A Fully Loaded TV
Gadgets and Gizmos|November 2019
Xiaomi stirred up the smart TV market with the launch of its 55-inch smart TV in February 2018.
Nidhi Singal

As many new companies stepped into the game including OnePlus and Honor, Xiaomi has stayed ahead of the curve. The latest launch - Mi TV 4x 50-inch packs in a 4K HDR 10 panel with 3840x2160 pixels and 60 Hz refresh rate, 20W speakers Dolby+ DTS-HD, PatchWall and Android TV OS, multiple ports and hotkeys for accessing Netflix and Prime Videos for an aggressive price point of ̀ 29,999. But does it perform?

Design: Unlike the bezel-less design on the Mi TV 4Pro 55-inch launched in 2018, this new 4X 50 inch TV is simple looking yet sleek. All ports including three HDMIs, two USB, S/PDIF and more are placed towards the right rear. The TV is accompanied by a wall mount - two side stands and not the centre stand. The remote is also sleek with minimal buttons. There is a Google Assistant voice search button, circular navigation pad with select button, dedicated keys for PatchWall and Android TV UI along with hotkeys.

Home electronics – Buy Once, Cry Once

PART 2. In my previous column (Buy Once, Cry Once), I considered areas in your A/V budget where you should consider splurging when building a system. The categories I listed—projection screens, amplifiers, speakers—are ones that can provide years of enjoyment, but don’t see regular or major upgrades. I also covered categories like subwoofers that have a real impact on a system’s overall performance, and ones like pre-wiring that can strongly affect a system’s future serviceability.
