All Sharp Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
N 55" for 399
I mean posted on here.
Just bear in mind that every now and then you could find a 49in Finlux Smart 4k TV fron this site now and then for £220.
For the price it's ok... (popcorn)
Uh, stay away from Sharp tvs. I got one last year from Tesco 49 inch smart TV. Next I'll pay more and get a decent brand....
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.
The HUKD clique and fake heat perhaps?
“Smart” features on sharp tv is shocking. Wish I’d spent a bit more and got different brand. Always slow and crashing so use laptop instead of smart features
You had to wait 7 months to get the appliance made safe. The recall would never have happened without a "This Morning " campaign ( amongst others ) and this goes to the core of the argument. Manufacturers are supposed to make appliances as fool proof as possible and to respond quickly when problems arise. Neither happened in this case and the lack of care for their customers was astounding. Tumble drier technology is hardly new and there was no excuse for this. Other manufactures seem to be able to make Tumblers without this problem despite most people not being as perfect as you and occasionally forgetting to clean the filter.
Hi Im not quite sure why you're pointing out to me that hotpoint dryers are a particular risk. If you re-read what i said you'll see I knew that already. I don't need to Google what I already know, thanks. It was a fire risk if not maintained properly according to the manufacturers instructions. Specifically, the risk was higher if the lint container was not emptied out. Having common sense, I emptied mine after each use. The risk was therefore non existent. Your 'chainsaw' analogy implies i got hurt, but kept using it. Nobody in my household hot hurt, as there was no risk - due to me using the appliance properly. (embarrassed)
Seven months with a known fire risk in your home? I removed mine and took it to the recycling point the moment I found out. And yes Hotpoint's are a particular risk, just google it. You might have well have said " I had a chainsaw which took my arm off but that won't put me off them ".
Are you saying that any tumble dryer that isn't hotpoint always gets cleared out after each use by the owner? (cheeky) It was quite specific to hotpoint/Indesit dryers. We had one, took them 7 months to "modify" it which was disappointing but wouldn't put me off buying that brand again.
Tumble dryer issue relates to all makes and is basically down to people not clearing out the filter after each use
Thanks. I found from Chinese forum that TAIWAN ROM version 127 has face unlock but removed in later version. Official ROM is always the best option due to the Google Pay and the Banking Apps. Magisk would work in custom rom but it really depends the version.
Not on official Taiwan ww rom no. It probably will with custom rom. Someone on xda has managed to port Nokia 7 android one rom to it with just nfc to fix. I am sure there will be good rom support in time as its on official treble support list too.
Does it support face unlock?
Mine's been showing ready to hand to postman for a similar length of time.
Mines showing received notification from Belgium Post for a week now and no updates since.
For £99 more you can have 4K 55 inch Toshiba! This is cold, not worth more than £80.
I purchased it a week ago Model numbers are similar So hence the question
Did I have the link for the Currys TV? I could not find it
Currys is £69 cheaper?
Same here, nothing to blame really, excellent tv for that money i think and the youtube button on the remote control is a bonus for my girl :)
Have sharp been bought by anyone in recent years? They disappeared for quite some time
That’s what I originally thought.. https://www.hotukdeals.com/feedback/highlights-page-2921423
100 heat i think
it's going for that KS7000 look (the stand, not the PQ!!)
Thanks for letting me know, I have expired the post :)
It's now £269 in Currys Megadeal Easter extravaganza!
arrived next day delivery. good for the money
Thanks for the reply the unit I have is only 24" wide space is limited last tv was a 48" and it fitted fine but it had a plinth stand which I prefer. After a week without a tv I need to make a decision soon.
I had the same problem, the store I got mine from had it on display, with me taking it back I don't have the exact measurements but the unit that mine went on was 32" wide and it fitted fine :)
Fair price but I opted for a Samsung UE22K5000 22 Inch Full HD LED TV which is a smaller screen but Full HD and Freeview HD channels do look very good. Sound is ok, pretty basic but possibly better than some others.
I personally prefer samsung
'fraid not. Sorry.
Yeah sorry, you can get a half decent 4k for not too much more. I have a 43 inch Sharp Tele.....it's pretty crap, takes ages to start up, the smart features are crap too.....spend a little more to get something decent
Sorry OP but too expensive for it's quality (actually a Vestel or UMC made TV) and only Full HD. Around £100 too much I would say (Tesco did a very similar Sharp model for £199 previously, but I appreciate a time machine would be needed to get that now).
Poor deal. Get 4k tvs now 4 same price
All from the Home Inspiration Range - Nice products but not amazing prices (annoyed)
Got one of these, the handles are crap. Best for light use only.
Point well taken :) Amazon ofcourse want to push prime through as many homes as they can - that much is very clear
Not personal mate - it's a good deal IF you're buying something else to take it over £20. You've just followed the convention on HUKD but I have a problem with that convention (and a bit of a downer on Amazon). Hot for those it suits!
That’s fair but in my defense I clearly mentioned all of that so as to not make it misleading -:)
Free delivery starts at £20 so I can't have one of these for £4.46. It's not just your post - I have a problem with a lot of Amazon posts as they ARE misleading (Add on; Prime; etc...).
I buy small electricals from Aldi. Your power tools, blenders etc. Good quality and 3 year no fuss warranty. When it comes to smaller TVs it has to look good which you don’t normally get from Aldi. Big TVs I go with user/journo reviews and they don’t tend to review TVs from Aldi. I do own a Hisense TV for our main TV though, and that falls into the Aldi mould.
I buy most items from them , never a problem . The Germans are much more advanced in technology . And almost all electronic items are made in China. Brand names and brand loyalty have a added cost involved. I rather have more warranty for peace of mind . If something does not work as expected , Aldi / Lidl are happy to return. That is why they are growing so fast . People vote for them with their feet . Only snobs who visit Waitrose and pay double for same items hate them .
Even 1080p looks better on 4k TV due upscaling. 4k comes HDMI 2.0 , upscaling and hdcp 2.2 so more bandwidth for better picture.
And don’t forget to add another £1000 a year for Sky if like me your available broadband is not fast enough to stream 4K. 10 years ago I spent £1500 on a 48” smart 3D HD Samsung after being told that 3D was the future and new channels, apart from Sky, were launching soon. It’s now in the dining room as a second set. Once 4K is widely available and the norm there will be 8K teles in the shops.
As long as Sky charge extra for HD Pack most of us won't even utilise our Full HD TVs to the Max - Me included
Crap software. Sharp smart TV. Bad choice I made.
Yeah, there haven't been many reports of Vestel TVs catching fire because the engineering tolerances were too small.
There were few left when I've been at the store, Some other tv's are reduced also.
Should say where it's assembled on the back then you will tell if its vestel or umc. I have no issues with the TV's just been on the recieving end of breakdowns, that said Samsung are low on my list for their QC.
When I initially set mine up the UMC logo appeared on the screen
My LG lasted three years before it got a green line down it panel failure then a year later it developed a switch off fault which eventually means it's one week on one week off so I have to disagree. My next TV when a hotdeal comes up won't be LG and will be JL or richer sounds just wondering how you affect the warranty do they collect them free of charge as I don't drive. And is it easy to get them to price match a deal on here how do you do that
My sky remote is controlling mine ?
That was in North America, these Sharp's are made by UMC. Still nothing to do with Sharp though, other than the name badge on the front. However it looks like they, or their new owner Foxconn has bought a stake in UMC taking back control. So Sharps may well change soon... for the better? who knows?....they never made particularly great TV's even when they were Sharp through and through.
Have had two of the non-smart versions of these for two years. Mine are freeviewHD only. They were £179 each from Tesco back in Jan 16. Shows what the plummeting £ has done to the price of electronics!! The TVs have a good picture for the money, but beware their remotes are Bluetooth/Wireless rather than infrared so Sky remotes etc won’t control them....
European Sharp's are made by UMC. I got the cheaper version on Black Friday and it needs to go in for repair for a second time due to a bunch of faults (TV Guide crashes TV on exit, network error in apps, reset function doesn't work...). Smaller Toshiba I bought at the same time has been faultless.
Back at £70 online :(
agreed, I have this one and really regret buying it. Not even big enough for a bag of microwave popcorn to turn. Also gets very bad with condensation inside.
spend extra £15 and get 25 liters (angel)
Certainly looks like a UMC design, so expect a poor picture and sluggish/buggy UI. Speaking as a 40" Sharp-branded UMC owner.
Hi, Ive just got this delivered today and im wondering if you know - - Whats the best setting for a normal wash & dry? - Can you do a wash on its own or a dry on its own? Thanks :)
Anyone buy this who knows what the best setting is for a normal wash & dry?
just using it for the first time, i can confim that Sharp is produced by Vettel, will leave some more feedback later, so far got this into daily 60 min wash and 30 min drying, lets see Seems very simple to use, there is a helpful timer, so u know how long till its done, also detects if there is half a load in, dont think u can get anythin better for 349 with that capacity and the 2 years peace of mind too, yes it doesn't look that good next to samsung or lg at the shop... but the price ain't 600 or 700 quid
I 100% agree! any large domestic appliance branded Kenwood is a Currys in house product and are low value so the quality is iffy.
I'd say Kenwood sits below Beko in most cases. Kenwood stuff is mostly made for Currys & rebranded with the Kenwood name. Beko quality has improved over the last few years, but most of these brands only last 2-4 years.
Afraid not @shaytown
Accidentally pressed cold ffs. Is it possible to amend?
How have I only just seen this?! Head added chanchi! (y)
Plenty in store Halifax
Also in store Tesco Thornbury £6.. And they have LOTS of them!
Because you'll upset the TV snobs on HUKD
I bought one on Black Friday and it's been great. I don't get why not to.
I beg you do not buy sharp tvs
