Samsung PN51F4500BFXZASamsung 51" 720p Plasma HDTV
Store: Walmart
Price: $348 with in-store pickup
Lowest By: $120

Is It Worth It?: "This Samsung's main selling points are its price tag and the intrinsic picture quality associated with plasma TVs," says Reviewed. While it doesn't offer modern-day features like the ability to stream apps, this Editors' Choice TV does offer on-board software that's advanced for an entry-level series. For instance, users have options for RGB modes, custom color space selection, 10-point white balance, and gamma. The TV also has the same black optimizer setting found on Samsung's high-end F8500. Otherwise, this 2013 TV features 720p resolution and two HDMI ports. Opt for in-store pickup to dodge the $44.97 shipping surcharge.

Is It Worth It?: At $159, the Sceptre X322BV-HDR is at its second-lowest price ever. (We saw it for $10 less on Black Friday). And although this TV maxes out at 720p resolution, for its size and price, it's still an unbeatable bargain. It features LED backlighting and three HDMI ports, the latter of which is more than what your typical TV in this size category offers.
