Is this 4k tv worth it? what makes the TV high quality

Solution
Specs on TV are pretty much useless.
There are no standards as to how you measure contrast ratio or judge color accuracy. Try to find reviews that measure the set and provide calibration settings. That will tell you how accurate the set really is.
A cheap 4k TV has a 4k LCD panel but doesn't have quality LED backlight or dimming. It may have lousy color and poor contrast. It will have horrible upscaling and since almost anything you watch will be 1080p or 1080i the picture have more motion artifacts than a FHD TV.
A good quality FHD TV will look much better than a bad QHD TV. Unless you are sitting very close to the screen the additional pixels aren't even visible.
If you are on a tight budget I would consider a used plasma TV.
Hello.

Look at the reviews. Are you going to take a chance with a TV that can last no more than a year, has firmware issues, flashing backlighting, washed out colors and occasional dead pixels? Sceptre uses the lowest quality parts for this. Also, it technically isn't even a 4k TV, as it has an extra white pixel for increased brightness. It's more along the lines of "3k" really.

The only 4k TV I recommend is OLED. Any LCD/LED is not worth it for me, since I always see the blurring when there's fast movement. Be it 120CMR, 144hz, 1ms, I see blurring. And there will always be blurring with LCD.
