"You'll see a lot more 4K TVs", said Consumer Reports' Electronics Editor James Wilcox. Anyway 2017 was a bumper year for 4K TVs, and picking a victor should have been hard for TR Awards.

If you recently purchased a new 4K TV or streaming device in the a year ago, it probably comes with HDR-ready equipment. It basically offers some of the best value and home entertainment quality per dollar spent of all 2017 4K LCD HDR TVs in existence.

The LG OLED B7 is the entry-level model in LG's 2017 family of OLED TVs and the real beauty of this TV is that it has the same panel and picture performance as the higher-priced OLED model in LG's range.

The resolution determines the sharpness of the TV picture. There's 200-plus 4K UHD Blu-ray Discs to play on them.


Video game lovers have likely been eyeing 4K TVs for a while because Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro and the Xbox One S stream 4K content from services such as Netflix.

The X850E model is not quite as flashy as the X900E but it is one of this year's best mid-range 4K TVs with full HDR capacity, stunning color delivery and some truly excellent motion handling performance. In addition to your 4K TV, you also need a fairly robust broadband connection.

In New Zealand, Sky TV, TVNZ and TV3 only broadcast in high definition so if you buy a new 4K television you won't get the full benefit of the extra pixels. From a gaming view point, this is a gamer's dream that comes true in 55-inch and 65-inch models, it also offers support for all four major HDR standards, including Dolby Vision, and features LG's best-in-class Smart TV UI.
