Kogan’s hotly-touted 55″ Agora 4K Smart 3D LED TV is now available to purchase for $999. The model comes with a native resolution of 3840×2160 pixels, four USB ports, inbuilt WiFi (802.11 b/g/n) and Google TV support via Android 4.2 — not bad for under $1000. Here are our first impressions.
Consumer research group Global Reviews has released a report analysing the experiences of Australians looking to buy 46-55-inch televisions online. It found that JB Hi-Fi is the most preferred online store due to a perception of having the best prices. Harvey Norman, meanwhile, has a hard time holding onto would-be customers, with the majority defecting to another retailer before making their final purchase.
Ultra HD (aka 4K) TVs are ridiculously hi-res, but also ridiculously expensive. If you don’t fancy paying out $8000 for one that’s already had its price slashed, you can pick one up for $999. From Kogan.
Kogan is continually boasting it offers unbeatable prices for technology products, especially when compared to brick-and-mortar retailers. But do these claims actually hold up in reality? Not according to Canon, which conducted a pricing investigation of its DSLR range in Australia. It found that traditional retailers consistently beat Kogan’s prices for the same camera and sometimes came with additional accessories and longer warranties at no extra charge.
In a week where a phone with a top price of $1129 is dominating headlines, Kogan has just started selling a somewhat cheaper alternative: a $199 quad-core Jelly Bean Android model. If nothing else, that reminds us that Android remains utterly dominant in the bargain-price phone space.
