I know people will **** AO off but ive not had a problem with them & this is a lot of TV for £279!

Have some heat

what's the issue with AO? Used them a few times and never had an issue, always recommend them. Not heard anything bad

Thanks OP

idiotically low price for a large screen TV, have some heaty heat heat!

nice price for a large tv - ive had 8 deliveries from AO and all ok no problems at all.

No All4, Demand 5, ITV Hub or Now TV Still, Chromecasts are cheap!

Great tv

No reviews on independent websites from what i can see. Anyone got one and can comment on screen quality for movies and games? Was looking for a Hisense deal but tempted by this

First, is Techwood. I'm not even looking at anything other than Samsung or LG these days.
Second, is 55". TVs of today should be 65".
Third, is not 4K. Why bother buying a 2-generations old TV?
Fourth, is not 3D. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I love my 3D movies.

So NO.

​But the point is it's £279.. Of course a 65 inch samsung 4k 3d tv is going to blow this away but it also isn't going to be anywhere close to £279.. So irrelevant. This is good tv for the price

​agreed

what a deal - a tv is a tv at the end of the day

great price have some heat

I got this TV last week at this price from AO and love it, no problems at all and it all boils down to the fact that it's a 55" TV for £279! Bargain!

Yeah, because lets just say you are a woman and I call you one... wouldn't be nice would it?

Yeah don't buy a TV for its 'smartness'. Very few manufacturers keep up with API updates from app owners so within a few years your smart TV becomes a proper dumb TV. Pick up a cheap Chromecast, FireStick or one of those cheapo Android boxes doing the rounds on here (though no Netflix HD on any of those) and you'll have much better support for a few more years. Once they stop being supported, just pick up a newer box for another 30 quid.

AO refund me on 4 months old faulty Techwood TV.

Samsung stopped making 3D last year... Sure you can get a few made last year that are still kicking around but why bother with a 2 generation old TV?

​But it has multiple meanings. Oh well

U would need to sit about 7m away from 65 inch tv, plus how many channels broadcasting in 4k(or even full hd) and how u know if samsung is not made by techwood?

If only I had my mancave built, I might have grabbed this, no interest in 3D nor 4K at the mo, if a 4K Coke around cheap enough with no issues then I might bite and stick my Sony 55w829 in the cave until then I'll keep an eye out for a cheapo like this once it's built! Heat

Last year? That would be 1 generation old TV.
And yes, they were doing active 3D (the expensive one, where the goggles go over £100) while LG are still now doing the inexpensive 3D (the one that works with the goggles you get in the cinema). So you're right, either a 65" 3D Samsung/LG from last year or a 65" LG from this year will do nicely. Much more nicely that this rubbish.

Not everyone wants or needs a Samsung/LG 65" 4K 3D TV - 55" is plenty big enough for my room, hardly any programmes are in 4K anyway and 3D is dying a death.

So YES

Yeah a Samsung or LG 65 incher would cost well above 1000 quid. I suspect there are at least a few people reading these forums who like the idea of a large screen TV but cannot spare that kind of money for the privilege.

It would be nice if all of us could drive Ferraris or Teslas, but most make do with Fords or Vauxhalls BECAUSE THEY GET YOU FROM POINT A TO POINT B.

But one does come across the odd comment on the internet that a Ferrari drives far nicer than a Vauxhall.

​I have exactly the TV you describe, and you're spot on, it is better. Was £1,799 (discounted) sadly.

Why does 4K TV matter most people don't have access to any 4K source material to make use of it, Thats like buying a top of the range Blue Ray player and only playing CD's on it.

Totally agree not every room has space even for a 55', I know when I was growing up most bedrooms that had TV's (which was rich people only) they were 14' and in living room if you had bigger than a 26' you were rich. Not everyone needs or wants TV's that big.

Cold for me. It was £269 without code before 1 week ago. Bought and later cancelled. No WIFI. Waiting 65 inch model to go down.

The 'issue' with AO is the possible 50% restocking fee. I've had no issues with them though it's a ridiculous policy IMO.

You sure you bought or got the same TV?

Clearly mentions built in wifi in the spec on the website

Got this exact telly last week off AO eBay and it does definitely have WiFi capability. Seems a decent telly if not spectacular. But its £279 so don't expect a Samsung. ;-)

Edit....the legs are 100cm apart so bear that in mind before purchasing. Big table or telly stand required!

Next they'll be paying you to watch t.v. Imagine that!

How does this work? At the end of the rental period do you actually own it?

Surely it's a much better idea to buy a higher spec TV second hand? You'd get so much more for exactly the same money.

Yes, the same model.

AO website clearly says NO WIFI

Wireless Connectivity
Google Cast No
Intel WiDi Yes
Miracast Yes
Multiroom Compatible No
NFC (Near Field Communication) No
WiFi No
WiFi Direct Yes

Hope this helps. Not sure the difference between WIFI and WIFI direct??

So what would you recommend for a grown up with an SD TV feed wanting a budget TV for a smaller room?

It does have wifi I have the tv

I would like a sound bar but have no idea where to start (_;)

Don't be ridiculous. Is the reason you demand a bigger TV than everyone else the same reason why certain blokes drive unnecessarily big cars ? X)
