Toshiba 55L621U review alert after PS4 Pro bundle

For those that are looking for a 4K TV with PS4 Pro bundle, one deal which is catching the eye right now is from Best Buy who are offering a Toshiba 55-inch 4K TV with PS4 Pro for just $749.88.

On paper this is a highly attractive offer, as this is an instant saving of $200 when buying both separately at normal price – the PS4 Pro alone is $399.

The TV model number is the Toshiba 55L621U and we do want to point out a potential deal breaker for anyone who is thinking of buying this package.

This is namely the fact that the Toshiba 55L621U does not have HDR support! We find it amazing that Best Buy would put together this combination yet overlook the fact that the TV being offered does not support the feature that is a primary necessity of the PS4 Pro console.

Was it an oversight on their part or did they intend to lure in those who don’t really know the ins and outs of the PS4 Pro 4K features?

We really hope it was the former and not the latter, otherwise there is going to be some very unhappy gamers unwrapping this TV at the end of the month and finding out it doesn’t offer HDR or UHD dimming.

Confirmation of no HDR on the Best Buy Toshiba 55-inch 4K TV can be seen at the company’s product listing for this model here – you can also see full Toshiba 55L621U specs.

Obviously if you don’t care about HDR then this isn’t an issue, but that would be ridiculous to consider given it’s a major feature of the PS4 Pro.

What are your thoughts on this? Let us know if you considered a purchase on the Toshiba 55″ Class LED 4K Ultra HD Smart TV and PS4 Pro bundle but will now think twice.
