Samsung UE40MU6400U

Rating: 4.9

Samsung UE40MU6400U

This 102cm TV will be a wonderful decoration for both a small living room and a bedroom. The body of the device is painted in silver. At the same time, the screen bezel turned out to be very thin, which cannot but rejoice. The screen of the device is made using TFT PLS technology, which speaks of high-quality color rendition and almost maximum viewing angles. It is also important that the display has a 4K resolution. HDR support as well. What is missing here is only an increased refresh rate, but it is foolish to expect this from a TV, the cost of which does not exceed 38 thousand rubles.

Such a device could not do without Smart TV. Here the technology is based on the operating system Tizen. Internet connection is carried out either via cable or thanks to the Wi-Fi 802.11n module. There is also Bluetooth here to help you connect some wireless devices. If you are interested in connecting game consoles and other electronics, then there are three HDMI connectors for this purpose. Well, a couple of USB ports are designed to help you connect a flash drive and an external hard drive. You can also note the presence of two TV tuners here, allowing you to watch both terrestrial and, say, satellite television.

Advantages

  • All digital TV standards are supported;

  • Smart TV available;

  • Built-in two independent TV tuners;

  • Quite good acoustics – the total power is 20 W;

  • There is a light sensor;

  • Beautiful silver body color;

  • Not forgotten Bluetooth;

  • A large number of connectors.

disadvantages

  • There is no headphone output;

  • Standard scan rate.

LG 43UJ740V

Rating: 4.8

LG 43UJ740V

Another TV in our rating with a thin screen bezel. The body is also painted in silver here. It's a great choice for those looking to make their TV stand out from all other consumer electronics. The display installed here was created using IPS technology. The South Korean company LG has mastered this method better than others, so the buyer is waiting for the maximum viewing angles and almost perfect color rendition. It should be noted that 4K resolution here is complemented by HDR support. If you watch the relevant content, you can enjoy the most realistic picture.

Of course, the screen isn't the only positive thing about a TV. Someone may be pleased with two TV tuners and support for all digital television standards – from terrestrial to satellite. Not bad here is the acoustics, consisting of two speakers with a power of 10 watts. You can hardly demand even louder sound from a 43-inch TV. Finally, one cannot fail to note the webOS operating system, which works almost perfectly – one feels that the device has received a powerful processor and a large amount of RAM.

Advantages

  • Smart TV available;

  • Built-in modules Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11ac;

  • There are four HDMI connectors and two USB ports;

  • There are two TV tuners;

  • Light sensor is not forgotten;

  • All digital TV standards are supported;

  • There is a headphone jack;

  • The cost reaches 45 thousand rubles.

Sony KD-43XE7096

Rating: 4.7

Sony KD-43XE7096

This TV made it to our rating primarily due to its very narrow bezel. Only the lower part turned out to be the widest – this is where almost all the electronics are located. The screen is a 42.5-inch IPS panel. You can rest assured that you will see a picture with perfect color rendition, from whatever angle you look at it. Also, the Japanese manufacturer has introduced HDR support here, thanks to which the colors change to more realistic ones, while they begin to persist even in the shadows. You can only regret the standard refresh rate of the display.

The Japanese installed Opera TV as the operating system. This is a very good option, but you should not count on a record number of applications. Also, the manufacturer is generous with a large number of connectors. In particular, the buyer is expected to have three USB ports and the same number of HDMI sockets. Even the headphone jack is not forgotten, and it disappears from most modern LCD TVs! Nothing bad can be said about the speakers installed here, the total power of which is 20 watts.

Advantages

  • A large number of connectors;

  • All digital TV standards are supported;

  • There is a headphone output;

  • Built-in two TV tuners;

  • Excellent 4K display with HDR support

  • Smart TV is available.

disadvantages

  • Missing Bluetooth;

  • Normal sweep frequency;

  • The price tag may seem overpriced.

The best 46-49-inch 4K TVs

Samsung QE49Q7FAM

Rating: 4.8

Samsung QE49Q7FAM

The cost of this TV reaches almost 100 thousand rubles. This is not due to the screen diagonal, which is 48.5 inches. The fact is that the display of this TV is made using QLED technology. Quantum dots are known to be able to emit light on their own (backlighting is only partially used). As a result, the dark areas of the screen will be exactly dark – they hardly glow. Needless to say, this results in near perfect blacks?

Like other TVs reviewed in this rating, Samsung QE49Q7FAM has HDR support. This is especially felt when playing exclusive projects for Sony PlayStation 4. It is suggested to connect external electronics using four HDMI connectors. Also on the case, you can find three USB ports for connecting an external hard drive, flash drive and other peripherals. A stable working Smart TV is also present here, so you can watch content online. The device connects to the router via the Wi-Fi 802.11ac standard, which allows you to watch even videos with a very high bitrate. And there is also Bluetooth, with which you can use, for example, a wireless headset.

The device has three TV tuners. They are all completely independent. This allows you to watch terrestrial and satellite TV at the same time, enjoying the Picture-in-Picture function. Finally, one cannot fail to note the built-in acoustics. Its total power is 40 W, while low frequencies are played by the subwoofer.

Advantages

  • A large number of connectors;

  • The operating system is installed Tizen;

  • Powerful speaker system with surround sound;

  • There are three TV tuners;

  • Great 4K display with QLED technology

  • Screen refresh rate increased to 200 Hz;

  • All digital TV standards are supported;

  • There are modules Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11ac.

disadvantages

  • There is no headphone output;

  • Very high cost.

LG 49SJ810V

Rating: 4.8

LG 49SJ810V

Beautiful 4K TV with a silver casing. The framing here turned out to be extremely thin, while the stand is made in the form of a smooth arc. The TV is estimated by Russian sellers at 65 thousand rubles. In this regard, do not think that this model is the star of our rating. No, the product has a couple of drawbacks. But they are so insignificant that you stop remembering about them immediately after they become known. Instead, you never stop staring at a gorgeous IPS display that not only has 4K resolution, but also HDR support. The 49.5-inch screen is especially striking when watching action scenes, because the scanning frequency here is brought up to 120 Hz.

This TV is capable of boasting a large number of connectors. The South Koreans have not even forgotten about the headphone output, which has already disappeared from most models. In this case, you can also connect a wireless headset, for which Bluetooth will be used. As you might guess, the device has a Smart TV function, thanks to which the buyer will be able to watch content located in the vastness of the global web. The product also includes two TV tuners that allow you to watch terrestrial and satellite TV at the same time.

But what about the disadvantages? Perhaps, at least somehow you can pay attention only to the speaker system. It consists of two speakers with a total power of 20 watts. For such a large TV, this is not enough – some users will definitely connect speakers. But on the other hand, the power consumption of this model does not exceed 85 W, which is good news.

Advantages

  • There are four HDMI connectors and three USB ports;

  • Built-in wireless modules Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11ac;

  • There is a headphone output;

  • Beautiful silver body with thin bezels;

  • There are two TV tuners;

  • All digital TV standards are supported;

  • The screen has maximum viewing angles;

  • Smart TV is present;

  • Display refresh rate increased to 120 Hz.

disadvantages

  • The cost is not very low;

  • Not the most powerful built-in speakers.

Sony KD-49XE8096

Rating: 4.6

Sony KD-49XE8096

Another Japanese TV in our ranking. It also boasts 4K resolution and HDR support. Its body is painted in the usual black color. By tradition, the framing has turned out to be very narrow, which is good news. The screen of the device has a diagonal of 48.5 inches. It was created using IPS technology, which speaks of realistic colors and maximum viewing angles. And, of course, a device for 70 thousand rubles. couldn't help but get two independent TV tuners. This design allows you to simultaneously watch terrestrial and satellite television. This is especially true for guests of our country who want to watch both Russian and foreign TV channels.

As befits a modern TV, the Sony KD-49XE8096 offers Internet functionality. For this, the operating system is installed here Android. Needless to say, a huge number of applications have been created for this OS? The connection to the router can be carried out using Wi-Fi 802.11ac. As for external electronic equipment, it is connected via four HDMI connectors and three USB ports.

In a word, this is a very good choice for those who want to get a TV with the ability to connect a large number of other devices. The device is also pleased with the image quality, because this is a proprietary feature of Sony TVs, for which an overpayment is made.

Advantages

  • A large number of connectors;

  • Even the headphone output is not forgotten;

  • Smart TV is present;

  • Screen with excellent color reproduction and maximum viewing angles;

  • Built-in Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth modules;

disadvantages

  • Screen refresh rate – only 60 Hz;

  • The acoustics could be more advanced;

  • The price tag cannot be called low.

Best 4K TVs 50-55 inches

LG OLED 55B7V

Rating: 4.9

LG OLED 55B7V

Our rating could not do without OLED – TV. It is, of course, the creation of the company LG Electronics. Called OLED 55B7V has a 4K display with a diagonal of 54.6 inches (139 cm). A thin silver frame does not distract the eye at all. The device is placed on the curbstone using an elegant stand. OLED – the matrix allows you to enjoy the perfect color reproduction even in the daytime, even with the lights off. Black colors here are exactly black, you can be sure of that.

Separately, it should be noted that the manufacturer raised the scan frequency to 120 Hz. It feels good when watching all sorts of action films – the picture is as smooth as possible. Another undoubted advantage of the TV is its acoustic system, consisting of four speakers with a total power of 40 watts. It feels like even the bass is well developed here, which cannot be said about most of the TVs reviewed above. Nothing bad can be said about the set of connectors used here. Two TV tuners should also please the buyer, allowing you to watch TV from different sources. In a word, if you are ready to spend about 90-100 thousand rubles, then this is the best choice!

Advantages

  • There is Smart TV;

  • Chic OLED – 4K display with HDR support

  • Screen refresh rate increased to 120 Hz;

  • Built-in two independent TV tuners;

  • There is support for all digital TV standards;

  • Great speaker system;

  • Four HDMI ports and three USB ports;

  • There are wireless modules Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11ac;

  • A relatively affordable price tag for OLED – TV.

disadvantages

  • No headphone output;

  • Low speed LAN port.

Samsung QE55Q6FAM

Rating: 4.8

Samsung QE55Q6FAM

If in LG they develop OLED – direction, then top Samsung TVs get a QLED-screen at their disposal. In particular, such is the model under the QE55Q6FAM index, for which in Russian retail they ask no more than 100 thousand rubles. The display installed here has a diagonal of 54.6 inches. Of course, the buyer is waiting for 4K-resolution and full HDR support. If we compare it with the aforementioned OLED – TV, then the standard scan frequency immediately attracts attention. In many other respects, the Samsung product is still superior to the competitor. For example, three TV tuners are built here at once. And Tizen is able to boast of a large number of applications if you go to the corresponding online store. The two devices are equal only in terms of the acoustic system – speakers with a total power of 40 W are also installed here, giving out excellent bass.

In general, the buyer will get everything they could possibly want. A large number of connectors are installed here, while you can connect to the router via Wi-Fi 802.11ac. However, it still recommends paying attention to OLED – a competitor. Unfortunately, this TV is still not capable of producing perfect blacks, which is to blame for the current development of quantum dot technology.

Advantages

  • Great universal remote control included;

  • Very good QLED display with realistic color reproduction

  • There are three TV tuners;

  • Support for all digital TV standards has been implemented;

  • Smart TV is present;

  • Four HDMI ports and three USB ports;

  • Decent acoustics;

  • There are modules Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11ac.

disadvantages

  • Screen refresh rate – only 60 Hz;

  • Not the most affordable price tag.

Sony KD-55XE9005

Rating: 4.7

Sony KD-55XE9005

As you know, Sony almost always makes some markup for the brand. But in the case of the Sony KD-55XE9005, this may seem like overkill. More than 99 thousand rubles are asked for this TV, while it does not have a QLED- or OLED – panel. Nevertheless, he got into our rating for a reason. The fact is that its creators tried to squeeze everything out of IPS technology. We guarantee that the untrained viewer will be delighted with the image. Direct LED backlighting can create local dimming, so blacks will be very close to ideal. The HDR technology also works great here. But the buyer should be even more pleased with the screen refresh rate, which reaches 100 Hz here.

Unfortunately, this is otherwise a typical modern LCD TV. Sony did not tinker with the speaker system, introducing a pair of speakers with a total power of 20 watts. Needless to say, this is not enough for a device with a 55-inch screen? It uses Android as the operating system, which can no longer be included in the obvious shortcomings. The same cannot be done with the headphone jack, which is disappearing from many TVs. But the power consumption, reaching 189 W, is sure to upset someone. However, it is unlikely that a person buying such a TV saves on electricity bills.

Advantages

  • Built-in three TV tuners;

  • All digital TV standards are supported;

  • There are four HDMI connectors and three USB ports;

  • Headphone output is not forgotten;

  • There is a light sensor;

  • Very good color rendering;

  • Smart TV available;

  • Screen refresh rate increased to 100 Hz

disadvantages

  • The simplest acoustics;

  • Low bandwidth Wi-Fi;

  • The viewing angles cannot be called maximum;

  • Very high cost.

Samsung UE50MU6100U

Rating: 4.6

Samsung UE50MU6100U

One of the most inexpensive 50-inch TVs. For this device they ask only 50 thousand rubles, and in some stores it can be purchased even cheaper. It is clear that for that kind of money you should not expect maximum image quality, just as you should not rely on a smart speaker system. Nevertheless, the Samsung UE50MU6100U still has something to boast, otherwise it would not have gotten a place in our rating. For example, the screen refresh rate here is 100 Hz. And this is one of the few TVs with such a parameter in this price segment. Also, the device copes without problems with launching applications designed for Tizen – a powerful processor and a large amount of RAM ensure that there are no brakes. The creators should also be praised for a fairly convenient remote control that supports not only push-button, but also voice control.

It is worth talking about the negative aspects of this model. Firstly, the product consumes approximately 195 W – regular viewing of the 'box' will definitely be reflected in your electricity bills. Secondly, the low bandwidth of the wireless module is slightly upsetting, which can cause problems with viewing 4K content over the network. The third disadvantage is the speaker system, consisting of two speakers with a total power of 20 watts.

Advantages

  • Smart TV is present;

  • Available Bluetooth;

  • Optimal set of connectors;

  • Built-in two independent TV tuners;

  • All digital TV standards are supported;

  • Low cost for this size;

  • Sweep frequency increased to 100 Hz;

  • There is a light sensor.

disadvantages

  • There is no headphone jack;

  • Standard speaker system;

  • Built-in Wi-Fi 802.11n;

  • High power consumption.

Best 4K TVs from 65 ''

Samsung QE65Q7FAM

Rating: 4.9

Samsung QE65Q7FAM

One of the best QLED TVs available in Russian stores. They ask for about 200 thousand rubles for the device, but this is quite an adequate amount for a TV with a 65-inch screen. Think about it, the diagonal reaches 165 cm! Not every person in our country has a living room with sufficient space to watch such a monster. It is also one of the few devices in this rating that is equipped with three TV tuners. This allows you to connect two satellite dishes, in addition to watching terrestrial television. It should be noted that the refresh rate increased to 100 Hz. Not every TV with such large physical dimensions can boast of such a parameter.

Perhaps, it is difficult to make any claims to this model. Here and the speaker system is capable of boasting a powerful sound, and the number of connectors will suit absolutely any customer, and the operating system Tizen works without any slowdowns. But we understand that perfect TVs do not exist? It's just that the shortcomings here seem completely far-fetched. Someone in the reviews complains about flimsy. This person was expecting to receive a TV with a very thick glass, because of what the device would weigh all 50 kg? There are also complaints about the kit, where there are no bolts for mounting on the wall. However, this is typical for any modern TV. And only the high price is a rightly mentioned disadvantage.

Advantages

  • Extra large and colorful QLED display

  • A large number of connectors;

  • The screen refresh rate is 100 Hz;

  • Great speaker system;

  • Smart TV is present;

  • There are three TV tuners;

  • Support for all digital TV standards has been implemented;

  • Light sensor is not forgotten;

  • Nice design.

disadvantages

  • Astronomical cost.

LG 65UJ634V

Rating: 4.7

LG 65UJ634V

One of the most affordable 64-inch TVs. But it got into our rating not only because of the cost, which varies from 65 to 85 thousand rubles. We really appreciate the image quality of the 4K IPS display. The buyer can count on the maximum viewing angles and the inclusion of the HDR effect when viewing the relevant content. The video can be taken from both external electronic equipment and the global web. In the second case, webOS will be used – an operating system adapted by the company LG for use on TVs. The connection to the router can be carried out via the Wi-Fi 802.11ac standard, so the buyer will definitely not complain about the lack of bandwidth.

Otherwise, this is a regular LCD TV, lacking stars from the sky. It uses a standard screen refresh rate, and the acoustics can boast of nothing special either. Well, two TV tuners are the standard for this price segment. Also, not all buyers have stable applications for viewing video content. In short, we would recommend either buying a smaller TV for the same money, or paying extra for a more advanced model. LG 65UJ634V is worth paying attention to if you are 100% ready to accept its shortcomings.

Advantages

  • Excellent IPS display with maximum viewing angles;

  • Smart TV is present;

  • There are two TV tuners;

  • All digital TV standards are supported;

  • Three HDMI sockets and two USB ports;

  • Built-in Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth;

  • There is a light sensor.

disadvantages

  • The sweep frequency is only 60 Hz;

  • A standard speaker system is used;

  • Insufficient RAM;

  • There is no Magic Remote included.

Samsung UE75MU7000U

Rating: 4.6

Samsung UE75MU7000U

The most expensive TV in our rating, for which in Russian stores they ask about 240 thousand rubles. For this money, the buyer gets a device with a screen diagonal of 75 inches (191 cm). Such a TV will need a huge room! In particular, he will find a place somewhere in a bar or restaurant. The screen makes only positive impressions here. It has 4K resolution and HDR support. What's more, the South Koreans have been able to raise the scan rate to 200Hz, making the action scenes in movies and games look as smooth as possible.

It is difficult to make a complaint about this TV. The manufacturer tried to give it maximum performance. In particular, he built an excellent speaker system here, the total power of which reaches 40 watts. He also endowed the TV with a large number of connectors and high-speed wireless modules. Like the icing on the cake – three independent TV tuners.

Advantages

  • A large number of downward-facing speakers are built in;

  • Huge 4K display with HDR support

  • Smart TV available;

  • Sweep frequency increased to 200 Hz;

  • Built-in three TV tuners;

  • There are four HDMI sockets and three USB ports;

  • All digital TV standards are supported;

  • There is a light sensor and voice control.

disadvantages

  • Very high cost;

  • Weight reaches 37.2 kg;

  • The power consumption is 325 watts.

Conclusion

Any of the 4K TVs reviewed in this article will certainly delight you. And there is no need to think that such permission is only the future. No, this is already real, because even relatively inexpensive action cameras can shoot such high-quality video. And, as mentioned above, powerful computers and modern game consoles also give such a picture. And that's not to mention the fact that 4K videos can be easily found on the Internet!
