Thomson T55D23SFS-01S

Rating: 4.7

Thomson T55D23SFS-01S

Usually inexpensive TVs have a wide enough bezel to distract attention. But there are also exceptions to the rule. A striking example of this is the Thomson T55D23SFS-01S with a 55-inch screen, which got into our rating. The bezel around the screen of this TV has a minimum width. Even the legs are very small here. Surprisingly, the product is very stable – the device can only fall during an earthquake.

In Russian stores, they ask for about 34 thousand rubles for a 140-centimeter TV. It is clear that for that kind of money, you will not be offered a monster with a 4K-resolution display. Unfortunately, the buyer will have to put up with the parameter Full HD, which is now gradually becoming obsolete. Also, not everyone will be satisfied with the response time, which reaches 6.5 ms here. However, these were the only significant drawbacks of this model. Otherwise, the TV outperforms many of its competitors. In particular, there is Smart TV, thanks to which you can watch content directly from the Internet. Also, the product can please with the support of all digital TV standards – from terrestrial to satellite. One cannot fail to note a decent number of connectors, which will be enough for most buyers. The creators have not even forgotten about the headphone output, which is gradually disappearing from modern LCD TVs. It is surprising that with such a large size the device consumes only 130 watts of energy – some competitors 'eat' much more.

In short, this is a very good TV for those who are already fed up with wide bezels. The buyer will have to accept only with not the highest resolution by modern standards and a decent response time.

Advantages

  • Nice design;

  • The total power of the speakers reaches 22 W;

  • There is support for all digital TV standards;

  • High-quality screen with maximum viewing angles;

  • Smart TV available;

  • Three HDMI and two USB ports;

  • Connection of headphones is possible;

  • Low power consumption.

disadvantages

  • The weight of the TV reaches 19.8 kg;

  • Only one TV tuner is built in;

  • The response time will not suit everyone;

  • Smart TV works with slowdowns;

Toshiba 55U7750EV

Rating: 4.6

Toshiba 55U7750EV

An excellent 55 '' TV that made it to our rating due to its high number of connectors and thin bezels. It cannot be called especially cheap, the cost of the device is close to 50 thousand rubles. But on the other hand, such a price tag allowed the Japanese not to save. As a result, they decided to install a 4K display here. Individual pixels cannot be distinguished even if you get close to the TV! And this is not an ordinary screen, the sweep frequency is brought up to 100 Hz here! This parameter is well felt when you start watching action films or playing some kind of DOOM. By the way, the response time here reaches 6 ms, which can still interfere with some games.

As befits a TV with this price tag, the Toshiba 55U7750EV has a Smart TV function. In this case, it is based on the operating system Android, which indicates a huge number of applications available. Internet connection is carried out either via Wi-Fi 802.11n, or through a network cable, one end of which must be inserted into the router. Another undoubted advantage of this model is the weight of 13.7 kg – you can hang the TV on the wall without any help.

And yet the device is far from ideal. Unfortunately, the manufacturer skimped by installing only one TV tuner here. Also, not all digital TV standards are supported here – satellite DVB-S2 was left behind. Claims can also be made for acoustics, the total power of which does not exceed 16 W. Nevertheless, the majority of the volume headroom is enough. Moreover, some buyers find the TV even too loud – even at the lowest setting, the device can wake up a sleeping baby.

Advantages

  • Thin bezels;

  • Three HDMI and two USB ports are built in;

  • Not very heavy;

  • Good 4K display

  • Refresh rate increased to 100 Hz;

  • Smart TV is available.

disadvantages

  • Poor sound quality;

  • Only one TV tuner is built in;

  • No support for digital TV satellite standard;

  • Installation of applications is possible only with an inserted USB stick.

LG 55LJ622V

No TV rating can do without products LG. The South Korean company endows its creations with a gorgeous IPS-display, the viewing angles of which are maximum.

Also, the buyer should be pleased with two independent TV tuners and support for all popular digital television standards, including satellite.

The device is also capable of boasting a large number of connectors to which a home theater, game consoles and various peripherals are connected.

Samsung UE55MU6500U

Rating: 4.9

Samsung UE55MU6500U

The South Korean company Samsung is a long-term leader in the number of LCD TVs produced. Both its expensive QLED devices and models such as the UE55MU6500U with a 55-inch screen are in high demand. This device is equipped with a 140 cm screen with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. The sweep frequency is increased to 100 Hz, which is good news. It is because of such a high-quality display, which supports, among other things, HDR, that the cost of a TV outside various sales reaches 65 thousand rubles. People love both the brightness of the Edge LED backlight and the lifelike colors. Some action films and documentaries about nature look great on such a screen.

The content does not have to be watched on television. The operating system Tizen is installed here, so both Internet cinemas and other online services are available to the user. The South Koreans did not skimp on the processor and RAM, so brakes and freezes occur only when using some atypical applications. It should be noted that the product can connect to the router via the Wi-Fi 802.11n standard. Perhaps this is the only serious limitation that may prevent you from watching videos with a sufficiently high bitrate. But on the other hand, there is a wireless module Bluetooth, thanks to which you can connect some other devices. If you need a high-speed wired method, then three HDMI and two USB connectors will come to the rescue. The easiest way to connect your speakers is with the optical audio output. But the headphone jack is missing here, which is a typical picture for South Korean TVs.

The product is equipped with two independent TV tuners. Among the supported digital TV standards, there is also DVB-S2, which allows you to connect a satellite dish to your TV directly, bypassing the receiver.

We can talk about Samsung UE55MU6500U for a very long time. And we didn't mention that the screen of this model is curved!

Sony KD-55XE9005

Already quite an expensive TV. For a Japanese device with a 55-inch screen in our stores they ask for more than 85 thousand rubles. For this money, the buyer will receive an excellent device with a special version installed Android. Traditionally, the Japanese company has paid special attention to the display. It produces a great picture, and even with the HDR effect! The refresh rate has been increased to a fair 100 Hz, which is good for watching action scenes and playing games. Also, one cannot fail to note 4K-resolution, thanks to which the detail in the corresponding videos is amazing.

The TV has a well-thought-out backlighting implemented using Direct LED technology. If in some area it is necessary to display black colors, then in this place the brightness of the backlight decreases. As a result, blacks are very deep, only OLED TVs show themselves better in this regard.

Nothing bad can be said about the television component either. Firstly, the product is endowed with three independent TV tuners at once. Secondly, all digital television standards are supported here – from Russian “multiplexes” to satellite TV. Four HDMI connectors and three USB ports are used to connect external equipment.

In short, this is a wonderful TV. This is the kind of device you usually expect from the Japanese company Sony! It is curious that even the remote control here is made of plastic, pleasant to the touch. Of course, it also supports the input of voice commands, so you won't have to press the buttons too often. It is a pity that the TV is very expensive, most Russians will not be able to afford it.
