Best TVs 2014

Best TVs 2014
By , John Quain

With hundreds of different TVs available, in screen sizes ranging from 32 inches to more than 100 inches, choosing the right set for your budget and space is no easy task. Gifting a TV can also be challenging, because you want to make sure you get the best combination of picture quality, design and special features.

If you are gearing up for your Super Bowl party, the bigger and brighter may be the better. If you are a Criterion Collection movie watcher, the concerns are much different. Deciding which set is best is not a simple matter of comparing specs. Each HDTV has its own benefits and trade-offs. We've picked the best models, from budget 32-inch screens to cutting-edge OLED models.

On thing that's true for all TVs this holiday season: Prices are dropping rapidly as vendors try to clear out old stock. But in most cases, last year's TV is just fine. It's mainly at the high- and very-high end that we expect to see changes for 2015. For a regular HDTV, that end-of-the-year sale can be a great bargain. And if you have had your eye on an Ultra HD TV, you can snap them up for as little as half of what they cost at the beginning of 2014.

    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?
