Where To Find Cheap HDTVs
If you're like me, you do not want to spend a lot for an expensive HDTV. In fact, I prefer to shop for a cheap HDTV without compromising on quality and features. And since I have a small car, I either want to buy from a store with free delivery for HDTVs or an online HDTV free shipping retailer. Before I bought my new TV, I compared prices a lot stores that offered delivery for free and online stores that offered free shipping to my door. In almost every instance, the cheapest HDTV price was online on Amazon. So, I will only be highlighting links to the TVs that are the best from Amazon. You can opt to buy the same TV in your local store, but you will likely pay a LOT more since Amazon doesn't even charge sales tax in most states. Get started by reading my top 5 best HDTVs for 2012 below or go right to the Amazon list of Best Sellers in HDTV Televisions.
Top 5 Best HDTVs for 2012
LG 42CS560 42-Inch 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV Review
I like the 42-inch size the best, but you can also order this same TV in smaller (and cheaper) 37-inch and 32-inch sizes. Just click the link below to get the different size options.
I am a big fan of the picture quality of LG HDTVs. My very first HDTV was this brand and this model has the same awesome picture quality. It has Full HD 1080p and can be mounted on the wall or on the swivel stand if you prefer to put it on an entertainment center. I also love that the price is incredibly affordable too!
A cool feature that this TV has is the LG's Intelligent Sensor, which auto adjust the picture to the brightness in the room. If you living room gets evening sun, like mine, then you will love this feature.
Toshiba 32C120U 32-Inch 720p 60Hz LCD HDTV Review
Note: This model only comes in this one screen size.
Samsung UN32EH5300 32-Inch 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV Review
Note: Other available sizes are 40-in, 46-in and 50-in. Just click on the link below to select the other sizes and check their prices.
LG Cinema Screen 55LM7600 55-Inch Cinema 3D 1080p 240Hz LED-LCD HDTV with Smart TV and Six Pairs of 3D Glasses Review
Note: Other screen size available is 47-in. Click on link below to price the smaller size.
Okay, if I had the space then this HDTV would *so* be mine. Who needs to go to the movie theater when you have this beast in your living room? It mounts on the wall or can sit on your entertainment center stand.
It is a Smart TV, so you have access to all those apps and built-in wi-fi at no extra cost. Don't need a Roku box or Apple TV with this HDTV.
And, it has LG Cinema 3D technology so that you can watch real 3D movies at home! Awesome!
VIZIO E240AR 24-Inch 60Hz LED LCD Class Edge Lit Razor HDTV Review
Note: Other size available is 32-in. Click link below to price the larger size.
This Vizio HDTV is a great budget option for people who do not want to spend a lot on a TV but still get a good picture quality from it. The TV is only 720p, but still really great quality. You can mount it on the wall or put it on your TV stand or entertainment center. It is very thin and its small size is perfect for smaller rooms or studio apartments.

Shop for HDTVs on eBay
If you are looking for a deal, you might be able to find a decent new HDTV on eBay.
Don't Forget Your HDMI Cable!
To ensure that you get the best image quality on your new HDTV, be sure to get a HDMI cable to connect it to your cable box.
Add a BluRay Player To Your Setup
If you still have a standard DVD player, then you will not be taking advantage of that awesome picture quality on your new HDTV. So, why not add a new BluRay DVD player to your home entertainment setup?
Get Movie Theater Sound
If you really want to use all the potential of your new HDTV, then you need to get a new home theater system to add to the setup. This will give you awesome surround sound, just like at the movie theater.
