Philips 50PUS6753/12 50-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV – Cheap and cheerful

Excellent tv at a very good price.

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.

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.

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.

Features of Philips 50PUS6753/12 50-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV with HDR Plus, Freeview Play, 3-sided Ambilight and Philips HTL5160B/12 3.1 Streaming-Soundbar

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.

Since ambilight came out years ago i always thought it was gimmick, but i’ve been so surprised by how good it is. You can of course turn if off if you don’t like it, but i often watch telly with the lights off and i think ambilight comes into it’s own here. Genuinely feel like it is reducing eye strain, but frankly i don’t really care, just really like the way it extends the essence of the picture. The sound has taken a pounding from many reviewers, but i was very pleasantly surprised. I’ve not listened to a tvs speakers at home in years, preferring to run audio through either a 5. Since the smart features are actually pretty good on this, and i was connected via the wrong hdmi port for arc (audio return channel), i found myself checking out the built in speakers. I didn’t buy this for smart features (i normally use a 4th gen apple tv since they allowed prime video), nor for it’s sound, but have been surprised by both. I find myself using both, to the extent where i decided by a new entry level 4k 7.

It’s a 4k tv with hdr plus, it will display movies in 4k with hdr just fine, but for xbox one x gaming, you’ll only get the 4k, not the hdr which is a shame. However it was a reasonable price, i paid £329 in the black friday deals. There are more expensive models that would do have hdr in gaming. Where this tv comes into its own when you’ve got the philips hue lighting, which i have some. Set up an entertainment zone and it really does feel like you’ve been sucked into the action. If you just want a 4k tv, you could probably get better, if you’ve invested in the philips hue lighting system, don’t by anything elsealso paired it with a new amazon 4k fire stick, had issues with that and 4k content, but that was due to the settings on that, not on the tv.

Product information

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

Absolutely amazing tv for the price i paid (£379 black friday deal) coupled with the philips ambilight feature you won’t be disappointed as long as you are prepared to tweak the picture settingsso i had to do a little research online to find the best settings for picture quality as the standard settings do not do the tv justice. I found settings not for this tv but a similar philips tv and used this as a basis then played around further until i was satisfied. I can’t share the website but it’s for the philips pus6272 on the whathifi website. Also the hdr setting is hidden away until you play hdr content so bear this in mind when adjusting your picture setting, i found that hdr vivid is the best setting for this. Once i tweaked, i was very impressed with the tv. Both for watching content and playing video games one my xbox one. The ambilight feature is truly amazing, booted up planet earth 2 on netflix as i had the uhd membership and was blown away by how well it’s integrated into watching tv content, there is a slight lag but it’s not noticeable. As for sound i cannot comment as i used a sound bar straight away. The remote is ok and has a dedicated netflix button which is useful. The smart tv feature has all the usual apps you need – netflix, prime video, iplayer, all4 itvplayer and 5ondemand.

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.

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.

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.

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.

 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.

Ambilight 3 sided for a truly immersive viewing experience

So, we bought this tv because it is 4k, right size, has the ambi-light feature, and was available at an amazing price. It arrived very well packed and it was easy to install, hardware wise. When we switched it on, well, that’s a different story. It didn’t want to connect to the wi-fi at all, despite us entering the right password. I gave up at some point and just connected it through an ethernet cable. The picture quality is very good, if you struggle for hours to set it. I like that the blacks are proper blacks, not a faded black-grey-like colour. For that, i give it 5 stars. The 4k resolution is amazing and everything looks greatthe sound quality is pretty good, although i always use external speakers as i like to have proper bass, because we listen to a lot of music using the tv.

Delighted i made this impulse purchase, the price was just too good not to get it. Was a bit on edge about the sound, it’s nots the best, my old philips tv sound was way better, but we have a small sitting room so no need for us to purchase a sound bar. But you would need one if you have a large open area. Our old philips telly had the ambilight on both sides, this has it on 3 side, which looks fantastic against the wall. It’s the reason i won’t go with another brand. Once you have it, your hooked. Haven’t used the apps except for netflix, honestly there is a 99. 9% chance we will never ever use them. So can’t give any feedback on that department.

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.

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.

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

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.

It looks like the tv requires a polarised figure 8 mains cable (one side squared), and several reviews mentioned this. Even though the cable included looks like it will not fit, it actually fits if you push it in using a little force (this is from philips official customer service). I was misled by some reviews saying the cable was wrong, it wasn’t. If the cable you received is the same attached in picture, it is the correct one even there is no squared side on it. The tv itself is very good, ambient light is definitely a plus.

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.

Easily send music from phone to speaker with Google Cast

Excellent picture on this tv, and the ambilight really adds a great perspective to films. However only drawback is software, sometimes difficult to actually turn the tv off, and sometimes glitches on apps. I did consider returning because of this, but found regularly turning off at mains seems to alleviate problem, and also anything similar in spec is actually a lot dearer, so great value at the price.

Old samsung broke 46″ led that cost £799 five years ago. I was concerned that i may get an inferior tv but now feel silly as it blows the old one away. I am not yet able to put on the wall as you can see in photo due to thread size in back of tv is smaller than samsung was. All in all my best buy for a number of years. Hard to believe there is a better tv out there for less than £1000. If you haven’t got hdr get it and even better with ambilight. 55″ model is ideal from four meters away.

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.

Sony Bravia KD43XE8004 43 inch TV – Five Stars

A very good tv for the price. It has an extremely clear picture, we are very pleased with it.

The android tv is the best tv for me. 4k is truly amazing just watching the slow mo guys videos is a good enough reason for me to get this one.

Massive size, beautiful colour clarity and impeccable sound. I actually purchased two (thank the lord for sales) as me and my fiancé have what we call a gaming station. As we both play computer games quite often, we like to do so even when together.

As expected of sony products.

Features of Sony Bravia KD43XE8004 43 inch TV, Black with All New Echo (2nd Generation), Charcoal Fabric Bundle

  • True to life with colours perfected
  • Life’s brilliance, revealed with extra colours

We are so pleased with this model of tv we were given a the heads up on this one and would recommend it to anyone thanks.

I bought this because of the reviews and i wasn’t dissapointed superb picture sound ok could be better the smart part is really good and it is fairly easy to set up i don’t know how long this will be on sale for but if you find one buy it.

‘live football mode’ looks incredible. Don’t stick with factory picture settings. The blacks arn’t absolutely inky-black in the same way an oled tv would be – but considering the tech, relatively little light-bleed. For it’s price (which i consider mid-range) you get a great picture – you’ll get jealous of your mates 65″ oled until you realise he’s £2000 more out of pocket. Speakers are just about acceptable for telly, but if you’re a movie buff, 2*10 watts won’t cut it.

Product information

Immerse yourself in the brilliance of 4K HDR. Incredible contrast, real-life colours and exceptional 4K detail.

Sony make the best tvs in the business in my humble opinion. Poor sound, but it’s a given these ultra thin tvs require separate speakers.

Very happy deliver in just a weekgreat picture quailty free to air channells works well would buy again.

Good picture and easy to operate.

Great product, awesome service by amazon when i contacted about a missing part.

Excellent tv at a good price. Lots of features which can make it a bit more difficult to operate until you are used to them. Picture and sound quality very good and when connected to my sony sound system provides a great immersive experience. At the discounted price i paid, it was a steal.

Picture and sound are excellent, has many features, eg netpix app and many more, great smart tv. Has two tuners, one for freeview and second for satellite, so can be used anywhere. Well made and price, considering what you get for the money.

Picture quality is virbrant and fantastic for sports as near zero motion blur.

Best tv i have owned thus far, picture quality is great and an absolute dream to navigate the interface. The android operating system gives plenty of choice of apps and suchlike, couple this tv with a good soundbar and your in business.

I bought this tv as it is 4k, it is absolutely stunning and i also have a ps4 and a sony blu-ray home theatre system and the brava sync control works better than any other tv that i have had.

Amazon Echo connects to Alexa-a cloud-based voice service-to play music, make calls, set alarms and timers, ask questions, check your calendar, weather, traffic and sports scores, manage to-do and shopping lists, control compatible smart home devices, and more.

Great service, excellent product, easy to set up.

Brilliant television with great clarity on the picture.

Just ask for a song, artist or genre from Amazon Music, Spotify, TuneIn and more. With multi-room music, you can play music on Echo devices in different rooms, available for Amazon Music, TuneIn and Spotify (coming soon); Bluetooth not supported.

Superb in every way, clarity, colour and sound,bags of features to boot treat yourself.

Samsung UE55KU6100 Smart Curved 4K Ultra HD HDR – Five Stars

Im currently using the 4k upscaler not full 4k but even so the picture is crystal clear.

Literally one of the best prodcuts i bought all year. Perfect size for a small room.

Very good picture quality, but it does not have a facility to connect my remote earphones. I did ask the trader to give me some advice regarding either headphone and also about sound bars but no answers so far as are his promises about good feedback.

Arrived well packaged in perfect condition. Easy to set up, beautiful clear picture.

So easy to set up, looks great and sounds great too , will be ordering another one of same size very soon.

This really is a great tv, it’s my 2nd smart tv, but first curved. It’s smarter than my 1st and the picture quality is great. Very intuitive controls and simple set up.

Looks great nice quality picture very pleased.

4K Ultra HD Smart TV Wi-Fi Black; Curved TV, HDR, Smart, Full HD

Absolutely fantastic best tele ever.

Got the package late but very good product.

Excellent deal, i actually compared my deal price with the shops nearby and price difference was almost £75-£95. And the best part was amazon delivered it on next day. As far as smart tv is concerned, i’m an existing user of samsung smart tv so i already knew abt all the features however curved tv with 4k is simply amazing. I’ve no reason to rate it below 5 star.

Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.

I have put up on my wall and had many admirers. All modern services on tv and sets itself up basically.

Brilliant tv for the kids they love it playing the ps4 quality picture and sound however you will need to buy speakers to get more out of it.

Fantastic best television i have ever had fantastic sharp picture and brilliant colour highly recommend.

Works fine, good picture (though not convinced that the curve is more than a gimmick), typically poor in-built sound. Has developed a green line down the right hand side though hardly noticeable this is a worrying development.

I had an older 32inch samsung tv which i thought had great picture quality. Arrived within the timeframe. . Set it up and within 15mins was watching quality tv/movies. My samsung laptop works perfecting with this tv no problems streaming from laptop to the tv and no lag. Would recommend this tv to anyone wanting to upgrade.

Gret tv quality lots of optionsno bluetooth but not a big problem trying to see if a wireless keyboard and mouse work but no joy yethdd recording works with new maxtor 1tb first time (cheap from argos) took me a while to figure this out as i did not work with some old drives we had lying around.

A great tv that performs as good as it looks. The picture quality presets weren’t very good, but digging deeper into more adjustments gave enough choice to get a really nice picture. A shame that the customisation couldn’t be saved. One niggle, which i may find a fixed to, is that my sharp sound bar doesn’t work with it. Unlike my previous sharp tv, there doesn’t seem to be an option to have the sound bar and tv sound on simultaneously. This is apart from the fact that my sound bar isn’t giving any sound in any setting.

Great for tv but do need a hard drive to rec.

Amazing love it,love it, love it.

Fantastic tv at a fantastic price.

I’m using this 4k tv as a monitor, instead of multiple smaller ones, and it works really well. Cheaper than typical wide screen 37″ monitors and more real-estate. I had a 42″ philips tv initially but found it slightly too big. The curve on this is also useful when sitting so close. I’ve hung it on the wall, which required buying the right sized bolts and washers (to get it just right). Connections are well places etc for this purpose.

And at this price, what a bargain.

Sony Bravia KDL43WF663 43 Inch Full HD HDR Smart TV : WiFi compatible with Youtube and Netflix apps + many more

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

Very happy with all aspect of this television.

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.

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.

Features of Sony Bravia KDL43WF663 43 Inch Full HD HDR Smart TV with Freeview Play, Black, 2018 + Single Soundbar with Bluetooth and S-Force Front Surround, Black

HDR – Brilliant highlights, beautiful textures –

Sony bravia has been my first choice for many years and this does not disappoint. Great sound, vision and built in extras.

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

Very clever machine, finding new functions all the time.

Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.

Fantastic item, great value for money.

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.

Easy set up what can i say wonderful sony.

X-Reality PRO upscaling engine – Rediscover every detail –

Very pleased with product good value.

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+).

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.

Powerful surround sound thanks to S-Force front surround and bass reflex unit

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.

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.

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.

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.

Simple connectivity: one easy HDMI connection to TV and instant music listening from your mobile device via Bluetooth or USB

auna Line 501-CS-WN Passive Centre Hifi Speaker – Quality

Nice, smart and great sounding speakers for the money.

Good value for money, they sound great, which surprised me as i have looked at the front speaker output over a range from 2 hz to 20 khz and found the response is flattish at the start then rises and finally falls at just over 10 khz, see spectrum photo.

Disappointed that spikes were not included as these really do not only perform better with them, but as they are top heavy, prevents them from toppling when accidently knocking them. I have suspended wooden floors, so would buy spikes regardless.

These are awesome for the money. I bought the full set inc centre and rear book shelf speakers. I bought them to replace my black mission speakers that i thought could not be beaten. Woofers in the base realy make a difference, i no longer need to use the sub box anymore.

Bass is deep the tops are good mids are a little dull but i have 2 other speakers connected to a 4 channel hifi that have good mid range i have not fully put them under pressure yet.

I purchased the entire set of speakers for my surround sound system. Front lhs & rhs, centre, rear lhs & rhs and the sub. The sound from all of these speakers are absolutely amazing. I am running them off of a pioneer amp and the clean and crisp quality of sound is beyond anything that i have heard from any speaker at this price.

Fabulous speakers for the money , i use them with the denon app pma-520a. Great clarity , with nice bass kick.

Yes very happy with these loud speakers the german build quality is excellent good quality and service thay arrived well packaged and no damage great looking speakers and thay sound good for the price.

I was shocked at how good these speakers sound.

They look well very well made and finished and the components appear to be of high quality. But these are mid-range speakers, meaning they have no bass at all. I can only assume they are supposed to be used with a 5. 1 system where you would also have a sub-woofer. There is also no vent on the speakers (bass-reflex), it’s a sealed unit, i guess without generating any bass it doesn’t need one. I was comparing these with mission 700 (not good speakers but at least has bass) and cambridge sx-50 (great speakers imo)i’m doing 4 stars for what they are, but i wouldn’t consider using these on their own for your sound system.

I decided to take a chance on these speakers, never having heard of auna prior to my purchase. I have to say that these floor standing, attractive units punch way above their weight. Crisp top end and mid range, and the 12′ speakers in each unit deliver nice deep bass too. I can’t stress just what great value for money these are, and would recommend them to anyone looking to put together a decent home cinema setup.

Excellent value – as good as speakers 3 or 4 times the price.

I bought these speakers because i’d read a few reviews and at the price sounded like a bit of a bargain compared to the 2nd hand kefs and tannoys i’d been searching for. Visually they are very attractive and their slim design allows them to look at home even in a small listening room. Sounded a little bit harsh at 1st ( straight out of the box), but after 3 days of 24hr hour running in they now sound fabulous. Only drawback is they are not bi-wired, so investment in decent speaker cable is important to get the most from them. Otherwise a stonking pair of speakers for very little money. Here are the specifications for the auna Line 501-CS-WN Passive Centre Hifi Speaker:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Passive 2-way centre speaker with 60 watts RMS power | Two 10 cm (4 “) midrange speaker with phase plug and 2.5 cm (1”) tweeter | Elegant tweeter housing out of aluminium
  • High-quality connection terminal with gold-plated contacts | Closed wooden cabinet with walnut finish and removable speaker grille
  • Connections: 1 x connection terminal | Power: max. 120 watts | frequency range: 89Hz – 20kHz
  • Experience the new line – based on the proven Line 500 standing speakers, auna follows the consistent further development in the form of a strong-sounding centre speaker. | The auna Line 501 CS is a powerful centre speaker with two 10cm (4″) midrange along with phase plug and a 2.5cm (1″) tweeter with an elegant aluminium trim and 60W RMS output.
  • As a central solution for a sophisticated cinematic experience, the passive 2-way speaker offers matched components that produce a balanced, silky sound and allow high speech intelligibility, even at low volumes. The high-quality connection terminals have gold-plated contacts to ensure a distortion-free signal transmission.

For the price would definitely recommend.

I also took a chance, after old harlech castle speakers were not performing correctly, probably due to heat from a wood burneri can honestly say they are beyond expectation, on both digital tv/radio. I cannot fault them on different types of music, we will be playing mainly classical. The packaging was really first class, £2. 99 all the way from berlin (originally)i have no hesitation in giving them 10 out of 10.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Best Value I’ve had on electronics.
  • stunning
  • Awesome for the money.

Toshiba 65U5863DB 65-Inch Smart 4K Ultra-HD HDR LED TV – Amazing price . Amazing t.v.

I got this in the black friday sale so it was cheaper than usual. Arrived on time with no problems and well packaged. Easy to set up and a great picture. I’ve got mine connected to the internet using a cable, but it can also connect to wi-fi. I also really like the tv stand the came with it. I’ll probably order this tv again when i need a new one.

We purchased this for an elderly person who needed a bigger screen and a simple to use tv at a reasonable price. This fits the bill perfectly. Good quality, simple auto tune and easy remote. Only real issue is that assembly instructions could have been a bit clearer, but thankfully the elderly person was not assembling it.

I bought this to replace a 6 years old sony hd smart tv. There was nothing wrong with the sony but just felt like it was time for an update and i’m so glad i did. The picture quality is leaps and bounds ahead of the sony, even though the sony was more than twice the price of this one when i bought it. Its also 10 inches bigger which really adds to the experience. The only reason i knocked a point off the picture quality is because the blacks aren’t quite as black. The smart features have also come along way in 6 years and i found linking it to my echo no problem at all. It’s great being able to control basic functions with voice commands. I also looked at sony, samsung and lg’s when thinking of purchasing this tv and i really couldn’t tell any difference in quality until you get over £1,000. So for the price of this one i think its an absolute steal.

I got this for a neighbour and installed it myself and i was pretty amazed by the quality of this panel. I mean it is pretty good for this price really, my tv cost 6 times more and the difference is more for a professional to tell. Putting on the stand can be fiddly and annoying but you’ll get there sooner or later, after that all was pretty smooth and even the setup and updating the software was very intuitive i didn’t have to read any manuals or anything like that. If this is around your budget i would go for this rather than another model or brand, 43″ is also quite good. It is a pretty stylish tv, slim bezels and chrome stand make it a very nice addition to a square tv stand or piece of furniture.

Features of Toshiba 65U5863DB 65-Inch Smart 4K Ultra-HD HDR LED TV with Freeview Play, Black/Silver and Bose Solo 5 TV Soundbar System, Black Bundle

This is actually an lcd tv not a led. It very thick on the width like the old lcd tvs used to be. Not even close the thin new led tvs. It is written on the box of the tv also on the sticker on the back of the tv that is a lcd tv. I can’t really imagine how amazon and toshiba have pulled this scam. The image and sound quality are pretty fine but it’s really disappointing when you think you bought a led tv and you get a lcd.

I use this for my pc and for my ps4 pro, yes it does enable hdr, brilliant picture, superb sound and for the price you pay you are getting a bargain.

I’ve added the word budget as it is just that, but that doesn’t mean bad. I have a 55 inch sony android tv and 43 inch samsung tv (both 4k) in addition to this. Both are clearer and sharper, however, more expensive. The samsung nearly twice the price for the same size (43 inch). I paid £279 and the feature set is incredible for that amount of money. Sound quality is actually very good, in the location i have it in, tv speakers are the only option. I’d usually connect to an a/v amp and it doesn’t sound too bad at all. With none of the automatic volume controls or equaliser it did seem to act oddly to music being played from youtube. Played rudimental through the tv (which does tend to hit all the audio spectrum) and it seemed to get a bit mushy. General tv watching was fabulous.

I’ve tried 4k tv’s before, this doesn’t have annoying motion blur problems, the 4k is pretty smooth and pretty. Live tv recording works with simple usb dongle. Doesn’t have live pausing of tv. Brightness and colour look great, contrast is sufficient for dark scenes. However there is an annoying bright spot, which will be down to luck whether you get this or not. I’m really trying to not have this annoy me, given they boast features of the tv but have something so basic go wrong. All in all i’m happy with the deal i got, just wish the bright white light bleed through wasn’t on my set. Not sure if they would return for this.

Got it for amazon prime and netflix. No aerial so builtin wifi was perfect.

I had no idea what i was doing buying a tv so did get some help from my brother when i was looking. This tv was so easy to set up and install and i absolutely love it. Had no problems at all with it and had it around 3/4 months now.

Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.

Brought this tv for my xbox to go 4k. Not the thinnest tv, in fact more old school which is a good thing i think. With the extra meat it doesnt feel like its going to fold in half when you want to push a cable in. G which i had to send back which arrived damaged for this reason. The toshiba is still light and stylish the wireless setup is easy and all the apps you expect. The picture is crisp and very detailed, and did have the tv speakers on for a while they are fine.

Replacement sent, internet tv freezes all the time. Amazon only interested in refunding my £400, told me to buy another tv. Told them i can’t buy with similar deal as it was a prime special. Told them i wanted a replacement. Actually told me to contact manufacturer. Poor illinformed customer service. Sad thing is tv despite its faults is pretty good but not as a smart tv. Stick a 4k amazon stick in and it is great. Next time though i will use high street store like currys.

Great easy to set up and great to watch.

1 of Bose Solo 5 TV Soundbar System –

A great tv, that was bought for use in east africa. Considering the poor quality of both satellite and terrestrial tv , in east africa, this tv is absolutely amazing. The picture upscaling works perfect with an improvement in viewing quality being 100s%. Viewing was crisp, clear and as good as any hd channel that we receive in the uk. I highly recommend this tv as the technological quality is outstanding and can produce excellent viewing in africa so it must be perfect for the uk as well.

This was the first smart tv i bought and it’s got a fantastic quality, has built in apps including netflix. The only downside is that it has 3 hdmi ports where as the 2017 model had four.

For the £400 i spent on this, the picture quality and features are not bad. It’s exceptionally minimalist and lacks more precise features a tv like this should have such as motion smoothing, but generally the interface is good. The picture quality too is excellent, with vibrant colours and vivid details. The physical quality is pretty poor – it feels flimsy and the remote control is pretty cheap to say the least. However, the biggest problem with this tv is the horizontal banding – not everyone will notice it, and i’ve had two of these sets so i know it’s an issue with the particular model – there are a number of dark horizontal bands across the whole screen, probably caused by ribbon cables behind the screen, but they’re unbelievably distracting, as anyone with an interest in tech will tell you, as soon as you discover a flaw, your eye is drawn to that and not the picture as a whole. This banding is not always noticeable – it stands out hugely in light brown and beige scenes, blue and rich colours are great – but it will marginally warp the picture when a scene pans down the way. It’s an awful let down, because otherwise the tv is really great, and we can overlook the physical quality. But we can’t overlook significant artifacting.

Sony KD43XF7003 43-Inch 4K HDR Ultra HD Smart TV : Great TV set

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.

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.

Great looking set with excellent picture quality.

4K Ultra HD Resolution –

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.

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.

Sony Bravia KD55XF8096 55-Inch Android 4K HDR Ultra HD TV : Excellent, barring a fault with Alexa integration using wireless networking.

Love the picture quality of the 4k. Sound is good for the size of the tv but never great due to how small the speakers are, will be great with soundbar. Tv looks amazing and the android tv works without issue.

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.

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.

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.

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

This tv offers rich and vibrant colours and very fluid motion. Definition and detail are stunning and when watching 4k uhd content it is remarkably good for the price. The tv runs on android and has excellent smart tv functionality. The viewing angle is wide and it can be viewed from quite oblique angles and still looks good. The sound is very good for built in sound, for watching movies you may want a separate sound system with a sub-woofer but for normal tv i think the built in sound is perfectly adequate and even for movies it is ok (albeit it is not in the same league as a decent surround sound system). I got the 43″ screen for the bed room and it is incredible just what quality is available for a relatively modest budget these days, its not that long ago that a top of the line set costing £££££££’s wouldn’t get near to this. It feels a lot nicer than the cheaper entry level sets but you’re not getting high end premium materials and feel. That said, it doesn’t feel cheap or low rent.

Have had bravia tvs over the years none have disappointed. Picture crystal clear and sharp. Smart tv feature is great, sound quality is top notch. Other than that this bravia is great. One issue was the poor quality remotes they now produce which does not always work unless directly aimed at tv.

Would highly recommend buying this tv.

Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.

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.

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.

In testing alexa integration before setting up for an elderly disabled person i discovered that the tv will not respond to turn on by alexa voice command if the tv has been off for over an hour or two and is only using wireless network. This is entirely replicable and does not occur if you use a network cable to connect to your router. I gave up with sony support as they only care to follow standard basic troubleshooting steps, that are entirely irrelevant and don’t seem interested in accepting a bug report. Also, if tv has been powered down completely (at plug socket) for any length of time, make sure you check the date/time as the android layer may not connect to the internet otherwise. (symptom: top level network settings states ‘connected, no internet’, wifi connection below that displays internet connected and ip address correctly). Lovely tv otherwise, so one star lost for faults and low quality sony support.

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

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.

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.

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.

Amazon Echo connects to Alexa-a cloud-based voice service-to play music, make calls, set alarms and timers, ask questions, check your calendar, weather, traffic and sports scores, manage to-do and shopping lists, control compatible smart home devices, and more.

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.

Good sound and clear picture as i had expected.

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.

Coming from an old sony hd tv (one of the first hd tvs to come out 720p 32″) and over 10 years old but still worked as well as the day i got it which is why i decided to stick with sony and i’m so glad i did the 4k picture is unreal so sharp and the colours so bright and being an android tv takes it to a totally different level i’ve seen other makes that have there own app stores with only there own apps and couldn’t get on with them but this is just like using your phone/tablet and i don’t know how i’ve gone this long with out one had heard stories that the sound on these new slim bezel tvs isn’t that good and to be honest it could be better but it’s still as good as any other tv i’ve owned was a little worried about it being 4k as i thought i’d have to buy a 4k bly ray player or subscribe to some over priced satellite package but was really surprised as you can buy and download or stream the newest films out infact with the purchase it lets you pick out two films to keep for good to start your collection and in 4k and also being an amazon prime and netflix subscriber there’s a good collection of content in 4k to pick from too so all in all i’m so happy i picked this tv and i don’t think you could tempt me with any other one out there in this price range so if your thinking of going for this one don’t think anymore just go ahead and get it oh and one more thing i also picked this one to work with an amazon echo plus and had a few teething problems at first but now it turns it on and over and the volume up and down and changes the hdmi channels too.

Just ask for a song, artist or genre from Amazon Music, Spotify, TuneIn and more. With multi-room music, you can play music on Echo devices in different rooms, available for Amazon Music, TuneIn and Spotify; Bluetooth not supported.

When the delivery came through from arrow xl, they had not made sure that the tv was a) stored the right way up and b) protected against water damage. The van flooded during transit from heavy rain which soaked the whole end of the box, which it had been stood on. I opened the box and tested the tv, thankfully the tv was deep in the box which meant that the antistatic film was dry and the tv was undamaged. I loaded it up and the image was fine, no dead pixels so i let the delivery guy go. The tv itself is fantastic, great image and great to watch. Really happy with it and the os is great. The blacks aren’t quite as deep as some might like, but that is a minor issue compared to the overall package. Great colours, speed of image, presentation and i have suffered none of the os issues i’ve heard about. I’m in a new house so the internet is being connected today, so i may add to this report once i’ve streamed 4k footage through it.

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.

Great looking set with excellent picture quality.

Sony Bravia KDL-32WD751 32 inch Full HD Smart TV – Great tv

Bought as gift, recipient happy.

Great picture and size, easy to use controls and looks good.

Bought for my mother as a christmas present. The built in netflix is an awesome feature. Sound quality is good for what it is but obviously better sound would come from a sound bar.

Just great, good service from supplier. The screws that suppose to fix the stand to the t. Was not supplied so had to use glue to fix it.

For a reasonably small screen by todays standards it has an excellent picture quality and very easy to install.

Got a gd deal at the time of purchase.

For a sony 32 inch it gives a nice picture and sound though could’ve been slightly cheaper.

Excellent picture and sound quality and easy to set up, delivered timely and delivery team contacted in prior and checked availabilityvery happy with the purchase.

I well pleased with the television so far———- if we ever get proper broadband speeds it will be even better.

I bought one for my son, then a samsung for me. Then i moved and bought this one for me too. I’ll probably buy a sound bar.

This tv surpassed my expectations, i had read some negative reviews but went with the positive ones. Excellent picture quality and sound. Quality finish and the remote is easy to handle.

Game, cinema, music and etc. However it’s built in freeview doesn’t work; it scansbut returns with no chanels.

Picture is great, sound is good, unless you use it with an apple tv. The music overpowers any voices in the film. Sounds fine through headphones, but who wants to use headphones?. Also, there’s no rc sockets, so you’re restricted to audio out through digital optical or that line-in headphone socket.

Very good picture, sound quality. Very easily configured and connected to internet.

Wonderful product very pleased with it.

Great picture, great smart features.

Good tv, shocking lack of apps.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great picture, bad sound
  • The best TV for me
  • Having used Sony Bravia Tv’s since they were first introduced

Lovely picture, great design, slim and elegant, but sound needs beefing up with a sound bar. The whole thing works well using a digital audio cable.

Having used sony bravia tv’s since they were first introduced i did not believe that this model could be an improvement. However this set is really incredible and the picture quality is unbelievably. This really is a product leader.

Great tv but you can not add apps to the smart menu which is a shame.
