Best value 55inch 4k tv this so far this year. I bought the 55inch to watch the european football championship and i’m very very happy. It’s not on display in any london stores so i was a little nervous. But i took the chance and i’m ecstatic. It’s an incredible 2016 uhd 4k tv at a bargain price.
Hiisense h40m3300 – my experience. I’ve been shopping on amazon for years, but never left a review. I had such a positive experience that i felt i had to. I’d been looking at upgrading my tv, on and off for the best part of last 18 months. I was using a 32’samsung hd lcd screen which i bought for £800, ten years ago. The samsung had been perfect, it had free-view but not free-view hd, but was mostly used for sky and gaming with a ps4. To say it was ten years old, it was perfect. The samsung set did me well, it worked flawlessly still, but i wanted a bigger screen, a better picture and something a bit more modern. I wanted a 4k smart tv and kept looking at replacing it with a sony or a samsung, but i couldn’t justify the £500 -£700 price tag, that many of them came with.

Satellite receiver built-in. Ok tv but not in same league as panasonic/samsung. . Please note variations of this tv with different screen sizes and models have been banded together. So your model may not have all the features mentioned by the reviewers. I paid £249 for the 40 inch version so my initial review is based on that price and just playing with it for a few hours. I will update my review once i’ve used it properly. It does have a satellite receiver built in which was a surprise. It appears you can watch free to air astra channels but not with freeview simultaneously. I can only tune to freeview or satellite, not both which is a shame. There is a 4k uhd test channel on astra and the picture is amazing.
Then i came across this amazing tv hisense 4k and to be honest got to. Previously owned a so called hi end tv brand (phillips) as u do when purchasing anything larger than 32′ sized tvs cause let’s be honest u buy brands that u know and have been around for a while. Then i came across this amazing tv hisense 4k and to be honest got to say well impressed with its capability in the the sense that not only do we have the processing formats to view 4k as yet but it does upscale from full hd to a much higher pixlealed viewing experience. Put it this way i had a full led hd phillips which put out 1080p to some or other lower frame picture style. But when i ran my same hdmi cable from my sky + box to this tv it up scaled it to 1920-1080 atoumatically. Well got to say that’s just a start. Just a great tvs and brand and will probably stick with this one for good enjoy and i promise this is just the begging. S don’t let me start with playstation quality.
Great tv at a fantastic price – software could be improved. I bought this for a play room, but am now considering swapping it into the main room to replace the ‘main’ samsung led that cost £1100 just 1. Even on terrestrial hd channels, the picture is just clearer and more vibrant than the 7 series samsung. That may be down to settings, but without getting a calibration specialist in, i can’t make the samsung match the hisense. Even my wife who doesn’t care about these things pointed it out (without prompting). I would add that i always considered the samsung to have a fantastic picture. The good points:great picture qualityvery decent sound for a thin tv. Often such sets have speakers that rattle the set when volumes are loud or bass is deepwireless set up easy and connects to my wd mycloud nas and seems to play most video formats & codecsnarrow unobtrusive bezelplugged in an external portable hdd and the pvr functionality seems to work although i need to do further testingnavigating the menu is responsive most of the timehaven’t noticed any gaming lag yet (even before the update)the not so good points:the update facility is very flaky.
Hisense 55-Inch Widescreen 4K HDR Smart ULED TV with Freeview HD : I’ve had this tv about a week, i bought it for the price and on the strength of the reviews here, and actually they’re right, all of them. My first ever lcd tv was a supermarket cheapo brand and i deeply regretted it. The lg i replaced it with was worth every extra penny, however this actually much betteri have used it to watch netflix (inc 4k), amazon fire tv (inc 4k), raspberry pi (kodi hd/sd), youview box (hd/sd) and the built in tuner. I was completely blown away by the bright,clear picture on all these devices. I also tried gaming on the xbox and the amazon fire tv and there were only hardly noticeable lag issues (in game mode), otherwise its superb. Well, yeah, a bit like the difference between sd to hd, its good but then its something you only notice when you start watching more hd and then go back to sd. At the moment there’s not much 4k so some shows it’s really noticeable, others not so much. The sound is great and plenty loud enough, but it has some extra 3d/sonic effects which can sound weird or make it vibrate, so you might want to turn them off.
