TCL Roku Smart LED TV
The TCL 32S327 features a pleasant design, a 32-inch 1080p LED display panel, and a built-in Roku streaming player. The latter allows the TV to stream content from popular services such as Amazon, HBO, Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and ESPN. The TCL 32S327 can play media files from a USB stick, too, as well as allow users to purchase new movies directly from the device since it has Wi-Fi connectivity.
This is a solid pick that not only offers a Full HD picture, but also runs one of the smartest platforms in the business. It packs three HDMI jacks, when most other TVs in the same price range only have two. If you want to go a tad larger, TCL makes a 40-inch model, too! Or if you don’t have much room to spare, the manufacturer even sells a 720p 28-inch model.
Toshiba Fire TV Edition
This small smart TV from Toshiba was developed in collaboration with Amazon. It runs a full-fledged version of FireOS, so you have access to over 15,000 channels and apps without the extra expense of a streaming box. We prefer the Roku platform over Amazon’s, but if you’re on a budget, the Toshiba Fire TV is a little bit cheaper.
The television’s remote control has Amazon’s voice assistant, Alexa, built right in. This means you can control TV playback, use smart home devices, launch apps, search for shows, play music, and switch inputs all with your voice. Plus, it’s equipped with three HDMI ports, a USB port, an optical output, an Ethernet jack, and a cable output. If you don’t want a smart TV, we recommend the TCL 32D100 for those on a budget.
Samsung The Frame Smart TV
The Frame is a fresh new take on a high-end 4K TV by Samsung, which doubles as a gorgeous art exhibition when you’re not watching your favorite shows. When in art mode, the TV can display 100 gorgeous free works of art, as well as your personal photos.
As its name suggests, the TV looks like a frame when mounted on the wall. Users also have the option to change the TV’s wood frame to better match their home decor. The Frame also comes bundled with Samsung’s brand-new, no-gap wall mount, so it sits flush against your wall.
When it comes to picture quality, the Frame features a 4K resolution so it’s much more vivid than most small televisions. However, the Frame boasts a 43-inch screen so it’s also much larger than every other option in our roundup. Regardless, if you want a unique television that is unlike any other, you can’t go wrong with the Frame.
Samsung 40NU7100 Smart TV
This option from Samsung is one of the most affordable 4K TVs the manufacturer currently offers. It has a good contrast ratio and a low input lag, and it lets you watch stunning high dynamic range content. It’s equipped with three HDMI ports and two USB jacks, and it runs Samsung’s Tizen Smart TV platform so you can download and stream all your favorite shows from numerous apps.
We think its 40-inch size is the perfect balance between being small enough for most setups, but large enough to experience what 4K content has to offer.
LG 32LK610BPUA 32-Inch 720p Smart LED TV
The LG 32LK610BPUA features an eye-pleasing design with small bezels, three HDMI ports, and a 32-inch 720p LED display panel with solid image quality and support for active HDR. This LG unit’s speakers dish out an impressive “virtual surround sound” that’s detailed and lifelike.
Plus, it runs the manufacturer’s webOS smart TV platform. The latter supports all major streaming services, including Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, HBO, and YouTube, among others. If you want to save some money, consider the 32LK540BPUA instead, which has one fewer HDMI port.
Samsung UN32N5300AFXZA 32-Inch 1080p Smart LED TV
Samsung’s UN32N5300AFXZA is a premium small smart TV with a 32-inch 1080p LED display that offers a much more vibrant and detailed picture compared to other models. Our only complaint is that it has just two HDMI ports. Others in its price range offer at least three ports.
On the plus side, the TV has Wi-Fi connectivity, which allows it to stream video or music from today’s popular services, including Netflix, Amazon, and Spotify.
Sony KDL32W600D 32-Inch HD Smart TV
The KDL32W600D by Sony has a 32-inch LED panel with a 720p HD resolution. Considering this option is from 2016, it’s obvious that Sony hasn’t focused its many resources on the small TV market. Regardless, the device still supports major streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube. You can also play content from a USB driver or cast it from your smartphone.
