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.
The best 60 inch TV we've tested so far is the Sony XBR60X830F. It's 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 you find the Sony X830F expensive, then check out the Samsung UN58NU7100. It's a 58 inch LED TV with decent picture quality. It doesn't have the same extremely fast response time and can't remove judder from any source like the Sony can. On the upside, it has a high native contrast ratio, can display deep blacks in a dark room, and has a very low input lag that will please most gamers. Unfortunately, it can't get too bright for a very bright room, but it can interpolate low fps content to 60fps which will please soap opera effect fans. Overall, it's a good TV that performs well in many uses. It's slowly becoming harder to find, as it's been replaced by the similarly performing Samsung RU7100.
If you want a TV with a better gaming performance than the Sony X830F, then check out the 2019 Samsung UN58RU7100. This is a good 4k LED TV with decent picture quality. It's not available in 60" like the Sony and can't remove judder like the Sony can. On the upside, the Samsung has a very low input lag and has an excellent performance for video games. It has a decent picture quality and is best suited for a dim room, as it can't get very bright to fight bright room glare. When in a dark room, this TV displays inky blacks thanks to the high native contrast ratio. It has a fast response time that leaves a small blur trail behind fast-moving content. This trail makes motion looks smooth and does not appear to stutter. The TVs input lag is extremely low, and will please even the most demanding gamers.
Unfortunately, just like most VA panel TVs, the image deteriorates when viewed from the side. This TV is not a great choice for rooms with wide seating arrangements.
Overall, though, the Samsung RU7100 is a good TV and most people will be happy with their choice.
If you want a budget TV that's better for watching sports than the Samsung RU7100, then get the Vizio D Series 4k 2018. This TV doesn't have a motion interpolation feature to please the soap opera effect fans like the Samsung 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.
