    I know it's been a while, but this video was not uploaded at 16:9 4K. The source file is 2:1 4096:2048. However, we had to do an edit at some point to remove a piece of content within the video and it's caused it to be reprocessed by the Youtube Editor at 16:9. We've reported the issue to our rep.

      Chinese reasoning: 3 HDMI ports costs the same as 1 HDMI port, but helps to sell more TVs.
      American reasoning. Sell the base model with 1 port and upsell the customer to a more expensive model with 3 ports.

            Hmmmm, historically ive gone used but with how cheap TVs are getting, i was able to spring for a 4k LG for about $350. A lot more than 150 but a TV is typically something you'll use for a long time. I'm still using my used 1080p tv for my son's xbox

                      I bought a 40 Inch Full HD tv for 80$ in a wallmart in China. It was called the "chuanchong" (no joke) and it was a pretty decent tv not gonna lie.

                          the panel will be from a good manufacturer.... the television is crippled on purpose.... you need to get into the service menu to make your own settings.... then a cheap tv becomes a good tv!

                                                I don't mind if the audio on a TV is utter crap, because I like to use separate speakers anyway. If the speakers are alright, it just seems like a waste of money for something which I wouldn't be using anyway.

                                                        This is making me reflect on the Insignia set I bought for cheap. My Apple TV 4K seems to blip out sometimes and loses audio. I wonder if it’s the TV’s fault.

                                                        The audio isn’t bad on my TV, though.

                                                          You should keep that voice output on "slow" and call the TV "Marvin" ;)

                                                                                        I have to disagree on the "cheaper tv create more waste", we've always had cheap tv's in my family and the last one was the cheapest 100cm I could find and lasted 6 years. Which is three times as long as the only brand name tv we've had, which was the one we had before the other one I'm talking about. And my new one is the exact same size, also the cheapest (would've gotten the same brand but couldn't find it anymore), and it already outlasted the brand tv we had.
                                                                                        Also I've never had bad image quality, but the color settings are always wack, you need to know how to set it up, and once set up right, they're as good as a mid range tv. The sound, however, is usually fucking trash. And even changing the eq doesn't fix it. You can get it to be better, but it'll still be mediocre, but at least it can get good enough to actually understand dialogues.
