Dealhacker: Get A Curved 4K TV From Kogan For $749

If TV manufacturers can be believed, curved panels are capable of drawing the viewer into the image in a way flatscreens don’t. While once exclusive to cashed up videophiles, the technology is finally becoming affordable to mainstream consumers. At the introductory price of $749, the Kogan 55″ 4K Curved LED TV is the cheapest we’ve seen by a huge margin. Let’s take a look at the specs.

It’s worth noting that the $749 price tag is for pre-orders only. After the promotional period, the unit will cost $799 – which is still insanely cheap for a curved 4K TV. (To put this price into perspective, the first 55-inch curved 4K TV released in Australian cost well over $10,000.)

Here are the chief specifications:

  • 4K Ultra HD 3840 × 2160 resolution
  • Personal Video Recorder
  • 4 x HDMI inputs
  • 2 x USB 2.0
  • Brightness: 280cd/m²
  • Curvature: 4000R
  • Pixel/Dot Pitch: 0.315 x 0.315
  • Refresh Rate: 60Hz
  • Response Time: 8ms
  • Supported USB Media Types: AVI, MP4 (up to 720 x 576), XVID, MP2, JPEG, BMP
  • Energy rating: 4.0 Star

These are pretty average specifications for the asking price – what makes this deal unique is the curved screen. By Kogan’s own admission, this is a “nice to have” rather than a “must have” feature and its effectiveness largely depends on the setup of your lounge room.
