The Bottom Line While it may sport high-end looks and a cutting-edge remote, LG's G2 series is a disappointing attempt at Google TV with ho-hum picture quality and a frustrating user experience. The Vizio M-Series offers a potent combination of excellent design, decent picture quality, and a pocket-friendly price. The midlevel price and outstanding quality of the Panasonic TC-PST60 series make it our strongest TV recommendation ever. Although its picture quality falls short of the competition, the Samsung UNF6300's high-end features and design for a midrange price will win plenty of converts.
