Bought a Hisense FHD 49inch TV recently and love using it so far. The specs are available here: http://www.hisense.co.za/product/49-fhd-m2160-hx49m2160nf
I didn't want to buy a UHD smart TV as I already own a Chromecast device that can make the TV smart. At the moment I can just plug in my USB into one of the two USB ports and play most of my video files (x264 encoded and some HEVC) that I've downloaded. The TV was light and when it arrived I could just take it up to my apartment with minimal effort. I have upgraded from a Samsung 32 inch LED HD Ready TV. The Hisense has three HDMI inputs and that's more than enough for my usage. The HD channels from DSTV looks very good on this TV and you can clearly see the difference in image quality from the SD channels.
The sound is not the best (loudest) that I've heard but overall quality of sound is good. Very slim TV panel with wall mount included as well although I have not mounted it on my wall yet. I would recommend this TV for anyone looking to upgrade from a smaller non-smart TV to a much bigger non-smart TV. The smart part can be added through a multitude of devices on the market currently and adding the cost up with the cost for a FHD smart TV will come out to be about the same amount with the only difference that with an external device you won't be stuck with watching only certain videos but whatever you can find to stream to your TV.
65K3300UW - 65inch - Bought it on special from Makro, very happy with the ability of the TV. Apart from it being the largest TV I have ever bought, the colours are crisp and the TV quality is amazing.
Works great with the PS4 and other streaming devices, if you have 4k content then the TV really shows what it can do.
