Updated for July: Make the jump to 4K without breaking the bank.

4K TVs are for the many, not the few anymore.

The price of ultra HD is not as sky high as you think anymore. In fact, for £500 or less, you can get the extra millions of pixels needed to power the 4K likes of the PS4 Pro, Sky Q and Amazon Prime Video. Let’s not forget the addition of HDR too.

So, we’re doing what we do best - going through what’s available and handpicking the five best 4K HDR TVs available for half a grand or less. A worthwhile investment in upgrading your living room.
