Our pick

In terms of value and performance, the LG B8 Series is pretty much the best TV you can buy.

With Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos built in, as well as HDR10+ support, this TV promises one of the most immersive experiences available today. It's pricey, but if you want premium, this is it.

Since you can often find this TV for around $200, it's an excellent value for its size. You get LG's webOS smart platform, with Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, and more features built in, and its 720p picture is more than enough at 32 inches.

Best LED TV: Samsung Q9F Series (65", 75")

Samsung's "QLED" TV is the best TV outside of OLED TVs. Quantum dot LEDs have much less chance of image burn-in and can produce better blacks and more colors than your typical LED display. This TV shows you everything Samsung is known for, from outstanding color and well-balanced contrast to deep blacks and little motion blur, all in glorious 4K, with HDR10+ support. This model also features Samsung's smart platform, which includes Bixby Voice control.

If money is no object, then Sony's A9F model may be the TV for you, as it features the absolute best Sony has to offer. This OLED TV has a 4K display, a fascinating "kickstand" design, Google Assistant and Alexa control capabilities, and tons more. If you're a movie buff, this TV is unparalleled in its dark room performance, with perfect blacks and no picture degradation at wide angles.

Shopping for a TV can be tricky, especially since what may seem like an awesome deal (according to the salesperson) can often be a dud. If you want the best all-around TV you can buy right now, then buy the LG B8, which offers the best in OLED panels today. But if price is a motivator, then go with the Vizio P-Series, which shows all of the excellent progress Vizio has made over the last few years.
