Best 4K TVs Under $1,000 for Your Home

Technology is always updating and changing. TVs have gone from black and white to color, to what we know as standard definition, to high definition, and now 4K. While some assume that having one of the best 4K TVs on the market means depleting your bank account, you can get a great TV for less than $1000. Here are the top 10 4K TVs under $1000.

An upgrade from the superb 2016 model, the Sony X800E has great picture quality. The colors on this top 4K TV are crisp and vivid thanks to the Triluminos Display.

This TV also features Dynamic Contrast Enhancer, which Sony says creates "brighter highlights, deeper blacks, and more natural tonal gradation.” For someone that doesn't prioritize size, this 49-inch screen is one of the best 4K TVs.

A true exception to the "Samsung is overpriced" rule, the MU8000 is definitely one of the best 4K TVs for less than $1000. This best 4K Ultra HD LED TV has far above average black uniformity, black levels, and gray uniformity, with a wide color gamut.

The MU8000 handles motion blur with ease and has above average upscaling. This TV also has four HDMI ports, perfect for all your systems, Blu-Ray players, and Chromecast.

Thanks to its IPS-style LED display, this TV has the best off-angle viewing you can have on a 4K TV. The UJ7700 also delivers a bright and clear picture with solid HDR performance. This TV also has a great Wii-style remote for operating the WebOS system.

Known for creating budget-friendly 4K TVs, TCL's P607 certainly fits that bill. TCL TVs come with Roku software built in for a user-friendly interface. This TV has lifelike color clarity and details, as well as, a full-array of backlighting that provides deeper blacks never seen before and a fast refresh rate that allows nearly zero motion blur, which is perfect for movies and sports.

The next step up from the previous Sony TV on this list, the X900E pushes the limit of the $1000 budget but is well worth the price if it can be afforded. This TV has the best blacks and colors on the market and is right near the top in terms of image quality.

The X900E has a FALD display which excels at local dimming that's combined with the superb colors, making this TV the top option for the combination of movies, TV, and sports, and one of the best 4K TVs available.

When it comes to making smaller screen TVs for a great value, there are few better than Vizio. The Vizio M-Series has the best picture quality in the 50-55 inch range. While there are better options for gamers, this TV will almost always win the pure picture battle.

This best 4K TV is the perfect balance between price point and quality. This TV has vibrant colors, a great native contrast ratio, and low input lag, making this a serviceable TV for both watching and recreational gaming.

The MU6300 also has an Eco setting, which adjusts the brightness of the screen based on the surrounding lighting. This TV has superb built-in speakers and a new remote with a microphone for voice commands.

While this TV isn't necessarily the best 4K TV on the market in terms of quality, customers won't be able to find a TV bigger than this 65 inch Vizio for less than $1000. This TV is also one of the more versatile TVs on the market, with a high contrast that can compete with any entry-level 4K TV. While this TV doesn't do many things great, it does everything very well for anyone using the TV, including gamers making it one of the best 4K TVs.

Coming in priced under $400 this is the best budget buy on the market. This low price point doesn't mean this TV suffers when it comes to performance, the UJ6300 has a high dynamic range (HDR) and True Color Accuracy for a lifelike color experience. The use of HDR helps optimize every scene, making bright colors brighter and dark colors darker.

This is the best curved 4K TV on the market. Samsung is known for having top of the line color features and this TV does not disappoint. The curved Auto Depth Enhancer helps improve contrast and draws the eye right to the screen, making this one of the best 4K TVs available.
