At A Glance

Sony's premium TV earns a stellar score for high-definition performance and also gets points for design.

DLP set aced our image-quality tests handily, and has unique, easily accessible front-mounted ports.

This budget model offers pleasing image quality in a simple, easy-to-use design--but others offer more for the same money.

Though it shares some components with the HP LC3200N, this set doesn't have as many ports or image controls as the HP.
