Hisense 50M5500 LED HDR 4K Smart TV £499 @ John Lewis/Richer Sounds

Big screen, small price

At a price point where most 4K HDR TVs offer a screen size of around 40", this Hisense hits out with an impressive 50" screen. This makes all the difference, especially with films, where this size of screen truly immerses you in the picture. Thanks to 4K UHD resolution, you can also sit closer than a conventional FHD, 1080p TV, making a big screen a far more realistic proposition in a smaller room than ever before.

5 Years warranty with John Lewis and 6 years at Richer Sounds

Just bought the 50 inch 3300 from Richer for £419 an hour ago after reading reviews on these TVs and finding out who they source parts from.
Free delivery and 6 year warranty for a 4k TV

Read reviews saying picture is great now they've had the HDR upgrade. Everyone saying they very happy and apparently the 4k looks fantastic with the ps4 pro.

So they're saying if you view mainly preview ie standard def and 1080i material you're still better of getting Full HD set over 4K because of the upscaling problem right?

I'm looking for a tv to watch mostly standard def. Is there any you would recommend? I dont play video games so not worried about how games play....thanks

I have this TV and standard definition is quite muddy. Use HD or the ps4 pro and it's awesome. I went on YouTube and ran a 4k video and was amazed at how good it was. Great value for money though.

This is the problem I think that many like me who don't play games on the tv, still like a lot of material on freeview which will never be remastered to even HD and don't want to fork out for Sky Q or don't even get a decent broadband to stream 4K let alone HDR - and from what I've researched, any 4K tv whether OLED or top of the range LED the fact that it has to (guess) through software to fill in the pixels, let alone the distance from the tv for viewing 4K, makes it a bit of a waste of time? I'm now thinking again to try and get a (good) Full HD set if there's still any around. Very confused.com. haha

I have a Hisense TV but will probably get a Seiki next. My parents have a Seiki and the picture quality is as good as a Samsung if not better.

Not much in it, apart from price IMO. If you are getting the 42" Sony I'd say go for it. If it's the larger models I wouldn't bother as they are IPS panels.

​Yeah I've got the 43" for £500. i like it as it's an VA panel but this did look good.

Was wondering. As I use this for my ps4, is the game/pc mode always better as I've noticed some motion blur when playing??

​wow thank you also

Hi I have bought this tv. I have connected hdmi to my skybox hdmi port 3. Problem is my video image is not clear blurry. Can some one tell me how to change the video display settIngs make picture crisp clear. I have no clue what to change. Pleas help

are you looking at standard Def TV that will be abit blurry due to the pixels being stretched try some Hd channels to test, it could be the cable if its a really old one, had that issue on my Samsung TV and sky, but most likely it'll will probly be a settings have a play around you can always reset it if everyone turns orange or something

Sky my tv is on Dynamic mode. Also can we install kodi on this tv. My YouTube is also blurry videos. I have no clue how to use this tv my first day using this tv

This or the HiSense 50M3300 - I can't see the difference between the two other than the M5500 claiming it has HDR but it's 8bit panel.
