Price: ,498 4.2 – 151 Reviews Sony’s 2017 XBR-E Series 4K TVs are some of this year’s best 4K LCD HDR televsions and even manage to beat their Samsung QLED competitors in some ways.
The 2017 X940E however is a complete stunner of a 4K HDR TV and especially by LCD TV standards.
It delivers downright stunning color performance, the absolute best contrast ratios and black levels we’ve ever seen in any 4K TV outside of OLED technology and best of all, this model gets stunningly bright, much brighter than its 2016 counterpart and almost as bright as even the best of Samsung’s SUHD or 2017 QLED TVs.
As you’ll note, the 2016 E6 OLED from the same brand is right below this model but costs more than the newer C7 and this is only part of the reason why we’ve ranked the 2017 OLED in our top spot.
It’s peak brightness is at a level that has never before been seen in OLED 4K TVs and its color space coverage is second to none among all the OLED TV models.
The following models are mostly 2017 4K HDR TVs that we have reviewed so far or are certain of their rankings and a very few 2016 models which we still think are stunning enough to compete with newer editions and deliver a superb level of performance relative to their price or in absolute terms.
In other words, this list will be updated as regularly as new television models get reviewed or thoroughly vetted by us.
Additionally, LG has given the C7 a superior new smart TV platform and better than ever connectivity for gaming and other uses.
In addition to this, you get all the best features of previous OLED TVs such as virtually perfect motion handling, literally perfect local dimming and black levels and the perceived improvement of all of these due to this model’s excellent levels of peak brightness.
Best of all, the C7 performs as well as even the priciest of LG’s 2017 4K HDR OLED TVs while costing only about 0 more than its 2016 counterpart the C6.
