49 inch Luxor LED TV 1080p HD with 5 year guarentee £269.95 @ Richersounds

Found 20th Jan 2015
The 40' deal has already been posted so thought I would share the 49' version. Again with free 5 year cover.

Providing big screen bangs for your buck, the Luxor 491080 is a bargain 49" TV!

FULL 1080P HD ON A BIGGER SCREEN FOR LESS

At the heart of this impressive Luxor TV is a Full HD 1080p, LED backlit screen. Full HD 1080p resolution gets the very best from Blu-ray and other sources and gives lifelike detail and stunning realism. With an LED backlit panel, the 491080 also gives an impressive contrast ratio. Commanding strong brightness, too, this Luxor 49" LED TV boasts a crisp and bright picture with deep blacks and excellent grey scale. Typical of good quality LED sets, there's also truer realism and a greater sense of depth. Thanks to a suite of noise reduction processors the picture is also clean and free from distracting digital distortion.

SOUND THAT'S MADE TO MEASURE

Boasting a 5-band equalizer, it's possible to tune the sound to suit your tastes and room acoustics. For a more spacious sound, a 'surround sound' function is also included. With the inclusion of an analogue audio out via headphone socket and digital coaxial output, it's also easy to upgrade the sound by adding a soundbar.

TWIN HDMI AND USB

Coming equipped with two HDMI sockets, you can connect up your HD sources, such as Blu-ray player and HD set-top box, with ease. Another handy connection is the USB socket. In addition to accepting photos and audio files, this is also compatible with many video files, including MKV, MP4 and AVI. In addition to this, you'll also find SCART and VGA PC sockets included. For private listening there's also a headphone socket. Finally, a coaxial digital output lets you plug the TV into a digital audio system for enhanced sound.

Look at the information on the page instead of expecting to be spoon fed

There is absolutely no excuse to not upgrade to a flat screen TV now. They're going for ridiculously low prices. If I had one word of advice, PLEASE just pay the extra and upgrade to a premium model.

There is a day and night difference in picture quality. I learnt the expensive way by buying cheap first, not being satisfied with the image (especially inferior black levels / contrast issues). And then splurging more money upgrading to a LG model. I was going to go Sony but Amazon.de took the mick with delivery. So bought an LG in the UK which i'm very pleased with.

Because it doesn't have motion processing (i.e. 50Hz)

If you refer to the 18 months rule, we are probably at least 12 months away. However, who knows. The though of a 50 inch tv at £199 is already getting me excited.

The decent ones will still cost £500+

Far too much emphasis is put on the whole "50hz" gimmick!! Unless your going to be using the TV as a monitor for a gaming PC then it will be absolutely fine. All HD TV's accept 50hz and 60hz inputs and that is all you need for TV. Even the PS4 outputs at a MAXIMUM of 60fps!

All of the top brand TV manufacturers have falsely inflated refresh rates anyway by introducing thir own named version of for it. Samsung, for example, uses CMR (Clear Motion Rate). When this is listed as 120hz, the refresh rate, in real terms, is only 60hz! They claim that the backlight scanning rate and processor allows them to add to this 60hz and list it as 120hz.

In practise, when using these TV's with a PS4 or XBox One, you would want to turn off all of these gimmicky image processing options anyway, and have the picture presented in the way that the developer intended. If you don't, the picture would be worse.

For what it's worth, I recently bought the 40" version of this TV, as a second TV in the home and I'm very impressed with it. For £169, the picture and quality is fantastic. With a 5 year warranty, it's a no brainer. Granted, the picture settings need a little tweeking out of the box, but a clear, very good quality picture is most definitely achievable.

Do you happen to know what file formats this supports via USB playback? H.264/MP4, MKV etc? I have an external source for this but if the tv supports them would be a huge bonus space wise.

Off the top off ym head I don't, as I haven't used that function yet, but I will try it out when I get home tonight and post back the list tomorrow for you :-)

My trigger point is £29 and a free Kettle. My Kettle is broken but that deal when it comes will be too good to refuse.

Thanks, would be massively appreciated!

I still have a 32" CRT as my main television, there's no reason whatsoever to upgrade at the moment.

You advise people to pay extra for a premium brand but then buy an LG over a Sony???

I suppose it depends on the size of your living room.

I agree but 1080p LED 50inch is perfect for most - a freeview box costs next to nothing if it's not built in.

Has any one actually got one of these sets? I'm looking for something for the bedroom, 50/60'' it wouldn't be used much so was thinking of going for this.

not bad and with 5 year hot

There is a very big difference between 50hz and 60hz when playing games. Obviously if you just watch films or TV channels you won't notice or have any benefit from 60hz
