Our conclusion on the HKC 16M4

Finally, this new HKC 16M4 is the TV to buy if you are not very careful about the options, or if you are looking for an alternative to troubleshoot.
Back to the future! As in the film, you are propelled into the past. In other words, it feels like it’s the 2000s. No smart tv? you read it right. It is possible, and it is the choice that HKC makes on this 16M4.
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 But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time.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.

From this new HKC we can retain 3 positive points:
the sound power, the display frequency, the depth of the colours.
