What Is a Smart TV? 6 of the Best on the Market Today

Most televisions you look at now will be smart TVs, but what is a smart TV and which ones are the best on the market right now?

Best Value for Money: Vizio P50-C1 or Vizio P65-C1 Smart LCD TV

If your budget is $1,000 or your budget is $2,000, your choice is clear. Go with the Vizio P50-C1 or the Vizio P65-C1, respectively. Every reviewer thinks these are the best TVs in their price range.

Built-In Roku: TCL S3800 40″ to 55″
You should know that the TCL series of TVs don’t have the best picture quality in this price range, even though it’s full-array LED. For that, again, Vizio is the king. If you’re okay with adding a media streaming device like the Roku, I’d suggest picking up a Vizio E series TV, which comes with built-in Smartcast or Google Cast technology.

Best Mid-Range: Vizio M Series 43″ to 80″
The Vizio M series has all the basics you could want of a modern TV. The picture quality is top-notch, again beating anything in its class. In fact, an M series TV of $500 would beat a Samsung or LG of $750.

This model has built-in Smartcast or Google Cast, like the P series, with a tablet remote control as well. You can still get a media streaming device for it if you want. It has 4K Ultra HD resolution, built-in Wi-Fi, 120Hz refresh rate, and five HDMI ports—not something you often see in mid-range TVs.

Best Picture Quality: LG 55EG9100 OLED TV
If you’re looking for the best picture quality possible without spending an ungodly amount of money, then this is the TV to get. If you’re trying to choose between a 65-inch 4K TV and this 55-inch Full HD TV, this is the TV to get. If you love your eyes and have the money, this is the TV to get.

The Best TV Today: LG OLED E7P
The LG OLED E7P is mainly about bragging rights. Spending $5,000 on a television set is a little crazy. But hey, if you have the money, go for it. This too runs LG’s WebOS, so you might want a media streaming device to go with it.

Heck, even a Chromecast can make a smart media center. But if you’re spending 5K for a TV, I’m guessing you don’t really care about the additional expenditure of that streamer.
