    I picked up the EKO Frameless 75' Android TV a couple of months back (different to this one) and after ironing out a few issues, it works great. Price was around $800 after discounts

      what sorts of issues you had to deal with?

    •  

      Same boat, very happy with the purchase. Dispite the backlight bleed on the outer end

    •  

      The frameless is newer?

      no deal. spend it on something that works

      Looks like theyre all bitching about the smart tv aspect which is expected. Buy a new google cast thingo that has its own OS and youll have a good combo. I did the same with my aldi 65"

        They are talking about 4K support, TV stopped working, watermark on the screen… Nothing really much on Smart TV. They are also taking about customer support which crap…

        Here they are:

        • 3 weeks later we have lost the picture
        • TV is 2 days old, Watermark has appeared and won’t go away
        • was Delivered in February 2020…. Failed in April 2020 after 6 weeks
        • Brought it from Big W for $950 on the 16th of june and it only lasted till 23rd of Aug screen faded to black and Will not work at all
        • purchased 25/7 and returned it a week later. did not work at all. horrendous customer service, no help at all from EKO
        • Doesn’t play 4K via Xbox One
        • Have had my tv for 3 weeks was working fine now wont turn at all
        • I have an error on the screen saying, “in order to remove this watermark, please contact MediaTek Inc”

          Either unlucky or its a bad tv. Im not sure. Worst case if it fails you have local support and can easily return it.

            @HKS: I think he's referring to multiple reviews with those dot points. I don't mind a cheap telly but ehhhh not worth the potential pain in the recto to many.

          These are a new model so comments are partially relevant but not exactly.

          •  

            @Duff5000: many of the comments were within last 2 weeks. I don't think model is newer than that :)

            •  

              @wrx5: The model number on the review page is the old one.

              edit: new and old use the same model number which is dumb. Every spec is different but they kept the same model number?

              https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:aAd8CA...

              The reviews mention the google assist, which this one doesn't have.

              I can't find anyone selling them before this week. Until today they were 1499. I doubt many people bought them at that price.

              Every one of your quotes looks to be the old one. No 4k on xbox is most likely a setting not a fault. Had that issue on my old smart tv.

        Yeah I kind of agree with you.
        Buy a Chromecast and problem solved.
        I have a 2 year old Sony UHD Android TV. It started slowing down a bit recently after a couple of upgrades. I've bought a latest Chromecast in case one day I feel it's too much pain dealing with the smart system.

      Inbuilt android tv is always crap. The cpu in Tv's are never enough to run the OS fast enough. You'll be constantly fighting with the tv to get what you want. Purchase a chromecast or google tv. MUCH better.

      •  

        that's true, but isn't tcl three years warranty outweight this?

        •  

          Is TLC the only one with a 3 year warranty? That's pretty good. Could be worth it just for that.

        • +1 vote

          They do have good warranties but the TV's are hit and miss. The repair fellow came to my house like 3 times over a few months before I finally got a TV that was working and they ended up upgrading it to the Android model of the same size for free. I had lines through the first panel which was totally replaced, then I had an IR sensor fail which was replaced on the spot. I can't remember what the other problem was. In the end the fellow gave me his number and told me about one customer he has who just claims a warranty every year and gets a free upgrade.

          •  

            @AngryAlfred: Damn..thats good to know lol

        •  

          Any tv like this is going to be covered by more than a year. You might not get in home after 12 months but bigw would still honour the warranty for at least 2-3 years.

      •  

        The Sony X9000H is very, very zippy with Android TV.

      •  

        This is what I thought too after a terrible experience with another product - but I purchased an EKO Android TV recently and it's actually quite good that I ended up decommisioning my actual Chromecast. And I've heard the Sony's are quite solid too.

    I got a 70" model in the previous Big W day sale. It runs in Android and overall is pretty impressive. Sound is better than my dead SONY 65" and I only adjusted colors.
    Not sure about this 75" model though.

    I fail to see how this was originally worth $1499. Perhaps that's why it didn't sell much.

  • +1 vote

    i got the 50 inch version of this tv for my garage. This is a garage tv and not a living room tv. Your eyes and time are way too precious to waste on this. Save up and buy an oled tv or Qled tv. Don’t cheap out on your main screen please. I like my 1080p benq w1090 picture way better than this one.

    •  

      I see. My Kogan 43 inch 4K JU8000 (with LG panel) probably looks better than this.

      I guess that's what happens when you buy a generic TV with a no name generic screen panel.

      •  

        The 65 had/has a Samsung panel apparently. Using one as our main and the picture is excellent.

  •  

    Says page not found for me. Is it not available in qld?
    I don't want one, just saying

  •  

    Do big w stores let you pick up the tv from their loading dock?

    •  

      Yep

      Buy 80 Swap cards this week and get this for free?

      •  

        Potentially free, yes! But who want to end up with $8000 worth of gift cards?

        •  

          The problem would be to find those 80 cards.

  •  

    Only 12 month warranty on these? The reviews so far aren’t very reassuring to take the risk

    •  

      my thoughts exactly big risk if you only get 12 months out of it. Hisense for an extra 200-300 or TCL with a 3 year warranty for a 65" or 70"

      •  

        There’s also no in home warranty from what I’ve read on the EKO website. Any issues, you have to take it to a service centre

        • +3 votes

          Just take it back to the store and get a refund.

    •  

      This is a new model so I don't think you will find reviews yet. Bigw would cover your warranty for longer than 12 months.

      • +1 vote

        The model is the K750USN. Listed on EKO’s website as their new model. Also the same model in product review.

        Bit of a pain in the ass to have to return a 75” TV within 12 months if something was to go wrong.

        You say BigW would cover you but imagine the headache trying to pull the consumer rights card.

  •  

    Amazing price for a 75"
    Now that stock seems to be flooding in of all of the cheap brands (more evident with the amount of $599 65" models at the moment) I suspect we'll see some great deals in the Boxing day sales as retailers try to clear excess stocks.

              •  

                @Jinnyboy: Confirmed with a measuring tape for the other guy, but not mounting mine to a wall, instead using the supplied little (but sturdy) legs.
                Pretty happy with the quality vs. cost so far, only using HDMI1 as a dumb TV so skipping all the Android/tuner/networking stuff and using a AV receiver for sound.

    Trust me this TV is the real deal. It absolutely slays my Samsung 65" 4K NU8000 that got glowing reviews (I purchased that for over $3000 18 months ago).

    I haven't even touched the picture settings as they are so good out of the box, especially the HDR Standard mode when playing HDR content. The sound is brilliant…so much louder than any other TV I've owned and the UI is pretty good. For $799 it's highway robbery.

    Only negative is the remote feels a little cheap and the buttons are a tad spongey…but it does let you setup your mobile as a remote if you wish.

    I HIGHLY recommend this TV.

      Would you happen to know if it can do 4k at 60hz? Wondering how this TV would look with the ps5, seems like a ripper deal 😁

        This version…the latest one. It has LG WebOS

        •  

          Thanks Mate. I will be picking one today. Did you tweak color or any other settings?
          Does this have disney plus and kayo?

          • +1 vote

            @andrewsaws: I always tweak my tvs but this is the first one I haven't. I am using Auto mode (when not watching HDR) and I use HDR Standard mode when watching HDR. Don't know if I'm getting less fussy with age but it just looks brilliant straight out of the box. The speaker really packs a punch too…that surprised me.

            No the apps are not as good as my Samsung, or the lack of apps I should say. It has Netflix, Stan, Amazon Video, YouTube, ABC, SBS, 9Now, Foxtel built in but there's not much in the content store. So no Disney and no Kayo…not sure if that will come in a future update. Doesn't phase me as I have Chromecast Ultra plugged in so its just a matter of casting my phone, which is so easy and painless and works excellent.

            •  

              @Agent009: How is Free to Air regular TV channels on it?

    •  

      I like their simple remote. Unused buttons on many of my complex remotes only accumulate dust.

  •  

    Thanks for your detailed reply.I will probably use chromecast ultra as well. Its weird that there is disney plus on new LG tvs but not on this one.

    •  

      Yes that is true. I think it will possibly come in an update as its running firmware from 2019 even though this is a new model. My Samsung only got Kayo and Disney via an update around 6 months ago.

      Chromecast ultra is only $70 anyway so its a no brainer.

    Just picked this tv up and it is really big. Did click and collect, went to the service desk, they ran it through and told me to go to the dock to pick it up. We only just managed to fit in between the wheel hubs on my utes tub. Had to hang it over the back. Heres a couple pics:

    https://photos.app.goo.gl/mWSyMwQzEfYuLD5c8

    The interface is very nice for a cheap TV. probably because its done by LGs webOS. Beats my 65" Sony X7000Es interface for sure.

    I run my TV off a media PC, so hooked both TVs to the same HDMI sources for a comparison (gfx card has 2 HDMI outs) and set windows to duplicate the displays. There is a noticeable mouse lag on the EKO tv in all picture modes, except for 'Game mode', then there is no noticeable lag (same feel as the Sony), so it should be fine for gaming.

    I dare say it, but the blacks and colors are as clear or clearer than my Sony TV (Sony TV is 2.5 years old however). No bleeding or un-uniform color. Really digging it.

    The only thing I need to sort out is audio working on the ARC hdmi channel to my speaker setup. I select ARC on the tv and there is no sound coming out of my speaker setup. Hopefully its not too difficult to sort out.

    @Agent009 wasnt lying when he said this is an amazing deal. The picture is really good, and the on screen interface is slick (even if the remote is a little small).

    •  

      Great comment. Thanks.

      Can you play 4K videos and give some feedback?

      Also, in darker rooms which one would you prefer this or the Sony?

      • +2 votes

        Hi, I've been playing around with the TV for a little.

        • For the life of my I can not get sound over ARC hdmi working. I have a sony soundbar/subwoofer. ARC seems to be working: turn the tv on/off, soundbar turns on/off, mute and change volume in the TV, soundbar display says mute / volume changes. but there is NO FRIGGEN SOUND &^%$*(#$(%(#@. No idea how to fix this.
        • I'd prefer the sony over this in light rooms as the EKO has a shiny reflection coating and refelects off the windows during the day. The finish on the panel is just more glass like/reflective than my sony, although not completely glass like (not as bad as say a plasma tv).
        • In a dark room this TV wins hands down.
        • Im a little unsure in saying this but I think my sony had better blacks in movies. Unsure if this is fact or not, as I have not yet messed around with the brightness/contrast.
        • In the settings you can also control the backlight as a separate slider option to brightness and contrast (plus the other color temperature settings). I've never seen backlight as an option. I'll have to have a bit of a play around to give a better answer on the colors.
        • My tv is connected via my pc at 4k @ 60hz, with HDR enabled in windows & showing on the TV as enabled. Had a few issues at the start but that was due to a dodgey HDMI cable.
        • +2 votes

          Hey mate, yep this tv is insane for the price! I'm loving it and the colours are so good. 4K HDR content is especially good in HDR Vivid or HDR Standard mode. I have a darkish room and I literally cannot fault the picture. Black levels are good….yeah they are not OLED level of course, but they are great. I watched Fury on Netflix yesterday and it was so good on this panel.

          I have found the sound a bit hit and miss since my first little review about. When playing music/sounds, the sound is fantastic from the built in speakers…blows my Samsung out of the water. But with movies, some of the dialogue is a little muffled. Didn't bother me too much but it annoyed my wife. However a cheap soundbar would fix that.

          In regards to your HDMI ARC soundbar issue, assuming you have changed the sound output settings?

          •  

            @Agent009:

            In regards to your HDMI ARC soundbar issue, assuming you have changed the sound output settings?

            Yeah. The soundbar & TV think they are working together fine (change volume or press mute on the tv remote, sound bar display says mute / changes volume), there is no actual sound coming through though.

            Considering getting a new sound bar vs returning the TV.

              •  

                @UnciasDream: Nice. Do you remember the order you turned the devices on after reset? (TV ARC mode then turned soundbar on, or other way around?).

                  @morebunnings: From memory it automatically detected and turned on HDMI ARC as an audio source. Seems to be solid.

                  •  

                    @UnciasDream: Well, I am glad to report that putting a new HDMI 2.0 cable in fixed the ARC issue.

                    Seems my old Sony TV had no problem running the ARC over an older HDMI cable while receiving a 4k/hdr/60hz signal.

                    This TV however needed a higher quality cable to run the audio back to the subwoofer.

                    This article has a good table on cable speeds:

    Anybody has edge backlight bleeding issue with this particular TV? Mine one has quite obvious backlight bleeding at two side edges. Possible one stuck pixel at upper middle of the screen as well
