Whether you’re looking for a new TV for your living room, or a secondary screen for the kitchen or bedroom, a 43-inch model has all the bases covered. Unless you have a large, open-plan style main room – in which case you’ll need a large TV, such as a wall-mounted 65-inch screen to ensure a good balance – a 43-inch TV is perfect for family viewing or quiet soap opera induced indulgence, with the lights turned low.
TVs with 4K get their name from the resolution being four times better than a standard model. This is measured by the number of pixels – the microscopic dots of colored light, that make up the image. A standard, non 4K model possesses 1920 × 1080 pixels (often expressed as 1080p) displayed in rows and columns, which provides an impressively accurate resolution, with realistic details and a wide range of colors. 4K, however, has 3840 × 2160 pixels – four times the amount. This offers a near unparalleled visual experience of vibrant, eye-popping colors, and impeccable detailing, only surpassed by the incredible 8K TVs.
Every one of the 43-inch 4K TVs featured here has been tested to ensure that the quality and performance meets, if not exceeds, our highest standards. Amongst other things, we test for:
- Resolution – the image quality must be superb, with vivid colors, deep dark shadows, and glorious detailing.
- Audio – the sound should provide an all-round experience, smoothly shifting from the quietest whisper to the loudest explosion.
- Performance – every model must perform to the best standards possible, offering an unbeatable TV adventure.
- Build quality – the components and their production must yell ‘Quality’, from the inner workings, to the exterior finish.
- Value for money – by balancing the price against the quality offered, we can establish whether value for money exists.
The models featured here have passed our tests with flying colors, allowing you to feel confident in your choice of TV.
Here, are our top recommended 43-inch 4K TVs of 2020.
