The Bottom Line The Vizio E601i-A3 is the best value yet among big-screen LED TVs. 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. The midlevel price and outstanding quality of the Panasonic TC-PST60 series make it our strongest TV recommendation ever. 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.
