Our conclusion on the AKAI AKTV3228
In conclusion, the AKAI AKTV3228 is correct for simple use. No home cinema; and to be placed in a room less than 15m².
The choice of AKAI to include the smart TV system with the best of its know-how in the AKTV3228, leads us to say that this high-end TV is worth having a good look at it.
This TV has the correct resolution, nothing more. Producing and marketing TVs today in HD is often sufficient and well suited for ‘basic’ uses. But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time. It is therefore a temporary and/or occasional choice. You’ve been warned.
In short, many positive points that make this TV a very good product. The following 3 points should be remembered:
the sound power, the display frequency, the screen size.
