This 43Q60B, has a very slim design with a profile of just 2.69 cm at the widest part and the frames around the screen are also very thin.

The stand is adjustable in height, which allows you to place a sound bar just below without blocking any of the image. And is that the sound to tell the truth, is quite poor due to such a slim design, which is why it becomes almost essential to add a soundbar to have a decent audio.

Unlike the larger models, the 43-inch version has a VA panel, which produces high contrast with deep blacks and good uniformity. However, its viewing angle is quite narrow. Compared to the Samsung Q60B, the screen’s uniformity is better thanks to its Direct LED backlighting, but it’s thicker. If you don’t mind the thickness, it will perform better in a dark room, with less chance of light leaking out.

The LG 43NANO75 NanoCell TV, uses nanoparticles to filter and enhance colors by eliminating impurities from RGB wave lengths. This means that only the purest and most accurate colours will be displayed on the screen. The result is a more vibrant and realistic picture that will bring the content you watch to life for you.

So if you’re looking for an economical TV with a wide range of features and decent picture quality, the NANO75 is a good alternative to the Samsung Q60B and Sony X80K we’ve just seen.

The 43PUS8507 is one of Philips’ best-selling models, and that’s because it combines image, Ambilight, design and smart features at a reasonable price.

The main feature of this TV is the Ambilight system, which consists of a series of LED bulbs that change colour and intensity depending on the image displayed on the screen. In this way, the light is projected onto the wall, creating a halo around the image, giving a more immersive experience and relaxing the eyes when watching in the dark.

The Android TV operating system is integrated into the Philips 43PUS8507 and you have access to more than 7000 apps.

Advantages Philips 43PUS8507
  • Ambilight System
  • Compatible with Dolby Vision and HDR 10+.

TCL 43S455

TCL S455 Roku TV
TCL S455 Roku TV

The TCL 4 S455 runs Roku’s latest smart interface, which is relatively unchanged from previous versions. For a starter TV, it’s pretty basic and lacks advanced features such as HDMI 2.1 bandwidth or variable refresh rate support. It also lacks advanced features like motion interpolation, and has very limited image and motion processing.

With its high contrast ratio and incredible black balance, it’s a good TV for watching movies in dark or moderately lit rooms. However, it’s not so good in a bright room or when your seats are spread out, due to its low brightness and narrow viewing angle.

For gaming, it lacks any advanced gaming features and while it supports HDR, it doesn’t deliver a very impressive HDR experience for gaming or film viewing, as it is not very bright and doesn’t display a wide gamut.

But we’ve included it in this list of best 43-inch TVs because of its extremely competitive price, ideal for use in a bedroom or second home. In this price range, it is unbeatable in our opinion.

Samsung 43LS03B The Frame

Samsung The Frame 43LS03B - Best 43 inch TVs 2023Samsung The Frame 43LS03B – Best 43-inch TVs 2023

This model has a number of features that make it very special and different from other models and is specifically designed to be hung on the wall.

It is a television that tries to simulate the appearance of a painting and for this reason it has a support that allows it to be left on the wall, the possibility of changing the frames and a brightness sensor to make it look as much like a painting as possible.

There are three options of frames in brown, teak and white that you can buy separately and easily put them since they are magnetized.

The connections are not on the TV itself, but in an external box called One Connect. From the One Connect box to the TV, there is only one cable that carries the picture and sound. This keeps the cables tidy and out of sight from the wall.

One Connect Samsung The Frame 43 inch

At the image level the Samsung The Frame is a QLED TV with Quantum Dots technology that offers a wide color palette and high contrast thanks to its VA panel. Thanks to the use of Quantum Dots, color is better maintained in brighter areas making colors more vibrant.

The most important new feature is that this new version now incorporates a matte screen that reduces reflections to a minimum. It is the least reflective screen on the market, so if you are going to watch it in very bright environments, this TV is perfect.

The Quantum Processor 4K image engine, makes use of artificial intelligence to display sharper images with more texture and detail. Scaling is very correct and content below 4K looks very good.

The 43-inch Samsung The Frame comes with the new Eco remote, which ditches batteries and instead carries an internal battery that charges via USB-C. In turn, it can be charged by sunlight or artificial light, by including a solar panel on the back that picks up outside light to charge the remote.

One of the facets that make The Frame different is its Art Mode. In it, it includes a series of free works of art and others of payment so that when you turn off the TV you see one of these works instead of having a black screen. You have as we say some free art pieces, but if you want some special, you may find it in the Art Store where through a subscription, you can access thousands of works of the most famous painters.

Also, instead of viewing one of the artworks included, you can also send your photos from your phone or via USB and save them in favorites so you do not have to enter each time.

Also, do not worry about the energy consumption, since the consumption in this Art Mode is minimal as the TV goes into saving mode and is practically the same as when it stays in standby mode.

In short, if you are looking for a TV that blends in perfectly with your home decor, the Samsung The Frame is the best choice in this size.

Advantages Samsung The Frame 43″
  • Anti-glare matte screen
  • Quantum Dot technology
  • Wall bracket included
  • Interchangeable frames
  • One Connect and single cable
Disadvantages Samsung The Frame 43″
