The Best 60-inch TVs of 2017

By Lee Neikirk

If you want the best 60-inch TV you can buy right now, we recommend the 60-inch Samsung KS8000 (available at Amazon). It's a beautiful set that's 4K and HDR-capable, meaning it won't need replacing for a good amount of time.

If you want to spend less or just prefer to shop around more, though you'll be glad to know that there's no shortage of affordable, high-quality options in this size class. But how do you choose? Well, that's where we come in.

We've been putting TVs through their paces nearly a decade, and test for qualities like contrast, color accuracy, bit-mapping, video processing, motion fidelity—the works. These are the best 60-inch TVs you can buy right now.

60-inch Samsung KS8000

Best Overall

Samsung's KS8000 series features one of the best 60-inch TVs you can buy. You're getting a super bright, colorful, and handsomely designed 4K/HDR smart TV that delivers one of the best High Dynamic Range experiences around.

The KS8000 series is available in 49, 55, 60, and 65-inch sizes, but you can get the 60-inch version for about $1,500, which is a stellar price for a TV this good. Check out our full review for more information.

60-inch Vizio M Series

Best Overall

Knock $500 off the KS8000 series and you get our value pick: the 60-inch Vizio M Series, which can be had for about $1,000.

We're big fans of Vizio's mid-range M Series for a wealth of reasons: great picture quality, solid features, and the price. You lose out on the more intense color and brightness boasted by the "best overall" Samsung KS8000, but at $500 less it boils down to how much you value HDR.

60-inch Samsung KU6300

The KU6300 was Samsung's entry-level 4K/UHD TV series for 2016, and the 60-inch version remains a very solid option for the price.

You're getting an HDR-capable 4K/UHD smart TV with a sleek, simple design for around $1,000 online. While the KU6300 is about on-par with the M Series price-wise, it's not as good of a choice for HDR specifically. Check out our full review for more information.

60-inch Vizio E Series

While lacking the HDR compatibility of the higher-end Vizio M Series, there's no denying the appeal of the entry-level E Series.

This 4K TV still delivers great picture quality for what you're paying, it just doesn't provide HDR compatibility like the other TVs here, and admittedly is a lot cheaper looking. But for $750, it's still an excellent value. Check out our full review for more information.

60-inch Vizio D Series

The first non-4K TV in the list, the 60-inch Vizio D Series is a bare bones and simple set that offers full-HD (1080p) resolution.

This one's great if you can find it down around $500-ish dollars. Any more and you're better off just getting the E Series. Check out our full review for more information.
