I’ve been looking at these 9 options for TVs through an incentive I have earned. The TVs are all attractive in one way or another, but can you TV experts help narrow the field for me? Thank you in advance! Here are the 9 options:

Insignia - 55- Class - LED - 2160p - Smart - 4K UHD TV with HDR - Fire TV Edition

TCL 50" 4K HDR LED TV With Roku

VIZIO V555-G1 V Series - 55" Class (54.5" viewable) LED TV - 4K

Toshiba 55LF711U20 55" Class (54.6" viewable) LED TV - 4K

Insignia NS-55D420NA20 55" Class (54.6" viewable) LED TV - Full HD

Samsung UN49M5300AFXZA 49" M5300 Series Full HD Smart LED TV

SAMSUNG 55 Inch NU6900 Smart 4K UHD TV

LG 55" 4K HDR Smart LED UHD TV w/ AI ThinQ

Sharp LC-55LBU711U 55" Class (54.6" viewable) LED TV - 4K

Well you can easily cut your list by half sticking with the tvs with the best track records.

VIZIO
SAMSUNG
LG

What Size & Smart features is up to you.

You should make sure you choose one with:
RF Tuner for OTA/Antenna TV (cable tv is dying )
HDMI inputs (3+)
USB


Once you narrow down your choices go check them out in person (if possible).

What's your budget? That matters as well.

And do you still have cable/satellite TV or are you a cord cutter?

I have a 55" TCL that I love but I am a cord cutter and would recommend that only if you are, as well.

BB has a 55” TCL on sale for $279.99. Hard to go wrong at this price.

Any of the options will be in my incentive plan, so they are all equal to me.

I see - you don’t have to buy it.

SAMSUNG 55 Inch NU6900 Smart 4K UHD TV

That’s the one I’d pick.

Basically it's getting rid of all cable tv service. Some people also get rid of cable internet in favor of cellphone internet service. But that's not feasible for everyone.

If you have to ask, then you aren't one.
Go Samsung or LG.
