These are the best 4K TVs for your Chromecast Ultra



A TV is usually a major purchase for any entertainment setup, especially when you're looking for one that can display in 4K and HDR. The Chromecast Ultra is a great streaming device to get the content you love at the highest resolution and dynamic range, but you need a TV that supports the standards as well. The LG CX 4K Smart OLED TV is a beautiful screen that fits in everywhere, with great variances in size, and a feature set that is perfectly ideal for a high-end TV.

Best Overall: LG CX 4K Smart OLED TV

LG's OLED TVs are a thing of beauty. They bring nearly perfect blacks and vivid color with incredibly sharp images and crystal-clear motion. If you want the best of the best in a TV, you'll look for LG OLED. They come in sizes from 48-77 inches, and all come complete with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant built in, plus Dolby Atmos sound, Dolby Vision, HDR10, and HLG for 4K HDR content.

There's more where all that came from. LG's CX series has the Alpha a9 III processor powering everything inside, including the smart TV features, like webOS and ThinQ AI. LG also equipped it with the expected ports, throwing in an HDMI 2.1 for some futureproofing. You also get a Filmmaker Mode to display content in ways that creators intended when they master it in a studio, which goes along with several other viewing options, some of which you may need to experiment with if you put this in a room with changing lighting conditions.

It's also built to handle gaming with low latency — a mere 1ms response time and 120Hz refresh rate — ensuring you don't have to sacrifice that to get this TV. While you do get Dolby Vision, you don't get HDR10+, the main competitor. The TV is amazingly thin at under 2 inches deep at its thickest point, so you do need to be careful handling it. But it will look so flush and pretty when mounting it on the wall.

Pros:

Superior picture quality
Excellent contrast
Wide viewing angles
Great for all types of content
Alexa and Google Assistant built-in
Super thin design

Cons:

Not ideal for really bright rooms
No HDR10+ support
Expensive
