There are not 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 will find a great selection of choices. So unless your specific situation prohibits it, take a look at these sizes instead.
We've tested 7 TVs available in this size, and below are our recommendations for the best 60 inch TVs you can buy in 2019.
Note: Prices and availability fluctuate as new models are released so older models will remain in our recommendations at this time.
The best 60 inch TV that we've tested so far is the Sony XBR60X830F. It is a good 4k TV with good picture quality, excellent motion handling, and low input lag for gaming.
This is a great TV for watching movies in a dark room, thanks to the great contrast ratio and outstanding black uniformity, despite the lack of a local dimming feature. It can display a wide color gamut and has decent color volume, but it can't get very bright in HDR, which may disappoint some viewers.
Unfortunately, the best image is reserved for those sitting directly in front, as the image degrades when viewed at an angle. Overall, though, the Sony X830F is a good TV that should please most viewers.
If your main usage is for use as a PC monitor and you want better input lag than the Sony X830F, get the Sony KD60X690E. It isn't as versatile as the X830F, as it isn't as bright, but it has a much lower input lag. This TV also lacks the more advanced Android TV smart interface, but instead features a more basic custom Sony interface.
If you find that the Sony XBR60X830F has a high input lag, and would like something more suitable for gaming, check out the 2019 Samsung UN58RU7100. This is a good 4k LED TV with decent picture quality. Unfortunately, it can't remove 24p judder from movies like the Sony, but on the upside, the Samsung has a low input lag, which is great for gaming.
This TV is a good choice for a dim room thanks to the high native contrast ratio that delivers deep blacks. It has a fast response time that leaves a small motion blur trail behind fast-moving content, which is good for people who are sensitive to stutter. The TV has a very low input lag and reacts immediately to your actions when you're gaming or using it a PC monitor. Unfortunately, the image loses accuracy when viewed from the side and the TV lacks a wide color gamut to deliver a good HDR performance.
Overall, though, this is a good TV that will keep most people happy with their choice.
If you want a budget TV that is better for watching sports than the Samsung RU7100, then get the Vizio D Series 4k 2018. This TV does not have a motion interpolation feature to please the soap opera effect fans like the Samsung RU7100 does. On the upside, the Vizio has a very fast response time, which is great for watching fast action sports. Also, the TV's good reflection handling allows you to place it in a room with a few windows without worrying about getting distracted by annoying reflections.
Our recommendation above is what we think are currently the best 60 inch LED 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.
