So I recently have been researching everywhere possible on the internet for a good 4k tv for PlayStation 4 pro ad 4k cable... Anyways i am not a millionaire so I want to get the best budget TV, The TV's ive been looking I will list,any opinions I appreciate thanks btw.. im buying one in a few days,Canadian prices...


Sony 50" 4K UHD HDR LED Linux Smart TV (KD50X690E) 599.99, Currently best deal but skeptical about the HDR on this one.

Samsung Electronics UN49MU7000 49-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV (2017 Model) 749.99, More pricey but im willing to buy this if its significantly better than the x690E

LG 49UJ6500 49" 4K UHD Smart LED Television (2017) 797.99, Not sure about this one just really like how it looks.

VIZIO M50-E1 50" 4K Ultra HD Smart Led Home Theater Display (2017) Compatible with Amazon Alexa 697.99, On sale right now but the HDMI1 for only 4k confuses me.

read reviews by reviewers, on AV sites. The reason being that very few people here will have more than one 4K TV, even fewer will have more than one 4k TV setup in similar enough circumstances to make the comparison useful.

So what you'll actually get most of the time is billybob saying, 'I've got XYZ, and I think it's good.' And you have no idea whether billybob knows what a good image looks like, whether they have a good 4k source etc.

The rest of the time you'll get 'I like [insert brand here], so it's got to be a [inserted brand]', but again there are ranges within brands.

Or you might, if you are really lucky, get one of the 2-5 people that read the reviews, have taken it all in and actually understand the differences.

But can you tell them apart?

My money is on the sony, I've seen a relatives budget samsung and didn't like it, dealt with upscaling poorly, LG, don't have enough of an opinion on, but for that money you might find a better sony, and vizio, no idea who they are.

I'm somewhere between 2 and 3 in the list of people you might meet.
