If you don't care about cost and just want the best picture, the C9 is the way to go. Its video processing, HDR and gaming input lag barely beat C8 and B8 below, but all three were close enough to earn a "10" in image quality.
In our comparison of all three OLEDs, this B8 fell ever-so-short of the C9 and C8 above, to the extent that we don't think either one is the extra money. Each one can 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.
Aside from the TCL above, no TV offers this much picture for this little cash. Vizio's affordable 2019 M is high-performance and well-equipped, but make sure you're getting the M8, not the M7.
The Q70 is the cheapest 2019 Samsung with full-array local dimming, delivering excellent contrast and better processing than the TCL or Vizio above. Both of those did a bit better in our tests overall, but neither has Samsung's brand cachet.
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.
