Seems like a good deal if you're looking for a mid range panel with decent refresh rate, Freeview HD, 3 HDMIs, 2 USB ports, optical output etc. No reviews for this particular model but the 200Hz AMR has been rated highly on other models that carry it.

At this size and spec, it's more likely to have a Toshiba panel and assembled in Taiwan rather than a Vestel rebadge...

£499.99 in Argos and around £450 on Amazon.The seller (Crampton &Moore) appears to have good reviews too..

Edit-£499 at Tesco Direct too (thanks Hairyboxxox)

And you want all that for under 400 notes?? Now go away and find me another TV with similar specs for under £400..

As for 'old model', 200Hz AMR was only introduced in September 2013

You obviously haven't been looking hard enough. .Specs from the Toshiba website..

toshiba.eu/tel…db/

I wouldn't call toshibas own website "independent".

Tesco are selling this at £499 Tesco Toshiba Crampton & Moore are a long established business. I can't comment on the television performance itself but the price is good for someone who wants this size and spec and perhaps isn't as pedantic on picture quality.

Is this a pretend Toshiba made by Vestel?

When I first saw the picture I thought it was an ugly green purse/handbag

From what I gather, Vestel mostly do 42" and under with standard 50hz displays. This would most probably have been assembled somewhere in Asia or Eastern Europe (many of the Pannys sold in the UK are assembled in the Czech Republic) but is likely to have a genuine Toshiba panel and parts due to the size and spec..

If you can afford 3D channels, you can most likely can afford a £800+ 3D TV with all your fancy wishes.



I was about to suggest that.Or better still, pick up a quad core Android TV dongle for under £30 from Ali express and stick XBMC on it!!

This is only a 50Hz panel as confirmed on the Toshiba site.

Well, many of the 200/400/600 hz displays are. What these TV do is increase the refresh rates through back light scanning or inserting additional frames to reduce motion blur, judder and other display artifacts associated with LCD displays (which is where the 200hz AMR comes in)

The following link provides a conversion chart of sorts for refresh rates..

I'm not here to search for alternatives. I'm giving my opinion based on the information I have or know on the hotukdeal.

IMO, it is ugly, it doesn't have 3d, it doesn't have wifi, it doesn't have an ethernet slot.

Also, it only has 1 year warranty, it's specification is in much doubt and although the retailer has a quality and reputable history, I find no independent reviews on the product (which would be a concern on purchasing this TV).

I very much doubt, the build is by Toshiba as the 200hz AMR doesn't fit into the 2013 official builds nor the 2014 model's.

Why on earth would you want the last 3?

Almost no one likes 3D and while WiFi and Smart Functions are great in theory, but every manufacturer's options are terrible and your'e better off using an external box like Roku, AppleTV or WDLive.

Very odd sized screen, as in I've never heard of a 48" screen and I have worked in the TV panels sales industry for over 1.5 years.

Tge look of the TV is important to me. especially as this is a living room (size) TV. I'm not a snob to brands, however I want it too look presentable in my home.

Your not serious, that no one likes 3d?

I'd prefer a wifi or ethernet capable TV. I stream and use on demand daily. I could buy another product and connect it through one of the HDMI ports. But I'm commenting on it's merits and price.

I was concerned based on the points already given if this was a hot deal. I think it's a fair price and thus I will now vote cold.

Not liking it for its looks is fine - personally, I think it's inoffensive but to each their own.

If you like 3D, you're in the minority. TV manufacturers added it as a gimmick because they needed something for people to replace old sets. Even when people buy 3D TVs they rarely use it, which is why the BBC shut down their 3D broadcasts due to lack of demand. John Lewis were saying last year that there wasn't much interest left.

I bought into the hype and spent around £900 on a 3D set 2 years ago . Although I have no complaints since it was a good price for even a non 3d high end 55" at the time, I have watched a grand total of 3 3D movies on it since. I get a headache every time I watch it for over 20-30 mins despite the passive 3D (in fact the TV displays a warning about extended viewing every time you switch on 3D-1 would imagine active 3d is worse)

Also, there is little 3D content worth watching on any of the major platforms and those available through streaming services are poor quality/full of cross talk..

can i ask people who have this tv, is it a 100hz or 50hz tv? i dont think its 200hz but rather 200 AMR+, so im confused as to which one it is. toshiba's site only lists the 1433 model which is 50hz and not the 1435

This model is in tesco stores for 399 and a five year guarantee. What a bargain!
