Toshiba 49U5766DB 49-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED WLAN TV – good deal :)


The first tv arrived badly damaged inside the packaging. The replacement was quickly arranged and old one collected. Had a few operational issues with it. The remote seems to be in a world of it’s own and the tv turned on and off randomly when watching a movie. Some online research led me to disconnect tv from the internet router and it cured the issues. Not ideal as my smart tv is no longer smart without a net connection. Great picture and stylish tv anyway.

Great price for what you get.

Great colour, looks very smart, need to be technical minded to set up though. Here are the specifications for the Toshiba 49U5766DB 49-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED WLAN TV:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Ultra HD 4K resolution – Live and breathe the on-screen action with a Toshiba 4K UHD TV. Bringing you exhilarating life-like picture clarity, 4K UHD TVs display four times more detail than Full HD models.

  • Eco Friendly Mode – A contribution from us to help reduce your carbon footprint. Achieve thirty per cent more energy efficiency with Eco Mode. USB Recording

This would be 5 stars if only it didn’t have the bright green power light on constantly. Other than that the quality is incredible and the sound with dynamic bass switched on in settings is really full and good quality.

Lots of connection points a real bonus. The sound is fine and can customize. The problem with this 49′ model is , the viewing angle. Viewed from the slightest angle ( other than straight on ) a misting effect occurs , this is a great shame because the picture quality is good. So i have moved it to the bedroom and it sits directly in front on a chest of draws, result is excellent. I did buy this for the lounge , but it has to sit in the corner, no good. Shame had to keep my old 43′ lg.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Highly Recommended
  • nice tv
  • WATCH SCREEN DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF YOU ONLY.

Great telly for the bedroom fantastic sound and easy to set up.

Received it yesterday and while not drastically different from the hd version of the same make (49er) it is worth the price given the audio, visuals and the way it gels with hdmi devices however possible. The only pain point is the mettalic piece that fits at the base of the unit, which is quite unsteady and wobbly. The hd version came with a reasonably sturdier yet firm base compared to this one. I also think the uhd version (this tv) is heavier including the base piece. In terms of visual experience, the inbuilt interface appears sharper than the normal hd version but barely differs in terms of quality and pixel density while watching netflix and youtube. It’s not the movie quality we sign up, rather the interface on each of these channels that is blurry. I’d expect sharper and crisper imagery if a device is regarded as super hd or future ready 4k quality. Not sure if the streaming channels themselves are optimised for quality. Although both hd and uhd (this tv) have decent sound quality given the dolby promise, the uhd version fares better while listening to heavy instrumentation and distortion playlists on spotify. Either way it’s a good bargain for the price and features it offers.

This is a quality product at a very competitive price-it is sleek and elegant in appearance-picture quality is good and to date i am very pleased with it-if anyone is looking for a smart ultra hd set at reasonable cost -then i am confident this set will more than be suitable.

Brilliant tv for the price and was delivered promptly. We also ordered a yamaha sound bar. Excellent pairing and extremely easy to set up.

This is right up there as one of my best buys. So easy to set up,amazing price and looks the part with chrome surround and stand, quality picture,sound and so easy to operate.

Cant wait to watch the world cup on this the first one turned up damaged but that was not down to amazon they replaced the item with no fuss although the cost of returning was nr on £40 by parcel force. Think they need to set up a free post on big items. Well happy with the product recomend to any one.

Unfortunatley there was 2 small blue spot on the middle of screen. When i received ive sent an email to amazon service and they solve my problem very quickly. I did order the same television wich is excellent. So is always some problem with 4k movies from hard drive. No not the hard drive is the problem 1080p goes well. But anyway in this price this tv is perfect.

The usual amazon service, arrived on time and as described. The tv is all i expected and i could not expect more.

Very happy no issues had this tv for about 6 weeks and it will not download apps or allow me to search for apps asked for a return only to be told my return has been closed as i am outside return period this tv was sold by a 3rd party not by amazon so please be careful when you buy from a 3rd party seller. Hopefully i can get it fixed under the gurente.

Been looking for a new telly for ages and looked at lots of modelsthis one is idiot proof – trust me- i am no techygot it set up really quicklystill a few functions i have to master but very happy with the product.

Absolutely great value for money, providing everything i needed – and morethe wifi connectivity to mobile devices is incredible, only requiring mobile internet to watch 4k video online, or directly from the mobile, without using any data or wifi internetfab picture – and looks great attached to wall using an adjustable rig.

I hope that it last a couple of years,l.

5 stars but 2 may have been harsh. If you’re looking for real high definition. This is not it – save up and purchase samsung or lg. This tv really confused me with what 4k utra hd means?. This is like regular tv on a really big screen and not what i expected. Tried changing the features, internet connections etc, and even when watching netflix ultra hd movies. But i’ve seen high definition which sometimes makes you feel like you’re in a director’s seat because the images and motions are so lifelike. Other than that, the appearance of the tv and tv stand are pretty slick and nice to watch.

Received this product it’s a good television for the price.

Some of the reviews i read complained about the sound quality. Picture quality and sound are very good.

It’s like being sat in the cinema (without the sticky floor). Great picture and sound – and dead easy to use. One thing though (and this goes for all tv manufacturers) make remotes that you can see in the dark. Backlight the buttons or something.

    1. 2.0 out of 5 stars Good for a "Normal TV" but it is not a "Smart TV"
      I recently purchased my toshiba 49u5766db. If you would like this to serve as a normal tv without internet capability it is decent enough. Picture quality is pretty good and the sound is respectable. Where this tv completely fails is its internet capability. You are not able to add any app to the tv that is not already included. Common apps such as amazon prime streaming, twitch, espn, fox sports, etc. Are not able to be downloaded. The tv has netflix and youtube, but the inability to be flexible to the viewing audience is where this tv fails. I will not be purchasing another toshiba product unless the app restriction is lifted.

    This review is from : Toshiba 49U5766DB 49-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED WLAN TV with Freeview Play – Black TV with a chrome surround (2017 Model)

    Got one set with some dead pixels leading to a black dot in the display. It was replaced by another defective set with distortion in the bottom of the display. A nightmare to return both sets, scheduling three pick ups that were not fulfilled. Terrible experience overall.

    It seems like a good deal, 43″ and in 4k for that price is way cheaper than most other options. I have experienced nothing but problems with this tv, and the customer support has been beyond awful. Firstly, within less than a month of owning the tv, there were stuck pixels everywhere. At a generous estimate, i would say about 1000 of them. I talked to amazon about a refund for this, since 1000 pixels in under a month is atrociously bad design, and they referred me to the toshiba customer support page – which i found, after literally days of trying to use, was the worst service known to humankind. They do, in truth, have very dedicated support to their laptops, but if you have an issue with a tv, nobody can help you with it. At least, nobody easy to find and talk to. I decided it was easier in the end to just let it slide, since honestly the stuck pixels weren’t all that noticeable unless viewing something really dark and sitting less than 6 inches from the screen, which never occurred, so i just lived with it. Maybe 3 months later, a small piece of dust became stuck under the tv – further highlighting how terrible the design is.

    This review is from : Toshiba 49U5766DB 49-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED WLAN TV with Freeview Play – Black TV with a chrome surround (2017 Model)

    The screen on mine started just randomly going blank, still has sound going but have to switch it off and on again to get picture back. It’s 4 months old so no help from ebuyer or amazon. Toshiba support is practically non-existant, tried the awful portal online portal a week ago, only an automated response. The one telephone number i found goes to roadside assistance(?) and the other i’m on hold to right now, 17 minutes and counting. Don’t waste your time with their chatbot. For the actual tv ( if it wasn’t malfunctioning ), the user interface this is generally slow, clunky and irritating, the app store is a wasteland, you can’t set more than one reminder, or more than on recording timer, the media viewer doesn’t support popular formats etc etc. I checked the firmware is up to date.

      Arrived on a thursdays, first turned on on the saturday, screen went sunday but still had sound. Rang toshiba and they had ‘repairtech’ take it for a week to fix it.

    However, over the last 4 weeks having continual problems connecting to freeview. It always says connect to the internet. Wifi is ok for everything else. I wish i’d bought a better tv.

    1. 4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing TV for the price
      Picture quality and resolution on this tv is excellent for its price. Sound quality is decent, would recommend buying a sound bar if you’re picky about sound quality. The smart os on the tv looks a bit dated but is easy to use and has the essentials (youtube, netflix)tv is easy to set up and looks very good aesthetically. For it’s price it’s an amazing tv which you would expect to cost more. Overall i’m very pleased with this tv.

    Bought as a 49” tv but it actually turned out to be a 43” tv which is a bit dishonest on either toshiba’s or amazons part. Developed dead pixel top to bottom line. Amazon offered a full refund but would not replace it. Lot of hassle over a tv that didn’t meet expectations.
