Bush 49-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV review with no HDR

By Alan Ng - Nov 22, 2016

UK consumers are on the hunt to find the best 4K TV online in the UK, for the cheapest price possible. Bush is a model that is always offered for low prices, so how does the new Bush 49-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV fair against the competition?

While Bush prices are low, they always come with a fairly big warning sign as there is never enough information online for shoppers to do their research on before parting with heir money.

The Bush 49-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV is sold exclusively at Argos and specs include a 4K ultra resolution, motion rate 50, 2 HDMI ports, 2 USB ports, Smart apps with WiFi, DLNA, web browser and a dual-core processor.

While it does come with Netflix out of the box, we do have to warn you that this TV does not come with 4K features such as HDR. This means that if you are planning to buy this TV for use on the PS4 Pro or Xbox One S consoles, it’s not a good idea as you wouldn’t be able to support this format.


That also means no 4K upscaling and no UHD dimming either so make sure you are aware of this before you make a mistake. For those that just want the boost in quality though, this could still tick all of the boxes for you.

Argos are listing this on their website for £349.99, but an upcoming promotion will reduce it down to £279.99 which is a real bargain.

Going back to the warning signs though, as there is no official product listing for this model, no Bush 49-inch 4K TV reviews online, no word whatsoever on input lag and no manual to download.

Will you still take the risk and buy this at the amazing price? Let us know your thoughts on this and for those that do purchase, leave your impressions below as a heads-up to other shoppers.

    Looking at the Smart TV screen… I’m fairly confident that this is a branded Vestel (Turkish) TV, I know this as I bought one of their Sets under the Telefunken name. Likewise my set probably won’t support HDR either. But it does have 3D! Which for the Money I paid was worth it. The little 4k there is on Astra 1 (19.2°e) is gorgeous. Assuming this thing ships with all DVB Standards (C/T2/S2).

    The SmartTV Functions leave a lot to be desired. AndroidTV this is not. It’s pretty slow too. Again my set only supports 802.11 a/b/g/n @ 2.4GHz, and 802.11 a/n @ 5.8GHz it’s Smart Functions outside of the Picture above. Is powers by OperaTV which has some amusing content to cure the curious. But, any kind of apps are out of the question.
