1) TCL Smart LED Roku TV

Overview

The TCL model has all of TCL’s expertise concentrated into this neatly designed 40 inch smart TV. It’s perfectly formed with slim bezels, and a well crafted V stand. This creates a beautifully stable and very stylish TV that can only add to a modern interior.

What We Like

TCL’s 1080p resolution provides a clear and crisp display. Coupled with smooth motion scrolling, great tonal contrasts, and realistic textural effects, size obviously doesn’t matter! With the audio, too, this diminutive TV packs a punch. The bass resonates nicely, while the top notes flow smoothly, creating an all round treat for eyes and ears. We really like the intuitive interface – it’s simple to navigate and not overly busy.

What Needs Improving

Whilst not a problem, the consumer code could only be activated via phone and not online.

TCL have designed yet another great smart TV. Stunning visuals, impressive audios - this is a no brainer to recommend.

2) Samsung 4K UHD Smart TV

This Samsung smart TV is ultra slim, super stylish and, despite being incredibly lightweight, is very sturdy on the V legged stand. Featuring hidden multi port access, and cable tidy clip, this flat screen would look great placed on a wall, or left free standing.

Motion Rate 120 provides image smoothing, allowing even the fastest chase scenes to be captured and followed in crisp clarity. The full bodied audio system brings the complete cinematic experience into your home.

The smart features, interactive interface and WiFi connectivity are impressively robust, and with Samsung’s unique universal streaming guide eliminating the need to search, we really like this 40 inch smart TV.

3) Samsung Smart HD TV

The beautifully curved stand supports the screen admirably, and echoes the nicely slimline bezels. Sturdy and well made, this model will suit any modern interior, be it bedroom, office or apartment.

What We Like

With enriched colors, and realistic tonal qualities this Samsung TV delivers superbly on visuals. The audio utilizes the excellence that is DTS Premium Sound, providing a rich clarity within an all round 3D experience. The sound and vision adventure aside, we love Samsung’s Eco Sensor. This energy saving technology adapts the screen brightness to the intensity of light within the room, thus saving energy, without losing any image quality.

The Smart Hub allows sharing, streaming and downloading music, movies, games and videos, along with internet connectivity.

What Needs Improving

The home screen includes the usual smart TV adverts, which while annoying, isn’t a deal breaker.
