    Any reviews of the 50"?

    the Kogan reviews seem to be polarised, its good if it works, but several dont.

      With the specs (i.e. brightness), it is at best HDR 400, which isn't true / proper HDR. In terms of quality, as pointed out by Hardware Unboxed, you can achieve the same with non-HDR 10-bit monitor by bumping up the brightness and increase the saturation. HDR 400 is a dodgy standard which allows panel makers to claim their panels support HDR.

      Don't be surprised if you are not that impressed with HDR on this. Kogan basically re-brand el-cheapo TVs. Quality wise, they are basically the same as AWA, Palsonic, (whatever name you feel like). I recall seeing a cheapo monitor at BigW which looks exactly like my old Kogan (which I gave away due to poor quality) - identical remote.

        You're referencing DisplayHDR 400, an entry level standard for monitors.

        It's a 10-bit VA panel, so the colour and contrast should be sound. Most HDR TVs do not hit the 1000+ nits expected of HDR mastering, but in this case that's probably a good thing as this isn't a FALD TV.

        It's be much more concerned with overall panel quality and tuning than the raw specs, especially with Hisense churning out solid models at around the $700 mark.

        Their JU8000 series is pretty much the same as this but without HDR and is much cheaper. Do you think there's much benefit to this JU8100 with HDR 400?

    Has anyone ever used either one like this or the 43 inch 4k HDR kogan tv as a monitor, i play the occasional game but use it more for work related activities (Solutions Architect) it would be wall mounted and I have a rather wide desk.

      A colleague has been through two Kogan 43" 4K TVs. The first one had awful colour reproduction and wicked input lag. The second one was a newer model unrelated to the first and had much better colour and response time, but it had a weird firmware bug that would cause all the open windows and desktop icons to rearrange themselves.

      After a big fight with Kogan he managed to get a refund for it and bought an LG 43" screen instead and hass been very happy with it.

    BEWARE

    •  

      Beware of what? do you have any experience to share?
      I have linked above experience of people who own this.

  •  

    How would this compare to the upcoming Aldi 55" tv?

  •  

    How's the upscaling on this? Does 1080p content get bad motion blur?

    • +1 vote

      I have a Kogan 4K 50" TV (the previous model, without HDR) and haven't noticed any blurring.

        Awesome! You are the perfect person to talk to!

        How are you liking the TV? Any complaints?

          The first TV they sent me had a vertical line, a pixel wide, running down the screen. And the image looked a little yellow from wide viewing angles. Seemed to be a problem with the panel.

          I dealt with Kogan customer support by email - they take forever to respond to each email - but they were co-operative and after some back and forth collected the faulty TV and replaced it.

          Couldn't be happier with the replacement, for the price. It's bright, plays 4K content fine, and doubles as a monitor when I want to work from the couch. Best bit is that it is NOT a Smart TV, so the operating system is relatively fast (nothing special, but no 30 second wait to power on the TV either).

          I do use my own speakers because the built-ins on these cheaper panels are awful. Other than that, well worth ~$400.

    Just for more info for those looking:

    The 50' is a CMI panel, aka Innolux. Should have decent colours but the response time is a bit iffy given it's quoted at 9.5 ms (likely GtG). This also seems to be claiming a full 10-bit panel.

    The 55' is a CSOT panel, which is a joint-venture by TCL and Samsung, so I'd suggest that TCL's TVs would be a decent guide as to the quality there (or Kogan B-grade Samsung efforts from the past). Response time in this case is listed at 6.5 ms, which is very good for a 60 Hz panel (might be worth looking into if that's a typo), while this panel appears to use 8bit + FRC in order to deliver 10-bit colour options.
