Best 4K UHD TVs

By Staff

Whether you feel like you need it or not, 4K resolution is the wave of the future when it comes to TVs. And while the latest standard in picture quality hasn't quite saturated the market just yet, it never hurts to future-proof your living room.

But tomorrow's TVs don't come cheap—at least, not if you want the best of the best. Until Ultra-HD resolution becomes the new standard, you'll have to invest a little extra cash if you want to experience a cinema-quality picture in the comfort of your own home.

Without further ado, these are our picks for the best 4K/UHD TVs you can buy today. If you want to know more about a particular model, click through to read our full, lab-tested review.

While it may not have quite the same fancy design as the LG's flagship G6 "Signature" series, the E6 is essentially its equal in terms of picture quality, making the svelte design and webOS 3.0 platform feel like icing on the cake. It's still not a cheap option at $5,999, but it's easily one of the best TVs we've ever tested, bested only by its slightly more posh big brother. If you've got the clams, the E6 is a sure thing.

Samsung UN65KS9800

The KS9800 isn't attempting to master your home theater—it's here to say you don't even need it. This TV is so beautifully bright and colorful (without detail loss or clipping, a key point), it can fight off any and all incoming ambient light to present a detail-rich picture no matter the environment. If you want to really see the difference between HDR and SDR, this is the TV to buy.

At $2,500 for the 55-inch and $4,000 for the 65-inch, the LG B6 series isn't going to fly off the shelves at Wal-Mart, but it's still way more affordable than any OLED before. If you've been pining for a flat, not-insanely-expensive-and-frilly OLED that deftly avoids the issues that plagued the fledgling tech a few years ago, the LG B6 series is it.

Vizio RS65-B2

As the first "Dolby Vizion" certified TV on the market, the Reference Series embodies a new kind of viewing experience, albeit a pricy one, and makes me wonder why we've put up with standard dynamic range as long as we have. The blazing brightness, unyielding color, and brawny craftsmanship here is unlike anything I've seen before. It screams "witness me," but you really have to witness it in person to believe it.

Samsung UN55KS8000

Samsung's KS8000 is an outstanding option if you're looking for blazing bright, colorful HDR performance and don't mind giving up the advantages of full-array local dimming. While its edge-lit backlighting occasionally creates shadow tone aberrations, it's an otherwise stellar performer dressed in a sleek silver suit and polished to a sheen.
