We Unveil The Best 50 Inch TVs of June, 2019 – Ultra High Definition TV Sets

Perfect Sized TVs for Lounges, Bedrooms and Kitchens

Televisions are amazing devices that take us away from our existing world and into other exciting environments in a very realistic manner. They come in several sizes to cater for various family sizes and also feature different resolutions.

As people want bigger and bigger televisions, the major players in this market have produced TVs of 50 inches and upwards. Fortunately the prices haven’t risen in line with this increase in screen size, however manufacturers wanting to keep ahead of the game, have vastly improved on quality.  Generally, visuals and audios are better than they were a year ago, and with technology improving all the time, this is set to carry on rising.

An increasing number of TVs now come with smart technology built-in, allowing access to streaming services such as Netflix and the internet. Many have voice controls, interactive features and the ability to sync to other smart devices in your home. So it makes sense to look for 50 inch smart TVs, instead of just considering the ‘dumber’ versions.

3. TCL Smart Roku TV


Overview

Our next television is the TCL LED Roku smart TV, another great product with a good reputation to live up to. This is a nicely balanced model, and a lot of thought has gone into producing an elegant screen. The ultra fine bezels match the thin legged, but decepitvely stable, stand, and the ability to hide any cables just adds to the supremely sleek appearance. So far, so good.

Connectivity is also adequately provided for, with this television offering multiple inputs including a USB port, three HDMI ports, Ethernet ports, and even headphone jacks.

The visuals are what you’d expect from TCL – clean, smooth scrolling, with great contrasts. The tonal quality and resolution benefit from the directly lit LEDs, while the superb audio offers an all round experience.

With the aid of an innovative mobile app, we were able to transform our smartphone or tablet into a full-function Roku remote. This is a brilliant idea – take note, Toshiba, Sony et al.

What Needs Improving

Like other Roku models, there are adverts on the home screen, but they don’t interfere with your viewing pleasure.

Overview

Many of us know the Samsung brand for their production of fantastic mobile devices, but they are equally renowned for designing high quality television sets. This 4K Smart LED TV retains their reputation for style. It’s one of the thinest models on the market, and if hung, lies completely flat to the wall.

What We Like

We love the Sceptre Komodo for its slim, sleek lines,helping it blend seamlessly into its surroundings.
