A list of TVs, monitors, and media boxes that FlatpanelsHD recommends based on our extensive testing and research. Before you jump to the list it is important to understand why we recommend these screens; every screen has advantages and disadvantages, and no TV or monitor is perfect – yet. Therefore, we list pros and cons for each product, and we suggest that you read our reviews to find out more.
Last updated 20.07.2017 - see bottom for changelog.
We also give out Awards. TVs or monitors that perform extraordinarily well are awarded with either our Highly Recommended Award or Award. See the award list here: FlatpanelsHD Awards
We have not seen every TV or monitor available on the market so some recommendations are based on other trusted reviewers’ opinion, but most recommendations are based on our own reviews and findings. You are very welcome to give feedback in the comments. We also review TVs and monitors on our Danish site FlatpanelsDK.
These TVs are recommended for daily TV watching in the living room, and thus satisfy many different viewing needs. We consider picture quality most important but we also evaluate factors such as ease of use. The order of the list is random.
LG B6 OLED (2016)
Great picture quality Stunning HDR webOS is user-friendly
A cheaper and smaller but functional TV is required for other rooms in the house such as the kitchen or bedroom. These TVs are inexpensive but offer the most basic TV functions. The order of the list is random.
Picture quality on digital TV Viewing angles Low power consumption
These TVs are recommended based on fast response time, low input lag, and high motion resolution. The factors are important if you seek a TV for gaming or fast action-paced content viewing. The list includes both LCD/LED and plasma TV suggestions. The order of the list is random.
These monitors are recommended based on accurate color reproduction, high color detailing and quality panels. Any graphic or photography artist, professional or amateur, need a proper monitor for working with images. The order of the list is random.
These monitors offer basic monitor features and a pleasant picture that the user can endure after long hours at the office or home office. Color reproduction is fairly good but not crucial. Good ergonomic adjustability is considers important. The order of the list is random.
