Roundup: The best HDR TVs to pair with the Apple TV 4K
With the Apple TV 4K hitting store shelves, we're rounding up a list of the best TVs on the market that offer ultra HD resolution and support HDR technology to fully utilize the Apple TV 4K's ability.
From gorgeous OLED screens to budget-friendly panels under $360, we've compiled a list of the best 4K HDR TVs to pair with your new Apple TV 4K for the ultimate home theater experience.
LG 65" OLED65C7P UHD Smart OLED TV
Those looking for the best picture quality should consider an Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) panel. Thanks to a better contrast ratio over LCD displays and no backlight for zero light bleed, OLED TVs offer true blacks and vivid colors. Since only the lit pixels draw power, OLED displays are efficient as well. After using an LG OLED TV with the Apple TV 4K since launch, I can say movies and sports are a pleasure to watch for a fully immersive experience.
For a future proof option, LG's 2017 65-inch OLED65C7P 4K offers users a variety of ports, including 4 high-speed HDMI inputs and 3 USB inputs. To complement the new features found in the Apple TV 4K, the LG OLED65C7P also supports high dynamic range (HDR) technology for realistic images.
B&H Photo has the LG OLED65C7P for $2,996.99 with free shipping and no sales tax on orders shipped outside NY and NJ. Amazon also carries the LG OLED65C7P for the same price, but with no interest if paid in full within 24 months using the Amazon.com Store Card. Amazon does collect sales tax in all applicable states, though.
Samsung 65" UN65MU8000 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV
Ringing in at half the cost of the LG OLED model above, the Samsung UN65MU8000 offers users 4K Color Drive Extreme with a billion more shades than regular 4K UHD. For those looking for a minimal design, the 65-inch Smart TV also lets you route cords through the base of the TV stand for reduced clutter. Support for HDR, as well as a 240Hz refresh rate and four HDMI ports, make it a great option to pair with the Apple TV 4K.
B&H and Amazon currently have the Samsung UN65MU8000 for $1,497.77 with free shipping. B&H will not collect sales tax on orders shipped outside NY and NJ, while Amazon is offering cardholders no interest if paid in full within 24 months using the Amazon.com Store Card.
TCL 49" 49S405 4K Ultra HD Roku Smart LED TV
On the more affordable spectrum, the TCL 49-inch 49S405 offers an abundance of features for under $360. The 2017 model utilizes HDR10 technology for enhanced detail with a 120Hz refresh rate and 4K ultra high definition resolution. Although the 49S405 has a built-in Roku Smart TV system, you can hook up an Apple TV 4K to the unit via one of the set's three HDMI 2.0 ports.
The TCL 49S405 is currently priced at $359.99 at Amazon.com with no interest if paid in full within 6 months using the Amazon.com Store Card.
Sony 75" XBR75X940E 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV
If you have a big room to fill and are looking for a premium television, the Sony XBR75X940E packs a list of features that's almost as large as its 75-inch screen. While the picture quality of an OLED screen is at the top of the list overall, this LED TV is no slouch. Featuring object-based HDR Remaster technology, the Sony XBR75X940E offers rich and vivid colors with more shades of red, green and blue thanks to Triluminos technology. Sony's Motionflow XR 960 refresh rate technology also reduces motion blur, which comes in handy when watching sports and action sequences on this big screen TV.
Sony's 75-inch XBR75X940E 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV is available for $4,298.00 at B&H Photo with no tax on orders shipped outside NY and NJ. Amazon.com also has the XBR75X940E for the same price, but with free wall mounting and no interest if paid in full within 24 months using the Amazon.com Store Card. Amazon does sales tax in all applicable states, however.
Samsung 55" QN55Q7C Curved 4K Ultra HD Smart QLED TV
Prefer the curved aesthetic? Like the LG C7 OLED panel in this list, Samsung's Curved Quantum Dot LED (QLED) TV also offers rich blacks with over a billion unique colors that make watching 4K movies a pleasure. The bezel-free screen looks great mounted to the wall or on a stand, and the 55-inch QN55Q7C can be found for under $2,000 at B&H Photo and Video with no sales tax on orders shipped outside NY and NJ. Amazon is also matching B&H's price with no interest if paid in full within 24 months using the Amazon.com Store Card. However, Amazon collects sales tax in all applicable states.
