HDTV Reviews

Remember the first time you saw a plasma HDTV? It was love at first sight, right? You had to have one, but the price was way beyond your reach. Over a decade later, plasma TVs are gone, replaced by LCD TVs and, more recently, OLED TVs. Also gone are those super-high price tags. Today you can get a big, bright, ultra-thin Ultra HD TV to serve as the cornerstone of your high-performance home theater system, often at a price that's attainable for most mainstream consumers.

Samsung's 2010 plasma and LED lines include a number of 3D-capable models, but the company offers just one 3D model in the traditional LCD category. The 46-inch LN46C750 uses a CCFL backlight and thus lacks the super-slim form of an LED, but it's a good value in the 3D category. Read More

As a lower-priced model in Sony's 2010 TV lineup, the KDL-46EX500 doesn't offer perks like 240Hz, 3D capability, and BRAVIA Internet Video. This traditional CCFL-backlit LCD does offer a 120Hz refresh rate and a healthy amount of A/V inputs and picture adjustments. Read More
