In our comparison tests this TV beat the image quality of the 2017 OLED TVs and the 2018 B8, but just barely. We haven't tested every high-end TV yet, but among the ones we've seen, the C8 rules.
In our comparison this B8 fell ever-so-short of the C8 above, to the extent that we don't think the C8 is worth the extra money. But the two were so close they both deserve a "10" in picture quality, and both outperform any of the LCDs below.
If you have a really big TV budget and don't want an OLED for some reason, the Q9 is the next-best thing. It justifies its sky-high price with scads of features and innovative design, and its image quality is the best of any LCD we've tested.
Vizio's best TV ever is only available in one size, but if you can't swing the price for an OLED TV and still want an amazing picture, it should be first on your list. Its image is almost as good overall as the Q9 for way less money, and better than any...
With searing light output and superb local dimming performance, the Samsung Q8F delivers excellent image quality in light and dark rooms alike, as well as excellent HDR. It's not as good as the Vizio PQ, but it does come in more sizes including 75 inches.
Although a few TVs perform better, all cost more. Thanks to its effective local dimming and overall image quality, no TV we've ever tested offers this much picture for this little cash.
The Vizio P-Series isn't worth the extra money over the TCL 6 series and Vizio's own M-Series but it has its strengths, including slightly better overall image than the M-series and a higher 120Hz refresh rate than the 55- and 65-inch TCL 6.
Worse overall than the non-OLED sets above because it has slightly worse black levels, the X900F still deserves a nod for its picture accuracy with both HDR and SDR, before and after calibration.
Aside from the TCL above, no TV offers this much picture for this little cash. Vizio's affordable M is high-performance and well-equipped, and if you want a 70-inch size (which TCL doesn't offer), it's the best value this list.
