Dont know if this is a good deal but 299 for a 55inch tv sounds good.

Use code get20 to get it for 279

get20 should take 20 quid off it too.

Seems the sound and standard definition let it down but I'd still give some heat thanks op.

That's smoking

I got the 4k version 49 inch for £315 a about 2 months ago. I think it's brilliant.

Size isn't everything......

Rather go for the 50" for an extra £100 for 4K ultra smart

Size is everything when in 4k. Can't see the difference 8.3 million pixels makes!

Different model

Ordered. Will give it a go. The sneaky pests said they where charging me £279 but then I noticed afterwards the invoice says £294 as it put a £15 charge on for delivery. I'm assuming this is an extra charge for delivery to Northern Ireland but it never mentioned it at all.

Amazingly cheap!

Buy cheap, buy twice !!

You get what you pay for. In this case muddy blacks, warm colour temp and over-saturated colours with irritatingly poor contrast.
Ideal for video adverts in shops, not so good as your main tv.
Of course, if it didn't have such drawbacks it would be a bargain, but as it does it's priced about right.
As for "smart" tv - a £30 phone would have more app availability. What OS is it running? Who provides the apps? Are you stuck with them and no further apps, for example when any of the free to air channels upgrade or change their code standards are you stuck with dead and unusable apps for the life of the tv? What hardware is powering it? Quad core android? WebOS?
If you want the bottom end of the smart TV market just buy a dongle such as a fire stick. Guarantee it will have multiple times the power of whatever this TV will laughingly call "smart".

Still, might do your great grandma, assuming she can't see, hear or want to use apps.

​You're right! So cheap I bought 2

" Dont know if this is a good deal but....

I think some of these 'cheaper' TVs are a false economy. So many of the branded sets (non-VESTEL/UMC) cost a little extra & typically with 5/6 year warranties.

I don't think I would ever buy a 55" as a 2nd TV that wasn't branded.

Well I went with a Samsung instead of a Vestel last year and the Sammy has already failed twice. Colours are good though

Actually that is the idea with LED buy cheap and make do until OLED drops in price. So thanks for the advice its perfect

I have a 40 inch Techwood, it has Netflix youtube and iplayer apps that work fine, only the Youtube one is 4K though.
I would say this is a good price but only if you need that size, alternatively get a better brand slightly smaller.
My main annoyance with it is having to change it to Game Mode to avoid the
'Soap opera effect'(google it)

I have the Techwood 55AO3TSB 55" Smart TV (not sure what the difference is from this model) and I'm very happy with it. Paid a similar price to this in the summer at AO.

​How is it on picture quality, had a tesco one b4 it was rubbish, the sharp in the place I live now is also rubbish, glad I took the Panasonic couple of years ago

Yep, had this last year when i ordered my tv

No 4K. £279 down the drain.

Nothing is broadcast in 4k. The only items is the new Xbox and PS4 pro uses 4k technology. So I've read best check out spec before buying tvs theses days see if you really need them.

Who doesn't put their TV on the wall? We're nearly in 2017! ;-)

this isn't 4k though..

Looks like this vestel series.

Guessing dual core logic board as the interpolation rate is only 600 but other vestel chassis with quad core logic boards can do up to 1200.

I question the need for 55" and 1080p though. Unless you really do have a large living room and people are seated some way back. 4k at 50" is similar money and such Vestel sets often have quad core logic boards and the ability to interpolate frames at twice the rate as well as many other benefits of increased cpu, gpu and memory performance on the logic board. This set seems designed to impress on size for little money and has a very compromised spec.
