So many problems - smart TV that is not so smart

published

Bought and used this TV for 1.5 year. I have had so many little issues since beginning.
1. you can't use this TV if you loose remote controller. You can't find any compatible controller.
2. Built in Netflix app is not working or ask you to login every 2 days. I had to remove and reset the app 200 times but having same issue.
3. HDMI port is not working - I tried factory reset 50 times. still not working.
4. Kogan TV is simply total waste of money (cheap Chinese made). Better to buy more reliable brand.

Purchased in September 2018 at Kogan.com for A$450.00.

Great TV

published

Great TV for price. My first 4k TV so it took a bit of fiddling with settings to turn the 4k on and get set up, but otherwise pretty user friendly.

Only downside is the terrible sound quality. Sound has too much Bass and can distort and the upper levels are tinny. Purchased a decent soundbar and now I have no issues whatsoever. Great TV but definitely have or plan to get a soundbar or other sound system.

Unwatchable

published

The Series 8 MU8010 smart TV is advertised as 4k but its does not look like it is, the blues are washed out and solid, oranges and reds blend and bleed.
Apple TV video stalls and is unwatchable, have connected same Apple device to my other Samsung TV and its works perfectly.
Audio is horrible and tinny sounding.
This is a very poor quality TV and ieatwords.com.au reviews put this TV as a 2.2, how does the Kogan website give it 4 out of 5 stars, suspicious!!
Its unwatchable in my view.

Purchased in January 2020 at Kogan.com for A$600.00.

Hi Ross, what do you mean ' continue to respond'. That's a bit of a problem because i have received nothing to be able to 'respond' to.

Great for the cost

published

Not much to say on this.
Its a great tv for the price.

Light bleed is very minimal and the image quality is top notch. Not amazing in very fast paced action scenes but then my 2018 sony tv doesn't do too well in that regards either, and that cost $2000 more!

Sound quality is lackluster but it's nothing a cheap soundbar won't fix.

More bang for you buck

More bang for you buck

Bought this TV in 2018 for $600, was a bit worried about the quality as I was more into high end TVs, however it is still looks great given its low price.

The picture quality is good, no complaints.

Sounds OK but not awesome, you can add a soundbar if audio quality is a concern.

Has enough inputs for my needs.

Overall, a good TV that is worth your money, no bells or whistles though.

This TV has been great for the price

published

- Sound wasn't very good but when you're buying a 55+ inch TV you do go and buy a sound system also
- HDR feature was detected by my PS4 and games look great
- Slow operating system for freeview and youtube but I use Apple TV anyway.
- 6 star energy rating for 55 inch which is rare for a TV that size as most are 4.5 to 5 stars only.
- 6 months ago I was very happy with my purchase price at the time from Kogan of $550 including delivery. I see it's currently at $759 plus delivery on Kogan and I think that's overpriced (for the 55 inch model)

Product as bad as service.

published

Misleading product description (may possibly be illegal)
Unboxed to find out that the picture quality was worse than my 6 year old non hd tv.
Tv also freezes.
Informed their customer service within an hour of receiving the product to refund and it’s been a battle ever since.
Dont not buy!
I will be shouting very proudly on every review site I can and to every person looking for a new tv.

Complete waste of space and money

published

Don’t waste your money. TV has to be restarted every time you use it as the internet continuously disconnects and won’t reconnect unless you restart. Can’t download Netflix, constantly freezing up and takes forever to start back up. By far the worst tv I’ve ever owned I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

Wish I read these reviews before purchasing.

published

On the main page of the website I purchased from, all reviews had 4+ stars which I now believe to be fake. I bought this tv on Black Friday thinking to get a cheap deal. I bought this 4K HDR TV specifically for gaming which I’ve just tried doing for 30 minutes+ on my Xbox one X. Was extremely excited until I found out it didn’t work and now have wasted $500 for nothing. This is false advertising at its finest. This is a 1080p TV.

I will continue to try 4K with other applications.
