Is the price including VAT?

This close to Black Friday i'd wait. Even so, add a £100 or so and you can have yourself a Sony. £449 for a 49" Vestel sporting a Tosh badge - thanks but no thanks.

£599.89 (inc VAT)
£499.91 (exc VAT)

May ex has got the 49 inch.6763 model at £425 from John Lewis and the picture quality is excellent. So I would guess this model would be the same or better as this looks to be a model up from the 6763

Expand with why ?

'Tosh' was just a joke. (Toshiba)

but saying that, (since you asked) a 4k TV at sub 500 quid is pointless.

4k picture will be poor, and HD will be scaled and worse than a HD TV... i don't see the point of these TV's at all

As above HD TV, not 4k

You can get a decent HD TV for this money, wasted on a 4k set

Mm not sure I agree but thanks anyway

I bought the 55 inch 4k Toshiba from Costco for £380 inc vat which I though was a bargain. I knew these were vestel but thought I would give it a go. I really wanted to like it but I couldn't. The colours were not vibrant. The backlight was dim. Dynamic range was terrible. Viewing angle was terrible. No matter how much I messed with the picture settings I just could not get it right. And the freeview hd channels sound was out of sync. I wasn't expecting a lot for the money but it was that bad I had to take it back. Also my xbox one s would not recognise it as a 4k tv so would
Only connect in 1080.

Of course you don't

Put it this way,

You got to ask yourself why you would want to upgrade to a 4k tv, superior picture right? a budget 4k TV won't give you a picture that's much better than a good HD TV, sometimes the picture can be worse.

Also, HD content which is much more readily available right now will look inferior on a 4k TV, this is because a 4k TV's native resolution is not HD, so the TV has to upscale it, and on a budget TV the scaler is typically also budget and poor. So you end up with an inferior HD picture, and coupled with a sub standard 4k picture... you're not getting any benefit updraging to this.

HD TV's have dropped in price due to 4k, either wait for 4k to drop in price or stick with HD..

It;s just advice though, each to their own

Honestly interested. Can you please recommend a 55" HD for this price, or under £500 at most? I've been recommended the Samsung M5500 but it still seems fairly pricey and I can't find anything else from one of the top brands as everything they make these days seems to be 4k.

Hisense h49n5700 for same sort of money at Argos with tvs10 code for 10% off

49" TV's are still much cheaper than 55" though, so finding a 'decent' 55" at this price isn't that easy. There are a number of 49" HD TV's in this price range that are a better buy than this.

If you're honestly interested then my first advice would be to visit avforums, lots of members there who upgrade constantly and have to get the best equipment all the time. That means they sell their equipment on, and most of the time it still has plenty of warranty left with it.

The next would be to wait for black friday, there are a couple of HD panels that may go down in price. Including the 55" Samsung m5550

Any idea what the go-to TV is at around the £500 mark, between 40 and 50"? I assume Sony? 4K not a must.

The Sony LED TV's are ok (at this price range) and of course the Samsung mentioned above, both of these will give you a much better HD picture than a budget 4k set.

there is obviously much less choice with 1080p TV's than before of course. Most new budget TV's are now 4k by default.

Thanks for the advice. I've been looking at used sets on eBay/Gumtree, but find that they are nearly the same price as a brand new set on offer. I'll have a look at avforums as well, but the plan is indeed to wait for black Friday unless something great comes along first.

Just want to have an idea of what would be the best option as there will be plenty of choice for sure. I mainly watch Prime video at the moment.

How would you rate the M5500 vs a Samsung series 6 (6100 for eg.) as they seem to be priced similarly?

Would you recommend anything else instead that currently is between £600 and £700 but could potentially drop enough on black Friday?
