Large TVs are becoming increasingly popular, with manufacturers releasing more models in the 70-75-77" range. The 2017 models in these sizes are becoming cheaper while the 2018 ones are now the flagships of each manufacturer. LG and Sony have released and announced new OLED TVs available in a 77-inch size, although they are still very expensive.
We've tested 35 TVs available in these sizes and below are our recommendations for the best 70-75-77" TVs to buy in 2019. See also our recommendations for the best 80 to 85 inch TVs and the best OLED TVs.
Note: Prices and availability fluctuate a lot at the beginning of the year as manufacturers prepare for the launch of new models.
The best TV we have reviewed that is available in a 70-75-77 inch size is the LG OLED77C8. The OLED panel delivers a remarkable viewing experience, with perfect blacks and wide viewing angles. It has an excellent wide color gamut, and outstanding gradients with almost no noticeable banding.
The C8 is excellent for gaming, as it has excellent low input lag. It supports 1080p and 1440p @ 120 Hz, which is great for PC or Xbox One S/X gamers. The nearly instantaneous response time delivers crystal clear motion, with almost no blur trail, and has no noticeable backlight flicker.
Unfortunately, the LG C8, like all OLED TVs, has a risk of temporary image retention and permanent burn-in, but we don't expect this to be an issue for most people. Overall, though, the LG C8 should please most people, as it is excellent in almost any usage.
If the possibility of burn-in with the LG C8 concerns you, check out the Samsung QN75Q9FN instead. The Q9FN is an excellent 4k LED TV with deep, uniform blacks, outstanding peak brightness, and excellent motion handling. It has extremely low input lag for gaming, and it has some great gaming features, including auto low latency mode and support for AMD's FreeSync variable refresh rate technology.
If you find the LG C8 expensive, the best 75 inch TV in the mid-range category is the Sony XBR75X900F. The X900F does not have the perfect blacks of the C8 and the viewing angles are not as wide. However, it is a very good TV for a dark room due to its effective full array local dimming and high native contrast ratio that produce deep blacks. In a bright room, the X900F looks great, as it can easily fight glare and handle reflections very well. It is also a good choice for casual gaming as it has a low input lag, but unfortunately it is missing the gaming features of the Samsung QN75Q9FN. Motion looks excellent on the X900F as it has a very fast response time that makes fast moving objects look crisp. Overall, it is a great TV that will perform very well in almost any use.
If you're looking for a cheaper alternative to the Sony X900F, then we recommend the 75" Vizio P75-F1. The P Series does not have the excellent reflection handling of the Sony, but it has a superior input lag and an equally good motion handling. It is a versatile TV that is good at almost any usage.
Note: This TV may be hard to find in stock. If so, see the Samsung NU8000 alternative.
If you're looking for a gaming alternative to the Sony X900F, we recommend the Samsung UN75NU8000. It doesn’t have the picture quality of the Sony and it will not perform as good in movies or HDR content as it lacks full-array local dimming. However, it is equipped with a very low input lag, support for AMD's FreeSync variable refresh rate, auto low latency, and low input lag with motion interpolation. All these features make it attractive to gamers.
If the Sony X900F is outside your price range, the best 70 inch TV in the budget category is the Vizio D Series 4k 2018 D70-F3. It does not have the more advanced features like local dimming or motion interpolation found on the Sony X900F. On the upside, the Vizio D Series 4k 2018 is a TV with decent picture quality and deep, uniform dark scenes that look good in a dark room. It has a fast response time and low input lag which makes it very responsive for gaming or PC use.
Unfortunately, the image degrades when viewed from the side, and its HDR performance is mediocre.
Overall, the Vizio D Series 4k 2018 is a decent but basic 4k TV that is okay for most uses.
If you want a larger TV, the best 75 inch 4k TV in the budget category is the Samsung UN75NU7100. It does not have the fast response time or the brightness of the Vizio. On the upside, the Samsung NU7100 is larger, has a lower input lag (which is great for gaming or use as a PC monitor), and it includes an optional motion interpolation feature. Overall, it is a decent TV that performs well in most usages.
Our recommendations above are what we think are currently the best 70-75-77 inch 4k TVs to buy for most people in each price range. We factor in the price (a cheaper TV wins over a pricier one if the difference isn't really 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 70 or 75 or 77-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.
