15 best TVs in 2017

Your successful purchase

Such are the realities of domestic retail, that new TVs from leading manufacturers in stores often appear after a long and not very spectacular pause. True, this same fact becomes the cause of their relevance throughout almost the entire next season, and sometimes even longer. If so, we bring to your attention the rating of the best TVs in 2017 today and even with a “target” for the future.

What are the criteria for choosing the best TV?

In order not to go into a detailed listing of possible small details and characteristics, let us dwell on the fundamental ones, on which the image quality, functionality and, ultimately, user comfort and the impression that the TV will produce on it depends.

Screen diagonal

It's all simple. The desired option is selected based on the size of the room, the personal wishes of the consumer and to a certain extent the capabilities of his wallet.


  • HD-Ready (720p) - the format is frankly old and suitable only for compact models up to 32 inches;
  • Full HD 1080p - still the most popular and widely available standard;
  • Ultra HD (2160r), also known as 4K, is the “high bar” of high definition for most modern TVs.

HDR support

Extended dynamic range is an opportunity to bring the image on the screen as close as possible to the reality accessible to human vision. A lot of details and shades, the broadest contrast in the shadows and in the bright areas - it is better to see once than to try to understand in words.

Display type

  • LED. Some naively believe that LCD is an old type of matrix, and modern is LED. However, the latter option implies the same LCD base, but with a more efficient (bright, economical and less space) LED backlight.
  • QLED. Advanced development from Samsung. Actually, at the moment - this is still the same LCD-matrix, but due to the use of special filters on quantum dots, brighter and more saturated colors are formed.
  • Nano Cell. LG offered its alternative to QLED with the same pleasant “consequences” for the image, only Nano materials are used not as a basis for the filter, but directly in the matrix.
  • OLED. The most effective, but also the most expensive technology. Actually, there is no backlight. The matrix consists of more than 8 million organic self-highlighting pixels that turn on and off completely when an electric current passes. The result is infinite contrast and perfect black depth.

The best TVs of 2017 are in our rating, compiled from reviews of experts and ordinary customers.

Sony KD-49XE7096
78 999

In reality, only the famous Japanese brand is capable of resisting the “Koreans” with their huge model range and omnipresent advertising.

LG 49UJ750V
48 720

When you need a good TV with 4K resolution, decent performance and decent image quality at an adequate price, there is a reason to choose the 7th series from LG. Model 49UJ750V can be considered optimal, but if you need another diagonal, the options are also 43, 55, 65 inches.

Panasonic TX-50EXR700
60 890

Televisions from Panasonic - a kind of phenomenon in the domestic retail. They are really good and reliable, they are distinguished by an excellent image and high-quality assembly, but the sellers do not really "love" them for not pricing much and it is more profitable to extol products with high margins from other brands. But from the point of view of a competent buyer - the profit is obvious.

The TX-50EXR700 is a strong middling among the best 4K Ultra HD TVs of 2017. The MVA matrix with Edge LED backlight has quite a decent level of black and good contrast. The refresh rate is standard - 60 Hz, the image enhancement index is 1600 Hz.

Samsung UE55MU6100U
53 290

One of the most popular budget TVs in 2017 from Samsung. Good diagonal, nice thin design, convenient Smart features and all this “in the set” with decent image quality and quite adequate price. Only domestic production can be included in the negative, but there are simply no other options for this brand, and in order for assembly flaws not to become a problem, you just need to carefully check the copy if you buy it.

Ultra HD 4K resolution is in itself a pledge of high-quality and clear images, but the latter becomes even more attractive under the influence of proprietary technologies: Dynamic Crystal Color and PurColour - natural and vibrant colors, HDR - bright and realistic image, UHD Dimming - contrast and detail. The video processor allows you to scale the resolution to UHD, the declared image quality indicator PQI - 1000.

The standard “smart” format Smart TV in 2017 for Samsung is OS Tizen 3.0 with Smart Hub interface. The sound is not perfect, but quite comfortable, and to improve it is possible to connect external acoustics by “optics”.

Main advantages:
  • One Remote with voice control;
  • The current Smart View application for collaboration with mobile devices;
  • Auto Motion Plus for better transmission of dynamic scenes;
  • Analog and digital tuners (DVB-T2 / C / S2);
  • Eco sensor.
  • Visible screen lights;
  • 60 Hz matrix.

Like the design. Yes, and shows the TV very well. I have already used Smart from Samsung, the current Tizen is a bit damp, but quite smart and stable. Through the home media server (HMS) "through the air" not very heavy films go normally.

Samsung QE65Q9FAM
186 500

Samsung's flagship 2017 is an innovative QLED TV with quantum dot technology.

LG 55SJ930V
74 310

Excellent TV, positioned by LG as Super UHD (4K). Models with an OLED display are not affordable for everyone. But such a high-tech device, albeit with a screen based on the LCD matrix, but not the usual IPS, but created using the Nano Cell technology, is quite affordable for a wide range of consumers.

Being the latest evolution of LED TV, the LG 55SJ930V shows excellent results in terms of color quality (here they are Nano particles). Viewing angles are as wide as possible without distortion, which means that it is possible to arrange viewing even by a large company with complete comfort for all participants.

9.7 / 10
Real respect for LG. They do not try to repeat the successes of others, but try to do it their own way, better and cheaper than their competitors. This is in the Samsung garden with their quantum dots at an exorbitant price.

Best Premium 4K OLED TVs

428 040

This model of the premium segment LG SIGNATURE is the flagship of the OLED TV line of a Korean brand, and in general for 2017, perhaps, out of competition. The product is truly revolutionary and high-tech. You can say everything is fine in it:

  • Luxurious ultra slim design. The panel is fastened almost flush with the wall (4 mm) by means of magnets and is connected to the soundbar, in which the main electronics and interfaces are concentrated, with a flat cable. Thus, the effect of "picture on the wall."
  • Excellent image. OLED display with 4K resolution is not just great clarity, but also almost perfect black level, infinite contrast and an incredible color palette. LG's proprietary Active HDR technology (HLG, HDR 10, Dolby Vision) provides premium content viewing with seemingly unattainable realism.
  • Great sound. Accurate and surround audio with a cinema effect is available thanks to Dolby Atmos® support.

The W7 series in the domestic market is represented by two diagonals, 65 and 77. The first option is already very expensive, and the second is a lot of the chosen ones, since it is almost three times more expensive than the “smaller brother”.

Main advantages:
  • Excellent image quality with perfect viewing angles;
  • Digital tuner for receiving terrestrial, cable and satellite broadcasting;
  • Full Smart on webOS 3.5;
  • Magic Remote with scroll wheel;
  • Ultra slim and lightweight design - 7.6 kg.
  • Very high price tag;
  • Domestic assembly (if this can be considered a disadvantage).
10 / 10
After quite a decent 55-inch TV decided to "go broke" on a large innovative OLED. Comparing several models, we realized that there is no such thing better than this TV today. The model is simply gorgeous in all respects.
Sony KD-65A1
247 790

The Japanese company, whose unique developments in the field of improving image quality have long been known, simply could not ignore the opportunities offered by the use of OLED displays, and in 2017 presented its new flagship series Bravia A1 consisting of 3 models with diagonals 55, 65 and 77 inches.

It is worth noting that, like the main competitor, Sony uses the LG Display matrix. Those. there is some original parity. For the rest, the “Japanese” strictly follow their own concept both in design and in technical equipment. Here are just some of its manifestations:

  • The panel is equipped not with a bottom, but with a rear kick-stand (there is no gap from below) and is more likely oriented for desktop installation, although wall placement is also available;
  • TRILUMINOS Display technology creates natural, non-saturated colors;
  • The X1 Extreme processor guarantees realistic images;
  • Algorithm 4K X-Reality PRO gives maximum clarity.

With sound and wonders at all. Acoustic Surface technology involves the emission of an audio signal over the entire surface of the screen, and a subwoofer is placed in the back of the stand.

Main advantages:
  • Excellent build quality;
  • 4K HDR with support for HDR 10, Hybrid Log-Gamma and Dolby Vision;
  • Object-based HDR remaster function (improved standard quality to “like HDR”);
  • Android OS 6.0 with the ability to update;
  • Remote control with voice control.
  • The price is quite high;
  • When wall mounted, the properties of the subwoofer deteriorate.
9.8 / 10
This is not my first Sony TV, but I have never seen such an image before. Black color is just gorgeous. I will subscribe Netflix to use 4K streaming. Now LED-panels are perceived as something quite sad.
121 990

In the hierarchy of OLED TVs from the Korean brand, the E7 series is the so-called golden mean. This is not yet the flagship line of LG SIGNATURE, but in the Ultra HD Premium classification it rightfully occupies the top line, and in terms of the ratio of characteristics, price and quality, this series of TVs can be called the best. In addition, it is worth noting the exclusive premium design "Picture on Glass."

The 4K resolution OLED matrix provides superior image quality with incredible clarity and contrast. Black is almost perfect, Active HDR technology allows you to view high quality content with maximum realism. The soundbar integrated into the rack without any additional audio components is capable of transmitting sound with a cinematic effect.

And of course, the TV is equipped with the Smart TV platform, which is controlled by webOS 3.5 in the 2017 models. Navigation is easy and fast, which is facilitated by the presence of the included Magic Remote Remote.

Main advantages:
  • Excellent image and sound quality;
  • Support for Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos;
  • Maximum color range and "Ultra Brightness";
  • Reception of digital terrestrial, cable and satellite TV broadcasting;
  • A complete set of interfaces for connections.
  • TV can not be hung close to the wall (according to LG, this scheme improves the sound characteristics);
  • Of the three USB ports, only one is version 3.0.
9.7 / 10
I was waiting for this particular model, as this is the best TV in its price range. There are decent speakers with Dolby Atmos support. Design for desktop placement is just super. A picture is a lovely sight, Smart flies, the content is "enough" for anyone.


Of course, like any rating, our review may seem somewhat subjective. Indeed, for someone the best TV is the one that is cheaper, someone is committed to a particular brand and considers its products to be the best. There are users for whom such a criterion as a high-quality and realistic image is important first of all, and life is not sweet to someone without a comfortable Smart TV. And each is right in its own way. Either way, our opinion coincides with your choice or not, the main thing is that the best TV in 2017 is the one with which you will be completely satisfied.

Successful acquisitions!
