LED TVs are generally higher up the price bar when compared to LCD and even plasma televisions. Nevertheless, budget conscious folk should remember that it's still a pretty good investment considering the power savings you make. This is because LED TVs consume less than half the power that their plasma and LCD counterparts consume.

Low priced LED TVs are typically available from Philips, Toshiba and Vizio, for around $200. You have to be prepared however for smaller screen sizes and fewer features.

While it is great to find a television in a likable budget, there are a few things to make sure you've got. Most LED TVs are Full HD, which means theyĆ¢??re capable of playing true 1080p picture. However, there are still a few models out there that stop at just 720p, and these are certainly not a recommendable investment as 1080p is soon going to become the standard for digital cinema.

A good refresh rate of 120 Hz to 240 Hz is a must. Anything falling below 120Hz is going to make sports scenes and even action movies a very disappointing watch due to much motion blur.

Ascertain that your LED TV has an energy star rating and get the highest rating your budget can offer, or the point of trying to save up on electricity bills in the long run would be lost. Our list below is tailor-made for price conscious folk and is arranged in the ascending order of price and depicts the recommended LED TVs with a Reviewgist score of 60.

    This is a strange little 1080p set. For regular programming, a television of this size does not really benefit from the full HD screen. It would even be hard to see the difference in a 1080p blu ray. The real usefulness of this becomes clear when a computer is hooked up to it. A 1080p monitor allows much more work space than a 720p monitor. 22 inches is a great size for a monitor as well. Think of it as a monitor with a TV tuner built in. At just north of $200, it's not such a bad deal either.


  • 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.


  • 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 Samsung UN50F5500 has a lot to offer even though much has been done away with to get the price down. For the price, the picture quality is strong and the Smart Hub adds more than enough functionality to make this a great choice. Competing models include the 50LN5700 from LG, The Panasonic TC-L50E60, and the Toshiba 50L4300U. The F5500 wins out on price against all three.
