What TV size are you looking for?

70” and larger TVs

Andrew's Take

theHUB's electronics writer

For the ultimate home theatre experience, Samsung’s 75″ 4K UHD Smart TV is my personal pick for the best 70” and larger TV. This ultra HD television has among the best high dynamic range (HDR) I’ve seen, giving you extremely realistic colours and contrasts.

I also really like the UHD processor that upscales content to 4K quality, giving new life to your Blu-rays or 1080p streaming content.

The TV syncs with your phone so you can watch videos or browse photos with your friends or family, a nice touch to liven up the holidays. And with Netflix and YouTube built-in, you can stream TV shows, movies, or a how-to video quickly and easily.

It also works with Samsung’s SmartThings app, letting you use your smartphone as a remote control. Talk about convenience!

What Customers Said

The Draw

Great price, beautiful color, nice design and easy setup. I liked this TV so much, I got a second one.

The Downside

The picture is great but the sound is only okay. If you have a sound system this is a good buy.

Why We Love It

  • Roku user interface has a simple layout and is easier to navigate than the Samsung 75" 4K TV.
  • Works with the Roku app for extra features like voice search and sharing content from your phone to the TV—a feature not found on the other 70” and higher models on our list.
  • It’s affordably priced for a TV of its size.

Things To Consider

  • 60 hz refresh rate is lower than the Samsung 75” TV (which has 120 hz), so you may see the occasional motion blur on fast-moving scenes like sports.
  • Not compatible with Google Assistant; if this is important you should consider the Samsung 75” TV.
  • Sound is average for a value-priced big-screen TV, so you may want to add a sound system.

Why We Love It

  • Huge screen size and high resolution for a true home-theatre experience—and the largest TV on our list.
  • Has built-in Wi-Fi that lets you access over 2,000 streaming channels, including movies, music and TV shows.
  • Numerous native apps built-in, like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Things To Consider

  • Unlike the Samsung 75” TV, this model is not compatible with Google Assistant.
  • The heaviest large-size TV on our list weighing over 97 lb, making wall-mounting more difficult.
  • The most expensive TV of our three top picks, so you’re paying extra for larger screen size.

60” to 65” TVs

Andrew's Take

theHUB's electronics writer

TCL is a brand I’ve been paying a lot of attention to recently given their reputation for quality TVs at affordable prices. One such example is their 65” 4-Series 4K TV, which contains must-have smart features like Wi-Fi connectivity and access to popular apps like Netflix and YouTube.

I’m particularly impressed this model includes HDR, upscaling and 120 hz refresh rate—all at a very good price.

What Customers Said

The Draw

The picture is amazing; crystal clear. Best TV I’ve ever owned. Definitely worth the money.

–Brinn, Walmart customer

The Downside

I went out and bought a Harmony remote since the TCL could not be found with my…satellite remote.

Why We Love It

  • Only TV on our list containing Quantum Dot technology, which enhances blacks and produces richer colours.
  • The TV is powered by Android (unlike the TCL 65” that uses Roku), so the interface is very intuitive if you’re familiar with the operating system.
  • Includes multiple outputs including composite video, audio, digital line-out and earphone. Also has two USB ports, compared to the TCL 65” that only has one.

Things To Consider

  • 60 hz refresh rate is lower than the LG 65” (that has 120 hz).
  • The TV is currently using an older version of Android operating system. Hopefully it gets updated soon.
  • Compatible with less streaming services than Roku TVs, like the TCL 65”.

Why We Love It

  • With its HDR and 120 hz refresh rate, this is an excellent all-around gaming and cinematic TV.
  • Its IPS 4K display gives you a wider viewing angle than the other 65” TVs on our list.
  • Upscaling and enhanced picture and quality with LG’s ThinQ AI technology—meaning your streaming services, DVDs and Blu-rays will look even better.

Things To Consider

  • Average quality built-in speakers, so you may want to consider also getting a soundbar or stereo system.
  • No Bluetooth audio output (but the Hisense 65” TV does.)
  • The LG WebOS user interface is not as intuitive as Roku or Android TVs.

50” to 59” TVs

Andrew's Take

theHUB's electronics writer

Considering the price and features, this LG 4K TV offers one of the best values on the market. For just under $600, you get a large 55” screen with an IPS display that gives you a nice, wide viewing angle. The size is versatile, too, so you could put the TV in your family room or bedroom.

You also get active HDR on this set, which is a new standard for picture quality and contrast. What’s convenient as well, the TV can connect to both Google Assistant and Alexa—giving you the flexibility to choose either of these popular smart home assistants.

Gamers also take note: the TruMotion 120 hz refresh rate and quad core processor offers a premium gaming experience.

What Customers Said

The Draw

I was blown away with the picture quality of this TV! It was very easy to set up, just a few minutes and I had it set up and ready to enjoy!

–Candicer4, Walmart customer

The Downside

The remote is not user friendly and hard to see – it would be nice if the buttons lit up.

Why We Love It

  • This TV has Samsung’s proprietary PurColour that displays more shades of colours than standard 4K TVs.
  • Easily connects to your Samsung phone or tablet for streaming and viewing photos (great if you have other Samsung devices).
  • Apple AirPlay 2 is built-in, so you can share family photos or play your favourite music right on the TV.

Things To Consider

  • Screen glare on this TV can be an issue in bright spaces.
  • Best viewed from directly in front of the TV. For a wider angle, consider the LG 55” 4K TV.
  • The TV has superior dimming and black levels than the LG 55” TV, so it’s better for movies and television.

Why We Love It

  • Incredible value compared to the other 50” to 59” TVs we chose.
  • Has four HDMI inputs (compared to three on 55” Samsung and LG models) giving you greater flexibility to connect your devices.
  • Includes a built-in digital tuner to view over-the-air local TV stations—a feature not found on the Samsung and LG TVs.

Things To Consider

  • Its 60 hz refresh rate is lowest on our 50” to 59” TV recommendations.
  • Sound quality is average so you may want to consider a soundbar in large family rooms or condos.
  • At 34 lbs, the TV is lighter than the 55” Samsung TV, but slightly heavier than the ultra-light LG 55” TV.

40” to 49” TVs

Andrew's Take

theHUB's electronics writer

Perfect for your kid’s room, as a monitor, or in your cottage, the LG 43″ 4K UHD LED Smart TV has very few competitors that can offer the same quality at this size or price.

Similar to the LG 55” version of this TV, the 43” Smart TV has amazing colour and contrast with HDR and excellent wide-angle viewing.

I also really like the built-in Google Assistant and Alexa, which gives you the convenience of controlling the TV with your voice.

–Candicer4, Walmart customer

The Downside

Only issue for me is, if you’re watching something that displays with bars at the top and bottom of the picture they aren’t black they’re a smoky looking grey and a little bit distracting.

Why We Love It

  • Faster response time with lower input lag than the Magnavox 40”, so it’s better for gaming.
  • Has an upscaling engine to make your sub-4K TV shows and movies look even better.
  • One of the best smart TVs for this size with a great price.

Things To Consider

  • No Ethernet port for wired internet. (The LG 43” TV does have Ethernet connectivity.)
  • Only 2 HDMI and 1 USB inputs, which is one less for each compared to the LG 43” TV. You may want to consider getting an HDMI switch to add more ports to this TV.
  • Colour gamut is not as robust as the larger size Samsung TVs.

Why We Love It

  • Has a quality 1080p display and a low price—making this TV a great value.
  • Unlike the Samsung 43” TV, this Magnavox model has a headphone port for gaming or movies.
  • Great as an affordable large-screen monitor.

Things To Consider

  • This 1080p HDTV has lower resolution than the LG 43” 4K TV, but cost one third less.
  • No HDR and not a Smart TV. (You could get a streaming device to turn this into a Smart TV.)
  • No internet or smart assistant support, so you won’t be able to watch YouTube or steam Netflix without buying a streaming media device.

30” to 39” TVs

Andrew's Take

theHUB's electronics writer

My top pick in the 30” to 39” range is RCA’s 32” Roku Smart TV. This very affordable TV packs a surprising number of features, starting with its easy-to-use menu system that streams popular services like Apple TV, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and the free Tubi TV.

It also has a nice range of inputs, including three HDMI ports, composite audio/video and one USB.

Thanks to its size, you can place this TV almost anywhere, from your kitchen counter to a small living room, or your kid’s bedroom.

What Customers Said

The Draw

Easy set-up (Netflix up in less than 3 minutes) great picture quality, even the best and simplest little remote I’ve had in a long time.

–Markus14, Walmart customer

The Downside

I am considering adding an external sound system, but on board sound is still very good.

Why We Love It

  • Costs more than the RCA model, but has better colour and contrast.
  • Its light 5.8 lb and compact size makes it perfect for your bedroom, garage or cottage.
  • Has two HDMI ports (one less than the RCA model) and one USB.

Things To Consider

  • Not a smart TV and offers no internet connectivity. If you’re looking for these features, consider the RCA 32” Roku Smart TV.
  • Viewing angle and brightness are average for this TV size. May not be a good choice for larger rooms.
  • This TV has feet on either end, which typically requires more space. For a more space-saving alternative, consider the Sanyo 32” that has a single stand base.

Why We Love It

  • This is a 60 hz TV but it features Sanyo’s Brilliant Motion Rate 120 technology to improve motion clarity. This makes it a good set for sports or movie fans.
  • Built-in ATSC / NTSC tuner to watch digital broadcasts, including HDTV programs.
  • Wall mountable and very affordable.

Things To Consider

  • At 11 lbs, it weighs nearly twice as much as the Samsung 32” set.
  • Not a smart TV and no internet connectivity. (You may want to look at the RCA 32” Roku model instead.)
  • Average sound quality for this size TV, so pairs well with a soundbar.

29” and smaller TVs

Andrew's Take

theHUB's electronics writer

I really like this versatile RCA 24” model that fits well in your cottage, the kid’s play room or even in your RV.

What makes this TV really stand apart is it has a built-in DVD player, saving you space and giving you an all-in-one home movie system. Because of its size, this TV also works well as a PC monitor or a gaming TV for your bedroom.

There are also multiple inputs (like HDMI x2, headphone, A/V), and the TV is only five inches thick, including the DVD player on the back.

What Customers Said

The Draw

Bought this for use in a demo and some power point projections. Worked great and had everything I needed. Can’t beat this for the price.

–FlatrateComputing, Walmart customer

The Downside

Picture is good, but sound is tinny and hollow. Fine for watching movies on a rainy day at the trailer.

–TrailerBuoy, Walmart customer

You Might Also Like

Why We Love It

  • Costs slightly more than the RCA 24” model, but you get an edge-lit LED backlight for better brightness and contrast.
  • Ambient light sensor to adjust brightness automatically, a nice feature not found on the RCA and Skyworth models.
  • The TV has two HDMI and composite video ports, as well as a USB input (which the RCA set does not).

Things To Consider

  • Speakers are only 12 watts, so if audio power is a consideration you may want to add a soundbar or stereo system.
  • Average brightness for this TV size (so generally not good in dark rooms).
  • Slightly more expensive than the RCA and Skyworth models.

Why We Love It

  • The built-in DVD player makes it great for RVs or other smaller spaces.
  • Low power usage and surge protection built in—a benefit this TV has over the Vizio and RCA sets.
  • Analog and Digital HD Tuner lets you watch over-the-air local content.

Things To Consider

  • Playing DVDs will draw more power (so be mindful if you’re using this TV in an RV or at the cottage.)
  • Average contrast for this size TV, best to avoid placing it in spaces with direct sunlight.
  • The most expensive model on our 29” and below list, with the extra cost mainly attributable to bells and whistles like surge protection, a built-in DVD player and Analog/HD Tuner.

Frequently Asked Questions

What size TV is best?

Generally, if you are sitting between five and nine feet away from your TV, a 55” screen is ideal so it won’t overpower the space or appear too large for your living room, while a 60” to 65” TV will work best for rooms where you are at least 10 feet away from the screen.

How do you measure a TV?

TV screen sizes are measured diagonally, from corner to corner, excluding the bezel. That means that a 32” TV has a screen that measures 32” from the bottom-left corner to the top-right corner. You may want to keep other dimensions in mind, including depth, width, and height, when picking a TV for your space, but the screen size is always measured diagonally. Wondering what TV size to get? See our guide for choosing the perfect TV screen size.

What is 1080p?

TV resolution is the overall picture quality, and how many pixels appear on the screen. The resolution is measured in rows and lines. Specifically, 1080p means there are 1,920 pixels horizontally, and 1,080 pixels vertically, or just over 2 million pixels. This is considered high definition or full HD.

What does 4K mean?

4K or Ultra HD is any TV resolution that is at least 3,840 pixels across by 2,160 pixels tall, and offers a clearer picture quality. The overall resolution is around four times the resolution of a 1080p television with 8 million pixels.

Are 4K TVs worth it?

With as many as four times as many pixels as HDTVs, 4K TVs offer incredible realism and picture quality. Many of these TVs also offer better contrast, refresh rates, and features like HDR, that improve the quality of any content you’re watching on the screen. Overall, the cost will be slightly higher, but the picture quality is like a home theatre experience.

What is an OLED TV?

OLED, or Organic Light Emitting Diode, is an advanced technology used in some TVs that allows individual pixels on the screen to be completely turned off. By comparison, LED TVs have a light panel behind every pixel, which means even dark spaces will never appear completely black.

Which is better: LED or OLED?

There’s no simple answer to this question, but generally, OLED TVs are considered superior for TVs because they offer the best blacks and dark spaces versus traditional LED TVs. OLED is also lighter, thinner, and uses less energy.

All of this said, LED TVs are cheaper, offer better brightness, and can be scaled to larger screen sizes. Find out more in our deep dive comparison of LED and OLED TVs.

What is the best resolution for TV?

In terms of overall quality, 8K TVs offer the absolute best resolution, at a premium price. In 2020 a number of new 8K TVs will be released.

However, it’s important to note that the quality of your content is what matters most. While 8K TVs can upscale lower-quality content, a 4K Blu-ray will look excellent on a 4K TV, and most 4K TVs can also upscale DVDs and older content.

What is a Smart TV?

Generally, a TV is considered smart if it connects to the internet using Wi-Fi or an Ethernet cable, and offers apps for streaming services or other online activities. Those services can include YouTube, Netflix, Google Play Movies, Roku, or even web browsers, as well as voice assistants like the Google Assistant. There are many ways to turn a non-smart TV into a smart TV, too.

What does HDR mean?

High Dynamic Range, or HDR, is television technology that helps provide a better viewing experience, and it’s most noticeable in movies and gaming.

On a standard TV, a scene that has a lot of bright and dark elements may end up looking uniform, since the TV can’t properly show a range of contrast across complex visuals. A TV with HDR uses the brightness and contrast to better show scenes so that details do not get lost. This makes complex details look more vivid, and realistic.

What is upscaling?

Upscaling is a conversion process that happens on a device to make a smaller image or video resolution display better on a higher resolution screen. For example, a DVD has a resolution of 720 pixels x 576 pixels, but a 4K TV has a resolution of 3,840 pixels × 2160 pixels. If you were to play a DVD on a 4K TV without upscaling, it may only fill a small corner of the screen.

Upscaling converts the lower quality video resolution to fill your 4K screen while trying to make the content look the best. Pixelation and artifacts can appear, but good upscaling makes the image quality look better, so it’s more natural.
