We have those things in life which can’t be explained explicably. For instance, why is the sky blue? Were we created or did we evolve? No matter how hard we try, there will always be a wee-bit of doubt and a bit of controversy in these scenarios. And yes, the story is similar when it comes to 60-inch TVs. I mean, it’s funny how most manufacturers choose to manufacture 55-inch and 65-inch and skip 60-inch TVs.

So, in this article, I will walk you through the Top 8 Best 60-inch TVs available on the market. And, I will also offer some tip son how you’ll manage to avoid the knockoffs.

There’re those brands which deserve the title “household names”. Of course, LG ids one of those brands we grew up knowing. I wasn’t always into 60-inch TVs; maybe because they’re not so many.

How to Choose the Right 60-inch TV:
- The Price: Although I don’t advocate for the overpriced showoffs, I wouldn’t advice anyone to go for the cheap knockoffs. Instead, go for the fairly priced 60-inch TVs.
- Resolution: The resolution of a TV has to be considerable if at all you want to get great pictures. Be sure to check this aspect before digging into your wallet.
- Brand: Considering the make might sound a tad unfair since some brands have established a name for themselves. But, who wants a dud? Consider big names like Sony, LG, Samsung, VIZIO, Hisense, etc.
Let’s face it; 60-inch TVs are in a short supply! However, that doesn’t mean we should settle for knockoffs because there aren’t many options. After a long search, we came up with this list of the top brands on the market. Be sure to add one to your cart and enjoy immersive viewing.
