This review should indicate our stand on the 37UL863B's; there's little here to really get excited about, but we can see this catch-all TV matching up to the expectations of a lot of people.

We liked

A fine remote, decent GUI and highly watchable pictures from all sources make the 37UL863B good value. Not only does it have tuners for both Freeview HD and Freesat HD, but an overhauled and attractive EPG on top of USB recording.

The GUI's icons for BBC iPlayer and YouTube upfront give quick access to these kings of the smart TV landscape – and all via an integrated Wi-Fi module, which we didn't expect at this price.

We disliked

Inconsistent with digital files and with a roster of online services that are plagued by a lack of content and faltering links within to YouTube and BBC iPlayer, the 37UL863B is hardly the smartest TV around. Its free smartphone app needs updating, pictures lack a little contrast (in part due to light leakage), and both audio and 'personal TV' fail to excite.

Final verdict

A good size and spec for a second room or bedroom TV, this Edge LED TV is a great value set with both Freeview HD and Freesat HD.
