Fire TV televisions from ok: Good picture and convenience at a budget price

The new ok-TVs use Fire TV as a surface. This makes streaming apps easy to use.

When it comes to televisions with the largest screen at the lowest price, the three new LED TVs from ok score points across the board:

  • the 43-inch ODL 43850UV-TFB is currently available in stores for 346 euros Saturn and Media market
  • for the 50-inch ODL 50850UV-TFB you pay only 50 euros more at 399 euros, in the Saturn as well as in Media market
  • the end of the flagpole is currently marked by the 65-inch ODL 65850UV-TFB for 610 euros, pulling here too Saturn and Media market same price

That is a word. Especially when you subtract the price of a Fire TV Stick 4K from around 50 euros. Because the ok TVs already bring that with them. That means really easy operation and voice control with Alexa. And networking with the Internet and easy access to streaming apps such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney and Co is also included.

Good picture, simple structure

The setup is child’s play: the smallest, with a weight of 8 kilograms, does not require a special workout in order to be fixed on its base; Two people should take care of the installation of the 20 kilo 65s, especially since it is not enthroned on a central plinth, but rather has to stand on two rather delicate feet if it does not land on the wall.

We assume that buyers of the ok TVs are more likely to be looking for a solid product at a fair price than for the world’s best TV beyond the 10,000 euro mark. And they will absolutely find what they are looking for here. Colleagues generally rate the TVs as more expensive than they are. There was no criticism of the picture from our side, although TV hobbyists may miss the blackest black.

At the same time as our test, our sister magazine video tested competing models in the laboratory, which shone with more brightness in some film sequences – but also cost more than twice as much.

Buying a soundbar is worthwhile

The fact that the sound is actually only ok at the price points mentioned may be sufficient for typical television consumption, but for a cinema feeling, which can certainly arise with the larger models, we recommend buying a soundbar. Specifically, you can take them with you at Media Markt or Saturn: For example, the PEAQ PSB 250 goes very well with the small 43er (currently around 80 euros Saturn as Media market; read our test here).

For the two larger televisions, the PEAQ PSB 400 we tested is worthwhile (around 200 euros for Saturn and Media market). Then there is hardly anything left to be desired anyway. Except for more 4K movies with Dolby sound.

Conclusion: All three deserve a price tip

You can’t go wrong with any of the three TVs. The 43 is recommended for rooms in which larger models are out of place, the 50 is the price hit in the trio and the 65, in conjunction with a decent soundbar, even becomes a home theater for well under 1000 euros.
