K56U912 from Kevin : Our view

Presentation of the Kevin K56U912

Kevin ranks among the important actors on the television market, and proposes with this K56U912, an interesting screen tested by our Laboratory.
First, the size : 32 inches on this device.
Small but tough ; hopefully seeing its size , it will perhaps follow you (house move or holidays…). Good opportunities to test its reliability in the long run.
Regarding technology, we are facing a model with a HD resolution.  It could be said that this model gathers all the expected characteristics. Whether we consider its aesthetics or its size, the engineers of Kevin have developed a television admittedly a middle-range one, but a quality one anyway.
Why can we consider this K56U912 as convincing in spite of its mid-range position ? This is what we are going to discover in this article.

K56U912 from Kevin – Design

Sober but in line with current trends. Kevin has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
No revolution concerning the aesthetics of this K56U912. We are in line with market standards. At least we know what we’re buying: a television set.
The shapes are balanced and the overall rendering is beautiful to look at. A successful mid-range model.
The Kevin K56U912 is simply flat.
With a size of 32 inches, As far as the base is concerned, there are also things to say. 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.
A noteworthy innovation for this model is the use of the Slim design technology.
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 Kevin K56U912

The Kevin has a correct and well-calibrated image quality, but you have to do with a limited native contrast that is suitable for daytime viewing; forget about home theater programs in the dark.
With this new model, Kevin confirms one of its technological choices. 
With regard to the display, the company proposes a HD resolution. It’s better than the others for a TV in its class.
Kevin presents this K56U912 with a screen of 32 inches; this television belongs to the series of small models in its range.Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
By providing it with a frequency of 60 Hz, this makes this TV set better positioned than its competitors. A perfectly synchronized image that will delight you for your home cinema.
Even better, thanks to its advanced technology, the screen of this television provides a HD quality 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.

K56U912 from Kevin – The sound

A brief listening allows us to see that it does not work miracles. The sound is far from exceptional. That’s enough for TV shows, but not for home theater showings.
The equipment consists of  two speakers and provides a sound power of 10 W.

In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The K56U912 Kevin is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.

K56U912 from Kevin – Embedded intelligence

Our conclusion on the Kevin K56U912

Finally, this new Kevin K56U912 is a television set that can go anywhere; it can meet the majority of needs.
Negative point on this K56U912 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.
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.

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