Aldi is set to sell one of their lowest priced 55″ Ultra High Definition televisions next month, the new 55-inch Ultra HD LED 4K TV will be available at Aldi from Saturday December 15th selling for only $449 dollars.
The new 55-inch smart television has 3840 x 2160 resolution quality, a 4700:1 contrast ratio, and a 60Hz refresh rate. It comes with an built-in PVR recorder and HD tuner with ACR function. The TV will also come with a one-year warranty starting at the date of purchase.
The television is not a High Dynamic Range (HDR) unfortunately, like most newer smart TV’s, but is perfectly suitable for the everyday user. According to Gizmodo the 65-inch smart TV version of the Bauhn was selling for $799 at Aldi back in September. After testing this television researchers concluded that if consumers were to throw in a Chromecast box for just $50 more at the time purchase they would have a 4K capable smart TV.
Aldi expects stock to be very limited given the very low price-tag for this new 4K smart television. Given the nature of the product Aldi suggests consumers get in early to buy. The product is new, under $500 and can play video in 4K definition. What else would a consumer want when purchasing a brand new smart television.
