If you want to know what the best of the best of the best feels like, sit in front of an LG C1 for an hour. The 4K OLED television’s display ditches LCD TVs’ traditional backlit design, opting instead for pixels that create their own light, resulting in gorgeous colors, crisp images and striking contrasts, even in low-light scenes. The C1 series (from $1,099) also offers a high-speed 120 Hz refresh rate and support for gamer-friendly features like AMD FreeSync and NVIDIA G-SYNC, making it one of the best options for pairing with the new Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 consoles. No wonder it was the year’s best-selling premium TV—the C1 series even won a Technical and Engineering Emmy in January, as they’re often used as reference monitors for movie production and optimization. —Patrick Lucas Austin
