Fair price, just don't expect a great picture of course.

A great picture is the last thing I look for when buying a new tv!
Same as sound quality being way down the list when I buy speakers.

It's a good price for a 4k 65" but it will be a poor picture especially sd

Be honest, SD looks terrible on any HD screen. If you're buying a 4k set, chances are you won't be consuming much SD content to worry about it.

i wanted to love dawn penn but she said "...
an unlikely £1499 on amazon
I would disagree on any SD "looks awful" not great perhaps but still entertaining (depending on content) i think it has more to do with the DVB decoder, some do it better as ms penn will surely attest.

Sorry I disagree my SD picture looks fine on my TV, but it will look terrible on this as I can't see the upscaling processing being any good in this TV set

You get what you pay for, personally I would avoid this seeing as you can get the Toshiba from Costco with an extended warranty for not much more plus, it’s based on the same Vestel Chassis.

An extended warranty is a must for a Vestel TV.

i bought a techwood 65inch tv from AO last november. its was cheap, around £550 with some nectar points back to reduce it more

i watch kodi and sky via iptv through a amazon five box. all looks great to me.

sd is terrible on it as you would expect. you tube and 4k films look great on it

You've replied to it, now it has a point, the point was to get a response from you.

These are actually the same manufacturer. Finlux and Toshiba TVs are both made by Vestel

I've got the 48inch of 1 of these TVs! Wicked TV for the money!

I got the 49" for 229 off here, well Amazon, in January. Its been champion, and has recently been promoted to main telly.

It comes down to the TV's upscaling capabilities; a lot of TVs, cheap or expensive, are not good at this. Since even 1080p TV is not common in the UK, when we went out looking at 4K TVs, the upscaling was the very first thing we checked. both of the £600 LG 4K TVs we have are excellent at upscaling. Not long after purchase I ran across an episode of MASH - it looked like it had been digitally updated, the picture was so good; even better than it looked on our older 720p TV.

Back to Finlux.

Back in the day (1970's), the brand was considered top end; sadly this is no longer true and their products are mostly rebranded tat, similar to the Techwood mentioned earlier. I have yet to find a Vestel made TV that was worth more than the card board box it shipped in.

Standard Definition should be adjusted to 720p

How's VHS holding up for ya

more often than not you get what you pay for. I personally would not spend nearly £700 on a Vestel TV.

Vestel make so many products under different brand names it is difficult to know who is actually behind the brand, It would be far easier if they were forced to declare who they are, for example a sticker on the product the says "such and such a brand by vestel" and than the customer could make an informed choice

my observation is that most of you are worried about upscaling? why not just let the source do the upscaling? most boxes, (sky, Blu-ray, android etc) are capable of this.

at 65" this is a big tv for not a lot of money. it's about 39p per square inch.

I don't understand why many are saying if you got this TV, you wouldn't be watching from an SD source? Most LIVE channels are SD? You have a few HD channels, but many are not?

Are am I missing something here?

I got the same deal, and it too is my main telly. Freeview SD on it looks fine as well. Having said that, it was sooo cheap it was worth the risk, I wouldn't necessarily say the same of this.

Most people I know do not watch very much live TV these days, with Amazon Prime, Netflix, Now TV, iPlayer, and games consoles. People tend to stream programs, watch Blurays/DVDs and play games on their TVs. Those who do watch a fair amount of live TV, use Sky or Virgin Media for childrens channels or sports or movies, or whatever, so the Sky/Virgin box will be handling the upscaling of SD channels to either HD or 4K. If you are hardly going to use the built in Freeview for SD channels then the upscaler is not very important.

Very true of current devices eg. Bluray players for playing DVDs, however most sources might only upscale to 1080p which will then be scaled further by the TV so it will still rely in part on the TV, however it will probably upscale 1080p ok. I run all my HDMI items and my Wii through components through a AV receiver anyway which handles all the upscaling. So even my Wii outputting native 480p is being upscaled by a Sony upscaler to 4K before being passed to my TV.

As for the sound quality, it will not be great. My Finlux is ok for watching TV, but if you really want to be immersed in a game or film, the speakers are poor. But then, that is where my Sony AV receiver fills in as well, full surround sound . Really, although expensive TVs will have better speakers built in, even they will see improvement by adding anything from a good sound bar to full surround setup. As such, you should be spending more to add good sound, whatever set you go for.

Never heard of this brand

Aye the sound was awful on the 49". Goes without saying it needs at least a sound bar on it. That's the only real issue with it. Saying that, I've got a sound bar on my Panasonic as well.

A very good TV for the money. Brother has the same model and works as it should. For the money it's great value.
