    its not a bad display. black levels not so hot. everything else is ... ok. 4k looks nice and sharp on a small 49" :)

    i tried to calibrate but its pretty much just brightness and contrast, and cool,standard,warm colours.

    how was that for a professional review?

    sound is terrible. buoght a soundbar: Yahaha YAS 108B which should kick butt.

    these tvs are less value if you gotta buy a sound bar :/

    but picture quality I am quite happy with, after watching blade runner 2049 ultraHD last night.

    God yes the sound is terrible. Lol

    But I always knew that. Tbh if you’re getting a 4K tv, chances are you’re not going to be using the included speakers anyway.

    No CIE "horse-shoe" chromaticity diagram, no care.

    Even the good tellies all have shit sound these days (unless they come with a soundbar style addon). That's the price you pay for ultra thin, no-bezel designs.

    Here's my review:

    I'm sure its fine as a TV, but It's freaking terrible as a PC monitor, or gaming TV monitor.

    30hz only over HDMI
    Terrible input lag
    Terrible backlight non-uniformity
    I had all kinds of junk and debris under the glass, all over the panel, huge pieces near the bottom
    Dead pixel out of the box
    I don't believe the 178deg viewing angles
    RGBW subpixels, not RGB --> USELESS as a computer monitor, sigh.
