Roku TV Which Brand Should You Buy?



Roku TV Which Brand Should You Buy?



Roku TVs are more popular than ever. When it comes to buying a Roku Smart TV, consumers are faced with a dizzying array of sizes and models made by TCL, Sharp, and Insignia.


While none of these may be in the same league as the high end OLED TV offerings from Sony, LG or Samsung, these lower cost Roku TVs offer something that many people will enjoy more and that the high end TVs don't offer. The Insignia, Sharp and TCL TVs offer the awesome Roku software which is what powers the operating system of these Roku Smart TVs.



Roku Smart TVs TCL vs Insignia vs Sharp


Roku Smart TVs are the only ones that gives you access to thousands of channels which contain a wide range of content and many Roku channels like these are even free.


Just because your not spending a fortune for a new TV, does not mean you need to scrimp on picture quality and reliability. Fortunately when it comes to Roku TVs, one model is above the rest when it comes to picture quality.


Insignia Roku TVs

This is Best Buy's house brand TV. They are inexpensive for a reason and if all your after is a low priced TV that you don't plan on keeping forever, it may be fine. Their less expensive 720p or 1080p models may even save you a few bucks as will those from Sharp or TCL. 

These won't give you the same exceptional picture quality nor will the Roku software be as fast or fluid as a model that can output 4K. That's because Roku reserves their more expensive processors and hardware for their top of the line 4K media streamers and Smart TVs.


Sharp Roku TVs

This is actually just a rebadged Insignia TV made for Best Buy. You will not be gaining anything by buying a Sharp Roku TV vs an Insignia unless you would rather have a Roku TV with a Sharp logo. A Sharp Aquos this TV isn't so don't expect the same level of picture quality that their legendary Aquos line of TV's were known for.


TCL Roku TVs

Roku Smart TVs
The new 2018 TCL 6 Series are the current top of the line Roku TVs made by TCL. They have been getting some really great reviews for the most outstanding picture quality among all Roku TVs and these are some of the best Roku TVs you can buy.


Their 4K TCL TVs are every bit as fast and just as responsive as a Roku stand alone top of the line 4K Roku media streamer like a Roku Ultra.

When buying a TCL 4K TV, you are getting Roku's fastest hardware which will make your Roku TV a lot more future proof. Something that is important to think about when buying a Smart TV as these are not upgraded nearly as often as stand alone Roku Media Streamers and Roku Streaming Sticks because Smart TVs cost a lot more to upgrade. Sure you can add a faster stand alone media streamer to your Roku Smart TV, but that kind of defeats the purpose of not needing to have dangling wires, or something else plugged into your TV.

If you want to buy a new Roku Smart TV, the 2018 TCL 4K HDR models are the ones that should be at or near the top of your list. They have the best picture quality and when buying a new TV, PQ should really be one of your top considerations.
