Summary

This Finlux 32” 3D TV is something quite spectacular. I’ve never heard of Finlux before purchasing this particular TV, so originally I was a little reluctant to actually buy it. However after a few Google searches and one in-depth video review I thought it was time to see what all the hype was about.

The Finlux 32H7072-DT is certainly one of the cheapest 3D TVs you can get hold of at the moment so the bar was set quite low for this product before it had even arrived, but to my surprise it actually turned out to be a really good.

Straight out of the box this TV seems to have both the sound and display settings optimised and ready to go as soon as you switch on and start watching. From the initial un-boxing to sitting and watching literally takes less than five minutes.

Sound & Display

The high definition display quality is definitely not something to be scoffed at; it is clear, crisp and noticeably different from your average television. As for the sound, it’s very similar; not tinny whatsoever and the bass is just what you would expect from some TV speakers. Although hooking the 32H7072-DT up to an amplifier and some nice speakers would improve the quality it’s perfectly fine coming out of the TV itself.

Inputs & Outputs

Moving on to the inputs/outputs. The 32H7072-DT boasts a massive three HDMI ports, two USB slots, a CAT5 input, headphone out port and more. Finlux certainly didn’t skimp on features in this frontier; the only problem however is the placement of most of these inputs. The majority are directly on the back of the TV, which isn’t in itself a huge issue but could cause mounting problems if you so choose to attach the television to the wall.

3D Information

Overall the 3D display quality is respectable for the price. It isn’t the best but it’s far from the worse.

This particular model uses passive 3D technology, which is to be expected from a £200 3D TV. This means you have to sit fairly central when watching, although, I find that you can stray quite a distance from either side without effecting the display quality too much.

The 32H7072-DT comes with an abundance of 3D display options, which makes it extremely customisable. 2D to 3D conversion is also an option; don’t expect this to be an amazing change but it definitely adds a little boost in most cases.

Extra features

Two extra features that are undeniably helping this TV fly off the shelves are the built in HD Freeview and the ability to perform USB Playback.

Both of these features work hand in hand as Freeview TV can be recorded straight to USB (up to seven days in advance) and you can also pause and record live TV.

Is it worth buying?

I would say that the Finlux 32H7072-DT is definitely worth buying. The price makes this TV a bargain plus the features and quality make it even more so. There are one or two downsides but these are minuscule problems when you take into account the whole picture.
