Our view about 16M4 from HKC : A TV HD

16M4 from HKC – Presentation of this HD

Today we are going to analyse the HKC 16M4, a basic model from HKC. A deeper analysis in order to check what this model is really worth.
First, the size : 16 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 .
Concerning technology, it is worth noting that this model is delivered with a HD resolution.  Interesting characteristics. This television which embarks all the HKC know-how is in the end at a rather reasonable price for the brand
Is it worth buying it ? This is the question we are going to answer.

16M4 from HKC – Design

With its design identical in every respect to the competition, this HKC 16M4 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 short, the HKC does the right thing on this model. An entry-level TV for which we would have liked more design work. With this HKC 16M4, no frills. Basic and that’s almost all. It could even be one of those TV sets you turn on to listen to the news; like a radio.

The screen of the HKC 16M4

Even for an entry-level model, this new HKC has a quality image, well calibrated and a very good native contrast.
HKC remains anchored in its technological choices and decides to equip its new television set with it. 
This model has a HD display. And with his 16 inches, he’s in a series of TVs that is positioned in the range of small models.Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
By providing it with a frequency of 60 Hz, the television’s fluidity is at the top of its range.
Finally, HKC has chosen to put advanced technology on this TV, which makes it possible to have an HD image quality .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s cheap; with the price that goes with it.

TV sound presentation HKC 16M4

For those who are not too demanding in terms of quality or sound rendering, this model is interesting. Indeed, the audio system is a little short. Which is normal for this entry-level device.
In terms of sound equipment, the TV is equipped with two loudspeakers and a power output of 2.8 W.

The sound quality of this TV is in a word mediocre; you feel like you’re back in the past to the days of saturating speakers.

16M4 from HKC – Embedded intelligence

Despite the absence of a smart TV, which would have increased the price of the TV set, you still have the possibility to buy a TV-Box that will extend the functionality of your TV set for a reasonable price.

Our conclusion on the HKC 16M4

With the intention of making a difference this new 16M4 HKC intends to make a difference. Well thought out and well finished. This mid-range is a wise choice.
Negative point on this 16M4 is the absence of smart tv. It’s surprising in this day and age. But since we’re in a low-end product, why not.
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.

If there are any positive points to remember, here are 3 interesting ones:
the sound power, the display frequency, the depth of the colours.
