Top 10 Best Television BrandsThis is the list to see which television brands are the best.
The 40" Bravia that I purchased from Amazon 7 years ago looks as good as any of the screens I've seen in the stores. I wish I had more of an excuse (3D, 4K, 240HZ, curved screen, invisible bevel, included Netflix, etc. --all fairly meaningless) to replace the set. I'm afraid of getting a picture that wouldn't be "quite" right.
At the time I purchased Sony, all of the self-appointed internet experts were slamming Sony and talking-non-stop gibberish about Samsung's "vastly superior black levels", etc.). Samsung may have run over Sony in market popularity and sales, but Sony quality has answered the threats of all comers.
I have this old sony that our grandpa gave as a gift to my son who was still a 5 month old toddler then.. And that was seven years ago. Interesting to note that set was already 15 years old then since it was said to have been purchased way back in the early 1990- a trinitron class without an audio/video input so that watching a film using a dvd player requires an AV Modulator. It was a KV-19APR1 model, a type which one might not remember anymore and yet it is still working well today and outlived my other sony that I bought in 2001..
I purchased a Sony Bravia 40" in 2009 during a Black Friday sale. The size was a big upgrade for me as I had previously used a 21" Vizio to watch television. Well, here it is November 2017 and the Sony is still going strong! We have 3 different video gaming consoles hooked up to it and it's a breeze to switch over to any one of them. I'm very happy with Sony quality and longevity, but I do have to acknowledge the Vizio as a great brand too. The little 21" Vizio went from being my main television to my computer monitor and it's still working great too.
Bought a sony lcd T.V. in 2008 and now would never consider another brand. The picture quality (black level, natural colors, etc.) of their lcd/leds cannot be beat. Sony also pays attention to good sound which I appreciate not having to by an overpriced soundbar. You pay little more for a set but if you own the T.V. for 10 years it's not a big deal. I'd also add that their customer service is amazing for a consumer products maker. The aforementioned T.V. had what I thought was a picture issue when I first bought it (I later found out it was probably just a hidden setting). However, Sony sent a repair man to my apartment and he replaced the circuit board on the spot. Extremely impressed.
Have had my Samsung 60" T.V. for 2 1/2 yrs when it started power cycling. After researching I have found that Samsung had a class action lawsuit against them for this in previous years. Apparently they are still making POS T.V.'s. Called several times to only be given the run around. Customer service is truly terrible and so is your product. My family will NEVER buy a Samsung product again. Will not stand behind their product or help you find someone qualified to repair your television if you are out of warranty. Do yourself a favor and steer clear of this company.
LG is the Apple for T.V. 's. I bought a Samsung 1080p PNZ550 50" Plasma 2 years ago and it messed up on me on the SECOND DAY. I bought an LG 60PZ550 almost 2 years ago and I've NEVER had a problem with it. My brother bought a Samsung 50" Plasma a few months ago, and guess what? HIS Samsung 50" Plasma messed up on him recently. He didn't keep the receipt like I did and now he has no choice but to keep a garbage T.V. with a problem. Samsung makes GARBAGE T.V. 's. NEVER BUY A SAMSUNG. If you have 4 Samsung T.V. 's then you're lucky none of them have messed up on you... Yet.
I have a 5 year old Samsung 47" 1080 LCD and I have only had one minor problem where the capacitor went bad on it. If you know anything about anything, then it's only a $25 fix to solder a new one back on to the circuit board. If you're worthless, then it will cost you about $200 to pay Geek Squad to fix it. The thing now works like the day I bought it. I also just bought a new Samsung 40" 1080 LED for my bedroom. For the picture quality, you can't beat a Samsung.
I purchased a Samsung 40 inch six years ago and my picture looks as good now as was when I bought it. I have never had any problems with this T.V., I love it! I just recently purchased the Samsung 82 inch to replace my 60 inch LG plasma that finally died after ten years. I loved the picture on that plasma T.V., but this new Samsung 82 inch T.V. is awesome!
I hate this brand. I bought one of their 47" TVs and about 8 months later it randomly goes black, then turns on again but it's not done yet it freezes, glitches orange and goes black again. Now when I turn it on it stays black and won't display anything on the screen anymore. The sound still worked but nothing else. I thought it was an over heating problem so I moved it out farther from the wall, nope still won't work. The only thing I had connected to it was my sons PS3. I recommend that you don't buy LG TVs so you don't waste your money. On the same note my Sony T.V. for downstairs is great I have had that for about 2 years and I have never had a problem ever with it. I am never buying a LG T.V. again.
LG is best for Television great picture quality colours and features... Overall LG is mind blowing.. it's the best brand for Televisions... Always go for LG Televisions... It's the only brand for Television which we can trust blindly...and LG is the King if compaired to others like Samsung and Sony etc..no one can beat LG in Television. Market... I have 4 more Televisions Sony Panasonic Onida and Samsung and my nabour have a Philips Television...but LG beats them all in every field... So if going to buy a Television then LG makes the more sense.. LG is Apple of Televisions... LG is the Best Television brand... 7 Stars...
My year old LG has a great picture and came at a reasonable price, but I wasted my my money on the 3D. If I buy another flat screen (LCD, LED), it will be another LG. Also own 2 Samsungs and a Sharp without any problems and with darn good pictures, but the LG beats them all.
Garbage tvs! Mine just crapped out after all of 1 1/2 years, a screen failure which costs more to fix than to buy a new T.V.. When I was researching the problem I came across hundreds of complaints of LG failures from their top of the line $$$$ tvs down to the smallest, almost all were within the first 2 years which is ridiculous and LG service was essentially useless leaving these people high and dry like me (damn why did I get rid of my 32 Toshiba tube T.V. when I got this one! ). Board failures, tconn and led failures, there is no excuse for this kind of shoddy quality for this kind of money and the fact led tvs have been around for years and the bugs should have all been worked out by now. TRUST ME, YOU BUY A LG T.V. AND YOU WILL REGRET IT! If for some reason you just have to buy one at least buy the extended warranty, it will pay off and I would get it for as long a term as possible. Then save your money as you will be buying a new T.V. when the long term warranty runs out as ...more
A very dependable brand that is hard to beat in terms of 'Value for money'. 'Panasonic' plasma screens are the best I have ever seen for picture quality that makes for a very PLEASANT viewing experience, though I don't own one. I have a 'Panasonic' LED TV with which I am satisfied.
Have had my picture in picture 32 inch Panasonic for about 20 years. Still working great and color and picture is fantastic. Starting to get white lines across top when turned on. May be dusty inside but still a great T.V.. Will try vacuuming the top-hard to get to, but may help! Love Panasonic's!
I've owned 2 Panasonic plasma's. Both were great and very reliable. The current one has picture quality so good that I would not consider replacing it with any current widely available technology. It's really hard to beat plasma for dark blacks, overall color and motion.
I have a 54 inch plasma VT 25 and bought it in 2010 No problems at all and still going strong best picture with true blacks and live shows are like you are their in the stadium. I am sad that Panasonic has discontinued this product. I would buy it again if available. Bring it back.
I've had my 51" for about 4 years I've never had a problem, pictures are great, quality is too. The only thing is that I sometimes loose the control so I manually put the volume up at times and out of the blue it changes channels, so either it's haunted or a tight bit odd. I love it though, my first flat screen and I would totally purchase another phillips.
My bedroom has a small Phillips with a VHS player in it. VHS has decided not to work anymore but T.V. still going strong. Just a small 15 inch but all is well with it. Have had it for about 18 years or so. Can't complain, Phillips has worked for me as well as Panasonic.
Don't know about the lower-end models but for the high-end, specifically the 46PFL9707, Philips holds the cup for me in terms of 2D picture quality for a LCD/LED T.V.. My alternative would be the Sony KDL-46HX850. As a kid, we've only owned Philips and Sony T.V.'s and think that it may be because of this that has influenced my preference of TVs.
We've had our old Philips since just before the flat screens came on the market. It's still working perfectly. but now we're both getting on a bit and want to see the Ball in the next world cup, we've decided on a Philips 47" Flat screen.
TOSHIBA - along w/ Sony - have long been the pioneers of T.V.'s that not only have THE BEST quality pictures but also have decades of proven longevity. All these "newcomers" have spent millions on advertising (and by and large, brainwashing the general public by, basically, brainwashing them with lower quality, inferior, and cheaper television sets). The old adage applies here - as with most electronic devices - you get what you pay for (chump! )!
On the aforementioned note:Ironic that the problem-plagued Vizio (just Google "Vizio" & your auto-choices will reflect such).
In the last 5 years I have purchased a 44" LCD TOSHIBA T.V., a portable TOSHIBA dvd player, two TOSHIBA laptops, and a TOSHIBA dvd player (stationary). The only thing that still works is the T.V. and it required three trips to the repair shop at $200 plus per trip. The T.V. still has a vertical purple stripe in the picture when turned on. I listened to the people who claimed Toshiba made a good product. I now know what a bunch of junk they produce and I have an empty checking account to prove it.
TOSHIBA sucks. You have been warned. Save your money.
I have a Toshiba T.V. that was made with only with stereo speakers in the front at the bottom, and AV connection in the back. Also it is one of those with the protruding back covers, I would suppose it was made in the late 90's or early 2000. The funny thing is the T.V. was being used at the time in a day room, they up dated all T.V. 's and sold the old ones, I purchased one in 2003 used and till now I have not purchased one of those new fangled screens, because the TOSHIBA is still going strong, and when it dies guess what my next choice will be TOSHIBA.
I've got a 2008 toshiba 42 inch running 1080p still running in great condition.. I wanted to upgrade to 4k T.V. with the same brand but the price for a toshiba 4k T.V. is too much expensive.. I would rahter wait for the price to come down than buying different cheap brand T.V.. Japanese T.V. at its best!
We bought bulb after bulb for this joke of a T.V.. Had a repairman come (recommended by Mitsubishi). He removed the back, dusted with my vacuum, put the back on and left with the T.V. still off and sitting on my coffee table where we had placed it to make it easier for him. My sister placed hers on the curb a year ago, and she told me that's what we needed to do. Now we are $200 wasted on a dusting. Today we are going to get a new T.V...one that is worth the money...which would be anything else.
Just bought a 57 inch projection. Its 7 yrs old and the best pic I have ever seen
Colour depth of this brand is amazing...
Great design and graphics.
Leading edge developer of high end technology Sharp are almost always trail blazing when new gadgets are being developed. Never at the absolute top of the heap in regard to reviews, this brand WILL always give you the longest run in reliability & aesthetics. I've owned 4 Sharp HDTVS (currently a 70" LED) and have never had to call a tech in for repairs. AND, I'll take the Pepsi Challenge against any other brand in regards to picture & features.
Sharp is the only T.V. with internal Bass system.
Its has some unique technologie such as when you change channels sharp T.V. responds very quickly then Sony Samsung LG and all other T.V..
All the T.V. brands have Sharp Processor and all other tools materials inside to make a T.V. work. So don't underestimate Sharp Without sharp no other T.V. brands exist.
On march 1st 2014 I purchased a sharp 42 inch led hd T.V. at best buy in greensboro North Carolina for $405.64 I've owned it for 5 months I replaced my previous T.V. a 32 inch vizio lcd hd T.V. I used over 4 years no problems good picture quality my has a 2,000,000 to 1 dynamic contrast ratio I also have a sony home av home theater I bought 7 years ago strk7000 am/fm/fm stereo receiver with front center suround speakers and sub woofer 5 disc dvd/cd changer 5 disc changer jvc tdw354 dual auto reverse cassette deck with dolby b/c noise reduction hx pro noise reduction sony wireless haed phones avoid phillips magnavox rca polaroid daewoo
Eight years ago we bought a Sharp 55 inch LCD and it is still delivering the goods every evening for us. From my perspective Sharp stays ahead of the pack with its unique technologies and high quality, long lasting televisions.
Bought a Vizio after my last T.V. (a budget brand) crapped out. So far we have been nothing but astounded by the quality of the picture and features. People talking about Vizios being "made to sell in bargain stores like Sam's Club and Walmart and fail one week after mftr warranty expires" should note that a 5 year warranty from Sam's Club only cost me $50. Doesn't take a genius to figure out that if they do truly fail after 1 year, that's not a financially viable set up for any retailer.
If I'm wrong, I'll go through 5 of them before I pay another penny. But something tells me the know-it-all reviewers are simply the vocal minority pissed off because their T.V. happened to break at an inopportune time, and they neglected to purchase a warranty. Tsk tsk...
I recently purchased a Visio 600i-B3 smart T.V. to replace a 3 year old Samsung 58" 7000 series plasma smart T.V..
Other than a bit less brightness and a little bit of motion blur, the Visio 600i-B3 is superior to the Samsung plasma in every other way. And, surprisingly, it's not even the upper level M-series Visio line. I had a lot of problems with the apps and with a pink shimmer over white areas of the screen of the Samsung (that they would not fix under warranty), so I'm so glad to be rid of Samsung.
I bought a D43C1 less than 2 years ago and the HDMI ports crapped out! Tried to reset it back to factory specs. and it worked for a few months then same thing again! I can watch what comes over the coax input but the best is HDMI and this thing will NOT work! Contacted Vizio and got no real help except a SORRY! I've had many T.V.'s and NEVER had 1 crap out in such a short time! I thought it was a quality unit but I was WRONG! NEVER AGAIN!
We have had a Vizio about two years after they were introduced to the public and it is really a wonderful T.V. no problems. We have bought my Son a Vizio and 2 Vizios for a Bedroom and the Garage and the 60" Vizio smart T.V. for the living room. Needless to say we are sold on the Vizio. Love them and great prices and great picture, great quality you couldn't ask for more.
Although my Samsung and LG have clearer and brighter screens, I must say this brand is very good too. If you looking for a T.V. for a bedroom, basement, or kids room this is a good value brand. Not quite as premium as some brands, but def not a bad buy either. We are satisfied at this price point.
I love my Hitachi great picture 55inch better then my Samsung buy a long shot and best part it was 200.00 cheaper
I have a 12 year old 42" plasma still going with beautiful picture!
Great make love them better than Panasonic or Samsung
My JVC has clear picture and very great sound I think this TV brand must be on the top 4 or 5 and I always recomend my friends to buy a JVC TV.
Jvc has been arund from the dawn of time was one of the best T.V. makers and still is was better when it was made in japan rather than china which most countries have sold out to
I have jvc T.V. bought 2003 and until now 2017 the picture are still good and tje surround sound is in good shape...
Owned from 2002-2013. Still perfect when it was sold last year on craigslist.
I've had my 50 inch for 8 or more years. Everyone that sees the picture wants to trade me their T.V.. This T.V. is awesome and I wouldn't trade it for any other brand.
I had a 32 inch LCD RCA T.V. since 2009 I still have it. It has been a great T.V. for years in fact I bought a sound bar RCA to go along with great picture. And just last year I bought a 50 inch RCA LED I have not had any problems out of it. I like RCA I think it’s a great brand keep up the good work RCA. But the way the picture for the 50 inch is flawless shows great.
RCA has been the best brand by far, I have bought four 32" Proscans (1 for the office, one for my bedroom, one for mom who is in a assisted living center, and one for my girlfriend) also bought a RCA 65" Proscan for my living room... absolutely no problems and the pictue is top notch... love'em
Rca sucks. 6 month old 39" LCD No warranty center and no parts
Just purchased a Hisense 55" 4K UHD T.V. and couldn't be more pleased. Got it on clearance for <$300. The image quality is outstanding. The edge lighting has some minor light bleed in the lower corners, but is not significant enough to downgrade the set itself. Very light weight and pretty sturdy. Sound was somewhat low, but paired this with an Sharp sound-bar and Sony 4k Blu-ray player and everything is great. Our 8 year 70" Sharp just gave up the ghost and we're going to replace it with the 65" Hisense. Just because it's not $1,000+ doesn't mean poor quality or reliability. Can't see paying hundreds more for a major name-brand when Hisense makes just as good a product. Yes, I would recommend Hisense.
Loving my new T.V.. This is the first T.V. I've purchased in forever because I didn't like the changes and the "too real" look I saw in a lot of T.V.'s. So I spent more than 2 hours with the Electronics Express salesmen and getting a strong education and evaluating the different categories for comparison. I was thorough, and they were patient. Ultimately, I was unconvinced that I was buying the very best T.V...but felt comfortable with the price.
That was 2 months ago, my new 4k, 44" is amazing. I'm loving it really! And even my friends who've had HD for a while are beyond impressed with the clarity and quality and the apps. And gaming is awesome
In this year hisense is the top three brand in world
Hisense makes a new family brand in this world, make new a better place to be a number 1 brand in the world. lets turn to hisense T.V.
Worst T.V. brand in india, I bought 40 inch led T.V. in 2018 within 4months it's panel went faulty and I claimed for warranty service. They only visited once and I am waiting for my T.V. to be repaired under warranty for last 6months. I have made more than 30 times follow up they are saying, the faulty part is being sent from china then will be repaired. I asked for them to send me a service denial letter so I can take legal action but they insist they have taken my claim under high priority from the beginning. You can understand how worst the brand is. By the china is china that offer no guarantee.
I had a Samsung curve didn't like the color of it I bought the TCL roku T.V. 55 inch flat 4K and I have to say is the best television I ever owned the colors it's fantastic blows away my Samsung curve as in quality and looks of the picture I feel like a climb inside and be with the cast crew such a beautiful picture I highly recommend You to buy a 4K Roku television you will not regret it best picture is on brighter and then second Vivid and it brings the T.V. to life this is my second 4K T.V. I ever owned and my best one I always stick with TCL and has the good thing with the Roku belt in it every time they come up with an upgrade it automatically download software to my T.V. so my T.V.'s always up-to-date as an app's color performance that's all I have to say buy one today I did LOL
Got a 55 inch and the first time I tried screwing in the antenna coaxial cable the thing broke. Not covered under any warranty and not able to return it. Great Roku but sucky T.V. and company
Best television brand I’ve ever come across... I think TCL is gonna go far with the hard work they putting into the televisions they’re beginning to produce.
High quality pictures with the TCL 43 inches UHD T.V. with HDR as well.
Sanyo is best the best of the inexpensive or store brand T.V.'s, I got a 65 inch at Walmart for $450 and it has a great picture, much better than I expected, sure it is not as good as a top of the line Samsung, but for 1/4 of the price it is fantastic, and 9/10 people would never be able to tell the difference between this Sanyo and a Sony.
I have had a 19" Sanyo T.V. for over 30 years now and though its not a flat panel it still has a beautiful picture! I am finally upgrading to a flat panel and Yes, I am going to purchase a SANYO! How could I go wrong after all these years of trouble-free T.V. viewing...
I bought my 40" Sanyo 1080p as a computer monitor, an it works great. The corresponding Samsung would not work as a monitor. The Sanyo was a great deal too.
We purchased a Sanyo 58" over three years ago and love it. Outstanding picture! Standing joke in our house is "we need to find a better picture" LOL
Probably giving more features in minimum price, That's Micromax...
I have good experience while hd gaming and movie streaming.
Though inbuilt sound system is reasonable...
More specification, less price
I am proud to say that it was an Indian company
Micromax is Better than Samsung, Picture quality is very good.
Cheap and best, I used it and no any problem. it is good like costly product of other brand
Very bed experiens
This website gives only wrong information. Samsung is leading brand of Television and then Lg
I don't think that this would be a T.V. brand...they should just focus on cars!
Great quality, heavy duty...
Good job Hyundai
Nice T.V. never fails just wish there was a smart one
The best ever
Bro it's the Logik-al answer
I just bought a 32 inch last weekend and I'm satisfied. Before choosing I let the sales attendant to open 3 different brands (all big brands with the same price range) at the same time so that I can compare. I chose skyworth. Good picture worth the price.
I do have this one at home. Product is good. Hope they can produce more affordable with good quality.
I probably enjoy watching movies with my 58e66.. Audio & video quality, so good...
Can't play all video and audio format (usb)
Nice look with the best quality screen and great quality features with smart features.. It is a great T.V. and a best budget T.V. if compare with other brands which is significantly very high with the same aspects as the vu T.V...
This television picture quality is high, and low cost
Best in market price...
Good product value for money..
My insignia is awesome! I'm sad though that Insignia is all the way at the bottom. Resolution is good, build quality is good, and the controls are very simple!
I have two of this brand. Both open box deals from best buy one a 19 inch 720 60hz and one a 32 inch 720 60hz w built in DVD player. Both have fantastic picture and sound especially for the price. Both are led lit LCD tvs and perform well.
I've had it for about a year now and the picture isn't bad. Also, we've haven't had any problems with it. I don't know why it's this low on T.V. brands.
Very good brand, have T.V. for 7 years no problem, thought it would have a much better number
