The Bottom Line The Samsung UNF6400 offers attractive styling and a full complement of features for the price but is outstripped by rivals for performance. Charging the right price for a very good picture, Panasonic's E60 LED LCD is one of the best values available among midrange TVs. With flagship-level picture quality for a midlevel price, the Panasonic ST50 series sets the value standard among videophile-grade TVs. Samsung's best-performing TV ever, the PNF8500 series pushes the plasma picture quality envelope, especially in bright rooms. The excellent yet expensive Samsung UNF8000 is a tour de force of LED LCD TV design, features, and picture quality.
