Saving up for a new screen? To help you navigate the dozens of seemingly identical TV models from Samsung, LG, Vizio, TCL, and other manufacturers, we’ve watched hundreds of hours of content on them and picked a few of our favorites. Regardless what you’re looking for, we’ve got you covered, with everything from the absolute best TV you can buy, to our favorite budget TV—and a few excellent choices in between.
Unless labeled otherwise, every TV we link to is 55 inches. There are often larger and smaller sizes available on the retailer’s site, but this is a very good size for most living rooms. It’s worth noting that all of these models have 4K Ultra HD resolution because there aren’t a lot of good reasons to buy a standard HDTV anymore (nor many for sale).
