The best TV in 2024: The top smart TVs this year

How to choose the best LED TV of 2024

It’s time to select the top TV of 2024, focusing on LED technology. With devices now featuring up to 8K resolution alongside 4K, and incorporating mini-LED panels, our editorial award rating process becomes particularly intriguing.

8.Hisense U6K

8. Hisense U6K

Screen sizes – 55, 65, 75” | Resolution – 4K | Panel – QLED/Mini-LED | Sweep – 60 Hz | HDMI – 4 x HDMI 2.0

Pros – cheap and cheerful for such and such money

Cons – scan rate is only 60 Hz, no HDMI 2.1 ports

The inexpensive Hisense U6K TV is your ticket to the world of Mini-LED. The newest panel, although it operates at a frequency of 60 Hz, thanks to this technology, provides exceptionally deep black tones and an excellent level of contrast with a real (measured in HDR when the screen is completely filled) brightness of 400 cd. Color rendering is also ok – the panel is Quantum Dot QLED, so the colors come out luxurious. In general, if you are not chasing games with high frame rates, all roads lead to Hisense U6K

7. Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED

7. Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED

Screen sizes – 43, 55, 65, 75” | Resolution – 4K | Panel – QLED | Sweep – 60 Hz | HDMI – 4 x HDMI 2.1

Pros – balanced picture, HDMI 2.1 “in stock”, excellent OS

Cons – not the highest brightness, simple speakers

This affordable TV uses an Omni QLED panel, which guarantees a very pleasant and natural picture. There are no advanced gaming functions here, but the device supports VRR, ALLM, Dolby Vision, and all its HDMI ports are certified for version 2.1. You can only criticize the device for its not-so-spectacular stereo speakers – the savings, whatever one may say, have an effect (and it’s good that it’s not in the picture – after all, you will always have time to buy a soundbar).

6. Hisense U8K ULED TV

6. Hisense U8K ULED TV

Screen sizes – 55, 65, 75” | Resolution – 4K | Panel – ULED/Mini-LED | Scan – 144 Hz | HDMI – 4 x HDMI (2 x HDMI 2.1)

Pros – 144 Hz, reference picture, great sound

Cons – colors will need to be calibrated

The incredibly bright Hisense U8K ULED TV will offer 144 Hz scanning, a proprietary ULED panel with a Mini-LED backlight system, and an absolutely fantastic built-in sound system. So, is there anything left to dream about? Not at all – this TV’s color calibration is worth some effort, especially since the color gamut reaches an impressive 80% of the Rec.2020 space.

5. TCL C845K

5. TCL C845K

Screen sizes – 55, 65, 75, 85” | Resolution – 4K | Panel – QLED/Mini-LED | Scan – 120 Hz | HDMI – 4 x HDMI (2 x HDMI 2.1)

Pros – exceptionally good color rendition

Cons – the speakers are so-so – bassy soundtracks may be too much to handle,

While the TCL C845K’s HDR performance isn’t always perfect (there’s a bit of highlighting in the midtones), this TV still deserves a round of applause. 4K/120 Hz, VRR, ALLM, Dolby Vision, of course, are “available”, but the main magic is done by the QD-OLED panel – the picture at times seems truly three-dimensional. The combination of incredible sharpness and reference color reproduction creates a real wow effect – bravo.

4. Samsung QN90C Neo QLED TV

4. Samsung QN90C Neo QLED TV

Screen sizes – 43, 55, 65, 75, 85” | Resolution – 4K | Panel – QLED/Mini-LED | Scan – 120 Hz | HDMI – 4 x HDMI 2.1

Pros – HDMI 2.1 on all ports, excellent, bright and rich picture

Cons – no Dolby Vision

Samsung QN90C offers almost any screen size you choose and guarantees exceptionally stable and clear images. The image on the latest version of the 4K panel does not give rise to any reason for criticism, and gamers will appreciate the minimal output delay – thanks to which even serious online battles look decent on this TV.

3. Samsung QN900C Neo QLED 8K TV

3. Samsung QN900C Neo QLED 8K TV

Screen sizes – 65, 75, 85” | Resolution – 8K | Panel – QLED/Mini-LED | Scan – 120 Hz | HDMI – 4 x HDMI 2.1

Pros – 8K resolution, good for both games and movies

Cons – detail clipping is rarely noticeable in dark scenes, no Dolby Vision support

Whatever one may say, 8K resolution will replace 4K in the near future – and the first sign on the market is the Samsung QN900C Neo QLED 8K TV. The TV shows exceptionally well, literally blowing you away with its detail – the only pity is that the darkest scenes can sometimes hide small details. But for the top version, the company has an OLED model in its arsenal, and in terms of the QLED/Mini-LED combination, everything is at the highest level.

2. TCL QM8 Mini-LED

2. TCL QM8 Mini-LED

Screen sizes – 65, 75, 85, 98” | Resolution – 4K | Panel – QLED/Mini-LED | Scan – 144-240 Hz (1080p) | HDMI – 4 x HDMI (2 x HDMI 2.1)

Pros – you can choose a huge size, record brightness and excellent blacks

Disadvantages – not always perfect movement practice

TCL QM8 Mini-LED is a true giant with a screen size of up to 98”. The device can easily replace a projector, while remaining stunningly bright (up to 3,500 nits in HDR)! There are no complaints about the black color; the color rendering is more like an open window. The smallest complaints can be made about moments with active camera movement – only 240 Hz in 1080p resolution works ideally at such a diagonal, but I don’t want to lower the resolution at all.

1. Sony XR X95L mini-LED

1. Sony XR X95L mini-LED

Screen sizes – 65, 75, 85” | Resolution – 4K | Panel – Mini-LED | Scan – 120 Hz | HDMI – 4 x HDMI (2 x HDMI 2.1)

Pros – “full stuffing” of top functions and luxurious pictures

Cons – nothing

It’s a Sony. The Sony XR X95L mini-LED demonstrates the best picture in this class – with an ideal balance of brightness and contrast, vibrant colors, there is no reason to criticize the transmission of motion. The screen is also glare-free, blacks are reminiscent of OLED at times, and HDR operation ensures a completely immersive experience. Bravo, XR Backlight Master Drive and XR Triluminos Pro!
