What People Are Saying

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 133 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Broken screen I bought this product September 2014 and had been happy with it until may 2016. At this time the screen went. I returned it to the suppliers under the sale of goods act due to it being out of warranty. They told me that they had put a new screen in however 4 months later it went again. This time they say it is not cost effective for them to fix again and have offered me £210. I am unhappy with this as I should not be expected to buy a new television every 2 1/2 years and then have to put my hand in my pocket to enable me purchase another TV. This is what happens when you buy from Curry's. 20 October 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good picture, but not very smart It looks good and the picture quality is great, but the software is next to useless. This is not a smart tv, it's an idiot. I can't get an App for BBC iPlayer, 4OD or ITV Player - they doesn't exist for this model as its "too old". It's a 2014 model! So I have to use the Internet browser. This is really difficult to use because if you let the cursor hover over a button even for a microsecond, it self clicks it, so you spend a lot of time going back again, and again! When I bought this tv a year ago, the only "on demand" Internet site that worked was the BBC iPlayer, ITV and Channel 4 both buffered from the start - something to do with the tv using an old version of "Flash". I had hoped this would get sorted, but it hasn't. It's got worse, so now the BBC iPlayer also buffers on the intro as well (presumably they've changed something), so I can't get any "on demand" services at all. I've tried updating the software - this makes no difference, and the "Flash" is apparently in the "firmware" so can't be updated. I've got a lovely picture, but no smart features at all. 29 October 2015
