If you want a 4k Ultra HD TV set and a brand name on it you’ll have to pull out quite a nice amount of money from your pocket, but before you do, let’s see what are your options!
55-Inch and 65-Inch Class 4k Ultra HD TVs
Samsung F9000 Series 4K Ultra HD TVs
The Samsung F9000 series of Ultra HD 4K TVs is available in 55-inch and 65-inch screen sizes, both versions run on Samsung’s Quadmatic Picture Engine, which utilizes a four-step process for delivering images, which is comprised of noise minimization, upscaling to 4K, image enhancement of less-than-4K content, and signal analysis. As for the software, F9000 TVs feature Samsung’s Smart TV with the Smart Hub interface, allowing for the use of apps, social networks, and more.
Sony XBR X850A and X900A Series 4K Ultra HD TVs
From Sony we have the newer X850A series that includes the 55-inch and 65-inch models, and the X900A series which is also available in 55-inch and 65-inch screen sizes.
Both series feature Sony’s TRILUMINOS Display with 3,840 x 2,160 resolution, 4k upscaling via the new 4K X-Reality PRO chip, One-touch mirroring, TV SideView, and Wi-Fi. See how XBR X850A and X900A series compare to each other.
LG LA9700 and LA9650 4k Ultra HD TVs
LG comes with LA9650 and LA9700 series, both available in 65-inch and 55-inch screen sizes. Both the LA9650 and LA9700 series feature a built-in HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) decoder, which can play Ultra HD content directly from a USB flash drive, an industry first. Thanks to LG’s Tru-ULTRA HD Engine, these TVs can upscale any type of content to near Ultra HD quality to deliver incredible Ultra HD picture quality with a 178-degree viewing angle and sharp, blur-free images.
The LA9700 series goes a step further with NANO FULL LED backlighting for improved contrast, brightness and color consistency. For a comparison side by side check out this LG LA9700 and LA9650 comparison chart.
Toshiba L9300U Series 4K Ultra HD TVs
Toshiba brings in the L9300U Series which is available in 58-inch, 65-inch and 84-inch screen sizes. L9300u televisions run on Toshiba’s proprietary second gen CEVO 4K Quad+Dual Core Engine and feature Resolution Restoration, Color Restoration, and Surface Brilliance Enhancement technologies to improve image quality.
84-Inch Class 4K Ultra HDTVs
The following are the flagship TVs from Samsung, Sony, LG and Toshiba. If the 55-inch and 65-inch class TVs are somewhat more affordable, for these ones you’ll have to dig deeper into your pocket.
And if you’re likely to buy one of these, I’d suggest to make a visit to the nearest electronics store and have them compared side by side. These may have the biggest screen, best picture quality and the latest features that you can expect from a 4K TV, but you have to check it for yourself to see if their price is justified. And by check it for yourself I mean have them in front of you, play with them and study them in detail cause in my opinion all the good reviews out there are just not enough to open your wallet. And after that, if you’re blown away by any of these, you can get back home to search for the best deals and decide from where to shop.
In the meanwhile you can click on them to see their current price and what others are saying.
