What is the new eAirtec 24DJ worth ?
A new model from eAirtec. They have just decided to enrich their range with a cheaper television , the 24DJ.
First of all, regarding the size of the screen, we are facing a 24 inches.
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. 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 eAirtec 24DJ, read on to see if it is really worth it.
24DJ from eAirtec – Design
With its design identical in every respect to the competition, this eAirtec 24DJ could have difficulty distinguishing itself in a tense entry-level market.
No revolution concerning the aesthetics of this 24DJ. We are in line with market standards. At least we know what we’re buying: a television set.
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 eAirtec 24DJ is rather flat.
With a size of 24 inches, it has a typical piano black color.
Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. Indeed it has a double base, in which we have a division where each part of the base has its place. With this, the TV is exactly the same on both sides, thus creating a very symmetrical and stylish TV that can be enjoyed in any room.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 eAirtec 24DJ a just acceptable television set.
24DJ from eAirtec – The screen
Even for an entry-level model, this new eAirtec has a quality image, well calibrated and a very good native contrast.
With this new 24DJ eAirtec, the company makes an assumed technological choice.
The eAirtec 24DJ is available in the HD resolution. eAirtec presents this 24DJ with a screen of 24 inches; this television belongs to the series of small models in its range.Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
By providing it with a frequency of 60 Hz, this television is therefore less well placed than its competitors. Shifted image and lack of precision make this model a low end of the range.
Note that with advanced technology, this TV gives you a HD quality picture .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s cheap; with the price that goes with it.
TV sound presentation eAirtec 24DJ
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.
The television set is equipped with two loudspeakers for a sound power of 10 W.
In any case, the final rendering is fine.
Maybe if you want to or if you are a perfectionist, you can connect two other speakers with a bass boost to amplify the result.
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.
The Intelligent aspect of the eAirtec 24DJ
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.
24DJ from eAirtec – Its connectivity
The connection system consists of the minimum number of elements. The adepts of televisions in local network version will be disappointed by the lack of possibilities in terms of ports and inputs.
In this price range, this TV offers a higher number of connections than most of its competitors.
It is with 9 possible connections that this 24DJ is presented. The eAirtec 24DJ allows you not to choose between the different devices to be connected. You can connect everything to this TV; the box, game console, multimedia server, DVD or Blu-ray player, etc…
You have the following connections at your disposal:
2 USB ports, 2 HDMI ports, 1 audio output, 1 headphone socket, 1 antenna input, 1 component plug (Video), 1 composite plug (Y/Pb/Pr)

24DJ from eAirtec – The conclusion
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?
The choice of eAirtec not to include a smart TV system in this 24DJ seems a shame to us. In our opinion, many will choose another model among the competitors in this range, that will have an operating system.
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.
From this new eAirtec we can retain 3 positive points:
the sound power, the screen size, the display frequency.
