Sharp remains a very popular brand of television to buy during the Holiday sales, as retailers often cut prices down by huge amounts making Sharp the brand of choice for many excited shoppers.
The new Sharp LC-50LBU591U 50-inch 4K TV fits into this category for 2017 as it is going to be sold for a stunning price of just $179.99 after a whopping $320 discount.
Any 4K under $200 is going to attract a lot of attention, but we’re here to let you know what the Sharp LC-50LBU591U specs and features are to hopefully give you the heads-up you need on whether it is worth buying or not.
It features a 50-inch display with an ultra HD 2160p resolution, 4K upscaling, built-in Roku Smart TV service, 3 HDMI inputs which support HDCP 2.2, 1 USB port, 60Hz refresh rate and support for wall mounts.
The biggest problem with this TV though, is that the Sharp LC-50LBU591U does not support HDR which could be a deal breaker for potential PS4 Pro and Xbox One X gamers.
It is surprising to see that some 4K models are still being sold without HDR, but this could be a prime reason why it is going to be available under the $200 mark.
Furthermore, question marks may be raised on why the Best Buy listing for this model clearly states that it doesn’t offer HDR while Sharp’s listing on their website states that it does have HDR – talk about confusion for the consumer.
You can see from the Sharp LC-50LBU591U reviews here that other buyers have said that there is no HDR so take this as a warning when you head to Best Buy to buy this model.
Let us know your thoughts on it below, it is still a fantastic choice for under $200.
