All Finlux Discounts, Offers and Sale - June 2018
I’ve got a Finlux, it’s the non smart TV. Wouldn’t recommend it though, sounds awful and the picture isn’t great. Might be better as a TV for the kids room
They both have HDR looking at the specs
It's a different model. Look at the stand.
Looks like you can get this from groupon for £249, also get the 55" for £329
is this good for ps4 gaming?
You've sold me. Out of interest what model number is your 3d 4k Finlux?
Are you one of those that look at the mantelpiece when poking the fire?
What about the Medion 55" Smart 4k TV at Aldi for £399 With a 3 year warranty. You can't go wrong if it fails take it back, there great at giving you your CASH back 5*.
As above unable to order. Sold out?
"Not yet available" - is it gone ?
Showing as £349. FAR better deal is the "55 version on groupon for £329. Had a Finlux 3d tv with no real issues apart from the sound which was 'tinny'.
Looks like groupon is selling the same TV for £249 https://www.groupon.co.uk/goods/v1-tv?sort=price:asc
Price seems to have risen to £349.96 now.
My filmic 43 uhd has been great 2 years in. Can’t complain
Says it's HDR10 compliant.
I bought my parents a 32" 1080p smart Finlux TV for £200 about 3 years ago. Still works perfectly fine , the smart part is just a little slow. Would highly recommend the brand in general as had no issues at all.
Finlux is there own brand and used 2 get panels of Samsung unless its changed now
another vestel but if you are for a large tv and have very limited budget , you probably won't find anything cheaper.
Looks like there is no logo!
Finlux? Looks thin
Got a sharp from Curry's for £199 for a 40 inch
World Cup this Summer - the peak TV selling period globally for TV makers. But the world looks as if it is heading into recession so methinks we will see some panic hot TV deals at the time of the World Cup... especially if there is a boycott of it by certain nations.
Can you expand? Whose the clique and why does it benefit them to post deals?
I bought a 43inch, full hd, smart, Sharp TV about 18 months ago for £250.....this is shocking.....and so is the TV. Takes ages to start up, even when the screen is on, you can't change channel or input for about another minute, and the only smart function that works is YouTube.....sometimes.
Awesome value for money!
I have the model before this ...fantastic picture and tv
Voted HOT! excellent deal!
Voted Hot.. Absolute one not to miss . (excited)
It could be like peering through a dirty window or likely to burn your house down. As long as it's 4k or quickcharge it's hot hot hot! :D
49" Finlux bought through these threads ....use it in the bedroom ....on freeview off an inside arial Picture is very good HD is excellent an 4k through YouTube stream is very good don't be out off by brand snobs for the money im more than happy ... (y)
You where it around your neck in the winter
We purchased a New49” 4K Finlux from Amazon for £230 I’m watching it now and the picture quality is really good. Sound isn’t that great so we bought a Monitor Audio sound bar.
My 6yr old Samsung PS51D6900 plasma also disagrees with your comment, the only display I've seen to better it is OLED, and even then it's a close one.
Great thanks, just ordered, good price
I’ve just ordered it. I’ve been after a cheap telly for the dining room. TopCashback too
Wow, looks a brilliant deal.
Anyone know what the response rate is like on this for gaming?
This deal from AO EBAY £341 with code P10MAY https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Toshiba-55U6663DB-55-Inch-Smart-LED-TV-4K-Ultra-HD-Freeview-HD-4-HDMI-New/302676972274?_trkparms=&rpp_cid=5ad6108a3e7db303182516ab&rpp_icid=5ae085be9850871f9fdfe386
Far too much snobbery goes on on this site (intact all forum based sites tbf). My personal experience is this... I had an LG 3D TV, *upgraded to a 50" Polaroid TV for £200 (thanks to this site) Picture quality of all non 3d content was on a par. Build quality of the LG was better, but who cares when you don't touch the TV once it's in place. Price difference was over £400, and there was no way a £400 picture difference. I have subsequently purchased a Samsung MU6700. The picture quality and build quality is much crisper than the Polaroid, it's brighter and handles motion a little better. BUT it's £300 more than what I paid for the Polaroid. In my opinion there isn't a £300 difference in picture quality. My point is, those on a budget, in most cases will be very happy with this, or a Polaroid or a vestel based TV for the money they're paying. If you have the spare cash and want a higher spec TV then I would suggest doing it, but only marginally.
Ah, the 'Finlux' quality...
Will this have Smart IPTV app?
Yer, Was my deal, Still can't believe that price.
You'll need a soundbar
Wow £199 would have been a great price
3 camels shows this was down to £199.99 earlier this year in Feb, so will wait for the DeLorean to arrive again
OK then... cheers for the random questions for no point. :/
I have a perfectly fin5 Panasonic 65" oled and a 50" pioneer kuro. So really no need😪
To find yourself a better TV (y)
Why would I need to do that?
My Finlux TV lasted 1 year and few days. Finlux direct refused to repair or replace. Waste of money.
Sorry bil bob she still has one my mistake
454 is a scam seller on amazon btw. But appliances direct is 669. Lot of tv for that money. Nice that it has freeview play. Wish my Sammy had that.
My parole officer had a finlux picture is very good
If you are in east Lancashire you are welcome to come and have a look at my Toshiba 4K and I could take you round to see that very model of Finlux that my friend bought two weeks ago :)
Pretty sure there was a news item on Click the other week stating that all TV manufacturers were dropping 3D.
Well I shall have to take a look at this, I've not yet got into 4K TV's so only going by what you see online and need to see it myself. No doubt 4K TV's will become pretty much the standard as manufacturers move over to it across their ranges of TVs. There's no doubt that a 4K TV of this size for around £300 is stupidly cheap and hard to ignore.
I am amazed at how my 4K Toshiba upscales even SD to look almost as good as HD did on my earlier HD TV, not as good as 4K but a big improvement. A friend has just been round and he was saying that he could not see the point of 3D but admitted he had not seen any recently. I put jungle Book in 3D on my Toshiba and he admitted it was worth having and he has a 4K Panasonic LED TV. I then put Warcraft on at 4K and he agreed that it almost looked like 3D so if they had done full 4K in 3D we would have the best viewing experience possible to date. Unfortunately it is looking like only those of us with projectors will be able to enjoy 3D soon, if the manufacturers do end up dropping all production of 3D TVs. If you know how to watch them there are plenty of movies available in 3D and also plenty in 4K but none combining them yet from what I can see.
4K does look superb, you're absolutely right but how much 4K is there to watch compared to regular definition or full HD? not much at the moment, of course that will slowly change. More important to many is how does a 4K TV display regular definition and high definition images? - some suggest non HD looks terrible on 4K TVs. I must be honest, I've not got one and not seen a 4K tv displaying SD programming and I dare say no shop will ever do that intentionally.
I ordered received a cancellation email then later an email saying dispatched. check you haven't also had a cancellation email - bet you have
crap with the same company?
I had this shenanigans with an SSD recently. Supposedly dispatched but the tracking number supplied was fake and nothing was dispatched or arrived. Refunded in a few days after filing a claim.
It would appear that the thread has been deleted which raises even more concerns. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/finlux-49-inch-ultra-hd-freeview-play-led-smart-tv-49utd297b-p-energy-class-a-2615188 Also that wildrob68 response below
the thread has been removed. i ordered at 89.75 price had email its been dispatched.
is it 10bit hdr
Do not buy finlux, lasted just over 1 year and they will not repair for free The price is hot but waste of money.
Finlux arranged pick-up by courier at the same time as the replacement. Good luck and persevere.
ok thanks, i will try my luck, one more question, how did you send it back? and who payed for that?
I contacted Finlux customer service direct. Took many emails to convince them of what to me was an obvious problem but finally they agreed to replace the tv.
I have only used it the last couple of nights for the testing of audio for someone else in the other thread, watching a couple of episodes of QI and Mock the Week. I didn't notice anything like that but it was really only background viewing for me, though it doesn't surprise me. In terms of navigation of the iPlayer app, I rank the speed to be about that of the Now TV v1 box, maybe slightly faster but not much and that was only a 720p media streamer. The v2 Now TV box is definitely faster to navigate than this TV.
so I bought one of these, and the picture is excellent, however the picture on the internal iplayer is rubbish (aliasing, artifacts, motion blur). It's like the processor doesn't have the power to keep up with HD iPlayer. I can switch to iPlayer via a Chromecast and it is picture perfect. The internal one seems to have problems. Anyone else find this?
it's still available just gone up in price to £299. Luckily I got mine in time before price went up and was delivered yesterday.. I'd still say a good price at 299 personally, I'm really happy with it. I'm no TV expert but picture looks good to me and getting on Netflix a doddle.
mine just arrived yesterday. Test YouTube 4k and Netflix 4k and was very impressed ! It's on par with my 1.5 year old LG 4k. The set feels a little cheap and plastic and the sound it not good but at 229 it's an absolute seal ! smart system is very responsive also.
awwww missed it anymore similar price ?
Okay, so I received them today. The do indeed look nice and build quality isn't awful. What I will say, though, is that sounds like you'd imagine £20 headphones to sound like. Don't expect Bose or even Beats sound quality out of these.
Thanks! They look nice and the price seems good. Think I'll take the plunge :)
I've got a pair, they're pretty decent for standard use - listening to music and watching movies etc. They're pretty well made and they look good! They come in a box very similar to beats headphones. I'd recommend them. Although I would buy them from amazon as their customer service was way better than Finlux. :)
Anyone got these? Want something to connect to my iPhone and my Switch.
Decided to order these headphones from Amazon for the extra fiver as their customer service is so good. Glad I did! They arrived covered in black dirty marks, I think they were a pair someone had returned - they're dispatched by finlux so it wouldn't have mattered if I had ordered straight from their site. Amazon sent me the £25 to purchase a replacement pair whereas finlux didn't seem to want to help when I contacted them. I personally think they're great for the money! Perfect for watching movies on the train, not sure what they're like with music yet though. Will put them to the test!
I'm getting a weird issue where the menu doesn't come up on screen sometimes when I'm watching sky via hdmi 2? Always works on the TV output though.
Hdmi 1 is ARC enabled.
Don't suppose anyone can help with my similar problem... I have an av unit with a ps4, Wii u and Chromecast attached which all work fine giving surround sound with this TV. However, when I use the inbuilt Netflix on the Finlux the amp doesn't give sound and I have to turn off the av unit and use the TV speakers. This a shame as I'd gotten used to surround sound with Netflix. Does this TV lack ARC or something? My Freesat box has also stopped working completely but that doesn't seem to be due to the new TV...
Does anyone have a link to the latest firmware? Thanks
Connecting at 36Mbps now before I couldn't get a speed test it just timed out. Still slow connection that though as my BB is 76Mbps. Still good for money in my opinion.
SCART port. oO
there a 4k one on there also couple of pound difference
was £799 X)
They did not say it was 4K
