Is this decent for gaming ?

48" 4K < 300.

so take last years Black Friday fights in Asda, and move them to Aldi?

for sheer size and cost this is a steal.....recognised brand name?....hmmmmmmmmmm still heated up and thanks for posting

No mention of HDMI 2.0 in the Manual, but online some have contacted Bauhn and they confirmed it has HDMI 2.0: google.co.uk/url…5Jg

reviews are very bad for that...stay clear.

Read earlier it was only HDMI 1.4 and that's what is mentioned on the Bauhn website:

bauhn.com.au/pro…-tv

It's 48", it's 4k, it's got a three year warranty.

What do you want for £299.99?

​a decent.picture?

Aldi don`t want headaches, they (with Lidl) control 10% of shopping market currently, & it`ll increase. Aldi sell Seiki ( ) successfully ( oO ) so I`m sure these German future giants will do the same with their unknown brand TVs. Heat.

Sorry, ASDA sel Seiki!

Thanks....Out of curiosity I looked at some specs but they are hard to find proper ones for this set, which rings alarm bells to me as usually it's all '9Trillion this and 5 million Mwhateverhz' but this is 'Mmmmm' what actually is the full spec? Has anyone seen them?

Technology is way too confusing to make any real sense of it and as there seems to be no 'standards' set yet:

From 2014:

11. There are no standardsThis is, perhaps the biggest problem with Ultra … 11. There are no standardsThis is, perhaps the biggest problem with Ultra HD displays available right now/soon. HDMI 1.4, the most common standard, allows for a maximum of 4,096x2,160 pixels at 24fps. Granted this is slightly higher than the 3,840x2,160 of the current crop of Ultra HD displays, but it is not enough to do 4K 3D. It's not enough to do higher frame rates, either, which may or may not come into play (though with computers, it certainly will).HDMI 2.0 will offer more bandwidth, so higher resolutions and frame rates can be transmitted over everyone's favorite cable, but that will require different transmitter and receiver chips. This won't be a software upgrade, many of the current Ultra HD displays are already obsolete. Remember, this isn't as simple as swapping out a new cable; the hardware in the TV won't be able to accept the higher data rates. I don't hear any manufacturer mentioning that upgrade path for their $20,000 televisions.When there is a final standard, who knows what it might have? Maybe they will improve some aspect of color (either in better color depth or in a wider color gamut or both). These Ultra HD displays won't be able to take advantage of that, either.



And as this set isn't true 4K.

Not likely.
HDMI 1.4 so you can play 4K on PC but only 30Hz
4K so useless for consoles.

How is it useless for consoles if its 4k? It's only useless if the TV has a shockingly slow screen response.

(Which this probably will have....)

Because consoles are struggling to hit 1080p in many games.

4K will never happen.

Give djh1975 a break guys,Aldi always sell good TV's and the 3 year warranty is a Aldi favourite.I bought a flat screen from Aldi in 2007 and it lasted 6 years,great find djh HEAT

Thanks Dean, it's less than £300 and it's never going to be the same spec as a £1000 Samsung.

1, 4k TV's upscale 1080p so no problem playing a console on them just like no problem watching Corrie in HD on em either.
2, The Nvidia Shield already has a couple of games that are 4k native. Granted they aren't blockbusters but they have proved you wrong......

That's a 50" model not a 48".

So many pixels for so little money.

That's a 50" model not a 48".


And talking about 2013 models that have died after two years to boot!

I'm pondering this, but then realise practically that I'm not going to have anything greater than 1080P as a source any time soon!

And I've found their 3 year guarantee to be stellar. This TV is a steal if it has half-decent picture quality.

Bubuka83

Please can you provide a link? I did try Google but I couldn't find any reviews for this particular TV, only the 55 and 65 inch (superseded?) models sold in the USA earlier in the year. They appear to have a very thick bezel compared to this model.

Cracking deal, if you want a big telly buy it, ignore the negative comments on here, they ain.t got a clue. Got a 3 year warranty, I ain't seen it but I bet it is a cracking picture and nowadays even the sound is all right for casual viewing. Just bought a 48" Samsung if I had known about this I think I would buy it.

brookysm

Exactly, that's a superseded model with bezels of epic proportions; if the image is correct this is a new model and I couuldn't find any online reviews for a 48-inch size. Not too worried even if it breaksdown at 2 years according to some reviews as the Aldi UK 3 year guarantee is sterling (I have first hand experience with a couple of power tools I had used to death).

The point is that if this is only has HDMI 1.4, you can't actually get 4k media into it. You'll still be watching / viewing at he same old 1080p. Paying for a ultra high def screen that you can't actually use because the hole in the back only lets 1080p in.

Think of it like building a motorway, but with only one tollbooth for all 5 lanes of traffic. Yeah, you can still use it, but you've wasted your money on building 4 more lanes than you need.

So what people are saying is, if you're going to be watching 1080p anyway, you'd be better going with a standard Samsung or LG that is probably slightly higher quality.

You can get 4k on it if its 1.4, however it will only be Max 30fps and it won't be anything copyrighted so no Netflix or Prime.

But apparently it's 2.0 so who knows...

Really, you've never seen one or know anything about it and others don't have a clue....ffs are you a real person or an ex bot from Currys.....

Educate yourselves people as you do sound rather stupid talking about things you know nothing about....or believe the BS marketing or review sites with agendas.
