Hisense is a big player in budget TVs, partly because of its proprietary technology, ULED. The Quantum ULED system is similar to QLED, but it’s made up of several backlit LED panels. These enhance the standard LED experience without getting quite to the level of QLED. This TV does have a huge color gamut, and several local dimming zones, so you’ll get nice contrast and deeper blacks than a standard backlit LED TV. It uses Roku for its smart TV platform, meaning you can stream from dozens of different apps without any external devices.

55-inch Samsung Q70A Series QLED 4K TV — $800, was $1,000

If you want to bump things up a notch from LED (or the somewhat anomalous ULED), look into a QLED TV. This option from Samsung is a great starting point. QLEDs use very small quantum dots to increase the range of colors and the contrast you can get in a single image. The Q70A has some nice additions, like separate light panels for cool and warm colors, so you ensure you get the full contrast between the two. It also has some special modes for gaming, like an Ultrawide GameView mode that makes the aspect ratio as wide as 32:9.

Samsung’s The Frame TV is a unique beast. It’s a gorgeous TV on its own, but it specializes in a unique niche. On its surface The Frame TV is a quality QLED TV, running at 2160p resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate. What makes it special is its Art Mode. When you’re not using the TV, you can set it to display high-quality images that you’d be hard pressed to tell aren’t actual paintings on your wall. The trick is in the matte display, which decreases glare from different angles and makes the TV look less like a pane of glass and more like the surface of an actual painting.

55-inch LG B2 Series OLED 4K TV — $1,000, was $1,300

If you simply need the best of the best, nothing but an OLED TV will satisfy. OLED pixels have their own light sources, so when they need to show perfect blacks, they just shut themselves off completely. You won’t see better contrast on a regular LED or QLED TV. The LG B2 has a powerful processor equipped with AI that will optimize everything you watch to the crispest image quality and best contrast available. It has various bells and whistles like 4K upscaling, tone mapping for color enhancing, and Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos for high-quality visuals and sound.
