Sparc 4K LED TV Philippines Review: Reasons to NOT buy it!


This is a very short review of the unknown Sparc LED TV. I owned one (I bought it from Lazada last December 2016), and now it’s broken. There are no Sparc service centers the in Metro Manila and the whole Philippines, not even China, where it was made. You only have 7 days to return it to Lazada it case it’s not working anymore. So after 7 days, there’s no way to replace your super cheap TV.

A lot bought this TV from Lazada a month ago. Even my friends was lured to buy it because it’s unbelievably cheap. It’s like a disposable TV, for 5,999, you’ll get a 32″ LED TV and for only 19,999, you can buy the Sparc 55″ 4K LED TV! It’s insanely cheap right? 55″ 4K TVs are priced around 70,000 to 200,000 pesos. Too good to be true? You can actually buy one here. It’s for real and it’s insanely cheap.

But be careful. Always bear in mind that there’s a catch if it’s too good to be true. Here’s the catch, or here are the “catches” if there’s such word.
1. Sparc TV doesn’t have their own website to showcase their TVs.
2. You can’t find any details about this TV manufacturer, not even in Wikipedia.
3. They don’t even have an official Facebook page, Twitter account, or Instagram profile.
4. Sparc is a ghost. They manufacturer cheap TVs, sell it, and they can disappear anytime.
5. Sparc is not a well-known and established TV manufacturing company.
6. Lazada doesn’t even care if your Sparc TV is broken (after the 7-day warranty)
7. Lazada doesn’t even know about the whereabouts of Sparc Service Centers, I’m pretty sure there’s none.
8. It has a lot of fake positive reviews in Lazada, to lure buyers to buy a TV.
9. Some legit reviews in Lazada posted a 5-star positive review about their Sparc TV, without even using it. After they received the item, and it turned on, then 5 stars to Lazada!
10. You cannot find any other legit reviews on the web about Sparc TV!

So be very careful when buying one. But if you have money to spend and you’re willing to buy a disposable TV for 20,000 pesos or less, then it’s your money to spend.

But… if you’re really excited to enjoy the glorious 4k resolution in a 55-inch screen and you’re willing to enjoy it for a few days, then the Sparc 55″ LED TV Black 5500UHDTV 4K (Sparc 55-inch premium UHD LED TV) is perfect for you!

Spend wisely. Don’t be cheap.

  1. Hi sir Bryan. Thanks for warning others.
    I was planning to buy this tv. I remember that on the first day of the lazada online revolution on November 11, this tv was on sale for 18,000 pesos. But there was no review and it’s an unknown brand. I couldn’t find information about this brand and I couldn’t find their service center in Manila.
    I suggest to undecided buyers who want an affordable 55″ 4k TV to go for either hisense or tlc. They’re being sold at abensons ortigas (in front of sm podium), ansons robinson galleria and sm megamall. 28,500 for hisense and 32,500 for tlc. I tested them and both can play x264 and x265 movies from my USB drive. But both have weak speakers so you have to buy additional speakers.
    Hisense and tlc are Chinese companies. There are hisense and tlc tvs being sold in the US and in Europe.
    And most importantly, there’s a 2 years warranty. They have service centers in Manila and other provinces found on their website and brochure and it’s home service so the technician will goto your place to repair it.
    If you have more cash though, I suggest sticking with Sony, Samsung or LG (I personally own a Sony 42″ 1080p W70B that I purchased in November 2014 for 28,500 at sm megamall. I’ve been using it almost everyday and it’s still working until now).
    Hope this helps other undecided buyers.

  2. wow that was super fast, december and january already broken, was also trying to purchase led tv at lazada glad to see this post.

    1. glad you did you’re research before buying an unknown tv. you’re lucky if it’s broken within 14 days, but if it will last more than 2 weeks, then too bad for you as lazada will not replace it nor refund you.

  3. i searched for sparc led tv service center in google and found this post. too bad there’s no service center anywhere in the world. Sparc does not even have a physical office nor an official website! My Sparc TV won’t turn on after 15 days. Lazada won’t give my money back because it’s beyond their 14 days easy return policy. I just wasted 20k, i should have bought another brand that is well known. hayyyyyyy…..
