I'm not a fan of 3D, just doesn't do anything for me, each to their own of course!

shame i bought a new TV a few months back, would be all over this otherwise.
Nice, waiting in a decent 65" price. Heat added
this good for gaming?

Can't be that bad. It's being advertised pretty hard in the Euros right night. 'China's most popular electronic brand' or something.

​yes it isn't
damn. I paid 700 for this at new year >.<.
Youre better going for this years model (2016) yes its only 55 not 58 and you lose the 3d, but it's a much better tv and the software is a million times better....... the smart functions are actually of use this time around.

This tv doesn't do 4k from youtube and there is no amazon app at all......... plus the store is full of geman crap thats no use here.

Good price if you just want a new tv and aren't really bothered about streaming / future updates/ on demand etc

This brand getting loads of publicity via the euros as its one of the main sponsors. China's number 1 TV brand apparently. Can't be that bad.
3rd biggest TV manufacturer in the world. Not rubbish by any means. Pay the extra 100 odd quid and go for the 65"

I personally wish TVs didn't have any smart features.. theyre always crap. it's much better to add your own stuff like Chromecast etc.

China will have built many many items in your house without you knowing. Low prices.

PS Check out AO's returns policy before pressing that buy button. Fore-warned is fore-aremed and all that...

PAID £550 3-4 months ago very happy with it,
if you're interested in this television, don't be put off by the comments here: just buy yourself a Chromecast (or a Nvidia Shield).

The only negative about this TV is the smart capabilities IMO.

As for what the TV is meant to be actually used for everyday, it's immense. UHD picture is great, and it upscales HD footage to 4k. Speakers are actually quite good too.

Okay, maybe the remote feels a bit cheap and the back of the TV too, but when have you ever seen someone walk into your living room and comment "oh the back of the TV is very plasticky".

So basically in your mind it's good because they have money to advertise? That makes sense, you should get 2.
Does it really weigh 33kg? The equivalent samsung weighs 16kg. A bit concerned about having 33kg hanging off the wall...

It is heavy.
4k through youtube link on remote is brilliant.
Stutters very slightly on all settings but game.
Bttv 4k through it is useless.
Upscaling is brilliant.
Cheap but good.

Yes, unbelievable eh?
I put it on game, watch via bt tv. Picture superb and 58inch is a good size. Cheap too.
Nice fill in until the 65 inch oled arrives
Oh and update is promised by Hisense tech boys......(_;)
Nice price, heat added
Awful tv even at that price, I sent mine back! Better buy is the 65" which is the latest model & excellent all round, yes it costs more but you get what you pay for. I definitely wouldn't recommend the 58".

It probably is rubbish as it uses active shutter glasses. Passive 3D is much better as long as you're sat at the correct height.
How do these compare to the "Philips" 4K TV's Argos are selling?

Wouldn't worry about that had a 60" LG Plasma that was about 50kg! So
Got the 65" model, picture quality is amazing.

Philips better make but it's not a smart TV
Ordered
Added this here as well as we have two topics for the same deal following a change in promotion (was £40 off yday, now 10% off today)

Be aware of long-term faults on the 2015 models (bar the entry level K321/EC591),. of which this is one:

- no 4k/60fps compatibility on the 2 HDMI 2.0 sockets
- no Amazon Video
- media player only plays in full screen
- issues with Plex (may be a Plex issue in fairness to Hisense)

The top fault is key with the launch of Ultra HD Blu-ray players from Sammy and Panasonic (and the Xbox One S soon), as well as the Nvidia Shield and the BT Ultra HD box, and therefore probably Sky Q too.

This fix has been promised since the turn of the year and is now sketchily pencilled in for 'July' and, comically, delayed for another month at the end of each month.

Interestingly, Hisense have revealed this model (also known as 58K700 - this partiuclar model AO is selling is the EU version which is perfectly fine for us....well until next Thursday at least ;)) may get an HDR update of sorts, but I suspect this will be limited to USB and possibly streaming. Should be possible to bypass the 60fps issue with a HDFury if you happen to have one lying around...

There is a Hisense France beta firmware doing the rounds which allegedly fixes the 4K/60fps and media player issues but no-one has reported back for definite yet.

I have a keen interest in Hisense's development and suspect they will be the next Samsung. However, there are issues with all bar their entry level models and a bizarre approach to releasing worldwide models, with features changing between territories making it almost impossible to compare.

This year has already seen the release of two rather confusing models, the 65K5510 which appears to be a relaunched version of the 65 inch version of this model minus the 3D but with local HDR playback and Amazon Video out of the box (and can be had for £799, probably less if the AO discount works on that model too - Owners thread avforums.com/thr…992 ), and the humungous 75M7900 (owners thread avforums.com/thr…72/ ) which is a 2016 model number but seemingly with 2015 model specs.

Other models launched in 2016 are the entry level M3000 range (which are incredibly cheap and cheerful, again alleging HDR for local playback and streaming - owners thread avforums.com/thr…17/ ), and within the next week or so the M7000 (owners thread avforums.com/thr…60/ ) which is what Hisense call a ULED model (Ultra LED), ie. a step up but again seemingly missing a number of key features upon release.

All very confusing, model number wise.

This has the makings of a good interim telly for those waiting to pounce once OLED prices become more sensible (and the wrinkles are ironed out on the tech) but caveat emptor - there are firmware issues which mean this is still a half-formed product.

Owners thread for this model (aka K700) at avforums.com/thr…50/

Quick question as not sure if this has been mentioned. Does this play mkvs via usb for external drives? I've got an old Samsung tv from about 3/4 years ago and it plays 90% of MKVs thrown at it. The absence of this would be a deal breaker for me personally.
