About this deal

In addition to a digital optical audio for use with soundbars and music systems, there's a subwoofer phono output for those that simply want to add a little beef to the box's audio output, by hooking up an active subwoofer. There's also a VGA PC input plus CI card slot for European PPV providers.

Elsewhere, there are few surprises. You aren’t paying for a premium design, so understandably the Polaroid’s is fairly unadorned. A word of caution about the stand it sits on: it requires a tabletop that’s roughly 110cm wide and 35cm deep at the minimum. Not practical for everyone, we’d imagine.In terms of sound quality, it goes comfortably loud and has reasonable body, but we’d invest in a soundbar such as the Philips HTL5140 for a welcome boost in solidity and detail. Besides an integrated Freeview tuner providing a traditional terrestrial TV set-up, Roku’s involvement gives the Polaroid Roku TV full access to all of the major and minor streaming services – think Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video, Paramount+, and the like. Upon receipt of your item we will provide a FOC repair including any mechanical parts, if in the unlikely event the unit is beyond economical repair we will provide a like for like replacement. But for these low prices you're likely to be getting a decent picture from a Polaroid TV, as long as you don't expect too much from it.

We are also a little disappointed by the SD channels, which involve soft lines and misjudged shades of colour. Switch to standard-def via the built-in tuner and, as long as you’ve dialled the settings down a little, the performance is perfectly acceptable. A more premium TV will produce more punch, and also balance sharpness and smoothness more effectively, but this is still a natural performance with control and clarity.

Connectivity comprises four HDMI inputs. This is a goodly number and will be welcomed by gamers, however of the four HDMIs only one HDMI is 4K HDCP 2.2 compliant. This will likely restrict your options further down the road when 4K content services (such as BT Ultra HD, Ultra HD Blu-ray and SkyQ to name but three) become rather more commonplace. Roku has announced the all-new 55-inch Polaroid Roku TV, and it’s exclusively available at Asda here in the UK. You must notify us of your intent to cancel within 14 Working days of the date you received the item. If the item was delivered by Royal Mail or if you collected the item yourself then you will be required to return it at your expense via the same method. Please note any quoted time slot is approximate and does not guarantee delivery between those times.

The Polaroid’s built-in speakers are a touch crude, particularly at high volumes, but the sound is impressively clear and direct, with a decent weight to the lower midrange. This is a clean delivery, too, with no brightness or sibilance. When we reviewed the Polaroid P55D600, we praised the brand's first UHD television for its impressive picture quality right out of the box, both in native 4K and when upscaling HD/SDR content. There wasn't much optimization to be found in the set's picture settings, but there was also little need to fiddle.
