LG 47LH90 LCD TV Review

LG 47LH90 LED LCD TVModerate in size, but more than average in performance, LG 47LH90 is guaranteed to make a good impression, especially because of superior picture quality. Some minor flaws bring the model down a few notches, but if you can live with a little blooming effect, or the fact that the dejudder processing must be engaged in the same time with the anti-blur features, then LG 47LH90 is one of the best LCD TVs that you can buy.

Samsung LN55B650 LCD TV Review

Samsung LN55B650 LCD TVSamsung surely knew what they were doing when launching on the market the medium range B650 series of LCD TVs. Samsung LN55B650 is one of the greatest representatives of this series (and the one with the biggest screen size), and it sports all its good and bad points. On the good side, Samsung LN55B650 is capable of rendering excellent image quality, it offers access to good web streaming content, and its connectivity options are nothing but solid for a product in this range. Its only minuses consist of the price tag that comes attached to it, the blue tinge marring the darker scene, and the fact that the 120Hz refresh rate doesn’t seem to do much, except maybe adding a little more to the spec list, and the cost, as well.

Samsung LN52B750 LCD TV Review

Samsung LN52B750 LCD TVAmong the 240Hz generation of LCD TVs, Samsung LN52B750 shines like a diamond in the rough, as its amount of new features, and solid connectivity options are recommendations in themselves. The B750 series from Samsung was clearly designed to take the LCD technology one step ahead, as well as one step closer to the plasma counterparts sold on the market. Samsung may not be there just yet, but it is clearly on the right path with this particular model, that offers a lot for consumers, even if the price may need to back down a little, in order to become affordable for the large audience. Some drawbacks still mar an almost perfect experience, especially since image quality is concerned, as it will be explained later in this Samsung LN52B750 review.

Panasonic TC-P42G10 Plasma TV Review

Panasonic TC-P42G10 Plasma TVHaving a feature packed plasma TV in only 42 inches seems like Panasonic had a good idea about how to impress customers that are not all that crazy about large models. For a 42 inch plasma TV, Panasonic TC-P42G10 comes with all the fancy features of the series, with exceptional black level performance, and THX certification. The latter is the main dish that the company has brought forward for this Panasonic plasma TV, especially when compared with the S1 series from the same manufacturer. G10 models are particularly good, and they are outrun only by the V10 series, launched later by the company. It is worth mentioning that it is a nice touch to have Viera Cast features and Amazon on Demand access on a plasma TV like this one.

Panasonic TC-P54S1 Plasma TV Review

Panasonic TC-P54S1 Plasma TVIt was quite daring for Panasonic to grant a 54 inch plasma TV for the S1 series, but it was right to do so, as, through Panasonic TC-P54S1, the company has managed to offer a reliable model, at a reasonable price, at a size that can be installed in larger rooms. People with plenty of money may want to go for a different Panasonic plasma TV, coming in 54 inches, like V10 or G10 models, because Panasonic TC-P54S1 lacks THX certification, fancy Viera Cast services, or 24p cinema mode, but, if you only want a good quality large plasma with a reasonable price, this one is the right purchase for you.

Panasonic TC-P50C1 Plasma TV Review

This Panasonic plasma TV is one step up from previous plasma models from the same manufacturer, while it cannot compete with newer series, like S1.

Panasonic TC-P46S1 Plasma TV Review

Panasonic TC-P46S1 Plasma TVA very good thing about the S1 series from Panasonic is that the company has thought about delivering models in all sizes, fit for almost any pocket. Panasonic TC-P46S1 is one example, a 46 inch plasma TV that comes packed with great quality picture and black levels, without going over the top with extra features, that usually get you spending more money, just for their sake. It is true that this Panasonic plasma TV is not as good as luxury models like V10 and G10 series, but it is more than the X1 series, because it features 1080p resolution.

Samsung PN58B850 Plasma TV Review

Samsung PN58B850 Plasma TVWhile Panasonic has strived for quality and design, Samsung has not acted as unaffected. Through its Samsung PN58B850, the company intended to offer the buyer the one plasma TV considered to be the coolest looking product ever released in 2009. This Samsung plasma TV has more than just looks, and taking a look at its specs and its performance will surely tip the balance towards it. If you intend to buy a 58 inch plasma TV, this particular model has everything needed to determine you at least to evaluate it and compare it with other models. You should know, however, that about the only thing that puts the difference in price between a Samsung B650 model and this B850 model, is the awesome 1.2 inch frame design. Everything else – performance and features – is pretty much the same.

Panasonic TC-P42U1 Plasma TV Review

Panasonic TC-P42U1 Plasma TVPanasonic is the name of the company that decided to take over the market of plasma TVs in 2009. This would have not been possible, unless the manufacturer had thought of complying with each and every request coming from potential buyers, no matter the size of their wallet. This is how competitive low entry products entered the market, and claimed it for Panasonic, and Panasonic TC-P42U1 is just one 42 inch plasma TV released this year, to justify the company’s greed for market share. Rest assured that for a Panasonic plasma TV, the model reviewed here has all the basics and even a bit more, all at a price that would have you take a second look to see what the fuss is all about.

Samsung LN46B650 LCD TV Review

Samsung LN46B650 LCD TVFor a 46 inch LCD TV model, Samsung LN46B650 can be considered one of the best in its size category. It has 120Hz refresh rate, which makes it a little more than older models of LCD TV, and it also comes equipped with some great perks, like web streaming content, that makes it raise its head over other competitors. It is worth mentioning that Samsung LN46B650 has great connectivity options, including 4 HDMI outputs, and 2 USB ports. Besides that, the image quality is rather good, with only a few drawbacks overall.

Panasonic TC-P50X1 Plasma TV Review

Panasonic TC-P50X1 Plasma TVAmong the most popular HDTV sold on the market nowadays, we find 50 inch models, and, if we look for a cheap one, the choices are generally narrowed down to a few performers. Panasonic TC-P50X1 is one of them, and it is a low entry Panasonic plasma TV, aimed at the budget conscious with a need for a good quality product. While, at first glance, there is little to differentiate this 50 inch plasma from its C1 counterpart, the truth is that Panasonic TC-P50X1 is better. For instance, while both series share the same 720p resolution, not the same thing can be said about the contrast ratio (twice as big in the X1 series), and the anti-glare screen, found in Panasonic TC-P50X1, but not in C1 models. The latter gives this particular model an upper hand when compared to U1 series, which, again, does not come with an anti-reflective coating.

Panasonic TC-P54G10 Plasma TV Review

Panasonic TC-P54G10 Plasma TVFor a 54 inch plasma TV, Panasonic TC-P54G10 offers a better deal than the model with the same size from the V10 series. It costs less, even if it is not on par with its counterpart in terms of quality. The thing is that the differences are less important than the similarities, seeing how much you would have to pay for a Panasonic plasma TV that is only better by little, and only in the eyes of the picky customer with a full wallet. Overall, Panasonic TC-P54G10 is a great plasma TV, not as expensive as the V10, but fully packed with the latest features and displaying a great performance that could make its competitors die of envy.

Panasonic TC-P46U1 Plasma TV Review

Panasonic TC-P46U1 Plasma TVIn very few words, Panasonic TC-P46U1 represents the low entry model from Panasonic that comes with a 1080p resolution. This is about the only characteristic that makes this Panasonic plasma TV to have the upper hand, when compared to another cheap series from the same manufacturer, C1. While C1 has only 720p resolution, which makes it fall short in eyes of many, U1 models shine through with a superior resolution. Do not let yourself be mistaken: this 46 inch plasma TV does not have any of the fancy features that made Panasonic plasma TVs, like those from G10 or V10 series. So expect no THX certification, or Viera Cast interactive features, because you won’t get them.
