The Bottom Line The Samsung F7100 series offers a gorgeous design and impressive features, but "just OK" picture quality makes it a poorer value than its rivals. The midlevel price and outstanding quality of the Panasonic TC-PST60 series make it our strongest TV recommendation ever. The excellent yet expensive Samsung UNF8000 is a tour de force of LED LCD TV design, features, and picture quality.
