      Ordered the 65k700 around six weeks ago after being told it should be available early september.After contacting Marks Electrical they gave me an earliest availability of october 12th received another email yesterday of earliest availability october 26th.
      Dont know what the delay is but starting to get annoying, have sent 2 emails to Hisense uk about availability but they have chosen not to reply not good customer service.
      If my tv had gone kaput I would have been without a tv for a month waiting for Hisense.

      Regards Martin

      As stated in another thread I have also bought the K700 58". I have not been told of a delivery date as of yet, they said they needed to contact the manufacturer early next week. They have also taken both K700 models off their website.

      I would not read too much into them removing them from the site, they listed the K321 and which disappeared from their site only to reappear a couple of weeks later.

      It looks like Argos also have the K700 listed now, but they do not include the model number to confirm it is the K700.

      Argos has no stock. AO shop does have stock.

      Just waiting on refund from Currys before taking the plunge.

      Also using code 4K40 on AO shop takes £40 off making it £859 for the 58".

      Got my refund from Currys so have ordered from AO.com.

      You can use AOSHOP50 for £50 off, 4K40 doesnt work.

      Should be here tomorrow if its cheap chinese crap then i can just return it no hassles anyway, fingers crossed its not.

      Arrived an hour ago but it weighs an absolute tonne so waiting on reinforcements, its alot heavier than the 55" Sonyx8505, or at least it feels alot heavier.

      Will hopefully get some pics up later.

      Took delivery of the Hisense 58KEC730 for £849 from the AO.com

      Having previously returned 1 x Panasonic CX700 for bad banding/DSE and 3 x Sony X8509 for bad light bleed/blooming and Android OS not working very well i was getting a bit fed up.

      Decided to take a chance on the Hisense TVs.

      It weighs a lot, only had it for a few hours, but Frozen bluray looked stunning, Netflix 4K looks as good as the Sony, i have all enhancements turned off apart from local dimming that works very well, black bars top and bottom are black unlike the Sony X85 i had where they were a lot lighter.

      Not blooming or lightbleed, very faint DSE watching the Mancs in the champions league.

      Settings out of the box are bad but it has all the controls to adjust.

      Not many smart apps, Amazon instant is coming in an update apparently, only one cheap remote and no voice control, but the main thing is the panel uniformity is good, native motion is very very good, much better than the panasonic, with not much blur at all, probs better than the Sony as well, it has built in cast and PVR recording etc.

      Not tried any gaming yet.

      HD upscaling on a freesat box isnt as good as the Pana or Sony but weirdly playing 1080p mkv via usb with the buitlin media player is very very good, a bit of noise but a very good picture.

      Overall so far im very happy, bit of a bargain for £849,

      Some pics of native 4K demos, blacks are very good with the dimming on, much better than the Pana or Sony, shadow detail on Daredevil 4K is alot better too.

      Still enjoying the TV MikeMikeTV? :)

      I was looking at a 60" or 65" but very tempted in the 58" you've just purchased.

      Yeah its pretty good, played sin city and the spirit blurays in the dark earlier and no bleed or bloom anywhere.

      The only thing i have found is that on certain material and indont know why it is a bit noisy, quite a bit of fuzzy grain, not sure why but its mostly SD football or poormans 4k trailers on youtube.

      Everything else is fine.

      Like i said it doesnt have the software feel or the premium brands but at least it works.

      I can not see the 730 model on the HiSense website. Is the OS Android or another for the 730?

      I also just bought the 58" from AO for £849. A question for MikeTVMikeTV, What picture settings do you have set up? The user manual has no information on settings, 3D, or smart features; taking a while to getting it right.

      Hi there guys. This tv has just popped up on my radar. I wonder if one of you could do me a favour please? Could you measure the width between the feet on the 58inch? I just want to check before I get a new tv stand in readiness. Thanks so much.

      Thanks Mike, that's great. I can make sure I get a stand wide enough. Have you had chance to give any gaming a go on yours yet? Your earlier posts in this thread have been extremely helpful. I was considering getting the Sony 65w855 but at 7 feet away, I think I'd be better going for a smaller screen, but wanted a decent size increase over my 46inch plasma, so the 58inch sounds like it will be perfect!
