Bauhn (ALDI) TVs Review & Guide
Whether you’re a student on a budget or a movie buff channel surfing for an ‘immersive’ entertainment experience, Bauhn has a few televisions to choose from. These are exclusively sold through ALDI stores and tend to be seasonal items, meaning that once they’re all sold out, you’ll have to wait a few months for them to return.
ALDI has earned a glowing reputation for its seasonal Special Buys, including some major household appliances such as clothes dryers, fridges and air conditioners. Aussies love a bargain, and with ALDI’s appliances typically costing a bit less than the market average, shoppers are often found queuing outside stores ahead of them going on sale.

Should I put ALDI’s TV sale in my diary?
Whether you’re shopping for milk and eggs, or snapping up seasonal ski gear, it’s hard to resist the selection of promotional products available at ALDI stores. But does the reality match the hype?
If you love home entertainment, Bauhn delivers one of the cheapest, biggest TVs you’re likely to find in Australia. At 75”, it’s a huge TV with a relatively modest price tag – easily half that of many comparable brands. But while cheap, it does mean you could walk into an ALDI store expecting to spend $10 on the basics, but end up splashing out more than $1,500. As with any sales items, make sure you actually need what you’re buying, and you’re not just being swayed by the red sales signs.
The Bauhn 40″ Full High Definition LED LCD TV is said to provide full high definition quality at 1080p and shares a range of functions similarly featured with the brand’s pricier TVs. The ability to connect your PC also makes the ‘ATV40FHD-0618’ an ideal television for people who tend to stream on their laptop. But if you’re looking for bigger eye-candy, the Bauhn 75″ Ultra High Definition LED LCD TV is boasted to show ‘extreme detail’ with its Ultra High-Definition function.
If you have a busy schedule and can’t find time to watch your favourite program, many of the brand’s televisions come with the PVR function which allows you to record a show and catch up when it suits you. And for people who love streaming devices like Netflix and Stan, the televisions contain HDMI and VGA ports to link your laptop to the TV. You can similarly use the USB media playback function to enjoy video, picture and music already stored on a USB.
