Looking for the right TV? It can be tough when there are so many to choose from on a site like Amazon. That’s why we took a look at the most popular televisions on Amazon and ranked the top 5 based not only on user reviews, but our own testing and expertise.
5. LG OLEDC7P
If you are looking for the TV with the best quality picture, the LG OLEDC7P is definitely the television for you. LG set the standard high with the OLEDC7P, giving more expensive televisions like the Sony XBR65A1E a true run for their money.
The design is nothing short of aesthetically superb. At 1.75 inches it’s razor thin. With half-inch border around the screen and no logo visible in the front, this TV will be a beautiful addition to any home theater. It provides 4k and HDR as well as Dolby Vision content on many of it’s apps including Amazon and Netflix. In addition, it supports Dolby Vision and HDR10, as well as HLG HDR and Technicolor HDR. There haven’t yet been any releases using the Technicolor HDR format, so it will be a while before this television is obsolete.
A big reason why OLED picture quality is so much better than that of LED is because LED televisions use a backlight that shines through LED crystals to create a picture, while OLED uses each individual pixel to create it’s own illumination, making for unparalleled blacks and extremely accurate color.
This television is also Dolby Atmos compatible, meaning you can listen to the TV’s built-in apps in Dolby Atmos if you have an external Dolby Atmos sound system. You can find a 65-inch OLEDC7P available to buy on Amazon, or you can opt for the smaller and less expensive 55-inch.
If you are looking for something that maintains picture quality but comes with a rock-bottom price tag, you may want to check out the TCL C807 Roku TV.
The TCL C807 Roku TV has superb image quality, with deep blacks and rich accurate color. The contrast is great in any lighting situation, especially in the dark. It supports both HDR10 and Dolby Vision, and features a nifty “4K spotlight” apps that curates 4k content from multiple providers in to one place.
As for the Roku interface, it’s simply the best, with extensive app streaming support and literally every video app available with the exception of iTunes. It also acts as a DVR, allowing you to pause live TV, even from the antenna. All sizes are available to buy on Amazon.
3. Sony XBRA1E
The Sony XBRA1E is the best in it’s class really the perfect television for any enthusiast. If you are looking for a step up from a Vizio or TCL, this is the TV for you.
With accurate colors, deep blacks, excellent contrast and image quality as well as smooth video processing, the Samsung MU9000leaves little to be desired. It features full-array local dimming, which allows different parts of the screen to dim independently of each other. This combined with it’s high light output makes the XBRA1E perform great in both light and dark settings.
When it comes to it’s operating system theuses an Android operating system complete with Google assistant, making it operate just like an Android phone. In addition, Alexa owners can control many features on the TV using voice commands. All sizes are available to buy on Amazon.
If you want a TV that looks just as good when it is off as when it is on, this is what you want. The Samsung MU9000 is one of the nicest looking televisions on the market and it’s picture quality is very good.
The Samsung MU9000 does more to get rid of cables than pretty much any TV out there. It features a separate input box that connects to the TV itself via 1 9-foot long wire. This makes for a clean and easy set up and truly makes your cables disappear by minimizing the number of things that need to be plugged in to the TV itself.
Theis great for bright room viewing, paralleled only by the more expensive Samsung Q7 model. Color accuracy is great making for nice contrast between different tones. It really shines in dark scenes, where it boasts deep blacks that beat out many competing and even more expensive models. They are all available to buy on Amazon.
If you are willing to sacrifice a few bells and whistles for pure picture quality, get yourself a Vizeo E-Series.
The Vizio E-Series is honestly the best TV you can get for the money. It is the cheapest TV in it’s size range, and features local-dimming, the cheapest TV you can find with this feature. It has accurate color and excellent contrast, which is especially noticeable in dark scenes. On the other hand, it isn’t the brightest TV you can buy and may not be ideal for the brightest room, but it shouldn’t be a problem for most average lighting situations.
Whatever you end up choosing, Amazon has some great deals on TVs, so we recommend buying there.
