There aren't a lot of 60 inch TVs out there, and only a few are released every year. Manufacturers are focusing more on their 55 inch and 65 inch models where you'll find a great selection of choices. So, unless your specific situation prohibits it, take a look at these sizes instead.
We've tested more than 70 TVs and below are our recommendations for the best ones available in 58-60 inch sizes.
The Sony XBR60X830F is the best 60 inch TV we've tested so far. It's a good 4k TV that has good picture quality, excellent motion handling, and low input lag, which is great for gaming.
This TV is a great choice if you enjoy watching movies in a dark room, thanks to the impressive contrast ratio and outstanding black uniformity, despite the lack of a local dimming feature. Although it can display a wide color gamut and has decent color volume, it can't get very bright in HDR to deliver bright highlights as they should be.
Unfortunately, the image degrades quickly when viewed from the side, so you should sit straight in front. Overall, though, this is a good TV that should please most viewers.
If you want to spend less than the cost of the Sony X830F but still want a good TV in the 58-60 inch size, then check out the Samsung UN58NU7100. You won't get the extremely fast response time of the Sony, and you won't be able to remove judder from all sources. On the upside, this TV has a decent picture quality, can display deep blacks in a dark room thanks to its high native contrast ratio, and has a lower input lag, which is great for gaming. Unfortunately, it's slowly becoming harder to find, as it's been replaced by the similarly-performing Samsung RU7100.
If you want the best 60 inch TV, the Sony X830F is the way to go; if you want to save some cash and won't miss the response time, then get the Samsung NU7100, if you can still find it.
If you want the best 60 inch TV for gaming, then get the Samsung UN58RU7100. It's a little smaller than the Sony X830F, and can't remove judder from movies. Nonetheless, this is a good TV with decent picture quality that offers an excellent gaming experience thanks to its very low input lag. It delivers deep blacks in a dark room thanks to its high native contrast ratio, but can't get very bright, so it's best suited for an average-lit room. It has a fast response time, and fast-moving content has little motion blur trail.
Unfortunately, just like most VA panel TVs, the image deteriorates when viewed from the side, and the TV doesn't have a wide color gamut or a high HDR peak brightness, and can't deliver HDR content as it should.
Overall, this is a good TV with a good performance in most uses.
If you're a sports fan and find that motion on the Samsung RU7100 isn't as crisp as you'd like it, then check out the Vizio D Series 4k 2018 D60-F3. It has a decent picture quality and handles reflections well, so you don't have to worry about the position of the lights in your room. Fast action sports look great on Vizio thanks to the fast response time that delivers crisp motion with minimal blur. Unfortunately, this TV is becoming hard to find; its successor, the Vizio V Series 2019 V605-G3, which has a similar overall performance, has a slightly slower response time which might bother sports fans.
If you want a TV that mostly performs well for gaming, get the Samsung RU7100. If, on the other hand, you care more for sports, the Vizio is a better choice.
Our recommendation above is what we think are currently the best 60 inch 4k 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 TVs that have a 60-inch size. 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.
