The 2010 Gizmodo Gift Guide: TVs

Sure, you're probably not going to buy your nanna a 65-inch behemoth. But your gift to your family might be the gift of a big screen. Here are our suggestions.

Best

Panasonic Viera TH-P50VT20A, $2,499 I can hardly believe that this TV is only $2,500... Considering the engineers at Panasonic (including the ones who came from Pioneer's Kuro development) completely redesigned the phosphors inside for 3D capability, this is an absolute bargain of brilliance. [Panasonic]

Samsung 55-Inch 9000 Series $10,000 If luxury is your thing, then there really is only one possible option. Samsung's 9000 Series LED screams luxury in every possible way, from the $10K price tage to the touchscreen remote to the razor thin display. Only for the wealthy though... [Samsung]

Sony KDL52LX900, $4,999 Sony's Bravia TVs are far and away the best solution for IPTV on the big screen. With partnerships with Yahoo!7, ABC iView, SBS and heaps more, watching content on demand is Sony's specialty. The picture quality is pretty good too! [Sony]

Budget

Kogan KGNPRO19VDA, $279 For less than $300, Kogan will send you a 19-inch TV with built in PVR, 1366 x 768 resolution and side loading DVD player built into the TV. It can also support a 12V input, making it a great travel companion... [Kogan]

Toshiba 22AV700A, $549 Toshiba's cheapest TV is a corker: $549 for a HD screen, integrated HD tuner, HDMI CEC support and dual HDMI inputs make this a great TV for the bedroom or spare room. Bargain! [Toshiba]

LG LD350, $499 LG's entry-level screen is perfect for games with its AV mode, while the Clear Voice II technology boosts the clarity of dialogue through the internal speaker. For under $500, that's a win. [LG]
