What's the best TV to buy and which is the best-suited TV to your needs? We'll answer that right here, plus more besides.

4K Ultra HD is now for everybody. The content is readily available, making your TV viewing better than ever before.

There's a huge amount of choice and plenty of confusion: you'll see UHD, Ultra HD and 4K all used to describe this new level of detail that TVs can offer, as well as talk about HDR (high dynamic range), HDR10, HDR10+ and Dolby Vision just to make things more confusing.

So without further ado, let's pick out the best 4K TV for you - and check out our jargon buster at the bottom of the page.

LGLG OLED C8 review lead image 1

LG OLED C8

LG is one of the dominant forces at the high end of the TV market and this set is an incredible and comprehensively-featured OLED TV.

Building on last year's B7 and C7 models, the C8 ups the ante with even better picture, sound and features (Dolby Atmos plus every version of HDR is supported, for example). We also love LG's WebOS-based smart TV platform. 

It's true that Samsung's QLED range is brighter and so is capable of better HDR but LG's OLED panels means a better experience overall thanks to deeper blacks.

We think it'd be difficult to find a better OLED TV for the money - this is a super addition to the Panasonic line-up. It adds some excellent new features but manages to keep a competitive price point.

While the LG C8 looks flashier, it's more expensive. Most impressive is the way Panasonic's Studio Colour HXC processor delivers beautifully defined colours and plenty of detail in darker areas. 

The only disadvantage with this TV is the lack of Dolby Vision support.

Hisense U9A


View offers on Amazon UK


The brightest TV ever is a top pick because of its competitive feature set and price - Hisense has certainly been a breath of fresh air since it entered the UK market.

The H75U9A even claims local dimming across a stunning 1056 separate zones - more than twice as many as in even Samsung's stunning Q9FN flagship TV. But ultimately, the U9A falls a little short on a few things, not least the comprehensive competition available. Also colours look a little washed out when viewing HDR content while the smart TV interface needs work, too.

Hisense N6800

This Hisense's main selling point is its superb price versus the competition - it's somewhat of a mixed bag in terms of performance but it's impressive when you consider how much it is.

SDR content looks decent, but it's when you come to HDR that things aren't as good as rival models. But then. those rival models are significantly more expensive. 

There are few options with so much performance at such a low price and it's for that reason that the N6800 is super value.
