I've noticed it doesn't matter what's on offer there's always a select few just waiting to tear it apart

good price for what it is, thanks OP
Potentially awful, but £329 for a 55" TV is pretty cheapl
Not 4k. Not HDR. Not expensive!
Amazing price for that much telley!
Awesome price for the tv with the current pricing for 4K and the limited content available. HOT
Reliability is poor on these(Toshiba badge on a Vestel TV), I'd suggest a long warranty is necessary.

There's plenty 4k content around

And considering I jumped on the deal for the Samsung 55 inch mu6120 4k TV for just £100 more this doesn't seem so hot

Ebuyer+Vestel = trouble. Personally I would avoid Ebuyer at all costs but if you must they do a 55" 4K Linsar-Bauhn TV for £309 which will probably be more reliable than the "Toshiba" plus its 4K.

Ultimately, Vestel TV's only make sense when they're backed up with an extended warranty from the likes of Costco, John Lewis, Richer etc.

I have a Toshiba which is a Vestel and it works just fine and has been for the last 3 years. So no issues with Vestel.

You cant actually compare this to TVs which are £450 or more as thats 25% more. At this price point if someone is going to buy these they will definitely not shell out for 4K blurays at £20 each. And any other 4K content is non existent.

So makes excellent sense to buy these as a stop gap until 4K matures. Great deal

Well you’ve been extremely lucky getting over three years out of your Vestel.That said their older stuff is better made than the current crop – they’re gradually getting worse with each passing year.

This, for me is way over priced for what it is. At this point in time it really should be around the £250 mark – same price as 1080p Polaroid, Techwood and DigiHome Vestels when they’re on offer as they ALL use the same chassis – you’re basically paying £80 for a Tosh badge. It’s even colder when you consider in recent weeks Samsung and LG 55” 4k models have been sub £450, over £100 more yes but they’ll be head over heels better than this + they’re 4K and you don’t have to deal with Ebuyer.

Each to their own I guess.

I've noticed it doesn't matter what's on offer there's always some to ho anything is a deal!

If there's anyone ho is trying to tear this deal apart, maybe they have a point as few weeks ago you could had 55 4k for extra £50. Now how many 55 4k's you can buy for £380?
If it’s within your budget and you really cannot stretch further get it. warranty extensions can always be purchased after.
I have had bad customer experience with Toshiba as a company and so have not bought goods off them for at least 9 years. When my computer screen would not respond I sent it off to them and came back to me asking for the price of the laptop new just to fix the screen. I refused point blank and they asked if I wanted the laptop back broken for £90 which I also turned down because of then having to fork out again to get someone who would not rip me off to look at it would still have been expensive because of Toshiba's delivery charge in the first place. So now I will not recommend their goods or buy even a SD memory card off them on principle of this no matter how tempting their deals are. I would buy a Samsung or a Sony or any other make for that matter that are reputable and offer good warranty.

That's a shame, though this TV has nothing to do with Toshiba, this TV is manufactured by Vestel and has a Toshiba badge stuck on it.
These must be good for the money you pay for them ,if they were that bad would john lewis and richer sounds give such long guarantees for them,That would mean they were constantly paying out for repairs.

Do John Lewis or RS foot the bill for extended warranties, they're often a seperate entity. Regardless, I do know that Vestel are bad enough that Panasonic quickly stopped using them. I have no axe to grind with cheap TVs, I do have issues with the use of ex-quality brand names being stuck on cheap TVs.

Obviously they outsource their warranties but they still have to pay for them.

If it is obvious that they outsource warranties, surely it is also obvious that they do not 'constantly pay out for repairs'? Regardless, it makes no difference to me if you ASSume that a five year warranty guarantees you are buying a good quality reliable device, bash on.
Sometimes retailers buy stock from the manufacturer without any sort of manufacturer warranty or support meaning they get a discount – they then provide support from day one themselves. One good thing about Vestel, spare boards are usually plentiful new and usually cheap – the only downside is some repair companies refuse to fix them.

As damadgeruk states the issue with this Tosh is that fact they’ve stuck a premium badge on an inferior product.If you compare a Vestel chassis to even the cheapest Samsung, LG and even Hisense TV – the difference in build quality and engineering is night and day. Vestel – good for supermarket TV’s but companies like Toshiba and Panasonic should be ashamed of themselves for sticking their name on them.

Btw Panasonic have stated using Vestel again for their E302B range……
