Finlux 49UT3E310B-T Review - 3D, Sound and Conclusions Review


Finlux 49UT3E310B-T – 3D Picture Quality

Since it uses the passive 3D system, the 49UT3E310B-T’s 3D pictures are free of both the flickering and crosstalk ghosting noise issues that still tend to affect active 3D pictures. The sense of space in the frame is large and believable too, helping 3D images look more natural and less fatiguing over the length of a film.

The lack of brightness and colour punch both reduce the 3D impact to some extent, though. Motion can look a little jerky too, and there’s no motion processing to smoothing things out. Finally, 3D Blu-rays look extremely soft – more like standard definition than 4K.

Finlux 49UT3E310B-T – Sound Quality

The 49UT3E310B-T is more effective with its sound than its pictures. Predictably there isn’t much bass to speak of, but the soundstage spreads quite nicely away from the screen without becoming incoherent.

The speakers can deliver plenty of volume without starting to distort or crackle, the mid-range is open enough to keep voices sounding convincing even during action scenes, and there’s plenty of treble detail in the mix.

The treble range can become a touch harsh during loud moments, but there’s enough scale to the soundstage to prevent this harshness becoming truly painful.

Other things to consider

Measuring the 49UT3E310B-T’s input lag reveals a pretty respectable figure of 31ms if you use the screen’s Game picture preset. This is in line with most other 4K TVs and low enough not to significantly damage your gaming skills.

Should I buy a Finlux 49UT3E310B-T?

Despite its cheapness, it’s hard to recommend that anyone buys the 49UT3E310B-T – particularly as it really struggles to deliver on its headline 4K promise. Certainly it loses out badly in this regard to the similarly priced Hisense LTDN50K321UWT which delivers extremely sharp images, as well as deeper black levels.

It’s worth pointing out, too, that you can get the far superior Panasonic 50CX680 4K TV for only £150 more.



While it’s easy to be lured in by the 49UT3E310B-T’s stunningly low price, it’s really not the 4K bargain it first appears.
