4. LG Electronics 47-Inch 1080p 120Hz Smart TV
Packed with tons of great features, this smart TV set has one of the most attractive interfaces of any smart TV on the list. LG’s TVs get high marks for both picture quality and reliability. 47 inches is a good size for most living rooms. It’s hard to find a 60-inch or 70-inch TV that won’t blow your budget, so a TV of this size is a good “compromise” choice for folks who would love a bigger TV, if only they had the money for it. If you’re looking for a smart TV with a friendly UI, this is one of your best bets.
Price: $649 (35% off MSRP)
5. Samsung UN28H4000 28-Inch 720p 60Hz LED TV
If you’re looking for a smaller TV without a lot of bells and whistles, this 28-incher should fit the bill nicely. It’s a “dumb TV” without any apps installed, but that can be a good thing if you’re shopping for an elderly family member who doesn’t want or need those features. This small TV has a small price tag, which is great if you’re shopping for a secondary TV for your kitchen, garage, den, kid’s room, or bedroom. Just remember that this TV costs so little because it has a pretty small screen, so it may not be ideal for all living rooms.
