These Are the Best TVs of 2017 You Can Buy Now

The best TVs of 2017 have big screens, higher resolutions, and more vibrant colors. And with the holidays around the corner (and plenty of discounts still to be had after Black Friday and Cyber Monday), now may be the best time to buy one for yourself or another tech-loving friend.

That said, figuring out which TV is best to buy can be difficult if you’re unfamiliar with the jargon. A full-HD TV set, for instance, has 1080p resolution, or 1,920 pixels by 1,080 pixels. But an Ultra HD 4K TV has 3,840 pixels by 2,160 pixels in the same set.

The result? A crisper picture.

Meanwhile, many new TVs come with high dynamic range, or HDR, that translates into more vibrant colors for HDR-enabled content than on non-HDR sets.

Then there’s the issue of screen technology. Should you go with an OLED or LCD? They both have their advantages: OLEDs generally have better pictures, but cost substantially more than LCD sets.

In the following roundup, we’ve tried to simplify your decision and easily find the best TV for you. Included are several outstanding TVs made in 2017 based on a factors like cost, value, and quality.
