Default Could use your input on a new 43" 4K TV

As the title says, I'm looking for the best bang for the buck 43" 4K TV. I've had Vizios and had a lot of freezing/wifi issues with apps, so I'd prefer not to get another Vizio. I've been pleasantly surprised reading the reviews of TCL brand TVs but was also looking at Samsung and LG as brands (although LG seems to be less than favorable in reviews). Since I already have a Roku and an Apple TV, the builyt in Roku on the TCL is not necessarily a winning feature (unless it's more 4K content than my external one). I'd want one with at least a 120mhz refresh rate but since is my first 4k, I do have questions.

Do I really need a specific type of hdmi cables? Some reviews say yes, some make it sound like a scam.

Will the TV upgrade existing non-4K sources to "near 4K" quality? Again, descriptions paint different pictures on this.

Which sets have the best/most robust app stores (TCL being Roku is a plus since there seem to be hundreds of them there)?

ANY opinions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

You do need a cable capable of high enough speeds to handle 4K HDR - you do not need to buy expensive ones though, those are a con.

All 4K TVs must upscale to 2160p to display, how good this is depends entirely on the quality of the chipset.

For 43" size range you can get great high quality TVs. Set your budget then buy the best one you afford.

TV displays everything in 4K but it is only as good as the source material.

As for the apps, no idea.

Go with the 43' TCL 5 series and you'll be good to go.
