The 10 Best HDR TVs
Since the initial publication of this wiki in October of 2017, we've made 8 edits to this page. In TV terms, HDR — or High Dynamic Range — is a set's ability to render more detail in both the brightest and darkest portions of an image while preserving deep blacks and realistic contrast levels. The pictures on these models are often more immersive and cinematic, taking you deeper into your favorite films and television shows, and bringing you closer to the action of live sports.

This is one of those electronics categories with a pretty reliable annual turnover, so the options on our previous list all had to be swapped out for their newer models, each of which proved to be at least a slight improvement over last year's offerings. Currently, OLED is still the best tech on the market for picture quality, and the models offered by Sony and LG are outstanding. Samsung is a bit of a holdout in the field, focusing much of their R&D into their QLED system, which is fine, but which can't quite meet the high contrast and deep blacks of individually controlled pixels. In some cases, if the specs aren't up to snuff, it might even be smarter to grab a standard UHD Samsung like the Series 8 we have at number six, than to downgrade in size in pursuit of their Quantum Dot technology. Lower on our list you'll find a pair of simpler options by TCL and Toshiba for people on tight budgets that both have good streaming platforms built in.
