If you're looking to get a TV with the best picture quality available today, there's no better option than OLED TVs. They produce a better image than any LED TV currently available (see our recommendations for the best LED TVs) thanks to their unbeatable contrasts and blacks which give them unparalleled depth. In 2017, they're still a bit rare and expensive, but there are a few more choices than previous years.
Best OLED TV
The best OLED TV we've reviewed is the LG C7 4k WebOS TV. It has the best picture quality in a dark room we've tested and it can be found at a reasonable price for a high-end TV.
Much like in previous years, all OLED TVs offer the same picture quality. This means that the cheapest OLED TV will offer the same beautiful contrast as models multiple times more expensive. It's more versatile than LED TVs in the same price range too. It has a wide viewing angle for larger living rooms, its input lag is low for gaming, and it has low motion blur and great uniformity, making it a great choice for watching sports.
Overall, while it's not the brightest TV around, most people will be more than happy with the LG C7, and its great picture quality and versatility make it a top choice in almost every category.
If you're a big fan of using backlight flicker to enhance motion clarity, or if you're looking for a TV with a more striking design, the Sony A1E OLED TV is a good choice. It's a bit more expensive and it performs about the same as the LG, but it offers a handful of premium features, like a better than average sound quality.
- LG B6. Very similar in performance to the newer LG C7 but quite hard to find nowadays. See our review
- LG E6. Excellent TV with the best 3D feature we've reviewed, but stocks are a bit scarce. See our review
- LG C6. Last curved OLED TV made, and one of the last 3D TVs made, but not easy to find since it is discontinued. See our review
Currently, only LG and Sony sell OLED TVs in the US, and they all have the same picture quality. Some manufacturers like Philips and Panasonic have produced some OLED TVs that use LG panels, but these aren't sold in North America.
Our recommendations above are what we think are currently the best OLED TVs to buy for most people. We factor in the price (a cheaper TV wins over a pricier one if the difference isn't 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 OLED TVs. Be careful not to 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.
