The Best and Cheapest 4K TV on a Budget for 2018

TCL’s 2018 lineup really impressed us—enough for us to make two of its flagship TVs our top pick among budget 4K TVs. Read on to see what else we liked.

After spending 80 hours testing new models for 2017, and doing some preliminary tests in 2018, we think the TCL 6-Series—available in 55-inch and 65-inch versions—is the best 4K TV if you’re on a budget. Even when viewed side by side with TVs that cost two and a half times as much, the 6-Series won over our viewing panel.

After the success of the 2017 version, we had high hopes for the 2018 TCL 6-Series TVs, and overall they’ve delivered. They offer superb performance for their price, including high-dynamic-range support (both the HDR10 and Dolby Vision formats) that looks impressive in use. They also include our favorite built-in streaming media interface from Roku, so you don’t need a separate streaming device. With excellent performance and no serious flaws, the TCL 6-Series is an easy recommendation.
