No matter what they're called, these are by far the most popular kinds of television, especially now that Panasonic has stopped making plasmas. Here are the best LED LCDs we've reviewed recently.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to technical issues, the order on the list below is currently incorrect. The TVs are not all arranged in descending order of rating. We hope to have the issue resolved shortly.
