Nice little TV But.....
on 20 October 2012
I was attracted to buying this TV especially for it's USB recording and media file playing capabilities, however i felt disapointed at the fact it wouldn't play a single file from a USB flash drive and kept getting the error "invalid or unsupported file", i tried many formats including Avi, Mpeg, Wmv, Mpg, Xvid, Divx, Mkv, Vob and nothing worked, i emailed Finlux with my issues and they promptly got a technical advisor to call me, he said the TV was probably faulty and agreed to send me a replacement, when i tried out the new tv it had exactly the same problem but i decided to keep it anyway and bought myself a cheap media player to play my video files, on the positive side the TV has a good picture and sound, the Usb Pvr feature records your desired tv programmes also the integrated Dvd player works fine and to be fair to Finlux their customer support is good in some respects.
However support for file playing seems to be rather limited and i think these TV's lack the necessary codecs in order to play the files so if you believe this will be an issue for you then maybe you'll be better looking elsewhere or doing what i've done and buying a seperate media player.
