Each brand has their own tier of tvs that reflect on their pricing. No brand is superior then another of you're comparing different tiers.

I'd recommend doing more research, rtings is a good place to start.


You're basically asking if Toyota, Honda, Audi and Hyundai is best for quality and longevity, but are you comparing a Corolla with a CRV with a R8 and a Santa Fe?

The answer isn't simple. It depends on which features are important to you. It requires research of every model they offer for sale based on your prioritized needs. It can be a lengthy, tedious process. It's something only you can do.

I'd suggest you start by finding the latest edition of Consumer Reports that did an extensive comparison of 65" TV sets. I can help with that: November 2019, starting at p. 19. That will tell you what features are important, then rate models based on how well they perform on those.

Their TL;DR answer is:
1. You get what you pay for.
2. Sony, LG and Samsung are the highest rated. By a wide margin.
3, Vizio, TCL and Hisense are all at the bottom of the pack.

Why not? LG has one of the best IPS displays for TVs.

Personally I would take a budget LG IPS TV or something like a Vizio, TCL, or Hisense.

High end/better LCD TV use VA panels, not IPS. VA panels have better picture quality due to far superior contrast compared to IPS. IPS is pretty much only useful if you watch TV at an angle.

Well that’s just a preference, it isn’t necessarily better. I prefer IPS for viewing angles, better colours, and less ghosting. I’ve also tried VA monitors (Samsung 32” 4k) and they just weren’t up to my preference.

It's a fact that the majority of TV manufacturers use VA panels in their higher end LCD TVs. The best rated LCD TVs like the Samsung Q90R, Sony X900F/X950G, Vizio P Series Quantum use VA panels. It's a fact that VAs are the best all-around mixed usage LCD panel. They offer the best contrast, fast response times (not as good as TN), good colors (not as good as IPS), better viewing angles than TN (not as good as IPS).
