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 2018.
The best 60 inch TV we’ve reviewed is the Sony XBR60X830F. Thanks to its deep and uniform blacks, excellent motion handling and wide color gamut, the picture quality is great. The TV can be placed in well-lit or dark rooms because of its high peak SDR brightness and its great native contrast ratio. Excellent low response time and input lag in 'Game' mode will please gamers. The X830F is also a great choice for fans of the soap opera effect as it can interpolate lower frame rate content up to 120fps.
On the other hand, the viewing angles aren’t wide enough for larger seating arrangements as the image quality degrades when viewed from the side. It also has mediocre peak brightness in HDR and does not support local dimming.
Overall, the XBR60X830F is a great 60 inch 4k TV that will satisfy most users.
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. It 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 the Sony XBR60X830F expensive and want the best value in the 58-60-inch range, the best TV we've tested is the Samsung UN58NU7100. You will not get the great brightness levels, or the excellent motion handling features of the Sony XBR60X830F.
On the upside, the Samsung NU7100 has a decent picture quality with a good native contrast ratio and blacks that look deep in a dark room. The gray uniformity is good, and most people will not notice any dirty screen effect when watching sports. It has a decent response time and although this leaves a little longer blur trail in fast content, it also makes the motion look smoother. It has an option to introduce flicker to reduce blur. Finally, it has an extremely low input lag, and this is great for those who wish to use it for gaming or as a PC monitor.
Overall, the Samsung UN58NU7100 will not disappoint you and will perform decently in most usages.
If you find that the Samsung NU7100 is not bright enough, then get the Vizio D60-F3. The D Series 4k 2018 does not have the great gray uniformity or the very low input lag found on the NU7100. On the upside, the Vizio is brighter, has a wider assortment of apps in the app store, and a faster response time so that fast motion has a smaller blur trail.
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.
