Best 65 Inch TVs of December, 2019 – Discover our Top 3

Make Your Viewing Experience Bigger and Better!

Getting a new TV is always exciting, especially when you consider what a difference a large screen makes to your viewing pleasure.

The TV market is constantly shifting towards bigger and bigger screens. With ever decreasing bezels and ever improving technology – smart TVs, for example, that offers full functionality, HDR, 4K (and heading rapidly towards 5K), and the aesthetically pleasing curved screens, it can be confusing to know exactly what’s the best option on the market.

Manufacturers are upping their game with visuals, too. Vastly improved resolution, impressively huge color palettes, alongside tonal and textural effects, all combine to bring the cinematic experience right into our homes. Audio quality, for a long time lagging behind the visuals, is now recognised for the crucial componant it is, and as such, the bar has been raised, completing the full immersive adventure.

1) LG 4K UHD

Overview

Whilst this LG model isn’t as slim as some other LED/LCD screens, there is a good reason. The width is due to so many tiny firefly-like backlights that make up the impressive Full Array Local Dimming – this takes up quite a lot of chasis space, unlike the arguably inferior edge-lit backlighting systems that many other TVs implement. ThinQ, developed by LG, opens the door to high tech AI.

In terms of appearance, though, this is a very stylish model, with an aesthetically pleasing brushed steel curved stand completing the slick, minimalistic look.

What We Like

LG’s AI-backed ThinQ functionality includes Google Assistant, and Amazon Alexa, making this an all round smart centre.

We were impressed with LG’s Nano Cell Display. The color spectrum is massive (apparently more than a billion colors), incredibly detailed, with great contrasts, and richly deep blacks, even from the widest viewing angle. Textures appear touchably realistic, while the Dolby Atmos sound brings the all-immersive experience right into your home.

What Needs Improving

Whilst not a big problem, the wires are rather long and may need to be pinned down to keep the TV looking tidy.

9.6Expert Score
The Final Verdict

LG's addition to the 65 inch screen market is well worth some serious consideration. The smart TV technology, with Assistant and Alexa, coupled with great image and audio quality make this unit easy to recommend.

2) Sony Bravia 65” 4K UHD TV


Overview

This premium 65 inch 4K Ultra HD Sony Bravia TV is a crowd-pleaser. Sony have surpassed themselves with the design of this smart TV. Beautifully sleek, with a minimalistic, but sturdy, stand, this model is seriously slim, and with the cables hidden away, until it’s switched on and comes to vibrant life, it fits unobtrusively into a modern interior.

What We Like

Sony Bravia is renowned as a high quality smart TV and this model is no exception. Thanks to the OLED imaging and the no-blur action feature, this TV is a dream for gamers and movie lovers alike. Realistic colors, the blackest of blacks and superbly contrasting textures are created by over 8 million self-illuminating pixels. The audio is sharp and clear, too, with a rich, rounded bass and no harshness to jar you back to reality.

We were impressed with the ease of syncing, and the connectivity stability – they allowed us to enjoy the full Sony Bravia experience.

What Needs Improving

Although we found the home screen advertising a little annoying, the quality of this TV is well worth the very minor annoyance.

9.7Expert Score
The Final Verdict

Excellent quality, amazing image resolution and intelligent features. The new Sony Bravia 65 inch 4K TV delivers on all fronts.

3) Samsung 4K UHD TV

Overview

The shining design feature on the NU8000 is its lack of a plastic frame around the top and sides of the screen. Without the frame, the TV is ultra-minimalist, elegant and so very stylish. With the T-shaped stand hiding all the wires, Samsung have pulled out all the stops with this design. They have even included guards to protect the screen as you unbox, and handle it.

What We Like

Samsung have provided a large range of customization options when it comes to image quality, but even the default settings show how great the resolution, clarity and depth are. Excellent contrasts, very responsive motion smoothing and the Dynamic Crystal Color adding a whole new spectrum, the viewing experience is fantastically rounded. The 40 watt speakers complete the package suberbly.

We made full use of the voice control smart browsing, which enables rapid access to whatever function, channel, or movie we wanted. However, it refused to provide popcorn!

What Needs Improving

It’s not a deal breaker, but the user interface does have some adverts around the edge of the screen.

9.8Expert Score
The Final Verdict

Samsung have designed a beautifully elegant smart TV that comes with loads of very efficient and useful features. Happy to recommend this.
