Best Big Screen TVs Under $1,000

By Reviewed.com Staff

It seems that with every passing year, TVs just get better and better. The hulking boxes of yesteryear have been replaced by sleek, thin models that offer smart connectivity and cutting-edge features like 4K resolution. But there's one thing that never goes out of style: a big honkin' screen.

Luckily, as TV tech continues to improve, the cost of making a big screen gets lower and lower. The result? Huge, high-end TVs that don't break the bank. And if you're willing to delay the jump to 4K, there are some serious big-screen bargains to be had.

Below you'll find the best big-screen TVs that we've tested that cost less than $1,000. Want to see if a particular model is right to you? Click through to the full review for all the details.

Samsung UN50KU6300

This isn't the TV to buy if you're looking for really impressive HDR performance. It's not very bright, and the added color saturation doesn't extend much beyond standard performance. However, for a slice of all the snazzy new 4K/HDR content out there, the KU6300 won't hold you back—and it looks great playing everything else.

TCL 55P607

TCL's P Series is looking to be one of the most valuable TVs of the year. While only the 55-inch (55P607) is available right now, there are 50- and 65-inch versions on the way. If they're anywhere near as promising as our 55-inch test sample, the whole series looks to be one of the most valuable and high-performance HDR/4K TV series on the market this year.

Vizio E55-E1

Despite the stacked resume—4K resolution, HDR compatibility, smart casting, and full-array LEDs—the 2017 E Series once again starts at very affordable prices, with the 50-inch debuting under $500. There are cheaper TVs, sure, but that's still a heck of a bargain. It's not perfect, though, and there are some sacrifices that may make a more expensive model a better choice for HDR fanatics.

Hisense 50H8C

This HDR option from Hisense is a study in trade-offs. You don't get the massive peak brightness of high-end HDR LED TVs, nor the perfect black levels of an HDR OLED. But for what it is, the H8 series is a perfectly good buy, providing future-proofed functionality and solid overall performance that will please almost everyone besides strict videophiles.

Hisense 40H4C1

You won't get stunning performance from this TV, but for the price—it starts at just $260 for the 40-inch model—there's not much to complain about. Obviously, it isn't nearly as bright and colorful as the year's super premium HDR TVs—and you're missing out on 4K resolution, too—but the picture's good enough at the end of the day, and most users are going to love the built-in Roku functions.
