#1. Hisense U6GR
The Hisense U6GR is the best Roku TV we’ve tested. Part of Hisense’s 2021 ULED lineup, it’s one of the only ones that runs the Roku smart interface instead of Android TV. It’s a very good TV, and it looks great in almost any setting. It has fantastic contrast and a decent local dimming feature, resulting in deep, fairly uniform blacks in a dark room. It’s bright enough to overcome glare in most rooms with a few lights around, and it has good reflection handling.
It’s great for gaming, with low input lag and support for FreeSync variable refresh rate technology to reduce screen tearing. It also has low input lag for a responsive gaming experience. However, it has quite a bit of noticeable blur behind fast-moving objects, and it’s limited to a 60Hz refresh rate, which might disappoint some gamers. It’s not very well-suited for co-op gaming, though, as the image degrades at an angle.
The TCL 6 Series/R635 2020 QLED is the best Roku gaming TV we’ve tested. It’s great for gaming, with an impressive response time, resulting in very little blur behind fast-moving objects. It has a fast 120Hz refresh rate, and it supports variable refresh rate technology, which can help reduce screen tearing. It has low input lag in Game Mode, but it’s a bit higher than some high-end TVs, so it’s best for casual gamers.
This TV looks great for gaming in almost any environment. It has a fantastic contrast ratio and okay black uniformity, resulting in deep blacks in a dark room. It’s also incredibly bright, and although it has just decent reflection handling, it can easily overcome glare in a bright room if there’s some sunlight or a few lights in the room. On the other hand, the image degrades at an angle, so it’s not recommended for a wide seating area or couch co-op gaming.
If you find the TCL 6 Series/R635 2020 QLED too expensive, consider the step-down model instead, the TCL 5 Series/S535 2020 QLED. It offers the same great Roku experience, but it doesn’t include the voice remote and isn’t as versatile. Since it can’t get as bright as the more expensive model, it’s not as good for a bright room. It’s also not quite as good for gaming, as it’s limited to a 60Hz refresh rate and doesn’t support any advanced gaming features, like VRR. Still, it has a fantastic native contrast ratio, and the local dimming feature is a bit better, with no black crush, so it’s a better choice for watching movies in the dark.
Overall, the 6 Series is a better choice for most people, mainly because it gets a lot brighter, resulting in a better HDR experience, and it’s a better gaming TV. However, if you’re shopping on a tighter budget and want better local dimming, go with the 5 Series.
If you want something at a low cost, then the TCL 4 Series 2020 is the best cheap Roku TV we’ve tested. It’s available in a wide range of sizes, from 43 to 85 inches, and we all expect them to perform like the 55 inch model we tested. As expected for a low-cost TV, it’s limited in features, but the Roku TV platform is still great to use.
It’s an okay choice for watching a variety of content as it doesn’t have any trouble upscaling lower-resolution content. It’s great for watching content from cable boxes or DVDs as the image won’t look too grainy or blurry, and it displays 1080p and 4k signals very well. It has a VA panel with a high native contrast ratio that displays deep blacks, but like any budget-friendly TV, it lacks a local dimming feature to improve the picture quality in dark scenes.
The best Roku TV you can get in a small size is the TCL 3 Series 2019. It’s an entry-level TV that’s fine enough for most people, and having the Roku TV built-in helps eliminate any extra wires you would have by connecting an external streaming device. It’s available in smaller sizes, from 32 to 49 inches, and most of the models perform like the 40 inch version we tested.
It has a 1080p resolution, so while you can’t watch the latest 4k content, you can still stream shows from Netflix or watch SD and HD cable TV channels. If you want to use it for some gaming, particularly with older consoles, it has low input lag for a responsive gaming experience, and it has a quick response time, but there’s black smearing with dark objects. Although it doesn’t get bright enough to fight a ton of glare, it’s fine if you want to use it in a room with a few lights, thanks to its good reflection handling.
