Not sure of the quality and kogan delivery is not super cheap, so not sure if this is a bargain - but the votes will decide that.

EDIT

        That would be no then.

        These refresh rates aren't good enough to what most movies on, let alone sport or gaming.

        Also almost all tvs and monitors aren't 4K, they are UHD. There is difference and it can be important. It is about time the ACCC smacked some of these distributors and retailers over the head for false and misleading advertising.

    "Cheap" and "4K TV" don't bode well with me. You get what you pay for

    There is no point in 4k on such a small TV, you'd have to sit within 2 feet of the thing, even assuming there was some 4k content, to see the difference . Physics doesn't change, stick with a better featured 1080p TV in that size.

      Those charts used incorrectly, or offered as an endpoint to a conversation about 4k panels are terribad. They only take into account the ability for eyes to resolve pixels, but it doesn't take into account the other many direct benefits that a higher resolution can offer, such as colour clarity, motion improvements and so on.

      You can see this yourself easily enough in a well setup TV demonstration - walk into a site that has large 4k sitting next to any other large non-4k TV and feed them the same content and you will absolutely be able to tell there is a difference between the panels that isn't only because of the increased resolution (mind you, the difference may not fall in favour of the 4k at all, but that's not the point here). Afterall, we're still dealing with impossibly poxy ppi's when it comes to TVs and even PC monitors, certainly compared to even an entry level 5" smart phone.

        Most of the UHD advantages won't be there on this tv because of the refresh rate and I am sure the panel has a poor color depth.

          Agreed on both counts!

    crap tv. we had dell 4k panel at work for testing purposes and the 30hz refresh rate gave me a headache within a few mins of using it. Can't see the kogan being any different.

      Kogan is synonymous with crap.

      Thank you. At least someone knows what they are talking about.
