Life E12845 from Medion : Test and analysis

Medion Life E12845 : A HD that makes the difference ?

The firm Medion is deciding today to launch a new mid-range model with its Life E12845.
Regarding technology, we are facing a model with a HD resolution.  This television is part of the main group of current TVs. It doesn’t completely stands out among its competitors with this choice of HD.
Should we let ourselves be convinced by this Life E12845 Medion ? All answer elements just after.

TV design presentation Medion Life E12845

The Medion Life E12845 appears as a real masterstroke of the brand regarding both its interior and exterior design.
The shapes are balanced and the overall rendering is beautiful to look at. A successful mid-range model.
This TV could simply be one of the best in terms of design for mid-range. It has nothing to envy from its competitors. Even when it’s off, you won’t get tired of looking at it; only happiness!

The screen of the Medion Life E12845

The designers of Medion have made this new TV set Life E12845. A new mid-range model with the characteristics of its time, a well calibrated image, and a high-performance processing.

The Medion Life E12845 is available in the HD resolution. Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
With a frequency of 50 Hz, we’re looking at a high-end TV. Perfect image and exceptional synchronization in game or movie mode.
In addition, Medion has decided to use its mastery of advanced technology on this device, which allows it to benefit from a high quality HD image resolution.
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.

The sound of the Medion Life E12845

The sound quality is correct but nothing more. The typical low-medium and mid-range sounds are far from what the competition offers. The sound of the Life E12845 still has the advantage of not being saturated. In any case, the installation as presented ex-factory is just sufficient for this television set
The television set is equipped with  two speakers with 8 W at output.

In conclusion, the sound of this TV will give you the majority of the sound spectrum. It’s average, but not of poor quality.

Life E12845 from Medion – The conclusion

The overall feeling about the product is satisfactory, it is not the best on the market, but it still allows to have an efficient television set.
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.

If there are any positive points to remember, here are 3 interesting ones:
the depth of the colours, the sound power, the display frequency.
