Top 2019 Full HD (1080p) LED TVs

LG 43LK6200
28 990

The honorable right to open the rating of the best TVs is provided by a fairly successful FHD model from one of the leading Korean companies. The year of launch in the 2018th series. What does not mean the loss of relevance, since the characteristics and functionality are such that not enough for one season yet, and significant innovations in this class of TVs in 2019, LG has not yet been foreseen. Actually, there’s nothing much to change.

About the properties of the screen: IPS matrix at 43 inches (there is an analogue of 49ʺ) with a resolution of 1920x1080 px, the backlight is Direct LED. Technologies for improving the original image quality: Dynamic Color (enhances saturation and brightness of 6 colors, including RGB), active HDR for HDR10 Pro content and HLG, HDR effect for 2K video in the standard range.

Smart is not just there, it is smart, convenient and understandable. Based on webOS 4.0. Available: browser, music player, "LG Channels Plus", corporate app store, control from your smartphone. It is worth highlighting the presence of "Artificial Intelligence", which recognizes and performs voice requests for access to various services.

9.6 / 10
The TV set is completely arranged in terms of price-quality-functionality. Basically, they chose the version with the Magic Remote control and artificial intelligence. It would seem, self-indulgence, and how convenient. Sometimes the OS slows down, but in general it is normal.
Sony KDL-43WF805
42 400

The Japanese brand in the class of Full HD TVs today is also represented by versions of 2018 and even earlier. Considered relatively fresh - last year. Of course, there is no question of any obsolescence. Rather, the manufacturer still supports the need of users who want to get excellent quality device at a relatively affordable price, albeit not with a 4K display.

This TV model could well be on the first line of the rating category if the fundamental criterion was the image quality and natural color rendition. According to these characteristics, Sony cannot afford anyone. The secret is in proprietary technologies X-Reality PRO, Live Color. There is also an extended range support for HDR10, HLG content. The asset is also the Malaysian assembly, which is not like the Russian in the main competitors. But the software is not always happy, there is some thoughtfulness.

In general, the line includes options for 43 and 49 inches. There is an analogue with a difference only in terms of the “upcasting”: Motionflow XR 400 Hz for WF805, 200 Hz for WF804. Honestly, the difference is difficult to notice. In any case, the original display frequency is 50/60 Hz.

Main advantages:
  • Solid design;
  • High-quality VA matrix, Edge LED backlight (hence the slim body);
  • Intellectual Smart platform on Android, Google Play Store online store;
  • Remote with voice query recognition;
  • Full tuner for all digital broadcasting standards - DVB-T2 / C / S2;
  • Hidden laying of wires.
  • High price for FHD;
  • With dynamic scenes there is not enough smoothness of the picture.
9.5 / 10
We chose Full HD TV. When comparing in the store, this model did not leave any chances to competitors, although by default sellers for some reason set the settings worse. We are rubbed crap, we can not hold. The price, however, bites, but did not regret it at all.
Samsung UE43N5570AU
29 200

Another representative of the big three of the best manufacturers of modern TVs. Brand ambitions are extremely high, the range is incredibly wide. There are quite a few options with a Full HD display, among which there is a popular version of the UE43N5570AU. There is also a larger analogue - 49 inches.

Frames at the TV thin colors "dark titanium". The resolution of the matrix is ​​1920x1080 pixels, the backlight is the Edge LED. The picture pleases with decent quality, which becomes possible due to the use of a number of technologies: Ultra Clean View analyzes the incoming signal and eliminates interference, PurColour optimizes color reproduction, HDR support allows corresponding content (HDR10) to be viewed with increased clarity and detail.

Smart platform built on OS Tizen 4.0. On board a good 4-core processor. Synchronization and sharing of content via the Samsung Cloud service is available. You can control TV from your smartphone, just as you can project an image on the big screen.

Main advantages:
  • Thin modern design New Edge;
  • The index of the quality level of the picture PQI - 500;
  • Contrast Enhancer, Natural Mode;
  • Reception of satellite, terrestrial and cable digital television signals;
  • 3 x HDMI, 2 x USB, Wi-Fi, LAN, optical audio output.
  • No 3.5 mm jack for headphones;
  • The built-in media player does not support popular DivX, XviD codecs.
9.3 / 10
Relatively simple and inexpensive "smart" Samsung. TV looks stylish, shows good. Smart like, comfortable and functional. Added widgets popular resources. The sound is average, but the size is not for a serious home theater.

The best in 2019, the 60 Hz 4K UHD LED-TVs (middle class)

LG 50UK6710
39 500

In relation to this TV will be to the place a judgment about the best ratio of quality and price. Everything is very good with functionality and characteristics, unless, of course, we are equal to expensive top versions. The design is good, thin metal frames give the screen some elegance.

In the UK6710 series 5 diagonals are available. But if the 43, 55, and 65-inch versions at the base of the display have the LG-branded IPS panel classic, then the 70ʺ and the considered 50 вариант variant are equipped with a VA matrix. This non-standard approach has a significant impact on image quality. From the positive: the contrast, color rendition is noticeably improved, black depth appears. From the negative - less viewing angles. The problem is it or not - the issue of individual perception and the location of the TV in the room.

Resolution - 3840 × 2160. The technology used to enhance the brightness of Ultra Luminance. Triple Tuner - DVB-T2 / C / S2. To connect with external devices are available: 4 x HDMI, 2 x USB, LAN, component / composite AV inputs, optical audio output. Wireless Interfaces: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth.

Main advantages:
  • Smart TV on WebOS 4.0;
  • Artificial intelligence with speech recognition, remote-pointer included;
  • 4K active HDR, creating an effect for the standard range;
  • 4-core graphics enhancement processor, upscaling up to 4K;
  • Support Wide Color Gamut.
  • Display with a standard refresh rate - 50 Hz (True Motion algorithm - 100);
  • Slightly thickened body (due to the direct LED backlight).
9.8 / 10
Great TV with real RGB, not cheap subpixel, matrix. Viewing angles are limited, as is the case with all VA panels. I do not see a problem with this, because we are looking at the screen directly, not from the side. Remote with a pointer and a microphone - a fairy tale!
Sony KD-49XF7596
53 700

The next item in the ranking of the best TVs in 2019 is an outstanding "middle peasant" from Sony. In this case, in no case can not say that it is worse than the Korean competitors of Russian production. Each of the nominees could surely occupy the top line. It all depends on the personal point of view, needs and aesthetic taste of the end user.

One thing is for sure: in terms of the quality of the picture, the naturalness of the colors, this TV is practically the best in the category. This is the whole of Sony: they took a good (RGB) IPS matrix from LG Display and made it show like the original products of the company from the Country of Morning Freshness in the class of traditional LED-models and “never dreamed of”.

It's all about unrivaled proprietary input processing technologies: 4K X-Reality ™ PRO - improved clarity, Live Color - colors, dynamic backlight algorithm to enhance contrast. Motionflow ™ XR 400 Hz is responsible for the smoothness of the picture (the real frequency is 50/60 Hz). HDR support is related to HDR10, HLG content.

Main advantages:
  • Elegant design, slim body (Edge LED backlight), legs with cable channel;
  • "Smart" features on Android, voice search;
  • Internal memory - 16 GB, 2 GB RAM;
  • Triple universal tuner, Wi-Fi (including 5 GHz), Bluetooth;
  • Build - Malaysia.
  • Not as high contrast ratio, as in models with VA matrices (but wider viewing angles);
  • By default, there are few applications on Google Play (apk. Files can be added).
9.7 / 10
Very pleased with the tv. Of course, the picture quality does not reach the level of OLED, but in its class is excellent. I like Android. Only "misguided Cossacks" and those who are too lazy to deal with the capabilities of the operating system scold him. The network has enough tips, including video.
Samsung UE50NU7400U
42 290

This TV is approximately equivalent to the above model from an inveterate competitor. The VA matrix is ​​the default Samsung chip. Design, of course, corporate. The case is also, like LG, metal, but with more elegant almost imperceptible frames and noticeably thinner, as it uses side Edge LED backlight. In the desktop stand there is a channel for hidden cabling.

The diagonal is 50ʺ. Other options are 43, 55, 65 inches. The screen is straight. The resolution is clear - 3840 × 2160 px, the color depth is even virtual, but still 10 bits (8 + FRC). The default frequency is 50/60 Hz, the Motion Rate for melting the dynamics is 100, the PQI image quality index is 1700. Mega Contrast, Dynamic Crystal Color, UHD Dimming image optimization technologies are supported. There is no predictable full-blackout.

Intellectual functions on top. Tizen 4.0 steering axle. Voice assistant available via remote control, supported by SmartThing application, wireless communication via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. Interaction with smartphones announced, but more imprisoned for branded gadgets.

Main advantages:
  • Excellent minimalist design;
  • Relatively affordable price;
  • Adequate reproduction of scenes in motion;
  • HDR technology for HDR10, HLG content;
  • Reception ground, cable and satellite "numbers".
  • Reduced video playback with the built-in player; DTS audio codec not supported;
  • Corner lights on a dark background.
9.7 / 10
Very decent TV, if you do not get hung up on watching via USB. The picture is very decent quality. Smart works like a clock. If something is missing, you can download, install. Management is very convenient, never slowed down.

The best premium TVs with a 4K UHD display in 2019

Samsung QE55Q90RAU
209 990

The category of the best premium TVs of the season 2019 opens with a novelty of the current year of release. The latest generation of Samsung’s flagship 4K QLED line is represented by several diagonals 55, 65 and 75 inches. The design is almost identical to the previous version of Q9FN: the same minimalist, in a good way, style, the thinnest, almost invisible frame. However, there is a change due to the appearance of the central pillar of a curved shape.

The display has a resolution of Ultra HD 2160p standard, the refresh rate is 120 Hz. A big step forward was the support of ultra wide viewing angles Ultra Viewing Angle, which previously was almost the main drawback in comparison with OLED panels. And let the non-self-luminous pixels, but the traditional LCD matrix with LED backlighting, last for a superb image, the black depth, the latter is not only realized with the use of Quantum Dot technology, so is also direct full matrix (Direct Full Array 16x).

The peak brightness value is an impressive 2000 nit. It is not surprising that the Quantum HDR technology is excellent. Good news for gamers: a very low image delay ensures maximum enjoyment from gaming battles on the big screen. 4.2 sound configuration (60 W).

Main advantages:
  • High-performance Quantum 4K processor;
  • Intelligent scaling function of low resolution AI Upscale;
  • Interface unit One Connect box, connected to the panel with a single thin cable;

  • Extremely ambitious price tag;
  • No Dolby Vision.
9.9 / 10
Chic design, great picture, almost perfect playback of HDR movies. Upskeyling really working. TV, of course, is not as thin as OLED, but otherwise, in my opinion, it is not inferior, but it is noticeably superior in brightness.
Sony KD-65ZF9
239 990

And this is the flagship of the Japanese company. Incredibly cool model also with direct full-massive LED backlight. Here we see the implementation of another proprietary technology Triluminos Display, which many consider a good alternative to QLED. By the way, the notorious quantum dots are also used. TV is not cheap, but the screen size is decent - 65 inches. There is an even more solid version at 75ʺ.

The resolution is 4K UHD (3840 x 2160 pixels), the frequency is 120 Hz. The viewing angles for the VA matrix are wide and comfortable, thanks to the special design of the X-Wide Angle panel. Very good is the newest high-performance 4K X1 Ultimate processor (twice as powerful as the previous X1 Extreme), whose capabilities include not only the formation of almost perfect images with the most realistic color reproduction, but also the control of local dimming algorithms, effective resolution scaling and even SDR to HDR conversion.

Initially shot in HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision, the content is reproduced with excellent detail and clarity. The smart platform is built on Android OS 8.0 Oreo (by default). The year of release of the Sony KD-65ZF9 is 2018.

Main advantages:
  • Stylish design with small aluminum-based frames;
  • Technologies for optimizing the quality of the original image 4K X-Reality Pro, Live Color, X-Motion Clarity;
  • Memory (RAM) - 4 GB, built-in (ROM) - 16;
  • High-quality VA matrix (10 bits), 104 zones of local dimming;
  • Assembly in the EU (Slovakia).
  • Great price;
  • The average sound is 2 x 10 W (with this TV it is better to use a soundbar or a home theater system).
9.8 / 10
Serious TV with a gorgeous image. If you use the recommended calibrations, very cool. I liked more than any QLED there. The colors are natural, without acidity, white is real white, black is black. Works at home in conjunction with the receiver 7.2.
LG 55SK9500
101 880

LG introduced its own version of the best premium or Super UHD LED-TV. Here, too, was not without quantum dots, only the technology of expanding the palette of displayed colors is named in its own way - the Nano Cell. The essence as a whole does not change much, unless RGB pixels are embedded directly into the panel, which is 4K IPS matrix of its own production.The viewing angles are not just wide, they are perfect.

A set of diagonals in the line - 55, 65 inches. The display frequency is 100 Hz, the processing of True Motion dynamics is 200, the bit depth is 10 bits. The type of LED backlight used is Slim Direct with full-matrix Full Array Dimming dimming. In terms of brightness and contrast, LG still loses to its upstream competitors, but it significantly gains in terms of greater affordability, so a certain circle of potential buyers can and will sacrifice some aesthetic demands.

Support for wide dynamic range is implemented in the form of proprietary 4K Cinema HDR technology, which allows you to read the content of HDR10 Pro, HLG, advanced by Dolby Vision and HDR from Technicolor. There is simply an improvement effect for SDR.

There is a more affordable version of the same class Super UHD - SK 8500 (a slight difference in design, fewer areas of local dimming). Younger versions (SK8100, 8000, 7900 and below) are equipped with conventional Edge LED backlighting.

Main advantages:
  • Convenient Smart platform on WebOS 4.0, Magic Remote remote pointer;
  • Voice "communication" with artificial intelligence;
  • High-end graphics processor α7;
  • 4K input resolution scaling;
  • Professional gaming, gallery modes.
  • No USB 3.0;
  • Not enough memory - 2 GB (operational), 4 (built-in).
9.7 / 10
I looked in the store "nine" QLED, but there the price tag is simply transcendental. LG with its Nano Cell is much more democratic. The colors are bright, saturated, local lighting works. For IPS is quite normal contrast and black level. Cool Smart.

The best OLED TVs as of the first half of 2019

360 000

The best in characteristics, technical equipment OLED TV from Korean LG. The model has been on the market since 2018 and is currently the almost indisputable flagship of not only the internal, but also the overall ranking among 4K Ultra HD models (in any case, until W9 comes out). The panel has a flexible design in the style of wall-paper. As an interface box with a built-in power supply, there is a separate sound panel that is connected with an inconspicuous cable.

The screen size is 65ʺ, there is an even larger version 77ʺ. The resolution is 3840 × 2160, the viewing angles are ultra-wide, the refresh rate is 120 Hz. Of course, there is no backlight module. The display is based on self-luminous pixels, providing excellent contrast and black depth. These are only the properties of the matrix, and in fact there is also an α9 intelligent processor, with which the image becomes as saturated, vivid and detailed as possible.

Viewing content formats HDR10 Pro, HLG, Dolby Vision, HDR from Technicolor delivers a real pleasure. The process is also “aggravated” by the support of multidimensional Dolby Atmos sound. And these are just the main advantages, which are actually much more.

  • Excellent soundbar with speaker configuration 4.2;
  • Multitasking system WebOS Smart TV;
  • Speech recognition, artificial intelligence;
  • Wireless connections via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth.
  • Very high price tag.
10 / 10
TV is a bomb! Purchased six months ago, still not overjoyed. Hanging on the wall as wallpaper. The sound is very like. So far, no residual ghosting and burnout. I noticed that I became very picky about the quality of the content.
104 400

Incredibly popular OLED panel. In its class, almost budget, although TVs with a screen on the self-highlighting pixels are usually considered to be at least premium. And don't let it “glue” close to the wall, like a picture (the lower part of the body with a built-in control unit and interfaces for connections has a thickening plus a stand = inevitable gap). But it’s still OLED with its infinite contrast and superb black depth.

The screen size is universal - 55 inches, there are more analogues - 65, 77ʺ. The resolution standard is Ultra HD / 4K / 2160p, the matrix width is 10 bits. Viewing angles are not worse than the flagship, the same α9 processor is responsible for the graphics. Video playback in high dynamic range is provided by 4K Cinema HDR technology (4 formats). The sound, however, is simpler - configuration 2.2 (40 W in total). However, there is an optional support for Dolby Atmos.

Main advantages:
  • Affordable price;
  • Multifunctional Smart on webOS with AI, speech recognition through the Magic Remote;
  • Resolution scaling up to 4K;
  • 4-step noise reduction;
  • Headphone out.
  • Some lack of brightness.
9.8 / 10
For its price, the panel is excellent. Shows - class! Smart and intuitive Smart, 200 LG channels. I did not hang on the wall, bought a long modern cabinet - it looks perfect. I want now to the TV receiver Dolby Atmos speakers.

The best at the beginning of 2019 premium new TVs with 8K display

Samsung QE65Q900RAU
279 400

The case when you realize that the future has come. Many manufacturers have announced their appearance on the Russian market of their 8K TVs, but the palm will remain for Samsung. He launched the Q900R line in the series at the end of 2018, but with an eye just for the season 2019. Now you can find versions of the three diagonals - 65, 75 and 82ʺ.

What type of display will the Korean brand use in its best model? Of course, QLED with highlight on quantum dots. Matrix 10-bit VA, the resolution of 7680 x 4320 pixels, frequency - 120 Hz, almost perfect viewing angles. Illumination system - full straight 16x (Full-Array Local Dimming). How can you not be inspired by the opening possibilities of Quantum HDR technology, which is friendly with the formats HDR10, HDR10 +, HLG, HDR3000 (peak brightness - an impressive 3000 cd / m²).

The most interesting thing is that it is not necessary to search for content UHD 4320р. The “smart” Quantum 8K processor can not only improve the quality of the incoming image, optimize the sound, but can efficiently scale resolutions to the maximum using artificial intelligence.

Main advantages:
  • Chic frameless design, invisible connection with a portable module One Connect;
  • Incredible clarity standard 8K;
  • Smart TV Tizen 4.0 with user-friendly interface Smart Hub, voice-activated remote control, support for the application SmartThings, AirPlay 2;
  • Gallery mode with customizable background;
  • Sound system 4.2 - 60 watts.
  • The price is not affordable for everyone.
10 / 10
Still, we bought it. We went to the store, licked, plugged in the USB flash drive - they decided. Satisfied! Good content in 4K really scales. And very cool. Excellent base for an advanced home theater.

Which TV to choose in 2019?

The models listed above, in accordance with today's realities, can be safely considered as hits of the season. What to stop? So after all, everyone has his own TV. However, we are ready to share some arguments, and decide whether to follow them or not.

If you have personal preferences for the manufacturer, it is reasonable to follow the “call of the soul”, at least for the reason that in the future you will not have to complain about the unusual menu, settings, “axis” of the device imposed by the seller.

Specifically, Sony, for example, with their image processing technologies, gives the best picture from a realistic perspective, but the ideal settings and interaction with Android staff require certain skills and understanding of the process.

Fans of Samsung will be foaming at the mouth to prove the advantages of their electronic favorites, citing as an argument high peak brightness values ​​and faster, more convenient, and supporting “free” Smart resources on Tizen.

LG supporters will stand behind the WebOS interface, a universal remote control, and perceive color reproduction according to the principle: let some acidity be present, but brighter and richer than in life.

And because everyone will be right in their own way. It is good for those who, like Switzerland once, managed to maintain neutrality. Accordingly, it can draw conclusions from a clean slate, based on its own vision and needs. Just a little advice: advertising slogans, all sorts of stickers with inscriptions about thousands of hertz - poboku.

Do not buy the "cat in the bag." Even with a more interesting offer on remote Internet resources, it is advisable to visit the retail store, play around with the remote, evaluate the properties of the picture. And then place an order where it will be more profitable, without forgetting to check the carefully received copy upon delivery. Suddenly he will be a problem.


You can not just poke a finger in a particular TV and say: here it is the best! So at the final stage, you still have to turn on your own consumer ego. And let it not let you down.
