If you want to splurge on the best entertainment setup, then you should be willing to go big on a TV (literally). Assuming you have enough space, one of these 75-inch TVs will provide the ultimate immersive experience whether you’re watching TV or movies, or gaming. But just because you have a big screen doesn’t mean the TV will necessarily provide top viewing quality. Read more below to learn about the specs you should consider before you spend on a new big-screen TV.

Specs & Features to Consider

Popular Mechanics’ Consumer Tech test editor, Hunter Fellonol, recommends looking for good resolution and refresh rate for better performance, rather than just splurging for an OLED panel. You might also want to compromise on a lower resolution if it means a higher refresh rate. “As a gamer, I care about HDR peak brightness, backlighting zones, and whether or not the TV has HDMI 2.1 ports,” he explained. Learn more below about what each of these specs means.


Measured by pixel count, a TV’s resolution indicates the level of detail displayed. 1080p is standard now, but many larger screens are opting for 4K resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels), which provides four times the detail of a 1080p screen. 8K TVs are starting to be developed and released, though they’re too expensive for most, and most content is not being created for 8k resolution yet anyway.

Panel Type

You’ll have to choose between OLED and LED/LCD displays. While LED/LCD panels are more affordable and can still provide great image quality (especially with the right resolution and HDR), OLED panels are able to turn individual pixels on or off—allowing for darker darks and more vibrant colors.

Refresh Rate

Measured in hertz (Hz), the refresh rate is just as important as resolution and panel type, since it determines how quickly your screen can refresh frames in one second. 60 Hz is fairly standard and fine for most, but sports fan and serious gamers may want to opt for 120 Hz for even smoother motion. If you’re set on 120Hz, then also make sure the TV has HDMI 2.1 ports for more power and throughput to translate 120 Hz 4K power from consoles, Fenollol recommends.


Displays with high dynamic ranges offer a wider color gamut, meaning better contrast and more detailed images. High resolutions can be even more enhanced with HDR screens—though make sure your gaming console also supports HDR, such as the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.

How We Selected

We interviewed Popular Mechanics’ resident Consumer Tech expert, Hunter Fenollol, for his tips on what features to look for in the best 75-inch TVs. In addition to referencing our previous reporting on the best TVs, we researched other expert sources like Best Products, CNET, Tom’s Guide, and PC Mag to select these top 75-inch TVs. We also took into consideration consumer reviews from retail sites like Amazon and Best Buy to guarantee these models are both powerful and user-friendly.
