I bought this at £389 last week (Or at least a very similar model, mine is 49U6863) the screen is great quality, the speakers are some of the best I've heard in a while on a TV. Despite "having" Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG, it's only 350nits brightness, so the HDR isn't very impressive so far on Netflix or the PS4. I'm still more than happy with my purchase though

This'll be one of the Toshiba's not done by Toshiba but either of Taiwan's "Compal" or Hisense
Does anyone have any feedback about the smart features? I'm thinking about buying one of the Toshibas that Costco has in but I'd hate to have to deal with slow menus

I thought this would be made by Vestel since it shares the same Smart TV interface as a set 'made' by Bush, Hitachi etc.
Also, do they have these in store? I've got my annual Amex voucher to use

Contact your local store and ask pretty much
Not a member of Costco, anyway around this to get the TV?

I've had it freeze on the Freeview Play guide when trying to go back in time, but you can close it and open it again and it;s fine, it's a very temporary thing, and that's happened maybe 3 times in a week. YouTube, Netflix etc are all smooth and I haven't had any issues

Thanks. Are all the major apps there?

I think you can buy online as a non member but with a 10% surcharge, so probably not worth it. The Costco 5 year warranty is a bonus though and they are very good if you need to take stuff back.

Amazon Prime is the one that's not there, but Netflix, YouTube, iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and the Channel 5 one are all there. There is an app store but I only looked at it once and it seemed to be full of Russian apps, can look again later to see what else is there

Very true. Apparently Vestel made lots of Toshiba's but last Nov Hisense bought up the Toshiba name for TVs dunno if Vestel still do make them, but I wouldn't have thought so if Hisense bought the name nearly a year ago Hisense-made should be appearing by now -the stand looks a little familiar though, not like Hisense OR Vestel

It is a Vestel set. Just got mine out of the box.
Anyone know if it has (or you can add) the Plex app?

Also for a novice what's the significance of this Vestel vs HiSense debate? Is one generally seen as being better than the other?
