49" UHD not smart but seems a good price. Says its 400hz but I would like to know if it's 4K at 60hz? The 400hz must be for 1080p

Awful TV. Tried 2 43in ones which both had vertical ghost lines, swapped again but then went for this 49in one which was awful! Had more ghosting and all the edges and left side of the screen were covered in pressure marks that are very noticeable when the screen is dark and constantly notable when watching movies. Before I took it back I tested how much pressure would make a mark and it was basically the slightest touch would leave a mark you can not get rid of. Also the TV doesn't do blacks... All blacks are grey, you have to mess about way too much with the picture settings and I could never get one that looked good. I really don't understand how anyone can this this is a good TV because they are pure garbage
Here is a picture of the left side showing the marks which are worse than they look.

Either you've been very unlucky or these aren't much good

These are terrible hence price

Rubbish tv, had this exact model and it started developing dead pixels after two weeks, emded up getting a samsung 48 inch 4k for the same price which has been amazing. Avoid!

It was a amazon warehouse deal, gone now unfortunalty

Had issues with a couple of Philips tvs recently, the brand just isn't what it used to be.

My son is very happy with his 43 inch version and in the limited time I've experienced it I have to say it seems absolutely fine? Are we easily pleased?

I purchased one of these before, first one turned up broken and the second one had awful ghosting issues. Very poor quality, you'd be better off with some of the 48in 1080p TVs going for 200 quid right now.

4K is still emerging, buying a cheap 4K tv right now is asking for trouble.

It's called light bleed, it's when the backlight of the panel leaks around the edge of the LCD. Almost all screens have it to some degree, although generally it's something that is more prominent in tablets and laptops as the size makes the manufacturing a lot harder than a TV. Typically though it looks much worse in pictures, so you must also have a terrible camera.

No this is not light bleed.... Like I said this was a permanent mark not just in corners. And like I said it looks much worse than it does in that picture so no I don't have a terrible camera....

Philips used to be a good brand, same with Panasonic. What a waste.

I've been scouring the planet for a reasonable 4K TV, my research seems to suggest that this gen of 4K TV are largely pointless, only really Netflix and Amazon Prime (or if you have BT for sport) for UHD content, not many people pay for both, I pay for AP, not many TVs include the Amazon app built in, which means I'd need a box as opposed to my stick.

BBC unlikely to invest in 4K in foreseeable due to funding, which means the rest of terrestrial won't bother either.

Sky launching that 4K service, likely to be for movies and sports, which is great but with Virgin refusing to care about it, how likely are they to be competitive in pricing?

Then you've got the Ultra HD Premium certification that came into play this year for HDR TV, none of this gen TV have, despite Hisense saying they have HDR they don't meet the requirements set out by UHD Alliance.

I think I'll just stick with my Sony Bravia 40 inch that is 1080p, 5 years old, but with terrible blacks and bulky as sin for now. Wait another year or so to see where content on 4K is.

The 43" version was awful. Went back, don't see why this should be any different

Cold as they have terrible picture, get a Hisense M3xxx series TV if your after cheap 4k sets as the picture is so much better.

thanks op, decent price
