Our conclusion on the Vu 32OA
In conclusion, the Vu 32OA is a mid-range television set of good quality. Average in most areas, it is nevertheless a wise choice for consumers who want to have a well-made product.
The least we can say is that this jewel incorporating smart TV technology offers you the Vu know-how . An element that is a very good option in the high-end segment.
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 But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time.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 Vu we can retain 3 positive points:
the sound power, the screen size, the display frequency.
