AKAI proposes today a new basic model, equipped with technological solutions which work, the AKTV3228.
First, the size : 32 inches on this device.
Surely considering this price you couldn’t expect something excessive. You can comfort yourself with the thought that it is a mass of technology.
Beside, this television is equipped 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 .
Is it worth buying it ? This is the question we are going to answer.
TV design presentation AKAI AKTV3228
Cheap doesn’t mean ugly. This could be the rule that has been respected by the designers of AKAI.
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.
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.

Finally, AKAI has chosen to put advanced technology on this TV, which makes it possible to have an HD image quality .
To conclude the display part, we could say that it is average; but what more could be asked of a low-end device.

It is with 6 possible connections that this AKTV3228 is presented. Not all of your devices will be able to be connected. A difficult choice is on the way.
In the end, this TV provides you with the following features:
3 USB ports, 2 HDMI ports, 1 audio output

To conclude on the AKAI AKTV3228
The finish shows some small deficiencies (visible cables and visible screws), but the technology is mastered and the image rendering is at the expected level.
What more can we ask of a product in this range?
In addition, it is worth noting that this AKTV3228 is equipped with smart TV technology. Thanks to this, you have a top-of-the-range device in its category, which makes it a relevant choice.
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 But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time.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.
In short, many positive points that make this TV a very good product. The following 3 points should be remembered:
the sound power, the display frequency, the screen size.
