The 55-inch Xiaomi TV Q1E is one of the cheapest options for those of you who are looking for a 55-inch QLED panel TV. But before you decide to buy, it’s a good idea to first listen to what the advantages and disadvantages are:
Pros of Xiaomi TV Q1E 55 inches
1. Pretty premium design with thin bezels
The Xiaomi TV Q1E 55 Inch has a display that can be considered quite premium. The body is thin with a slim, almost bezel-less screen. The bezel and stand are made of aluminum, with an elegant silver color making them suitable to add to the aesthetics of the room in a modern home.
2. Good image quality, darker black color
With a QLED panel, of course, you can expect better picture quality with a wider color gamut and deeper blacks. The visuals that are presented look sharp and the colors are also much richer. Note that its QLED panel enables display of up to 1.07 billion colors, 97 percent DCI-P3, and 100 percent NTSC.
3. 4K resolution and HDR10+ and Dolby Vision support
The 55-inch Xiaomi TV Q1E has 4K resolution and supports HDR10+ and Dolby Vision. Watching HDR content on YouTube or movies on streaming platforms like Netflix and Disney+ HotStar that supports Dolby Vision feels more solid.
4. Support DVB-T2 . digital broadcasting
This TV supports DVB-T2 digital broadcasting. This means that you can capture digital TV broadcasts without the need for an additional STB. The search process for both analog and digital TV broadcasts is very fast. In about 1 minute, this TV managed to catch dozens of broadcast channels from various local TV stations.
5. Based on Android TV 10
The 55-inch Xiaomi TV Q1E is armed with the MediaTek 9611 chipset with a quad-core Cortex-A55 CPU and Mali-G52 GPU. The RAM is 2GB and the internal storage is 32GB. This TV adopts the Android TV 10 operating system and Xiaomi’s signature interface, Patchwall. Because it’s based on Android, of course you can download all the applications on the Google Play Store, including games. The performance is also fairly agile.
6. Great speaker in its price class
In total there are 6 speakers with a maximum power of 15W each. This speaker has supported features such as Dolby Audio and DTS-HD. The sound produced sounds clear and powerful, above our expectations for an average TV under 10 million rupiah. The bass is quite kicking, and the sound of dialogue when watching movies also sounds clear.
In essence, if you don’t have the funds to buy a soundbar or other sound system, the built-in speakers from the 55-inch Xiaomi TV Q1E are very adequate.
7. Connectivity is quite complete
This TV has 3 HDMI ports (1 supports eARC), two USB 2.0, Composite In (AV), CI slot, Ethernet (LAN), antenna, optical digital audio output, and a 3.5mm jack. For wireless connection, there is support for Bluetooth 5.0 and WiFi 2.4/5GHz.
Disadvantages of Xiaomi TV Q1E 55 inch
1. The default remote is still an old model
In the sales package of the 55-inch Xiaomi TV Q1E you will get an old minimalist remote. We ourselves prefer the new model remote which, although bigger and has lots of buttons, like the one on the Xiaomi TV A2 and Xiaomi TV P1E series. The reason? Because it feels more practical when accessing various things.
2. TV viewing angle should be better
The viewing angle of this TV for us is a little unsatisfactory. We still notice a change in color and image quality when watching from a side or not from the center.
3. It will be more interesting if you use a single-stand
Because of its wide size, you certainly have to prepare a long table if you don’t want to install it on the wall. Moreover, the Xiaomi TV Q1E has two legs (not a single-stand like the Xiaomi TV A2) which are located on the left and right ends. The length of this TV reaches 1.23 meters, so prepare a table that is longer than that.
Those are some of the advantages and disadvantages of the 55-inch Xiaomi TV Q1E. For those who are interested, this product is sold at a price of USD $571 and can be purchased online through Mi.com.
