Sony KDS-60A2000 Video
Pioneer's PDP-4360HD offers improved black-level performance and excellent overall picture quality, but it costs a bit more than the competition.
Although it costs a tad more than bargain-basement models, the Sony KDL-L5000 series makes up for it with above-basement design and picture quality.
Sony's entry-level LCD, the KDL-46S3000 offers fine picture quality for most viewers, but bargain shoppers and home theater sticklers alike may want something different.
Although Sony's KLV-S32A10 LCD produces relatively deep blacks, its overall image quality isn't worth the higher price.
The Vizio VM60PHDTV's excellent value will outweigh its picture quality issues for most viewers.
Although it's priced higher and performs worse than the best plasmas, the Sony XBR-HX950 is still one of the top-performing LED TVs ever.
The Vizio VP50HDTV's bargain pricing will be worth the trade-off in picture quality for many less critical viewers.
The Sony KDL-32S2000's impressive image quality and slick styling make it a viable HD LCD option.
Although it does deliver excellent 2D picture quality, the 3D-compatible Panasonic TC-PGT25 series can't match the overall performance of the competition's best plasmas.
A lot of people will like the Sony Alpha NEX-C3 for its excellent photo quality and a now more usable design, but it can get unexpectedly heavy with the zoom E-mount lenses and it's still a bit more expensive than many point-and-shoot upgraders will like.
