Glare-free TVs

Culture
Today�s list almost makes a mockery of the name of this series: Top 5? How about �The 5�. That�s about how few good, non glare HDTV�s are out there. And you�re about to meet them. I�m B.C. with the Top 5 non-glare matte screen TV�s so you can watch TV without having to sit in the dark. #5 is the Toshiba TL515 Series. Gets a �Good� rating from us, does the basics well. It�s an LED LCD with a solid image, but its off angle viewing suffers more than most, its back lighting was a little unstable and you can pass on its passive 3D TV tech. It has Toshiba�s Net TV connected services platform which you�re probably as excited about as the content partners who aren�t on it. #4 is the Sony KDL-EX720 series. This is currently Sony�s least expensive TV with both 3D and 240 Hz refresh rate, as well as their best TV with an anti-glare screen. We rate it �Good� like the Toshiba. Its real energy efficient as well, getting our Green Pick award. #3 steps us up into the �Very Good� category with the Sharp Aquos Quattron LE732U series. It�s a good looking TV but more than that its a BIG TV. 70� TV�s are rare, even in rich folks� homes, but this one could be in yours with a remarkably cheap price around $2,500 street - -great value on a per acre basis, but that doesn�t include construction costs for reinforcing the side of your house where you hang it. #2 is the Samsung LND630 series. This is the non glare TV you want it you just want a great picture and don�t care about built-in internet streaming, 3D and LED backlight. None of that here, but a good picture in a nice looking case with low glare for a good price. Need we go further? Well, before we do, why are there so few TV�s out there with screen that aren�t glossy and annoying? Three reasons: - A glossy screen will tend to look a little sharper as it lacks the matte layer that tends to scatter light coming from the set to your eye. - While a glossy screen attracts reflections like a Kardashians attract stupid, manufacturers say they contain the reflection better instead of smearing it around more like a matte screen. - And finally, glossy screens look shiny and grab your eye in the store. Its that simple. OK, the #1 TV that won�t act like a giant makeup mirror is the LG LW5600 series. This gets you the best image quality in the bunch today. Its an LED LCD and has good internet connectivity for streaming. On the other hand, its passive 3D technology is sort of lame and if you get well off angle, the picture goes to pieces faster than other TV. But if you want the best picture in a non-glare TV, this is your guy. Thanks for CNET�s David Katz who personally LOVES non-glare TV�s and I would recommend you always check out his reviews before you buy any TV or you�ll end up buying some horrible shiny thing and a whole lot of black out curtains to go with it.
