Price drop was £299.

Don’t miss out on your favourite TV. With Freeview Play on board, the smart Linsar 43UHD8000FP lets you catch-up when it suits you.

See every detail, with UHD 4K resolution
With four times the resolution of Full 1080p HD, 4K (UHD) TV offers stunning detail and resolution for totally life-like realism. You can now get a huge range of content in UHD 4K, including UHD Blu-ray, gaming and TV. Another advantage with this higher resolution TV is that, because the pixels are smaller than FHD TVs, you can sit closer to the TV before you lose definition – making this Linsar 43 inch TV ideal as a second TV.

Smart TV via wi-fi

Connect to your internet via Ethernet or wi-fi and you get access to wide range of smart TV. The intelligent remote control offers direct access to YouTube, where you can enjoy all your video favourites – on the big screen. A further button accesses Freeview Play, giving you access to all the popular catch-up TV services.

Freeview Play for catch-up TV

Freeview Play makes catch-up TV easy. Find programmes from BBC iPlayer, the ITV Hub, All4 and My5 sitting alongside over 60TV Channels and up to 15 HD channels. Simply scroll back in your TV guide to watch shows you missed from the last 7 days. Just make sure your TV is connected to the internet and you're good to go.

Fully connected for sources, old and new

Featuring three HDMI sockets, the Linsar has got all your home entertainment connected – including Blu-ray player, games console and set-top TV box. Twin USBs sockets are provided for media devices. You’ll also find a SCART socket, which is perfect for connecting older devices and much harder to find on many current TVs.

PVR USB

One of the USB sockets lets you connect a USB memory stick to use as a PVR. PVR stands for Personal Video Recorder and lets you record TV programmes via the set's Electronic Programme Guide. It can also pause live TV - just like a subscription based set-top box.

Enjoy all the TV you want, when you want, with the Linsar 43UHD8000FP.

How does this one compare to LG OLED?

The TV becomes totally unresponsive to the remote 2 or 3 times a day. Off/on at the mains usually cures it temporarily but it's a real nuisance.



That's because you need to employ the universal cure(s) Deeky. Open the remote, roll the batteries around for a bit like it's really going to do something. Then, give the TV a vigorous 'tap' (replace the word 'tap' with thwack!) on it's side and...

Voila! All cured.

In terms of quality etc
Sorry answered my own question via reading the reviews rather than official spec! Sorry!

They buy in TVs from Vestel so you can check reviews for Finlux, Hitachi, budget Panasonics, Bush, Digihome, Toshiba and many other low priced TVs....

They're low end, budget TVs that usually work OK more or less.

Well the simple answer is that the Linsar will look terrible when compared next to the OLED but the £700+ pounds you saved may be enough to forgive the Linsar. You're asking about comparing two very different products at two ends of the spectrum of products, bottom or the range vs top of the range and a different screen technology,.

When all's said and done, that's a lot of telly for the money - as long as you're not expecting the "best of the best." As spannerzone rightly says - you cannot compare it to something in a different league. It's still a cracking price for what it does offer though.

No Netflix built in which is a bit surprising
I would also like to know if anyone has any information about this tv
Modern TV stands are appalling, knocked mine over and smashed the screen.

If you rent, you don't have the option of putting your TV on the wall.
Anyone know how good Linsar are with the warranty, as I presume 5 of the 6 years warranty is from Linsar, and the extra year provided by Richer Sounds ?

Where’s this, if you don’t mind me asking?
Can’t say I’ve ever heard of ‘linear’ ? Sounds like something I’d expect to see in Asda black sale next to the fruit n veg ! Don’t tell me richer sounds are starting to sell low grade brands ? Have always rated them as the only last shop to go for decent tech ( despise curry’s !)
Thanks OP. These are great budget TVs the Picture is fine, I'd recommend this for most people it will be fine.The onboard tuner, software etc is fine and works well. I've the 75" (Linsar) model and a 43" Vestel (Sharp). CEC and HMDI controls all work fine and like most TVs these are all done at the chipset level. Things like Netflix and Youtube are all from respective companies so there will be no real diffrence.

If you want better imagery invest in an external source like a Humax PVR, etc. TV on board tuners and software is universally poor (e.g LG, Samsung, Panasonic) as the vendors do not update the software that often and the components are build to a price. The picture quality from the on board tuners while acceptable is not the best and an external HDMI source from a tuner can provided much better pictures.

Sure this TV is not an OLED. If you don't calibrate your TV then don't bother with the OLEDs get something like this. LED-LCDs are great for situations with poor light control. We have the 75" model in a boardroom where the is light from the windows (blinds are not blackout) ours came with a 4k Roku stick which was a nice addition. Take the time to setup the TV for the sources you have we have a PC with a 4k screen and took 5 minutes to adjust the colour profile for better results.Delivery from Richer was 10/10 2 man crew it was 75". Vestel make the TVs for Panasonic (low end models) and others and the quality of all TVs power supply etc has reached a level where its hard to tell one from another.

Samsung, Panasonic and LG used to be better quality and they still are for the high end models. In the mid to lower end there is not much in it these days.

Richer is a top retailer and I'd have no issues recommending this Brand, I've a LG OLED, Kuro and LG Plasma and a Sharp (Vestel) unit in the kitchen which we use daily. We don't use the internal tuner on any of the TVs and use active speakers not the built ones - Any speakers in TVs are mediocre at best.

If you are so inclined and able an option is to use a Rasberry Pi (Rasberry Pi4 recommended more CPU and ethernet) with TV Head-end and a HD TV tuner and SAT Tuner are a good cheap option as you can get FreeSAT+FreeView+Youtube (No ads)+iplayer using Libreelec but only if you're technically able.

Only reason to buy this is if you were considering getting it from Robert Dyas (cheeky fkrs - £369.99)
Just goes to show how much padding there is in the high street's prices.

For a couple of squid more than this Richer Sounds deal, get yourself a HiSense H43B7300UK @ Argos for £250
or the same coinage for the HiSense H43B7100 with 6 years warranty at Richer.
or manufacturer refurbished for £239 on Amazon Marketplace or Electrical-Deals UK (who seem to have plenty of refurbed units)

Word of caution for anyone considering buying this - concerning the warranty.

I was waxing lyrical about the Linsar I bought in previous deals (not the same model as this one); for the price it seemed great value. Picture is decent and it'll play HDR content. However 6 months in and it's developed a nasty fault where multiple horizontal lines appear on the screen for the first 15 minutes or so of use (they seem to go away when the TV has "warmed up"). More lines have appeared over time and they are staying on the screen for longer so, yeah, this issue is going to get worse.

I bought it from CO-OP electrical (who went bust). The manufacturer Linsar (who also went bust) were acquired by a fairly shady company called Tempo who are giving me a hard time over the warranty. They flatly refused a refund (they said they would offer a replacement). Then they said they couldn't find my model and would source me a different TV. Then they said they HAD found my model and would deliver it within 48 hours.... then, nothing. Got in touch with them again and they've started the whole thing off again looking for a replacement. Basically sending me round in circles. Not sure what level I have to escalate it to from here (trading standards?) but this "5 year warranty" appears to be a scam.

My advice would be to avoid this manufacturer. At the time I bought mine it seemed like a calcuated risk but it's just not worth messing about with to save a few quid.
I've got the 65"' of this, it's really good for the price!
The sound is pants tho, definitely invest in a soundbar or something.
I'm getting a replacement as someone from warehouse to here, something put a hole in the box.
Richersounds sending a replacement out. Cant complain

Thanks for posting, we have added this to the Highlights page
Linsar? never heard of them.
A retailer is entitled to offer a repair rather than a replacement.... however richer sounds arrange their own warranty cover... although it can take a while to be repaired their service is very good... my dad bought a hisense from richer sounds which broke after 4yrs... it was repaired twice without quibble.... great service from an established retailer.

Percussive maintenance
Bought the 55inch version about a year ago and for the price you just can't complain, has the occasional hiccup with the guide etc but still looks great when watching 4k stufd
