Title says it all really.


I've been observing the pricing for a while and recently the availability is starting to show signs of reducing.

Generally this is £430 at most places but i think JL are matching the Amazon price but throwing in a 5 year warranty.

In terms of tech i tend to go for more established brands.This will be replacing my 7 year old 37" Sony 1080p set so im expecting to see a jump in quality. Main reason for my interest is because it's the perfect size for the location i want to put it and its the only 45" TV on the market.

I did try Richer Sounds (Leeds) who had 1 in stock I mentioned the price match then all of a sudden that TV had been 'Reserved'... If you can get one from RS then they'll have to better the price by £10, making this £389.99 and give you a 6 Year warranty.

Heres the Richer sounds links if you want to try them

I've gone with John Lewis to save hassle.

Price £399.99 inc free delivery.

That's the LCD panel, which doesn't have much to do with HDR. HDR is primarily about the backlight, it's colour output and local dimming system.

I haven't seen a true 10 bit HDR panel under £800.


I haven't seen one under £800,000. They don't exist.

HDR10, HDR10+ and Dolby Vision use the 10-bit range to specify values in the Rec. 2020 colour space between 0 and 10,000cd/m². They're fixed brightness standards, so if a TV can only produce 1000cd/m² it can only reproduce 769 of the 1024 levels per colour. And that's assuming it has full Rec.2020 coverage and good enough contrast to apply every shade to every part of the screen in a single frame, neither of which are true for any TV currently on the market.

True 10-bit HLG is slightly easier to satisfy as that has no fixed brightness range, but it still requires Rec. 2020 coverage and good enough contrast/control to apply the full range of brightness within a single scene.

We're a long way from true HDR of any sort.


The HDR capabilities of this TV are best described as minimal. There's no improvement in contrast and no improvement in colour. It can read HDR content so the better control of brightness allows it to perform a couple of tricks like flashing the backlight at full brightness for an explosion.

Generally I would ignore HDR at this price range, or consider it a very minor bonus. It's still an expensive tech to do reasonably well.

It's the size 'we' want, according to Hisense:

It seems to have been this price for ages, but not somewhere like JL or RS, heat.

Doesn't everybody?
Bought this from JL before Christmas but paid £429 for it. Very happy so far, just the right size for where it is sited. I have just added a Denon HEOS HomeCinema soundbar from Richer Sounds for £269 which is a great addition and sits nicely underneath, same width too and connects & controls from HDMI-ARC! Although not FreeSat it has a satellite tuner and free to air channels are organized into a channel list with correct numbers which is a bonus.

No need to ask if it's this cheap.
Unless it's the bargain of the year anything near this price isn't going to be true 10 bit HDR.

Double the price of this TV then it is worth asking.
I haven't seen a true 10 bit HDR panel under £800.
Very good price

While I'm sure HDR can help, especially on higher end kit, It looks to me that HDR is yet another reason manufacturers create to make early adopters of 4K to rush out and replace their TV for an HDR model. They're constantly trying to add new 'essential' features to make you replace your TV more frequently than you need to.

Luckily they're relatively cheap and throwaway that people will do this.

Gone are the days when you bought a TV and expected it to last 10 to 15 years

Anyhoo, a 45" 4K TV for £400 seems a fair price to me
Edited by: "spannerzone" 13th Jan
Spent hours in Richer Sounds today agonising over what TV to buy for my 80 year old mums, obviously her requirements are a fair bit different from mine.... I ended up walking out empty handed.

Considering the size of her room I think a 43" would be fine but something a little bigger would be nice... I didn't want to spend more than £400 really and equally I didn't want to buy her complete rubbish. She doesn't need 4K or either Smart features but it needs to be easy to use and she'll like bright vibrant colours offered by say an IPS panel. In RS I looked at various models such as:

LG 43LJ594V 1080P and really ugly looking casing
LG 43UJ630V 4K screen looked OK but again really put off by the ugly blackness of it
Samsung UE40MU6400 Nice looking TV, but I though I was a bit small really and quite expensive
Samsung UE43M5520 Looks really nice (didn't see this on display) but it's only 1080P....so seems expensive
LG 43UJ670V Better looking than the other LG's with a silver bezel but is essentially the same as the others.

The prices in RS compared to other retailers did seem on the high side but then I had to factor in the 6 year guarantee.

There was a Hisense on display, I think the Hisense 49N5700 and to be honest the screen looked washed out compared to the others but they may have been just config/settings.

I'd really appreciate any views or opinions on this TV please, other than the size is there any really difference between the 5700 and 5750 and do these stand up against the competition above?

Also any views on how the 57xx range compares to 43" Hisense 4300 which is £100 less.

Thanks

She might be much less fussy about the design and more concerned about the sound and picture. If she's using the inbuilt speakers then that would be one of my main things to test or if using a soundbar I'd want something simple to integrate nicely (not having to use 2 remotes etc)

Thing is, they’ll look inferior side by side with the more expensive TVs but in isolation they’ll be fine. Even my rubbish Digihome looks OK on the dining room wall.

Samsung UE43M5520 is available with a pricematch through John Lewis for £289. I posted the deal.

Sorry I just had a look and it’s up to £419 at rgb again. Expired. Can you tell me why this tv looked so much better that the budget 4K sets? I’m still undecided on what to buy.

Thanks Suvvey... I'm closely watching the deals on this one as it does seem to tick the boxes.... best I have found and available is £349 on Amazon but the 49" (too big for my mum's room) is much the same price. I did notice that Hughes have sold it it cheaper in the past but most retailers seem to have it in the £400+ bracket..... that's a lot of cash for a full HD only TV.

Got it delivered today but really struggling to get ARC / HDMI control working with my Sony Str-dh820 amp.

Could be a deal breaker.
