I also need a gaming tv, been looking for a while
Techwood 48AO2USB 48" Smart 4K Ultra HD TV
I noticed in tv options drop down menu on same page the OP linked the 48" inch model 4k is £398 with a £75 cash back promo which would make it £323

Plus you can add "TENNEROFF" for £10 off.



When will these companies stop using such cryptic codes to stop us from guessing them

hot from me
Well I voted it hot I also went ahead and ordered the 48" 4K smart model listed at £398 but used the tenneroff promo code and when you deduct the £75 cashback discount on the model the site is offering which is payable within 21 days after delivery total cost for a 48* 4k smart tv £313. The tv is for my bedroom so not really wanting a high budget set I did plan to get 43" but at this price I was swayed. I'm not to fussed on the smart features the average cost added to models for smart embedded is £50 I know how over time that side of the tv becomes dated an really best way to keep a tv smart is to buy a separate box from the wealth of options out their I have an android box £30 4k quad core so my new tv will become more smarter then any embedded features it has.

Any idea whether it supports full chroma at 2160p60, and not just 4:0:0?
I have now ordered 3 of these to use as a surround gaming monitor setup, I bought the first one a few weeks ago to confirm what features it has and spec. HDMI ports are all 2.0 (meaning 4k at 60hz) with HDMI1 port being HDCP 2.2 compliant for 4k on amazon fire tv. The chroma I tested and you need to go into input settings and set the HDMI port to Enhanced to get the test Chroma image to show correctly, not sure if full 4:4:4 but certainly at least 4:2:2 as the chroma test image shows however isn't as clear as a standard monitor. Smart features are smooth thanks to the quad core processor and games in 4k look amazing on it with an 8ms pixel response and 36ms video input response. Also worth playing around with display presets to get a picture that you feel comfortable with. Hoping to get a total of 4 of these to end up with an 80 inch 8k video wall for under £1000. The 40 inch and 48 inch seem pretty similar with the 55 inch one having a passive 3d panel (guessing they might be using LG passive tech or panels). Any other questions please ask but defo a good buy

Fantastic Review, many thanks. Just curious what graphics display are you using for this?

Your 80inch display under £1000 does not factor in the cost of the graphics card.

Do you reckon my AMD Radeon HD 7870 Dual-X 2GB GDDR5 Graphics Card (HDMI, DVI-I, DVI-D, Display Port, PCI Express 3.0, 256-Bit, AMD Avivo HD) would be able to handle this.
Probably not more than 1 or at most 2, I used to use 2x AMD R9 270 in crossfire and it would only handle 3 1080p monitors, now using a Nvidia GTX 980 OC which until my other 2 monitors arrive currently handles 2x 1080p monitors, the 4k tv and an ultrawidescreen (2560x1080) at once. I do alot of game streaming and online video production.

For the video wall I'm using a Lindy 4k video wall processor which I managed to get cheap on amazon but yeah I might have to add a second 980 at some point but defo alot cheaper than existing 8k solutions and the bezel is pretty small so hopefully will look good
You can use code JANUARY20 to get £20 off the 48 inch version

Thanks for the review!
Very tempted, what is the motion blur like, and how good are the blacks?
I don't know if I should go for this in 48 inch or the Hisense 55 inch..

You will be limited to 30hz/30fps via the HDMI socket as the 7870 doesn't support HDMI 2.0.
However Club 3D recently released this Displayport adapter which might be worth a look:
novatech.co.uk/pro…tml

Seems reasonably priced at £14.99 and should allow you to run at 60Hz which will be much nicer for desktop use and browsing. The 7870 doesn't really have enough power for 4K gaming but you could switch back to 1080p or possibly 1440p if the TV supports that resolution. ImJessicat may be able to test that for you

You will probably find that adaptor is HDMI 1.4 (only 30Hz) as most are around this price point, only 60hz one ive found so far is amazon.co.uk/dp/…me=

Also wouldn't recommend running this at 1440p as it won't look great with not being the panels native resolution

The Club 3D adaptor is definitely HDMI 2.0 and was designed as a cost effective solution to this issue.
I sometimes use my 50" 4K screen at 1440p and it's surprisingly good (Panasonic CX700 / GTX 980Ti)

Does the techwood logo light up? (the triangle at the bottom) If so, can you turn it off in the settings? Thanks
What is this like for desktop resolution at 4k? I'm using an amd r9 270 which supports the resolution. Just wondering how much screen estate you get compared to a 21" 1080p monitor and what font/icon sizing is like in comparison?

Hi
I bought this deal, but AO are refusing to honour the £30 cashback and say there is only £20 cashback (as is the case now). Normally I take a screenshot when ordering to avoid exactly this problem, but I didn't have time.
I don't suppose anybody took a screenshot of the £30 cashback??
Thanks
Jon
Can't see any cash back link
£225 on eBay store
I know this is an old deal, but was the final price £208 after cash back and discounts?

So appreciative of your reply... I read other reviews (some on this site) saying this TV didn't support hdcp 2.2. I bought anyway but for the bedroom, and didn't even try to plug in one of my 4k Amazon fire TV's, but now I have, and now I have 4k!

Cheers!
Set one of these up for a mate. Run for a few days. Now it switches off when connecting HDMI. runs ok on Digital aerial. Any ideas anyone?

Hello,

Are you using an nvidia or amd card to get 4k60 on this tv? I have an nvidia card gtx670 (I tried with and without sli) and am using a DP 1.2 to hdmi 2.0 cable (the club 3d one) and i cannot get it to work in 4k60. I have set enchanced mode etc. tried all ports. Any ideas?

Thanks
anyone else find the motion blur/ smoothing off-putting on TV and DVD?
We are running two of the 40inch techwood panels. They are exceptionally good value. 4K picture quality is outstanding at this price. 1 is used for gaming and is very good.. a v small amount of motion blur but pretty fast all things considered. Other has a Pi3 strapped to the back and makes a great media/ internet browser and much smarter than the inbuilt Smartness. Netflix is built in including on the remote and works well even with 4k content over wifi. Sure it isn't quite in the same league as our main Sony 65 inch 4K ....but has similar numbers of USB/HDMI connectors and decent picture quality.. what more could you ask for at this price ?
Mine is faulty now bought on february 2016. Backligt problems in settings from 0 to 10 going up and from 11 to 100 nothing change. Now picture is so dark.
AO took TV and refund me.
Has anyone been able to connect a Bluetooth headset to this TV? It has Bluetooth but cannot connect headset?
