Here at CNET, we encourage it Go as big as you can afford when it comes to them best tv. While it can be difficult to find space for such a mammoth TV, they are well worth the price and space. Even better, they don’t cost a lot of money anymore. The best 75-inch TVs are surprisingly affordable these days.
The list below represents the best televisions that I have reviewed CNET’s testing lab, where I compare them side by side to see which one is most worth buying. I actually checked them out 65 inch sizes in the series for most of the models listed below, but the 75- and 77-inch versions are basically identical beyond screen size.
The Best 75 Inch TVs
Here are the best 75 inch TVs of 2023.
For the past five years, the TCL 6 series has been our favorite TV for the money, and the latest version – also known as the R655 series – is no exception. This TV has an excellent picture thanks to mini-LED technology and well-implemented full-array local dimming that helps it orbit almost every other TV at this price point. It improves on the previous R635 series with upgraded gaming extras and a new center stand that you can raise to make room for a soundbar. Finally, the Roku TV operating system is our hands-down favorite.
Note that alongside the R635 that this TV replaces, other versions of the 6 Series have been released in 2021 and are still available in stores. The R646 series uses the Google TV operating system, but otherwise has similar specs to the R655 models reviewed here. The R648 series has 8K resolution and is significantly more expensive.

The C2 represents the pinnacle of image quality at an admittedly high but not too crazy price point. It beats every non-OLED TV on this list, including the Samsung QN90B below, with its perfect black levels, unbeatable contrast and superb viewing from an angle. It also has excellent gaming features, making it the perfect companion for an Xbox Series X or S, PlayStation 5, or both. The C2 also comes in a variety of sizes, although the larger models are expensive.
Improvements over the earlier C1 include carbon-fiber construction for lighter weight — the 77-inch version we tested weighs 60 pounds with the stand, compared to 80 pounds for the 77-inch C1 — as well as some additional tweaks to Game Mode and a new “Always Ready” feature.

The Vizio MQX is one of the most affordable TVs with full array local dimming, allowing it to play TV shows, movies and games with enough contrast and pop to be HDR worthy. The MQX has fewer dimming zones than pricier TVs like the TCL 6 series – 42 for the 75-inch size – but that’s more than enough for excellent overall picture quality, with bright highlights, dark black levels, punchy contrast and accurate colour.
Unlike last year’s M7, the MQX has a true 120Hz refresh rate, allowing for compatibility with 4K/120Hz signals from gaming consoles like the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, and it worked well in our testing. Vizio supports both important HDR formats, HDR10 and Dolby Vision, in the M series. If you can’t save up for the TCL 6-series or the Hisense U8H but want a better picture than the 4-series, the Vizio MQX is an excellent happy medium.

Yes (Roku TV)
The picture quality of the TCL 4 series Roku TV was a step behind the Vizio V series (model V755M-K03, listed below) in our budget TV test, but the differences between the two are small enough to really show having to line them up next to each other to even notice anything. The 4 Series lacks Dolby Vision, Bluetooth connectivity and AMD FreeSync with a variable refresh rate, which the Vizio has it all.
The advantage of the 4 Series over the Vizio is that it comes with the excellent built-in Roku Smart TV system. That makes them a great choice for anyone looking for a one-stop smart TV solution without having to add an external streaming device. It’s also generally less expensive than the Vizio.

QLED with mini LED
Are you looking for a high-end TV with spectacular picture quality, but don’t want OLED? The Samsung QN90B is your best choice. This TV uses QLED TV technology complemented by Mini-LED for a brighter picture than any OLED TV. The spectacular OLED contrast still prevailed in our comparison tests, but the QN90B’s QLED screen comes closer than ever.

Among the mid-range models, we liked the TCL 6 series a little better in our side-by-side comparison, but this Hisense is a strong contender. Its excellent picture quality is anchored by the top-notch brightness, which improves picture quality in bright rooms and really makes HDR TV movies, shows and games stand out. It’s actually brighter than the TCL with better contrast, but the TCL’s slightly more accurate image gave it the edge overall. The Hisense uses Google TV instead of Roku, and unlike the TCL, the U8H packs an ATSC 3.0 tuner. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with either one.

When we compared the best budget TVs side-by-side, the picture quality of Vizio’s V-Series was the clear winner. The Vizio offered the most balanced and accurate picture during our comparisons, and it comes with some useful extras like Dolby Vision support, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth compatibility, and variable refresh rate for potentially smoother gaming. The Vizio’s biggest downside is its Vizio SmartCast smart TV platform. It’s crowded, slow, and littered with ads for platforms like Tubi and Kidoodle TV. However, even when you factor in the cost of adding a new streaming device, the V Series remains the best overall entry-level TV we’ve tested.

Samsung is the brand that sells more TVs than any other and one of the most popular is the Q60 series. Its slim QLED screen design stands out from the other TVs on this list – although the ultra-thin OLED models are slimmer – and it offers better features, picture quality and more sizes than models like the TCL 4 Series and Sony X80K. The TVs listed in this article are all worth considering, but if you want a Samsung TV and can’t afford the QN90A, this is a solid choice.
Note that the 2021 version, the Q60A, is still on sale and may be cheaper than the Q60B. The newer version measured brighter in our tests, but if you want the best deal, stick with the Q60A if it’s still available.

Frequently asked questions about 75 inch TVs
It depends on your room size, seat spacing and personal taste. For a large living room or den, a 75-inch TV is generally excellent, but it’s too big for smaller living rooms or most bedrooms. Sitting closer to the screen means you don’t need as large a TV for the best experience. For maximum theatrical impact, you should be between 7.5 and 10 feet from a 75-inch screen, according to THX and SMPTE, although many viewers find it more comfortable to sit a little further back. Any 75-inch TV has 4K resolution, and if you have 20/20 vision you can sit up to 4.5 feet from the screen and still not see individual pixels.
How wide is a 75 inch TV?
Most 75 inch TVs are between 65 and 67 inches wide. Because the bezels around newer TV screens are usually quite narrow, 75-inch TV widths don’t vary much. Models with very slim bezels are on the lower end – the 75-inch Samsung QN90A, for example, measures 65.7 inches wide, while the slightly thicker-framed 75-inch TCL 4 series is 66.1 inches wide. Unless you plan to mount the TV on the wall, you generally want the piece of furniture that supports the TV to be at least as wide as the TV itself, and preferably a few inches wider. The exact dimensions of a specific 75″ or 77″ TV can be found on the manufacturer’s website.
How much does a 75 inch TV weigh?
A 75-inch TV weighs between 75 and 100 pounds with the stand, but this varies significantly depending on the type of TV. For example, the 77-inch LG C2 carbon fiber TV weighs 60 pounds with the stand, while the 75-inch Samsung QN90B with the stand weighs 98.8 pounds. Removing the stand allows you to wall mount the TV and reduce its weight (stands can weigh up to 20 pounds). Shipping weight (box, accessories, etc.) adds another 10 to 20 pounds. The exact weight of a specific 75 inch TV can be found on the manufacturer’s website.
