Among the best LED TVs for 2013, there is the Samsung UNF8000 Series with its superior features and excellent picture. Equally interesting is Sony's W900A LED TV with the new 'Triluminous' backlight technology - the first to use Quantum Dots technology as a backlight source. These HDTVs are expensive, but here we are talking about high-end HDTVs that have transformed backlight technology into cutting-edge science.

Recently, Panasonic confirmed that the company will exit the plasma TV business completely by March 2014; much faster than expected. Definitely, this is sad news to many who appreciate the superior yet affordable picture quality of plasma televisions.

LED/LCD TV specs seem to imply that the ability of a display to reduce motion blur is not so much a function of the pixel response time inasmuch as of the display panel refresh rate; the implication is that a higher panel refresh rate yields less motion blur. But...

To what extent a faster refresh rates reduce motion blur?
Is LCD response time related to the panel refresh rate?

TV response times have long been among the battlegrounds between LED LCD TV makers, with some quoting response times as low as 1msec. Is this fast enough? Is it really possible to compare response times between different TV makers? #ledtv_response_times

Up to not long ago, you had no choice for a direct-view TV; all sets were of the same kind, using old but reliable CRT technology.

That is no longer the case. What used to be just a popular laptop screen technology ― LCD ― has now become the dominant TV display technology in the home. In particular, the LED TV has become the TV of choice as more consumers are preferring larger 46- and 55-inch sets; at these screen sizes, the CCFL LCD TV has simply disappeared from TV makers' lineups.

2013 has brought more 4K TVs than we ever expected but... this new 4K TV hardware is very expensive; a typical 65-inch 4K Ultra HD TV with nothing but a mid-range feature set sells for $7,000!

Is a 4K TV worth the expensive price? What is 4K technology, and what are its implications on home entertainment - is it really worth jumping onto the 4K bandwagon?

Finally, the much awaited OLED TV is a consumer reality! It is impossibly thin, relatively light, most eco-friendly, and yes... it is the display technology that supports the best TV picture.

But your OLED TV options are very much limited to just two very expensive 55-inch models; and for the expensive price tag, you will be getting a curved TV!
