Best 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD Roku Smart LED TV Under $500

Written by

TCL, one of the world’s largest TV manufacturers in the world and America’s fastest growing TV brand, bring the latest in 4K technology and design. We’ve simplified the 4k Ultra HD TV so you can instantly enjoy endless entertainment. With HRD compatibility, choose from more than 4,000 streaming channels that feature 450,000 movies and TV episodes plus live sports, news, music, kids, and family, food, science and tech, fitness, foreign language and so much more.

What makes every Roku TV great?

Streaming made simple.
Roku TV makes streaming a snap. Just connect to your wireless network, and create a Roku account to easily sign up for free trials, subscribe, rent or buy. An intuitive interface, a simple remote, and a convenient mobile app for iOS® and Android™ make it easy to find what you want to watch.

450,000+ movies and TV episodes.
Stream just about anything – movies, TV shows, live sports, news, and music. Find popular choices that you can rent, buy, subscribe to or watch for free.

Unbiased search across top channels.
From the latest movies and shows to cult classics, find that perfect something effortlessly. Search through a wide selection of paid or free channels — by actor, title, or director — using your Roku remote, Roku mobile app, or voice search. And find where your favorites are free or cheapest to watch with unbiased search across top channels.

Follow your favorite movies, shows, and more.
With Roku Feed™, you can follow movies, TV shows, actors, and directors and get automatic updates when new content is ready to stream or when the price drops. Roku Feed even searches across top channels and recommends TV shows and movies you’re sure to love.

First a note about TCL, a manufacturer that few are familiar with in North America. This is a huge company with a $4B panel manufacturing facility in China. They also have a research facility in Silicon Valley and claim to be the third largest manufacturer of TVs in the world. The S405 Model from TCL is still super cost effective but adds 4K resolution and HDR capability to the S305 model below it. There are lots of reasons to purchase this TV, the best of which is still price and the Roku OS.
