Been looking for a cheap 4K TV but don't want to go with a complete no-name? Well, TCL isn't exactly household, but they've been making well-reviewed barebones sets for several years. Generally good reviews at Amazon.
Looking for a cheap-ish way into 4K resolution land? This TCL LE50UHDE5691 4K Ultra HD LED TV is cheapest ever by $20, and buying from TigerDirect saves you $78 compared to Amazon even after shipping.
The budget HDTV giant TCL has a 50-inch 4K Ultra HD LED TV for $600 at TigerDirect today after coupon. It'd cost you $149 more at Amazon. Mixed reviews, but it looks like people who had problems with the set just need to change settings based on input. See this review for more.
Does the HDTV have enough HDMI ports
and the blue, yellow, and red ports?
Also, does TCL have a good reputation
amongs its competitors out there?
The set has 4 HDMI ports, which is fairly typical and should be enough. You can always connect to a home theater receiver to get more connectivity. There's also a single "component" video input that's comprised of red, blue, and green cable connections.
TCL is generally viewed as a "budget" TV manufacturer, but a very good one in its class. Their sets consistently receive good reviews, and the TCL company uses components used by the "big name" sets. (For example, one of their most popular 40-inch LCD sets uses a Samsung display panel. I've owned it for two years now with zero problems.) This is probably the best 50-inch 4K Ultra HD set you'll find for under $1,000 right now.
Unfortunately, the $600 TigerDirect deal expired - presumably because of its popularity. You can still grab the set for $749 at Amazon by clicking the Get Deal button above, or click the 'Get price drop email alerts' link below the button to be notified the next time we see the price drop below its current position.
Thank you so much for replying back
with the helpful advice. I really appreciate
Since this is a 4K Ultra HDTV, would I need
to use 3D Glasses to watch the TV?
I am not interested in 3D TVs because I feel
it's unnecessary to throw away money on
something like that. Plus, I wear eyeglasses,
which makes it difficult even more.
Also, do you suggest waiting till January if
the prices come down for TCL, Samsung, and
others? Are LED TVs better than LCD TVs?
Is that why they are cheaper?
Just FYI this isn't a 3D HDTV so you won't need 3D glasses to watch the TV.
LEDs are similar to LCD TVs, most TVs you'll find these days are LED TVs and it actually won't have too much bearing on pricing.
