The Insignia 55-inch Fire TV Edition television has just gone on sale for $349.99. Apart from a very short-lived doorbuster deal at Best Buy during Black Friday (that lasted about an hour), this is the new lowest price this TV has ever been. It has been $379.99 in the past, but this is the first time it has ever been this low at Amazon. This TV is the largest Fire TV Edition television currently available. It features 2160p 4K resolution, but don’t be fooled by the “HDR” in the title. That just means it can play HDR content, but it is not a true HDR television. Other Insignia and Toshiba Fire TV Edition television models are also currently on sale, such as the Insignia 43-inch for $249.99 or the Toshiba 50-inch for $299.99. While those match the lowest prices they have ever been, only this Insignia 55-inch model is at a price lower than it has ever been through a regular, non-limited, sale.
So, are any of the tv’s listed true HDR tv’s? The article says the insignia is not but does not mention the others.
Sorry, I should have mentioned that it applies to all models and sizes. There are no true HDR Fire TV Edition televisions.
Wow, that’s quite a drawback. HDR makes more of a difference than 4k resolutions, especially at these sizes. When I got my LG OLED a year ago I expected the resolution to be the big deal, but side by side with my previous tv it was the color that was by far the most striking part.
Wow, thanks for the reply. It should be illegal for them to advertise this way. I read through some of the reviews and it appears no one is aware the tv they bought is not a true HDR tv.
Part of the issue is that the definition of “HDR” is quite murky. It has become a meaningless term, so you have to dig up the raw specs of the TV. If it’s impossible to look up the brightness range of a TV, as it is for the Fire TV Edition televisions, it’s probably safe to say it’s not real HDR.
Is there a way to move the ON NOW ROW to the top just like pictured above on this Tv? Currently its like 4 rows down on my FIRE STICK. I have a FIRE RECAST and I get my local channels on my stick with it. Can you get in touch with AMAZON to see if this is possible with the NEXT update?
