While Pioneer’s Kuro is still the best HDTV out there, if you can find it, the new Samsung UN46B8500 is easily the best 46 inch LCD out there
, despite its poor off-angle viewing. Samsung’s ultra-thin LED-based LCDs have been released throughout the year and have garnered a lot of attention. The company’s 6000, 7000, and 8000 models, are all solid sets, but the most recently release, the UN46B8500, has snagged the top spot for best LCD TV on the market for the moment. This model differs from the other LED sets in that its LED backlighting is not arranged along the edge of the screens. It is instead equipped with local dimming LEDs
arranged throughout the screen, which doesn’t affect its slim build. And with plenty of interactive features
plugged into the UN46B8500 as well, this LCD has plenty to love.
