LED televisions have excellent picture quality, but are also thinner, lighter and more environmentally friendly than LCD and plasma panels. We've put together a list of our favourite LED televisions from Sharp, Samsung, LG and Sony.
5 / 7
Samsung's Series 7 (UA55C7000) is the best edge-lit LED television we've seen. It doesn't have the deep inky black levels of a high-end plasma television, but its colour reproduction is good and 2D video looks great. The UA55C7000's motion control handles sports and wildlife footage well, but some movies can seem slightly jittery when using default settings. 3D video playback is a novel inclusion that adds extra depth and immersion, but we'd wait a while before purchasing a television purely for 3D video. In short, don't purchase this TV for 3D -- purchase it because it's good at almost everything else.
