    Rating Average

    Samsung C900 Considered to be the best among the LED TV line of Samsung, the C9000 LED 3D TV offers one of the best image quality of its kind. HD images are displayed in sharp detail, giving viewers an astonishing viewing experience. Vibrant colors and the levels of black give this LED 3D TV the ability to impress even the most picky HD content fans out there. The 3D glasses included are not the most comfortable, especially for people who are not used to wearing bulky glasses when watching TV, but it is not something that will deter the viewer from having an enjoyable viewing experience. The main downside of this LED 3D TV, however, is its ability to connect with other devices. Special adapters are needed for devices to be connected to the TV. These special adapters are already included in the package, but it does require an extra amount of work compared to the connectivity of regular TVs. Other than that, the Samsung C9000 is a great LED 3D TV and it deserves a 4 out of 5 rating.

    Panasonic TC-P50VT20 3D Plasma HDTV

    Rating Average

    Panasonic TC-P50VT20 3D Plasma HDTV Aside from being a capable TV for both 3D and non-3D content, the TC-P50VT20 also offers online content that can be accessed through an intuitive user interface. Streaming Internet content is easy to access, but there is only a few content providers at the moment compared to computer apps-based streaming content. But still, there is already a considerable amount of content from a few content partners like YouTube, Pandora, Picasa, Amazon Video on Demand and Twitter. YouTube alone provides an almost endless supply of streaming content so the minimal number of content partners is not really an issue. The media player supports audio and photos too, so video images are not the only ones that will look good on this plasma TV. Its support for other media and streaming Internet content is a big draw for consumers, but underneath it all, its strength lies in it its wonderful image quality whether it's dishing out normal TV content or 3D movies. We give this TV an excellent 5 out of 5 rating.
