The best TV for 2021: LG OLED, Samsung and TCL QLED, Sony and Vizio compared

The best TV for 2021: LG OLED, Samsung and TCL QLED, Sony and Vizio compared

Like most big purchases the best TV really means the best TV that will fit your room and budget. An OLED television will give you the best picture quality but it’s very expensive and might not be available in the size you want. That’s where this list comes in. I’ve gathered the best TVs I’ve reviewed at different prices, sizes and technologies — models with HDRUltra HD 4KQLED120Hz and HDMI 2.1 and more — based on my years of experience and side-by-side comparisons in CNET’s test lab (for the foreseeable future, that’s my basement). My focus is on finding the best picture quality for the money.

In my comparisons I look at things like contrast ratiolocal dimmingcolor and uniformitygaming input lag and refresh rate, as well as the number of HDMI ports and how well the television supports your streaming app (or apps) of choice, like Netflix, Hulu and Disney Plus. Here are my recommendations, with the following notes to keep in mind:

  • Unless noted otherwise, all of the prices you’ll see are for 65-inch models.
  • Looking for a specific screen size? Check out: 32-inch TVs, 43-inch TVs, 55-inch TVs, 65-inch TVs and 75-inch TVs.
  • If you’re worried that upcoming TVs announced at CES will have some great feature or picture quality enhancement you’ll miss out on if you buy a TV now, relax. TVs are generally a mature technology and our advice is that if you need a new TV now, you should get one.
  • Most of the TVs below came out in 2020. The new 2021 models just started becoming available but I haven’t reviewed any yet. Where applicable I’ve included a “2021 outlook” section with everything I know (so far) about these TVs’ replacements.
  • This list is updated periodically.
