    LG OLEDC7P

    Best picture quality, money no object

    OLED TVs stand head and shoulders above TVs that use LED LCD technology, and the C7 has the best picture we've ever tested. It's still very expensive but the price has come down a lot already this year -- and should drop even further.

    TCL P series Roku TV (2017)

    Best 55-inch non-OLED TV

    With truly excellent image quality and the best Smart TV system on the market, this TCL is a legitimate threat for best TV value of 2017. Unlike chief competitor Vizio, however, it's only available in a 55-inch size (for now).

    Vizio M-Series 2016

    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.

    Sony XBR-X930D series

    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.

    Sony XBR-A1E series

    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.

    Samsung QNQ7F series

    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.

    Vizio E series 2017 (60- to 80-inch)

    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 at least 60 inches.

    TCL S405 series Roku TV (2017)

    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.

    Vizio D series 2017 (D65-E0 and D55-E0)

    Best no-frills, picture-first big TV

    The E series above is a bit better thanks to HDR and its Chromecast-friendly feature set, but if you don't care about that, the D series will save you even more. Again, however, we can only recommend the largest sizes.
