Top customer reviews
The 4k aspect does as others have said look amazing, especially when viewing youtube 4k videos. After the first few days stopped using the smart tv function as it is very poor. Only handful of apps available and truly is a waste of time trying to use as the UI has not been given any attention to detail.
By passing this I use xbox one through the hdmi pass-through and this gives options of netflix, youtube plus many more.
The picture quality when source material is HD looks amazing and have had comments of how great the colours pop out. For the price you will be hard to find something that is of equal.
However with all technology things change rapidly.
Reviews from others have been pretty spot on so no need to replicate what has already been written.
After speaking to Changhong representative I have found out the following.
I asked if they planned for early adopters to be upgraded to hdmi 2.0 like the other tv manufacturers are doing but was a straight out NO.
The 4k hdmi is port number 3 so only one that cab be used.
The codec used is not H.265 and again Changhong will not upgrade the TV set so early adopters will be stung by this.
Later on perhaps there will be an extension box from a third party that will have the H.265 decoder which in turn will allow netflix 4k stream to be viewed but Changhong will not upgrade or create extension for this as I have asked and was a firm NO from the engineering department.
All in all the tv is great for what I use it for which is watching HD related content. Seiki up converting cable I also use and this helps improve the picture quality further but all depends on the source material.
The tv does enough for me but there is no support for future proofing and no rewards for being an early adaptor with the promise of the now standard Hevc codec being fitted onto the tv.
Googles VP9 codec for 4K does work great and can tell how good 4k will become but source material is few and far between. Amazon prime does not show anything in 4k content neither and even though plan prime content will be recorded in 4k they have not released a time frame and neither have they stated what format they will use out of VP9 or Hevc.
If you're purchasing this for 4k then I would suggest pick another tv that supports Hevc codec and hdmi 2.0 or take the risk and be in my position of waiting for an external box to be released which will be able to show Netflix 4k streaming.
Nuevola is one such box but think more is a phantom product so looking for newer android boxes to come out which maybe can support the decoding.
I do not have buyer remorse and happy with what I have however if I was looking to purchase now then obviously I would choose another product.
I have had confirmation that Changhong will not upgrade TV even with payment so be 100% sure you are buying for the right reasons.
3d glasses when they do sync to the tv looks great however pairing can take some time. 2d to 3d conversion when playing titanfall and watchdogs does look great and happy with a different aspect of gaming.
Tv states 100hz however only ever seen the tv capable and running at 60hz so be aware of this as well. I noticed tv does not have optical out neither so another negative but again got around this by owning an xbox and running sound through an amp.
Support from changhong goes as far as you paying for the product and that is pretty much where it ends. The software updates if you take a look at the site is confusing for a non technical person and just feel they have really dropped the ball especially after CES when they garnered a positive response.
Sony, Panasonic, hi sense have all stated would work with early adopters of their products to allow Hevc but this will not happen with Chnaghong.
Build quality of the tv I like a lot and is far better than the samsungs have around the house. The design is beautiful and minimal which I very much like.
For a 4k tv it is cheaply priced however it is still a lot of money so hope my honesty can let others wait for another manufacturer.
I am very happy with my tv but would suggest look for HEVC and HDMI 2.0 and if any manufacturer states possible support in the future would suggest look elsewhere.
This is their 4k offering and a pretty big gamble for people who have never heard of them about to pay what is still serious money for a TV.
From research I struggled to found out real information about the set and as there were no reviews, thought and thought and thought and then decided the only way to find out was to order one.
It arrived well packaged which was good start. It does not have the premium feel of say a Sony or Panasonic in terms of the back and the connections, but it has a nice thin, but sturdy frame, and a solid stainless steel stand (the back has vesa 400 fittings for wall mounting).
The set has 3 HDMI sockets, with SCART and Component sockets via adapters, along with two USB sockets. There are 2 sets of rechargeable active 3d glasses supplied, something that was hard to ascertain from websites. (It seems that you can use others from other brands too, I’m not sure if they all work, but they are pretty cheap to buy online and experiment with).
There are 2 remotes, both RF controllers. This is great for not needing to have line of sight to change channels, but disastrous if you were hoping to control the TV with your SKY or universal IR remote.
I connected it to an antenna for Freeview and it tuned itself in nicely, you may connect it to a satellite connection if you wish. It also has numerous SMART TV functions and an app store giving access to Facebook, Youtube and Twitter among many others.
Once set up, it is a very attractive TV, the thin frame and metal stand give it every bit the premium TV look.
When turned on it needs a few seconds to boot up, menus look OK, but could be described as a little slow and take some getting used to, but the TV is not hard to get set up to your taste.
Now, this is where the fun starts, is it a bargain?
There are some downsides;
Put some 4k clips on a usb stick and the TV does not play them, try to stream 4k clips from say Apple TV and it’s the media player at fault that cannot output 4k through HDMI. The TV didn’t support the clips coming from my server either. However, if your broadband is reasonable, go to Youtube and play 4k clips from there.
The plus sides;
Watching HD Youtube clips or Blu rays you will see TV like you’ve never seen before. The picture is beautiful. If you wondered what the fuss is about with 3d, this does excellent 3d blu ray or even streaming.
A lot of people scoff at others buying an expensive TV when there’s no content, “The prices will drop by next year, blah, blah, blah”.
One thing a 4k TV does now that 1080p TV's can't, is brilliant 3d. The screen has enough pixels to do 3d in HD, Passive 3d can't do it
If you watch a lot of TV, (I mostly turn it on and select the HDMI input that my AV Receiver channels everything through and watch films from my server or blu ray player, meaning I never use all of a TV’s features), you owe it to yourself to get the best display you can afford, I can’t afford a £3k Sony, LG or Panasonic, so I gambled on Changhong, I won big, I paid well under £800 for a TV that looks and performs every bit like the ones that they show of in John Lewis with the assistants looking at you like you’ll never own one.
I could not be happier, I have about £2k in change to spend on a real life.
In terms of a warranty, mine is still fine so it’s hard to judge but I gained a lot of confidence by phoning the “UK Hotline” and having a great chat with a guy in Germany who spoke excellent English and promised to investigate some technical questions I have, it bodes well.
Did I mention the picture is amazing?
I'm totally happy, go it for a real great price £560! I think my house insurance will cover it if any thing goes bad rather than risk the service they might provide. But seems well built, nice looking too. Top geeky tip is buy a bose sticker on ebay and place it in the middle to make it look a £3k - 2K4K screen ;)
One thing I'm not sure off is what is the best way to get a signal to it, currenlty looking into the mass of android boxes on the net, minix neo x8H seems to be the best I can find, but there are new amlogic chips on the way. So I'd love to hang back to get them as they decode in the new h.265 format and fire DTS to my amp.
I'd like to know if this HDMI port 3 is 2.0 or 1.4? The latter will do 2k4k pictures but at only 30fps, where there are 60fps 4k signals out there that would be better in hdmi 2.0.
But it is a no brainer, so so so cheap, so so so hot in the room, makes me look forward to coming home and watching stuff again.
