*Update 24/12 - back down to £399*

Not sure I've seen this model lower than this before, a fair bit of TV for the cash. Was recently £409 with a code, but has now dropped to £399. Sadly no scart socket

Has 3x USB, 4X HDMI / Wi-Fi / Freeview Play

I'm with you. An unashamed TV brand snob (for good reason!)....but if you are looking for a decent TV at very good prices, Hisense has got to be one of your choices

For a minute I thought it was better than the 6800 - I don’t know why but I read it as the 6900 not 5900 and nearly snapped it up at that price
Does this one support the 4k apps?
Anyone think it's possible to get a 55" 4K at £300?

On the site it says it supports Ultra HD 4K Streaming and lists all the apps, so I would imagine so. However I'd do a quick google search to confirm

How does 55" 4K Smart TV for £349 sound? I've ordered one, due for delivery Monday. 5 Yr guarantee too. Same tv on Amazon from seller.

I believe John Lewis stock this brand.

I have this TV and I love it. A few things:

* Out of the box, it's only got HDR support on two of the HDMI sockets, and a lot of the inbuilt apps don't work (Netflix, YouTube, etc), but once you connect it to the internet (it's got built in wi-fi which is amazingly stable, beats the hell out of my PS4's), there's a firmware update that sorts all that out.

* Image needs much in the way of tweaking from the standard settings, but once you get that sorted out it's lovely.

* The iPlayer app supports the BBC's new 4k HDR streaming tech (it's got a weird name I can't remember), so Blue Planet 2 in full 4k HDR will be available on it from Sunday night

* Be warned - the leg base is very wide. I had to get a new TV unit for it because the feet are so near the edge that it wouldn't fit on my previous one (which admittedly was only supposed to go up to 40", but had been holding a 50" non-4k Panasonic previously as it had a more central stand).

I got this for £450 and was delighted. At £400, it's an absolute bargain.
I have had a 50 hisense for a year these are the best bang for buck on the market as use quality lg panels as apposed to vestal panels in nearly all other budget TVs, 4K is amazing and sound is excellent on it's on HDR would be best but more expensive
I bought the 43” 4k uhd in July and this week, its packed up, requiring a new main board!!! Hisense wont replace it even though its less than 6 months old - so im waiting now for a part to be ordered n sent out to repair co...... ZZZzzzzzzzz

Avoid Hisense like the plaugue - i got my fingers burnt at the expense of a 4k for less than £400(poo)
Can anyone confirm, but the pics on the website suggest it has a satellite input. For freesatHD. But it doesn’t list it in the specs and I can’t seem to find a good data sheet on the connectivity. Does this have freesatHD?
You should get a scart to Hdmi coverter with it

It may be just a few capacitors on the power supply board that need replacing. Quite a few comments on the internet 're. Hisense using poor quality capacitors in some of their TVs.

If the issue is the TV not coming out of standby, going by itself into standby, taking a long time to come out of standby etc and you're handy with a screwdriver and multimeter, replacement caps are only a few quid (and you can source caps of much higher quality) and it will only be an hour of your time.

Does it support 10 bit HDR?
Hot!
Would anyone recommend this or for an extra £30 this LG with a 6 ytr guarantee?

Personally the Hisense
I've had my Hisense N5700 nearly a week now. Very impressed.
Glorious picture, easy to use and the interface is snappy. No sitting waiting for apps to start up. BBC iPlayer is a joy to use and the 4k demo was absolutely spectacular. Can't wait for Sunday 4k showing of Blue Planet 2, although watching in HD on the Hisense was a treat.

Assuming you bought from a retailer than directly from Hisense, are you not aware you go back to the retailer to have it sorted, replaced or refunded?. If Hisense won't replace it then fine, that's between the retailer and manufacturer, your rights are with the retailer alone as that's who sold you the TV and under law responsible to resolve, repair, replace or refund.
Yes, a retailer would be allowed a period to repair, but also pretty sure that there would be a "reasonable" period that this has to be done in if its the retailer stating they are waiting for a new part for repair than just digging their heels in the ground over their legal obligations.

OOS and more than £331 anyhow
Been looking for a TV to replace my still surprisingly good 10yr old Sony.

What do you think is better between this Hisense and the Samsung 49" MU6400 with 5yr warranty from John Lewis.

The MU6400 has a base that will fit my current TV stand at least, meaning I won't need to buy a new one so the price difference between the 2 might be negated as the Hisense will need a new stand.
So this supports Freeview *and* Freesat?

What do you mean?


Well I have a UHD youview box, but it is not on the list of supported devices, nor is my TV (though the same hardware may well be in the list under a different manufacturer)
