    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 RU-clip 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.

  • randy smith AKA Lamper fox

    Here you guys are pretty pathetic looking down your nose at people because of the choices they make a whole lot of people buy TVs like that because they don't want to spend a s*** ton of money and have to turn around and get a different TV because they've changed some kind of format on us so yeah and or they just don't make a lot of money and they'd like to come into the new century

    LOL I had that tv hooked to my pc for almost a year. It was a quick cheap replacement for my 32 inch 10 year old hd tv that died on me. I've now got a 40 inch Vizio 4k smart tv as my monitor. That 43 inch onn tv really sucked.

    Are you guys joking!?!? 1080p is NOT bad! I grew up with DVDs at 480p and I still enjoy them. Heck, I even enjoy watching VHS tapes with frickn' 240p in 2020. You even said that you had a friend with a tv that was 720p, and you described it as terrible. 720p isn't bad either! The funny thing is, you guys are older than me, and you're acting like 720p is terrible, when I'm younger than you, and I grew up with 480p. I personally think this is a good tv for people, but you're acting like its for peasants and boomers.

    This looks like a stripped-down Hisense TV. Makes me wonder if Walmart didn't ask Hisense to produce a cheaper version of their (already) budget-displays.

    ONN just like Blackweb, are pieces of shit merchandise. Blackweb products have a tendency to catch fire and ONN is just a Walmart owned generic brand. What's that old saying? You get what you pay for. If you go cheap, then you deserve exactly what you get.

  • Daniel Dougan
    Daniel Dougan 25 days ago

    You don't buy a TV like this to use it with a computer, and you don't stand that close to it. From normal viewing distances, 1080p is plenty of resolution at 43 inches. I love my 40" Sony 1080p TV from about 2010. It still looks great...it's our main living room TV because we literally don't have room for anything larger with all the other stuff in there.

    My 32" Westinghouse 720p TV from about the same time also looks fine at normal viewing distances, but it's nowhere near as good as the Sony for reasons other than resolution.

    Got the Spectre 50"4K about 3 years ago. Use it as a desktop monitor with a mid range video card. Sitting 2' away, no apparent pixels or blur. Don't game, so I can't critique that aspect. Sound is crap, but cheap extension speakers with a boomer takes care of that. Would buy again and recommend to anyone.

    I can't believe it took nearly 14 minutes for them to finally turn off the sharpness, it's literally the first thing I disable on any non-CRT display because all it does is apply a Photoshop-style sharpness filter to the image and make it look like garbage.

    It looked like the big foam pieces provided more than enough of a stand off to effectively suspend the TV in the middle of the box, possibly negating the need for any further padding.
