Best 4K UHD TVs of 2018By Reviewed Staff
Whether you feel like you need it or not, 4K resolution is the wave of the future when it comes to TVs. And while the latest standard in picture quality hasn't quite saturated the market just yet, it never hurts to future-proof your living room.
But tomorrow's TVs don't come cheap—at least, not if you want the best of the best. Until Ultra-HD resolution becomes the new standard, you'll have to invest a little extra cash if you want to experience a cinema-quality picture in the comfort of your own home.

If you've got a traditional home theater viewing environment, the LG C8 is just about a perfect TV. While I'm not personally crazy about the design, and think the AI ThinQ functionality will only be a huge benefit to a small number of people, LG's OLEDs continue to lead the way in terms of pure, appreciable picture quality, and the C8 is the best value for the most people.

The dream of a cheap OLED may have to wait until next year, but one look at the C7 is all it takes to fall head-over-heels in love.. All in all, the rich, accurate color; perfect black levels; wide viewing; and generally smooth, acceptable motion settings combine to make for a picture that is truly breathtaking. Like top-notch HDR, OLED is one of those TV experiences you kind of have to see to believe. Read full review.
Features like a remote with voice-search and Alexa compatibility are welcome additions, but they also aren't hugely compelling reasons for 2017 buyers to upgrade to a 2018 model. However, if you've been waiting to buy an OLED, take it from the already psyched 2017 owners: if all that can be improved right now is processors and software, it's a safe bet you're still buying some of the best picture quality around.

This is one of Samsung's QLED TVs, meaning its major claim to fame is the use of quantum dot technology to boost its light output and color volume. Available in 65- and 75-inch sizes, both Q9FN models are beautifully designed and equipped with the latest in TV tech. As you might guess, these are expensive, premium-grade TVs. Read full review.
Despite being entry-level OLEDs, both the 55- and 65-inch models in LG's B7 Series are phenomenal. These 4K OLEDs perform at the highest level, delivering the perfect black levels and rich colors we've come to expect from OLED TVs. All told, the B7 Series makes perfect sense for people who've been hunting for a great HDR OLED but who'd like to spend as little as possible to land one. Read full review.
