The most expensive Fire TV Smart TV ever has just been released

If you don’t count the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which cots over $100k and comes with a Fire TV rear-seat entertainment system, the single most expensive Fire TV anything has just been released in the form of the new Toshiba 75-inch M550 Series Fire TV Smart TV. Coming in at a retail price of $1,399.99, this is not only the most expensive TV running the Fire TV operating system ever released, but it’s also the largest and most full-featured, thanks to its use of a full-array local dimming LED backlight, which isn’t available on any other Fire TV Smart TV series.

Considering how often Fire TV Smart TVs go on sale, I’m certainly not saying you should run out and buy this at list price, but if you want the best TV with Fire TV built-in, this is it. The 55-inch version, which was released first a few weeks ago, has a retail price of $799.99 but is currently on sale for $549.99, so that gives you a rough idea of what you might be able to get this TV for when it inevitably goes on sale. This flagship Fire TV Smart TV from Toshiba was announced last week, along with a 65-inch version that is not yet available for purchase.

The Toshiba M550 Series TVs check more feature boxes than any other Fire TV Smart TVs. Those features include the aforementioned full-array local dimming backlight, hands-free voice control, 2160p resolution, and support for every HDR format you can think of including Dolby Vision, HDR10+, HDR10, and HLG. The only advanced feature this TV doesn’t have that can be found on another Fire TV Smart TV is the quantum dot QLED screen found on the Insignia F50 Series Fire TV Smart TVs. However, I’d easily choose a full-array backlight over a QLED screen, since both are still using LCD panels.

If massive screen size and hands-free control are the most attractive features, then the Fire TV 75″ Omni Series, on sale currently for a new all-time low of $899.99, will give you that for much less. The 65-inch and 75-inch Omni Series TVs do support Dolby Vision as well, but they use a direct-lit backlight, like all other Fire TV Smart TV models, so dark scenes won’t look as good as they will on the Toshiba TV.

    How many GB or storage? Same 5GB at most after all the Amazon BS hardware/software?

    Wonder how well these new Sets will review in testing.

    Hope the CPU & RAM in newer FTV TV sets have improved. I have one from 2 years ago & it’s sluggish as heck.

    Does anyone know if these will support home theater group with echo studios? I just ordered one of these and after some searching see that the other toshiba models don’t support groups. A big reason for buying this was to use my studios with other inputs. If this doesn’t work I’d be better off buying a none fire os tv.
