The Super Bowl is almost here! Who will you be rooting for this year? The Kansas City Chiefs? The Seattle Seahawks? The Denver Broncos? How about the San Francisco 49’ers?
No matter who you want to win, you’re going to need a great television to watch all the action on so you can see every move your favorite players make. Of course, finding that perfect TV for your living room will take quite a bit of research – check out Consumer Reports or CNET to get all the specs and reviews you need to make your final decision.

This Samsung is a 60-inch plasma HDTV that also offers 3D viewing. It’s known for its brilliant colors and dark blacks, and itself is one of the more stylish models on the market. It’s received some great reviews all across the board – the main setback are, of course, the price, and the remote.
This LED Smart TV model of LG is one of the higher-end televisions (with the price to prove it). Superior color accuracy, bright picture quality, and an easy-to-use remote are all qualities that make this television tops. The LA8600 is exceptionally thin and light and its design is sleek. You’ll love the perfect picture on this 60-inch screen from the first throw to touchdown.
