Best HDTV Shootout Comparison, Samsung vs. LG vs. Panasonic
We've compiled a list of what we think are the most important differentiating factors in testing quality of these HDTVs and performed the following shootout based on our findings through some very thorough investigation. 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...

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...

Sony KDL-48W600B Review
One note about black level depth on the KDL-48W600B is that they look jet black on the top and bottom bars in a 16:9 format mode when directly viewed front and center. However colors can be a little more washed out on the picture itself due in part to the anti reflective coating on the screen of the W600B. Read More...

Samsung UN55H6400 Review
From front and center, black levels on the UN55H6400 are great. Other dark areas of the screen showed just as good performance without too much loss of detail. Blacks are not as stout as the Plasma TVs of the past. Read More...

LG 47LB6300 Review
The IPS panel makes big improvments to the side angle viewing quality. We started to see contrast drop off at around the 45 degree off-center mark. Last year's LG's saw the same amount of degradation at around 25 degrees. Colors stay vibrant as you move off-center as well thanks to the IPS panel. 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...

Samsung UN32H5500 Review
1080p resolution is an important feature for many buying a new TV. A 32 inch screen may not really need a full HD screen, but it is nice to have. The main reason is that most broadcasts and video games are still 720p. Read More...

Sharp LC-60EQ10U Review
A bright and colorful picture is the highlight of the Sharp LC-60EQ10U LED TV. The Quattron color technology adds yellow subpixels to the basic red, blue, green format to get even more color possibilities out of the display. Much more accurate color is the result. The 60EQ10 is an excellent performer in a bright room viewing situation. Read More...

Vizio E480i-B2 Review
The Vizio E480i-B2 is loaded with picture features that really boost the picture quality. The full-array LED backlighting achieves much better peak whites and deeper blacks than seen on previous versions of the E series. 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...

Sony XBR-55X900A Review
This is one of the best pictures on the market as of this writing – probably the best if you ignore side angle viewing. Even after calibrating it away from the over-hyped preset settings, it displays a realism and natural picture which is only equaled by the Sony W900A. Read More...

Samsung UN55F9000 Review
The clear coat, rich black screen and the high quality edge lighting LEDs allow for colors to pop and give a real sense of depth when viewing HD quality source material. In-picture Light flow is the best of any TV you will find on the market. 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...

LG 55EA9800 Review
The EA9800's picture is not affected by viewing angle or ambient brightness either. Contrast and color deterioration are basically non-existent due to the RGBW display LG uses in this set. The problem of motion judder is addressed in this OLED TV as well. Read More...

Samsung UN55FH6003 Review
The Samsung UN55FH6003 is the same TV as the FH6030, but without the active 3D playback. This drives the price down by about one hundred dollars, making it a good value option. Samsung is keeps the feature set pretty slim on this one in order to keep the price tag attractive 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...

Vizio M471i Review
Black levels are reasonably saturated, and the TV certainly has plenty of brightness in whites thanks to the backlight. Image edges don't compete with some of the better Sony TVs on the market, but they were far from bad. From a calibrated picture setting, we noticed a slight push toward yellow/green in color rendition. Read More...

Sony KDL-40R450A Review
The KDL40R450A has an anti glare flat coat to the screen that actually ends up reflecting light rather than keeping it from irritating the picture. It results in some glare from in-room lighting. It's not a favorite feature, but it is cheaper to produce and helps keep the cost down. 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...

Samsung UN60F7500 Review
The 60 inch version of the F7500 is the largest of the series. The UN60F7500 is all about picture quality, internet connectivity, and high end features, and is a half step down from the top of the line F8000 series. Read More...
