See FlatpanelsHD's list of TV, monitor, and streaming boxes recommendations. The list is updated regurlarly. Last update: August 7, 2014.
Sony, Sharp and Philips are on the bandwagon and will release TVs based on Android TV in 2015. Android TV combines streaming services, apps, and a game console in one platform. It will also be available in small TV streamer boxes.
We bring you a full overview of Samsung's 2014 TV line-up. Samsung has a range of new curved & flat Ultra HD & Full HD TVs. But plasma TVs are almost dead and there are no new OLED TVs in sight.
LG has a range of new OLED TVs coming out in 2014 as well as new Ultra HD and Full HD TVs. LG is also introducing a new webOS-based Smart TV platform that looks promising. Could 2014 be the year where LG establishes itself as the leading Korean TV innovator?
Panasonic is introducing their new AX900 with “plasma-like picture quality” and a range of new Full HD models – some very basic, some with advanced features. Panasonic is also introducing a new Smart TV user interface called Life+ that recommends relevant content.

LG has announced a new D42P monitor based on the passive 3D technology with much cheaper polarized 3D glasses. The monitor is being exhibited at CES 2011 in Las Vegas.

LG released W2363D based on 3D technology with active shutter glasses in 2010. Now LG has announced D42P, a 3D monitor with passive 3D technology.

The passive 3D technology has advantages such as much cheaper 3D glasses, no flicker, and low crosstalk but disadvantages such as half 3D resolution compared to the Full HD 3D experience with active 3D based monitors.

LG D42P enables gamers to enjoy their PC games in 3D. It also has a HDMI 1.4 input to allow users to connect other 3D devices such as a PS3 or a Blu-ray player.
