Here’s my bold, and maybe biased prediction: Red Sox are going to the World Series, Patriots are headed to the Super Bowl, Celtics are a lock for the NBA Finals, and the Bruins will compete for the Stanley Cup. If you’re a diehard Boston sports fan like myself and want to catch all the glory on something bigger and better than 32-inch TV, you can upsize your viewing experience at Amazon today with a snazzy deal on a Toshiba 50-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV for $349.99.
That’s a good deal even if you hate Boston sports (unthinkable!). This is one of Amazon’s Fire TV Edition models too, which means the Fire TV experience is built into the set for streaming goodness. It comes with a Voice Remote with Alexa, so you can bark commands from your couch to launch apps, search for TV shows, play music, and so forth.
Obviously at this price point you’re not getting a super high-end TV with an OLED panel and the absolute best picture quality around. However, it doesn’t appear to be a clunker, either. RTings posted an in-depth review of this very model (Toshiba 50LF621U19), scoring it a 7.0 (out of 10) for mixed usage, which is an average score of several individual categories (HDR, movies, TV shows, sports, gaming, and so forth).
“The picture quality of the Toshiba Fire TV Edition 2018 is decent. It has an excellent contrast ratio that enhances the image in dark environments and good SDR brightness and decent reflection handling to allow it to be placed in brighter rooms. On the other hand, the TV has a limited color gamut and can only achieve a mediocre color accuracy even when calibrated. The viewing angles are bad and that does not make it a good candidate for wide sitting areas,” the site says.
That’s not a glowing review, but it’s damning either. For the money, it sounds like this is certainly a serviceable option. If you’re interested, follow the link in the Via field, or click here to grab this deal.
