One of the best deals we've found on a smart TV this week was for the LG LA6200 series, which is on sale at Amazon. The Google TV comes with many of the features you'd want in a higher-end model, such as 3D, LG's comprehensive smart platform that allows you to access apps like Netflix and Hulu Plus, and LG's Cloud service. It doesn't have the best picture quality, but if you're looking for a large smart TV at a decent price, the 47-inch LA6200's sale price is attractive at only $708 with free shipping. The package also comes with four pairs of 3D glasses so you can start watching immediately.
We couldn't find many problems with the Samsung EH5300. The one downside is a narrow viewing angle, so prime time parties might not be the best idea. For more intimate gatherings, though, it's a solid choice. Great color and motion performance will ensure that you get a lot out of that new episode of Sleepy Hollow. Plus, it still comes with Samsung's Smart Hub so you can catch up with the right apps. This deal through Amazon drops the price down for the 46-inch model to $587 with free shipping.
If you're looking for something a bit bigger, you could check out this relatively inexpensive Seiki model on sale at TigerDirect. For $1,199 with free shipping you get 65 inches of 1080p picture. It doesn't have built-in WiFi or access to apps, but it has three HDMI ports so you can connect multiple devices.
Sharp is known for its giant screens more than its picture quality or features, so if you're looking for that model that's going to take over your entire living room, you could check out this 60-inch smart TV. Sears has it for $1,099 with free shipping or the option for free in-store pickup. Customers can also save 10 percent on a Bose CineMate 1 SR digital speaker system and members get $50 back in points when they purchase a stand or mount.
We recently reviewed the Samsung F6300 and found that it would be a decent purchase for the consumer looking to get smart TV apps for less. It doesn't have 3D and the build is kind of cheap, but the picture is stunning for the price and Samsung's Smart Hub is easy to use and solid across the board. The 55-inch model is on sale at Dell for $1,097 and a purchase includes a free $250 promotional gift card and free shipping.
The final option on this list is also the most inexpensive. While Sceptre isn't as big a name as Samsung or LG, the company is well-known for its budget TVs. For example, the 50-inch X505BV-FHD LCD has three HDMI ports and a USB port and little else, but it's on sale at Walmart for $419 with free shipping or free in-store pickup. If your wallet is feeling a little slim right now, but you've been wanting that big screen for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, here's your shot to get in on the action.
