Just like the 65-inch model (more on that in a bit), the 50-inch Vizio D-Series is one of the most well-equipped 4K TVs on the market, coming with a Google Chromecast Ultra baked in under the hood for one-click access to all of the leading streaming services, including but not limited to, Amazon Prime Video, HBO Go, and Netflix.
It also ships with the company’s Spatial Scaling Engine. Don’t let the branding fool you, though — it’s no different to the UHD Engine rival Samsung bundles on its 4K TVs, taking standard HD and Full HD material and transforming it into 4K Ultra HD. And for those looking for the most immersive visuals, there’s multi-format HDR.
Curved 4K TVs deliver an unrivaled viewing angle that ensures everyone in the room is immersed in the on-screen action, irrespective of whether they’re sitting right in from of the screen or not — so if you have a large family or are no stranger to hosting a shindig, the 55-inch Samsung on offer could be a much-loved addition to your setup.
Arced screen aside, there isn’t a whole lot of difference between the 50-inch Vizio D-Series and the 55-inch Samsung NU7300, the main being it hasn’t been loaded with a Chromecast. However, it does have Samsung’s fantastic Tizen OS on board, which is home to all of the same top-tier streaming services. The rest is much the same.
The best deal we uncovered, the 65-inch Vizio D-Series is a must-have at $450. It’s large enough to be the star of the show, even for folk on the other side of the room; has a Chromecast for tapping into on-demand content from the likes of Amazon Prime Video and Netflix, and comes with the firm’s Spatial Scaling Engine and HDR to boot.
What’s more, the 65-inch D-Series (and the aforementioned 50-inch model) comes bundled with Google Assistant out of the box, eliminating the need to scroll through an endless catalog of content to find a show you want to watch. Just say what show, genre, or even what service you want to watch, and Assistant will handle the rest.
The 75-inch TCL 5-series is one of the most well-rounded 4K TVs you can buy. Why? Because it comes with Roku OS, a feature that’s worshipped by both aspiring and seasoned cord-cutters alike, due to its ability to tap into a near-endless catalog of both live and on-demand content from the largest selection of sources in the world.
Pair that with a 4K screen, voice control, and multi-format HDR and you have a recipe for success.
Heart set on a TV that’s a tad out of your budget? All of the retailers we’ve featured have a financing scheme in place that let you split the cost over 12 months, with some marginal interest and sales tax thrown in. But that’s not the best bit — that would be the fact all of the televisions we’ve featured come in at a less than $100 per month.
Here’s a breakdown of how financing works out for the above models:
- — $28/month
- — $55/month
- — $45/month
- — $78/month
