Sceptre just released a 49-inch UHD 4K TV for $900, model U500, which offers a minimalistic look designed to maximize viewing space and eliminate clutter. The ultra-thin bezel is highlighted by a halo style steel base that exudes simplicity. The U500 Ultra HD TV comes equipped with 3 HDMI ports; HDCP 2.2, the next generation 4K copy protection; and MHL, which allows consumers to display their MHL enabled smartphone’s content to a larger screen while charging the device.
Sceptre’s U500 Ultra HD 4K TV showcases a 3840×2160 resolution screen that is 4 times sharper and clearer than traditional Full HD units, sharp and clear enough to see a blade of grass move on the football field. The ultra-precise pixels are complemented by SRS TruSurround HD, an industry leading sound technology for HDTVs that delivers immersive surround sound that encloses the audience regardless of their location in the room.
The U500 UHD TV is Energy Star V6.1 compliant, is neck and base detachable for easy moving and wall mounting, and features both true 4K and upscaling 4K viewing technology in case 4K content is not readily available. Upscaling 4K viewing is the process of upgrading lower resolution content by increasing it for enhanced viewing.
