HKC ranks among the important actors on the television market, and proposes with this 32F1D, an interesting screen tested by our Laboratory.
A quick glimpse at the specification sheet : 32 inches.
In spite of this size, the rendering and the picture result are good, without a doubt by means of the technology used .
Beside, this television is equipped with a HD resolution. Attractive, user friendly, minimum bulk , quality image and sound, everything has been carefully finalized in this television, in order to make a nearly perfect product.
Has the HKC succeeded in the challenge of an efficient television set. This is what we are going to see just after .
32F1D from HKC – Design
The HKC 32F1D appears as a real masterstroke of the brand regarding both its interior and exterior design.
Very different from its predecessors, the brand tries here to differentiate itself to meet the needs of consumers.
A product that is correct in view of its price. A sleek but effective design. It has the potential to compete with other TV sets on the market.
The HKC 32F1D adopts a standard shape with a flat screen.
With an interesting size of 32 inches, Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. Indeed it has a double base, in which we have a division where each part of the base has its place. With this, the TV is exactly the same on both sides, thus creating a very symmetrical and stylish TV that can be enjoyed in any room.In conclusion, HKC has worked seriously on the design of this TV set. It’s efficient and it will allow you with this 32F1D to have a beautiful object in your living room.
The screen of the HKC 32F1D
The display of this 32F1D is handled with care. This will allow connoisseurs to enjoy a quality rendering in home theater mode. The colours are faithful and deep black.
With this new model, HKC confirms one of its technological choices.
With regard to the display, the company proposes a HD resolution. Which is already above the average resolution of the range.
HKC presents this 32F1D with a screen of 32 inches; this television is at the bottom of its range.Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
Designed with 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 in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.
TV sound presentation HKC 32F1D
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 32F1D still has the advantage of not being saturated. In any case, the installation as presented ex-factory is just sufficient for this television set
In terms of sound equipment, the TV is equipped with two baffles and a power output of 6 W.
In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The 32F1D HKC is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.

This TV has the correct resolution, nothing more. Producing and marketing TVs today in HD is often sufficient and well suited for ‘basic’ uses. But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time. It is therefore a temporary and/or occasional choice. You’ve been warned.
Finally, we will note all the positive points that are to be added to the credit of this television set. Here are 3 that I find interesting:
the sound power, the display frequency, the depth of the colours.
