This is not just a large TV either, but one that comes with QLED screen panel tech, which means brighter images with more accurate colours than LED TVs. It also comes with Hisense's Smart TV interface for easy access to streaming apps like Netflix and Disney Plus.

The Hisense TV also comes with DTS Virtual X premium audio post-processing and DTS Virtual for simulated 7.1 surround sound, a dedicated Game Mode feature that drops image latency and reduces input lag, and has Amazon's smart assistant Alexa built-in, too.

Basically, it's a lot of TV for £429. Here are the full details.
