Under $2000, you can find TVs that offer the best picture quality currently available, and you can even find TVs as large as 75 inches without any issue. Now that we're getting close to Black Friday, TVs are reaching their lowest official price before getting discontinued. Unless you want both top of the line picture quality and a very large size, most people will find their best fit in this price range without much compromise.
So far, we've tested 11 TVs available under $2000 and below are our recommendations for the best ones you can purchase this fall.
Best TV under $2,000
The best TV you can find under $2,000 is the LG OLED55B7A 4k WebOS TV. Like other OLED TVs we've reviewed (including the very similar C7), it offers the best picture quality of any TV found today while keeping a simple design that omits superfluous features that raise the price.
Like its very popular predecessor, the LG B7 utilizes OLED technology which, unlike standard LED/LCD TVs, allows it to completely shut off individual pixels to display perfect blacks. It is essentially the most precise type of local dimming, and since blacks and contrast are most important for picture quality, OLEDs are impressive to look at.
They have other advantages too that make them quite versatile; while they don't get as bright as the brightest TVs available today, OLEDs like the LG B7 have a wider viewing angle which allows you to enjoy it even from the sides without a considerable loss in picture quality. Although the LG B7A does have some issues with temporary image retention, it's one of the only OLED TVs available under $2,000 and it's our top recommendation for anyone that wants the best image they can get.
If you think that the LG B7's image retention might cause you issue or if you're simply looking for a brighter TV, we recommend the Sony XBR55X930E 4k LED TV. It's one of the best LED TVs we've tested this year and while it doesn't have the wide viewing angle of the LG B7, it gets considerably brighter while also having a decent local dimming which helps it keep good blacks.
Best Value for Size under $2,000
For something much larger than 55", we recommend the Vizio M75-E1 LED TV. You don't get all the bells and whistles found on the smaller premium OLED TVs available in this price range, but it's still a good TV that offers great value for money thanks to its large size.
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.
If you want something a little cheaper and don't care much about HDR, go for the Vizio E75-E3 4k SmartCast LED TV. It lacks HDR-related features found on the M Series like a wide color gamut, and its local dimming is a bit less powerful, but its picture quality is still good and the overall package is quite similar.
- Samsung UN65KS8000. Very good set but very difficult to find. See our review
- LG OLED55B6P. Excellent OLED TV, but discontinued now and difficult to find. See our review
- Sony XBR55X900E. Great and versatile LED TV, but the Vizio M series offers a much larger size for the money. See our review.
- Samsung UN55MU9000. Good LED TV that handles reflections very well, but poor value overall. See our review.
- Samsung QN55Q7F. Good TV with great colors, but the overall package isn't very competitive compared to the LG B7 or Sony X930E. See our review.
- Sony XBR65X850E. Decent size for the money, but the Vizio M75-E3 offers better value for its size See our review
- LG OLED55C7P. Great OLED TV, but almost identical to the cheaper B7. 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.
