Audio and Video

There is DTS Sound System in the Primo X4, that’s why the audio output is clean. Plugging in a pair of headphones has a rather disastrous effect on stereo quality with crosstalk rising to very high levels.

Pricing:

Now let’s talk about a rather pleasant part of this product – price. Well configured Primo X4 costsBDT 22,990 only! Considering the specs the pricing is pretty good and we do not just say “all.” In order to receive the same quality display, processor and built-in memory of well-known manufacturers, you will have to pay a double at least and here it turns out it is an affordable option.
