Best first half of 2018 LCD-LED TV

LCD-LED technology is the one offered by most televisions, known as LED TVs. This 2018 and already in 2017 are presented several OLED of different brands.

We can differentiate two groups of LED TV according to its panel: IPS vs VA.
Summarizing the IPS panels offer a greater viewing angle so they are recommended to watch from the front or from the sides, their black level is lower so they are not recommended to watch the TV in the dark. VA panels offer higher levels of blacks so they are good for viewing in dark or lighted halls, but better from the front.

The Best LCD-LED TVs for first half of 2018

All major brands offer high-end models with this technology, but also offer OLEDs or QLEDs (in the case of Samsung).
The best TVs of each brand are: Sony XE9305, Samsung MU9000, LG SJ950V and Panasonic DX902B.
These models share several features in addition to LED technology. All are Smart, compatible with HDR 10bits panel and 4K resolution. All are available in 55 inches and its price is high.

The black level and viewing angle is the main difference from LG SJ950V, as its panel is IPS. It is a model very similar to the rest of the NanoCell series like the SJ850V. Color reproduction is good and is compatible with all HDR formats: HDR10, DolbyVision and HLG.

Panasonic maintains the 2016 DX902 as the best LCD-LED, still one of the best in the control of TV Zones offering blacks and brightness control of the best LCD. The panel is VA and is the only one with 3D.

Sony XE9305 is VA and enhances the model from the previous year with the new X1 Extreme processor. Compatible with HDR10 and future upgrade to DolbyVision.

The Samsung MU9000 is not the best Samsung of the year, which features QLED models but they are very expensive, we compare them (for their price) with OLEDs. This MU9000 is curved but the MU8000 is the same with flat screen. They are VA and offer a sufficiently bright image maintaining a good level of black. The worst is its viewing angle.

The price for 55-58 inches is £2000-2500 depending on the store, offers etc, ...
The Sony is the most expensive, at least output, very close to the Samsung MU9000. The Panasonic as it has been a year for sale, its price has already stabilized and we do not think it goes much lower. If you go to watch the TV from the sides or you have large family the LG better because of its greater viewing angle. If you want to enjoy cinema in the dark we recommend the Sony XE9305 with good black and good color reproduction, although the brightness for HDR images is perhaps better the Samsung MU9000.
