    New to big TV's…is this an okay deal? Understand it's not an OLED or anything fancy but are there are there any reasons NOT to get this model?

    • +4 votes

      I don't think you'll get a 75" tv delivered cheaper brand new. I'd probably buy if I needed one

    •  

      Its brilliant you're even mentioning oled at this price point and size. Its pretty obvious the value here. This is basically something thats got no margins in it.

  •  

    How is it soo cheap

    • +9 votes

      Cheap for a reason or some reasons. Here or there, somewhere you can/ can't not see. Something You think it's fine when you buy it and realise it is not when you own it. Etc…

    • +9 votes

      Because Hitachi stopped making TVs back in 2012

      •  

        This one is obviously newer. Did they sell the brand to someone else? It is like Bauhn now?

        I think this pricing is sharp for a 75”, even for a generic unbranded tv.

            •  

              @ubcool: is that legit? As in they all are just rebranded but the same TV? Or do you mean moreso the quality of each brand is about the same?

          • +2 votes

            @phunkydude: I reckon you're right - looks identical to the 75" Eko I bought from Big W last time they had them on clearance (down to the little protruding power LED on the bottom left corner). Great TV if it is - bargain price for the size!

      •  

        Bought a made in Japan hitachi plasma in 2007 and they were using cheap components even then. It was no competition to Pioneer but they really should have used similar quality components to Panasonic. It was no wonder they closed the tv business.

        •  

          Pioneer exited the TV business in 2010 two years earlier than Hitachi so what does that say?

    •  

      JB rep the other week told me they're discontinuing all of the cheaper brands except FFalcon and maybe one other I think. Basically they're gonna be focusing on the mainstream brands and have very little budget options.

    What's the energy usage on these? Dimmable backlight being crucial.

      •  

        Cheers, so the specs suggest 485w (which is getting close to the consumption of a small Spilt System Air con).

        A long way from what this guide suggests a 75" uses:

        https://www.rtings.com/tv/learn/led-oled-power-consumption-a...

        That being said, every time I have been in JB's etc these cheaper TVs have the backlights turned up way too high, making the more expensive TVs around it look better.

        Once you adjust the backlight 50%, tweak the contrast etc, the depth, blacks and colours are infinitely better. The energy usage also drops 75% (and since most of us here are tight arses…that's a good thing). My 47" I bought many moons ago uses 130W out the box. But all set up right, she now runs at 47w.

        Anyone know real world figures for these once set up correctly?

    Most TVs produced by Vestel( Turkish) are sold under licensed brand names such as Toshiba, Hitachi, Polaroid, JVC, Panasonic, Bush, Alba and many own brand labels.

    •  

      Panasonic too?

      •  

        Not their OLEDs. Not sure about the other ones.

    •  

      According to this:

      https://en.tab-tv.com/?p=14940

      Vestel produces Hitachi TV's for european market and Hisense produces Hitachi TV's for USA, Canada and South America.

      Would Hitachi TV's sold in Australia be Vestel or Hisense?

    I notice Aussies are getting stingier and stingier every year. Everything is on the race to the bottom. Quality is gone and people just rush to buy the trash that Kmart has become successful in dishing out whilst stores like David Jones and Myer languish.

    DJ and Myer has stopped selling a lot of premium quality but relatively unaffordable items and premium brands that are still stocked like Sony face pressure to cheapen their own products to better compete on price. When did we all become so cheap

    Looks like Big W EKO which I bought earlier in the year and very happy with it.

    • +1 vote

      I have had zero issues with it. I didnt like the LG interface thing so I use chroma cast with TV and it has been perfect, everything works fine and looks good.

    •  

      Is your EKO remote working alright?

      I have a 65 EKO QLED but I need to standing in directly in front of the tv to operate the tv with the remove.

      Also there is a 2 second lag before pressing the remote and seeing a response from the tv

      • +2 votes

        Have you paired the remote with the TV? I don't have any issues with mine.

        •  

          I just put the batteries and it started to work unlike Fire Stick or other BT remote

          How do I correctly pair the remote in EKO

          Thank you for your assistance.

          • +3 votes

            @utsc: I will need to read the instructions again…. But you go into settings and devices etc. After pairing you can talk into the remote for voice commands etc.

            If you haven't got the instructions then I will look it up and get back to you later today.

            • +2 votes

              @Logical: Went to setting => Remote & Accessories and paired the BT remote by pressing left arrow and menu key simultaneously for 10 seconds to allow the tv to discover the remote and then selected with the right arrow key and pressed OK to pair.

              Finally enjoying my tv; thank you very much Logical.

      •  

        Remote is not amazing and I didnt pair it. Has not been an issue because I use Chrome cast and prefer that remote. The interface is not great as I said so if you get chrome cast then it solved 2 issues (LG interface and remote).

    Most people are content with low quality items and will never know the difference. I go to people's places and they rave about their cheap TV's….. I look on in horror but of course keep my thoughts to myself. I'm used to watching the OLED C7 - now that's a TV. Most people don't know what they don't know I guess.

    And the specs lie. I have a 10yo Samsung 1080P in one room and it outperforms all new cheap branded TV's. The picture is amazing and then refresh rate is good. It's all in the software.

      You're also contributing to less e-waste and less greenhouse gas pollution because you didnt cheap out for a few hundred dollars and kept tech that stays premium and lasts longer.

      Have a few less dinner dates where you spend $100 on a meal or booze and theres your saving. I mean why bother living in a "lucky" first world country if you're gonna try and live your life as a pauper.

      • +10 votes

        People need to spend within their means. We might be a 'first world country' but that doesn't mean everyone is well paid and as fortunate as you. For some, even this price tag is a stretch. Don't judge.

        • -1 vote

          Its not judging to put environment before want, too much rubbish is designed and engineered in the world because people go for the bottom of the barrel without thinking about what happens afterwards. We are "recycling" much of this future e-waste by simply shipping our problem to either China or some other poor sod of a country.

          I am in no way fortunate, trust me. Lived a long time without a tv. A tv is not on the same level as a fridge so please dont give me that argument.

      •  

        Around me the hard waste collection days have mainly LG and Samsung TV's.

        Personally own two Aldi Bauhn dumb non HDR 65 inch TV's for seven years now still going strong. Paid $700. One of which is on around 16 hours a day every day.

      •  

        I don't think cheap electronics are more likely to become e-waste only because they are less durable. It seems to me that many people throw them away only because they are cheap to buy back, especially when they are moving, or just things upgrade too quickly.

        I just moved to a new place and my old modern is retired only after two years due to TPG's new NBN protocol. Many people would just throw it away. But I'll put it on FB market for a couple of weeks first for free to see if anyone needs it. You see, it's an extra cost of time and energy for me, but less e-waste to the earth. However, not everyone is happy to do so.

      OLED at the size in 6-10x the price.

      Not really comparable.

      That said one of my favourite features was the simulated hdr on non hdr content. That and the amazing pq of OLED, but whether or not it's worth the price is arguable.

    If not watching sports just light gaming (switch) and some action movies, will 60Hz a deal breaker? Thanks

    •  

      Using EKO 65. i dont like the high motion rate pictures on this TV when compared to my Sony.

    •  

      I think switch is 60Hz max and movies are usually 24fps so should be no problem. Go to JB and have a look if picture quality suits your needs.

        Yeah good idea. It's more for guess coming over haha i don't really watch TV. Love my mobile better. Thanks
