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.
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 a lot at the end of the year and especially after Black Friday.
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.
The X830F 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 X830F is a good TV that should please most viewers.
If your main usage is for gaming or 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. The X690E also lacks the more advanced Android TV smart interface, but instead features a more basic custom Sony interface.
If you want something a bit cheaper than the XBR60X830F, check out the Samsung UN58NU7100. The NU7100 is a decent 4k TV that delivers decent overall picture quality and has excellent low input lag, great for gamers.
The UN58NU7100 has an excellent native contrast ratio, outstanding black uniformity, and good reflection handling, making it a good choice for a variety of viewing conditions. That said, it can't get very bright to overcome glare in a really bright room.
Unfortunately, the NU7100 can't get as bright as the X830F, and it can't display a wide color gamut, which limits the HDR experience. Overall, though, it is a decent budget TV that should please most people.
If you want a budget TV that is brighter than the Samsung NU7100, then get the Vizio D60-F3. The Vizio D Series 4k 2018 is lacking the great gray uniformity of the Samsung and does not have such a low input lag. On the upside, the Vizio can get much brighter and has a faster response time, thus motion looks crisper. It can handle reflections well so that you don't have to worry about the presence of many small light sources in the TV room.
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.
