If you’ve been dabbling with the idea of investing in an expensive projector and projector screen, laying down the cash for a 75-inch TV may be a better option. Sure, in years past, the bigger the TV screen, the easier it was to see any imperfections in whatever source image was onscreen. But the best 75-inch TVs of 2022 are engineered to deliver near-perfect, immersive imagery, regardless of the monolithic size.
Even better, as display technologies like OLED and QLED improve, bigger TVs are becoming more affordable than ever before. In 2022, you can even find 75-inch TVs under $1,000, although premium models will still cost you closer to $2,000 or $3,000.
Big brands like Samsung, Sony and LG offer high-end 75-inch TVs that pack in tons of premium features like OLED screens, object tracking sound for immersive, 3D audio, and mobile device connectivity. Other brands like TCL and Hisense offer mid-tier and budget-friendly options that still give you everything you’ve come to expect from a smart TV without breaking the bank. Many brands have also begun to offer 8K resolution so you can future-proof your home theater, but you’ll have to dig deep if you want to get your hands on one.
This spring, Samsung unveiled its first OLED TV (sadly, not available in this size category) and LG updated its line of premium TVs. As the 2022 models hit store shelves, we’ve updated our ranking of the top TVs of the year. So what’s the best 75-inch TV for the money right now? Keep reading to find out.
How We Chose the Best 75-Inch TVs
Choosing a new TV is no small feat, and at SPY, we take TV vetting and testing very seriously. When considering what models to add to this roundup of the best 75-inch TVs, we paid close attention to the following criteria when selecting what models would be featured on our list.
- Price – Hammering out a budget is going to go a long way towards reducing frustration and stress when shopping for a new TV. You’ll not only stop yourself from overspending, but you can also narrow down your options in order to get the best features for the best price.
- Screen Size – You also need to make sure a 75-inch TV is actually going to fit in your living room or home theater. The best way to find your ideal screen size is to measure the distance, in inches, from your couch to wherever your TV is going to be wall-mounted or placed on a stand. So if you plan on sitting around 12 feet (144 inches) from your TV, the best screen size will be around 75 inches. It’s important to get a TV that is sized correctly so that you don’t overwhelm your space with one that is too large or, conversely, makes your living room feel like a cavern with a too-small TV.
- Connectivity – Make note of how a TV will connect to things like Blu-Ray players, game consoles and audio equipment. You want to make sure that you’ll have enough HDMI inputs to set up your home theater or game space without having to invest in an annoying HDMI switcher. If you want a wireless setup, make sure that your new TV works with Bluetooth or WiSA.
- Sound and Picture Quality – You’ll also want to check out how your new TV processes picture and sound. If picture quality is your top priority, you may want to invest in an OLED model for the richest colors and best detailing. If you don’t want to spend that much, get a TV that uses Dolby Vision or another HDR processing technology. For sound, many high-end models use object-tracking sound to follow on-screen action. And in the case of Sony, you can choose a model with tiny actuators that turn the entire screen into a speaker for near-perfect sound and video syncing.
We’ve rounded up 15 of the best 75-inch TVs from brands like Samsung, TCL, and Hisense to help you decide which is the best fit for your space and needs. We broke down their features and price points to help you find the best model for your budget, and you can keep reading below to find the best TV for you.
A Quick Note on TV Sizing
For the purposes of this article, we are not making a distinction between the best 77-inch TVs from LG and Sony and the slightly smaller 75-inch TVs from Samsung, TCL, Vizio and other TV manufacturers. Remember, TV sizes are measured diagonally, not horizontally. While some companies have added a couple of inches, we consider 75- and 77-inch TVs to belong to the same class, and we’ve included both size options in our shopping guide.
1. Samsung QN90B
If it’s the best of the best that you’re after, Samsung’s QN90B is our top pick when it comes to the best 75-inch TVs of today. While the brand has been implementing quantum-dot tech on many of its leading models over the last few years, the latest implementation of full-array Mini LED lighting on the QN90B adds a level of brilliance and color accuracy the likes of which the TV-watching world has never seen.
On top of 4K upscaling and support for some of the leading HDR picture codecs, the QN90B is also equipped with four HDMI 2.1 inputs for future-proofed entertainment, along with Dolby Atmos and Object Tracking Sound for amazing audio immersion. Is it going in a room with lots of windows? Samsung’s powerful anti-glare panel will ensure that ambient lighting is never an issue, regardless of where you place the TV in your home.
2. LG C2 Series
BEST 75-INCH OLED TV
For 2022, LG completely redesigned its award-winning OLED panel, now classing the screen as the OLED Evo. We recently named this the best TV of 2022 (so far), so why isn’t it ranked as the top option here? When you get into the 75-inch territory, this TV is expensive. For the average shopper, there are 75-inch TVs that offer a better value, even if they can’t quite match the LG C2 Series on a technical level.
Delivering exceptional brightness that matches the luminance of some of today’s top QLED sets, the Evo screen is also backed up by LG’s Brightness Booster which cranks the brightness up another few notches. Movie fans will also love the C2’s built-in Filmmaker Mode that adjusts color, contrast, and motion to be exactly the way the filmmakers intended for their finished product to look. And even if you’re watching an older flick, the TV’s onboard upscaling will enhance even the oldest sources to appear closer to UHD quality.
3. Samsung AU8000
BEST 75-INCH TV UNDER $1000
This 75-inch TV from Samsung is not only one of the more affordable options from the brand, it still packs in plenty of cool features.

You can connect soundbars and other audio equipment via Bluetooth for a wireless setup or HDMI ARC; you can also connect a compatible Samsung soundbar to take advantage of the Q Symphony feature which uses both the soundbar and your TV’s integrated speakers to create a fuller sound. The suite of preloaded apps is in an easy-to-navigate hub menu so you can start streaming your favorite shows and movies right out of the box.
