Match the 4K TV to the PS4 Pro.

39 replies 459 views Edited Mar 20, 2017
I'm looking to purchase a relatively cheap ( if possible ) TV that would support PS4 Pro without any problems.

From what I've gathered, I need a TB that supports HDMI 2.0 in combination with HDCP 2.2.

I'm looking for about a 55 inch ( size can vary ) but I don't want any black screens or trouble shooting, price range around 500 would be preferable ( i spent 700 on my monitor, I'm not being cheap, just broke. )

This TV was perfect http://www.bestbuy.com/site/vizio-55-class-54-64-diag--led-2160p-smart-4k-ultra-hdtv-black/4453604.p...

Until I read an article stating vizio D models had problems with PS4 Pro. Model number D55U-D1 for those who don't like links from scary strangers.

Then I asked bestbuy chat, they pretended to have a clue but really didn't understand the compatibility issues I was concerned about and they recommended a Sony TV: BRAVIA XBR X700D Series Model Number XBR-55X700D Link : http://www.bestbuy.com/site/sony-55-class-54-6-diag--led-2160p-smart-4k-ultra-hd-tv-with-high-dynami...

It's a few hundred out of my price range.

I'm doing research behind the scenes as well and will update here if I figure anything out, but I really want to spent as little money as possible but am willing to spend extra to avoid any HDR or black screen issues with the PS4 Pro. Thank you in advance, once this is done I'm on my way to the store.

( My local stores include target, Best Buy, Samclub, Walmart, etc ) so i should hopefully be able to find any recommendations here in person.

Quick update
Via Forbes article listed 11/26/2016 @ 8:45AM* talking about the PS4 Pro's issues with some* 4K TVs.

" Second, it suggests that only some 2016 Vizio ranges are affected by the problem. The SmartCast Home Theater Displays that should work fine are the P Series, the M series (except, possibly, the M60-C3), and the E Series. The Internet Apps Plus models that may well have a problem are the ‘Reference’ RS series (oops), and the D Series.

For owners of potentially affected Vizio TVs, the situation as described by Vizio’s statement is far from ideal. "

Full article link goes into more depth about different brands.
https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.forbes.com/sites/johnarcher/2016/11/26/ps4-pro-tv-connection-proble...


If this article is to be trusted, I found a good E series that is within my price range, but will need more opinions here before I consider purchasing anything.

E Series E55-E2 Full link seen here: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/vizio-55-class-54-5-diag--led-2160p-with-chromecast-built-in-4k-ultra-hd...

If some cannot recommend any specific exact TV, I would appreciate any guidelines to follow or to look out for to assure the TV I purchase will have absolutely no problems with the PS4 Pro. Thanks again.

Forgive me I cannot edit my posts. Vizios response makes me wary of their TVs in general, found an LG that would also be within my price range and mentions HDR, 4K https://m.samsclub.com/ip/55-uhd-smart-3-hdmi-hdr-wifi/prod20151917?pid=_CSE_Google_PLA_350135&sourc...

http://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-55UH615A-4k-uhd-tv

Lists that it does have HDCP 2.2, but doesn't specify HDMI 2.0.

This article below lists a Reddit user supposedly confirming it does have HDMI 2.0, but obviously even the poster said take that with a grain of salt.

https://www.reddit.com/r/hometheater/comments/4e74ml/lack_of_info_about_the_lg_55uh615a/

This could be the one guys. That's all my investigative capabilities for tonight, now I retire.

At that price range I would look into a better 1080p set. 4K does not add a lot, and HDR at that price will not give you a true HDR experience. Depening on the TV you have now it may be better to just save your money until, 1. You have enough for a better TV, or 2. TV tech that can give you a good PS4 Pro experience comes down in price. 

 

If you want a great PS4 Pro experience you need to be looking at Fully Array LED, or OLED 4K HDR screens. These are currently quite pricey, but they really show what 4K & HDR can offer. A cheap 4K screen can actually be worse than a 1080p set due to refresh rates, and underpowered processors causeing artifacting, judder, lag, and other display noise.

I currently have a Samsunf 4K and Monitor 4K, unfortunately my bed room TV where I plan to set up is 1080i, so I'm definitely only looking to purchase a 4K tv.

Have you checked out my above LG link for 600? It looked promising.

I am willing to budge on price, i think I could find a decent 4K for what I need 500 - 650. My concerns are more on making sure i don't get the black screen with the PS4. I'll be a good 5 - 10 feet away from the tv, and will use it as a second monitor occasionally.

Thank you John for the website as it is fairly informative, I searched for the LG 55UH615A on it and could only find information pertaining to http://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/lg/uh6150
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/lg-55-class-54-6-diag--led-2160p-smart-4k-ultra-hd-tv-gray-black/5029400...

The only mention of the " A " model I could find was the reddit post here https://www.reddit.com/r/hometheater/comments/4e74ml/lack_of_info_about_the_lg_55uh615a/ and all I could find was someone complaining about it.

Although the A model looks good on paper http://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-55UH615A-4k-uhd-tv

Non A model: http://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-55UH6150-4k-uhd-tv which was the one I found on Rting

Just called LG customer service and the guy said there is no difference between the A and 0 model of LG, which I find odd.

This is what I plan to purchase.

http://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/samsung/ks8000

only a LG OLED would be better but cost is way to expensive.
