We review a lot of TVs here at CNET, but the list below represents only the best.
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.
Sony's wedge-shaped KDL-W850B TV offers better picture quality, albeit for a higher price, than many big-screen LCDs.
The Samsung UNF6400 offers attractive styling and a full complement of features for the price but is outstripped by rivals for performance.
Despite picture quality that's just average, the Samsung UNH6350's high-end features and design for a midrange price will win plenty of converts.
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 Panasonic AS530 series LCD ain't no plasma, but it offers attractive design and decent image quality for a budget price.
We liked the picture quality-to-performance propositions of Vizio's 1080p resolution M-Series and E-Series TVs last year, which bodes well for the new 4K-resolution P-Series.
Pricing not available
Although it offers pedestrian picture quality for the price, the Samsung UNH6400 has a wonderful remote, a full feature set, and very sleek design.
Vizio introduced its first-ever pedestal-style sound bar at CES 2014, looking to compete with similar models from Bose and Zvox.
The big-screen Sony R520/R550 series offers the best value you'll see from the company this year.
