    The LG OLED55B8 is the best TV under $2,000 that we've tested. It's an excellent TV (the LG C8 is just as good, but it's more expensive) with remarkable picture quality. The emissive OLED technology allows it to display perfect uniform blacks, as it can switch off individual pixels.

    It has a wide color gamut and HDR content looks great with rich, saturated colors and highlights that pop. The TV has excellent reflection handling, and the image remains accurate when you watch from the side, due to the wide viewing angles. Just like most OLEDs, this TV has an almost instantaneous response time and a low input lag which will please most gamers.

    Unfortunately, when displaying static content over extended periods of time, OLED TVs (including this one) have the risk of temporary image retention and permanent burn-in. We do not expect this to be an issue with normal, varied use. Overall, this is an excellent TV for almost any use.

  2. LED Alternative: Samsung QN55Q80R

    Type : LED
    Sub-Type

    VA
    Resolution : 4k

    If the possibility of burn-in with the LG B8 concerns you, the Samsung QN55Q80R is the best LED alternative. This 55 inch LED TV has an impressive picture quality and delivers deep blacks thanks to the high native contrast ratio, excellent black uniformity, and very good local dimming support. You won't have the perfect blacks or the excellent wide viewing angles of the LG, but it has wider viewing angles than most VA panel TVs thanks to the 'Ultra Viewing Angle' technology. It can get very bright, suitable for any room, and delivers excellent HDR performance thanks to its wide color gamut. It has a fast response time that delivers crisp motion and it supports FreeSync VRR, low input lag with motion interpolation, and auto low latency, all of which make it a great choice for gamers.

    If you find that the 55 inch LG B8 is too small for your room, then the best 65 inch TV under $2,000 that we've tested so far is the Vizio P Series Quantum. This TV has great picture quality, and has an excellent dark room performance thanks to the very high native contrast ratio and good local dimming.

    This TV has outstanding SDR peak brightness and is suitable for very bright rooms. HDR content is excellent, full of rich, saturated colors and bright highlights, thanks to the TV's wide color gamut and remarkable HDR peak brightness. It has excellent motion handling that delivers crisp motion. It has very low input lag to please gamers but doesn't have any advanced gaming features.

    Unfortunately, the picture degrades when viewed at an angle, so it's not a good choice for a room with a lot of side-seating. Overall, however, it's a great TV that delivers excellent performance in most uses.

  4. More Advanced Gaming Alternative: Samsung QN65Q70R

    Type : LED
    Sub-Type
    :
    VA
    Resolution : 4k

    If you want a TV with more advanced gaming features in the 65 inch category that's still below $2,000, then get the Samsung Q70R. You won't get the excellent reflection handling of the Vizio P Series Quantum. On the upside, this is an impressive TV with very good picture quality that delivers deep blacks in a dark room. It has excellent motion handling and a very low input lag, which makes it a great choice for gamers. Also, it supports the FreeSync variable refresh rate technology for nearly tear-free gaming, and has low input lag with motion interpolation. It's a great gaming alternative but is more expensive than the Vizio.

    If you want the best 75 inch TV under $2,000, then check out the Vizio P Series 2018. You won't get the perfect blacks of the LG B8, and it can't get as bright as the Vizio P Series Quantum or handle reflections as well. Nonetheless, if these issues don't matter to you, this is a very good TV with impressive picture quality that will perform very well for most uses.

    This TV is suitable for a large room, can display deep blacks in a dark room, and has a wide color gamut that allows it to deliver excellent HDR performance with vivid colors and bright highlights. Motion handling is excellent, with crisp motion and minimal blur thanks to its fast response time and great motion handling features. The very low input lag makes the TV feel very responsive, which is great if you're a gamer or plan to use it as a monitor for presentations. Unfortunately, the viewing angles are narrow, and the most accurate image is reserved for those sitting straight in front.

    Overall, this TV delivers very good performance, and it'll keep those who choose it happy.

  6. Wider Viewing Angle Alternative: Sony XBR75X850F

    Type : LED
    Sub-Type
    :
    IPS (except 85")
    Resolution : 4k

    If you want a 75 inch TV with wider viewing angles than the ones on the Vizio P Series 2018, then check out the Sony X850F. You won't get the same deep blacks in a dark room as the Vizio, since the Sony doesn't have a high native contrast ratio or local dimming support. On the upside, it has decent picture quality and is a very good TV overall. It has wide viewing angles, and the image remains accurate when viewed from the side. It can get very bright and is suitable for a bright room. It has a wide color gamut, excellent motion handling, and good gaming performance. Overall, this TV is more suitable for larger and brighter rooms where it delivers a very good performance.

All Reviews

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.
