Kogan.com have just announced a new range of Kogan Agora Smart 4K LED TVs. In typical Kogan form, they’re pitching these UHDTVs as affordable for everyone. Typically that’s meant they’ve really skimped on features, in particularly, refresh rate, however this time round, there’s a difference.

The new TVs range from 49″ up to the 65″ and importantly at least 1 of them, the 55″ (Series 8 KU8000) now has a serious refresh rate of 120Hz. Sure its not the 200Hz some brands are offering, but its a big step up from the 50-60Hz often found at this price point. If you jump on early, Kogan are offering all 3 models of the new range with even further presale discounts.

All TVs feature internet access and a PVR (byo USB thumbdrive), which gives you the power to record your favourite shows straight onto your USB or hard drive.

Kogan.com Founder & CEO, Ruslan Kogan said,

“For over a decade we’ve been committed to making the latest technology more affordable. In 2007, this meant a 46” dumb thick LCD TV for $2999 which was the first time the $3000 barrier was broken for such a TV. Today, we’re launching a bigger, better, thinner Smart LED TV for $429. It’s a true sign of how far we’ve come and we’re honoured to be able to delight our customer base of over a million Aussies in this way,”
