What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the Price This is a fair standard 50in TV for the price. We have had no issues with the picture quality however, noticeably different on HD channels. Easy to setup channels and connect other devices. (wires not included) The stand is not 100% secure so probably more suited to being fixed to a wall. If you're looking for a loud TV though, definitely dont go for this one, the sound is clear but for music and sound effects, a soundbar/system will be required. Image and display is the key feature for this TV and it suits our small lounge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Value for money. Looks good and easy to use. Picture not brilliant unless watching HD channels. Sound quality is not great, would definitely recommend using with a soundbar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good TV, Global Dimming Is A Pain Great TV. Although took a while to configure so that the dimming on the TV wasn't obvious (Has to set Blacks to High). Once that was done, the picture is fantastic. Sound could be better, but considering I bought this in the Sales it was a total bargain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from does what it says on the tin Great looking TV, easy to set up, great sound quality not really anything negative I can say. I also grabbed it in the Currys sale so the price was stupidly cheap. SD channels look a little blurred close up (who sits that close under 5 yrs old anyway?!) but the HD channels look fantastic!
