Special Honors

LG W9 If you're willing to make a relatively huge investment, the W9 is one of the thinnest and most advanced displays on the market. It has all the high-end features of the company's more popular C9, but at just a few millimeters thick, it's in a class all of its own. lg.com

Editor's Notes

March 10, 2020:

There are more 65-inch TVs available than ever before and some of them are actually getting pretty affordable. The TCL 5-Series is commonly regarded as one of the best inexpensive models while the Hisense H8F looks surprisingly good from the up-and-coming, but still less well known manufacturer. If you want to spend just a bit more, you can get a very good quantum dot model in the TCL R625, which is an all-around great option although it does have some very minor issues with artifacting and dirty screen effect. Speaking of quantum dot technology, it's becoming widespread throughout the industry at a relatively quick pace. The Vizio P-Series Quantum is one example of this, and it's a great TV as long as you're not planning on using its built-in software. If you're using a home theater PC or separate streaming box, though, it's an excellent choice.

The LG SM9000 uses their proprietary NanoCell technology, which isn't exactly like quantum dots but is pretty similar and has a similar effect. The SM9000, it should be noted, is one of the few non-OLED TVs to offer full-spec HDMI 2.1 compatibility, so if you plan on getting a next-generation Sony or Microsoft console or are waiting for HDMI 2.1 graphics cards to come out, you should strongly consider that one. Of course, no discussion would be complete without mention of Sony, and the Sony X900F is a high-performing option in nearly every aspect despite its lack of advanced color filtration. In fact, it has very few faults aside from its subpar viewing angle.

Then there are the two most popular OLED televisions. These beautiful displays work on an entirely different principle than LCDs, and if you can afford one, you'll almost certainly be satisfied. Unlike LCDs, they can create essentially perfect blacks, and LG has gone out of their way to future-proof these so you won't have to turn around and buy another set in a year or two.
