Want it, but can't see it being that great for gaming?

Beware if you're not happy , returns not accepted if opened and plugged in ???!!!!!

They have one up in my local co-op (although it's priced and £199) doesn't look too bad considering the price

Hot

I missed out on this last time, ended up buying a different one

Good price for the spec, this was part of the black friday build up week prices from Yeh Olde Co-op, so good if still available at this price

great job if you're looking for a big,cheap tv.
but if you;re looking for a smart tv , you'd be better off buying a separate android box for about £30.

Don't think this would be great for games as only 50hz.

No DLNA?
Not a true smart tv...

9th comment. Wondered how long before i saw this generic comment.

I considering buying this when it was posted a few weeks ago. However, I decided against it because:

1) the reassurance of being able to return the item is virtually non-existent;
2) it's very much reflects a good deal now but will be far behind in a few months ie. all of its features are several years old now;
3) like donegal said, it would make more sense to get a different model and "smarten it up" with a certain device that RRPs in the region of £30 but which is likely available cheaper some way.

1) Surely you can return it if it faulty.
2) Isn't most technology?
3) Just what you need, another entertainment appendage!

IMHO of course.X)

Quite right!

I just need

"only 50Hz would be unwatchable"
"might be ok for a kids bedroom"
"its just a rebadged Vestral from Turkey"
and
"you'd be better off buying this for the extra £400"


and i've got a line on my HUKD TV Bingo card.

you get £20 off £300 spend.

So if your buying this it brings this - ebay.co.uk/itm…949

down to £109.99

I bought this a few weeks ago, same 40272SM.

It does do 60hz, and it's fine for gaming. The smart features I've mostly ignored, it was the best priced 40" Full HD at the time. It's nice that it supports DLNA though, I can send music/videos/pictures from my phone direct to it over the wifi.

The picture quality is great on it, very bright, high contrast and deep blacks. I don't know what panel type it is, but it's definitely not a cheap TN one, the viewing angles are good.

The speakers are passable, but if you plan to watch movies or game seriously on it, you'll be looking for a soundbar or some other proper speakers.

Specs on website say its not DLNA compliant?
I.e on my Samsung smart TV (Which is DLNA compliant), i can browse my DLNA server (Serviio) and play things from my HP microserver.

Those specs also say it's 50hz when it can clearly do 60hz. It does have DLNA. I can send media from my phone to it using bubbleuPnP.

The TV's media browser also sees my Subsonic music server. It shows the DNLA logo. It definitely has it.

they can't just ignore British consumer law by writing that in the auction description, ignore it. Check out the Distance Selling Regulations Act.

Why's that then?

Thing is though, the guy getting slated for posting about 50hz is correct and he's entitled to tell people that it's poor for gaming. I had a 50hz tv and it was woeful for gaming, it simply can't keep up to any pace, so if you into gaming and watching sports then this tv won't do the job.

Good work guys! I didn't say the TV was no good, just that 50 hz isn't great for gaming. What do you think happens when a device outputs a refresh rate that is faster than the TV can handle? Motion blur. If people are happy to buy a TV knowing the likely outcome for game playing, that is fine. But some people may not know and would appreciate the knowledge.

Buying cheap is buying smart.......yet another smart comment..

This is absolutely incorrect. You don't get motion blur due to a faster input rate than the panel's output rate. You get screen tearing: en.wikipedia.org/wik…ing

This is anything but motion blur. If it was blurred, it would be obscured and that'd be beneficial. Secondly, this tv does do 60hz. It also supports DLNA. That spec sheet posted earlier is incorrect.

We are going to have to agreed to disagree on this, refresh rate is related to motion blur and motion blur isn't beneficial, detail is lost.

Does the TV manual state this? I used to have a 720p TV that showed "1080p" when it received a 1080p input, but this was the TV just confirming the input source, not what the actual display would be. Unless your manual states the TV is 60hz, you could be interpreting the message as the TV saying it is 60hz.

I thought with all goods bought from the net you had a 7 day return policy?

Of course exlcluding underwear or shavers etc unless faulty.

What are your opinions on this TV against the Freeview HD version (no smart capabilities)? (http://www.ebuyer.com/615544-40-digihome-full-hd-freeview-hd-tv-dlf401080fvhd)

I have a Now TV box with Plex, but would I lose out on other DLNA functions/advantages?

Pity co-op consider excluding almost 2 million Northern Ireland residents from purchasing any products from them a smart business move.

Voted hot.
