Vizio E600i-B3

A great-performing 60-inch TV for $800, the Vizio E series sets the bar for big-screen gift bang for the buck.

It's also available in a 70-inch size, but for a TV that large we'd recommend going with the slightly more expensive M series (next slide).

Vizio M702i-B3

The truly huge-screen giftee on your list will likely appreciate the 70-inch M, which is still a great value at this size.

And do you want to go truly crazy? It also comes in an 80-incher, although that set is a holdover from 2013 and lacks the smaller Ms' full-array local dimming.

Sharp LC-60LE650U

One of our favorite 60-inch sets in 2013 and a great value then, this Sharp is an even better deal on close-out. We won't tell your recipient if you won't.

Sony KDL-60W850B

Not quite as inexpensive as some of the others on this list, this Sony (also available in a 70-inch size) offers very good picture quality and sleek style.

Vizio P652ui-B2

No, 4K TVs aren't "bargains" yet, but the Vizio P series comes closer than ever. At 65-inches you might begin to appreciate some of the benefits of the extra resolution, if you sit close enough and have the right material.

Epson Home Cinema 5030UB

OK, so it's more expensive than any of the TVs and requires a screen to really shine, but this Epson is such a good value, that it makes the list anyway. The lifetime of admiration it buys from whomever receives this gift is kind of a bargain, right?

BenQ W1070

OK, so here's a real projector bargain. Cheaper than most 60-inch TVs, its image can get more than twice as large, so it will surely please the budding film buff on your list.
