I'm looking for a budget 65inch TV for bedroom to replace 40inch LG, mostly for 1-2 hours of Youtube / Netflix before getting into bed.


I found very attractive pricing of this model from website, however even PB have nothing on display only selling at their website.


My second best budget choice is 65inch Philips, however it's 30% more expensive to the Konka one.


Are there any in display at Auckland to viewing?

Historically speaking Konka TV's have had the cheapest and nastiest panels in existance. In Harvey Norman stores where I have seen them they have always looked truly terrible.


Newer models might be better, but I'd take a Veon any day of the ones I've seen. I definately would not buy one without seeing it.

Konka / Konic / Veon = cut from the same cloth.




I don't typically recommend buying a 2nd hand TV, but in this case... I'd be heading to TradeMe.

I bought one from pb tech. Horrible, oversaturated red/pink hue/tint which cannot be adjusted in picture settings. Switched it for the philips, which even considering the slightly heftier price-tag, is probably the best bang for your buck budget tv available right now. Keep an eye out on price or speak to the guys in store, as this goes on heavy discount at times.
