Best 4K TV Shootout Comparison, Samsung vs. Sony vs. Vizio
All three of our contenders for this years shootout are hugely popular and best sellers in the mid-range 4K UHD market for this year and into 2016. We've compiled a list of what we think are the most important differentiating factors in testing the quality of these 2015/2016 4K UHD TVs Read More...

Best HDTV Shootout Comparison, Samsung vs. LG vs. Vizio
It's always fun to compare different levels of TVs to find out how much the more expensive and lesser expensive HDTVs differ in quality and features. The 3 models listed in this article are sure to be some of the most popular models of 2014 and early 2015. Read More...

Samsung UN65J6300 Review
The bright edge LED lighting makes for a brilliant picture and helps to balance out the downsides of the matte screen by providing more rich colors and a good deal of contrast. That said, from relatively close to front and center we felt the picture displayed was very good with lots of light flow-through. Read More...

Vizio E55-C1 Review
The E55-C1 features full-array LED backlighting instead of the edge-lit variety on most low to mid grade LED TV products. The 55 inch size has 12 zones of Active dimming for enhanced contrast. Read More...

LG 55LF6300 Review
The IPS panel makes big improvements to the side angle, off center viewing quality. We started to see contrast drop off at around the 35 degree off-center mark and it does not degrade as much as non-IPS panel TVs. Other LED Backlit LCD models begin degrading much more quickly and have a more drastic reduction in contrast. Read More...

Sony KDL-48R510C Review
Colors rendition on these new Sony TVs is exceptional and not over-saturated. The fact that the TVs calibrate easily to D6500K speaks to their color accuracy. The backlight is extremely powerful and can overpower color in the R510C so keep it moderated. Read More...

Sharp LC-50LB371U Review
For a TV in this price, I was very pleased with contrast. Dark shadow detail during Noah needed some work during several very dark scenes. There was some false contouring noted during Fifth Element when some dark areas looked splotchy. Read More...

Samsung UN50J5500 Review
This bright 50 inch edge lit LED TV provides a brilliant picture. The edge lighting also helps to balance out the downsides of the matte screen by providing rich colors and strong contrast Read More...

Vizio M55-C2 Review
The Vizio M55-C2 is a value oriented 55 inch 4K LED TV that we were eagerly awaiting. The M-series has 32 active zones of full array backlighting compared to the 64 on the P-series 4K Vizio. Read More...

Vizio P552ui-B2 Review
The Vizio P552ui-B3 is a value oriented 55 inch 4K LED TV that we were eagerly awaiting nearly the whole of 2014. The price for 4K technology sure is coming down quickly in 2015. Pricing for this new Vizio offering looked to be a gamechanger for this year. Read More...

Samsung UN55HU8550 Review
The UN50HU8550 4K LED TV from Samsung is their top of the line TV that has the standard flat design. The HU9000 above it gets the curved design and a few more picture quality features. An important thing to note is the flat design keeps the price down. You still get some of the best picture quality from an LED TV, and it's 4K. Read More...

Sony XBR-55X900B Review
The standout features of the 55X900B are 1) the X-tended Dynamic Range feature which allows for more active zone control of the LED backlighting and 2) the Side Mounted speakers eliminate the need for a surround sound system. The side mounted speaks look a bit retro but the TV otherwise is so striking that overall it's a unique and great look. Read More...

LG 55EA8800 Review
LG deems this the Gallery OLED. The name comes from the frame around the screen that doubles as a speaker. This one lacks the 4K resolution and the curved screen, but we don't really see those things as a fault. A 55-inch 1080p OLED screen is capable of producing beautiful images, especially with the right source material. Pricing for this elegant TV starts at around $5,500. Read More...

Samsung UN60H7150 Review
Just like the F7100 from last year, the light flow through created by the LED Backlight on this TV is amazing. We consider it one of this TVs best picture quality characteristics. LED edge lighting is known to cause uniformity issues, but it can be addressed with a simple adjustment. Read More...

Sony KDL-50W800B Review
The X-Reality PRO processing engine and the 120Hz native refresh rate are the star features here. You get top quality images associated with the Sony brand as well as great refresh rates for live sports programming, gaming, and fast action. Sony went with active 3D technology on this one. Read More...

Samsung UN65HU9000 Review
It is one of the strongest in the market when it comes to LED edge-lighting. The powerful LEDs really give the HU9000 a step up in terms of black levels and peak whites. The 65HU9000 has best in class color and contrast that create superior images with excellent light flow through. Images on screen are crisp and refined. Read More...

Sony KDL-70W850B Review
The W850B is the same as the W800B, but with larger screens. The X-reality Pro picture processing engine is the powerhouse behind rich and crisp images. The color rendition is realistic and we don't see the 'pop' of over-saturation present in many LED TVs this year. Background noise and motion artifacts are kept at a minimun as well. Read More...

LG 55LB7200 Review
The 55LB7200 is a mid-tier LED TV with plenty to offer in terms of picture quality. Local dimming is one of the star picture quality features as it helps to boost the overall contrast in images. It is part of the Triple XD picture processing engine and is called TruBlack Control. Read More...

Samsung UN55H8000 Review
Colors really pop on the 65H8000 for an LED TV, but the backlight can sometimes work against itself. Just keep the level between 70-80% and the picture won't suffer. From up-converted content color flow is much better than other TVs on the market. Read More...

Sharp LC-70UQ17U Review
The TV gets the new and interesting Quattron+ picture technology combined with THX certification and Revelation Technologies to give it an edge over the SQ series. This TV can accept 4K signals thanks to Quattron+ as well. Sharp is calling this one "future-proof" thanks to that addition. Read More...

Samsung UN48H6350 Review
The Samsung UN48H6350 replaces the F6300 series from last year. There aren't too many upgrades from last year. The bump to a quad core processor for speedy Smart Hub functionality is the most important while thinner bezels around the screen add to the aesthetic value. Read More...

LG 65LB7100 Review
We though LG's Passive 3D was some of the best performing 3D out there last year. I think it's about as good if not equivalent to active 3D now. The numbers work better for active (1080p to each eye), but when I view the 3D content I cant really tell the difference. Read More...

LG 47LB6100 Review
The 47LB6100 has plenty of picture quality features, though many were dropped that are on the LB6300 above this one. The LB6100 is really aimed at shoppers looking to score a deal for a decent sized LED backlit TV. The loss of the IPS panel is the biggest hit on side viewing angles and bright color reproduction. Read More...

LG 42LB5800 Review
The 42LB5800 goes pretty light on the picture quality features, but that is a trade-off for keeping the cost down. The LB5800 is really aimed at shoppers looking to score a deal for a decent sized LED backlit TV. Since it is a backlit TV we see good levels of brightness. Read More...

LG 47GA6400 Review
Picture quality on the 47GA6400 is very strong for a mid tier LED TV. The bright LED backlights push a lot of light through the panel to create bright and clear pictures. Excellent light flow-through is one of the highlights of this TV. Read More...

Toshiba 58L7350U Review
The L7350 uses active 3D technology and the quality was much better than expected. It's hard to believe I was still impressed even viewing the 4K entry from Toshiba. The benefit of using active 3D over passive 3D is the greater sense of depth in the image. Read More...

Toshiba 50L7300U Review
Picture quality on the 50L7300U is strong in certain areas while it lacks in others. Most importantly, detail and color performance were two high points I noticed when viewing the TV. Read More...

Panasonic TC-L50ET60 Review
The IPS LED panel is is a driving force of the of picture quality on the 50ET60. Add the Clear Panel Pro filter from the DT60 and WT60 series for clear images with wider viewing angles and better off-center color reproduction than a lot of the LCD/LED TVs on the market. Read More...
