HKC 16M4H

What is the new HKC 16M4H worth ?

HKC proposes today a new basic model, equipped with technological solutions which work, the 16M4H.
Let’s have a look at the size. It’s a 16 inches.
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.
In addition this HKC displays a Full HD resolution.  Even if the product belongs to an entry-level group , the result is serious.
No wahoo effect on this model, but the correct one. In short, the manufacturer’s goal with this model is to provide a product that meets everyday TV needs.
An analysis will determine if the objective is achieved and if it is relevant to buy it.

TV design presentation HKC 16M4H

With its design identical in every respect to the competition, this HKC 16M4H could have difficulty distinguishing itself in a tense entry-level market.
Innovation. This seems to be the key word given by HKC to characterize the 16M4H.
Considering the price level the design is good. We perhaps would have liked something more accomplished, but it is, it must be remembered, an entry-level television set.
This new HKC 16M4H is simply flat.
With its glass surface of 16 inches, it has a typical piano black color.
As far as the base is concerned, there are also things to say. It is perfectly integrated with the screen and gives a general feeling of balance.The shape of the base is of the pedestal type.In conclusion, even if design is important, it is not on this point that we judge the 16M4H. You can put it in your living room ,it will not look out of place.

16M4H from HKC – The screen

The new HKC offers an image with disappointing contrasts. It has pale, dark and shallow colours. This translates into completely washed out blacks that do not allow you to enjoy a movie properly in the dark.

The HKC television set displays a Full HD resolution. This resolution is clearly better than what is generally done.
And with his 16 inches, he’s in a series of TVs that belongs to the series of small models in its range.In the end, it is interesting to note that beyond the size, the screen is well made. A point to add when choosing between this model and other competitors.
By providing it with a frequency of 100 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 Full HD image quality .
In conclusion on the display, with the 16M4H HKC helps you to choose a low-end TV set, which will be perfectly at home in your kitchen.

TV sound presentation HKC 16M4H

The speakers are of average quality and, therefore, the result does not work miracles on this point. Voices, for TV shows, are well reproduced; but for movie or game mode, you may have saturation and distortion in the sound.
For the sound part, the television set is equipped with two speakers and provides a sound power of 2 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.

The Intelligent aspect of the HKC 16M4H

This TV offers you the choice of connectivity: Whether through its Wifi function, or through the local network with other devices or computer devices (fixed or mobile computers, NAS synology for example), your TV 16M4H is communicating.

Presentation of the connection technology of HKC 16M4H

Its connectivity is decent for a basic range. You’ll have little choice.
You will need to carefully choose the devices you want to connect to this 16M4H. The reason? there are few choices in terms of available connectors.

It is with 6 possible connections that this 16M4H is presented. The HKC 16M4H is at the bottom of its range. Not great compared to its competitors.
In the end, this TV provides you with the following features:
2 USB ports, 1 HDMI port, 2 audio outputs, 1 headphone socket

To conclude on the HKC 16M4H

With the intention of making a difference this new 16M4H HKC intends to make a difference. Well thought out and well finished. This mid-range is a wise choice.
However, it is not the resolution that we expect from this television set. Indeed, the big advantage will be found in a very competitive price. Here, you will have a TV that displays all your video sources correctly and allows you to enjoy a very well defined picture in all circumstances.

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 screen size, the display frequency.
