Huge TVs are one thing, but gigantic TVs are on another level. I found myself diving into the world of top 85-inch TVs to truly indulge in an oversized display. This colossal screen size is ideal for an enhanced home theater or gaming experience, guaranteed to astound you.

Huge brands like Samsung, Sony, and LG have produced large-screen flagship models, mostly packed with tons of really cool features. These big-screen TVs turned the game on its head, from OLED screens and expanded voice controls to 4K/8K and object-tracking sound capabilities. Furthermore, all of these come with a smart TV setup, ensuring I get all the modern digital convenience from just one device.

But before I forked out thousands of dollars on an 85-inch TV, I made sure I had enough room for it and sat far away (10-12 feet) enough to enjoy it fully. That said, what are the best 85-inch TV options available today?

My top pick is the Samsung TU-8000 Series because of its sleek design and top-of-the-game specs. The screen gives me a 4k display using Crystal UHD technology, while the sound quality is on point, and the screen is an easy pick for my number one option. The Samsung Q70T Series comes in close second place, and it relies on a Quantum Processor to transform all my media to 4K in stunning fashion. The Sony X80K comes in strong in the third position because of the 4K HDR Processor X1, which delivers a smooth, clear, and rich viewing experience.

Here are more details on my top 10 picks for the best 85-inch TVs in the market.

What Can You Expect From the Best 85-Inch TV?

What Can You Expect From The Best 85-Inch TV?

Image Source: thegoodguys.com

The good thing is that large-format TVs enhance the viewing experience, delivering a truly cinematic one for movies and a fully immersive experience when gaming. For starters, 85-inch TVs come with various technologies and software to produce breathtaking resolutions, crisp detailing, and augmented contrast at their price points. Furthermore, I can rely on the latest panel technology for a skinny, less bulky, sleek TV that compliments my home theater decor.

Big screens also have wider viewing angles and enhance color saturation and significant volume at extreme angles, the latter thanks to Dolby Atmos support. This means everyone gets a full treat regardless of where they sit. These smart TVs also have plenty of smart features, such as voice commands, streaming apps, and screen mirroring capabilities, to give you more control over your TV and deliver a more fulfilling home entertainment experience.

85-inch TVs are equally nifty for gaming since they support Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync technology. This means better contrast and detailing while never worrying about screen tearing and stuttering. More so, automatic low latency modes minimize input lag for nearly real-time reactions, giving you that upper hand you need to stay competitive.

Things To Consider When Buying an 85-Inch TV

Things To Consider When Buying the 85-Inch TV

Image Source: zdnet.com

There’s plenty I considered when buying the best 85-inch TV. After all, I was spending a handsome sum and needed to get full value for my buck.

a) Display Technology

All modern TVs use LED lighting as their screen basis; the differences are in how they are applied to deliver different picture qualities. The best 85-inch big-screen TV will have one of these two:

1) OLED

This is the most expensive technology but also provides the best picture quality. OLED works through individually lit pixels to deliver deep inky blacks for sharper contrast and organic compounds for richer, bright colors.

However, OLED panels still bear the risk of “burn-in” like the older Plasma and Projection TVs when used for too long or the same image displays over an extended period, it can potentially create a ghost image and gradually damage the unit. It’s worth noting the risk is far less likely on OLED than with older technologies.

Additionally, the substrate that produces color in OLED is made from organic materials, which break down over time and use. This makes the panels susceptible to color degradation or dulling. However, this drawback also takes a long before it sets in.

B) QLED

Some TV manufacturers, such as Samsung, have developed proprietary QLED (“Quantum-dot LED”) panels to deliver excellent picture quality at a price lower than OLED. The quantum dots substitute the organic materials found in OLED, thus mitigating the risk of burn-in and color degradation. Since several quantum dots can fit per pixel, QLED TVs deliver excellent detailing, great color ranges, sharp contrast, and volume. However, the picture quality could be more exquisite than OLED.

b) Resolution

There are several resolution options for 85-inch TVs:

  • Full HD 1080p – The earliest of all options, 1080p can produce decent picture quality. As far as 2021 goes, this is arguably a middling resolution, and it might not get the most out of an 85-inch TV.
  • 4K UHD – The new gold standard in home entertainment, 4K delivers enhanced picture quality. 4K capability often includes HDR support, such as Dolby Vision, HDR10/10+, Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG), or Technicolor HDR, to produce near-real-world color and contrast levels.
  • Future-Proof 8K – Brands such as Sony and LG are waltzing into the future with their 8K technology, with four times the pixels of a 4K unit and 16 times that of a 1080p TV. As expected, 8K 85-inch TVs and minimal 8K content are expensive.

The jump in picture quality from 1080p to 4K is quite dramatic, but the same cannot be said of 4K to 8K. But that’s not to say the change is not noticeable to a degree.

c) Refresh Rates

Refresh rate refers to the number of times the image displayed on the screen is refreshed or repainted per second, normally expressed in Hertz (Hz). 60 and 120 Hz are the most common rates, although some units feature variable refresh rates, changing between the two depending on the media shows.

A higher refresh rate means the image is updated faster, hence smoother image motion and enhanced overall picture quality. This is more significant to gamers, often coupled with automatic low latency. Both combine to deliver a more seamless gaming experience, especially during fast-paced action scenes.

d) Additional Factors

I kept in mind other secondary factors when buying an 85-inch TV. For instance, I needed a couple of built-in HDMI ports, particularly an HDMI 2.1, to accommodate current and future UHD sources.

It is hard to get the best sound quality with all the bells and whistles of 85-inch TVs. This is mainly because the characteristic thin but striking profile leaves little room for prominent, powerful speakers. As such, a quality soundbar or surround sound system to get fuller, richer sounds comes in handy.

Even though I dug deeper into my pocket to get an 85-inch TV, I found and took advantage of cheap deals as I was willing to look for a bargain. For example, I checked out upcoming sales and made some minor concessions. The best deals can help you to save a few hundred or even thousands of dollars.

As necessary, I have to ensure a TV has a price protection policy. Most manufacturers give around a one-year warranty. Since a good 85-inch TV is a top-of-the-line device, the components are remarkably resilient and, more often than not, do not need a warranty. But it’s better to have the warranty and not need it than the alternative.

Frequently Asked Questions About 85-Inch TVs

Frequently Asked Questions

Image Source: forbes.com

i) Which One Is Better: OLED To QLED?

Both are great! However, with its cutting-edge technology, OLED produces a broader range of colors, enhanced detailing, and deeper contrasts, culminating in breathtaking picture quality. However, it is worth noting while QLED might not match the former, it does make up for OLED’s drawbacks.

ii) Is An 8K TV Worth It?

Honestly, no. At least not at the moment. 4K resolution is currently the ideal choice for the best 85-inch TV. First, 8K TVs are generally expensive, yet minimal 8K content is available. If you’re considering this capability, it’s only prudent to wait a few more years. In any case, tech evolves insanely fast. It’ll only be a short while before 8K goes mainstream.

iii) What is the best 85” TV on the market today?

The Samsung TU-8000 Series is like having a cinema at home. The picture quality is amazing, thanks to the crystal processor 4K that makes everything look stunning. The colors are so vibrant and realistic that I feel like I’m in the middle of the action. The smart TV features are also very convenient and easy to use. I can switch between Alexa and Bixby to control the TV with my voice or use the Tizen platform to access my favorite apps and streaming services. The HDR technology also enhances the contrast and brightness of the scenes, making them more immersive and enjoyable. This TV is definitely worth every penny!

iv) Is 4k enough for an 85-inch TV?

Image quality is an important factor when choosing a TV. A 4k TV with a refresh rate of 120Hz is a great pick for gaming, watching sports, and watching movies. Lower image quality does not work well for such a large screen size, and luckily, OLED TVs can comfortably accommodate 4k.

v) How far should you sit from an 85-inch TV?

10 or 17 feet away from the screen allows me to enjoy the stunning picture quality that an 85-inch TV offers. Any closer might be harmful to the eyes.

v) Can I mount an 85-inch TV on a wall?

There are a few ways of hanging the TV on the wall using a wall mount to enjoy fantastic picture quality. While it might be uncomfortable to hang a TV on drywall, a good wall mount will do a great job of holding a large TV for fun movie nights.
