The best flat panel tvs around 40 inch screen size includes some of the more advanced LED hdtvs. Even though you can get some of the best LCD hdtvs in the market at this size, LED hdtvs will typically outperform them in terms of display performance. However the best LED hdtvs around the 40 inch screen size are much more expensive ( around $1000-$1200)
