Top 10 Best Television Brands

This is the list to see which television brands are the best.

The Top Ten

1 Sony Sony Sony Corporation, commonly referred to as Sony, is a Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation headquartered in Kōnan Minato, Tokyo, Japan.

The picture quality of Sony T.V. 's is just stunning. Clear picture, fresh colors, a very deep black. Once a Sony always a Sony. Especially for HD stuff and gaming Sony T.V. 's are great, I recommend buying them!

AWESOME brand I have 3 Sony tvs in my house. - XxSpitfire34109xX

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..

Once a sony user always a sony user

2 Samsung Samsung Samsung is a South Korean multinational conglomerate company headquartered in Samsung Town, Seoul. Its primary products are apparel, chemicals, consumer electronics, electronic components, medical equipment, semiconductors, ships, telecommunications equipment.

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.

Our 40" Samsung LCD T.V. started flickering and blacking out right after the 3 year warrant was out. We have a smaller Samsung that bought for the guest room at the same time that is still working and now we're having to watch it in our family room. We're going shopping for a new T.V. soon and it won't be Samsung.

Nice T.V.

LG is good brand... Great picture quality...

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.

Get one. They are not that expensive and have very great quality. I got one for less than 1000 and it looks like it's a 2000 dollar T.V.

Awesome sets

4 Panasonic Panasonic

We have a Panasonic viera which we bought last year, we have never had and problems with it, IT'S THE BEST T.V. eVER! We have also connected it to a sky plus hd box, they are epic too!

They make a great T.V., our 50" plasma is several years old and still work flawlessly and has a great picture!

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!

Panasonic is best ever company in all sections

5 Toshiba Toshiba Toshiba Corporation is a Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.

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).

4 year old Toshiba 1080p 120hz flat panel T.V.. Still going strong, never a problem. I'll look for the Toshiba brand again when shopping for a new T.V..

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.

Great T.V.! Never had any problems with my picture clear in 1080

6 Philips Philips Koninklijke Philips N.V. is a Dutch technology company headquartered in Amsterdam with primary divisions focused in the areas of electronics, healthcare and lighting.

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.

I've had a old Philips 32 inch television for fifteen years I upgraded to a Samsung flat screen led what a mistake barely lasted a year I'm buying another Philips tomorrow hope it will last as long as my old one

Keep the good quality

Samsung smart 55 inch T.V. lasted me 3 years paid 2,000 sad I turned T.V. on and a bright white line came across it and never went away what a waist of money just bought me a Philips 65 inch 4 k smart T.V. today so far happy and satisfied let's see if it last me.

7 Sharp Sharp Sharp Corporation is a Japanese multinational corporation that designs and manufactures electronic products, headquartered in Abeno-ku, Osaka.

Sharp always, the best option without extra payment only for a "super name"..

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.

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.

Have a 40inch squishy for15years playing 24/7and still going

8 Vizio Vizio Vizio is an American privately held company making consumer electronics, based in Irvine, California. It was founded in October 2002 as V Inc.

I've been using my 37" Razor LED Vizio for over two years and it's a fantastic television for movies, gaming, and has amazing sound quality. The best T.V. I have used so far and I recommend it to everyone.

I've been using my 42" Vizio for over five years now and works great like the firs day I bought it. I just bought a 60" led, Vizio of course, and awaiting its arrival, best brand!

Best Brand On The Market. Has great sound quality and a Picture as Sharp as LG, Sony Or Samsung who are the big 3 names.

Worst T.V. I've ever bought. It worked fine for the first year and then started dimming through one of the HD ports. And then it just wouldn't come on one day. I've only had it for 1 year and 3 months. I took it to the repairman and he said it both boards were fried. It would be like $125 to get it fixed. I paid 200 for no. Vizio sucks! Never again VIZIO!

The Contenders

11 Sanyo Sanyo Sanyo Electric Co., Ltd. is a Japanese major electronics company and formerly a member of the Fortune Global 500 whose headquarters was located in Moriguchi, Osaka prefecture, Japan.

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.


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

Best T.V.

12 RCA

Great T.V. , just Great. - XxSpitfire34109xX

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 sucks. 6 month old 39" LCD No warranty center and no parts

I had mine since February 2016, a 40" & a 24". so far so good.

Great up and coming brand

15 JVC

JVC must be number one because it's so clear to look and hear its sound. JVC IS THE BEST THAN THE REST

Owned from 2002-2013. Still perfect when it was sold last year on craigslist.

Sony is easily broken and the worst

I have jvc T.V. bought 2003 and until now 2017 the picture are still good and tje surround sound is in good shape...

I don't think that this would be a T.V. brand...they should just focus on cars!

18 Alba

Nice T.V. never fails just wish there was a smart one

The best ever

19 Logik

Bro it's the Logik-al answer

20 Insignia

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

Good color and sharpe picture.

I would buy again!

Excellent picture quality and none of the unnecessary options. A great T.V. for someone wanting "Just a T.V.."

25 Pioneer

Best T.V.s ever made period!

26 Onida

Best picture quality & sound quality

Number 1 pictures quality and sound and onida is number 1 brand in india not a Sony

Best quality

Worst television in India

27 Haier

Just try and you will see...

Amazing features and picture quality. (because I think that if we spend 200$ we should expect 200$ out of it because some times we do unfair but spending less and expecting more than that

I have a 50in haier and the color and picture is very good. I think it should be a higher rating.

I own a 55 inch Haier and love it, it is an excellent T.V..

28 Westinghouse

Love mine. Good picture quality and not as expensive as some "higher quality" brands. I have had mine for 2 years now and don't plan on trading it in any time soon.

I get Westinghouse for 6 year and don't working.

I had a 21 inch samsung and I just bought a 40 inch westinghouse and the 40 inch westinghouse is a lot better than samsung and my parents have had samsung tvs for 16 years now and they say that samsung is the best but I disagree with them

Cheap didn't last a year and the company is giving me the run around we have decided to junk it.

30 Lloyd



It's the worst T.V. you can have

Lloyd led T.V. is excellent. And wide range of led T.V.'s product are available.

31 Emerson

Just bought a 50 inch from Walmart; hope it was the right decision. Emerson has been around in electronics for a long time. Picture is great

I have had a flat screen Emerson since 2006 and it even hit the ground one time and still I have never had one thing go wrong with it

Had one for a year didn't have any problems with it

I've had my lil emerson for 3 years now it was passed down to me from my mom and I believe she's had it a few years before passing it so pretty good for a cheap T.V..

32 Devant

We bought it last 2010 and we don't have any problem with this brand since we bought it. And the price is good and the technology is superb compared to the leading brands in the market today. Any brand in the market even how high tech it is, it depends on the owner how to adjust its functions and to manipulate it.

Got 32 led still good after 6years..

It's great and wonderful

Devant is the best T.V. we had

V 4 Comments
33 BPL

It is best T.V. ever and longest lasting


34 Sansui

Good picture quality and sound...

Sharp display

good brand

We have a 42 inch Sansui that we think is one of the best V ever bought and we've owned RCA Magnavox Panasonic and even Vizio which was the worst T.V.. But this T.V. Sansui is one of the best I've ever owned it is like the Cadillac of all TVs

35 Element

Heard negative things about this brand. But I own a 50 inch in this brand, never had a problem with it bought a warranty with it and I love it.

Purchased a 32 six years ago and my grandson is still using it today! Got a 58 2years ago no problems. For the money you can't beat them!

I have a 40in amd I have no problems with it

Had my element 55" with built-in jbl subwoofer and surround sound since 2012 never had any problems. It has a decent 1080p picture and the sound is the best I've ever heard. No need to turn the volume up past ten its that good!

36 Seiki

Seiki is garbage. My 48" lasted a year and 2 months before it stopped working. My recommendation would be to buy a more expensive brand that will last way longer than this cheap garbage.

T.V. was less than a year old, and started getting lines across the top of the screen. Seiki stated that since I did not purchase it at the store (it was given to me as an unopened box), the warranty was no good. Take your chances if you must.

Bought a 60 inch, and 2 years later no problems!
Love it

Seem a little cheaper than Logik?

Excellent T.V. with low price.

46 Proscan

I have one really sharp and clear. Should be in the top 10. And it is great for gaming

I've had it for seven years and still like new. Very pleased!

I've had a proscan hdtv for almost 6 years now, and the picture and sound are still great. Underrated brand

This is the best T.V. I've ever owned. Have never had any issues! The only thing I can say is work on the volume!

I have an old Zenith floor model T.V. and it works better then my flat screen. Great pic/sound

It's a very good T.V.

48 Sceptre

I have had this T.V. for 3 years now! Never had a problem with it! Cheap & good quality. I would recommend this T.V.!

Had a 31 inch 1080p for over 2 years now and is still going strong. However, there are like 2 dead pixels on it.

Needs a clearer view, and my volume goes up and down on it own sometimes. Just purchase it Feb. 2014.
