Finlux TV Reviews in the Press
Here you'll find a range of TV related Finlux reviews for TVs which had been sent to experts to cast their eye on our latest kit.
Finlux Direct offers a vast range of great value TVs for each room, so we're well aware that with a number of different 3D, Smart, LED, LCD and Combi TVs to choose from, plus an array of innovative technologies such as USB PVR and SRS TruSurround HD, you may need advice on choosing the perfect television for you. We hope this buying guide will help with any questions you may have, and succeed in explaining the great features that our TVs boast.
What size screen should I buy?
The TV screen size that will best suit your viewing needs will be based upon how far you will watch your TV from. As a rule, the closer you are to the screen – the less the need for a larger screen TV. For those with smaller living rooms - a great way to create extra space is to wall mount your new TV. This will allow you to hang your TV flat up against the wall and create extra space to enjoy the full effects of a larger screen TV.
Normally a Full HD (1080p) TV will truely show its class when watched on a TV of 40-inches and above. Anything lower and the screen will struggle to really highlight the extra detail compared to an HD Ready 720p TV.
Our 19-inch and 22-inch TVs make the ideal bedroom and kitchen TVs as when viewed from close range they’ll perfectly highlight the finer details thanks to their HD resolution - perfect for viewing within a 5ft distance.
If your typical viewing position is slightly further than this, from 5 to 7ft you should look at our TVs between 26-32-inches. These will suit bedrooms where the bed is on the other side of the room, or small living rooms where the sofa is positioned close to the TV.
For TVs from 37-47-inch you should aim to sit up to 12 feet away to get the maximum enjoyment from your TV whilst a larger screen will suit a slightly greater distance.
Should I buy an LED or LCD TV?
If you’re looking for a new TV then you'll be forgiven for not knowing whether to choose an LCD or an LED TV. Whilst both produce fantastic picture quality and won't fail to disappoint, LED technology is the most recent technology and offers designers the chance to produce TVs which wouldn’t look out of place inside an art gallery.
Basically, LCD TVs work by shining light evenly through a panel made up of tiny liquid crystal cells. These cells then either block or let the light through to produce the picture.
An LED TV is simply an LCD TV with LED-backlighting, featuring hundreds of small LEDs (light emitting diodes) that light the TV from behind, producing greater contrast ratios in which blacks appear blacker - leading to a sharper image. They are also slimmer, consume less power than similarly-sized traditional LCDs and are mercury free.
What is a 3D TV?
3D TVs offer viewers a new way in which to enjoy their cinematic experience. 3D content adds depth of field to the action - making pictures come to life before your very eyes. There are two types of 3D available - Passive and Active. Our TVs contain Passive 3D.
Passive 3D glasses create the illusion of 3D images by restricting the light that reaches each eye. The glasses which also contain a pair of polarizing filters. As each filter passes only that light which is similarly polarized. Each eye sees only its separately polarized image, producing a three-dimensional effect.
Key benefits of Passive 3D:
A common perception of 3D TVs is that if you don't have access to 3D content then you'd be better off getting a non 3D model. This simply isn't the case. 3D TVs offer the greatest picture quality in both 3D and 2D, so it's better to make your TV future proof by buying a 3D TV now then regretting not having the future when 3D becomes common place within the nation’s living rooms.
2D to 3D Upscaling
If your 3D TV features 2D-3D upscaling then your TV will transform normal 2D programming into the third dimension – allowing you to enjoy all your favourite channels with greater depth and enjoyment. However, the 3D effect won't be as great as a 3D blu-ray movie from a blu-ray player.
What's the difference between Full HD and HD Ready?
If you’re looking for the best way to judge how good the picture quality of a TV is then the best general indicator is screen resolution. The resolution is made up of lines of pixels that display the picture - and the greater the resolution the higher the picture detail will be.
The resolution of standard definition broadcasts is 576i (576 lines of 720 pixels each) whereas high definition TV can be broadcast in 3 different formats: 1080i , 720p, and most recently 1080p.
Put simply, HD Ready TVs will only display HD broadcasts whereas Full HD TVs will do this, plus provide even greater picture quality when connected to a Full HD source such as a blu-ray player.
If your TV is HD Ready then it offers you a screen resolution of at least 1366 x 720p. Currently in the UK, TV programmes are only able to broadcast up to the HD 720p level so if you've got a HD Ready TV then you'll experience TV programmes at their finest levels of detail. View our HD Ready TVs.
For those looking for a larger screen TV and for those who intend to play blu-ray disc movies or want to experience the finest details from gaming, our Full HD TVs offer the purest form of picture quality a television can display. These are the only sources currently able to send a Full HD signal and leads to a smoother, more film-like image which will satisfy sports and movie lovers alike.
There are a number of ways in which to enjoy high definition content on your HD Ready TV. If you choose one of our TVs with Freeview HD built-in then you’ll have access to HD content as soon as you plug your TV in. Alternatively you can attach a Freeview HD box or use Freesat HD – though the latter will require a satellite receiver installation. Take a look at our Freeview HD PVR box.
By connecting to a Sky box, and subscribing to the relevant HD package, you’ll be able to enjoy great sporting action and view your favourite movies in stunning HD.
If you’re looking to make the most from your Full HD TV then hook up a Blu-ray player or a games console capable of playing 1080p format movies or games and you’ll get the finest levels of details available at the moment.
What is PVR?
Most of our TVs feature USB recording. This allows for the easy connection of external memory devices to the TV via USB enabling you to record digital broadcasts directly onto your external memory. It’ll also allow you to pause and rewind live TV making sure you’ll never miss those crucial moments again. Our Freeview HD PVR has a capacity of 500GB which will allow you record Freeview HD directly onto its huge hard drive.
How about SRS TruSurround HD?
TruSurround HD is a robust multichannel virtualization technology developed by SRS Labs that provides an enhanced listening experience unlike any other technology that has been offered for a two speaker playback environment. TruSurround HD processes up to 6.1 channels for playback over two speakers or headphones, and utilizes additional proprietary algorithms from SRS Labs to optimize bass performance for deep rich bass dialog clarity for better intelligibility of vocals, and definition control for maximum high frequency clarity.
Tell me more about TVs featuring 100Hz technology
The motion judder effect on fast moving objects is removed by inserting calculated frames in between the original frames, hence doubling the refresh rate with advanced 3D noise reduction.
As a result you’ll experience smoother, sharper and cleaner moving objects and enhanced overall picture quality with amazing depth feeling.
What connections should I look for?
Your TV will have a number of HDMI ports - the type of connection that allows the transfering of high definition and 3D pictures. Most games consoles, home cinema systems, satellite receivers, set-top boxes and DVD/Blu-ray players will connect via HDMI.
Some of our TVs have four HDMI inputs, making them perfect for switching between sources with your remote at ease - saving you unplugging certain AV equipment when using another.
As some older AV equipment still use SCART connections, our TVs also accommodate this so you’ll be able to connect your existing equipment easily.
USB connections enable the sharing of your media on your big screen TV – great for showing holiday snaps or re-living home videos. You’ll also be able to play all your tunes out loud. Our TVs with USB PVR brings you control of the scheduling – allowing you to record, pause and rewind live TV, as well as scheduling future recordings.
VGA PC ports are particularly ideal for our smaller TV range as they make the perfect computer screen. Simply connect your laptop or computer to the back of your TV and you’ll enjoy your computing on the bigger screen.
What is a Smart TV?
A Smart TV is a TV that’ll bring on demand and catch-up TV services directly to the comfort of your living room sofa.
Finlux Smart TVs come with BBC iPlayer - allowing you catch-up with all your favourite TV and radio shows from BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Three and BBC Radio stations throughout the UK. The easy-to-use App will store the last 7 days worth of programming so you’ll never miss out again.
Sit back and share some of the funniest videos in the world via the YouTube App, whilst for social media fans there’s simple access to Twitter and Facebook, as well as sites such as eBay!
You’ll also be able to enjoy video on demand services via Viewster – offering you a range of movies ready to go when you are.
To connect your Smart TV you’ll need to plug in an Ethernet cable into the back of your TV from your home network, so you’ll either need a cable long enough to stretch from your network point or look into a Homeplug that’ll carry your internet connection through your power supply.
Some Finlux products feature Pixellence2. This is a distinctive technology that provides superior picture quality. With Pixellence2 edges are sharper, images are more distinct, colours are more vivid, and fast-moving objects have a smoother and more precise look.
What about wall mounting?
You can save even more space in your home by wall mounting your TV. You may think this would be complicated to install or too much of a risk to do yourself, however wall mounting your new TV is simple and can transform your living room into a real entertainment hub.
There are different types of brackets available which can attach your TV flat to the wall, allow it to be tilted as well as fully articulating brackets.
What is the Digital Switchover?
Digital TV switchover is the program that will provide digital TV to almost everyone in the UK. Once it is complete the old analogue TV signals will be shut down.
The digital switchover is nearly complete across the country with only Meridian, Tyne Tees and Northern Ireland regions left to switch. Viewers in Meridian can expect the switchover to start by 4th April 2012, whilst the Tyne Tees will start from 12th September 2012.
Every TV which still uses an analogue signal (channels 1-5) will need replacing with a digital TV so that you can continue to enjoy your TV viewing.
What is the difference between Freeview and Freeview HD?
For the last few years manufacturers have been selling HD Ready TV's with built in Freeview. This means that the TVs will receive regular Freeview channels and when they are connected to a HD device (such as a Blu-ray player etc.) they will display the output in HD.
However, just because these TVs are HD Ready does not mean that they can receive Freeview HD transmissions via their internal tuners. You'll need to ensure you choose one of our TVs with Freeview HD built-in or attach our Freeview HD PVR box. This will enable you to watch all your regular standard definition Freeview channels as well as the following dedicated hi def channels: BBC HD, BBC One HD, ITV HD, Channel 4 HD. There’s no subscription and no satellite dish. The PVR will also allow you to record up to 500 hours worth of HD programming.
How about USB Media Playback?
Audio and video devices can be easily connected to your TV via the USB port allowing you to display image and video files like JPEG, Xvid, avi, MPG, MP3 and MP4. It’s a simple ‘plug & play’ format – so you won’t need to go through any complicated menu’s to get hold of your media.
