What experts liked
40-inch screen is great size for bedroom or rec room. With a fast and refresh rate, you'll have a good image quality for fast moving video, such as with action movies or sports.
- BestReviews
The best thing about the 3- and 4-Series TVs is built-in Roku. It gives you dead-simple access to just about every streaming app available, including Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Sling TV, Pluto TV and more.
- CNET
What experts didn't like
Limited to full HD resolution (rather than offering 4k resolution quality).
- BestReviews
Their picture quality is mediocre. They can't compete with more expensive sets for black-level performance, contrast or pop.
