The Most Affordable “Good” 4K TV of 2018 /2019 Just Got Much Cheaper
Stephan Jukic – January 21, 2019
If you haven’t moved your home entertainment system up to 4K resolution with HDR support quite yet because you think most UHD TVs are just a bit too expensive then this might be an excellent option for you. Right now, Toshiba’s Amazon Fire 4K HDR TV is on sale through Amazon.com and Best Buy as well for its lowest price ever. This television was already the single cheapest ultra HD TV with some real quality to it among all the 2018 models and its current price knocks a further $100 off of that, brining what something like this would normally cost you to truly new low levels.
The 43 inch model is selling for just $199.99 and again, we repeat, this is the single best value offer in terms of both quality and price that we know of for anyone who wants decent picture performance, exceptionally good smart TV functionality and true, crystal clear 4K resolution with upscaling at an extremely low price. Yes it’s a 43 inch model but that is a perfect size for a starter TV in a small apartment or a den/bedroom television.
We recently reviewed this same Toshiba Amazon Fire 4K HDR TV and liked it a lot, most of all because of its combination of decent specs, a superb smart TV platform and fantastic prices for all available sizes. First, there’s the Amazon Fire platform, which is almost second to none and in the Toshiba Fire 4K TV means that you also get an Alexa remote control with premium-quality voice control features. These are the very best things about the Toshiba TV since many much more expensive TVs don’t even offer their own voice control technology.
Second, while it obviously doesn’t come with premium 4K HDR display performance features, what the Toshiba Fire does sincerely offer is good to great performance in several key specs for high image quality: the black levels and contrast the Toshiba Fire delivers are spectacularly good and its color performance is evenly solid. Furthermore, this 4K TV supports HDR content playback and the 4K resolution along with 4K upscaling of non-UHD content on this model are all as good as you’ll see them in much more expensive alternative models.
In basic terms, The Toshiba Fire is a good 4K TV, the best 4K TV for $200 or less in fact. That’s a virtual guarantee based in our professional opinion.
To sweeten the pot even further, Amazon is offering free shipping with their edition of the Toshiba Fire 4K HDR TV and Best Buy is for its part throwing in a free 30-day subscription to Sling TV. Both bonus offers come with their own specific conditions but you decide which you like more.
And here’s Amazon’s deal with the possible free shipping. Both retailers also sell both 50 and 55 inch editions that, while more expensive are still cheap as hell and come with just a couple extra features.
