Vizio 75″ V-Series 4K TV: was $709 now $674 @ Best Buy
Despite being part of Vizio’s budget lineup, the V-Series offers a fair amount of features for its price. You get Dolby Vision/HDR10/HDR10 Plus/HLG support, Alexa/Apple Home Kit/Google Assistant compatibility, and three HDMI 2. 1 ports. In our Vizio V-Series TV review, we called it a solid TV value with just a few compromises.

Hisense 75″ U6H 4K ULED: was $799 now $699 @ Best Buy
Hisense’s U6H is an affordable TV that offers great performance. It uses local dimming on its backlit LCD to boost brightness and quantum dots to kick up the color. You also get support for Dolby Vision/Dolby Atmos. Gamers take note: There’s a Game Mode that supports a lower-end version of variable refresh rate (VRR), but you’re limited to a 60Hz panel.

Hisense 65″ U8H Mini LED 4K TV: was $999 now $899 @ Best Buy
Our pick for the best value TV of 2022 just got cheaper thanks to this epic deal at Amazon. The U8H makes Mini-LED more affordable thanks to its low price tag.

The LG G2 is one of the brightest OLED TVs we’ve tested. In our LG G2 OLED TV review, we called it the ultimate QD-OLED TV rival. It offers about 30% higher brightness than its predecessor and boasts new gaming features, AI-boosted sound quality, and support for just about every HDR format you can think of. LG also claims this panel prevents burn-in, though we haven’t put that to the test just yet. When it comes to performance, this TV is currently the king of OLED TVs. 

LG C3 55″ 4K OLED: was $1,899 now $1,596 @ Amazon
Released in 2023, the LG C3 is one of the best mid-tier OLED TVs you can buy.

The Samsung S95B is Samsung’s first OLED and the first to combine OLED with quantum dots, resulting in a QD-OLED TV that promises the best of both technologies: superior color, brightness, and contrast in a single package. In our Samsung S95B OLED 4K Smart TV review, we said it largely delivers on its promise though it doesn’t provide those perfect black levels of a pure OLED TV (especially if you’re in a room with minor ambient light). Nevertheless, it’s an amazing TV for movies, gaming, and everything in between.

Samsung 55″ S95C 4K OLED TV: was $2,499 now $2,297 @ Amazon
Samsung’s next-gen QD-OLED TV is not only slimmer than the previous-gen S95B, but it’s also brighter. In our Samsung S95C OLED review, we liked the TV’s One Connect Box for cable management and 144Hz refresh rate for PC gaming. The TV’s significant boosts to brightness also improved performance across all kinds of content and viewing environments. The Editor’s Choice TV is  great for movie fans, gamers, and everyone in between. It sports four  HDMI 2.1 ports, HDR10+/HLG support, and a 120Hz panel.
Price check: $2,299 @ Best Buy

We especially like the included Bravia Cam, which can be used to adjust color on the fly or for controlling the TV with gestures.

TV buying tips and how to find the best TV deals

  • Don’t buy a TV with less than 4K resolution. 4K is the standard these days, so unless you see a very cheap 720p or 1080p set, try to stick with 4K.
  • Likewise, don’t buy a TV without “smart” capabilities. This makes it easy to stream content from apps like Roku, Hulu, and Prime Video. If you don’t like the idea of owning a smart TV, you can always leave it disconnected from your network (which essentially strips all of its smart features). 
  • Look for HDR compatible sets. They offer more realistic colors and better contrast. There are 5 HDR formats, but the main ones you want are HDR10, HDR10+, HLG, and Dolby Vision. 
  • Avoid paying for extended warranties. New TVs include a 1-year warranty and your credit card company usually provides additional protection. 
  • Stay away from refurbished TVs (unless the savings are massive). The problem with refurbished TVs is that if your TV has more dents and scratches than you anticipated, return shipping is usually on you, and shipping a large TV can get expensive very quickly. 
  • Look for bargains on older sets: Many 2022 TVs are still on the market. Usually the differences aren’t that noticeable to the average buyer, so when possible stick to the previous year’s model. You’ll find cheaper TV deals that way.

1.

TCL 6-Series Roku TV (R655)

Best budget TV of 2023

Available Screen Sizes: 55, 65, 75, 85 inches | Screen Type: QLED | Refresh Rate: 120 Hz | HDMI ports: 4 HDMI, 1 USB | Size: 32.8 x 56.9 x 2.7 inches | Weight: 50.7 pounds

Terrific brightness levels

Strong gaming performance, features

Roku TV offers a huge app selection and easy interface

Improved Roku remote

Mediocre sound

Limited HDMI 2.1 ports

The TCL 6 Series Roku TV sits at the top of our list of the best budget TVs of 2023. In our testing, we found it offers superior brightness and gaming capabilities for less than the cost of competing premium TVs. We also like that it has the super-easy-to-use Roku TV interface.  

The TV’s outstanding color and brightness come from its use of both mini LED and QLED technologies combined with so-called “Contrast Control Zones” (aka dimming zones). That makes colors pop attractively and balance well with blacks in nearly all situations. For example, the crisp contrast between the azure skies and the parched landscapes that constitute so many of Top Gun: Maverick’s aerial chase and fight scenes came through beautifully.

In The Batman, where dark is more prominent still, the inky shades of the Caped Crusader’s costume were pointedly visible even against the disintegrating backdrop of Gotham City, while the rainy-fiery Penguin car chase maintained the maximum amount of what suffocating tension it has. 

Gamers will also be happy to know that the TV has an Auto Game Mode, which activates as soon as you fire up a game. We also measured the set’s input lag using a Leo Bodnar 4K Video Signal Lag Tester connected to one of the 4K144Hz HDMI ports. It measured lag at 10.1ms; we consider anything below 20ms good for gaming and anything at or below 10ms to be exceptional, so this marks the 65R655 as one of the best gaming TVs out there as well.

2. Roku Plus Series 4K QLED TV

Roku’s first QLED TV is a great bargain

Available Screen Sizes: 55, 65, 75 inches | Screen Type: QLED | Refresh Rate: 60 Hz | HDMI ports: 4 HDMI 2.0 | Size: 33.1 x 57 x 4 inches | Weight: 36.7 pounds

Excellent value

First-rate HDR color

Good sound

Solid Roku TV smart interface

So-so brightness

Only 60Hz refresh rate

No HDMI 2.1 ports

The Roku Plus Series 4K QLED TV is the streaming giant’s first foray into TVs after long focusing on software and set-top/plug-in devices. And what an entrance it is. In addition to delivering a ton of screen for its starting price of $499, these TVs also give you surprisingly good picture quality and sound, two things that are usually lackluster in budget sets.  

We also like that they don’t look cheap. A gray, metal bezel surrounds the screen on all sides, measuring less than an eighth-inch on the left, right, and top. There’s also a chrome Roku logo front-and-center.  

The TV uses quantum-dot LED technology to produce vivid colors and increased brightness. In our tests, we found that the TV lived up to Roku’s claims. Picture vibrancy does start fading as you move away from the center of the screen, but it took a fair distance for the display to look unbearable.

Toshiba 55-Inch 4K Fire TV Edition (Image credit: Toshiba)

3. Toshiba 55-Inch 4K Fire TV Edition

The most affordable TV with Amazon Alexa inside

Screen size: 55 inches | HDMI ports: 3 | Refresh rate: 60 Hz | HDR Support: HDR10 | Dimensions (without stand): 28.7 x 49.1 x 3.7 inches

Amazon’s Fire TV OS is easy to navigate

Built-in Alexa

HDR support

Aggressive advertising

Confusing app store

Mediocre picture and sound

The Toshiba C350 4K Fire TV Edition is one of Amazon’s budget smart TVs, which have one big selling point: Amazon’s Prime Video and Alexa voice controls are baked right in. In addition to Prime Video’s extensive catalogue of movies and shows, you’ve got one of the best voice assistants on the market as close as your remote. And it’s not some half-measure – the Alexa on your TV can do everything Alexa can do on the Amazon Echo, with skills for smart home control, looking up weather and restaurants and much more. All of this is built into the 55-inch Toshiba 4K TV, which sells for an affordable sub-$500 price.

The switch from last year’s Westinghouse models to Toshiba bring all sorts of improvements, like improved display quality, HDR support and a more refined user experience, but it’s held back by mediocre picture quality and middling audio. Edge-lit backlighting and limited HDR support just drive home the most frustrating thing about most of Amazon’s TV’s — no matter how good Amazon’s Fire TV is as a smart TV platform, the TV also has to stand  on its own merits.

In our tests, the C350 produces a good enough picture that you can enjoy what’s on screen without getting annoyed by quality issues. It’s bright enough to watch during the day and the set produces good color.

It offers about 30% higher brightness than its predecessor and boasts new gaming features, AI-boosted sound quality, and support for just about every HDR format you can think of. LG also claims this panel prevents burn-in, though we haven’t put that to the test just yet. When it comes to performance, this TV is currently the king of OLED TVs.

In our Samsung S95B OLED 4K Smart TV review, we said it largely delivers on its promise though it doesn’t provide those perfect black levels of a pure OLED TV (especially if you’re in a room with minor ambient light). Nevertheless, it’s an amazing TV for movies, gaming, and everything in between.

Samsung 55″ S95C 4K OLED TV: was $2,499 now $2,297 @ Amazon

The TV’s significant boosts to brightness also improved performance across all kinds of content and viewing environments. The Editor’s Choice TV is  great for movie fans, gamers, and everyone in between. It sports four  HDMI 2.1 ports, HDR10+/HLG support, and a 120Hz panel.

TV buying tips and how to find the best TV deals

  • Don’t buy a TV with less than 4K resolution. 4K is the standard these days, so unless you see a very cheap 720p or 1080p set, try to stick with 4K.
  • Likewise, don’t buy a TV without “smart” capabilities. This makes it easy to stream content from apps like Roku, Hulu, and Prime Video. If you don’t like the idea of owning a smart TV, you can always leave it disconnected from your network (which essentially strips all of its smart features). 
  • Look for HDR compatible sets. They offer more realistic colors and better contrast. There are 5 HDR formats, but the main ones you want are HDR10, HDR10+, HLG, and Dolby Vision. 
  • Avoid paying for extended warranties. New TVs include a 1-year warranty and your credit card company usually provides additional protection. 
  • Stay away from refurbished TVs (unless the savings are massive). The problem with refurbished TVs is that if your TV has more dents and scratches than you anticipated, return shipping is usually on you, and shipping a large TV can get expensive very quickly. 
  • Look for bargains on older sets: Many 2022 TVs are still on the market. Usually the differences aren’t that noticeable to the average buyer, so when possible stick to the previous year’s model. You’ll find cheaper TV deals that way.

TCL 6-Series Roku TV (R655)

Best budget TV of 2023

Available Screen Sizes: 55, 65, 75, 85 inches | Screen Type: QLED | Refresh Rate: 120 Hz | HDMI ports: 4 HDMI, 1 USB | Size: 32.8 x 56.9 x 2.7 inches | Weight: 50.7 pounds

Terrific brightness levels

Strong gaming performance, features

Roku TV offers a huge app selection and easy interface

Improved Roku remote

Mediocre sound

Limited HDMI 2.1 ports

The TCL 6 Series Roku TV sits at the top of our list of the best budget TVs of 2023. In our testing, we found it offers superior brightness and gaming capabilities for less than the cost of competing premium TVs. We also like that it has the super-easy-to-use Roku TV interface.  

The TV’s outstanding color and brightness come from its use of both mini LED and QLED technologies combined with so-called “Contrast Control Zones” (aka dimming zones). That makes colors pop attractively and balance well with blacks in nearly all situations. For example, the crisp contrast between the azure skies and the parched landscapes that constitute so many of Top Gun: Maverick’s aerial chase and fight scenes came through beautifully.

In The Batman, where dark is more prominent still, the inky shades of the Caped Crusader’s costume were pointedly visible even against the disintegrating backdrop of Gotham City, while the rainy-fiery Penguin car chase maintained the maximum amount of what suffocating tension it has. 

Gamers will also be happy to know that the TV has an Auto Game Mode, which activates as soon as you fire up a game. We also measured the set’s input lag using a Leo Bodnar 4K Video Signal Lag Tester connected to one of the 4K144Hz HDMI ports. It measured lag at 10.1ms; we consider anything below 20ms good for gaming and anything at or below 10ms to be exceptional, so this marks the 65R655 as one of the best gaming TVs out there as well.

2. Roku Plus Series 4K QLED TV

Roku’s first QLED TV is a great bargain

Available Screen Sizes: 55, 65, 75 inches | Screen Type: QLED | Refresh Rate: 60 Hz | HDMI ports: 4 HDMI 2.0 | Size: 33.1 x 57 x 4 inches | Weight: 36.7 pounds

Excellent value

First-rate HDR color

Good sound

Solid Roku TV smart interface

So-so brightness

Only 60Hz refresh rate

No HDMI 2.1 ports

The Roku Plus Series 4K QLED TV is the streaming giant’s first foray into TVs after long focusing on software and set-top/plug-in devices. And what an entrance it is. In addition to delivering a ton of screen for its starting price of $499, these TVs also give you surprisingly good picture quality and sound, two things that are usually lackluster in budget sets.  

We also like that they don’t look cheap. A gray, metal bezel surrounds the screen on all sides, measuring less than an eighth-inch on the left, right, and top. There’s also a chrome Roku logo front-and-center.  

The TV uses quantum-dot LED technology to produce vivid colors and increased brightness. In our tests, we found that the TV lived up to Roku’s claims. Picture vibrancy does start fading as you move away from the center of the screen, but it took a fair distance for the display to look unbearable.

Toshiba 55-Inch 4K Fire TV Edition (Image credit: Toshiba)

3. Toshiba 55-Inch 4K Fire TV Edition

The most affordable TV with Amazon Alexa inside

Screen size: 55 inches | HDMI ports: 3 | Refresh rate: 60 Hz | HDR Support: HDR10 | Dimensions (without stand): 28.7 x 49.1 x 3.7 inches

Amazon’s Fire TV OS is easy to navigate

Built-in Alexa

HDR support

Aggressive advertising

Confusing app store

Mediocre picture and sound

The Toshiba C350 4K Fire TV Edition is one of Amazon’s budget smart TVs, which have one big selling point: Amazon’s Prime Video and Alexa voice controls are baked right in. In addition to Prime Video’s extensive catalogue of movies and shows, you’ve got one of the best voice assistants on the market as close as your remote. And it’s not some half-measure – the Alexa on your TV can do everything Alexa can do on the Amazon Echo, with skills for smart home control, looking up weather and restaurants and much more. All of this is built into the 55-inch Toshiba 4K TV, which sells for an affordable sub-$500 price.

The switch from last year’s Westinghouse models to Toshiba bring all sorts of improvements, like improved display quality, HDR support and a more refined user experience, but it’s held back by mediocre picture quality and middling audio. Edge-lit backlighting and limited HDR support just drive home the most frustrating thing about most of Amazon’s TV’s — no matter how good Amazon’s Fire TV is as a smart TV platform, the TV also has to stand  on its own merits.

In our tests, the C350 produces a good enough picture that you can enjoy what’s on screen without getting annoyed by quality issues. It’s bright enough to watch during the day and the set produces good color.

TVs with Ambilight function. Top of the Best Offers

Ambilight technology is not an absolute novelty in the market of high-tech products. But with the advent of many new TVs with this functionality, this solution has gained immense popularity. Modern Ambilight TVs emit a bright glow back onto the wall behind the TV. Thanks to this solution, the visual effect while watching TV is definitely better, more expressive and voluminous.

TV evolution: why OLED screens are so cool

Technologies

December 9, 2015

In my childhood, the very presence of a color TV in the family was considered prestigious. Now electronics stores are full of fancy widescreen panels that broadcast images of incredible quality. And among them there is a category of TVs, the picture on which looks especially beautiful and realistic. We’ll take a look at the evolution of modern TVs and explain why OLED screens are the best you can buy today and in the near future.

In the past, a color picture on a screen was a joy in itself. We did not notice the shortcomings of old TVs, because we did not see anything better. Everything changed with the advent of LCD-screens and plasma panels. The first LCDs did not have good image quality, and small viewing angles made the situation even worse. But these screens are flat, light and so compact!

In order not to miscalculate the purchase of a TV today, you need to know how the television industry will develop tomorrow. Do you think that 4K resolution is the maximum that technology is capable of? No. In general, resolution is an important, but not the only parameter. For many years, manufacturers competed in the quality race, until LCD technology itself hit the ceiling of its capabilities.

All LCD TVs these days are good, but not perfect. They boast both high resolution and a decent picture, but they lack one of the most important qualities – realism. Blinding sun that makes you close your eyes. A dark scene that causes disturbing goosebumps. The future of television lies in ultra-realistic color reproduction and unimaginable brightness ranges.

True black

For years, engineers have struggled to solve the problem of color fidelity. It seemed that maximum realism could be achieved by increasing the brightness and richness of the picture, but this did not work for black.

True black is not light, but its absence. The blackest objects for us are those that reflect the least light, which means that the TV screen, which claims to be a realistic image, must be able to not only shine brightly, but also not shine at all.

The peculiarity of the OLED screen is that each pixel in it works independently. To transmit black, the pixel is turned off, that is, it ceases to emit light. To understand the advantages of this technology, it is enough to remember what the night sky looks like in a forest and in a big city.

In the city we hardly see the stars, and the whole sky seems to be flooded with a monotonous dim light. This reflects the lights of lanterns, the light from the windows and other attributes of the metropolis. And only when you are far from civilization, you can enjoy the true beauty of the night sky. Every star, every celestial body is clearly visible and stands out against the background of the endless blackness of space.

City Lights – this is the same LCD backlight that reduces contrast and deprives the picture of many details.

It’s easier to feel the superiority of OLED if you put a regular LCD TV next to it for comparison. See the difference?

You might think that the need to accurately convey the black color is rare, but try to describe in one word such masterpieces of cinema as Interstellar, Star Wars, Nolan’s Batman (Christopher Nolan) and the work of Tim Burton (Tim Burton).
