I am trying to buy a 55" TV with 1080 res.

The Sony and LG 55" TVs only have two HDMI inputs. I need at least three.

I don't get it. A Sony Bravia from over 5 years ago has 3 HDMI inputs.

Wait, an Insignia 55" does have three.

Isn't it surprising so many would only have 2 HDMI inputs??

Are they lower priced models? Those are typical cost cutting measures the manufacturers use to keep the price low.


This is one way to work around it.

Yep, what he said. The other companies lilke Insignia and Vizio generally have more as a way to compete with the big boys.

Guys, a Vizio 55 inch 4k E series TV will be down around $600 or so. 3 HDMI ports and a built in Chromecast. 65 inch E series isn't much more either.

Usually, entry level has less features and less HDMI connections.
For instance, Samsung has entry level 5000 series and sold at Walmart. They do not carry 6000,7000, 8000 series TV's.
If you want more features, more HDMI and things like HDMI 'arc' for surround sound system, you have to spend more bucks.

Walmart has models of TV s made for them exclusively that use cheaper components and have fewer features to get the lowest prices.
