Great TV, but bad remote
The Vizio P-Series Quantum gets its name from the quantum dots it uses to achieve a wider color gamut. It has double the brightness of a regular Vizio P-Series model.
The only knocks against it are the clunky remote, and its slow-to-respond SmartCast system. And unlike the other TVs in this list, it's not an OLED, which you may want to start considering at this price point.
LG B8 OLED 65-inch (2018)
LG B8: The best high-end TV value
While the more-expensive LG C8 has better image quality thanks to its newer video processor, the B8 series is almost as good (and much cheaper). And though LG's WebOS interface is snappy, you're likely better off connecting your own smart TV device such as the Apple TV 4K, which supports Dolby Vision.
Samsung Q8 Series 75-inch (2018)
Though its picture is not as good as that of an OLED TV, the Samsung Q8 has, per David Katzmaier, "excellent image quality, with deep black levels, prodigious brightness, accurate color, superb video processing and powerful high dynamic range performance."
Samsung Q8: Décor-friendly design
The Samsung Q8 has sleek and modern styling, plus a clean cable solution to reduce the appearance of clutter. The TV also has an ambient mode to better blend in with your décor when not in use.
LG C8 OLED 65-inch (2018)
The best-performing TV that CNET has tested as of May 2018, the LG C8 features slightly improved screen uniformity and image quality over the less-expensive B8 series. It's not as bright as some competing LED TVs, though.
LG C8: Ridiculously thin
We absolutely love how razor-thin the LG C8 is, measuring just 1.75 inches deep at its most bulky point. Its swooping, large stand leaves something to be desired, though that's not a problem if you mount this TV on your wall.
Vizio P-Series 75-inch (2018)
While the Vizio P-Series may not be as stylish as the Samsung Q8, according to Katzmaier, it has "excellent overall image quality, with exceedingly deep black levels, plenty of brightness, rich contrast and superb video processing anchored by a true 120Hz panel."
You can buy the 75-inch model at Walmart for $1,998.00.
Vizio P-Series: Our favorite 75-inch TV of 2018
"The P-Series is still a great step-up choice if you don't want to pay extra for an 'S' brand," Katzmaier noted. You won't get OLED quality, but you do get a budget-friendly TV with 120 dimming zones.
Sony XBR-X900F 75-inch
This Sony Bravia has excellent image quality, with deep black levels, accurate color, solid video processing and very good high dynamic range performance.
Though it was expensive when it first came out, the price has since dropped to $2,798.00 on Amazon.
Samsung Q9 Series 65-inch (2018)
A step up in quality (and price) from the Q8, the Samsung Q9 "has the best overall picture quality of any non-OLED TV I've reviewed, with exceedingly bright highlights, inky black levels with minimal blooming and best-in-class off-angle and bright-room performance," according to CNET's David Katzmaier.
You can find the Samsung Q9 at Amazon for $2,997.99.
Samsung Q9: Sumptuous picture quality in designer garb
One of the best features of the Samsung Q9 is the One Connect, an optical-cable-connected box separate from the TV that houses all the Q9's connections, maintaining a sleek, mess-free look.
