I could not be any closer than that, I am very poor and no funny at all. So, any idea about the chroma on this tv please/

Mine is down for delivery tomorrow so lets see..

Thanks mate. I had no idea what the hell 4-4-4 chroma was, but decided to google it after you mentioned. And then i realised my pc monitor was actually set on 4-2-2 and that was why all my text was showing up blocky and yellowy on web pages.

you inadvertently help sort out an infuriating problem that i've had since i updated my graphics.

regarding your question, didn't find an answer. but you can ask buyers here.

Well,what can i say.... Tv arrived as promised, first thing i noticed when removing it from the box was the weight, quite heavy for a budget TV .. nice.. Fitted the feet and switched it on. The remote and menus respond very fast, setup is easy and it found my WiFi quickly too.

The screen picture is very good and the colours very vibrant.The sound quality is 10 times better than any other "thin" tv i have viewed and listened to.
Next I connected to Youtube to view some 4k content...... Wow ! just wow.. i was blown away, the resolution is simply stunning. there are 4 Hdmi's and 3 Usb's, along with Vga,and audio video jacks. So overall i am convinced this was a great purchase.

It is also HDMI 2.0 as far as I remember and the ports appear to be USB 3.0.

Do you know what the input lag is in ms when connecting to a PC? Thank you.

How far away from the screen were you when viewing the 4k material? Thanks.

Thanks brilliant

Anyone know if it will do 60Hz when connected to a PC through HDMI?

Had mine delivered on Saturday. Very impressed with it.

It is HDMI 2.0 compliant so does 60Hz via HDMI if you have compatible hardware

How will this perform as a Computer Monitor?

Techwood decent brand, a lot better than finlux

Probably need some extra sound for any TV so thin and ok for a computer monitor

What are the speakers like on this? Bought a budget TV before only to find it gets a bit raspy with certain frequencies, think it was something akin to a Finlux.

I got one of these 6 weeks ago, I can tell you that it is a very good TV. I returned a £450 TV because this one was better.

If you want a TV on a budget, get this. oh the netflix and YouTube apps work better an any other TV I have used.

Stupid question but I'm guessing this is at least Hdcp 2.2 or whatever it is for fire tv 4K boxes to work?? Great deal

Hi,can anyone say if the inbuilt Netflix app can stream 4k/UHD streams or not?,looking at using in my kitchen and would prefer to avoid any extra wires if possible,thanks for any replies or advice.Looking at the AO website they claim this is made in the same factory as Panasonic Tv sets.

This is the same Vestel set rebranded for Hitachi, Panasonic, Techwood, Toshiba, Bush etc. Good TV for the price.

The only problem I'm having with mine is the Freeview HD sound is out of sync with the picture, BBC 1,2,ITV and channel 4 are the worst affected. I don't watch it that often as use Sky but it's annoying that it does this. All other inputs are fine just Freeview HD, can you have a look at yours and see if it is the same please.

seems like a good offer, and reviews all over said this is a quite good tv for the money..

Mine arrived today , I'm using it as a PC monitor for my 2012 Mac mini with HDMI. It works perfectly as a monitor , far better then my 10 year old LCD Toshiba it replaced.

Sound is sharp and clear but not much on the side of bass at the side of the Toshiba.

The stands on the new tv's I found are useless in some applications. The new tv would not sit on the desk like the old one would due to the each end pegs. I had to then buy an aftermarket stand to get it back to where I was.

£225 it's a steal to be fair

Does this have the Amazon Instant Video app? Very tempted by this, but don't want to have to buy a fire stick to access Amazon.

No it doesn't unfortunately. Not yet anyway, not sure if it will be added at a later date.

Different Techwood TV but the review states of the Smart TV

"Clearly there are some pretty big hitters missing off this list – the ITV Player, 4oD, Demand 5 and Amazon Instant, in particular."

Any idea if you can sideload apps onto the them?
