    LG OLEDB6P series

    Best overall picture quality

    LG's "cheapest" 4K OLED TV delivers absolute black levels and infinite contrast, along with superb uniformity and off-angle viewing, and none of the blooming associated with local dimming LEDs. It's the gold standard for in-home images.

    Unless you have even more money to burn than the typical OLED TV shopper, you should choose the less expensive version of this TV.

    LG 55EG9100

    Best OLED TV for the money

    Are you noticing a pattern at the top of this list? LG's OLED wins the gold, silver and bronze of picture quality thanks to this 55-inch model that, unlike any of the LCDs below, only has 1080p resolution. No worries, it's still better.

  • Vizio P-Series 2016

    Best LED LCD picture quality

    It's close between this TV and the Samsung below, but the Vizio's better black levels and control of blooming, as well as its flat screen, help tip the scales in its favor. It's not as bright, but that won't matter for most viewers.

    Sony XBR-X930D series

    Best non-Vizio LCD picture quality

    If 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.
