The latest version of the TCL 6-Series has even better image quality than its predecessor, thanks to improved color, and its well-implemented full-array local dimming helps make its viewing experience run circles around just about any other TV at this price.
Sizes: 43-, 50-, 55-, 65-, 75-inch. (The price shown below is for the 43-inch size. ) Read our TCL S425 series (Roku TV) review.
This TCL 4-Series Ultra HD TV can’t beat any of the models above on image quality — its 4K resolution and HDR compatibility don’t do anything to help the picture — but it’s perfectly fine for most people, especially at this price.
We still consider the PX a better OLED alternative, however, because its picture quality is almost as good and it costs a lot less, especially in the 75-inch size. Sizes: 65-, 75-inch.
This Ultra HD OLED TV fell just a bit short of the CX (below) in image quality in our tests, but the differences are minuscule — and since it’s less expensive than the CX, it’s a better value.
I, of course, considered factors like picture quality, whether the device was a smart TV, if the picture changed depending on the viewing angle and how the TV interacted with a streaming device.
The best-performing TVs in our reviews and the best TVs for the money excel in other areas of picture quality, such as contrast, dynamic range and HDR performance.
The Vizio PX is our pick for you, with superb light output no OLED can match, top-notch local dimming and all the high-contrast, high dynamic range joy that comes with it.

The Ultra HD Q70R has an excellent picture and plenty of Samsung design and features goodies for a price that’s relatively affordable, albeit not exactly "budget".
Read our LG OLEDCX series review. Can’t afford an OLED TV?
The result is superb contrast and brightness that outdoes the Vizio PX by a nose, although this LED TV doesn’t quite hit OLED levels.
