​Not sure how they can just add HDR through an "update".

Like saying I bought a 720p laptop but they sent out an update and now it's 1080p.

Most of the recent Hisense TV's have had ota hdr updates. I know its not top spec hdr but for £490 you wont get much better

What like Sony did with PS4 and Samsung with 2015 UHD TV Range have both also recently done...

The hardware is HDR capable so they send out a firmware update to enable it.

pixel count is a physical thing, you can't increase the number of pixels via an update, but you can update the firmware to enable more functions if the hardware can handle it.

If only my TV would break, I'd get it!

Does anyone know how this compares to the 5XXX series?

I've been using mine for a couple of weeks now and its mightily impressed me. Having owned a 65K5510 this 58" is better in pretty much every respect. Build quality is exceptional, sound is far better and the panel is more uniform and with better blacks thanks to local dimming which actually works wonders. As for the HDR update, I've not loaded any new firmware as I'm not particularly bothered. Chances are this TV does indeed have a 10bit Panel inside it as the company that manufactures them only does 58" Panels at 10bit 100/120Hz. I only wished I'd bought the 65" K700/730 earlier in the year and not waited for the K5510. You're best off digging through this thread for firmware info:

Question is the six circular vents on the back speakers or are they fans?

Word of warning about AO.com.

I just called them to ask about returns if I don't like the TV.
If you don't turn the TV on, returns are free and you get a full refund within 30 days of purchase.
If you do turn the TV on, AO.com retains 45% of the TV's value as "we can't see a used tv".

I'm hoping I can find this for sale elsewhere that will price match.

EDIT: This is really frustrating... Nowhere else sells it, and there's no other 4KTV with passive 3 that even comes close to this in terms of price...

Is there nowhere that has the same TV instore so you can try it?

Personally I'd never buy a TV without first testing instroe with a USB stick loaded with a selection of media....
Don't just go by the mage qaulity on the in store demo either...all TV's look nice playing a 1080p/4k animation etc...

Test low bitrate media as this is this will show you how good the TV's upscaling quality is...despite there being plenty of HD channels now there are still times when you'll be watching something in SD and some large screen 4k TV's realy aren't very good with SD material

Two of the three round vents on on each side are speakers, the bottom grill is blanked out on both sides - it has four speakers and no fan.




I returned a TV a few weeks back due to a fault. They collected next day and refunded in full later that very day. As long as the TV has a fault, no matter how intermittent it is they'll refund you. Example a line on the screen that shows up now and again or its randomly switching itself off - if you know what I mean

This is active 3D btw.

Hey are speaker on my 65" so will be the same on the 58". They produce great sound for TV speakers.

Apparently AO are the only people that even sell this model anymore for some reason.
It seems to get good reviews from people, but as much as I want it, I don't think I'll get it...

Edited by: "Proxish" 4th Dec 2016

Now I just need to see if I can find answers to my last few questions dotted about forums, which are:

Has the new firmware update introduced EPG? (The ability to view the TV schedule)
Can you get Freeview Play? (Via the App Store(I've read about the place the TV has an App Store of sorts))
Is the USB DVR function any good? (Can you record multiple channels, or at least record one channel while surfing another?)
Can you get access to NowTV via the built in App Store?

Is this a better picture then the hisense 3300?

I nearly pulled the trigger on a 55M7000, what's the differences??

How does this compare?

Couple of bad reviews on Amazon?

​It wont be hardware capable at this price. The firmware updates merely allow the tv to process the hdr signal. The panel has to be 10 bit whether the firmware gets updated or not to actually display HDR correctly.

Unfortunately this has not been explained very well, and manufacturers are quite happy to stick HDR on their boxes despite not being able to display the extra colours.

They can't as they can't update the hardware from 8 bit to 10 bit, so it's nonsense.

What a deal

Ordered. I am a realist, this will not be the best TV going. There may be issues. For the price though, the only complaint I can make is that the wife is going to kill me.

Tempted but there are so many Hisense models floating about HUKD it's hard to know what difference there is. Still looking at the 55M7000 for £679..

I'm tempted with that one I wonder if John Lewis will Price match

They price matched the 55M7000 with me for Crompton and Moore, but they wouldn't match with the 20 quid voucher code, so only 699 match by John Lewis.

RS will match it from John Lewis also.

I'm hoping they match the 55m7000 for me too

do you get glasses with this tv

​not good

Another good TV deal

Looks interesting especially with the firmware update, 3d and being 58".
Seeing if i can get a part refund on a digihome i bought, if not will consider this if i send it back.
reviews here.
although it seems good on paper it seems there are faults with it which is putting me off.
for sale on boots and found reviews here

Interesting that the boots review above if the exact same as the 1 star review from Amazon. Copied and pasted?

​got anymore details on the pros/cons of this and the 5500. Im torn between this or the 65 5500 one?

Hows the 3d and does it do a decent job of upscaling SD content?

The 58" has better sound, deeper blacks, better screen uniformity and overall build quality. The screen is also more glossy which I prefer over the mostly matt panel the 65" 5510 used. It also has more features, local dimming which gives contrast a boost (really well) and Active 3D. It also handles motion better, with the 65" I noticed trailing and ghosting on darker content.

The 65" is bigger and the menu system is a little quicker than the 58" Don't get me wrong for the money, its good but the 58" is better in pretty much every respect.

Upscaling is fine, both TV's do a fine job of Upscaling SD and 1080i content - that's one of the first things I noticed on the 65" while watching question time of all things.

I've only tried 3D once and wasn't very impressed as the image had lots of cross talk. That said I was playing back a SBS film off a slow flash drive using Samsung Glasses so there could be a number of reasons why it was very underwhelming.

​Thanks a lot its really hard to find consistent reviews on these let alone direct comparisons.

Shame about the 3d issues, I was worried it might be a write off in that area.

Ita interesting that they are matte/glossy. Any info on if the 58 is a big difference reflection wise in the day. Also are the viewing angles good/bad for either? The one benefit of my current tv is that its IPS and looks good from awkward angles on my corner couch.
