Just found this on the Co-Op website. I'm not a TV expert so can't say how good or bad this unit is but the price for a Smart 4K Ultra HD TV seems to be extremely good.
For someone who just wants a decent telly to watch programmes and use the Smart features it seems a decent deal.

That means it isn't actually 4k, but Ultra-HD

I have 48" one - love it! SD to is rubbish but add a youview box and it rocks!

I'm going to guess for £400, it isn't HDMI 2.0?

Yes, I use a 64" TV as my PC monitor and yes, it is important that I buy a 60hz capable TV.

Which is what just about everybody calls 4k anyway.

The 48" has HDMI 2.0 on all 4 ports, so this is likely to as well.

Incorrect. It's definitely 4K as defined for consumers, no 4K TVs use a 4096 resolution. That is the standard resolution for consumer 4K. Stupid but true.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4K_resolution#Resolutions

Yes it should be 4096 but that's only used in digital cinema.

Wow that is an amazing discount! I just got the 48" version of this a couple of days ago from Tesco. I really like it touch wood. I found the default picture settings very poor but after finding some recommended settings on another HUKD thread it looks massively better and 4K Youtube footage is a sight to behold. That said, kinda wish I hadn't seen this thread as I'm wondering if I should have paid the extra for this as with 4k bigger is pretty much always better for appreciating the extra detail.

If only I'd known about this getting a price drop and the discount code a few days ago, I'd have a 55" TV instead of 48". I'd consider returning the 48" but it doesn't seem right to return a perfectly good set and I got a good deal on the 48" too, got the 48" for £239 with a discount code and a giftcard, so guess I did ok anyway but I'd have probably paid the extra ~£100 for the bigger screen if I'd seen this sooner....

Don't forget 2% cash back via Quidco

Thanks OP

A close personal source tells me this is a rebadged Vestel model.. heres a review for what is likely the exact same TV, only a 49" version (the feet are a dead giveaway):

Yes

So for the price and spec is this worth getting for a 4k tv?

Absolutely, for ~£350 it is a total bargain for a 55". Assuming it is the same as the 48" I have they perform way better than the price suggests. Motion handling absolutely fine, no blurring. Has no problem at all with 1080P sources, looks just as good if not better than on a 1080P set. The menus are clear and easy to navigate. Smart TV functionality is a bit basic and lacks Amazon but it has Netflix and Youtube in 4K and iPlayer for catch up plus a bunch of international/chinese apps I've never heard of. Performance is very smooth considering as a budget set this probably only has a basic dual core CPU at best. Still with the money you can save with this you could easily buy a 4K Fire TV Box to go with it to make the Smart side a bit smarter....

Sound is much better than you would expect considering how thin it is and it even has a port for a external sub if you want to boost the audio on the cheap without needing a soundbar, really clever feature, more sets should do that IMHO.

Agreed. In theory I could return the 48" to Tesco as they appear to allow change of mind returns up to 30 days (providing TVs included) but repacking up a big TV is a bit of a faff and I don't have enough left to buy the 55" until the refund comes back from Tesco, so I'd have to wait, by which time the Coop one might have sold out or gone up. Maybe could ask if they would reserve one for me or do finance or something but think it would be a bit of a long shot getting them to agree...

Or maybe best just keep the 48" for a few years and then get a 55" when UHD is more mature and HDR is standard and even cheaper?

Wish I hadn't seen this thread now damn HUKD making me want to spend more.

usually dig into the specs and research for weeks when buying a new tv, but for £350 delivered, minus what i'll get off quidco. absolutely worth the risk and if it's not up to scratch, then i'm sure i'll find a use for it

Yeah I couldn't agree more.. this is the first time I've bought a TV within just a few hours.. no pouring over specs or comparing to other models for days on end. Wreckless spending feels good! However, as usual, surely buyers remorse is looming...

£7 quidco tracked already.. not sure if it will pay out because I used the -£35 voucher.. but worth a punt.

Does anyone know what the refresh rate of this tv will be? 60hz?

You won't be able to tell the difference. Sales gimmick just like contrast ratio. 55 4k panel for £350 buy it and you'll be happy

You can notice the difference between 60hz and 30hz, I had to run my 4K pc monitor at 30hz and it hurt the eyes after using it for a while due to the slow refresh rate.

What size is the monitor?

What size is the monitor?


27inch I think.

I've recently bought the Hisense 50" hotukdeals.com/dea…868 at £399 with the discount code but it is out of stock and not due in till end of September. Am I better off cancelling this order and buying this Digihome instead? Thanks in advance for your advice.

Its HDMI2 so assume yes it will do 4k @ 60hz, which I think is what you are asking.

anyone who purchased had it delivered yet? Damnit people, I need feedback!

Had mine delivered today at work.
Left my kodi box remote control at home so cant test any 4k stuff yet!

Shipped as:
Software V.0.1.33.6
Application V.0.1.6.4

Went into the Settings menu and via WiFi it updated quite quickly to:
Software V.0.1.33.11
Application V.0.1.6.4

After the update I scanned again, and then it updated again to:
Software V.0.1.33.17
Application V.0.1.6.4

Observations so far:
Playback of 4k youtube clips is a little bit stuttery.
From USB, a 4k clip plays back perfectly (this one http://4ksamples.com/4k-uhd-fireworks-sample/)
There is an "information booklet" section in the menu... it confirms that from USB, HEVC can play [email protected] (160Mbps bitrate).. but for H264, its only 30fps for 4K (60fps for 1080P).
And from the HDMI, it supports both 4K and UHD at 24hz, 25hz, 30hz, 50hz and 60hz.

It's in stock at argos at that price. I'm hoping the hi sense is a better picture than this.

Got it yesterday .. Nice picture easy set up ..looks good on the wall, all in all seems a good buy.. just under 408 with 5 years breakdown cover and delivery .. only took 2 days..

Anyone who bought one have any recommended settings in terms of brightness, contrast, sharpness, colour and the advanced settings like skin tone, colour balance etc?

This is a very smart tv indeed...
