Sony KDL-37L5000

 

Produces relatively deep black levels for an entry-level LCD; nice selection of picture controls and energy-saving options; plenty of connectivity with three HDMI and two component-video inputs; sleek design.

A bit more expensive than some entry-level LCDs; slight greenish tinge to some colors; less-even screen uniformity.

Although it costs a tad more than bargain-basement models, the Sony KDL-L5000 series makes up for it with above-basement design and picture quality.
