In this price range, you can find 2016 OLEDs as well as very large LED TVs. Without any compromise (except size), you can expect the absolute best picture quality available. Here are our recommendations for the best TVs under $2000.
Best TV under $2,000
The LG OLED55B6P is the best TV under $2,000 we've reviewed so far. It offers nearly the same picture quality as current OLED TVs and in this price range, there is no better picture quality available.
OLED TVs have a stark advantage compared to LED TVs when it comes to picture quality. The B6 can produce perfect blacks that are completely uniform. This gives the TV an infinite contrast and the image an impressive amount of depth.
OLED TVs like the B6 also have a definitive advantage with regards to their viewing angle. Unlike most LED/LCD TVs, sitting to the side of the screen has far less impact on the picture quality. It isn't perfect since their colors shift a little, but it is still much better than average. Overall, even if it's an older model, the LG B6 is tough to beat under $2,000.
If you want a very bright TV or simply aren't a big fan of OLED TVs, go for the Sony XBR55X930E. It has some of the best picture quality we've tested and can get as bright as 1400 nits, which is significantly brighter than the LG OLED55B6P.
Best Value for Size under $2,000
For something much larger than 55", we recommend the Vizio M70-E3 LED TV. It won't have the same exceptional picture quality of the OLED, but it's still great for an LED TV.
It has good picture quality, and a better than average local dimming feature that enhances blacks and gives more depth to the image. It has a wide color gamut as well so it's definitely HDR capable.
It's not as bright as high-end models and doesn't have the wide viewing angles of the OLED TVs, but it's still a very good TV that you can get at a much larger size than those under $2,000.
- Samsung UN65KS8000. Very good set but almost out of stock everywhere now. See our review
- Sony X900E. Great and versatile LED TV, but the Vizio M series offers a larger size for the money. See our review.
- Samsung MU9000. Good LED TV that handles reflections very well, but poor value overall. See our review.
- Samsung Q7F. Good TV with great colors, but overall package isn't very competitive compared to the LG B6 or Sony X930E. See our review.
- Sony X850E. Decent size for the money, but the M70-E3 offers a larger size within the budget. See our review.
Our recommendations above are what we think are currently the best TVs under $2,000 to buy for most people. We factor in the price (a cheaper TV wins over a pricier one if the difference isn't really worth it), feedback from our visitors and availability (no TVs that are difficult to find or almost out of stock everywhere).
If you would like to do the work of choosing yourself, here is the list of all our reviews of TVs that are less than $2,000. Be careful to not get too caught up in the details. While no TV is perfect, most TVs are great enough to please almost everyone and the differences are often not noticeable unless you really look for them.
