The Bottom Line With the excellent picture quality of the local-dimming LE8500, LG challenges other LCD makers for videophile appeal. The midlevel price and outstanding quality of the Panasonic TC-PST60 series make it our strongest TV recommendation ever. The Vizio M-Series offers a potent combination of excellent design, decent picture quality, and a pocket-friendly price. The Sony W900A is a fine high-end LED LCD television, with excellent color performance and deep black levels.
