You wish to buy it ? After reading our analysis, you will have all the elements to know if it is a good choice.

The design of the LENCO TFT-1038

With its design identical in every respect to the competition, this LENCO TFT-1038 could have difficulty distinguishing itself in a tense entry-level market.
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.
Ultimately, the LENCO TFT-1038 is a TV with a design that is simple and efficient.

TFT-1038 from LENCO – The screen

Even for an entry-level model, this new LENCO has a quality image, well calibrated and a very good native contrast.
With this new model, LENCO confirms one of its technological choices. 
The LENCO television set displays a HD resolution. With a screen size of 10 inches, this TFT-1038 is positioned in the range of small models.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.
With 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.
Finally, LENCO has chosen to put advanced technology on this TV, which makes it possible to have an HD image quality .
Thus, the LENCO TFT-1038 allows you to have a device in another room (the kitchen for example), without too much affecting your budget.

TV sound presentation LENCO TFT-1038

The power of the audio system is limited, which does not allow a quality rendering.
For the sound part, the television set is equipped with two baffles for a sound power of 5 W.

In short, sound is not the characteristic that will make you buy the TFT-1038 LENCO. Low quality; enough choice to listen to the news or let children watch their educational programs.

Presentation of the Smart TV part of the TV set LENCO TFT-1038

Unfortunately on this model there is no smart TV. However, it can be considered as good news; indeed, you should have paid more for this TV set for a use that some of you would not have had. For the others, all you have to do is buy a TV-Box.

TFT-1038 from LENCO – Its connectivity

Due to its small number of connectors, it will penalize some users.
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.

It is with 6 possible connections that this TFT-1038 is presented. Apart from a few devices, you will not be able to connect many elements. Low choice compared to the competition.

You have the following connections at your disposal:
1 USB port, 1 HDMI port, 1 audio output, 1 audio input, 1 headphone socket, 1 antenna input

TFT-1038 from LENCO – The conclusion

In conclusion, the LENCO TFT-1038 is correct for simple use. No home cinema; and to be placed in a room less than 15m².
To say the least, it’s complicated for a manufacturer to offer a model without smartTV. There are some among the competition, and at the same price. By choosing this TFT-1038 you know where you stand.
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.
