Our Top Recommended TVs for your Home Office
We chose the below televisions for your home office based on dual use functionality. All of the below TVs function just as well as a PC monitor as they do as a television. Various sizes are recommended from a 22" for your desktop to a 46" that can be used for presentations or for keeping up with the news or the game while you're working.
Samsung LN22D450 Editor's Choice: Quality
22" LCD TV
Samsung's 2011 4 Series LCDs are a step up from the 3 series. Available in the same sizes they still feature a 60Hz, 720p, CFL backlit panel, with SRS TruSurround HD. They add a third HDMI input, the ability to watch video off a USB thumb drive and Samsung's AnyNet+ which allows communication between similarly equipped Samsung home theater equipment.
26" LED TV
The LD-2655VX is focused on energy efficiency, the ad campaigns for the television promote that it uses less energy than a 100 Watt light bulb. The 42" is LED edge-lit and features a 1080p, 120Hz panel. The 26" size is great for those looking for a little larger kitchen TV.
Samsung LN26D450 Editor's Choice: Value
26" LCD Television
You'll be surprised at the big, bold colors that this 26" LCD HDTV delivers. Its images are lifelike and crystal clear. The picture quality is sharp. And action scenes look like they should--with smooth motion. The classic black bezel also has a new twist--the bottom bezel and neck are transparent, creating a more modern look. Enjoy your favorite movies and TV shows in bright, vivid color with this SAMSUNG LCD HTDV.
Samsung UN32D6000 Editor's Choice: Quality
32 inch LCD TV
The UN32D6000 presents an interesting spectacle in the 32-inch market. It will not be the most price competitive TV but will offer a superb picture for HD programming for those wanting a very sleek small TV. The D6000 represents a mid tier unit in Samsung's lineup but the 32D6000 is one of the top tier Samsung 32" TVs available.
37" LCD Television
Everyone is on the the latest and greatest 3D TVs and LED TVs, but dont underestimate some of these excellent little LCD TVs for delivering the best value (along with plasma) in the marketplace. From past reviews and viewing at CES we know that this TV has a strong picture performance at a value oriented price.
- 1080p HD Resolution
- Clear Voice II
- AV Mode II (Cinema, Sports, Game)
40" LCD Television
One growing picture trait of the Sony LED TVs that sets it apart from the competition is the colors are not oversaturated. In fact, for an edge lit LED backlit LCD TV they are somewhat subdued. I like the color accuracy emphasis of the newer Sony TV genre and that's also true of this edge lit LED Sony KDL-40EX520 a direct replacement for the Sony KDL-40EX500 that we reviewed last fall.
Sony has long touted the processing chip set engines in their TVs. We found the EX500 processing a poor performer. Sony is touting a new processor in the 40EX520 with the X-Reality processing engine (single chip in this model). This chip features some upgraded image enhancement to help improve picture quality and eliminate those nasty motion artifacts we found on the EX500.
46" LCD TV
Alongside it's LED TV series, Samsung continues to offer traditionally backlit LCD televisions. The D630 series replaces 2010's C630 series. We liked the C650 series a lot when we reviewed it and found it to be a great value with a great picture. The 630 line was the same as the 650 without internet connectivity features. This year the 630includes WiFi and the new Allshare feature but is still doesn't go online.
An articulating or swing arm mount is a good choice for the office. You can move the TV out of the way when needed and position it so it can be seen from anywhere in the room. Below are some articulating mounts we think would be a good choice for your home office
