Wish it was amberlight!

amazing price for a biggish 4k tv. Heated!

The listing is a bit scant on side-on pictures. Wonder if it is phat. Will check later when I am not on mobile.

When this was on before people were taking it back poor picture etc

£329 for 49" 4k

No brainer, good brand too (I have a standard full HD Phillips)

Heat

looks good..thanks

I got the 43 inch version just after christmas and it's a fantastic tv. haven't experienced any issues

An amberlight would drive me crazy
I like the sound of the AmbiLux feature on their new sets though. Could be a while until we see those going for £329 though.

Better to go straight to Argos to get this and claim a free £10 voucher in process, a lot of stores have it in stock to take home straight away

Non Smart but with that price , you can pick up a fire stick etc.. Cheap enough or even plug into a console/PC for the features. Heat added.

**** TV so many come back to be sent back as a damaged item. poor pannel quality , flickering , HDMI issues you name it

Heat!!

Why bother making cheap screens with crap angles, bulky surrounds, terrible processing, awful upscaling, fake brand naming, 4k but not good enough for 4k BR, dirty screen effect on horizontal and stripes on vertical panning. Jesus you might as well put the money down as a deposit on something good. Also 1080p looks bad on this. I returned mine.

avoid this pile of dog poo at all costs you have been warned

The HDMI issue has apparently been fixed with a software update, but it's not a 'real' 4K tv.

I had the latest firmware and experienced hdmi issues, but only when manually pulling the hdmi cable out then putting back in. (no picture). Had to restart the device. Not a big deal and not many would need to do it.

It has a great picture in daylight use so if using as a compute monitor only its great. If you intend watching a lot of Movies/TV on it unfortunately the Black levels are poor in low lighting which is why mine got sent back and i expect the reason this model has dropped in price a lot recently. Myself and many others returning i mean.
It had poor angles too. It Had a yellowish tint in the top right and left corner at not lo large an angle. Again only really visable in low lighting.

​not worth its salt

It's not a good set people. The 4K HDR protocol is only really on the marquee sets and this year's models. Your better going for the 2016 Hisense range if you want value for money.

Please, do not buy it directly from a store. Pay for it online, and pick up in a store. This way you can return it if unhappy without problems - believe me this is crap TV. Saying this, price is quite shocking (like a picture). Secondly you still can collect a voucher.

I don't see the point in buying a 4KTV yet for a number of reasons:

1. All TV providers like Sky/FreeviewHD are still all running 720p/1080i streams
2. There's not alot of content, only streaming services like Netflix/Amazon Prime
3. By the time 4K gets bigger, due to 4K Blu-rays releasing the technology will get better and cheaper.

But if u return it, surely u must also return the voucher if u get a refund? (_;)

I purchased the 43" and its an excellent TV for the money, image quality is excellent imo. My wife and I often comment on the quality of the picture on normal TV and with HD channels its excellent so maybe you see something I don't or there are different batches of screens.

I cant believe that you think the TV picture is shocking unless you had a broken TV. I have had many TV's over the years and currently have a Samsung and LG 32" Full HD in other rooms and the picture quality of the 43" Philips is definitely the best of all three whatever the input. I was worried when I purchased it due to other comments on here and I was looking for faults as I would have returned it if I found any but I cant fault the 43" version one bit.

But how much do they cost? If they are the same price then great but as with all technology it probably double the price and as I find the 43" picture on this excellent I would be amazed if HDR made that much of a difference. I've just looked up HDR is anyone is interested trustedreviews.com/opi…ned

Maybe I have different eyes to others but most days I look at my TV and think isn't that picture excellent :-) so I would suggest others try this for themselves and return if its not up to their quality before judging some of the views on here.

I bought this and love it, upscaling is fine and comes down to what's being upscaled... PS4 and XBOX One look amazing, 4k media player is blindingly good, normal tv (non hd) fine, hd brilliant. Picture is darker in Eco mode (no surprise there) switch to Movie mode for vivid pictures. Paid £379.99 for mine and not a regret so far. Also have a Samsung curved and UHD Sony so not a case of not knowing any better

What do you mean by not "real 4K" ? I thought all 4K TVs had the same resolution (which is significantly lower than 4K).

It doesn't matter how much you like it, you won't get your hands on one unless you buy one from Europe. I was on the phone only yesterday asking why you can't get their high-end TVs in this country. She said the only place that stocks them in UK is Euronics. Called Euronics and they said they know nothing about it X)

Just get this it's much better, no one watches TV any more through an ariel any ways.

It's a lot smaller, a lot more expensive and it does a lot less... what's your definition of "better" ?

Size isn't everything !
