    60hz refresh?

        I'm sure you weren't saying that when 60hz used to be the max refresh rate on TVs

    I assume you have to queue/camp the night before to get the TV.

    Probably stores will have only 2 or 3 TVs to sell.

    • +3 votes

      It will probably be like the last special buy Aldi had for caravan & camping stuff recently….stores won't have anything!

      I went to 4 different stores looking for caravan stuff and none of them received any stock of the 3 items I was looking for on behalf of a family member who recently purchased a caravan.

        Aldi has been struggling to get specials to the stores in time since TP crisis. those highly sought after items are likely to be delayed for a couple of weeks so your best bet is to revisit them weekly. I often get most of the stuff i wanted after a couple of weeks.

        Yeah best to use the messenger app for stock-checks on any special buys before going in to store IMO.

        •  

          What messenger app?

          • +10 votes

            @muzzamo: It's a bot chat on facebook messenger. If you are using facebook messenger, then search for ALDI. There will be onscreen instructions on how to search for stock.

            Another option is going to this page, https://www.stockcheck.aldi.com.au/

          •  

            @muzzamo: Aldi Australia on Facebook messenger. It lets you do stock checks for special buys within 20kms of your postcode.

              @PainToad: Completely unreliable and inaccurate from my experience.
              Stock was right there in front of me at my local store, and yet the app was telling me none left anywhere in VIC.

          They have moved the stock checker to their own website:

      Standard Alsdi scamming with only 2 or 3 TVs. I'd rather use a Goodguys commercial login and find a Hisense or TCL for a few Bob more. Least I have a legit warranty. Probably even go the TCL for AndroidTV. I do have webOS on my LG OLED which is good, much better than Samsung bloat but use a NVIDIA shield for all apps.

      I've never seen RAM or Internal Memory mentioned on a TV description, because it doesn't matter. Go have a look at any TV website and they also won't mention it - LGs pages for their top of the range OLED tv's have zero mention of RAM or storage.

      Ram is internal memory…

      It interesting that you can use the "LG ThinQ App" to control the TV. Does that mean its an LG panel?

      • +3 votes

        No, it just means they've licensed WebOS from Lg to use in this television.

          Webos is great on TVs.

          It was pretty good back in the touchpad days too.

      It lacks 7Plus, 10Play, Disney+ and Kayo (the latter not yet on any WebOS TV) – but 9Now, Stan, Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube and many more are there.

      I'd hardly call that a preview. It basically covers stated specs with some extra fluff words around to make it into an essay. There are photos so he actually has a unit, but it's an opportunity wasted. No comparison measurements, no real words about actual picture quality. Perhaps a comparison to a better known tv would have been better.

    It also uses LG's "Magic Remote" which is like computer mouse. I love that one.

            @jv: You are right. I did see different brands that they sold in the past .

            I am not closely following so I can be wrong but Bauhn is the only TV brand they sell these days. Or that's what I always come across. So when I see TV on ALDI's website that's the first thing I do to jump on to Bauhn website.

    How many nits brightness? If it's not much, the HDR will be next to useless and/or if using in a room that you don't want to have to keep shutting curtains every time you use the TV.

        I get that.

        Just pointing it out to those who might not be aware and get excited by "HDR" feature. This won't really work very well if the peak brightness is poor.

        •  

          You kinda want zoned backlighting too, unless it’s an exceptional quality display.

      • +3 votes

        I know it's not quite the same thing but my 4k $750 Hissence has been the best TV ever, way better than $2000 LGs. It seems that this TV is surprisingly good, just lacking in blacks and refresh rate.

          •  

            @bOngOCaT: Can you add apps to it? The last aldi "smart" tv I bought you could not and we use disney+ a lot so it's quite necessary for me.

              • +12 votes

                @b2dz: I agree. I don't buy any TV based on how 'smart' it is. Just plug in an external device, much better. I'd rather make sure the TV had the better picture, blacks, viewing angles, colour reproduction, DSE effect, blooming etc.

                •  

                  @placard: Same. I bought a Samsung smart TV, and until recently I was just using my Xbox One X to stream media because it supported more apps that the Samsung's own OS. Then Kayo, Disney and a few others came to it and I now no longer need to use the Xbox for streaming.

                  Even now I have dedicated Netflix and Amazon buttons on my Samsung remote, I never use them.

          That's a paid review.
          Consider any review of Bauhn products before they go on sale to be a paid review so biased towards the product.

            @connorp: What makes you believe it's a paid review? I block ads so may not be seeing where it discloses that.

    Ok - so is it a LG 2nd's or a full remake using LG parts?….if so possible better then older BAUHNs……hmmmmm
    I guess anythings better then my 2012 LG……ponders……

    • +1 vote

      Likely not an LG panel or any LG parts anywhere.
      LG recently opened up their licencing of webOS to other TV manufacturers so you should start seeing a lot of brands offering TV with webOS.
      This in no way means it is LG hardware, it's just LG licensed software. See this article https://www.xda-developers.com/lg-webos-platform-other-tv-br...

    I got a 75” EKO @bigw for $899 and it’s proper Android smart tv and it’s amazing. The oem webOS isn’t worth it so factor in an Android box or Amazon stick. That extra 5” is a lot of realestate your missing out on too.

    Also factor in a 2.1 or better soundbar that supports ARC and use HDMI as built in sound almost always is subpar.

    Why buy a tv with a 1 year warranty?

    3 minimum surely… plenty of reasonable options out there for this money

    • +2 votes

      In this case because it’s cheap but good. You are still protected under Australian consumer rights if this TV fails under 3 years. Granted, it will be annoying chasing this up for repairs/compensation.

      •  

        In ACR, is there a particular paragraph about TVs getting 3-year warranties?

        Or is it supposed to work for "reasonable time" - like it used to be in ACR, for every product?

        • +1 vote

          reasonable time, and it's ACL

        •  

          It's supposed to be based on "reasonable expectations". i.e. if you pay $5000 for a TV you expect it to last for a few years. An $800 TV? Not so much..

    Don't buy electronics from aldi they barely last the year, spend a bit more and get a tv that will last 3-10 years, as a handyman i see these TV's failing constantly there designed to last a year that's it.

    Despite the one year warranty they have to replace it under consumer law for at least 3 years as in Australia an item must be fit for the purpose its intended for despite what they offer as a warranty. Aldi are the most difficult company to get this followed up with and ignore you until the mater is in official arbitration.

    •  

      Cheers for the heads up mate. Agree with you about the ACL thing

    •  

      ignore you until the mater is in official arbitration

      That could take forever, and meanwhile your are out of a TV while the kids are screaming at you all day.
      Not worth the hassle when you are buying such an expensive piece of equipment.
