Cyber Monday Deals: Here’s One For A 50 Inch 4K HDR Amazon Fire TV At $299
Stephan Jukic – November 24, 2018
So far this has got to be the single lowest price we’ve seen for a decent-sized 4K TV that’s actually good and worth buying and we definitely can’t find much to fault with it. Slightly in advance of Cyber Monday and Cyber Week, Amazon has already started rolling out a number of discounts on major electronics.
One of these is this fantastic price OF $299 for Toshiba’s 50 inch Amazon Fire 4K HDR TV with (obviously) the Amazon Fire smart TV platform baked right into it. This particular 4K TV model normally goes for $400 but thanks to a $100 Cyber Monday discount, you can get it right now at its new wicked price.
Furthermore, the Fire TV platform in this TV is the same high end smart TV system that’s found in Amazon’s streaming media devices such as the Fire TV 4K streamer and we respect its user-friendliness and, most of all, its high level of content access, with hundreds of thousands of movies, TV shows, documentaries and so forth available with just a bit of clicking around.
Now, this Toshiba Fire 4K HDR TV isn’t exactly on par with the display power that Samsung or Sony deliver with their premium ultra HD HDR television models but it’s also nothing to sneeze at. In fact, the Toshiba 50LF621U19 50 inch model delivers some great picture quality that’s easily comparable to that found in many name brand 4K TVs with prices three times as high. It also supports basic HDR display functionality and full HDR pass-through from content sources. In other words, it’s an excellent starter, bedroom or student 4K TV that comes with great basic display specs and a native smart TV platform that’s actually better than anything you’ll find in even the best of Samsung’s or LG’s 4K HDR TVs.
Another premium feature that the Toshiba 50LF621U19 and all other budget Fire 4K TVs also offer is the inclusion of an Amazon Alexa voice-controlled remote. Normally, voice control is something you’d only find in premium name brand 4K TVs but here it is included with one of the cheapest UHD Televisions you can find anywhere. And the Alexa remote doesn’t offer crappy voice control either, it’s recognized for the intuitive quality of its listening AI technology.
The bottom line here? We give this Cyber Monday deal a strong recommendation, partly because we respect the value it offers for what it costs and partly because our professional reviewers’ opinion of the Fire 4K HDR TVs themselves is pretty high considering their prices.
