Below Are The Best 4K TVs


The days of analog and standard definition are far, far gone.  Thank God we are past this type of technology, if you want to call it that.  Today, we now have 4K Ultra High Definition (4K UHD) televisions available for sale.  

You were given 5 easy steps on how to purchase your first 4K TV under “Recommended Setups”.  Now, we want to provide you actual 4K TV setup recommendations.

As explained in past Posts, after years of research and comparison we elected to affiliate ourselves with Amazon.  

The reasons are simple: 

 (1)  They offer the largest, greatest selection of 4K TVs and 4K Blu-ray players.  

(2)  They offer the lowest prices available on the market and the best 4K TVs.

Let Us Begin

*Note:  We are fully aware that technology changes basically every month.  Our job at 4KADVICE.COM is to keep up with these changes and present them to you.  With that said, the recommendations presented below will be updated as often as necessary to reflect newer models, newer versions, and newer prices.

We are going to break down our 4K UHD TV recommendations by size category.  This will be less confusing to you as a consumer.  Simply scroll down to the size of TV that you have decided on.  Or, compare prices to different size categories.  

For example, the price increase to go from a 40 inch TV to a 55 inch TV might be justified in your mind.  This is the type of information that we provide to you so that you make informed decisions.

Four Best 4K TVs –  Display Size Categories:

32 Inches & Under

There are NOT any 4K UHD Televisions produced under 40 inches.  This is because of the 4K Ultra High Definition technology that allows the manufacturers to squeeze four pixels into the size of ONE 1080HD pixel.  For this to be able to happen, the designers needed a minimum display size of 40 inches or higher.

However, you can find PC monitors that are 4K UHD in sizes under 32 inches.  For, purposes of 4K televisions this just is not the case.

You would not want your 4K UHD TV to be smaler than 40 inches anyway.  The larger for 4K, the better picture image.

  1. Hey Matt. I like what I read man. UHDTV. It sounds unreal. I remember a few years ago how poeple were amazed at HDTV and around that time I read an article about the begining of UHDTV in Japan. Peopple were getting nauseous just by looking at the picture, how real it looked.
    I am guessin that is not an issue nowadays. Do you know?

    1. Author

      Good question, but it’s no issue these days. Not sure if they adjusted the refresh rates or what but I have never heard about any complaints like this with 4k UHD in today’s market. That story in Japan might have related to 3D perhaps?

      4K is just amazing. I never thought anything could ever be better than 1080HD when it came out like you said. That was incredible during that time to switch from SD to 1080hd.

      But, it’s really true. Native 4k content on a 4k tv today is four times better picture quality than 1080hd. As long as the movie was mastered or filmed in 4k using 4k cameras then you’ll get the absolute best image on you 4k uhd TV. It’s mind blowing how real it is. Makes you feel like you are right there on the scene love.

      Please share our POSTS and Pages on FB with friends and family and come back to 4KADVICE.COM to learn more and make your purchases via our AMAZON BLOCK ADS. Please click on our Amazon banners if you ever need to do normal shopping at Amazon.

      I am happy to do the same for you and your site if u Pass me your address.

  2. I’ve been looking for 4K tvs and I’m glad I came across this list. I’ve heard they have the best pictures and I didn’t know there were so many options.

    Which would you recommend for an xbox? I’m picking one up for Christmas and want a nice tv to play it on.

    Thanks for the post!

      Oh yeah, good idea! Are you getting the Xbox one S, I think it’s called? It’s xbox especially first real 4k console. Has built in 4k BLURAY player which is different from Blu-ray. A real 4k native BLURAY player and disc movie on a 4k tv will totally blow your mind. This contains the best picture image possible. So real it’s like you are there. Thanks for asking.


      What size u looking for? I’d go as big as possible like 60 or 65inch. I have a 65 inch 4k 3d SONY TV with built in play station. All 4k content is absolutely amazing to watch. But I mostly play xbox one on it. Battlefield graphics are super, crisp and the best I’ve seen ever. Even though I don’t have the new Xbox one S 4k. I want it though.

      Also, remember that most 4k tvs, all Sony do UP CONVERTING OR UPSCALING. This means it automatically up scales or enhances any HD image to somewhere between HD and 4k. It.cant go to full 4k or 3,820 but maybe 2,500 . Basically it will upscale any image including games to about 2-3 times BETTER picture quality and sharpness than 1080hd. To upscale, the original image must be at least 720 or 1080hd…its awesome. Then, if you stream native 4k content which means the film or game was actually mastered or.filmed using 4k cameras as opposed to 2k cameras which is the norm today….is REALLY when you will see the capability of your new 4k tv. It won’t disappoint and yes it is SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER than 108phd if u can believe that.

      Please, please return to my site and click on my Amazon ad block banners (any of them) and then shop like normal at Amazon to make.purchases. this would help me most and I happy to return the favor.if u give me your Web address I will click your ads.

  3. hey Matty,

    Great post. The rate technology is moving blows my mind. Wow UHDTV’s! Thats crazy. I love a big tv. Hard to believe years ago a 30 inch was considered enormous in the home.

    I love your review and I’m going to study all of them to learn more about them. I see they don’t come under 40 inches. Again that is crazy.

    Thanks for a great post and food for thought,

      You are welcome, glad to help with the information. Yes, 4K is amazing and who would have ever though that TV would get much better images than 1080HD when that first came out. But, it certainly has and 4K is about 4 times better viewing experience than 1080HD. It was worth it to me to get such a real looking image that makes you feel like you are right there on the scene live. You can get monitors under 40 inche and then stream 4K content through that if you wanted to test out the 4K market and pay less than you would for a 50 inch 4K TV. Just an idea. Thanks for commenting.-Matt B.

    2. Do you have a 4K Ultra HD TV yet? If so, how do you like it? If not, do you plan to upgrade to a 4K TV? Thanks, Matt

  4. I want a 4k tv badly! thanks for this website, I have learned most of what I need to know to buy 4k. amazon does look to be the best place after researching many others. thanks 4kadvice!

  5. Great buyers guide. I was looking around for reviews and found your site. Great information that will make it a lot easier. I like how all my options are laid out for me.

    Is higher (240) refresh rate or lower (60) the best?

    1. Great quesstion…the higher refresh rate the better. So 240 is best, no lag and faster response times duringnaction scenes, etc. Thanks for visiting our site regarding 4k TVs and UHD and HIDE.
