Aldi currently has an enormous amount of technology on offer. The discounter will be offering a cheap The rmomix clone from Monday, February 22nd. At the end of next week, two more televisions will be on the shelves. Aldi appeals to different buyers: Those who want a home cinema with a large screen and those who are looking for a smart TV for their living room.
Medion X17882: giant television with 82 inch screen
The smart TV has a huge display diagonal of 82 inches and is therefore almost two meters long. But even if the size promises a high-end device, the features and the price speak rather the language of the middle class.
The Medion television has an LC screen that displays content in Ultra HD quality (2,160 x 3,840 pixels). According to the manufacturer, the television offers a static contrast of 5,000: 1 and a dynamic contrast of 10,000: 1.
- Attention: If you choose the Medion X17882, you should be able to set up a correspondingly large distance from the television in your living room. Otherwise a sharp picture is not guaranteed on such a large screen. You could also get a headache if you sit too close to the cigarette box.
You can get the smart TV from 25 February at Aldi Süd for 1,099 euros. In view of the size of the TV, this is an absolute ridiculous price. Other smart TVs of this size usually cost significantly more.
Medion X16596: Smart TV for every living room
If you don’t like it or simply can’t set up the appropriate space, you can fall back on the smaller Medion X16596. At 65 inches, it fits in any living room. Despite the smaller width, this model also has an Ultra HD quality. The LCD display in 16: 9 format offers a luminance of 350 candela – a value that is in the middle of the field. In addition to HDR, Dolby Vision (responsible for contrasts) and Wide Color Gamut are also involved. The latter is a detailed color representation. Motion compensation – the ability to prevent jerking when panning the camera quickly – is also part of the equipment of the 65-inch model – but this is missing in the more expensive Medion X17882.
Like the 82 inch smart TV, the Medion X16596 also offers a triple tuner for linear television and WiFi access; accordingly, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video are preinstalled as apps. In terms of connections, Medion has installed four HDMI and two USB ports.
The 82-inch model lacks both.

For the Medion X16596, Aldi Nord requires less than 600 euros – specifically 579 euros. From February 25th, the smart TV will be available online from the discounter. In direct comparison to the large television model from Medion, the Medion X16596 offers the better price-performance ratio.
