Test Results

HD picture quality

HD picture quality

Evaluated using basic HD content (non-HDR). Based on objective tests and subjective evaluations by expert testers after TV is adjusted using standard picture controls to achieve the highest-fidelity image possible. Tested image attributes include detail, color accuracy, and contrast, using videos from a Blu-ray player, cable box, and professional broadcast equipment. All video content is played through the TV's HDMI inputs. Some tests are also performed via the TV USB input.

UHD picture quality

UHD picture quality

Evaluated using basic, non-HDR, 4K-UHD content. (HDR content is tested separately) Based on objective tests and subjective evaluations by expert testers after TV is adjusted using standard picture controls to achieve the highest-fidelity image possible. Tested image attributes include detail, color accuracy, and contrast, using signals from a Blu-ray player, cable box, and professional broadcast equipment. All video content is played through the TV's HDMI inputs. Some tests are also performed via the TV USB input.

HDR

HDR

HDR (High Dynamic Range) indicates how effectively the TV can reproduce the enhanced quality of HDR content. The benefits of HDR are best revealed on a display with a high peak brightness capability which allows them to present images with more realistic lighting and highlights. Very effective HDR can also reproduce fine gradations of shadow detail from black to white, and display a wider range of colors. Ineffective HDR presents images that are no better than regular standard dynamic range (SDR) TVs.

 /  5
Viewing angle

Viewing angle

Evaluation of picture quality for clarity, color accuracy, and contrast at various horizontal and vertical viewing angles, typically a challenge for LCD TVs. Excellent = Unlimited, Very Good = Wide, Good = Moderate, Fair = Narrow, and Poor = Very Narrow

 /  5
Motion blur

Motion blur

Evaluation of how well the display can present a blur-free image during motion scenes. If the TV's blur reduction feature also invokes a "smooth motion" effect, the feature will be turned off for our test.

 /  5
Sound quality

Sound quality

Evaluated from the set's built-in speakers with subjective testing by a listening panel, and support from audio test equipment. In our judgments we listen for overall clarity of sound, depth of bass, effective volume level, and audible distortion, from dialog, music, and movie soundtrack content.

 /  5
Versatility

Versatility

Indicates features that increase a TV's utility or capabilities. These include access to popular Internet streaming services, Web browsing, UHD capability, number of HDMI and USB inputs, support for various media, and other useful features.

Ultra HD Picture Quality

Ultra HD Picture Quality

The Ultra HD picture quality rating represents a composite of observations relating to this TV's ability to reproduce full UHD image detail when presented with 4K content, and how well it upconverts HD source material to the TV's higher native UHD resolution. We also inspect 4K photo quality and 4K video support when content is played via a USB flash drive.

 /  5
Ultra HD performance

Ultra HD performance

The Ultra HD performance rating represents a composite of observations relating to this TV's ability to reproduce full UHD image detail when presented with 4K content, how well it handles HDR (High Dynamic Range) if it supports this capability, how well it upconverts HD source material to the TV's higher native UHD resolution. We also inspect 4K photo quality and 4K video support when content is played via a USB flash drive.
