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.

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.

    Freezes constantly, literally unusable. No netflix, no youtube, no freeview, not anything. I contacted support and they said it’s a known issue. It’s a bloody tv not a computer, i just wanna watch top gear on dave.

    1. Decided to get myself a new tv after probably around 6 years so i’m a bit behind on what to get, however this seemed good value for money compared to others with the same spec. Firstly assembling the stand was a bit of a potch but we’ll let that slide. When plugged in the tv wouldn’t recognise anything so would not set up. It was only when left plugged in for a while and connected to the internet that a software update prompted which then allowed me to install. The big problem with this tv i’ve found though is that the sound is rubbish, it’s not clear at all. It’s a shame because the picture is really good and it’s easy to navigate round but the sound really lets it down. I’m currently deciding whether to buy a soundbar or just send it back.

    1. The quality of this 55″ toshiba t. V is as disappointing and poor as the 65″. The resolution is no where near 4k hd hdr or a 2018 model. Despite returning this product on 31st july to amazon, no refund has been made one and a half months later. I will be extremely reluctant to purchase any high value items from amazon since i bought a 55″ and 65″ from this site as one cannot tell when a refund will be made. I have sent many emails and i have yet to receive a refund for both televisions. So much for earth’s most customer-centric company.

    Pros- picture looks good (though i’m not picky)neutral- sound could be good, dunno, i use external speakers. Cons- not the easiest to set up. I’m no fool, i’ve set up plenty of smart tvs. Even connecting to my wifi network was a pain as the tv just refused to connect. In the end i had to use wps to connect, which i’ve never had to do with any other device. – dolby vision makes the screen go black when watching some videos on youtube on a ps4 pro. You have to switch between sources or turn it on and off to get the picture back. – the youtube app built within the smart tv locks up the tv forcing you to switch it off at the wall.
