People going about that their 6 year old tv has a better picture then this.......
Or the software is rubbish.

Put this TV on Netflix dolby vision 4k and it will blast any older led TV that doesn't have dolby vision. Absolute nonsense.

Software isn't bad. Yes there is better, but it's certianly good enough. Plus more than fine for the generic user.

For 500 quid... This is probably the best TV you can get by far.
Bang this with the Philips hue at night on dolby vision stranger things and tell me this is rubbish. That this isn't worth 500 quid.


From a owner of LG oled, previous samsung qled and a current owner of a philips 4k full hue setup.... This is a great deal and a great TV.

Heat.

Not worth it at this price. You pay for 250£ screen quality and sound …Not worth it at this price. You pay for 250£ screen quality and sound and...250£ for ambilight. And the software (smart functions) are the worst on the market - super slow and glitchy. I own this TV and it's really bad for it's price. Better to just buy one of the 55" Hisense/toshiba to get the same screen and proper soundbar/speakers or the 55" samsung for 370.


This is a joke right?

I have this TV and its pretty damn brilliant! Fast, slick and trouble free - the android system works a treat.

Suggesting it compares with a Toshiba is pretty ludicrous I have to be honest.

Being able it compare with the Hisense it replaced, this is leaps and bounds better in every single way - and the Hisense was a pretty good TV in its own right.

Having experienced Ambilight, I would find it really difficult going back to a TV without it - it's really odd when you turn it off.

For the record, I did my research and the presence of of both Dolby Vision and HDR10+ were big ticks, as we watch both Prime and Netflix a lot.

Thnx I was looking to grab one of this...

Whilst I agree that the TV isn't great. There's absolutely no issues with the software. I got one last week and the software response time is very quick and not glitchy at all. I've decided to return it simply because the picture quality isn't the best.

Who do I believe now then? :/ is it good quality or not?
Hi, thats strange looking at videos Andriod seems to run well also T3
T3 Awards 2019: the finest TV you can buy for under £1000 is Philips 7334A great blend of style, image quality and Philips Hue-style back-lighting

Who do I believe now then? :/ is it good quality or not?

It really just depends on your expectations and what you want from a TV. The picture quality on my 6 year old Samsung led TV is better than this (but that was a top of the range where as this TV is a mid range). The features on this TV are great and the Ambilight function is even better but picture quality means the most to me, which is why I'm returning it. If you do get it, make sure you update the software right away and you'll have no issues with it.
My last smart tele had a Now TV app, this one doesn't so had to buy a Now TV stick 😡
Which is the better deal & better tv in your opinion ?

hotukdeals.com/dea…297

I guess you will be able to get this below 430 with Black Friday sales so comparing the price at 430-450.

I do have the hue bridge & lights in living room so would go nicely with Amazing Ambilight for movies.

I guess the LG will have better quality colours & sharpness for movies

Are you sure the U8B can be had for £500?
This TV is more controversial than Brexit itself! I've never seen such conflicting reviews on one item like this TV has! Some are very happy with it and cannot recommend it enough, and some describe it as not worth it even at such moderate price tag. I guess one will have to do personal judgement on this one.

The useful comments are those who say, don't buy this one, instead this one is better at the SAME PRICE TAG, like the Hisense-U8B if it can be bought at that price).
The not so useful ones, states how terrible this one is, picture is unbearable, sound is unhearable, go for the Samsung Q70 for only double the price!

How about the people overreacting and blowing everything out of porportions? All negative reviews up to this comment have arguments and give reasons why this TV is bad at this price. On the other hand, you are just dissapointed that your deal is being slashed. Sorry but you have to learn to leave with some negative internet points. As I said, I own the TV and the smart functions become borderline unusable after a few months and the sound is terrible. Another user said the picture quality is worse than his 6 years old tv. If you want people to like what you post, give your arguments why is it good instead of crying. Nobody compared this to twice more expensive TVs - read carefully - it was compared to twice LESS expensive ones.

I honestly think that it's due to two types of people trying this TV. You have people that are not too technical, not fussed over every single detail and just admire the TV for what it is, that like it. Then you have the technophobes where every detail matters and they're used to owning mid/top TVs prior to purchasing this one, that don't like it. You just have to filter which type of person is writing the review to determine if its for you or not.

Yes, I totally agree with your analysis, I just hope that its actually a decent one, perhaps not to the top notch strandard that comes with its price, but to a point where the flaws won't take out the pleasure of the experience. At this stage, its really not easy to reach a conclusion purely through reviews, so I guess I will have to check it myself and return it if I cannot enjoy it.
Out of interest for those of you that buy TV's and then check them by playing content, are you able to return your TV sets. I've had a read of the Curry's and AO.com return policies, and they state that whilst customers are able to open and inspect the product, once they use them they are not eligible for a 100% refund, and they charge a restocking fee. Is this correct?

Has been a while since I bought my last TV, so don't want to order a TV and then not be able to return it, if the picture quality is not great.

I think you took my comment in a negative way to what I intended, its really not about my deal, the conflicting comments I meant are the sum of all comments on this forum and others related to this model, you are more than welcome and in fact thanked for providing your expereince and opinion which contributes to decision makings. I think its like gsj87 said about the comments made by different people with different focus.
On the side note, it might be more useful to state the comments in a slightly less personalised way, using words like crying or blowing out of proportion might add a personal direction to a technical discussion which I'm sure was not your intention, I was considering buying this TV myself mutiple times but hesitated just as much due to different conflicting reviews in forums and YouTube, which is what I meant in my comment.

Why would you downgrade from LG Oled & Samsung Qled to this ., nothing wrong with this tv but those two way superior
I have been doing some research research and it seems like a great screen for the money but I am going to hold fire until BF in a couple of weeks to see if it drops closer to the £400 mark

Samsung had a fault in the end. So I got the oled LG for the living room which I much prefer. Then I got the 75 inch Philips for the kitchen dinner, which is the social entertainment room. That has the full hue setup which I really love. Two very different tvs for two very different needs.

29th I think but might be wrong :/
Had my Phillips ambilight for just over 3 years and it looks as though the screen has packed up.
Any suggestions for a cheap TV with similar specs?
Can anyone who bought this please test the input lag and let me know if it's OK for gaming? I'm sold but need to make sure the input lag isn't too bad in game mode.
