The LG 43UJ750V is probably the best 43-inch TV in our list here. Although at a far more expensive selling price.

Picture quality is superb and the colour is rich and deep thanks to its IPS display panel. The quality of the picture is further enhanced with the inclusion of LG’s very own technology – Ultra Luminance, Colour Master Engine, HDR Effect, and the support of HDR content.

Audio is powerful and the clarity is superb thanks to its 20W speakers. However, it may not be on par with a sound bar but it gets the job done and is powerful enough for you to enjoy a decent time for a movie.


Sony KD-43XE8005

Best 43-Inch Ultra HD 4K Smart TV (2017)

 

Key Features:

  • Ultra HD 4K
  • Edge-LED System
  • IPS Panel
  • 4K X-Reality Pro Clarity Enhancement
  • Live Colour Technology TRILUMINOS
  • 50 Hz Refresh Rate
  • 20W Speakers (Bass Reflex Speaker)
  • Android TV
  • Freeview HD

  • HDD Recording - Record your favourite TV shows - Programme your TV to record your favourite show with the simple connection of a USB hard drive



Like the LG 750V, the Sony XE8005 is also one of the best 43-inch 4K Smart TV that you can buy. This TV is packed with Sony technology and the picture quality is slightly better than the LG but for a much more expensive price.

The picture quality is superb thanks to all the picture enhancing the technology of Sony. However, it has a lower contrast ratio and it’s probably due to the use of an IPS display panel. Other than that, the picture quality is superb.

The audio quality is strong and packs a punched and that’s probably thanks to its bass reflex speaker type system. You will not find a need to add an extra speaker or grab a soundbar. The speakers are strong enough to provide a detailed and clear audio quality in a room size. For bigger rooms, you might want to think otherwise.
