The image quality is amazing when viewing HD channels or streaming Netflix but standard SD channels don't look as good but still much better than my old 40" Sony TV that this replaced. When watching 4K on youtube I was absolutely blown away by how good...

Android TV could be better and offer more customisation. The philips collection in Android TV which suggests things to watch and apps to use can't be disabled but you just click down to get to your own apps so not a big deal. The TV is fast with its...

Once you get used to the remote it is a very good tv. Very competitive price tag. Easy to set up. Its android operating system is working well. Was afraid it would crush a lot but it is fine so far.

If you want to use internet browser on this tv just forget it. It will drive you crazy. It desperately needs an air remote. You cannot download anyting on internet. Limited download options on google play.

Great value for money. Sharp and vibrant picture. Background Leds lighting add to atmosphere.

No microphone on remote, which can be used for voice control.

Lots of features and ambilight, screencast, android, wireless etc...

TV menus are slow, and audio cuts out when viewing the TV Guide. Android is full of rubbish apps that use up most of the space available. Would have saved myself £200 by buying the lesser 8gb version. Also some apps it won't allow you to install....

The ambilight i thought would be a gimmick, but i love it. Image quality is stunning at this price.

I don't like that you can't bring up information on the TV programme you are watching from the mini-guide without going to full TV guide page. A tiny point.
