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).
Best mid-priced LED picture for the buck
No other TV offers this much picture for this little cash. Its value proposition is the best we've ever seen on a TV this high-performance and well-equipped, period. The free tablet is just icing on the cake.
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 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 at least 60 inches.
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.
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.
