AKTV3228 from AKAI : Test and analysis

What about the new AKAI AKTV3228 ?

A new model from AKAI. They have just decided to enrich their range with a cheaper television , the AKTV3228.
First, the size : 32 inches on this device.
In spite of this size, the rendering and the picture result are good, without a doubt by means of the technology used .
This television is delivered with a  HD resolution.  From our point of view it is interesting. Given the price, this model appears as a good choice. Not too expensive but anyway it is made with elements which we think will withstand in the long run .
If you are considering buying the AKAI AKTV3228, read on to see if it is really worth it.

TV design presentation AKAI AKTV3228

With its design identical in every respect to the competition, this AKAI AKTV3228 could have difficulty distinguishing itself in a tense entry-level market.
Could do better. This could be the overall opinion about this television set. However, it is not necessary to criticize too much; remember the price at which it is offered for sale!
In the end, we’re on an entry-level product. Even if at this level, when it comes to design, we could simplify it by saying that it is cheap. Materials of poorer quality and ergonomics identical to what was done 5 years ago, make this AKAI AKTV3228 a just acceptable television set.

Even for an entry-level model, this new AKAI has a quality image, well calibrated and a very good native contrast.
With this new AKTV3228 AKAI, the company makes an assumed technological choice. 
This model has a HD display. AKAI presents this AKTV3228 with a screen of 32 inches; this television belongs to the series of small models in its range.At the same time, we are dealing with a nice display on the screen.
AKAI chooses a frequency of 60 Hz, this makes this TV set better positioned than its competitors. A perfectly synchronized image that will delight you for your home cinema.
Note that with advanced technology, this TV gives you a HD quality picture .
To conclude the display part, we could say that it is average; but what more could be asked of a low-end device.

TV sound presentation AKAI AKTV3228

The power of the audio system is limited, which does not allow a quality rendering.
The television set is equipped with  two speakers and provides a sound power of 5 W.

In conclusion, the sound of this TV will barely play all the sounds. Bad in the high notes and in the low notes. It’s not great; but that’s enough for this range.

Presentation of the connection technology of AKAI AKTV3228

AKAI has ignored the number of ports and inputs available for this model. Probably a choice related to its entry-level positioning.
With a number of connections below the average of its range, you will have to choose which appliance(s) in your home you need to connect to your TV.

This model has a total of 6 connections, not too bad. Apart from a few devices, you will not be able to connect many elements. Low choice compared to the competition.

In clear, the connections available on this model are:
3 USB ports, 2 HDMI ports, 1 audio output

Our conclusion on the AKAI AKTV3228

Finally, this new AKAI AKTV3228 is the TV to buy if you are not very careful about the options, or if you are looking for an alternative to troubleshoot.
The least we can say is that this jewel incorporating smart TV technology offers you the AKAI know-how . An element that is a very good option in the high-end segment.
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.

Finally, we will note all the positive points that are to be added to the credit of this television set. Here are 3 that I find interesting:
the sound power, the display frequency, the screen size.
