Top 10 rating according to KP

1. Sony KD-43XF8096

Sony KD-43XF8096. Pho­to: Sony

A high-qual­i­ty 43-inch mod­el from the Japan­ese brand, which is one of the most tech­ni­cal­ly advanced devices in the seg­ment. Sony decid­ed not to waste time on tri­fles and installed an IPS-matrix with a res­o­lu­tion of 4K with a view­ing angle of 178 ° and capa­ble of play­ing video in HDR 10. Smart TV here runs on Android and an expe­ri­enced user can eas­i­ly cus­tomize the TV for them­selves using third-par­ty pro­grams. How­ev­er, the man­u­fac­tur­er “did not report” the pow­er and many users com­plain about the thought­ful­ness of the inter­face and the lag of the shell. And the TV has Blue­tooth, which can­not work with wire­less head­phones.

Pros and cons

Famous brand, great pic­ture
Does not work with Blue­tooth head­phones, over­priced

2. LG 43UK6300

LG 43UK6300. Pho­to: LG

One of the small­est and most afford­able 4K TVs. 43 inch­es, IPS-matrix and low bright­ness of 250 cd/m2. There is a fast smart TV on webOS, full of ports and wire­less inter­faces. Comes with a handy Mag­ic Remote. Some do not like the exces­sive thick­ness of the case, while oth­ers com­plain about the soapy pic­ture in ana­log tele­vi­sion. How­ev­er, the last draw­back is small — in 2019 Rus­sia com­plete­ly switched to dig­i­tal tele­vi­sion broad­cast­ing.

Pros and cons

4K res­o­lu­tion and high pix­el den­si­ty at a small diag­o­nal, smart TV and Inter­net access
Not the thinnest body

3. Polarline 43PL51TC

Polar­line 43PL51TC. Pho­to: Polar­line

Inex­pen­sive 43-inch TV from the Russ­ian brand Polar­line with Chi­nese roots. Its main advan­tage is a bright LCD screen with Full­HD res­o­lu­tion, a bright­ness of 270 cd/m2 and a pix­el response time of 8 ms. Although there is no smart TV here, the TV can inde­pen­dent­ly play video files from exter­nal media. In this mod­el, you can find fault with the weak sound and the light of the matrix encoun­tered on some spec­i­mens.



Pros and cons

Good screen, bud­get price
Weak sound will require the pur­chase of exter­nal acoustics


TCL L43P6US. Pho­to: TCL

43-inch TV from a lit­tle-known in Rus­sia, but a huge Chi­nese cor­po­ra­tion TCL, which spe­cial­izes in the pro­duc­tion of house­hold appli­ances. This mod­el has not only a matrix res­o­lu­tion of 3840 × 2160 pix­els, but also a spec­tac­u­lar appear­ance with min­i­mal frames. The TV can update the pic­ture at 60 Hz, and the view­ing angle here is 178 °. The assem­bly is done to a good stan­dard. Some may not like a smart TV that runs on Lin­ux and is not very fast. And yet, the sound here is only 16 watts, which is bare­ly enough even for a small room.

Pros and cons

Inter­est­ing design, 4K for lit­tle mon­ey
Not the fastest smart TV

5. Xiaomi Mi TV 4X 43

Xiao­mi Mi TV 4X 43. Pho­to: Xiao­mi

Inex­pen­sive TV for fans of the pop­u­lar Xiao­mi. The 43-inch matrix has a res­o­lu­tion of 1920 × 1080 pix­els and is made using IPS tech­nol­o­gy. There is a smart TV based on Android with a pro­pri­etary MIUI shell, as well as many ports and inter­faces. The sound on the TV is frankly weak, and the built-in dig­i­tal tuner does not under­stand the sig­nal in DVB-T2, which Russ­ian tele­vi­sion switch­es to. How­ev­er, it’s not worth rush­ing to buy this par­tic­u­lar mod­el, in April the Chi­nese showed a new gen­er­a­tion of TVs, and if you dare to order a pan­el from Chi­na, you can snatch a new prod­uct for only $ 300 (19.2 thou­sand rubles).

Pros and cons

Well-opti­mized smart TV, qual­i­ty build
There is no Russ­ian lan­guage in the offi­cial firmware, does not sup­port dig­i­tal in DVB-T2

6. Hyundai H‑LED43F501SS2S

Hyundai H‑LED43F501SS2S. Pho­to: Hyundai

A TV with an unmem­o­rable name H‑LED43F501SS2S is not as sim­ple as it might seem at first glance. First­ly, Full­HD-matrix pro­duces nat­ur­al col­or and high con­trast. In addi­tion, the screen has a mat­te fin­ish, which will save the view­er from unpleas­ant glare. Sec­ond­ly, there is a good smart TV that runs on Android and has 8 GB of built-in mem­o­ry. As dis­ad­van­tages, you can record only a weak sound at 16 watts.

Pros and cons

Mod­er­ate­ly priced, excel­lent mul­ti­me­dia fea­tures
Weak built-in speak­ers

7. Panasonic TX-43FXR610

Pana­son­ic TX-43FXR610. Pho­to: Pana­son­ic

Anoth­er TV rep­re­sent­ing the top of the 43-inch seg­ment. There is an excel­lent IPS-matrix with a res­o­lu­tion of 3840 × 2160 pix­els. The TV has one of the bright­est matri­ces on the mar­ket — as much as 350 cd / m2. Smart TV here runs on Fire­fox OS from the devel­op­er of the brows­er of the same name. There are still few appli­ca­tions for the plat­form in the store, but in gen­er­al the sys­tem works very quick­ly. Unless some­one may not like the sound, as well as frag­ile legs for hor­i­zon­tal instal­la­tion.

Pros and cons

Excel­lent pic­ture qual­i­ty, fast smart TV per­for­mance
Legs for hor­i­zon­tal instal­la­tion could be stronger

8 Philips 43PUS6503

Philips 43PUS6503. Pho­to: Philips

The 2018 mod­el is from the Euro­pean brand Philips, now owned by the Chi­nese. In a rel­a­tive­ly small diag­o­nal, 4K res­o­lu­tion is “packed” in a good IPS matrix. The TV sup­ports con­tent in HDR 10. The man­u­fac­tur­er did not save on ports and inter­faces — there is USB 3.0, dual-band Wi-Fi and a clas­sic 3.5 mm audio jack. But there is a prob­lem with the “smart” com­po­nent. The fact is that the TV runs on the Saphi TV plat­form, which is used only by Philips. In fact, this smart TV sup­ports lit­er­al­ly sev­er­al appli­ca­tions, includ­ing YouTube.

Pros and cons

Excel­lent per­for­mance in the seg­ment for rea­son­able mon­ey, 4K res­o­lu­tion
Saphi TV plat­form suf­fers from lack of app

9. Harper 43F660TS

Harp­er 43F660TS. Pho­to: Harp­er

The Tai­wanese com­pa­ny Harp­er is rel­a­tive­ly new to the Russ­ian mar­ket, but has already found its buy­er, also thanks to the 43F660TS mod­el. 43-inch screen with Full­HD res­o­lu­tion, accept­able col­or repro­duc­tion and good view­ing angles. There is wired and wire­less Inter­net access and, of course, smart TV that runs on the Android oper­at­ing sys­tem. But there is one caveat. Harp­er 43F660TS has two revi­sions that dif­fer in built-in mem­o­ry. One has 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB of inter­nal mem­o­ry, and the sec­ond has 0.5 / 2 GB. Of course, the sec­ond option will give its user a lot of incon­ve­nience with brakes and lags.

Pros and cons

Decent screen, smart TV
When buy­ing, you may get a ver­sion with a reduced mem­o­ry

10. LG 43UJ750V

LG 43UJ750V. Pho­to: LG

It is no coin­ci­dence that the sec­ond mod­el from LG made it into the TOP 10 best 43-inch TVs of 2021. The fact is that the 43UJ750V has a screen made using Nano Cell tech­nol­o­gy, cre­at­ed by LG, as an alter­na­tive to OLED matri­ces. The advan­tages of the dis­play are improved col­or repro­duc­tion, extend­ed dynam­ic range and a wide view­ing angle. The TV has 4K res­o­lu­tion and sup­ports HDR 10. There is a fast smart TV on webOS, a scat­ter­ing of ports and wire­less inter­faces. But the 3.5 mm audio jack, as LG often does, they for­got to add here.

Pros and cons

One of the best screens in the class, fast smart TV
High price

How to choose a 43 inch TV

43-inch TVs are a tran­si­tion­al size between com­pact mod­els and large pan­els. This fact has left its imprint on a seg­ment in which man­u­fac­tur­ers are in no hur­ry to offer the lat­est tech­ni­cal solu­tions. KP offers tips on how to choose a 43-inch TV in 2022.


The cost of the best 43-inch TVs in 2022 starts from 15 thou­sand rubles for a sim­ple mod­el. In the price range of 20–30 thou­sand rubles, there are already advanced TVs, if you look, even with 4K res­o­lu­tion. But mod­els with a price tag of 30 thou­sand rubles can offer many options and char­ac­ter­is­tics that the “big broth­ers” have.

In the 43-inch seg­ment, man­u­fac­tur­ers are in no hur­ry to make TVs with OLED screens. Most like­ly, brand mar­keters believe that buy­ers of rel­a­tive­ly small mod­els are not ready to spend extra mon­ey on OLED. There­fore, in the class there are only LCD screens, but of dif­fer­ent qual­i­ty. So, HD res­o­lu­tion is rare here — most often the best 43-inch TVs in 2021 have a res­o­lu­tion of 1920 × 1080 pix­els. Cheap mod­els have unnat­ur­al col­ors, low con­trast and poor view­ing angles. High-qual­i­ty IPS matri­ces often also have 4K res­o­lu­tion. Almost all of the best 43-inch TVs of 2022 from famous brands sup­port accu­rate play­back of HDR video.



Smart TV

Not all 43-inch TVs have smart TV sup­port, but some­where it pro­vides a stripped-down func­tion­al­i­ty. The most flex­i­ble in terms of cus­tomiza­tion is Android in its adapt­ed form for a non-touch TV screen. How­ev­er, some Chi­nese man­u­fac­tur­ers save on the proces­sor and mem­o­ry, which is why the “green robot” starts to slow down a lot. Large brands pre­fer to use pro­pri­etary plat­forms, for exam­ple LG has webOS Smart TV. Usu­al­ly, in them, each appli­ca­tion is opti­mized for a spe­cif­ic TV, but there is often a lack of soft­ware diver­si­ty.


Due to the desire of man­u­fac­tur­ers to make the case as thin as pos­si­ble, the built-in sound in mod­ern TVs leaves much to be desired. The main char­ac­ter­is­tic that you need to pay atten­tion to if you are inter­est­ed in audio is the total out­put pow­er. The best 43-inch 2022 TVs have it at a lev­el of 20 watts. But if you want to con­nect exter­nal speak­ers, then you will need a 3.5 mm audio jack or Blue­tooth sup­port. Wire­less con­nec­tion has var­i­ous nuances, for exam­ple, some TVs refuse to work with BT head­phones.

Installation and fastening

When won­der­ing how to choose a 43-inch TV, you also need to fig­ure out where you are going to install it. Fix­a­tion on a hor­i­zon­tal sur­face depends on the com­plete stand, its design and rigid­i­ty. If it is flim­sy, it may cause the pan­el to tip over. A TV whose char­ac­ter­is­tics are declared accord­ing to the VESA stan­dard, then it can be hung on a ver­ti­cal ceil­ing struc­ture that can rotate in two planes. Oth­er­wise, the TV can only be mount­ed on a plane. By the way, when installing on a ver­ti­cal plane, you need to con­sid­er whether ports will be avail­able for con­nec­tion.
