Ow! I know the 4K Mi TV is a bargain at its price, but what’s happening here? It’s claimed that using it a lot causes it to warp? Is that a thermal issue related to the shell material?
If you didn’t pay attention, each photo is of a different Mi TV, so this isn’t one person with a weird problem!
This again reinforces my rule to never be the first to buy.
For months, the Mi TV seemed like a unique product from Xiaomi that was really a bargain and well-made. Only now does the truth come out that there’s a fundamental material defect.
In the US and EU, Xiaomi would have to take all those back and either issue refunds or a replacement. China likely has no such consumer protections — another reason why buying any domestic China-market product is placing a bet. (India-based tech support for Dell is entirely ignorant of the legal term “material defect,” so don’t believe such a consumer protection issue is known worldwide!)
