Most Recommended Best Value LCD Televisions (46-55 inches) You Can Buy

Are you looking for the best value lcd tv? People who appreciate "value" are looking for lcd tv bargains, but don't want to under or over spend. They want to "optimize" their hdtv investment by getting a good deal on a high performance lcd tv or plasma tv. The good news is that many of the high-end, high-quality models have come down in price in recent months. This is also a good time to be purchasing many of the high-performance lcd and plasma televisions that are nearing their one year anniversary introduction date. Many of these sets will be dramatically discounted as they are replaced by newer 2010 hdtv models. The models on this page are the best value lcd tvs (46-47-52-55 inches) we could find. You can also find lists of the best quality lcd tvs and the cheapest lcd tvs on other parts of the site.


Paul Reynolds, at Consumer Reports, has a great publicly-available page on their blog (HDTV Values) that gives some interesting insights into how to get the most for your money when buying a best value hdtv. Their bottomline advice is to consider buying a plasma model if you're looking at a 50"+ model, don't rule out 720p sets (if you're not watching highest definition content) and to steer clear of LCD sets with the highest refresh rates.


Save Time Finding the Best Value LCD TV for You

This site is designed to save you time deciding which best value lcd to buy. It's not meant to be an exhaustive or comprehensive resource. In our experience, choosing from any more than five hdtvs is difficult. That's why we looked at most of them and then condensed our final choices into lists of five, organized by your choice criteria.


Everybody's different. You're not just looking for the best television - you're looking for the best television that fits your specific criteria. At HDTV Matrix, we group those criteria into three main buckets - you want the best quality (best performance and features), you want the best value (best price-performance balance), or you want the cheapest (you want to get the most hdtv for your money).


The good news is that flat-screen tv prices on the best models have dropped dramatically in the last few months and no matter what your choice criteria is, you should be able to find a new lcd tv that will make you happy. We provide the basic info, a photo, and links to expert and user reviews. Don't agree with our choices? No problem, use the links to the expert sites and build your own list. Happy TV hunting! Thanks for coming to our site.
