Does Not Astonish But Great For The Sale Price
19 July 2018
First, you'll need a long crosshead screwdriver to assemble the TV's base. Instructions are a ted ambiguous.
Plenty enough connectivity, though only HDMI 1 is marked the rest are hidden on the right together with an audio jack socket, although it does have proper sound connection as well as old SCART for some reason.
Plugged everything in and as soon as I put batteries into the remote, the TV came on very fast. Setting up is very easy, just follow the clear instructions. For some reason the channel choice is a little confusing as it doesn't say HDMI 2,3,4 but it's not impossible to work it out. I connected an Xbox 1 s to port 1 and a Humax Freesat box on 2. My sat box doesn't support 4K so the image looked the similar to my regular LED TV although I have to that my old Samsung looks to have brighter colours.
That said, once I turned the Xbox on, the TV asked if I wanted to turn on 4K ... yep I did. Wowser! Out comes bright, sharp and beautiful. I won't watch anything else ever again :) Plus the screen is huge in my small lounge so I'll probably never go to a regular cinema again. Ever.
The remote control is the best I've ever seen.
Bug, bold buttons spell out exactly what they do. Smashing! (AAA batteries inc.) Very light weight too.
Sound...well, it's on the thin side for such a behemoth. I'm guessing the manufacturers really want you to buy a sound bar too. In my case I have connected my fairly average but cheerful PC speakers that has a separate sub-woofer and what do you know; it sound great.
Overall I'm pleased with it as with the sale price its well worth it, but Im pretty sure I'd have choosen something different if it had the original around £550 price tag.
