Did you know you can get a 60-inch Smart LED TV for less than a grand? Or for the same price, a 60-inch plasma with even better picture quality? You most definitely can, and we'll show you how. These are our favorite big-screen bargains of the year.

The U50 is simply a phenomenal value considering its excellent picture quality, which blows away anything on this list.

The Samsung E550 is a great choice if you want something with extras like Smart TV and 3D for a price less than $1,000.

With picture quality a notch better than the Vizio E60i-A3's, the smaller Sharp LC-52LE640U still makes a strong case for mainstream TV shoppers.

Aside from arguably nicer styling, this otherwise lackluster TV's main advantage over the U50 is its better performance under bright lights. In such situations, the Vizio is even better, however.
