What is 4K TV?

A 4k TV, also known as a UHD TV (Ultra High Definition TV), is the latest technology in the world of televisions and it’s to do with picture quality.

4K TV As Opposed To a Full HD TV

A 4k TV delivers 8 million pixels! Compare that to the not so old Full HD TVs that delivered only 2 million pixels. This means that a 4k TV delivers 4 times the detail as compared to a 1080p Full HD TV.

Vertical and Horizontal Pixels

Don’t be confused though – the horizontal & vertical pixels of a 4k UHD TV (3840 x 2160 pixels) as compared to a FULL HD TV (1920 x 1080 pixels) are NOT 4 times, but twice. So mathematically, you’re not getting 4 times the pixels vertically/horizontally, but the total number of pixels on the screen is 4 times.
There has been endless debate on the internet on this, so now that we have it out of the way, let’s get straight into the best 4k TVs in UK within your budget.

4K for Gaming at Home?

If you are into console or PC gaming, you must check our favourite 4k TVs for gaming article which explains how Xbox or Playstation consoles don’t provide 4K content. PC gamers can connect a large screen 4K TV for 4K clarity if they have a graphics card that supports it. Therefore 4K TV upgrade from an existing Full HD TV is not necessary for console gamers, but those looking for a new TV must still go for 4K.

4K Content

Whatever your reason for buying a 4K TV, please make sure you have 4K content to watch on your 4K tv, or you’ll not witness the real magic of 4K technology. Most TV subscription services offer 4K content in the UK and it’s only going to increase in 2017.

While cheaper 4K UHD TVs are smaller screen size models with basic features, more expensive 4K TVs have large screen sizes, latest technology and smart features.

We have put together an honest and objective review of the best 4K TV options, taking into account best value for money and features. I’ve taken a look at reviews across the board and checked out forums to see feedback from customers and I’m hoping it’ll be helpful when you’re choosing your 4K TV.
