The good: Superior sound quality compared with other TVs; solid black-level performance; relatively accurate color; adjustable dejudder processing; Vudu on-demand video and Pandora streaming work well; numerous picture adjustments; includes three HDMI and three component-video inputs; extremely thin bezel results in nearly "all screen" look, except for the speaker.
The bad: Expensive; uneven screen uniformity; dark areas dinged bluer; clunky remote control and menu design; very little surround effect; subwoofer required for the best sound.

LED performance and a stylish, color-infused design set a new standard in home entertainment. Unlike other LED HDTVs that use "edge" lighting, LG’s LH90 uses a full array of LED backlights which employ a local dimming technology for precise picture control, resulting in deeper blacks, a wide color gamut and smooth motion for a more natural picture.
It’s no secret that Samsung has the market cornered when it comes to LED backlit LCD TVs. They have no fewer than 3 complete lines that feature LED. The Samsung UN55B7000, like its older brother the 8000 series, features a simple design. The high gloss bezel that surrounds the TV gives a sense of class to the set. The Samsung logo is displayed in its usual location, centered below the screen. The screen is supported by a matching pedestal base for those who choose to not wall mount the screen.

With the introduction of the LC52LE700UN, Sharp combines its legendary AQUOS LCD panel technology with a newly developed, proprietary Full Array LED backlight system to create picture quality that is second to none. The LC52LE700UN illustrates Sharp's LCD technology leadership while also demonstrating its LED engineering advantages. Sharp's Ultra Brilliant LED system illuminates the TV to extremely high brightness and contrast levels and enables significant environmental benefits such as longer life expectancy, no heavy metals and lower power consumption. At the same time, the new XGen LCD Panel utilizes an ingeniously devised pixel design that permits more light to pass through even while minimizing light leakage, with the result being the deepest black levels that AQUOS has ever achieved. Overall, the LC52LE700UN shows that with Sharp, it's not just LED… it's AQUOS LED.

Well priced for a 46-inch plasma HDTV
Lots of customization options
Skimpy on inputs (and no PC support)
