Best high-end TV value, for now
LG's OLED TVs stand head and shoulders above TVs that use LED LCD technology, with the best picture we've ever tested. And the B6 from 2016 is still our top pick for those who don't want to pay a lot more for the C7.
Best picture quality, money no object
The C7 is the best-performing TV we've ever tested, beating the B6 by a hair. At this point however it also costs a lot more, so it's not worth the price fro most buyers.
This M TV is a video value hit
Despite the inconvenience of its tablet-based menus and apps, the Vizio M series' excellent image quality and value make it a top choice for the price.
An even better picture, a bit more money
With a picture even better than the Vizio M series, and better than numerous other high-end sets from other TV makers, the P series appeals to less brand-conscious videophiles who can’t afford an OLED TV.
Best high-end 4K TV aside from OLED
f you're looking for something that's more expensive than a Vizio but not quite as pricey as an OLED, the excellent picture and slim styling of this Sony could be just the ticket.
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 TCL won't blow you away, but it's perfectly fine for the price.
Best TV if you have money to burn
With basically the same picture quality as the C7 OLED TV above, the even-more-expensive E7 only makes sense for the few lucky TV shoppers who really like its styling and sound bar, and have an extra grand or so to spend.
Best Smart TV system with 4K
Just like its non-4K cousin above, TCL's 4K Roku TV delivers a superior Smart TV experience for an affordable price. But picture quality isn't any better, despite all those extra pixels, so it's not as good of a value.
Best TV design
With an "invisible" wiring solution and super-sleek looks from the back and the front, Samsung's QLED TV takes the aesthetic crown. But its image quality, despite some strengths, isn't among the best we've seen.
Best budget TV picture quality
We like Roku TVs better thanks to their superior conveniences, Smart TV and feature set, but if you prioritize picture over that stuff and have a tight budget, get an E. Just make sure it's the right one.
