We bought this for our main living room as we had resisted a TV in there for years. Because we now have our adult children coming to stay we felt we needed a TV where everyone could watch together.
We bought this from tesco Direct ad paid £379 and it was delivered to our house. We boughta bracket for about £40 from another iste and my husband set it all up physically. It looks neat on the wall and takes up very little room which is what we were hoping for.
My daughter and her partner set up the actually TV. We discovered that the aerial we had didn't work with then TV so we use it only on the internet. We got 3 months free NOW TV so chose the film package and have been enjoying those.
We can watch anything that you can get on NOW TV on on line and despite the fact the room it is in is far away from our modem it streams films really well so must have a good in built receiver.
The picture is really clear HD and the sound excellent. Even with fourteen people in the room we could all see and hear perfectly and four of those were children so not totally still and quiet.
The TV has Full HD (1920x1080) and Wi-Fi connectivity with built-in Freeview HD and connects to other devices via 3x HDMI sockets. It is also environmentally conscious as it has a superb energy efficiency class rating of A+.
By purchasing this TV from Tesco we automatically receive a free 5 year guarantee which is pretty good we thought.
The TV is also able to use the Smart Home menu navigation is you buy the unique Magic Remote but we have not botherd with this. They say that this magic remote is an intuitive control that uses gestures, voice and a scroll wheel.We felt the old fashioned remote was good enough for us.
You can also share your media to and from other devices using the SmartShare™ application from a PC/laptop, tablet or smart phone.I have not tried this as yet as we usually watch another TV we have in a small cosy room when there is just the two of us .
I believe the TV has more features than we will ever get around to using. It gets more of a challenge when we have our adult children staying as they do like to check out all new electric gadgets and see what they can do with them.
