Stuff Malaysia Readers' Choice Awards: TV of the Year 2016 finalists

Which of these blockbuster TVs deserves to hold court in your home?

Ah, TVs with all their confusing jargon. At the end of the day, it’s the viewing experience that counts.

It's a combination of things that creates that sweet spot. From image to sound quality and even overall design, these are our picks for top telly time. Which is the prettiest picture of them all? The tech democracy will decide.


If you hate cable clutter, the Bravia Z9D does a great job of fixing that problem with its stand and overall minimalist design. Combining good colour balance and beautiful 4K detail, the Bravia Z9D is a sight for sore eyes.


This OLED TV does really deep blacks yet has the power to put on a technicolour show, popping with the brilliants bursts of colour you’d expect from HDR content. Running the ever intelligent WebOS, the physical and UI design makes this telly the perfect enabler of your couch potato dreams.

Samsung UA55KS7000

Start with a generous dollop of Quantum Dot technology, then add more brightness than ever, top it off with 4K clarity, and you’ve got yourself a TV you can’t tear your eyes away from. Even when it comes to the rear design where Samsung has shown impressive attention to detail. With that price point, its appeal is hard to beat.

Panasonic Viera TH-65DX900S

Nobody would blame you for mistaking this TV for a work of art. Hexa Chroma Drive Pro tech gives you the best colour reproduction so every movie you watch is less Marvel-dull and more Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It runs Firefox OS for easy interaction and packs both HDR and 4K for eye-popping visuals. 

Philips 4K Ultra Slim TV 75PUT7101

It’s big. It’s atmospheric. It’s Philip’s Ambilight technology that’s causing the glow around the TV’s three sides for a more immersive viewing experience, and not magic as you originally thought. The power of a quad-core processor, pin-sharp 4K resolution combined with Android makes this a force to reckon with.
