    So lets cut to the chase. It's good for the price, but you wouldn't want to game on it because the input delay is horrendous and the HDR is either shite or non-existent.

    How'd I go?

      It won’t have HDR or zoneable backlight dimming at this size/price.

          They are two of the hottest features in tvs from the last few years. True HDR is meant to make a bigger difference than 4K.

            @AustriaBargain: Yes, going beyond 8-bit colour was definitely needed. For instance, in computer games you can often see banding artifacts over the skydome (especially at sunrise/sunset) because 8 bits per channel isn't sufficient to render these types of gradients. It's not just about MOAR pixels, but better pixels as well.

            Selective backlight dimming really makes a difference in darker scenes when the backlight would otherwise bleed through… That said, $600 for a large TV is a magnificent price, you just have to be willing to live with the drawbacks of older tech.

            •  

              @Thaal Sinestro: The problems with 8 bit colour stem more from what goes on when you compress an image and start modifying it than 8bit colours not being enough. Textures get compressed and lose details, then they get stretched, especially on the skydome, so 1 pixel can get stretched out into a one colour band of several pixels. Then screens (especially TVs) are more often set up to alter the picture significantly and crush colour range to make the picture more brighter/contrasty/vivid. Most of these problems can all be avoided of course. Getting a good display and setting it up properly is key. It's not just about having more colours, but using them better in the first place.

              Selective backlight dimming sort of works but I can't stand the uneven luminosity it creates. It creates problems very similar to banding, except it isn't just on smooth gradients, it can be on anything. To me that's far more distracting than a slightly brighter base level of brightness. Having said that, I'm not a great fan of LCD technology over OLED and plasma, and I do run any LCDs I use at fairly low brightness to counteract their problems.

              4K is certainly more useful to me than HDR but I appreciate HDR, as i've been using wide gamut monitors for many years.

              Big TV prices have certainly taken a tumble! Is 60" even considered big anymore?

            @AustriaBargain:

            I agree. But many would argue this is very faint praise.

            ALDI recently had a 55" Smart TV with HDR for $579. How important is 10% greater size?

            BigW have a 58" for $509. Save $90 for 2 inches. Any difference?

              @manic: That 10% diagonal increase is a 19% increase in screen area.

              It's certainly noticeable but not a huge difference.

      You forgot to mention that it uses a genuine SAMSUNG panel, so it will clearly have the same image quality as a SAMSUNG tv. All those suckers paying hundreds more for nothing, hahahahahaha…. etc.

        Don't most tv companies use either a Samsung, LG or Sony panel, with difference being the calibration and image processing?

      • +14 votes

        Not all panels are made the same, even if they’re from the same factory.
        You think Samsung is selling their top of the line panels to this brand?

      • +2 votes

        Yeah yeah we've heard it before. I've owned no name TV's with name brand panels, sure they look great sometimes (still scenes, bright scenes etc.) BUT they have a multitude of issues/defects as the panels that Samsung/LG sell to these companies are SECOND Tier… they did not pass their standards. But, hey they would be fine for a kids room / bar/ bedroom or someone with impaired vision.

          How about as just a 4k viewing machine for YouTube, Netflix, Cornhub and other 4k viewing websites?

          Thinking of putting one upstairs for free to air viewing then adding an Android box or something to watch 4k media. Might try a steam link on it also but I doubt 4k steam link gaming would be any good on this piece of trash.

              "Intensive porpoises" is a humorous example of a misheard expression.

    • +17 votes

      Don’t buy “smart tvs”. Buy a cheap panel like this and with the savings buy an AppleTV, ShieldTV, Vodafone TV or Raspberry Pi.

      So called smart TVs are always underpowered, lack apps, have ugly UIs or don’t receive software updates. Basically they suck and should only be used by someone who can’t figure out to changes hdmi inputs on their TV remote.

      •  

        I agree with the sentiment, but is it still possible to buy a high quality TV, as in high picture quality, without it being a smart TV?

        •  

          It doesn’t matter, Apple TV works with smart tvs too. You’ll use some of the smart apps but mostly you’ll use your Apple TV or chromecast.

        •  

          No, a TV that isn't smart is going to be a cheap chinese import these days.

          In the past you could though.

        That is called cutting your nose off to spite your face. Are you really recommending that Tv's with the best image quality and features should be ignored if they contain smart functions? You can simply ignore the built in, in favour of the nVidia Shield etc, as most owners of high end TV's do.

        Yeah good luck running x265 10bit on a Rasberry Pi.I have a 2018 LG smart TV and have a Windows PC, PS4 Pro and MiBox hooked up to it. 90% of the time I use the smart TV function to watch Plex Netflix etc. and all of the built in apps support HDR10. Not ALL smart TVs are shit. But yeah, at this price point they would be.

      •  

        Agree, just set up a mates outdoor viewing area, Platinum 55" UHD TV from this deal and a Vodafone TV - works brilliantly.

        Picture on the TV was much better than I thought it would be at this price.
