The 5 Best TVs

A home today is unimaginable without a TV. A TV is where people get together to watch the news, see movies and sometimes even play videogames. A TV is always the accent in a bedroom or kitchen. The large screen lets the whole family watch, and it serves not just as a means of seeing the news or movies, but as a place for the family to get together.

Therefore the TV must do justice to its important role. It should be of the highest quality possible, because it is an important part of your home. So selecting a TV is an important choice. However the sheer number of possible brands and models makes it hard to choose. The specs are hard to get through – there is the diagonal, for one thing. Then you have to decide on the resolution, the OS and many other things. For an untrained buyer such a choice can be very hard to make, and it is possible to be uncertain for a long time.

To help potential buyers make this choice, we have assembled the 5 best models in one list. All are great for both games and films and have an adequate price for their specs.
