You'll be transported into the content you're watching or playing and will be able to plan movie nights that really are like going to the theatre. So, to that end, we've gathered some of the very best 65-inch TVs on the market right now for you to choose from.
Our pick of the best 65-inch 4K TVs to buy today
LG OLED CX
LG is sort of the kind of OLED TVs at the moment - it's got the display tech down to a tee, and the CX is another in a long line of hits for the manufacturer.
It's nicely designed with a stand that's attractive without being too big, and bezels that are practically non-existant. On top of that you get stunning picture-quality on a really well-made OS, making it a joy to use. Of course, you'll pay handsomely for the privilege.
Samsung's Q80T is a real stormer of a release - it's still pretty pricey, but by Samsung's standards brings the pricing down nicely, and has a range of sizes to pick from.
The 65-inch version, like the others, is a really superb display that uses Samsung's trademark QLED technology to get deep blacks and impressive colour range without using OLED tech.
LG NANO90 65-inch
LG's got another ace up its sleeve in the form of this NANO90 TV, which is perfect if you're a big gamer and want to guarantee low lag to give you every possible advantage.
It might look like any old TV nowadays, but the picture quality is great and by cutting on the cost of OLED, using standard LED, LG's been able to make sure the TV is super-fast, perfect for games.
TCL 5-Series S535
This is a high-quality 4K QLED TV but it isn't outrageously expensive. TCL's Natural Motion 240 tech is designed to reduce motion blur, especially when watching sports or other fast-moving scenes.
As you'd expect the TV is HDR compatible (HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision) while there are all the smart TV apps you'll need, four HDMI ports and Google Assistant/Alexa integration.
TCL's 5-Series is also available in 55, 75 and 50-inch sizes.
If you like the look of Samsung's televisions, but don't want to fork out the money needed for the Q80T, the Q65T is a fabulous compromise.
You still get a brilliant QLED panel that's gorgeous to watch 4K content on, and it's a dab hand at upscaling, too. Sound quality could be better, we feel, but that's not exactly the top concern when you buy a TV.
This is a stunningly good value 65-inch 4K Ultra HD TV that's based around Amazon's Fire TV interface. if you've used an Amazon Fire TV Stick or similar you'll know that it's easy to use.
Fire TVs have an Alexa remote, so there's full voice control, too.
And you can be safe in the knowledge that your TV will support all the latest streaming apps and services, too.
There's full HDR support, too.
This model is also available in 43, 50, 55 and 70-inch sizes.
Sony comes in swinging with this huge TV that specialises in colour - its HDR is as good as you'll find out there, making for amazing contrast and depths.
This isn't an OLED or QLED display, instead representing the best of what an LCD display can offer with a bunch of refinements and improvements, and we're suitably impressed. At this price, though, we wonder if OLED would be a better investment.
