There aren't 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'll find a great selection of choices. So, unless your specific situation prohibits it, take a look at these sizes instead.
We've tested more than 70 TVs and below are our recommendations for the best ones available in 58-60 inch sizes.
The best 60 inch TV that we've tested so far is the Sony XBR60X830F. This 4K TV looks quite premium, with a sturdy stand, thin and elegant bezels, and a solid build quality. It can be placed in most rooms, thanks to its bright screen and decent reflection handling.
This TV has good overall picture quality, and while it doesn't have a local dimming feature, it still provides fairly deep and uniform blacks. It's a great TV for gaming and sports, thanks to its low input lag, and quick response time, ensuring excellent handling of fast-moving content. It has a wide color gamut and supports Dolby Vision for HDR content, though unfortunately its peak brightness is only decent and certain highlights may not pop like they should.
Like most TVs with VA panels, its viewing angles are quite poor, and you'll want to sit directly in front of the TV for the best image quality. It's worth noting that since this is an older model, it's getting harder to find at a reasonable price. Unfortunately, Sony's 2019 models aren't available in a 60 inch size, though if you're able to go larger, you'll likely be able to get a better overall TV for less money, like the 65" Sony X950G. Overall, however, this is a versatile TV that should work well in most rooms and with a wide variety of content.
If you want a good TV in the 60 inch size range but don't want to spend as much, go with the Samsung UN58NU7100. This 58 inch TV has lower HDR peak brightness than the Sony X830F, and isn't as good for sports due to its lower response time, but it has an even less input lag and better black levels. It isn't the best option for HDR content as it has low peak brightness, and only supports a standard color gamut, so colors and highlights won't pop as intended. On the upside, it has good overall picture quality, with excellent black levels and uniformity.
It's worth noting that as this is last year's model, it's becoming harder to find as it gets replaced with the similarly-performing Samsung RU7100. Overall, if you want the best 60 inch TV you can get, go for the Sony, but if you want to save some money and don't watch sports, the NU7100 is a good option, as long as you can still find it.
If you want the best 60 inch TV for gaming, then get the Samsung UN58RU7100. It's a little smaller than the Sony X830F, and can't remove judder from movies. Nonetheless, this is a good TV with decent picture quality that offers an excellent gaming experience thanks to its very low input lag. It delivers deep blacks in a dark room thanks to its high native contrast ratio, but can't get very bright, so it's best suited for an average-lit room. It has a fast response time, and fast-moving content has little motion blur trail.
Unfortunately, just like most VA panel TVs, the image deteriorates when viewed from the side, and the TV doesn't have a wide color gamut or a high HDR peak brightness, and can't deliver HDR content as it should.
Overall, this is a good TV with a good performance in most uses.
If you're a sports fan and find that motion on the Samsung RU7100 isn't as crisp as you'd like it, then check out the Vizio D Series 4k 2018 D60-F3. It has a decent picture quality and handles reflections well, so you don't have to worry about the position of the lights in your room. Fast action sports look great on Vizio thanks to the fast response time that delivers crisp motion with minimal blur. Unfortunately, this TV is becoming hard to find; its successor, the Vizio V Series 2019 V605-G3, which has a similar overall performance, has a slightly slower response time which might bother sports fans.
If you want a TV that mostly performs well for gaming, get the Samsung. If, on the other hand, you care more for sports, the Vizio is a better choice.
Our recommendation above is what we think are currently the best 60 inch 4k 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.
