We review a lot of TVs here at CNET, but the list below represents only the best.
The Samsung HU9000 has straight-up great picture quality, design and features, but the gratuitous curved screen adds very little to the viewing experience and way too much to the price.
If you can stand its speakers, Sony's XBR-X900B will reward you with the best combination of audio and video quality you've ever seen (or heard).
The Sony KDL-W800B series is a classy television with excellent color and shadow detail, but in pure bang-for-buck terms, its black level can be bettered for much less.
Excellent picture quality, well thought-out features and distinctive design make the Vizio M-Series seem like a much more expensive TV than it really is.
With picture quality that outdoes that of numerous more-expensive TVs, Vizio's E series likely represents the best value of 2014.
Vizio's new Vizio Co-Star LT smart-TV box has an HDMI input for integrating cable and onboard apps.
Sony's wedge-shaped KDL-W850B TV offers better picture quality, albeit for a higher price, than many big-screen LCDs.
The ViewSonic Pro8200 may seem "cheap and cheerful," but its sub-par image quality against rivals makes it a worse value.
If you can afford the JVC DLA-X700R -- and the dedicated room, high-quality screen, and professional calibration required to make it shine -- its spectacular picture quality is worth the steep investment.
With its solid performance, beautiful design, and nifty picture-in-picture, it's hard to argue that there's a better way to watch YouTube videos on your mobile device.
