Vizio M-Series (2017)

Best mid-priced picture for the money

Design : 7Features : 9Performance : 8Value : 10
No other TV offers this much picture for this little cash. Its value proposition is among the best we’ve ever seen on a TV this high-performance and well-equipped.

TCL S405 series Roku TV (2017)

Best built-in smart TV system

Design : 7Features : 9Performance : 8Value : 10
Roku is our favorite platform for streaming apps like Netflix, and it’s even better baked into the TV. Image quality on this 4K TCL won’t blow you away, but it’s perfectly fine for most, especially at this price.

Vizio E series 2017 (43- to 55-inch)

Best budget TV for picture quality

Design : 7Features : 9Performance : 8Value : 10
It can’t match the image quality of its bigger brothers, but Vizio’s smaller E series sets do deliver a better picture than the TCL above. If you prize image quality over streaming in your budget TV, this is a good choice.
