It seems like everyone needs a massive TV screen these days. If you feel like you're ready to move up from aand you've been checking out TV prices, you might want to consider a 75-inch model, which is the most common next step above the ever-popular 65-inch size.
A lot of the best TVs we review at CNET come in a 75-inch (or even bigger) size, even those fancy OLED models. Technically they're 77-inch, but they also make this list of our picks for the best 75 inch TV.
If the choice for you comes down to an excellent 65-inch model or a 75-inch set that performs a bit worse -- but costs the about same -- my advice is to go big. More than a slight increase in color accuracy, image quality, viewing angle or any smart functionality, stepping up in TV screen size is the best use of your money.
The list below represents the best 75 inch TV options I've reviewed in CNET's test lab, where I compare them side-by-side to see which 75 inch TV is most worth buying. Here are my latest recommendations, with the following notes to keep in mind.
- Typically I've reviewed the 65-inch sizes in the series listed below, but the 75-inch versions are basically identical beyond screen size. Any variances are called out in the reviews.
- Looking for another size? Check out: 32-inch TVs, 43-inch TVs, 55-inch TVs and .

No TV I've ever tested offers this much picture quality for this little cash. Although it was released in early 2019 this 75-inch Ultra HD set is actually a member of the 2018 R617 series, not the newer 2019 R625 series (which doesn't include a 75-inch size... yet). No matter, this 4K Ultra HD TV is still a tremendous value and our favorite 75 inch TV for the price. Its well-implemented full-array local dimming helps it run circles around just about any other LED TV at this price and the Roku TV operating system is our hands-down favorite.

That TCL has an excellent picture quality, but if you're willing to pay a few hundred bucks more, the Vizio P Series Quantum X 4K UHD smart TV steps it up a notch. In our comparison this QLED TV with smart features outdid the 2019 TCL 6-Series with superior light output, which made HDR images look even better, and adds top-notch video processing to boot. And it costs still costs less than other top-of-the-line 75-inch smart TV models. Read the Vizio PX75-G1 review.
Speaking of top-of-the-line Ultra HD TV models, this TCL features Mini-LED, a technology that isn't found on any other TV currently available. The result is superb contrast and brightness that outdoes the Vizio PX viewing experience by a nose, although it doesn't quite hit OLED levels. This LED TV also features Dolby Vision HDR, Dolby Atmos and four HDMI ports for connecting to multiple devices. No surprise: It costs a lot less than a 77-inch OLED and a lot more than that Vizio.

What's that you say? You just want the best 75-inch (ish) high-end TV, period? Here you go. In my side-by-side tests the C9 OLED TV is the best 75 inch TV I've ever reviewed, barely beating the B9. In smaller sizes I prefer the B9 but at 77 inches they're both so expensive that I think you (lucky stiff) should just go ahead and spend another few hundred for this LG TV. Read the LG OLED77C9P review.
Roku is our favorite platform for streaming apps like Netflix, and it's even better baked into this 75 inch TV. Image quality on this TCL can't beat any of the models above -- its 4K UHD screen resolution and HDR compatibility don't do anything to help the picture -- but it's perfectly fine for most people, especially at this price. Read the TCL 75S425 review.
Samsung's QLED TVs are basically fancy LCDs -- don't confuse them with OLEDs. The Q70R 4K UHD TV has an excellent picture quality and plenty of Samsung design and smart TV features for a price that's relatively affordable, albeit not exactly budget. If you're not interested in a TCL or Vizio and don't want to splurge for an OLED TV, the Q70 is an excellent choice. And it's the only model on this list that comes in an 82-inch size too. Read the Samsung QN75Q70R review.
Other stuff to know about buying a new TV
I'm pretty sure you'd be happy with any one of the TVs above, but a new smart TV set can be a big investment, so maybe you're looking for a bit more information. Here's a quick and dirty list.
- In my opinion, bigger is better. Big TVs are cheaper than ever, and your money is best spent on larger screen size rather than a slight upgrade in picture quality.
- If you don't like the built-in smart TV system, you can always add a media streamer for more content. They're cheap and easy to use, and receive updates more frequently than most smart TVs. See the best media streamers here.
- Most TVs have built-in speakers that with terrible sound quality, so it's worthwhile to pair your new set with a sound bar or other speaker system. Good ones start at around $100. See the best sound bars here.
