The Roku Plus Series QLED is the top model in Roku's first-ever proprietary series of TVs. It sits above the Roku Select Series, and unlike that model, it uses quantum dot technology to display a wider range of colors than traditional TVs. As it's a budget TV, it lacks some gaming features that more expensive models tend to have, like HDMI 2.1 bandwidth, a 120Hz panel, and variable refresh rate (VRR), although it does have local dimming. It also supports both Dolby Vision and HDR10+. It comes with version 12.5 of Roku's fast and intuitive Roku TV smart OS, and its remote comes with an integrated microphone for voice commands. You can also use voice through the Roku app on your phone if you prefer. It's a Best Buy exclusive and is available in three sizes: 55, 65, and 75 inches.

Our Verdict

7.3 Mixed Usage

The Roku Plus Series TV is decent overall. It has excellent contrast and adequate HDR brightness, so it looks pretty good when watching HDR content in dark rooms. It also gets bright in SDR and has good reflection handling, so it handles bright rooms very well. Unfortunately, the TV's viewing angle is inadequate, so it's a poor choice for a wide seating arrangement, like when watching sports or shows with friends. The TV is at its best when watching high-quality 4k content from physical sources, as its image processing capabilities are disappointing when dealing with low-quality or low-bitrate content. It's also a very good gaming TV with fantastic input lag and great response time.

Pros
  • Excellent contrast for deep blacks.
  • Bright enough to fight glare in SDR.
Cons
  • Disappointing image processing.
  • Narrow viewing angle.
6.9 TV Shows

The Roku Plus Series TV is decent for TV shows. It has great SDR brightness and good reflection handling, so it's bright enough to handle glare in bright rooms, and you don't even have to worry about closing the blinds. Unfortunately, its viewing angle is inadequate, so this is a poor choice for watching shows in a wide seating arrangement. Plus, the TV's image processing is disappointing, so lower-resolution shows from DVDs or shows from streaming services don't look as good as they could.

Pros
  • Bright enough to fight glare in SDR.
  • Good reflection handling.
Cons
  • Disappointing image processing.
  • Narrow viewing angle.
7.2 Sports

The Roku Plus Series TV is satisfactory for sports. It has good reflection handling and easily gets bright enough in SDR to handle glare from bright rooms. It has a great response time, so there's minimal blur when watching fast-moving sports. Unfortunately, the TV has an inadequate viewing angle, so it's a poor choice for a wide viewing arrangement. The TV also has a visible pink hue on the left side of the screen with large areas of bright, uniform color, which is noticeable in certain sports, like hockey.

Pros
  • Bright enough to fight glare in SDR.
  • Great response time with most content.
  • Good reflection handling.
Cons
  • Disappointing image processing.
  • Some noticeable uniformity issues with bright colors.
  • Narrow viewing angle.
7.8 Video Games

The Roku Plus Series TV is a very good choice for gaming. It looks great in Game Mode, with excellent contrast, great SDR peak brightness, and a wide color gamut for a vibrant gaming experience. The TV also has good reflection handling and handles bright gaming rooms well. Gaming on this TV is extremely responsive due to its fantastic input lag and great response time, although its response time is much slower in dark scenes, leading to black smearing. Unfortunately, the TV is a bit light on gaming features, as it doesn't support VRR or 1440p and is limited to a 60Hz refresh rate.

Pros
  • Excellent contrast for deep blacks.
  • Bright enough to fight glare in SDR.
  • Very low input lag.
  • Great response time with most content.
  • Good reflection handling.
Cons
  • Disappointing image processing.
  • Limited gaming features.
  • Slow response time in dark scenes, leading to some black smearing.
7.2 HDR Movies

The Roku Plus Series TV is decent for watching movies. The TV's contrast is excellent, so dark scenes look great in a dark room. Its HDR brightness is adequate; not enough to make highlights pop, but enough to provide a pleasant HDR viewing experience. The TV's color accuracy is decent with minimal calibration, so you only need to hire a calibrator if you care about accurate colors. Unfortunately, the TV's image processing capabilities are limited; movies from streaming platforms have noticeable compression artifacts in dark scenes, and it barely sharpens low-resolution movies from DVDs when upscaling them.

Pros
  • Excellent contrast for deep blacks.
  • Great PQ EOTF tracking.
  • Very colorful due to its wide color gamut.
Cons
  • Disappointing image processing.
  • Doesn't remove judder from most sources.
  • Small highlights don't stand out versus the rest of the scene.
7.9 HDR Gaming

The Roku Plus Series TV is very good for playing HDR-enabled games. Its HDR brightness in Game Mode is acceptable but not great, but as the TV has an excellent contrast ratio, it still looks very good in a dark room. The TV's input lag is fantastic, so your inputs are quick and responsive, and its response time is great overall, so there's minimal blur in fast-moving games. However, its response time is noticeably worse in dark content, so this isn't the best TV for horror games. The TV is also rather limited regarding gaming features, as it doesn't support VRR or 1440p and is limited to a 60Hz refresh rate.

Pros
  • Excellent contrast for deep blacks.
  • Very low input lag.
  • Great response time with most content.
  • Very colorful due to its wide color gamut.
Cons
  • Small highlights don't stand out versus the rest of the scene.
  • Limited gaming features.
  • Slow response time in dark scenes, leading to some black smearing.
7.6 PC Monitor

The Roku Plus Series TV is a good TV to use as a PC monitor. It has great SDR peak brightness and good reflection handling, so it handles bright offices well. Unfortunately, its viewing angle is inadequate, so the sides of the screen look washed out when you're sitting close to the TV. Still, the TV does proper chroma 4:4:4 with low input lag to give you the sharpest text alongside a very responsive experience, helped by the TV's great response time. Just make sure to avoid setting your apps and operating system to dark mode, as the TV's response time is noticeably slower when coming out of dark states.

Pros
  • Bright enough to fight glare in SDR.
  • Displays proper chroma 4:4:4 with the lowest input lag.
  • Great response time with most content.
  • Good reflection handling.
Cons
  • Some noticeable uniformity issues with bright colors.
  • Slow response time in dark scenes, leading to some black smearing.
  • Narrow viewing angle.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

We tested the 65-inch Roku Plus Series TV (65R6A5R), but it's also available in 55 and 75-inch sizes. The TV is exclusive to Best Buy in the United States, so it doesn't have any variants.

Compared To Other TVs

The Roku Plus Series QLED is a great TV at its price and competes with the Hisense U6/U6K and the TCL Q6/Q650G QLED. Overall, the Roku Plus is a bit light on features and has disappointing image processing, but it has the best image quality in its price range. It's especially interesting for users who only watch high-quality 4k content, which requires minimal processing, and for gamers who don't care about 120Hz gaming and VRR, as it has extremely low input lag and a great response time.

See our recommendations for the best budget TVs, the best smart TVs, and the best 4k TVs.

Roku Select Series
24" 32" 40" 43" 50" 55" 65" 75"

The Roku Plus Series QLED is better than the Roku Select Series. The Plus has local dimming, so it has a much better contrast for deeper blacks. It also gets much brighter than the Select in HDR, with a noticeably wider color gamut, enough for a satisfying HDR experience. The Select has a wider viewing angle, making it better suited for large parties or if you like to move around the TV, and it's much more accurate before being calibrated. It's also available in significantly more sizes than the Plus.

Hisense U6/U6K
55" 65" 75"

The Hisense U6/U6K and Roku Plus Series QLED are very similar TVs, with little to differentiate them. Still, the Hisense has a slight edge due to being much more accurate after changing only a few settings, and it has a few more features than the Roku, like VRR support and removing 24p Judder from more sources. The Hisense TV also sharpens upscaled content much better than the Roku TV. Still, the Roku does look a bit better than the Hisense, as it gets just a tad brighter, has slightly better contrast with much better black uniformity, and has a faster response time for less blur with fast-moving sports and games.

TCL Q6/Q650G QLED
55" 65" 75" 85"

The TCL Q6/Q650G QLED and Roku Plus Series QLED are comparable TVs with different strengths and weaknesses. The TCL is generally the better gaming TV, as it can do 1080p and 1440p @ 120Hz with resolution halving and has a matching wide VRR range. However, the Roku is the better-looking TV of the two, with much better contrast due to its local dimming feature, a wider color gamut, superior color accuracy, and a faster response time for less blur in fast-moving content.

Hisense A6/A65K
43" 50" 55" 65" 75"

The Hisense A6/A65K and Roku Plus Series QLED are comparable TVs with different capabilities, although the Roku is better overall. The Hisense has more features, with VRR support, better image processing, and a motion interpolation feature. It can remove 24p judder from more sources. Still, the Roku just looks better, as it has much better contrast and black uniformity due to its local dimming feature, gets much brighter, is more colorful, and has a faster response time for minimal blur in fast-moving content.

Samsung CU7000/CU7000D
43" 50" 55" 58" 65" 70" 75" 85"

The Roku Plus Series QLED is better than the Samsung CU7000/CU7000D. The Samsung has three advantages over the Roku: it sharpens lower-resolution content better than the Roku, supports 1440p resolutions, and removes 24p judder from more sources. The Roku is better at everything else: it has much better contrast due to its local dimming feature, is vastly brighter, has a much wider color gamut and color volume, is the more color-accurate TV of the two, and has a faster response time for less blur in fast-moving content.

Stand

The feet are basic, but they support the TV well. They're wide-set, so you'll need a wide TV table if you're not planning on wall-mounting it.

Footprint of the 65" stand: 52.2" x 12.8". The feet raise the screen about 3.9" above the table, so pretty much any soundbar fits in front of it without blocking the screen.

Design
Back
Wall Mount VESA 400x300

The back is plain, most of it being flat with raised lines, with a raised middle section on the bottom where the inputs are. As all inputs are near the center of the TV, they're hard to reach when the TV is wall-mounted, although the side-facing ports are slightly easier to access than the bottom-facing ones. The TV has a tie wrap clip on the TV for the power cable, and comes with an additional clip that you can set on either foot for further cable management.

The TV has an excellent color gamut, displaying a wide range of colors with HDR content.

The Roku Plus TV has decent accuracy after changing just a few settings. Its color accuracy is great overall, with minor accuracy errors in yellows, blues, and whites. Its color temperature is a bit warm but still good overall. Unfortunately, its white balance is mediocre; red is overrepresented in brighter whites, giving them a slightly reddish hue. As for gamma, it's almost exactly on the 2.2 target for moderately lit rooms, which is great.

The Roku Plus TV supports most common resolutions up to 4k @ 60Hz, although, unfortunately, it doesn't support 1440p. It displays chroma 4:4:4 signals properly at all of its supported resolutions, essential for clear text from a desktop PC.

Unfortunately, this TV can't passthrough advanced DTS audio formats over eARC, which is disappointing as many UHD Blu-ray discs use these as their main audio track. It also can't pass any 5.1 audio formats through optical, like DTS 5.1 and Dolby Digital 5.1, but they work fine through ARC.

The Roku Plus has a decent frequency response. Like most TVs, there's very little bass response, with no thump or rumble. Dialogue sounds clear, even at maximum volume, with some but not excessive compression. The TV doesn't get very loud, so you'll need external speakers or a soundbar if you're in a loud environment.

This TV has good distortion performance. There's very little audible distortion at moderate listening levels, and while it does increase at maximum volume, it's still decent overall.

This TV runs version 12.5 of the Roku TV smart interface, which is very simple, with fewer animations and a simpler user interface than you'll get with more premium TVs. It's very fast, though, and quite intuitive.
