a good number of reviewers say the sound is bad (Even if you plug in other speakers).

I have a similar TV from a year ago (Roku/TCL/43"). Sound is "fine" for a small bedroom but speakers would suck for a larger area. We watch netflix/Amazon/Plxex on it. Its fine for that purpose before ZzZzZ.
No offense but the sound quality of a tv that's not even the same brand, let alone model, is kind of irrelevant.

I bought my son's family an ONN TV from Walmart. It had stickers on it. When they attempted to remove one of the stickers on the lower right side of the flimsy frame, it caused damage. Now the entire 2" of the bottom of the screen is one big streak.

Only benefit of 4K for a panel this size is to be used as a monitor. And if you're going to use a TV as a monitor, you might as well get the 40" Vizio V series for an extra $20-40.

Because the viewing angles on a 16:9 | 43" are just a tad too wide, even at a 3 ft distance.

Good point but I actually think all of these 43" Roku televisions (Westinghouse, TCL, Onn) are really the same manufacturer. Like many devices these days they make small modifications for each client brand but a lot of the guts are the same. I had the Westinghouse 43" and it broke. Returned it and got TCL and it is pretty much the exact same TV.

For as many 4K TVs that are on sale/clearance right now, this is not the best price for its size and brand. Pass

If you need this size (For whatever reason) this is actually a great price. 40 & 43" 4k TVs are in short supply right now

Does anyone know if it supports 4:4:4 chroma? (i.e. for use as a computer monitor?)

I'd been looking for a guest bedroom "budget TV" when I saw the onn 55" at my local Walmart for $150. Despite having zero knowledge of onn brand or what to expect, I decided to ignore the obvious red flags (strange off-brand name, extremely low price point, etc.) and "chance it" as it'd (probably) be fine for a guest room?! Happy b/c of the price yet wary b/c of the old adage "if it seems too good to be true..."and "you get what you pay for", I tried to adjust my expectations accordingly (low). Unboxing was promising, it seemed to be well made, setup was easy, picture quality was better than expected... sound quality, as many have mentioned, wasn't good (at all), but using a sound bar in place of poor quality speakers was an easy fix. I was really proud of my my thrifty lil TV purchase. 😁 Untilll one day I turned it on and the screen stayed completely black. 😣 The audio was fine, you could power off/on, change channels etc. but the screen stayed black. I looked online trying to "troubleshoot" and found the issue to be fairly common with onn TVs. After trying a few "reset" tips with no luck, ended up junking it and chalking it up to a lesson learned. $150 for a TV you have to replace every 6mos isn't my idea of a good deal...no more onn products for me.

i scooped up the last one (or so i was told, after initially forgetting my wallet at point of purchase) for my parent's (low - no occupancy) front room; they just needed something w better Energy output estimate than the 2007 Insignia currently setup.

That TV still has one of my (first) old LG soundbars connected, so I'll most likely be swapping that in to the Onn (from what i've read here)

EDIT:
The set's native 2.0 sound output is really awful (so bad one could only assume engineers were confident consumers would rely on some other intermediate audio-relay device). But a deep storage (2011) soundbar immediately remedied the deficit (via HDMI [CEC or ARC] or digital coaxial - both are utilized for my parent's set-up, obviously not on the same channel/input).
Without a soundbar (or some other system), the audio sounds as if relayed through walkie-talkies, shouldn't be an option for anyone.

The picture is def on the darker side, adjusting dynamic contrast is requisite, but even that doesn't entirely resolve the darker image. So in all likelihood they'll probably bypass any Energy-savings pre-settings.

The system's HDMI-CEC is responsive, even w pre-2015 gear everything's controlled w their preferred remote, via Fire TV Stick 4K, w/ Alexa Voice Remote (still controls everything).
I personally detest the set's (internal) Roku (app) interface and will most likely never access it, favoring Kodi for all media streaming
