What is the best 55 to 58 inch television? And which one has the best price-quality ratio? Press and the Consumers’ Association provide an answer.
One of the most popular sizes for televisions is 55 to 58 inches. Is your sofa about 3 to 4 meters from the TV? Then 55-58 inches is a great size for you. Prices vary widely, but it’s almost Black Friday (November 27). There may be nice offers in between, so keep an eye on this in the coming weeks.
The Consumers’ Association tests TVs throughout the year for image and sound quality, ease of use and energy consumption, among other things. A total of 234 televisions have been tested and are widely available.
Of the 69 TVs tested in the 55 to 58 inch category, a model from LG came out as Best in the Test. A TV from Samsung is the Best Buy.
This 4K OLED TV from LG has excellent image quality. The standard image quality is already good, but can be even better by adjusting the image settings. The colors splash from the screen and are natural and vibrant. The contrast is also very good.
As with many OLED TVs, the viewing angle is good. The colors and contrast don’t decrease much when you look at the side of the screen a bit more.
The sound is clear and pleasant. But for a real cinema experience, a soundbar is recommended.
The smart TV system is equipped with many apps, such as Netflix, YouTube, Disney + and Apple TV. The menu works smoothly and starts up quickly. There is a so-called Magic Remote remote control with which you can quickly navigate through the menu.
Note: Two televisions came out as Best in Test in this category. Here we highlight the TV that is the lowest priced.
This LCD LED television from Samsung is a lot cheaper than the LG. The image quality is slightly less, but the image is sharp and shows beautiful, vibrant colors. The contrast is also fine and well balanced. At most, some loss of detail can be seen in dark areas.
The viewing angle is on the tight side. The contrast decreases fairly quickly when you sit more at an angle to the TV. Is that often the case at your home? Then that is something to take into account.
