Kogan has announced the availability of a new 55-inch “borderless” LED TV constructed from a Samsung panel. For $729 it sounds like a bit of a bargain.

The Kogan 55″ LED TV (Full HD) boasts a 55-inch Full HD (1080p) LED panel with a brightness rating of 350cd/m² and a response time of eight millisecond (8sms). Unlike Kogan’s previous panels, the TV has an ultra-slim bezel design that’s strongly reminiscent of a high-end LED.

    Other product highlights include:

  • Full HD 1080P
  • Built-in PVR
  • 120Hz screen with MotionMax technology
  • 3 HDMI ports
  • USB port
  • SRS surround sound
  • [clear] [clear]
    The main downside to this deal is that you can’t check the quality of the TV in person prior to buying. Kogan has an uneven track record when it comes to the quality of its products, but the inclusion of a Samsung-branded panel does give us some peace of mind.

    The Kogan 55″ LED TV (Full HD) is available to pre-order now and will ship on 7 August. You can find out more information at Kogan’s website.


  • I’ve bought a few things from Kogan, three to be exact, and have sent them all back. I think Kogan, as a concept, is awesome but the execution is poor. I’d love to get a TV like this but wouldn’t trust that I’d be happy with it from Kogan, even with the Samsung panel.

  • I’ve bought 2 47inch LED screens from Kogan ($499 at the time) and they’ve been average to say the least. Jumpy movement & blurry. I use them outside, so I wasn’t going to going to drop top dollar.
    As with everything – you get what you pay for.

  • Has anyone had an issue with the Kogan 55″ borderless LCD TV with the sound being out of sinc while watching TV programs?

  • I bought this TV simply because I don’t believe in using 3D glasses to actually watch TV, and I don’t even need a smart-internet-connected-TV let alone pay extra for them features I know I will rarely use. All I need is a decent largish HD TV that I can hook my Xbox or PS3 and play games. This TV is acceptable to me, but the sound is not as nice as my Sony Bravia, but I think it’ll be OK once I buy external speakers or home theater sound system.
