Our advice here at CNET iswhen it comes to . Although it can be difficult to find space for such a giant TV, it’s worth the price and the room. Even better is that it no longer costs an outrageous amount of money. The best 75-inch TVs are surprisingly affordable today.
The list below represents the best TVs I’ve reviewedI compare them side by side to see which one is worth buying. You have already reviewed a file In 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 its mini-LED technology and well-implemented full local dimming that helps it run circles around any other TV at this price. It improves on the previous R635 series with improved gaming additions and a new center stand that you can lift up to make room for the amplifier. Finally, the Roku TV operating system is our favourite.
Note that in addition to the R635, which this TV replaces, other Series 6 versions were released in 2021 and are still on sale. The R646 series uses the Google TV operating system but has similar specifications to the R655 models reviewed here. The R648 series has 8K resolution and is much more expensive.

The C2 represents the pinnacle of image quality at an admittedly high price, but it’s not too crazy. It beats any non-OLED TV on this list, including the Samsung QN90B below, with its perfect black levels, unparalleled contrast, and gorgeous off-angle viewing. It also has great gaming features, making it the perfect companion for Xbox Series X or S, PlayStation 5, or both. The C2 comes in a variety of sizes as well, though the larger models are more expensive.
Improvements over the previous C1 model include a carbon fiber chassis for lighter weight—the 77-inch version we reviewed weighs 60 pounds with its stand, compared to 80 pounds for the 77-inch C1—plus some additional tweaks to Game Mode and a new “always ready” feature. .

The Vizio MQX is one of the cheapest TVs that features full local dimming, allowing it to reproduce TV shows, movies, and games with just enough contrast and pop to do HDR justice. The MQX has fewer darkening zones than more expensive TVs like the TCL 6-Series — 42 by 75 inches — but that’s more than enough for excellent overall picture quality, with bright highlights, dark black levels, strong contrast and accurate color.
Unlike last year’s M7, the MQX has a true 120Hz refresh rate, which allows for compatibility with 4K/120Hz signals from game consoles like the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, and it worked well in our tests. Vizio supports both of the major HDR formats, HDR10 and Dolby Vision, in the M Series. If you can’t save enough for a TCL 6-Series or Hisense U8H but want a better picture than the 4-Series, the Vizio MQX is an excellent happy medium.

The TCL 4-Series Roku TV’s picture quality 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 slight enough that you already own them to make them stay side by side to notice anything. Absolutely. The 4-Series lacks Dolby Vision, Bluetooth connectivity, and AMD FreeSync with a variable refresh rate, all of which Vizio offers.
The 4-Series’ advantage over Vizio is that it comes with the excellent Roku Smart TV system built-in. This makes it a great choice for those looking for a one-stop smart TV solution, without the need to add an external streaming device. It’s also generally less expensive than Vizio’s.

QLED with Mini-LED
Are you looking for a high-end TV with amazing picture quality, but don’t want an OLED screen? Samsung QN90B is your best bet. This TV uses QLED TV technology that is enhanced by mini-LED for a brighter picture than any other OLED TV. OLED’s stunning contrast still wins our side-by-side tests, but the QN90B QLED display comes closer than ever.

Among the mid-priced models, we liked the TCL 6 series a little better in a side-by-side comparison, but Hisense is a strong contender. The excellent picture quality is underpinned by best-in-class brightness that improves picture quality in a bright room and makes HDR movies, TV shows and games really stand out. It’s actually brighter than the TCL with better contrast, but the slightly sharper picture than the TCL gave it the edge overall. Hisense uses Google TV instead of Roku, and unlike TCL, the U8H includes an ATSC 3.0 tuner. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with either.

When we compared the best budget TVs side by side, Vizio’s V-Series picture quality clearly emerged as the leader of the pack. Vizio delivered 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 smoother gaming. Vizio’s biggest shortcoming is its smart TV platform, Vizio SmartCast. It’s cluttered, slow, and full of ads for platforms like Tubi and Kidoodle TV. 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 anyone else, and one of the most popular is the Q60 series. Its QLED display’s sleek design stands out compared to the other TVs on this list — although the ultra-thin OLED models are sleeker — and it offers better features, picture quality, and size than models like the TCL 4-Series and Sony X80K. All of the TVs listed in this article are superior values, but if you want a Samsung TV and can’t afford the QN90A, this is a great option.
Note that the 2021 Q60A version is still on sale and could be even 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 the 75-inch TV
It depends on the size of your room, seating distance 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. If you sit close to the screen, you don’t need a large TV to get the best experience. For maximum theatrical effect, according to THX and SMPTE, you need to be between 7.5 and 10 feet from a 75-inch screen, though many viewers will find it more comfortable to sit a little farther away than that. Every 75-inch TV has 4K resolution, and if you have 20/20 vision, you can sit about 4.5 feet from the screen and still not distinguish individual pixels.
What is the width of a 75 inch TV?
Most 75-inch TVs are between 65 and 67 inches wide. Since the frames around newer TV screens are usually quite narrow, the width of a 75-inch TV isn’t much different. Models with ultra-thin bezels are on the lower end—the 75-inch Samsung QN90A is 65.7 inches wide, for example, while the 75-inch TCL 4-Series with a slightly thicker bezel is 66.1 inches wide. If you don’t plan to mount the TV on the wall, you generally want the piece of furniture supporting the TV to measure at least as wide as the TV itself, preferably a few inches wider. Refer to the manufacturer’s website for the exact dimensions of a specific 75-inch or 77-inch TV.
How much does a 75 inch TV weigh?
A 75-inch TV weighs between 75 and 100 pounds with its stand, but this varies greatly by type of TV. The 77-inch LG C2 carbon fiber TV weighs 60 pounds with the stand, for example, while the 75-inch Samsung QN90B weighs 98.8 pounds with the stand. Removing the mount allows you to mount the TV to the wall and reduce its weight (mounts can weigh up to 20 lbs). Shipping weight (box, accessories, etc.) adds another 10 to 20 pounds. Refer to the manufacturer’s website for the exact weights for a specific 75-inch TV.
