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 that you can buy in the summer of 2019.
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 it's best that you 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, 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 Unfortunately, it's slowly becoming harder to find, as it's been replaced by the similarly-performing Samsung RU7100.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 wish 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 a TV with a better gaming performance than the Sony X830F, check out the 2019 Samsung UN58RU7100. This is a good 4k LED TV with decent picture quality. It's slightly smaller than the Sony and can't remove judder at all. On the upside, the Samsung has a very low input lag for an excellent gaming experience. The picture quality is decent and the TV will look its best in a dim room, as it can't get very bright. When in a dark room, this TV displays inky blacks thanks to the high native contrast ratio. It has a fast response time and delivers crisp motion. The input lag is extremely low, so it'll please even the most demanding gamers.
Unfortunately, just like most VA panel TVs, the image degrades at an angle, so it's better to sit straight in front. This isn't a great choice for rooms with wide seating arrangements.
Overall, though, this is a good TV and most people will be happy with their choice.
If you want a TV that's better for watching sports than the Samsung RU7100, then check out the Vizio D Series 4k 2018 D60-F3. This TV might be hard to find, as it's being replaced by the Vizio V Series 2019 V605-G3, which has similar overall performance but a bit slower response time. However, this TV has a very fast response time, which is great for watching fast-action sports, and has decent picture quality. Also, the TV has good reflection handling, which is great if you have a room with lots of lights.
If you mostly care about gaming, then the Samsung RU7100 is the best choice; otherwise, if you also watch a lot of sports, then the Vizio D Series 4k 2018 might be a better option.
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.
