A 75-inch TV is large. In fact, for an average size space, it’s humungous. But, if you have a room in your home that’s big enough, this size television can provide a movie theater-like, immersive viewing experience, especially when you combine the TV with a surround sound system and perhaps some adaptive smart lighting behind the TV for added ambiance.
Many of the major TV brands offer several 75-inch smart TVs that utilize different screen types. However, due to the considerably larger size of these high resolution displays, plan on paying considerably more than you would for, say a 55- or 65-inch TV that uses similar technology. What you get for your money, however, is a TV that takes up a significant amount of wall space and that provides a true movie-like viewing experience that will draw you into whatever you’re watching.
Best 75-inch smart TVs for Fall 2023
With a TV of this size, make sure the room is large enough so that whomever is watching will be able to sit at least 8 to 10 feet away from the screen to not experience neck or eye strain. Also, as you choose the ideal 75-inch TV for your living space, consider its display type, refresh rate, speaker sound quality, built in ports and the TVs mounting options. For this size screen, wall mounting is typically a more efficient use of living space, compared to using a TV stand.
There are many really impressive 75-inch TV options available from well-known brands like Hisense, Samsung, Sony and TCL. We selected the 2023 edition of the 77-inch Sony Bravia XR A80L OLED 4K TV as our top pick in this roundup. It offers an impressive selection of features, not to mention it showcases a really impressive picture quality using a fast refresh rate. As a result sports, action movies and other fast moving content looks fantastic. Meanwhile, our readers really love Samsung’s The Frame, which comes in a 75-inch version. This TV’s bezel looks like a picture frame, so when the TV is hung on a wall, it resembles a piece of artwork in your home. And when you’re not watching the TV, it displays either famous works of art or you favorite digital photos in high resolution.
The 2023 edition of the TCL 75-inch Q7 QLED 4K Smart TV also offers an impressive collection of features and good picture quality, but it’s priced for more budget-conscious people. However, if you really want a TV that offers really good value for your investment, we recommend the 2023 version of the Hisense 75-inch U8H Series Mini-LED TV. Although based on your budget, there are plenty of other really good options, including a cutting-edge 8K resolution TV from Samsung that will perform nicely in a larger size room.
Best 77″ TV overall: Sony Bravia XR A80L OLED 4K (2023)
Display Type: OLED | Resolution: 4K | Refresh Rate: 120Hz | Operating System: GoogleTV | Max. Brightness: 790 nits | HDR Support: HDR, HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision | Main Ports: 4x HDMI, 2x USB, 1x Ethernet | Other Key Features: Cognitive Processor XR support, voice remote, Miracast and Apple AirPlay support, Google Assistant and Alexa support, DTS Digital Sound, integrated Playstation 5 gaming features | Overall Dimensions: 67.87 x 39.37 x 2.25 inches (without stand) | Weight: 76.7 pounds (without stand)
While many TV brands focus on offering TVs in the 75-inch category, Sony is one that offers a 77-inch version of its popular A80L OLED series TV. Yes, you do wind up paying a slight premium for the prestige associated with the Sony brand name, but when you take a closer look at what this TV offers, you will find that it’s well worth the investment. Picture quality is primarily driven by the Cognitive Processor XR that offers wide dynamic contrast, combined with life-like and accurate color generation. You also get pure blacks, vivid whites.
Thanks to the OLED display, more than a billion colors can be displayed, which combines nicely with the TV’s support for Dolby Vision, IMAX Enhanced and Netflix Adaptive Calibrated Mode. Thus, whatever you’re watching will look sharp, with accurate colors. And if you’re watching lower resolution content, the A80L uses XR Clear Image and XR 4K Upscaling to bring that picture quality up to near 4K with blur-free motion.
If you happen to be agamer, Sony has integrated some really nice features into the TV that will bring your games to life in extremely vivid detail: It supports up to 4K (120 fps), VRR and AALM and more. Sound quality generated by the TV’s internal speakers is impressive, but a screen of this size is designed to be connected to a soundbar or surround sound system that supports Dolby Atmos and Acoustic Surface Audio+. Combine all this with smart functionality powered by GoogleTV OS, and you get a really impressive and versatile TV. Our biggest complaint about this TV is its rather low maximum brightness (just 70 nits) for a TV in this price range.
- Features a 77-inch (not 75-inch) OLED display.
- Impressive integrated features for PlayStation 5 gamers.
- Offers enhanced 4K upscaling that uses AI.
- Utilizes proprietary Sony technology to generate a really sharp and blur free picture, which makes it ideal for watching sports, action movies or gaming.
- It’s more expensive than many competitors.
- The TV’s max brightness of 790 nits could be better.
- Only two of the HDMI ports support HDMI 2.1.
Most popular 75″ TV with our readers: Samsung’s The Frame
Display type: QLED (non-reflective matte finish) | Resolution: 4K | Refresh rate: 120Hz | Operating System: Tizen | Max. Brightness: 1,000 nits | HDR Support: HDR10+, HLG | Main Ports: 4x HDMI, 2x USB, 1x Ethernet | Other Key Features: AI upscaling, bezel style/color options, Art mode, Dolby Atmos support, rotates vertically, Samsung Game Hub, support for multiple digital assistants | Overall dimensions: 66.2 x 37.8 x 1.1 inches (without stand) | Weight: 77.8 pounds (without stand)
Like all Samsung smart TVs, The Frame is powered by the Tizen OS, which provides quick and easy access to your favorite content. This TV offers some unique functionality that make it stand out from the competition. For example, the TV, which is designed to be hung on a wall, utilizes a thin bezel that features a customizable picture frame appearance. As a result, when the TV is displayed on your wall, it looks like a piece of artwork. Plus, when you’re not watching programming, the TV automatically displays either famous works of art (that you preselect) or your favorite digital photos and/or video clips. In other words, there’s never just an unattractive black rectangle hanging on your wall.
To make artwork displayed on the screen look more realistic, The Frame uses a unique, non-glare matte finish. This also allows the TV shows or movies you’re watching to look detailed with life-like colors, but you do not get the brightness level or picture vividness that many other 75-inch TVs offer.
Thanks to The Frame’s thin (1.1 inch thick) design, it truly looks like a hanging picture frame on any wall–yet it’s able to use its QLED display to showcase 4K resolution video with HDR support and Quantum Dot technology that can showcase more than one billion colors. The Frame has become the most popular TV amongst our readers. When you purchase this TV, you’re able to choose from a handful of frame colors and styles, so when hung on the wall in your home, it will nicely fit in with the existing decor.
- When displaying artwork, the TV’s auto-rotating wall mount allows the screen to be rotated 90 degrees so it can showcase artwork in portrait mode when appropriate. This requires an extra high ceiling, however, due to the size of the TV.
- Using the TV’s integrated motion sensor, you can set up The Frame to turn itself off when a room is empty, and immediately power on (and display artwork or photos) when someone enters the room.
- Display your favorite digital photos or video clips on The Frame by transferring the content to the TV (from a computer or mobile device) using a USB flash drive.
- Access to Samsung’s library of more than 2,000 works of art requires an ongoing subscription.
- The Frame offers a more narrow viewing angle than many competitors.
- Due to its unique design, this TV is priced a bit higher than other 75-inch, 4K smart TVs.
Best budget 75″ TV: TCL Q7 QLED 4K Smart TV (2023)

Offered at an affordable price for a 75-inch QLED TV (especially when it’s on sale), you can’t go wrong with this smart 4K TV. It runs using the GoogleTV OS, so all of your favorite streaming content is readily accessible. The maximum brightness of 1,000 nits helps to ensure a vibrant picture, even in a brightly lit room. The QLED display with Quantum Dot Technology and more than 200 local dimming zones can showcase more than one billion colors. You also get support for Dolby Vision IQ, HDR10+. HDR10 and HLG to boost contrast and bring out the finite detail in whatever you’re watching.
All of this results in more lifelike images with deep blacks, without seeing annoyances like image blooming. And with the 120Hz refresh rate, you can watch sports, action-oriented movies or play games and get a really smooth viewing experience without unwanted motion blur.
For gaming, TCL has integrated features like Auto Game Mode (ALLM) and ADM FreeSync Premium Pro support, as well as its nifty Game Accelerator 240. Overall, this TV offers an impressive picture with better than average sound. Where it’s lacking is in built-in ports. You do get four HDMI ports, but only one supports eARC and there’s only one USB port. On the plus side, the TV integrates nicely with both Chromecast and Apple AirPlay 2 devices, so content on your mobile devices can be displayed on the TV screen. Overall, we consider this TV to be affordable, but you don’t have to compromise on quality.
- The TV can display more than one billion colors, at 3,840 x 2,160 pixel resolution, using more than 200 dimming zones.
- You get Dolby Atmos, Dolby Digital+, Dolby Digital, PCM and DTS HD audio support.
- This TV is able to generate impressive contrast and color.
- Enjoy a nice collection of integrated gaming features.

Best value 75″ TV: Hisense Class U8H Series Mini-LED (2023)
Display Type: Mini-LED (ULED) | Resolution: 4K | Refresh Rate: 120Hz | Operating System: GoogleTV | Max. Brightness: 1,500 nits | HDR Support: HDR10, HDR10+, HLG, Dolby Vision | Main Ports: 4x HDMI, 2x USB, 1x Ethernet | Other Key Features: 16:9 aspect ratio, Dolby Atmos, Game Mode Pro, Filmmaker mode, Google Assistant, thin bezel design, voice remote | Overall Dimensions: 65.9 x 38.1 x 3 inches (without stand) | Weight: 81.6 pounds (without stand)
Utilizing a massive Mini-LED display, this Class U8H Series TV is the largest offered by Hisense in this line. With its Quantum Dot Color technology, it’s able to generate and display more than one billion accurate, vivid and life-like colors in full 4K resolution (with support for Dolby Vision HDR). One thing that sets this TV apart, aside from its highly competitive price, is its maximum brightness of 1,500 nits. This means you’ll see a clear and vibrant picture, even in a brightly lit room.
When watching movies, the TV’s Filmmaker Mode preserves the aspect ratio, color and frame rate the content was intended to be seen in for a more authentic, theater-like experience. For gamers the Game Mode Pro uses HDMI 2.1 inputs and adjusts game settings for smooth play with automatic low-latency mode and a 120Hz variable refresh rate designed to minimize scream jitter, input lag and frame tearing.
Perhaps the most appealing feature of this TV is its price, especially when it’s on sale. Hisense has packed a lot of high-end features into a TV that falls into the mid-range price point. This makes the U8H an excellent value. It comes with a stand, but to save space, consider mounting this TV on a wall.
- This TV offers a beautiful, 4K mini-LED (ULED) display with a 120Hz refresh rate that takes full advantage of 528 full array local dimming zones.
- You get plenty of built-in ports (as well as WI-Fi and Bluetooth) for connecting a cable box, gaming console, surround sound system and more.
- Impressive maximum brightness (up to 1,500 nits), which is better than most competitors.
- Side viewing image quality could be better, as it degrades somewhat.
- The TV struggles a bit with upscaling low resolution native content (720p or lower).
Best premium 8K 75″ TV: Samsung Neo QLED 8K QN900C (2023)
Display type: QLED (Mini-LED LCD) | Resolution: 8K | Refresh rate: 120Hz (up to 144Hz with Game Motion Plus feature) | Operating System: Tizen | Max. Brightness: Up to 4,000 nits | HDR Support: HDR, HDR10+, HLG | Main Ports: 4x HDMI, 4x USB, 1x Ethernet | Other Key Features: Dolby Atmos, impressive AI-based upscaling, two speakers plus built in subwoofer, Alexa, Bixby and Google Assistant support, multi-view capabilities | Overall dimensions: 65.1 x 37.2 x 0.6 inches (without stand) | Weight: 68.8 pounds (without stand)
It’s true there’s basically zero native 8K programming you can watch. However, this QLED television from Samsung is somewhat ahead of its time in that its integrated AI-upscaling automatically upgrades 4K resolution (or lower) content to near 8K quality. And it does a really impressive job doing this. Thus, you’re able to see more detail than ever before when watching your favorite shows, movies or sporting events, for example.
To experience this 8K resolution TV in your home, you will need to pay a hefty premium. Like many other Samsung TV models, however, it offers decent quality built in speakers and a subwoofer, so even without a soundbar or surround sound system, the audio this TV generates sounds really good. However, since you’re investing in such a high-end TV, we strongly recommend connecting a good quality speaker system to it, so you can really experience the Dolby Atmos sound when watching your favorite content. Samsung recommends one of its Q-series or S-series options that fully take advantage of the company’s Q-Symphony 3.0 feature.
What sets this 8K resolution TV apart from 4K models is that it offers 7,680 x 4,320 pixel resolution featuring 100% color volume thanks to Samsung’s Quantum Dot and Neo Quantum HDR 8K+ technology. You also get close to glare-free viewing, so no matter where someone is sitting within the room, they’ll see a clear picture (even from an angle). If you consider yourself an early adopter when it comes to the latest technology and you have the budget to invest in an 8K TV, the 2023 version of the Samsung 75-Inch Neo 8K QN900C Series 9 offers a viewing experience that very few competitors can rival.
- The TV is equipped with superior 8K resolution with powerful, AI-based upscaling which upgrades lower resolution content (including 4K programming) to as close to 8K as possible.
- Enjoy really good brightness, contrast and overall picture quality when viewing most upscaled 4K programming.
- Really impressive selection of features for console and PC gamers, including Samsung Gaming Hub, ALLM and FreeSync Premium Pro support. For compatible games, the TV’s refresh rate can be boosted to 144Hz.
- You’ll pay a rather hefty premium for 8K resolution.
- There’s basically no native 8K content is currently available.
- You do not get Dolby Vision support.
Best 77″ TV for gaming: Samsung S95C OLED TV (2023)
Display Type: OLED | Resolution: 4K | Refresh Rate: 120Hz | Operating System: Tizen | Max. Brightness: Up to 2,000 nits | HDR Support: HDR OLED+, HDR10+, HLG | Main Ports: 4x HDMI, 3x USB, 1x Ethernet | Other Key Features: Samsung Game Hub, multiview support, object tracking sound (OTS+), FreeSync support, Filmmaker mode, Alexa voice assistant | Overall Dimensions: 67.6 x 38.7 x 0.4 (without stand) | Weight: 62.2 pounds (without stand)
If you’re not yet seeking out an 8K resolution TV, but want one of the latest OLED offerings from Samsung, check out the 77-inch version of the S95C. It uses Quantum Dot technology and 8.3 million self-illuminating pixels to showcase vivid and accurate colors with rich contrast. In fact, the AI processor automatically enhances picture quality in real-time in an effort to provide consistent image quality, regardless of what you’re watching. For color accuracy, this TV is Pantone validated.
One thing we really like about the S95C is its thinness (just 0.4 inches), so it looks really sleek hanging on a wall. AI upscaling makes native lower resolution content look as close to 4K as possible. As with most Samsung TVs, this one offers the Samsung Game Hub, so you can experience Xbox cloud-based gaming without a console.
Using the integrated Alexa voice assistant, you control the TV using voice commands, plus other Alexa-compatible smart devices within your home. Yes, this is a higher-end TV offered at a premium price (compared to other Samsung TVs), but seeing your favorite content displayed on the immersive, incredibly bright and extra-sharp OLED display makes this a worthwhile investment.
- Really impressive deep blacks and bright whites provide for superior contrast.
- The TV comes with a solar powered voice remote.
- The display offers minimal reflections from ambient light sources.
- There is no Dolby Vision support.
- The 77-inch version of the S95C is on the expensive side.
- This TV will benefit greatly by adding an optional soundbar or surround sound system to enhance sound quality.
