Decent price for a tv that’s just been released! I don’t have this version, I have 2 versions below this one and it’s a really good tv! Really worth the price. Tempted to purchase this one but seeing as no reviews have come in yet I might just wait a little longer!

What 4k 50inch TV would you be looking at in this price range? Say £50+/-



I already said, 4k TV in this price range is completely pointless, unless all you do is watch 4k stills or just want to tell everyone you have a 4k TV.

I won't even go into the debate that 50" isn't really large enough to get a great deal of benefit from 4k anyway

much better off going for a full hd with half decent motion processing, most content is in HD or lower

just picking one at random here.

that TV will destroy this tv in HD content, SD content and motion processing, watching sports, and action films etc.


If you really must have 4k on a budget, look on Avforums, there is always someone who wants to upgrade to a slightly bigger better TV and most of the time they take great care in their belongings and lots come with transferable warranties.

This recently sold for £400, and is far far superior than this TV in every way

HDR..... lolz ... let's not even go there with this

Better off with a Full HD instead, where the extra money was spent on motion processing and not 4k and HDR, it's like pouring perfume on a pig.

Techwood................................... why do people buy this rubbish?

Not seen this TV in action, but can already tell you that it may look ok on still images, but dreadful when anything is moving...

Reason is that TVs this cheap will either have no motion processing (preferable at this price range) or some budget processing

TV or glorified 4k photo frame?..... you decide.

Don't need to try it.... it's not really my opinion it's more of a fact

This TV has no motion processing, so it runs at 50/60hz (Hisense uses motion processing in most of it's TV's)

This is ok for slow movement, but will look awful for or action films, gaming and sport,.except maybe cricket.

Same happens when If i turn the motion processing off on my OLED, so i can only dread what it looks like on this

4k with motion blur may as well be 420p

Just a heads up for anyone thinking of buying this.

No it isn't...... ths is the point.

The benefit of a 4k tv over a HD one is a sharper picture, more detail etc... 4k TV with no motion processing is a big mess on movement, so you have a 4k blur not a clear picture. so whats the point? You're only getting 4k on stills or very slow motion.

Furthermore, a 4k TV is generally worse than a HD tv for displaying HD content, due to it's native resolution, and most stuff you watch will be HD. So this TV has to scale HD content to it's 4k native resolution, and a 350 quid TV will have a rubbish scaler.

This TV is 350 quid for a reason,

But hey, go buy this so you can tell everyone you have a 4k hdr tv., as thats all its good for.

Game Mode does come with a cost, otherwise the mode wouldn't be there at all, some people want faster response times over image quality - presumably thinking that these milliseconds are vital, even though human response (particularly mine) makes this mostly redundant and more of a placebo effect imo

However not ALL Tv's disable all the motion processing on 'Game Mode', most disable post processing of the image to help reduce input lag. Such as colour processing, noise reduction, advanced scaling etc

The HDR mode on this will be so dim I would say don't ever play HDR content on it. The main issue with these is always the backlight on these cheaper 4k sets is so patchy so you see splodges all over the place when you watch the footy.

Funnily enough, I've just swapped my 43 inch techwood for a hisense, and the picture quality on the techwood is far better than the hisense.

Full disclosure: I've not fully played with the hisense picture settings, and the techwood had blotches on the screen, as someone has mentioned.

Apologies if my wording sounded a little brusque, I was just reiterating the fact that i wouldn't recommend a 4k TV at this price range.

Unless
it was a slightly more expensive (and worthy) 4KTV reduced to a bargain price., well that would be different and then perhaps be a good deal and completely different to people just voting this hot because it 'appears' to be a good deal, due to it having 4k and HDR for £350

This TV is priced accordingly, and imo really not a deal at all. The price is about par for what you get here regardless of how good anyone says it is in their opinion.

I needed a cheap TV and your "go for HD at this price range" rang true. In the end i picked up a Panasonic TX-49ES400B (is a true panny and not a Vestal jobbie) as even though it is only HD i thought it would be better than a cheap 4K TV.

Why would running 24-60 fps video at 4k cause motion blur at 50-60hz refresh rate without motion processing?

Edit: some interesting info on this here: cnet.com/new…es/

Basically, it depends on the viewer, and methods employed to reduce perceived motion blur.

There are methods to reduce motion blur that only work woth 120hz panels, and some 'solutions' are more annoying to some viewers than no solution at all.

Panasonic TX-49ES400B was from Argos. I collected it same day ( and unlike the cheaper Panasonic 49 inch TV Argos sells it is a real Panny and not a Turkish Vestel one). It looked good to me and a solid TV with good features also it has some kind of motion system so I guess it would be good for gaming.

So one like the Toshiba reduced for a couple hours yesterday then bounced back up to £449..

I've ordered it at £352 because hey.. hdr10 dolby screams yaldi to me and Costco also had a smaller version on sale.. general way of online purchase is if Costco, Richer Sounds and/or John Lewis stock them, they're at least reasonable at what they do.

If it sucks then it replaces the tiddler in the room since it's rank, and I stick with the Sammy 400hz HD telly in the living room.. well, 200hz in real life figures..

You don't gotta reply.. I'm just being one of those "whoops I bought a random telly" folks

From the reviews alone it seems alright.. but if you want a decent 4k experience hold out for a bigger screen I'd say.. depends how big you want it mind you.

One of the reviews mentions ps4 being good and it does the HDR easy, and another mentions there's no motion blur like other cheaper models.. so I'd say grab it if you really need one pronto, or wait it out a wee while until something bigger comes along.. I only just ordered a 55" from eBay AO off this yesterday for £352..

To see the difference of 4K, you need to be sat close to a small/medium TV, or have a massive TV:

35117323-AAuwY.jpg

In a typical/average lounge, one would only just be able to see the difference between 720p and 1080p with a 42" display. In the graph above you'll see you'd have to be sat 6' or closer to a 42" display to see the difference between 1080p and 4k.

That's what's Jace is on about.

I disagree with the need for motion processing though. I tend to put my displays in Expert mode and disable all processing, and sync the refresh rate to the source, but I don't use the TV tuner and leave all the video processing to my HTPC (even for TV), so it might just be source-device-dependent.

All the motion processing I have seen looks artificial and not like frame-synced playback, and I used to do hardware reviews and go to CES (where all the latest and future TVs, monitors, and other display technology are showcased).

All said, I'd be pretty dubious of a minor brand, cheap 4k display and definitely check out customer and professional reviews/tests first.

Where on earth did I say there was no difference? and there was no point?

All i was suggesting was that you benefit more from 4k sources in proportion to your TV size, and your viewing distance.

There are some published viewing distances that appear on here frequently, and they apply to people with 20/20 vision, so if your vision isn't 20/20 then you will get even less benefit.

You then need to work out how much 4k material you will actually be watching, because a HD TV will always be better at displaying HD than a 4k TV.

Ah, here is the graph i mentioned, we must have posted at the time time.

Regarding your comment on your expert settings, and synchronizing the frames to the source doesn't help at all with LCD or OLED that use 'Sample and Hold'. You will always get motion blur, doubling the frames can help a lot with that.

Also, panel response times are important.

Tests like these are a good indication on how well your TV can handle motion.

If you have Youtube on your TV, give it a try, otherwise you should be able to find something you can burn to a dvd or copy to USB to try it out





Hereis one for 60fps

Nice tests, I also tried out the RTINGS test:



In all tests, my old LG 42LB630V performs admirably, noticeably better than my mid 2015 MacBook Pro... but then again, maybe my 39 year old eyes have lost the twitch response and tracking of my 24 year old UT2k4 European league gamer eyes!!

I dunno, motion compensation to me looks doctored and artificial, not because it's too smooth or too realistic, but because the motion speed and direction seems to wander all over the place.

To each their own though I guess, bit of a Marmite situation

I already said, 4k TV in this price range is completely pointless, unless …I already said, 4k TV in this price range is completely pointless, unless all you do is watch 4k stills or just want to tell everyone you have a 4k TV. I won't even go into the debate that 50" isn't really large enough to get a great deal of benefit from 4k anywaymuch better off going for a full hd with half decent motion processing, most content is in HD or lowerjust picking one at random here.https://cpc.farnell.com/samsung/ue49m5520akxxu/49-full-hd-1080p-smart-led-tv/dp/AV27288?mckv=sjfArjr8m_dc|pcrid|224689185316|kword||match||plid||slid||product|AV27288|pgrid|48694575284|ptaid|pla-440750889101|&CMP=KNC-GUK-CPC-SHOPPING&gclid=CjwKCAjw2rjcBRBuEiwAheKeL7hlwDLShQLffCkelxuFThYWzh9rG9eGKad1cCqCiQexeARKqeOkhBoCz9wQAvD_BwEthat TV will destroy this tv in HD content, SD content and motion processing, watching sports, and action films etc.If you really must have 4k on a budget, look on Avforums, there is always someone who wants to upgrade to a slightly bigger better TV and most of the time they take great care in their belongings and lots come with transferable warranties.This recently sold for £400, and is far far superior than this TV in every wayhttps://www.avforums.com/threads/panasonic-tx-55cx802b.2184416/Anyways, i;m finished here.. didn't want a full on debate really. I cringe when i see these TV's


I just joined to say it's Nice to see people like Jace sharing sharing their opinion and backing it up with valid clear evidence for the benefit of others.
You have no idea how many people look on these sites and have no idea if it's good or not but they think they're getting a better deal.
World needs more people like Jace.

Joined, posted a compliment and never seen again?
Coincidence maybe.
