The Bottom Line The bare-bones Toshiba L5200 series offers respectable value for the money with fine picture quality for an edge-lit LED TV. 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. The excellent yet expensive Samsung UNF8000 is a tour de force of LED LCD TV design, features, and picture quality.
