Sharp LC-32LE700UN is an affordable television that utilizes an LED backlight, which is all the rage in new LCDs. LED backlighting replaces the old fluorescent backlights, and allows for deeper contrasts, brighter colors, and greater energy efficiency. It's the current pinnacle of LCD technology, and is typically only available at a significant price premium. The Sharp LC-32LE700UN is an excellent bargain on a superlative TV.

The Sony KDL-32XBR9 is the entry-level model in Sony's high-end, high-performance XBR series. Its medium-display size keeps the price down, as does the 120Hz refresh rate. The larger sets in the XBR series feature 240Hz refresh rates, allegedly smoother but its efficacy is not always apparent to the naked eye. Nevertheless, the KDL-32XBR9 is a great way to get a powerful, high-definition television without spending a boatload of cash on unnecessary bells and whistles.

The Panasonic TC-P42G10 is a great deal on a big screen TV. Plasma televisions are always excellent bargains, with large screen sizes at low, low prices. The TC-P42G10, however, is an even better choice, as it includes the Panasonic Viera Cast feature, which lets viewers stream video content from Internet sources like YouTube and Amazon On Demand. Get the deep, cinematic experience of plasma TV and the cutting-edge power of a 'connected' Internet-ready TV at a fraction of the cost of a comparably sized LCD television.
