I am looking at getting a 55" television.  I am looking at the budget sets currently and the two that I have been looking at have pretty good reviews.  Best Buy has their Insignia brand for $399.99 while Walmart has a Septre 55" for $379.99.  I am not sure which one is the better quality.  After considering a 4K TV, research has told me that this isn't really worth the extra price yet.  If you have any advice on either of the mentioned TV's or if you have a good experience with a different brand let me know.  Thanks for your time.

Are these the two you're talking about?

 - http://www.bestbuy.c...3&skuId=4204503

 - http://www.walmart.c...D-HDTV/19527757

 

Neither of those brands would be considered top shelf, so I would start looking at other things, like...

 - Does it have enough HDMI ports?  They both have 3.

 - Do you want a PC input?  The Scepter looks to have a PC input.

 - Smart features matter to you?  Or will you rely on a BluRay player or Firestick or something else like me instead?

 - I'm told Best Buy has an excellent exchange policy if you buy their coverage plan, though I've never had to use it.  Not sure on Walmart.

 - Will you be using the TV's speakers or a speaker bar or home theater setup?  The Insignia looks like it may have more powerful speakers.

 

Looks like the Scepter has dropped in price to $350 at the moment.

 

They both appear to have a fair number of reviews and decent customer ratings.

The best TVs that you can find and the best prices are SAMSUNG an LG. There's a wide variety of those all over the place. There's even that much of them that you would probably need some time to spend researching for getting the best deal.

If you're buying a TV such as this you sure must pay attention to these little things like Pnambic said.  I would add that refresh rate (Hz) should be as high as possible. That is important if you use this TV to watch movies through your computer.
