What is the best 60 inch TV?

In our opinion, the best 60 inch TV is the LG 60UJ634V, which comes equipped with a stunning WebOS operating system and is slick and easy to navigate.

While its IPS LCD panel won't offer quite the same contrast as an OLED TV or VA LCD panel, its lovely wide viewing angles and vibrant colours ensure a quality viewing experience.

How to buy the best 60 inch TV

When it comes to choosing the best 60 inch TV, there are a few factors and features worth considering before committing to a purchase. These include:

Panel type

Arguably one of the most important things to consider, panel type affects the quality of your visual experience. Generally, experts agree that OLED screens offer the best quality, thanks to a vibrance and depth incomparable to any other.

If you're set on investing in an OLED TV, you may find our pick of the best OLED TVs a handy read.

HDMI ports

For those looking to connect Blu-ray players, games console and more to their TV, a model with plentiful HDMI ports should be considered a priority. Unless you're happy to spend your time plugging and unplugging various devices, that is.

Sound quality

When it comes to ensuring high quality audio, your best bet is to connect your TV to a soundbar, or home cinema system. If this isn't an option you're considering, it's advisable to consider the audio quality offered by your chosen model. 

If you're planning on putting together a home cinema system, read our guides to the best soundbars and the best home theatre speakers, too.

The best 60 inch TV: LG 60UJ634V

Best 60 inch TV: WebOS and an IPS panel make for a tempting proposition

Specifications
Resolution: Ultra HD
Panel type: LCD (IPS)
Smart TV: WebOS
HDR: HDR10, Dolby Vision
Reasons to buy
+Great interface+Decent HDR compatibility
Reasons to avoid
-Audio's nothing special

LG's 60UJ634V is a TV that ticks all our boxes. It's equipped with the firm's stunning WebOS operating system, which is slick and easy to navigate, and the inclusion of Freeview Play is a great way to use catch-up services to access any programmes you might have missed. 

Its IPS LCD panel isn't half bad looking either. You won't get quite the same contrast as you would from an OLED TV or VA LCD panel, but it's got lovely wide viewing angles and great vibrant colours. 

The only mark against this TV is its slightly below-average audio, but since we'd always suggest picking up an external soundbar to complement any TV we're not going to hold that against it too much.
