Don’t forget to become our friend on Twitter and Facebook – just search for Finlux!

Seamless Streaming between devices

Take control of your TV with your Mobile device

An iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch App is available to download FREE from the Apple Store, which will allow you to control your TV viewing from your own phone, as well as making typing on-screen a doddle! It even features motion sensors to allow you to control your TV with your own movements! An Android App version is also now available.

Pause Live TV and Record up to 7 days in advance!

Pause live TV, fast forward through the Ads, or rewind your favourite bits

Stay in control of your TV viewing thanks to our PVR functionality. If you were to get a phone call during your favourite show, you can simply press pause on the remote and your show will wait whilst you catch-up on all the gossip. You can even fast-forward and rewind too if you want to catch-up or skip through the advert break Plus, if something really interesting comes on that you want to show someone else at a later date, simply hit the record button and the TV will record the show onto your USB drive!

All you’ll need to start using our PVR feature is a USB Storage device plugged into one of the USB Ports on the side of the TV. We recommend a USB device with storage between 8GB and 32GB for ample recording capacity.

Using the 7-day EPG – plan your week’s recordings

The days of planning your social life around the TV schedule is over! With our PVR you can plan the next 7 days’ worth of TV you want to record via the electronic programme guide, selecting what you want to record via a press of a button.

Playback your favourite shows at your leisure

When you get some spare time to catch-up on all your recordings, you can play them back from the list of shows you’ve chosen. You can fast forward and rewind your way through them too, again – avoiding any adverts if you wish.

Seriously well-connected TVs

4x HDMI ports to connect all your AV devices at once

A generous four HDMI inputs ensure you’ll have enough ports to allow you to connect multiple AV sources to your TV such as your home cinema system, games console, blu- ray player, set-top box and a laptop. You’ll also be able to switch between sources in an instant via your remote.

Playback your favourite shows, music or photos via USB

If you connect a USB storage device into your TV you’ll be able to enjoy watching and listening to your downloaded content via your TV. The media browser feature allows you to select video or music playback, to browse through your photo library and also access your recordings list.

Don’t worry - there’s still a Scart connection...

If you still have older AV equipment and still need Scart inputs, all Finlux TVs come with at least one Scart socket so you can still connect and enjoy your old favourites.

Incredibly easy to set-up and get watching

Our TVs are incredibly easy to set up and get running. Just plug the TV in to the mains and connect an aerial into the TV or a Set-top box and you’re on your way! A set-up screen will appear which will guide you through sorting out your settings and channel set-up.

Hook up your Laptop to enjoy great online content in comfort

You can connect your laptop to your TV via either an HDMI cable or VGA lead in order to watch a movie, surf the web in style or showcase a presentation for work.

No Problems Mounting

Fancy having your new TV up on your wall? This TV can be wall mounted very easily. Check out its VESA wall mount classification in the specification for its specific measurements or simply choose one of the two types of wall bracket we have for this sized TV. We stock either a tilting option which will allow you to move the TV up and down on the wall to adjust to different viewing positions, or a fixed bracket.

Remotely simple

Our remotes are designed to be very straight forward to use and clear enough for users of all ages to take control.

For peace of mind

All our TVs come with a 12 months warranty. Any defect caused by faulty materials or workmanship will be repaired free of charge where possible during this period by Finlux. If a repair is deemed not possible then the product will be replaced free of charge. You can also extend this warranty towards the end of the cover to a further year, two years or four extra years.

Stunning Picture Clarity

Full HD enjoyment

Enjoy the finest details of your favourite movies thanks to a Full HD 1080p screen resolution. You’ll experience HD programmes in all their glory, as well as stunning clarity when connected to a Full HD source such as a Blu-ray player or Games console.

Bright, Clear and Sharp LED technology

This TV features LED back lighting to deliver a brighter, clearer picture quality. LED TVs create greater contrast ratios – making black appear blacker – leading to a sharper image. In addition, they also consume less power than similarly- sized LCD and Plasma TVs and are mercury free.

Subscription-free integrated Freeview HD

This TV features an integrated Freeview HD tuner which allows you to watch your favourite TV programme’s in glorious high definition thanks to HD channels from BBC One HD, BBC Two HD, ITV1 HD (STV HD in Scotland) and Channel 4 HD (Clirlun in Wales). You’ll also have access to a further 50 standard- definition TV channels and 24 radio stations - without the need for an additional set-top box. High definition TV gives you a sharper, crisper picture with up to five times the amount of detail you’d see on a standard definition television with richer, more vibrant colours. And not only that, but you get such a crystal clear surround sound that you can hear a pin drop. All you need to do is simply plug your TV into an aerial and scan for channels.

I bought this to replace an ageing 32 inch TV that had seen better days and was pleased with my purchase. I had no problem connecting to the internet for BBC iPlayer etc. when using the dongle provided and the time slip facility and record facility using a usb drive (not supplied) also works well. One point to note is that it has no manual control buttons on the TV so don't lose the remote. For the price I consider this a good buy.

First the down side. This did not come with the wireless adaptor that is advertised so I am unable to comment on the smart features. Despite emails to Finlux support department I still have had no reply.

Now for the good stuff. This is an extremely good TV for the money. I paid £299 on eBay but I understand from reading other reviews that the price fluctuates quite wildly from month to month.

The picture quality is superb with extremely sharp images which can be fine tuned in the settings menu by adjusting sharpness, backlight etc., bringing Blurays to life. Avatar, for instance, looks simply stunning on this set. Blacks are nice and dark, even with the brightness up, and colours are very vivid.

I don't listen to the sound through the TV - I have a theatre sound system - so can't comment on the sound, but if you're looking for great visuals at a decent price this is the set for you.

Setup is extremely easy using the on-screen menus and I found I was done in a couple of minutes.

The only down side to the product is more to do with the lack of response from Finlux themselves. I hope they do get back to me soon and can provide me with the promised wifi adaptor, as I'd very much like to use BBC iplayer and YouTube on the TV itself.

UPDATE: Finlux didn't respond to my query via their website but replied to me within 24 hours through eBay. The wireless dongle was delivered within a further 24 hours. Can't fault that, just frustrating they didn't reply through their own website.

Overall the TV is OK. The picture quality is generally good, but has some shadowing on screen and light bleeds unevenly around the edges of the TV (can't comment on the PVR yet). In general we're happy with it, especially considering the price.

However - Finlux Direct were awful, at times it felt like I had to tech them basic technical support. The wifi did not work from the outset. Contacting technical support was practically impossible (you cannot call them directly but leave a message with customer services, technical support will call you back at some vague point in the future - you are guaranteed not to be home when they call). They eventually arranged for a replacement TV having not had a clue what to do over the phone. The new TV had exactly the same problem. They arranged for a software update to be sent - this didn't work. Eventually they arranged for the TV to be returned and the software updated by their 'technicians' - it now works properly 4 months after we placed the order. The frustrating part is that Finlux Direct know that some TVs have this problem (their words), and they simply distribute them without testing them.

While I'm fairly happy with the TV now, I would never buy from Finlux Direct again.

Bought T.V. on 7th August 1212;You tube ceased to function after 2 weeks;No help from Finlux ,they just told me problem was probably with server.The T.V. ceased to function totally on 22 April 1213 ( no picture no sound ).It was collected for repair on 24 April.Going into five weeks later still no T.V.All calls to service centre are met with the standard reply that they are waiting for parts.All I can recommend to potential buyers is that, do not buy from Finlux,as their after service is very poor to say the least.
Two weeks (28th May) later still no T.V. Have been promised a new set as the old one seems unrepairable.No sign of it to date ; every call I make is met with the standard reply that they will check status and call back.Needless to say they never phone back!
The sevice which I have received from the Finlux sevice/help centre has been appalling.
