Global e-waste in 2020 originates 14% from TVs and Screens. That is significant: https://www.bbc.com/news/business-51385344

From a monetary perspective you may be right if you compare the Chinese junk with the likes of Samsung, LG - they are 2-3 times more expensive. But they are also superior in technology and quality apart from standing by their product for at least 3 years. Prism is competing well on price and Philips is also just slightly more expensive, they also provide a full 3 year warranty.

Also consider that some people don't have the disposable income to purchase a new TV every 18-24 months, they certainly would not expect having to throw out the unit that they were just able to afford with no repair option.

And finally - consider if it is ethically acceptable and sustainable to conduct business this way in this age of time.
Donít have disposable income to replace tv every 18-24 months but can afford 2-3x upfront cost? How much is the Phillips compared to tcl and xiaomi?

Also, solution to e waste is not buy more expensive so can last longer. Tech moves and keeping something longer means youíll be leaving out features. A better solution will be to push manufacturers to use more recyclable material and recycling program (trade in credits etc)

Xiaomi Mi TV has no issues. And cheaper too.

https://shopee.sg/product/64472211/2667544540 I bought 55" at $496 before the mad rush. English Android TV. Minor issues: have to go through a long menu of steps to switch sound track on DVB (but how often do you watch Korean drama from MediaCorp?).

Built-in apps: Netflix, YouTube, PrimeVideo, Google Play.

Hi All,

For knowledge/awareness purposes;

I'm just looking to understand what is the level of HDR capabilities -- if any -- we get from the Prism+ E65 TV.

(1) For the Prism+ E65 4K TV, does it support 4K HDR?

If yes, what variation(s) of HDR does Prism+ E65 TV supports? (HDR10, HDR10+, HLG, Dolby Vision etc.)

(2) For those using the Prism+ E65 4K TV's built-in Netflix app -- are you guys getting HDR playback when watching Netflix?

(3) In the specs on the Prism+ E65 TV Web page, the HDR item -- is stated as "Active HDR":
https://prismplus.sg/products/prism-e65

What does "Active HDR" mean, exactly?

From previous read up on HDR stuff -- the only "Active HDR" info I come across is that:
"Active HDR" is a way whereby (some) LG TVs "improves" on HDR10 video during playback -- to simulate HDR10+ quality.

Is the "Active HDR" listed on Prism+ E65 specs -- the same as LG's "Active HDR"?

(4) Is there any settings in the Prism+ E65 4K TV we need to set -- to activate/enable HDR?

(5) How to test whether 4K HDR is working on the Prism+ E65 TV?

* Download files from Web site https://4kmedia.org/ -- then copy to USB thumb drive & playback on TV to test?
* Or is there an easier way to test if 4K HDR works?

(6) There are some 4K HDR videos on Youtube. Can the Prism+ E65 TV playback these 4K HDR Youtube videos in HDR mode?

After selecting some known HDR videos using the Prism TV built-in Youtube app, I can't see any indication that playback is in HDR mode.

How to check HDR is enabled -- when watching 4K HDR videos using built-in Youtube app on the Prism+ E65 4K TV?

(7) The Prism+ E65 TV is basically a $1K TV:
https://prismplus.sg/products/prism-e65

Nowadays, with TVs getting cheaper & cheaper -- is $1K still too low a price point -- to be worth talking about HDR playback on the TV?

Appreciate any feedback/discussion on the above queries.

Thank you.

If it's any consolation -- the good news is you have 3yrs warranty for the Prism+ E55 TV.
