The Bottom Line While the Philips PFL5706/F7's MediaConnect option may speak to PC-centric video-streaming fans, other buyers might balk at the TV's picture-quality and control flaws. The Vizio E series offers picture quality nearing the more expensive M series and is a very good choice if you value its Smarts and styling. Beyond its "dumb" feature set and lack of inputs, the Samsung UNF5000 LED LCD offers plenty of TV for the money. The midlevel price and outstanding quality of the Panasonic TC-PST60 series make it our strongest TV recommendation ever.
