Another Amazon early Black Friday deal: 55 inch TCL 4K Roku smart TV at 50% off
Stephan Jukic – November 22, 2016
Here’s another excellent little Black Friday deal that’s already in effect from none other than Amazon.com. The online retailing giant is now selling one of TCL’s 55 inch Roku 4K TVs with the excellent Roku smart TV platform for a massive 50% discount that brings this sizeable 4K TV’s price down to just $399.99.
Now the TCL US5800 4K UHD smart TV isn’t an HDR model and it’s display specs are definitely not in the same class as those of major premium brand televisions from Son, Samsung, Vizio or LG but this LCD ultra HD TV is still worth a serious look for a few main reasons.
First, it still does offer some great picture quality with full 4K UHD resolution and 120Hz motion interpolation (with 60Hz native refresh) and a full and completely modern connectivity package that includes HDMI 2.0, HDCP 2.2 and HEVC.
Secondly, it comes with the genuinely excellent Roku TV smart platform, which we have seen at work in the Roku brand’s smart TV set-top box systems with HDR and 4K UHD support. Roku not only offers a wide range of streaming 4K content options, it’s also very user-friendly and robustly decked out with all sorts of other steaming media apps and other user technologies.
Finally, as we said above, this 55 inch model is selling for a ridiculously affordable $399 while offering a hefty 55 inch display. That’s a nearly unbeatable price for a U.S market 4K TV in this size range and something very much worth considering for those of you who are looking for a very basic, no frills budget starter TV that delivers the essentials even if it lacks some more premium features like high dynamic range, wide color gamut and Dolby Vision or HDR10 support.
Even the vast majority of 4K PC monitors don’t quite come priced like this and at the very least, the US5800 can be used as one excellent and huge 4K PC monitor with some great built-in smart functionality for the full 4K UHD streaming content experience. This is something many pricier Ultra HD monitors can’t offer.
So, if some of the above information seems appealing to your needs, go ahead and check out this new, early Black Friday deal from Amazon.com for the TCL US5800 with Roku TV. It’s already in effect.
