Devant 55WIZ830 55-inch LED TV unboxed, in the flesh

Devant 55WIZ830 55-inch LED TV unboxed, in the flesh

Devant sent us another huge TV set last week. This is the second unit they’ve delivered for review (the first one we got to keep) and this time, it’s the biggest in their line-up — a 55-inch 3D LED TV.

We’ve actually seen this model in store shelves since last month and I really liked the design and slim profile of this one. The polished silver and crystal design coupled with a very thin bezel gives it that elegant and sexy look.

We tried to unbox the whole set over the week-end and the thing is actually pretty heavy (weighs 34kg). Assembly was quick and easy — took me less than 10 minutes and involved a total of 6 screws.

The back of the display panel looks very bare but the essential ports are all there — 3 HDMI ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports, antenna, VGA, SPDIF, component and headphone jack. The USB port supports files such as JPEG, MP3 and MKV for direct playback.

One of the first things I actually noticed during unboxing is the TV stand (it actually reminded me of the stand design used by Samsung before in their Series 7 line). It feels a bit wobbly though so you have to screw them in really tight.


The set comes with this simple remote which is also used when switching the Smart TV function for access to YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and a basic browser.

There’s a WiFi dongle included in the package which you can plug at the back on one of the USB ports.

For the 3D feature, Devant included 2 active 3D glasses. The TV supports 2D to 3D conversion but it’s not as refined and blurry-free compared to watching native 3D content.

Here are the specs for this unit.

Devant 55WIZ830 3D LED TV specs:

3,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio

If I remember correctly, this specific model retails for about Php119,950 (with a lot of freebies in the package) but some online stores (esp. the Multiply stores) sell them for under Php85,000.

    DEvant TV’s are good and somehow reasonably priced, though i have a problem with the built in player of devant, if the movie is more than 3hrs it stops. (i was watching LoTR and Saving Private Ryan)

    • JoeTech says:

      anong file format gamit mo sir? MKV ba na 1080p na AC3 audio code?
      Ako kasi may Skyworth, pag naka 5.1 ang audio code walang sound, saka pag 720p pataas, nawawala sound pag dating ng 1hr and 45 min. kaya bumili na lang ako ng cheap media player.

  7. JoeTech says:

    Ayos sana, kaso 6ms ang response time and 120hz ang motion rate, pwede na pero hindi kasing crisp ng mga bagong samsung and lg led tv

    It is not fully ISDB-T ready!

    Yuga, better check this! I believe that chideji is correct. This comes from the OFFICIAL ISDB-T PHILIPPINES TEAM.
