Updated
Best 65-Inch TVs

While 55-inch TVs used to be the most popular size, 65-inch models are slowly becoming the norm. They're a great choice if you have a medium-sized living room and you want to get an immersive viewing experience with a large TV. Although they used to be very expensive, you can now get a 65-inch TV in almost every price range. Nearly every TV model is available in this size, so you'll have a wide selection of TVs to choose from when looking for the best 65-inch 4k TV. Not sure if a 65-inch TV is the right size for you? Make sure to check out our TV Size to Distance Calculator if you need any help choosing what size TV to get.

We've bought and tested more than 375 TVs, and below are our recommendations for the best 65-inch TVs you can buy. For different sizes, see our picks for the best TVs and the best 55-inch TVs. Also, check out the best 70-77 inch TVs if you want something larger.


  1. Best 65-Inch TV

    The best 65-inch TV we've tested is the Samsung QN65S95BAFXZA. It's an impressive TV overall that delivers fantastic picture quality, with perfectly deep blacks and no distracting blooming around bright areas of the screen. It has remarkable color volume, so the latest content in HDR looks incredibly vivid and lifelike. It gets bright enough to bring out bright highlights the way the content creator intended.

    It's a fantastic TV for pretty much any usage, and there's a great selection of extra features with something for everyone. It supports Bixby, Google Assistant, and Alexa voice assistants, so you can choose your preferred platform and spend less time searching for content and more time enjoying your new TV. If you want to save a bit of money, the C2 is cheaper and performs almost as well, but colors aren't as bright and vibrant on it.

  2. Best 65-Inch Home Theater TV

    If you're looking for a new TV to upgrade your home theater experience and want the best of the best, check out the Sony A95K OLED instead of the Samsung S95B OLED. It's a lot more expensive than the Samsung, but it's better for watching movies thanks to its support for Dolby Vision HDR and some advanced audio codecs like DTS:X, which is commonly used for the main audio track on movies.

    It also delivers a better HDR experience thanks to Sony's impressive tone mapping and better image processing. There's less banding in areas of similar color, also known as gradients, and HDR content is displayed closer to how the content creator intended. It's not as bright as the Samsung TV, especially in HDR, as Sony aims for a more accurate image than a bright one, but HDR content looks incredible overall.

  3. Best Upper Mid-Range 65-Inch TV

    If you want a slightly cheaper TV or prefer an LED TV, consider the Samsung QN65QN90BAFXZA. Like the Samsung S95B OLED, it's a high-end TV with many features and premium picture quality. You don't get the same perfect black levels as on the S95B, but instead, the QN90B uses Mini LED backlighting behind an LCD panel, and it gets extremely bright. With its fantastic reflection handling, you won't have issues using it in a well-lit room, even with intense light. If you prefer using it in a dark room, it still has a high native contrast ratio, and its Mini LED backlighting provides a great local dimming feature that further deepens blacks.

    It's a great choice for sports fans planning on watching the big game with a large group of friends, as the image remains consistent when viewed from the sides. Like the S95B, it has a great selection of extra features, and gamers will appreciate its low input lag and HDMI 2.1 bandwidth for 4k @ 120Hz gaming. It also has great motion handling that makes fast-moving content look smooth, like when you're watching sports. Lastly, it doesn't have issues upscaling lower-resolution content, which is ideal if you watch content from a cable box.

  4. Best Mid-Range 65-Inch TV

    If you want something cheaper with high-end features and great performance, then a mid-range TV like the Hisense 65U8H is a great choice. While it's a bit less versatile than the Samsung QN90B QLED overall, as it has a worse viewing angle and limited processing, it delivers impressive performance that won't disappoint. It delivers impressive picture quality for a variety of content as it has an incredibly high contrast ratio with a great local dimming feature and amazing black uniformity, meaning blacks look deep and inky with minimal blooming.

    It looks amazing in a bright room, as it gets incredibly bright and has excellent reflection handling, so glare isn't an issue in a bright room. HDR content looks incredible thanks to its wide color gamut and high peak brightness, so bright highlights in some scenes stand out. It runs the new Google TV smart interface, which is fast and easy to use, and it has a great selection of streaming apps, so you're sure to find your favorite content.

  5. Best Budget 65-Inch TV

    If you're on a tighter budget, the best budget 65-inch TV we've tested is the Hisense 65U6H. It sits lower in the Hisense lineup than the Hisense U8H, so it's missing out on a few features and is a clear step-down in performance. It still has an excellent contrast ratio and good black uniformity, and its local dimming feature is good enough to use for a satisfying experience while watching content in dark rooms. However, you'll notice that the blacks aren't as good. It also has good reflection handling and good peak brightness for use in a well-lit room.

    Despite its budget cost, it has fantastic out-of-the-box accuracy, so you won't have to worry about getting it calibrated if you want to enjoy an accurate image with life-like colors. It has more features than its predecessor, the Hisense U6G, like eARC support if you want to connect a soundbar or home theater system. It also has some helpful gaming features, including support for a variable refresh rate to reduce screen tearing.

  6. Best Cheap 65-Inch TV

    The best cheap 65-inch TV we've tested is the Hisense A6H. Although it delivers much worse picture quality than the more expensive models on this list, like the Hisense U6H or Hisense U8H, it's still an okay choice for a moderately-lit room. Most sizes use an IPS-type panel, so it's not a good choice for a dark room, as blacks appear gray, but it has a wide viewing angle and decent reflection handling that make it an okay choice for a room with a bit of natural light.

    The built-in Google TV platform is easy to use, with a nice, polished interface that makes it easy to find your favorite content. It also has a great selection of streaming apps and games. Speaking of gaming, it's a decent TV for gamers thanks to its low input lag and support for variable refresh rate technology to reduce tearing. It has an okay response time, but you'll notice more ghosting behind fast-moving objects than you would with a higher-end TV.
