Start with our picks for the best TVs below. These are the ones we recommend based on our testing and in-depth TV reviews.
The TCL S405 is a very popular entry level 4k LED TV. It features the excellent Roku Smart platform, which is very snappy and intuitive. It has a decent picture quality and a low input lag. We've found it to be a good performer for its price making it often a better value than competing models.
The TCL R617 is a good entry-level 4k LED TV with great picture quality and excellent low input lag. It is a versatile budget TV with great smart features. The viewing angle is quite narrow, and there are issues with gray uniformity. It is a great choice for budget 4k gaming.
We recommend the Sony X900E 4k TV for its great versatility and picture quality at a reasonable price. It's a mid to high-end TV, but it still performs close to TVs that are a lot more expensive. Its only real downside is the limited viewing angle, but this shouldn't be much of an issue for most buyers.
Our testing team subjects each product in our lab to uniform measurement procedures that evaluate all aspects of its performance, no matter the type of televisions. The results are then weighed in our system to reflect the impact they will have on your experience, based in your intended usage. The list below shows the impact different tests have on our recommendation scores by usage.
