume into raw light.

Previously, these advantages were well known, but the cheapness of incandescent bulbs limited the diffusion of LED based lights. Nowadays, that has changed dramatically. The price of LEDs has been dropping since the late 1990s. Even top-of-the-range lights now beat equivalent incandescent models when you consider their long-term costs.

For all of these reasons, millions of people around the world are switching over from incandescents to LED-based lighting systems. If you’d like to save money on your lighting bill and help to save the planet, why not do the same?

Different Types of LEDlighting has changed

So, we know that LEDs have some impressive advantages over ordinary lightbulbs, but what specific products are there on the market for consumers to add to their home’s lighting system?

When you buy lights, you’ll probably be confronted with a kind of industry code. When you read through product descriptions of LEDs, look out for combinations of letters and numbers after the product name. These combinations are really important pieces of information as they inform you what type of fitting the light is suited to.

Common examples of LED lights include:

  • B22: The ‘B’ stands for Bayonet, the type of bulb that you push into lighting sockets and twist to fix it in place. B22 is the most common bayonet fitting around, and a number of different bulb shapes come under its umbrella. For example, you’ll find stick bulbs, spiral bulbs, reflector bulbs, candle bulbs, classic bulbs and globe bulbs; all with LED lamps and the same B22 code.
  • E27: Also known as Edison bulbs, E27 bulbs are traditional screw-tipped bulbs. Again, you can find them in shapes like globes, candles, spirals and sticks.
  • MR16: These lamps have a couple of pins on their base that push into the socket and are commonly used in kitchens and bathrooms, desk lights, spotlights and living rooms.
  • GU10: Like the MR16, the GU10 is a reflector bulb with two studs on its base. It often comes in both halogen and LED varieties, so be careful to purchase the right variety.

When you read through LED adverts, you'll also see terms like watts and lumens. Watts (or wattage) refers to how much power the LED requires to shine at its brightest. The wattage of the bulb is directly related to the lumens (or brightness). Wattage ranges from around 4W to 18W, while lumens ranges from 220+ to 1300+. Bear that in mind when you are seeking out exactly the right light for your home.

What Can LEDs Be Used For?

LEDs can be used in a huge range of different situations. For example, you’ll find spotlight style LEDs that are suitable for reading lights or to illuminate photos and artworks. There are candle or golf ball bulbs that are suited to providing illumination for entire rooms and strip lights that can be placed along the full length of rooms to provide an even level of illumination. It all depends on the place you need to use them and how much light you require.

led color wheelLEDs can also form part of a Smart Home. Recently, standard LEDs have been joined by "Smart" LEDs like the Philips Hue. These lights are designed to be controlled remotely via your smartphone (or even your smartwatch), with multicolour options available as well.

Are LED Torches Worth the Money?

You can also purchase torches that use LEDs instead of small battery-powered incandescent bulbs. If you rely on handheld torches to get around at night and don’t want the inconvenience of changing bulbs regularly or keeping a stash of batteries handy, LED torches will be ideal. They deliver exactly the same level of performance as standard torches, with extra efficiency and more convenience, so you can’t really go wrong.

What to Think About Before Buying LED Lights

The advantages of using LEDs over incandescent bulbs are so great that there are very few drawbacks to think about when purchasing LEDs. However, if you are seeking to create a whole new LED lighting setup for your garden or living room, it does pay to plan your requirements. LED lights aren’t as cheap as conventional bulbs, so don’t spend more than you need to, and take advantage of any deals as they arise.

If you are installing LEDs outside, think about which areas of your terrace, driveway or garden need the most illumination. If you are thinking mainly about security, make sure that your automated lights are synched up with sensors in sensitive areas where intruders may pass, and be sure to buy high-quality security systems that you can rely on.

Inside the house, the same rules apply for LEDs as for traditional bulbs. Large rooms require more illumination, particularly if they have high ceilings. Some bulb shapes will be suited to lighting larger spaces (globe or golf ball shapes especially). Others can be added to supplement central lights. In smaller rooms, you could even dispense with main lights altogether. A series of LED lamps fixed to the walls would be just as effective and easier to maintain when the bulbs eventually burn out (or if you want to change your lighting layout).

Pros and Cons of LEDs

LEDs are superior to conventional lightbulbs on every level, and the differences are so massive that it’s worth recapping the reasons why people should update their home lighting as soon as possible.

The Pros: Why You Should Switch to LEDs Today

  • They will save you money, lots of it. One study found that swapping 10 60W bulbs for 10 6W LEDs would save around £240 over a single year, far more than the cost of the bulbs in the first place.
  • LEDs are also far more energy efficient (hence the cost saving). They are generally reckoned to be 90% more efficient than incandescent bulbs, with beneficial consequences for your wallet and the environment.
  • LEDs perform just as well in very cold and very hot environments and don’t produce the level of heat generated by incandescent bulbs.
  • They last much longer. In fact, LEDs last around 50 times longer than conventional bulbs, reducing the time needed to change bulbs (and the inconvenience).
  • LEDs do not contain harmful chemicals. You may not be aware of it, but conventional bulbs contain toxic heavy metals (as do halogen or CFL lights). LEDs don’t, another environmental plus.

Are There Any Cons Associated with LEDs?

  • The major drawback of LEDs remains their cost. While conventional bulbs are practically being given away by UK supermarkets, LED bulbs are considerably pricier (although that price is dropping all the time). This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t invest in your lights. It just means shopping around for discounts.
  • Not all LEDs are dimmable either. Until recently, it was almost impossible to make dimmable LEDs. Things have now changed, but if you want to be able to mute the lights in your living room or bedroom, pay close attention to the specs of your LED.
  • Sometimes, LEDs can burn out far before the end of their lifespan. This might be surprising considering their generally durable performance, but if they are placed in enclosed spaces, the heat from LEDs cannot escape, burning the bulb out much more quickly. This means being strategic about where you place your bulbs, not doing away with LEDs completely.
  • The environmental hazards aren’t non-existent either. Although white LEDs contain no lead, they often contain

    nickel, which can cause allergic reactions.

What About CFLs and Halogens?

Nowadays, you don’t need to choose between LEDs and incandescent lightbulbs. Compact Fluorescent Lightbulbs and Halogens are also possibilities. Each has their own strengths and might be the right option for you.

  • CFL: CFLs are essentially highly efficient fluorescent lamps, which produce light by exciting the electrons attached to mercury atoms. These electrons create UV light, which strikes a fluorescent coating on the surface of the bulb, converting it into visible light. CFLs are almost as efficient as LEDs, using 70% less energy than incandescent bulbs. However, they take a few seconds to reach full brightness, which some users may find irritating. The mercury that they contain is also highly toxic, meaning that CFL bulbs need to be disposed of through special procedures, another inconvenience (and environmental nasty). Then again, CFL bulbs are cheaper than LEDs and can produce more brightness. They also generate a gentle type of light that diffuses evenly, something that many people find soothing, and is well suited to lounges where it’s important to create a relaxed atmosphere. If cost or ambience are your main considerations, they could be the right option to go for.
  • Halogens: Halogen bulbs are actually next-generation incandescent bulbs that use a tungsten filament. However, unlike normal bulbs, the tungsten filament in halogens is constantly replenished by a chemical process involving iodine or bromine (halogen gases). Halogens are noted for the intense light they create, and they are commonly found in reading lamps. Their brightness also makes them a popular option for security lights and specialist applications like theatre stages, but they do have some drawbacks. One of the most serious is safety. Large halogen lights are much more prone to catching fire than LEDs or CFL bulbs. They are less energy efficient than LEDs as well (though much more efficient than conventional bulbs), have a shorter lifetime than LEDs and will almost always cost more in the long run. Whether that cost is offset by the lower upfront costs is up to you, but it’s something to think about.

What About LED TVs? Should I Go for LED or LCD Screens?

Cutting edge LEDs aren’t just being used in home lighting products. Their advance has been so rapid that LEDs are now being incorporated into 4K flat screen TVs, posing a genuine alternative to LCD (liquid crystal diode) varieties.

LED TVs don’t actually generate the picture you see from different colours of LED lamp. Instead, an array of tiny LEDs is placed beneath a layer of LCD crystals. These LCDs obstruct different frequencies of light on command, allowing only certain colours to get through. When millions of them are added together, an almost flawless TV picture is the result.

The key innovation in LED TVs is to use LEDs as the backlight for the LCD layer. In older LCD TVs, this light was supplied by an array of what are known as “cold cathode fluorescent lamps” (CCFL). LED based screens require far fewer lamps to generate the pictures you see. This means that TVs can be engineered to be much slimmer and far more energy efficient.

LED TVs also have a very important visual advantage over LCD screens. Because of their greater resolution, they can dim certain patches of the screen, adding definition to others. This creates much deeper, richer shades of black, sharpening the overall contrast. As any movie buff will tell you, that contrast has a massive impact on how TV and film looks.

But before you log onto HotUKDeals to check the LED TV deals, be aware that not all LED TVs have this capability. Check to see whether the TV you are looking at is lit or full array. Only full array TVs can implement local dimming properly (although edge lit versions are getting very close).

All of this means that if you want an ultra-slim, high definition TV that delivers incredible contrast and runs efficiently, LEDs are the way to go. But if you just want a good HD flat screen, LCD and CCFL based varieties will do just fine and cost you considerably less.
