Hi Era! So I'm looking to buy a TV for myself and one for my Aunt. The TV for me I'm looking for something 4k or higher with a price range of about less than 500 550 max. 3-4 HDMI ports all the bells and whistles for that price range. I'm looking at Samsung TVs or LG.

The other TV I'm looking for is for my Aunt. She went through 3 TV's because she sleeps with them on and they haven't lasted more than 3-4 years. Is it possible to have a TV for such use that is less than 300?

Any advice will be appreciated.

Any reason you’re set on Samsung or LG? You’d get a lot more bang for your buck with TCL or Hisense in that price range

I'm not quite familar with TCL brand. How good are they?

Get a TCL 6 series for yourself unless you watch a lot of sports. LG and Samsungs at this price point aren't great.
What TCL do you recommend? I mostly play games and watch shows on my Apple TV. I want the best quality for my money and possibly futureproof.

TCL has kind of cornered the market on great entry level TVs. They've made TVs for a while under generic labels and started using their name. Hisense has also recently stepped their game up. Here's a nice list on RTings, I'd go by this and not mess with anything not on this list. Lots of lemons to be found by cheap store bought TVs. The TCL 5 Series might be worth looking at for your aunt I think it comes in smaller sizes. Also nice is the TCLs have Roku TV built in and works great. You mentioned using an apple TV so maybe not 100% necessary but it's probably the best Smart TV OS

Speaking to the cheaper TVs, if she’s not too picky I remember buying one for college in 2014 that was like, $200 for a 32” at Target. The value proposition has only gotten better since then.
