I'm sure it's junk but Brandsmart has Vidao 65" class 4K UHD for $500. Model is 65V41UHD. I know nothing about it, but... $500. Boasts of Roku Stick MHL compatibility which makes me think it's old design.

A few others for a couple of hundred more.

From the installation guide:
  • 4 HDMI (#1 is ARC, #4 is MHL)
  • 1 component input
  • 1 RCA audio input (in association with the component)
  • 1 optical audio output
  • 1 headphone audio output
  • 1 RF coax input
  • 1x USB (max 400 GB?)
  • Weight: 40.9 lbs
  • Contrast Ratio: 3000:1
  • Brightness: 200 cd/m2
  • Viewing Angle: 178°
  • Power Consumption: 220 W
  • Dimensions: 57.7" x 33.4" x 3.5"
  • Warranty: 1 year
I don't think this is a smart TV based on all the images in the guide. The remote certainly doesn't give confidence of it being smart with no smart buttons (Netflix, etc.).

I don't think this has HDR either. Menu images don't seem to show much in the way of picture options beyond the basics (color, tint, etc.).

Thanks for the details. I would have been shocked if it were smart tv because that's what the Roku feature is for (I think). I have a 55" Changhong I got in Mar 2016 which came with a coupon for a free or discounted stick.

Unfortunately it had been discontinued and is now a generation or two behind (you can get them on eBay, 3400 model, but they don't support Netflix profiles as I recall). That's why I thought old technology on the TV.

I wouldn't look for HDR in a $500 TV, in fact I was just hoping for a $600 65" 4K TV. My Changhong delivers a decent picture on HD source, a brand name would be much better I'm sure.

Forgot to say, I'd be worried about HDCP (?) 2.2, which my Changhong is lacking and means I can't get true 4K AFAIK (not from the cable company or a streaming device). At least that's what I understand.

For those who like your off-brand TVs slightly less unfamiliar, Wal-Mart has a Sceptre U650CV-U 65" UHD TV for $500 shipped too. Not a smart TV, no HDR, 60Hz, but... $500. Smilie
