Compared to other OLED TVs in the market, the latest offering from Prism+ looks to be a steal. Specifically, with the Prism+ 65AL, the price (S$2,799 as of writing) is sufficiently attractive enough for anyone to sit up and take notice.
With quality OLEDs reserved mostly for the upper echelons of premium TVs, the 65AL is affordable enough such that one would unlikely from buyer’s remorse if the TV falls short of expectations. It’s an affordable way to experience OLED tech with minimal regret, so have a look for yourself –
Checking off all the essentials in the form of Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, HDR 10, the TV is packed with the minimum features to qualify itself to be a premium offering. Thus users will not miss out on enjoying their shows in the best possible quality on services like Netflix and Disney+.
The real downside to all is that you’re buying into dated tech. This is probably one of the reasons why the pricing for the TV is affordable. For TVs these days, the cost of the panels can be a bit of a lottery with the real differences coming in the form of additional frills but you won’t find them here.
Lacking HDMI 2.1 and an optimal TV OS are critical points to note if you’re looking to do more with the TV outside of just general content consumption.
Otherwise, as with most products from Prism+, it’s a good entryway into a new piece of tech without having to bust one’s budget in order to enjoy the privilege.
The real trick here is to purchase the Prism+ 65AL OLED TV further down the line if an upgrade is not urgent. With Prism+ known for offering massive discounts once the sale season starts, you’d be spoiled for choice once we hit the latter part of 2022 with other TV brands coming up with their own offerings.
GEEK REVIEW SCORE
With the Prism+ 65AL OLED TV, everyone can enjoy the best piece of display tech at an affordable price. If you can live with the downsides, this will be a fuss-free purchase.
