This 50-inch LCD from Sony offers media and 3D, but lacks performance power.

Sony KDL-50R550A

 

The big-screen Sony R520/R550 series offers the best value you'll see from the company this year.

Excellent value ; Very good picture quality ; Impressive styling

Better value TVs available ; Smart TV can be slow ; Screen mirroring didn't work in tests
