Our Top Pick
TCL is one of the largest makers of TVs in the world and has started to make big inroads into the US market, and for good reason. They offer some great TVs in the lower budget ranges.
This 40 in model has Roku TV built into it, letting you access over 4,000 channels of streaming content with more than 450,000 TV episodes and movies from services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, HBO Now, YouTube, and others.
The 1080p/Full HD resolution looks great at this size unless you plan on sitting within 4 feet.
You can pause live TV up to 90 minutes by plugging a USB drive into the back (Up to 16GB - Larger won't store more video).
The direct-lit LED provides great colors and contrast and the 60Hz refresh rate minimizes blurring in fast action scenes and while gaming.
3 HDMI(1 w / ARC), 1 USB, RF, Composite, Headphone Jack, Optical Audio Out will be enough to accommodate nearly any living room or bedroom setup with a video game console, DVD player, and TiVo, Chromecast or some other 3rd party video streaming device.
Built -in WiFi for the built-in Roku TV and for updating the TV’s software is handy and eliminates the need for buying a separate WiFi USB attachment.
At a price of under $200, this is a great buy.
