Blaupunkt 4k Smart TV - video

The cheap Blaupunkt 24/207O is the best small TV I would recommend

TV features
Well, these are a lot of specifications, hopefully you make any use of them at all. The most important things about the Blaupunkt 40/138MXN I mentioned in the first paragraph. 
Some of the advantages of this TV besides from the price - it is a Smart TV (not Android) and it offers good picture quality in Full HD (not to be compared with premium brands like Sony and Samsung).

I like the simple design of it, even though it looks a bit cheap on first glance. The LED pane frames are thin but far from the thinnest in the class.


Since we've already discussed that - the cheapest Blaupunkt 40/138MXN I could find on the UK market is around £250, the same price as the similar in features Hisense 40A4BGTUK.
