The Vizio E2VLE series may appeal to budget shoppers who just want Smart TV, but subpar picture quality hurts its chances against the tough competition.
The Vizio E3D0VX series has excellent features for the price, including 3D and robust streaming, but its 2D picture quality is a big Achilles' heel.
The Samsung LND550's mix of features, style and picture quality stands tall among the tough entry-level LCD TV crowd.
Pricing not available
Among the least expensive 120Hz LCDs available, the Vizio E0VL series delivers a decent picture but falls a bit short of competitors.
The midlevel Samsung LN46A550 LCD TV strikes an excellent balance between price and performance.
