    Save your money and buy a better 1080p one. Unless you're going to sit 3ft away from the TV then 4K is a complete and utter waste of time on a 43 inch TV because you'll not notice the difference over 1080p. In fact for the majority of people, given the UK average viewing distance of 8ft they're throwing away their money getting any 4K TV smaller than 65 inches because the occular arc of the human eye means that it cannot resolve that resolution at that distance.

    perhaps a better question is whats the best TV for £400

    There is more than just pure resolution to factor into the choice.

    A lot of the development of the stuff around the panel is now devoted to 4k is moving forward. while the 1080p TV are standing still.

    UI, smartness, Look, blacks, brightness, reflections, connectivity, scaling engines, sound.......

    To remove 4k from the choices because you cannot benefit from the resolution is not the smart choice, add 1080p sets to the list is.


    Anyone can tell you your wasting your money on 4k but unless they come up with a better tv for the money for you to consider its a fairly hollow suggestion.
    here is one better, maybe not.

    Have a look around for LG sets they seem to pack in a lot for your money and the webos3 supports a lots of smartness.

    something like this may creep under £400

    you could also look at something cheaper if you may want to be upgrading later.

    unless super critical of your picture focus on the features you really need/want first.

    It is at the budget end of the market which £400 is. To do 4k at £400 they're cutting back on costs and that is usually in panel speed, backlight uniformity, viewing angles, contrast ratio, image handling or all of the above.

    You pays your money and takes your chances.
    If you are on a budget, buy the best TV you can for the money. No rush for 4K a good HD TV will look better than a cheap 4K, or, take more time to save up for a decent 4K set......
