The Bottom Line Toshiba's L7200U LED TV comes loaded with features, but mediocre picture quality makes its high price tough to stomach. 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 Sharp LE650 series sets the big-screen LCD TV value bar high with very good picture quality for the price. Charging the right price for a very good picture, Panasonic's E60 LED LCD is one of the best values available among midrange TVs.
