TCL to launch a 50-inch 4K TV, priced under $1,000

TCL, China’s leading TV manufacturer, is about to change the way we perceive 4K TVs (as very expensive piece of display technology) as they unveil the 7E51040 Ultra-HD; a 50-inch 4K TV which will only set you back USD999 a pop.

Ultra-HD (UHD) TVs or commonly known as 4K TVs are great. I mean who wouldn’t want a pixel-packed TV inside their living room. However, its premium price tag is well above the average consumer’s budget, prohibiting such devices to gain popularity in the market.

To give you a better idea on how inexpensive TCL’s new brainchild is, we’ve compiled some of the 4K TVs/monitors we’ve covered in the past with its respective SRP:


ASUS PQ321 (31.5-inch) – $3,999
Toshiba L9300 series (58-inch) – $4,999
Sharp PN-K321 (32-inch) – $5,500
LG 84LM960V (84-inch) – $19,999
Samsung UHD TV 85S9 (85-inch) – $39,999

As you can see, the TCL 7E51040’s price is well-below than any of the candidates above, placing it in a better position to slug it out with the top names in the business.

Of course, having a significant price drop will almost ultimately mean that there were sacrifices made; be it in the design or configuration. And while we can’t say much about its design because we haven’t had the chance to see the TV yet, we already noticed some corners that TCL had to cut to keep the price within the three-digit mark. The drawbacks include the lack of some of the standard ports found on a modern TV like DVI, HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort.

Nevertheless, it just doesn’t get any better than a USD999 50-inch 4K TV, right?

    Lilinaw ba ang YIFY at ETRG HD torrents pag dito ako nanood :-D

      actually, may chance na lumabo sa mas malaking screen. icompare mo yung mga 1080p YIFI torrents (usually LESS than 2GB file size) sa mga traditional 1080p ng iba (almost 8gb or higher). I didnt believe it the first time sinabi sakin ng friend ko, pero when i downloaded the same movie at kinompare ko, meron nga difference. although sa 42-inch TV ko kuntentong kuntento na ako sa YIFI 720p, ewan ko lang sa iba, kanya-kanyang trip yan.

      If you will be watching it in this tv and comparing it to a 50inch 1080p tv(let say the movie is 1080p movie)ganun pa rin ang kakalabasan if you want to watch where you can barely see the pixrls,watch it in a small 1080p screen(like yout cosmos z)

    This is a wow! I hope TCL can release it here in PH. Less than 1k USD is just around 40k PHP and that is a deal in itself.

    4K at less than $1,000?!? Baka naman hindi totoong UHD 4K TV ito?

  4. uuhmm...next says:

    nevermind,ill rather buy a 1080p Full HD TV rather than this,USD999 nga lng kaso binawasan ng features,i wont trade those features just for that resolution kasi di mo rin naman maeenjoy dahil most movies are only in Full HD pati mga cable channels,ung mga channel nga d2 sa pilipinas standard def pa rin eh #notworthit
