Is it 3d by chance?
Great price Heat🔥
COLD for me i wouldn’t wanna pay this much for non 4k tv
Where is the is it vestel brigade.
The very best FullHD money can buy.
You'll get some cold votes because it isn't 4k - but if people aren't sitting within 2m of their TV they don't actually get the benefit from 4k anyway!
Have some heat
Cheapest I’ve seen great find
​Kind of agree and disagree with that. One of the advantages of a 4k tv is a lot of them upscale lower resolution to 4k (obviously not as good as native 4k) but a drastic improvement over the original image resolution. So even if you don't have 4k content you will still see an improvement.

I can tell the difference between 480p/720 and 1080p sat 3m away from a 55" tv. The difference between 1080p and 4k is less noticeable but you can still see it. The biggest difference is when it has HDR too.

I kind of find it hard to see where this tv fit's into the market at this price. Someone who knows the benefits of OLED over LCD is probably already going to have a Full HD tv, £1k just for deeper blacks is a lot of money. Most people who have a anything lower than 1080p tv will generally just go for 4k at this price.
Is this FULL HD ? Then -

I mean, you can't magically create detail that isn't there. Upscaling an image has zero benefits in terms of picture quality. It can only possibly make it worse. A 1080p source should look better on this than one of the 4K OLEDs of the same size, simply because it'll be native. As good as upscaling technology is these days, it's never perfect and inevitably introduces softness to the image. Upscaling lower resolution sources isn't really a perk of 4K TVs - it's simply a necessity for them to be able to display lower resolution content without letterboxing. A native 1:1 pixel mapping will always be superior.

Correct.

He is also wrong about being able to notice the difference between 4k and 1080p at 3m+ too.

No he's not, and also you CAN magically create detail. Imagine a 2x2 grid of pixels.

1 0
1 1

Then upscale that to 4x4

1 0 0 0
1 1 0 0
1 1 1 0
1 1 1 0

Imagine those two images the same size (hard to represent in text). Which looks better?

It's very clever interpolation that makes the best upscalers look good. Image processing is a lot more complex than you may think.

If it was upscaled very basically via pixel doubling to

1 1 0 0
1 1 0 0
1 1 1 1
1 1 1 1

It wouldn't look as good (assuming it's meant to look like a triangle, rather than a step). It's the job of the upscaler to make the best guess as to what should be there.

"Assuming it's meant to look like a triangle" and that's the problem right there. The upscaler has no idea whether it was or wasn't, so it guesses and your sharp text suddenly gets mushier than if the upscaler had done pure pixel doubling.

Then again an upscaler could do well in a movie so I guess it's nice to have so long as it can be turned off but is it worth paying £400 extra for the potential to upscale? Heck no. It will become worthwhile when there's plentiful 4k content though.

Yes there is truth in that. It's a guess, and if there's a frame before and a frame after, you can make a better guess. And with more colour information than 1 or 0, you can make a better guess. And in sports mode, you know things are going to change fast so you can change your algorithm. It's about making the best guess. A digital "spot the ball" competition if you like.

Is it worth £400? Perhaps. Close call really. There is quite a bit of 4k content with sports and movies now, and it's only going to increase. Spending £1k and "saving" £400 is a false economy. Better off just holding out for a while if £1400 is too much, or get a decent LED 4k TV.
This would also not be HDR.

The reviews of Tvsandmore make me feel nervous as well.

I understood this and am sat <2m from my device so it looks good
A grand for a 1080p seems a bit mad to me, but I guess if that’s what you’re after.

If you've only got 1K and have already sold a kidney, I'd still pick this over a 4K LCD.

Personally, I'd go 1K plus kidney and get the 4K OLED.
Did anyone buy this and have any feedback. Tough to find any reviews on this
