Like many reviews I have read about this TV, it is a basic "few bells and whistles" 4K TV. As a refurbished unit, the price was great. It arrived undamaged and in like new condition. This TV has 4K resolution only when 4K programming is delivered through the HDMI1 port. It does NOT upscale HD or SD programming like so many 4K TVs do these days. The screen image is incredibly detailed and sharp in regular HD mode (I don't have a true 4K DVD player), and there are a few basic adjustments available for sound and picture quality. After tweaking them a bit, I'm happy with the picture. The sound only sports about 8 watts per channel, so it is not a robust, room filling sound from this TV, but it's adequate for late night viewing in the bedroom I bought it for. All in all, it's an okay basic 43 inch TV that has enough going for it that I feel I got my money's worth. REVIEW ADDENDUM: To anyone purchasing this TV, be aware that most of the included picture settings in setup have the color saturation level set at 50. I'm assuming the unit I bought is no different from other new or refurbished units sold, but at the 50 setting the colors are seriously over-driven and even the black and dark images on screen have a lot of glowing blue in them. I finally backed the "COLOR" setting in the "PERSONAL" (customized) configuration down to 35 and the colors look a whole lot more natural with the black parts of an image looking black. Just a suggestion.
Chromecast could be working a lot nicer than it is, but the functionality of the TV is very good. The settings menu is entirely based on the smartphone app so keep that in mind, the brightness it comes with standard is borderline blinding too. .
My review for this TV is out standing the TV is all readily set up and readily to watch. It comes with light control witch I prefer to turn off. You can set to ones owes watching preference, which is easy to scroll from one setting to the next. You can go back to original factory setting if you don't like you own setting which I did. Enjoy!!
What can I say, this tv is awesome! I know a few reviews I read online didn't like the tablet but I have no complaints with it. We actually use Apple TV, which works very well with this unit. I've used the tablet though and it seems to work fine as well. The tv was easy to set up and program and we were watching it within a half hour after getting it out of the box. The picture is sharp, the color is amazing and the sound seems fine. Our home is small though so for a larger space, I'd say you might want to invest in a sound bar or extra speakers. I am so happy with this purchase and this tv!! I highly recommend it.
