Editor's Notes

November 12, 2018:

The price of high-quality 4K televisions has steadily come down over the years, so there are some great offerings by the top brands like Samsung and LG. TCL has some competition from Hitachi, as the latter has included a Roku platform in their 49RH1, but the former still maintains a superior set of features.
