Thanks @onhunt for the above. Similar to this post https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/450922 for $349 excluding shipping which was a bit of a ripoff in the last deal.

This one works out about $20 cheaper for me.

Other TVs may also get the free ship and be good prices but this was the one I was after for a small home office.

    Per a few of the comments from prior deals to assist in setup - thanks to those below:

    @cheap skate
    I found the code to access the "service menu" today after updating the firmware.
    To access the "service menu": press the "menu" button on the remote control followed by the numbers "1147".
    I found the extra settings under display like the HDR settings quite good.

    @HKS
    Brightness: 61
    Contrast: 54
    Colour: 50
    Tint:0
    Sharpness: 5
    Backlight: 55

    these could most likely be changed and improve the picture quality but i dont really care too much as it looks good for me.

      it looks great as default but i find tweaking things gives me satisfation.

      Turned off vip in service menu and turned down brightness a bit. Now it’s all sweet :)

        Hi @MetalPhreak, Do you observe colour banding a lot as I do. I looked under panel settings in the service menu and the colour depth was set as TI_6BIT_MODE. Can you have a look in your tele for this please? It should have been atleast 8 bit I would have thought. Thanks

    •  

      Did anyone find a game mode setting in the service menu?

  •  

    Shipping doesn't appear to be free.

  •  

    Thanks mate. Good timing, just decided this morning i needed a cheap smaller TV for the back. Thanks!

    Does anyone know if this is android or anything? If it has built in apps and all?

  •  

    Thanks OP, was just shopping around for a couple of cheap TVs for the guest bedrooms, this is perfect.

    For kogan brand tv, I prefer non smart tv

  •  

    It looks exact the same as the Aldi 50" 4k TV .
    I bought the TV from aldi, main board dead at 11th month. luckily fixed under warranty.
    still working now 2 years.

    •  

      screen is good, but the speaker built in is awful.
      had to spend 300 extra bought a sony sound bar.

        A good ozbargainer would've got the YAS 108 for half that amount ;) But agree with your sentiment … i am purchasing purely for the display only as I have a separate soundbar and Mibox already.

  •  

    How would this Kogan 65 inch 4K TV compare to the 50 inch in this deal?

      About 15 inches and $320. :)

      I’d definitely go for the 65inch you linked, small price for a big upgrade

      If you've got the room, go for larger. That being said, if you are sitting 1.5 metres away then unless you want to fry your eyeballs this size suits.

    Is it a good idea for the waiting room in a clinic?

    As per specs, it supports HDMI-CEC so Chromecast can switch it on/off by talking to Google Assistant 'Ok Google, turn on TV'

    Always wondered, what is the quality of these tvs like with gaming? Purely as a random game of FIFA or new AAA title here and there sort of thing?

    •  

      PS4 recognises the HDR and looks great. PS4 Pro will run their upscaled 4k mode. No idea about xbox or pc. You'll definitely want to invest on speakers though as the sound is crap on these TVs

  •  

    Anyone have one of these series of tvs? The feedback I can find isn't very flattering at all..

    Can anyone comment on lag or motion blur when using PC input?

    • +1 vote

      I asked that in the previous thread and the only response was that it was very very high and not good for fps games.

  •  

    Hmm might be useful to build my Dreamcast arcade cabinet.

    Can you adjust/stretch the screen to fit the screen? Custom fit.

  •  

    Anyone using this or the larger ones as a PC Monitor for everything from browsing ozbargain to 4k PC gaming?

    I love my new Crossover 40 inch 4k 60hz PC monitor but man I think I can squeeze in a 55 inch or more TV in replace of it.

    Last resort upstairs needs a large sized TV but I am thinking of buying one to use with my PC.

    •  

      No but I was considering it. Wouldn't be great for competitive games though. This is only 50 inch.

      •  

        Years of gaming with high input and network lag has honestly trained me for these kind of situations.

        As long as I'm not getting above 350-400ms+ lag it should manageable for me..nothing competitive but I can do ok with some lag I have just adapted to it and learnt to live with it over the years playing on TV's and overseas servers lots of hours many times.

    •  

      With a 9.5ms response time it might be okay if you weren't playing any reaction based based (FPS' like CS:GO), would be better suited for cinematic games like Witcher

      •  

        9.5ms? Oh wow I was expecting higher that is pretty good honestly and as long as it is not too high it shouldn't be too bad.

        Mostly worried about other more specific things like chroma subsampling 4:4:4 and ability to do HDR like what level of it and any other pc monitor specialties and or advantages.

    So cheap. Even welfare recipients can afford a large 4k 10 bit TV. I think only about one third of the population in Western countries currently has a 4k screen; they are largely unnecessary at the moment since actually 4k sources are rare, but the extra colour depth will reduce banding artifacts if it is accompanied by a source that doesn't use excessive compression (eg a 4k Bluray). I have played 4k 10 bit rips x265 encoded film rips that were around 20GB in size but noticed some banding. 60 GB film rips (eg BluRay remux rather than re-encode) don't have these banding artifacts but 60GB is very large, approximately the same size as an AAA 3d game.

    •  

      I would guess these are the 8bit panels, with increased contrast/Saturation. Capable of accepting the signal, and somewhat replicating the colours.
      Like the Hisense P6 vs P7 (or was it P8).

    •  

      4k sources arent really rare, netflix, amazon, game consoles, foxtel are now all in 4k

  •  

    thanks, bought one

  •  

    Was considering the 65" as a gift for the mother in law. Priority wouldn't be for any gaming. Mainly netflix, YouTube, plex and free to air via the connected nvidia shield.

    Is the picture quality pretty good via the nvidia shield?

    Would we expect some decent quality via HDR netflix etc?

  •  

    Shipping is so expensive to my area (rural NSW) so this was a really good deal for me. Thanks

  •  

    Are these no good for gaming?
