4K Ultra High Definition
To respond to screens getting bigger, brands have packed their screens with more pixels. This 50” screen has four times the number of pixels than 1080p Full HD TVs, delivering stunning realism, natural motion and incredible detail.

High Dynamic Range
Forays into contrast and colour-boosting High Dynamic Range (HDR) have begun, and Hisense are no exception. With this set’s 8-bit panel, they’ve delivered top-shelf HDR to deepen your view and show shades previously unseen in home entertainment. Expanding light, dark and every colour in between to extraordinary new levels, this model’s picture gets closer to real life.

Features:

TruSurround Audio by DBX: creates an immersive sound-scape, for a more excitingly absorbing viewing experience.

Complete Connections: with HDMI 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports this TV is laden with high-quality connections to become your complete home entertainment hub.

Seamless Smart Platform
This set’s Hisense Smart platform is run by a rapid quad-core processor, so you’ll browse seamlessly. Do anything from streaming 4K shows on Netflix and Amazon, keep up with the weather on Accuweather or play clips on YouTube. With one-touch remote control access and customisable launcher there’s plenty of apps to keep you entertained including Wuaki.tv, Plex, Facebook and Twitter.* Download the RemoteNOW app (iOS and Android) to turn your smart device into a handy remote and cast content from your phone or tablet to the TV.

Freeview Play
This Hisense TV features Freeview Play. Combining catch-up TV, on-demand services and live TV channels, watching what you want, when you want, is now easier than ever. It’s free from subscription and is compatible with existing broadband services too. Services such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and Demand 5 are also available without having to open specific applications. This will give effortless scroll back so you never miss a second of your favourite shows.

Perfect partners
With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller, choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Soundbars enhance your TV’s sound quality and add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.
Take a look at our full range of soundbars.

Don’t forget...
If you want to connect your TV to a blu-ray player, games console, soundbar or soundbase then you’ll need a HDMI cable.

I think so but if you read the comments on any tv deal on HUKD - trust me you’ll end up buying none of them

1- Better display area ( 94.13% vs 92.82% )

I'd like to understand how the 50A6500 differs from the A6200 range (apart from silver trim) - does anyone know?

Likewise I'd love to know.
it could be the year that the TV model was made.
Appears almost identical apart from colour
think the A6500 has a sports mode,some type of motion process so should be the same as the A6200 but with better motion but can't find any reviews also like to know what the input lag is.do john lewis still have a good returns policy as tempted to buy the 65a6500 but don't want to be stuck with a set with banding,dse,stuck pixels etc as buying a tv is a lottery

Hard to see £50-100 more value in the A6500 from that comparison (for the 50 inch size)

I’m no expert but the Black Friday idea isn’t all it’s made out to be.
It’s mostly stuff the retailers can’t shift, dated stock in most cases - there is no 100% definite answer to the question because nobody can guarantee this or it’s equivalent will be cheaper in a week or two by which time this deal will be have expired.

I bought the 6250 when it was on offer at Argos.
To be honest I wasn’t expecting it to be brilliant but thought it would do for my lad who mainly uses it for his xbox.
I was wrong in that the set is brilliant for the money.
As I’ve said before it’s not a patch on an LG OLED 4K UHD in terms of picture quality but it’s also only a fraction of the price.
Brilliant build quality, nice and easy to use, fast through the menus which includes Netflix, Amazon and YouTube and a good picture with fair sound.
Well worth it at this sort of price and I am not disappointed!!
What's the upscaling like. I have very little 4k content so am still using a 12 yr old Samsung 1080p screen which is fine in conjunction with a fire stick but would be nice to have features like YouTube etc integrated rather than via the fire stick.
I am always worried that all my content which is mainly 720p and 1080p Blu-ray stuff will look worse after upscaling than playing on native resolution.
few very tempting tv deals over the past few days mainly 50" and the 65" from richer sounds, but i am ideally wanting one for my kitchen wall so maybe 42", is anyone aware of any good 42" deals?

the same question! thank you
this or the amazon deal?
Bought the 49 inch toshiba 49u5863db from JL for 379.99 with 5 yrs warranty,
Just wondering i got the better deal or is this one better, please comment.
Can the stand legs move inwards or is it fixed? Looks like a good price for the tv but my current tv stand isnt wide enough
Thanks for this just what by 12 year old wanted for Christmas, moving from a 15 year old 26" samsung he will be over the moon!
How would a budget TV such as this compare to a Pioneer Kuro (50", plasma, 1080p, no HDR) from at least a decade ago? Not sure whether this would an upgrade or a downgrade.

+1 until it goes wrong or you have a 4k OLED and can get a decent amount of 4k feeds/sources at a decent price...
any similar with 100 or 120 hz

They don't make em like they used to'. In this case your Plasma is going to be much better.

The real question to ask yourself is if you’re happy with the toshiba you’ve bought.
Specs on TV’s are changing fast as are the prices’ if I was you having just bought one I’d avoid posts on tellys in all honesty.

Would be interesting to see a side by side Comparison. I remember the Kuros were a few years ahead in terms of PQ don't know how years of use has degraded the image from new

Pretty sure the Tosh will be a rebranded Vestel panel, so if it was me, this Hisense would be the better choice. 1" bigger, but £20 more. Many years ago when Toshiba was Toshiba, they made many award winning TV's, now sadly there just the same as any other no name brand. Hisense make some well reviewed sets and if calibrated, will be a good choice.

Looks like the only difference is the bezel, and this one can receive Freeview HD and has dual band wifi (2.4ghz & 5ghz).

Don't they both have wifi and freeview HD? Also why does the Currys one say 2TB HD and the John Lewis says no hard drive, surely the John Lewis one must also have a harddrive.

You need to look at the Hisense 55U7A for the cheapest 120Hz panel. The Sony 85 series or above is 100Hz but they're far from cheap. The Samsung NU8000 series also has 100Hz but only in sizes 55 or above

thanks for that been looking but its says 50hz in richersounds website

The Richer Sounds website is wrong, the Hisense 55U7A has a 120hz refresh rate. It's the cheapest way to get 120 Hz ( the 50 inch version is only 60 Hz though)
spot on thanks very much
