4K on a budget

Recommended Posts

I'm after the beauty of a 4K HDR TV, on a pretty tight budget... 

 

There seems to be lot's of "factory seconds" options on gumtree/facebook marketplace (usually Hisence or TCL) as well as the Kogan range that fit my budget.

Anybody have any experience with these options? Or have any other suggestions ?

 

  • Budget: $600 - $1,000
  • Size: 50" and above 
  • Quality: 4K HDR

TCL 65" LED for well under $1000 depending on whether you want AndroidTV built in or not.     I got the 65P6US model (AndroidTV) for $1024

Check out Aldi latest catalogue for Saturday, 15th December,  have 50" 4k on sale for  $399 !!!

 Fair chance they'll be popular and be a queue.

Umnless you have a wide seating arrangement, I would ignore LCD/LED TVs with IPS panels such as LG, Panasonic and lower end Sonys. Go for the TCL as suggested by davewantsmoore above. The VA panel will give you sperior blacks, better contrast and dark room performance. Hisense series 4 or 5 would also be worth a look for the same reasons.

MI TVs are also great, search em up. If you want to go with a known company then TCL is the one for you. 

 

One thing to keep in mind, when you buy a 4k tv make sure you have an HDMI Cable that supports 4k.

TCL 65" PC65US  (right on $1000 is a sharp deal)

 

Picture = good value $ after calibration

CEC = buggy

Android TV = disappointing

Turn on time = slow (60 seconds) unless TV in standby/sleep

I bought two of the 65" Aldi 4K's for under a grand.

Sound is **** though, so using alternatives.

I picked up a Panasonic FX800 for $1250 at Betta Electrical, Fantastic display top of their range in LED. Uses the same chip set as ther'e top OLED models.

It,s the model with the full glass bevel surround.

This sort of depends on what you are watching. If it is just 4K and HD then a Hisense or TCL would be ok.

But if it is a mix of HD and SD (Foxtel ) then go for the LG or a Samsung if in the price range as would be better at scaling up from what I have seen

Good call - would stay away from IPS based panels though, unless you need wide viewing angles.
