I posted one the other day hotukdeals.com/dea…421 which was £429
The biggest problem was it was pixmania so most wouldnt go near it.
I'm voting this hot but now I'm going to wait. The next week should hopefully see all the sale offers on 4k if any.
Keep posting your 4k deals if you see any.

INB4 4k moaners.

Great deal, wish I had that kinda money to spare at this time of year!!

Heat added and a 50 inch for £699 seems great value also

Looks good for the money. What's Philips like for TVs these days?

is it curved ?

Its because they're no longer co owned by Dixons Retail (PCWorld etc) and so you have to send returns to their abroad address which will take time and customer service sucks

no your need one of these

You get what you pay for with these TV's, half arsed quality and a poor panel.

So only HDMI 1.4 and no HEVC support (e.g. for 4K Netflix)? Pass!

Am I right in thinking that human eyes cannot detect the improvement in this 40" screen size against 1080p?

You definitely would be able to tell the difference.

It, of course, depends on viewing distance. If, say, you are using a 40" screen as a computer monitor, bolted to the wall at the back of a metre-wide work-surface, then I guess that you could justify 4k.

So that's one yes - and one no

Not sure about 40" but I know at 46" text looks naff on my samsung. Get up close, see the jagged edges, if you can't see them from afar then UHD has no benefit for you (get an eye test too just in case)

4k TV....thank god its got a Scart Connection.... ho ho ho

Looks like I was right, it's called visual acuity :-

But that's not what you asked, you CAN tell the difference, but if you're sat a mile away from the TV then obviously you won't, it ain't rocket science.

"Conclusion

Unfortunately, 4k isn't ready for prime time. You need a really big TV to see the difference, 4k content is rare and of low quality, upscaled 1080p content doesn't improve the quality and current 4k TVs don't fully support all the latest specs. Save yourself some money and upgrade in a few years or get a bigger TV for less instead."

Steer clear I'm on my third one of these !!! All of a sudden it goes off (not a standby mode !!) and then there's no way to ever get the power back on rubbish item and my two broken lasted less than 30 days !!!

Now owned by TPV, who took 100% ownership of Philips tv division and now license the name. Alas the days of Aureas, 21:9, miravision tv etc, when Philips truly innovated within the tv industry appear to be gone, such a shame as I was a big fan, when it was proper Philips.

TBH, I'd have asked for a refund after the second went down! Hopefully you returned to the retailer and not manufacturer?

Who on earth is voting this hot.....I have to assume the mob that rushed Asda on Black Friday in their shell suits fighting for a £300 1080p no brand TV....

Im sorry but you get what you pay for...4K is relatively new tech......if it was £100 they would sell loads but it doesn't mean its any good...the reason they are still selling so many 1080p Full HD sets is that the top end ones are generally better than even some of the well branded but low end 4K sets (Panasonic and Samsung).

To be honest, the people buying these won't even be watching 4K media anyway...there is nothing available in disc format available regardless of price, only Netflix and Amazon prime have 4K streaming and that requires certain codecs onboard the TVs themselves which this TV and many of the cheaper sets don't have (and even some of the higher priced sets (Panasonic 55 inches don't have the required codecs as of yet)

I personally still don't really see the point of 4K yet unless you have a 4k stream to watch and its stuff you have already seen...I loved Breaking bad but really wouldn't watch it all again just because its available in 4K....same goes for House of Cards Im afraid.

You get what you pay for peeps, and unfortunately, you cannot polish a turd...steer clear.....COLD COLD COLD

That's your opinion whereas I have a 4k TV and have rewatched Breaking Bad and House of Cards in UHD simply because the detail in the picture is incredible.

Or......wait for 10 years, maybe even 20 years! and get one for £99! or maybe even free to collector!

OR.............wait until you die! then you won't need one at all!

I also think its not just about the pixels. There are people out there that would like a smart capable 3dtv with ambilight and also have some future proofing. You could argue the other way as to why any one would want to buy a tv (1080 and 720) when they are old hat and being phased out. Depending on their eyesight and distance a 4k tv will make a lot of difference to some peoples viewing pleasure.

Extreme MUCH, what part of the conclusion do you disagree with then?

Nope, who ever originally came to that conclusion probably hasn't seen both side by side. I upgraded to a 27" 4k monitor from 1080p and the difference is night and day.
Edited by: "GoatzRus" 24th Dec 2014

If you're buying this as a monitor or for gaming, then I would avoid it as it's input lag is terribly high.

I disagreed with the wait a few years part.

There will be 4k blurays soon enough, personally not interested if TV isn't broadcast in 4k for another 5 years tbh, may improve bluray sales

Most high end samsung TV's have evolution kits that you plug in the back, so can simply upgrade your 4k TV in the future without having to buy a new one

Reduced now to £479.99

Just been looking at the options for 40ish inch 3d smart 4k tvs and there is really only one that I can find
PANASONIC VIERA TX-40AX630B is £599 most places i looked.

lg then do a 49" at £899ish

Pixmania now 419

The lg was on here and £699 with 5yr warranty
