A uniformly good performer. A lot for the money. Smart features work well.
on 6 January 2016
I've had this TV since November and now feel I can reliably review it. Overall this is an excellent TV.
Picture quality is superb on UHD and HD content, and the built in Smart apps work well (Netflix, Amazon, BBC, C4 and others).
I'm getting Netflix and Amazon Prime in 4K where available, and it really does look impressive; Jessica Jones in 4K on Netflix looks superb, with detail in the blacks and accurate saturated colour.
Blu-Rays upscale to 4K and are again superb. Content from external hard drive (HTFS or FAT) or memory stick (USB3) plays back smoothly.
Overall the TV menus are fast and pretty logical.
Audio is very good at low/medium levels but starts to rattle if pushed too loud. There are optical digital and 3.5mm analogue audio outs as well as HDMI ARC.
Screen mirroring worked first time with my Xperia and Galaxy phones.
4 x HDMI inputs.
eManual (page 30) says HDMI (MHL) input is HDCP 2.2 compliant.
Out the box the TV is not set up well; turning off some motion features and setting the black and colour levels etc. is necessary before the TV is at its best.
Viewing angles are not as wide as some but are fine for normal viewing positions.
Black level is very good on correct material but much TV material has slightly sat-up blacks which don't show the TV's true capabilities.
Back light uniformity is not perfect but again does not show in normal viewing.
The remote control is rather crowded and not the best design wise.
Considering the purchase price this is a lot of TV for the money.
Overall I'm very happy with my purchase and would recommend this TV.
