Best TV 2017 price-value

In this post we try to recommend what TV you should buy the best value of 2017. If you want to save in the first half of the year are also available TVs 2016. To learn more: When is the best moment to buy a TV?

Best TV £2500-3000

The high-end TVs in 2017 are 4K resolution, compatible with HDR10 and feature SmartTV. In this category we differentiate OLEDs from LCD-LEDs.
  • LG OLED B7 / C7: (8.5) is probably the most recommended TV if you have a high budget. The B7 and C7 are the same in picture quality. Ideal for any type of use and for any situation, both front and sides. The price in 55 inches over £3000.
  • Sony XE9305: (8.2) Best LCD-LED TV. Good picture quality and very good in HDR too. It is not a recommended TV to watch from the sides. About £200 cheaper than LG's OLED

£1500 55 inches

Without being the best have very good picture quality, its price about £1500 in 55 inches. Good choice for lovers of picture quality, with budget less than OLED. Compatibility supports HDR10 but not other formats.
  • Sony XE9005: (8) Model with direct LED, good uniformity and good contrast, to watch better front. Too expensive at the moment.
  • Samsung MU8000: (7.5) A TV to watch from the front with good contrast and ideal for gamers. Good overall.
  • Panasonic EX750: VA and 3D.

Mid-range £1000:

Televisions with more than enough picture quality for most users. They include Smart, 4K and are compatible with HDR, although its panel is something inferior: 8bits. Price of about £1000 in 55 inches.
  • Samsung MU6400: The Samsung midrange, every year gives an excellent result combining: performance, picture quality and price. They are televisions with panel VA so it is better to watch them from the front. Any of the series is recommended: MU6445, MU6505, ...
  • LG UJ670V: With IPS panel is more suitable for those with large family or sofas from the sides. Not recommending to watch movies in the dark.

The Televisions FullHD this 2017 are few, only reserved to the lower range. We recommend you visit our list with all FullHD TVs if you don't want to spend much for a TV.

Best 2017 LCD-LED TV

LCD-LED technology is the one offered by most televisions, known as LED TVs. This 2017 and already in 2016 are presented several OLED of different brands.

We can differentiate two groups of LED TV according to its panel: IPS vs VA.
Summarizing the IPS panels offer a greater viewing angle so they are recommended to watch from the front or from the sides, their black level is lower so they are not recommended to watch the TV in the dark. VA panels offer higher levels of blacks so they are good for viewing in dark or lighted halls, but better from the front.

The Best LCD-LED TVs of 2017

All major brands offer high-end models with this technology, but also offer OLEDs or QLEDs (in the case of Samsung).
The best TVs of each brand are: Sony XE9305, Samsung MU9000, LG SJ950V and Panasonic DX902B.
These models share several features in addition to LED technology. All are Smart, compatible with HDR 10bits panel and 4K resolution. All are available in 55 inches and its price is high.

The black level and viewing angle is the main difference from LG SJ950V, as its panel is IPS. It is a model very similar to the rest of the NanoCell series like the SJ850V. Color reproduction is good and is compatible with all HDR formats: HDR10, DolbyVision and HLG.

Panasonic maintains the 2016 DX902 as the best LCD-LED, still one of the best in the control of TV Zones offering blacks and brightness control of the best LCD. The panel is VA and is the only one with 3D.

Sony XE9305 is VA and enhances the model from the previous year with the new X1 Extreme processor. Compatible with HDR10 and future upgrade to DolbyVision.

The Samsung MU9000 is not the best Samsung of the year, which features QLED models but they are very expensive, we compare them (for their price) with OLEDs. This MU9000 is curved but the MU8000 is the same with flat screen. They are VA and offer a sufficiently bright image maintaining a good level of black. The worst is its viewing angle.

The price for 55-58 inches is £2000-2500 depending on the store, offers etc, ...
The Sony is the most expensive, at least output, very close to the Samsung MU9000. The Panasonic as it has been a year for sale, its price has already stabilized and we do not think it goes much lower. If you go to watch the TV from the sides or you have large family the LG better because of its greater viewing angle. If you want to enjoy cinema in the dark we recommend the Sony XE9305 with good black and good color reproduction, although the brightness for HDR images is perhaps better the Samsung MU9000.

Our opinion Samsung M5500 (veredict):

Our opinion on the Samsung M5500 is good, it is not a TV for users who want to view the new contents 4K or HDR style NetFlix or PS4Pro. We recommend this TV because of its low price and good HD and SD image quality, ideal for watching movies / sports or freeview. The angle of vision is somewhat reduced but the image is good. If you're going to watch TV from the side you recommend looking for an IPS TV if you're going to watch TV from the front and want to spend some we recommend buying the Samsung M5500.

Sony XE7073: The cheapest 4K HDR from Sony 2017

The Sony XE7073 is a mid-range 2017 TV. This model has 4K resolution and HDR compatibility. The screen is flat and this is available from 43 inches. As picture quality, we can highlight the XE7073 does not have the best technology Triluminos that is available from the XE8 series. The panel is EdgeLED and MotionFlow is 400Hz. The panel is IPS so it is a TV that looks good from the front or from the sides. The Smart is limited, it does not include the Android TV platform but it does have several applications (the main ones) that allow to access contents or to share the screen of SmartPhone in the TV (Screen Mirroring).

Our opinion Sony XE7073 (veredict):

Our opinion on the Sony XE7073 is good if you are looking for a simple TV, with good specifications but do not want to spend too much. The XE7073 is Sony's cheapest 4K for 2017, and is available with HDR10, two of the aspects we consider important today. On the negative side we emphasize that you do not have Android TV, only includes some applications and the screen does not have the technology Trilumnios if they include top models. We recommend you buy this TV if you want a 4K HDR at a low price for the Sony brand, but we recommend stretching your budget to a higher step: XE8005 or look for a model of the same price for slightly cheaper brands like Samsung or LG.

Our opinion Sony WE663 (veredict):

Our opinion on the Sony WE663 is not quite good, if you are looking for a current TV what we recommend is that it is 4K resolution and HDR10 compatible. If anyway you just want a TV to watch TV and do not want to spend a lot: a FullHD TV should be more than enough.
