any reviews? ten million dollar question hdr 10bit? input lag?

Wow! AKAI. That's a name from the past!

Not sure £700+ is a bargain though

Don't think it's the Akai some of us will remember form the past....I think it would be a safe bet it's a Vestel or UMC tv branded Akai under license

Edit: yup...Vestel

Wow, that looks VERY curved!

Presumably Android system as it mentions Google Play store access.

For a 65" curved UHD it sounds a good price to me, heat added.

Yeah I was thinking the same

I thought Akai were a dead relic from the past?

​I didn't want to mention the .... 'V' word so early in the thread

Akai still seems to exist as a corporation so perhaps they actually make it?

Heat just because I haven't heard Akai since the early 90's!

Wouldn't buy it myself though, suspect it'd be a bit poor

Seems like in the UK it's just licensed to someone else.

Akai still do great audio stuff.

Wow Akai! Haven't heard that in awhile.
Next it'll be Tandy 65 inch Oled X)
Good memories

Can't find any specs at all... No idea about contrast ratio, brightness, HDR support, 3D support, latency... Anyone have any ideas?

Any Ferguson Oled tv's

Where can insert my cassette.

​What is logic of that comment ? you wouldn't buy it because you suspect it would be a bit poor yet you are quite prepared to add heat because you haven't heard of them for a while ! Can't wait until the incas or aztecs are mentioned in a post ! next you'll be voting hot on something because you like the colour of it !

I meant audio cassette . Aiwa were renowned for their Hifi cassette decks and tape walkman.

UK Based company who own the rights to the AKAI brand - rkwltd.com/our…nds

Made the best 'walkman' with graphic equalizer ever.

Could be a 65" version of this one.

Without a full specification it can't be recommended because Vestel offer a wide range of options to their customers on how tv's are spec'd. I actually have a Vestel set myself and love it. Absolutely brilliant but Vestel operate like a PC supplier where the customer dictates what actually goes into the set. Also personally you need to be sure you want a curved screen. Personally I'm not a fan of curved at all.

Isn't Akai a Scottish company ..........

To quote wikepedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vestel

AKAI - for some countries, Vestel sets are branded Akai.

​Well you seem to be in 'tha nooh'!

One of the best TV during 1990s

As was Toshiba and Sharp. Sadly now mainly produced by Vestel or others.
