4K Ultra HD TVs Buying Guide
Our buying guide will explain which type of 4k ultra hd tv would suit you most, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which features are worth looking out for.
The television is amazing. It has great picture clarity and easy to set up. It connects eaily to the internet and all functions are easy to operate. The only complaint is that the sound could have a little better quality for the size of the TV is sometimes sounds a bit tinny. Most times it goes through our 7.1 sound system so it is not a problem in that respect. The price was exceptional on a sale deal.
Great value for money, but ultimately it lacks
The picture is fantastic in dark to moderately lit rooms, even with full backlight on it tends to glare a bit on a bright sunny day.
The sound quality is really not that great, it has clear mid hi to hi frequencies, and no low mid to low frequencies so if sound is important, use your own sound system .
Appearance wise, it's quite attractive. The slimline frame looks sleek and unintrusive. The picture quality is adequate (if you're a stickler for black blacks then you won't fall in love with this item, but it's nice enough for the average ...person to enjoy undescriminately) . Overall, if you want a moderately priced 55" tv, you won't find much better bang for your buck elsewhere... but there are definitely better 55" TVs on the market if you're willing to spend the money .
Great TV for the price
Picture quality could be a little better, speakers and sound are great. I have some issues using the apps on the television, typing is difficult searching apps like netflix is difficult as their doesn't seem to be enough controls on the remote. But still love the fact the internet is on the actual tv rather than need extra equipment. It has plenty of ports for all my accessories.
Bigger isnt always better. Got a good deal i guess but its frustrating. Black squarish lines on picture. They look blurred. Went back to jb the tvs there had the same thing. They just told me its how its made and thats it. What can u do. I will buy a new one in a year or 2.

Soniq S55UV16B ... the same as the 16A but just the B revision.
First impressions? Bloody awesome!
Well packed, handy box with easy open access. What I mean is, standing the box unright when you cut the straps allows you to slip the box 'lid" off. Don't cut the box tape like you normally would to open a box. The lid slips off but keeps the TV protected with foam. Its a little thing off the bat, but a nice touch. I'll keep the box in the roof or something, it'll come in handy in the future I'm sure.
After unpacking, I hung it on the wall (separately purchased mount). It's 16kg on its own, so manageable o...n your own if lifting but obviously easier with a second person. Nice enough the Soniq came with 4 mounting screws on the mount points to attach to the mounting frame… handy to have because its always scary using 3rd party screws in case they go too deep and break something inside. My only niggle is when you turn it on it takes a moment for the TV to actually 'load up'. A Soniq screen comes up for 15 seconds, and then a Cinavision screen comes up… another 15 seconds. So it's about 30 seconds until the TV is on and showing your chosen broadcast. Not a major drama, but I guess the Android system has to load up. Once up and running though, no complaints! Once loaded up I was pretty happy with the standard image settings to be honest. I ended up changing to the 'warm' picture mode, and 'music' sound setting, but on the whole I'm very impressed with the image and sound. Remembering with any new TV these days, if you want awesome sound its best to have a separate audio receiver and speakers, but stock as is its perfectly fine in the family room. Doesn't sound too tinny, and volume doesn't seem to fluctuate (I have a 32" Samsung and when watching a tv show the volume constantly needs to be changed because you cant hear the voices, or the action noises are too loud). Remote is an hourglass shape, light, and comfy.

Honest Good Value
What I like about the TV.
Firstly look at what it is and you will not be disappointed. This is a JB-HiFi house brand unit, a basic 4K UHD 55" Smart TV and the features and colour meets my expectations and requirements.
Don't compare this with the Big Brands which are in excess of $1500+ range as a minimum.
Secondly it links well with the home wifi for easy internet access for You Tube and Web browsing.
Others may have been disappointed with the number or the lack of apps pre-loaded on the TV.
But I combined the unit with a TV box/m...

Questions & Answers
How do I loop videos on the usb inserted
16 inch with dvd player works but unable to change channels manually or with remote
We purchased a Soniq S55UV16B-AU smart TV late last year (Nov/Dec 2017).
In general I feel it's good value for the money... though:
1) it did not include a hard-copy manual (i.e. printed version)... the manual instead being an electronic version stored in the TV, which seems unable to be referred to whilst attempting to follow instructions, and
2) the remote is not particularly 'user friendly'... particularly for Netflix.
I’ve searched on-line, including on the Soniq website... trying to download a manual to print for reference. Though all I can find is an 8-page Quick Reference Guide.
Does anyone know:
a) from where I can download the full manual,
b) or how to copy it from the TV to a USB stick,
c) and if there are any remote control instructions for using Netflix (the remote and TV functions seem very user ‘unfriendly’, as I cannot use the on screen menus, etc.)
