Best 65-inch TVs

By Staff

If you're looking to up the "wow" factor in your living room, a 65-inch TV is a great place to start.

While 50- and 55-inch sizes are more popular, 65-inch TVs tend to represent the best-of-the-best from TV manufacturers each year. Smaller TVs don't deliver the same posh feature set or picture quality, and TVs 70 inches and up are difficult to make and priced to reflect that. Without a doubt, 65 inches is the sweet spot.

Of course, the best 65-inch TVs aren't cheap, but they're all heavy-hitting, flagship-level models that deliver stunning value and will be the pride and joy of your home theater. If you're looking to take your TV experience to the next level, these are the best right now.

10.0 score Tested by Experts


The new "Signature" Series G6 is LG's best OLED yet, and the best TV we've ever tested. Is it still an expensive, videophile-facing product? You know it. But considering the fancy extras, posh design, and peerless picture quality, we think the 65-inch G6 is priced fairly at $7,999. At $25,000, the 77-inch may be racing on an entirely different track, but you can still expect incredible performance.

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.

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 UN65JS8500

The JS8500 is a great performer, but at $3,000 it's pricier than competing models. However, much of what you're paying for is the JS8500's HDR compatibility, something 99% of today's content won't even show off. The "shirring" finish and sleek metal edges also push up the price. But if you're on the hunt for a UHD TV that's exceedingly future-proofed and super stylish, the JS8500 has very little competition.
