There are two types of Ultra High Definition TV’s, there are those that cost an arm and a leg and are priced up to $1,900 for a 55″ inch plus model, or there are those like the Aldi model which is a seriously good 4K UHD TV for sub $800.
The Sony Bravia X8000C Series 55″ 4K Ultra HD LED LCD Smart TV retails at Harvey Norman for $1,268, while the LG 55″ 4K Ultra HD LED LCD 3D Capable Smart TV is selling for $1,995 both have similar specifications to the Aldi Bauhn 4K UHD TV.
