Overpriced.

This isn't bad value but I'm sure there's even better out there.

This is the slightly newer 50" panel version from richersounds.ie for €541 including a 6 year warranty:

Or if you are open to looking at other brands then my father bought this recently and it's very impressive for the money:

The tv in the op is curved, I assume that is what is what they are looking for. Its not a gimick that ever really took off.

Tbh, you'd be better going with a flat panel, this years models and preferably with dolby vision if budget allows.

Here is one Im keeping an eye on.

Really depends on what you will be pumping into it, high bit depth/HDR/dolby vision etc are wasted features if you will not be supplying these feeds to the TV and at 49" depending on your viewing distance could be a waste anyhow.
The one Kolido links to is nice but those panels are not 10bit (they are 8bit plus some messing around in the background to allow them to advertise as 10bit) so a massive drop in colour range which is the primary reason for HDR. To take advantage of proper HDR a TV needs to be very bright also and that TV is only 500nits which is SDR range, proper HDR should be 1000nits +
A Dolby Vision panel at 10bit is still a massive compromise as Dolby Vision is 12bit.

All the jargon is unfortunate, it's the way TV marketing has gone.

That's it in the post above. Not on sale anymore.

There are TV's less than €350 (not all smart) available online from Europe if you look around, without 3rd party delivery. I have seen more on other Amazons and other online stores.
I also got this for €324 delivered last week, Ordered on 7th, so it took longer than expected. Requires external sound, but the TV itself is decent.

I wouldn't be overly happy buying those TV's from mainland Europe. Regardless of the panel used, they are poor quality sets in general and far more likely to fail than better built models. Which is fine because you get what you pay for, but you can get very cheap brand 4K TV's here for not a huge amount more, and if something goes wrong you can easily return it.

Curry's for example have a 49" JVC 4K for €370 - that's just €70 in the difference when you factor in delivery. The JTC may have a better panel but it's far more of a headache if something goes wrong at any point. Especially if you're using parcel forwarding services to buy from sites that don't ship to Ireland, then you are effectively buying a 2nd hand TV as there's no realistic warranty.
