I believe redmi releasing some very big cheap TVs shortly
@MrSwitch morning mate. Now you've sorted me with a Mi 9 Lite (loving it) I am now in need of a TV. Looking at 43 - 50 inch. Preferably 50inch. Not had a TV in years so anything should be an upgrade

How do you think this one compares with hotukdeals.com/dea…888

Also, is Roku a plus to have on TV? Cheers

I believe this is the only non peripheral way of getting Disney+? Can someone confirm. I have a hisense and rate them for value but if I can get Disney plus without using up another hdmi port this might be the way?

Hey @kypsolo good to hear @MrSwitch sorted you out with a phone you're loving, he's a good bloke!

I think you're right, if you've not had a new TV in years, most TVs should be an upgrade and you are spoilt for choice.

Roku is defintely a plus to have on a TV as it has one of the biggest selections of apps on any smart TV platform. It almost offers it all without needing an extra streaming device plugged into your TV.

The Saphi smart system on the Philips is a simpler affair, but covers the main netflix, amazon and freeview play for UK catchup TV. If you really need a lot more choice of channels and still and want the Philips, a cheap streaming stick or chromecast can fill the gap pretty easily.

The Philips covers the newer HDR formats (both Dolby vision and HDR 10+) but at this price bracket I wouldn't place too much importance on it.

The hisense has a VA screen panel which helps with deeper blacks and to my knowledge the Philips should arrive with VA panel but its not always guaranteed - I think even different sizes in this model range have shipped with different panels. Might be worth a call to Richer sounds to see if they can confirm as I'd choose a VA panel over the alternative IPS panel at this price point.

If you think you wouldn't be too fussed about the six year warranty or the Ambilight (some love it, others think it's a bit of a gimmick), save the money and go for the Hisense set. If you want the ambilight feature and six warranty then pay the bit extra - you can always add a streaming stick (if you already have one or buy a cheap one later).

Please let me know if there are any specific questions or requirements you've got

After using firesticks for years I was pleasantly surprised by the Roku interface. It's alot easier to understand for parents etc. The only thing missing is Britbox as they haven't released the app for it yet :/
Which is better Philips ambilight or hisense??

@Mrsweet Thank you so much. That was very helpful! Cheers @MrSwitch for introducing us.

@Mrsweet I'm looking to use TV to play downloads from a hard drive, use these apps - Netflix, Amazon Prime YouTube and Disney + (which is new).

I'm also able to get ebay.co.uk/itm…255 for £315. Would that change anything?

Hisense Roku 50 inch £284.05 vs Philips Ambilight 50 inch £315?
Anyone else having difficulty ordering the TV? I get this message when trying to purchase it:

This seller is currently away, and isn't processing orders at this time. You can add this item to your Watch list to keep track of it.

Thanks.

No problem at all and I'm glad if it helped a little

As this makes the price and warranty much more similar, can I ask if you have a streaming stick at the moment that supports Disney+? If you don't then that will be an extra cost with the Philips to get, so unless you're really keen on the ambilight feature I'd lean towards the hisense.

Thanks for the quick reply. I don't have a streaming stick at all I've got a Disney + paid subscription though. It says in the below link that Philips smart tvs have a Disney + app.

I'm not massively bothered about Ambilight, just really looking for the best TV between the 2. Best picture/screen/ease of use apps wise etc. Also sound as I won't be using a soundbar.

That's okay

One of the tvs in the house runs Saphi so I have double checked for you and there is no Disney app yet (we've got a few different brands of TV)

I think they might be on about the Philips TV's using Android TV - and not the Philips that run Saphi.

Even though there have been some cracking Philips deals lately, Hisense still edge it imo at this price range for picture quality, and the Roku is a strong and easy to use option for apps. There's loads of free and paid apps available on Roku.

Having listened to all what you've said, I definitely think you'd be happiest with the Hisense between the two models. Audio is also very respectable on the Hisense.
@Mrsweet
Sorry to bother you, mate

I ended up buying this TV. Absolutely love it.

I have one issue - I get what I think is motion/ghosting/blurring on things like Iplayer and amazon prime apps.

Do you have any best practice picture settings?

It's like the highlights are all moving about, especially in a dark setting/scene - I've not noticed it on Netflix yet.

Hiya @kypsolo and you're not bothering me at all, I hope you're well!

It's good to hear that overall, you're really enjoying your TV!

When you say the highlights are moving about, is it like the image is trailing a little bit?

If you haven't already, I would try turning off the 'Noise Reduction' setting as I know this can be a contributing factor on some hisense models to the very problem you are describing. Practically all tvs of all prices can be susceptible to slight issues that need taming through the settings and the TV you got does remain really good.

I would also try turning off as much of the other processing as you can, whilst still getting a picture you are happy with.

I would also have motion setting as low as you are possibly happy with to reduce breakdown of the image. And if you have adaptive contrast on that model, try 'off' or 'low'.

Each TV panel, even of the exact same model, can have some variance. However, a couple of people I know who bought hisneses (7500 models) in the last year who also found the dark scenes looked a little more pleasing when they nudged up the gamma one or two settings.

The fact you've not noticed it in netflix does make you wonder if it might also be I some way linked to the way the different streaming sites are currently compressing the images during lockdown, or if its down to the quality of the particular content being played (if the TV is trying to improve content not naturally great e.g. Older SD programmes on BBC Iplayer).

It may take a little time and trial and error, but I'd be really interested to hear how you get on! If you're still having issues, and you let me know what you've tried, we can go from there and try and get things better for you.
