Best 75-inch TV: the list

The best 75-inch TV for for most people

Reasons to buy

+
Beautiful colours and HDR
+
Sharp 4K image
+
Superb smart TV platform

Reasons to avoid

-
Not particularly bright
-
Glass is reflective, which may cause glare
-
No HDR10+

LG’s C1 series TVs are a great lineup overall, and the 77-inch OLED model is a good place to start with 70+ inch TVs. This 4K TV has fantastic image quality that won’t disappoint, even with the most high-definition movies and games. It’s a significant improvement over previous generations of LG screens, especially in color quality. 

The OLED 77-inch C1 comes with 4 HDMI 2.1 ports, which is great for those who want to connect streaming devices and game consoles. The Alpha A9 Gen.4 processor will make the most of the 4K screen for gaming on next-gen consoles like the PS5. The built-in audio quality is impressive, so you’ll have a great experience even without a soundbar. 

While any TV in the 75-inch range will be relatively expensive, the 77-inch C1 offers some of the best value among today’s models, thanks to a series of price drops. You get incredible performance at a fair price. The C1 stands up well against other models, so it is likely to remain a top choice for years to come. However, the glass screen can be quite reflective, especially in sunny or well-lit rooms. OLED screens are infamous for their less-than-ideal brightness in sunny rooms, so you may need to be strategic about positioning this TV relative to windows and lights. If you can control the lights, though, it's a truly fantastic home theater experience, as our full LG C1 review explains.

2. Sony XR75X90J

The best mid-range 75-inch LED TV

Reasons to buy

Bold HDR pictures
+
Great upscaling and motion

HDMI 2.1 connectivity

Reasons to avoid

A tad reflective

VRR coming in an update

The Sony X90J series is made to deliver great-value TV thrills, finding the ideal balance between price and image quality. Its full-array backlight delivers really bright Dolby Vision images that provide the visual pop you want from HDR, while Sony's famous image processing excellent is on display: it's particularly good at upscaling from HD to 4K, at making SDR content look more like HDR, and the way it deals with motion is second to none.

Despite sounding like one, it doesn't come with the same price as a high-end TV, though. Sony has saved money by making it less bright overall than the high-end LCD models we've featured here, and it also suffers from more blooming of light from bright to dark areas than more expensive TVs – but against TVs of the same price, it's just excellent.

It's one of the cheaper TVs to include HDMI 2.1 (on two of its four HDMI ports), which means it's future-proofed well, and is ideal for next-gen gaming.

The smart TV platform is Google TV, which is a major improvement for usability on the Android TV platform Sony used to use, but is still extremely comprehensive when it comes to what streaming services are available. The speaker setup is also impressive, matching together multiple drivers for a clearer presentation. You can read our full Sony X90J review for more.

No Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos

The power of Samsung's UK TV tech really gets to stretch its legs in its 75-inch version. It's the most elite QLED TV in Samsung's 2021 range, and uses the new 'Neo QLED' panel type, which features Mini-LED technology – this is exactly what it sounds like, where thousands and thousands of tiny LEDs are used to provide the light behind the pixels, which means the screen can be ultra-thin, ultra-bright, and individual parts of the screen can also be dimmed with ultra-precision to provide amazing contrast between light and dark.

What you get is simply incredible HDR performance that can make things look more real than ever when they're going for realism, and more stylish and vibrant than ever when they're not. And then there's the 8K resolution: the AI-based upscaling makes 4K video look sharper and clearer than any 4K TV has managed at this size so far, so the extra pixels are genuinely worthwhile.

It's also great for other features, including HDMI 2.1 connectivity for next-gen gaming features, one of the best smart TV platforms available today, plus the use of Samsung's One Connect box, which shifts all of the ports and processing to a separate box connected by a single cable, so it it looks super-tidy when wall mounted. You can read more in our full Samsung QN900A review.

The downsides are that it doesn't include Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos support, which is normal for Samsung, but is frustrating – it will pass Atmos out to a sound system from its built-in apps, though. This is a very expensive TV, but it's had some giant price cuts since its launch, and is a good buy today as a result.

The best 75-inch OLED TV for picture quality, but it doesn't come cheap

Reasons to buy

+
Best-ever OLED TV brightness
+
Great for features and streaming
+
We love the “gallery” design

Reasons to avoid

-
No HDR10+
-
No stand included

This is LG's brightest ever OLED TV, using an OLED Evo next-gen panel with 'Brightness Booster Max' technology. It's an immediately noticeable improvement, and when combined with OLED's near-infinite black levels, it makes for a bigger and better high-contrast HDR presentation overall.

LG's latest generation of image processing is here as well. The new models better at handling colors, offers more realistic detail, better definition of foreground and background objects, and features top-notch motion processing for sports.

As our LG G2 review says, pictures on this TV, regardless of whether you’re watching TV or gaming, are consistently and jaw-droppingly spectacular.

As is the norm with LG now, the G2 is practically flawless for other features. All four of its HDMI ports are ready for HDMI 2.1, making it totally future-proof. Its smart TV platform is top-notch, both for ease of use and available features and services.

The difference in quality from the older LG C1 is major and clear – however, so is the price difference, which is why this doesn't knock the C1 from the top spot. That will still be the better buy for a lot of people. The one other possible issue with the LG G2 is that it doesn't come with any stand in the box. It's designed to be wall-mounted (and it does come with a special flush mount). This might actually suit most people looking to buy such a big TV, but you can buy some feet separately, or even a special 'Gallery' floor stand. if you don’t want to wall mount-it.

TCL 6-series 55-inch TV on white backgroundT3 Approved badge

The best 75-inch TV for elite mini-LED tech at a lower price

Reasons to buy

+
Great color from QLED, mini-LED display
+
Excellent Roku smart TV software

Reasons to avoid

-
Audio isn't the best
-
Minimal motion controls

The TCL 6-Series Roku 75-inch TV offers consistently high performance at a mid-range price. This smart TV is on par with some of the most premium models on the market for a significantly lower cost. The QLED mini-LED display is sharp and vibrant with strong max-brightness. So, this is a great choice if you don’t want to deal with a dimmer OLED display or want your TV in a brighter room. 

The HDR on the 6-Series is fantastic, as we noted in our TCL 6-Series R635 review. If you want to play games on next-gen consoles or watch movies in 4K, it will not disappoint. Like other TVs here, TCL has a built-in Game Mode that optimizes the display’s performance for consoles like the Playstation 5 or Xbox Series X. 

The 6-Series also has some nice quality-of-life features that increase the value even more. For example, the stand is designed to keep cables out of the way, giving your high-end TV a clean look. Additionally, the Roku interface is easy to use and offers quick access to all major video and streaming apps. It will be familiar for many users already, but the Roku ecosystem is easy to navigate for new gamers.

7. Hisense 75U7G

A great cheaper 75-inch TV with total HDR support (and great gaming features)

Reasons to buy

+
Top-of-the-line color and clarity
+
Very low lag
+
Good brightness range

Reasons to avoid

-
Motion smoothing can be too much if left on
-
Dark scenes can lose clarity

The Hisense U7G is a fantastic choice if you’re looking for a premium gaming experience. This 4K 75-inch TV has a quantum ULED display that delivers excellent color and clarity for the price. The 120Hz refresh rate ensures compatibility with even the most demanding games and consoles. Connectivity isn’t a problem, either, since the U7G supports HDMI 2.1.

The audio performance on the U7G is stellar, with Dolby Atmos for an immersive gaming experience. You'll also get Dolby Vision and HDR10+ support, which is an extremely valuable combo even among high-end TVs. The build quality is reliable, and the U7G is compatible with most mainstream wall mounts for those who don’t want to use the included legs. Even if you’re not a gamer, the U7G is a top-performer among 75-inch smart TVs and will work great for everyday TV and movies. 

The only major drawback for some users is the motion smoothing. The U7G has a fantastic image quality, but the motion smoothing may be too intense for some users’ liking – though the 120Hz screen means you can turn it off for movies without experiencing judder. 

This 75-inch TV also doesn’t get quite as bright as some of the other models on this list. Some users have also reported that the U7G’s display begins to lose detail and clarity in darker scenes. This won’t impact your overall viewing experience much, but may be a deal-breaker when it comes to certain games and movies. But it's great for the price overall, as our Hisense U7G review explains.

8. TCL Series-4 75S435

The best super-budget 75-inch TV, often on sale for less than $1,000

Reasons to buy

+
Great price for the quality
+
Accurate color and contrast
+
Excellent Roku interface

Reasons to avoid

-
Sound quality could be better
-
Does not support Dolby Vision
-
Image quality is less than premium

The TCL Series-4 75-inch TV is perfect for the average viewer who’s just looking for a generous screen size. It offers a 4K Ultra HD display and even supports HDR10. The color quality and contrast are consistently sharp and accurate. Plus, the lag time on the Series-4 is fairly low, so it can even handle high-performance gaming well. 

Many viewers will already be familiar with the built-in Roku interface, which is one of the best around for streaming and apps. Roku is easy to navigate and seamlessly integrates Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, and most other major streaming and video services. 

Unfortunately, the Series-4 has less-than-ideal audio quality. The built-in speakers were one area where TCL seems to have cut back on quality to lower the price. It won’t be that noticeable to many. However, those who want better audio can find plenty of budget-friendly soundbars that will work with the Series-4. The image quality can’t compete with the other models on this list, but if you’re looking for a solid 75-inch TV and don’t want to spend $1,200+ on it, you can’t go wrong with the Series-4.

Best 75-inch TV: Is this the right size for you?

Before investing in a 75-inch TV, you’ll want to take a serious look at the space you’re hoping to put it in. A 75-inch TV will take up most of the wall in the average living room.

So you need to measure the available space, and be aware that a screen this size will dominate the room. The good news is these days there’s very little bezel, while a depth of 3-5cm makes installation easier. Wall-mounting is the best option, because it takes up the least space – just make sure you use a solid bracket, and check your wall can actually take the weight! We've got a guide to the best TV wall mounts.

Best 75-inch TV: What to look for

The 75-inch HDR TV market is dominated by large-screen 4K OLED TVs. There are also some cheaper 4K LCD TVs as well as premium 8K QLED TVs. In general, these screens tend to be high-end models, although not always. You should be looking for state-of-the-art image processing with features like AI-enhancements, extensive HDR support, Dolby Atmos immersive audio, comprehensive smart platforms, and plenty of gaming features – many of the best gaming TVs have 75-inch options.

Processing capabilities are especially important at this size, since any imperfections in the picture will be pretty obvious. That means good upscaling of HD and SD content is vital.

This is a size where going 8K should be a serious consideration, since these TVs are  big enough to make those extra pixels worthwhile. Even the best 8K TVs may not be able to make 4K content look like true 8K footage, but it can make it look even better than 4K, so there are real benefits.

Some of these TVs offer impressive built-in sound systems, which is a great feature for those who prefer not to purchase an external soundbar. You may want to consider investing in a one of the best soundbars or best surround sound systems, though. They will boost your audio quality to match the sharpness of your premium screen.
