Other offers in this class

The 58UL2163DB is not the only budget TV in the segment. Here are just some of the competitors:
  • Toshiba 58UL2063DB - probably one of the biggest competitors comes from Toshiba as well. The 58UL2063DB is a decent 4k Smart TV with similar price (as brand new item).
  • JVC LT-58CA810 - priced at around £400 the LT-58CA810 is another good alternative.
  • Hitachi 58HK6100U - this TV has been on the market for quite some time and become of the most popular Hitachi 4k TVs in the last couple of years. Since it is not a recent model, there are probably some very good deals for refurbished items.
So, can we conclude that the Toshiba 58UL2163DB is a proper big screen TV for under £300?
Well, definitely yes, especially if you are in UK and you need something big for home cinema or sports, that would be one of the best budget choices right now.
