This stylish 4K TV is bustling with advanced features to help take your movie nights to the next level. As well as offering razor-sharp 4K picture quality, this model supports not one, not two, but three HDR formats - HDR10, HLG and the more advanced Dolby Vision, which delivers increased colour depth, contrast, and brightness to give you a picture that's closer to the original intentions of the director. This means you'll be able to watch a whole lot more HDR content from a wider choice of sources like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV 4K and 4K Blu-rays with spectacularly detailed images that bursting with colour!

When it comes to content, you're spoilt for choice! It comes with all your favourite apps pre-installed, including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube, BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and Demand 5, so you're sure to find something to keep you entertained, whatever mood you're in. The built-in Netflix app also supports 4K streaming, which means you'll be able to binge watch your shows in all their glory. There's also hundreds of free downloadable apps available from the app store, so you're sure to find an app that matches your mood.

The TV comes with a built-in Freeview HD tuner that serves up over 70 TV channels and 30 radio stations - all for free! You can even watch your favourite BBC, ITV and Channel 4 programmes in glorious HD at no extra cost. It’s even got Freeview Play, which is brilliant if you're bit of a telly addict because it allows you scroll backwards through the TV guide to catch up with shows from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and plenty more other channels. If that wasn't enough, the TV offers a USB record setting which is really handy if you're likely to miss your favourite show. Simply connect a USB storage device into the back of the TV, find the programme you want to record using the on-screen guide and watch it later.

For a TV of its size, you'll be pleased to know that it comes with plenty of ports for you to take full advantage of your multimedia devices. For example, it gives you access to three HDMI 2.0 ports to connect up a 4K Blu-ray player and game console with room to spare, so you don't have to rummage around the back of the TV to switch between devices. There's also an optical output to hook up a soundbar and a USB 2.0 port, meaning you'll be able to connect a USB drive to playback video content on the big screen.

Probably only accepts it as an input and shows a label, won't actually be able to display it, doubt this is even a 10 bit panel never mind the required 12 bit. Just the usual mislabelled fakeDR.

There's actually an argument to say that dynamic HDR metadata is more useful on lower spec panels - in theory if you had a panel with an infinite contrast ratio and unlimited brightness, dynamic HDR would be superfluous, whereas on a cheap panel, resetting the setpoint for brightness and contrast for each scene might allow a bit of extra performance to be eeked out.....



...of course the chance of that being well implemented on a cheap TV - another story entirely.

They wont deliver to your door for free,but can collect in store...
Mods free delivery here at laptops direct, same.website design so presumably same company, website wont let me edit my post
They suffer from bad light bleed and also only have HDMI 1.4 so are not able to display 4k @ 60hz - The chipset is very dated so no chance of fluid on-board 4k playback. Essentially not a 4k screen - Source? I bought one

For a novice like me, what type of 4K do they play

Laptops direct are a subsidiary of the company that sells ElectriQ products (Buy It Direct Group), as well as any other company that sells them, Debenhams Plus (not affiliated to Debenhams department store), as well as Appliance Direct.

The smart TVs tend to have good panels (in the past they were LG made panels) but are generic made products. Quality control is not good on these so although the display is good, there are a lot of returns so i'd class it as a risky purchase. Then you have the company to deal with for returns/warranty issues.

30hz or 24hz, Fine for movies on Netflix or similar but not possible for 4k broadcasts (sky, Virgin) Also your gaming will be set at 30fps for pc and i'm dubious outside of video streaming that the Xbox and ps4s will display any games in 4k.

Sky 4k broadcasts at 50hz 2140p, would this tv decode that?
