65-inch LG C7

Best Overall

The LG C7 is one of the company's 2017 4K/HDR OLED TVs, and just like last year, it's one of the best-looking 65-inch TVs you can buy. Equipped with a sleek design, the friendly and intuitive LG webOS platform, and the amazing picture quality of OLED TVs, this is the 55-inch TV to buy if you're looking for the best of the best.

Not only does this 2017 OLED deliver 4K resolution and incredible contrast/color performance, but it's equipped to make both HDR10 and Dolby Vision content—the two flavors of HDR—look very, very good. At a little under $3,000, it's pricy, but you do get what you pay for. Read the full review.

65-inch Vizio P Series

65-inch Vizio P Series

Best Value

Vizio's P Series continues to deliver some of the best value in home theater display technology in 2017. The 65-inch P Series is available for around $1,500 online—basically half what you're paying for high-end OLED and "QLED" TVs.

However, at that price you still get a commendably performing 4K TV that delivers terrific HDR10 and Dolby Vision playback, a durable and attractive design aesthetic, and simple smart features for way less than you'd normally pay. Read the full review.

65-inch LG B7

65-inch LG B7

The B7 is one step down from LG's illustrious C7 series, but overall, they're basically the same TV. We extensively tested both, and found that while the B7 isn't quite as fancy as the C7, you're paying less and really only getting small cosmetic differences.

From a picture quality standpoint, the B7 still delivers amazing contrast, great color, 4K resolution, and support for HDR10 and Dolby Vision playback, just like the C7. Of course, it's also terribly expensive, just like its big brother. Read the full review.

65-inch Samsung Q9

65-inch Samsung Q9

The Q9 series is Samsung's best-of-the-best, flagship "QLED" TV for 2017, and the 65-inch version is simply incredible. While Samsung's QLED TVs don't achieve the same inky black levels as their OLED competition, the Q9 is by far the brightest and most colorful LED TV I've seen.

While it'll fetch a high price, we imagine any buyer would be pretty blown away by this handsome TV's blisteringly bright and beautiful picture quality. Especially for HDR, the Q9 doesn't have a lot of competition. Read the full review.

65-inch Samsung Q7F

65-inch Samsung Q7F

Another of Samsung's QLED models, the Q7F stands out for being a good bit more affordable than the Q9 flagship, while still delivering the same very impressive peak brightness and color saturation bolstered by the "quantum dots" that give the QLED TVs their namesake.

It's still pretty pricy, but you're getting very close to flagship-level performance and some very awesome 4K/HDR picture quality for about $1,000 less than the Q9 series. Read the full review.

65-inch Samsung MU9000

65-inch Samsung MU9000

The MU9000 is Samsung's top-of-the-line non-QLED TV for 2017. The 65-inch model is a bit expensive, but performs very well, delivering the same posh features and sleek design as the higher-end QLED models.

You won't get the same level of brightness and color here, but 90% of viewers will still be blown away by this TV. Its 4K/HDR performance is admirable, and it's a lot more affordable. Read the full review.

65-inch Samsung MU8000

65-inch Samsung MU8000

One step down from the MU9000, you get Samsung's MU8000 series. The MU8000 (flat) or MU8500 (curved) TVs both offer 4K resolution, HDR support and playback, handsome designs, and easy-to-use smart features for a few hundred dollars less than the MU9 TVs.

As you might expect, performance is a little worse here than the higher-end sets, but it's still very good for what you're paying, and is one of the best values in this price range. We don't recommend paying more for the curved MU8500 TVs unless you're just really into curved screens. Read the full review.

65-inch Vizio M Series

65-inch Vizio M Series

Vizio's M Series is one of the more affordable 65-inch options in 2017, retailing for right around $1,000 online. However, for that price you're still getting a solid 4K/HDR TV that delivers commendable picture quality and great extras.

Naturally, the M Series doesn't shine quite as bright and colorfully as the pricier HDR TVs on this list, but at the price it's bested in value only by Vizio's own P Series. Read the full review.

65-inch Vizio E Series

  • Best of Year 2017

65-inch Vizio E Series

Vizio's E Series is a step down from the M Series. The main takeaway here is how affordable this one is for a huge 65-inch TV—you can find it around $800 online—but for that price you're not just getting a humongous screen.

The E Series is also equipped with the latest in TV tech upgrades, such as 4K resolution, HDR support, svelte smart features, and a good range of AV connectivity. Read the full review.
