With PHILIPS take the lead with their AOC brand, others like OEMs and known marques should be shaken by the pricing earthquake. Aussies pays less for their biggies, why should we pay more?

Quick review.

Vibrant colors. I really love the colours.

4k youtube demo clip looks very very good. 2k upscaling is okay lah.

A bit of light bleed from the edge lighting.

3HDMI ports, wired & wireless network, 2USB, 1VGA.

Audio/sound quality is okay lah.

DVB-T2 over the air video quality is really good.

For the price paid, very good value.

zoom in to the top/bottom black strip. can see slight bleed. normal fullscreen 16:9 cannot see the bleed.
it’s only visible when there is a black border, or super dark scenes.

managed to catch a super dark scene...
judge for yourself...it isn’t too bad...quite acceptable...
with the room lights switched on, it isn’t very obvious.

I don't think you had achieved the "perfect" black IMO.
Try this...
Temporary set ur video output from playback device to 4:3 Fullscreen Letterbox out. Then play a widescreen video.
On ur TV, set the LED backlight to roughly 25~33%.
Then follows by brightness gradually down such that the black bars above and below the picture blends with the side bars which is virtually not active at all. When the u've achieved a total black frame, move just 1%/click up on brightness. That will be ur reference black(and brightness level).
Tune back ur playback device back to 16:9 widescreen output.
Play the end credits, take the picture again, u'll get different results.
What i see from the shimmer/glare of the white text in he end credit, is that ur contrast is quite high. However such effect can also be dependent on different camera capture quality. So no comment on that as contrast will just affect the white and bright portion in the picture, so no need to worry or temper on that.

I don't see it as gamble. It's just another alternative support to a local company, just like last time how one may support PALLADINE, or Ichiban or even... AKIRA.

PRISM+ is a different company. It's a house brand of AfterShock computers.
If their product fails to impress, it affects their main computer division as well.
It's a gamble to them, not to customers. Just like AOC monitors/TVs to PHILIPS.
