4k tv with Chroma 4:4:4 under $600

MarcTale 207 25 January 11, 2016 at 03:19 PM
Hi there,
I have $500 in Amazon gift cards and are able to pay $100 extra for a 4k tv to use as a monitor for my laptop (for audio/video editing and some writing) so I think it would be best to have a tv capable of Chroma 4:4:4.

My eyes are on the 40-inch Samsung 6500 which was under $600 a few weeks ago but right now is over $700 including tax which is too much for me so I'm open to other brands. Smart capability is not really important.

Also important: Since I would like to use my Amazon gift cards it would have to be pricematchable (is that a word? ;-) to Amazon.

Thank you for hints and tips.

PS: As a non 4:4:4 I have the Seiki 4k 42-inch but I'm not sure if that's really usable for what I do (I work long hours) so feedback on that would also be really appreciated.

Sorry not much of help and IDK if this list is updated:


I added quite a few 2015 sets from LG, Samsung, Sony, and Sharp. My source for this information was

Also there are now several large format 4k PC monitors available, added to the list.

Because of the website as a resource, the increasing availability of 4K PC displays, and the increasing number of TV's that support 4:4:4 color, this list is becoming less relevant. But I believe it to be still helpful as not all new televisions support full subchroma yet, and as a reference for previous models.

Again, if anyone knows of models that should or should not be on the list, please comment.


It has been mentioned that only the nVidia Geforce GTX 900 series has an HDMI 2.0 output, necessary for 4K/60/4:4:4.

If any information in this post is inaccurate, please say something and I will correct it.

Also, just a side note, but 60Hz sets are great for PC use - if you want to feed a 24p signal, you may want a 120Hz set. Some of the sets in the list are 60Hz.


This list is desperately needed, because it's so difficult to round up this information.

For those not familiar with the issue, 4K TVs can make wonderful PC displays, but not many are compatible with 4:4:4 chroma subsampling at 60Hz and 4K resolution. If a display is not using this specification, text will appear blurry. See for details.

There is some controversy surrounding which displays are truly compatible with this spec. So please chime in and make suggestions, provide some proof, either personal experience or links to other places where it has been tested.

I will update the list as displays are proven. Thanks for helping build the list!
