CES 2018 - Westinghouse makes a splash in the affordable 4K UHDTV market with budget-friendly 43-inch sets.
4K UHDTV adoption is set to climb throughout 2018 and 2019 as more and more consumers buy into the tech for gaming, streaming, and other interactive mediums, but one of the biggest hurdles is price. Now companies like Westinghouse are making 4K TVs more accessible with a line of televisions that won't break your wallet. At CES 2018 in Las Vegas, Westinghouse showed off a 43-inch 4K UHDTV that costs just $350.
As you'd expect the set doesn't have HDR capabilities (too bad!), but it does come with smart-enabled capability with Android and Wi-Fi built right in--so it's a good solution for Google Cast and other options to cast from your wireless devices and such. Westinghouse's 43-inch 4K TV also has a 120Hz refresh rate, but don't expect outstanding visuals without HDR tech (it's a budget set after all).
If you're looking for the optimum, top-tier 4K TV to enjoy your new Xbox One X, then you want to look elsewhere. But this is a good starter 4K set nonetheless that can do lots of different things (provided you have the devices and peripherals to take advantage of built-in Android and Wi-Fi).
