JVC's monstrous 70-inch 4K UHD TV has just dropped to $ 520


70 inches of 4K TV quality for $ 520.


If you've been waiting for your time on a new TV, don't wait any longer: Walmart has an agreement that, at least on paper, seems frankly amazing. For a limited time, and while supplies last, the The 70-inch Joku Roku 4K UHD TV is on sale for $ 519.99. That's $ 10 less than it was just a week ago and an incredibly good price for a TV of this size.

That's 70 inches Soccer can be done for the season, but there is a lot of basketball on the way. (March Madness, anyone?) On the spec front, the JVC meets most of the important frames, including three HDMI ports. However, there is one area to consider: the TV has a maximum refresh rate of 60Hz. Some 4K TVs can do 120Hz, which can help reduce motion blur, something that usually has a lot in sports. Whether that matters or not is a personal call; read The truth about 4K TV update frequencies Learn more.

CNET has not reviewed this model, but around 40 Walmart buyers collectively rated this 4.3 stars out of 5. In my opinion, you have to throw a couple of the 1 star reviews; one because a client received a broken screen (which can occur with any television and has no relation to the television) and another because the client did not understand the nature of a Roku TV (which is that you need a Roku account to use it).

But this is the question of buying a TV in a real store: if you are not satisfied, you can remove it. You may need a large vehicle to do so, but it is certainly better than dealing with shipping.
