About this deal
Unexpectedly, the TV is actually detected by the Xbox Series X as supporting VRR (though only up to 60Hz, obviously). However, running VRR into the TV actually causes more screen tearing rather than reducing it as you’d expect. So much so, in fact, that it’s best not to think that the 50UK4D63DB supports VRR at all. The 55QA5D63DB is a better upscaler of HD sources than we might have expected for its money, adding good texture, sharpness and even depth to HD sources. And as one final small strength, its IPS panel retains colour better when the TV is viewed from an angle than rival VA-type panels would. It doesn’t help, either, that the mist and clouding that hangs over dark scenes can sometimes take on a reddish or bluish tint that throws up an even greater barrier between you and what you’re trying to watch.
The TV’s key feature is its Voice Remote with built-in Alexa voice assistant, allowing users to to easily find, launch, and control content, while the UF3D also supports Apple’s Airplay streaming tech. With just the right content, the 55QA5D63DB can deliver some pretty engaging pictures. Unfortunately, though, most of the time its picture quality varies between disappointing and flat-out poor.The Toshiba UF3D comes with a standard remote control, but several accessories can enhance your viewing experience. These accessories include: The 55QA5D63DB’s speakers, which have been designed in conjunction with Onkyo, are seriously powerful, making it one of the flat-out loudest budget TVs we’ve ever heard.
We’re not talking about brightness levels to rival those of any current premium TVs, of course, be they OLED or LCD. There are numerous mid-range and even lower-mid LCD models out there that can go brighter still, too. But by budget standards, the 50UK4D63DB produces comfortably more light with both full-screen bright HDR images and small HDR highlights than expected. The highlighting holds up even within already bright shots too, adding up to a more consistent and convincing HDR experience than you’d normally ever see at this price point. The Toshiba UF3D is a 50-inch Smart Fire TV that combines the latest in television technology with the convenience of streaming services. With its sleek design and numerous features, this television is an excellent option for anyone looking for a top-of-the-line viewing experience. Technology The 50UK4D63DB’s smart features are delivered by Toshiba’s own Linux-driven platform. This is tidily presented and pleasingly uncomplicated in its approach, and also ties in with the TV’s regular picture and sound set-up menus really well.When it comes to supported content, the young at heart will be happy to find Twitch and TikTok apps on the 50UK4D63DB’s app list, and those six direct app access buttons on the remote are welcome shortcuts. It’s a real shame, though, that Toshiba has not yet been able to persuade Disney+ or Apple TV to join the 50UK4D63DB’s cause. The Toshiba UF3D does not offer 8K resolution, the latest technology in high-resolution televisions. However, 8K resolution is still in its early stages, and content that supports this resolution is limited. It is expected that 8K content will become more widely available, but for now, the 4K resolution of the Toshiba UF3D provides an excellent viewing experience. HDR Technology
The Toshiba UF3D is available in a range of sizes, from 43 to 65 inches, making it suitable for viewing environments. The 50-inch model is popular, providing a large viewing area without being too bulky or expensive. Users can choose the size that best fits their viewing environment and budget. 4K Resolution QLED stands for Quantum Dot Light Emitting Diode and is a display technology that uses quantum dots to create brighter and more vibrant colors. This technology is similar to OLED but is more affordable and provides brighter images. QLED televisions are an excellent option for those who want a high-quality picture without spending much money. Ambient Mode The One Connect Box is a feature available on some Samsung televisions. This box connects to the tv and houses all of the connections, including HDMI and USB ports. This feature allows for a cleaner and more organized setup, as all cables can be hidden away in the box. This feature is ideal for those who want a neat and tidy home entertainment setup. AccessoriesAll new sets across all four ranges are set to feature the TikTok TV app built-in, allowing you to watch content from your 'For You' and 'Following' feeds on the big screen. Inevitably for a 50-inch TV costing this little, the 50UK4D63DB features a 60Hz panel. This, together with the limited bandwidth of its trio of HDMI ports, denies it any support for today’s 120Hz gaming graphics, at either 4K or HD resolutions.
