HKC 16M4 : the new HD
Today we are going to analyse the HKC 16M4, a basic model from HKC. A deeper analysis in order to check what this model is really worth.
First, the size : 16 inches on this device.
In spite of this size, the rendering and the picture result are good, without a doubt by means of the technology used .
Concerning technology, it is worth noting that this model is delivered with a HD resolution. From our point of view it is interesting. Given the price, this model appears as a good choice. Not too expensive but anyway it is made with elements which we think will withstand in the long run .
Is it worth buying it ? This is the question we are going to answer.
The design of the HKC 16M4
The first thing we always do is to analyze the design since it is the first thing that is obvious and also because it is important.
Could do better. This could be the overall opinion about this television set. However, it is not necessary to criticize too much; remember the price at which it is offered for sale!
In conclusion, even if design is important, it is not on this point that we judge the 16M4. You can put it in your living room ,it will not look out of place.
TV screen presentation HKC 16M4
Even for an entry-level model, this new HKC has a quality image, well calibrated and a very good native contrast.
With this new 16M4 HKC, the company makes an assumed technological choice.
The HKC 16M4 is available in the HD resolution. With a screen size of 16 inches, this 16M4 is at the bottom of its range.At the same time, we are dealing with a nice display on the screen.
HKC chooses a frequency of 60 Hz, this TV has a better rendering compared to its competitors, in the same category.
Finally, HKC has chosen to put advanced technology on this TV, which makes it possible to have an HD image quality .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s cheap; with the price that goes with it.
16M4 from HKC – The sound
In general, the sounds are well reproduced; but you have to forget about bass and low-midrange. It will be preferable to use an external system to enjoy better audio immersion.
The television set is equipped with two speakers for a sound power of 2.8 W.
In conclusion, the sound of this TV will barely play all the sounds. Bad in the high notes and in the low notes. It’s not great; but that’s enough for this range.
Presentation of the Smart TV part of the TV set HKC 16M4
Unfortunately on this model there is no smart TV. However, it can be considered as good news; indeed, you should have paid more for this TV set for a use that some of you would not have had. For the others, all you have to do is buy a TV-Box.

Its connectivity is decent for a basic range. You’ll have little choice.
In this price range, this TV offers a higher number of connections than most of its competitors.
It is with 10 possible connections that this 16M4 is presented. The HKC 16M4 is thus at the very top of its range. The choices offered by its connections are simply enormous.
In clear, the connections available on this model are:
1 USB port, 3 HDMI ports, 1 audio output, 1 audio input, 1 headphone socket, 1 antenna input, 1 component plug (Video), 1 composite plug (Y/Pb/Pr)

Our conclusion on the HKC 16M4
With the intention of making a difference this new 16M4 HKC intends to make a difference. Well thought out and well finished. This mid-range is a wise choice.
Negative point on this 16M4 is the absence of smart tv. It’s surprising in this day and age. But since we’re in a low-end product, why not.
The HD resolution has been chosen on this TV. A sufficient choice and well adapted to everyday use. But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time. By then Ultra 8k prices will have dropped.
In short, many positive points that make this TV a very good product. The following 3 points should be remembered:
the sound power, the display frequency, the depth of the colours.
