Best Picture Quality HDTV to Buy

Updated on March 4, 2011

Bigger is Best - The Top 50 Inch HDTV's for Picture Quality

So I've done a lot of research and come up with the best 50 inch HDTV's on the market at the moment for picture quality. If you're looking to buy a HDTV then you should definitely consider one of the below TV's. All of these HDTV's listed below are 1080p capable (this IS a hub about the best PICTURE QUALITY after all!) and they are all 3-D capable. It does not mean they are exclusively 3D, merely that the option is there if you have access to 3D content.


Panasonic VIERA TC-P50VT25

The Panasonic P50VT25 is a real flagship series for Panasonic. It boasts superior black-level performance and excellent shadow detail. With 1080p and the option for 3-D, this HDTV has a lot to offer. There is a con, and that is the model is a little pricey. However if price is not a problem for you, with both 2-D and 3-D options this TV really does deliver an overall outstanding picture. You might want to consider charging friends that come over for movie tickets with this one. Another small bonus is that it does come with 3-D glasses.

Samsung PN50C8000

Now we're onto Samsung's flagship 2-D/3-D capable HDTV. This TV has beautiful black level performance and a brilliant and well integrated apps platform for streaming and widgets. Many HDTV fanatics have declared this to have the best picture hands down - but others disagree and state that the Panasonic VT25 wins by a nose. To be honest, both have amazing picture quality, so if price is an issue and you don't have any brand loyalty to Panasonic, go with the Samsung.

LG 50PX950

This is the best bang for your buck 3D HDTV. The TV's above do have a slightly better overall picture quality (it's likely that you would not really notice the difference unless you really knew what you were looking for) but the overall picture on LG's flagship is still really great. And the price tag is great too. It definitely stands up with the others as one of the best plasma TV's of the year for picture quality.

A quick note...

You may notice above that the Amazon price is not listed on some of the TV's. This is because Amazon often sell way below the recommended retail price provided by the manufacturer of the HDTV, and they are not allowed to show the price outright until a consumer decides they want more information. So if you are curious on the price or want exact specifications or real consumer reviews for any of the HDTV's above, you can get that information through the links above or below.

      Those are all gorgeous looking sets! The LG’s a bit closer to my budget though, so I’m definitely going to have to look into it a bit more. One of my coworkers at DISH (who knows a lot more about TVs than I do) recommended I look into LGs and/or Samsungs. I don’t want to spend too much time doing research now that I’m getting one of DISH’s Hopper whole-home DVRs. It’ll send all my high definition channels to every room, which is why I’m looking to upgrade the last 2 SD sets we have. I have to admit I’m really quite excited to have HD in every room. As soon as we upgraded two of our rooms to HD, the family started fighting over them. Thankfully once I get the new TVs and my Hopper installed, I shouldn’t have to listen to all those arguments anymore!
