March 29, 2012: We are in the process of reviewing 3D TVs to possibly upgrade our current HD LCD TVs. If we were to buy today, we would buy the Samsung UN55D8000 (List $3,600 now on sale for $2,000!!)   If you have any models you want us to review not on the list below, then send your request to us at: 3D_HDTV_Reviews@ForBestAdvice(remove).com

We started our search with the November 2011 issue of Consumer Reports. This issue of Consumer Reports (CR) makes recommendation for "the Best Products of the Year" in what they say are "500+ top picks and great buys."  This issue is timed with the holidays and seems to give a broad range of products and prices that are good, but might not be ideal for each user, thus making it a good starting point. I'd trust it more than walking into a big box store and asking the salesperson what is the best product for a budget since sales staff are very often motivated by special promotions to move certain brands.  The small "high end" stores might be more motivated to sell models with higher markups and less online competition.  First thing to notice is our recommended product isn't on their list.
