There was once a time when a 43-inch or a 49-inch TV was considered to be the standard for a large TV experience in a living room. But today, that has changed. Now a 55-inch TV is a norm for a large screen experience in the living room. If you thought you’d have to spend a lot of money to get a good 55-inch TV, then we say, think again. There are a lot of options available on a budget. Even though these TVs are on a budget you can expect some of them to bring unique UI elements, some smart features and support for 4K and HDR. So here is a look at some 55-inch TVs on a budget that are available on Amazon.
