Polaroid 43 43GSR4100KL 4K UHD TV reviews for 2017

By Alan Ng - Nov 23, 2017

Polaroid has become something of a budget specialist in the last few years, offering TV sets at a significantly lower price compared to rivals such as LG, Samsung, Vizio and of course other budget makers such as Westinghouse, Element and Emerson.

Now we can see that Polaroid are back with a new 4K TV model for 2017 with the Polaroid 43-Inch 4K UHD LED TV with Chromecast built-in. This is the Polaroid 4K 120Hz Smart UHD TV indentified by the model number 43GSR4100KL or 43GSR4100KN and it is sold exclusively at Target in the USA.

Polaroid 43GSR4100KL specs include a 43-inch display with an ultra HD 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, 60Hz native refresh rate, 120Hz motion rate, 3 HDMI inputs with 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 support and USB input.

The main highlight of this model however is the built-in Chromecast support which will act as the TV’s Smart functionality giving you access to many apps – all of which you’ll be able to control from the comfort of your smartphone before seamlessly casting to your TV.

We have to point out however that the Polaroid 43GSR4100KL review does not support HDR meaning that we can’t recommend it as a viable gaming TV for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X owners.


If you don’t need it for gaming though, it could still be a very attractive option for you, especially when Target are planning to sell this model for $230 during the Holiday sales.

If you are interested in buying it, we recommend you first read through the Polaroid 4K Ultra HD TV reviews for 2017 as the feedback is mixed to say the least – a 2* rating as of November 2017 so far, skip to the bottom of the page to see the reviews.

Luckily, we have located additional information on this model so you can make a more informed decision on whether you want to buy it or not from Target for $230 which is a time-limited price.

    just seen this on Target’s Black Friday deals. $229 seems too good to be true for a 43-inch 4K TV?? Is there a trap that I don’t know about Polaroid guys??

      I just bought one today and I’m satisfied. I’ve been watching 4K YouTube videos cast from my phone. My only complaint is that it’s blacks aren’t as black as I’d like to see. It’s really not much of a complaint though. At this price point I’m surprised to get all the features this set offers. The more I think about it for this size and specs I’m thrilled. I went into this purchase knowing that Polaroid TV’s usually score 2 stars. I’d give it 3 stars.
