  • The 32 inch M321d sells for a modest $398 and is very attractively priced for this size and feature set. The LG 32LN5700 has the same set of features and sells for a bit more. This TV should be a great seller.


  • The TCL LEFHDE3000 series is a no-frills LED backlit HDTV line that delivers a bright picture and sharp image quality at under $360 for 40 inches.


  • Within the TV industry, reviewers and hobbyists alike agree on one thing: Plasma TVs produce a better picture than LCDs. And, hand over heart, it's true. However, LCDs like the Samsung F6300 redeem the fickle technology's mass popularity: This TV's picture looks very good, hands down, and its software works with fluid precision.

    If you're in the market for a mid-sized TV, and want the bright light levels of LCD over the ink-black shadows produced by plasmas, the 46-inch F6300 is a great option.

    The UN55F6300 is strong in value in 2013 in the 60 inch market. By eliminating 3D and micro dimming and sticking with some of the features that matter most, this is a tough model to beat in the mid-level LED TV category.


  • The 42 inch 42LN5700 is a great value piece if you want that great LED edge lit backlighting from LG and tons of features sans 3D at around $650. And since plasma TVs are not produced in the 42 inch size range anymore this is a standout in terms of quality and value for 2013/2014.
