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
Undeniably, the LG OLED55B6P is the best 4k TV under $2,000 in terms of picture quality. OLEDs, thanks to their infinite contrast ratio, can produce exceptionally detailed images and have completely pure blacks.
Picture quality isn't the only advantage of OLED TVs. They have the widest viewing angle available, and their instant response time means high framerate content such as video games and sports look extremely smooth. OLED TVs offer a complete package and if you can afford them, are very hard to beat. They do have some downsides: static images will be retained as a "ghost" for a few minutes after the screen has changed, and content that is bright across the whole screen might cause it to dim a little, but it is fairly minor overall.
Best Value for Size under $2,000
For something much larger than 55", the Vizio M70-D0 LED TV can be found under $2,000. Its picture quality is definitely a step below the LG B6, but it is still quite good.
You get quite a lot for your money with the M70-D0. It has some very good picture quality, mostly thanks to its great local dimming feature that greatly helps with contrast by lowering the brightness of areas of the screen that show darker colors. The Vizio M Series 2016 is also one of the best gaming TV available thanks to its very low input lag and response time.
It doesn't have the more advanced HDR features of higher-end models, but it is still an excellent 70 inch TV with great value, especially when it comes to size.
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).
A few examples of TVs under $2000 that didn't make the cut:
- Samsung UN65KS8000. Very good set but almost out of stock everywhere now. See our review
- LG 65UH8500. Trumped by most other TVs in the price range, only ever advisable if you plan to mostly watch the TV from the side. See our review.
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.
