        i have this TV. it is not smart TV just a built in chrome cast which is buggy as hell.

        •  

          oh, well either way if you just compare it as a dumb tv you still save a bit with free delivery + cashback.

        •  

          built in chrome cast which is buggy as hell.

          I've got a Sony with the same problem.
          I added a Chromecast ultra. Works a treat.

        the Soniq has no HDR. Plus the quality is shit.

        •  

          yeh its pretty shit. 4K is not 100HZ "Fully compatible" its the bs soap opera effect and implemented badly.

          it only runs real 30hz at 4k

        •  

          You won't have HDR worth using on a TV below $1500. Peak brightness falls well short of HDR standards and I'd guess this screen is edge lit anyway.
          Some people have told me there are slight benefits of purely being "compatible", but I can't remember what they were.

          •  

            @SKobb: So the Hisense series with HDR that is regularly much cheaper than $1500, have bad HDR?

            •  

              @Frayin: @Frayin Obviously that would exclude their OLEDs which have been crazy cheap the last few months.
              I had a look at their website and can't find any actual info on peak brightness, FALD, backlight tech for their R7 and R8 series so I'm unsure.

    This tv plus a android tv box, would recommend Vodafone TV and your sweet. It's got a game mode as well so should be fine with less input lag.

    •  

      Yea, it's incredibly slow to boot up, and really slow to do simple things like changing inputs/stations/pulling up guide etc. But if it doesn't phase you then decent for the price!

      •  

        Do you know if this TV has a standby mode that's faster to wake from, or if it's "slow to boot up" every time?

        I have an old Soniq and it takes 30s to boot up. No standby mode. 30s to turn on every time. Never want to make that mistake again 😂

          I've looked and I can't see any setting. I would imagine if it existed it would be on by default. It's the slowest TV I've ever used. And the colours are terrible. I should have just bought a second hand set that's better quality.

            @onlinepred: Good to know - I'll steer clear!!

            I was considering it because I've used a Kogan TV in a motel before and it was perfectly fine (turned on instantly, decent picture). It was a "smart" model, but I didn't expect this "dumb" model to be slower to turn on. They must just have standby on the "smart" ones or something =/

            Anyway, thanks for steering me away from it. Two slow TV's would drive me insane.

            @onlinepred: Thats what I told someone recently who said my tv was too expensive on gumtree. He compared my high end samsung 40" that cost 2k new with a kogan tv he could get brand new now.. I wish this thread was around last week. I tried to tell him that a 2grand 40" screen from about 6yrs ago is going to beat most budget tv's made today especially in features but he was having none of it lol.

    Got this two years ago at the same price - fantastic TV :)

    Who is their TV panel supplier?

    Delivery to WA metro is $43.99 for those interested.

    •  

      $103.99 to Mandurah, WA. What a bunch of sh*t. It's like Bunnings charging $90 to deliver something local & Ikea in Perth, over 100kms away, delivering for $70.

  •  

    This is so cheap for the size & decent reviews.

    Only problem is the 60hz refresh. Are there any good ones with a slightly higher refresh? We'd be using it mainly for Chromecast/Youtube, PS3, & watching some movies occasionally from USB.

    Anyone here have this model who can speak to this?

    Ta!

  •  

    I would like to use this TV to watch Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon prime. Does this TV have it built in or I have to buy chrome cast? Thanks!

  •  

    Do you know for this large size item, what delivery method will Kogan use?

    Also, my TV cabinet is only 100cm wide while the distance between legs of this one is 112.5cm, do you know if I can place the TV directly on my cabinet without attaching the legs? Thanks.

  •  

    Anyone know if this would quality for free shipping with Kogan First? Could get free trial for 14days and save yourself the delivery fee.

    Tick the trial box and see the total before making payment.

    Im looking for a 40-55 inch tv in the budget range that's going to have no motion blur, that's nice and bright and has a good response time when changing channels. Something I can watch the current crop of action movies without having to go back and rewatch scenes in slow-motion… I don't do much 4K but do want UHD resolution for sorting pics on my pc…
    There are some excellent comments here and I'm hoping someone can help me.

    •  

      Netflix capable, with 4k is easy.
      Kayo/Stan/Disney+ is not as simple.

      Clear action and motion is going to be better on a QLED, but that'd be a large bump in price for contrast and HDR.

      A decent Tuner is going to be expensive, because it bumps up the price and specs to get a TV that works quickly and changes channels requires a faster processor. The hardware might be good, but the software to get Australian Support might not exist, ie getting channel 9 HD audio (AC3) to work is a common glitch with cheap TV's.

      I would probably recommend Samsung over Hisense if you need TV and sport as a priority. Sony, LG as well. Hisense is capable, but it needs to be demonstrated/ seen in person to know where & what the difference(s) are.

      But UHD res for photos, do you want to run this as a monitor or as a slideshow / chromecast?

      If you can demo/try the hisense, or look for a review to see how fast the channel changes are, this is somewhat typical of the Chinese OEM TV's like the Kogan.

    Still wondering. The "seems too good to be true" keeps popping up. We only watch occasional USB TV or Chromecast. Have a MMC PC but really we're nerds locked in our chairs- lol.

    Is it good or trash?

    ta!
