    What is screen cast

    •  

      Chromecasting/Airplay equivelant. ie connect your phone or ipad to the same wifi network as your tv and cast it onto your TV

      •  

        i guess your phone or ipad screen remains on while it does the screen cast?

        •  

          Not sure with this but with chromecast you can carry on doing other things on your phone while is casts to the TV in the background.

        •  

          Yeah I think it’s just screen mirroring, and only supported on Android, and third-party MAC and PC software (I think I remember it’s part of the OS now - used to be just select devices)

    Kogan First in not applicable for this? Delivery is still added at check-out.

    This is an excellent TV for this price. I've had mine for almost a year now. PS4 recognises HDR, screencast is great. It is slow with the in-built browsing of web tv though. This was also the only 55" TV I found at the time that was 6 star energy rated. You will need a sound bar of course which does negate the energy rating but that's normal for most TV's like this.

      does the smart apps, etc part of the tv lag?

      •  

        Yes the 9Now, 7Plus, 10Play, iView etc are all pretty slow to browse and start but once the show gets going it's OK. You can select a favourites list to speed it up a bit. I don't have Netflix so can't comment on what that's like. Screencast works well with an android device or windows laptop but I believe it's not iOS/Mac compatible. You'll probably want an external device if you watch a lot of catch up tv online.

      Exact same model? The Samsung panel? MU8010?

      •  

        Mine is KALED55MU8010SZA. I think the new one is SZB. Not sure what the difference is there, seems to be all same features and energy rating.

        •  

          Yeah looks to be the exact same model just probably a different batch date, sweet. I pulled the trigger, looking forward to it. Have you noticed any blur when watching action movies or is it nice and smooth?

  •  

    hmm $100 more for the 58"

  •  

    This is the standard sale price for the non-smart 55" TV, so there is value, but if it's anything like the 75" panel, the motion blur is an issue for fast paced content.

    From what I understand however, their smart TV performance is worth avoiding.

    Stay away from Kogan if you can.

    They just won a Shonky award for "creating a returns system from hell"

      That's weird, i've been using their monitors for 5 years now (24" 1080p, 144hz 1080p, 27' 1440p's, and ultrawides all for PC's in my house and Xbox) and have returned one when I broke it myself. They sent me a new one the next day without issues and once I set it up, I was able to return my broken one in the box free of charge. It was a perfect returns experience and I have never had a single issue with any of their monitors…

    This is an excellent TV for this price.. I have a similar one and have been using it since 7 yrs now..Great TV and great quality and Audio is crap for sure.. You may need a sound bar

  •  

    I bought a Kogan LCD tv back in 2009/10 and it is still going strong, except the remote stopped working early this year.

    I wonder if the TV quality is still the same?

  •  

    damn i missed it.. for those that missed this there is an ALDI special on soon? but i think 50inch for around $400

  •  

    It was same price last year on this date, yearly promo?

      Yeah I linked to that in my above comment. Seems to be! I couldn't be bothered to wait another year for it so I found a 58" JVC 4K for $399 @ Big W. It's dumb, doesn't support HDR nor 4k@60Hz but whatever, it'll do as a replacement for my recently dead TCL 50" that's almost 5 years old.

    What's with the standard of saying where a TV is good for? It's only good for a spare room? So it's only good for guests?
