Want a stunning cinema experience and willing to pay for it? Get LG's 55-inch curved OLED TV, the 55EC9300, which offers the most gorgeous picture we've seen. Looking for a good budget screen for a kid's room or dorm room? You'll love the 32-inch Vizio M322i-B1 — which costs about a tenth as much as the LG.
In between is a wide range of sizes, prices and features. We fixed our gaze on roomfuls of TVs with all kinds of content — HD and 4K — to find the best model for whatever delights you: be it for game day, movie night or fragfest. We have pushed all the TVs' buttons, navigated their menus and run their smart TV apps. (For details on our evaluation methodology, see How We Test TVs.) Read on for our recommendations: which start at the top end and work their way down.
