To truly appreciate 4K resolution you do need a pretty big screen, though you'd have to sit within 5 feet of one of these 70-inch (or thereabouts) TVs in order to make out the individual pixels. Available at a range of prices, these models offer moderate-to-great color reproduction, HDR content rendering, and a host of other features that can help you create the ultimate entertainment center.

LG W9 Wallpaper If you want people to say "wow" when they see your TV, check out the LG W9. It's literally only a few millimeters thick and utilizes some of the most advanced technology available today. It will, however, set you back several thousand dollars, so it's really not for everyone. lg.com

LG R9 The R9 is the first TV that rolls up when not in use and fits in a box that's just a few inches high. It may seem like a bit of a gimmick at first, but if you're dedicated to having an austere living space and want to avoid having a large appliance sitting idle on the wall, it's definitely worth a look. Just bring a bunch of money, because when it finally comes out, it will cost quite a bit. lg.com

Editor's Notes

June 05, 2019:

The most affordable 70-inch-class TVs are made by TCL. Their Roku software is commonly regarded as the most versatile when it comes to streaming. If you're willing to spend around $1000, you have a bunch of good options, though. The Sony and the Samsung RU8000 are both superb displays, though they do have drawbacks; the Sony doesn't have a great dynamic contrast range and the Samsung has pretty poor viewing angle. The Vizio is incredibly well-balanced, and is one of the best deals, though if you're okay with shelling out a bit more cash, the LG B8 is almost unbeatable. It's not too different from the brand's high-end models, and it costs well under $2000.

If you're looking for a top-of-the-line system, the C9 is a seriously fantastic display. But, boy, is it expensive. Somewhat more affordable is LG's NanoCell 9 series, represented here by the SM9500. An even better value, however, is Samsung's Q80, which leverages the brand's cutting-edge QLED panel to provide incredible color depth and accuracy.

And if you're able to make a relatively massive investment, LG does have two ultra-high-end releases in the W9 and R9, though they're each several thousand dollars and focused on relatively niche markets.
