Recommendations: Best TVs, TV audio & media players

15 Dec 2008 | Rasmus Larsen |

These are the best TVs and best media players available on the market. FlatpanelsHD’s recommendations are based on extensive testing and research. We list pros and cons for each product and suggest that you read our reviews to understand why we recommend the product. Every product has advantages and disadvantages – no TV is perfect.

Update 20.11.2018: LG B8 OLED, Fire TV Stick 4K & Xbox One X added, discontinued 2017 models have been removed
Update 14.8.2018: The list now includes recommended TV audio products as FlatpanelsHD has strengthened focus on TV audio.
Update 13.12.2017: The list has been completely redesigned with a new fresh look, review scores, and sorting/filtering options. We have also decided to no longer include PC monitors. The list features the best TVs and media players, and will in the future be updated every time we publish a new review.

Our recommendations

We have been testing TVs and displays for more than 15 years but we have not seen every TV or media player available on the market. Most products on the list will link to our extensive review but sometimes we include recommendations that are based on other trusted reviewers’ opinion.

We also give out Awards for extraordinary performance. If a product has received an Award it will be shown in the list below. For more on our criteria check: FlatpanelsHD Awards
