It's been a while since we've featured an Aldi TV on Dealhacker, but this offer is definitely worth a shout-out: for 799 dollarydoos, you get an enormous 65-inch Ultra HD TV with inbuilt USB media playback and PVR recording. Here's a look at the specifications.
The Bauhn 65"/165cm 4K Ultra HD TV is a standard entry-level 4K panel from a budget manufacturer; which is to say it's good but not great. We've included the important specs below:
- Resolution: 3840 x 2160 pixels
- Refresh rate: 60Hz
- Brightness: 300 cd/m2
- Contrast ratio: 4700:1
- Response Time (GTG): 6ms
- Viewing angle (H x V): 176 X 176
- Built-in HD Tuner: Yes
- PVR Record: Yes (via USB)
- Supported video formats: AVI, MPEG, MPEG-4, TS, MKV)
- ARC: Yes
- Dimensions (with stand): 1462×305×892mm (
So that's a 4700:1 contrast ratio, 60Hz refresh rate, 300cd/m2 maximum brightness and 6 millisecond response time. Clearly, this TV isn't going to appease hardcore videophiles -- but if you're looking to get started in 4K and don't have tons of money to burn, you won't find a better option at this price point. The only thing it's missing is smart TV functionality -- but that's nothing a Chromecast dongle or modern video game console can't remedy.
The Bauhn 65"/165cm 4K Ultra HD TV will be available to buy from Aldi this Saturday (17 September.) We recommend hitting your local store nice and early.
