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 a 60" size and below are our recommendations for the best ones you can buy in the summer of 2018.
The best 60 inch TV we’ve tested so far is the Sony XBR60X830F. It has a very good picture quality with excellent black uniformity, wide color gamut and very accurate out-of-the-box colors. It can get very bright in SDR content, so it is suitable for brighter rooms. Its excellent motion handling will please both those who love watching fast action content as well as those who love the soap opera effect or lower fps content. The X830F is also a great TV for gamers as it has a low input lag and is very responsive.
However, the TV can't get bright enough to make highlights pop in HDR and the image quality degrades when viewed at an angle.
Overall, the Sony X830F is a very good 60-inch TV that will keep you happy in a variety of usages.
If your main usage is for gaming or as a pc monitor and you want better input lag than the Sony XBR60X830F, get the Sony KD60X690E. The X690E isn't as versatile as the X830F, as it isn't as bright, but it has 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 find that the Sony XBR60X830F is too expensive, but want something brighter than the Sony KDX690E, get the Vizio D60-F3, D Series 4k 2018. The D60-F3 is brighter than the X690E and has a wider assortment of apps in the app store. the X690E has more options to improve motion, including an optional motion interpolation feature, and it can also reduce the backlight flicker frequency to improve clarity of motion.
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.
