Great price anyone have one ?
Voted hot. 65 inch is only £650 . 4 hdmi 2.0 ports. If it had HDR I would have bought 65 inch model.

Tiptop spot & price, seems to also have a low input lag time, so again, worth considering as a giant 4K PC monitor

Not 100% sure, but I think this particular vestel made set, like the 55" version of this TV, has the later panel in it, dual band wifi ((5Hz)) and the 2017 version of the smart OS with later freeplay gui ((4k YT, 4K amazon, 4K netflix)) on it.

If so, makes it even more of a bargain, as it is the same panel as in the Toshiba 50" vestel branded one

The three year £44.99 care plan is also advisable.
Looks good... Has anyons got one and. Comment on pic quality
I've got a Finlux and it's not bad. It's 49" 4k model but with only 2 HDMI. Really poor sound but picture quality is ok

I have no Brand Loyalty. You must be the OLED guy . A cheap 4k is much better than a branded expensive Full HD TV .

You are degrading the signal quality with that old Analog connection. Never use scart with new digital TV if possible . I remember long long time ago I replaced scart cable with hdmi cable between dvd player and my friends TV . My friend called me genius, as the picture quality improvement was dramatic.

You say "not bad". I would put it slightly lower than that. The sound is incomprehensible in my opinion. You cannot use it without a soundbar or AV system. I put my Sony 1080 back up on the wall (much better picture if you can't access 4K content) and gave the 4K finlux away, it was only £230 on here a while back for the 49"

Definitely not the panoply I was expecting.

That's a bunch of baloney, unless you only ever watch 4K content and aren't sensitive to motion blur, judder, poor black levels and inaccurate colours. I'd rather watch most content on an old plasma than a brand new cheap 4K LCD any day. The picture quality is just plain better (hell, it's better than a lot of more expensive branded 4K LCDs). As it would be for most high end 1080p TVs when displaying 1080p or lower content, because 1:1 pixel mapping is and always will be superior to upscaling, no matter how good it is.
thebaldconvict7th Mar

I highly doubt that.


I agree. Any content which isn't 4k (nearly everything) requires the tv to upscale and a slow processor will not be able to do such a good job as a faster processor. Usually more expensive tv will have a better faster processor so the non 4k content will look better on it. It is easier to upscale to 1080p then it is to upscale to 4k so a cheaper 4k tv might look worse next to a cheaper 1080p screen when watching standard def content.

Plasma's are great for sure but nothing wrong with upscaling. It's just budget tv's like this really don't have the processing power to do a good job of it normally especially nowadays when they have so many smart features and a lot of the processing is used for such features. Upscaling standard definition and 720p is where the dearer LCD televisions do a better job if they have more processing power (keyword 'if'). Plasma just works better with low quality sources as the pixel response time is so fast they don't have to waste processing time reducing judder and plasma just gives a more natural display and contrast anyway. I think at the moment the average pixel response time for LCD is something like 5ms (5/1000's of a second) but plasma is like less than 1 microsecond (1/1000000 of a second). So plasma still significantly beats the spec of LCD, even today's LCDs in many areas. A pixel response time that is 5,000 times faster with plasma or better!

Great Deal cheers heat from me
We have had a Finlux smart TV for the last year and a half and had no problems with it. Obviously not for TV nuts but great for the price.
Just to add a little feedback on Finlux TVs. I got a 49" 4k LED smart tv and it broke less than a month outside of the 12 month warranty. Contacted the company and they weren't remotely interested in helping.

My 6yr old Samsung PS51D6900 plasma also disagrees with your comment, the only display I've seen to better it is OLED, and even then it's a close one.
We purchased a New49” 4K Finlux from Amazon for £230 I’m watching it now and the picture quality is really good. Sound isn’t that great so we bought a Monitor Audio sound bar.
