Our Top Picks

Best Overall: TCL 65R617 65-Inch 4K Ultra HD Roku Smart LED TV

TCL 65R617

With an excellent blend of technology, image superiority, and value, TCL’s 65R617 is our top Roku TV choice. Though the brand dominates the field no matter what size you're considering, their 65-inch 4K Ultra HD experience delivers a host of specs and manages to come in under $1000. Featuring Dolby Vision HDR, HDR10, and a wide-color gamut, the TCL 65R617 is set to impress at your next movie night. Being a member of TCL’s 6-Series televisions, the 65R617 also features contrast control zone technology for a more stunning experience.

Considering the 65-inch TV combines CCZ technology (for individually optimized contrast), NBP Photon technology (for more vivid colors), IPQ engine (for accurate color performance), and HDR Pro Gamma technology, the 65R617 is hard to beat. Other impressive specs that set this TV apart include its 120Hz Clear Motion Index, 1.07 billion display color rating, and built-in high-speed 802.11ac Wi-Fi for streaming your favorite content. Inputs include three HDMI ports, an RF input, an ethernet port, a 3.5mm audio out jack, and a digital audio optical port.

Best Value: TCL 50S425 50-Inch 4K Roku TV


The TCL 50S425 is a great option if you want a larger 4K TV on a budget. It has all the features you need for watching all your favorite media and gaming with a fantastic picture quality that seems more expensive than it is. The 50-inch screen has 4K Ultra HD and HDR10 so you get a crisp, first-rate display. Sure, there are other Roku TVs loaded with additional bells and whistles. But the TCL 50S425 is still a spectacular value if you're in the market for an affordable 4K TV.

The TCL 50S425 is also a solid option for gaming. Switching on the Game Mode setting reduces input lag, which is especially important for action games or first-person shooters. Connecting external devices shouldn’t be an issue either; the TV comes with three HDMI ports, a USB port, Optical Audio Out ports, and an Ethernet port.

Best Budget: TCL 40S325 40 Inch 1080p Smart LED Roku TV

If you're shopping on a budget, don't worry; TCL's 40S325 features a 40-inch FullHD 1080p display with a backlit LED panel for less than $200. The picture itself may not blow higher-priced models out of the water, but the Full HD resolution display still provides a crisp and enjoyable watching experience. For connecting to any of Roku's online experiences, the TV also features built-in Wi-Fi. If you need to plug in any of your favorite peripherals, the television features three HDMI ports, one composite A/V input, a digital optical audio output, 3.5mm audio out jack, and RF input. A more humble offering than the other options on this list, we recommend the 40S325 if you need an upgrade, and need one now. Otherwise, we do suggest looking at some of our 4K recommendations for a TV that offers a bit more longevity.

Best Splurge: TCL 75R617 75 Inch 4K UHD Smart Dolby Vision Roku TV

The TCL 75R617 delivers jaw-dropping quality in a 75-inch behemoth of a screen. The panel features a brilliant 4K UHD picture to bring all your favorite content to life, in addition to Dolby Vision HDR technology, TCL’s Contrast Control Zones (CCZ) for optimized contrast, NBP Photon technology for vivid colors, iPQ Engine for accurate colors, and HDR Pro Gamma. Something this large should also turn an eye and the TCL 75R617 certainly does with its brushed metal design.

An input powerhouse, the TCL packs a vast array of inputs for connecting external devices including three HDMI ports, a composite video input, one SPDIF digital audio optical port, and a 3.5mm audio out jack. The only missing inputs that you might want to hook up to this monster include old analog inputs such as VGA and component video. The TCL 75R617 won't leave you behind when it comes to your Roku experience; however, as it features high-speed 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

Best Budget Large Screen: TCL 65S517 65-Inch 4K Ultra HD Roku Smart LED TV

Looking for an extra-large screen, but don't want to obliterate your wallet in the process? If so, TCL's 65S517 65-Inch Roku television might be the perfect choice for you. It may still seem a little expensive, but for a TV this size, we promise it's a budget bargain coming in at nearly half the price of competing models. The 65S517 is a 5-Series TV as opposed to TCL's newer 6-Series, but you'll find few differences that merit such a massive price difference.

The TCL 65S517 features a 65-inch 4K 120Hz panel, along with Dolby Vision HDR, HDR10, and a wide color gamut. The only missing upgraded component is TCL's CCZ technology for enhanced contrast. Otherwise, you're still encountering a cinema-worthy experience. The port selection on this television includes three HDMI ports, an RF connector, composite connection, 3.5mm audio out jack, optical audio out, and an ethernet port. As with all other high-end TCL Roku TVs, this model also includes high-speed 802.11ac Wi-Fi. 

Best Small Screen: TCL 28S305 28-Inch 720p Roku Smart LED TV

Sometimes you don't want the biggest screen you can find, but rather, something that can fit on a dresser or in a cramped apartment living room. If you're looking for a small TV at a great price, then you should check out the TCL 28S305, a 28-inch television that's ideal for compact spaces such as the bedroom or kitchen. Though it features a lower-resolution 720p panel (we do wish it featured FullHD), its 28-inch size and the typical distance from which you'd view it will still deliver crisp and bright imagery.

The TCL 28S305 doesn't feature any of the more advanced technology that its bigger siblings do (no HDR or high refresh rates here), so if you're looking for something to complement movie night, we do recommend looking at other selections. That being said, the 28S305 is still a wonderfully affordable and tiny television coming in at under $150 and it features the same ports as many of its rivals including three HDMI ports, an RF port, a composite port, a 3.5mm audio out jack, and optical audio out.

Best 32-Inch: TCL 32S327 32-Inch 1080p Roku Smart LED TV

If a smaller television at a lower price point is what you're after — but you also don't want to make too many sacrifices when it comes to resolution — try the TCL 32S327 on for size. This 3-Series television lacks HDR, but it does offer a higher-resolution 1080p panel. Additionally, the TCL 32S327's display delivers with a 120Hz refresh rate for smoother imagery. In addition to accessing Roku services through the TV's 802.11 Wi-Fi, you can input your favorite external devices via three HDMI ports, a composite port, a digital optical audio output, a 3.5mm audio out jack, and an RF input. As with all of TCL televisions, the 32S327 does feature an LED-backlit display, so while you won't get the color vibrancy you would find on an HDR panel, this display is nothing to turn your nose up at.

Best 55-Inch: TCL 55S405 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD Roku Smart LED TV

With an abundance of affordable TVs in the 40-inch space and a few enormous TVs measuring 65+ inches, we didn't want to leave 50-inch options by the wayside. If your current home entertainment setup is poised to fit a television of its dimensions, then look no further than this beautiful TCL 55S405 with 4K Ultra HD and HDR10 support. Part of TCL's 4-Series, the 55S405 offers top-notch image quality at a sub-$400 price tag.

While you won't find TCL's fancier wide color gamut and contrast control zone technology on this model, you will still find a great viewing experience. Set with the most basic level of HDR and a 120Hz panel, you'll enjoy watching sports and movies with Roku services. Inputs included with this particular model include three HDMI ports, an RF port, a composite port, a 3.5mm audio out jack, optical audio out, and an ethernet jack. Of course, you'll also find 802.11 Wi-Fi for streaming your favorite content.
