Samsung HU9000

Want something a bit more curvy? The HU9000 is the curved version of the 8550 (or the 8550 is the flat version of the 9000…). It comes in 55-, 65-, and 79-inch flavors. Check out our review of the 65HU9000.

The 55-inch is $2,500.

Sony-XBR65X900B-580

Sony X900B

One of the best-reviewed TVs of the year (shown above). In our review of the XBR-65X900B we said, “As a product that delivers an audio and visual experience with 4K, HD, and streaming sources, I cannot think of another LCD television that has impressed my ears and eyes more than the Sony XBR-X900B series.”

It’s available in 55-, 65-, and 79-inch sizes. The 55 is $2,800, the 65 is $3,800.

Panasonic AX800

Panasonic isn’t slouching when it comes to LCD anymore. The AX800 (and upcoming AX900) are excellent. We really liked the 65AX800 when we saw it.

You can get them through Panasonic Direct. The TC-58AX800 is $2000, while the 65-inch is $2,800.

Sony X950B

If you want to go all out, Sony’s X950B features full-array local dimming, with High-Dynamic Range processing. Go big or go home, the only sizes available are 65-inches (at $7,000) and 85-inches, for a mere $25,000.

LG 65EC9700-Front-Infill 580

LG 4K OLED!

Though they’re not available as of this writing, we expect LG’s 4K OLED displays to ship soon. They’re not cheap. The curved 65-inch 65EC9700 is $10,000. The 77-inch will be $25,000.

 

Don’t forget a 4K source!

To get the most out of your new 4K TV, you need a 4K source. Netflix streams a little content in 4K, but you really should get a 4K media streamer. There is… one option. That’s it. It’s the Sony FMP-X10, for $700. Check out our review.
