This deal is straight-up bonkers. Aldi is selling Bauhn's 55-inch Ultra HD TV for just $799. That's a 55-inch 4K panel with a native resolution of 3840x2160 pixels. For $799. Read on for the specifications.
Budget electronics manufacturer Bauhn is selling the 55" 4K Ultra HD LED Smart TV exclusively through Aldi for an asking price of just $799. Bear in mind that a little over a year ago, the cheapest 4K TVs in Australia cost well over five grand. The deal will be available from Wednesday 25 March
So what does $799 get you in 4K TV land? The Bauhn website is pretty light on technical details: it has a contrast ratio of 3500:1 and can display 16.7M colours, but response times and brightness levels aren't mentioned anywhere.
Here are the listed specifications in full:
And here's the spiel from Bauhn's website:
Enjoy home entertainment in the ultimate picture quality with the BAUHN 55" 4K Ultra High Definition LED Smart TV. With Freeview Plus and Catch Up TV, you can watch back full episodes of your favourite programs for free, and set reminders so you never have to miss your favourite show again. You can surf the web and interact with apps on the big screen, and with Screen Mirroring from your smartphone or tablet, you can enjoy all your videos, music and images without the need for cables.
Hmm. We can't vouch for this TV's image quality but it's safe to say that you'll probably get what you pay for. Nevertheless, if you're on a limited budget and are desperate to join the 4K bandwagon, this has got to be the cheapest way to climb onboard. For added peace of mind, Aldi is offering a 60-day money-back guarantee along with a one-year warranty.
If any of you snap one of these up on Wednesday, do let us know how you fare with it in the comments section below.
