Expert Score

Samsung UN65MU9000

While it might be a little pricier than most buyers would like, you can't argue with this TV's quality. Testing revealed a huge set of advantages, including excellent picture quality, a good smart platform experience, and very attractive design elements. Drawbacks are minimal, meaning only HDR-crazy buyers will want to up the ante and buy into the brighter, more colorful Samsung QLEDs.

Vizio P65-E1

There's no ifs, ands, or buts about it—the 2017 P Series is another smash hit from Vizio. While it stumbles in a few small places due to the eccentricities of the full-array/local dimming backlight type, it's pound-for-pound a great TV that delivers all the fancy new tech goodies, meaning it'll stay relevant for years thanks to 4K, HDR, and a handsome design that'll look great in any home.

Samsung UN65MU8000

Whether it's one of the flat MU8000s or one of the curved MU8500s, you can be sure you're getting a good-looking TV, both inside and out. The highly refined materials and stylistic polish featured on these TVs are lived up to by their reliable picture quality. Other than a couple small nitpicks, we couldn't be happier with how the MU8000/MU8500 TVs look.

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.
