Includes Android TV I believe so should receive regular updates unlike other TV manufacturers leaving theirs go old and buggy
It's hard to know really. ElectriQ is an in-house brand for the (x) Direct chain, so there's rarely any information about the products. They have sourced decent quality panels in the past for PC monitors though.
That's a big tv for £620
I’ve ordered anyway so fingers crossed some good reviews. Thanks for people’s comments.

I’ve got a Luxor 4K 55 inch tv also that’s lasted me two years is excellent so fingers crossed this is okay to

Indeed! I have yet to bite but noticed they seemed to be using an AU optronics or similar name panel on their 32" 4k monitor - similar to Acer/Asus I forget.

If this tv had decent response time for gaming... I would be very interested! But probably need to stick to a monitor for that. I've read only some Sony series is good enough for gaming 60fps

eg rtings.com/tv/…ing this chap
ex display one £561! (545 with which hassle)..... shame the legs are too big as won't fit where I currently have my 46" Samsung.

I’m sure 6ms is a really good response time for Gaming
I'm not gonna spend £600+ on a TV branded 'ElectriQ'
couple of comments say problems connecting to sound bar - no optical out?
that is annoying... wonder if ARC via HDMi would work for my 5.1 speaker system.

It's a good size and video quality is satisfactory, though it struggles to match up the quality for a start when streaming (YouTube, Netflix) this isn't an issue with my Internet as there is no problem with any other TVBad Points−The operating system is android lollipop 5.1.1 not android TV as stated. The TV recognises itself as a mobile device rather than a TV so casting is complicated but possible if you know what you're doing.

I was also told there was an optical port for audio, which isn't there. So I've had to purchase a separate Bluetooth transmitter just to use my soundbar.

The interface is clumsy, sluggish, and definitely not ergonomic, honestly just a disappointment , not bad, just disappointing.

This TV took a lot of effort to set up, definitely not a TV for someone without the knowledge to achieve what the want, or the patience to research how.

this guy talks about input lag

rtings.com/tv/…lag

need to see if 'game mode' in the manual. I just scanned for specs mainly

hmmm word 'game' not found

there is a picture mode 'standard' is shown in manual and has a 'noise reduction' which could be turned off to improve response?

I agree!

I like buying unknown/2nd hand/bargain stuff! My 24" IPS AOC monitor was awesome when I got it for £120 many years ago! It's like a challenge to find the best unbranded thing! Why pay for advertising if they use the same panels?

By contrast, I bought a really bad 'toshiba' tv and has put me off vestel for life.

I know any tv can fail, some unknown brands are Terrible and some known brands are. For the price it’s a bargain. Hopefully anyway haha. I shall see tommorow if it’s any good. Apparently in the email from appliance direct. The delivery team will open the packaging and show you the tv to see if your happy if not you can refuse they will also take the packaging away for free which is a nice touch. Saves a trip to the skip

The customer service of appliance direct seems great! And I don’t mind taking a loss on the tv in the near future. But tbh I don’t think I’d sell if it does a good job, unless the price of 75 inch sets come down to a grand.

There is much more to a TV than the panel, the processor and sortware plays a huge part on the picture quality

True but I tend to use my current tv as a monitor for a computer or chromecast and game mode turns most processing off?

Advantage of 4k tv is netflix 4k without a 70 quid fire tv device as not available on old pc.

My mistake.

I've been looking for an "Android TV" compatiable TV and according to Google's site, this brand, Sony and Philips are the only manufacturers offering it - I guess it's just model not brand specific.

android.com/int…tv/

Guess I'll be keeping my eye out for a Sony Bravia deal instead.
I brought the 55 inch version on black Friday for £364.99 and i have returned it due to it lacking connectivity ports (digital optical) as the sound quality was like a rubbish pa system
Recieved tv today they unboxed checked it was working all there for me. Absolutely stunning tv can’t believe the difference from a 55 inch. For the money I’m over the moon. Ps4 pro in 4K in this big screen looks fantastic

A lot of people say no optical out. Can you confirm? Does it also have a game mode in picture mode ie no processing?

Many thanks!!!
