If you’ve been in the same room as one of the best 75-inch 4K TVs you can buy right now, you’ll know it really is a sight to behold. These super-sized screens feature all of the latest tech and premium processing, at a size that will prove much more impactful than its smaller 55-inch TV or 40-inch TV cousins. One of the best 75-inch TV is a surefire way to turn your home cinema set-up into something that actually feels as close to the real cinema experience as you’ll get in your living room.
Every year TVs are growing in size. Although 75-inch TVs are still the outlier, tech manufacturers are increasingly looking to bigger and bigger versions of their flagship sets. Improved manufacturing and increased demand also mean you're not having to remortgage your house to get one, either – even if you're still paying a decent amount more than the next size down, on the whole.
But be warned, if you happen to find a 75-inch 4K TV that's suspiciously affordable, it's likely using older LCD technology that was designed for smaller screens. What that means is it might not deliver the high-impact image quality you're no doubt after in this category. That said, we have a few more budget options in this list for those without many thousands of dollars or pounds at their disposal.
We expect a bunch of new entries soon, once the 2021 ranges from the biggest TV brands start to release to market – whether that's the new Samsung TVs on the way or LG's original QNED range – so do check back now and again to see what new entries have been added.
For now, though, here are the best 75-inch 4K TVs you can buy in 2021 – as well as a choice 8K TV for those of you with truly premium tastes. Keep in mind, too, that the OLED TVs in this list will all be at a 77-inch size, rather than 75-inch.

Best 75-inch TVs
The LG G1 OLED is a knockout 77-inch 4K TV that builds on the sleek design of last year's Gallery Series OLED and somehow makes it better.
The real hero here is LG's new OLED evo technology, which updates the panel structure to eke out even more brightness – without increasing blooming effects or, we're told, the chance of burn-in. The LG G1 looks to be a real revolution for the OLED TV maker, then, and certainly offers an upgrade over the cheaper LG C1 OLED – unlike last year, when the CX and GX models were worlds apart in price but effectively offered the same picture performance.
It's an expensive set, and the Dolby Atmos sound system isn't the best for bass – something that will effect all the other LG OLEDs in this guide. But the breathtakingly slim design makes it a real centerpiece television, with the contrast and color benefits of OLED pushed to new, lighting-enhanced heights. The new a9 Gen 4 AI processor is even more capable of smartly upscaling and processing onscreen objects, too, with motion processing in particular getting an upgrade.
Watch out though: the G1 is really designed to be wall-mounted, and it won't come with a TV stand or feet out of the box. You can buy a floorstanding Gallery Stand alongside, or find a third-party solution for placing on a counter, though it might be increasingly tricky to support this screen at a 77-inch size.

The Samsung QN900A Neo QLED 8K TV ushers in a new era of television technology in one of the best 75-inch TVs we've seen this year.
Unlike the model topping this list, the QN900A comes in an exact 75-inch size, and utilises the Mini LED backlight common across Samsung's new Neo QLED range. It's certainly a notable improvement, with truly stunning picture quality, exceptional color and brightness, and outstanding blacks. And this screen is quite the looker on the outside, too.
For the uninitiated, Samsung's 'Quantum' Mini LEDs are 1/40th the thickness of a regular LED, meaning thousands of smaller LEDs can be packed together in a much tighter fashion, allowing for far more accurate dimming zones and black levels that are practically indistinguishable from an OLED.
As the LEDs are far smaller, they're able to achieve far more precision and less blooming, so the act of seeing bright areas of the screen unnaturally bleed over into darker spots should be greatly reduced or not evident at all.
And because it takes advantage of Samsung's Multi-Intelligence AI upscaling, the QN900A is consistently able to produce images that looked better than their source. You'll get to benefit from a host of gaming features too, with the latest HDMI 2.1 and eARC features, 4K/120fps and 8K/60fps passthrough, as well as Game Motion Plus and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro for those connecting to a PC.

While TCL's awesome (and inexpensive) 6-Series has been around for a while, it wasn't until 2019 that a 75-inch model came to stores – and even as the price stays the small, the screen definitely goes big.
This TCL TV offers Dolby Vision support, and comes with Roku TV as its smart platform – though this size model is available exclusively to Best Buy in the US.
While TCL's 6-Series didn't impress us quite as much as the other TVs on this list, it is a competitive screen at its price point, offering bright, colorful HDR and exceptionally clear images.
If you have deep pockets and a chequebook ready to go, we’d still tell you to reach deep and shell out for something higher on this list. But if the TCL 6 Series is what's in your budget, it will provide exceptional performance for the price.

The best LG TVs usually feature OLED panels, but the Nano90 is an exception as the flagship 4K LCD from LG last year – offering premium features, excellent processing, and a massive size for a significantly lower price than the 77-inch OLED TVs out there.
LCD is still the cheaper way to go, and you are having to put up with some issues you won't see on OLED: the Nano90 suffers some mild backlight flickering, for one, though the black levels are still very impressive for an LCD set.
The Nano90's wide viewing angles, strong color performance, and reliable webOS smart platform all make it a 75-inch screen that's easy to recommend – that is, if you can't stump up the cash for a (let's admit it, superior) OLED model like the CX above.

Panasonic's flagship LCD screen last year may not have featured an OLED panel like its more premium siblings – such as the HZ1000, HZ1500, or monstrously good HZ2000 – but it did offer a massive screen with Panasonic's predictably competent processing.
You're getting universal HDR support here, as well as Dolby Atmos support – with enough forward projection in its 20W speakers to make the addition feel worthwhile. Picture quality is impressive, too, with a clever backlighting system that ensures bright HDR objects stay bright without blooming in surrounding areas.
The 75-inch model is the best option, given its smaller 43-inch and 65-inch iterations use an IPS panel (lower contrast, wider viewing angles) rather than the 75-inch's VA panel (the reverse).
It's not the cheapest set on this list, but it's also far below what you'd be paying for a 77-inch OLED, and is well worth a look for those just after a reliable, high-performing LCD screen.

As a follow up to our best TV last year, the LG CX OLED, we had high expectations for the C1 OLED – and yet, it has managed to deliver on all of them, earning its place in our best TV 2021 guide.
That’s because LG has made a number of small tweaks to last year’s model. It’s now using LG’s Alpha a9 Gen. 4 processor for better upscaling and virtual surround sound audio, and with four separate HDMI 2.1 ports, it’s ready for the PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and whatever next-gen consoles can throw at it. Gamers will also appreciate the new Game Optimiser menu that gives you the option to quickly adjust brightness, contrast and VRR on the fly.
The LG C1 isn’t flawless, as we did encounter issues around how the new Alpha a9 Gen. 4 upscales faces, and how reflective the all-glass screen is in the daylight, but the issues are few and far between.
There are, of course, higher resolution TVs out there right now like the LG Z1 OLED, which offers 8K resolution, and the new LG G1 Gallery Series that uses the coveted OLED evo panels that offer better brightness. However, we feel that the LG C1 OLED offers the best blend of price and performance and makes for one of the best TVs to buy in 2021 and beyond.

At just $1,299 for a 75-inch model, the Hisense H8G Quantum Series is a highly affordable choice for super-sized screen.
At double of the price of the 65-inch model, though, there's a real price uptick, and those after a true saving may wish to check out the 65-inch model instead. That said, the Hisense H8G offers a lot at any size, with Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos support, along with a bright and colorful picture set to give you a great night in whatever you're watching.
The design of the set itself could be more inspiring, but you get what you pay for, and we'd rather Hisense skimp on the casing materials than the panel or processor.

Buying the best 75-inch 4K TV for you
TechRadar's best 75-inch TV buying advice
First and foremost, be really careful about TV sales that sound too good to be true. If you see a 75-inch 4K TV for around $600 / £600, it's probably going to let you down in terms of picture performance.
So who's the main culprit that causes ugly images in the 75-inch range? Bad backlighting. While the cheapies use edge-lit LED panels that produce poor black levels and contrast, the bigger brands opt for either direct, full array LED panels – or in the case of LG, OLED panels. Both illuminate across the whole screen, and create both luscious color and 4K clarity.
Some of our favorite 75-inch TVs are LG's series of OLEDs, which boast exceptional black levels and premium HDR (if technically measuring at 77-inch, given the limited sizing of OLED panels0. They're perfect for a dark room experience, like a home cinema, though for brightly-lit rooms you may want to consider Samsung's QLED TV series. Sony and TCL, too, make 75-inch TVs well worth considering.
Once you get to a 75-inch size, too, 8K TVs really become a smart investment. That's because the greater number of pixels over 4K (33 million rather than eight million) ensures far greater detail at that size. A 55-inch 8K TV doesn't really make much of a difference, but a 75-inch 8K TV certainly does.
You are paying more for an 8K TV on the whole though, which, coupled with the price increase of such a large screen, may move it out of your budget – in which case, a 75-inch 4K TV should still serve your needs just fine. If you have the cash, though, we don't think you'll regret opting for a set that makes the most of both a big-screen display and screen-filling detail.
