Best TVs 2015

Best TVs 2015
By , Sean Captain

Want a stunning cinema experience and willing to pay for it? Get LG's 55-inch curved OLED TV, the 55EC9300, which offers the most gorgeous picture we've seen. Looking for a good budget screen for a kid's room or dorm room? You'll love the 32-inch Vizio M322i-B1 — which costs about a tenth as much as the LG.
In between is a wide range of sizes, prices and features. We fixed our gaze on roomfuls of TVs with all kinds of content — HD and 4K — to find the best model for whatever delights you: be it for game day, movie night or fragfest. We have pushed all the TVs' buttons, navigated their menus and run their smart TV apps. (For details on our evaluation methodology, see How We Test TVs.) Read on for our recommendations: which start at the top end and work their way down.​

    Good article and selection, BUT is there any chance it will be updated?

    No mention of the Samsung F8500? It has the best picture quality of any non-OLED TV currently available new.

    The 40 inch Hisense is currently at $280. Wouldn't that be the best TV for the money?

    This list goes from $600 for a 50" to $1600+ for 55" -70"'s. Can you recommend any 55", 60", &/or 65" TV's in the $700 - $1500 range? Particularly in that sub $1000 sweet spot?

    I'm not sure about any of you, but I wouldn't quite label a 50" as midsize. Personally my size thoughts are less than 38 for small, 38-46 midsize, 50-65 big, 65+ stupid big

    I have to plug Sanyo. I have bought almost nothing but Sanyo, usually from WM for several years. I have had 9 of them over the last 20 years and I've never had one quit working or need servicing. Nor have I had one DOA and had to return it. The only reason I ever pitch one is because it's obsolete or I just want a new TV. I'm researching TV's now for something to replace my 13 year old 50 inch Sanyo Plasma, which still works great but it's only 720p, if I wait for it to quit, I'll probably be dead. Just my experience, take it for what it's worth.

    While not yet available I would speculate that this OLED will be the best 4K set on the market.

    According to this article, the estimated retail price will be $5,499 US. While not cheap, it is well within the budgets of some videophiles, and will almost certainly drop to reasonable levels in a short amount of time.

    The best TV's will always provide you the best entertainment at the comfort of your home. So, if you are looking for the best, it is highly recommended to always read reviews first.
