  • How are these Eko TV's for gaming?

  • Keen to hear feedback from anyone who got one of these on the last deal?

    Also how is the audio quality? I'm not expecting much, but would prefer to avoid a sound bar for a spare room TV if possible.

    • It reviews very well.

      The audio output was mentioned as being decent, which is good news as that's the weakness in these cheaper sets.

      • That's not a review for the QLED frameless model.

        I've got the 65" QLED frameless however and I have had no problems. For this price it's a great tv. Can't comment on audio though because I have a sound bar setup with it.

    • I got one today @ $649.

      First impressions…using as android TV + connected to my HTPC.
      Win 10 picked it up no worries with [email protected] max refresh.
      8 bit only though. lower resolutions/hz showed a 12 bit panel.
      This might be a function my graphics card + 5m HDMI cable . dunno ???

      Android TV setup & runs fine (not much testing yet) same as my Android Hisense 65RG in my living room
      Blacks/colours seem better than my old Hisense 65RG (its bad)
      After I play with RGB, brightness , gamma and contrast I reckon I can get it even better.
      Screen reflection are noticeable bad. probably avoid if you wanna use with bright windows behind ya. non issue for me.

      Sound is GARBAGE!! sounds like a tinny mono speaker
      I ran one of those 20hz to 28000hz Youtube tests
      I heard nothing until like 100hz ! Then the sound again disappeared again at the high end.
      Dog was not happy about sound test above 16khz hehe
      Its got ARC on HDMI1 so I'll be getting a cheap ARC soundbar for it.

      I'm happy for $650 picked up on the spot in store today.
      It was marked $1049 staff were making a bit of a deal about selling it to me for the sale price.
      A non-retarded staff member eventually came along and looked up the promotion online and put it through @$649.

  • It's been that price since it was first released. Waiting for the 65inch for that price.

  • Just an amateur question - what is the benefit of frameless? I would've thought that having a frame at the same distance as the TV you are looking at provides a better perspective for your eyes to focus - any thoughts??

    • It still has a "frame" under the glass. It just doesn't have a traditional plastic/whatever frame around it.

      • It actually does. The frameless crap is bs. The plastic frame is just thinner than usual. I got my mate this one and the frame is like 8mm where as my older model which is also 65" but not QLED is around 11mm from memory.

  • Is anyone actually seeing stock for these? I can't get online with delivery or C&C here in Vic.

  • Isn't QLED a LG panel behind the screen?

    • QLED is used by Samsung i dont know if they own the trademark or IP on it .. OLED is LG

  • Very nice price.
    Does anyone know if I'd get a better deal on another tv around this price during the the Black Friday sales?
    Or just pull the trigger on this one?

  • I brought this TV today, haven't tested it yet but at Big W Townsville they also had a 65" for $635 for the ones wondering. I was abit confused because all the signage is UHD LED but the box has 4k.

        excuse copy and paste of my above comment.

        • Wow I was expecting something along the lines of "is good" or "meh" or "is bad", thanks for the detail
          I'm in the market for a new 55" TV, will run new google chromecast TV and separate speaker system so these worries not too bad for me

          Sounds like a good buy for your typical netflix/youtube etc user? Can't see much else that would top it in this price range and I don't want to spend double on OLED

  • Happy with mine, blacks on an led and thin
