The Bottom Line The Panasonic E50 is a budget TV with a smattering of features but little to recommend in the way of picture quality. The midlevel price and outstanding quality of the Panasonic TC-PST60 series make it our strongest TV recommendation ever. Charging the right price for a very good picture, Panasonic's E60 LED LCD is one of the best values available among midrange TVs. 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. The Vizio M-Series offers a potent combination of excellent design, decent picture quality, and a pocket-friendly price.
