It takes a truly generous soul to give someone the gift of the best picture quality ever. LG's OLED will make you their hero.
As the last great plasma TV, Samsung's 8500 is the perfect gift for the video-quality aficionado who really knows his stuff.
The best 4K TV for picture quality we've tested yet, Sony's high-end X900B also happens to sound great. Whomever receives this TV will thank you, once they get over the size of its speakers.
Forget for a moment about the curve: it neither helps nor hinders (much) the excellence of Samsung's HU9000. If they want a unique big-screen 4K TV, this is a pretty good choice.
Affordable with an excellent picture, Vizio's M proves that you don't have to spend a fortune on a great-quality TV gift.
The cheapest TV on this list, the Vizio E series still deserves an "excellent" picture quality rating thanks to local dimming.
With the versatility to deliver huge pictures even in rooms that aren't completely dark, this high-performance Epson takes the TV gift to another level.
Yes, there are probably projectors that are even better than this available, but we haven't reviewed them. It's the kind of gift they'll remember for a lifetime -- one filled with incredible images.
