Best 75-Inch TV for 2022

Wall-filling 75-inch LED LCD and 77-inch OLED TVs are more affordable than you might think.

Show More (2 items)

TV shoppers often wonder how big they should go. At CNET, our advice is to go as big as you can afford. If you have the space for it, a 75-inch TV is truly impressive. You are likely to be surprised that the cheapest ones cost less than $700. Several of the best 75-inch TVs for the money are featured on our list of the Best TVs for 2022, including some of those high-end OLED TVs. Technically they measure 77 inches, but they're still included. 

The list below represents the best TVs I've reviewed in CNET's test lab, where I compare them side by side to see which is most worth buying. I've actually reviewed the 65-inch sizes in the series listed below, but the 75-inch and 77-inch versions are basically identical beyond screen size. I update this list periodically and if I haven't reviewed the newest version yet, I'll include an "Outlook" section to give you a sense of what you're missing (or not).

No TV I've ever tested offers this much picture quality for as little cash. The TCL 6-Series has an excellent image, thanks to mini-LED tech and well-implemented full-array local dimming that helps it run circles around just about any other TV at this price. It's also a solid choice for gamers with a THX mode that combines low input lag and high contrast. As if that's not enough, the Roku TV operating system is our hands-down favorite.

This TV came out in 2020 but is still a current model and remains my top choice so far. TCL also sells an 8K version of the 6-Series, but I don't think it's worth the extra money, as well as a Google-powered version I have yet to review (although according to TCL, its image quality is the same as this Roku version).

Like: 
Excellent overall image quality
Superior brightness for the price
Great game mode performance
Roku smart TV is simple, capable
Don't like:
Some issues with low-light dimming

Key features:
Display technology: LED LCD (Mini-LED)
LED backlight: Full array with local dimming
Number of zones: 240
Resolution: 4K
Refresh rate: 120Hz
HDR compatible: HDR10 and Dolby Vision
Smart TV: Roku TV
Remote: Voice
HDMI support: 1440p/120Hz, VRR, eARC, ALLM

Outlook: TCL has yet to announce a successor to this TV.

With picture quality as good as any TV I've ever tested and a price that's not too crazy, the LG C1 OLED TV is still my go-to pick for people who prioritize picture and are willing to pay for it. It beats any non-OLED TV on this list, including the Samsung QN90A below, with its perfect black levels, unbeatable contrast and superb off-angle viewing. It also has the best gaming features, making it the perfect companion to an Xbox Series X or S, PlayStation 5 or both. 

I also reviewed the successor to the C1, the LG C2, and the two have essentially identical picture quality. The newer version brings a couple of minor improvements, including lighter weight and a couple new gaming modes. Since the 2021 C1 currently remains on sale for hundreds less than the 2022 C2, I recommend getting the C1 instead.

Like:
Better picture quality than any non-OLED TV
Superior contrast and off-angle image
Best-in-class gaming features
Sleek styling with ultrathin panel
Don't like:
Expensive

Key features:
Display technology: OLED
LED backlight: N/A
Resolution: 4K
Refresh rate: 120Hz
HDR compatibility: HDR10 and Dolby Vision
Smart TV: Web OS
Remote: Motion
HDMI 2.1 support: 4K/120Hz, VRR, eARC, ALLM

The C2 is the first 2022 TV we reviewed and it's superb, but right now the 2021 model is a better deal. We compared the C2 directly with last year's C1, side by side. In terms of picture quality, the two were basically identical, despite the fact that LG touts the new "Evo" panel on the C2. Real improvements include carbon-fiber construction for lighter weight -- the 77-inch version weighs just 54 pounds with its stand, versus 79 pounds for the 77-inch C1 -- as well as some additional tweaks to game mode and a new "always on" feature. Those enhancements aren't worth the price difference, so our advice is to buy a C1 now or wait until later this year, when the C1 sells out and the C2 gets a price cut.

Like:
Better picture quality than any non-OLED TV
Superior contrast and off-angle image
Best-in-class gaming features
Sleek styling with ultralight, thin panel
Don't Like:
Expensive
No major picture quality improvements over the C1 from 2021

Looking for a high-end TV with spectacular image quality, but don't want an OLED? The Samsung QN90B is your best bet. This TV uses QLED TV tech augmented by mini-LED for a brighter image than any OLED TV. The spectacular contrast of OLED still won out in our side-by-side tests, but the QN90B QLED screen comes closer than ever. 

Like:
Best non-OLED picture quality we've ever tested
Incredible brightness with minimal blooming
Stylish design, packed with features
Don't like:
Expensive
Slightly worse contrast, off-angle and uniformity than OLED

Key features:
Display technology: LED LCD (Mini-LED)
LED backlight: Full array with local dimming
Number of zones: Undisclosed
Resolution: 4K
Refresh rate: 120Hz
HDR compatible: HDR10 and HDR10+
Smart TV: Tizen
Remote: Voice
HDMI 2.1 support: 4K/120Hz, VRR, eARC, ALLM

In summer 2022 the older version of this TV, the QN90A, remains on sale for hundreds less. It's also an excellent performer but it's slightly dimmer than the QN90B. It also lacks some of the 2022 model's features, including the new game hub with cloud gaming.

Roku is our favorite platform for live TV streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video, and it's even better baked into the TV. This TCL 4-Series can't beat any of the models above on image quality -- its 4K resolution and HDR performance don't do much to help the picture -- but it's perfectly fine for most people, especially at this price. 

Note that TCL also makes a Google TV and an Android TV version of the 4-Series. We haven't reviewed them, but we expect similar picture quality to the Roku version.

Like:
Hard to beat the price
Easy-to-use Roku interface
Don't like:
Cheap-feeling remote
Only average performance
HDR doesn't look much better than SDR

Key features:
Display technology: LED LCD
LED backlight: Direct
Number of zones: N/A
Resolution: 4K
Refresh rate: 60Hz
HDR compatible: HDR10
Smart TV: Roku TV
Remote: Standard
HDMI support: ARC

Outlook: We haven't reviewed the latest version of this TV, the TCL 75S455, but it has similar specifications and we expect it to perform basically the same as this model.

With excellent picture quality, anchored by full-array local dimming and plenty of brightness to make HDR content shine, the X90J is Sony's answer to the TCL 6-Series and step-up Vizio models. This LED TV's sleek looks and the Google TV operating system score additional points, as does its next-gen console support -- including variable refresh rate (VRR), enabled by a software update in March 2022 -- and built-in NextGen TV tuner. This Sony TV is perfect for PS5 gaming and works with Alexa & Google Assistant. If you want an "S" brand, this is one of the best values we've tested.

Like:
Excellent image quality
Capable Google TV smart system
Solid connectivity
Subtle, understated design
Don't like:
More expensive than competing TVs with similar picture quality

Key features:
Display technology: LED LCD
LED backlight: Full array with local dimming
Number of zones: Undisclosed
Resolution: 4K
Refresh rate: 120Hz
HDR compatible: HDR10 and Dolby Vision
Smart TV: Google TV
Remote: Voice
HDMI 2.1 support: 4K/120Hz, VRR, eARC, ALLM

Outlook: The successor to the X90J is the X90K, currently priced around the same as this model. We haven't reviewed the new model yet, but its image quality specifications are largely similar to the 2021 version, so we don't expect many picture quality differences. Unlike the 2021 version, the new model ships with VRR enabled out of the box.

Samsung is the brand that sells more TVs than anyone, and one of its most popular is the Q60 series. Its sleek QLED screen design stands out compared with the other TVs on this list -- even though the ultrathin OLED models are sleeker -- and it offers better features, image quality and more sizes than models like the TCL 4-Series and Sony X80K. The TVs listed in this article are all superior values, but if you want a Samsung TV and can't afford the QN90A, this is a great choice.

Note that the 2021 version, the Q60A, is still on sale and can be cheaper than the Q60B. The newer version measured brighter in our tests, but if you want the best deal, stick with the Q60A if it's still available.

Like:
Sleek design and excellent remote
Bright image with solid contrast
Informative status screen for gaming
Don't like:
More expensive than competing TVs with better picture quality
Cluttered smart TV menus

Key features:
Display technology: LED LCD

Number of zones: N/A
Resolution: 4K
Refresh rate: 60Hz
HDR compatible: HDR10 and HDR10+
Smart TV: Tizen

75-inch TV FAQs

Is a 75-inch TV too big?

It depends on your room size, seating distance and personal taste. For a large living room or den, a 75-inch TV is generally excellent, but it's too big for smaller living rooms or most bedrooms. If you sit closer to the screen you don't need as large a TV for the best experience. For maximum theatrical impact, according to THX and SMPTE, you should be between 7.5 and 10 feet from a 75-inch screen, although many viewers will find it more comfortable to sit a bit further back than that. Every 75-inch TV has 4K resolution, and if you have 20/20 vision you can sit as close as about 4.5 feet from the screen and still not discern individual pixels. 

How wide is a 75-inch TV?

Most 75-inch TVs measure between 65 and 67 inches wide. Because the frames around newer TV screens are typically quite narrow, 75-inch TV widths don't vary much. Models with very slim frames are on the lower end -- the 75-inch Samsung QN90A measures 65.7 inches wide for example, while the slightly thicker-framed 75-inch TCL 4-Series is 66.1 inches wide. If you're not planning to wall-mount the TV, you generally want the piece of furniture supporting the TV to measure at least as wide as the TV itself, and preferably a few inches wider. Refer to the manufacturer's website for exact dimensions of a particular 75-inch or 77-inch TV.

How much does a 75-inch TV weigh?

A 75-inch TV weighs between 75 and 100 pounds with its stand, but this varies significantly depending on the type of TV. The TCL 4-Series 75-inch TV weighs 75 pounds with stand, for example, while the 75-inch Samsung QN90A weighs 98.8 pounds with stand. Removing the stand -- which often consists of a pair of little legs under the panel -- allows you to wall-mount the TV and reduces its weight (stands can weigh up to 20 pounds). Shipping weight (box, accessories, etc.) adds another 10 to 20 pounds. Refer to the manufacturer's website for exact weights of a particular 75-inch TV.
