Best LCD HDTV 2016

Updated on November 29, 2015

If you are looking for the best LCD HDTV 2016, look no further. We have reviewed a number of the best selling LCD televisions for you, ranging in size and price. No matter what you are shopping for, you will find the LCD HDTV that you want here.

What to look for in an LCD TV:

  • Cost: Decide how much you are willing to spend and then stick to that. The main determining factor of cost is the size of the LCD TV. So as a rule of thumb buy the largest one you can afford.
  • Match TV size to a room: If you try to put a TV that is too large into a small room it doesn't look 'right'. Buy something that will look tasteful in your TV room.
  • Definition: 1080 pixels or higher is considered full HD TV.
  • Input: Make sure the TV you get has at least 2 and preferably 4 HDMI inputs. To receive over-the-air HDTV broadcasts it should ideally also have an ATSC tuner built-in.
  • Response rate and time: This should be 120 HZ (or higher) and 8 ms (or lower).
  • Contrast ratio: Ignore this. Manufacturers make up contrast ratio numbers to help them sell their products.

Samsung 55 inch 120 Hz HDTV

The 55 inch Samsun is our number one pick as best HD LCD TV of 2016. There are quite a few other 55 inch TVs that boast the same statistics as the Samsung LN55C650. It is only when you put them next to the Samsung that you can see what makes this TV the best. There is just so much more of the video that you see, things you don't even notice when watching the same video on another LCD TV.

With Full HD 1080 pixel resolution and Motionflow 120Hz technology. The Samsung HDTVs are made for watching sports, fast-action movies and game play. Enjoy sharp, crystal clear images with the Samsungs fully digital video processor on the 55-inch screen.

Samsung LN46C630 46-Inch

Considering the features this HDTV is a great deal. Samsung is a reputable brand, and the quality of this TV reflects that. The matte screen finish is perfect for your living room. If you have a patio door that brings in a lot of sun, the reduced glare creates a much better picture.

The weight of the TV is another plus. Typically, bigger-sized items weigh a ton, but this is only about 50 pounds. You could lift this TV all by yourself.

Everything about the Samsung is perfect. If you have a Wii and DVD player both hooked up to it you have a great TV for gaming.

LG 42LH30 42-Inch

The price for this TV is unbelievable. The LG brand is a reputable one. Not only is it a smart purchase, but you will be thrilled with the bargain you get.

The presets are wonderful. You can flop quickly from Food Network to a movie without any hassle. Also, this is an Energy Star product, which means it has a very small carbon footprint. We all look for ways to make our house a little greener, and this TV helps do that without compromising any quality. In fact, the picture performance is terrific.

VIZIO VA370M 37-Inch Full HD

The Vizio is a low cost alternative to the bigger brand name HDTVs. It's not a great HDTV, but it still good value for money.

The remote control and interface on this TV is particularly easy to use.

Samsung LN32B460 32-Inch

This Samsung is nothing short of impressive. You will have no trouble setting it up, and the size is absolutely perfect for any bedroom. The picture is very realistic, too. The smaller televisions sometimes have a more blurry image, but not this one. The design of this TV is really great, too. Some of them are a little on the ugly side, but not this one.

We would also like to comment on Pilot Freight and their delivery. This place does a truly excellent job. They are quick and professional. You will be thoroughly pleased with your television and the purchase through Amazon.

Toshiba 26-Inch HDTV

This TV features a number of inputs for things like a DVD player and iPod, HDMI output, and PC video output. Equally great is the lack of digital noise with this TV. That was a big factor for many, because they hate it when they can't hear the softer sounds in a movie.

For watching movies, the Panasonic cannot be beat. You could not have asked for more.

LCD HDTVs come as varied as the programs we watch on them. Some are small, some are large, some are heavy, and some are light. The important thing, however, is finding one that you like. Consider this guide when doing you’re shopping and you are sure to find the television that will suit your needs.

      I have a Samsung 23" 1080p TV and was hoping you may be able to clarify something for me and if this is an issue all the way across the board with HD TV's. I'm running my PS2 as my DVD player and the sound quality is horrible, regardless of the settings I play with on the TV. If I run the DVD's through my laptop and HDMI cable the sound is fine. Would this be more of an issue in terms of say up convert capabilities associated with older DVD players (such as the PS2) or is this something else entirely? I know games still sound good, its just the DVDs.

      Even though I agree with your pic, your opening list /definitions suggests that you may not be the most qualified to be offering this advice.

      Just my opinion, of course.

      To clarify, "1080 pixels or higher is considered full HD TV" is just wrong. Not really sure what you're trying to say. HD is 720p, 1080i, or 1080p. These are resolutions, not the total number of pixels, or any one dimension.

      "Contrast ratio: Ignore this. Manufacturers make up contrast ratio numbers to help them sell their products." - This is actually one of the stats you SHOULD look at. Contrast and Refresh Rates may not have an impact on the casual buyer, but certainly make a difference to the aficionado. Just my two cents.
