never mind the fact that 4K broadcast is still quite a distant away and the contents are limited, but when you have a 4K-capable TV costing under a grand you probably don’t mind future-proofing your home entertainment setup, don’t you? that’s what the Chinese TV maker TCL is offering with the TCL 50″ Edge LED 4K Ultra HD TV (7E504D) which has a sticker of just $999. man. this is totally unbelievable. a 4K TV for less than a grand? till now we are still in disbelieve. set to hit the stores this September, the 7E504D features edge-lit LED technology with 120Hz Clear Motion Index (CMI) engine and is designed to accept native 4K inputs such as from a PC or future 4K players.

other features include 3,840 x 2,160 resolution (obviously), SRS TruSurroundHD sound, upscale functionality to turn your HD contents to 4K quality, a 5,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, four HDMI inputs, as well as support for MHL connectivity for connecting with your smartphones or tablets while simultaneously charging your portable devices. it may be super affordable, but TCL does not sacrifice on design: the TCL 50″ Edge LED 4K Ultra HD TV sports a contemporary slim frame design with ultra-thin bezel in modern gunmetal gray finish to match its visual prowess. it is suffice to say that we both equally impressed by design and the price.
