While LG's OLED TVs produce the best picture quality we've ever tested, its LCD TVs have been among the worst. Maybe the 2017 improvements will help.
Panasonic has announced its first OLED television, the 4K TX-65CZ950, will be available in Europe starting in October.
The Samsung HU9000 has straight-up great picture quality, design and features, but the gratuitous curved screen adds very little to the viewing experience and way too much to the price.
Sony's KD-65X9005B produces really stunning picture quality, not just with UltraHD video, but also with Blu-rays and HD broadcasts. Its sound quality is top notch too thanks to its meaty speakers. The chunky design, 3D performance and smart TV system could be better, but despite these weaknesses, it's still another very impressive TV from Sony.
Sharp's new LC-60UQ10EN isn't a stand-out performer, but it offers a very big screen for a good price, and it produces pretty good picture quality with standard- and high-definition sources.
The Sony KD-65X9005 is an excellent TV that produces some of the best pictures we've seen on an LED set. It also has fantastic Full HD passive 3D support and speakers that really do produce excellent audio. It's very expensive though, and the benefits of its 4K resolution at this screen size are extremely minor. Plus its HDMI ports don’t currently support V2.0 of the HDMI standard, although an update is on the way.
Toshiba's 58L7365DB lacks finesse with standard-definition pictures and its smart TV system is sluggish. Its HD performance is on the whole quite impressive, however, and its price is attractive, so if you're looking for a big TV that's modestly priced, it's worth seeking out.
