Top Picks The Latest Top 10 (2014-2015) HDTVs – For 2015 the top of the line TVs are 4K Ultra HD TVs. These TVs have four times the resolution of Full HD and are going to be big in 2015. This is the same resolution as the movie theater. Native 4K Content from Netflix, Infinity (Comcast), DirecTV, ESPN and others will be coming in 2015. Many of the latest TVs are 3D Ready, which means that they can show both regular HD (without glasses), or 3D programming (with 3D glasses).

There are far fewer Full HD TVs this year, as most of the higher end sets now have 4K resolution. The newest LED TVs are very thin, lower in weight, and have high contrast and low energy consumption. OLED TVs are now available in 4K resolution, but only from LG. We also are seeing more Smart TVs with internet capability and WiFi connectivity (including Netflix streaming) and 2015 TVs with Quad Core Processors, to speed up Smart TV functions. The big push in 2015 will be in the introduction of 4K TVs by all manufacturers. See our 2015 HDTV Buying Guide to help you select a TV. Below are the newest highly rated Top Ten models for 2014 & 2015 that are currently covered by Smart-Review.
