Top 5 big TVs under $1,000

CNET's picks for the best values in HDTVs under $1,000 and over 50 inches.

I can think of few things more American than getting a giant honkin' TV for a rock-bottom price. Complete the setup with an overstuffed recliner and a cup holder, and you are living the dream.

But finding a great deal on a great big TV can be tough, especially if you actually want the thing to be halfway decent. Luckily, David Katzmaier has been keeping track of the best deals in TVs priced under $1,000 -- but measuring 50 inches and up. In fact, he already wrote about his top picks a few weeks ago .

But don't let that stop you from watching my Top 5 video interpretation . Lots of great stuff in here, plus you get to watch me flip out over remote controls.

While you're at it, be sure to check out my Top 5 on home theater essentials (which presumes you already have one of these giant TVs).
