Best TV for the price
No TV we've ever tested offers this much picture quality for this little cash, and its Roku TV operating system is our hands-down favorite. The TCL 6 series wins the 2018 TV value race at 55- and 65-inches.
The king of 2018 TVs, for now
In our comparison tests this TV beat the 2017 OLED TVs, but just barely. And the differences aren't worth the sky-high price. But when the C8 gets cheaper later in the year, it will likely earn the crown.
Best TV if you have money to burn
With basically the same picture quality as the C7 OLED TV above, The Sony A1E only makes sense for the few lucky TV shoppers who really like its styling, the Sony name, and have an extra grand or so to spend.
Best and brightest non-OLED picture
With searing light output and superb local dimming performance, the Samsung Q8F delivers awesome image quality in light and dark rooms alike, as well as potent HDR. And for videophiles afraid of OLED burn-in, it's a great choice.
Best picture for the money at 75 inches
The Vizio P-Series isn't worth the extra money over the TCL 6 series and Vizio's own M-Series at the 55- and 65-inch size. But if you want a wall-busting 75-inch set with an excellent image, it's our favorite of the year.
Best 2018 alternative to TCL and Vizio
Sony's most affordable entry in the full-array local dimming race can't match the value of those brands, but it does cost less than the Samsung Q8 and offers almost the same level of style and brand cachet.
Best budget TV picture quality
All of the TVs listed above this one have better picture quality...and they all cost more too. But when it comes to genuinely cheap televisions, nothing outperforms the Vizio E.
Best built-in smart TV system
Roku is our favorite platform for streaming apps like Netflix, and it's even better baked into the TV. Image quality on this 4K TCL won't blow you away, but it's perfectly fine for most, especially at this price.
