If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that making your home entertainment experience as awesome as possible is certainly worth the investment. If you miss going to the movies as much as we do, then buying a new soundbar and flat-screen TV might just make the winter of COVID-19 a little more bearable. Although 75-inch TVs look like they have steep price tags (and in some cases they do), it wasn’t too long ago that 55- and 65-inch TVs used to cost the same amount. And when you experience a 4K movie or sporting event on a huge 75-inch display, you’ll never want to go back.
So what are the best 75-inch TVs for the money?
You’ll see that 75-inch TVs vary widely in price. That’s because the most expensive and best 75-inchers sport OLED display technology that has the best contrast and most vivid picture quality available. But you don’t have to fork out $5,000 or more to get a great looking TV. There’s nothing wrong with choosing LCD or QLED technology to save a few dollars, and the casual observer won’t be able to tell the difference, we promise. The image processors are so good inside of TVs now that you still can get an incredible looking TV sans OLED.
Of course, if you do want the best possible picture quality, you can still splurge on a Samsung Q900TS Series 75-inch TV or a 77-inch Bravia OLED TV from Sony, which will set you back $6,500 and $3,500, respectively. For the rest of us, there are plenty of highly-rated alternatives that are almost as good and much more affordable.
Below, you’ll find the best 75-inch TVs of 2020, with options for every price range. It’s time to go big or go home, or better yet, go big in your own home with one of these beautiful 75-inch flat-screen TVs from brands like LG, Sony, Samsung and TCL.
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. LG CX
When it comes to picture quality, OLED displays reign supreme, which is why SPY’s tech editor recently named the LG OLED CX Series the Best TV of 2020, full stop. WIth a 77-inch OLED display, you have one of the largest and best looking TVs ever created by man. Enhanced with a new processing chip compared to the also amazing C9 LG TV, the CX offers even more vivid colors and deeper blacks for stunning contrast you can only get from an OLED TV. Even though it’s 77 inches, the display is still razor-thin (yet includes four HDMI ports on the back). It’s everything you could want in a TV, packed into an elegantly designed package. Cinephiles will love the true 4K display while gamers can appreciate the NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, which provides a lag-free 120 hz refresh rate.
2. Sony Bravia OLED A9G 77-Inch TV
LGs aren’t the only TV manufacturer to utilize OLED technology. If you decided to go with the Sony A9G over the LG CX, you wouldn’t get an argument from us. Armed not only with OLED technology, but with the Sony X1 Ultimate processor, the picture quality is nothing short of awesome. Taking this TV’s wow factor even a step further is your choice of voice AI. You can use Google Assistant to control your TV, or connect it to an Alexa enabled device to control your TV, as well as your smart home. It also supports Apple Airplay and HomeKit for those of you in the Apple Ecosystem. Simply put, it’s one of the best 75-inch TVs (technically, it’s 77 inches) you can buy right now.
The A9G is actually Sony’s 2019-model OLED TV series (Sony’s 2020 model A9H is unavailable above 65-inches), but that just means you can knock $1,000 off the original price, which is a great deal for anyone committed to OLED TV technology. This TV boasts a 120hz refresh rate and 4K HDR resolution that puts other TVs to shame.
3. Sony X900 75-Inch TV
If you love the idea of having a 75-inch Sony TV, but you aren’t quite ready to drop $3,500, you can go with the still incredibly Sony X900H 75-inch TV for half the cost. Sure, this particular Sony TV doesn’t have OLED technology (hence the huge price drop), but the same amazing X1 processor and voice controls come along for the ride. And with HDMI 2.1 standards with 120 fps for reduced lag time, the picture will be smooth enough for even the most snobby gamers. This is a great mid-tier option when $3,000 exceeds your budget.
4. TCL 6 Series
The fact that you can find a 75-inch TCL 6 series for under $1,500 is proof that 2020 isn’t completely terrible. Packed behind this massive display is mini-QLED technology — tiny little LEDs that individually light up the display — and 240 localized zones. The brightness and contrast this TV produces looks more like a premium pick rather than a budget option. And gamers can enjoy smooth, low input lag using the THX Certified Game Mode for a great gaming experience. This TV is a smart way to get a huge, solid TV in your home without clearing out the bank account.
5. Vizio P-Series Quantum X
GREAT MID-TIER OPTION
Vizio makes some of the best flat-screen TVs in any size for budget shoppers, and the company makes the best 65-inch TV under $500. Here’s another great option in the same series that won’t break your bank, but provides plenty of picture quality and robust features. For starters, 480 local dimming zones help create strong contrast (albeit not true black) to make the picture really pop. And with the help of Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10, the picture quality looks remarkable across the entire 75-inch screen. When you add in Apple Airplay support along with Apple HomeKit, the $2,000 price tag starts to look like more and more of a steal.
6. Samsung Q80T
22% Discount at Amazon
GREAT QLED OPTION
Built inside of the 75-inch TV is the Quantum 4K processor that uses smart learning to upscale everything you watch to 4K. The results are vibrant picture quality, even when you are watching older content. And all of your media players and gaming consoles will have a home thanks to four HDMI ports and two USB ports. Even though we recommend pairing any TV with a soundbar, speakers located on the top and bottom of the display help create some sort of resemblance of surround sound (still not close to movie theater quality though). Taking all that into consideration, this is a great mid-tier option, especially if you tend to lean towards Samsung products, which come with a built-in smart TV system.
7. Samsung Q950TS 8K QLED
TRUE 8K OPTION
Look, we’re not going to lie, the Q950TS 8K TV is objectively better than the measly 4K Q80T featured above. So why have we ranked it lower? Simply put, for the price, the picture quality isn’t that much better to justify the price tag. However, if you do want to go all-in on one of the best TVs in the world, why settle for 75-inches? If you really want to go hard in the paint, the 82-inch Samsung Q950TS is not only huge, but sports 8K technology. Going with an 8K TV is a bit of overkill for now, but you are certainly future-proofing your entertainment center when 8K content starts to become more available. In any size, this QLED TV upscales lower resolution content to enhance your viewing experience. B
eyond stunning picture quality, the design might actually be more impressive. The bezel is almost nonexistent, maximizing the size of the display and making the TV look incredible stylish. This TV is wildly expensive, but you’ll have the biggest and most badass TV in your neighborhood — we’re sure of that.
8. LG NanoCell 90 Series
BUDGET LG PICK
When spending $3,000 plus is out of the picture, the LG NanoCell 90 Series is a highly recommended smart TV choice from LG, one of our favorite TV manufacturers. Even though it might not achieve true black like an OLED screen, you still get a massive 77-inch display with great contrast, brightness and picture processing. And when you consider just how easy and convenient LG’s native webOS is to navigate through all of your favorite content apps, you’re not really giving up too much in terms of quality, but you will be saving a ton of cheddar.
9. Hisense Class H8G Quantum Series
BUDGET OPTION FOR GAMERS
Considering everything that comes with this TV for $1,300 — great 4K resolution, 240 hz refresh rate and basically your choice of Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa – you truly get a lot without spending a whole lot. It even comes equipped with Dolby Vision, HDR 10 and HDR 10+, (LG CX doesn’t even have HDR 10+ support). Even though you aren’t getting the best display technology or the brightest display, you’re still getting a huge TV with plenty of HD support that makes for a great viewing experience. Your bank account will also thank you later.
10. Samsung Q60T Series 75-Inch QLED TV
BEST 75-INCH TV UNDER $1,200
If you need to stay below the $1,200 price range but still want one of the best 75-inch TVs in the world, then the 2020 model Samsung Q60T series is your best bet. This TV only offers a 60 hz refresh rate, so cinephiles and gamers will sacrifice a little in terms of picture smoothness. However, Samsung’s smart TV interface and the true 4K picture quality is still mighty impressive.
