Walk into any TV showroom or peruse any ad, and you'll be bombarded with claims about the latest, greatest features—eye-popping 3D, TVs that can stream movies and more from the Internet, LED and 240Hz technologies that raise LCD picture quality to new heights, and superfine 1080p resolution.

Some claims might be overblown, but most features will be worth the money for certain viewers. This report will help you decide what makes sense for you. Our latest Ratings of more than 140 LCD and plasma TVs (including 3D models, which are all available to subscribers), the most ever, have no shortage of fine choices with excellent picture quality, including lower-priced sets with few bells and whistles.
