If you're looking for the best picture for the least amount of money, you can't go past the Panasonic ST50. While it might cost a little more than $1,000 online, it has better picture quality than the best TV of 2011 -- and it cost more than $2,000 at the time! While you can get (marginally) better TVs than this, none of them is as good a value as the ST50.

Not quite as good as the Panasonic ST50 in a lit room -- it lacks the louver filter -- the step-down UT50 is just as good in every other way, and also cheaper.

Sharp is best known for huge TVs such as the 90-inch LE745, but it also makes great midrange TVs as well. The LE640 is a great balance of performance, features, and price.

While Samsung is best known for producing high-quality, budget LCDs, don't write off Toshiba. Its 5200 may be low on features, but it has excellent image quality for the price.

If you're looking to go the whole hog, and want a TV that's ridiculously tricked out, then the ES8000 is your boy. While 2D performance is lacking, this is one of the best sets available for 3D viewing.
