EKO 75" 4K Ultra HD Android 10 TV with Google Assistant $899 Pickup @ BIG W

610

75" 4K Ultra HD with HDR (High Dynamic Range) @60hz panel
was $899 but then the OZB curse as they sell out! But here is the old screen capture of the price from BigW
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1hbX_l8mCN_yf0kBnbyFv8jFKheI...
Android TV 10 OS with Google Play with Chromecast
NETFLIX, AMAZON PRIME VIDEO AND YOUTUBE Pre-installed for your viewing pleasure & buttons on remote for easy access.
1.07 Billion Colours, Dimensions: With stand: 1675 (w) × 335 (d) × 1015 (h) mm & about 48kg with base.

It's $700 off RRP (UNTIL SOLD OUT) and is on runout. If you see a $799 version (was $999) It's the older WebOS version and Id avoid that for this Andriod version.
This is NOT a QLED TV but the colours looks bright and saturated. It turns on from cold ok, but off/on is from sleep mode & is very quick!
Lots of settings, built in settings are comprehensive & on the 75" the sound was amazing, even picking up Dolbyatmos streams/audio!

The bad… Well anything but HD broadcast channels suck as it has virtually no built in upscaling (unlike LG/Samsung mid-range & up models)
I did checkout the 65" QLED options around $999-1500 for 65" and went with this as 75" is just huge and streaming content looks amazing!
As I had a 2.1c single soundbar I connected it via the HDMI-ARC (audio return channel) on HDMI1 and now Volume on/off & up/down volume works from the EKO remote for the TV+AMP/Soundbar and here is a quick look of the 65" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LvUS1Pqpf8

The manual does not explain all the custom USER settings but this snapshot froma SHARP manual explains them well,

      So I just stayed up into the early hours of this morning, watching, tweaking and testing the 75" and I can yes it is!

      The single soundbar I owned turns on with the TV once I setup the HDMI controls connected components, with also V-UP/DOWN!

      Almost glad I missed out on the BigW 65" XMAS offerings now … Its exceeded my expectations with a very fast smart tv, on/off and color

    The RRP seems a bit misleading on this. According to Price Hipster Big W has been selling it for $999 for some time. Still a decent discount, but not approaching half price.

    •  

      Its on CLEARANCE and wont be discounted further I was told as its a clearance item and are at or below cost.

    • +5 votes

      Ok did some digging, the $999 75" was the previous WebOS (now $799 if they have old stock on CLEARANCE too) and not the newer Andriod10 edition thats a worthy $100 upgrade to spend on over the older version (mostly because its not an LG WebOS and its missing apps/appstore) so this is a GENUINE DISCOUNT

      •  

        Is there any picture/panel difference? I already have chromecast with GTV so don't need android TV on it, but on another TV I can't figure out how to get rid of the pesky WebOS menu when turning on.

        •  

          Best solution is to buy a ANDRIOD MEDIA BOX or STICK (like the amazon stick)

          they are sold on amazon, ebay, aliexpress ect… Vodafone was selling one but was on runout over xmas but you can ask

          The amazonAU fire stick works a treat and you can sideload anything outside the amazon app/store

            @srhardy: I picked up an amazon stick for $19 but it's really dodgy - I guess for $19 it's ok but it's a headache to use.

            Biggest issue (apart from general lag) is that every time I go to use it, the thing says I have no internet on my wifi connection. I have to swap from 5ghz to 2.4ghz (or the reverse) on every use. I use it roughly twice a week, I couldn't imagine doing that every day

    Why is this more expensive than the QLED version?

    •  

      This isnt a QLED but thats not to say that its not replced later in the year when sold out with one. I know they have smaller QLED screens but side by side a qled and this, this looked ALMOST as good. Almost but then the qled was a sony and the X1 make a difference as it does great upscaling and smoothing with colour boost/contrast.

      No. QLED do mention it. Same as the new (homebrand jbhifi/goodguys)FFALCON UF2, its just a HQ ULED SCREEN. The colours are nice and vibrant, say 95% of QLED (it does more fluro color boost so water and sky have a better than real life bling!)

        Is it really worth the money or not say vs Samsung

        • +7 votes

          Samsung (TizenOS) and LG (WebOS), v's ANDRIOD and this is Version 10. About the most recent ove seen on a new tv.

          If your paying more, look for QLED and full array back and Local Zone Dimming (new 2021 models will have micro/nano/dimming with 10000s of indepdant dimming zones. Budget $3000-$5000 for 4k and most dont have HDMI2.1 (LG NANO95/98 4k/8k does, as does the 8k TCL and both do awesome upscaling too!)

          so for 1/4 the $$$$, yes I can recommend the EKO… Look new TV comming with awesome micro backlighting, buzzillion zones and QLED with >1000nits HDR and of course brighter OLED but this EKO isnt that, but its also a fraction of the price too and its 75" and it blings enough to make me HAPPY but otherwise, checkout this;

              as for everything else. its taking up 2/3 of my loungeroom and the color bling is way better than I even hoped for! and its FAST, I can even speed up with the SMARTYOUTUBE app and its smooth playback at 1.5x speed. My old TV would play x1.10 speed and its video was jewrky!

              AMAZING for the $

        •  

          For the price its good value. The contrast ratio seems pretty ordinary So I doubt you would even notice when HDR is on for a movie. I'd hazard a guess the pic quality is around the same as my 65 inch Aldi. Usually there are codes you can enter via the controller to get into the relevant service menus used by the technicians.. Anyone figured it out yet? It should tell you the exact panel being used.

          •  

            @overkillxx: Android TVs usually have a system app called "Factory Menu" just for that. I can't find what panel it is on my 65" non-qled android EKO though.

      THE BOX SAYS DO NOT PLAY DOWN…. BUT… Thats how it got home to my place! First, they have seriously upgraded the BOX over the last version (almost twice the width, so lots of styrofoam support! So I called my brother with a TRAY back UTE and we layed it from the loading bay, SCREEN SIDE UP (the guy said, it goes this way) and we just slid it in. Didnt drive hard, it was a 20min easy drive from NorthLakes BigW to Bribie Is and you CARRY via the HAND plastic handholds and the MIDDLE of the sides (not the top)

      UNBOXING. Unboxed the remote/manual from the TOP and then removed the 4 plastic hand-holds (they pull out) and the BOX then slides UP to reveal the BASE styrofoam support. We used the styrofoam to support the SCREEN face down (make sure its even, the screen DOES NOT LIKE FLEX!) and put on the two legs. It can also put the top back screws in and attach it to a wall if its on a stand and you have kids or crazy pets!

      Run the power, plug in for the Ariel and Internet ~ moved the tape, wipe down and turn on… Settle in for the quickest and easiest setup Ive done (I setup a lot of other peoples TVs and make them look good)

      •  

        Is it wall mountable?

        Or just anchor points to prevent falling?

        •  

          I see its mountable with 600x400 vesa

      I have a cruze hatch and I decided after looking at the box to get my bro's UTE, with the large flat tray and when we slid it in I knew I made the right call as it took up a HUGE amount of available space!!! It wouod not have fitted in my midsized hatch with the back seats down and I think I might have broken the LCD (its BIG and its THIN) as it has no flex forgivness (trust me) ~ Either transport UPRIGHT (probably get it delivered or URBER something suitable) but if your going to lay down you need a TRAY/UTE (nothing with wheel archs) ~ its that big and the upgraded box and internal packing makes for an even bigger box to deal with!

  •  

    Anybody know if this TV would be okay for causal video games on ps5 or series x?

    • +5 votes

      I game. Its got HDMI 2.0 4k, so does 4k 60fps with a very quick response rate with the very fast processing, low latency setting. <10, cant give an acurate rate but A-OK for gaming on a PS4/5 or XBOX-S/X. If you gave a RTX3080 or better PC then you've spent enough to wait for 2.1 120hz 2021 launched TVs or the LG/TCL/SAMSUNG 8k's Ive listed above. 4k/60hz is perfectly fine for gaming!

      So exception is high end gaming, if your playing 8k resolution or own a 3080 or better GPU-PC then you've spent a kidney, so go sell the other one and get a 2021 or current 8k offering as it has the spec's you deserve to match your purchases (yeah, lets call it your investments)

      •  

        I have no idea what half of that means. I just want a bigger TV than a 50" 1080p Panasonic which keeps saying it's going in picture refresh mode.

        •  

          Sorry. Yes it will game but it’s a huge screen and depending on distance you have to move your head to take it all in. 65” QLED might be a better pick.

  •  

    Just purchased in Vic, Cheers. Originally had my eye on the 65" QLED but all the comments here have me convinced I won't be unhappy.

    • +3 votes

      While its not QLED (they only go to 65" at this time, but as this is on runout/clearance who knows what will replace it but Im guessing QLED) but side by side with QLED I would say its max, 10% better as the colours on this are astonishing. QLED is just a way to add some fluro bling and cleaner, filtered colours and while a huge leap over my TCL 2+ year old TV 90% better or more, its a marginal difference here. One last thought, I doubt the 75" QLED will be $900 out of the gate, the price of this was over $1500 until this sale! (it was the WebOS 75" that was $999 down to $799 on clearance) and this is worth the extra $100 any day over that!

      Make sure you turn on the HDMI control so you can have it turn on your soundbar via HDMI1-ARC, audio return & control. Then you have 1 lead, 1 remote ON for TV+SB with Volume control. Ill be posting calibrated settings for it tomorrow after testing motion and colours as Im a photographer and like rich, deep experience. So check back.

      Also screen saver on in settings and play ADB music channels on the TV and after 5min you get a slide show of art thats amazing to watch with ABC/SBS msuic/radio playing… Even the built in sound, has DOLBY SOUND & VISION with surround and its bloody good for a TV (prob, Im guessing because of the size they had room for decent speakers and I cant fault it). But I do like my soundbar but its a cheapie ($120-140 delivered 2.1) and its a small step up IMO for music mostly. Movies and TV sound good on either the built in or the SB

        Love your work mate, I look forward to your colour settings.
        Currently going to test it without a sound bar, see how it goes. Otherwise I'll be getting a sub $200 one. Hopefully won't need to though.
        Keen to install Kodi on it, fingers crossed it goes alright. I've had no problems with Kodi on my new Chromecast so I'm optimistic 😁

    hi guys I have an old tv without any of the smart features. was just wondering does this tv use Google Play and can it download .apks from chrome? I basically wanna download YouTube vanced and get it going on this tv if possible

    • +1 vote

      You can sideload things onto Android TVs if you want.

      The other EKO TVs use Google Play.

      I did it on the Vodafone TV box, and also my EKO TV (I downloaded "Smart Youtube TV", and now it's successor, "SmartTubeNext" which I assume are kinda like "Vanced" but actually designed for TV interfaces).

      I sent an APK from my phone to TV by installing "Send Files to TV" which you'll need on your phone and TV.

      Or, you can enable the Developer Options in Android TV and send apks from a computer and install them from there via the command line… but it's a little more advanced and currently probably unnecessary.

      •  

        I use Smart YouTube TV, love the no-ads! I wish I could use the voice search on it like with the actual YouTube app though. What's the difference with SmartTubeNext?

        I wish you can re-assign the YouTube button on the remote to launch the Smart versions instead too.

        •  

          Smart Tube Next is by the same developer, but apparently it's the project that he'll focus on going forward.

          It's not perfect yet, but it's already pretty good - have a go! You can run both Smart Tube and Smart Tube Next at the same time if you want - they're separate apps!

    Adaptive Luma ~ Control Medium (or LOW)

    SPDIF/AUTO (just makes sure the audio out encoding is understood and supported by the amp/SB)
    Delay/0 (can be used to sync lips and audio if out due to encoding errors of the original stream)
    Audio Type/Normal (option for the visually impaired)

    Can anyone comment on the maximum width between the outside of the stand legs?

    Total width of the TV is 1675mm, but the edge of the stand legs is a bit inside of that.

    Have a 1500mm wide TV stand, that might just be accommodate the legs in a squeak (if they are just 90mm in from the edge of the TV), but just trying to confirm.

      140cm from stand to stand using the old trusty, Stanley builders tape measure. Hope that helps and yes its 20cm inside either edge of the screen

        Is that 140cm from where the legs fit to the tv, or the maximum width the legs span when sitting on the cabinet (sorry to ask, but my cabinet top is 140cm wide, so touch and go if it will fit).

        •  

          I am wondering the same. It would be great if @srhardy or anyone wjo owns this TV can measure distance from end of one leg to another and confirm if it is 140cm edge to edge. Then it will fit 140cm wide TV stand.

        290w PSU to power it at turn on. Running the label had 4.5*/5 whatever that means. Its cheap to run 24/7 if you only like your TV off when the power goes out.
        They have made these very power efficient, way way way better than my 2 year old TCL was for sure! Running it would be <30watts + your SoundBar if you use one and any media player or gaming machine like xboX or PS3/4/5

    Edit - Did anyone get a screenshot?

  •  

    Showing $999 for me (WA)?

  • +2 votes

    also $999 now in NSW. Here is I think what happened.
    I had looked at this previously when the Android TV 9.0 version (and different picture, feet, etc.) Eko releases new models but uses the previous model number like 750USG (did this on the non android 75 and the 65 as well). The listing internal BigW item number matches the old ATV 9.0 version So that pricing was likely when they were clearing that model. Now they've updated the listing with the pics of the new version, but the internal stock number and Eko model number are same as old one. As now a 'new' unit - looks like $999 is the price and not clearance as this is the new version.

  •  

    For those that have this TV, can I ask 2 questions please?

    1. Is the screen on this a matte or gloss finish? The TV would be in a room with some windows, so a matte finish would help reduce reflections for me.

    2. Is the FTA TV guide friendly to use? For example, I have the 58” Aldi QLED tv bought from last year and while I’m happy with it overall, I find the guide a little annoying. When I’m in the TV guide and scrolling, and I decide on a channel, I need to press the “guide” button again just to exit the guide.
