A 65 inch smart 4k tv...most likely the cheapest in the UK!

Feature rich for the price but obviously can't compare with the quality of Samsung, Sony's, etc.

If youre looking for size on a budget this could be a decent choice.

Trouble is... we have become such brand addicts to a point.... we refuse to even consider others... even if they
turn out to be better than the ones we prefer... but I don't know one brand that is good at everything they make

I think I’d rather the Hisense 65” from Costco @ £599

Had a cello for years, never put a foot wrong unlike the so called superior LG.
Brand isn't everything, my Isis TV (seriously!) performs better than my toshiba.
Good luck with that I'll stick with LG.

I've still got my regular HD 6 year old 32inch Sony TV, but the pictures so super clear and awesome, even the promise of something bigger can't tempt me away

Paid £600 for my Hisense 65N5300 from Costco recently. And I think it's awesome.

Not sure on this, but there does seems to be brand snobbery with TV's like every other consumer area. Which is a shame.

I might be an exception to that (I have a tendency to be the odd one though )
These days I tend to be completely review driven when it comes to big products, I need to see a few hundred genuine reviews for a product before I'm willing to part with my cash..... Result is pretty much everything I now own is a different brand

Don't get your reviews off here though. If it's not a big brand it's pointless buying according to this site.

Presumably from that your LG developed a fault? Not all of them do (in fact, the vast majority don't) but that is a side matter to picture and sound quality, which is very important in a TV.
When it comes to off brands like these you’re more likely to have quirky issues such as noisy power supplies (squeals, buzzing etc) poor bordering on useless sound as well as a limited menu system with little scope for calibration, in most cases you can’t even adjust the backlight – you don’t get this with Samsung or LG TV’s. I’ve tried a couple of Seiki TV’s and they’ll all been a disappointment (they use the same generic parts as Cello) It’s a shame because a lot of the time they use quality LCD cells from the likes of Samsung, Sharp and AUO but mess them up using their own super cheap hybrid backlight-case solution and lack of diffusers that spoils things to the point you can see individual led’s and the supports (assuming its backlit and not edge) These are a false economy, the older CCFL TV’s and really early LED models Cello and UMC knocked out were okay but these are rubbish. The only off brand I would recommend is Hisense – they actively update and support their TV’s and, considering the price are relatively well made.
I can see the pixels from here!.

2 failed both with half a dark screen, I will never buy LG again. Supposedly a ballast issue but I bought replacements and they didn’t work.

At just under 3 pixels per millimeter you must have pretty good eyesight, buddy

That may have been the case if it was a long time ago, but as they are now 'The Big Two', especially with regards to TVs, perhaps it's time to reevaluate them?

You probably sold more of them than others so it just seemed like that. Without proper records it's anecdotal.
The 65 inch Hisense from Costco has 5yr warranty and a concierge service for customer support. It is also more well reviewed than most off brands.

Sound quality really shouldn't be a concern. If you're buying something like this you should get an a/v receiver and some quality speakers.

I’d say over the course of 7 years in electrical retail. My experience says otherwise.
We sold more Nokia phones by far but had more issues with Samsung.
TV wise, Philips at the time sold to a greater degree, alongside Toshiba. LG had more issues alongside Samsung.
Voted hot as I've had my Cello TV for 6 years and it's fantastic. My Samsung lasted 5 and I was never happy with the sound quality.

I'd still like to see the figures, since I assume that you were but one branch and not privy to any reports for the whole business. Big companies like Google, Amazon etc. Often publish failure rates for different brands and models of storage in their server farms. It's a shame we don't have access to anything like that for consumer goods. Most retailers probably don't want to tattle on their suppliers for fear of lost business.
What's the difference between an android smart tv and a normal smart tv? Also why is the cello so good? Does it have features which are not available on other smart tvs?

If you're buying a Cello TV, it's unlikely you'll be pairing it with a high end AV system.

I loved my old goldstar 14 inch TV, it lasted for years - tho did need a good punch on the top to stop a high pitched squeek for the last few years.

if you are not interested in HDR, and just want a generic every day TV, these cheaper sets offer some incredible value..... but then i drive a Fiat and a Nissan so hardly brand consious
Guys is Android TV better than the usual smart TV brands such as Samsung or LG???? What is the difference?

LG is highly regarded, Samsung is pretty good. Android is widely groaned about on TV’s - it’s almost like TV was an afterthought..
Thanks alltaken
Paying £630 for this tv would be a false economy.
I wouldn't buy one for the living room. However, a row of 6 wall mounted in a NOC would be an excellent buy.
