TFT-1038 from LENCO : Our view

LENCO TFT-1038 : A HD that makes the difference ?

The new available television already on sale , the LENCO TFT-1038 is a basic product. But in spite of this handicap it doesn’t prove unworthy. Let’s see how it is possible..
In its 10 inches model , this television offers a definition dedicated to the pictures treatment.
Surely considering this price you couldn’t expect something excessive. You can comfort yourself with the thought that it is a mass of technology.
Regarding technology, we are facing a model with a HD resolution.  The television set is an entry-level product; it therefore faces competitors with similar resolution screen.
Is it worth buying it ? This is the question we are going to answer.

TFT-1038 from LENCO – Design

With its design identical in every respect to the competition, this LENCO TFT-1038 could have difficulty distinguishing itself in a tense entry-level market.
Who said that entry-level products could not benefit from quality design? That’s the thought we can face each other with this TV set. That nothing is impossible for LENCO.
In short, the LENCO does the right thing on this model. An entry-level TV for which we would have liked more design work. With this LENCO TFT-1038, no frills. Basic and that’s almost all. It could even be one of those TV sets you turn on to listen to the news; like a radio.

TFT-1038 from LENCO – The screen

This LENCO is trying to stand out from the crowd with a TFT screen.
LENCO remains anchored in its technological choices and decides to equip its new television set with it. 
This model has a HD display. With a screen size of 10 inches, this TFT-1038 belongs to the series of small models in its range.Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
With a frequency of 60 Hz, the television’s fluidity is at the top of its range.
Even better, thanks to its advanced technology, the screen of this television provides a HD quality resolution.
To conclude the display part, we could say that it is average; but what more could be asked of a low-end device.

TV sound presentation LENCO TFT-1038

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 loudspeakers and a power output of 5 W.

The sound quality of this TV is in a word mediocre; you feel like you’re back in the past to the days of saturating speakers.

TFT-1038 from LENCO – Embedded intelligence

To smart TV aficionados, keep moving on. This model does not have one. In case you can’t do without it, and this TFT-1038 is your final choice, you will need to add a TV-Box next to it.

TFT-1038 from LENCO – Its connectivity

LENCO has ignored the number of ports and inputs available for this model. Probably a choice related to its entry-level positioning.
If you have many devices and decide to connect them with this TV, you will have to choose. There are fewer than on competing TV sets.

This model has a total of 6 connections, not too bad. Not all of your devices will be able to be connected. A difficult choice is on the way.

In detail here are the available connections:
1 USB port, 1 HDMI port, 1 audio output, 1 audio input, 1 headphone socket, 1 antenna input

TFT-1038 from LENCO – The conclusion

Finally, this new LENCO TFT-1038 is the TV to buy if you are not very careful about the options, or if you are looking for an alternative to troubleshoot.
Negative point on this TFT-1038 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.

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