    I know it's been a while, but this video was not uploaded at 16:9 4K. The source file is 2:1 4096:2048. However, we had to do an edit at some point to remove a piece of content within the video and it's caused it to be reprocessed by the FRdownload Editor at 16:9. We've reported the issue to our rep.

    @ Linus Tech Tips - I simply use my CRT monitor (from 2003 ? ) , it has perfect colors & very fast reaction times & it even displays 1600x1200 (but this in 60 Hz) & my "Russian Method" repaired PC-speakers (from 2005) work far better than this TV

    I'm one of the customers who picked up a refurb $125. This is NOT my primary display. I'm using it as an on-screen display on my channel. I like the fact that it is super light. I will be able to use a light duty wall mount. One thing you didn't catch on your review. The USB port is super slow when loading images from a thumb drive. Yes, the audio is poor with the built-in speakers, but I use external speakers anyway.

    So I just bought the 50" 4K version of this TV for $150. So far, so good. Yes the speakers suck (but I already own a nice soundbar, so I don't care). SD TV looks like shit, but HD TV, my video game consoles and the Firestick look great. The remote is pretty logically laid out too. Big upgrade from my 3 year old 43" 1080p TV - and I even paid less for it! We'll see how long it lasts, but if I can get 1-2 years out of it, it'll be money well spent. 3+ years, and I'll be thrilled.

    If it last for 5 years then it is more than sufficient as 5 years later 4k or maybe 5k or 8k would be the minimum standard.

    I'm a cheap type of guy, if I can get a deal for what I need I will get it. But tons of people are missing the fact that Linus has a job here, to critique the display for it's possible usage and if it will work well. He isn't the one buying it because He can't spend more, He is reviewing it for people who have that use case. Overall the display is just fine, I wouldn't rely on it lasting long, and the picture quality is quite not the best. For the price you could say it's a steal, though Linus brings up the point, as well as in other videos that, if you could get something better get something better. If you needed a gaming display just get the damn sceptre one He reviewed, or look for something else, if you could get something better to fill your needs then do it. This might be a decent deal for the majority of people, but clearly if you can find something better at a similar price, then this isn't it. For the price the TV is amazing, and for use cases like Linus stated, an elderly person who hasn't upgraded since their CRT broke so they had to buy a new TV, this is nearly perfect for that use case, it's cheap and it works and the quality isn't so bad (The pixel density is below average but what do you expect out of a TV the cost of an Ikea cabinet.) But otherwise, the point is still to get something better if you can find it, Linus' point was to try and give you a recommendation on a better experience, not on if this monitor is the best or not, it clearly is for many people, but if He could recommend you something better, that's the point. Linus isn't some ignorant rich bastard. He has a responsibility making these videos.

    I got that TV in 55" for my kids Xbox TV. It's perfect! It works just fine. So I totally disagree with his point. These TV's are really awesome when you don't have tons of money and want a big screen to play Xbox on. But to Linus point: be rich or get off the channel!

  • 송J1N洪


    Il y a 3 jours

    The point is that there might be other better deals if you were in the market for a general display, and He didn't state that this was utter crap, He said that this might work for some cases, and it worked out fine for you, be would recommend if you could to find something better, like the spectre display He showed for example. It's all about comparison in the market, His job is to be able to judge whether it's a good display for it's purpose, and it is, but there could be more options out there at a similar price that is just inherently better. It isn't simply just a case of him being ignorant because it isn't "his standards". He has a higher responsibility than that.

    I actually bought this TV last year when I was traveling and stayed in California for a month. The idea was that it was less hassle than shipping my TV and cheap enough that I wouldn't mind just leaving it in the apartment that I was subleasing. It got the job done. Especially considering that I only packed my SNES mini and chromecast dongle for entertainment.

I could have sworn you guys had recommended this one....whoops. On the bright side, at least OUR model was 4K for under $200, so we can at least FINALLY see the 1080p programing that was coming out of her DTV converter! ^u^; Speakers are still garbage though.
