Small but tough ; hopefully seeing its size , it will perhaps follow you (house move or holidays…). Good opportunities to test its reliability in the long run.

All this for a price that stays contained.

The sound quality is correct but nothing more. The typical low-medium and mid-range sounds are far from what the competition offers.

For the sound part, the television set is equipped with two speakers and a power output of 10 W.

The sound quality of this TV is average. Don’t push the volume too hard, you’d be disappointed.
