LG 50LB6300 50-inch LED

For most TVs, being Smart – meaning being able to connect to the Internet – isn't a selling point, since the on-screen interfaces for searching the Web are beyond clunky, and there are tons of other net-connected devices that let you stream video from Amazon, Hulu or Netflix. LG's latest line of Smart TVs are the welcome exception to the rule, with the company's proven motion-sensing remote control, as well as a new snappy, beautiful interface (called webOS) that makes it easy and intuitive to bring up panes of Web-based info alongside whatever you're watching, or to quickly toggle back and forth between traditional channels and various streaming services.
