The top 75-inch TVs demonstrate that larger is always preferable.
When it comes to the best TVs, our suggestion at CNET is to get the biggest one you can. They may be expensive and take up a lot of area, but they are worth the cost and space. Even better, their decreased price makes them more affordable. Today’s top 75-inch TVs are shockingly inexpensive.
The greatest TVs I’ve tested in CNET’s test lab are represented in the list below, where I evaluate them side by side to determine which is most worthwhile for purchase. For the most of the models listed below, I’ve actually examined the 65-inch sizes in the series; however, except from screen size, the 75- and 77-inch variants are nearly identical.
Best 75-inch TVs
Here are the best 75-inch TVs of 2023.
The TCL 6-Series has been our favorite TV for the money for the past five years, and the most recent model, also known as the R655 series, is no exception. Mini-LED technology and well-executed full-array local dimming help this TV outperform nearly every other TV at this price point in terms of image quality. With enhanced gaming features and a new center-mount stand that you can raise to make place for a sound bar, it improves on the prior R635 series. Finally, our top pick for an operating system is Roku TV.
It should be noted that several 6-Series models, in addition to the R635, which this TV replaces, were released in 2021 and are still available. The R646 series has comparable specifications to the R655 devices examined here, however it runs on the Google TV operating system. The R648 series is substantially more expensive and boasts 8K resolution. Read our review of the TCL 6-Series.
The C2 offers the highest level of picture quality at a price that is, while expensive, not outlandish. With its flawless black levels, unmatched contrast, and excellent off-angle viewing, it surpasses every non-OLED TV on this list, including the Samsung QN90B below. Also, it offers excellent gaming features that make it the ideal mate for an Xbox Series X or S, PlayStation 5, or both. The C2 is also available in a range of sizes, however the larger models are more expensive.
The 77-inch model we evaluated weighs 60 pounds with its stand, compared to 80 pounds for the 77-inch C1, and improvements over the older C1 from include carbon-fiber construction for less weight, additional game mode adjustments, and a new “always ready” feature. Read our review of the LG OLED C2 Series 2022.
One of the more affordable Televisions with full-array local dimming is the Vizio MQX, which reproduces TV episodes, movies, and video games with sufficient contrast and pop to do HDR credit. The MQX has 42 dimming zones on its 75-inch screen, which is fewer than more expensive Televisions like the TCL 6-Series but more than enough to produce superb overall picture quality with dazzling highlights, deep black depths, sharp contrast, and true color.
The MQX, which differs from the M7 from a year ago in having a real 120Hz refresh rate, performed admirably in our tests and is compatible with 4K/120Hz transmissions from gaming consoles like the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. Both of the popular HDR formats, HDR10 and Dolby Vision, are supported by Vizio in the M-Series. The Vizio MQX is a great compromise if you can’t save enough for the TCL 6-Series or the Hisense U8H but still want a better picture than the 4-Series. Read our review of the Vizio MQX.
In our test of budget TVs, the Vizio V-Series (model V755M-K03, detailed below) outperformed the TCL 4-Series Roku TV in terms of picture quality, but the differences between the two are so negligible that you’d have to compare them side by side to detect anything at all. The Vizio provides Dolby Vision, Bluetooth, and AMD Free Sync with a variable refresh rate, all of which are absent from the 4-Series.
The superb Roku Smart TV system is incorporated into the 4-Series, giving it an edge over the Vizio. It is therefore a fantastic option for anyone seeking a complete smart TV solution without the need to add an additional streaming device. Moreover, it typically costs less than the Vizio.
Don’t want an OLED but want a high-end TV with amazing visual quality? The best option is the Samsung QN90B. For a brighter image than any OLED TV, this TV employs mini-LED technology in addition to QLED TV technology. In our side-by-side tests, OLED’s stunning contrast still prevailed, but the QN90B QLED screen came closer than ever. Read our review of the Samsung QN90B series.
In our side-by-side assessment of mid-priced devices, we somewhat preferred the TCL 6-Series, but this Hisense is a solid competitor. Best-in-class brightness, which enhances picture quality in bright environments and makes HDR TV movies, shows, and games really shine, is the foundation of its exceptional image quality. Although it is brighter and has better contrast than the TCL, the TCL ultimately won out because of its slightly more accurate image. In contrast to the TCL, the Hisense uses Google TV instead of Roku, and the U8H has an ATSC 3.0 tuner. Actually, any one is a good choice. See our review of the Hisense U8H.
The visual quality of Vizio’s V-Series stood out as the finest when we side-by-side evaluated the top budget Televisions. During our comparisons, the Vizio provided the most accurate and balanced image, and it has some convenient additions like Dolby Vision support, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth compatibility, and variable refresh rate for perhaps smoother gaming. The Vizio’s smart TV platform, Vizio Smart Cast, is by far its largest drawback. It’s clogged up, sluggish, and covered in adverts for services like Tobi and Ki doodle TV. The V-Series, however, continues to be the finest all-around entry-level TV that we evaluated, even after accounting for the price of introducing a new streaming device.
The Q60 series is one of Samsung’s most well-known TV models, which is the brand that sells the most TVs overall. Even though the ultrathin OLED versions are more svelte, its sleek QLED screen design shines out in comparison to the other TVs on this list. It also offers more sizes, greater features, and better image quality than models like the TCL 4-Series and Sony X80K. Although all of the Televisions in this post are better bargains than this one, if you want a Samsung TV but can’t afford the QN90A, this is a fantastic alternative.
The Q60A, which is the 2021 version, is still available for purchase and occasionally costs less than the Q60B. In our tests, the newer model tested brighter, but if you want the greatest price, stay with the Q60A if it’s still readily available. Read our review of the Samsung Q60B.
How CNET tests TVs
Our TV reviews adhere to a strict, objective evaluation methodology that has been refined over over two decades of TV reviews. A Meridio Sig-G 4K HDR signal generator, an AV Pro Connect 8×8 4K HDR distribution matrix, and a Konica Minolta CS-2000 spectroradiometer are among the advanced tools in our main TV test facility for detecting light and color. Each TV we assess and calibrate using Portrait Displays Calm an Ultimate software. Every CNET TV review includes a side-by-side comparison of three or more similar Televisions under various lighting conditions with various material, such as movies, TV episodes, and games, in a range of test categories, such as color, video processing, gaming, and HDR. Also, we consider the design, features, smart TV performance, HDMI input, and compatibility with games in our reviews.
75-inch TV FAQs
Is a 75-inch TV too big?
Depending on the size of your room, the distance between chairs, and your preferences. A 75-inch TV is typically great for a spacious living room or den, but it’s too big for most bedrooms or smaller living rooms. If you sit closer to the screen you don’t need as large a TV for the greatest experience. Although many viewers will find it more comfortable to sit a little further back than that, THX and SMPTE recommend being between 7.5 and 10 feet from a 75-inch screen for the best theatrical impact. If you have 20/20 vision, you may sit as close to a 75-inch 4K TV as you like and still not be able to distinguish individual pixels.
How wide is a 75-inch TV?
The majority of 75-inch TVs are 65 to 67 inches wide. 75-inch TV widths are quite consistent because the frames that surround more recent TV displays are frequently quite small. On the lower end are models with extremely thin frames; for instance, the 75-inch Samsung QN90A is 65.7 inches wide, while the slightly thicker-framed 75-inch TCL 4-Series is 66.1 inches wide. The piece of furniture holding the TV should typically be at least as wide as the TV itself, and preferably a few inches wider, if you don’t want to wall-mount it. For a specific 75-inch or 77-inch TV’s exact measurements, visit the manufacturer’s website.
How much does a 75-inch TV weigh?
The weight of a 75-inch TV with its stand ranges from 75 to 100 pounds, however it greatly varies depending on the model of TV. For instance, the 75-inch Samsung QN90B weighs 98.8 pounds with the stand, and the carbon-fiber LG C2 77-inch TV weighs 60 pounds. You can wall-mount the TV if you take the stand out, and it weighs less (stands can weigh up to 20 pounds). Additional 10–20 pounds of shipping weight (box, accessories, etc.) are included. For a specific 75-inch TV’s exact weights, see the manufacturer’s website.
