Another competitively priced UHD display is hitting the market, this time courtesy of Hisense electronics.
Following Seiki's recent reveal of a new 55-inch budget 4K TV, Hisense has detailed its own low cost Ultra HD set, the XT880. The 55-inch LCD 4K display will retail for $2,000. While that's $500 more than Seiki's similar offering, the XT880 includes various smart TV features, something that's missing on Seiki's competing SE55UY04.
The LCD LED backlit display features a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 giving it about four times the pixels of a traditional 1080p HDTV. The television also includes four HDMI inputs, a USB port for viewing digital media, built-in Wi-Fi, a static contrast ratio of 4000:1, and support for apps like Netflix, Vudu HD Movies, YouTube, Vimeo, Pandora, Twitter, Facebook, Picasa, and AccuWeather.
The XT880 is expected to go on sale in several retail stores, including Walmart, Costco, and hhgregg for a suggested retail price of $2,000.
