Large TVs are becoming increasingly popular, with manufacturers releasing more models in the 70-75-77 inch range. The older models in these sizes are becoming cheaper, while the newer 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 36 TVs available in these sizes and below are our recommendations for the best 70-75-77 inch TVs to buy in 2019. See also our recommendations for the best TVs, the best 65 inch TVs, and the best 80-82-85 inch TVs.
The best TV we have reviewed that's 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.
This TV is excellent for gaming, as it has excellent low input lag. It supports 1080p @ 120Hz, which is great for PC or Xbox One gamers. The nearly instantaneous response time delivers crystal clear motion, with almost no blur trail, and has no noticeable backlight flicker.
Unfortunately, this TV, 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, it should please most people, as it's excellent for almost any use.
If the possibility of burn-in with the LG C8 OLED concerns you, check out the Vizio P Series Quantum X 2019 PX75-G1. This outstanding LED TV is now available in a 75" size. It's one of the brightest TVs on the market, and still looks great in a dark room thanks to the outstanding contrast ratio and great local dimming feature. It also has excellent motion handling and low input lag, which is great for gaming. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the wide viewing angles of the LG.
If you're concerned about the possibility of burn-in that the LG C8 OLED has, then get the new Samsung QN75Q80R instead. This is a remarkable TV with excellent dark room performance and excellent peak brightness. It's equipped with the new 'Ultra Viewing Angle' technology and has decent viewing angles. Motion handling is excellent and the TV has a very fast response time. This TV has an extremely low input lag, and it has some great gaming features, including AMD's FreeSync variable refresh rate technology and low input lag with motion interpolation.
If color accuracy is important to you, check out the Sony XBR75X900F instead. This is a versatile 4k TV with excellent contrast, impressive peak brightness, and excellent reflection handling. It supports the latest HDR technology, including Dolby Vision, and the latest 4k UHD HDR movies look amazing thanks to the incredible HDR peak brightness and very good wide color gamut.
This TV is also a great choice for gaming. It has an excellent response time, so fast-moving objects have very little blur behind them, and it has great low input lag for a responsive gaming experience. With our recommended settings, this TV is also one of the most accurate TVs we've tested, and most people won't be able to spot any inaccuracies.
Unfortunately, the image degrades when viewed at an angle, so this TV isn't as good for watching the big game with a group of friends, or if you have a wide seating area. Overall, it's one of the best 75 inch TVs we've tested.
If you want a better gaming experience, check out the Samsung UN75RU8000 instead. It delivers a more responsive gaming experience, with significantly lower input lag than the Sony XBR75X900F. It also supports some great gaming features, including AMD's FreeSync variable refresh rate technology, great for Xbox one gamers or PC gamers with AMD graphics cards. This TV doesn't have a local dimming feature, but it has slightly better contrast than the Sony, even with local dimming. Unfortunately, it isn't as bright, so small specular highlights in some games don't stand out as much.
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 doesn't have the more advanced features found on the Sony, like local dimming or motion interpolation. On the upside, this 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 make it very responsive for gaming or PC use.
Unfortunately, the image degrades when viewed from the side, and its HDR performance is mediocre.
Overall, this is a decent but basic 4k TV that is okay for most uses, and is one of the best 70 inch TVs for the money.
If you want a larger TV than the Vizio D Series 4k 2018, then check out the TCL 4 Series 75S425. The TCL can't reach the brightness levels of the Vizio, so it's more suitable for a dimmer room. On the upside, this is a larger TV with decent picture quality. It displays deep blacks in the dark but lacks a local dimming feature to further improve dark room performance. Although it supports HDR, it doesn't have a wide color gamut or high HDR peak brightness to deliver the creators' intent with vivid colors and bright highlights.
The response time is very fast, so fast-moving content has only minimal blur trail, and the very low input lag makes it a good choice for gaming or use as a PC monitor. Overall, it's a TV that performs decently in most uses and is a good value for the size.
If you want a TV that can accommodate wide seating arrangements, then the best 75 inch 4k TV in the budget category with wide viewing angles is the LG 75UK6570. It doesn't have same the dark room performance as the Vizio D Series 4k 2018 and it's more expensive, but it will keep you happy if you often watch TV from the side. It's larger, has a lower input lag, and has a motion interpolation feature that will please those who enjoy the soap opera effect. Overall, it's a good TV that performs well in most uses and is one of the best 75 inch TVs for the money.
