Finding a new television for your home is not that difficult. The best 50+ inch TVs under $1000 can provide you with great image quality as well as great features for an accessible price tag. I am not saying that $1,000 is cheap by any means, but the following models are the best in this sector, bringing you a bigger bang for your buck.
Our first contestant on our small lineup for the best 50+ inch TVs under $1000 is the Samsung 5300 Series Smart LED TV. This model is quite the beast in sheep’s clothing. For starters, the model is coming with a massive 50-inch panel that provides us with a full HD resolution at 1920 x 1080 pixels. This is then helped out by the dynamic contrast ratio of 3,500,000:1 and a refresh rate sitting at 120 Hz. Audio is provided by 2x 10 Watt SRS TheaterSound HD speakers. The model is part of the Samsung smart TV lineup so you do get access to Samsung’s applications, web browser and the Smart Hub. As far as connectivity goes we do get 3x HDMI ports, 1x component port, 1x composite port, 2x USB 2.0 ports, digital audio (optical port), audio out, DVI and RF ports as well. For less than $1,000 this model is one of the best TVs in this category.
Next up on our list is the Toshiba 50L5200U 50-inch television. This model managed to grab my attention thanks to its very thin and lightweight design. Not only does it look absolutely great, but it also means that you get a great space saving design. You get a 50-inch LCD LED edge-lit panel with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels a brightness of 400 cd per square meter, 5000:1 contrast ratio, 8 ms response time and 120 Hz refresh rate. For connectivity, there are 3x HDMI ports on the side of the device, 1x rear PC input, 1x side USB port (music and photos), 1x digital audio and 1x composite a/v port as well. The model packs a lot of great features allowing you to get the best image quality out there. With good connectivity and good value for money this model is amongst the best 50+ inch TVs in the market.
Last, but by no means least on our lineup of the best 50+ inch TVs, we find the LG 50PM4700 Smart TV. Unlike the other two models this does come with a resolution of only 1024 x 768 pixels, but it does use a plasma panel. You get 3D capabilities and a refresh rate of 600 Hz. The model packs a massive 3,000,000:1 contrast ratio, which allows the TV to deliver great image quality with deep dark areas and very bright areas as well. You get temperature controls, 8 picture modes, real cinema 24p support, 3x A/V modes and tons of other great features. There are 7 sound modes and tons of settings for those as well. Access to 3D content streaming, 3D games, app store, Skype and support for a full browser are all thrown into the mix. You get Wi-Fi, DLNA, 1x RF, 1x antenna, 2x component, 1x optical, 3x HDMI, 1x D-Sub, 2x USB, 1x RJ-45 and many more ports.
Depending on your budget or on your needs, these models can tackle a wide array of challenges. From the LED-backlit Samsung model with Smart TV features, to the very thin design of the Toshiba or the massive refresh rate and great contrast of the LG model, all of these are some of the best 50+ inch TVs under $1000. If you are in the market for a new model, each of these should be great investments.
