Special Honors

LG R9 Pushing the definition of slim to new boundaries, the LG R9 actually rolls up when not in use, and it's definitely the first TV to be able to do this. It uses the brand's iconic OLED technology, and when it comes out, it promises to be a ground-breaking device -- if you can get your hands on, and if you can afford it. lg.com

Editor's Notes

June 03, 2019:

If you're looking for the slimmest TV you can find, we've got you covered. Pretty much everything on our list right now is two inches thick or less at its thickest point. The only one that exceeds that is the Hisense H9e Plus, which is about 54 millimeters thick on the bottom. This is a small sacrifice considering it's the only one available for under $1000 and it's a 65-inch TV. Sony's X930E is a bit more costly, but it has the quality you'd expect from the Japanese entertainment giant.

If you're okay with dropping a huge chunk of change, the Hisense laser projector is an awesome device that comes with a relatively high-quality sound system. Alternately, the Samsung Q900 is an 8K display, and while there aren't many movies out that can take full advantage of it, you can trust that it's extremely future-proof. But the LG W9 takes home the title of "slimmest TV", as both commonly available models are only 4 and 6 millimeters thick, excluding the external box that does allt he processing and houses a pair of speakers. Sony's A9G is a bit cheaper than all three of those and leverages a number of advanced technologies to deliver a super-rich OLED picture as well.

Closer to most people's budgets, LG's C9 is their most popular OLED model, and one of the top TVs on the market today. But you simply can't ignore Samsung's thinnest models. The Q90 is their most recent flagship, and it's a truly excellent TV, although some feel that it's inferior to the Q9FN from the year before. That particular top-of-the-line release is the most balanced, as it's surprisingly affordable, and is exactly one inch thick, no matter where on the unit you measure. Finally, The Frame by Samsung is a very interesting choice that streamlines the entertainment experience by turning your living room into an art gallery. Guests and family members will be impressed when the priceless Rembrandt on your wall turns into The Avengers in 4K at the touch of a button.
