Best 4K TV 2018: 8 awesome Ultra-HD TVs you need to see to believe | Tech & Gadgets

Best 4K TVs Buying Guide: Welcome to TechRadar’s round-up of the best 4K TVs you can buy for any budget in 2018.

Years ago, your friends might’ve thought you were crazy to invest in a 4K TV. Some might have told you that there wasn’t any content available and that “4K TVs look just as good as HD TVs”. They weren’t right then, and they’re not right now. 4K TVs aren’t a passing fad, they’re the future of TV technology.

So why have 4K TVs taken off like they have? Well, for one, they look four times as awesome. (No seriously, 4K isn’t just a catchy marketing term, 4K TVs are actually four times the resolution of traditional 1080p displays.) But, perhaps more importantly, TV makers have joined the 4K revolution en masse. Sure, they’ll still make 1080p TVs for the next three or four years, but anything in a 40-inch and above will probably have a 4K resolution now until the end of time. 

To be honest, it’s 4K or the highway these days.

That’s good because 4K TVs truly make a world of difference to the shows and movies you love to watch. So, trust us, bring one of these Ultra-HD TVs home and you’ll never want to look at a 1080p screen ever again.

What’s so great about 4K TVs?

Not only do these screens have four times the amount of pixels as their aged (but still-revered) 1080p brethren, but 4K screens also usually pack in screen technology like High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut (WCG) that really make those extra pixels shine in all their glory. 

The last reason 4K TVs have taken off is that game consoles, like the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, have totally embraced the 4K future, as have the Blu-ray industry and streaming video player market. Pretty much everyone is on board the 4K Ultra HD train these days.
