|July 2010 Issue #040 -- LG and Samsung LCD HDTVs for 2010|
We continue with our series of HDTV reviews for 2010, this time covering the latest LG plasma TVs, a roundup of some of the best cheap plasma TVs for home entertainment, and Samsung latest CCFL LCD TVs.
2010 LG Plasma TVs
Unfortunately many would often ignore LG altogether when it comes to plasma TVs, and instead focus on the other two leaders in the field, Panasonic and Samsung. But those doing so will often be missing not only on some of the best plasma HDTV deals, but even more so, some of the best valid HDTVs around.
Best Cheap plasma TVs for 2010
Up to 2008, what represented a cheap plasma HDTV option still meant an expensive purchase. Things have changed. Last year you could buy a premium 42" 1080p HDTV for $1,000; this year, for the same price, you can buy a 50". And if a 720p option will suffice, a 42" plasma TV will cost just $500!
Despite the inexpensive price, you still get an HDTV capable of a relatively solid picture suitable for most home use. You see, 'cheap' does not imply poor quality, it just means they cost less - mainly as a result of a reduced feature set.
As expected, there are differences in features and performance between the selected models that may make one better than another for your specific needs. That's where our Best Cheap Plasma TV roundup comes in - to help you pick up the best cheap plasma TV option for your needs.

Samsung 2010 LCD TVs
But it is Series 6 line of premium Samsung LCD TVs - with its C610, C630, C650, and C670 sub-series, that represents Samsung bestselling HDTVs for 2010. As further expressed in our LCD TV review for Samsung Series 6 LCD TVs, these offer a most appealing mix of features, style, and performance at a most affordable price. This is also the series that represents the bestselling LCD TV models from Samsung for 2010.
Moving up the 2010 line of Samsung LCD TVs, one finds Samsung Series 7 with the only model in the series being the 46-inch LN46C750 HDTV. Series 7 introduces Samsung LCD line to 3D and 240Hz dejudder processing but otherwise, it is the 3D equivalent to Samsung C650 LCD series.
It is definitely a massive line of LCD HDTVs. But what is really so special about the 2010 line of Samsung LCD TVs is that despite these lack the latest LED backlight - thus missing the thinness and energy efficiency of the much touted edge-lit LED TVs, these conventional CCFL-based Samsung LCD TVs deliver an equally extensive feature set and a great overall picture performance - one that in certain aspects of picture quality even exceeds that of edge-lit LED TVs - for significantly less than their LED TV counterparts.
