That's the beauty of Chinese manufacturing. They own mines in Africa that supply many of the raw materials for the electronic components, massive, vertically integrated supply chains, a labour force that's still amongst the cheapest, hungriest (literally!) and most ambitious in the world ready to work a 12h shift before being asked, and a level of expertise in component assembly that's probably unparalleled anywhere else (have a look at the YouTube videos showing how astonishingly fast a Chinese assembly line worker gets components together, solders them etc).

I know there's less demand,but I'd love this set with 3d.....heated up and thanks for posting :0)

very nice price.

Bought this when it was £350 a few months ago and I am very happy with it. My only complaint is not being able to rearrange and organise the app screen (not sure if there is a way I don't know about), but other than that, very good quality image.

Oh and as someone said in a previous thread, side viewing angles aren't the greatest, but not an issue for me.

I also picked this up at £350 a few months ago. Decent set for the money. 4K Amazon and netflix via built in apps is great. Few issues to mention though:
1) Viewing angles not great but not bad either - just meh.
2) Netflix button will turn on TV but then all apps run in a box (iplayer etc) - I think 1080p? - Annoying bug you can work round by using power button to start TV then hit netflix button - hopefully they'll fix it.
3) You cannot reconfigure app buttons on remote - The Wakui.tv button for me is pointless and I'd far rather have it load Amazon...
4) Few odd slow downs in menu button nothing unbearable
5) ITV/4OD apps playback is flakey at times but I'd put this more down to ITV/Channel 4 - All other services seem fine.

Can you get plex/kodi on this?

Is it worth paying another £45 and getting HDR? I'm looking for a cheap 43" tv, but don't know much about them.

Thanks, very useful. Would you be able to comment on whether you're seeing true 4K on Netflix and Amazon please (there are some test files which provide this information).

I'll see if I can try it tonight however it was definitely higher res than 1080p so I'd be surprised if it wasn't 4k. 1080p upscaled just isn't as sharp. The tick looked great.

HDR isn't a yes/no technology like 4K. There's is a range of HDR ability available and the cheapest TVs that claim HDR have very little of it - just the ability to read HDR files and downscale them to normal SDR hardware. As we're not likely to see any HDR exclusives that's of minimal value.

I suspect other things would be of more influence on the picture quality, although I don't know what the differences between the N5300 and N5500/N5700/N5750 are.

as i said i notice a huge difference in picture quality with hdr, it does nothing apart from give you better more realistic colours. have two tv a big 55 downstairs that doesn't have HDR and a 42 upstairs with HDR and i noticed a big jump in picture quality on the HDR screen on shows that support it on netflix etc or ultra 4k blu rays


This seems to explain it

It's not that HDR does nothing apart from better, more realistic colours. It's that your TV only has the hardware for that.

HDR video also includes better more realistic brightness for highlights, resulting in better contrast and more realism. Displaying these requires a good local dimming system, which is still expensive and 43" models typically don't have that hardware at all (the best have a very limited form).

Much like your TV can't display all of the HDR benefits, so cheaper TVs than yours which claim HDR can't even display the better colours you're seeing.

It's a good technology but communication about it's support and benefits in mainstream TVs has been an omnishambles.

Thanks for the info, I'm happy with the TV for what I paid for it, but at some point I will replace the bigger TV when a good deal for a good 50 plus hdr 4k comes along

Very interesting, wasn't aware of the test files. I have a 4k Netflix subscription and tried the 4k test images. It seems to be displaying 4k for 24fps, 25fps and 29fps. If I try 50 and 60 fps in the test files, the info in the upper right shows 1080.

Pretty sure 24fps is right for movies etc when I check blu rays they are all at 24fps

What's the normal(non hd) freeview picture quality look like?

how long Is guarantee?

2 years

Has anyone used one of these sets for a PC Monitor or Gaming, I was wondering if there was any noticeable lag.

This tv is now £329.00 at Argos. Quidco have 3% cashback on technology. There is also the Now TV box for £10.00. Obviously, it was a better deal a few weeks ago.

But are there currently any better deals on a 43" 4K tv?
