Before anyone gets too excited, Toshiba don't make their own TVs anymore and are all re-branded turkish Vestel's. Same as all of the other well known brands apart from Samsung, LG and Sony.

Just pick up any unbranded TV and it will be literally identical.

I'm tempted given the guarantee, but I'll be paying on a credit card for the protection anyway.

Worth reading just for the "lively debate" that breaks out.

It doesn't make any sense to pay £399 for a unbranded TV in 55" when you can pick up a 50" model for £299.

I bought the 49" for £346 with surcharge. Same warranty applies. TV seems fine for the money.

No - but u have to pay 5% surcharge (£19.99). Cheapest option would be to pay £15 for annual online subscription.
costco.co.uk/how…rks

  • Published prices are for members & online subscribers only.
  • A surcharge of 5% (+VAT at the standard rate) will be added to total purchases made by non-Costco UK members and non costco.co.uk online subscribers.

can you recommend an alternative to the Hisense 55m7000 as I cannot get that anymore, similar price and similar quality please

Panel would be Turkish or Chinese I'd imagine, damn Costo ripped off Comet with their logo a tad lol

Most of the cheaper lines are unfortunately, including low end 4K stuff.

Hisense aren't and neither are Philips. Although Philips TV division is no longer owned by Philips but by a company called TPV whose other main arm is AOC monitors.

Panasonic aren't at the mid-range and above (700+), the lower seem to have Vestel parts. I'm not sure on the exact setup though, but they do seem to have more involvement that just changing the badge as things like the Smart TV system are their own.

Vestel is by far the biggest budget manufacturer out there and has most of the market either directly or through rebadging for the brand owner. Hitatchi, toshiba, finlux, sharp, celcius, JVC, Blaupunkt etc. There one or two others such as Cello/Goodmans TVs which seem to be a chinese ODM (although probably not Hisense judging from the reported quality).

But yeah, the main manufacturers are Vestel, Samsung, LG, Sony, Panasonic, Hisense and Philips.

Just one of the many trade-offs in a budget TV. It's a minor difference easily swamped by others under typical TV use. I'd only avoid it if you're using it up close, such as on a desk for a PC.

There's no such thing at this time of year, if you can't get the 2016 range you'll have to wait for the 2017 one to come down in price, pay more or settle for less.

thanks for the advice, is there a similar TV in terms of quality in the current range you may know, I understand I would have to pay more due to timing factors.

Generally the winter. Prices start out at and launch in june and then reduce until late November and December. Models then drop to their lowest price individually from about spring onwards as the stock of that model runs out and the last ones are put on clearance.

Well the N6800 seems to be closer to the M5500 and I haven't seen any sign of the NU8700 yet in the UK which is the next model up.

Something like the Samsung KU65/KU66 models would probably be the closest approximation at a similar price where there's still stock. They are curved though.

Bought this range full in the knowledge that it wasn't a Toshiba of old.

Won't you miss the 6 inches

10bit HDR ?

This model gets good customer reviews, and for the money you can't really argue for 4K. Although, if you're not desperate to upgrade, I'd recommend saving a few hundred and going for a HDR Premium set. HDR is a much bigger step up in picture quality than 4K is, even if the set is not displaying HDR content

Can someone recommend a good 43" around 350 or 400£. Please guys 😣

Good price for 4k tv, shame no HDR (yeah I know dream on). Ok if it has Vestel panel on, but how about rest of electronics? Has anybody actually dismantled it to see what's inside and compared to all them brands Vestel rebadges for? Toshiba is well known electronics manufacturer and quality of product is always reasonable and reliable so I wonder if they just use Vestel panel and put their own electronics on it? To manufacture your own panel would cost a fortune and competition in the market is too high with low profits, I can understand why Toshiba uses vestel panels.

A few hundred? Try closer to a thousand.

Although if you're seeing a difference outside of HDR content then it's because you've bought a higher end TV.

Vestel bought Toshiba's European factory.

Depends what you compare it too.

This would look good compared to a 720p budget TV from 2010. Their target market is this sort of consumer, not those that will compare it against a mid-high range TV because thats an entire different price band (£700+).

Admittedly I bought the Samsung UE55KS9000, which is a clear jump up in picture quality over standard 4K TV's - irrespective of HDR content. I would have thought you could buy a lower spec 10bit HDR spec TV for around £600 on a sale that would offer a far superior picture than a standard 8bit 4K panel. Personally I'd wait for black Friday if there's nothing out there at a reasonable price.

Great price, I've bought the 49 inch for £329ish from Costco.

Beware of buying any tvs. DO your research. I bought a Panasonic and didn't realise that it doesn't support the blink box app now talktalk movies!
