    Impressive and affordable 4K TV fire TV edition

    We’ve had this TV for 3 weeks already and it has been positioned as our main TV replacing our aging Sony HD 42’ flat screen TV in the living room. This is our first time owning a Toshiba and my whole family has been satisfied enjoying 4K and HD content. Initial Setup: initial setup was a breeze, except for the fact that it needed your Amazon account in order to get Apps installed (I am not really fond of having Amazon snooping on what we consume). I also have a Roku 4K that I bought from BestBuy, so I was not initially much comfortable adding my Amazon account, but I decided to configure it with my Amazon Prime account to try some of the Apps. Setup was easy, I had the TV running after a few minutes (after upgrades). Initial home screen reminds me a little of the Xbox One home screen, but well, this one has access to the different HDMI ports and settings for display and audio. I also added PIN protection to disable buying content automatically. YouTube, Netflix and other Apps installed just fine. Roku 4k seems like a redundant device, but I decided to have it connected permanently, mainly because we have gotten used to it on the other TVs. Display (settings): I was not really bought into the 4K frenzy. Yes going to BestBuy and Costco, one could tell that 4K seemed more enjoyable; however, a few feet behind, HD and 4K wouldn’t be that different I would say, but I was wrong, 4K is just awesome. Colors are vibrant (well other TVs may be comparable provided settings are adjusted accordingly) and out of the box, I only had to do minor adjustments (e.g. decrease brightness for the Cable TV HDMI connection). Interestingly, the display settings are per HDMI port. One HDMI port for Cable TV, other for Xbox One, and the last one for Roku 4K, and each one has its own (slightly different) settings. There is a vast series of parameters to configure which I assume can satisfy the most demanding videophiles. Also, there is automatic preconfigured settings that can be used if you don’t want to spend much time paying with the settings. We have content in SD, HD and 4K. 4K no doubt brings the best, HD doesn’t disappoint, but SD is just not very enjoyable, it might be also because of the size of the screen, at 50” the coarse “pixels” are clearly noticeable and some odd colors may result as well (I would have expected for the TV to make some adjustments to the quality but I think it doesn’t, I might be wrong). For example, watching the Soccer World Cup in SD was not vey enjoyable, one game in which the goalkeeper had a yellow outfit when focused closely, suddenly it turned orange from the distance with a halo yellowish effect. Other SD content was more enjoyable though. I would recommend this TV for HD and 4K content consumption. Audio: I was having issues connecting my 5.1 Sony audio system with the TV, so I decided to just give it a try to the built-in speakers, this one is really 5 points, sound is excellent (at least when compared to other devices with Audio that we have at home), it is so good that it feels like we don’t need our Audio system to be hooked up (well we will have the Audio system hooked up :) at some point). I am planning on setting up my Sony receiver with this TV (this will eat one of the HDMI ports leaving only two if I want a direct connection to the TV, though). Connectivity: glad there is still at least one old composite Audio/video port available, so I can use my classic PS2 console to play some old school games. I am disappointed that there are only 3 HDMI ports! My old Sony has 5, plus other old school connections. Software: So far, the fire TV edition hasn’t disappointed, navigation and the like feels easy enough. Besides easy access to all Amazon content, Alexa is being sold as one of the prominent features. We don’t like digital assistants, or for that matter, a disruptive agent that learns what we do and the like, so we haven’t used Alexa at all. I assume we could be happier telling orders to it, but I don’t mind using the remote(s) to access what I want. If at some point the “espionage” level of Alexa and Amazon levels down, then I might consider it. Lastly on this matter, to be fair, the software feels well crafted, so a compliment to Amazon. Others: - Remote control felt very over simplified at first and I suspected it was that way to entice people to interact with Alexa. We don’t use Alexa, and so far we’ve had no real issues with the remote control except for having to type the PIN whenever we are making some configuration change or accessing the Apps. - I got the feeling that this TV was too heavy and it seemed to be thicker to other similar devices (other brands such as Vizio). I needed help to place it on top our TV stand. I shouldn’t complain though, at least the construction of this device feels solid when compared to others. - Finally, this is our first 4K TV and we may be biased to give it a 5 start rating, but given the range of settings for Video for this TV, I can tell one can definitely configure it to be at par with other more high end 4K TVs, so a 5 is well deserved.

    VERY Nice 4K HDR TV at a Great Price!

    Now this may sound stupid, because it probably is, but I already had a nice 4K TV that was less than 2 years old but didn't have HDR. It was beautiful and did a great job as my 'man cave' TV for movies and Xbox gaming. Since I purchased that TV I have upgraded my Xbox to the One X with HDR and I have a new 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray player so I have been itching to see how much of a difference the HDR thing really makes. I can now definitively say that, to me, the upgrade to HDR is worth it. It is especially worth it when you can get this in a $400 TV! I used to own a lot of Toshiba stuff back in the day but for some reason they seemed to never be on my short list for the longest time. I know the TV market has gotten saturated with a lot of new players and perhaps they just weren't getting the shelf space that they used to. Well, this price point and these features should definitely put it on the map for you if you had kind of forgotten about them like I had. I have run several 4K Ultra HD movies through this TV and they look stunning though to tell you the truth these I had a hard time actually seeing the HDR effect even with both TVs side by side. Perhaps it is my selection of movies/TV shows (lots of sci-fi) but if that was all it was I would have been pretty disappointed. Looked awesome, but not worth getting a new TV over. Now when I started playing some of my Xbox One games that have been optimized for 4K and HDR, THEN I could tell the difference. Perhaps it is because a movie or a TV show is short compared with the time spent in a game. Some of these games I have been playing for an unfortunate number of hours and I know them extremely well so the differences really popped. Areas that previously had been a tad dark and almost muddy now had detail in them. Colors seem more 'correct' or perhaps more lifelike. Also, in some games I would have to boost the brightness to even really play it (or play in the dark) to get enough contrast (and this was on a really high-rated big name 4K TV). Now the plain Game mode is just perfect because and I don't have to wash out the colors with increased brightness. BTW, that had nothing to do with the 'realness' of the colors, that is actually most pronounced in well-lit parts of the game. The Amazon Fire being built in is nice, though my other TV also had a great selection of apps as well (to include Prime Video). I don't have much use for Alexa, so that is neither a positive or a negative for me. The homepage feature when you turn on the TV is also helpful but if you don't agree you can turn that feature off. So what are the drawbacks that are obviously there for a $400 4K HDR TV. The big one is that it is big, or actually it is thick. While the 50' only weighs a little over 40lbs, I'n not sure this would look as great hanging on a wall as some other TVs. Fortunately I have a TV stand for this anyway that holds all the players and the TV and leaves wall space for movie posters and an 'I Love Me' wall. This is not a sleek bezel-less design that 'disappears' while viewing. It is a lot of plastic and more plastic. Toshiba put the money into this for the screen and I'm happy with that. Again, perhaps not your show TV that you have for all to see but for a game room or bedroom TV, this is a winner. If you have been waiting for a good TV at a great price with HDR support, you won't be disappointed in the picture that the Toshiba Fire TV Edition gives you. If you have been waiting even for a 4K upgrade, then this is a no-brainer and is an awesome TV at a great price.

    Outstanding 50in 4k TV with Alexa functionality

    Since the TV market has been in the hands of a couple of big brands, it is nice to see Toshiba back in this market with this model that offers features that compete at the same level and offers great video quality as well as sound. Unpackaging was straight forward. It took me 15 min. The box comes with the tv, 2 printed Quick start guide in English and Spanish, Fire tv remote, 2 detachable legs, 2 AAA batteries and a power cable. Initial setup was smooth, once you turn on the tv it starts to look for network connectivity. I have it connected wired so it automatically started to look for firmware updates and once the update is finished, an interactive tutorial took place. You can also have wireless connectivity. I highly recommend to follow the tutorial, it is not long and you will learn the basics of the tv. Now, the first thing that is noticeable is the resolution and colors. The video quality is outstanding, it really is a 4k HDR. I have 2 other tv’s, 4 years old and a tv that is one year old. The last one is a 4k, but with the Toshiba, blacks are black. Every single color is brilliant and the little details of the picture is amazingly clear, not saturated or white. Without changing the factory default it has an amazing picture, video resolution, it is a true 4k Ultra HDR picture quality that gives a superior TV experience, I will say more vivid or lifelike. Even the Antenna local channels program looks great on this TV! I have a Sony Blu ray 4k player, and I couldn’t have enjoyed more watching Thor Ragnarok, not to mention the Sound, which was clear, and loud, only using the internal built in ONKYO speakers. Let’s talk about the functionality, for what I need, it has everything you need to connect the TV to any device available in the market. Starting by the Coax Cable jack in, which I use a lot, I have an exterior antenna to watch the air digital channels, through the tv settings, you can start the Search for digital channels. There is also a Lan Port for wired connectivity, RCA AV in, Stereo Jack audio out, Digital Optical Output, 3 HDMI ports, one of this is an ARC port, and one USB port. Through the USB you can view pictures stored in a USB drive, or Use it as additional storage for the TV which I found very useful. The ARC Port is a feature I loved. I have a Soundbar that I connected to this TV. The ARC feature doesn’t come enable by default, so in order to enable this feature you will have to turn on HDMI-CEC In order for them to turn on HDMI-CEC they need to do the following Go into Settings/Display & sounds/ HDMI-CEC Device control and switch it to ON. Now, I decide to add the Soundbar at the very end, just for testing purposes, because I have to say that the Built in TV speakers are great! I was really surprised about the performance and the power of the sound, and reading the specs I found out why. This TV comes with Onkyo Speakers. I you don’t care about having 5.1 sound, the Toshiba built in TV speakers will please you for sure. This is something that you will not find on any of the other popular brands. The TV is sturdy, but not bulky, which make me feel confident and reliable because it doesn’t feel flimsy or weak comparing to the others TV in the market.The remote is pretty simple, few keys, but well designed, you can do everything you need with the way the keys are distributed. And I also noticed, that if you have just a little experience with previous TVs, you can easily learn how to operate this one, it is completely intuitive. Now, during the initial setup you add or create a Amazon Account, you can enjoy all the benefits of having Alexa with the mic located in the remote. You can change the HDMI port, ask for a specific, video, or app or anything, through voice command, and it will do it. Because it has the ability to connect with Alexa, it be connected via Amazon Echo. The remote includes 4 buttons that are preset to Prime Video, HBO, Netflix and Playstation Vue. You can also assign names to the HDMI inputs so you can say “Alexa switch to HDMI1” or “switch to WII.” Can be paired with an echo device so you don’t even need to use the remote voice button and can go hands free with your TV experience. Having Amazon Fire TV built into the TV in combination with Alexa makes a huge step up into the TV technology nowadays. By far, this Toshiba TV is impressive! For just $400 you can have a 50in TV with all these features and great video and sound quality, as well as the Alexa functionality, it is a great choice for someone who is looking for all these features at an affordable price. I would highly recommend this budget-friendly and great quality 4K TV.

    Great 4K LED TV

    Posted

    After my last experience with an under-$500 LED TV (a Samsung), I was dubious that I’d find a worthwhile LED TV within this price range. Therefore I was surprised that Toshiba was able to produce a cost conscious LED TV while maintaining fundamental features, such as a great picture and sound. Setup The setup was pretty straight forward. I decided to use a wall mount instead of the legs and I had no problem installing it. The TV sticks out about 5 inches from the wall, which is about the same depth as the soundbar. The initial programming gave step-by-step instructions and choices, which were easily understood. After the setup was complete, I was watching a show, and the TV randomly locked out the screen, requesting I kept the remote within a close distance while it updated (this took about 3 minutes). I’m hoping this isn’t a frequent occurrence. Picture Even though I believe the picture quality is better than most of the TVs within this price range, I felt it was not as good as other 4K competitors. I can’t really fault Toshiba for this since they are about half the price. Sound I am not a fan of internal speakers, but the quality and volume of sound this TV produces is amazing. I was very impressed with how clear the voices were and how loud the speakers were. Pros Rapid startup Good, clear picture Little motion blur Well-balanced speakers Cons Remote randomly updated and blocked picture for about 3 minutes after setup was complete Thicker frame than competitors I would readily recommend this TV to anyone who has a budget of less than $500 and doesn’t want to sacrifice important features. I believe this is one of the best TVs within its class and price point.

    Nice Tv

    This TV is replacing a Vizio 48” 3D as our secondary TV. My husband unpacked it and was able to pull it out of the box by convenient cutouts on the wrapping plastic. We ordered an outdoor OTA to pickup “live TV. Since it is a smart TV, we easily connected WiFi and since we are in a very rural area, we connected to Dish satellite TV. Unfortunately, none of these connections as we have them set up will offer 4K programming so I can’t speak to that important aspect yet. Our satellite internet provider restricts us to 420p and we have ordered a 4K joey from Dish and a 4K DVD player to acess the 4K services. However, All of the setup was very easy. There was a quick start sheet included but on line no true detailed guide that I could find. That being said, the on screen setup was VERY simple. The tv easily connected to my WiFi and once I entered my password everything began downloading with minimal input from me. If you want full benefit from online content, you will need to have an Amazon account. I already had one so just entered my password. There are many things I like about this tv, but there are many things to learn. I have always used custom color display setups. This tv adjusts colors based on each type input. Our dish is connected to hdmi 1. I can chose several precalculated color setting on hdmi1 or customize them to my taste for the Dish. Same is true for the antenna. That enables us to make the colors true to life based on the input we are using. Very nice featuresince all transmissions are not the same quality. The sound from the TV speaker seems to be pretty good. We generally use external speakers from a surround system, but haven’t set that up as yet. Another feature I enjoy is watching OTA (this TV calls it “live tv”). Nowadays, we can get a channel guide showing “upcoming” programming for OTA channels. Nice. Being “old school”, some of the many features are a bit confusing. I do miss seeing channel numbers and there are no numbers on the included remote. With our internet being satellite, we have to monitor our data usage. 150gigs per month. Streaming indiscriminately is not possible, and streaming is only allowed at 420p, anything over that is buffered (slooow). One nice feature for us is a data counter. I was able to set when our data replenishes each month, set a limit on how much data we want to use on programming and receive an alert when we reach it. Then there is Alexa. The remote is fairly small with no numerical keypad. To interact with Alexa, you have to hold the microphone button and speak to her. It works very well and she is very responsive. Personally, I prefer to “do it myself” but those who grew up in the tech age will probably enjoy this. One last thing that was a fun surprise. There is a screen saver when the tv is inactive. I looked up and some of my personal photos were scrolling through a slide show. I had forgotten that I had uploaded some pics to Amazon cloud drive last year. That was really cool that Alexa knew that. OR maybe kinda creepy! Lol. This is a cool tv and I can’t wait to see 4K programming. Try it, if you have good internet this is a game changer!

    For background: I've watched a 40" plasma set from 2011 for many many years now and have been plenty pleased with it. Back in the day, LCD sets were not the greatest when it came to blacks and I've just felt no need to replace the plasma set for that and other reasons. So when the opportunity to check out this Toshiba came along I figured "Why not?" Let's see what the new guys can do compared to the old boys. 1st of all, the picture...the reason we watch TV. Let there be no doubt...blacks are black.Colors are pleasing, not overly saturated or unnatural looking. Mind you, my viewing is done with all settings are at factory defaults. +1 Size, weight, ability to use my existing TV stand: Ok, somewhat subjective but this was as simple as unplugging the sound bar, electric & HDMI cables, swapping out the sets, and reconnecting. I like simple! +1 Channel assortment: I'm a long-time ROKU user so was interested in checking out Fire TV. Still early on but it's ok. Plenty of channels - I'm an Amazon Prime user and the selection of available choices is much greater than for non-members [that's the "hook"]. The usual assortment of channels is available to include Internet radio. Ease of navigation could be refined as tad, though. +1 On-air TV channels: I know, who watches OTA TV anymore? Well, having an old amplified TV antenna stashed away, I was happily surprised at the tuner in the set. Even with the antenna in a poor location and not aimed with any precision, I was blown away at the channels pulled in. Well done! +1 I tinkered with Alexa and did not find it useful. Others might find it helpful, not me, it won't be missed. And I'm sure not installing a listening device in my home. Not going to happen, Jeff! +0 Lone negative experience: for whatever reason [software update?] the set worked great with my wireless network the first day/night and has not been able to connect since. Tried changing protocols, passwords, rebooting the set to factory defaults, restarting the router [Uverse]...nada, zip, zilch...it fails to connect. Every. Time. I suspect a firmware/software update that first night/early morning of the next day as prior updates had been made with no ill effects. So yeah, have to use a cable. -1 By my completely arbitrary scoring method, the set crosses the finish line at +3. My old plasma gets donated this weekend. Job well done, Toshiba and BB!

    I wanted to put a TV in a guest bedroom without paying for an additional cable hookup, and the Toshiba Smart – 4K UHD TV with HDR – Fire TV Edition was the right way to go. Before I moved the TV to its permanent home, I hooked it up to a cable outlet and Blu-ray player and tried it out. No matter what input I used – Wi-Fi, Blu-ray, or cable – this TV delivered excellent reception, a high quality picture, good sound, and all around good performance. The affordable price makes everything even better. The good experience began with the packaging. The first thing I saw when I opened the box was a diagram for how to remove everything from the box and how to separate the TV from its Styrofoam cocoon. I have kept that diagram in case I ever need to re-box the unit, because I know from experience that what appears obvious when you’re unpacking equipment is often far from obvious when you need to repackage it. The next good experience was how easy it was to attach the feet to the TV and hook up the various wires and cables. There again was a very straightforward diagram that allowed me to do this alone and get everything right the first time in about 5 minutes. The only thing left to do was to strip off the protective plastic film, insert the batteries into the remote, and turn everything on. Set up was a breeze. Onscreen directions walked me through everything, and as soon as I had entered in the Wi-Fi, Amazon, and Netflix passwords and allowed for a software update, I had access to everything. The closest thing I can think of to an inconvenience is for users who usually watch TV using the cable input. When you turn on the TV, it opens to the Fire TV option, not the last viewed input. However, the opening screen does display the Recent, Last Viewed, and On Now content, and you can just click on your desired option. It takes just a second to accomplish this. I couldn’t be happier with the Toshiba Smart – 4K UHD TV with HDR – Fire TV Edition and wouldn’t hesitate to use it as my primary TV. Indeed, whenever my husband or I want to go off and watch TV alone, we go to the guest bedroom and use this TV instead of watching the higher-priced TV in our master bedroom. If (when?) the day comes that we finally cut the cable cord, we will either move this TV into our den or buy another one for that location, because it makes streaming so convenient and simple. A very good experience.

    Amazon Fire with Alexa Makes Smart TVs Smarter

    So far, this TV has been impressive! We watch a lot of shows from streaming services as well as standard cable. Being able to use the Alexa remote to switch between services, inputs, channels, and more makes navigating between all the services convenient. Pros: -TV was packaged well and everything was intact. -Transferred my mounting hardware from old TV to the this tv, uses standard mounting positions. -Setup was easy – connecting to the internet and setting up apps are done through a first-time use setup wizard. I opted for wireless connection and it doesn’t have any problems connecting or streaming. -The 4k screen looks really nice. You can really tell the difference when gaming consoles upscale the resolution from 1080p to 4k -Volume is loud and clear, I’ve yet to test my sound bar with this TV (more on this later). -3 HDMI inputs and can use Alexa voice assistant to switch between inputs instead of button mashing to get where you want. You can also assign names to the HDMI inputs so you can say “switch to cable” or “switch to xbox” instead of whatever HDMI they’re plugged into. -Can be paired with an echo device so you don’t even need to use the remote’s voice button and can go hands free with your TV experience. Cons: -The TV currently boots up to either the home screen or recent screen. I would like it to default to the most recently used HDMI input. -This is nit-picky but I’ve never been a fan of the amazon fire remotes. When I reach across with my thumb the remote shifts in my hand and makes it hard to for me to use, although this is likely just a “me” problem. -This TV is a bit more “glary” than my previous TV. I believe this could just be where I remounted it and I’ve not got the angle correct, or maybe there’s just less dust on the new one. -Smart TV’s can be a bit daunting if you’re a first time user. It’s worth the effort to learn though. Final Thoughts: Having Amazon Fire TV built into the TV in combination with Alexa makes for a really great TV. The evolution of TV’s have been slow beyond resolution, but this is definitely the next step.

Ports are: Lan Port for wired connectivity, RCA AV in, Stereo Jack audio out, Digital Optical Output, 2 HDMI ports, and 1 HDMI ARC port, and one USB port. The USB is just for viewing pictures stored in a USB drive, or as an additional storage for the TV.

    The only reason I bought this tv is because it’s an android platform smart tv and I refuse to give a penny to the mockingbird media or any spirit cooking celebrities. Unlike most smart TVs I can add all my favorite add ons without a firebox. I use kodi for live cable channels some 4K movies (without real debrid) and use Zion tv for 1080 movies and tv shows (fast amazing free) I like how the antenna tv shows up in the amazon tool bar, reminds me of the uverse menu. The picture quality is a little grainy in 1080, not sure the tv does much upscaling and in uhd it’s only impressive when cameras zoomed in on characters. Still looks good for 199.99 43in android tv that does everything i want it to with one remote and 0 hdmi plugs in use. I have access to everything and only pay for a vpn, prime,internet and 100.00 refurbished router. Someone who owns a 3000.00 4K with good upscaling would be disappointed with picture quality but it’s perfect for me.

    It is amazing what you can get for $330 today. I can’t remwmber spending less than $3000 for a top of the line tv over the past 15 years. As our family has expanded so have our needs throughout the house. We have a very nice, large high quality TV in our Great Room which is where we spend most of our viewing time. However, we needed a solution for a kids playroom on the main floor, another solution for the living room space within our bedroom suite to solve for our little ones waking us up at 6am on a Saturday morning and also viewing needs across our entertainment space in our billiards room and bar area in the basement. The cost of adding something like our main great room tv at $3000 a pop plus a cable box at each location made zero sense for us. However, adding 5 of these 50 inch TVs with built in Alexa and an end to end Application platform truly automated and eliminates the need for cable at a price point of $1650 for 5 TVs (half the cost of our one TV in the great room) with no need for Apple TV or any additional add on devices required. Unreal! And the quality of the TV is excellent for what I would call our secondary TV needs for our home. This device at this price point is a no brainer. Awesome find at Best Buy!

    I bought this TV after I returned Roku 49 inch TV. I am a sound person. Once you had great sound you can't go back to Beezy. I like all the Specs for the price 2160 4K HDR Fire inside. I decided to purchase because the sound on the Roku was terrible. My son has a 32 Roku 2015 model and I did not realize how low the Roku platform sound is. The sound on Roku TV are up and down depending on what App your looking at. Netflix may require that sound is on 20 + YouTube the same depending on production amateur or professional. Some commercials are lower or higher from commercial to commercial. I just could not tolerate the sound and did not want to have to depend on my sound bar. So back it went but. Now as for The Toshiba which I was hesitant because the last Toshiba I had kept in mint condition went out after a year and 4 months. Painful but this Toshiba has been pretty decent so far as I said the sound is what I love the most. Picture is OK . 4K quality is nice to on small amount of content. I can find. I have a Roku Ultra hooked up and it gives me some 4K content. Videos were beautiful so if and when their us 4K content on a regular basis you can judge for yourself. Bottom line is a person looking for more than fair technology for cheap this is it.

    Colors that pop

    I bought this TV to replace our aged 40" Sony/Google TV. The setup was a breeze and as soon as we had a picture, I couldn't believe the clarity of the picture. I mean the colors practically POP off the screen. The only downside I can think of is that we still have to use our cable box and remote to watch anything on cable (that's no knock on the television itself). But as of this writing I can skip between cable, antenna (where we only pick up a few stations), Blu-ray player and Kodi video box. And yet we still have Netflix and everything else right at our fingertips (or voice if you prefer to use Alexa as your guide). Now if somebody could only tell me how to get around that cable box..But still, for the price and the picture quality, I would definitely say this TV is a bargain.

    We researched tv's before we stepped in the door. We knew we wanted this tv, our options were limited because our stand this will sit on is only so big and most tv's have the legs way on the ends, this one does not! We are also cord cutters and use Amazon, Netflix and sling. We dropped sling once we got this tv and now use PlayStation vue, I had no idea what it was before seeing the button on the remote, but it's far better than sling. My only gripe isn't about the tv, but with the sales guy at Best Buy who tried to talk us out of this tv because he said while watching sports we would see "blur" if we didn't get a higher model... glad we didn't listen to him, we've watch at least a dozen football games and not one second of "blur" ... super clear, we love it!

    Excellent display and user-friendly

    This is the TV that my mom and I decided on to replace her aging 720p HD Vizio TV. Due to budgetary factors, we needed to choose one under $400. I'll admit that I had some hesitation with an HDR-capable display being priced at such a low amount, but I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, this TV is far from a top-of-the-line UHD display, but it certainly looks far better than what one might expect with a budget TV. As this is an Amazon Fire TV unit, the OS interface is identical to the Prime Video app and the Fire OS line of devices. It is very clean and simple to use. My mom is not the most savvy with such things, and she's been able to operate it with minimal hassles. This is definitely an excellent choice for an entry-level UHD display.

    We purchased this unit to replace a 40" 1080p that we have had for a couple of years. The different between the two is incredible. Blacks are great, picture clarity is phenomenal, and it does well with fast action. Games on our Nintendo switch are beautiful, with sharp graphics, deep blacks, and no artifacts. The Roku feature is convenient, but doesn't work any different than our Roku Premier. The remote is a bit odd, as it is just a Roku remote with a few extra buttons. Would like to have a number pad to direct access channels, but that's not enough for me not to like this TV. Overall very pleased with our purchase.

    I purchased this tv to replace my older 48 inch Sony that wasn’t working properly. I wanted a tv that had a great picture and a few hdmi ports. When I seen all the extras this tv had my choice was made immediately. I hooked up the tv in about 10 min. The tv is awesome. I read some consumers hate the remote, it’s a great remote. I have no complaints and love it. In fact due to the fantastic price I bought another one as a Christmas gift because I know once you use the tv you will love it too! Best part of the tv great sound, great picture. One touch Netflix access, you tube down load. Free sling for a month. If you enjoy relaxing watching the tv welcome to a new level of your watching experience.

    Amazing 4k smart TV

    This TV does it all. 4k movies and games played from the PS4 pro all look incredible. The colors are a little exaggerated in comparison to other TVs, but I personally like it. The sound is great, it doesn't have to be turned up very much to fill a room and music sounds great from Spotify. There are hundreds of apps that can be downloaded to suit your needs and you can easily switch to them with the voice remote. I tried to connect my echos to the tv for more surround sound but the Bluetooth lag is too much. That's my only complaint, but if you really want true surround sound why wouldn't you just buy a receiver and speakers anyway? This is a fantastic 4k tv at, what I consider, an exceptional price.

    I have to say that I was skeptical at this pricepoint that it would blow me away, but in comparison to my 1080p tv, the picture is exponentially better. Sound leaves a little to be desired, especially with bass, but most on board speakers in my experience do. Not a deal breaker. So far worth every penny, love the built in Alexa and remote. No issues with xbox graphics or streaming. I liked it so much, I also got a 43” for my sons room to upgrade his 720p. My only wish is that they made a 65-75” for the living room to replace the vizio which is no longer supported by them so what was once a smart tv has now turned full potato on me.

    I bought this TV two weeks ago for $300.00 at best buy. They had a deal with this TV It list for $400.00 at saving $100.00 dollars off. When you first setup this TV it will take a bit longer for you to download the updates using my version jet pack I was well over my 22 gigabytes. I timed it to be about 5 minutes to get the updates to download. Yes I am on a unlimited data plan with Verizon. The best part about this was that I was able to get my bluetooth LG headset to work with this TV and it will remember whenever you want to turn it off and on again. Best buy was very great for helping me with buying the best TV possible for my family Thanks Xtruckdriver35
