Default Best Budget TV

Im looking at picking up a new 4K tv without breaking the bank. The current TV I have is over 6 years old and watching any action movie has really bad blurring or after image, Im not sure what the term is, but it drives me crazy. So Im sure a budget 4K will be an upgrade. Any suggestions TCL? Element? Toshiba? Something else? Thank you

I always go for Samsung but I hear good things about Hisense and Element but never have I viewed either save for walking down the isle at a television display at a stores. Choosing a budget tv is like choosing a budget bed or a budget chair...some things you just have to splurge for. Maybe get a bestbuy card or some other electronics store and make small interest free payments over an extended period of time, unless you are fine with budget beds.

If I were you, I would save enough money and buy a good quality TV. Buying cheap usually cost you even more because, you'll be replacing TVs more frequently due to poor quality, and you'll end up spending more money, vs buying one good quality TV. Here are some customer reviews about their Element TVs, which are not very good at all. Do your research:

TCL and Vizio are usually the best reviewed brands in the best-bang-for-your-buck category.

Id suggest checking out the TCL 6-Series and the Vizio P-Quantum and Quantum X.

Heres a comparison of a high-end Sony against the TCL 6-Series. He says that for real world content viewing, if I remember correctly, the TCL gets about 95% of the way to the Sony for less than half the price.

What size are you looking for and what's your budget are the 1st two question you have to ask yourself before you go TV shopping.

I just snagged a 55 inch Vizio m series quantum that was open box for $350 and it is really impressive. 4k content and color look amazing for a middle of the road model tv. If you really are looking for budget you need to identify size and how much you're willing to spend. If you really dont have the budget for even the M series quantum Vizio, look at their V series. It's not an eye sore.

I wasn't a believer reading about it, but the more research I did and even though mine doesn't have FALD or DV I've become quite a fan of TCL. I convinced my Pops to buy the newest model last year that did have FALD and DV and though I love mine, his looks fantastic. Great pricing for a great tv. The Roku OS is aces as well.

Without stating the budget, one cannot expect a good answer. Given the ambiguous question, the best budget TV is the best TV you can buy within the budget.
