It justifiably imposes itself on our choice by its high overall quality.  Going upmarket, the XR-55A95K, which is QD-OLED, offers a brighter image than its younger brother, which is only OLED.  But it is very expensive: 2,790 euros.</p>
<h2>The One 8807 from Philips, a 65-inch simple LCD, but no compromise</h2>

<p><strong>Our opinion:</strong> Although it is only LCD LED (which explains the included price), this television has everything to like.  It should be added to the good condition of the service the Ambilight function that backlights the screen on three sides.  In our eyes, this function is a plus for immersing yourself in the atmosphere of the stadiums, if you put the television in front of a white wall.  Another asset, in our opinion, is the “Game Bar”, an interface dedicated to gaming, which allows easy access to image and sound settings even in the middle of a game.</p>
<h2>75C635 from TCL: a 75-inch with limited performance, but quality given its tight price</h2>
<p>Offering a very large image (75”, ie 1.90 m diagonal) at a tight price, the TCL 75C635 television does not complain about the quality of its 4K panel, which is QLED.

Our opinion: The QLED name of this television hides an LCD screen based on Quantum Dots (or quantum dots) that offers a more active colorimetric spectrum. Nothing to do with OLED! Attention, corresponding to the tight price of the device is the native refresh rate of 50 Hz (50 frames per second). If it can optimize its frequency up to 120 Hz for video games, it is not the ideal model gamers sensible. There remains a very large product, certainly not the best at 75 inches, but it allows you to have fun without having to put a consumer credit on your back.
