Decent price for the amount of pixels, but I cannot find a single Hisense regional website that gives any technical details on the TV. I'm suspecting this means that it's 30Hz @ 4k, which makes it useless for any member of the PC Master Race, and 4K is just a bit pointless for regular TV use at present.

Could be a good deal, but I wouldn't rush out to buy it as an upgrade.

They're a Chinese brand. Google threw up this result which mentions some of the features. Clicky

Beat me to it!

30hz is pretty much all 4k is useful for right now in gaming, unless you have the cash to splash out on at least 2 high end GPU's or even 3. Gonna be years before hardware catches up for games to run well on single cards, can see 4k doing decently when video content comes though.

Not a bad deal but as mentioned it doesn't have HDMI 2.0 or HEVC decoding (or freeview HD for that matter). But when you consider the price you really can't expect those to be included - might make a very nice pc monitor for somebody or if you like viewing full HD 3D.

Hisence are Chinese company they brought Fridgemaster & Frigidaire brands when HI group went bust. They tie up with with Homa & Midea as well and make appliances for them, they were solely whitegoods but looks like they brought a few more factories in china to make brown goods now.

I was about to post this myself, somehow missed this thread.

I have asked about extra 3D glasses. HiSense are reported to have non glasses 3D tech but it is not a part of this TV. This one interests me as I am thinking of upgrading to a 42 inch Full HD TV and am interested to how this would compare with an LG one at about the same price from John Lewis (with the free 5 year waranty)

I hadn't notice the absence of freeview HD and will follow this thread to see what other issues lurk for the unsuspecting.

Thanks,
Ian

Where did they bring Fridge master etc from ?

The spec states DVB-S2 which is the high def satellite standard. Does this TV really have a satellite tuner? If so it could be used for Freesat HD which sort of makes up for the lack of Freeview HD.

Edit: Just found a video on YouTube which shows an F type (normal for satellite tuners) connector on the side of the TV just above the standard aerial connector but couldn't read the label beside it. Looks like it has a satellite tuner making it a much more attractive buy.

What a good price...had some heat x

price of 4K is coming down nicely ... should see better deals by christmas

Severely limited future use but bargain as a current TV. Triple tuners too so in theory you should be able to record one channel while watching another if it is hooked up accordingly.

I think you have had a few already going by that sentence

On the german test/ review site they state a 50z refresh rate, if that makes any difference.

Ah, good find.

This is seriously tempting, never imagined 4k would get so cheap so soon. The geek in me wants to buy it now but then common sense knocks and I think what would I actually do with it?

The multiple tuners would make it great in the living room and I do have satellite and freeview connections so could make full use of that, but I also have a larger 1080P set, which is a known brand (LG) and likely to be better for my existing kit which is of course all 1080P or less since there is nothing 4K out yet.

I imagine the lack of HDMI 2 means it wouldn't work at full 4k resolution with any future 4k Bluray players, set top boxes, consoles etc? So effectively the only way to get 4K out of it is via a PC?

It would make a great huge PC monitor but I don't do any work that demands 4k resolution nor is my PC, while great at 1080P, strong enough to render the latest games in 4K though maybe it could manage slower paced titles such as strategy games at 4K, but how many games actually let you use 4K resolutions, is it just the newest most demanding ones or could you use it to revitalise older titles?

Hmm to buy or not to buy.......

far too small for a 4k tv. if you really want 4k on a budget get this;

pixmania.co.uk/led…tml

Just cos it's 4k, doesn't mean the PQ is actually any good. And at this price (and looking at reviews at some of their other cheapo 4k sets) I doubt it will be. Expect bad/uneven backlighting with plenty lightbleed.. Poor colour uniformity and reproduction. And terrible motion resolution. At higher resolutions, you NEED good motion resolution. Without it, it'll just start to tear like crazy on anything much above a static image. Reliability? This will be the cheapest of the cheap components. iBOOD are Dutch I think? So returning a Chinese TV to a company in Holland? No thanks.

Cheap as chips. But I still wouldn't buy it.

The technical description says DVB-T and not DVB-S, so it's a Freeview tuner. This was on the iBOOD website

Yep it says "DVB-T/C/S2 cable tuner"

DVB-T is the system used by Freeview SD
DVB-C is the system used on cable
DVB-S2 is the system used for high definition satellite

The HDMI inputs are compatible with version 1.4 and then 4K Ultra HD signals up to 30Hz.



Its low refresh rate and high response time means it may not the best choice for PC gaming.

Would have made a great large monitor if it supported Ultra HD @ 60Hz. PPI is slightly higher than a 23" 1080p monitor so clarity wouldn't be an issue with 42" @ 2160p UHD.

did anyone get their 3d glasses with their tv
