Best TVs of 2024: Tested and reviewed

At Tom's Guide, we're always hunting for the best TV. As new models come out, we put them through a rigorous testing regiment, all to help you make the best decision you can possibly make when shopping for a new OLED or QLED TV. We test all the top TVs each year — close to four dozen of them — and these are the 4K TVs that we recommend. 

What are we looking for when we review the best TVs? We want everything that you want: great picture quality, rich sound, easy setup, and all of the smart features available today. We take all those metrics and weigh them against the price of the TV to help you decide what's worth your money.

To evaluate each TV, we test them in our labs and in the real world, measuring everything from color reproduction and color accuracy to lag time for gaming performance. Plus, we gauge picture and sound quality by watching some of the most popular shows and movies. 

So what are the best TVs available now? Based on our testing recently named the Hisense U8K to the top spot due to its on-going affordability and phenomenal performance. Other top-scoring models like the LG G3 OLED and Samsung QN90C still hold high rankings on our list, but we wanted to place a higher emphasis on more affordable models.

Speaking of LG's OLED TVs, the company just announced the pricing of its G4 and C4 OLED TVs, with pre-orders available now. With the LG C4 OLED, Hisense UX (2024), TCL QM8 (2024) and Samsung QN90D all expected to launch in the next two months, it's worth keeping a close eye on this page as we work our way through the best TVs 2024 has to offer.
