Besides solving mathematical word problems and deciding on what to eat for lunch, my third biggest problem has always been choosing a gift my parents will appreciate—and hopefully use.
When they were younger, I could simply get them their favorite food, or take them to the mall to shop, but because of the ECQ, it was the first time I wasn’t able to get my parents a gift for Mother/Fathers day.
I also couldn’t think of anything to get them, because they either have it, don’t need it or “bawal” na.
So I sought help from the one big source or gift ideas —Shopee.
Admit it or not, you’ve probably spent hours just browsing through their endless list of products and you’ll often get that Bazinga! moment when you see something that could be a perfect gift for your loved ones.
I was doing an article on displays when I came across this listing for a 43-inch TV from a brand called Ace.
While it’s not a brand you see in stores (I think they are only sell online) its been getting a lot of attention for its most unique feature—the price!
This Ace 43″ LED TV Black (LED-909) was down to Php7,759 from its original price of Php23,000! That’s 63% off the regular price! And you can still get it at the same price during the Shopee 8.8 Sale!
The TV in my parent’s room, I think is almost as old as my nephew Calvin who’s now in grade 8. But you know older folks, they won’t replace something as long as its working, though I knew that they needed a bigger TV since I’ve seen them sitting closer to the screen.
Now I know what you’re thinking? Is it worth it?
We’ll get to that in a bit but first the specs:
- Display Resolution – 1080p
- Power Consumption – 60 watts
- Power Input – 220 Volts AC
- Available Connections – VGA, HDMI, AV and Audio Output (3.5mm)
- Features – USB 2.0 ready, can read MP4, JPEG file
- Size & Dimension: 96.7 cm (length) x 56 cm (width) x 59.7 cm (height)
- 43-inch size is just right for resolution
- Can read USB movies!
- Modern look and design
- Volume of speakers can be a bit low
Obviously, I was really swayed by the price, the old 32-inch LCD TV I got them cost almost Php30K and it had very limited features.
If you told me a few years ago that I would be able to buy a 40 plus inch TV for less than Php10K I would have laughed at your face, but thankfully that’s the reality now. And if you order it this weekend during the Shopee 8.8 sale you might even get it for less!
The TV itself looks quite good and looks way more expensive than its price tag. You can hang it on your wall but the TV stands are pretty sturdy too.
You get the standard connection ports for AV, VGA and two HDMI ports which you could use for cable or to connect your gaming console android box, videoke etc.
Lastly there are two USB ports which allows you to play movies, photos, music from your USB flash drive or even portable hard drive. This is the reason why I chose this over a Smart TV since my parents don’t want the complications of typing and searching for movies on their TV.
The TV controls are easy enough that you don’t need to read the manual.
Other noteworthy features of this Ace 43″ LED TV Black LED-909 is that you can also use it as a PC monitor and its energy saving feature.
Most importantly video quality is good, the display is bright, colors are accurate and you get good viewing angles.
So if you’re looking for a big screen TV for your bedroom or living room and don’t need smart TV features, the Ace 43″ LED TV Black LED-909 is a great option, and you’ll definitely be getting your money’s worth!
