This model sports a 55-inch screen, 4K LCD panel, and supports HDR 10+, impressive stuff from the get-go, all at an affordable price. Furthermore, the device is quite simple with zero complicated features. The screen itself looks pretty good. The colors it provides are decent and the maximum brightness is impressively good for the listed price.

4. TCL 6 SERIES
Superior 4K Ultra HD
If you want to get the top bang for the buck, we say check out the TCL 6 Series, the best value smart TV you can buy right now. This fella offers a beautiful 4K HDR performance and includes premium AV formats, not something you would expect for this price. Also included in the mix are such top features as the Dolby Vision support, full-matrix panels, and a wide range of colors available to consumers at a very fair price. The device offers 600-700 Nits of maximum brightness in HD mode. This gives you more than enough capabilities to display the brightest and darkest images in HD, making this fella a solid option for people who primarily stick to traditional cable or HD streaming. Even better, the brightness is largely accentuated by the excellent ratio contrast and top-notch levels of black. The full matrix panel and dozens of contrast control zones help the TV achieve higher contrast and could even make SDR content great. The scaling mechanism uses three main algorithms to add color: depth and clarity images below 4K, and the result is that most modern HD movies or shows look great on this TCL TV. Under the hood, the six series runs two main technologies: Full String and Quantum Dot filter. The first is what allows the TV to achieve maximum brightness of about 800 Nits without suffering from large halos, while the second makes the vivid colors really come to life. As for the image mode, we’re looking at movie, normal, sports, and live with hunting power; which is the default setting. You also can’t talk about the 4K TV performance without covering the Dolby Vision, a top HDR standard that has a metric ton of metadata to make the most of the TV. Content recorded and streamed in Dolby Vision contains more visual details than the standard HDR 10. Having it here in this fella at this price, says a lot of the value that TCL created here. Although QLED 6 Series stand out in image quality, the sound quality should not be overlooked. The 6 Series offers a number of ways to enhance the sound, such as upgrading the surround sound and enhancing the dialogue. For the listed price, we are thoroughly impressed.
