    If all I want is a TV to plug a chromecast and some $100 edifier speakers into, is this an OK choice? I don't care about much at this price except that it works.

      Not much more than a used one on Gumtree, but new with warranty 🙂

        Yep, the price looks killer, as long as it's not a complete lemon.

      I reckon. I've had a Soniq 48" FHD for about 4-5 years. Used daily and still does the job.

      Linking Channel News is not a good idea.
      The website owner is biased against brands that he does not represent.
      he owns a PR company that represents Samsung and others in Australia

      •  

        It doesn't change the facts that there was a dummy spit by JB and Soniq was closely associated with retailing the brand.

        Maybe Channel News should disclose any conflict of interest as a footnote…

        • +1 vote

          Soniq is actually having huge success on Amazon now
          so in a way JB dropping them was not all bad.

          • +1 vote

            @jimbobaus: Oh, good to hear…

            JB once sold me a Soniq HD for the price of an SD (by mistake) and it worked for some years.

        Also, hates Sonos with a passion, as far as I can figure out it was because he was banned from their media lists for publishing leaked info, which Sonos requested be removed.

        •  

          I don't think I can afford Sonos…

        • +3 votes

          this

          100% he was always raving about Sonos until they removed them from his list.
          him being classified as media is a very loose term anyways.
          Most of what he posts is either him pushing his agenda or bagging out brands who are competitors to his own customers.

          For example Alcatel Aus is his PR companies customer
          and every article he writes about them raves about how good they are and how bad Oppo or Huawei is in comparison.

      •  

        He's also outrageously anti-anything China. I'm no supporter of by any means, but some of the articles I've come across are littered with borderline hate-speech (along with spelling/grammatical errors).

        I do find it humorous that Soniq has been reduced to selling through post shops after spending years having to sell the rubbish at JB.
        Edit - Just noticed the comment about success on Amazon - guess they're still doing alright.

        •  

          Funniest article i read was when his internet got cut off for some reason and he went on and on about how bad Telstra is.. and managed to squeeze in how they use Huweai modems for their 4G broadband etc

        •  

          The spelling errors, grammer errors, and general poor quality of writing really sums up that site.

          That said, one of the few sites that might cover consumer electronics retail in any level of insight.

    Would this be good for someone who just wants a tv for the (enclosed) al fresco to watch the footy on?

    •  

      I'd also like to know this…

      • +3 votes

        i'd say yes personally, but depends on expectations. if you're used to a 65" 4k UHD QLED then probably not.

    •  

      I wouldn’t spend more on a outside television

    • +2 votes

      I've got a Soniq TV in the al fresco - works great but about a hundred tiny little flies have made their graveyard between the glass and the picture panel.

      I'm just working up the motivation to open it up and try blasting them out with compressed air….

    •  

      Why does the (enclosed) Al fresco want to watch the footy?

      Is the (enclosed) Al fresco having some other Al frescoes over for a party?

      It's probably ok, but ensure all the (enclosed) Al fresco guests practise safe social distancing.

  •  

    Can i watch netflix on this?

    •  

      you will need a chromecast or the like
      This TV is not a smart TV

      •  

        It plays Youtube.

        •  

          Smart enough

    I do not recommend buying this TV here. The TV I ordered was delivered but it had a cracked screen. There is no support for replacement nor a free return available. I would buy it from eBay for the buyer protection

    •  

      It seems like it is online ordering only.
      I'd pass.

    Will this make a good laptop external monitor?

    • +3 votes

      couldn't really recommend this. sitting closer to a FHD 40" screen using as a computer monitor it would get pixelated/blurry.
      that combined with it being a budget TV the response time would be high and potentially a bit laggy with input on the laptop.

      for sitting back and watching a movie it will be great. for working, get an adjustable 24" computer monitor.

    Last soniq TV I bought we had to return because the colors were all washed out and really, really crap - and that was a 65" 4K model too, not that I could really get anything to work in 4K because it wasn't a true 4K panel - the whole things was a huge disaster and we ended up swapping for a Hisense and never looked back. Maybe they've got better over the last 2 years and that's no longer an issue but for anything more serious that just the odd video in 480p I wouldn't recommend - though at this size perhaps the issues we had would be less noticeable.

        Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'd hazard a guess and say they used their eyes… as in they were at the PO.

        •  

          lol sorry
          Yes they were on display at Neeta City Shopping Centre Branch

  •  

    Thanks, ordered one.

  •  

    How does this compare to say FFalcon 40"?

    •  

      I would like to know as well. Currently considering a cheap 1080 TV for the garage, don’t need smart features as I’ll be using a Chromecast.

      •  

        garage

        Why does your car need a tv?

  •  

    My local PO have Thomson TVs for about that much. Don't know how good they are. but for a 1 person, 4 TVs is enough lol. Already got a 65" coming.

    For anyone interested, theres a 65" Soniq on JB hifi for 495 but it's an exdisplay. There was a 55" exdisplay for $250.00 the other day but it looks like it was bought.

    Be aware the quality on these can be bad. Bought mine last sale and it had dark smear lines out of the box. only noticeable on darker colours and I couldn't be bothered sending it back even if I could get a replacement.

      Exact the same with mine x2

    Grandma goes to Australia Post to buy some stamps and comes back with a 40" TV!

  •  

    Im still disappointed that in 2020 these TVs still dont come with hdmi cec. Would buy in a heartbeat if it did.

  •  

    I have a soniq 40" I bought years ago. Based on that I wouldn't touch them so unless they have improved I would not do it. Screen is ok as a bedroom tv but everything else is plain BAD.

    • Remote sucks - having to press the power button 50 times to get it to respond. Tried a 3rd party remote and it's just as bad, must be the ir receiver.
    • EPG - Completely useless
    • Startup time is ~10 seconds even though it's not a smart tv??
    • menus are slow even though it's very basic
    •  

      I haven't seen your first point on these, so perhaps they've fixed that, the EPG too works just fine.
      Does still take ages to switch on (relatively) and menus are still slow

  •  

    Looks like they've moved the expected shipping date from July 31st to August 7th.

  •  

    Currently considering a cheap 1080 TV for the garage, don’t need smart features as I’ll be using a Chromecast this Soniq TV has optical out so I connect a sound bar via optical to the TV and then plug the Chromecast into a HDMI port? I’d like another Soniq as my 42” Soniq is about 15 years old and still working well.
