Sony KD43XF7003 43-Inch 4K HDR Ultra HD Smart TV – Happy with my new T.V

Unnecessarily made very complicated. Also the stand design is not great. Again made very complicated. Picture wise quality is good. Software is lacking behind samsung’s by 10 years.

This is a nice 4k ultra high definition tv which produces good quality picture. This sony tv has a 4k x-reality pro engine which up scales non-4k content and motionflow xr which ensures even the fastest action is clear. The sound quality is decent for small compact built in speakers but for the sound enthusiast a external sound bar may be required. The smart tv features is good and easy to use but can be slow and sluggish at times. The built-in wi-fi connectivity is good and reliable and i have not encountered any serious problems whilst using it. You can use the smart tv feature to connect you with apps like youtube and netflix. The design and construction is very good, lightweight and slim with a tidy cable management feature. The 4k ultra high definition display is really clear and and this tv screen has four times the number of pixels than average 1080p full hd tvs. Features:4k x-reality pro: upscales non-4k content to reveal extra detail for increased clarity no matter what you’re watching. Motionflow xr 400hz: every image on the screen refreshes at a higher rate than normal for noticeably smoother motion.

Whilst the basic picture quality of this panel is fantastic it is ruined by one fact. I’ve had my fill of sony using this technology as even when turned off it still does it. Meaning i don’t have a choice one way or another. There is little point in offering a menu choice if that is the case. The tv looks good, is easy to set up and delivers a supreme image in 4k gaming and film. But the moment you watch general television in hd (adverts and television films in particular) the juddering images are too off-putting for me to be able to engage for any period of time. I’ve been a sony customer for over 30 years buying a huge variety of products from them. However, unless they sort this motionflow thing out, i will never buy another sony television again.

The colours are beautiful and the picture quality is sharpthe 4k uhd really shows and i could sit and watch tv all dayplaying the ps4 pro on it is the highlight of my daythe sound quality on the tv is not very good just like any other slim smart tv but it’s nothing a good sound bar can’t fix. All in all, a gorgeous and amazing tv.

Nice clear big screen with good picture quality. Very happy with my purchase.

There are different sized screens available with this tv to suit individual needs. This is the 55 inch screen version. This is a decent 4k ultra high definition tv which produces clear picture and video playback. This sony tv has a 4k x-reality pro engine which up scales non-4k content and motionflow xr which ensures even the fastest action is clear. The sound quality is good for small compact built in speakers but for the sound enthusiast a external sound bar may be required.

Third sony tv in a row all been good.

Hisense H50A6200UK 50 Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV – Great if it suits your use case

Bought as a present and the recipient likes it better than her previous samsung.

Good product with excellent quality of picture.

We wanted a replacement for our old tv that had shown its disapproval of being moved too many times by becoming a fan of silent movies. We bought this one and have been very pleased with it although the legs do appear flimsy and wish they could be moved, however it is very light. The set up was easy connecting to my wifi straightaway, as it did to netflix, youtube and amazon prime. Picture quality is excellent as it the sound although we do have a sound bar attached. The only downside are the legs and care needs to be taken to ensure that the tv fits on the television stand, if not being wall mounted. Our 90cm tv stand was not wide enough. Apparently a common problem we discovered later when seeking a bigger stand (next size up is 120cm). Overlall, an excellent television – well worth the price.

Brilliant tv for the money, on initial setup picture quality wasn’t the best but after making a few changes in the setup menu wow. Would recommend all day long. Sound quality is fine for a normal sized lounge no need for a sound bar unless your a sound buff.

The picture quality is amazing from sd right up to hdr. The out the box first time use set up was very easy. There was one product update after first use to fit in with the new data laws, but it downloaded it and updated itself very quickly. I would recommend this tv to anyone thinking of buying a new tv.

Great tv exactly what it says perfect for the price you ain’t getting better for the price.

Id love to say it’s a brill but sadly due to the useless packaging and delivery it arrived with a screen in 1000 pieces all i can say is it’s a lovely finish and size etc looked well made and i don’t want to down play the make because of the delivery. Unless they start to sort out their packaging. I had a tiny dog jacket delivered in a huge box and a huge tv delivered with no support or proper packaging just a box no bubble wrap etc etc. So sadly i can’t review this other than the physical construction which looked excellent. Sadly let down by amazon delivery company.

But it camed with the screen broken. Tomorrow is gonna come a new one. I hope this time is everything fine.

We bought this telly on a prime deal for around £370 and boy was it worth it. I had seen a similar sized telly in john lewis for around £500 and the picture of the 4k videos on this telly are just as good and the tv is packed full of great features with direct links to youtube and free view play. I don’t think you will find another 50 inch 4k tv as good as this for the money.

After lots of research and reading of reviews, i decided to plump for this 50inch 4k hdr hisense tv. One of the persuading factors was the option of connecting your satellite dish also. (great of your freeview reception isn’t perfect). Arrived on delivery day, by dpd, no problems there with text updates. Easy to set up, connects to your wifi or via a lan connection if you prefer. The set up is straightforward and easy to do. It prompted me that there was a firmware update available so i performed this so it’s got the latest (not sure what the differences are)the thing i really like is having the 4 remote buttons to access amazon prime tv, youtube, netflix and freeplay for a single press – no messing. You can add multiple accounts on youtube. Great for us so my daughter can access all her content without messing with ours.

Easy to set up and very good picture quality for the price paid.

For the price i really can’t grumble. The picture quality is great for watching shows and playing games on my xbox one. The colours and the audio could be better but perfectly fine for what you’re paying. I’d 100% recommend this product.

Very pleased with everything sound pic quality etc. Here are the specifications for the Hisense H50A6200UK 50 Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Hisense 4K HDR Smart TV allow you to play HDR content from compatible source components, it also offers darker blacks, brighter whites and a better contrast.
  • Hisense Smart allows you to connect to a world of on-demand entertainment through built-in apps such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, BBC iPlayer and an integrated web browser.
  • Single sound bar provides higher sound quality compared to your TV
  • Dialogue mode to make every word and detail stand out

The wifi module in this is rubbish, like i’ve got it 5m from my access point and it disconnects regularly. Luckily ive got a ethernet port next to it and it works great when hard wired. I would avoid this if you’re planning to use the ‘smart’ features all the time. It’s a great panel but they’ve clearly skimped on the cpu. But £400 for a 4k hdr screen this good is hard to argue with.

I bought mine from very,the picture quality is excellent until fast paced movements and then it distorts,i agree with the review by the other customer saying the same as me. No set up instructions,won t load freeview play- bbc iplayer ect,this tv is frustrating.

Bought this as last years hisense model had been recommended in a well known computer magazine albeit with a few qualities being found to be mundane by them. Setup is not such as breeze as i was led to believe, as follows. The product didn’t work properly out of the box, the remote ‘jumped around’ on the screen for example. Well, the secret is to leave tv connected for a couple of hours or so to warm itself up initially. The pack had been delivered on a winters day after all. This then corrected all the malfunctioning problems but only after ‘rebooting’ the tv. The initial screen quality is shocking if you are connecting to a traditional digital ariel using the usual freeview services. On remote, go into settings (see manual if you don’t know where this is)2.

Good tv overall, nice looking, sadly it arrived damaged completely and i have requested a refund and hopefully this will be done soon.

But why was i charged £383. When it was advertised, and still is priced at £379.

Brilliant tv plug and play,the only thing i didn’t like is the feet are too far apart it would not fit a one meter long tv table so i bought the single stand.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Brilliant TV
  • Love my TV!
  • Great if it suits your use case

The only problem is that it drops from the wi-fi every time i turn it off and on again. Have tried pairing it and still drops. Just have a note with the password somewhere close.

Good tele, picture great, sound is great, internet connection sometimes drops out.

Easy to install, great picture and sound.

Stunning 4k tv, easy set up, works well. Hisense is a good brand for a little bit cheaper price wise but right up there with quality. The remote is great with the extra netflix and freeplay buttons.

Every bit as good as my samsung, which was nearly twice the price.

LG Electronics LG 49SK8000PLB 49-Inch Super UHD 4K HDR Premium Smart LED TV : Great value for money and ticked all the boxes!

Picture quality really good. Replace a panasonic biers tv which was good but this is better. Good colours and uhd is excellent. Built in google assistant and alexa nice additions.

Same length that tvyou need a 1. Will be ok if you wall hung. The remote center wheel a bit to smallfeels naf.

I needed a quality second tv for our games/kids room. The tv gets used for xbox one and a number of films e. My main tv is a lg 960 oled which is nothing short of stunning. Being a second tv, i didn’t have the budget for another oled so looked at alternatives. After reading a number of reviews this tv ticked all of the boxes, game mode has a very low lag, magic remote, same tech as used in the oleds for black, the fantastic lg webos, dolby atmos, and vision. My only concerns were that a number of people have commented on dark scenes, the ips/led shining through to almost a gray, i believe linus tech tips also covered this tv in one of their shows but did put it next to a premium top end oled (over 3k)i’ve received it and very impressed. I’m impressed with the blacks, they look really good and not to much backlight bleed. The standard out of the box picture settings are on the eco side, so will need playing around with but very impressed considering owning an oled.

I bought this tv to replace a 2015 sony uhd tv. The tv is fantastic with so many features. Nothing to criticise only praise for a wonderful responsive tv with a brilliant picture.

Lg, does what it says, life’s good, excellent tv.

Fantastic deal for this product. Amazing picture quality, sound through arc allows for easy connection to av amp. Delivery was careful and considerate. Took time and helped unpackage and checked the tv thoroughly before allowing me to sign for delivery.

Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.

For the price and screen size, this must be one of the best buys on the market. Great colour and clarity, good sound and looks great too. I would recumbent this tv to anyone.

Purchased for use with xbox one s 4k, and very pleased with result. Ticked all the compatibility needs of xbox 4k and dolby atmos was picked up by apple tv 4k too. Considering the current discount (52%) it’s a no brainer.

A which best buy, and it deserves to be too. The size is perfect for our room, picture quality, colour and sound superb, although i do use a sound bar when watching movies. I’m an amazon prime member and this works well. Remote control is very effective, although i’ve yet to use the voice control. All in all a superb tv from lg.

Alpha 7 processor; enhanced picture processing technology is plugged straight into LG super UHD hardware thanks to the α7 TV processor

I originally bought the hisense h55u7auk 55-inch 4k ultra hd, which i returned within 24 hours because the picture quality was extremely poor. I decided to spend the extra £200 on this lg model and boy i am glad i did. The picture quality straight out of the box is excellent and requires very little adjusting to achieve the optimal settings. Sound is also very good, even without a sound bar. The magic remote is also a nice touch. The voice recognition and mouse like pointer that appear on the screen makes the tv even easier to use. Extremely easy to set up, the tv goes through everything step by step and helps you all the way. Overall excellent tv, i would definitely highly recommend.

For the money this tv is pretty good. Obviously you get what you pay. No complaints about this one except very soon after i purchased it, the price dropped by more than £100. Nice and lightweight, making it easily possible to hang on a wall using the correct appropriate wall mount (see pictures). Love the smart remote (brilliant shape, size and weight). It’s also very thin which is a major factor in choosing tbis particular one. My only regret is i wish i bought th 55 inch.

This tv is incredible, great price, fantastic all round.

Better than expected and installed very easily.

I bought this in amazon’s january sale and, i must say, it’s a real bargain. Once i got the picture quality and the sound quality settings, to my liking, it was such an improvement on my old lg plasma. One thing i was thankful for was the set-up instruction leaflet. At first i thought, “hmm, there’s not much here. ” what there was, turned out to be concise and too the point. Connection to my panasonic blu-ray/recorder and my yamaha sound bar was much easier than i, first, thought it would be. Two minor quibbles – i would have preferred a swivel stand. To get the best view, i have to sit square-on to the screen. As i spend a lot of my time on the computer, on the other side of the room, the picture quality loses a lot.

Use it only for gaming, netflix and amazon only (don’t watch terrestrial tv on it). Good sound and picture quality.

Excellent purchase delivered overnight.

High quality and powerful speaker system.

I like lg tvs for the webos and the magic remote but this tv has got terrible light bleeding. The whole dark area around bright scenes illuminates and the picture looks really bad. On the normal scenes the picture quality is good but i mostly watch tv at night after the dinner and i noticed this thing. None of the suggested settings could get rid of this problem. I have another 3d 4k lg tv and this back-light bleeding didn’t happen (actually that has better image quality than this and it’s been bought 3 years ago.

Excellent television set with most of the features you could wish for except there’s no headphone socket. My hearing is not good so i am unable to set the treble tone high enough.

Very good, sound not brilliant but remote sound bar did the trick.

Just what i expected from lg a good quality tv.

Good picture quality sound not to good price ok but had one day price had dropped by 100 pounds could have bought a sound bar with the 100 pounds i paid extra for the tv.

Nothing to dislike, easy to tune in. Quality picture is very good.

Sony 43 Inch 4K HDR Ultra HD Smart TV – Awesome TV

Pictures of really good but the sound quality was terrible also you had to turn telly on and off every time you want to connect to youtube which was really annoying i bought the lg 43″ around the same time it was nearly half the price and much more easy to use and the sound quality amazing so i sent my sony bravia back and will buy another lg.

Ok, so parents have got a samsung smart tv, that is a true android tv. That lets them install stuff from google play store and basically change all the apps on the tv. This sony offering is based on linux, which means as far as i can tell, that the apps that are installed won’t really change (apart from updates). Watch out for pricing too, as the 43″ and the 49″ were the same price when i ordered it, and at around 399 for the 49″ version i’m really happy with the quality and the price. The sound isn’t really that great, and be careful if you have more than 3 hdmi devices to attach to it (only has 3 hdmi ports. – and a soundbar could easily take one of these. )however, for what i needed, it was perfect, as i already have an nvidia shield to give me plex, kodi, and all the other stuff, plus an xbox for gaming, so it’s basically just a big old 49″ screen that i wanted, and in that case it’s great. Picture looks really clear (top tip – search on netflix for 4k and take a look at the first few titles to show you what your tv can do), sound is ok i suppose, but i’m still waiting on a soundbar, and i’d recommend getting an external hard drive so you can record directly from the tv onto the drive (if you don’t already have plex or something similar to do this for you). All in all, a fairly basic tv, with a decent tuner, a couple of good apps (netflix, youtube, etc), but if you want a standalone version and won’t be using something else such as an xbox or similar, i’d plump for something with a little more weight behind it.

The setting up of the tv was very simple.

If you want the best, visit sony.

Features of Sony 43 Inch 4K HDR Ultra HD Smart TV with Freeview Play, Black (2018 Model) with 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Player, Black

I love this tv; superb picture and very light weight. My only concerns (which don;t warrant a downgrade in stars ) are that it only has three hdmi ports, one of which you’ll lose if you want to use a sound bar and also that the cable that comes with the power-pack is only a metre long, which can be a problem in terms of routing wiring from a wall, for example. I remedied the cable issue by buying a longer cable (3m) and the hdmi concern can be resolved with a splitter or perhaps just not having so much connected to the tv in the first instance in terms of sound quality, the speakers in the tv are quite adequate and although i did buy the sound bar, i’m not sure you need it in the first instance. I always try and buy sony audio visual products because i like the quality of the product and this tv does not disappoint.

Beautiful picture – even standard definition images look sharp and bright. Sound could be a shade fuller, and it’s a shame they don’t make something like the swf-br100 for it but it’s a great choice for a smaller room.

I have several sony bravia tvs, but this was my first smart tv. I am very pleased indeed with all the features it provides, u tube,netflix and catch up just to mention a few. I was a little surprised to find the tv itself is very light and flimsy, compared with the others i have, but would recommend purchasing.

4K Ultra HD Resolution –

I have the previous ‘xe’ model in a smaller screen size too. This newer ‘xf’ model adds freeview play and supposedly better hdr. The stand is more attractive too, but otherwise it’s pretty much identical, with super-slim bezels and a subtle yet classy design. I can’t tell much difference in hdr performance, even on sony’s special 4k test videos on youtube. It looks pretty good to me, but not remarkable. But this isn’t a high-end television. It’s actually amazing value for what you get. I have always been delighted with the picture of my xe and i’m equally delighted with this one. Inevitably this tv is most impressive when you watch 4k hdr stuff. The 49-inch screen size really adds impact when you watch a 4k film on netflix.

Got this on an amazon black friday sale and so far we’re very impressed with the sound and superb picture quality. No distoyfor such a big screen even if you sit close to it. That’s kind of remarkable really. If it stays this way i’d say we got a great deal.

I’ve had this tv a month now and so far so good. The picture on amazon prime 4k is amazing. The sound on the tv is ok, but i use my av receiver and speakers for much better sound quality. Or i would recommend a soundbar. For the price this is a quality 4k tv.

The sony kd49xf7002bu 49 inch 4k hdr ultra hd smart tv with freeview playrating: 4. 5our 6-year-old samsung 36″ 720p/1080i flat screen just died on us last week, so getting this sony kd49xf7002bu 49 inch 4k hdr ultra hd smart tv with freeview play is a major step on the evolutionary pathway. The sony kd49xf7002bu tv is an impressive piece of kit. Connecting to our nas (synology diskstation) was just a question of plugging in a network cable. The result is wonderful and makes it easy for watching films, with 1080p films upscaling looking good too. Apart from setting up the inbuilt tuner, we have also connected our sky plus, where standard sd sky tv looks good, the resulting sky hd looks very good and ps3 works well. The main thing to bear in mind is to allow the tv’s inbuilt tuner to download digital terrestrial tv, otherwise, the setup process does not complete well. We have not tried the usb recording option yet, but it is a very good plus point. If you are going to wall mount this unit, best to do some research for the best bracket. In our case, we bought the invision® ultra strong tv wall bracket mount – for 37 – 70 inch led lcd plasma & curved screens.

Had it on offer for £489can’t fault it,picture is greatvery fast software, no delay.

I bought this tv during the bank holiday sale, and all i can say is it was a bargain. The tv is easy to setup, and comes with a variety of apps. I mainly use the tv to watch movies, tv shows and for gaming (ps4), which all look incredible. I’d highly recommend this tv.

HDR streaming and gaming –

I’m running it with sky w uhd and it’s perfect.

Have been dealing with my mother in law’s panasonic tv. Like the previous tv i had both have impenetrable and overly ridiculous complicated interfaces. This sony tv blows them away on every level. Picture quality, sound and the user interface. My husband is a tv camera man and he is very impressed with the picture quality. Yes you can get better but my goodness you would have to pay a great deal more. What he is less impressed with, and that is not the fault of sony, is what is available when it comes to 4k programmes. He also rates the sound which he thinks is very good. It is really easy to set up. Like the design of it and the way the legs hide the wires.

They don’t make things to last these days but my oils sony is 12 years old and still perfect, i hope this one is as good?.

Bought by my daughter so she unable to comment.

Ultimate 4K HDR viewing experience with HDR10 and Dolby Vision* support for ground-breaking detail, colour and brightness.

Great looking tv, good size, sound not always what i would expect, tv guide and recording system have a mind if their own.

Got this for a great price at £395, happy it with so far, picture quality is good, especially when watching hdr programs thorough netflix, although not a true smart tv, does not have android, don’t let that put you off, i’m using amazon fire stick, apple tv.

Amazing fabulous tv – lightweight and picture so clear.

Power Consumption at standby mode is 0.4 watts and the power consumption at networked standby mode is 1.0 watts

Great tv, i use it mostly for netflix and it works like a charm.

Bargain price on black friday.

Absolutely delighted with this tv – picture quality is awesome. Lots of very good features all easily accessible. Only one niggle – the orientation of the vesa mounting holes means i had to buy an adapter plate for my existing vesa wall mount and now the tv sits quite a bit higher on the wall.

Good sound and clear picture as i had expected.

Would highly recommend buying this tv.

Good tv with plenty of features. There is no lag in the remote as mentioned in other reviews i have read. Easy to set up out of the box. Recommends 2 people but managed on my own. My only gripe would be the audio which sounds poor on most of the available settings that are pre loaded. Maybe i will try adjusting those to see if it improves. All in all a great bit of kit for £474.

4K HDR – Immerse yourself in the brilliance of 4K HDR –

Took delivery of this a few days ago. The picture quality is absolutley stunning and the sound quality is good once set up correctly. The design is top notch as you would expect from sony and i can’t fault the android system – i’ve had no speed issues as some have mentioned. What is really frustrating is the limitations of the inbuilt youview system. You have a choice of either disabling youview and being able to record channels onto hdd, but not being able to access itv player or all 4. Or enabling youview and being able to access them, but losing the ability to recordit seems like a major oversight/design flaw, and is not mentioned anywhere before you buy. Except in online support forums which you would only find when searching for the problem specificallyoverall a great tv, just not without annoying issues.

Picture is excellent, super immersive with a soundbar. Android can be laggy and tv has suddenly switched off during a show twice now in a month of use. Hopefully teething issues to be fixed with updates.

I’m not really an expert on image quality and tvs but moving from my old 32″ samsung to this has definitely felt like an upgrade in every aspect. The 4k hdr content i’ve watched on this tv looks crisp, vivid and overall spot-on. Sound is alright but don’t expect anything amazing from a built-in tv speaker. Pleasantly impressed by the thin bezel and how thin the tv is. The only downside is that the menu navigation is a bit sluggish on the default settings. I’m a big fan of android tvs but their settings out-of-the-box can be a bit too much so tv settings required some tweaking. Once this was done though, browsing through the tv menus is snappy and comfortable. Perhaps the only not so great aspect is the built-in chromecast. Sometimes it doesn’t stream content correctly and it’s not discoverable by other devices in my home network. But 90% of the time it works just fine.

Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.

Fantastic tv, easy to set up, works well with my other sony devices. Only downside is the android operating system is a bit clunky at times but barely use that really as i have virgin tv etc. Great bit of kit and looks great in out living room.

Purchased in black friday sale for great value and the picture and sound quality is excellent and very good service from the delivery team with two people delivering it item ensuring it was handled carefully.

Great picture quality,but be aware freesat is not built in and freeview only works with a digital ariel. Built in speakers are ok,but only a 2yr guarantee here on amazon as opposed to 5 from john lewis at same price.

4K X-Reality PRO – Every detail re-imagined –

We like the bravia but not been able to sync with existing sound bar / sub and need two remote for volumes which is annoying.

This sony bravia is exactly what i want in a smart tv and it provides a great number of interesting movies. I am still finding new things it has.

Replaced a old sony bravia full hd tv for this one and the pciture is amazing with 4k and hdr, great for gaming a must have.

Ultimate 4K HDR viewing experience with HDR10 and Dolby Vision* support for ground-breaking detail, colour and brightness.

When the tv arrived it was damaged in transit. Courier arrived to pick it up and a replacement arrived to ireland within 2days. I must say the costomer service was top class. This is a great all round 4 k uhd tv. Not for the sports enthusiast motion a bit blurry. Other than that general tv shows and hd movies look fab. It also comes with a 5 year warranty. It was sold by ask direct and fulfilled by amazon. I would highly recommend them for your next tv. A happy irish coustomer is all i can say.

We purchased this as our main living room tv after spending a long time reviewing what is on the market and the different costs. Having read reviews stating the picture on this model is not as good as other higher models sony have released, i was slightly put off but went with the purchase due to the significantly higher costs for the next models up and i’m so very glad i did. The quality of picture is absolutely great and i would recommend it to those looking for their main tv. Slight issues i’ve had is when using with alexa to turn the tv on. To change the volume, turn off works fine, just on. Saying that, i don’t know if the problem lies with alexa, the tv or my wifi. I didn’t purchase a sound bar and the sound quality is more than good enough for regular viewing. If you’re like me and are considering paying out more for the next models up, i’d suggest save your money and go with this tv. It is a very well equipped machine in sonys mid range.

I’m a sucker for sony since 2011and this hasn’t disappointed. The picture quality is sharp and the sound very decent. The added voice remote control is really handy especially for a busy mum. It is definitely pricey but having tried others i much prefer the sony bravia android.

Great tv, lovely picture, plenty of settings, very pleased with it, only problem it seems to take a while to respond to commands sometimes, fantastic tv though.

Broad range of video and music content support, including Dolby Atmos and DTS: X soundtracks, DSD, FLAC, MP3

The first tv was damaged in shipment. The second one worked for three days before the picture went out. The third and current tv seems to be working fine so far. It has a great picture quality with decent sound but could have even better sound with a sony sound bar. This tv is very “state of the art” high tech tv. It really has it all and it is truly great when it works. I might have had a lemon the first time because so far this last tv is working well – i have no complaints with it. Crossing my fingers that it stays that way.

Clear sound and fab picture with easy to use handset providing loads of options.

Fantastic all round tv, i have a nvidia shield android box and amp plugged into it and it runs great. The only apps that i use on the tv are bbc iplayer, itv hub and all4 and they run great. I stream a lot though my nvidia shield onto this tv and the picture quality is incredible. I bought a 4k av receiver to go with it and i have been watching football, boxing, snooker and films on it and it handles it perfectly, don’t know why people say it goes pixelated because i haven’t had any problems.

Couldn’t find anything to fault this tv.

Thanks to one of amazon’s many amazing offers, i managed to upgrade my 10 year model of sony bravia to this fabulous tv. The quality of picture & sound is amazing and it was easy to set up even for a technophobe like me. I like the built-in hub too, so much for so good a price.

Having had a sony bravia for several years, it was time for an upgrade and this tv is just that. Moving from a 37″ to a 43″ isn’t a quantum leap but the picture quality difference is very noticeable the uhdtv is very clear and the colours are vibrant. The speakers aren’t brilliant but, as i always intended to connect the tv to a sony sound system, that was never an issue and it sounds great. The remote is easy to use and the smart features work well after connecting to my wifi. All in all i am well satisfied with my sony tv.

Philips 43PUS6523/12 43-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV – Well worth the price.

Freeview hd channels look stunning on this tv and my playstation games have lot’s more detail, the downside at least for me was that ‘normal’ channels look particularly poor, there seems to be fringing on the edges of everything and everyone as though it’s been over processed. I have altered the settings and still, non hd channels look worse quality than on my old tv. I cannot say 100% that it may be improved by more fiddling about with the settings but as i rarely actually watch tv i’m not too fussed. Tv was extremely easy to set up and having the catch up internet channels right there is excellent. Very much worth the money on the budget end of 4k smart tv’s.

Overall, lost a star because of two issues for me. 1) after hanging on the wall, there is no access to the various ports, usb,hdmi etc. 2) every time i switch on the tv, it tells me there are no channels registered and to connect an aerial or cable and register some. I don’t have a tv licence so do t want any channels.

Great picture quality easy to use. I purchased this for my 88 year old father and he is overjoyed with it.

The tv is great quality price, the picture and sound are awesome. Easy to set up so many preinstall apps incluiding prime video. But i put 3 stars because the power cable is missing, i wasn’t on the box.

This television is so much better than my old television the picture is excellent i love it h.

I must admit to having already formed an opinion that this budget tv form their range was going to offer poor results and i was wrong it is pretty good :)i shall however go over the hdmi inputs specs which seem to me are a little strange. 2 only on hdmi1computer inputs on hdmi1 up to 4k uhd 3840×[email protected] hzcomputer inputs on hdmi2/3 up to 4k uhd 3840×[email protected] hzvideo inputs on hdmi1 up to 4k uhd 3840×[email protected] hzvideo inputs on hdmi2/3 up to 4k uhd 3840×[email protected] hzalso not listed on the product spec page is that hdr support is only hdmi2/3 and arc is on hdmi1it does not say which specification the hdmi ports meet. So to get the best picture out of a uhd blu-ray it needs to be on hdmi2/3 but if you are using an a/v amp and want the tv sound on it it has to be on hdmi1 with no hdr and 30hz maximum. I assume the better models offer more flexibility. Anyway, setup was easy and the tv is pretty light weighing only 8. 8kgit does have satellite support but no uk channel lineup but if you pick austria they are in amongst the 800 channels so unless you are a nerd ignore the satellite connection. Tv aerial freeplay support works as expected. Either wifi or wired network connection are available with options for sound style (the speakers point down and are on the bottom). The silver grey colour of the tv clashes a bit with by black tv stand but i can get used to that.

Good tv once on but takes about ten minutes for the screen to turn on.

My first ‘proper’ smart wifi enabled tv. . Gorgeous picture with blu-ray, hd-dvd, dvd and youtube hq videos. Don’t get me wrong – an excellent smart tv for those starting out on a 4k capable tv experience, but not for me. Just watch out for the ridiculously small buttons on the remote (which has a curved back, impossible for picking up when relaxing and needing to wake up sufficiently to pick up and aim the damned thing) and the confusing menus for someone who has spent over a decade with panasonic gear. I now have the panasonic equivalent and peace is restored albeit with a slightly inferior picture (but not by much). A flawed miracle that may suit others (sent back).

Arrived 16hrs after delivery, not on prime just standard free delivery. The hardest thing about the set up was opening the boxit took me five minutes to set up wifi, hdmi input devices and xbox connection. Looks and sounds great so far, of course it’s only the first day of use but, wow.

I would have gone 5 stars if i didn’t have the issues with the tv installation. When i ran the setup everything went ok until connection to the server to install the smart features. It didn’t work through the setup. It took me a while to figure out. I used the phillips support site to download and install from usb to correct version of software. But, until that i’ve been trying to reinstall the tv multiple times.

I have had this tv for a couple of days now and so far i’m pretty impressed. Considering the price it’s not bad at all. The only thing i have found is the sound quality is pretty poor but again considering the price i can’t grumble too much. This was rectified easily by adding a sound bar. The connections on the back of the tv are at an awkward angle so elderly purchasers may need some assistance. The tv is very easy to install and didn’t take long at all. All in all it’s a great tv for the price.

For the price this is a really excellent tv, particularly the sound for a flat screen tv. We have a sony costing four times as much as this in the living room, with much inferior sound from its built in speakers, so had to add speakers to make it ok. I assumed i would have to get speakers or sound bar for the philips, but the sound is actually really very acceptable, so shan’t bother. Picture quality is fine too, although best to fiddle about with the settings to get something better than the over-sharpened over-saturated out of the box settings. Very happy with this: a steal at the price.

I decided to upgrade my tv from a normal one to a smart one. I chose this one because it had the amazon prime app built in. After getting it set-up i was amazed as to how well the nfl looked on it.

I don’t dislike it it annoying because as you watching the screen decides to switch off why.

The tv arrived without a power cable, which was extremely frustrating. The tv itself is good value for money, although it will need a sound bar or speakers i suspect as the volume doesn’t go very high.

I have just upgraded from my 39′ panasonic 1080p tv. The picture quality is superb- the screen is bright and colourful but also has great organic looking blacks. Great bass and doesn’t buzz on the high end. My only issue is that the interface can be sluggish at times but as i don’t use the smart features all of the time, this isn’t really an issue.

Sound is so much better than other smart tv’s i have bought recently.

Great picture quality and contrast. This tv is on 24/7 in our office and it works great even when exposed to sun light.

Easy to set up and get online, great picture and sound quality. For the price it is a real bargain, best £300 i’ve ever spent.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Trusted Name, brilliant product.
  • A Lot Better Than I Imaged It Would Be (But Funny Specs On HDMI Inputs)
  • Surprisingly good sound, excellent value

Having bought four different makes of flat screen tv sets over the last ten years, i can say this latest phillips 55 inch ultra hd flat screen bought off amazon is truly a great buy. It arrived several days early, and because i am infirm, my adult son wired it up and said it was simple, and all you have to do is read the instructions if you must, but the tv does most of the ‘tuning’ itself. Apart from making sure the power is on and you are hooked up either by cable or wireless to your wi-fi (i. Skybox or bt box or another provider) simply update the ‘apps’ that operate the set. This is done on screen with the click on the remote control. In five minutes all was working beautifully, including youtube and netflix and loads of others. The picture is superb and sharp in focus and colours are natural. The sound is good too, although we have rigged up our samsung sound system to enhance the new set further.

Btw the tv doesnt android but it has some apps already installed like netflix and youtube.

Wasn’t sure given the price what this would be like but it’s excellent quality very pleased , though maybe should have gone for a bit less than 50 inch screen haha.

I bought this 65-in tv for my xbox and i am really happy with it.

This really is a fantastic tv especially for the price that i bought it for from amazon. Very easy to set up and use. Terrific picture and i have to say the sound considering the width of the tv is impressive. If your thinking about buying one, do it. I’m very happy with this uhd tv. Obviously not had it too long to comment on reliability, but great buy and would buy again.

First time i recived a damaged tv with a blue line on the left of the screen,but the repleace of the tv was verry quick and the second tv it working verry good the quality of the image it s awesom,the sound can be better but at this priece it the best 4k tv you can get.

Love the tv but disappointing that at the moment for some weird reason it won’t tune any bbc channels. All my other tv’s can tune them from the same aeriel. Might return for a replacement if it doesn’t sort itself out.

Bought from amazon warehouse. Couldn’t see any issues with it. 55inch looks great on my wall. Sound and picture quality is awesome.

Great quality 50 inch smart tv; philips brand for sure a lot better brand compared to heinse such wraps properly & protected the screen in the box, screen a lot better quality, stronger but light & all the functions a lot better too. Therefore, i can recommend philips brand to anyone wanting 50inch smart tv as great quality & value for your money.

The picture isn’t always great when streaming tv through the internet. For the price paid and the technical specification of the product i would have thought the overall picture quality would be better.

I’m really pleased with the tv i love it.

Sony Bravia KDL50WF663 50 Inch Full HD HDR Smart TV – Great TV

I bought this tv for my mums christmas present, she was very happy.

Remote feels cheap, some buttons are quite small and no positive feedback, so you don’t know you’ve pressed them. Picture quality is great, reasonably easy to use, applications good but still no now tv app fir android. Note there are only 2x hdmi ports, missed when i purchased as i need 3x shame as its a good tv otherwise.

Very happy with all aspect of this television.

The kdl43wf663 was first released in october 2016 and unless this 2018 model has undergone any upgrades it has therefore been around for nearly two years so you can’t expect it to be bristling with the latest high-tech gadgetry. And while it generally feels as if it has been ‘built to a price’, it’s still pretty good and as this is my first (semi) smart tv it’s actually a lot more up-to-date than my other tv, a 10-year old 46′ panasonic plasma. This sony tv is surprisingly light at 8. 2kg so it’s very easy to carry around from room to room, something i found myself having to do actually because of network connection problems. I found that i had to set it up in the same room as the sky q box and then move it, a slight inconvenience but not a big deal. The remote control feels cheap but it has two unusual buttons on it: youtube and netflix. This is what makes this tv an advance on most decade-old models that were just televisions and nothing else. I’ve only really used the youtube app so far and it works fine, making this a sort of cross between a tv and a huge laptop. The other apps are bbc iplayer, demand5, uktv play, dw (die welt, i think), stv, vewd app store (so you can add additional apps), photo sharing plus, amazon prime video, itv, bbc news, yupp tv, meteo news, freeview play, photo frame mode, rakuten tv, all 4, bbc sport, arte, youtube kids, berliner philharmoniker and a browser. Picture quality is okay, no complaints, sound quality about average although i’m a bit spoilt in that department as our main tv is hooked up to a devialet soundbar so the sound is far better with that.

Very pleased with quick delivery. Set looked brand new when package was opened. Handy ability to catch-up on a program from the start half way through. Tedious to set up various smart apps. Such as iplayer, 5on demand you tube etc. Regarding durability- have only had the tv for 2 months, so unable to judge, but past sony equipment has never broken down before being discarder (12-15 years+).

Always had sony bravia tv’s and they have always impressed me with the overall quality and durability, a 36 inch one i bought 10 years ago is still working well in a spare bedroom. This latest addition was easy to set up and the picture quality is great. It also works well with our old sony sound bar so the sound is also great. Best of all this new 43 inch tv takes up less room than the old 40 inch due to the slim bezel. All in all i don’t think i could have bought better for the price i paid.

Very nice tv, it could do with that turns to the angle you want rather having to lift it.

The sony abravia kdl43wf663 43 inch full hd smart tv with freeview play in black is a very striking looking tv,the black wide screen is complemented by two silver legs at the front black at the back. I find the hd really striking particularly commercials for food it’s almost real and i find the sound so clear,you get a variety of freeview. Channels ,i seem to have a lot more channels than my previous freeview tv. As always when you update your technology things change ,i need to purchase some cables to watch my dvd player as this modem tv doesn’t have any scart fittings but that’s not a major issue,getting a friend shortly to connect the internet to the television. Great tv and deserves five stars frim this reviewer.

This tv is exactly as stated in the headline. It’s a perfectly serviceable 1080p high definition tv. Mine is wall mounted, so i can’t comment on the stand. There are a few niggles, particularly of you are more technically minded. Installation – i had it connected to an standard aerial and it found most of the standard digital channels on freeview they play perfectly well. I had an ethernet cable cable connecting it to a powerlan plug which connected to the internet and it upgraded perfectly – i haven’t connected it via wifi as i don’t need to. Audio – the built in speakers are fine for where/how i use it. My tv is in a room where i have lots of exercise equipment, so it’s used whilst i’m on and elliptical trainer/rowing machine/doing body weight exercises. . The quality if fine for that. You could improve it quite a bit by fitting a soundbar, but you would have to use either the headphone socket or an optical cable, as this tv doesn’t have bluetooth capability. Picture quality – it’s okay, not stunning but perfectly watchable. Hd channels look pretty good, sd channels are watchable.

I set up this tv next to my now-pushing-10-years-old-and-recently-gone-to-the-big-scrapheap-in-the-sky sharp aquos 46′. It was a non-led, non-smart tv (but cost significantly more than the bravia 43′ when i bought it in 2008) which was connected to a playstation 3 (my blu-ray & netflix machine) and a sky+ hd box. I’ve edited this review for brevity, but the essential points remain – i had a lot of trouble (about 3 hours) getting the sony bravia set up properly. However, while i was fiddling with it, i tried plugging in an external usb hard disk with some mp4 media on it, and that worked fine. I watched some digital/freeview sdtv with an expectedly poor, sd-quality picture, and that worked fine too. I watched some sky and found the picture very over-saturated, and we’ll get back to that later as second, severe flaw in this tv. On first impressions, the bravia is ridiculously light (the box says 12kg, so the tv is probably about 11kg). The old aquos weighed a ton while i was easily able to lift the bravia inside its box and carry it upstairs (while wearing my backpack from work at the same time. Physical setup is a breeze as a result – 4 philips screws affix two feet, plug in the power and any source boxes, and you’re done.

Fantastic item, great value for money.

Very clever machine, finding new functions all the time.

Sony bravia has been my first choice for many years and this does not disappoint. Great sound, vision and built in extras. Here are the specifications for the Sony Bravia KDL50WF663 50 Inch Full HD HDR Smart TV:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • HDR – Brilliant highlights, beautiful textures – HDR preserves the detail in the brightest and darkest scenes found in PS4 games and Netflix titles, for a more dynamic and realistic picture.
  • X-Reality PRO upscaling engine – Rediscover every detail – X-Reality PRO up-scales and refines the pixels on screen for reduced noise and enhanced clarity
  • Powerful surround sound thanks to S-Force front surround and bass reflex unit
  • Simple connectivity: one easy HDMI connection to TV and instant music listening from your mobile device via Bluetooth or USB

Very pleased with product good value.

Immense and rather splendid. You can sit back and just be overwhelmed by the sheer wonder of this tv. Because of its epic size you may find it tricky to source a stand or tv unit to hold it. This ain’t no tv for shy retiring folk. But watching a movie, an epic movie like a star wars or anything with large battle scenes then the sheer scale brings a tear to the eye. The sound and picture quality are fantastic. Tricky to manhandle this behemoth. Everything hooked up though. If you buy this bad boy then prepare to be awed by its utter presence.

This 43′ sony is to replace a 32′ sony so i can compare notes. I did some research and for normal tv viewing 1080 seems to be better than 4k as upscaling from sd to 4k isn’t that clever apparently. There are a few annoying features about this 2018 model i don’t like. It isn’t android based so why the lag in many of the remote features. The epg isn’t as instant as the 32′ was with a few seconds delay after pressing the green next page button. Also teletext is slower, noticeably populating one line at a time. The most glaring and annoying change is the epg which no longer has the top information panel. Yes you see more channels but you need to exit the list display to see each programs details. They’ve also removed the very useful schedule viewing feature that i used that a lot.

Easy set up what can i say wonderful sony.

Sony KD49XF7003 49-Inch 4K HDR Ultra HD Smart TV – The TV has no faults

Nice clear big screen with good picture quality. Very happy with my purchase.

Third sony tv in a row all been good.

The colours are beautiful and the picture quality is sharpthe 4k uhd really shows and i could sit and watch tv all dayplaying the ps4 pro on it is the highlight of my daythe sound quality on the tv is not very good just like any other slim smart tv but it’s nothing a good sound bar can’t fix. All in all, a gorgeous and amazing tv.

There are different sized screens available with this tv to suit individual needs. This is the 55 inch screen version. This is a decent 4k ultra high definition tv which produces clear picture and video playback. This sony tv has a 4k x-reality pro engine which up scales non-4k content and motionflow xr which ensures even the fastest action is clear. The sound quality is good for small compact built in speakers but for the sound enthusiast a external sound bar may be required. The smart tv features is good and easy to use but can be slow and sluggish at times. The built-in wi-fi connectivity is good and reliable and i have not encountered any serious problems whilst using it. You can use the smart tv feature to connect you with apps like youtube and netflix. The design and construction is very good, lightweight and slim with a tidy cable management feature. The 4k ultra high definition display is really clear and and this tv screen has four times the number of pixels than average 1080p full hd tvs.

Great looking set with excellent picture quality.

Unnecessarily made very complicated. Also the stand design is not great. Again made very complicated. Picture wise quality is good. Software is lacking behind samsung’s by 10 years.

Motionflow xr 400hz: every image on the screen refreshes at a higher rate than normal for noticeably smoother motion.

Whilst the basic picture quality of this panel is fantastic it is ruined by one fact. I’ve had my fill of sony using this technology as even when turned off it still does it. Meaning i don’t have a choice one way or another. There is little point in offering a menu choice if that is the case. The tv looks good, is easy to set up and delivers a supreme image in 4k gaming and film. But the moment you watch general television in hd (adverts and television films in particular) the juddering images are too off-putting for me to be able to engage for any period of time. I’ve been a sony customer for over 30 years buying a huge variety of products from them. However, unless they sort this motionflow thing out, i will never buy another sony television again.

Philips 55PUS6753/12 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV : This is stunning

Quite a nice tv that has so far looked great. The sound isn’t brilliant but good enough that i won’t be getting a soundbar. My only problem with the tv was that i experienced some flickering while watching hdr content but this seems to have been fixed after updating the tv.

Wps did not work at first so had to input the wpa key, no worries and got online. Streaming is good and through the wifi is very smooth. Let me warn you now that some films are super smooth if you have never seen a hd tv like this, it can take some getting used to. Watch lotr on netflix and you will see what i mean. When it tuned in initially snooker was on bbc hd which was great to fix the colours, they are to vivid imo so i dulled them a bit. The ambilight the nicest surprise. What a great thing to have, i can’t see me going back since it adds another dimension watching films. The interface is a bit clunky but seems like a fair trade off for the price. Managed to stream some movies files via dnla , i used the philips app for that – app isn’t the greatest so have patience. I made put the tv on static ip via the router to help connect all the time.

Edit: i ended up returning this tv because i couldn’t resolve the frame rate issues. So far the replacement unit seems ok. Got this tv in a sale so i’m pretty happy with what i got for the money. There are positives and negatives though. The good:looks nice on the wallambilight actually works really wellpicture quality is good (4k)a lot of tweaks can be madecheapsimple remoteblacks are very impressive for an lcdcolours are almost eye bleedingno lip sync problemsbright enough hdrthe bad:the picture can look bad (sd & hd)menus are convolutedtoo many tweaks can be madeseems to suffer from frame rate issuessoap opera effect on out of the boxso i went ahead and turned off all of the post processing malarkey and turned down the sharpness all the way and that improved the image immensely. I was still suffereing with very choppy frame rate issues though. I use a ps4 pro for all my content and the tv kept suggesting i put it in game mode. I followed its advice and the frame rate problems vanished. The picture can look bad a times when the image isn’t 4k, but i can’t attest to it too much as all the post processing is off on mine to improve the 4k image, it is a 4k tv after all. In summary it’s a good tv for the price, it’s not all singing all dancing and if you accept that then you’ll be happy with what you get.

I did some research, and this was the best i could afford for the quality of tv. First surprise, the lights in the back, really add to the overall watch quality. It is nice and light, and easy to put the stand on the base. The price is fantastic, plus free next day delivery.It is at least 20£ cheaper than other stores, plus free delivery, where other stores offer next day at 30£. No brainer on the purchase from amazon. The setup of the tv, now here i did have a little problem, but i would have thought it was p. I switched on and went through all the options, then tried to press the netflix button but nothing happened. So went to the home screen and again nothing happened. After a few attempts, i saw at the bottom i hadn’t agreed the terms, to press ok.

Features of Philips 55PUS6753/12 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV with HDR Plus, Freeview Play, 3-sided Ambilight and Philips HTL5160B/12 3.1 Streaming-Soundbar

Ultra HD has 4X the resolution of standard Full HD.

This tv gets solid reviews online, albeit there are little, if any, in depth video reviews. I picked it up for under 300 on warehouse deals, but would be willing to pay full price in hindsight having seen it in the flesh. Smart system:the remote gets a bit of stick, but honestly i think it’s really well laid out and easy to navigate. The saphi system has a good user interface and everything you need is a click away. The big positive here, is that no matter what you are on, pressing the “home” button brings up the smart apps overlaid on whatever you’re watching, as opposed to coming out of the app you’re on, or moving you to a completely new screen. I’m yet to try netflix on this set, but going from the performance of youtube and iplayer, i’m sure that will be carried through – there is no issue with the responsiveness of button presses or app loading times. Audio:i used to sell tv’s, and am well aware that nearly all tv’s nowadays need a sound bar otherwise you’re listening to very tinny audio. Again, i was impressed in this department. The sound does have some depth to it that is very rare on a tv, with some separation between voice and music/sound effects, although as always a sound bar will be on most people’s setup. Video:i was literally taken back when i loaded up some youtube content before tweaking the picture settings on this.

The android operating system is a bit flakey does not respond at all sometimes. The remote no longer works have to use the joystick on the back to control the tv, could just be a problem with the software. Picture is good, luckily i am just using it as a monitor no need to use the remote. Very dissapointed with this tv especially since it had such good reviews. Satellite a waste of time as not free sat. I am updating this review as all the problems were down to a faulty remote, contacted philips who asked me to check the remote using my phone camera it proved to be faulty. I received a new remote within a day from philips all is fine now. The flakey software was due to the remote sending spurious signals to the tv.

Purchased on amazon prime day for a £379, the ambilight is great and with a 4k input the screen is impressive, std definition tv on the other hand is terrible and greys look polarised, we stick with hd channels, streaming services and xbox one x and at 1/3 the cost of a top end 4k tv we are happy enough.

After purchasing this tv with no reviews available due to it being only just released, i took a gamble on purchasing this tv. The tv is such a transformation on my old basic he tv, the colours ‘pop out’ on even mormalntv viewing, but once you play a 4k film. That’s when it comes into it’s own. With the added bonus of having the lights on the sides and top at the rear of the tv ot projects the picture to be even bigger than your viewing, it’s adds a nice touch. The tv is of basic smart apps, but i got this for such a steal on prime day that i can’t complain as i stream my 4k films from apps so it was no biggy to me. The sound is a bit of a let down compared to say the higher brands but again adding a sound bar or in my case having a cinema system makes this a needless complaint for myself, but thought i would be honest if you decide to consider purchasing?overall i’m very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend this tv.

The picture and sound quality of this tv is amazing and the ambient light is out of this world. The only downside is that it decided one day that it will no longer be a smart tv. So all apps including netflix and app centre all stopped working even after a reinstall of the tv and reset to factory didn’t help. As of amazon they decided to replace the tv for me. I will see whether the issue will also affect the replacement and update this review.

Other shoppers, if you are looking for an affordable tv that is worth the money, then go for this one. This is our first smart tv and we use it with wifi only ( no tv license ). Our internet connection is pretty basic and whatever we watch on netflix, amazon prime, youtube is delivered in a very good quality. The ambilight feature is a fantastic extra i wasn’t expecting to be this great. The remote control and the software are highly responsive, making the tv smart a piece of cake and the thing is leight and thin enough.

Ambilight 3 sided for a truly immersive viewing experience

Really like this tv, the ambilight is fantastic. 4k, built in apps like amazon and netflix. Also no mains cable in the box, but amazon soon sorted this for me, without having to send the tv back however initial set up was problematic, as had connection issues to philips, had to side load software update. Since then no problems or niggles.

I had a 10 year old song bravia which had an amazing picture and i was waiting to be disappointed but this is an amazing tv for the money. The hue lights are so much fun as well, they really add to the experience, its a real talking point and it makes games and films so immersive. It does need to reconnect to your hue badge every time you switch it on which is super annoying and for some reason the world connection is a bit flakey but wireless has worked fine every time. Maybe that’s a bug that a firmware update could solve.

 i have put off buying a 4k set for so long just because of price. I am so happy that i did or i would not have found this gem of a tv. I have an xbox one x to use with this tv so i did have some things that i needed from it to have and this ticks all the boxes for any current gen xbox oneit is everything i expected, it has everything you would expect from a modern set, nothing missing. The ui is easy and fast, the settings for setup and optimization is vast and deep so it should do exactly what you want it to do. Personally i have never seen so many options. It looks great, sounds great, and ambilight is definatly not a gimmick once you use it, it becomes a new way of watching tv. I have never been more immersed than when using this phillips wicked (3 sided) ambilight product. Update:now i have had this under my control almost non stop since i have had it and have fully setup all my smart tv things, the large amount and versatile settings i must mention are tweaked and the display is beautiful, and works great for tv, netflix or gaming equally. The ambilight has a gaming function to make it more aggressive and faster, rather as the softer options for movies, tv and music.

The Philips Pixel Precise Ultra HD engine optimizes picture quality to deliver smooth, fluid images with incredible detail and depth.

Weve had a 32″ samsung for the last 5-6 years. We decided we wanted a bigger screen and after reading the customer reviews here plumped for this 43″ philips. The picture is so much more vivid without being garish. The blacks are very black, unlike the muddy greys on the samsung. It is easy to set up, easy to operate and the menus are easy to navigateit suffers from the one fault that all flat screens suffer from and thats not very good sound. I have separate speakers for that. If you’re swithering which 43″ to buy, hesitate no longer, get this one. Oh, and did i mention the price.

We are really pleased with this tv and love the ambient lighting and its very easy to set up. One thing i dont like is it if you set a programme timer it automatically turns the tv on from standby at the selected time which can be annoying as i often move between rooms to watch tv and have been alarmed when i suddenly hear this tv on when i’m not in that room.

The only let down with my purchase is, some of the apps like “all4 and bbciplayer wont open?. I went for this make as philips has always been a trusted name. Im pleased with my purchase for the amazing picture, good enough sound for the bedroom. Not so fussed on the ambient light ( glad u are able to turn it off).

I bought this tv on amazon prime day and got a great price. I was a bit wary of buying it as i’m usually not a philips fan but the price was good and decided to give it a try. The first thing i noticed was the size ( lovely big screen ) and secondly how light it was to lift. Once turned on it was very easy to set up and internet connection was so quick and easy. Once i learned how to navigate the settings and finding where everything was , i then went to work on the picture settings to get the best possible viewing experience. I tweaked the settings bit at a time taking in what everything does until i got a vibrant very clear and sharp picture. Next i did the same with the sound settings which has a handy little graphic equalizer to tweak. I now had the picture and sound i hoped to get. I also bought a sound bar and connected that which enhanced the sound , this too connected very quickly via wireless. One thing i can’t find which possibly lets this tv down is bluetooth which is why i took a star off my rating.

Decided to go for this during a black friday sale, i have been looking at oled tv’s but never seemed to want to budget for them especially at the price they are now. I play games and watch films so need a tv that would be suited for both. My main things i looked for with this purchase was screen size, 4k and colour options (hdr etc), motion smoothing and finally no moire. (moire is when something like a striped shirt or chain link fence would cause the screen to look strange and kind of glitchy when fine lines or patterns are displayed)the contrast modes and black levels on this tv are insane, they are as close to oled as i have seen and this is no exaggeration. Obviously, its not oled, so it won’t look like an oled. But going from this to paying for an oled makes little sense to me simply because the black levels are sooo good on this screen. It has a contrast processing mode that you can play about with to get it even darker and more vibrant and not a simple setting such as “high contrast on/off” it has many different levels, and different single adjustments to make. You hardly notice the backlight on the tv when end credits are playing or say for example the netflix logo is shown the screen is as dark as it could possibly be and the netflix logo is very vibrant. It is a seriously good upgrade from my samsung hdtv, that one had poor speakers that distorted with certain pitch sounds, it had a smart tv option but you needed to buy a dongle.

Bought this on prime day, so bought it for a great deal, but after getting it would of paid full price. Pictures so good in quality and the lighting behind the tv really makes movies and games pop.

Anyone looking for more needs to drop more dollar because this baby is mint. If you’re worried about the backlighting, it can be turned off, wife loves it as it draws her imperfect eyesight into the picture i’m not fussed one way or another, but will use it as disco lighting for house parties because it can follow audio. The interface is a bit slow, but who doesn’t use a console or skybox for the majority of their content. Nice to have netflix et-al there at a button press if needs be.

Bought this for my sons bedroom at a black friday price, worth every low cost penny. Good picture, pretty good sound, ambilight is great and plenty of built in apps – all you could need really. Menu is okay but not great for settings etc but not anything to really grumble aboutthe 43 inch size used to be for a main room but it doesn’t look big at all in a bedroom.

The positives:first & foremost a tv should be judged on its picture (& sound) quality and on those two counts you aren’t going to find better for the price. Give this tv a high quality 1080p or 4k source and the results are quite amazing, easily on par with tv’s costing two or three times as much, even the sound, usually atrocious on budget tv’s is very good without a sound bar, far superior to the budget panasonic tv it replaced, so much so that i’ve put on hold a decision to add a sound bar, so that was a pleasant surprise. The ambilight feature is also far more than just a gimmick and really adds to the experience if you position the tv correctly (flat against the wall, ideally mounted on the wall rather than a tv stand). Even the fake ‘hdr’ adds nice depth to the picture, it’s no oled but it’s better than no hdr. The negatives:the user interface and remote control are straight out of budget tv hell. Very slow and clunky, even compared to the ones on my 5yr old panasonic tv, that this replaced. The remote is very cheap feeling, with stiff unresponsive buttons and the fact that the user interface is so s. W in responding to your button presses, you’ll often find the selection you make on screen, lagging two or three button presses behind on the remote, often resulting in you overshooting your desired menu option, meaning you have to keep going back up the menu.

When on hd, this tv is brilliant. Less good on non-hd freeview. Great for prime tv and netflix. Sound ok, but much better when connected to my ‘cinema sound’. Having a bit of a problem on freeview as sound not 100% synchronised with picture. Not sure that the ambilight achieves anything , so would replace this tv without ambilight, given the opportunity. For a 42″ tv, this is very good value.
