Prism actually worse value than TCL and Hisense, not really that cheap. Those brands got even better specs and with global reviews.

Really hope our local brand can step up.
Maybe if they get their OEM TV from TCL then probably could get similar quality, now they are getting from Skyworth.

Yeah if I were to choose small TV for bedroom/table TV, I would take this Google TV from Hisense.

Has Dolby Vision, Atmos, HDR10. Also has MEMC, VRR and Auto low latency mode. Somemore, it's a VA panel.

Technically speaking, I would agree with you. And I have no loyalty to local or overseas brands.

So far, only PRISM+ collaborate with meWATCH and Viu in the budget range market. Since I’m the target audience, it works out fine for me. I have two key criteria i.e. cost and Viu compatible. If any so-called market experts here can find me a 55" that meets my requirements at under $680 and is better quality than what I have, feel free put up the brand and model in this thread. I’m sure it will benefit others looking for something better. And please don’t suggest to me to buy a TV and a separate Apple TV 4K.

Again, you buy what suits you. BTW, I’m only interested in the final price. Not SRP with ‘big’ discount. Only so-called market experts think this way.

TCL now collaborates with meWATCH and Viu as well.

In a sense they are not wrong
But the comparison is to SRP which isn’t clear
Eg one can say I’m the tallest .. but in a Pygmy tribe…

Comparing TCL discounted price is cheaper than Prism+ ones, both Google TV so I assume OS and app availability is the same.

This is why I say Prism+ is not always having the cheapest prices or providing best value.

More than two months ago, Viu was not supported when I enquired about it. If anyone interested, they should look at TCL instead of PRISM+. But please rechecked with TCL before purchasing.

That’s why people should not fall for such trick. Look at final price, happy with specs and then buy.

Too many things to filter. Sometimes I do miss out a good deal.

Just enjoy whatever you got, it's the best at that time.

Now, it's just got more competitive with the presence of these 2 budget global brands.

I'm still rooting for Prism+ to reach that level.

@M_16 That’s what I have been saying all along. Buy what’s comfortable.

In future, I will go for UST projector for own use. If PRISM+ comes up with one, I will look into it.

Good that you have brand loyalty and consider Prism+ !

I've just bought a 65AL. I noticed screen tearing when watching movies on Netflix and Disney. Very specific genre like anime and namely spirited away. Not sure if anyone has the same issues. All advanced settings are set to medium.
