    It's a shame Harvey Norman is selling it and not another retailer as I would have purchased.

      Agreed. In lockdown it would be impossible to get in contact with anyone from Harvey Norman's customer service if something goes wrong.

    (**) Any other retailer

  • I wonder if it is compatible with LG Magic Remote since it has WebOS? EKO TVs are also using WebOS and they come with LG Magic Remote.

    • In the User Manual I saw the following line: "You can use the LG ThinQ app to control key TV functions…"

      So my bet is all WebOS TV's regardless of "manufacturer" are magic remote compatible.

      How is that interesting?

      • +1

        3 is not a standard warranty for TVs

      • +1

        as @abs898 said it is not AU standard. You only get 1 year and have to pay for more years of you want.

  • how would this go paired with a PS5?

    • -2

      seriously? go and get a QLED UHD tv if you want to experience the games properly

      • For a spare room mate.
        Already got a couple of QLED UHD’s

        • Plug your Ps5 into one of your QLEDs then.

          • @xyron: Lol thanks for the great idea. Ill try that. Didnt think about that one before. Or better yet ill yank a 85” off the wall and take to spare room.

            • @kerim86: You must be so rich and successful to own a litany of obnoxiously expensive TVs. Query why you would even be thinking about a generic cheap TV in those circumstances.

              • @xyron: Clearly not successful enough for a third one to out in the spare room lol

        I sure he’ll be fine with the tiny handful of real next-gen games.

      buying a TV cheaper than your PS5 will give you that kind of an experience.

      We have ours hooked up to a huge, cheap Aldi 4K TV (I believe it was $800, 85"). For the majority of games it looks and plays great. FPS games are tricky to play because of the latency, worth considering if that's your jam.

  • +2

    Its $395….you get what you pay for. It is a crap TV with a crap screen……answering all those who think the PS5 will look great on it.

    • It's like blending 16 yo Lagavulin with weekly discount coke :P

      • but how else would i make a budget smokey cokey? gotta save money somehow :D

  • can this be wall mounted?

    • +1

      Why? I am trying to decide between these 2 for the spare room. Akai comes with 3 year warranty tho

  • +2

    Yuk, Harvey Norman

    • Just wait for Coles or OW!

      • I don't think anyone else stocks it.

        • Wesfarmers group usually stocks the Blaupunkt label and they fly out of their stores rather fast.

    I wanted cheap TV for our granny flat so just bought this. I purchased it for WebOS and the 3 year warranty. Might as well have a cheap telly that'll be fixed if it goes bang in the 1st three years. I'll let you know how it is when I pick it up later today.

    • I am heading to pickup now, HV offered 4 years additional warranty for $80 on the phone compared to 2y online. Not sure if I want a 7 year warranty on this though.

  • Just picked it up. Seems pretty decent for $395. I paid $475 for 3 years + 4 years replacement warranty.

    • 4 yrs replacement warranty. How did u get that pls.

      Online it only shows as 2 yrs right.

      • +1

        Store sales guy offered it on the phone. HV has a very bad customer service so decided to place an order on the phone. He offered 48 months

    Also update for everyone, turns out my TV is defective, there are 2 spots on the screen, one red and one green lol

    I have to take it back for replacement

    Picked up my TV and everything is working fine. The webOS operating system is good, basically a stripped down version of my LG in the lounge and way better than the android in the bedroom (how does anyone use that OS day-to-day?) It is as quick as the much more expensive LG and it fires up nearly instantly. The picture is what you'd expect for a cheap TV. But after a bit of playing around with the settings I've achieved something reasonable. As something for occasional viewing I'm happy with it, esp with the 3 years warranty…just don't go expecting the quality of an expensive TV that you'd wanna use everyday. Oh, and the sound is okay too for a smallish room.

    • Yeah I am happy for what I paid minus the 2 tiny dots on the screen.

      Actually they appeared after I updated the OS but it doesn't look like an OS issue though.

      • So would you recommend buying this TV? 2 dots for a new TV is bad wont you agree?

    • Is the picture as good as TCL 4k? Jond72

      • +1

        All 4K TVs in this price range are using a similar panel, so I would say yes!

  • How does one update apps on a tv running webOS ?

    • There's an update option in the app store.

  • Bad reviews on forums and zero reviews on YouTube. Seems only ozbargain gives it good reviews.

    • +1

      I think it's a brand new TV so no reviews out there. I couldn't find anything on forums or youtube at all. But for $395…really, what are you expecting? Everything's much of a muchness in this price range.

      • +1

        I liked the TV for 395, picture was crisp and bright enough for my dark room. HV is sending a replacement tomorrow. If it wasn't for the defect , it's not a bad TV.

  • How are s this compare to Aldi or ffalcon?
