So.. What do people think about this TV for the money ??

Also, the best price I can find is £389
Edited by: "RickT" 22nd Dec 2012
well if it even works it's worth this much.
Need to update that price its not £369 its £399
So do I buy this or wait for the sales for a better brand tv?

Hey buckfast67uk ,did you know that your big branded tv's like LG, Philips, Samsung , Sharp, Toshiba, etc etc are also made in "hell hole" Poland ? Well you probably dont, and that wont surprise me after your sassy comment...

The spec in the link posted above confirms it does.

They only do one TV of this size in 3D.

Is 50hz good enough for a TV of this size ?

Thanks

Is this a good TV for the money ?
50Hz will probably lead to an annoying flickering when viewing 3D. Defeating the point in getting a 3D TV. Unless someone can vouch that it is good in 3D I would probably avoid it.
exactly, also not great for gaming or fast action films. compared to the 800+ htz on current TVs this is old tech. wait till Jan & put the 400 quid towards something that is value for money, even of it costs you another 100 or so.
If anyone orders it don't forget to take a screengrab of the specification on the sainsbury's site and save a copy of the web page. It says it has freesat built in but it doesn't have that feature so in the case of a return the sainsbury's are responsible for all postage as the product has been mis-advertised. To make sure you are not liable for any return postage just state that you wanted to use it for freesat. I'm pretty sure these sets don't have built in freesat and the actual Celcus site linked earlier states it doesn't have freesat.

Often the specification for these sets is wrongly advertised as above. Its like a 100hz set and for 3D with passive this is fine. These sets are both good and bad related to their specification. For example because they don't do much in the way of image processing compared to LG sets they often have low input lag at the expense of picture quality. Large LCD panels like this are more likely to have obvious blurring or juddering when you watch panning shots in football etc.

This is a set to buy if you want 3D movies and games for all the family due to using the passive 3D system which is great and comfortable to use albeit at a slight resolution drop compared to active but you may not notice this depending on viewing distance.

At £389 (only a £10 voucher seems to be working) I think its probably worth waiting for the proper sales.

If you want a large tv with 3D capability it might be worth looking for a 50" active shutter plasma in the sales from Panasonic, LG or Samsung but note the 3D system on those will be less comfortable or convenient but for 2D use will be superior overall at the expense of greater power consumption (likely).

I'm aiming for a 50" 1080P 3D Panasonic at £500 with a 5 year guarantee.
Good information,thanks
Great price, and from what i have read about sainsburys celcus make tvs, they seem to be great tvs to and get good reveiws in general, i must note theres not many reveiws about this tv yet but ive seen a few good coments, heres a little tip, some stores stock these tvs in store, if you can find one you can use as many of the relevant cupons sainsburys give u over the tills in one transaction, unluckly i dont think u can use the same type of cupon more than once, so if you have 3 £5 off cupons u can only use 1, but if you have a £7, £5,£2 cupon u can use them all, check for yourself, obviously you can use these cupons on any of sainsburys products, im a bit gutted because i only found that out when i was buying the tv and only had about £10 worth on me, one last tip u can get 5 years cover for tvs direct from domestic and general for around £100 depending on the tv, i no jhon lewis do this to so obviously you have to work out which way/tv works best if you need the cover which i do. Ive had nearly £2000 pounds worth of sony lcd tv which would have been 3 years old now die on me 2 years in, luckly i was covered and they replaced the tv for the latest sony 3d led tv what a touch that was, so you see if £2000 sony tvs dont last your never safe, unless you are. If anyone else has any tips or has seen better deals let me no i've got a month to take it back if a better deal comes along, thanks.

Have you found any reviews online for the TV?

Cheers

Rick
Cold from me unless you don't game, even Viva Pinata REQUIRES 60hz or you can't play it...so this TV just won't work with a lot of console games.
And to clarify, I am referring to the 50hz or 60hz on frame rate of the media, not the almost meaningless motion rate (or whatever each vendor chooses to call it) that varies between vendors (running into the 100's of hz). That figure will affect 3d performance (potential flicker) but is difficult to compare between vendors and will not affect the actual ability to play something, just how well it plays.

Have you found any reviews online for the TV? CheersRick

I've seen some good coments about this tv and load about other celcus make tvs so im going on this, I have corrected my first post as theres not many reviews on this tv yet, im a bit cocerned about the low Hz rate as mentioned by a few people here, im just gonna try mine out and see how it is, also going Jhon lewis to try a 50" panasonic plasma out, was worried about plasmas but the read ups show that there all good specially the panasonic range.
The set will be compatible with 50hz and 60hz media without problem. It's likely stated at 50hz due to either the mains frequency or the fact the built in freeview tuner will be 50hz. Vestel sets have no problem supporting both 50hz and 60hz modes via hdmi and it will be based on a chipset which internationally compatible.

The issue with motion is an important one. LCD panels have much slower pixel response times than plasma sets and this is more noticable on larger panels. There are 3 approaches to improving this issue. Use a class leading expensive LCD panel with the best pixel response time (that won't be happening here), use clever algorithms that process the image and motion to make motion look smoother (this is LG's solution on many of their sets) but this can introduce high input lag which makes it inferior for gaming or lastly you can use more limited motion compensation and end up with occasional judder or blurring but low input lag, this is also the cheapest option so used here. The extra factor is that the more expensive a set the faster the cpu is so it can do more picture processing with less input lag. Clearly an expensive LCD set with a fast processor and high spec panel can achieve good motion and picture quality. However plasma sets can achieve far smoother motion with much more humble processors and panels because the technology is inherently better at providing smooth motion because of the ultra fast pixel response time.

Also lets forget this set features the passive 3D system which is by far the most comfortable and convenient 3D system currently available. You never have to worry about batteries or recharging the glasses, you never have to worry about breaking the glasses (poundland sell replacements), No matter how large your family everyone can watch 3D, no one ends up losing 3D half-way through the movie because the batteries run out. Passive 3D maintains an image to both eyes all the time and is far less likely to give headaches and migraines. Even if you keep your tv for 10 years replacement glasses will always be available. Although I'm a big plasma fan I have to say passive 3D is for me the huge advantage of LCD sets over plasmas because plasma's can't support passive 3D and for me its the only reason I'm considering buying a LCD based set instead of plasma as I want 3D and Active Shutter is such an inferior system in convenience and comfort.



That's good news then as the input frame rate was my main concern - otherwise this set looks great value, it even has a decent (180deg) viewing angle. The last own brand set I bought (maybe a Cello or Celsius) could not process 60hz input meaning it was useless to me so I am now very aware this can be an issue, I'd personally never thought of it before because 60hz is used for default video standards in many countries so almost all TVs support it.
Have phoned a few stores in case they are in stock but last 2 were sold yesterday :-< They are however getting more in but cannot say when other than "soon". They did say that the price will be the reduced price until the end of Jan 2013 (providing they come in by then).
Forgot to add - the contrast ratio is stated as being 1600:1.
I posted a TV with an aspect ration of 4000:1 which someone said was almost as low as you could get.

Does that mean the contrast ration on the Celcus is poor or have I got the wrong end of the stick?

The aspect ratio is the ratio between height and width of the screen. Old sets were 4:3 and new widescreen sets are 16:9. A 4000:1 aspect ratio clearly will never exist and would certainly be a low screen.

@samjac26

In regard to 60hz, there is a Hitachi 47" passive 3D set made by Vestel and that features 50 and 60hz support for 720p, 1080i and 1080p. It also features 24hz support for 1080p. Clearly 480i/480p are 60hz modes and 576i/576p are 50hz modes. Component also supports the same refresh rates except no support for 1080p via component and this is likely the same for this model.

Your previous experience is probably down to a poor firmware in the set. There is no reason why 60hz shouldn't be supported in hardware but a poorly written firmware may omit that feature.

Vestel aren't great for providing updated firmwares so its important to make sure all features are working when you receive the set.


@bonzobonanza Thanks matey, I understand how this technology works in theory however I just thought it might be worth posting my real world experience for others benefit.
I would advise that people test this as soon as the set is received if its a key feature for them as it was for me.

I agree passive 3d makes more sense and looks just as good, i have had a little go with this tv now, i connected a hard drive through its usb connection and so far its run all my video files apart from 1 and i've tried quite a few, the picture is sharp and the 3d is great and very sharp to the only really bad point was the sound, now i dont no if most of these led really thin tvs suffer from weak bassless sound due to how thin they are, but in the stores they all seem to have sub woofers connected, which is the bass speaker, it has a connection for one on the back and ive added one now which makes all the difference, i still need to tweak it and see if its fixed it, but straight away its made it sound alot better, started watching one of the Resident evils in 3d which looked and sounded great and loved the 3d affects, im gonna check it out a bit more and let u guys no how i get on.
