Ice cold from me when you can have a Hisense 4K model for a similar price. If you can go bigger, AO have the H49M3000 for only £20 more.

Why cold? JVC not much good anymore?

JVC pulled out of the TV market many years ago, now they license the brand to Currys/PC World.

They are generic TV sets, like any other own brand you'd get from Argos, Tesco, Sainsbury's etc. Doesn't mean they're terrible but the name should be disregarded straight away.

This is a very good price but the big question is, is this a Which best buy?!!
We have a 10+ year old Hoover washer dryer that was a Which best buy. Don't think we paid more than this but it is only 6 + 4Kg and 1400 spin.
The dryer packed up a couple of years back but we bought a dehumidifier which has been excellent and a lot cheaper to run and doesn't shrink clothes.
Had one repair that cost about £50 around 5 years ago. It's done us well.
This seems like a bargain Hot!!


A different (smaller) Hoover model is reviewed by Which

The top rated ones on which are all expensive ... think Miele, AEG, LG, Siemens, etc.
Top be fair they haven't tested a larger capacity Hoover, only a 4.5kg drying capacity model which was middle of the pack.

The truth about washer dryers is that that can all 'wash' lots with big capacities like 7kg, 8kg, 9kg etc for the 'wash load', but most only have a 'drying capacity' of 5kg or 6kg. Some even as low as 4kg.

With our old hotpoint machine we would do a wash then have to take half out in order for it to actually dry stuff.... but with this is should be good to do a big wash and let it dry.

Made by vestel....Another brand trashed...

Most washer dryers are rated as being able to dry 5kg or 6kg, the washer dryers that are rated at 7kg (or more) cost £550+ which is why this is a good deal

I don't know who makes Hoover appliances, but the point is the price! its super cheap for 7kg drying capacity :)

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.

I've got the uhd 55 inch version of this. It cost £1299 from John Lewis (from who i will never buy again) and it is absolute s**t. Don't waste your money.


What's wrong with John Lewis?

Why do I need to be careful ?? it's not a bloody crime to share your experience. As a matter of fact I tried to chase them for an explanation and it would be great if they can reach out and explain why the f*** they tried to con.


you're accusing them of selling counterfeit products, which is likely untrue and can be considered libel.
Your situation was one where they may have unknowingly sold you an item that had already been opened. If they sold you a refurb advertising as new, then that's an issue too and worthy of complaint. But accusing them of fraud through selling counterfeits is a whole different ballgame.

So you just talking about own post at avforums... LOL. Where are other people who could confirm they are selling fake goods ? ...Jeez. They are official Samsung seller...

I liked Blue Peters recipe for building a nuclear bomb. The ingredients included some Uranium, plutonium, sticky back plastic, washing up bottle, and a cardboard egg box.

Now I know children you might have trouble finding one of the ingredients, but if you look really hard enough I am sure you can find a cardboard egg box!

A bit of advice - if you are replacing a low voltage halogen lamp(MR 12) or similar with an equivalent LED lamp,you will have to replace the transformer with an LED driver or your light will flicker annoyingly. If there is no need for your lamp to be low voltage,places that do need to be include certain zones in bathrooms etc, then you are probably better disconnecting the transformer and replacing the lamp holder with a GU 10 lamp holder and using mains voltage GU 10 LED lamps.If in doubt consult an electrician.
quite a few types priced at £1 Farnborough store....

Update: Went there again today, but most £1 bulbs now sold, but quite a few £3 deals left.....

Edited By: Blotch on Jul 24, 2017 21:57: update
Some good prices. One thing to watch out for with dimmable is that they may not work with your existing dimmer switch. You need a trailing edge dimmer switch.

Sony rubbish, I've had 2 including a 4K and don't compare to my new LG AND SAMSUNGS!! Rubbish clonky machines! Don't waste ur money
I only paid £550 for my 4K Sony 49" TV and it's miles ahead of my dad's £1200 55" Samsung 4K TV in picture quality, sound, ease of use and app updates/optimisation but that's just 2 models specifically. After using the Samsung I would say don't waste your money on them.
Hello which Sony model do you have and where did you get it Thanks
I would love one of these if i had the cash,last years models looked best to me even the 8bit + frc
so would imagine 4k will look amazing on this.
kevgj1
Damn if you gonna pay this much for a 49" then should just wait a little more for an OLED. I manged to get an OLED55B6V from Amazon Warehouse for around £1250 few months back.

You bought a TV at a price discount achieved over a year after launch and 49" OLEDs won't launch for a minimum of 9 months if LG get the factory running for the 2018 range.

So your 'wait a little more' is an minimum of two years, and could quite easily be four or five.

chevychase
According to Rtings this is currently the best 49" tv available.

Rtings only cover the North American market, so they don't review Panasonic or Philips, and their Hisense reviews are limited.

The XE90 will come out on top for a lot of people though. The Panasonic EX750 looks like a strong contender for normal TV use, with a better Smart TV system, but doesn't compare for HDR.
The best way is to compare in shop! It's not how it will be at home but at least you can see like for like

I'm looking for a good quality TV with 4k & HDR for a PS4 Pro. Around 48-50", £5-600. Would this fit the bill or is there better out there?
I think I read somewhere that some Samsungs don't have headphone sockets, is this true? Really need the headphones

I'd get something second hand from last years lineup. Second hand Sony perhaps. Or the KS7000 if you can find one :{
Can't decide if to get a 4k tv or a 1080p projector. One one hand, a 4k TV will have 4 x resolution of 1080p but a projector can produce larger image. So is it better to choose resolution over large image size a projector can produce. Would any 4k be far superior in picture quality than a 1080p projector like benq w1070, or Epson 5300
Is it right that the MU7000 doesn't have a 10bit display? I thought last year's model did.

Trying to decide between that, the LG J800, Panasonic DX802 and Sony XE7073. Have about £1000 to drop, anyone have any recommendations of a decent performing HDR set?
secretjedi
Can I get an education here. it says 4k, but people are saying its not good. So a 4k TV has different picture quality. There isn't a standard 4k tv? I just assumed I would watch say BT sports and get a better picture than my standard HD TV?


TV being 4k doesn't equate directly to it's quality, much like a camera with a trillion megapixels doesn't make it a good camera necessarily.

You don't really need to be technically minded, just read plenty of reviews for any TV you might be considering, and if you're still not sure then ask people on here for opinions.

If you don't really care and just want to tell people you have a 4K TV, then buy this

horrible TV its a proper budget 4k screen and is utterly pointless
Indeed...
No idea why people cheap out on an 8bit 4k TV
If you want to watch 4k content, either go for a decent 4k set, or wait for the price to drop if you can't afford it, kidding yourself buying this thinking you're getting 4k in all it's glory.
otherwise, a decent 1080p will give a better picture than a budget 4k set like this.

A lot of people are turned off / overloaded by the tech specs, and rightly or wrongly, just plump for what they think is ostensibly a decent piece of kit.

So I'm reminded I've got to bore the sh1t out of myself researching new TV tech, as am dipping my toe into the market for a new one.

Will likely wait until Jan next year when prices will, potentially, have dropped further

Hmmm Currys could be selling these for .97p and some people would still complain. It's a cheap TN monitor, obviously viewing angles aren't going to be its strong point. Cheap enough to buy as a spare just in case, very good for using with a stand alone DVR/NVR or even in a server Room/Rack. Heat.
Well said.

This could be just what I need. Quick question though for those who have one already, am I right in thinking the app for this has a wake up timer function? (Sorry, on the motorway and struggling to find the answer with intermittent connections)

Yyy and Philips Hue bulbs are what then? cheeky Also WiFi
Hue bulbs are Bluetooth. They don't have a WiFi connection. The Hue hub connects via ethernet so no WiFi in the Hue system at all.
Hue bulbs are neither, they run off Zigbee which is a LR-WPAN which is more similar to wifi than bluetooth.

Can you update BIOS via USB?I've bought this but after a kabylake, and my first buld so no other processor to use
Not as far as I could find out. There are one or two boards that can be updated without a processor fitted, but I don't think this is one of them.

It may be a case of getting the cheapest processor that you can find that fits just to do the upgrade, or else a local PC shop should be able to.

Anyone else any ideas?
Does anyone know if this is compatible with Samsung 960 Evo M.2 drives ? The QVC SSD support list and PCPartPicker suggest not, but I'm not sure why this would be? I've bought the board so want to check, I can't seem to find many others of the Gen 3 NVMe spec that are confirmed to work. Thanks!

Ps. Ebuyer must have run out of the cpu fans they were giving away with this, it's no longer included.
djolltax
Just some info as I was looking to use this with a KabyLake 7500.I spoke with ebuyer and they could not confirm the BIOS version and were unable to find out what it was. For a KabyLake the BIOS must be later than F.20, if it isn't , then it can be updated but only by putting a skylake processor in place, which I don't have. As the 7500 I was looking at and a 6500 are similar prices then without knowing the BIOS level and not having a skylake, I can't buy this - but it's still a good deal.

Anyone have any luck with connecting this bulb to Alexa via IFTTT app? It looks as though it has to be done by creating your own applet in IFTTT and using Alexa as the trigger and use Webhooks to send a web request. The problem is working our the proper syntax and code to send to Alexa via the webhook. If anyone has any ideas I'd be happy to hear them :D

Hi Jamie,

I too found it confusing!

Took me longer than I thought it would have but got the app to work.

You need the Mi Home app by Xiaomi.

Once you have the app installed you will be prompted to create an account with Mi Home. You have to make an account.

After you've created an account click on the Profile button along the bottom of the main screen. Its beside My Devices.

Click Settings.

Set Locale to Mainland China.

Set the Language to English (do not leave at Default).

You will then need to go back to the main screen of the app and tap on Sign in with Mi Account. Sign in.

Once signed in, tap on the My devices button along the bottom of the screen.

Tap on the Plus button along the top right hand side and then tap Add Device.

The app will start to search for the bulb.

If it cannot find the bulb, try connecting manually.

If that does not work you'll need to reset the bulb. To do this switch the bulb on and off 5 times. You'll know it has been reset as the bulb will pulse 5 times. After it has finished pulsing, try searching for the bulb again.

When you have a bulb connected, go to the settings menu of the bulb and update the firmware.

I hadn't realised you can change the colour warmth of these bulbs. You can set it to a cool white or warm yellow. I thought that was good. To do this, you select the bulb and on the screen that comes up you swipe left and right to adjust colour temperature. Swipe up and down for dimming. Tap to turn the bulb on and off.

If anyone else has other info that can share please add it to this thread :D

Hope that helps.

Would these work with my philips t.v. vue ambilight.
These sound like they have less functionality than the standard Yeelights (4 modes vs analogue dimmer/colour control). I have 14 colour and 3 white Yeelights in my flat and couldn't recommend them enough. They work well with Alexa and IFTTT (both have an integration with Yeelight software) and each bulb has its own IP address so no hub.

Just to confirm though as I've never had gigaroll before, is this kitchen towel/kitchen roll? or is it more like the rough paper hand drying towel you sometimes find in public toilets? or some other kind of paper altogether? Hoping it's kitchen roll or not going to have that much use for it....

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.

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.
