Top Picks The Latest Top 10 (2017-2018) HDTVs – For 2017-2018 the top of the line TVs are 4K Ultra HD TVs. These TVs have four times the resolution of Full HD and have taken over the TV market for larger sets. This is almost the same resolution as the movie theater 4K projectors. Native 4K Content from Netflix, Infinity (Comcast), DirecTV, ESPN and others is here. 4K HDR (high dynamic range) is the latest new technology. HDR makes colors pop, and gives better shadow detail, brighter whites, and deeper blacks.

There are far fewer Full HD TVs this year, as most of the higher end sets now have 4K resolution. The newest LED TVs are very thin, lower in weight, and have high contrast and low energy consumption. OLED TVs are now available in 4K resolution, but only from LG. We also are seeing more Smart TVs with internet capability and WiFi connectivity (including Netflix streaming) and with Quad Core Processors, to speed up Smart TV functions. The big push over the last few years has been the introduction of 4K TVs by all manufacturers. See our 2017-2018 HDTV & 4K TV Buying Guide to help you select a TV. Below are the newest highly rated Top Ten models for 2017-2018 that are currently covered by Smart-Review.
