This is a far superior TV, and £50 cheaper;

If it doesn't get cancelled
I'd rather have the 5 year warranty than b grade. Atleast i will get 5 years use for the ed extra £50 cost. Both are decent as backup tvs or for the bedroom .

One thing you should understand about Hotukdealer's is that they're far more concerned in a 5 years guarantee with John Lewis than potentially a better and cheaper tv elsewhere.

Ain't you one of them people. Judging by comments on the Panasonic tv

Except the Panasonic was more hassle then it was worth. Refurb tv with 1 year guarantee and to also return to repair centre at your own cost. I'm all for bargains and value for money but long term that ran a greater risk.
Lots of negative comments about this being made by Vestel, but it has very good reviews from the people that have actually bought it.

I’m tempted to replace our 8 year old 32” Panny. It may not match some of the latest TVs, but for £350 it should be a massive improvement and step up for me.

Anyone have this TV and can comment?
Good TV for this price range, heat added.

What's better about it?
Plus for an extra £25 you can up grade the 5 Year Guarantee to include accidental damage cover
Excellent price for a TV that comes with a five year guarantee. If the 49” model is too large for your room, John Lewis also have the 43” model for £299.

That's because some folks can't afford to throw away their TV after 2 years if they've been unlucky. For some, £349 is pocket change. Not so for some others. Horses for courses.
I think of all the manufacturers that offer guarantees, of cars and mileage, a car bounces around out in all weathers and comes with a mileage warranty, is multiple times larger, more materials etc is as technologically advanced as any TV.
A TV stands in its own garage protected from the elements and only flashes its lights and sounds its horn. You'd think manufacturers would have more confidence in their own products, the production techniques and materials they employ, but the government allows them to look at us and spit "i'll give you a year. Scum".
I bought this from JL a couple weeks ago when it was 379 and tested for 1 hour and returned it the following day. It is a fake 4K and the colours are awful. Wifi is slow compared to 2 years old LG. The smart functions are very limited. And very slow overall. It took ages tuning/searching for channels. The only positive thing is it's price.
As an after thought, why complain? All of the TV manufacturers are foreign brands, richer sounds and John Lewis, who both offer free extended warranty are British companies who have to subsidise the failings of these foreign companies with their own (and our) money if the product fails. It is interesting to consider why the government preferences foreign companies profits over British ones. Don't you think?

You think the British companies are doing us a favour? No. It's law for the seller to protect goods up to 6 years. They also increase the cost of the TV based on failure rates to cover any faults that may happen.
The government doesn't really prefer. The people prefer cheaper. It turns out that the government isn't as friendly as other countries when it comes to making cheaper products.

It's not really the law that suppliers have to protect the product for 6 years, it's consumer law that allows a customer to claim that a product has an inherent fault and make a claim during 6 years.... it's not that simple and some suppliers, Currys for example, will go out of their way to not be helpful. You might have to pay and get an independent expert report on the fault and then make a claim against the original supplier, they're then supposed to reimburse/repair/partially refund you. It's a far cry from giving you 6 years of warranty.

Most warranties may not be that great when you come to claim, it's better than not having a long warranty, but sometimes they'll just offer you a partial refund if repair is uneconomical.

Sure consumer law which is what the guarantees from John Lewis and richer sounds are reflecting. They're just making it slightly easier by advertising it up front.
True, other places like Currys aren't as helpful.

yes that's true and any longer warranty is a good thing rather than relying on consumer law which sometimes is worthless when dealing with unscrupulous retailers.

£349 for a 49" 4K TV is pretty darned cheap and with a 5 year warranty means you're fairly well covered for such a low priced thing. If it gives 5 years service for no additional cost then it's pretty cheap entertainment.

Was committed to buying the Hisense but took a look a the Toshy is John Lewis and was well impressed. Had a better picture IMO than an LG which was a £100 more

I recognise your comment on goods being "protected". the difficulty with this position is one has to resort to a legal position rather than being a position of rights. I do feel an item should come with a manufacturers offer written into the contract of sale. I don't necessarily agree with your position on cheaper goods, if we look at both apple and the high end Samsung, or Google products people are not choosing cheap ,they are choosing what they perceive as a "quality" item. I just think companies such as these milk the system by not offering a warranty of several years and governments choose companies and bosses before the welfare of the people. Of course without capitalist exploitation one might say the would be no welfare for the people as there would be no money.

Not sure about that. Lots of people are skipping phones every year and buying every 2nd or 3rd year. Especially because they're hitting the £1k barrier. If you notice, the latest generations from Apple, Google, Samsung were coming up cold on this site (until prices were dropped) because there are equivalents for less than half price.
Edited by: "rapid111111" 10th Feb
okay, i agree, but if the products are reliable enough to last last 2/3 years why not offer an extended warranty period?
i would suggest that manufacturers recognise failures will be present but expect the unlucky to carry the can. being a minority the unlucky will not be heard above the shouting of the believers with a "perfect" product.
also, determining what perceived quality is not an easy subject, flag waving yanks will tell the world how fantastic google and apple products are. their money owns the media really doesn't it? we also know finding an unbiased voice is not easy. there will be marketing money pushing the idea that extended warranties are a waste of time that we don't need them as business is trustworthy and they have our interests at heart. apple takes something like $150 profit from every item they sell. apple are an unfair and extreme example i agree, but so greedy they will sacrifce a "few" followers for a few dollars of profit rather than extend the warranty period.
i went away and had a think.
if there were a 5% failure rate
consumerreports.org/pro…ty/
then a 5% increase in price should cover the costs of failure. a £600 tv would cost an extra £30, however the after market warranty cover for 3 years costs £90. a multiple of 3 times. it becomes easy to see an offshoot business selling warranties would be profitable.
