Large TVs are becoming increasingly popular, with manufacturers releasing more models in the 70-75-77" 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 39 TVs available in these sizes and below are our recommendations for the best 70-75-77 inch TVs to buy in 2019.
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, though, it should please most people, as it's excellent for almost any use.
If you're concerned about the possibility of burn-in that the LG C8 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 you want a less expensive TV than the LG C8, then check out the Sony XBR75X900F, the best 75 inch TV in the mid-range category. It has a VA panel, and you won't get the wide viewing angles or the perfect blacks of the LG. On the upside, this is a great TV with impressive picture quality that can deliver very deep blacks thanks to the high native contrast ratio and local dimming support. This TV can get very bright and can easily overcome glare. It has great HDR performance thanks to its wide color gamut and HDR brightness that deliver vivid colors and highlights that pop. Motion handling is excellent and only a small blur trail follows fast-moving objects, thanks to the fast response time.
Although this is an excellent TV for gaming, it does not support any of the more advanced gaming features, like FreeSync variable refresh rate support, which could be important to more serious gamers.
Overall, this is a great TV that will please most people.
If you find that the input lag of the Sony X900F isn't low enough and are looking for a TV with more gaming features and lower input lag, then get the Samsung RU8000. It's the replacement of the Samsung NU8000, which is even better but harder to find. This TV doesn't have the same excellent reflection handling as the Sony, nor does it have the excellent dark room performance. On the bright side, it has good overall performance and offers a remarkable gaming experience. It supports FreeSync, has an auto low latency mode, and has low input lag with motion interpolation. This is definitely a gamers' TV.
If you want a larger 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 does not have the dark room performance of 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.
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.
