Tv is Great once you get display settings right!
Bought this tv 2nd hand runs great! however the colour of the tv was a tinge of the grey side of things. So I clicked the p- mode to change it to see if anything changes, still got that tinge of grey. So I ran Xbox tv calibrate switch my tv in personal mode and created a new display settings and added colour to 77 and it is incredible! Love this tv! Here is my preference if you have this tv contrast: 80 brightness:45 sharpness: 40 colour:77
Purchased in October 2019 for $400.00.
crap tv and no customer service
worst tv ever did the firmware upgrade and now tv has a split screen and is unusable!!! contacting Kogan is a joke! i was told over the phone that there is a issue with the tv and it needs to be replaced. then i receive an email saying i have to return the tv at my cost and package it ( which i no longer have) and they will send someone out to verify there is an issue with the tv. all i want is a working tv all this run around is annoying and unprofessional. i do not see why any of this is my fault and why should i pay for their faulty product

Died after 30 minutes - working again
I bought the KALED43MU8010SZB online on 17 September 2019 with a wall mount.
Was very happy to receive both products on 20 September 2019.
Unfortunately after 30 minutes of use it won't turn on anymore, only get red light. Tried their troubleshooting with no joy and have now sent a message to their support requesting return.
I Will update as this plays out.
Don't buy. Not worth it
Ok I've had the television a week. I opened the box 5 days ago. I followed all the instructions in setting up. Worked ok first night for 2 hours.
After that is when it got interesting. It started turning itself off initially after 1 hour. Only way to turn back on is to switch off at wall.
Next few days got worse until the last time was about 15 minutes.
It then just randomly displayed different solid colours on a rotating basis.
I've contacted the help desk. The remedy that they offered I followed again but to no avail.
It just is a dud.
Quailty is amazing, size is 65 inches and it's massive, ports there are so many ports so it's perfect for all my consoles which i stream on at twitch.tv/kujikukitty
Every thing is perfect
Dumb TV Kogan Crap
Within a week of having this TV, I knew it wasnt gonna be my friend. This model is the DUMBEST so called Smart TV on the market. I've had endless problems with the functions and settings that should be USER FRIENDLY considering it is a SMART TV. I've not been able to find any aftersale help nor technical support from Kogan or online. Because I gave away my Changhong TV, Ive had to put up with this useless Kogan crap that has been a nothing but total pain in the neck. Ive had to hook up my Smart Samsung Bluray Player so I can watch Netflix uni...ntrupted cause the app installed on the TV doesnt always work, plus the TV shuts down every day, sometimes up to 5 times a day. The wifi turns off randomly, but Netflix, Youtube and Freeview randomly fail to work even when the wifi is showing connected. I have to factory reset every other day to get the apps to work. The ports are rediculous and not standard ease of use without having to go out and buy connectors and converter boxes.. It is CRAP!!! I actually say regularly out loud "I HATE MY TV" The sound plugs into the headphone port via 3.5 Jack. No optical port.
Great television. Easy set up and operational settings with quick Wi-Fi connection with a no fuss approach. Overall it's appearance is attractive, not bulky but slimline that suits wall mounting or standard. Clear and crisp screen with easy to use remote. Quick connectivity features that are not complicated. Terrific gamers tv.
Purchased in December 2018 at Kogan.
Simple, but great.
Having previously fallen for the 'smart tv' craze, when my smart tv died, I decided I had suffered enough of limited cavities, no updates and half of it not working.
The answer, an Apple TV, separate review, and a Kogan 55" 4k TV.
After a simple transaction, delivery was very quick, considering I live in a rural area. The TV unpacked, it showed the main feature I had wanted. 4 HDMI ports. Why 4? One for the Apple TV, one for my PS4, one for my Nintendo Switch and of course one for Foxtel.
So now, with the Apple TV, I can access all the onlin...e streaming services, with a regularly updated system, all enjoyed in glorious 4K quality. It has been a few months now and I am still amazed at the quality of the image. For less than a quarter of a smart tv, with already outdated software, I gained a TV with accessibility and that glorious picture.

Perfect size, Brilliant picture, curved screen you can watch from any chair
I love this tv
I have had many tvs over the years, All high end.
And the Kogan tv outsmarts all of them with price and quality
Easy to set up and use
Having had this tv for a few months now I can say it is perfect for what we wanted and needed as for the price it was very good compared to others, it has no Blootooth but we did not want that, ports are good, sound is a bit tinny from its own speakers but a sound bar sorted that out, very easy to set up and navigate through menues, all in all if you do not have a lot of money you cannot go wrong and you save in the long run.

Dead out of the Box
Had a supposedly 'Refurbished' 58" Smart TV delivered today.
Took it out of the box, plugged it in and nothing.
Doesn't turn on and all the Kogan help desk people could suggest was to turn it off and on again.
Nothing else and no further response from the help desk.
Looked at it closely and what I was shipped is a 12 month old (from the build date) faulty TV.
All they did was box up someone else's faulty warranty return unit and charge me for it.
There is no way this was checked, turned on or 'Refurbished' in any way....A complete ripoff. Thanks for nothing.

4k tv I dont think so.
Purchased this tv for my teenage son mostly to play ps4 on, we had already 2 sony 65" 200 hz tvs, 6 years old, one in family room one in theatre room these have awesome picture quality, these were both $1200 dumb tvs
purchased a 4k smart tv so was expecting picture quality to be better, however picture quality is awful, have tried all different settings and googled to see if there were better settings only to find many others complaining aswell, have submitted a request back in 2018 to kogan they couldnt offer anything because it works, could...
Purchased in January 2018.
Very happy with Kogan 50 inch 4k led tv bought it for 490 very much cheaper than Sony and Samsung and exactly same quality for about 300 cheaper just wasn't happy with Kogan a soundbar cause remote wouldn't work and they only gave me a 25 voucher instead of a full refund but TVs are great quality early days just hope it lasts along time like my old hd Sony tv cause didn't get extended warranty
Purchased in August 2019 for $490.00.
Doesn't turn on.
Straight from the box the tv only stays on for about 2 seconds. I've contacted Kogan only to be met with poor fixes that don't work. It's hard to write a review of the picture quality, as the tv has not lasted long enough to even scan channels

Fantastic Value & Great Quality For Price!
We purchased this TV as a second TV for our bedroom. Have to say I'm amazed at the quality for the price! It's now connected to Foxtel and the picture quality is even better now! I'm presuming it's because of the high quality cabling from the device to TV. The 4K vision is spectacular! Sure you can buy much better and higher quality but for $399 it's fantastic value and we're extremely pleased with it! Only regret, we should have bought the Smart TV version for a bit more, but Google Chrome allows us to stream netflix etc.
Poor picture quality
Very disappointed in picture quality, lacking sharpness, fast movement on screen is blurry. Couldn't seem to find acceptable contrast and/or brightness. I have only had this TV for a day, spent hours trying to get a decent picture, went back to old TV. Would like to hear if anyone else has had similar concerns.
Super slow when turning off and on. Expected more for the price i paid for this tv. Really wish i really the reviews before i made my purchase. Wouldnt recommend

3rd Kogan TV. Great value!
This is my 3rd Kogan TV; affordable and works perfectly. This smart TV works on all HD channel, my previous Kogan Smart HD TV did not work on some channels which were frustrating.
Purchased in June 2019.
Great TV for price. My first 4k TV so it took a bit of fiddling with settings to turn the 4k on and get set up, but otherwise pretty user friendly.
Only downside is the terrible sound quality. Sound has too much Bass and can distort and the upper levels are tinny. Purchased a decent soundbar and now I have no issues whatsoever. Great TV but definitely have or plan to get a soundbar or other sound system.
