Best TV 2022 – topwatchbest

Get ready as 2022 TV models hit stores almost here! They come with spring, after teasing them CES. However, the season’s best TV features are largely as convoluted as NFT browsers – along with the current one chip shortages and supply chain problems, the best solution remains the high-quality 2021 TV. We’ve thoroughly reviewed some of the best TVs of the year, including Android TV, Roku TV, and more. In our hand-picked list below, we’ve compiled our favorite picks for the best TV. Keep an eye on read what is worth waiting for in the new 2022 TV models, and what it deserves less all the confusion.

Televisions come in all sizes and prices, so my focus is on getting the best TV picture quality for the money. LCD TVs with local dimming, Mini-LED or QLED Televisions are usually cheaper than that OLED televisions and still do well when supporting 4K resolution with HDR. While an OLED TV provides the best picture quality, it is expensive and may not be available in desired size. Based on my many years of experience and direct comparisons, in topwatchbest test laboratory, I chose the best TV of each type. We’ll keep track of new deals throughout the season and update this list periodically to help you buy the best home theater TVs like a pro. (Check out our 4K TV buying guide.)

No TV I’ve ever tested offers such high picture quality for so little money. The Dolby Vision HDR TV of the TCL 6 series has an excellent picture thanks mini-LED technology and well implemented full-range local dimming that helps it go around pretty much every other tv for the price. It also solid choice for gamers with THX mode, which combines low input lag and high contrast. As if that were not enough, the Roku TV operating system is our favorite.

This TV first came out in 2020, but is still the current model and remains my top pick. TCL also sells 6 Series 8K versionbut i guess it’s not worth the extra money as well Google based version I still have a review (although according to TCL, the image quality is the same as in this version of the Roku).

Sizes: 55-, 65-, 75-, 85 inch. (Prices shown below are for the 55 inch size.)

Picture quality as good as any TV I’ve ever tested, and a price that isn’t also crazy, the LG C1 OLED TV is my favorite choice for people for whom the picture is a priority and are willing to pay for it. It beats any TV without OLED on this list, including the Samsung QN90A below, with excellent black levels, unmatched contrast, and excellent viewing angles. It also has the best gaming features, making it the perfect companion Xbox Series X or S, PlayStation 5 or both. The C1 is available in the widest range of sizes of any OLED TV, although the larger models are really expensive.

Sizes: 48-, 55-, 65-, 77-, 83 inch. (Prices shown below are for the 55 inch size.)

Are you looking for a high-end TV with spectacular picture quality, but don’t want OLED? Samsung QN90A is your best choice. This TV uses QLED TV technology with mini-LED technology which provides a brighter picture than any other OLED TV. The spectacular OLED contrast still won in my parallel tests, but the QN90A QLED screen is closer than ever.

Sizes: 50-, 55-, 65-, 75-, 85 inch. (Prices shown below are for the 55 inch size.)

The three TVs above are amazing, but what if you can’t afford this level of picture quality? The Vizio MQ7 is one of the cheapest TVs with full local dimming functionality, which allows for reproduction TV programs, cinema and games with enough contrast and pop to do HDR justice. It’s a 60Hz model, not a 120Hz model, but still supports games with a variable refresh rate for extra smoothness. If you can’t save on the TCL 6 series, the Vizio MQ7 is the perfect consolation prize.

Sizes: 50-, 55-, 58-65-, 70-, 75 inch. (Prices shown below are for the 55 inch size.)

Roku is our favorite platform for live TV streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video, and it’s even better integrated into your TV. This TCL 4 series can’t beat any of the above models in terms of image quality – its 4K resolution and HDR performance don’t help much with the picture – but it’s fine for most people, especially for the price.

Sizes: 43-, 50-, 55-, 65-, 75-, 85 inch. (Prices shown below are for the 43 inch size.)

What are you saying? You just want the best TV and can afford whatever you want? Here you are. In my tests, the LG G1 OLED TV and the cheaper C1 above were the best TVs I have ever tested, with unmatched contrast, excellent wide viewing angles, and excellent uniformity. The main advantage of the G1 is its thinner, more wall-friendly design compared to the C1, so if you value the style and can afford it, this is the TV you can buy.

Sizes: 55-, 65-, 77-inch. (Prices shown below are for the 55 inch size.)

Vizio’s V Series is our favorite budget alternative to the TCL 4 Series Roku TV. We liked the Roku smart TV system more (sounds familiar?), But the V Series has some benefits, including a better remote with a voice and more advanced image settings. The picture quality between them was basically the same, so if you don’t have a preference it’s worth buying the cheapest one.

Sizes: 43-, 50-, 55-, 58-65-, 75-inch. (Prices shown below are for the 55 inch size.)

With superb picture quality, based on local full-array dimming and high brightness that makes HDR content sparkle, the X90J is Sony’s answer to the TCL 6 and Vizio series. The elegant design of this LED TV i Google TV the operating system scores extra points, as does its next-generation console support (it has 4K / 120fps inputs, and Sony is promising VRR … one day) and built-in NextGen TV Tuner. This Sony TV is perfect for PS5 games and works with Alexa and Google Assistant. If you want the “S” brand, this is one of the best values ​​we’ve tested.

Sizes: 50 inch, 55 inch, 65 inch, 75 inch. (Prices shown below are for the 55 inch size.)

Samsung is a TV brand that sells more TVs than anyone else, and one of the most popular is the Q60A series. Its sleek OLED screen design stands out from the rest of the TVs on this list – although the ultra-thin OLED models are even sleeker – it offers better features and picture quality than budget models like the TCL 4 series, and there’s a wide range of sizes. All of the above TVs are excellent values, but if you want a Samsung TV and can’t afford the QN90A, this is a great choice.

Sizes: 43-, 50-, 55-, 60-65-, 70-75, 85 inch. (Prices shown below are for the 55 inch size.)

Most of the televisions on this list are bright enough for almost any room, but maybe you want a screen that’s as bright as possible. The U8G outshines others in its price range, and was basically as bright as the much more expensive Samsung QN90A. Its picture quality is a bit poor in other areas and the size selection is limited, but if you crave the raw brightness, the U8G does.

Sizes: 55-, 65-inch. (Prices shown below are for the 55 inch size.)

Frequently asked questions about television

Below are answers to frequently asked questions about television. If you have other people, please contact Twitter (@katzmaier) or by clicking the small envelope icon on my topwatchbest profile page. This allows you to send the message straight to my inbox.

How big a TV should I have?

In my opinion, bigger is better, and money is best spent on large screen sizes, not a slight improvement in image quality. The answer also depends on the size of the room and the distance from the seat: if you have a large room and are sitting further, you’ll want a bigger TV. this the answer also depends on the size of the room and the distance of sitting.

What is OLED TV Burn-in?

Burn-in occurs when part of an image – such as a channel logo, an information bar, or a TV scoreboard – remains as a spooky background no matter what else appears on the screen. Burn-in is possible with any OLED TV, but not likely with normal use. The best way to prevent burnout is changing what you watch.

What’s the best smart TV system for streaming?

At topwatchbest, our favorite is the Roku for its simplicity, but different systems such as Google TV, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung, and LG have different strengths, especially when it comes to voice commands. In any case, we don’t think the built-in smart TV system is that important because you can always connect your streaming device to any TV.

How do I get the best sound from my TV?

Most TVs sound terrible because their thin chassis doesn’t have room for decent-sized speakers or bass. If you want good sound, you should buy an external audio system. Even inexpensive soundbar will provide much better sound quality than the built-in TV speakers.
